Fedora Networking :: Wireless Dead After Suspend

Jan 4, 2010

I have FC 12 install on a Compaq nx9600 that comes with a Broadcom BMC4306 wireless card. I'm not sure what my kernel is, but I have all of the updates for FC 12.Whenever my laptop resumes from Hibernation/Suspend my Enable Wireless check box in the Network Manager is greyed out and it will not come back till I reboot the computer. Is there any one out there that can help with this problem, as I do not want to disable my Hibernation/Suspend as I tend to forget to turn the laptop off for a few days on end, and this beast sucks a lot of power so it is a drain on my power bill.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Card Just Seems To Be Dead?

May 15, 2010

I am in need of some help trying to get my wireless working. I have a compaq presario f557us and my wireless card just seems to be dead. I got this laptop a few years ago and I tried installing ubuntu 7.04. The wireless part did not work out of the box (it took a lot of tinkering but finally got it working by using ndiswrapper). Later I did an OS reinstall but tried ubuntu 8.10 this time and the card was recognized with no problems, I just needed to use the proprietary drivers that ubuntu recommended. Finally I decided to give 10.04 a try. I don't know if doing an "apt-get upgrade" would've been fine but it's too late for that now; I did a fresh install and the wireless part seems dead.

I already tried installing ndiswrapper as I did before:
$ ndiswrapper -l
bcmwl5 : driver installed
later I tried the fwcutter way:
$ bcm43xx-fwcutter -i bcmwl5.sys
Sorry, the input file is either wrong or not supported by fwcutter. I can't find the MD5sum b89bcf0a25aeb3b47030ac83287f894a

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Chipset Dead ?

Jun 21, 2010

It looks like my laptop's wireless chipset (Broadcom) has/is dying. It won't work anymore on my Lucid install whereas it was working perfectly. The warrenty is long expired.

lspci brings up nothing about it anymore, it once did.

I booted my laptop into Win7 and it no longer finds it either. The manual slider switch on my HP Pavillion dv6000 is in the on position but the light is yellow.

It will very rarely work on Win7 now.

I can't afford a new laptop just now so it looks like I need an external wireless adaptor. I have (open busses) USB, cardbus/54, and a small firewire port. It does not pcmcia or other busses.

Any particular chipsets to look for or avoid?

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.1 - Network Wireless And Wired Dead

I just installed (dual-boot with Vista) Ubuntu 9.10 in my Toshiba Satellite M300. The problem is that (when using Ubuntu 9.10), its network is dead, both wireless and wired. The LEDs of the LAN port don't even blink. My wifi is not also detected. Both of my wifi device and LAN port are functional when using Vista.

Networking :: Wireless Worked On 3 Ubuntu Releases / Suddenly Dead

Feb 6, 2010

I'm not getting a response over on the Ubuntu WIreless Forum (which looks like it's getting slammed with questions), and weigh in on whether or not you believe I have a hardware failure on my hands? As I state in the post, I ran fine from the original installed version, 8.10, through 2 upgrades (to 9.04 and 9.10). Now none of them work (When the problems began I re-installed each of them in turn in order to test).

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Working After Suspend?

Jun 17, 2010

After upgrade from Hardy to Lucid, wireless card (Atheros Communications Inc. AR5212 ) was extremely slow and not really functional. I installed the madwifi driver following the instructions from Ubuntu Wiki and wireless works now. But, after suspend Network Manager nor Wicd could scan for any wirelss networks.

I found a workaround: in console, run "dhclient" and, magically, while the scan for Ip address is going on, suddenly also Network Manager starts connecting to my default access point!

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Fails After Reboot / Suspend

Dec 30, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS and have it set to dual-boot with windows 7 on my gateway tablet PC. Since installing, sometimes when I suspend or reboot, my wireless does not work. To be more clear - it is working fine, then I either suspend/reboot, then I come back and no wireless networks show up at all. I can still connect with ethernet cable though. I can solve it by rebooting multiple times (usually around 1-5 times) and then it (magically) seems to work again. I have also tried switching from network-manager to wicd, but the problem persists. With both network-manager and wicd, I've tried simulating a reboot for the wireless by using the command 'sudo modprobe -r iwl3945 && sudo modprobe iwl3945' (network-manager) and 'sudo /etc/init.d/wicd restart' (wicd), but these do not seem to work.

Fedora Networking :: Samba NMB - Dead After A Reboot

Feb 8, 2009

I've got a problem with samba and the nmb service. My system boots in Gnome

Ive set up Samba and it works ok, untill I reboot, then I have to go into services and restart Nmb service. the services bit says its dead after a reboot, its running on run levels 2345 I had a few hicups setting it up took me a couple of days to figure out the fire wall and SElinus were blocking things, so I ticked all the samba things - and it works a whole lot better.

I have to admit its a whole lot more polished than last time I tried linux - Red Hat 5. I like the Yum installer it takes a lot of guess work out for us novices, one thing I would like is to be able to edit and open things as root in Gnome or just log into it as root so that you can set things up, but I'll save that question for another day.

