Fedora Networking :: Wireless Wake-on-lan From A Windows Box?

Dec 23, 2009

I been a windows guy forever, and wanted to make the switch. Anyways, I am hoping to do a wireless wake-on-lan from a windows box. I have an older laptop that has a dead screen and I am trying to use it as a server. So, I want to be able to VNC the linux box from my vista machine. I think that's going to be straight forward. But, the linux machine doesn't have a builtin wireless card, so I am using a USB wireless deal. If I let the laptop hibernate/sleep after being idle, can I wake from my vista box over my network?

Networking :: Wake Lost Wireless Card Up With Modprobe?

Feb 27, 2009

I suppose this was caused by an update, I don't know. I just know that my wireless card is no longer seen by my Ubuntu 8.1. Maybe I should be in the newbie area. Isn't there a way I can wake it up with modprobe?

Fedora Networking :: Enable Wireless Networking Does Not Work In Windows?

Jun 20, 2009

I've been experiencing a problem with Fedora in which when I enable Wireless in Fedora, Wireless networking does not work in windows. HOwever, when disabled, it works correctly. Windows claims it is "not able to find any networks to connect to"

EDIT: It seems that when wireless is disabled manually on fedora before shutdown, there are no problems in windows.

Fedora Networking :: Wireless Much Slower In FC12/13 Than In Windows

Jun 11, 2010

"Dell 1525 WLAN PCIe card with11n mini-Card & external antenna" wireless card. It got recognized fine by FC12, but it was rather slow. I had read that life would be better in FC13 with the new kernel. After a long wait, I upgraded to FC13 yesterday.

It seems that the wireless is indeed faster. However, it it clearly a lot slower than under Windows 7 (it is a dual boot PC). My test is simply to play say Hulu in full screen: under Windows it looks fine, under FC13 it plays in slow motion.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wlan0 Resume On Laptop Wake Up?

Aug 11, 2011

I've just a had laptop meltdown which resulted in the acquisition of a replacement (HP635) sporting a realtek wireless NIC. Found the drivers and installed them and all is well. HOWEVER, the card is not activated on wake from sleep mode. This is kind of astounding to me. Every crappy windows version that I've used can handle this situation. Many searches, however have failed to yield any help. After every resume from sleep mode I have to run ifup to start wlan0. Surely this is not the only way it can be? I have to assume that I'm not getting something simple, and someone here can point out my failing. or if you can just sympathize. running 11.4 here using the realtek 8192 driver set to start at boot time. Though none of the other settings have had any effect on this problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Get Wireless Network Adapter To Be Read By 'Windows Wireless Drivers'

Nov 24, 2010

I recently reformatted and dual partitioned to both Windows 7 as well as ubuntu 10.10. Loading works fine and Windows 7 is 100% operational. I cannot seem to get my wireless network adapter to be read by Ubuntus 'Windows Wireless Drivers' gui. Here are the steps that I have done THUS far, to make sure that we are all on the right path. Before I go any further, my wireless network adapter is an old school WUSB11 Linksys Wireless Network Adapter (running version 2.6).

1) Downloaded and installed "ndiswrapper" from ubuntu's main website. I downloaded the common, utils and ndisgtk files and installed them accordingly.
2) I extracted these three files to the desktop of Ubuntu and accessed the terminal page.
3) From terminal I typed "cd Desktop" to change the directory to the desktop.
4) Next, I typed in "Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-common_1.54-2ubuntu1_all.deb
Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.54-2ubuntu1_i386.deb
Sudo dpkg -i ndisgtk_0.8.5-1_i386.deb"
5) This installed Windows Wireless Drivers gui successfully and I can access it.
6) I have downloaded the driver files for the adapter from the cisco website and searched them for the required files needed.
7) After extracting the .INF file from the "Drivers" directory named "NETUSB.SYS" (I wasn't sure if the other associated files within the same folder needed to be present together with NETUSB so I moved everything to the desktop) I typed in "sudo ndiswrapper -i NETUSB.inf". After accessing the Windows Wireless Drivers gui I have noticed that the 'netusb' driver is present yet under it, the system states "Hardware present: No". This leads me to believe that maybe I installed incorrectly or my "fireware?" is not present? I was reading through the installation guide posted on the ubuntu website that in addition to the .INF file we also need the BIN file(s)? and SYS file(s)?.. The folder with the drivers for my adapter contains a BIN file but it is not within the "Drivers" section of the folder.
9) Upon mousing over the network Icon naturally my hardware is still not present.
10) From what I gather after the system finds the hardware I am to write into the terminal

Networking :: Wake On Lan Settings In Ethtool?

