I am running (K)Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 64bit on a Dell Latitude E6400, WiFi Card Intel 5100. Never had any problems with networking. Up to about 2 weeks ago. I do realize there have been quite a few posts with this network adaptor, but non really described the problem I have here.
What happens is that suddenly the WiFi LED on the computer stops blinking, the WiFi connection gets disrupted, and the device is not recognized anymore when checking ifconfig. Only cold restarting the machine helps then... it will work for a while (between 1 and 20 minutes) and then crash again.
On Windows 7 the card works perfectly fine. With Ubuntu 11.04 in Live CD mode I have the same effects (connection crashes after a while). Also tried booting an older kernel, no success.
My exact hardware:
I notived the following problems in /var/log/kern.log
The funny thing is that it works fine in a Fedora installation, which has an older kernel and older drivers, on the same laptop. The fact that the indicator light doesn't come in when the physical switch is turned on suggests it's something to do with that switch.
I just did a fresh wipe and install of Ubuntu 11.04 on my Dell D630 Latitude. I installed connected to the internet and ubuntu recognized I was missing firmware and I installed and rebooted. Now the "firmware missing" notice is gone but I don't know how to connect to my wifi. I can access internet with the ethernet cable.
This is the lspci: 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile PM965/GM965/GL960 Memory Controller Hub (rev 0c) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (primary) (rev 0c) 00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (secondary) (rev 0c)
I feel like I just need to add the wifi network, but I don't know what info to put into the fields.
I've installed successfully the ubuntu 9.10 netbook remix on my DELL Latitude 430.Everything work out of the box except the wifi, I cannot find a way to get working.Using the lshw command, I can see that the interface is listed, but status is disabled.On the Network Manager, status I get is device not ready.As a FYI, bluetooth seems working perfect (I've not tried to pair with any device)as this is the only roadblock I face before enjoying Ubuntu on my laptop.
I'm trying to start using Debian Squeeze 64b on my laptop, which is Dell Latitude D830 with Intel i965GM.
After Debian installation, when system should display some nice background and window which please me to log in, I see my screen gets blank, fuzzy, blank again, ...and after several times finaly all hangs. Surprisingly mouse pointer is displayed nicely and works. I can't use network on Debian becouse of windows authorization program which i can run in wine on KDE. This works on Kubuntu.
What I did already:
I installed KUBUNTU 10.04 LTS and it's doing job well.
I installed Debian Squeeze with options:
- enabled:base system, laptop
- disabled:graphical environment
After instalation I logged in on root account and did:
I have a new Dell Latitude e5510 with Intel integrated graphics processor in I3, the model should be something like HD mobile Intel GMA integrated graphics (not able to find more precise details even under Windows using everest).
Trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 from livecd this returns me a black screen after I choose to try ubuntu. I already tried to use options as well nolapci nomodeset but without results. The screen lights up the backlight is on and I go into kernel panic because starting to cycle on and off repeatedly icons keypad lock and block number.
To make Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 wireless card work on ubuntu, you just need to download the firmware from here decompress it and copy the ucode in /lib/firmware. This works in jaunty. My laptop is a HP Elitebook 8440p.
I have a new Thinkpad t510 laptop with an intel centrino wireless N card (no bluetooth). I installed ubuntu a couple weeks ago after I got another hard drive in the expansion bay. I have the drive partitioned into two sections, 250gb for file storage, and 250gb for the linux OS. Currently no other OS is installed on the other harddrive.
I have had everything perfect for the past couple weeks, but once i installed some updates today, my wireless fails to work now. Just some general info that you might ask me, lspci | grep Network, returns
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82577LM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 06) 03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 Furthermore, on the top right of my screen, my wireless is grey'd out and says no network devices available on hover.
Im trying to connect to my college wireless network. I have looked a thinkwiki and no one has posted any bugs. Any ideas on getting it working again?
Have an odd problem on a Dell Latitude 13 w/ a Intel WiFi 5100 card. The wifi antenna is disabled on startup into Ubuntu 10.04/64-bit. There's no hardware enable/disable that I can find.I have tried "sudo ifconfig wlan0 up" to enable it, the light for the wifi antenna comes on, but still no luck.I know the wifi works in Ubuntu, because if i load windows first, then reset into Ubuntu, once in a while it works just fine.
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 a a Dell D610 that is running a broadcom BMC943 internal wifi adapter. I've tried installing the wifi drivers off of Dell's website using the ndisgtk gui setup. It appears that whenever I setup the driver the OS can't apply it. It states that the wifi adapter is not on or installed. Here is what I get when I run iwconfig and lspci -n.
iwconfig: lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. lspci -n: 00:00.0 0600: 8086:2590 (rev 03) 00:02.0 0300: 8086:2592 (rev 03)
I've also edited the blacklist.conf file as well with no luck. I've spent 2 days trying to figure this out with no luck at all.
