Ubuntu Networking :: HP EliteBook 8730w/ Intel Ultimate 5300 Network - Grep 'Wireless Brand'Does Not Show Anything

Jan 21, 2011

Ive installed Ubuntu recently but none of my attempts to get the wifi network working were successfull. It establishes connection but the indicator shows no signal and I cant connect to any website, I tried pinging external IPs etc. None of these worked. lspci -nn | grep 'Wireless Brand'Does not show anything. I could find 03:00:0 Network Controller: Intel Corporation Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300 lsmod | grep "wlan_module_name"Doesnt show anything. Restarting network says only: *Reconfiguring network interfaces... Kernel boot messages:


The network Im trying to connect to is hidden, so I have to input SSID manually, I doubt this causes the problem.

General :: Can't Enable Wireless Again After Disabling It By Accident

Oct 13, 2010

My Acer notebook has a button that can disable the wireless network device when pressed. Since it is near the ESC key, sometimes I press it on accident, especially when editing something with Vim. When I press the wireless switch to enable the device again, nothing happens. Using the command ifconfig wlan0 up results in the following error:

SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown error 132

Rebooting and logging on linux again didn't solve anything. I had to log into windows. The device started out disabled, then pressing the button reenabled the device. I'd like to be able either to reenable wireless at will, or outright disable the wireless switch button.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Unable To Enable Wireless On Laptop Even Though It's Not Grayed Out

Mar 30, 2011

I am using OpenSuse 11.4(32 bit) on my Lenovo B460 laptop, and as the title points, am unable to use wireless on it. The 'enable wireless' option from icon menu is not greyed out, however clicking it does nothing, it remains disabled.

lspci -vv shows:

"04:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)
Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device 0510
Control: I/O- Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR+ FastB2B- DisINTx-


so it seems that opensuse knows my hardware but networkmanager doesn't! I have all broadcom packages installed as well as kernel-firmware installed.

Ubuntu Networking :: HP Pavilion Wireless Enable/Disable Button / "Wireless Disabled By Hardware Switch"?

May 11, 2011

I've had a host of problems since upgrading to 11.04 Natty Narwhal, so let's deal with these 1 at a time.

I've got a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G60 laptop. Next to the power button is a handy wireless on/off button. This has always worked well with previous editions (9.04,through 10.10). first press toggles the wireless off, second press toggles it on.

Not so in 11.04. The toggle off works great, first time. But, it will not toggle back on. Not after any number of tries, not after restarting, not after booting into other OS's (9.10 and Vista) re-enabling it there and then booting back into Narwhal. to further complicate the issue, this feature bypass the network manager, so toggling the wireless off by the switch leaves me showing no wireless adapter in the network manager. I also restarted, switched from Unity to a Gnome session, but the issue still persists.

As my only network options are wireless, this has become a substantial inconvenience.
EDIT: so the network util is actually saying "wireless disabled by hardware switch". Also noticed it I enable it in 9.10, reboot to 11.04 (where I inevitably fail to re-enable it), then reboot into 9.10, it will initially be disabled. The key difference is in 9.10 I have the ability to enable wifi using the hardware button. It seems that 11.04 is remembering that wireless is disabled between boots. Is there a place it might be storing this value? If so, I may be able simply to set the value as enabled, since toggling that silly button isn't working.
found this thread:"Wireless disabled by hardware switch" bug? - Natty
seems to be a similar issue. I'll be following how that one develops, too.

Ubuntu :: Deluge WebUI Enable / Re-enable Subsequently Unable To Re-enable It (doesn't Appear In The Side Panel Again)?

Feb 10, 2010

I recently installed Deluge 1.2.0 from the following PPA:[URL]I using this on two different Linux computers. One is running Linux Mint 8 and the other is running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10. The first time on either computer when I enable WebUI in the Deluge GUI it works fine. However if I ever disable it in plugins section I am subsequently unable to re-enable it (doesn't appear in the side panel again). Rebooting or reinstalling Deluge seems to have no effect.Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Ubuntu Networking :: Does Not Enable Wireless / Why Is So?

