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-184.108.40.206.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 have Ubuntu 10.10 on a thinkpad X201. Wireless was working, but has stopped. It still works in windows, so it is not a hardware problem. iwlist wlan0 scan sees the available networks, but I cannot associate with any of them, including my own.
Last night was my first attempt to connect to a secured network, and nm-applet failed to make the connection even after entering the WEP encryption key and SSID. By turning networking off in nm-applet I was able to manually bring up the connection by editing /etc/network/interfaces and using ifup wlan0. (nm-applet seemed to be interfering as long as networking was turned on there.) Wireless was working perfectly until I rebooted. Now I can't get it to work at all. (There were some partially completed security updates which completed when I rebooted. I hope this wasn't the cause of the breakdown.)I notice that wpa_supplicant is always running. I tried killing it in case it might be interfering with the connection process, but something keeps restarting it.
I'm running Linux 11.04 and my wireless network was working just fine until today. I cannot connect to WiFi - it acts as if the device wasn't there. The hardware switch led isn't working. No matter how much clicking on it, it won't work.
lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSIDff/any Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=14 dBm
I've noticed that my wifi connection is significantly slower than my wired connection. Obviously wired is always faster, but when I boot in to windoze or use Mac, the difference between wired and wifi is negligible. I'm running Debian 8 testing on a Lenovo X201 with Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 [Condor Peak] network card.
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 have a router that is 1000 Base T and two computers each with ethernet cards that support 1000 Base T. All are equipped with Cat 5e cable. Before I had a router that only went up to 100 Base T and I would setup one box with linux running proftpd. On the other box,I would use win xp pro and use firefox to ftp into the other box and download a file. Download speeds went up to 11.2 MB/sec. Now when I switched routers, I expected something like 120 MB/sec but I'm only getting 5.3 MB/sec. What do I need to change?
I'm operating a server running Slackware 12.1 and I need to install a PCI-E 10/100/1000 NIC, im just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a card that has solid support under linux or is otherwise known working.
I am having trouble establishing a connection with my WPA wireless network at home. Other laptops at home can connect to this network and even the Eee PC can join free wifi networks. The problem seems to be only with WPA networks. When I enter the password for the WPA network, it tries to connect for a while and then shows me the password dialog box again. I don't get any IP during this time, its always 0.0.0.0 I reinstalled my Ubuntu netbook remix but that didn't help. This problem was occurring in the standard Ubuntu 10.04 too.
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 am trying to get the RT2860 card in an Eee PC 1000 to work. I have tried Ubuntu 8.04 and 9.10, all the "fixes" below I can find on the web but nothing seems to work.
[URL] I downloaded the source code from Ralink and using module-assistant followed the instructions.
I can see the wireless network, it tries to connect but just keeps asking for the security key. I have tried WEP, WPA and no security at all but still no go. All works fine if wired. The F2 toggle seems to work OK, the WLAN is switched on in the BIOS. The "iwconfig" command shows the RT2860 in Ubuntu 9.10 but not in Ubuntu 8.04.
I have a few computers on my home network and I want to get them running at 1000Mbs Both my Ubuntu Machine and my Mac already have the hardware to run at that speed but my switch is 100Mbs so I am going to buy a new 1000Mbs switch. Do I need to change any settings in Ubuntu 9.10 to allow for 1000Mbs networking?
I have two onboard gigabit connections and a PCI-E gigabit card, none of which seem to want to run beyond 100M. Everytime I issue the command to change speed to 1000M, it does nothing. I have tried modifying the interfaces file to make sure the command line for ethtool gets done automatically, but still no luck.
Below is the output from the use of ethtool to change speed. Since I am having performance issues with my local area networking (e.g. Samba transferring slower than the internet), I have been trying to figure out how to debug my network performance, and this was an obvious thing that stood out. The router and card are gigabit, yet don't use their full transfer rates.
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.04 and the wireless connection on my Asus EeePC 1000HE is not working. Network is seen but connection is always rejected and pops up the dialog requesting my password. Password is entered properly and using proper protocol (WPA2) Network is working perfectly under Windows 7 and Fedora.
I use ubuntu netbook for an eee pc 1000h because windows is underpowered. I got it working perfectly in 10.04. I upgraded to 10.10 thinking, if they got it right with 10.04 then surely 10.10 should be fine. All function keys except wireless work.
1. After sleep, wireless turns off. Have to restart and re-enable in bios. 2. If I disable and the re-enable wireless networking it tries to connect but never does resulting in a reboot needed. Checking bios wireless is enabled and connects perfectly on reboot.
Just don't close the lid and sleep because you need a restart. Why would 10.04 be easy and the new version fail? I am windows user and linux does not do this kind of thing normally. MS screws things up with upgrades not linux surely.
Code: 03:00.0 Network controller : Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1000 [8086:0083] On Fedora 15, when I boot kernel 2.6.40, my laptop is unable to connect to my wireless-G AP. dmesg shows the following: Code: [ 43.866090] wlan0: direct probe to 00:27:19:14:c2:ca (try 1/3)
It works fine, however, when I boot using kernel 2.6.38 (from which I am posting) and in Windows. Also, I found some emails from the linux-wireless mailing list which appear to be talking about the same problem.
The system is fully updated. I've tried the 11n_disable=1 hint I came across on the ThinkPad wiki, but it didn't help. (I'm on an Asus K42Ja, in case it's relevant)
Although I'm fine with staying at 2.6.38 for now, are there workarounds/fixes for this?
