So, after doing a 'yum update', I minimized the terminal and completely forgot about it - so I accidentally went ahead and suspended my laptop before it had finished. I resumed my laptop and noticed that yum hadn't finished 'cleaning up' the packages. Nevertheless, yum continued and the process finished. After an hour or so use of the internet (wirelessly), all of a sudden the wireless network disconnected, and NetworkManager crashed. I rebooted my computer only to find that NetworkManager now says that my 'firmware is missing' for my wireless card.
I'm having problems with my wireless card. The network manager won't allow me to turn it on. It is working in windows and in ubuntu, but I can't get it to turn on under fedora. I'm using a Lenovo B570 laptop and it uses the Centrino Wireless-N 1000 for wireless.
I am running Fedora 14 with KDE on my IBM T60p Thinkpad laptop. The wireless network adapter is Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG. The wireless network uses WPA2 with AES encryption.
Until yesterday my wireless worked fine. I originally installed wlassistant and it enabled my Network Manager to work with WPA2. My XP on the same machine still works on wireless without any issues, so both the adapter hardware and the router are eliminated as sources of the problem.
Yesterday I booted up my Linux and noticed there were 20+ security updates and I installed them all. It asked me to logoff and log back in. I did, and since then my wireless is dead as a doorknob. When the wireless adapter initializes it prompts me for the WPA2 password, however the password is visible in the password field. I click to accept it but it cant connect. Network manager just sits there waiting for authentication and nothing happens. The wpa_supplicant service is disabled, however I honestly cant remember if it was enabled before, considering that I use wlassistant. If I enable it, still nothing happens.
Anyway, thinking that the security updates possibly broke wlassistant, I uninstalled it and installed the latest version. The old version was 12, the new one is 13. It makes no difference though.I always use my laptop on wireless, therefore I am dead in the water.
Its really frustrating how something always breaks on this OS. It resembles a leaky boat that always has at least one hole. By the time I plug it another one appears, so I spend 90% of my Linux time fixing problems and have the remaining 10% for work and play. Windows and Mac work out of the box and apparently thats what 99% of users want, hence the 1% market share
Anyway, sorry about this, however losing my network connectivity from installing security updates really ticked me off. Its pretty unacceptable. Anyone has any ideas which recent fixes may be to blame? I am sure it didnt only happen to me.
I have been running FC8 on this IBM T23 with a D-Link wireless adapter. Using MadWifi this has worked fine with Network Manager disabled. But now I have nuked that installation and replaced it with FC10. Network Manager is nice, and I would like to use it. And it kind-of works. Network Manager recognizes my router and all my neighbor's routers, but I can't connect.
I own an ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC. It has an Atheros Communication, Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. 03:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01) 03:00.0 0280: 168c:002b (rev 01) I cannot see any SSIDs including my home Verizon FiOS 802.11 G WPA2-AES-TKIP encrypted network. I went to Starbucks to try to connect to their free Wi-Fi and I could not make a connection. How do I solve this problem so that I can connect to a SSID of my choice and make a wireless connection while using GNOME 3?
I am a Windows refugee who discovered Ubuntu as a way to save my files from my virus-ravaged computer. Had no installation discs for Windows, so when I had to wipe my hard drive and start over, I decided to give Ubuntu a try. I've had mixed success, but that's another post...
Right now, the problem is that I installed 10.10 two weeks ago and was able to connect to the Internet with no problems - until yesterday. Suddenly, our wireless network (the only one in the vicinity) does not come up as available in Network Manager. In fact, the entire wireless option disappeared. I know there are many posts and threads on here about this, but weeding through them trying to find an answer is more frustrating than actually dealing with the problem. I know the router works because I can post on this forum from the Macbook. I really like Ubuntu and would like to keep using it, but not being able to connect to the Internet now on top of the other issues I've had is making me doubt I want to continue down this Linux road.
P.S. When I attempted an analysis through System Testing, it said something about there being no proprietary drivers?
I happened to Fedora 13 that the network manager does not indicate any wifi network and I had to turn off the notebook for a while and then recover, this also happened to me 2 or 3 times on ubuntu 10.04 too. my card is an Atheros AR5007EG.
I have 10.04 installed on my HP MiniNote Netbook. If I plug it into the the ethernet directly, all is well, but if I only use the wireless, i get no DNS servers. And one of my wireless networks is on the same router as the wired connection. Also, wireless works just perfectly on my MacBook Air. So, I do not think it is the router. So why am I not getting DNS addresses? How would I set them manually? I can't figure out how to start network manager.
I want to set up a static IP on my laptop that connects via wireless to my home network. I have 11.04 installed on my laptop. When I try to use the manual IPv4 setting in the network manager the save option gets greyed out. I tried to edit the /etc/network/interfaces file but all the examples I could find on the net refer to eth0. I tried replacing this with wlan0 but this did not work. I tried installing wicd but I kept getting "Bad Password" errors even though I know the password is correct. A number of people recommended uninstalling network manager to get wicd to work but many other posts said that uninstalling network manager didn't help so I didn't want to go ahead and uninstall unnecessarily. Besides I figure if Ubuntu is distributed with network manager there must be a reason for having it. So what do I do to get a static IP address for the client on a wireless connection?
