Jun 17, 2011

I tried to implement the solution given at: [URL] on a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop, running Ubuntu 11.04. However, I still can't connect to wifi.

I can see that the files were extracted inside /lib/firmware/ (I see a b43 and a b43 legacy folder).

The lspci -vnn | grep 14e4 returns:

Ubuntu Networking :: Install Drivers/firmware Because Presumably There Is No Out Of The Box Support

Sep 16, 2010

I'm a first time user of ubuntu and any other form of Linux. I decided to install ubuntu on an old Dell Latitude D600. The LAN controller is a Broadcom BCM4306 [14e4;4320] (rev 02). I honestly thought that once I installed ubuntu I would have no problem connecting to my wireless router. I was wrong.

A FAQ on this forum states that I need to install drivers/firmware because presumably there is no out of the box support. I read the FAQ [URL]..Debian and it seems that I need to get the driver/firmware then issue some command to put it where it needs to go.

Fedora Networking :: Broadcom BCM4310 - No Wifi After Fresh Install

Jun 27, 2009

I have had a search around, any cannot find any thing I can make sense of as to how I go about getting the above card to work with Fedora 11. Just done a fresh install (need Linux for some development) but have no wifi. My chipset is this Broadcom BCM4310. There seems to be a whole load of options, and I don't know which works and which don't:

kmod-wl
broadcom-wl
ndiswrapper

I can sit with an Ethernet cable to install/update as necessary, but really could do with wireless.

Debian Configuration :: 7.2.0 - Mount WiFi Device Just After Pushing Firmware

Jun 18, 2015

Working on Debian 7.2.0.

In a specific context I want to automatically make operationnal some USB WiFI devices, deploying automaticaly firwmare (may be not free packages) depending on device ID (vendor ID/product ID). Dev device is a Netgear WNA1000 (driver ath9k, with htc_9271.fw firmware).

I tried to reset the USB bus (modprobe -vr ehci_hcd; modprobe -v ehci_hcd) but it's not really reliable, with sometimes kernel panic.

Is there an "official" way to "mount" the device (the system create the device wlan0) just after deploying the firmware? Maybe using udev ?

Fedora Networking :: Replacing The Linksys WRT54G Firmware?

Apr 7, 2009

I just installed Cable internet in my apartment. Part of the deal was a free Router (a Belkin). Now I already had a router so now I have an extra, and I remembered something I wanted to try If I ever got an extra router.... I read somewhere, that you can replace the firmware of the Linksys WRT54G Router/Switch with a Linux-based firmware.

I want to try this, but I have some concerns. I'm worried about losing my WPA2 Encryption, and connection problems; I have two Linux laptops (Ubuntu, and Fedora 64 bit) which connect Wirelessly, a desktop w/ 64 Bit Fedora 10, and two Vista Desktops that connect via Ethernet. Will the multiple Operating Systems cause a problem?

Ubuntu Networking :: LinuxWiMAX - Firmware Installation - Modem Works Fine But Failing To Install Drivers

May 17, 2011

I switched from windows to Ubuntu 10.10. But I'm not getting along with it as well as I expected I would Specially cause I'm not getting the best out of it due to limited web connectivity. I used to use a usb WiMax modem back in windows (which is also supposed to be supported by linux as my service provider said) for internet. But I'm having a hard time configuring it on my Ubuntu. The modem works fine but I'm failing to install the drivers [url]. I used my cell as a temporary modem to get help from the web.

WiMAX Tools 1.4.5
WiMAX Network Service 1.5.2

According to the documentation, I'm supposed to install the linux kernel 2.6.35 which Maverick comes with anyway.

Then comes the part to install the firmware. The command I used was

But unfortunately and annoyingly the result is

I didn't get it. Am I missing any package or something?

Fedora Networking :: LAN Connection Is Not Active

Dec 24, 2009

First time I installed Fedora 12 and I am new to Linux OS completely. The LAN (ethernet) is coming by default and it's status is inactive. When I click on icon, it tries to connect and then shows status still as inactive. Where as my internet works in Win XP. What do I do for making it active. Second, when I try to install xDSL package for my BSNL broadband, the package is not available. Where do I get this package?

Fedora Networking :: Ethernet Will Not Become Active

Jan 5, 2011

Currently I am working at a college as a student worker, and one of the classes that needs to take place requires that Fedora 12 be installed. Now, this isn't greatly important, but so far on a few of the installs I cannot get the Ethernet device to actually become active. I've tried restarting the computer, reinstalling Fedora 12, and going into the actual network area to click on "Activate" but it is grayed out. So currently, a few machines cannot connect to the internet - including the professor station. I'm not entirely sure what to do here, since most other posts I have read reported that they were able to actually click on "Activate" and it would work.

