New Ubuntu user here, and I'm having difficulties connecting to my router at home. I've searched around the forum for a couple of hours now, to no avail. My router was originally not broadcasting ssid, so I turned broadcasting on. Now I can see the router, but when I enter a password (which I know is correct) nothing gets connected.
I'm running ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop.Wireless networks appear on the dropdown menu but when I try to connect to my home network the authentication box appears, after typing my password the box disappears and it continues to connect but nothing happens and after a while the authentication box appears again. So.. no internetz connected.
I just switched from Ubuntu to Fedora 13 because I was unable to get Ubuntu to connect to wireless networks. I tried everything suggested in help and forums, and kept getting "Bad Password" with WICD and Network Manager. Now, with Fedora...I still can't connect.
Problem #1: The guide says to "...make sure that the relevant wireless interface (usually eth0 or eth1) is controlled by NetworkManager," and that I do this via: System>Administration>Network
However, there is no Network option under System>Administration.
Problem #2: I open Network Manager, which displays a list of networks. I click on mine, configure it with WPA and the right password, and it fails to connect: "The network connection has been disconnected."
While staying at a hotel that offered wireless Internet connection connection I was not able to access their network. I contacted their technical support 800 number and was told that the north building server had been down for 26 hours. I moved to a south builing room. Same problem. I went to McDonald's, which had wi-fi connection. Same thing. My laptop was not able to make a connection.
My question is as follow:
How do I find out:
1) whether it is a problem with my new Ubuntu version (10.04)?
2) my wireless card in my laptop is no longer working? Are there any tests that I can run?
I installed wheezy on my Acer Aspire One netbook and am unable to connect to wireless networks.Output of lspci shows this as my wireless card:

Just today I installed opensuse 11.3 on my Compaq CQ61. Even though I am able to connect to networks (both with an ethernet cable and wireless) I don't have internet access. I have used opensuse for a very brief period in the past and I had no such problem.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my Toshiba A200-12U laptop (with an Atheros AR5007EG wireless card), but networking is being problematic.I entered Network Configurations and tried to get 'Auto eth0' working -- I went to Edit > IPv4 settings and filled in 'Addresses' with the details of my connection:
Address: 192.168.1.254 (the local IP of my router) Netmask: 255.255.252.0 Gateway: 184.108.40.206
I am fairly new to linux, I getting to grips with the offline and I am starting to be converted. The major problem I have is that I cannot get it to connect to my wireless network. I am using Fedora and my wireless card is the Belkin Wireless G Desktop Network Card - F5D7000uk (version 3000uk).
I am able to see the network and pick up the essid automatically through networkmanager or iwlist scan. I have tried to connect using Network manager: - it picks up the information and I submit my WEP key and the icon top right shows two green dots with a blue flame(?) rotating between them for a few minutes before asking for my key again.
And using the terminal commands.
Code: $ sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode managed $ sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid "BTHomeHub3-12GT" $ sudo iwconfig wlan0 key 563865428 then tried to test the connection using
I am running debian testing dist-upgraded to sid with the latest gnome-shell. All is fine, I have recently moved to a new house and noticed that network manager wont detect my home wireless network. It does scan for networks and locates SSIDS from other local networks including my neighbours wifi where I can connect but will not detect mine. The modem router used is a zte quite popular in Greece and I have the broadcom wl driver installed. By the way since it is a dual boot machine - nasty win7 connect just fine and so does my mobile phone...
I have been having trouble getting my network card to access networks. I currently am using a wired connection. A while ago when I first installed Linux on this same computer, I got it working by installing the driver. But since I reinstalled Linux, I tried the process again with no success. Can anyone give me explicit instructions on installing the network card driver so I can use it on Linux.
I'm dual-booting Ubuntu 9.10 (upgraded from 9.04) and Windows 7 on my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop.Ubuntu doesn't recognize any wireless network (both in 9.04 and 9.10); my Windows OS works perfectly well with wireless, as does my wired Internet connection with Ubuntu and Windows.I've had this problem on previous installations of Ubuntu (I've removed and re-installed it several times) but I can't locate the solution anywhere. I've tried numerous fixes that I've found online, but none of them have worked.System>Administration>Hardware Drivers tells me that the Broadcom STA Wireless driver is activated and currently in use
I've tried every fix i could find. I'm on a Dell Inspiron 1420 running Ubuntu 10.10 lucid lynx using a BCM4312 LP-PHYi've tried everything to get my wireless networks to connect but nothing works. I finally got my computer to recognize my wireless card but it doesn't detect or connect to networks. Before i was able to at least see the networks but not connect or stay connected once i disconnected the ethernet cable. i will post the output of ifconfig, iwconfig, iwlist scan
I bought a Letux 400 mini netbook and it works fine except for wireless Ethernet. It finds wireless networks, including mine, and then pretends to connect, after asking for a password, but finally never connects. I tried reconfiguring the wireless network from g to b/g and finally to b only, but nothing changed. Cable connection works. Unfortunately all relevant Letux Web pages are hopelessly slow and certainly too slow to use the forum and ask questions there. why the thing doesn't connect and how to make it connect? If it recognises networks, shouldn't it be able to connect as well?
I have a msi netbook with ubuntu netbook remix installed and it was working great until yesterday when suddenly it stopped detecting my home network. There are no problems on my two other machines, so I'm sure the problem is the netbook. I have no idea how to go about troubleshooting this. I was hoping someone could help me by giving me a place to start.
I have ubuntu 11.04 installed. I have a D-link USB Wireless Adapter. Ubuntu detected it and it worked fine. I have a Beetel 450TC1 Router which broadcasts my internet connection. Ubuntu recognizes it, and keeps on trying to connect.It asks me for Authentication again and again.( Don't tell me to check the password again, it does work on everything else )And its not the router problem also, as I tried broadcasting through a laptop I have, Ubuntu again detected but couldn't connect and kept asking me for Authentication
I am running -current on an ASUS eeePC 1000HE. Wireless was working fine up until the time I applied the latest changes from the Slack -current tree, which upgraded wpa_supplicant. Now, no networks are detected.
I looked at some related threads here and did some basic checking: neither the eth1 nor wlan0 interfaces show up in iwconfig or ifconfig output. Am afraid I am still a wireless dunderhead and don't know where to start troubleshooting this issue.
I have configured a wireless pcmcia card using ndiswrapper. I'm sure that works, as with the command "iwlist wlan0 scan" gives me back the list of detected wireless networks. At this point I was wondering: is there a way to detect the new interface (wlan0) with network manager? Even after enabling the wifi card the network manager gnome applet always finds only eth0.
I've been looking through the Debian wiki, searching past topics in the forum, and generally googling, but all to no avail. I'm unable to connect to the internet through any wireless connections, nor through an ethernet cable. I installed the latest weekly image of Debian squeeze. After installation, I found myself on the command line. I installed gnome with
apt-get install gnome-desktop-environment I also tried installing gnome-applets, gnome-netstatus-applet, and gnome-nettool, but I guess they were already installed. When I open System > Administration > Network in Gnome, there's no connections tab in the Network Settings application.
Here's what I think is the relevant portion of lspci -v

I'm one of those people migrating from Ubuntu and in Ubuntu I had to add a 'rfkill -unblock all' command to my rc.local file for this laptop. Not sure if that's relevant, but thought more info couldn't hurt.
