Debian Multimedia :: Not All Wireless Networks Detected
Mar 13, 2015
I am running debian testing dist-upgraded to sid with the latest gnome-shell. All is fine, I have recently moved to a new house and noticed that network manager wont detect my home wireless network. It does scan for networks and locates SSIDS from other local networks including my neighbours wifi where I can connect but will not detect mine. The modem router used is a zte quite popular in Greece and I have the broadcom wl driver installed. By the way since it is a dual boot machine - nasty win7 connect just fine and so does my mobile phone...
I have been having trouble getting my network card to access networks. I currently am using a wired connection. A while ago when I first installed Linux on this same computer, I got it working by installing the driver. But since I reinstalled Linux, I tried the process again with no success. Can anyone give me explicit instructions on installing the network card driver so I can use it on Linux.
I'm dual-booting Ubuntu 9.10 (upgraded from 9.04) and Windows 7 on my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop.Ubuntu doesn't recognize any wireless network (both in 9.04 and 9.10); my Windows OS works perfectly well with wireless, as does my wired Internet connection with Ubuntu and Windows.I've had this problem on previous installations of Ubuntu (I've removed and re-installed it several times) but I can't locate the solution anywhere. I've tried numerous fixes that I've found online, but none of them have worked.System>Administration>Hardware Drivers tells me that the Broadcom STA Wireless driver is activated and currently in use
I've tried every fix i could find. I'm on a Dell Inspiron 1420 running Ubuntu 10.10 lucid lynx using a BCM4312 LP-PHYi've tried everything to get my wireless networks to connect but nothing works. I finally got my computer to recognize my wireless card but it doesn't detect or connect to networks. Before i was able to at least see the networks but not connect or stay connected once i disconnected the ethernet cable. i will post the output of ifconfig, iwconfig, iwlist scan
I have a msi netbook with ubuntu netbook remix installed and it was working great until yesterday when suddenly it stopped detecting my home network. There are no problems on my two other machines, so I'm sure the problem is the netbook. I have no idea how to go about troubleshooting this. I was hoping someone could help me by giving me a place to start.
I have ubuntu 11.04 installed. I have a D-link USB Wireless Adapter. Ubuntu detected it and it worked fine. I have a Beetel 450TC1 Router which broadcasts my internet connection. Ubuntu recognizes it, and keeps on trying to connect.It asks me for Authentication again and again.( Don't tell me to check the password again, it does work on everything else )And its not the router problem also, as I tried broadcasting through a laptop I have, Ubuntu again detected but couldn't connect and kept asking me for Authentication
New Ubuntu user here, and I'm having difficulties connecting to my router at home. I've searched around the forum for a couple of hours now, to no avail. My router was originally not broadcasting ssid, so I turned broadcasting on. Now I can see the router, but when I enter a password (which I know is correct) nothing gets connected.
I am running -current on an ASUS eeePC 1000HE. Wireless was working fine up until the time I applied the latest changes from the Slack -current tree, which upgraded wpa_supplicant. Now, no networks are detected.
I looked at some related threads here and did some basic checking: neither the eth1 nor wlan0 interfaces show up in iwconfig or ifconfig output. Am afraid I am still a wireless dunderhead and don't know where to start troubleshooting this issue.
I'm running ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop.Wireless networks appear on the dropdown menu but when I try to connect to my home network the authentication box appears, after typing my password the box disappears and it continues to connect but nothing happens and after a while the authentication box appears again. So.. no internetz connected.
I have configured a wireless pcmcia card using ndiswrapper. I'm sure that works, as with the command "iwlist wlan0 scan" gives me back the list of detected wireless networks. At this point I was wondering: is there a way to detect the new interface (wlan0) with network manager? Even after enabling the wifi card the network manager gnome applet always finds only eth0.
I have a fresh install of Debian 5.04 Stable. It detects my wireless card with a RT61 chipset and gives me the option to select a wireless network through the network-manager icon in the upper panel, yet no wireless networks are displayed. So, how do I fix this and get the ability to connect to my network? I have tried connecting manually but it refuses to connect. No errors, it just does nothing and reverts to roaming mode.
I believe the exact model of my card is an Edimax EW 7128G.
