I can't use Network Manager (it continue to ask me for the WPA password9. So I stopped it and I use command line, following this: [URL]
From the log I can see that it tried to associate to AP and after a lot of tries: it connects BUT the connection is really SLOW and UNSTABLE! (pinging hosts on the same network gives me about 50% packets loss) I am worried about this entry in the log:
ath5k phy0: unsupported jumbo
I am going to try to install madwifi, but before that I'd like to have your opinion and listen your experience! I see a lot on infos about ath5k, but I'd like to be pointed to the right direction!
I've got a little netbook, and all works fine, except for one small thing. I'm able to connect to a wireless network with my Atheros AR5001 just fine. However, if I right click on the network icon, and disable network or wireless and enable it again, wireless won't work anymore. I can't see and connect to any network at all. Except when using airodump-ng from the famous aircrack-ng tool set. When using airodump I'm able to see any network and their specs just fine. I don't even have to be in monitor mode to do airodump-ng (the wireless must be off in the network manager though). Is there any way of getting my wireless back when I turn it on again?
I'm just having a bit of trouble with activating my wireless card (see title for details). rfkill - I installed it but nothing was soft / hard blocked (whatever they mean). I did the rfkill unblock command anyway but it didn't appear to change anything Tried doing it manually through system-config-network but this yielded no luck either. Basically all it does is continually ask for my WEP key, even though I've typed it in correctly a million times. why I don't have WPA2 because I do not have the ability to change it
I got a used computer (Toshiba Satellite A215-S5829) for Christmas, and it was running Vista *shudder* so I decided to wipe the hard drive, and install the latest Ubuntu. This is my first real foray into linux, and I've loved the system, but the only problem I've had with is so far is I can't get the wireless to work. I believe the card it has is Atheros AR5001, and I've tried installing the "madwifi" drivers, but I can't get them to register. I've been following the suggestions of dozens of different forum posts and answers I've found scattered around the internet, but I haven't been able to get anything to work correctly.
When I view the "Additional Drivers" in System > Administration, it says "Alternate Atheros "madwifi" driver: This driver is activated but in use," but when I click on the internet icon in the top panel, it only gives me the wired connection. It used to also give me the wireless option, just without ever successfully finding any wireless networks to which it could connect. Like I said, I've done about a half-dozen different things without any success.
I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.04, and today the wireless connection has started to become spotty. The networks menu shows no wireless entries when they were there the day before. Again I have the Atheros AR5001 wireless card, my network is WPA2 and is 802.11g
A Toshiba 35MX-S114 laptop with Atheros AR5001 works but unless the laptop is in the same room as the router I am not able to connect.
After a relative gave me their old laptop, I installed 10.04 Lucid but I am having problems with the Atheros AR5001 based wifi. I've been able to update the OS using wifi with the laptop in the same room as the router. If I move about 9 metres away from the router into another room, with applet showing 3/4 blue bars and effectively still within line of sight of the router, I lose the connection. Wifi receive is working so well that the Network Manager Applet detects several of my neighbours' routers but not well enough for me to connect to our router.
Originally on the Toshiba laptop under XP there's supposed to be a hotkey Fn+F8 which enables/disables the wifi antenna, in contrast Fn+F9 does disable the touchpad as stated in the manual.
My router is recognised but I cannot connect. Is it a driver issue?
I've been having problems with the Atheros AR5001 wireless card in my EEE PC. Whenever I'm connected to an encrypted network of any description (WPA2 at home, WPA-PSK at work), the connection will drop out after some time, ask for the key again, then will drop out after a shorter time. This repeats until it's continuously asking for the key. This is no problem with an unencrypted connection. I've installed the madwifi module as per the instructions in this thread, but that doesn't seem to have helped.Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS, 2.6.32-33-generic i686 kernel.
i'm running Ubuntu 10.10 32-bit on an Acer Aspire 3050 laptop with an Atheros AR5BMB5 WiFi card.
The problem i'm having is that the hardware switch to turn the WiFi on and off isn't working right. When I hit the switch to turn it off, the light doesn't turn off, and Ubuntu just disconnects from the network and searches for more WiFi networks - it doesn't say that the WiFi has been deactivated, and I don't think it is. When I hit the switch again, it finds my network and connects to it.
The lspci -v | less command gives me the following information for the WiFi:
Code: 08:04.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR2413 802.11bg NIC (rev 01) Subsystem: AMBIT Microsystem Corp. Device 0418 Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 168, IRQ 21
It lists a different model of card, but it's using what I assume is the correct driver, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. I've checked the card itself and it is a AR5BMB5.
I would like to fix it so the switch actually turns the WiFi off instead of just making it search for more networks (I assume it's not actually turning off), and perhaps make the light turn off as it should as well.
I have Ubuntu 10.10 on a Toshiba satellite L300 with an Atheros AR5001 wireless network card. I can get the computer to see the network but it wont persist, it keeps going offline or asking to be re connected.Also Firefox will not find the internet even if the wireless icon shows the wireless network is alive.I can use the laptop for the internet if I plug in the LAN cable but have no luck with the wireless. Security for the modem is using WPA&WPA2 and it will connect according to the icon in the title bar for the wireless network. I have tried the Atheros site for a driver but had no luck finding one. Not even sure if that is what I need to do.
I`ve read solution in this thread. [URL] It seems Linux driver for AR5001 does`n support ad-hoc mode. But user Selak found solution with a bridge. With this advice by my AR5001 card can finally be detected by other devices. I can connect to it with my girlfriend`s net-book with XP, but I still can`t share internet. May be I miss something. I haven`t shared wifi before.