1. I went to network manager and selected "Connection Information" On the information window I saw the following:
IPv4 IP Address: 192.168.1.6 (This is the item I wanted to change and make static) Broadcast Address: 192.168.1.255 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
2. I went to network manager and selected "Edit Connections" 3. I selected the wireless tab and then the wireless network I wanted to edit 4. I clicked on the edit button and then I clicked on the IPv4 settings tab. 5. I changed method from Automatic (DHCP) to Manual
Writing this from a 9.10 LiveCD, so I know that my hardware is working fine.My system is running 10.10 normally. Last night, the update manager popped up, as it frequently does, and said I had some packages that could be updated. So I let it update after which it said I needed to reboot. So I did, and now it doesn't recognize my network connection, and even the blinky lights on the port itself stay dark. don't know a lot about networking or stuff under the hood, but I can work a console and/or text editor if someone can tell me where to look and what to type.My hardware is (from "lspci | grep -i eth"):02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 03)The packages that have a modified date of last night are:
To start off I have a Rosewill rnx-n2x wireless adapter and a Dlink 4500 router. The problem is, the wireless network manager detects every wireless router in the neighborhood, except mine. I see this persons, and this persons, but no "My router Not yours". I even tried doing the hidden network setup and still nothing.
I have read that the rnx n2x isnt supported by linux, although I've seen solutions to make it work (which didn't work, mkdir command kept getting denied during make) link to what I'm talking about: [URL]. What I don't get though, is that if the rnx n2x isnt supported by linux, wouldn't I not be getting my neighbors connections to begin with?
I'm not sure if I have two seperate issues or one inter-related issue. The Network Manager applet wasn't appearing in the tray, found out it wasn't installed. Installed, still didn't appear. Tried installing WiCd, WiCd did appear but couldn't find any networks. I had installed restricted drivers previous, decided it was worth another look. Found that Broadcom STA Wireless Driver wasn't installed. Tried to install, it said it couldn't and said I should review the var/log/jockey which is....excessively long.
I'm trying to search for more wireless networks but i cannot find a way to make network manager search for more wireless networks. It only displays 2 wireless networks and none of them is mine, even though I've got my wireless router at less than 1 meter from my PC.
A couple of weeks ago my laptop's wifi started acting up, to the point that it didn't function. When I click the nwManager icon to being up a list of available networks, it is empty. If I try to create a new network, with the credentials of my modem, it appears to work, and asks for the password. After I enter the password, it seems to work for about 30 seconds (much longer than normal) but then it prompts me again for the password. This cycle continues indefinitely.
I'm running Karmic on a Dell i1525. how to find out what wireless card I have.
I've installed ubuntu 10.04 on a hp mini 110. I've used netbook remix on this same computer and had no problems with a wireless connection. In this case, network manager shows wireless disabled. I have installed the Broadcom B43 Wireless drive from Adminstration->Hardware drivers. No help! ifconfig does not show eth1 and lspci tells me that the Broadcom BCM4312 Network controller is present.
I deleted all APs in my Wireless Section of network manager. After that, the whole network manager icon disappeared. I added the icon back on the panel, but I don't think its the right one. It doesn't do the two green cicles thing when I connect my ethernet wire in. It also doesn't show any wireless AP when I left click on the icon. It doesn't even have an X mark on the bottom left of the icon when no network is detected
I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 (both 64-bit) and my USB WiFi adapter which previously worked fine stopped working. The adapter is a Hama USB stick based on the Ralink rt73 chipset. I've tried using the Ralink drivers that come with 10.04 (both rt2800usb and rt73usb) but neither work. When I use rt2800usb, the adapter is recognized as interface wlan0, however I can't see any wireless networks. When I use rt73usb (and blacklist rt2800usb to avoid conflicts) I no longer have a wlan0 interface and there is no wireless adapter shown in the network manager. I've pasted in the results of lsmod, lsusb, and ifconfig -a (with MAC addresses removed) below.
I use network Manager to connect to wireless broadband on Fedora 12.Are there any tools that can provide me logs about connection times, bandwidth monitoring etc.Basically, I need logs like what kppp provides with accounting.
I can use kppp to connect and get the logs I need but I want to connect to the network as soon as I plug it in - Only Network Manager allows this.
i wanted to upgrade my ubuntu system to meerkat beta via update manager like i upgraded it the last 5+ times.
a bug showed up that i can recall from updating files previously: some software installtions via update manager triggered the programm nicotine+ (i think is was something like man-lib or man-db that, when called by the installtion programm, would trigger nicotine too). since i can close that nicotine+-window and the installation process isnt bothered any further i didnt mind.
now with this upgrade, i had to close nicotine+ around 5 times since it got triggered together with some of the files that got updated/installed in this upgrade.
and then what happened: GError something about an "unrecognized image file", it concerned a py file that was named "nicotine"...
so i waited for 10 mins and figured out that the update process had stopped. i couldnt resist and logged out, wanting to delete nicotine from my system and to reinitialize the upgrade. well, nothing works since then, grub only lets me choose different kernels which didnt help much as there was no way to startx.
my question is:
how can i reset this upgrade mess or bring this pending upgrade to an end? can i do an upgrade via network, based on the emergency shell that comes up in some kernel-recoverymodes? or should i burn a livecd, boot it and then do what? repair? try another upgrade? delete nicotine?
having 'consumed' ubuntu for years now i still wouldnt know what else to do then posting here.
