General :: 12 And Windows 7 - Get Wireless Connection To Work On The Network?
Apr 3, 2010
how to get my wireless connection to work on the network. I don't see anywhere to go to see if the wireless adapter is even setup in Fedora. My other question is when I boot up and get the options to select the OS the first one is Fedora but the other one says it is other.
I think that is is booting up the recovery partion of Windows. I don't know how to change it so that it is looking at the correct portition. I know it has something to do with the menu.lst file but when I try to open it says that I do not have premission. I am not sure where to go to edit it.
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 am fairly new to linux and I just bought a new computer. I have a dell inspiron N4010 and I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on it. I then was unable to connect with a wired connection or wireless. I am sure this is a driver issue I just don't know how to get the proper drivers. If I put my mouse over the wireless icon it says networking disabled. But the switch to enable networking is on the keyboard
After deciding to get into Linux and start learning the secrets of it, I decided to install it on my laptop. Now I have a small problem. How can I get my wireless connection to work on it? I have read few guides and tips on the internet regarding the iwconfig and the rc.wireless_conf files, but it didn't get me anywhere. I have Slackware 13.37
Its a case of ".... wireless network connection active but still not internet connection .."I am using WEP - 128 key ... Works when I connect directly using ethernet cable ... but not wireless (pci and wireless router)
I just loaded Suse 11.3 on my laptop. I can't get my wireless network to work. I tried via Yast and then switched back to Network Manager but nothing works.NM says that it is running, however I have no way to access it. No icon and I don't know where it is located or how to add to desktop panel.
I'm using a hp dualprocessor athlon 11 g42-415dx notebook pc and my wireless wont work i put the passcode in wicd program and it says bad password. So i tried the pin code on the wireless router and that didnt work so am i doing something wrong or is there something wrong with the hardware? i got the wired connection to work but cant get wireless its a little more complex.
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 deleted the firewall files "K09SuSEfirewall2_init", "K01SuSEfirewall2_setup", "S11SuSEfirewall2_setup" and "S01SuSEfirewall2_init" from "/etc/rc.d/rc5.d" in order to disable the firewall when rebooting.
As a consequence all network services are not working. I can't connect to any other machine nor to the internet.
I rebuilt the symbolic files based on the ones for runlevel 3, but still no network services are available.
Any suggestions how to make it work again? I'm using Suse 11.3.
I have the "Work Offline" problem: when I boot up, the icon on the toolbar tells me I have "No network connection". This is not quite true, since I can access the first page of any website - only subsequent pages are inaccessible. I get a message saying that Firefox is offline. However, when I uncheck "Work Offline" in the File menu, it makes no difference to this behavior.
The problem is on my Ubuntu Dell desktop, which is connected to the internet with cable broadband via a D-Link router (wired connection). It has worked fine up till now. I use Ubuntu 10.04 and Firefox 3.6.11. I am writing this on my Ubuntu Dell laptop which is wired to the same router, so I assume the problem is not the router. I have tried various strategies suggested in threads on these forums, including editing about:config, changing "allow" to "deny" in some lines of /etc/dbus-1/system.d/NetworkManager.conf and changing from Automatic (DHCP) to Automatic (DHCP) Addresses only, but no luck so far. The contents of ifconfig are:
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
I installed Ubuntu and I cant get my wireless connection to work. I found that I need ndiswrapper to update my drivers following the sticky post in here. However there is a problem, because I cant successfully run ndiswrapper on my system.
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on an Acer Extensia lap top. Thinking about re-installing for two reasons:
1. I can't get the wireless connection to work. It did on the earlier version -- 9.
2. it kept all my previous installs even though I only asked them to save one other OS that I need. The second problem I could live with, though I wouldn't mind having the space that is used on these systems I don't want.
So, should I go back to an earlier version of Ubuntu? If I do re-install can I use the "specify partitions manually" option and get rid of the extra OSs? I'm not exactly a beginner, but neither am I an "expert." Don't want to get into highly technical fixes.
PS I think it may be a compatibility issue with Acer, as I use 10.04 on a dell and don't have the wireless problem. Do I need a driver?
I am on a Dell Vostro 1520, running Ubuntu 10.04 and I am having problems connecting to the internet via wireless. Wired connection works but wireless doesn't. My laptop is running a Broadcom BCM4312 wireless card. And it says "wireless is disabled", how do I enable it? What do I have to do to get this working?
I'm considering installing Debian on my Toshiba A660 laptop but I want to be sure the wireless connection will work. I have Windows 7 on it already on it and it has a Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter. Is there an easy way to set up a wireless connection and will it work on a live CD to test it?
I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 1410 notebook running Windows 7 home edition. I installed Ubuntu 2.3 and my wireless and network LAN connection is not working. I saw on a link in this forum, someone was having similar problem. However, when i tried the solution that was recommended/suggested to the person, it did not work for me.
what I can do to get my wireless and wired connection to work?
I've just upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04. Everything worked fine, until I rebooted. Now I can not connect to my home wireless internet, so I can't re-enable third party software sources. I am currently using a different computer, so I know that our internet works. I checked the wireless switch on my laptop, and it says that wireless is enabled. I've rebooted, and it still doesn't work. I tried our wired internet, and that didn't work either (although I'm not sure if our wired internet works; we haven't used it in a few years)
I had work well with opensuse 11 and the internet also work well but when I turn off my computer and then use the XP and work with it. I find out the connection with the internet doesn't work in the opensuse 11. I made a repair and format to opensuse 11 but without any change the net still doesn't work.