Ubuntu Networking :: No Wireless After Suspend On Lenovo Y510/Lucid/Intel 4965?

Aug 26, 2010

A few months back, my Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 stopped connecting to my wireless network after coming out of Suspend (it had worked fine previously). Wireless networking is simply disabled, and I have to reboot in order to get it back. I tried upgrading my OS from Intrepid all the way to Lucid, but the problem persisted. I also tried changing my 00sleep_module as suggested in this thread, but to no avail.

I've been happily using this lappie with LTS but wanted to try out 11.04. It looks great but wireless has been an issue:

1. No wireless during install
2. Had to manually blacklist the rt2860pci etc modules
3. Wireless still not resuming after suspend

05:00.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. RT2860
Subsystem: Ralink corp. Device 2790
Physical Slot: 0-2

The latter manual mod improved things slightly but still no cigar

Fedora Networking :: 15 Drops Network After Suspend

Jul 3, 2011

I just performed a clean install on a desktop (older IBEX model) that is connected directly to a Cicso router; this is a DSL service. I configured the Network during the install, and all went well, the installation script downloaded many software modules, I was able to set up my mail accounts, etc. Now, if I suspend this machine and log back on I notice that I am no longer connected to the Network. Clicking on the Network icon brings up the configuration pane, and the original network appears to be there, but I cannot figure out how to make it reconnect without rebooting.

Debian :: Wireless Broken By Suspend?

Jul 5, 2010

On my Sid laptop with iwlagn as the wireless driver, I use gnome with network manager. I lost all wireless capability when laptop failed to come out of suspend.
I have the power manager set up to suspend when the lid is closed. This morning when I opened the lid I got a blank screen with a blinking cursor. Without thinking, I forced shutdown with the power button. I know, don't say it. When I booted up I had no wireless at all. lspci doesn't recognize wlan0 lsmod shows iwlagn is still there I performed the following:

# modprobe -r iwlagn
# modprobe iwlagn

Now I have two drives on this laptop and Squeeze is on the other drive. When I boot into squeeze I have wireless activated.

Ubuntu Networking :: WUSB600N Dead After Kernel Upgrade

Feb 8, 2011

I hate kernel upgrades, at least on my laptop. Every time I upgrade, I have to recompile the driver for my Linksys WUSB600N adapter or it doesn't work. Usually, this is no problem, as I have the driver saved in a .tar file and all I have to do is 'make' and 'make install' and it works. BUT... This time, I tried that, and I get this:

doug@dh-laptop:~/LOCAL/Software/RT3572_Linux_STA_v2.4.0.2$ make
make -C tools

Fedora Networking :: Doesn't Work After Turned Off Wireless By Pressing A Wireless Button On Laptop?

Recently I have installed Fedora 14 on my other laptop. It's a dual boot with Windows 7. Everything worked perfectly fine, networking included, until my friend didn't accidently turned off the wireless by pressing a wireless button on the laptop. Since then the wireless on Fedora doesn't work. It does on Windows thought. I've tried restarting the laptop few times, but the wireless still doesn't want to work again.

I am having a little trouble connecting to my wireless network. Running Fedora 10 32 bit.I'm trying to connect to a hidden wireless network. I updated the firmware for my driver but apparantly the driver is still not working. Broadcom has a driver from their website for Linux 32 bit systems. Should I attempt to install it? I read a post where the driver is built into the system kernel. If so I would need to blacklist the one of the drivers. Correct?

Fedora :: Replacing Dead Disk In Lvm?

Jul 4, 2010

I know that this topic has been posted, responded to, and maybe even resolved, many times here, but I am stuck here with partially dead fileserver and need some pointers.

Problem: one disk drive that was part of a logical volume died. I have a replacement, but I can't get it into the LV and get the LV back up again.

pvcreate --uuid <uuid of dead drive> /dev/sdX1, where /dev/sdX1 is the newly created drive and its partition.
vgcfgrestore VolGroup
vgscan VolGroup
vgchange -ay VolGroup
e2fsck /dev/mapper/VolGroup-LogVol

but, e2fsck can't find a superblock. Apparently this drive is the first in the LV sequence, and it is not formatted as part of the LV.

So how to I get this new disk formatted into the LV without reformatting the entire LV and losing what data I still have?

(FWIW: this is on F11)

Fedora :: F13 - Nxserver - Service Is Dead

Sep 26, 2010


When I look the Services panel, nxserver is listed but shows as "Service is Dead". Does this mean anything specifically? Could it be related to firewall or security issues? Right above it a related program to nxserver, nxsensor, is listed and it's shown as operational.

Same thing here in my Services panel. Just getting into using NX...the display seems near Win RDP quality over the home lan. I'm now trying to get the sound to work. What is this 'dummy output' in my Sound preferences and where did my sound cards go? I have one onboard sc and a PCI card, neither recognized via the NX client session. Looking to get ESD going which might be the issue.