Since an upgrade from 10.10 to 11.04, all wireless devices for me in the plasma network manager applet are not functioning properly on a Dell Latitude E4310. Specific problem: No wireless networks appear in the plasma network manager applet. Manually-configured networks do not connect. A separate CDMA card appears, but cannot establish a connection. The CDMA card does function on 10.10 machines, and formerly worked on this machine. The only wireless 'network' that appears in the plasma network manager widget is 'hidden network'. Manually adding a network and checking "Connect Automatically" does nothing. I attempted a fresh install after the upgrade itself failed the work. There are no networks to click on, and selecting the device itself merely shows the status page.

Neither the CDMA card nor any wireless networks are working. If I take the exact same machine and boot from a disk with 10.10, both work.
I am running Ubuntu 9.04 as a partition with windows 7 on a acer aspire 5742, I would like to connect to the internet in Ubuntu, wirelessly, but I am unable to turn my wireless on in Ubuntu, and network manager says "no network connections available". I have the following network adapters:
I installed Natty on a second partition yesterday to try it out, but i can't get wireless to work. Hardwire connection works fine, so does connecting wirelessly to my router. However, i cannot browse the internet or update. After rebooting a couple of times i was surprised to see internet working, but only for about half an hour. Then it stopped working again. My card is a Intel PRO/Wireless 4965AGN and i'm using the 64 bit version of 11.04. So my question is if anyone has had the same kind of problem or maybe knows a fix?
I'm really disappointed cause Ubuntu worked out of the box for me since Hardy.
I have been using linux for a long time now, but just recently i had to use a wireless network card with it. i was using 10.10 when i noticed that when i had my Belking f5D7050 usb adaptor the computer would load the welcome screen of ubuntu but stuck there doing nothing. so i had to restart it, unplug it and when ubuntu starts with out the adaptor i plug it back in. That way SOMETIMES it works and others doesnt, some times it just crashed when i plug in the adaptor. i decided to wait for 11.4 in case this was fixed on the new version.
Alas! i just switched to 11.4 today, and i got the same problem.
Everything else seems to be working all right with it, as long as it starts working i have no complain about it it just starts to be annoying that i have to force the pc to shut down and then restart it. from lsusb i get this:
Code: Bus 001 Device 009: ID 050d:705c Belkin Components F5D7050 Wireless G Adapter v4000 [Zydas ZD1211B]
I managed to get my Linksys AE1000 USB wireless adapter to work on Unbuntu 10.04 LTS.but recently I updated the kernel to 2.6.32-26 and when i rebooted I logged on to see my wireless connection was not working.even worse, I can't fn the links i had that showed me how to install it in the first place, its about the fact that the new kernel uses a different usb setup(probably incorrect, let me know it its incorrect). its an issue that the hacked driver isnt compatible with the new kernel release, how can i revert to the older version that it did work on? i'm using a RALinkTech driver [URL]
I updated my FC10 just a day back. The problem is that Netwrok Manager has disappeared. And in spite of re-installing it, it doesn't appear on the panel when i enter 'NetworkManager' as root in the terminal.I have a USB modem right now. Update was made through a broadband connection. Ethernet works perfectly well but this USB modem of mine doesn't work at all. And I have to use USB not Ethernet.
I have got DHCP issues with Network Manager. Whenever I try to connect using static IP it works, but when I use use Netowork Manager with DHCP, it seems to try to connect and soon says "Network Disconnected"..I've managed to connect to wlan and eth using network, so there shouldn't be any hardware/driver issue.
Our corporate wireless network uses continuously changing passwords with RSA tokens.So every time we need to connect to the wireless we need to enter a new password off the RSA token. For extra fun using the wrong password a couple of times in a row causes the users account to be locked.Network manager automatically stores and reuses the password, with the net result that it is constant getting my account locked.Is there some way to prevent it from storing my password for that network?
I recently installed OpenSUSE 11.2 and everything works fine except wi-fi card, of course. The problem is that after installation the system recognized the card (is was listed in network devices in Yast) but I was unable to enable it through network-manager applet. Though the device could make scanning through terminal (found article in docs but didn't fully understand wpa_gui). Then i was stupid enough to delete the device from Yast list to try to reinstall it. So the problem is that i simply can't do this cause i see no way to re-detect. That is the goal is to at least turn back to post-install system state and try to enable wifi card 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?