CPU Pentium4 Motherboard Gigabyte intel 945 S-series Dial up connection I have no experience with opensuse.
I have a router working as an access point for Internet access. It is used by sveral computers. Wi-Fi connection to Internet through this router does not work after boot on openSUSE 11.4.The cannection becomes established, shows IP address, access point MAC address,the signal level is high. But Internet is unaccessible with traceroute returns"the host is unreachable" message.
If to disable the automatic start of the interface and start it manually with ifup wlan0, nothing changes: the interface still does not work after first start.This is very annoying because this laptop is use by a girl who cannot restart interface. She says she cannot do anything with it.
I would want to connect to Ubuntu 10.10 via windows. i have tried to connect to it using my IP address locally and it works however when i try to access it from outside (not Locally) it does not work - I keep getting the message IP Does not exist or something?
im having a problem setting ad hoc wireless network between two opensuse boxes, using network manager, every time im about to smash the box, maybe im doing something wrong in the steps or something idk
I have installed opensuse 11.3. I am unable to connect to my wireless connection. KNetworkManager finds the connection (when I scan for connections), I can enter the WEP Hex key, it says it is configured. Goes through its "check list" when you click "ok", and all seems good. But it won't connect. When I run "nm-tool" I get: State: unknown WARNING **: error: could not connect to NetworkManager Just ridiculous, brand new, up to date OS, and its this difficult to connect to a wireless router!
Hi - I am new to Linux and Ubuntu so I have no idea how to fix or problem solve unfortunately I installed Ubuntu 9.10 from scratch recently on this laptop and all was good. I connected to my WIFI network no problem. It's WPA PSK encrypted, DHCP enabled. I just set it up in Network Manager and it was all fine. Then after a few days I installed a printer and some packages and updates via synaptics. The network connection started dropping after 20 mins or so. Only a reboot would restore it - auto connects at first, runs fine till it drops then never will reconnect. I posted on here, someone gave me some lines to put in a config file. I tried that. I didn't seem to help much, problem remained. Yesterday I checked for updates and there were a whole bunch so I just installed them all. Now I cannot connect at all. I have deleted and recreated the connection in Network Manager but it doesn't help. It tries to establish a connection but never achieves it. I am connecting to the internet now on the same laptop booted into Windows, so all the hardware is fine.
Can anyone who knows about ubuntu networking help? Do I need to do a complete reinstall? Seems a bit much, but it worked when I initially installed the OS. I want to like Ubuntu, but something as basic as connecting to the internet is pretty vital so reluctantly having to start using Windows again...
I just got my first laptop, an ASUS eee pc 1201n. It came with Windows 7, but i decided to load the latest version of Ubuntu Netbook Edition on it as well.Today when I tried to access the internet via my library's free wireless service I couldn't get Ubuntu to recognize any wireless connections. I checked with Windows 7 and several networks appeared, including my libraries, but Ubuntu was blank.
I have been uninstalling, reinstalling, .... for about the past 14 hours and finally I realize I need help. First, I am trying to install the latest Ubuntu 10.04.1 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 laptop (HP Pavilion).
I did have 10.04 running for a few months on this laptop but when I recently upgraded to ver. .... 32-24 things started to go wrong. Suddenly, I could no longer even bootup Ubuntu ...32-24. But, I was able to use ...32-23 or ...32-21 which were also on my machine. Then in trying to fix ...32-24 all my installed versions of Ubuntu 10.04 became unbootable. I tried many suggestions (see my postings on this yesterday and today on the Ubuntu forum -- General help) .
I realized that this was hopeless after many attempts. I could not bootup, even from my bootable Ubuntu CD. I then decided to just begin from scratch and install the latest downloadable Ubuntu --- I started with this early this morning. This went rather smooth; but, no matter how many reinstallations I did, I could never make a wireless connection to the network. Note, the same wireless hardware and settings were used as in the previous working versions of Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7 (on the same machine) --- I have not made any hardware changes.
I am sending this message from my desktop PC which has Ubuntu 10.04 (32-bit) and again, I have carefully checked and verified that the setting for my wireless connection to the internet are identical for both (this desktop and my laptop). However, I am still unable to make a wireless network connection on my laptop!
What can I do to get my wireless network working on my laptop with the latest download of Ubuntu 10.04.1? It could be that this latest download of Ubuntu 10.04.1 does not have the necessary drivers/software for the wireless network. But, it was ok in the previous downloadable --- I had been using it for a couple of months with no problems at all. Is it possible to reinstall 10.04 vers. ...32-23 rather that 10.04.1 vers. ...32-24? I could not find this on the Web.
I installed Jolicloud OS with Windows XP before because Windows XP have too many virus to attachment to Internet so whenever I go on the internet, most of the link take us to random site so I just installed Jolicloud OS however, some reason, I don't like Jolicloud very much because it require to enter the user name and password to link Jolicloud so wasted my time to use it... Its cool but pointless.
So, I just realised Ubuntu also provided free Ubuntu OS for netbook. After I downloaded Ubuntu desktop 11.04 and installed the system (all the datas is now gone and only current OS is Ubuntu)So, once I installed it... The netbook seem running well and no problem however, there is a huge problem is wireless are not found so I can't even use the Internet!.This netbook only got wireless and nothing else to connect like cable (wired).
