Fedora Networking :: Edimax Ew-7711utn Wireless Cards Doesn't Work
Nov 15, 2009
I've currently got the beta of fedora 12 installed, hope to upgrade that once the final release comes out. I'm having so many problems getting wireless to work. I've got a edimax ew-7711utn wireless adaptor. It doesn't work. Really what I want is to take it back and get a wireless card that will work.
I was hoping that 11.3 would sort this ongoing problem out for me. It works, it doesn't work so on and so forth! Following the "My wireless doesn't work - a primer on what I should do next page" the first few cmnd line entries were irrelevant. However, here are the results (edited) of the dmesg file.
1.376898] usb 2-2: New USB device found, idVendor=7392, idProduct=7717 [ 1.376900] usb 2-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 1.376902] usb 2-2: Product: 802.11 n WLAN [ 1.376903] usb 2-2: Manufacturer: Ralink [ 1.376904] usb 2-2: SerialNumber: 1.0
I've recently been trying to resurrect an old laptop and so I brought a new HDD to replace its broken one. I then figured that Windows would probably be too resource hungry to run on the laptop and so thought I should try to run a Linux Distro instead but now I've hit a wall. I can't find a distribution that will install on this low a spec PC but also will enable me to use the wireless card I've specified, even though the card has Linux drivers bundled with it.
which chipsets are on the PCi and PCie cards, EW7722in and EW-7612PIn, and whether they can be made to run on a linux system. My system is recent (Linux home 18.104.22.168-0.6-default kernel) Do they have the same chipset as EW-7711In, which I notice has explicit linux support? Now this was on the 3/03/2011, and I had given up getting any kind of useful support, but I got a reply today. I hope they wont mind if I quote them:
I'm having problem getting my Edimax EW-7711UTn to work (I'm stuck with using the ethernet cable for now). The light flashes on it and it picks up wireless networks, but when I'm connecting to them, I put in the key, it tries to connect, but the wireless key window pops up again and again and again. I've looked up other threads about this, but none of the suggested methods have worked for me (I've checked to see if it's compatible, apparently it isn't, but people seem to have got it working before...) I'm using a Toshiba Satellite M40 laptop. $lspci:
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'm running 10.04 64 bit, and the Intel PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN does not work with n routers. I'd like to either upgrade the card, or buy a usb adapter, but I can't figure out which cards will work. I've searched[URL].. which lists supported wifi cards, but most of the info on that page is not relevant to lucid, and hasn't been updated at all this year. I saw elsewhere that any card with the atheros chipset will work, but what cards have this? Will all of them with this chipset work?
I've got an old laptop wich wireless adapter is a Gigabyte GN-WI01 GS MINI PCI(its chipset is Realtek RTL8169/8110, I believe) and I'm not able to make it run in Wifislax 3.1 Live CD. I downloaded the linux drivers for it and tried to install them following the instructions but when it came the time to execute configure.sh it told me that I had to actualize some kind of packets first(GK+ or something like that can't remember ). I also have another wireless usb adapter that I tried to use too. It's a Linksys WUSB54g v4(chipset: rt2570). I tried to follow a guide I found about making run an adapter like that on Wifislax 3.1 but when I had to "Force ralink rt73 on rt2500" it doesn't appear on my Live CD version, it appears "Force ralink rt73 on rt2570", dunno if it has something to be but I get an error while making it.
I don't know if it has to be with my laptop, my wireless adapters or my way of following the steps. If it has to be with my adapters I would like to buy some new one(not very expensive) that I won't have any problems running it on Wifislax and that will work on my old laptop(cause I just have that one and can't afford a new one).
I am a convert from Ubuntu (9.04 kept freezing on my laptop; when it did work, many packages it seemed were outdated--ie only Eclipse 3.2, rdesktop was messed up [and apparently is also in Fedora]), and I am having some trouble with getting my wireless working.I am running Fedora 11.First off, there is a problem when trying to connect when using DHCP. NetworkManager gets to the second green dot, and then after a short while I am given a message that the connection was disconnected.
