Ubuntu Networking :: TP-Link Wifi USB Adapter: Cannot Setup It In Master Mode To Use PC As A Router

Jun 10, 2010

I got two issues with my wifi usb adapter:

1) it cannot see any networks around
2) i cannot setup it in master mode to use my PC as a router

As far as i can see, the device is recognized and the correct driver (rt73usb) is loaded. I was able to connect to a laptop somehow (the laptop could see other networks and the adapter's PC-to-PC network). I'd like to make it work as a router, i.e. share my internet connection (eth0) via wlan0. Here is what i have:

Code:
Ubuntu 10.04
Linux 2.6.32-22-generic #36-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 3 19:31:57 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
TP-Link TL-WN321G wifi usb adapter as seen as

Ubuntu Networking :: Iwconfig/iwlist - No Wireless Extensions And Interface Doesn't Support Scanning?

Mar 11, 2010

The adapter I purchased (Zonet ZEW2508 ) uses the Ralink 2070 chipset - a fact that originally excited me because Ralink seems to be fairly loving to the Linux community. However, despite my best efforts I can't get the thing to work. Initially I tried following directions to set up the driver you can download from the Ralink website. The directions I found were written February first, and Ralink updated the driver February eighth - so as far as I can tell the directions no longer work. After screwing around trying to figure that out for a while I decided to give ndiswrapper a go.

Initially this seemed promising. I just harvested the drivers from the CD and followed one of the many ndiswrapper directions available - most helpful seemed initially to be the Ndiswrapper Troubleshooting Guide found in this forum, however the solutions offered there didn't work either. When I throw an ndiswrapper -l into the terminal it looks promising at first, it tells me the driver is installed and the device is present, but it just doesn't work. When I try iwconfig, or iwlist scan it tells me "no wireless extensions," and "interface doesn't support scanning" respectively. The only devices even listed are lo, eth0, and pan0. There's no wlan0 or anything of the sort.

Networking :: Master Mode On AR928X Using Ath9k Driver?

Sep 18, 2009

I am trying to get my wireless card working in master mode. I am running Jaunty server 2.6.28-11 x86_64. I have compiled hostapd with nl80211 enabled. The interface is using ath9k. I have tried to compile compat-wireless with this patch. However IEEE80211_IF_TYPE_AP was undefined along with IEEE80211_IF_TYPE_VLAN. In addition the latest version of compat-wireless needs to be patched for kernels < 2.6.31 with this. However when using this patch IRQ_WAKE_THREAD is still undefined.

I have got to this message:

Code:

$ sudo hostapd /home/jophish/.hostapd.conf
Configuration file: /home/jophish/.hostapd.conf
Failed to set interface wlan0 to master mode.

Ubuntu Networking :: Getting Master Mode To Work With Asus 167g V3

Mar 12, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and try to get my wifi to work in master mode. The dongle is a Asus 167g v3 and I'm using the rtl8192SU driver. I can connect to a network or put the dongle in Ad-hoc mode without a problem. It's when I try to put in master mode some problem occurs. When I do:

sudo iwconfig wlan1 essid test mode master
This is the output I'm getting:

Ubuntu Networking :: Buying USB Wireless For Master Mode & Question About Antenna?

Jul 28, 2011

I've searched for too many days and nights so many information went through my head. I want to buy a usb wireless which support master mode. (not monitor mode) Now I'm interested in Alfa AWUS036NEH. I like it because it is small an have a long antenna strong 1000mW. signal. (AWUS036H is a little bit big for me) However from what i have read AWUS036NEH is not supported in master mode (softAP)(or may be supported but with hostapd, but again some forum said it doesn't support and some say it does... Totally confused.) -> Actually AWUS036NEH is not expensive but I don't want to invest in something i'm not sure about so I won't buy it until I really know if it works. So I switch to find out what is for sure

1. supported in master mode in Ubuntu

2. Have a long antenna (like 5" or something. I have no idea about hardware but I think longer antenna should send signal more further)

3. small (about normal USB size don't count antenna)

Sadly I only find Alfa AWUS036NEH the only option for me , the others has no brand. However TL-WN722N is what most likely to fit. Only it has a shorter antenna. Can i replace the antenna with a longer one (with some others brand) by myself? (TL-WN722N can use master mode in kernel 3.0 ? already ? some say it should but i've not seen one that stated clearly) Ahh I think the above is totally messed up. I will make long story short.

1. Is AWUS036H or AWUS036NEH support master mode in ubuntu ? (if yes with hostapd or something?)

2. Is TL-WN722N or TL-WN722NC can work in master mode in Ubuntu ? (if yes with hostapd or something?)

3.Can I replace the original antenna with a longer one ?(with other brand or same brand) Will the signal be stronger?

