I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on a Gateway M520 laptop, and after failing to get the Broadcom wireless chip that came with it working I swapped it out for an Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get wireless to work. The chip doesn't appear to be turned on (it is detected though), and the hotkey to switch wireless on/off (Fn+F2) doesn't work in Ubuntu. I also am not sure if I have the proper drivers to get the chip working with Ubuntu, and I'm not sure how to figure that out.
Since I've noticed it's asked for a lot, here's the output for iwconfig:
lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. eth2 radio off ESSID:off/any Mode:Managed Channel:0 Access Point: Not-Associated
I was trying to update the drivers for my wireless card and it no longer works. I have a cisco pcmcia card that I got working to use as a backup, but I would prefer to use my internal card. The card is the Intel Pro 2200BG. Please let me know what information is needed to diagnose and correct this issue. I am relatively new to Linux (Currently using F10) and trying to learn.This is the iwconfig from my cisco card. The Intel card was working fine yesterday. but now doesn;t even show up.

I have an old Toshiba Satellite A30 Notepad. I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 onto it and everything but WiFi works. I've installed wicd and several other network tools but just can't get Ubuntu to let me use the WiFi connection (the option is greyed out).I know the card works because the last OS (Windows XP) used it without any problems. The card is detected, the drivers are installed and the hardware (slider) switch is set to on.I think the issue is related to the Radio Frequency Kill Switch being on but I don't know how to turn it off.The output from various commands are:
I have Dell 1537 laptop having Intel 5100 wireless card. It is not supported by Fedora 9. I have tried downloading the driver iwlwifi-5000-ucode-188.8.131.52.tgz from URL...Downloads and copied it to folder /lib/firmware and rebooted the machine. But still it is not detected by the system. Is there any solution to this problem .
I recently formatted an old Dell D600 and installed 9.10 on a single partition. It connects to my Airport just fine hardwired, but I have had no success getting the IntelPro/Wireless 2200BG card to talk wireless. I've entered the SSID and WPA2 security ID with no success.
Are Intel wireless cards compatible with non-intel-based laptops? In my case I wish to upgrade the current Atheros-based mini pci express wifi card with the Intel 4965agn. It is an Asus 4520 with an AMD Athlon X2 processor and nvidia nForce chipset.
I have an Acer Laptop and I am trying to use Linux Redhat 5 on it but for some reason the NIC is not detected by Linux. It is a bit surprising to me that the same problem was seen in my desktop computer but after changing the NIC to a different slot the Linux OS detected the NIC and it is working fine but my laptop still has the same problem.
From troubleshooting point of view:
1. Installed Linux multiple times but it didn't work. 2. Tried to add the hardware (NIC) but it didn't work.
Note: The NIC was working fine when I first installed Linux but after sometime it didn't. The laptop is dual boot (Windows & Linux) when I boot via windows the NIC works fine but not with Linux.

I install RHEL 5.1 on my system. But my Ethernet card is not detected. I found my Ethernet card is of "ATTANSIC Technology corp L1 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter(rev b0). I already downloaded the driver. Someone tell me step by step process, how to install this driver over RHEL 5.1.
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 184.108.40.206 so how can rebuild it?
I just came to know that we can also use HP MC Servicegaurd for clustering in Linux environment too. I did some google but could not found much info about the packages and all. Can I use HP MC Servicegaurd with RHEL/CentOS on 32 Bit Linux on Intel Machines? Is the rpm (or tar ball) of HP MC Servicegaurd freely available? I just wanted to use it for learning purpose.
I can't seem to get a screen on my Asus Netbook 1005pe. I did install the xf86-video-intel-2.10.0-i486-1.txz & kubdrn-2.4.17-i486-1.txz.I'm also having a Kernel Modesetting issue. Below is my Xorg.conf file & my Xorg.0.log file. Sorry if I am not explaining myself correctly.