Configuring the interface manually, not using DHCP, allows the connection to complete. However, the internet is very slow. There is a 15-30 sec delay before website loading actually commences, and then another delay each time an ad must be fetched from another server.How can I fix this delay? I know I have encountered it in earlier versions of Ubuntu, but I can't remember how I fixed it.About the rdesktop problem, if anyone is able to help [maybe I should post another thread?], the cursor color (the color of the pointer) is inverted---where it should be white it is black, and where it should be black it is white. I use rdesktop a lot to connect to my terminal server in my basement. Any idea how to fix it?
I'm having problems getting two wlan cards to work under Networkmanager with F12. I have an old server that I wanted to move, so thought I'd get a USB wlan device for it. before setting up the server, I thought I'd try the USB (an Edimax EW-7711USn - Ralink 2870) on my laptop first. My laptop has an inbuilt ipw2200 card that works fine under NM.
So I've down loaded the DPO_RT3370_LinuxSTA_V22.214.171.124_20100831.tgz file from Ralink, and built the driver (after changing the os/linux/config.mk file for the WPA supplicant settings). I also install the rt2870 firmware (from Ralink) in the /lib/firmware directory. I also blacklisted the rt2800usb driver to ensure that that didn't get loaded.
The problem I have is that I can now get both the ipw2200 device and the rt2870 devices 'working', but they both try to assume the same IP (I want fixed IP's and not DHCP for them) - what is the way to configure the 'devices' so that the rt2870 device is always given IP x and the ipw2200 given IP y?
I think my problem is really my lack of understanding where/how NM handles the files under the GUI config. I used to semi understand how the old network config tool set up it's files and where they were etc. But with NM I'm a bit lost as to how it equates the device with the network settings. Once I have the device working with the correct driver on my laptop, I'll look to apply the same settings on the server (which is then FC13 - but should be simpler as it doesn't have an existing wlan interface).
I have a Belkin Enhanced Wireless USB Network Adapter Model # F6D4050 v2. The drivers are for windows but the windows wireless drivers app doesnt work. I see a tutorial for a linksys that appears to have the same chipset, but I am not sure if any of the steps need to be modified, also my kernel is a bit different. Here is my kernel:
I have a elonex web book with UB 10.04lts installed. Now when i installed aircrack package and tried to scan using airodump-ng mon0 (card in monitor mode) it worked fine and picked up my test APs but wouldn't inject. So i downloaded the drive below and now i cant even use airodump it just sits there?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop. Up until about a week ago, my wireless worked fine, but now it rarely connects. Sometimes the connection indicator shows that I am connected, but when I click on it it doesn't show any active networks. Even when I use a wired connection it doesn't always work.
Just installed Ubuntu Studio 10.04 and everything seems to be working nicely except I have no networking.
The card does not appear in the Network Settings GUI. The only 3 tabs I have are General, DNS, and Hosts.
A screen grab is attached.
I'm a long time Windows user trying out some of the best Linux creative apps I can find. So, Ubuntu Studio was a no brainer. I checked the manufacturer's site for linux drivers and they are available, but I don't know how current. (Edimax site, not RaLink's site.) I opened the file and it looks like it needs to be compiled and installed to work. Something I know almost nothing about. The card is listed as supported in this forum for Ubuntu 9x but I can't find information about it for 10.04
PS. I have no networking on the system but I can transfer files via USB flash drives if needed.

My wireless broadcom card was working just fine until now as i installed it with the Hardware Devices manager, Today i put a new ALFA AWUS036H usb card to work with aircrack. both cards were working together for a while, but as i started playing around with aircrack the broadcom card of the HP has stopped working.
I made a mistake and followed the aircrack tutorial for R8187 / ieee80211 stacks driver, while i'm using RTL 8187 / mac80211 stack drivers, and blacklisted the RTL8187 , rebooted and then both card didn't work. I un-blacklisted it, and the ALFA is working but the broadcom not!
iwconfig shows me only one wireless card on wlan0 the blue light showing activity in the HP card doesn't go on.
