Debian Installation :: WiFi Card Not Being Detected In Live CD

May 15, 2015

I'm was trying to choose between GNOME and KDE for version 8. However both the live DVD's fail to pick up the Wifi card on my system. I am also unable to use certain basic commands such as ifconfig on the live CD. I am completely new to Linux and Debian (of course). Pardon me for the hand holding. This will be my first install of a Linux system.

What steps I can take to ensure that the Wifi card and the network card will be supported - hardware compatibility test maybe? Is there a way to try before installing? This will be a dualboot with Windows 8.1

Wifi card: Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter
LAN card: Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

Fedora Networking :: WiFi Card Not Detected In New Installation Of 14?

Dec 17, 2010

I have just installed Fedora 14 on my desktop machine and have just discovered that it can't detect my WiFi card. The card is an Edimax EW-7711In which the makers say will run with Linux. I know that the card works fine with Ubuntu because my brother uses the same card in his Ubuntu machine but he is away until after Christmas so I don't know what he did to make it work other than I know he used ndiswrapper and the Windows drivers that were supplied with the card. I have looked for ndiswrapper in the Fedora repositories but it doesn't appear to be there.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid Wifi Card Not Detected

May 1, 2010

I'm having a problem with my wifi card: it is not detected by the network manager. I have tried going to the Hardware Drivers utility, but it doesn't find any proprietary hardware.I really am at a loss as to how to make Lucid "start over" with the wifi detection.I have installed Lucid using an existing /home, which was under 8.10. Maybe i just need to wipe out some configuration files to start afresh?

Debian Installation :: No Ethernet Card Detected

Jul 28, 2015

I am installing Linux for the first time right now and I am facing a bit of an issue when it comes to network hardware driver installation. The NIC on my motherboard is a Marvel 88E1111 (computer is very old). During the installation of Debian, I got to a menu which read "No Ethernet card detected. If you know the name of the driver needed by your Ethernet card you can select it from the list", then provides me with said list of driver names.

However, the only driver I could find that came close the NIC I am using was one called just "Marvel", and selecting actually didn't do anything (screen flashes blue and returns me to the same menu). So I continued by selecting the "none of the above" option, and now the new menu reads: "A driver for your hardware is not available. You may need to load drivers from removable media (...)". So I thought I should google for the drivers and see what I can find. The official site of the company that made my NIC doesn't even list my model in their drivers' list (to be expected since it is so old).

Then I found this: URL.., but I was expecting more of a download than the source code itself.

Debian Hardware :: SD Card Not Detected Unless Inserted At Boot Time

Sep 18, 2013

My desktop is a Dell XPS 630i. It has a SD card reader on the front panel.

It used to work until about a few months ago (I guess, I don't use it that often). Now, the SD card is undetected when inserted.

If inserted before boot, then the existing partitions are available in thunar. I can remove and insert back the card in the reader without it being detected. I can mount and unmount the partitions. But if I "eject" the partition, then the card is not detected anymore even if pulled out and pushed in again.

Not much in dmesg (the drive is /dev/sde, and there are two partitions in the card, it is a raspian OS) :

Code: Select all[  542.144424] sd 6:0:0:3: [sde] No Caching mode page present
[  542.144430] sd 6:0:0:3: [sde] Assuming drive cache: write through
[  542.159299] sd 6:0:0:3: [sde] No Caching mode page present
[  542.159303] sd 6:0:0:3: [sde] Assuming drive cache: write through
[  542.161556]  sde: sde1 sde2

[Code] ....

When I click "eject" or manually remove the card, it says "capacity change from 2013265920 to 0".

I'm using Jessie, with the latest 3.11 kernel from experimental, but the issue was there with 3.10 and most probably older kernels. I tried to go back in time using older kernels (down to 2.6, I think the reader worked at that time) without succes, which may indicate it does not depend only on the kernel.

I don't have any "power saving" setting in the BIOS I could disable. And I didn't modify the BIOS, even the BIOS settings, in the last months.

I'm pretty sure it is a software issue as it worked with a knoppix 7-something.

Code: Select allecho 1 > /sys/bus/pci/rescan

command I've read about does not seem to work. It is supposed to force the detection but nothing in dmesg and no volume available in thunar.

