Debian Configuration :: How To Connect Wifi From CLI

Jan 7, 2014

I did a netinstall earlier today (latest version, amd64) on my Dell XPS laptop and ended up with a minimal installation because I couldn't connect to the internet. Now I'm trying to get online without a desktop environment.

I have an Intel Centrino 1030, so I downloaded and installed the firmware [URL].... with a usb, then rebooted. My searches have turned up a lot of instructions involving a utility called iwconfig and wpasuppliant, but these are apparently not installed. I don't really know much about it, but my /etc/network/interfaces file looks rather empty:

Code: Select all# The loopback interface
 auto lo
 iface lo inet loopback

Shouldn't there be something like wlan0 there? The network card does show up with lspci

Debian Configuration :: Network - Cannot Connect To Any Other Websites And Apt Will Not Connect To Any Servers

Feb 18, 2011

I am using Squeeze and all appears OK at first... I have a DHCP lease, PING to router works, apache servering fine in and outside the network, Epiphany seems to connects to default debian.org only, BUT I cannot connect to any other websites and apt will not connect to any servers. I installed once, tried to fix problem, gave up and reinstalled and still have the same problem.

I unistalled Network Manager thinking that was the problem, but still the same issue. Is there a default firewall blocking certain connections or am I missing something I'm supposed to know about? I installed some non-free firmware in the beginning of install and all worked... and I connected fine when downloading packages during install.

Debian Installation :: 7.4 - WiFi Configuration Fails

Apr 8, 2014

I've been installing multiple versions of ubunutu over years and now I better understand why I faced always problems with wifi configuration on these different baselines : Debian root of course.

Now on Debian 7.4 :
The Broadcom BCM4313 driver is not loaded by default (not free product) for my wifi card. This is stated thru the UNCLAIMED declaration

Code: Select all 
sudo lshw -c network
 *-network UNCLAIMED
       description: Network controller
       product: BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller
       vendor: Broadcom Corporation
       physical id: 0

[Code] ...

Unclaimed means : no driver found (no kernel association)

So I installed the driver located in the non-free backports by adding this target into the repository

Code: Select alldeb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free

and install :

Code: Select allsudo apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-brcm80211
sudo modprobe brcm80211

Check seems OK :

Code: Select allsudo lshw -c network

  *-network
       description: Wireless interface
       product: BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller
       vendor: Broadcom Corporation
       physical id: 0

[Code] ....

I can't connect with wlan0, it doesn't work. I found information here regarding WPA2/PSK wifi configuration on debian : [URL] ....

so I added this setup to my interfaces file an got :

Code: Select allauto lo
iface lo inet loopback

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
 wpa-ssid Hznteam-Datacenter
 # hexadecimal psk is encoded from a plaintext passphrase
 wpa-psk 12345678901234567890123456

It's worth ! no more wifi network are detected and ifconfig gives no ip address allocated :

Code: Select allwlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 78:e4:00:4e:49:a3 
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

Debian Configuration :: WiFi Not Working On HP Omen 15

Apr 17, 2016

I am new to linux and decided to use Debian. I installed it on my laptop and have a few problems.First one is my WIFI.

Laptop type: HP Omen 15
Wifi adapter: Intel Wireless 7260n
rfkill list output:0: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
So wifi is not displaying
Kernel: 3.16.0-4-amd64
Debian version: 8.4
gui: LXDE
URL....

But they see in rfkill list the adapter.How to make this adapter work?I did this with no result:

nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
in file add:
#Fixing a bug that prevents wifi from working on HP Omen
blacklist acer_wmi

I would like to learn more about Linux, but before experimenting I need a working system. The plan for me is to run this as my native machine with vms on top of it with other OS.

Debian Configuration :: How To Get /etc/network/interfaces To See Usb Wifi

Debian Configuration :: Roaming Wifi Without Managing App

# The primary network interface allow-hotplug eth0iface eth0 inet dhcp
# Wireless Setup auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet dhcp wireless-essid linksysn

wireless automatically connects to my home wireless network (linksysn). But suppose I wanted to take this laptop to the coffee house where they have free wifi. I am assuming that my wireless will not automatically connect to any other wifi hotspot except linksysn. So how do i set it up to roam like NM did?

Debian Configuration :: USB Wifi Adapter Frequently Disconnecting

May 20, 2015

Using a USB ISO, I recently installed Debian 8.0 Jessie (64-bit, Xfce DE) to a new computer. I usually lose my Wifi connection after 1-3 minutes when donwloading/uploading at around max. speed 4 Mbps/512 kbps. Sometimes it will last 15+ minutes.

When lightly browsing it can usually stay connected for 15-30 minutes. I have to disable and enable Wifi using NetworkManager to connect again. If I remember correctly, there were problems with the Wifi connection even during the installation of Debian.