Jan 14, 2011

I am a day old in ubuntu-world, and I am having internet issues. Yesterday, after i had installed ubuntu alongside windows 7. To begin with it did not detect wireless (not networks but wireless itself), so i figured it was something to do with the adapter and came to these forums where many things were suggested. none worked. So I restarted the system for good measure and lo and behold it detected wireless networks and connected to the internet almost immediately.

Now, after a day, when i have logged in to ubuntu again, there is no wireless detected. The same problem. When I right click on the network icon in the notification area i see that Enable Networking is checked but "Enable Wireless" is darkened. There is no way to check it.

Can anybody please advise as to what to do next. I am using ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx I believe).My system config is i7, 512MB ram.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Enable Wireless Driver

Jan 10, 2010

I installed the 4gb persistent version to a usb drive to use on a emachines netbook with 250gb hard drive. Everything worked great from USB had the wireless going and all. Decided to install it to the HDD, followed the steps at the Ubuntu start menu, install from USB. Followed all recommended procedures during install, split the HDD in Half (the only thing on there was windows 7 just bought this thing) at the partition window.

Ubuntu loads fine but when trying to load the wireless driver as before with the usb it doesnt activate. I have to enter in a password, it seems to accept it, a download screen comes up, I see keys going over to the wireless icon and....nothing.

Then tried to load up windows 7...uh oh. I see windows 7 and a windows vista os at the initial option screen. I selected windows 7 and it brought me back, so I selected windows vista and now it is having me recover. I chose the basic recovery first hoping it was due to moving the partition. It is recovering now but I am really worried if it's going to work again as windows 7, vista ?, wipe out Ubuntu or what!

Also, already rebooted Ubuntu a couple times, no luck with driver install

Ubuntu :: Wireless Disabled On Boot - Cannot Re-enable

May 21, 2010

I have recently installed 10.4 (wubi installation), and am having strange problems with my networking.

It was working fine, wireless enabled, connecting to my network fine. Then for what seems like no reason, it decided to disable the wirless on boot, and I cannot re-enable it, the option to enable it (by right clicking the nm applet) is greyed out.

I have had this problem twice now, the first time it happened, my ubuntu installation was really new, so I just reinstalled, no harm done. The second time I did something that seemed to fix it (for a while at least), but now that is not working.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Disabled - How To Re-enable

Aug 22, 2010

We're on vacation here with free wifi and I brought two laptops. The older of the two laptops running Ubuntu 10.04 and a Broadcom wireless chip suddenly wouldn't work this morning. I checked and it says wireless disabled, however wireless is grayed out when I right click on network manager. I have -no- idea what to do. I've never seen wireless just die like that. I popped open the cover but the wireless card is fine. I re-seated it, booted back up, still no sign of it.

What can I do?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Disabled / Enable This?

Sep 10, 2010

I updated from Ubuntu 9 to 10 some while ago and can no longer connect to the internet via wireless. The computer is a Medion 96290 with a USB wireless card. Running "lsusb" gives code...

This tells me a driver is installed but it may not be the correct one. I copied this driver from the Windows driver file.

Network Manager shows "Wireless Network" greyed out and "wireless is disabled".

WICD shows net8187b as the installed driver and that the hardware is present.

There is a wireless switch on the keyboard which it was not necessary to use in Ubuntu 9 and is inoperative in Ubuntu 10.

I have searched through and applied many suggestions without success and have posted this problem on a couple of forums, again without success.

Ubuntu Networking :: Enable Wireless On Startup?

Oct 8, 2010

I have been having some problems with my wireless connection. I am having to start my computer 2 times in order for my wireless connection to work. The first time I start up, even after I enable wireless it wont connect. If I reboot immediately and enable wireless it will then connect. I would like to be able to fix this problem since it has become really annoying to me to have to boot my computer 2 times every time I turn it on. BTW Network manager shows auto-connect, however it also shows i month ago as to the last time the connections were used.
