Hardware :: Intel Wifi Link 5100 In Ubuntu 10.04 Not Connecting
Jun 14, 2010
I have seen tons of threads on the internet about Ubuntu 10.04 having wireless issues but none of them have lead to me fixing the problem so I decided to come here. I have been able to connect to access points before but sometimes I have to reboot or reboot twice just to be able to see the wireless points and the enable wireless is always greyed out. And if I am connected to an AP or hardwire the connection drops frequently.
I have only had a few weeks worth of experience with linux, so I'm probably considered a newbie at this but I felt like giving it a shot. I just configured my new Toshiba Satellite A505-S6969 to jaunty. Most of the transition is going well but I'm stuck with a few issues, one of which is getting my wifi to work. Right now I'm working off of an ethernet cable.spci returns

I'm trying to get my Dell Latitude work with wifi speed >54Mbit/s, and up to now without any success. The router is a Dlink DIR-635, it has 'n' enabled and working (got an apple laptop connecting at 130Mbit/s, can't test the actual throughput though, since it's the only high-speed device).
Here's the device data:
0c:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation WiFi Link 5100 Subsystem: Intel Corporation WiFi Link 5100 AGN Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 43 Memory at f1ffe000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K] Capabilities: [c8] Power Management version 3 Capabilities: [d0] MSI: Enable+ Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
I'm running 11.4, added the compat-wireless recently to be able to run the newes firmware (iwlwifi-5000-5.ucode , firmware version 18.104.22.168 build 33692), but still all I get is 54Mbit/s. I'd like to know if ANYONE ever got the 802.11n speed on linux, and in particular with these intel cards.
I've got a Dell precision with Kubuntu 9.10. Wifi worked fine on that machine for months, but stopped working last week. I don't know what happened, but I recently did an "apt-get dist-upgrade". That might have something to do with it.
I moved to Berlin recently and I got wireless internet through an access point. I'm supposed to use the laptop's built-in wireless netcard to access the internet. This usually works in windows (connection falls out from time to time), but I have yet to make it work in linux. I'm using OpenSuse 11.3 64-bit and the Knetwork manager. Most of the settings in the network manager are correct, but it keeps wanting to use system certificates for the server. By that I mean it keeps checking 'Use CA System certificates'.
So I can't choose the CA-certificate supplied by my internet provider. I keep removing the check-mark and pointing it to the 'hotzoneCA.der' certificate. I also got a 'personal' certificate, in lack of a better word. Its called 'jacob_collstrup.p12'. The Knetwork manager seems to accept the 'jacob_collstrup.p12' certificate, but not the other one.
I just put the certificates in a folder like this /jacob/home/hotzone/zertifikate/ I can see the network fine using the Knetwork manager, and the signal strength seems ok. Not too good, but it shouldn't be a problem. I might have messed up the system, since I first tried this guide, prior to experimenting with Knetwork Manager:
1. (had to run this one as su) Code: wpa_supplicant -w -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dndiswrapper -dd �t 2. (This was supposed to be put in a wpa_supplicant.conf file) Code: ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant ctrl_interface_group=0 opensc_engine_path=/usr/lib/opensc/engine_opensc.so pkcs11_engine_path=/usr/lib/opensc/engine_pkcs11.so pkcs11_module_path=/usr/lib/pkcs11/opensc-pkcs11.so
i'd like to extend that ma intel wifi link 5100 is not detected no more after perform upgrade package( upgrade the kernel too ). when im using command 'lshw -C network' , there is appear to be detected, but not on command 'iwconfig' or even 'ifconfig' it just show nothin. also network-manager no longer show that ma wireless is work properly anymore.
the old kernel : 2.6.25-22 ( my wireless detected and usable ) the new kernel : 2.6.25-23 ( my wireless detected and unusable )
Intel wifi link 5100 not found on sony vaio backtrack 4 vmware I use vmware to load backtrack I have a sony vaio with 5100 AGN wifi card installed in it. I had tried anything to make my wifi work but always show no interface no wireless. I googled it for help for weeks and all i get was download the iwlwifi things and i already installed in it. i even tried many other thing
and everytime i type ifconfig it just show eth and lo and no wlan0 in it everytime i type airmon-ng there are no chipset interface and ...........thing (forgot) I could find my wireless card name when i type ilg... something i forgot The problem is,i think my linux doesn't reconize the card even i have installed the driver Anything that i can do to make my linux reconize wifi link 5100 agn wireless card?
I am running (K)Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 64bit on a Dell Latitude E6400, WiFi Card Intel 5100. Never had any problems with networking. Up to about 2 weeks ago. I do realize there have been quite a few posts with this network adaptor, but non really described the problem I have here.
What happens is that suddenly the WiFi LED on the computer stops blinking, the WiFi connection gets disrupted, and the device is not recognized anymore when checking ifconfig. Only cold restarting the machine helps then... it will work for a while (between 1 and 20 minutes) and then crash again.
