Fedora Hardware :: F13 WIFI Intel 5300 Crash With Kernel?
May 30, 2010
I just install F13 yesterday, before that I use F12 and it works well with no problem. The biggest and only problem I have with F13 is wifi network. If I turn on wifi switch before OS start, WIFI LED lights and wireless works. Then I try to turn off switch and turn on again, but the LED doesnt light any more, so wireless is also silent. The bad thing is there are many notifications of kernel crash.
Since I originally started using Ubuntu (10.04) I have had problems with my wireless card. Now I have updated to 10.10 and it has stopped working entirely. I am using a "Dell Vostro 1520" with an "Intel(R) WiFi Link 5300 AGN" wireless card.Here are the details: 10.04
In this distribution version, if I had the wireless switch on my laptop activated at startup my wireless card would refuse to activate. There is a light to show when it is activated and this was off, but I checked anyway and wireless capabilities don't work when it is in this state. It didn't even resolve the problem when I switched it off and on again (although this caused the wireless indicator to blink on for less than a second when switched on).This was manageable because I found two workarounds:
1. Wait until my laptop had logged into Ubuntu, then activate the wireless card which would start and work as it should.
2. If I had already logged into Ubuntu I could put my computer on standby, switch off the card, come out of standby and reactivate the card while Ubuntu was running.As I said, this was completely manageable, and I got used to it. 10.10
Now that I have upgraded to 10.10 all workarounds fail, I can't use a wireless connection in Ubuntu, as my card won't activate, I cant even get the light to blink as I could before. The only way I can use WiFi is by switching to Windows.I tend to use Ubuntu for my university programming work.
I have an IBM ThinkPad W700 running 64 bit Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala. At the office I normally connect it to the Ethernet since it's never connected very reliably to the wifi there (drops out 2 or 3 times per day, usually at the worst possible time, of course), but it always worked just fine with Netgear WGR614v5 at home... until a week or two ago.
I used to be able to come home, take the laptop out of suspend mode, and it would connect to the wifi. Occasionally there'd be some hitch and I'd have to restart the network manager (sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager restart) but this was only sometimes, and when I did, it'd always work. But now, when I get home from work, I need to restart the entire system to get it to connect properly again. Without restarting the whole system, it either doesn't scan for wifi networks, it doesn't find any wifi networks, it keeps stuffing up my wifi password, or it connects and gets 0% signal.
Presumably, some driver was updated recently and it doesn't work so well. What's the easiest way to find out what drivers have been updated lately, and revert to a previous version? And what else can I try restarting so I don't have to restart the entire system? I've tried /etc/init.d/network-manager restart, /etc/init.d/networking restart, /etc/init.d/network-interface restart, and restart network-manager. I've also tried turning the wireless switch at the front of the laptop off and on, many times.
The info above is when I've taken my laptop out of suspend mode and it won't connect to the network. lsmod doesn't say anything about wifi nor wireless; iwlist does see my network, which my older Januty laptop is connected to without drama.
I have an intel 5300 wireless chipset which is not supported in kernel 2.6.25. I am currently using opensuse 11.0, I downgraded from 11.1 since I faced so many other problems. can I setup my wireless driver under kernel 2.6.25? if so, how could i do this?
I am using fc14 i686, and I am having a problem with my wireless card. Even though the led of the wireless card lights up the network manager claims that the wireless is disabled. I don't understand what is going wrong.I am a newbie trying to be sth better bur for the time being my only help could be the outputs of the lshw, lspci and lsusb commands.
I swapped the wireless card in my m6400 from a Dell 1510 (Broadcom) to an Intel 5300 and I am trying to get it working. Right now it's not coming up at all. This is a running install of Ubuntu, not a new install, prior to the HW swap the Broadcom worked OK. I've searched all over, but nothing seems to address the specific problem of getting this started.
The laptop is a Dell m6400 with T9800 CPU and 4GB of RAM running 10.10 (2.6.35-22-generic x86_64).