This Wifi USB adapter works fine on my old computer with Debian 7.7 (32-bit). No problems with the Wifi connection yesterday on my old computer during 10+ hours of activity.

This Wifi adapter also works fine on this new computer when I boot from a live USB (Rescatux 0.30.2) downloading and uploading at max. speed for 1+ hour.

I already tried some suggestions I found online, but they didn't work:

* changing Wifi channels between 1, 6, 11 in my router settings
* changing WPA-WPA2 to WPA2 in my router settings
* ignore IPv6 in NetworkManager
* change probe_wait_ms from 500 ms to higher value by adding Code: Select alloptions mac80211  probe_wait_ms=1000 or Code: Select alloptions mac80211  probe_wait_ms=3000 to /etc/modprobe.d/mac80211.conf and rebooting
* disable Power Management for Wifi adapter (not supported)
* ...

I can also post the output of commands from Rescatux or my old computer if needed.

Output of commands on Debian 8.0 64-bit (I edited out some info, MAC, ...; not sure if that is important):

Code: Select alluname -a

Debian Configuration :: Swap USB WiFi For Broadcom HP Mini 110

Aug 21, 2015

A friend gave me an HP Mini 110 that I can actually use in some situations. I installed Debian 8 with LXDE. It runs well except for the expected lack of driver for the Broadcom 4312 wireless chip. I installed wl using the method shown at [URL] ....

It works fine except that it takes very long to set up WiFi at boot (1 min 30 sec or more every boot--this is a rather frail Atom processor) and the WiFi reception seems poor (65% from an excellent router at 25 feet).

I'm thinking of getting a Panda 300Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter (reportedly using the Ralink RT5372 chipset) and removing the Broadcom driver. I have 2 questions:

1. Could I expect the Panda not to slow my boot time so much? I'm not knowledgeable enough to tell whether there is stable kernel support of this device, although the manufacturer says repeatedly that it works with most Linux distributions.

2. To remove wl is Code: Select allmodprobe -r wl the correct approach?

Debian Configuration :: WiFi Connects But Can't Ping - No Internet

Aug 27, 2015

I've been using Debian for about 6-7 months now. I've had a bit of a major networking problem for the past 4 months or so that I've been trying to fix - specifically, it started when I upgraded to Jessie. I can connect to wifi just fine, and sometimes I can even use the internet for brief periods of time (exceedingly rarely). Then... nothing. No network access, period. I can't ping any outside servers, I can't ping other computers on my network, and I can't even ping my router. Pages I try to load just stay "connecting" for all eternity, network printing fails, and so on.

So after four months of searching online (I've read through way more wireless documentation than I care to say), I finally gave up and admitted that maybe I screwed something up during upgrade to Jessie (as a matter of fact, I did, I had to do the upgrade in two increments [somehow] because my root partition was too tiny by mistake) and I did a clean install. Since I had /home on a separate partition, I was able to keep all my user files, but all settings regarding networking were wiped. So after installing firmware-iwlwifi so I can use my wireless card, I tried connecting to wireless! Success! Then I tried connecting to the internet... success! Briefly. The next morning I tried using the internet again, and it failed in exactly the same pattern as before.

I don't know much about what's going on here, but here's what I do have available:

I do have to use firmware-iwlwifi, which I installed by doing apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi. I don't think it's an issue with the wireless card itself (hardware-wise), the laptop dual-boots Windows 7 (that I never use anymore), and Windows 7 is able to connect to the internet just fine. Connecting directly to my router by ethernet cable works fine, I have perfect internet/network access then.

I can confirm that my laptop is receiving an IP address and that it is using ARP correctly to get the MAC address of my router (I confirmed this by doing the arp command, it has the MAC address correct, I checked from another computer with my router's config page) All other computers on my network work perfectly with my router. To confirm the router/its configuration isn't at fault, I did a full factory reset of the router, but to no avail.

Out of curiosity I tried installing Wireshark (using an ethernet cable to download it) to monitor what happens when I try to access a webpage. I'm no expert on networking, but I noticed something out place when I compare a capture from the affected computer to a capture from one operating normally - there are a lot of STP packets showing up. I did some checking around, it looks like STP is involved in bridging and more complex networking setups (involving switches, for example)... but it shouldn't be found on a home network, especially where there's no bridging whatsoever. These STP packets don't show up on packet captures done from any other computer. I've attached a packet capture from the affected computer here, since the forums won't let me attach a .pcapng file.

Here's the output from a few commands I ran during past troubleshooting sessions:

Code: Select allsudo ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr e0:db:55:b5:fe:06 
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:12455 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:7781 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000

Debian Configuration :: WiFi Connection Isn't Working After Install?

