Fedora Networking :: Wireless Network Card Being Detected But Not Being Allowed To Activate?
Mar 7, 2009
I have downloaded and installed Fedora 10.Now I am setting up the network and in the 'network configuration' it finds the wireless device (ralink) in the 'hardware' section of the configuration - I set this to eth0 (it originally set itself to wan0 and I still had the same problems, now it doesn't give me the option to put it back to wan0).Now I goto the devices tab and try to set up the device with eth0 - which it seems to find.But when I goto activate the device it tells me that eth0 cannot be found
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" .
abhishek:/ # sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan lo Interface doesn't support scanning. eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning. wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down
4 ) what you have tried to rectify the problem.
Tried to install all the patches.
5 ) any trouble-shooting guide you have tried to follow. - The previous two stickies
6 ) openSUSE version 11.3
7 ) type /sbin/lspci -v" in a terminal; copy and paste the section that identifies your wireless card and it's chipset. 07:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

Broadcom sta driver is installed and listed in Hardware Drivers but will no activate.It did activate and run perfectly when booting from USB FLASH DRIVE running UNR on HP MINI it has a external networkcard power off switch on the front of it if that matters.
Wireless card detected but cannot connect to a wireless network
I have install it suse 11, and everything went well until the wireless thing is not working, my card is Broadcom BCM4318, I see my card on the network settings but I cannot configure the card, and also I cannot connect to a wireless network, can someone tell me what to do here, I am loosing my patient....
I just recently installed CentOS 5.3 and to make a long story short I found the entry for my wireless card under the network settings but when attempting to activate the card the system locks up. I have to reboot at that point as nothing responds (keyboard, mouse, etc..).
Running the command /sbin/lspci -v reveals the following about the wireless card:
I just installed Linux Mint 9 as a dual boot install with Win XP. Trying to activate wireless network card driver and video driver. Pops up: "You are not authorized to perform this action".How do I get authorized?
Now every time I boot Win XP, the Internet Explorer menu bar is all blacked out and goofy. If I log out and back in it corrects itself. If I reboot it's blacked out again. Re-installed IE8. Still blacks out.Also Firefox in Win XP crashes expectantly. It has NEVER crashed on me previously.
I added to my machine PC running debian and others, ubuntu, pc wireless card:,the same card I used it on other machine, it ran nice.On the other machine i have Ethernet Controller instead of Class ffff.I installed the divers firmware-ralink and other realtek and network-manager, but nothing.on other machine, that was enough to run it correctly.and ifconfig dosn't give wlan0,iwconfig did't give characteristic of wlan0.does this mean that the bios didn't recognize it as a network card
I have just upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 and now my wireless card isn't being detected as far as I know. It was working perfectly in the previous version. At the moment I've physically put an ethernet cable straight to the router.
running 9.10 server, have SSH access through LAN, but I'd like to move box out of my neighbor's (shared internet & the router's in his place) and into my own space. Would have done so already, but I can't get the wireless working. Details below:lshw -C network gives:
I have bought a new laptop with W7 installed. And I installed dual boot with Ubuntu 9.10 on it.I tried to connect my laptop to Internet by Ethernet port. It works with W7, but Ubuntu doesn't detect my Network card .After some research on Internet, I suppose that it's a problem of drivers for this card.Here some parameters I could get :
>ifconfig : lo Link encap:Boucle locale inet adr:127.0.0.1 Masque:255.0.0.0
I'm in serious need of some help. The network adapter on the motherboard of my main machine apparently failed about noon today. This machine serves as the firewall and router for my home office LAN, and so it has two network adapters, the second being a PCI card installed in the only PCI slot of the mobo. The mobo's adapter served the WAN while the PCI card serves the LAN.Since the mobo has only one PCI slot, none of the other PCI cards I have on hand could be used. Instead, I pulled an unused PCI-e dialup modem card from the machine, and bought a PCI express gigabit card to put in its place.
The problem is that the machine (running Hardy 8.04.4 LTS) does not recognize the new card at all. Running lspci shows only the old PCI card that serves the LAN. Similarly, running "sudo lshw" shows only the old PCI card together with a virtual adapter that's part of my VirtualBox installation on that system.I then dual-booted into Vista Home and attempted to install the new card there, using the CD that came with it. Vista detected the card and asked for the disk, but then was unable to find any drivers on the disk!The box says the card is from Star Tech, and the instruction sheet says its model is ST1000SPEX.If anyone can point me to the correct module to add to the startup list and/or remove from the blacklist, that may get me going again.
I know that most people are using F12 and F13 but I just installed F10 on one of my machines. The Kernel is 18.104.22.168-117.fc10.i686 and the GUI is Gnome 2.24.1.I have a Trendnet wireless card already installed in the machine from when it ran XP which is in the tew-421pc/tew-423pi family. Is there a device manager/hardware installer that I can use to set up the wireless card or does anyone know of a driver install program for this card?
I have a Realtek gigabit onboard ethernet (RTL-8110SC/8169SC)It was working in 9.10.After upgrading to 10.04, the connection dropped to 10MB. Now, lspci -v shows the card, but Ubuntu no longer recognizes eth0!I have no connection on the machine. I've been digging around the forums, but can't seem to find what I need.
I started on ubuntu 8.10 and my wireless card has always worked,Since i did a fresh install of ubuntu 10.04 it still seems to work to a point.I can see networks, click them and use a password to connect but it never seems to carry on, I typed the password correctly and after a minute it asks for it again.I have read a post about problems other people are having and that i need to install a different program.But i cant install another program if there is no wireless as apt-get doesn't work without internet connection.So... I need to download something that will fix it (possible update if one has been released) to xp (partition) then access xp partition from ubuntu and install it.
I have an issue with wireless connectivity on my laptop. Its a HP dm3 and the intel network adapter is supported as I can scan and detect wireless access points.However, when I attempt to connect to my home network, it fails and this is probably a result of two things: The BSSID is missing and/or the DHCP client ID is missing.I am running Kubuntu 10.10 32 bit
I am running the latest version of arch linux on a Dell Latitude D420. So far everything has worked perfectly except the wireless. It seems that Arch does not even detect the wireless because ifconfig -a only gives me the loopback and eth0. I installed ndiswrapper as well as the drivers. lsmod | grep ndiswrapper shows that ndiswrapper is being loaded on boot. I tried to install the iwp3945 drivers, but they have become obsolete so pacman was unable to find them. I also tried installing the iwl3945 drivers as explained here [URL] but still no luck.
I searched this forum for posts similar to the problem I am having and i found a few, but I did not understand the solution (unexperienced user here) so I thought i would ask.I recently installed fedora 13 on my laptop and everything appears to be detected, with the exception to my wireless card (a broadcom 43225 card).I checked the list of drivers that came with installation and i could not find one for this particular card. is there any way for me to get a driver that would work with it (maybe a more general driver, just something to make it possible to connect over the internet) Or is it
I have a Netgear WG511GE PCMCIA card, and a driver from the original installation disk. I used an ndiswrapper-utils gui called ndisgtk to install the driver. I then do the following to verify an installation:
Unfortunately, when I put the PCMCIA card in, nothing happens. On Windows, a green light flashes even if the card is not connected to any network. At first I thought this might be a hardware issue, so I did #lspci and got:
Lo and behold, when I put a different unbranded Wireless PC Card in it works. I'm no expert in Networks, but to me this suggests a driver problem (i.e. the card is physically detected it just won't work). However, the correct driver was installed with ndisgtk and this was verified with #ndiswrapper -l, hence the confusion.
I'd be grateful if anyone else has had this problem/knows of this problem and is willing to share the solution with me/point me in the right direction. So far, Google has returned a few posts from a few years ago talking about patching kernels and manually building files etc (just before Prism54 became integrated into the Linux kernel).
My network cards were fine under Wubi Lynx. I decided to upgrade to Ubuntu Studio Lynx on its own partition, and the DVD install routine failed to detect the network card. Where do I go from here?***1 ) Machine Brand and Model (PC/Laptop):Acer 1410 (dual amd64 netbook, about a year old)***2) Network Interfaces

