the PC just hangs for ever. No mouse movement, ctrl-alt-del, nothing.
I have downloaded a Linux driver from Realtek but it will not compile. I have the latest kernel-devel, headers, and gcc. I can post compiler errors if anybody would like. They're all apparently to do with missing parameters.
until yesterday night wireless was working fine on openSUSE 11.2 After a reboot, suddenly wireless is not even shown as a possible network medium. In the network manager, the tab with "wireless" is greyed out.After going through many forum posts, here is what all I have tried.Output from various commands:
I guess that driver is not getting loaded since modprobe is giving an error which I mentioned earlier. What could be reason? Did driver crashed? Since this issue cropped up only after I rebooted the machine.
I have got Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Inspiron Laptop. Can't get anywhere with wireless network. Tried a few bits of poking it blindly with a stick:
matthew@ubuntu:~$ lshw -C network Warning: you should run this program as super-user. *-network Description: Network controller Product: BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY Vendor: Broadcom Corporation Physical id: 0 Bus info: pci@0000:0c:00.0 Version: 01 Width: 64 bits Clock: 33MHz Capabilities: bus_master cap_list Configuration: driver=b43-pci-bridge latency=0 Resources: irq:17 memory:f69fc000-f69fffff *-network .....
I reckon *-network DISABLED is a problem, I tried sudo ifconfig wlan0 up but that didn't work. The output of that and lspci are on the ubuntu side of my machine. I have also tried pressing my wireless on/off key (F2) but that doesn't work either.
I am tring to get my linksys wireless router to connect to my laptop that i recently installed Fedora 10 on. Well it is actully running of an external HD. Any way when i boot in windows it connects and works fine, but when i try to activate wlan0 it says "Cannot activate network divice wlan0!" "determining IP info failed..."
The past couple days I've been attempting to use ndiswrapper to connect to my home network wirelessly and have run into a slight problem. I'm able to install ndiswrapper (of course), and install the driver. ndiswrapper -l comes up good, showing the driver is in place for my netgear wg311v3 card.
modprobe ndiswrapper I am able to get to work without errors, except, when i type ndiswrapper -ma it writes another file to /etc/modeprobe.d/ndiswrapper causing the deprecation error.
The card scans for networks, and I'm able type in my encryption key.
However it doesn't connect. | grep comes up with the error that the wlan0 link is not ready.
I think I've also been able to determine that the configuration I've put in to the card through the network manager is not actually configured.
Anyone know how I could possibly connect with the card.. It seems it should be able to work. alias wlano is also in place.
I've been able to get a laptop on Fedora 14 (22.214.171.124-48) working with a Netgear WNA1100 Once up and running, I execute "ifconfig wlan0 up" from root, and everything connects just fine and is stable as long as I stay logged in. But, I haven't found how to do this automatically on boot.
I've tried to use NetworkManager, but I cannot figure out how to get the GUI to show up - it says its running and enabled in the Services gui, but I haven't figured out how to actually use it! I checked to see if the nm-applet is running with ps, and for the user login, I see:
I'm not sure if the "sm-disable" flag is my problem, or how to change it. I'm not even sure if NetworkManager will allow me to set things up for bootup, but that is the path I ran down...
I assume this is a fundamentally easy process to set this up on bootup, but I'm not stumbling across the method. I recall doing this kind of thing years ago when I was an engineer, and before I got my lobotomy to become a manager...
m using redhat 5.3 i have installed a driver for wifi as per my wireless card... i checkd my kernel version , nd it is as per the requirements... but i hve a file name iwl3945.ucode how to install the driver using this file...?
Having trouble with wireless and FC11, eth0 is ok. When I try to activate wlan0 through system-config-network 1.5.97, I get msg: Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Determining IP information for wlan0... failed. This is a compaq laptop.
i can't get a pppoe conection working over a wireless network,in windows I have to connect to the router first, and then put in my user and password to get connected, but i don't know how to do this on fedora, i get connected to the router through network manager, and ping is ok, but when i try to make a new xDSL connection i don't know how to make it work through the wireless network that is established and working with my router.
Commands as root works well when normal user is logged in and connected to net via KDE 4 network manager, but after logoff network is gone. And it is impossible to get it back because command mentioned above stops working!
I am having a problem trying to transfer large file (~700MB) from one station in my home to another. I have 3 PCs hooked up through a router. 1 is wired to the router and the other two are wireless. One wireless is a laptop that has a built-in Atheros wireless card that was supported during the FC13 install. The other wireless has a plug-in wireless card made by Belkin (F7D1101). I had to use ndiswrapper to get it to work on FC13.(BTW all PCs are running FC13)
The one with the Belkin card is, I think, the problem. The one with the Atheros card will transfer files at a rate of about 8MB/sec to the one with the wired ethernet connection. The one with the Belkin card will not transfer at rates over 300KB/sec to either of the other two PCs. I have tried file transfers both encrypted and not and it makes no difference.
Since 126.96.36.199-170.2.35.fc10.x86_64, dhclient wlan0 doesn't seem to work any more.
However, bizarrely, dhclient eth0 does (to the same D-link wireless router).
The AP shows connected - tail /var/log/messages
No working leases in persistent database - sleeping.
WINXP connects just fine. This (B43) has worked nicely ever since FC10 came out, and I was able to use the WiFi at all kinds of places on a recent trip. Other than a couple of yum updates, I don't think anything else has changed since. Other devices on the wlan are getting their DHCP requests satisfied correctly.