Code: wprecht@LWP-laptop:$ lspci 09:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5761e Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10) 0c:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300 ifconfig and iwconfig
I have a Dell E6500 with and Intel 5300 wireless agn card running Lucid x64. Wireless works fine and speeds are great except when I download with either the browser or thru a torrent or even updates. Once I get to around 100 megs in to the file wireless stops working and the only way to get it working again is to disconnect and reconnect to the AP. I have installed the back ports and tried several other fixed to get this to work but nothing has helped. One more note this happens on 2 other wireless routers that I have tried so I know that it's not limited to my Linksys.
Ive installed Ubuntu recently but none of my attempts to get the wifi network working were successfull. It establishes connection but the indicator shows no signal and I cant connect to any website, I tried pinging external IPs etc. None of these worked. lspci -nn | grep 'Wireless Brand'Does not show anything. I could find 03:00:0 Network Controller: Intel Corporation Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300 lsmod | grep "wlan_module_name"Doesnt show anything. Restarting network says only: *Reconfiguring network interfaces... Kernel boot messages:
The network Im trying to connect to is hidden, so I have to input SSID manually, I doubt this causes the problem.
The wireless on my 64-bit openSUSE-11.2 installed on my Dell Studio 1537 laptop stopped working some time back (possibly more than a one or two months back). I just discovered this last week when on business. I have not used the wireless under openSUSE-11.2 for a while so I am not certain what broke it, but I am suspicious of an update. I note openSUSE-11.3 milestone-7 works great with the wireless (on a liveCD). I note possibly two related threads, although I note no failed request for firmware in my case:request for firmware file 'iwlwifi-5000-2.ucode' failed [INTEL 5300 AGN] [OPENSUSE 11.2] - openSUSE Forums, and I see another thread here: Suddenly No Wireless Network Card - openSUSE Forums... but I can not tell if what I have is the same problem, so I did not add to those threads. In my case I can scan for the network, and see the SSID. An ip address is assigned. But a ping does not work.
Some details, the wireless is:
04:00.0 Network controller : Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 5300 AGN [Shiloh] Network Connection [8086:4235] Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device [8086:1121] Kernel driver in use: iwlagn In terms of installed apps:
I know the router wireless network is good, because I can connect to the router via wireless with another laptop (old Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo 7400M with older Intel wireless), and the router wireless also works with this Dell Studio 1537 PC (with same hardware) but with openSUSE-11.3 milestone7 version.
I can't get my card Intel Wireless 5300 AGN to work. I'm running Slackware 13.1 and it's a full, fresh install.I get to show up with lspci -v:Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 5300 AGN [Shiloh] Network Connection...But it will not show up with 'ifconfig' which will only list the local loopback (yes we have have a eth problem as well but one thing at a time).
I have only had a few weeks worth of experience with linux, so I'm probably considered a newbie at this but I felt like giving it a shot. I just configured my new Toshiba Satellite A505-S6969 to jaunty. Most of the transition is going well but I'm stuck with a few issues, one of which is getting my wifi to work. Right now I'm working off of an ethernet cable.spci returns

Installed ubuntu 9.10 dual boot with win7 yesterday. Everything working but Wifi. Wifi works fine with Win7. No Wifi in Ubuntu. Very confused. I have info from the wifi trouble ticket post.There does not seem to be a driver for this card anywhere.

I have some serious trouble getting the Wireless connection working, using Fedora 13 on a Dell XPS M1710 laptop which has an Intel Pro Wireless 3945 ABG adapter. I have previously tried an earlier version of Fedora I think it was version 10, where it worked flawlessly out of the box, but all versions since then, simply wont work properly. I got the Fedora 12 64 bit working at some stage, after using hours and hours trying to get it working, and suddenly it did. Don't know what suddenly made it work, since I haven't made any new changes, just re-checked the old ones. But I needed to use Skype which is only in 32 bit, so I had to reinstall to a 32 bit version, and then couldn't get it working again.
I can get it to work with any Windows version, no problems. I have also tried with PCBSD version 7.x, 8.0 and today I tried the new 8.1 just to see if that worked to, an no problemos, it works perfectly out of the box, I could set it up in 5 minutes, even though I don't have any previous knowledge of PCBSD, other than a few short trial installs.
