Fedora Networking :: Wireless Network Not Detecting On Android?
Nov 11, 2010
I am using fedora 14 on lenovo laptops and android 1.6 I created a wireless network on my laptop with create a wireless network. But it was not detected by my android 1.6 phone. Same wireless network created on my MacbookPro is detected by the phone.
Even thought my Westel Model 7500 has the appropriate green lines (Power, Wireless, DSL, Internet), it always takes my Ubuntu 9.04, Dell Inspiron 1545n considerable effort to connect to the wireless network. Please note that I am using WPA security and MAC filtering.Below is the series of events, spanning about 10 minutes every time I boot up the laptop.1. Tries to connect wirelessly automatically.2. Pop-up appears with SSID and password in dots.3. Tries to connect wirelessly4. Pp-up appears with SSID and password in dots.5. Tries to connect wirelessly6. Pop-up appears with SSID and password in dots.7.Tries to connect wirelessly then says "[SSID Name] now disconnected"At this point I manually connect to wireless and after 45 seconds it says "[SSID Name] now connected"
moved to Fedora 11 but can't figure out how to get my wireless working. I have the broadcom driver installed and the Network Manager Applet shows the available wireless networks, but when I click on them they just don't connect.I get the following output on lspci regarding the wireless adapter:03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11a/b/g (rev 02)
i am new to fedora i recently downloaded fedora 13 and created a live usb. when i run the live usb it doesnt detect wireless networks. Its not just fedora, its linux mint 8 ubuntu 10.01, puppy and pretty much ever other iso.when i use wireless on my laptop fedora detects it as eth0 .when i try to create a new connection nothing happens.
I'm having a new problem with my wireless. It's detecting the network, but it won't connect. My Verizon card says it's WEP, but the WICD has three WEP options and none of them connect. What troubleshooting can I do?
My C++ program must be able to detect EVERY Wireless Network Interfaces under Linux operating system and display the interface names on the screen.How can my application achieve this?Is there any sample codes?Is there any third party libraries can do this?Notes: The detected wireless network interfaces should also include the virtual interfaces, like the one created by Aircrack-NG's Airmon-NG script.
I took the plunge and made a clean install of 10.04 because it sounded cool (and it is, I like it!) and now I'm tied to a wall again I've gone through several of the broadcom wireless card tutorials on the forums and the only thing I've managed to get is a lit up wifi light. It's not detecting an active unsecured network several inches away, that has computers up and running on it... I'm perfectly willing to post more details as needed.
I'm running fedora 13 but I'm having issues with the wireless connection, I can see all the networks in the area but when I try to connect it does not seem to accept the wep key.Its a Belkin receiver, could do with a little help as this is such a pain. I'm using a pc.---------- Post added at 05:24 AM GMT ---------- Previous post was at 04:59 AM GMT ----------This maybe some use but I don't know much about it.

First time ever switching from windows. Mainly doing this cause I though it would be fun to learn a new OS and see how it is.From watching a few videos it looked like all I have to do is click on the wifi logo at the top of the screen and I would get my router and a bunch of others (does this on windows) but when I click on it I dont get anything. I think it might be that im running this on a laptop. My wifi card is: Standard Dell Wireless 1501 802.11 g/nIts a new dell inspiron 5000 laptop i customized a little with more ram and a new video card.
Im guessing I will need to provide more info but as I said at the start Im new to this and not sure how or what info I would need to provide. Please just tell me how I can get any data you need and il get right on it. (I used Wubi to install this, went off without a hitch)
I'm trying to get my friend's laptop(acer travelmate 2200) to connect to his wireless network. I just installed a new hard drive and installed a dual boot windows xp/ Ubuntu 9.04 setup.
His laptop still connects fine with the old hard drive with windows XP installed, so I know the hardware is working.
When I click on the network manager , however, I don't see anything. Normally , I'd just hit the network manager and I'd see the available connections , but on this laptop I'm not detecting any.
The only thing I can think of , is that Ubuntu doesn't have the proper drivers needed for the wireless card in the laptop. But I don't know how to go about checking this since whenever I've done this before it's always just worked automatically.
I would hope that the title gives my problem away, but my wireless card is not detecting networks. I'm a total new guy to the Linux world, so please be patient with me. I currently have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on a stock Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5965.
I recently installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my Dell Inspiron Mini 10, and for some reason it isn't detecting any wireless networks. The wireless works perfectly fine when I boot to Windows XP on the netbook, but not when I'm using Ubuntu. I tried troubleshooting using this htmlAt the "check for device recognition" step, the terminal tells me that it's disabled, but as far as I can tell there isn't a physical switch that allows me to turn the wireless on or off, and again, it works perfectly fine when I use XP. What should I do?
