I have a problem with my Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 3945ABG, The laptop doesn't have a hardware "turn-on" button for Wireless device, normal "windows shortcut" aren't also working. I couldn't turn it on using Network Configuration, it keeps giving me this message:
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) : SET failed on device wlan1 ; Invalid argument. RTNETLINK answers: No such device Determining IP information for wlan1... failed.
I recently installed F10 x86_64 on my Lenovo T61 laptop, and while I'm quite pleased with F10, I am having a difficult time with my wireless card. I spent most of yesterday searching for a solution, but none have presented themselves. Scenario: I am trying to connect to a HIDDEN SSID with NO ENCRYPTION (work Wifi, don't ask) using network-manager and its associated applet.
Symptoms: I left-click on NetworkManager, select "Connect to Hidden Wireless Network", enter my information, NetworkManager does a few things, and finally I'm told that NetworkManager cannot connect to my network.
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've just installed F12 64bit on my notebook. Everything works great. Only problem I'm having at the mo is my WLAN is slow at DNS resolution. On wired it works fine. I know it's not my access point as it is part if my router and I've rebooted it a few times. My other wireless notebook (Windows 7, Intel 3945ABG) doesn't have the same issue, and this notebook didn't when on Windows 7. I'm using OpenDNS as my forwarders.When I open a URL in Firefox (3.5.5) it opens the site immediately on wired. On wireless it will sit for 3-4 seconds before opening the site saying looking up .................. Once on the site browsing behaves normally.Anyone else having similar issues?

I've tried removing and modprobing iwl3945 but no luck.
I have an IBM Thinkpad T60, running Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) with a dual boot of Windows XP. I am having trouble getting it to connect to my home wireless network, which uses WEP. It connected fine at my university when I first installed Lucid, but has not connected at home. I can see the network in the panel applet, with a good signal strength, but when I try to connect it repeatedly asks me for my key and never actually connects. I had this problem shortly before I installed Lucid, though it was working for a long time previously. I'm not sure what update caused it to stop working because I was at my university at the time, and it works fine there even now, so I didn't realize it right away.
I doubt this is a hardware issue because I can connect to the same network when I boot into Windows. I have seen posts about similar problems on the forums, but couldn't find any solutions that helped me.
Below is the information the wireless help guide said to post. Machine Brand and Model: IBM Thinkpad T60
I installed Maverick earlier today on a Dell XPS M1210, and everything works beautifully, except for one thing: the wireless card. It is an Intel 3945ABG wireless card, and I've tried searching around and have found nothing,
I've always wanted to learn this branch of computing, and I do think it's rather interesting. So, I was following in unison both this and this, which so far just tell me to download ipwraw-ng and extract it, but when I cd into the folder, and say make, I get this:
Code: ibo@ibo-laptop:~$ cd Desktop/ipwraw-ng/ ibo@ibo-laptop:~/Desktop/ipwraw-ng$ make WARNING: $SHELL not set to bash.
I have my laptop dual booted between Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7. In Ubuntu I randomly lose connection to the wireless network. It always works fine when I first boot into Ubuntu but after a while my wireless connection will go down. The signal strength meter will go to zero bars and the black popup message will appear that my wireless connection has disconnected. At first, if I just wait a bit, the connection will come back. However, after about 4 or 5 times of doing this it will then ask me for my password, and inputting the password does not reconnect me to the AP. I am finally forced to reboot. Then it works OK for a while again and the cycle repeats.
It works fine in Windows7 all day, every day. I have the Release Candidate of Windows7 so it's going to expire soon. I would really prefer to make Ubuntu my everyday OS on this laptop rather than pay for a Windows7 license but I cannot tolerate a flaky wireless connection.
I had 8.1 on this laptop at one point and I never had any problems with the wireless then, that I can remember. I had no Ubuntu for a while but then I came back with the 9.1 and was loving it until the wireless problem reared it's ugly head.
Wireless found by lspci: 03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)
I'm new to linux. I've just installed Ubuntu 11.04. It has all been going ok, but the wireless just stopped working all of a sudden. The indicator light turned off and when I tried to turn it back on (Fn+F2) nothing happens. Sometimes, when I restart the computer, the wireless might work; but if the signal is lost the LED on my laptop turns off and I cannot reconnect. Also, in these strange cases that the wireless works when I restart I can manually turn it off (Fn+F2), but nothing happens when I try to switch it back on.
In the menu on the upper right corner I see 'Enable Networking' is checked, but 'Enable Wireless' cannot be modified.
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 and the wireless device is an Intel Pro/Wireless 3945ABG. I have tried to follow some of the threads on this forum on similar cases, but the ones that were comprehensible to me did not work (or I actually might not have understood them either). code...
What do you think? Wife just bought a new Compaq 610 series laptop. These are the wireless specs:
Code: 10:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection (rev 02) 30:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. Unknown device 4357 (rev 10) Strange thing is when I ping the router, I get this, pings one time then dies: Code: anna@katie:~$ ping 192.168.0.1 PING 192.168.0.1 (192.168.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
I'm new to linux and I install ubuntu on my wifes laptop since it will hopefully slow down the amount of problems I have to resolve.I ran the live cd of ubuntu and wireless was working all ok, showed my wife around and she was like ok install it.I used the GUI and install ubuntu, and updated (apt-get update) after that the wireless is not working.I see the device, but have no idea whats wrong. Please could someone inform me as to which things to post in order to get it sorted. Since this seems to be the only issue.
