/sbin/lspci reports this: 01:00.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2800 802.11n PCI iwconfig reports nothing Network manager doesn't see it. The card works when I run it from Win 7. I tried rt2800 and rt2860. no results I am fairly new to Linux and I don't know all of the command line functions, How to get my wireless PCI card detected. After I installed the rt2860 driver, I didn't reboot. After rebooting, the card lit up and now I am functional. Woo Hoo.
How to get the Linksys: Wireless-N PCI Adapter with Dual-Band (WMP600N) working under FC10 with WEP encryption and linking up to a 54Mb/s Network. Hardware : D945GCLF2 with Intel atom330, 2G memory. As I got to this in a roundabout way, I would recommend that you follow the following steps and see if somewhere along the line your wireless starts working.
1: Get the latest driver from Ralink: [URL] In my case 2009_0918_RT2860_Linux_STA_v18.104.22.168.tar.bz2 (the line starting with RT2860PCI) Unpack, read the README_STA file and follow the instructions. Do: make && make install After this I could only get a wireless connection by doing:
i have just installed 10.10 under wubi, first time trying to use this network card under ubuntu. works fine on XP where it connects with good signal strength to a zyxel p-600 b/g router (my 3 other machines also connect fine to this router)
i am using WPA2, it takes 30secs to 1min to connect in the first place, then runs slowly and with intermittent disconnects, reports good signal strength in network manager.
i have been fortunate enough to have 3 machines that run ubuntu flawlessly out of the box..
I tried out ubuntu and I was beyond impressed with this OS. I decided it was time to do a complete migration to ubuntu. I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my HP laptop and everything went great. It detected all the drivers and my laptop is working in tip top shape. I decided to install ubuntu on a custom PC I recently bought (used for Java development), and that is when I started to run into problems. These are the specs on my custom pc:
I am using Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit edition on the system. First problem I am having is there is no audio on my system. For this card I'm using an HDMI cable to connect it to my screen. I installed the NVIDIA proprietary drivers and there was no audio. I reverted back to drivers I found on the NVIDIA website and still there is no audio. Second problem I am having is attributed to the wifi card I am using (I think). I keep getting this message on boot after post (and on the terminal after I switch off the X server by stopping gdm):
However, after the system boots I can connect to the internet.
I bought the wireless PCI network card WMP600N from Linksys. I tried to connect with my router, but no success. The correct driver is installed(RT2800), the necessary package WPA_supplement is also installed. My providers settings are WPA-PSK with a shared key. Key encryption is TKIP. I can't choose TKIP in the Yast network menu. so i chose passphrase.
the weird thing is that the wifimanager says WEP is on but it's not, at least not in my router and i did not setup WEP to. see picture 6. i had to use manual boot "ifup wlan0" because when i use boot at startup the whole systeem freezes. anyway, when i use ifup wlan0 as root in the konsole, the system also freezes. i have explained it clearly, please take a look a the pictures.
I'm having some trouble connecting to the wireless network here at home. The PC has a Linksys WMP600N wireless network card, which works fine under several versions of Windows. In Opensuse however, I cannot get it to find the network. Even though my laptop is right next to it, which has perfect connection to the network. The router is a Linksys WRT610N.
I've tried running iwconfig and iwlist scan in the terminal, but the scan returns no results and iwconfig indicates it does not have a connection to a network. I've turned off IPv6 as I read this can sometimes cause issues. I've also tried issuing the computer a static IP address, figuring the DHCP might be causing problems, but all to no avail.
I have installed Fedora 12 OS which is using kernel 22.214.171.124-99.fc12.x86_64. I am using a Linksys WMP600N Wireless-N PCI Adapter with Dual Band card which has a Ralink chipset. I have installed the latest rt2860 driver which uses the 126.96.36.199-99.fc12.x86_64 kernel. If there is any other pieces of information that is need I can provide it.
Problem: I can use either the Ethernet connection which is built into my ABIT mother board or my PCI wireless card. My Ethernet connection works perfectly however; my wireless card comes up attaches to my wireless router; that's it. There is a strong signal, the WPA2 security password works correctly. I am able to ping my loop-back address and my DHCP IP address for my wireless card but I can not ping the router or anything outside of my box.
If I let the ping program run for a while and allow it to try to ping the router, after a period of time ~5minutes or so I will get several hits and then stop. The firewall does not change from my Ethernet connection to my wireless connection. The Wireless connection is a trusted interface in my firewall specifications. Questions/Thoughts:
Can I use the same OS provided routing table for my Ethernet connection for my wireless connection? Would the OS know which port to use by switching to a wireless connection (after reboot)? Do I need to somehow switch or bridge the port? Is the wpa_supplicant playing with my connection and opening it up and then shutting it down? Below are some netstat data: routing, interface table, statistics, and dmesg on the kernel driver rt2860.
