I have been running F13 since it came out, with the wireless working fine since I got it working (using the RPM Fusion repository, broadcom-wl-220.127.116.11-1.fc13). Since I updated software (without reading what was to be updated), yesterday, I am unable to even find wireless networks, although I am, as you can see, able to access through eth0 It is not a hardware problem, as I can not only find them, but access them on Ubuntu 9.10 live disc. Below is my lspci

I have for 2 months Toshiba Satellite A 500-18Q (Core Duo, Windows7 pre-installed). I have just wifi internet in my home, with Windows7 it works perfectly and automatic. However, my fresh- installed Fedora12 cannot see any wifi at all. I my NetworkManager I can see a single line with "eth0" which seems to refer to a normal (cable) connection. How to activate wifi? Just add a new line with eth1 and Wireless connection? Or I need to install some drivers?
This morning I installed Fedora 14 on my laptop. During the setup, I was able to configure the wireless connection and use it to install additional software from the FreshRPMs and Livna repos. When the install was completed, I was surprised to find the wireless not working. When I click on the NetworkManager icon at the bottom right corner, I see "Wireless Networks" Under that it says "device not ready" and it is greyed out so it cannot be click on.

I am trying to get the Dell 1395 (Broadcom) wireless card to work on my PC and having a nightmare. I am certain the bulk of the reason is my inexperience with Linux but all the same it is causing me no end of problems.I have found the following sites which suggest ways to get it working
Unfortunately I can't get either method to work on my Fedora 11 installation. I don't mean that I complete the steps only to find it doesn't work, I mean I can't even complete the required steps because I appear to be doing something wrong or be missing a crucial command tool.When I try to run the broadcom method I get as far as the make (or make clean) commands.
The make clean results in:
KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd` clean make: gcc: Command not found make: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/18.104.22.168-105.2.23.fc11.i586'
If I try the other method I get into problems when I get to the ndiswrapper section as the install can't find ndiswrapper-common.
I am recently trying to get a steady wireless connection running. I am currently using the default settings/driver Fedora 13 is stocked with. As my internet browsing is somewhat up and down in load times, I decided to check in a video game which is generally a good test for me. haha I am harshly spiking and cannot find the source of my problem so my guess is a driver issue.

It is is seemingly right, my Windows 7 harddrive works just fine, this is just one last of the few issues I'm having from fully formatting my winblows HD to use as Linux storage.
I cannot find any native AR5008 Linux Drivers for my card and it has been a frustrating day. I guess I'm not cut to be a network analyst just yet.

I've been trying to get Security Spin up and running (after having tried unsuccessfully with knoppix STD). I need to be able to connect to my home network, or hell any wireless network.I've tried using iwconfig wlan0 as well as the options in the Network Configuration panel as well as other related panels. I'm able to change and set up profiles for the wireless card, but not to activate them. The button just isn't clickable.If it helps, I'm running Security Spin from a unetbootin usb drive. The wireless card is identified by the system as "Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection" .
I normally connect to a free wireless project, and did have a Windows box until yesterday when I installed Fedora 10. When I was using Windows, I was able to connect to the unsecured wireless network. Now on Fedora 10, the wireless card is working and is able to pick up signals but the signal strengths are markedly decreased and I am unable to see the network which I usually connected to.I really don't want to go back to Windows.
I am unable to access wireless network from my notebook. My configuration is Dell i5, 4GB RAM and 1397 W-LAN and I have F13. I can still access Internet through Ethernet using a LAN cable but the network monitor doesn't show list of Wireless networks which my room mate's windows 7 machine easily detects. If anyone needs more info please provide me the steps to perform to find that out
I can not install a driver for device EDUP WU2070. I have a disk with a driver for linux general. I don't know how to compile a makefile. My OS 11.3v doesn't see a device. But when I run in Live CD mode all drivers install automatically and my WI-FI device work properly.
I know some wireless card can work in Master Mode but it seems use madwifi driver. I know madwifi doesn't support usb dongles find a usb wireless card which can work as AP under Ubuntu. I have check this list [URL] I am not sure if ar9170usb.ko and its device support Master MOde.

