Fedora Networking :: Can't Start Wireless Automatically With Ath5k On F9
Jul 4, 2009
After an upgrade to 18.104.22.168-78.2.56.fc9.i686 in March, my Atheros wireless stopped working. (It had previously run without a hitch for 9 months). Anyway, I finally got around to working on it today and using the "WiFi misery" thread managed to consistently get it to start manually via these steps:ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 essid netname key xxxxxxxxxxxxx
click on "activate" in network device control (gives error msg, but works)
During boot-up, I get "Invalid argument" errors for "SET MODE", "SET BIT RATE", and "SET ENCODE".Currently NetworkManager service is disabled, but when enabled doesn't seem to change any of the above.I'd like to get back to automatically coming up wireless, if possible.
Cannot get wireless to work. Hostapd.conf had nothing inserted in it so I put the following in which I found [URL]..So it connected right away and then disconnected after opening one of my tabs. I went back into hostapd.conf and it had erased all the info I put in there. Is there a way to keep it from deleting this info every time. Because it worked great for a brief second. Otherwise it just keeps going on, then going off. It stays off most of the time though. Right now this is what my iwconfig reads:
I have a new HP G62-352CA with the Realtek 8191SE wireless. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 everything works fine except every time I restart the computer I have to press fn f12 to restart the wireless. Is there a way to have it default on at startup?
I've followed a few different steps to try and solve the wireless issue, but no luck so far. I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 with Atheros 5001 "ath5k" driver and module. I use "WPA & WPA 2 Personal" security.I first did "rfkill list all" to see what was being blocked, and at the time, I had this:Quote:
0: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: yes
Where I can get my wireless network running by typing the following lines of code:
But I have to do this every time I boot the machine. Ideally, I want the machine to do this on it's own at startup.
Also, I'm totally new to linux and I don't really understand what the 1st line of code is doing? The 2nd is just to check that the 1st line worked, and the 3rd does the settings for the wireless network I'm connecting to.
If you want to get into why I have to do this every time, then look at my original thread. But I started this new thread just to find out how I can get these lines of code done automatically at startup.
i cannot find how to sucessfully patch the ATH5k driver for aircrack for better support on injection. i tried this...[URL] but it was a no go for me... first... i untarred it to my desktop, then i patched the ATH5k driver but batch 2 failed and i had to take out the switches in the patch command to work. can someone please give me (and im sure many other people) a litteral step by step to patch this damn ATH5K driver, i got another one i want to patch with i found on the aircrack-ng that i want to patch as well but the same issue is there...i run Ubuntu 10.04 with the 2.6.32-25-generic kernel, no custom anythings, not even compiz.
I have a Centos 5.4 server, I would like to know how to start NFS automtically when the server boots up so that I won't have to manually start the service after the server boots up. where and how do I accomplish this?
i use ubuntu 10.10 installed in wubi on my girlfriend's machine.in order to connect to the internet i had to install a dialer script and then i need to type in terminal: sudo cable-start and then password BUT i wish this to happen automatically when booting the machine.i am sure that it is possible, but have no clue how to do it.
have search the web for answer and there are some suggestion. tried those suggestion but was not successful.appreciate if any one can help to resolve this? I'm running fedora 11 and using the NXserver for remote access
I just installed a fresh copy of Fedora 14. When I am browsing the internet it seems like it takes forever to look up the host. In firefox I went and disabled the IPv6 option and it seemed to fix the issue, but Chrome is still having the problem. Is there a way to change this setting in Chrome?
Also I have installed conky but I can't figure out how to get it to start automatically when I log on? Can someone point me to the file I need to edit to make it work?
Hi all, a new Linux user and long time Windows user, I have added a dual Boot to my Samsung N220 netbook to dual boot to Windows 7 or Ubuntu Netbook, Very pleased thus far, I had a little trouble getting the wirless network to connect and had to update the drivers via a wired connection.