I found a workaround yesterday. If I launch gparted (needs admin privileges), the SD card is detected. Like if it forced the detection. Sometimes, I have to specify the path explicitely to get it to appear :

Code: Select allgparted /dev/sde

Besides, I'd like to have this bug fixed, but I don't know against which package I could file a bug. Could it be some misconfiguration on my side ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Video Card Not Detected?

Feb 6, 2010

Working on a friend's PC, which was previously running XP and got a very nasty virus infection. I convinced him to try Ubuntu, showed him the interface running on my own machine and he was hooked. Backed up all his data to network, completely erased the hard disk and install Ubuntu. Sounds easy, right?

Installed 9.10, it didn't detect the video card and xorg.conf was missing from /etc/X11. After some messing around trying to get it to work, I realised that the sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg command wasn't working properly and didn't produce the menu shown in the screenshots. After some digging I found that this was a bug in 9.10, so to make the job easier, I wiped the drive again and started again on 9.04.

With 9.04, at least the xorg.conf file was there, but had no entries under configured video device. I tried adding "vesa", "via", "openchrome" (all on separate attempts), all to no avail. I retried the dpkg -reconfigure command above. still no menu.

Now several days into this "easy" install, I rolled back to the LTS release (8.04 - hardy) and installed that instead. Still no video card detection, and resolution is obstinately stuck at 800x600. Tried the same string of tests again, and now admitting defeat The relevant output from lspci is: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8378 [S3 UniChrome] Integrated Video (rev 01)

The output from xrandr is:
Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 800 x 600, maximum 800 x 600
default connected 800x600+0+0 0mm x 0mm

Debian :: WiFi Card Isn't Identified By OS

May 28, 2015

I booted Debian in Live mode on a USB to try to see if the internet will work on my Linux machine before I actually install it (there is some tricky internet software where I live that I must overcome, but that will come in another thread).

Currently I have no WiFi whatsoever. When I go into the internet access menu I only get back the fact that there is a wired connection that's possible (theoretically, I should be able to also see networks to which I can connect to, but I don't). Also, it's impossible for me to actually get a wired connection going, unless I can somehow give it through my Windows laptop.

When I did some research, the people seem to say that I need to update the driver after enabling the use of non-free software; I can't do that since I have no connection in the first place.

The OS recognizes that the PCE exists (I am using asus pce-ac68), when I did "lspci" command it told me I have BCM4360 and BCM43225 chips.

I think I found the drivers here "[URL] ......" but I don't think my chip is listed there (there is no BCM4360 or BCM43225 on that list). What to do with those drivers, I mean how to compile them and install them on a Debian machine, and I'm not sure I can even install them on a live boot (but I want to make sure my internet works on the live boot before I actually install the OS).

Debian Hardware :: WiFi Card Not Working

Dec 6, 2014

I have some problems with my WiFi card I'm configuring for Debian Wheezy. I've used it in other computers successfully (It's a USB device), but this box doesn't seem to be able to recognize it or use it properly.

I've identified the card using Code: Select alllsusb with the output Code: Select allBus 001 Device 002: ID 7392:7811 Edimax Technology Co., Ltd EW-7811Un 802.11n Wireless Adapter [Realtek RTL8188CUS]

I've used the Wheezy docs to download the firmware necessary and it apparently is supposed to run fine with this firmware, but nothing is working. There was mention to a GitHub repository of a fixed version of the driver in question, which didn't work either.

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Edit And Sound Card Not Detected

Aug 6, 2010

I'm a Linux noob, so please go easy on me! I've been desperate to get rid of my Windows install for a while now and have finally started to make the move over, but have a problem with my Ubuntu 10.04 install. I've scoured the help documentation and forum for days now without managing to resolve my problem, and have finally resorted to posting my problem. So I'm sorry if this has been covered elsewhere.

1 Installed Ubuntu on my laptop (Viglen Furtura S200) but the only way I have been able to get it to install and boot properly is edit the GRUB with the following acpi=off i915.modeset xforcevesa. I had to add these parameters even to boot the live CD as well. I think I'm right in assuming that this is forcing the use of a generic graphics driver, consequently leaving some visual features unavailable. I'm not really sure what turning acpi off is doing. Is it possible to resolve this? Is this the cause of problem number 2?