I just installed ubuntu as my primary OS, but I have the disk with XP on it and I don't want to go back, but I need faster network connectivity. I have a T60p with Intel Gigabit jacked into my Gigabit router which also has my desktop (running XP) and my NAS. If I FTP files from my NAS (or SCP), I get transfer speeds around 250-500 KB/s (which is not very fast). On this same switch, from my XP desktop I get transfer speeds around 12 MB/s. I get the same speeds using my 802.11n card (Atheros) as with the ethernet NIC (250-500 KB/s).The drivers for the ethernet card and the atheros card are e1000e and ath9k respectively.I have disabled IPv6. Since the problem occurs using either interface, I am just going to concentrate on fixing it for the Ethernet interface (since I believe it to be a systemwide problem).
skinnersbane@albert:~$ sudo ethtool eth0 Settings for eth0: Supported ports: [ TP ] Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Clearly my card is running at Gigabit, but why the bad transfer speeds? I am using filezilla for FTP (technically FTPES). I closed every other program. My CPU utilization does seem high and I wonder if this is part of the problem. I had no problems with throughput using either interface in Windows XP just one week ago.
I am unable to get my intel pro/wireless 3945abg connected to my router. The firmware has been installed and at first was even able to connect, but now the access point doesn't even show up in network manager. I am currently able to connect using a USB wireless adapter, but for certain reasons, would prefer to use the former. I've looked over this page with no results.
It's also because I've never had any big problem. The last openSUSE I used without problems was/is 11.2(I still use it as main desktop because of problems since 11.3).The problem is - the DL speed is repeatedly drops down to around 156KB/s albeit my top speed of router-NIC combination is at 21-22MB/s. When this happen and open network manager and click/reload my wifi or restart wireless or even computer, the speed is back at the top. But after few seconds, minutes it drops down again, and so on. I made some images(to see it on the network manager draphs):after that drop-off:and restart wireless:Best chance to see it is when downloading more files with FreeRapidDownloader or JDownloader. Upload speed is OK. The first time I've seen this problem in 11.3, which i've skipped in hope that 11.4 will be ok and now, as the EOL of 11.2 is coming I'd like to go on.It's also desktop and installation media independent(Gnome works similar, DVD, LiveCD).I've checked many other distributions and none of them had this problem. But openSUSE is my love, so i need and want to solve it
I clicked "Network Settings", and I found that the ip address was wrong, which is "192.168.1.10/24", and netmask field is empty, so I modifed the configuration file located in /etc/sysconfig/network, named ifcfg-wlan0, added one line(NETMASK= '255.255.255.0'), saved it and reboot the system. After rebooting the system, I still found the ip address is wrong and netmask field is empty, so I have to use ifup command to activate my card manually every time the system starts.
I installed Fedara 15 yesterday. I was running Fedora 13 before. Since I did the fresh install, my wireless network runs really really slow, i.e. a few KBs every 30 seconds whereas it ran at full speed in F13. I couldn't find the reason for it. I now tried the live-CD for Fedora 14 and it runs at full speed out of the box (whereas F15 is slow even with all updates installed). Does somebody know a solution?
Laptop: Lenovo X201 Network Card: Ultimate-N 6300
I gathered uname, iwconfig, lspci and dmesg output for both, Fedara 15 and Fedora 14. But as the number of links is limited here in the forum they're all linked here: [URL]
I am newbie to linux, I am dealing with Fedora core 13. I have already succeedded in building an ad hoc network and a WLAN network. My next step is to get some networking statistics such delay, throughput, etc. So, I need traffic to flow through the network for both multimedia traffic and bulk data traffic. How to send files between nodes on the network (I found commands ftp, rcp but do not know whether they are the correct choice for this). ID their any application to perform this?
Also, I want to perform some video streaming between two nodes to study the behavior of real time data transfer. Is thier any application to perform this?
I have been using FC10, it works well with wlan for sometime and goes inactive after some time and hence network goes unavailable. Even after few attempts to reconnect doesn't help. Rebooting helps in bringing it back temporarily.
I recently got a laptop computer and installed 64 bit fedora 11. I can make wireless connections fine but for my ISP I require a dial in using an username and password. On my desktop this is easy I just make a DSL connection under network manager and select eth0 my wired network card as the hardware and away I go. But now I can't select the wireless card as my hardware connection so my DSL keeps on trying to connect through eth0 which is obviously not plugged in. How do I go about making this connection? I have searched google and other people have this problem but I haven't seen any replies. I have tried using pppoe-setup and manually setting the hardware as wlan0 but this doesn't seem to work as under network manager it just defaults back to eth0.
I installed Fedora 14 yesterday via the installation DVD with 3,3 GB. Everything worked fine and when I connected to my wlan and entered the WEP key I got access to the internet. But after about 5 minutes, to connection just got cut and I was again asked for the WEP passkey. But when I entered it this time, the connection failed and I was just asked again (with the same key entered, it even got it saved from last time). As you can think, this is quite annoying, since the time I have internet is not even enough to get some updates done.
Ah, and by the way: The time I have internet it just is unbelievably slow. On my Windows partation, I don't have this problem. I do have a small hint what might be the problem: When I was using Ubuntu, I always had a similar problem, but it did not even connect to my wlan once. The solution was to blacklist some driver, but since I don't know if this might be the problem on Fedora too and if the drivers are the same as on Ubuntu and since I really have no idea about the syntax of the terminal here, I was not daring to try this out.
Installed F14 on my daughters HP Pavilion a131On. I rebooted multiple times. Do I need to activate something? I'm new to all of this but read through many threads to do as much as I could myself. I used the GUI to load the rt3070 drivers rather than rpm. The GUI is easier I think and should be equivalent. Please let me know what else I need to do. Fedora has been great on my Lenovo but this usb wlan stuff has been a pain.