It has to be said that I am a newbee to any Unix/Linux, so I don't know how to troubleshoot properly, and have only tried a few things which I have picked up from other forums. But unfortunately nothing seems to work. The first thing I did after a clean install was I looked in the Fedora 13 documentation, that says I should check that the NetworkManager is controling the interface, I tried to start up NetworkManager but nothing happens, no reaction what so ever. I tried rebooting and then restarting NetworkManager, but no matter what I try, I won't work, not even if I am using the root account.
I noticed right after the install, that there was a choice of connecting to a hidden network in the lower right corner of the screen, but while I have been trying to get the NetworkManager to work, it has suddenly disappeared (I have disabled SSID broadcast on my Linksys router. I've tried to run lsmod and it seems like the right firmware is running, I think it was called IWL3945 or something like that. I think there were around 3 such modules running, plus a Dell module.
Another important note, before I even touched the the WIFI, I connected to the Internet via my normal fixed LAN connection, and installed all the updates that were available and rebooted the system. I am using an LinkSys WAG354G V2 ADSL router, where I have disabled SSID broadcast. Is there a kind soul out there, who has a good idea of what the problem is, or a good idea of how to troubleshoot it ? since a laptop without a WIFI connection is not of much use to me.
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
When I log in to linx and connect to my University's public wifi, it disconnects or if it stays connected, I cannot ping anything or load any webpages. But when loggod in to windows I can write this message now. Signal strength is 28% Can anything be done to still use wifi in linux and not have to log in to windows?
I just installed Fedora 15 yesterday and can't get wi-fi to work. When I click 'on' on the Wireless label, it goes back to 'off' immediately. When I open the Network Settings menu and disable Airplane mode, the Wireless connection goes on and then off immediately. I took a look at /var/log/messages and it shows this:
The best word that suits me to introduce is I am a novice! :-) but it is the difficult part get over with the new things and learnings!
Well once such situation made me introduce me to you is "Kernel Crash". I've recently installed Fedora 14 64 bit version on my HP HDX premium series, since then this Kernel crash is chasing me down! code...
Sound disappears as soon as I try to use an application e.g. News Video Fox, CNN, BBC or playing a video disk or cd disk, and a kernel module crash is reported (listed below from logs) After this happens no sound, and the desktop freezes (X11 only Linux is fine). Restarting X obviously do not solve the problem.
It seems that Fedora 12 has sever problems with Intel Sound cards.
I guess it is not really a Kernel developers problem but more the authors for the sound module causing the crash. I already reported it through the popup to "kernel-oops" by clicking on the "black screen" popup reporting the crash on FC12.
Here follows the logs containing the crash info.
WARNING: at sound/pci/hda/hda_intel.c:565 azx_send_cmd+0x36/0x1df [snd_hda_intel]() (Tainted: G W ) Hardware name: Macmini2,1 BUG?
I have a fresh installation from the demo ISO image of F14 running on an Acer TravelMate 4200. The system is a Dual Boot with win Vista. Windows Vista runs without any problems but when using F14 a kernal crash constantly occurs and it then hard freezes or hangs and the machine needs to be cold booted. There is nothing in particular that I am doing either, the problem happens when the machine is idol or when I am working in various apps.
The F14 system is completely up to date running kernel version 184.108.40.206-91.fc14.i686. The following error below is from the automatic bug reporting tool and I have reported this using the tool:

My graphics card (00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03))
used to work fine, but yesterday I opened glest and it crashed my computer within 5 seconds. No picture was ever displayed. I downloaded another 3D game called Nogravity (Glest being my only one, I wanted something else to test) and it crashed after a few minutes of play and I had to restart. After all the crashes kerneloops came up with a report.
Here is the most recent one:
I did recently notice that I have no direct 3D rendering, it comes up with something like: No (LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT SET)
I do not know whether I used to have it, but I do know that 3D apps used to run perfectly well. (In fact the stability of 3D apps was what converted me from Ubuntu where they crashed every 5 minutes)
I ran glxgears for 5 seconds and it gave me 420 FPS.