My issue now is that I have to manually connect to my wirless network each time I use the netbook, I checked the box to automatically connect, but this does not seem to work. If I use the link at the top and select 'Connect to Hidden network' (my SSID is hidden) it will then allow me to select a previous connection and then connects fine, but I thought like Windows it would have connected automatically if a listed network was in range. Any ideas what the problem might be or suggestions to get this working better?
I'm using a Linksys router and have just installed Ubuntu 11.04. I was hoping each team I logged in that it would connect automatically to my router but I always need to manually click on it to connect.
Under Network Connections - wireless it is listed as Auto Linksys but doesn't connect automatically.
Is there a simple way to resolve this? I can't see it.
I have a problem with running Apache web server. I think my problem is either I can not get httpd to load automatically or it's being blocked from external unless I'm logged in, don't know which. Or, I'm completely off base. Either way, being logged in solves the problem. Now I just need to fix it. This is a brand new server running latest apache and fedora 10 (all fully patched). Loaded from source to all default (non RPM directories - apache is /usr/local/apache2/... )
I modified the existing /etc/init.d/httpd script and had it point to the /usr/local/apache2 areas.I even did a chkconfig --add httpd and show it is on for run levels 2345.The problem is that when I reboot the server httpd does not load because I can not access the website.However, the minute I login to the server as a user (non-root) it automatically loads httpd and the website works.Then, when I logout, everything is inaccessible again. I even tried to put the commands in the /etc/rc.local script (or wherever it is).Same thing happens.I know this is a simple fix. Just don't know what it is. Is it related to SElinux? However, wouldn't SElinux create access problems regardless of being logged in or not? Once I'm logged in, everything automatically fixes itself (either it's a service load or a rights filter fix).
Remember, everything works perfectly as long as I'm logged in to the server (even as a non-root user). Just the act of logging in makes the web server accessible from to the rest of the world. However, when I logout, the web server is inaccessible.
I'm still new to ubuntu and love it so far but one thing I can't seem to figure out that I use to have in windows is the ability to connect to the closest wireless network available (either one with a stored key or the closest without a password). My house has have two routers and depending where I am in the house one signal can be very week and sometimes lost where another is very strong I'd like ubuntu to connect to the closest one if it's not already connected to one when going to friends/school ect it automatically connects to any network even if it's not stored
Each time I boot up my laptop, I have to manually connect to my wireless network. When I ran Ubuntu virtually from Windows 7, it found the connection automatically. Now I have a dual partition of W7 and Ubuntu and it won't auto connect. How can I make it so?
I have Windows 7 and Fedora 14 both on my laptop in dual boot configuration. When my computer starts up it shows a screen that says press any button to select another operating system to start, then I can make Windows 7 start. But after 2 seconds, if I DON'T press any button then Fedora starts automatically. How can I change this so Windows starts automatically when I don't press any button?
now my system does not connects automatically when fedora start's to eth0 i have to connect it manually by pull down menu in the beginning hostnname was dbe272b22.dslam-172-17-161-245-0532-474.dsl.cantv.net i do not remember if the last part ".cantv.net" was there.... i changed hostname "dbe272b22.dslam-172-17-161-245-0532-474.dsl" maybe ending with ".cantv.net" with system-config-network for hostname "edicta" i modified /etc/hosts by hand twice, now do not remember what i did exacly but here you can see /etc/hosts
I configure the wireless connection. It works. I restart, and and doesn't automatically even though it asked my if I wanted to use the profile next boot and I said yes.. How do I get it to save? I tried several times.Maybe there's a terminal command? The computer is for a COMPLETE newb who only wants it to browse web, but they're not going to know how to connect every time even if I explain.
I use Opensuse 11 with fvwm. How can I get conky start automatically when I start fvwm?
I setup the conky under fvwm session for my Opensuse 11 but it won't start automatically. I am wondering how to write some kind of scripts to force it to start automatically and with a delay about 10 seconds after fvwm starts.