Been using Ubuntu for 1 yr now on my Dell Dimension 8250 but a newbie with my Averatec AV3270-EH1 laptop circa 2005. Ubuntu 10.04 does not detect the Integrated WLAN card/adapter. I've looked at all the forums/posts but none had the issue I have. When I type lspci into the terminal i get this back:

And when I type in iwconfig:
lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions.
I have Dell 1537 laptop having Intel 5100 wireless card. It is not supported by Fedora 9. I have tried downloading the driver iwlwifi-5000-ucode-22.214.171.124.tgz from URL...Downloads and copied it to folder /lib/firmware and rebooted the machine. But still it is not detected by the system. Is there any solution to this problem .
I am using a Compaq presario laptop. I installed Ubuntu 11.04 (32 bit) within windows 7.Initially my WiFi was running fine in Ubuntu without me doing anything. Now suddenly Ubuntu has stopped showing any of the WiFi networks. I have not done any changes in Ubuntu.When i booted to my Win 7, it was able to detect the network. I uninstalled and reinstalled Ubuntu, with no avail. But Ubuntu is able to detect the wired network when connected. I am at a loss.
I am using a Toshiba Satellite M200. Sometimes after a wakeup ubuntu does not detect any wireless networks. This does not happen all the time only some times but, when I restart my computer the wireless networks are detected.