Happening right now on a Fedora XII 64 Bit:The latest Fedora kernel update (from today, 2009/12/01 - coming from fedora updates [not update-testing]) destroys my Intel GM45 (= i915 kernel driver) so much that I
1. Have no plymouth dooring booting (just this blue textmode lines on the bottom)
2. Have a completley black KDE screen (only my colorshaded windows shadows appear, if I rightclick into the darkness - with no contents) - that's however a composite effect which strangely enough works (Alt f2 reveals for the 10th of a second the "start application"-window and vanishes)
3. If I change to a tty console (eg.via CTRL ALT F5), in 3 of 5 tries the screen does not manage to change to the new video mode and flickers insanely (switching back betwwen CTRL ALT F1 [x-server] and CTRL ALT F5 [tty] a couple of times helps) which tells me that...
- at least KMS is gone. - 3D-Compositing is completly messed up resulting in a unusable complete black GUI
However, beside this
4. the KDM login screen appears in its full beauty and so does the "KDE loading" thing. Going back to kernel 220.127.116.11 makes any of this disappear and working nicely (I defaulted this in grub now). The computer is a lenovo thinkpad SL500 (cheap intel dualcore 64Bit CPU) with intel GMA4500 chipgraphics (if its not something with my linux configuration it should affect other similar notebook types too).
I really use fedora on my notebook (right now with kernel 18.104.22.168). My desktop uses a radeon HD 4870 - big bad luck with fedora 12: The radeon driver is not able to show KDE windows the right way (looks really really bad - even with those "experimental" Mesa settings-trick) and the unfree AMD driver does not work under fedoras high X Server version (which may be better this way! ) . So I end up using windows on it, waiting for a decent radeon driver to kickstart a decent 64bit linux (fedora still being first choice as the right compromise between cutting edge and usability)...
kernel-22.214.171.124-90.fc12 seems to break 802.11n with my intel 4965 chip on my thinkpad t61p. Anyone else seeing the same thing? iwconfig shows extremely low bit rate. dmesg doesn't show anything at all unusual.
I write the network driver. Transmission of packets in user space I do through netlink socket`s. In user space there is a handling of packets and their transmission on other device (however, it isn't important).
Problem in that any time, packets through the driver in system, and is reverse, are transferred normally. But then there comes the moment when the kernel crash. If to look in syslog it seems to me that comes deadlock. Also I think that it is related with netlink socket`s.
I can't find the information on that anywhere how correctly to use netlink socket`s in kernel space. Can at you will any a reason into the account of synchronization of sockets and the driver in kernel space?
Just a heads up to others. There is a kernel regression in the 2.6.35 kernel with regard to, some but not all Intel Gigabit ethernet adapters using the e1000e driver. After an otherwise successful upgrade from fedora 13 to 14, no ethernet connection could be made while using the upgraded 2.6.35 kernel that comes with fedora 14. The 2.6.34 fedora 13 kernels work fine and were fortunately still available after the upgrade.
I have personally seen the identical malfunction on all 2.6.35 kernels I've tried with both Arch and Aptosid and have seen similar reported problems on the Gentoo forum. In each case, going back to a 2.6.34 or upgrading to a 2.6.36 kernel solved the problem so this is almost certainly a kernel issue. My onboard Intel Gigabit ethernet adapter is:
What seems like forever ago now I tried to install Linux on this Intel 82855GME chipset laptop I was given. I started off with Fedora because it's what I'm most familiar with, unfortunately the live disk would crash at GDM so I could never get anywhere with it. Even doing a console based install would crash, but it at least pointed me in the right direction, it seemed the kernel was crashing for some reason (see image)Fedora livedisk crashlivedisk-error.jpg (95.96 KiB) Viewed 695 times
After 2 months without any problems, my second screen plugged on my laptop has stopped working. It works on my windows partition. When I start the computer, I see the login screen on both screens. When I enter the password, both screen turn to black. If I unplug the extra monitor, the laptop start normally.I'm on Ubuntu Natty, my laptop is a Thinkpad E420s with Intel HD graphics, i5 cpu, 4gb ram.
Last night I installed F12 x86_64 from a liveUSB in my laptop with Atheros wireless. During the install process and after the first boot I was able to surf the web connected to the wireless network (signal was good and all). After I updated the whole system, however, the wireless network is no longer available (Network Manager does not even show the Wireless interface or the network list).
Obviously a laptop without wireless is mostly worthless. What am I supposed to do to get my (perfectly working*) wireless network back?