Right now, the computers are connected to the internet. The jacks do work as they were tested with computers that are able to connect to the net themselves. These computers NICs do work too as we have separate hard-drives in them booting into XP, which do connect to the net without problem.Any help would be appreciated. If anymore information is required, please let me know. I'll do my best to provide you with this information.

Networking :: Fedora 13 NIC Not Active At Boot

Jun 15, 2010

Most of my experience configuring network settings has been through various GUI tools available in GNOME and KDE. I have some older hardware that will not run KDE or GNOME and I am trying to configure the NIC. I have installed Webmin to try to configure the interface, and it does fine for setting a static address or DHCP address, but the interface (eth0) is not active at boot.

As soon as I run ifup eth0, it will use the assigned IP or pull DHCP based on settings, but I can't seem to get it to automatically activate at boot. And yes, /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 does have ONBOOT=yes set. I need two things...

1 - are there any good cli tools, ncurses or such like netcfg I can install to manage the interface (I have tried the network manager cli tools, maybe I just don't get it, but that isn't working so good for me)

2 - how to make the interface activate at boot.

Fedora Networking :: Keep Connection To Router Always Active?

Aug 20, 2010

Most of the time when I go back to my computer, eth0 has disconnected if left overnight or several hours, and takes around 30 secs to reconnect to my router, finding it a little annoying as the reason I leave the computer on is for quick access to the internet.My computer is connected to the router via an ethernet cable.Used Mandriva and Windows XP on this same hardware for awhile and never came across this.How do I keep the connection to the router active?

Fedora Networking :: Connection Eth0 Never Active On Boot

Jul 16, 2011

I am trying to sort out some issues following an upgrade from F12.

I have eth0 as the connection I want to use. Prior to the upgrade, this connection was enabled and active at boot.

Now, for some reason after the upgrade it has to be manually enabled at every boot - even though when I go the Network tool, Ethernet Device > General tab - "Activate device when computer starts" is checked.

At every boot time it is inactive.

In all the ifcft-eth0 files, the ONBOOT parameter is set to "yes".

Fedora Networking :: Auto Eth1 Active But Cannot Browse Internet

Nov 8, 2010

A couple of days ago I Obtained a spare computer and installed fedora 14 on it, just to try it out. I only have experience with microsoft windows so I'm new to this system. The OS seems to work fine but I can't browse the internet with firefox. I'm using a speedtouch 546 v6 modem with adsl(wired). The network manager indicates that the wired connection "auto eth1" is active. The previous OS was windows xp. I was able to browse the internet whit this OS. I removed it because it was crashing all the time (illegal version).

OpenSUSE Network :: Keep WiFi Internet While A PC-to-PC Ethernet Network Is Active?

Jan 31, 2011

I often use an Ethernet cable to connect my computer to another computer for various purposes. But when I do that, I cannot use the internet even though I'm still connected to a WiFi access point. I'm presuming that's because openSUSE is trying to reach the internet through the Ethernet cable, which has precedence over WiFi.Is there a way to enable internet usage via WiFi while I'm connected to another computer over Ethernet?

Ubuntu Networking :: Install Usb Wifi Adapter

May 28, 2010

I started yesterday off wanting to install this USB wifi adapter on my PC (which is mini-itx so has additional pci slots) [URL] it has the Ralink 3070 chipset. I tried everything I found when googling, nothing came close to working, this was in Fedora12. So I gave up and installed Ununtu 10.04, hoping for better luck there. Ubuntu will recognise the presence of a wifi adapter, here's the output from iwconfig

[Code]....

But it sees no wifi networks and generally won't do anything; I don't think it has the right driver. Rosewill does list a (linux) driver and so does Ralink, but again, neither of these come close to working. has anyone gotten this adapter or chipset to work in ubuntu?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Only Works Once After Install?

Jun 12, 2011

just joined the forum so I am a little lost. I am trying to get my wifi to work on an HP Pavilion tx 1115nr (tx1000 series). I am using Ubuntu 10.04 desktop, my network card is BCM4311 rev1.I have read many threads and tried about everything, but I am so close. I can load bcmwl-kernel-source from the software center, restart and my wifi works for that startup. If I restart my computer again, it no longer works. I can then remove bcmwl-kernel-source and reinstall it and it works just once again.I have blacklisted b43 and ssblsmod reveals that these modules are missing after restart when wifi doesn't work:

arc4
lib80211
lib80211_crypt_tkip

[code]....