I have a 64 bit install of Ubuntu 10.04, I was surfing up to 11:30pm EST last night, shut down for the night, upon reboot am unable to connect to the internet or my local network. Ubuntu seems to think that I have no ethernet cables connected.My networking is controlled by my motherboard (Gigabyte P55A-UD4P) and the problem is not on my cable modems side. The modem has multiple wired jacks, all of them are unresponsive with my Ubuntu PC while my roommate can connect to all of them with his Windows 7 PC. Both network cables (the one connecting to his box and the one connecting to mine) are interchangeable: They both work on his and neither on mine, so there is no broken cable.I've followed the troubleshooting in other posts, here are some commonly requested diagnostics:
ifconfig -a Code: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 6c:f0:49:53:1f:c0
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?

I used to use Ubuntu 10.04. Never had this problem. I went back to Windows 7 and then came back to Ubuntu, and 10.04.1 was released. After some usage of wireless internet, it disconnects from the access point, and phy0 has 100% usage. [URL].. I'm not the only one with the problem. I downgraded to 9.10, and haven't had that problem since the downgrade.
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on an old family laptop. It is a Compaq Presario V2000. Everything works perfectly except no wireless networks are recognized, even though I know there are available networks. My network controller is detected but is not doing it's job, which is finding available wireless networks! Using "system testing" I found this out about my network controller:
"Detecting your network controller(s):
Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10) Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)"
Here comes my problem: I am installing a new unit with Fedora Core 5,I will use it as my internet server. I need one additional PCI network card but it is not detected during installation.what shall I do?
After a few years of being a fedora user on a large network, I final decided to bite the bullet and dual-boot my home desktop (solely XP at the time) with fedora 10 on Saturday. The installation seemed to go well, but I am having a few problems, which solved themselves at one point but have come back and I have no idea why.
- I installed and re-partitioned with the install DVD, giving fedora 20GB. Having read a few guides and forum posts I wasn't surprised when the wifi and ATI graphics card didn't work. They appeared in the output of lspci, but I couldn't change the screen resolution and no wireless card was available. - I bought a new wireless card a while ago but hadn't had time to put in so used this opportunity to do so (installed it in XP to check it worked) and when I rebooted, guess what, the resolution was what I wanted and I could see all the networks in the neighbourhood. I connected, downloaded/installed the myriad of updates together with a couple of programes through yum and went to bed a happy man. - This morning (my router needed rebooting and after) I was back to the same as before the new wireless card, i.e. low resolution and no wifi. Having no idea what had happened, I check for loose connections, after that the resolution returned and the wifi worked but I can't see my home network.
I picked up a cheap PC the other day for �20 and it came with a Belkin N Wireless USB adapter. I know the adapter works because Windows XP was originally installed and I could connect with no problems. I wasn't able to connect when I installed Kubuntu so I thought I'd see if I could have any more luck with Fedora....so far, not so good! I realise that this is a fairly common problem, especially for this USB adapter, but I've tried dozens of threads here and elsewhere and still can't get Fedora online.I can see the wireless networks in the list, but if I try and connect then I just repeatedly get asked to enter the authentication details, which I know I'm providing correctly.
I just installed Fedora 13 on a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo 3553, after doing some testing in Mandriva 2010.1 Spring XFCE. I am not (I repeat "not") an experienced Linux-user, so maybe I need to get things with a spoon here, but the wireless networking in Mandriva is similar to the one in Fedora, and in Mandriva it worked fine, in Fedora I cant get connected. It just ask me for the password over and over again. Now I am on cabel, and that works fine.
After installing Fedora 15 on my notebook, I found that the one thing that I am unable to do is connect to a hidden encrypted wireless network automatically. I've seen plenty of people inquiring about this online but have found no solution. I can set up whatever I want to in my settings (using the old gnome2 interface setup, the gnome3 interface setup leaves the wireless options unconfigurable for some reason so I can't do anything with the "Network Name" dropdown)
All of my settings have been set up using the network manager from gnome2, but that doesn't seem to translate to my gnome3 desktop. So, is there any way to get the wireless to connect automatically on startup? I know my wireless card is working when I start my computer because it shows some of the networks in the area and I can connect to a few of the unprotected networks. This is the only problem I have with gnome3.
EDIT: from dmesg, I find the following: [485.63] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready
EDIT #2: Going into the network settings just to play around with it, I discovered that the network name dropdown box appears to be grayed out, but now it works when I click it (didn't the first time) -- this allowed me to connect to my hidden wireless network. Still however, it does not connect automatically (system default is the hidden wireless network) and I still have the DNS problem
I have upgraded to Fedora 15 but cannot get wireless up and running. When i switch on wireless and choose the connection it tries for 15 seconds before prompting me for the password and continues like this. When i check the device in my network config it shows as being inactive. Ralink device 3060