Mar 27, 2016

I just installed the lastest stable Debian (gnome) today and what I was most afraid just happened: my laptop's wifi isn't working properly, it isn't turning on. This had already hapened on livecd.

In the laptop's chassis leds, the wifi led apears as green. When I click to turn on the wifi, as shown on the picture the button, quickly disappears and appears again not seeming to have any effect at all at turning on the wifi but not showing any error either!

Picture :

What's interesting about the wifi not working is that in the installation process I was able to connect to a wifi hotspot and it connected to the internet fine!

Now after installation was complete and my system did the reboot, I was no longer able to connect to the internet using wifi.

My wireless card is Atheros AR9565 and my LAN card is also Atheros.

Here is an output of lspci and lsmod which may have some leads about the problem.

Debian Configuration :: Console Only Version Wifi Setup?

Jan 23, 2011

I installed the base of Debian (only CD 1) without the desktop environment, so it is console only; also I am dual booting with Windows 7 x64 on this Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop... I have also successfully mounted my usb flash drive and CD drive; the one thing I am finding rather hectic is finding a way to connect to my wireless network with a "WPA2 Personal" Security and "TKIP/AES" Encryption with a Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card... I doubt that the drivers are actually installed, and Idk how to install them.Google searches on this yield confusing results, so I need help. So far, the most useful help I have found is the link posted here: http://en.community.dell.com/support-fo ... 29916.aspx but I have no idea on how to install that, if it is even what I need.

Debian :: Can't Connect To WiFi Hotspot With Login Page

Aug 4, 2015

I am trying to connect to a paid for hotspot service. There is no encryption for the wifi.

In Windows you connect to the hotspot, and then any webpage that you attempt to connect to results in you being redirected to their login page.

Once you have put a username and password into their page, the internet works. I know the hostname and IP address of the login page so actually I can go straight there if necessary.

With Debian I have tried Network Manager, WICD and command line iwconfig and dhclient.

With Network Manager or WICD the connection just will not start. It seems to connect to the hotspot then immediately fall off before you can go to the login page.

With iwconfig and dhclient I get mode Managed not-associated. Sometime dhclient seems to return an IP address sometimes not. I'm not sure if it's because it already has an address in it's lease lifetime.

I think that dhclients sends a ping once the connection is up to verify the link? But this will not work until the page is logged into.

Windows "just works" even warning you that you need a login page and then loading it. How I can use this wifi service with Linux?

Debian Configuration :: Upgraded 7.8 Aetheros AR9565 WiFi Card And No RDP

Apr 25, 2015

Because of workers here in my company I need a very secure operating system for laptops so I have chosen Debian 7.8. The laptop is Acer Aspire E11 (E3-112-C4NE). This laptop has a built-in wifi card Aetheros AR9565 :

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
lspci -nn
02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter [168c:0036] (rev 01)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Basically the stable 7.8 distribution cannot handle this wifi card, so I read on forums that I should upgrade my operating system. So I did as I read on the forum:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
nano /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian wheezy-backports main contrib non-free
apt-get update
apt-get -t wheezy-backports install firmware-atheros
apt-get -t wheezy-backports install linux-image-amd64
reboot
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After this the oprating system recognized the wifi card and loaded the "ath9k" driver. In the Grub the default operating system became :

Linux 3.16.0-0.bpo.4-686-pae

Because I want to restric the workers to access anything else except the designed inner network, I have uninstalled the Network Manager and set the network interfaces in the "/etc/network/interfaces" file as shown below:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

[Code] ....

This works, when the operating system boots, it automatically connects to my hidden SSID wiofi network. I can ping other computers on the same IP subnet (10.139.252.xxx).

This computer should connect to an XP running under virtualbox, having the IP address of 10.40.138.153. But it does not. On another laptop, running Ubuntu 14.05, having the same network configuration, (10.139.252.102) connects to the same XP under virtualbox with no problem....

For Ubuntu nothing is required to be installed on virtualbox, no extension pack, no guest addition, nothing. When I want to connect to XP via rdp, it asks for username and password and after that only a blue or black blank screen and nothing else... Even on the XP I see no sign of any activity that somebody would like to connect.

Checking the network traffic (tcpdump, nast) I see that the two computers are communicating but after a while the communication stops. The rdp XP its in another IP subnet, but Ubuntu can connect without any problem, Debian not...

In a specific context I want to automatically make operationnal some USB WiFI devices, deploying automaticaly firwmare (may be not free packages) depending on device ID (vendor ID/product ID). Dev device is a Netgear WNA1000 (driver ath9k, with htc_9271.fw firmware).

I tried to reset the USB bus (modprobe -vr ehci_hcd; modprobe -v ehci_hcd) but it's not really reliable, with sometimes kernel panic.

Is there an "official" way to "mount" the device (the system create the device wlan0) just after deploying the firmware? Maybe using udev ?