I have a Acer Revo R3610 nettop on which I installed oS11.3. It has an Atheros AR5001 wireless network adaptor.I'm getting very bad latency and throughput on with this card. In comparison my Thinkpad with Intel card achieves at least 10 times the throughput from the same location. Also when I boot my wifi will come up authenticate and then a few seconds later disconnect and reconnect. I've tried updating the kernel to 2.6.35 as one of the fixes was to improve the performance of the ath5k driver. I'm using wpa2 authentication.
I have used Ubuntu without trouble for quite some time now on my computer (maybe 2 years; recently upgraded to 10.04) and have just bought a new computer for the office. When I install 10.04 on the new computer it doesn't seem to recognise the lan card, an atheros AR8151 onboard card (on a GA-G41MT-S2 mobo).
p.s. phrases such as 'build-essentials', 'sudo' and '.tar.gz' files don't mean anything to me (except the last is a bit like a zip file I think).
In my laptop, after upgrade, wifi stop working.My laptop is Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Pro V2065, wifi cart Philips 12127e (from IBM T41), linux kernel: 2.6.37-020637rc3.This card worked before upgrade, and work on windows Command lshw -c network return:Quote:

I have just purchased an Asus EeePC 1001HA netbook and I would like to install Ubuntu Netbook Edition 9.10 (love the look and the brilliant interface), but I can't get the wireless network to work. I am currently running from a 4Gb USB stick that has the LiveCD on it with a 1Gb persistence. The network notification area only shows wired and VPN connections. I have tried installing the Ralink 3090 driver but I have had no luck in getting the wireless to work.
I have a brand new ASUS EEE PC 900HA with Ubuntu 9.10 installed on it. The wireless hasn't worked yet but the ethernet is fine. I've been browsing the forums for hours to find a fix but now I've installed/queried/removed so many things I'm totally confused.
lspci -v gives me this

I have a Samsung N130 with a Realtek 8192 wifi card (possibly 8192e, I'm not sure) and I am trying to run Fedora 12 on it. I used to run Ubuntu until trying their latest beta and realizing it's not very good, so I looked for something else. Ubuntu was at least easy to get the wifi working with just a few quick commands that were written out, word for word, in order, on the Ubuntu forums. I tried openSUSE on here and it didn't have wifi working out of the box either but people on their forums refused to give me actual instructions and just kept bumping me from thread to thread with people giving vague advice or else just telling me I was looking in the wrong place. I'm hoping that someone can give me clear and detailed instructions on how to get this wifi card working. Keep in mind that I am coming from Ubuntu and so I'm not super comfortable in CLI, if I need to do some CL stuff I will need clear and detailed instructions on how to do that.
I have installed Fedora 12 on my laptop.Installing my Broadcom BCM 4312 wireless drivers works just fine, but after a reboot I have to reinstall them. modprobe wl, modprobe wlan0 etc doesn't work either. I need to reinstall them every time I reboot.
I'm runnig f 13 on my laptop, and it runs like a charm. But once in a while, the internet doesn't seem to work properly. It mostly works, but right now i am unable to reach certain pages such at google (which is annoying), whereas other pages like yahoo and this one works perfectly well.
how nobody else could have run into this in the meantime. [URL] Two friends of mine are having the same issue on Ubuntu-11.4-machines. In short: Connecting to the Cisco-VPN via shell-command "vpnc" works flawlessly, whereas NetworkManager just doesn't connect at all. We had this working in older versions of Fedora/Ubuntu about some months ago...
Struggled a little to get Broadcom driver working with my Dell laptop. But I am at a point where if I manually type 'modprobe b43' the wireless works. If I reboot, it doesn't work automatically and I have to 'modprobe b43' again. Any ideas what I am missing here?I can't seem to figure out how to get this to work automatically. I did check to activate device when computer starts in network manager
I've currently got the beta of fedora 12 installed, hope to upgrade that once the final release comes out. I'm having so many problems getting wireless to work. I've got a edimax ew-7711utn wireless adaptor. It doesn't work. Really what I want is to take it back and get a wireless card that will work.
I find it very frustrating that documentation suggests using PEERDNS=no in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ ifcfg-eth0 in order to override resolv.conf information only to find out that both NM and network init scripts ignore DNS1, DNS2 and DOMAIN settings.So my question is how do I correctly configure resolv.conf settings that will persistently override dhcp information on a F12 system that has NM removed and uses the network service scripts?
I recently installed Fedora 15 x86_64 on my new AMD Machine and I'm quite pleased with things thus far.Here's where my problem comes. I mainly bought that machine to help me with Development. More specifically, Virtual Machines for testing purposes. I have installed Fedora 15 x86_64 as a qemu-kvm Virtual Machine and it's working.. for the most part. I am having a whole lot of trouble getting it to connect to the Internet.
My guess is the only way I'm going to reliably do that is to setup a Bridge. Yes/no? However, in order to setup a Bridge I need to disable NetworkManager and that where the fun happens. It completely disables my network connection. I'm probably missing something small, but I can't figure out what I'm missing. I've double checked my ifcfg-em1 multiple times(I've been trying for ~24 hours so far) and all the settings are as they should be.
I've turned NetworkManager off and stopped it(chkconfig and service) and turned network on(chkconfig and service). Theoretically I should simply need to turn off NM and turn on network and things should be fine. no?