4 ) what you have tried to rectify the problem.
Tried to install all the patches.
5 ) any trouble-shooting guide you have tried to follow. - The previous two stickies

I have searched and have not found anything specific to my issue. I am currently using NDISWrapper to load the bcmwl15 driver and when it's active it works beautifully.Problem is sometimes at boot, the card doesn't "turn on" and I don't know how else to describe it. The OS does not even detect that the hardware is present. I have disabled wireless hotkey in BIOS. The only way to make the wireless card "active" is to reboot with the wiredconnection to the router. After doing that the wireless card "wakes up" and works awesome.Is there anything I can do to make sure the driver load at boot?mes I get the error that NDISWrapper is not modprobbed when I go to network configuration and if I wish to do i now? I don't know if that has anything to do with the boot sequence. Using the <modprobe ndiswrapper> command as root does nothing permanant
I have an intel 5300 wireless chipset which is not supported in kernel 2.6.25. I am currently using opensuse 11.0, I downgraded from 11.1 since I faced so many other problems. can I setup my wireless driver under kernel 2.6.25? if so, how could i do this?
I have lenovo thinkpad, T61 with Intel 4965AGN wireless card. It is a N card, it works under N mode in windwos, but not in Ubuntu (10.10). I installed ndiswrapper and got the windows xp drivers for this card. the issue is that i got an error when installing the drivers and since then I cannot use wireless.
The error i got is: Code: Module could not be loaded. Error was: FATAL: Could not read '/lib/modules/2.6.35-24-generic/kernel/ubuntu/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko': No such file or director I unistalled the driver, but now under network connections no wireless connections appear, nothing. I cannot use wirless anymore.
I am running openSUSE 11.3 updated with all the latest patches and I cannot connect to my wireless router. I am running Linux Mint 10 on the same type of notebook HP Compaq 6910p and it worked right after the install. If I take off the security WPA & WPA2 Personal I can connect. lspci -v | less shows this for my wireless card.

I am using the same settings for both notebooks just can't figure out why openSUSE 11.3 won't connect. I get the prompt to key in my password, I've even checked the box to show password to make sure I was keying it in correctly. Everything was good but it just goes right back to the password prompt after it fails trying to connect.
I'm releaving a HP Probook 4710S from it's native Vista) First of all let me say I'm happy because CentOs 5.6 handles it's Ati Radeon graphic flawlessly, unlike other Distro's I tried on this type of machine. So thumbs up for CentOs! But now I've come to a stop on the wireless card.
I recently bought and installed the Trendnet TEW423PI. Running ubuntu 10.10I downloaded ndiswrapper and it tells me:net8185 Hardware present: yesYet,cannot connect to the internet wirelessly.How do I go about setting this up?What do I need to type in the terminal
I clicked "Network Settings", and I found that the ip address was wrong, which is "192.168.1.10/24", and netmask field is empty, so I modifed the configuration file located in /etc/sysconfig/network, named ifcfg-wlan0, added one line(NETMASK= '255.255.255.0'), saved it and reboot the system. After rebooting the system, I still found the ip address is wrong and netmask field is empty, so I have to use ifup command to activate my card manually every time the system starts.
Wireless worked fine on live cd, but for some reason not after install. I think maybe the driver is not loading, but I am a pretty much still a noob, so my opinion isn't worth much. If it is the driver not loading, I don't know what to do to fix it. Here is my wireless output information.

The wireless on my 64-bit openSUSE-11.2 installed on my Dell Studio 1537 laptop stopped working some time back (possibly more than a one or two months back). I just discovered this last week when on business. I have not used the wireless under openSUSE-11.2 for a while so I am not certain what broke it, but I am suspicious of an update. I note openSUSE-11.3 milestone-7 works great with the wireless (on a liveCD). I note possibly two related threads, although I note no failed request for firmware in my case:request for firmware file 'iwlwifi-5000-2.ucode' failed [INTEL 5300 AGN] [OPENSUSE 11.2] - openSUSE Forums, and I see another thread here: Suddenly No Wireless Network Card - openSUSE Forums... but I can not tell if what I have is the same problem, so I did not add to those threads. In my case I can scan for the network, and see the SSID. An ip address is assigned. But a ping does not work.
Some details, the wireless is:

I know the router wireless network is good, because I can connect to the router via wireless with another laptop (old Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo 7400M with older Intel wireless), and the router wireless also works with this Dell Studio 1537 PC (with same hardware) but with openSUSE-11.3 milestone7 version.