On Windows 7 the card works perfectly fine. With Ubuntu 11.04 in Live CD mode I have the same effects (connection crashes after a while). Also tried booting an older kernel, no success.
My exact hardware:
I notived the following problems in /var/log/kern.log
For some reason I don't understand SUSE tells me there are no network devices available. I've checked for any 'firmware' and 'kill' in both boot.msg and hardware information. I've got an ACER Aspire 8935G with WiFi Link 5100 (Intel). The only info I found that could point to the reason is:
There is one more thing that could be related: I've got some touch-buttons to the left of the keyboard that turn wifi and bluetooth on/of. The bluetooth one works, but nothing happens if I press the wifi one.
I also know that this hardware worked on fedora 11 and 12, so it's probably only a matter of settings/additional packages. If you respond, please keep in mind I can't use any internet connection-based commands, as the system doesn't accept the hardware responsible for cable connections either. I can download files if needed.
I have backtrack 4 on vmware player.i have intel (R) wifi 5100 agn wireless card and when i type airmon-ng there is nothing shown on interface..and i have been told i need kernel rebuild..i have kernel 22.214.171.124 so how can rebuild it?
I just did a dual boot with OpenSuSE 11.2 and Windows 7. They both work perfect but for some reason the wireless (intel wifi 5100 AGN) and my wired network card (Atheros AR8131 Gigabyte controller)do not work in opensuse. Now the problem is that I do not have a clue about linux and therefore I don't know how to fix the problem. I searched the forum and I tried these commands "sudo /sbin/ifdown eth0" and "sudo /sbin/ifup wlan0" and both says something like device not connected/present (can't remeber exactly).
I'm using a Vaio TT, which seems to use an Intel 5100 WiFi chipset, and a Linksys WRT54G2 (firmwares 1.0.1 and 1.0.4), ubuntus 10.10 and 10.04.
Wifi works fine out of the box. However if the other vaio tt in our office (running windows 7) comes online, my laptop stops being able to make new connections. It WILL stay connected to chat servers, and downloads SOMETIMES continue to work. However all new HTTP requests / ssh connections / rdp connections / pings fail. The laptop still appears to be "connected" to the wifi network.
This may also happen after an undetermined amount of time without the extra vaio. It is not solved by reconnecting or rebooting. Once the extra vaio leaves the building, everything works fine again. This problem does not happen at all if I boot into windows.
EDIT 6 Dec: More detailed log from wpa_supplicant I'm using Ubuntu Studio 10.10 x64. I want to get wireless networking going manually. My wireless networking works successfully in Windows 7 x64. I can get it working successfully without encryption but when I try and use WPA-PSK, wpa_supplicant gets stuck in a loop between GROUP_HANDSHAKE and COMPLETED, as shown in the log below.
I've been working mostly off the instructions in this post: [URL]... My laptop is a Dell Studio 1537. It has an Intel Wifi 5100. I'm connecting to a F5D7633-4 router running F5D7633-4Av1_UK_1.00.010 firmware, which is the latest version of the firmware I can find. When I set up WPA, it uses encryption technique TPIK. The other generic information is

The funny thing is that it works fine in a Fedora installation, which has an older kernel and older drivers, on the same laptop. The fact that the indicator light doesn't come in when the physical switch is turned on suggests it's something to do with that switch.
Have been using Ubuntu Desktop Amd64 for 6months, on a dual boot alongside Vista64. Since first installing the OS, I have switched over to Ubuntu & use Windows only for heavy multimedia edition & the occasional gaming.I just bought a netbook and installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS NBR. Works great, except for wlan. No propriety drivers available for my Intel Wifi Link 1000BGN.
I've spent hours trying to install iwlwifi, but the process is somewhat complicted for a noob such as myself.After much reading and trying, I've managed to download and install iwlwifi-1000-ucode-126.96.36.199.tgz, (following the http://intellinuxwireless.org/?p=iwl...=howto-iwlwifi instructions)and am now working on installing the mac80211 subsystem (following the http://intellinuxwireless.org/?p=mac...howto-mac80211 instructions)When running
I just installed Fedora 15 yesterday and can't get wi-fi to work. When I click 'on' on the Wireless label, it goes back to 'off' immediately. When I open the Network Settings menu and disable Airplane mode, the Wireless connection goes on and then off immediately. I took a look at /var/log/messages and it shows this:
I'm dual booting windows 7 64 bit and Ubuntu 10.1 64 bit on my Dell Inspiron 11z with an embedded WiMAX/WiFi Link 6050 series wireless card made from Intel. I only use it for wifi, not 3g or wimax. I installed the latest driver from intellinuxwireless.org, iwlwifi-6050-ucode-188.8.131.52, but it still doesn't seem to work. I ran these terminal commands from another thread:
cd Desktop/wlwifi-6050-ucode-184.108.40.206 sudo cp iwlwifi-6050-4.ucode /lib/firmware sudo chmod 644 /lib/firmware/iwlwifi*
After running "sudo rmmod -f iwlagn sudo modprobe iwlagn", I get this read out for my wireless card.

