General :: Can't Get Ubuntu 10.10 To Recognize Wireless Connection

Jan 12, 2011

My wireless internet works fine on Windows but not on Ubuntu 10.10 From researching the problem, the best advice I have found was to install ndiswrapper, locate the .inf file and install it through that. I have done so and that seems to have done nothing. Then I heard that you were supposed to run the command:


modprobe ndiswrapper

All that did was give me an error message about how that action was prohibited (or some such). I'm wondering if this is possible to fix on Ubuntu or if I will have to find something else. Also, the wireless driver I am trying to use is bcmwl6 which funnily enough seemed to have a package on the boot cd to install it.

That package didn't work and just gave me and error message telling me there was a programming error in it.
I'm sorry I wasn't particularly detailed with the messages I was getting, this is because I am currently on Windows and finding those again would mean rebooting and losing this post. I can get them though if they are particularly needed. I know this seems to be a commonish problem but I haven't found a solution (yet) that has worked for me.

Any one with experience of this problem?

General :: Can't Recognize Wireless Card

Jan 29, 2010

i'm run'n knoppix 6.5 (i think) from a usb stick. under 'ifconfig' it finds 'eth0', but when i put in 'iwconfig eth0' it says: 'eth0 no wireless extensions'. i've tried other linux live cd's but to no avail...interestinly enough, when i run a linux (ubuntu) live cd on my virtual pc it hooks up(?..i figure bcuz its reading from da virtual ethernet?) further more, i researched it to the conclusion that the driver is not being detected. i tried ndiswrapper (under 'puppy') but tht didnt work either ( i've downloaded the lastes version of ndiswrapper and i plan on trying it again w/ the installation disk of the wireless card). however, even in my research i've seen there seem to be a difficulty in getting this particular driver to work? (netgear wg311v3 - wireless g pci adapter) how i can over come this problem? i'm kinda new @ linux, but i like the challenge. it doesnt matter wat linux system (the responder) i'll download it. but i'm really trying to get 1 online cuz i have to learn how to work the packaging systems.

General :: Grub Loader Does Not Recognize Wireless Keyboard?

Jul 19, 2010

I have a mini tower that started life using only Windows XP, I converted it to dual boot Umbuntu 10.04 and Windows XP. So far, so good, since I was using a ps2 mouse and keyboard. My problem started when I converted to wireless keyboard and mouse.....the bios recognizes the keyboard, both operating systems recognize the keyboard and mouse....BUT!!, the grub loader recognizes neither. Now, I can get around this problem by 1. letting Umbuntu load by default or unplugging the USB connection device for the keyboard and mouse and replugging my old ps2 keyboard long enough to boot to the system that I want to use.

General :: Debian - Gnome: Wireless Connection List Missing Connection?

Then is connects nicely and everything works fine until next time I boot

Ubuntu Installation :: Live Does Not Recognize Internet Connection?

Dec 5, 2010

On trying to install Ubuntu 10.10, one PC was fine. I attempted to install it on a Lenovo Q150 using the Ubuntu Live CD, but it did not recognize a network connection. When the same PC is running Windows 7, the network connection is fine (it recognizes my NAS drive also).Has anyone else had this problem/found a solution? I'm sure that someone else has posted this, but a couple of hours' searching revealed nothing.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless - Lost It - 'wmaster0 No Wireless Extensions', But Then Refers To Wlan0 As The Wireless Connection

Mar 28, 2010

A friend who switched ISP's gave me his old Linksys WRT54-G wireless router. I went through the installation procedure and had a wireless connection up and running - smiley face. I had security set up for WPA, and decided to upgrade it to WPA2. Another smiley face. When I went to connect (had already done so successfully), I noticed it referred to my wireless as Linksys - I was expecting to see the SSID. So I started playing around in Network Manager and now I have things all effed up.