Mar 3, 2009

Im trying to remote power on my debian machine with gnome with the wake on lan function. I enabled it on my mainboard and was configuring my ethtool. There i see:

Ubuntu Networking :: Setup Wake-on-lan With A Laptop?

I tried to follow this guide on how to setup wake-on-lan with a laptop, but instead of


Auto-negotiation: on

Wake-on: g
Link detected: yes

I got this:


Auto-negotiation: on
Supports Wake-on: g
Wake-on: g
Link detected: no

I must confess I didn't see any setting in the BIOS that directly referred to WoL, but I enabled something and hoped it should be right. Is this the problem? Is there any way to check if the hardware supports WoL other than looking through the BIOS?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wake-on-lan With Shutdown Computer?

Dec 11, 2010

This isn't stricly an Ubuntu question, but it is in the cause of an Ubuntu-powered home server Essentially: does wake-on-lan work if the computer is Shut Down (ie to all intents and purposes 'off' except for the hardware switch on the back), assuming that the motherboard and network interface (which in my case are one and the same) support wake-on-lan?

Also, if wake-on-lan is turned on, will this mean power going to anything other than the network interface (e.g. will PSU, CPU, case fans still be on?)Finally, will all of this work on Ubuntu 10.10 (assuming that the computer components are compatible)?

EDIT: Just to be clear, the Ubuntu system will be receiving the wake-on-lan 'call' (from a Squeezebox, though from my very limited knowledge of this stuff I don't think the source matters)

Fedora Hardware :: Can't Wake Up Display

Jul 14, 2010

Running Fedora 12 with all the latest updates installed.

Using Radeon card with the experimental Mesa 3D driver. (The opensource stuff rather than ATi's closesource driver.)

Most of the time when it goes into screensaver, and turns off the monitor, it can't be wake up again.

The OS is still running, I can access it's web server, ssh, everything, just can't use the desktop!!

I have tried nomodeset and pcie_asm=off in grub but neither of them fixes the problem.

What else should I try?

Fedora :: Cannot Wake From MCE Remote In New Kernel?

Jul 17, 2010

I am running a Fedora 12 installation in my bedroom as a slave mythtv frontend. I have set it up to be able to put the PC to sleep and wake up with a MCE remote. This has been working for near on a year now with no issues. Yesterday I did a yum update and ended up with kernel (up from

Now everything seems to work fine however I can put the PC to sleep with the remote but I cannot wake it up with the remote. a cat of /proc/acpi/wakeup shows

DeviceS-state Status Sysfs node
SMB0 S4 disabled pci:0000:00:03.2
USB0 S4 enabled pci:0000:00:04.0
USB2 S4 enabled pci:0000:00:04.1
US15 S4 enabled pci:0000:00:06.0


At the grub prompt if I select the old kernel then the computer will start up with no graphical prompt (need to figure out how to work kmod-nvidia i guess), but I can use the remote to put the pc to sleep and wake it up again. Also using the old kernel and telneting into the PC I see that /proc/acpi/wakeup is no different. Does anyone have any clues on hoiw to get wakeup to work with this new kernel? Or how do I roll back everything to the older kernel and get my graphics driver back (i tried to reboot with old kernel and then yum erase kmod-nvidia-PAE and then yum install kmod-nvidia-PAE but no luck.

Another thing worth noting is that I can wake the computer with the power button, just not the USB remote. THere is also nothing in the motherboard bios for setting wake on USB.