I installed the netbook version of ubuntu 10. Problem is no wireless networks show up. So I have an eternet connecting. Only problem is when I plug that in, still no internet. I need to download drivers to make the wireless work.
I've already got the b43-fwcutter package and a driver called 'b43' appears in System > Administration > Hardware Drivers but it does not seem to enable. Another, Broadcom STA wireless driver, does enable, but I'm not picking up the wireless signal.
I recently had my AE 1000 linksys wireless adapter driver installed, the info for which can be found here:
But today I was presented with 142 automatic updates already downloaded waiting to be installed on my computer. I installed the updates and restarted my computer for the updates to take effect. Well, since then my wireless adapter no longer registers at all, it doesn't even recognize my router let alone connect to it. It is as inoperable as the day I got it.
I am currently using a different computer in the house to get internet. Should I go about following the same directions I did before and reinstall the driver, or is there a more simple way?
My Intel Corporation WiFi Link 1000 Series wireless card stopped working yesterday after I did an update via Update Manager.After the upgrade, wireless is disabled and the option to enable it in Network Manager is grayed out. I thought that it might be the new kernel, but changing back to the old kernel I still have the problem.
what should I add/change to set up port forwarding of port 1000 to ip 192.168.1.200. also how to get the answer sent by 192.168.1.200 follow the same route used by the data received through port forwarding.
I am so frustrated. I've gone through at least 20 distros in the last couple of days trying to find one that I like and will actually let me go online. I'm kinda bored of Gnome and want to try KDE again, but Knetworkmanager and even WICD don't let me get online. They recognize my wifi dongle, see the available networks, log me into them, tell me I'm connected and getting a good signal, but then I can't even ping Google! No pages will load. I've stumbled around all the network-managing and configuration screens, but nothing has worked.
Look, I'm clearly not a techie. I'm a happy end-user who's been exclusive with Mint for the last 2 years (PCLOS for a year before that) and I've never had to configure squat in either one of them, because they work perfectly out of the box. I'm not opposed to punching stuff into a terminal if it comes down to that, but I'd rather not have to...
Anyway, what can I do to fix this? (My wifi dongle works fine. I just tried it in Mint again.) For the record, the top three distros I'm considering are Sidux, Sabayon K and OpenSuse. I'm not getting internet on those. Ah, and the Mint KDE edition either.
I just bought an almost new netbook with the Ubuntu 9.10 netbook remix on it. It's made by System76 and was designed to work with Ubuntu. I downloaded Xubuntu-desktop and wicd and it now has a lot of software on it. It connects to the internet easily with a wired connection, but I cannot get it to find an ip address on my unencrypted home wireless network...it does see my network, though.I don't see the name of the hardware when I type sudo lspci. How can I find what chipset I have for my wireless device? A how to get online wirelessly?
I'm having trouble getting online, and therefore getting software, codecs etc, (I'm using another computer for this post) because the only option I have to connect to the web is through 56k dial-up modem, and this is apparently akward with ubuntu. I'm currently trying to work out how to get Ubuntu to recognize my modem. I have over-written Vista, which was previously on my laptop, although I did make recovery discs (though I really don't want to have to use them).
This is making it difficult for me to even find the model of my modem (it would involve reinstalling Vista and checking for the device under device manager, or Vista equivalent).I was advised to download the "Official Ubuntu documentation", and that this had a 'how to' section regarding dial-up modems. I downloaded it and searched it and found nothing as such. I also have downloaded the Ubuntu pocket guide and found nothing on the topic in it either.I can get online (via dial-up) on my XP machine, and also have USB storage sticks.
A couple of weeks ago I connected my desktop to the internet and upgraded Ubuntu. I haven't used it since then, until today, when I took the ethernet cord out of my laptop and stuck in in the desktop. The light next to the place you plug the cord in came on and Ubuntu tried to connect, but eventually it just said "You are now disconnected." I restarted and it continued to do this. I plugged the ethernet cord into the laptop and now I am online. What is going on here??
After installing 10.04 netbook remix on my acer aspire one, I have experienced all sorts of trouble. I can't get online, not with the wireless network, or with a usb-cable directly from the router. When I try to install the hardware drivers i get a message: there are no hardware drivers installed or something like that. There are no other OS on the harddrive, just 10.04 netbook remix. Another problem is the startup. Sometimes it boots right away, other times I've have to restart/reboot. 3-4 times before it works. How comes? Is there any way to download the missing packages/firmware to a usb-stick and then install it on the the netbook?
A couple of months ago, I replaced a broken down modem for my DSL connection. I've learned time and again that Verizon is completely of no help to Linux customers, and so any problems I ever experience, I''m pretty much on my own. These days, I am running no windows whatsoever. Previously, when I got a new modem I would run verizon's windows software to set up the modem for DHCP, and then any distro I chose to run wo0uld connect automatically.
Well, without the ability to run windows, it's a lot more problematic. I have only managed to get some debian-based distros online by running an application called pppoeconf or pppoe-config. No slackware, and since a few months ago I released my own live CD that's based on Slax, this is embarassing and frustrating to say the least. DNS, pppoe, TCP/IP... this is not my thing.
Now I've got Slackware 13 installed, and I've been running netconfig and pppoe-setup, and according to the results I get when I run pppoe-status, I should be online :
And here is where I was supposed to have posted the results of my non-error messsage, but I don't seem to have saved it from the last time I was loggen into slackware. Looks like I'll have to do it again