In the ubuntu help section it tells me to flip a manual wifi switch to enable it, but pressing my windows wifi button, F2, doesn't appear to do anything while in ubuntu. The only experience I have working with linux is typing some terminal commands on my android phone to root it.
I'm a Linux newbie. Used to use Ubuntu, but I switched to Slackware because I want to learn how Linux works better.
On my Samsung qx410 laptop, I can't connect to the internet. I went to the System Settings -> Network Settings and all the tabs there, but it wouldn't detect any connection, wireless nor wired.
I noticed that the kernel of Slackware 13.1 is out of date, so I tried compiling a newer one, but I couldn't get that to work.
I tried downloading this file: iwlwifi-6050-ucode-220.127.116.11.tgz but even after reading the readme, I had no clue how to go about installing it or even whether it was the right thing to install in the first place.
i have an Acer aspire 4920 laptop with opensuse11.3 installed and wifi card has identified home wifi, but for some reason when i enter the wpa-psk key it doesnt connect.i have been at this problem for several days and scanning the net for answers, without joy.i dont know about the command or terminal line, i have tried to type in commands but i get no joy.
I have an IBM ThinkPad W700 running 64 bit Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala. At the office I normally connect it to the Ethernet since it's never connected very reliably to the wifi there (drops out 2 or 3 times per day, usually at the worst possible time, of course), but it always worked just fine with Netgear WGR614v5 at home... until a week or two ago.
I used to be able to come home, take the laptop out of suspend mode, and it would connect to the wifi. Occasionally there'd be some hitch and I'd have to restart the network manager (sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager restart) but this was only sometimes, and when I did, it'd always work. But now, when I get home from work, I need to restart the entire system to get it to connect properly again. Without restarting the whole system, it either doesn't scan for wifi networks, it doesn't find any wifi networks, it keeps stuffing up my wifi password, or it connects and gets 0% signal.
Presumably, some driver was updated recently and it doesn't work so well. What's the easiest way to find out what drivers have been updated lately, and revert to a previous version? And what else can I try restarting so I don't have to restart the entire system? I've tried /etc/init.d/network-manager restart, /etc/init.d/networking restart, /etc/init.d/network-interface restart, and restart network-manager. I've also tried turning the wireless switch at the front of the laptop off and on, many times.
The info above is when I've taken my laptop out of suspend mode and it won't connect to the network. lsmod doesn't say anything about wifi nor wireless; iwlist does see my network, which my older Januty laptop is connected to without drama.
I've reinstalled Slackware 4 times today because of things I've messed up along my way, after upgrading the linux kernel I've had issues with getting back to desktop, so I'm on a clean slate right now with the exception of installing wicd. I need help since wireless is not working.. My wireless worked fine out of the box with Ubuntu,I don't understand why it is not working now... Using Slackware 13.1, Kernel 18.104.22.168
bash-4.1# ifconfig wlan0 up SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
In simple, I have tried everything I can find on this issue, but I am still unable to get it working on my HP DV4 laptop. My laptop has a Intel 5100 wireless card, and it always says that wireless is disabled. Ive tried booting with the wireless switch off, with it on, ive reinstalled the driver and did everything in a post I found here (cant find a link) that basicly had me reinstall the driver from intels site, then reload the network manager, to no prevail. Im running ubuntu 10.4.1 (just installed), and this is really a big issue 4 me.
how to set up wireless networks. The technical language is foreign to me. My notebook maybe described as follows:
Make and Model: SONY VAIO FW490 Processor: Intel� Core™ 2 Duo Processor P8700 (2.53GHz) RAM: 4GB DDR2-SDRAM Graphics card: ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD4650 graphics card with 512MB vRAM.
It came pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Premium but now I have Fedora 11 (w/ Gnome) as the only OS. The router that I am using with an Ethernet cable connected to my laptop is a Netgear 54Mbps Wireless Router WGR614 v7 connected to a Motorola Surfboard Cable Modem. Both worked right out of the box and now I have wired Internet access. RCN is my ISP. I would like to avoid using the Ethernet cable connecting my laptop to the router.
This is what I have done so far:
1. Gone to System>Administration>Network
2. Clicked "New" then chose "Wireless connection" from the list
3. Chose Intel Corp. Wireless WiFi Link 5100 (wlan0) from list. The other option was "Other Wireless Card".
I don't know what to do after this. What should I choose in the windows entitled "Configure Wireless Connection" and "Configure Network Settings" ? I chose Ad-Hoc for mode and entered an SSID name even though I have no explanation for taking these actions. As for the other settings, I simply went with whatever was already selected. At the moment, I lose Internet access when I disconnect the Ethernet cable. I see other wireless networks when I click the network icon on the top right corner of the screen. I don't know how to make my router appear on that list if that's necessary.
