Debian Installation :: Integrate Wireless Adapter Drivers To Install Media?
May 13, 2010
I downloaded from the following link: [url]... etinst.iso and i have a working flash drive Debian installer. I would like to be able to integrate driver support for my wireless adapter or my gprs phone for internet access during install so that I wont have to be connected via ethernet.
I'm booting from disc on a compaq presario F700. Somehow, I messed everything up and now it's not reading that I have an OS. Which was previously vista. Now, when I boot from disc and try to install no partitions come up. I did open the blasted thing to clean it not too long but as far as I know, nothing dislodged. It is a laptop, btw. So, my kneejerk reaction is that the hard-drive got damaged or knocked loose. I also tried using kill-drive to erase it so I could start fresh, also no Hard drive detected. So, I'm going to try that. In the meantime I have another issue. When booting from disc I can't seem to get the drivers for my wireless adapter to install. I have them. Madwifi for AR5001X but I don't know where to put them via terminal.
I really want to drop Windows, but wireless connectivity and frequent crashes are really discouraging me. I have a dual-boot W XP with Ubuntu 10.10. I do not have the computer on, so I'm writing this from my weak memory USB Adapter - Netgear WNDA3100-100NAS = v2 The adapter works under W XP with no problems The router, Linksys WRT54G sees the adapter in the dhcp table lsusb lists the adapter.
I have copied the drivers from the install CD onto the desktop. I cannot figure out how to install or access those drivers for the installation. I tried to install the ndiswrapper from the software center, but the center shows it's available from the "main" source. I've looked in the package manager, but can't find it. When I go into terminal, and enter one of the suggested commands in the forums, it can't be located. I have a Belkin F5D8010 installed on this computer, and it works great under W XP. I want to try to get this installed, but until I can figure out installation of the ndiswrapper and how to access it, and get the drivers recognized, I'm at a standstill.
I am new to Linux and actually just finished my install about 30 minutes ago. Ubuntu 10.04 isn't recognizing my wireless adapter, so I need to install the drivers. I know where the drivers are, I just don't know how to install them on a Linux system.
Here is the driver page. I don't know how to download the .inf file (necessary?) but I have ndiswrapper, bcmwl5.sys, and sp33008.exe all in the downloads folder.
Apparently just double clicking the files does nothing, so what do I do now?
I recently reformatted and dual partitioned to both Windows 7 as well as ubuntu 10.10. Loading works fine and Windows 7 is 100% operational. I cannot seem to get my wireless network adapter to be read by Ubuntus 'Windows Wireless Drivers' gui. Here are the steps that I have done THUS far, to make sure that we are all on the right path. Before I go any further, my wireless network adapter is an old school WUSB11 Linksys Wireless Network Adapter (running version 2.6).
1) Downloaded and installed "ndiswrapper" from ubuntu's main website. I downloaded the common, utils and ndisgtk files and installed them accordingly. 2) I extracted these three files to the desktop of Ubuntu and accessed the terminal page. 3) From terminal I typed "cd Desktop" to change the directory to the desktop. 4) Next, I typed in "Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-common_1.54-2ubuntu1_all.deb Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.54-2ubuntu1_i386.deb Sudo dpkg -i ndisgtk_0.8.5-1_i386.deb" 5) This installed Windows Wireless Drivers gui successfully and I can access it. 6) I have downloaded the driver files for the adapter from the cisco website and searched them for the required files needed. 7) After extracting the .INF file from the "Drivers" directory named "NETUSB.SYS" (I wasn't sure if the other associated files within the same folder needed to be present together with NETUSB so I moved everything to the desktop) I typed in "sudo ndiswrapper -i NETUSB.inf". After accessing the Windows Wireless Drivers gui I have noticed that the 'netusb' driver is present yet under it, the system states "Hardware present: No". This leads me to believe that maybe I installed incorrectly or my "fireware?" is not present? I was reading through the installation guide posted on the ubuntu website that in addition to the .INF file we also need the BIN file(s)? and SYS file(s)?.. The folder with the drivers for my adapter contains a BIN file but it is not within the "Drivers" section of the folder. 9) Upon mousing over the network Icon naturally my hardware is still not present. 10) From what I gather after the system finds the hardware I am to write into the terminal
I have recently installed Linux Mint 10 on my laptop. When I look at the Device Manager in Windows 7, it says I have an Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. Right now, I am unable to connect to wifi with Linux. What drivers am I able to install, and how would I install them?
I have a Belkin Enhanced Wireless USB Network Adapter Model # F6D4050 v2. The drivers are for windows but the windows wireless drivers app doesnt work. I see a tutorial for a linksys that appears to have the same chipset, but I am not sure if any of the steps need to be modified, also my kernel is a bit different. Here is my kernel:
I am a complete novice when it comes to Linux. I have just installed Debian 5 and i would like to get the wireless adapter working. I have a Ralink RT2070 54Mbs Wireless USB Adapter and the driver disk. What are the steps/commands i must follow to install the driver please?
i have just installed Fedora 10 and now my wireless adapter doesn't work and i think it's because i need to install drivers for it.. I have been using Ubuntu for the last few weeks and it worked fine in ubuntu probably because ubuntu comes with drivers for my adapter already installed.. Now, i'm kind of newbie so i don't know where to look and what to do.I did lspci and here is my adapter.. Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)
I can't seem to find drivers for my wireless adapter, TL-WN722NC, so that it can work on Linux (Ubuntu). I have already emailed the company, TP-Link, and they said that it does not support Linux yet.Is there a way that I might be able to get drivers for it somewhere else?