I'm new to Ubuntu. Today, I took my old Compaq Presario V3010US and gave it life with Ubuntu 10.04. The hard drive was erased and replaced with the Linux OS stuff. Ubuntu recognizes most of the hardware except my Broadcom wireless card. I find this to be a pain because i'm a newbie to linux stuff. Anyway, can anyone help me fix this? I thank you for your time reading this.
Any opinions on which of the PCMCIA wireless cards work the best out of the box? I currently have a USB wireless adapter but want to get rid of it and use my PCI slot on the laptop. I am currently running lucid. I would rather not have to mess around with NDISWRAPPER again, something that has a native linux driver would be great.
I have been trying to find a wireless card that will readily work with Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop. Preferably an +802.11 N with an indoor range of between 300 to 400 ft. with possibly two antennas. Am finding many that say linux on the box but find that it ain't so. Also most times with no instructions or very convoluted process that results in errors.
I'm trying to find a driver for my wireless card (Atheros AR928X) and I think it's ath9k what I need. As far as I know there isn't a linux driver for it, so I installed ndiswrapper to use a windows driver instead. The problem is that when I type modprobe ndiswrapper I get "bash: modprobe: command not found" (even as root). I know I'm missing something about modprobe, but I can't find any help on google. Anyway, I installed ndisgtk next, because I thought it would be easier, but when I go to System> Administration> Windows Wireless Drivers I get a message "Unknown error".Do you have any ideas on how I'll make ndiswrapper work?
just switched from Windows Vista to Ubuntu 10.10 on my Toshiba laptop and I'm loving it, except for some wireless connection problems. About 70% of the time, my computer is unable to find any wireless signals whatsoever, despite being right next to the router. When it does find the signal it connects fine and runs great, but most of the time it doesn't show any signals at all. I can't find any pattern to when it does or doesn't find the signal. My result for the "sudo lshw -C network"
installing the PCI wireless card drivers in CentOS linux. I have "Sabrent PCI-G802 PCI Wireless Card - 54Mbps, 802.11g". I tried looking in google and tried multiple ways to install the driver but failed , I have followed the instructions given in the link i.e. performed the following steps .....
1.# tar xvzf package.tar.gz (or tar xvjf package.tar.bz2) 2.# cd package 3.# ./configure 4.# make 5.# make install
I have the original cd (this cd has linux drivers also) which came with the PCI card but its not a plug and play cd like the MS windows, the cd drive is not reading the disk (But i can open it in windows 7). I copied the installation files from the cd to usb drive on my windows 7 PC and copied them on to the CentOS /home/user directory and performed the above mentioned steps. I was successful in getting till the second step. when i did the step 3 the system is asking some thing about
I have installed Ubuntu for netbooks on my four year old laptop and of course the wifi card is unable to search for wireless networks when I'm booted into Ubuntu. I do have the driver software on a recovery disk. Would installing it in Ubuntu fix my problems?
I am trying to get the wireless working on a fresh install of F13 on my HP probook 6450b. The wireless button above my keyboard is amber, when I press it i see the following in /var/log/messages :Quote:ep 29 11:32:43 localhost kernel: atkbd serio0: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0xf8 on isa0060/serio0).Sep 29 11:32:43 localhost kernel: atkbd serio0: Use 'setkeycodes e078 <keycode>' to make it
I just switched from Ubuntu to Fedora 13 because I was unable to get Ubuntu to connect to wireless networks. I tried everything suggested in help and forums, and kept getting "Bad Password" with WICD and Network Manager. Now, with Fedora...I still can't connect.
Problem #1: The guide says to "...make sure that the relevant wireless interface (usually eth0 or eth1) is controlled by NetworkManager," and that I do this via: System>Administration>Network
However, there is no Network option under System>Administration.
Problem #2: I open Network Manager, which displays a list of networks. I click on mine, configure it with WPA and the right password, and it fails to connect: "The network connection has been disconnected."
I have a Toshiba Satellite L455D-S5976. Brand new. I made a partition and made it dual boot with windows seven and fedora with the newest version from the site. It won't recognize the wireless card. I'm assuming it needs drivers but I don't know where to find drivers so it will recognize.
The wireless does work on the windows side so I know it's not a problem with the wireless card.

I just loaded the boot-able cd, and I do not have enough knowledge with Linux bases OS's to figure out how to enable the wireless card. ifconfig produces an eth0 and a lo, when I try ifup wlan0, it says: configuration for wlan0 not found. I have looked at all the forums notes and cannot find anything that seams like it is the same problem.
I am trying to get a netgear wireless usb card to work correctly. I have installed ndiswrapper and gotten the correct drivers installed. The device does show up with lsusb. I can't seem to figure out how to get the wireless card to show up in gnome to start using it.
Update: the ndiswrapper module does load but when i run ndiswrapper -l it just shows the driver installed but, it is not showing my wireless usb card (0846:9020).
I have Lucent Technologies Orinoco Silver 11 Mbps PCMCIA wifi card. It worked perfectly in Fedora 10, but after updating to Fedora 11 it stopped finding any wireless networks. The updating were done with automatic updating utility. The card works perfectly in Windows, I tested it today.
My laptop is HP nx6110 if that matters.
Here is the situation:
When I plug-out the card, the Network Manager disables wireless networking as it should. When I plug-in the card, wireless networking is enabled, so the system seems to recognize the card in some way.
If I try to connect to "Hidden wireless network" (because there isn't any wireless networks listed in the Network Manager) system tries to connect for a couple of minutes, and then asks wireless settings again. Orinoco card's lights DOESN'T blink normally when connecting to the network (one light should blink rapidly and one should light continuously, but both are blinking rarely or doesn't blink at all).
In System->Administration->Network in tab Hardware (hope those names are correct, I use Finnish version of Fedora...) is:
It seems that the card is detected right.
Here is what I have done to get the problem solved: In System->Administration->Network I have tried to connect to the wireless network manually (disabling the Network Manager). I can't get the connection. It gives me random error messages, sometimes "Check the cable" or something like that, sometimes just timeouts IP determination.
I have tried to connect different wireless networks, no connection. All tested networks worked with another computer.
No matter if I reboot or service network restart or plug-out plug-in the card... the problem still appears.
Tried to find (and reinstall) drivers:
No Matches found
Here is the output of lspci. The output is the same if the wifi card is connected or not.