Fedora :: Wake Ups (60000) Per Second Reported By PowerTop In F12

Dec 11, 2009

I've ran "powertop" on my computer and it showed horrible amount of wake-ups per second:

Cn Avg residency P-states (frequencies)
C0 (cpu running) (26.7%) 2.81 Ghz 100.0%
polling 0.0ms ( 0.0%) 1400 Mhz 0.0%
C1 16.2ms (60.5%) 1050 Mhz 0.0%
C2 0.0ms (12.8%) 700 Mhz 0.0%
350 Mhz 0.0%

Wakeups-from-idle per second : 63944.8 interval: 5.0s
no ACPI power usage estimate available

Top causes for wakeups:
45.1% ( 15.6) <interrupt> : pata_atiixp
26.0% ( 9.0) <kernel core> : hrtimer_start_range_ns (tick_sched_timer)
9.2% ( 3.2) <kernel core> : hrtimer_start (tick_sched_timer)
5.8% ( 2.0) <kernel core> : add_timer_on (clocksource_watchdog)
1.7% ( 0.6) <interrupt> : ohci_hcd:usb4, radeon, yenta
1.7% ( 0.6) Xorg : queue_delayed_work (delayed_work_timer_fn)

Suggestion: increase the VM dirty writeback time from 5.00 to 15 seconds with:
Echo 1500 > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_writeback_centisecs
This wakes the disk up less frequently for background VM activity
Q - Quit R - Refresh W - Increase Writeback time
If I wait it decreases to 50000, but it is still huge!

Situation is duplicated after complete F12 re-install. All defaults are used and no changes performed after install. Just checked again and let computer run idle for a while. Powertop reports 79604 wake-up per second, even more than before. Again, the top cause is "pata_atiixp". Also, performing suggestions of powertop shown at the bottom of the program does not help either. That decreases wake-up by a few hundreds only. Wake-ups are still well over 50000.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Dropping But Not Windows?

Feb 25, 2010

Having major wireless issues with Linux. I have DSL and had a Westell router/modem combo and my wireless would stay up for no more than 15 mins at a time even while idle, and in order to get wireless back I have to reboot and then I can get another 5-15 mins of wireless before it drops. When it drops it prompts me for my wep key and wont accept it yet if I reboot it catches the wireless right away for a very short period. So I go out today and spend over $100 bucks on a Netgear dgn2000 thinking it would fix the problem... Nope I am still in the same boat as I was with the Westell.

I am not seeing my router model listed under the wiki link sticky.. (Edit) thought I installed ndiswrapper, it was it was in my downloads anyway I can't install it I get the following error (Not a valid driver .inf file.)I have tried 3 distros and have the same problem. I went to Netgears site in search of Linux drivers but all I found was the firmware updates. Could some one please shed some light on what I need to do to get up and running?This is a new laptop and I am pretty annoyed with myself for formatting it out of the box rather than reading up a bit more about Linux (been using for one month).I don't understand it Ubuntu 10.9 ran wireless perfect on my older system, (full install) and I have no trouble with my lap top that is running Windows.I really hope to get this resolved I really enjoy Linux and I don't want this to be the one handicap which would force me back to Windows, that would be very upsetting

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 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?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Signal Low But Strong In Windows

Jul 7, 2010

My laptop has sat in the same area for days, I've noticed that in Ubuntu I get a real low signal and can barely connect for a minute and on Windows I get like 3/5 bars. I don't understand what's going on. Is it a driver issue or something?My wireless card is Realtek RTL8187B and using the latest Ubuntu as of today.But just so everyone knows, I have google'd and search around for a few hours. I've seen many different types of problems that just wasn't like mine. Lots of people can't even get theirs to work and some people use different types of drivers. But Ubuntu detects my wireless card fine, I'm just having a signal strength problem. Because the Windows on my laptop has a much stronger signal as stated above.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Only Work After Restarting From Windows?

Jul 23, 2010

I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 in one of my notebook's HD partitions. It all runs smoothly, except for wireless. For some reason, Ubuntu only finds my wireless connections after I boot into Windows and then restart. If I boot straight into Ubuntu, I always get the 'device not ready' or 'disconnected' message under 'Wireless networks'.

Does anyone know what might be the cause of the problem and what can I do to solve it?

Below are some information about my computer, as requested in the 'How to post a wireless issue' thread.

These are the results AFTER restarting from Windows.

Machine brand: Mirax - XT8000 NTL 243200