Is anyone else having this problem since about a week ago? Perhaps there's something really obvious I'm missing. I can manually assign an IP address to wlan0, manually edit the routing tables and edit /etc/resolv.conf, and then Wifi seems to work OK, so it doesn't seem to be b43 itself unless it is dropping DHCPOFFERS. If this isn't a regression, does anyone have any tips about how to debug this?
I just installed Fedora 13 from the Live CD. FIrst off I read the guide and the first step doesn't even work for me. System>Administration>Network does not exist. If I go to System then Preferences I see a Network Manager but it looks nothing like what these screen shots look like. [url]
No wireless card show up in the wireless tab of Network Manager. How can I fix this since my card is listed in ifconfig and iwconfig. Wifi card is a Zonet zew2500p
client <--> wlan0 <--> computer <--> eth0 <--> internet
i have 2 network connections eth0 wired connected to internet wlan0 wireless (work fine) i have installed hostapd with madwifi and so on oki when i run hostapd the clients see the hot spot oki clients connect with wpa oki network manager run at demand not automatic (keep it for internet help) now i'm a bit lost what do i need is wlan0 give the client an ip (dhcp demand) create a bridge between wlan0 and eth0 steps to create a permanent bridge between wlan0 and eth0
I have setup hostapd and a bridged setup with br0 bridging eth0 and wlan0. The setup works but unfortunately not on bootup. The reason is that the bridge can't add iface wlan0 because it is down for some reason at this time. When hostapd is running (after the network script) the interface is up and can be added to bridge via
Just installed f14 on my Toshiba laptop, which has a realtek ethernet card. i installed the drivers from the realtek site with no issues (also, i know the card is good, i had it working on suse a while back). No matter what I try, i cannot seem to get the computer to recognize there being a wireless connection (tells me no such thing as wlan0).ifconfig shows the following:
Code: # ifconfig eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 88:AE:1D:F4:AD:88
I am also using gnome-NetworkManager. If I left-click on the NetworkManager icon down on the taskbar near the clock it shows "Wired Networks" with eth0 connected, and "Wireless Networks" is blank under the heading, last week I believe it said something like "device unavailable" or something like that.
Network Details: iwconfig Code: lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. [Code]....
I was curious about when the last time I was able to successfully use my wifi so I checked to see in NetworkManger and it just so happend to be that I was on a business trip in Atlanta on a different network then am usually connected to. Don't know if that has to do with anything but I thought it was worth mentioning.
Also, I thought it may have something to do with assigning an IP address static-or-auto but I am not too familiar with NetworkManager to check that.
Earlier on my wireless is attached as eth1 and it works on to load conky except the Network section is blank. After that I had renamed eth1 to wlan0 and checked at ifconfig it is working fine.Now the conky won't load and I think something to do with my wlan0.
I'm having problems getting my wireless network working. The same problem exists in both Debian 5.04 and Ubuntu 8.04. I'm using a Sonet ZEW2500P USB wireless card, which shows up when I look at lsusb. The card works under Windows, so its not a hardware problem.
When I run iwconfig, wlan0 simply doesn't show up on the list. It doesn't go by any other name either. I've tried adding iface wlan0 inet dhcp auto wlan0 to my /etc/network/interfaces file, but to no effect. I've tried using both the rt2000usb driver and the old rt2570 driver, and made sure both are not loaded at the same time using lsmod, but this doesn't help.
I wanted to try the CONFIG_NET_RADIO enable/rebuild kernel technique, but I can't find CONFIG_NET_RADIO anywhere in my autoconf.h file!
I assume someone will want to see a log file of some kind - just let me know which one (and where I can find it).
How do I add a route that doesn't go away after a reboot? I tried adding to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-wlan0 and /etc/sysconfig/static-routes but neither of them did anything when I restarted network and NetworkManager. route command does not show the new route that I added. I tried this too - routes.html and there were no errors but the new route doesn't show up with the route command.I added "192.168.13.88/255.255.255.255 via 192.168.13.101 dev wlan0"
I've had 11.4/KDE working pretty well on dual boot Asus G73SW for a few weeks now. Only issues were the FN-* functions that control keyboard lights and whatnot but no biggie since the essential worked.The last couple of days the update notification was indicating 1,201 updates to be made. Yeah it seemed extreme but I googled around and checked the forums and there was nothing related. I figured I might be missing some packages since I installed from the live KDE CD (still 1202 updates!!!???). So I updated. Big mistake!!!!! Ever since NetworkManager cannot connect to the internet, be it wired or wireless.
Initially it could not even see my home network but it picked it up after I removed the plasmoid from the panel and reinstalled it. However it doesn't respond when I click the network icon and still no connection.I managed to get eth0 working with ifup but not wifi. The last part of network manager log file is quoted below. I can send the whole thing to whoever is interested. I can't make sense of it but maybe someone on the forums can.
I'm having problems trying to turn on the power saving on my intel 3945ABG wireless chip with the iwl3945 module. if i remember correctly, i used to be able to have the power levels adjusted before with previous releases / kernel (i started caring about power savings back again after getting a new battery).
keying 'iwconfig wlan0 power on' returns Error for wireless request "Set Power Management" (8B2C): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported.
And 'iwpriv wlan0 power' returns wlan0 no private ioctls
Is there something i'm missing or does the chip/module doesnt support power saving features?