I just installed Lenny and I was getting settled in. The wireless didn't work, but I have this USB adapter and was going to use it as a stop-gap measure until I get the real wireless going, especially since I could use that connection for downloading, forum search, etc.However, the USB adapter isn't working either. It seems to detect the adapter itself, since the "appendage" that appears on the right-click menu appears, but there's no detected networks. I have Jaunty dual booting with Lenny, and I know both the network and the USB adapter are working, since I'm on the Ubuntu side using both right now
I am a (somewhat) newbie to Linux (but have an extensive Windows background), and I have just installed Debian Squeeze in an old EeePc 701 4G using the netinst version only with the following packages:
Now I would like to install Debian in my main laptop, but I think it won't be able to connect to any wireless networks during setup and before installing firmware-brcm80211 and wireless-tools (its wireless card is a Broadcom 43224AG). That being, and to avoid connecting the computer directly to the router (it is not easy), I would like to bridge the EeePc's wireless connection to my laptop using a cable. I tried using the instructions found at the Debian Wiki, but I couldn't set it up properly.
I decided to try wireless so I bought a TP-Link pci adapter TL-WN851N and installed it. I installed Wcid and firmware-atheros. I set /etc/network/interfaces to read auto lo iface lo inet loopbackAll Wicd does is tell me "No wireless networks found."
I recently installed Lenny but have not been successful using the wireless. have previously used Ubuntu 8.04 where the wireless worked without problems (network-manager).I have also tried to install wicd but that too does not list any available networks. I have presently reinstalled network-manager
I installed Debian sid recently. I installed the B43 driver and wireless is working just fine at home and elsewhere. I can't connect to the wireless networks at school though. There are two networks, one is unsecured (and you have to enter your login details after connecting - I can't connect at all though), the other is secured. I was previously using Ubuntu, with network manager, and I have all my settings the same for the secured network as I did in Ubuntu. In Ubuntu I can connect to both networks just fine. In Debian I can't.
I installed wheezy on my Acer Aspire One netbook and am unable to connect to wireless networks.Output of lspci shows this as my wireless card:
02:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01) I installed the firmware-atheros package to get the card up and running. Output of iwconfig shows I have a working interface:Quote:
root@netbook:/home/eric/Desktop# iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSIDff/any
I use network-manager-gnome to connect to my wireless networks, but I can only use it with a graphical environment, and it doesn't even work that well since it will drop the connection after a few minutes and I have to reconnect it manually, that means I cannot leave my computer downloading a big file all night since it will only download for a few minutes, does anyone know what package can I use to connect to my wireless without the need of network-manager, even if it's through command line?
I installed ubuntu and i installed it using the install as a program inside windows options but when I boot into ubuntu it does not detect any networks I tried the command sudo pppoeconf it says ethernet card is not there and then it asked me to try modconf and when i try modconf it says that modconf is not installed How can i set internet connection in ubuntu 10.04 I get address assigned by DHCP
I just did a fresh install of debian (amd64) on my laptop (Dell Inspiron 1520). My wireless network is not being detected, but I'm pretty sure that my wireless device IS being detected. During the installation, I got a message about some firmware .ucode file not being found. It asked me to put the file on a usb stick (which I got online), and I did that. It didn't complain after that, but I got the same message again later on, but again it didn't complain when I continued the installation.
I have been Linux user(Ubuntu)for about 3 years since my switching from Windows. Although I did not have any complain against it, I wanted to try Debian Lenny. I have already partitioned my disk and installed Debian. Everything worked fine according to my expectations except for one thing: wireless.I tried different things to get it works without result. The light indicator of my computer seems to be working but the Network Manager does not detect any signal. In Ubuntu the wireless is detected automatically even using the Live CD.
i just installed debian after about 2 weeks of using ubuntu afterriend suggested switching, and it's not detecting my wireless card in the network settings. i'm new at linux so try to keep it simple if you can please,i read the sticky about this and here's the info it said i should provide
ispci -knn Code: 00:00.0 Host bridge : Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub [8086:2a40] (rev 07) Kernel driver in use: agpgart-intel
I could use Wireless network. I could see several different networks in my range. Then suddenly the network stoppedworking, and I can no longer see any networks under "Wireless networks".The Wired networks works fine.I tried upgrading ubuntu, but nothing changed. Just to confirm, I rebooted the computer in Windows Vista (Dual boot) andconfirmed that Wireless worked fine there. No hardware problem then.The suggestions I have found on this and other forums suggest looking at the output from iwconfig and ifconfig. But since I'm a n00b at Ubuntu I don't know what to make of it.
This is the output: emil@emils:~$ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions.