DELL Inspiron 15 3543 (3000 Series)5th Generation Intel Core i5-5200U Processor (3M Cache, up to 2.70 GHz).I have installed Debian 8 and received following message relating missing firmware files rtl_nic/rtl8106e-1.fw (EDIT: I understand this is not wireless adapter, but wired adapter which appears to be working ok as I can connect to internet ok.)The wireless adapter wasn't recognised so I used LAN cable and completed the install.this is details of wireless adapter....
I have a old mac G4 and I just recently installed ubuntu 10.10 on it. It doesn't recognize my wireless adapter at all so I get no wireless on the computer. I've never used any linux distribution in my life so I don't have any idea how to install drivers for it.
I have just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on an old machine to get a feel for it. No problems with the install, but I don't have a LAN connection lead spare so I'm trying to install my Belkin Wireless G USB Adapter (K75-F5D7050B which requires version 3 according to the Belkin site).
Unfortunately I can't find any Ubuntu software & driver versions on their site and I only have a windows installation disc.
Just made the jump to Ubuntu, and until this install I considered myself very tech savvy. Now not so much! Built my new desktop, loaded Ubuntu 64 bit no problem. But I'm having a terrible time figuring out how to load the native driver for my realtek wireless adapter. I successfully un-tarred the file, and used the terminal to run the make command by using cd command to navigate to the file. It returned a wall of text, and in my mind looked to work. Next I go to run "./clean" in the same file location in the terminal and it returns:
"ERROR: Module r8192s_usb does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_rsl does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_ccmp does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_tkip does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_wep does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt does not exist in /proc/modules
Not completely sure if this is an issue, I try moving to the next step of instructions issuing the command "insmod 8712u.ko" in the terminal same file location and get the error message insmod: error inserting '8712u.ko': -1 Operation not permitted I've tried running "sudo insmod 8712u.ko" from both that file directory, and from my home file directory. My guess is I'm missing a step or need to be typing these commands in a different file directory in the terminal.
I looking for a new disto been using ubuntu. my friend recommended Debian, I just installed it and made it unusable very quickly by trying to use repositories for ubuntu. I'd like to know if there is an easy way to make my wireless work like in ubuntu it just does, (i don't even need to attach a cat 5 cable after install), and I'm happy in my blissful ignorance. Also an easy way to install nvidia drivers?
I need Broadcom and nivida 173 drivers. I looked through the Debian forums while I had a working system but found nothing easily and iceweavel was so slow, unless there was something wrong with my wired connection. Is there an easy way to install no free drivers?
I have installed Fedora 8 on my laptop. My laptop has a " Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM94311MCG wlan mini-PCI " wireless Card. I want to get the wireless working. I did an 'lsmod' and I found that the modules for this card is not installed. I tried to start Network Manager, but network manager cannot connect to wireless but it cant. How and where can I get the drivers for this and how do I install those modules. My laptop is a Dell vostro 1400.
I've installed Lenny a few times before, but something is going wrong here this time. I couldn't remember the exact method I used to put an image on a disc, but I tried over 10 ways, and every time, after starting up, it says something along the lines of please select different boot device or insert bootable disc and press a key. There's a bunch of options to make these images in Windows apps, but I did one solid way that should have worked i believe.
This was to zcat boot.img.gz > /dev/sdx and so on, then copy the mini.iso to the usb drive (instead of previously making cds). I thought maybe my cd drive wasnt working, but the usb drive, when selected as primary boot drive had same issue. I didnt see any errors in its creation on the usb drive either. Running AMD64, have three hard drives plugged in, thought maybe the newest drive had an issue, so I tried different combinations of unplugging power and data cords of each and once all hrd drives. Using this computer right now, actually, XP is running. A command prompt version of squeeze is installed, its having some difficulties, thats why i would like a new install.
However I am having some issues with drivers. I need to install a Patriot Wireless N USB wireless adapter in Crunchbang but when I follow the directions for installing the drivers and am using the command "make" I get an error that says '*** /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/build: No such file or directory. Stop . *** [modules] Error 2"
I'm trying to install a Linksys WUSB600n dual-band USB wireless-N adapter onto a desktop system with opensuse 11.1 installed; this system will be migrating to a back porch with no cabling access, hence the wireless solution. Everything works fine under Windows XP, but on Linux, not so much. Hardware info is as follows; there is no "Wireless LAN" entry, but there is a USB entry:
tonight my laptop with debian installed is no longer reading my wireless card. It has been working for quite some time and I really have no clue as to why it stopped. I did install some updates today, but they seemed pretty minimal. I got the card to work following the same thing I did to get it to work in ubuntu which can be found URL...So what can I do to figure out why it stopped recognizing it or to fix it?
I currently know next to nothing about networks in Linux (yes I am working on that). I have just brought a Asus n13 wireless adapter after failing to get my laptop wireless working. I am using the 2.6.32-5 Debian squeeze kernel. The device connected once after I did the following:
apt-get update modprobe rt2870sta iwconfig ifconfig wlan0 up
The device connected to wifi and was working fine. I then shutdown and rebooted to see if it would automatically connect on start up and now, although nothing seems to have changed and even after I repeated the steps above it did not connect. The network manager applet as well as listing the asus adapter(as ralink 802.11 WLAN) lists a Texas instruments PCI1410 pc card cardbus controller which i didn't before.
