Fedora Networking :: Cannot Get Intel 4965agn Wireless Nic 13 X64 To Pick Up
Jun 1, 2010
Have been running Fed 11 on this laptop (dual booting with windows) for some time with no issue's. Removed 11 and installed 13. I now cannot get my wireless adaptor to pick up. Drivers are loaded and sees the card in lspci, here is some log outs I have made:-
I just installed Fedora 15 yesterday and can't get wi-fi to work. When I click 'on' on the Wireless label, it goes back to 'off' immediately. When I open the Network Settings menu and disable Airplane mode, the Wireless connection goes on and then off immediately. I took a look at /var/log/messages and it shows this:
I have lenovo thinkpad, T61 with Intel 4965AGN wireless card. It is a N card, it works under N mode in windwos, but not in Ubuntu (10.10). I installed ndiswrapper and got the windows xp drivers for this card. the issue is that i got an error when installing the drivers and since then I cannot use wireless.
The error i got is: Code: Module could not be loaded. Error was: FATAL: Could not read '/lib/modules/2.6.35-24-generic/kernel/ubuntu/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko': No such file or director I unistalled the driver, but now under network connections no wireless connections appear, nothing. I cannot use wirless anymore.
I'm trying to set up ubuntu on my netbook, the brand and make is obscure, essentially, this is a no-name brandless build from china, but a pretty decent lappy. Atom N270 Intel 945GSE based. initially it was equipped with a 3DSP wifi/bluetooth mPCIe combo card, which is proprietary and didn't work on ubuntu (didn't even show up as a device), so I got an intel 4965agn based on compatibility list somewhere in the wiki.
The problem I have is that I see networks, but can't connect at home or at work or anywhere, it just hangs in the connecting status and then throws the authentication popup at me again (pw is all correct). I tried looking around at similar problems, some have wpa_supplicant related issues, but doesn't seem to be the same as mine.
I tried creating an unsecured network using my macbook's airport, and same thing happened with ubuntu... hangs in connecting status then drops, so it doesn't seem to be WPA. I don't have the device on me to do all the iflist iwlist checks for you, but if you could give me some clues, I'll post back when I get home.
I have recently installed Fedora 13 on my laptop, an Acer Aspire One D150. The laptop has an Intel 4965agn wifi card which worked flawlessly under Fedora 12. Now however it keeps disconnecting every 10 minutes, even if I browse the web. On top of this, it also becomes very hot, so hot that you can feel it through the plastic case.
I'm using a notebook with Intel 4965AGN and connecting to a Linksys WRT320N router. I can connect most of the time but after a while (sometimes a few minutes, sometimes a few hours) I lose connection. The notification icon would not change. I would only find out when I browse or click on a link and it would just get stuck at "Looking for <url>..." My wife's notebook would still be connected to the router even after mine has mysteriously disconnected. But she uses another os.
The symptom is that NetworkManager repeatedly ask for password to connect to my AP.My AP is secured with WPA-PKI. The problem even happens with Fedora 11 live cd if I'm not quickly configure wireless connection using NetworkManager right after Fedora completes booting up. It means if I promptly configure wireless connection, i'm still able to access Internet. Same thing happens for the first boot of Fedora from hdd. For the second boot or when I dont quickly configure wireless connection when system finished booting up, NetworkManger repeatedly asks for password for AP.
I did try several approaches posted in this forum but problem still persisted. Some of approaches I tried are:
For the past few months I've been using Ultimate Edition 2.3 on my laptop. Various problems I encountered convinced me to switch. I installed Ubuntu 9.10 today and after the install I can't pick up my wireless router on the list of available networks. I'm able to pick up every other one on my block, just not my own. My server and my roommates laptop can pick it up and are connected to it, the problem seems to be exclusive to this laptop with the fresh install on it.I tried the 'connect to hidden network' option and it doesn't connect, it just keeps asking for the psk
I can't pick up any wireless signals while running Ubuntu 10.04, but while running Windows 7, I pick them up. I have the feeling it's because of a missing driver, could anyone help me solve this issue?
I just loaded 10.10 onto a stock hp pavalion zt3000 and everything is running fine except it won't detect my college's wifi network. It picks up everything else and runs without a hitch. (I'm actually on my work's wireless network atm) The network is not hidden and doesn't have any encryption. The wireless is on and has even detected other networks when it doesn't see the school's. I searched but couldn't find much on this specific problem but Im guessing/hoping its something simple here's the hardware: Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter (rev 04)
I recently purchased a WNR3500L wireless router and it works great with Windows. However, when I boot up Ubuntu 11.04, it cannot find other wireless networks in the area. Despite this, my internet connection speed to my computer remains unaffected...the only issue is that it cannot pick up other networks.
From searching on Google and on these forums, I've learned that most routers don't work "out of the box" with Ubuntu...NDISWrapper and additional drivers must be installed in order to make them work to their full potential. But alas, I am a super-newb...I don't know what to do from here on to get my Netgear WNR3500L router to pick up other wireless signals.
I just installed Fedora 13 on my desktop but I can't get it to pick up the wireless network in the house.The desktop has a Linksys AE1000 that can feed off of the wireless router in another room when I boot up in Windows.
Are Intel wireless cards compatible with non-intel-based laptops? In my case I wish to upgrade the current Atheros-based mini pci express wifi card with the Intel 4965agn. It is an Asus 4520 with an AMD Athlon X2 processor and nvidia nForce chipset.
how to set up wireless networks. The technical language is foreign to me. My notebook maybe described as follows:
Make and Model: SONY VAIO FW490 Processor: Intel� Core™ 2 Duo Processor P8700 (2.53GHz) RAM: 4GB DDR2-SDRAM Graphics card: ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD4650 graphics card with 512MB vRAM.