Tried to uninstall and reinstall broadcom drivers, still no change.
I use kmail in kubuntu 8.04. Whenever I have a wired connection, kmail checks email and sends messages just fine. However, any time I switch to wireless, kmail just says "No new messages," without even checking. I am also unable to send email over wireless.
I got Ubuntu 10.10 installed. Unfortunately, my wireless doesnt work. I'm connected to my router, but web pages wont load.
I thought to myself, maybe Ubuntu needs to update. So I lugged my computer out to the router itself and okugged my computer in. I went into update manager and let it do its thing. It was PAINFULLY slow. I had a less than 100 b/s. But I let it do its thing. After all 200 Mb's were done, which took a couple hours, I rebooted my system. Now, I cant even connect to my wireless and the internet symbol (the wireless bars thing in the top right) is gone.
My intel pro wireless 2200 NIC doesn't work anymore. Yesterday it did, but not today (I didn't do anything special, so that it could go wrong).What is ucode and -62? Any ideas? I already checked the forums and found that ipw doesn't work when ndiswrapper is loaded. Well, I don't have it loaded. What happend?
I've recently installed KDE 4.4.1 just to try on a Dell 1545 laptop with Ubuntu 9.10 previously installed.
My problem is that the wireless connection works just perfectly with nm-applet under Gnome, but when I login on KDE and ask KNetworkManager to connect to the same network as before, it can't finish the connection.
When I choose the connection the program asks for my passphrase, I type it and then it just sticks on "activating network" and nothing happens.
My experience with KDE is zero, so I don't even know where to start looking. I'd even tried to kill KNetworkManager and try to replace it with nm-applet, but I think there's a daemon that restarts it immediately.
I just installed Ubuntu on my windows pc with no problems....except for wireless that is. I have a USB Linksys WUSB54G adapter to access my 2WIRE, WEP network. The thing is, it shows up in the top right hand corner. It even gives me the signal strength. But when it comes to using Mozilla, it is never able to access a page. If I try to Ping something, it's unable to. So I thought maybe I need to use ndiswrapper with my .inf and .sys files from the driver for my windows. I installed it, and added the driver to it...everything went O.K. I check it and it says it's installed and working. Again, I can see the wireless networks, and "connect" but when I try to use the connection there is nothing. I have also tried my neighbours non-WEP connection, but it still doesn't work. So I'm sort of at a loss with what I should do now. I see the networks, can "connect" but can't browse. I installed the drivers from my windows, and it still doesn't work. I used a LIVE CD of Knoppix and I can connect to the Network within 30 seconds and start browsing the net.
Have tried methods from every thread I could find for past 10 hrs. Have tried installing rt3070sta etc.Monitored message log; appears that the driver isn't recognized, though the USB port sees that something is plugged in (when I plug in the adapter, and unplug it).All of the threads miss something; I can't get a wireless port listed under ifconfig no matter what I try. Seems that every method leaves out something (I guess because everyone's box is different in some way). Network manager doesn't help much. Downloaded Wicd, which does even less.I guess I could try ndiswrapper, but I'm scared away by the hundreds of pages I see on going that route; I'm almost certain it wouldn't work (1000 possible points of failure).Does anyone have a strategy to recommend?AM64 box, newly installed Edubuntu 10.04, ran update manager.
I have a Toshiba Satellite series laptop, i get ubuntu on it, all works well but there's a problem, my wireless card doesn't work, it doesn't show me the aviable wireless network, my Wireless Card is an Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10) but it works in windows. I used Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS. When i run these codes that's what it shows:
I installed Ubuntu on a machine after erasing everything else and the wireless has never worked. It says that the wireless has already shut down even though it recognizes the wireless network and my other non-linux machines see the network and work fine.
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
Yes, that's correct, it's a Celeron 400 running Xubuntu. And the card was working on 9.10, but not working anymore in 10.04 neither in 10.10.I've no other idea and I'm really considering moving back to 9.10Is there anything else I can check.