Trying to get Linksys WMP54G (RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI) card running in FC12 with WPA. The drivers are included in the distro. No luck with network manager. [root@nitefall ~]# lspci -v | grep -i network 01:00.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI .....
When I try to do ifup wlan0 I get: [root@nitefall ~]# ifup wlan0 Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Determining IP information for wlan0... <hangs there for a while>
I get the above error with or without encryption enabled at the AP. I've been over hundreds of posts on dozens of pages and nothing has worked. I have a dual-boot and the card works perfectly in Windows, so it's not a hardware issue.
Is anyone having problems since they updated? My card was working fine before I updated. Now it detects all the networks, including mine. However, when it tries to connect it sits there for ~2 minutes, then says it's disconnected. I've checked my security settings and they are fine.
I installed Fedora Core 12 on a Dell Latitude 610 laptop. Networking isn't working. I tried to start networking with '/etc/rc.d/init.d network start': there were no errors or warning messages, but before and afterwards, I could not ping anything.
I tried to configure and start networking with system-config-network. The ethernet network card shows up, but the activate button is greyed out.
I can ping the loopback address 127.0.0.1 after I start networking with '/etc/rc.d/init.d network start' but I don't really know what that means.
lspci tells me that my network "card" is a "NexXtreme BCM5751 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express".
I know the eternt cable is good because I used it on another machine.
I have a tricky problem which I could soIve with a c program. I wrote one and found I didnt have gcc so I tried to install it. I was told I needed to install packages. I acknowledged and an error was generated gcc-4.4.2-7.fc12.i686 requires libgomp = 4.4.2-7.fc12 I try to install libgomp and go round again.
I just installed Cable internet in my apartment. Part of the deal was a free Router (a Belkin). Now I already had a router so now I have an extra, and I remembered something I wanted to try If I ever got an extra router.... I read somewhere, that you can replace the firmware of the Linksys WRT54G Router/Switch with a Linux-based firmware.
I want to try this, but I have some concerns. I'm worried about losing my WPA2 Encryption, and connection problems; I have two Linux laptops (Ubuntu, and Fedora 64 bit) which connect Wirelessly, a desktop w/ 64 Bit Fedora 10, and two Vista Desktops that connect via Ethernet. Will the multiple Operating Systems cause a problem?
First off I'd like to say if I hadn't put Fedora on my USB stick I'd never discovered that my old laptop had built in wifi, and it was just disabled in the BIOS. I was originally trying to get my Linksys WEC600n card to work. Once I turned on the internal wifi, and took out the linksys card, fedora picked it up right away. My problem is when I try going to websites they won't work, except for FedoraProject. (If I try to navigate to the FP forums it doesn't work either.) I'm not sure what would be the cause of this, so I have no idea where to start.
1. It had my wireless network in the list. 2. I put in my WEP key. 3. It appeared to connect fine. 4. Websites won't load. 5. ?
I am trying to connect my desktop to the internet via my Linksys wireless usb WUSB11v2.8 adapter. My network showed up in the Network manager as soon as I installed Fedora and it asked for my network key, but it still doesn't connect. It just keeps asking.I was reading that possibly the driver is not compatible with the OS. I heard about RPMs and the ndiswrapper program that supposedly is supposed to help with compatibility issues so I went and installed both via a direct ethernet connection.
I guess my question is now since I have these programs, what else do I need and how do I go about completing the installation? I pretty much need to be baby stepped by step into how to do this including the best place to install the software, what files do I need, and where and how if I even need to get my device's chipset.
I am running Fedora 13 and I have a linksys WRT54G wireless router [1,2]. I'm having a strange problem. I'm using a computer connected to the router via a wired connection. At intermittent moments the connection seems to stop. I can't even ping the router (192.168.1.1). However, if I make NetworkManager reconnect to eth0 the connection immediately comes back and I can ping the router and navigate to websites. If I wait a random amount of time the connection also seems to comes back on its own (without reconnecting via NetworkManager). Any idea if this is a hardware (router) problem or a software problem? This didn't happen a month ago.
P.S: I have already updated to the latest firmware (Ver.8.00.8).[URL]..
my cisco wireless card model # wmp600n. Fedora doesn't even recognize that its there and i haven't been able to find any linux drivers for it, tried installing the driver using wine but still isnt working for me...
I just installed Fedora again, after a long absence. I have been using XP. I am having issues setting up my wireless card Linksys WMP54G. For some reason the card has been recognized, and the interface is there. But I have tried every walk-trough known to Google, and it still won't work. I have been using the GUI tools, but they don't work. I have also been using the command line walk through, and they aren't working either. Does anyone know which files I need to set and what the process would be?