Don't know exactly what I did, but now I have no wireless. So I ran a few commands (lshw -C network, iwconfig, ifconfig, and iwlist scan), and looking at the results I see what appear to be inconsistencies in the output. I've posted them below, and make the following observations:

1. Under the lshw it refers to my wireless connection logical name as wmaster0, and has the correct MAC address, etc.

2. Under the iwconfig it says, 'wmaster0 no wireless extensions', but then refers to wlan0 as the wireless connection (although it does not seem to be running).

3. Under ifconfig I see both a wlan0 and a wlan0:avahi. The wlan0 has no IP, the wlan0:avahi does, but it is incorrect.

Networking :: Doesn't Recognize Internet Connection

Jan 22, 2010

I attempted to download and install Linux XP and the installation appeared to be a success. But after install of course the system reboots. Well after rebooting before opening up the desktop it forces me to set up the domain or something It would not recognize my internet/network connection. My ISP provider doesn't use any type of authentic. My internet connection is automatically configured through my modem. How do I get Linux XP to recognize my internet connection and finish the final process so that I can load into desktop ?? I also had a very similar problem with Linux Ubuntu Studio as well. I installed it and I was able to get into the desktop but still was unable to establish an internet connection.

Ubuntu Networking :: Router And The Modem Recognize Each Other But The Connection Drops Constantly

Sep 30, 2010

I'm running Lucid xubuntu. i have a netgear WG111v3 usb wireless card. The router and the modem recognize each other,. but the connection drops constantly.Other times it takes many tries to connect. There are 3 windows and one Xbox users in my house, all on the same router. When I spoke with 2 different people at Radio Shack, I was told that the software on the router is Windows based, so the Windows modems get top priority over Linux, hence the dropped signals. I was advised I could do One of three things:

1. Buy another router, one that specifically recognizes every operating system. That way, we all get equal bandwith.
2. Buy an antennae that boosts the signal.
3. Buy a booster for the signal that one cable end plugs into the router,then the device into a power outlet; the other in any power outlet, and then hardwire that to my ethernet card in my computer, so the signal stays constant. This is the output from the terminal:


Based on this information, what would be my best option. I can't run line all the way across the house to my computer; that would take 50-75 feet after winding it's way through the house. I don't use the ethernet card although it's still in the machine. Could it interfere with the signal?

My problem is the computer does recognize the wireless connections but when I put the wep key It just start trying to connect and then asks for it again, and this goes on and on and on. I'm pretty sure I got the key right so I have no idea whats going on. This happened to me to with the previous version of ubuntu and also with fedora and installations in virtual pc, or virtual box. Even normal installations with partition. This time I'm using wubi. I didn't get anything with the grep part, I must have done something wrong.

Dec 16, 2010

I installed ubuntu 10.04 LTS on my netbook a few months ago. So, obviously, i had to go through all those wireless troubleshooting guides. Well, it didnt quite get me anywhere. I cant seem to find my wireless adapter. I 've tried lspci, lsusb, but nothing comes up. So i cant even beggin to fix the problem. I 'd appreciate it if someone could help. Maybe point out which one my wireless adapter is? This is the -lspci output.

General :: Can't Connect To Internet Using Wireless On Ubuntu 10.10 Despite Having A Connection

The one thing that stands out at me is the ip address that it says the wireless connection is using. It says it is

General :: No Connection With Wireless BT Homehub?

Apr 12, 2011

I have just dual booted a friends Vista PC with fedora core 14. Unfortunately he needs a wireless connection to the internet vi a BT homehub 2.

I had thought this should just work straight off!

Can anyone give me a pointer to a step by step guide to do this (on FC14 preferably).

On Vista, I can get info using "ipconfig /all" at command line that gives stuff like default gateway, dhcp server, and so on. It's talking to the hub via a REALTEK8187B wireless USB (802.11g)

I suppose I have to add the hub via sys->Pref->Network_Connections->Wireless->Add.

If so, where do I ger the info to put in?