Ubuntu Networking :: D-link DWA-552 Master Mode On 10.04 - File Transfers Or Bandwidth Consuming Processes

May 20, 2010

after successfully configuring the dwa-552 to work in master mode in ubuntu 10.04 (ath9k driver) I ran some file transfer tests. The download speed is very good (~50mbps) but the upload speed spikes at about 10-20mbps for the first few KB and then it's nonexistent (0-1kbps). This only affects file transfers or otherwise bandwidth consuming processes. Normal web browsing or ssh is not affected. After running a speedtest of my internet connection which is routed through the AP I could upload to the internet with 1mbps which is my inet connection maximum so apparently this is not affected. Tried the same file transfers with netcat to eliminate any other factors and had the same problem. dmesg and hostapd debug did not report anything unusual

Server :: Local Master Browser Do Not Sync Their List With The Domain Master

Nov 13, 2009

I'm managing a residential network. Each flat is its own subnet, and can only communicate with the other flats through a router (i.e. no broadcast). 95% of these 300 subnets only contains windows computers (from lambda users).

My final goal is to be able to browse the entire network from any computer.

I set up a samba server acting as a wins server, and every computer is aware of it because it is registered in the dhcp. So name resolution is working fine for everyone.

The same samba server is set to be the "Domain master browser":

workgroup = WORKGROUP
wins support = yes
prefered master = yes
local master = yes
domain master = yes
os level = 65

When I browse the network (using "net view" or "browstat view"), I can only see the servers which are in the same subnet as the domain master browser.

Now, when in a subnet the computers arrange themselves to find a "local master browser", the only visible computers are the one in that subnet.

What I don't understand is why all the local masters don't synchronize their lists with the domain master.

So, to sum up, every subnet get the following behaviour:

-if a local master is elected, the only visible computers are the one in the same subnet.

-if no local master is elected, the only visible computers are the one in the subnet of the domain master.

-if I add another samba, configured as a local master winning all elections, then the magic is working and the lists are synchronized.

What is expected:
-every computer can see all the computer from all the subnets.

Hardware :: D-Link DWA-643 And Belkin F5D8071 (Belkin N1) Master Mode?

Mar 11, 2011

I'm looking at buying one of the above cards, and was wondering if anyone knew if they worked in master mode (e.g. as an access point). According to the Aircrack-ng site, they support packet injection and monitor mode. Is master mode support solely up to the driver used with the card, or does the card have to physically support it?

Hardware :: Install Wireless-N Adapter On Ubuntu 9.04 (WPA Support)?

Apr 29, 2009

I'm trying hard to get my new usb wireless adapter to work with my ubuntu desktop 9.04.

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic git-core libssl-dev
Next, download the drivers for the tool-chain
cd /usr/src/
sudo git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mcgrof/otus.git

[code].....

my wireless network appear disabled in the network list. There is one network in the list enabled which is using WEP. I think this is because my network is using WPA or WPA2 and that the installed driver needs a suppleant driver to work correctly. I dowloaded the driver package from DLINK [URL] Now when I open the package I see that there is a wpa_supplicant-0.4.8_otus.tar.gz. Untaring it gives me a folder with source code...

Networking :: Not Able To Associate With AP Using The Iwconfig

Jul 3, 2011

I have an IBM T60 with Intel 3945ABG WNIC:

Module for this WNIC is loaded:

Code:

Code:

If I execute "iwlist wlan0 scanning", I see the cell I'm interested in:

Code:

I'm able to connect to this cell using Gnome "Wireless Networks" manager, but not with iwconfig. At first I tried to connect to this "bq" network while wlan0 was active("ifconfig wlan0 up") using the iwconfig but this didn't change any of the wlan0 parameters.

Then I tried to shutdown wlan0("ifconfig wlan0 down") and executed:

Code:

Now the changes applied and "iwconfig wlan0" gives following:

Code:

Everything seems to be correct, but I'm still "Not-Associated". I have tried with "iwconfig wlan0 essid bq", "iwconfig wlan0 ap 00:24:14:F9:0B:92", "iwconfig wlan0 essid "bq" mode Managed" etc, but whatever I try, it does not connect. I even did "/etc/init.d/gdm stop" in order to be sure, that Gnome "Wireless Networks" is not interfering with "iwconfig", but this gave no results as well. I can associate with this AP using the Gnome "Wireless Networks" just fine, but for some reason I can't connect using iwconfig.

Networking :: Save Changes With Iwconfig Permanently?

Feb 20, 2010

I am having some problems with my wireless card. If I ping my pc with no activity on it, it just won't respond to the pings. But if I start pinging from the PC and then from somewhere else, everything works perfect. I found out this problem since my ftp service was not responding sometimes. So looking for info and checking some parameters I found the "Power Management" option in the iwconfig command. It's value is "on" so I tried turning it off and It seemed to have solved the issue. The thing is that after a reboot, it returns to it's default value. Is there any way to make this parameter value permanent?

If I ping my gateway the Windows lappy does in in 1 ms but the Linux in 20ms. iwconfig reports errors under Rx invalid crypt, tx excessive retries and huge numbers under invalid misc, and nothing on the rest.

The router is encrypted with WEP and iwconfig reports the correct key.