2 After install there is no sound. Sound preferences shows no hardware and ALSAmixer is empty when opened. I have followed the sound troubleshooting through and it looks like my sound card is actually being picked up on the board, but I fall at the point of checking the loaded ALSA Modules as my report shows that none are loaded?!

Debian Hardware :: WiFi Card Not Recognized (Laptop HP 430 G2)

Sep 12, 2014

I'm a brand new user of Debian, and I just bought a (too much?) new laptop, the HP 430 G2. It seems to work great for almost everything, except that I don't have any wifi available.

I tried so many different things (without any success) that it would be hard to resume. But for now, all I have is a new installation (to avoid parasite installations of weird things), and a kernel updated to 3.16. I don't know if it's useful though...

Some information from my system :

Code: Select allbonyhoax@bonybook:~$ sudo ifconfig
[sudo] password for bonyhoax:
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 14:58:d0:09:72:bd 
          inet adr:  Bcast:  Masque:
          adr inet6: fe80::1658:d0ff:fe09:72bd/64 Scope:Lien
          RX packets:27329 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:3491 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

[Code] .... 

The first element I notice is that I don't have the line with "Kernel driver in use...". Which seems to indicate that there's a problem with the kernel module (is that right?). But I don't know how to fix it...

The other thing that puzzles me with these last two commands is that according to this page, my wifi card is a Broadcom BCM43142. But it's not the result I get with the lspci command.

Anyway, I'm really lost, I don't know what to do, what to check, what to install. I don't want to go by random, testing all the different solutions I see on the web blindely. This is the reason why I ask it here.

Debian Hardware :: Lag On Every 5 Min Or So With Intel 7265 WiFi Card

Sep 13, 2015

I have an intel 7265 AC wireless card. When I try to download something my estimated download time is tripled almost every 5 mins.And when I play an online game from steam (cs:go or dota2) the ping goes to 250-300 ms which generally stays around 80ms. I'm using debian jessie. So far, I've tried turning of the power save mode of the card, changing ISP and router but none of them worked. I have a fairly good internet connection (I'm using it with my other machines without a problem) so I don't think the connection or router is the problem. Below you can find some information about system.

Code: Select all$ lspci | grep Network
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 7265 (rev 59)

Code: Select all$ dmesg | grep iwlwifi

Debian Hardware :: Get Engenius Eub-9801 USB WIFI Card Going?

Feb 24, 2011

I am trying to get an engenius EUB 9801 going in Debian 6.0 Stable. I have searched this forum, and other linux forums but no luck. It is based on a Ralink rt3572sta chip, the 2.4/5ghz 300mbps wireless N chipset. I will post the link to the Ubuntu forum, where they have been able to get it working under 10.10.[URL]..the link to the linux chipset driver is:[URL]...

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 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

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 (

Debian Hardware :: Distro With Sound Blaster Live - STUCK On X-Fi Card

Oct 22, 2010

I've NEVER had a single problem in any distro with my Sound Blaster Live (Yeah; it's old school but works). However, my brand new install of Debian Squeeze (minimal with LXDE) is giving me crap. Alsa is up and running and some reason it doesn't want to use my SBLive... It's STUCK on my X-Fi card. Before you say take the XFi out; it's my Win 7 card.. I need to have it and don't want to have to pull it all the time...

Is there any other file like alsaconf? I don't know where to start. Maybe someone can shed some light of where I should go to attack this problem. I've never had an issue in ubuntu, fedora, freeBSD never gave me trouble. I usually simply use alsamixer to switch and never have an issue.

Ubuntu Networking :: Intel 5100 WiFi Card - Dell Latitude E6400 - Suddenly WiFi LED On The Computer Stops Blinking

May 4, 2011

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

Ubuntu Installation :: Create A Live Disc On The SD Card With Persistence Options?

Jun 18, 2010

I have an Eee PC with a dead Hdd. I brought it back to life by installing Ubuntu 10.10 on a 16GB SD card. It works 100% but is sluggish.Now I am wondering, from the standpoint of reducing SD card access and writes, would it have been better to create a Live Disc on the SD card with persistence options? What I am thinking is that a Live Disc is designed to run out of RAM, and would thus reduce the activity on the SD card. The only thing this netbook will get used for is the internet. It is a netbook, so the performance is limited, but as far as netbooks go, it is top of the line with dual core and discrete nvidia graphics.