I have just upgraded to FC 12 from FC 11 everything on FC 11 was fine, I has samba, openvpn, subversion, tinyproxy and apache all working fine. Friends could vpn in and do all the stuff they where allowed to do,
Now unfortunately I have this issue after upgrading to FC12, All the samba mounts have disappeared from all my friends computers, when I look at the log files I now see this;
smbd/server.c:457(smbd_open_one_socket) smbd_open_once_socket: open_socket_in: Address already in use
"Dell 1525 WLAN PCIe card with11n mini-Card & external antenna" wireless card. It got recognized fine by FC12, but it was rather slow. I had read that life would be better in FC13 with the new kernel. After a long wait, I upgraded to FC13 yesterday.
It seems that the wireless is indeed faster. However, it it clearly a lot slower than under Windows 7 (it is a dual boot PC). My test is simply to play say Hulu in full screen: under Windows it looks fine, under FC13 it plays in slow motion.
kernel-188.8.131.52-90.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'm having problems getting two wlan cards to work under Networkmanager with F12. I have an old server that I wanted to move, so thought I'd get a USB wlan device for it. before setting up the server, I thought I'd try the USB (an Edimax EW-7711USn - Ralink 2870) on my laptop first. My laptop has an inbuilt ipw2200 card that works fine under NM.
So I've down loaded the DPO_RT3370_LinuxSTA_V184.108.40.206_20100831.tgz file from Ralink, and built the driver (after changing the os/linux/config.mk file for the WPA supplicant settings). I also install the rt2870 firmware (from Ralink) in the /lib/firmware directory. I also blacklisted the rt2800usb driver to ensure that that didn't get loaded.
The problem I have is that I can now get both the ipw2200 device and the rt2870 devices 'working', but they both try to assume the same IP (I want fixed IP's and not DHCP for them) - what is the way to configure the 'devices' so that the rt2870 device is always given IP x and the ipw2200 given IP y?
I think my problem is really my lack of understanding where/how NM handles the files under the GUI config. I used to semi understand how the old network config tool set up it's files and where they were etc. But with NM I'm a bit lost as to how it equates the device with the network settings. Once I have the device working with the correct driver on my laptop, I'll look to apply the same settings on the server (which is then FC13 - but should be simpler as it doesn't have an existing wlan interface).
The system will also crash when booting if it is not plugged in. However, this behaviour is not consistent. The crash is not really a crash so much as a complete system freeze, where not even the numlock light on the keyboard will turn on or off. I have to do a hard reset to get it going again.The last entry before the reboot in /var/log/messeges just shows eth0 link going down.
I'm having trouble getting my wifi devices to work on my 128bit WEP network. I have a new Thinkpad T400, with an internal Intel PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN. I also have some cardbus cards: a Lucent ORiNOCO Gold, a Linksys Wireless-G, and a TRENDnet TEW-421PC. I have them set up as interfaces eth2, eth1, and eth3. (The TRENDnet isn't recognised as a network card at all, so no interface for it.) I have installed the latest firmware for the Linksys card.
The /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* files are virtually identical for all of them, differing only in the HWADDR and DEVICE lines. So here's the behaviour:
1. The Lucent card comes up just fine. 2. The internal 5100AGN and the Linksys cards won't come up, and watching with iwconfig shows that they're either associated with my AP OR they've got an encryption key set -- but not both. 3. When trying to bring up the 5100AGN, I get the following messages:
iwlagn: index 0 not used in uCode key table iwlagn: index 3 not used in uCode key table
/var/log/messages shows DHCPDISCOVER requests being sent, but they're bound to fail since the association with the AP with WEP isn't being completed. And yes, the ifcfg-* files really *are* identical except for the DEVICE and HWADDR lines. The /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules file correctly maps the interfaces to the MAC addresses. So why does my antique ORiNOCO card work and thew newer ones fail? How can I track down what's being done wrong/not being done?
I have a new F12 install, and my syslog is filling up with messages about USB. I have 2 USB devices plugged in directly to the mobo (bluetooth keyboard receiver, touchscreen), and it keeps redetecting them and then disabling the port for some reason.

I have installed broadcom-wl and (a)kmod-wl and my mobile broadband is detected and working (and also the wired connection).
I have a broadcom 4322 with the broadcom-wl driver on Fedora 11. It worked the first time I used it, and since then is unable to detect any networks. I've tried reinstalling the driver, and it still does not work. Any suggestions?
I recently installed Fedora on an old computer of mine that I pulled out of storage, and I can not get it to detect my wireless network. Previously it was running Windows XP and I was able to get it to connect, but now that I'm on Fedora it doesn't even detect my network. I tried lspci and lsusb but I didn't find anything under network, only Ethernet showing my linksys. I know I must have a wireless chipset, but nothing will show.
I also attempted to yum install ndiswrapper because another thread with a similar problem suggested this, and when it prompted me for my password it wouldn't let me type. How would I go about fixing this?
My networkmanager understands that the card is installed. But it can not find any network. Also iwlist scan gives me no result. I did not have this problem on earlier fedora releases. Recently I upgraded to F12 from F11. I should mention that I have another USB DLink wireless card and when I plug it, everything works fine with that card. I also tested wl_apsta driver using fw-cutter. I did not work neither.