I have been unable to get both opensuse 11.2 and 11.3 32 bit versions work properly on my DELL Latitude E6410 laptop. With both 11.2 and 11.3 KDE Live CDs I get no graphical display when I attempt to boot into the Live system. VESA mode does not help either, only text mode works. So I installed the system in text mode but during the first boot the screen went blank again.
One peculiar thing is that 11.1 installs and boots fine, what gives? Is this even supported or I shouldn't even try to bother getting this setup to work? Has anyone been able to run opensuse 11.3 on a Core i7 integrated Intel graphics system with X system working?
I have Ubuntu 10.10 on a thinkpad X201. Wireless was working, but has stopped. It still works in windows, so it is not a hardware problem. iwlist wlan0 scan sees the available networks, but I cannot associate with any of them, including my own.
Last night was my first attempt to connect to a secured network, and nm-applet failed to make the connection even after entering the WEP encryption key and SSID. By turning networking off in nm-applet I was able to manually bring up the connection by editing /etc/network/interfaces and using ifup wlan0. (nm-applet seemed to be interfering as long as networking was turned on there.) Wireless was working perfectly until I rebooted. Now I can't get it to work at all. (There were some partially completed security updates which completed when I rebooted. I hope this wasn't the cause of the breakdown.)I notice that wpa_supplicant is always running. I tried killing it in case it might be interfering with the connection process, but something keeps restarting it.
I just got a new laptop equipped with some weird (at the present) hardware.
=> Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N100 => Atheros Communication Device 1083
During the squeeze install no network harware was detected. (no wired, no wireless) On the net I read the wireless-N100 should be supported from the kernel 2.6.37 At last I tried Ubuntu 11.04 (LIVE) and the wifi was working. I also tried Fedora 15 (LIVE) and the wifi was also working. (kernel 2.6.38)But I want to stick to Debian (I am using it since Potato) What could I do to get at least the Wireless-N100 working ?
I've recently partitioned off a section of my hard drive to run Ubuntu from and I'm having trouble with the network connections. In my device manager of Windows 7, it lists that my network adapters are
1. DW1520 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card
2. Intel(R) 82577LM Gigabit Network Connection
Is there something I'm not doing right in order to allow me to connect to a wireless connection? Are these devices even enabled in Linux systems?
I have a 10 year old Dell Latitude CPx that has no ethernet or modem ports, and the only way to connect to the internet is the Dynex Wireless G DX-BNBC PCMCIA card. It came with Windows 98, and I put Xubuntu on it for a while. I believe it was Xubuntu 8 or 9. Back then I had no clue what to do whatsoever, so after a couple weeks removed it and put Windows 2000 on it. It worked, I used it for a while, but it was slow and 2000 took up a lot of space on the 12gb hard drive after all the updates. I left it forgotten and gathering dust for the past year.
Then a few days ago I discovered Lubuntu 10.10, and from what I've seen so far it is definitely a lot more compact and faster than 2000. However, the wireless card still won't work. It's somewhat recognized, because whenever I unplug it and plug it in a bubble pops up saying "you've been disconnected from the network"... which is odd, since it never says I'm connected, and says that the firmware is missing for this card. Anyway, I discovered something this time. By running "lspci -nn | grep -i 14e4":
I'm a Debian testing user (not an experienced one) on laptop Dell Latitude D531 and has encountered a problem: I've often got my laptop slowed down very much and the message appears in a console: Disabling IRQ #19 I've searched for the solution, but failed finding the answer.

I've installed Debian on a Dell Latitude C600 and I've managed to get all of the hardware functioning except the WiFi adapter. The laptop is using a Netgear WG511v2 PCMCIA interface. I've extracted the WG511v2.INF and WG511v2XP.SYS files and I believe they are successfully installed using NDISWRAPPER.
The WiFi adapter's green LED flickers and the yellow LED periodically flashes, which would seem to indicate that the adapter is attempting to connect to a network.
I believe the problem that I'm having is related to configuring the wlan0 interface with the proper security credentials to attach to the WiFi network. I'm using WPA2 with AES for encrypting. The key is 64 hexadecimal characters.
how to configure the wlan0 interface with the proper security credentials. The Network Manager applet only offers WPA2 Personal as a configuration option.
I just installed Debian jessie on my Dell Latitude E6410 using the UEFI install. No everything went well during the install, but after the install the first boot i ran into an issue that the laptop will not boot.
When I go in to the boot menu of the Dell Latitude E6410, I see that debian has created a uefi name (Debian)
When I select this, it boots without any issues. After again a reboot again, no luck still a black screen during the boot.
Seems that the only option to get my laptop booting is by pressing F12 and select Debian in the UEFI boot of the laptop.