It came pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Premium but now I have Fedora 11 (w/ Gnome) as the only OS. The router that I am using with an Ethernet cable connected to my laptop is a Netgear 54Mbps Wireless Router WGR614 v7 connected to a Motorola Surfboard Cable Modem. Both worked right out of the box and now I have wired Internet access. RCN is my ISP. I would like to avoid using the Ethernet cable connecting my laptop to the router.
This is what I have done so far:
1. Gone to System>Administration>Network
2. Clicked "New" then chose "Wireless connection" from the list
3. Chose Intel Corp. Wireless WiFi Link 5100 (wlan0) from list. The other option was "Other Wireless Card".
I don't know what to do after this. What should I choose in the windows entitled "Configure Wireless Connection" and "Configure Network Settings" ? I chose Ad-Hoc for mode and entered an SSID name even though I have no explanation for taking these actions. As for the other settings, I simply went with whatever was already selected. At the moment, I lose Internet access when I disconnect the Ethernet cable. I see other wireless networks when I click the network icon on the top right corner of the screen. I don't know how to make my router appear on that list if that's necessary.
I have a brand new Lenovo Thinkpad T402i. A very good and expensive machine, however I have just installed the latest Fedora 15 and my wiresless does not seem to work properly, I can barely ping a website. I have read it's an Intel's bug. I cannot understand how can be possible with Intel...
I have installed Fedora 12 on my laptop and subsequently spent most of the day trying to get the wireless connection to work. Looks like I am not alone with Wireless issues Through searching and reading today I think the problem lies with the fact that the wireless on/off switch is not working. Under Windows, when I press the wifi toggle switch it starts flashing orange. I haven't managed to get it to do anything under Fedora.
I can't get my card Intel Wireless 5300 AGN to work. I'm running Slackware 13.1 and it's a full, fresh install.I get to show up with lspci -v:Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 5300 AGN [Shiloh] Network Connection...But it will not show up with 'ifconfig' which will only list the local loopback (yes we have have a eth problem as well but one thing at a time).
I'm running an HP Pavillion ZV6000, AMD 64 Athlon.I think that I'm not getting wireless because it never really shuts down. I've tried shutting down from the term (what I was used to from Damn Small) and it drops the window manager and then freezes on the black screen . . . I then have to do a hard shutdown (holding the power button).I've tried making sure that I don't have a USB stick in . . . shutdown wireless moduals, still the same.I'm starting to forget my keyboard commands, being that I am having to use windows to get on-line . . . like now!
I have a Dell 1501 Inspiron laptop and have swapped out the broadcom network card for an intel 4965AGN so I can use n-speed with my new router.Everything works sweet except my laptop now crashes if I try to run on battery power.It boots up to the login screen, but once I enter password and login it crashes, just get grey screen and everything locks up. Everything works fine on mains ?It's not a major problem for me as I don't use the laptop "out in the wild".
my laptop, an Acer Aspire 5050, recently broke horribly. However, after giving it to an IT teacher at my college, he fixed it, but now the operating system is OpenSuse 11.2 (It was Windows Vista Home Basic before). I have never used OpenSuse, or any Linux before, but everything seemed fine. However, I discovered that I can no longer pick up my wireless internet signal - why is this and what can I do to fix it?! Be aware I am not a computer man, and will not understand complicated technical language.
I have two wireless access points in my home network. A Linksys upstairs and a Watchguard Firebox downstairs. The Firebox acts as the gateway for my network to the internet (well, the ISP's router anyway). I invariably use my Hardy Heron installed HP laptop downstairs, less than 10ft from the Firebox. The signal bar for the Firebox shows three bars, the linksys just one. So, why the heck does my Ubuntu insist on connecting to the Linksys everytime?! I can manually switch it afterward but still, it's annoying.
I'm running Linux 11.04 and my wireless network was working just fine until today. I cannot connect to WiFi - it acts as if the device wasn't there. The hardware switch led isn't working. No matter how much clicking on it, it won't work.
lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSIDff/any Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=14 dBm
After wading through all of the bug reports filed regarding the Intel 4965 AG wireless adapter, trying various suggestions and not finding any solutions to my problem, I've finally decided to scrap the idea of actually being able to get my Toshiba laptop to connect reliably to my wireless network with Ubuntu 9.10. This wireless adapter worked absolutely flawlessly with 8.04 Hardy. I took the plunge once again this week and thought I'd try again to get 9.10 working on my laptop but it's a no go with the Intel wireless adapter (same problem with 9.04, it just doesn't work). You would think with newer versions of drivers and kernels that the same hardware that worked in a previous version, would continue working with newer versions.
Anyway, enough of my frustrated ranting... I need to find a replacement wireless adapter for my laptop that WORKS FLAWLESSLY with 9.10. When I say flawlessly, I mean you plug it in, boot up the laptop and it works all the time, every time. No fooling around with drivers etc... Either a PCMCIA or a USB wireless adapter that is currently available for purchase. I've waded through the sticky on the forum about which adapters are supposed to work, but I'm really hoping that someone here is using either a PCMCIA card or USB card and could please point me in the right direction. It's kind of funny, I purchase my Toshiba laptop because I read reviews here in the forum about how great it worked with Ubuntu 8.04. How all the hardware was recognized and worked out of the box. It did... with 8.04. Everything still works with 9.10 except the wireless.
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.