Is there any way i can get my laptop to boot Debian directly from UEFI, without having to press F12?? (Also disabled all legacy devices to start up but no luck)...
- Debian Jessie X64 (Using 32/64 network install, via USB) - Dell Latitude E6410 i5 (1280x800 intel graphics) latest bios A16 - SSD drive (Samsung 470 series) - Debian is the only OS installed
My Dell Latitude D820 had lenny installed and working fine. I did not have anything exotic installed (other than perhaps nividia drivers). I went about upgrading to squeeze following the notes/documentation on the debian web site. During this process it mentioned that the following firmware was not going to be installed (as it is not freeware; BTW I had non-free in my sources.list):
On reboot it was clear that the new kernel was not in a healthy state. Even when booting with older kernels I had serious stability issues. After about half a dozen reboots trying to resolve problems I was experiencing the laptop would not even load the Dell splash screen on power up. I could not even navigate into the BIOS. Nothing appeared on the monitor (or external monitor).
I put an ISO disk in the DVD drive to see if it would boot from the DVD; it seems to load but absolutely nothing appeared on the screen. I tried navigating the grub menu (not displayed) and load my windows partition. When it booted to the point where windows would normally display the GUI it flashed several times and displayed a 'BSOD' with the following message:
*** Hardware Malfunction. Call your hardware vendor for support NMI: Parity Check / Memory Parity Error *** The system has halted ***
It looks like my laptop is now FUBAR. It is out of warranty so any fix is likely to be DIY. Any ideas on how to resolve this?
Have done the following troubleshooting suggestions from around the www:
LAN controller is enabled in BIOS dmesg | grep eth0 returns nothing lspci -v | grep -i net shows wifi adapter but no ethernet adapter ifconfig -a does not show eth0 ifconfig eth0 up confirms ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device Have done lsmod, but not sure what I should be looking for.
I would post lspci, dmesg or any other output, but as the adapter is not being detected, I have no network/internet connection from that laptop, have only one other Windows based (at this stage) laptop that I am using to write this message, and so would have to type out the output manually.Adapter indicators are both on when laptop is powered up. Am unsure if the ethernet adapter has somehow gone to sleep, and if so, unsure how to wake it.Perhaps the ethernet adapter is defective, but am hoping to confirm this before looking for a workaround/replacement.
I just received a laptop hp Elitebook 8560p, i installed fedora 14 on it. Archi : Linux 188.8.131.52-92.fc14.x86_64. So I installed without probleme the ethernet driver e1000e, but the wifi become a problem ! The wifi card is an intel centrino advanced-n 6205 agn. So I google it like other people and i found this :
http://intellinuxwireless.org/?n=downloads I downloaded the iwlwifi-6000g2a-ucode-184.108.40.206.tgz and i copied the ucode in /lib/firmware and reload the iwagn with rmmod iwagn and modprobe iwagn as the link say.
It doesn't work, i tried with compat-wireless too, not succeed.I have any problem message in dmesg.
I had a problem with my laptop which is dell studio 1569 wireless card is as shown above intel centrino advanced n-6200. I had ubuntu before and it worked very well but with centos and oracle enterprise linux (not unbreakable) it does not work at all? And also the graphics card not fully configured I knew that when I tried an opengl apps?
Alright this is my first post on here and I hope I got sufficient Information for you available. I ran Ubuntu based Distros before but this is the first time under a Debian based Distro for me. I got a newlaptop and this one does not seem to let me get my wireless to work after multiple efforts
My problem: My Intel Centrino N-6300 () does not seem to find any network connections.
My previous attempts: (Some of which required me to reinstall Suse)
1. I installed new kernels as my first assumption was that the kernel was not supporting it. I know now that it is supported.
2. I installed drivers from http://intellinuxwireless.org/ which was pointless.
3. I installed backports (THat was still under Linux Mint. Same problem there.)
4. I tried NDiswrapper without success.
5. I checked rfkill as you can see further down below.
Alright here are some of my info's I have collected so far. Let me know if anything is missing.
RFkill: 0: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
Code: 03:00.0 Network controller : Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 [8086:0083] On Fedora 15, when I boot kernel 2.6.40, my laptop is unable to connect to my wireless-G AP. dmesg shows the following: Code: [ 43.866090] wlan0: direct probe to 00:27:19:14:c2:ca (try 1/3)
It works fine, however, when I boot using kernel 2.6.38 (from which I am posting) and in Windows. Also, I found some emails from the linux-wireless mailing list which appear to be talking about the same problem.
The system is fully updated. I've tried the 11n_disable=1 hint I came across on the ThinkPad wiki, but it didn't help. (I'm on an Asus K42Ja, in case it's relevant)
Although I'm fine with staying at 2.6.38 for now, are there workarounds/fixes for this?
