have Unix and Windows experience. So will need some hand-holding.Need help getting my wireless network to work on my newly installed Oracle Linux on Dell laptop.Not sure what wireless card is installed, or it's mac address (though I can boot into windows and get that info I don't want to - it'll be kind of a let down if I can't fix it all thru Linux).Install has detected a Broadcom wired card, but not the wireless. Funny thing is that it detected the Bluetooth
I have a desktop and a laptop. I have Netgear WGR614v9 Wireless Router connected to my desktop. Since my Laptop is pretty old I also bought a Netger Wireless Adapter for the sme model. Now when I connect the Wireless Adapter I am unable to connect to Wi-fi. I am new to Linux, after googling I ran "lsusb" command and it showed Netgear Wireless adapter and its version. Also in GUI when I open File Browser it also shows the Adapter detected but I am unable to connet the same to my router. Also the blue light on the adapter is not glowing.
I just switched from Ubuntu to Fedora 13 because I was unable to get Ubuntu to connect to wireless networks. I tried everything suggested in help and forums, and kept getting "Bad Password" with WICD and Network Manager. Now, with Fedora...I still can't connect.
Problem #1: The guide says to "...make sure that the relevant wireless interface (usually eth0 or eth1) is controlled by NetworkManager," and that I do this via: System>Administration>Network
However, there is no Network option under System>Administration.
Problem #2: I open Network Manager, which displays a list of networks. I click on mine, configure it with WPA and the right password, and it fails to connect: "The network connection has been disconnected."
I am using a dell laptop which has Dell 1397 802.11B/G Wireless Mini Card. I not able to connect to internet and was not able to detect what actual problem is weather card is not supported (i.e. drivers are not available) .
Also, if any one can point to exact process to connect to wireless Lan using fedora12.
I have the required drivers from this website: Broadcom.com - 802.11 Linux STA driver As far as I can tell I have followed all the instructions given by the readme, I have all kernel packages that I had understood to be required but when I try to make the Makefile I am given this:
borgs0@linux-yjl1:~/hybrid_wl> make KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd` make: Entering directory `/lib/modules/2.6.34-12-desktop/build' make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop. make: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/2.6.34-12-desktop/build' make: *** [all] Error 2
These problems just started the last couple of days but I have been using Lucid 10.04 for a month now. My wireless Signal varies in strength wildly. I sitting at home, not 20 feet from my router. I never had these problems before Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04. I am running both Network Manager and Wicd.
Errors: 1. Wicd states "Wrong Password" which is not true. 2. Dropping off-line for no reason, sometimes 3 or 4 times a minute and sometimes it works fine for hours. 3. Firefox 3.6.3 Automatically Checking "Work Offline"!?
I have the Proper Wireless Drivers. I have not changed my wireless settings, channel or WPA for 8 months now so I know thats not it.
My wife's laptop is Dell Inspiron 6400 running 11.04. Wireless has recently stopped working. Running rfkill list all shows dell-wifi hard blocked no soft blocked no. The fn plus F2 keys toggle status between blocked no and blocked yes, but network manager still can't see network. I've tried removing the Broadcom STA driver - no joy.
I HAVE DUAL BOOTING SYSTEMVISTA + RED HAT 5.0ON VISTA I CAN RUN WI FIBUT ON RED HAT IT CANT WORK AND SAYS CANNOT ACTIVATE NETWORK DEVICE eth13c501 device eth1 does not seem to be present delaying initialisation.
how to make intel 3945 to work on RHEL5 ? Apparently that hardware is not officially supported by Red Hat so they do not provide drivers. what happens on my PC is after login I do not have the wireless card led is off and when I try to start the wireless connection I get
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
I'm not a real linux expert but I do use it since long time.
I am trying to get the Dell 1395 (Broadcom) wireless card to work on my PC and having a nightmare. I am certain the bulk of the reason is my inexperience with Linux but all the same it is causing me no end of problems.I have found the following sites which suggest ways to get it working
Unfortunately I can't get either method to work on my Fedora 11 installation. I don't mean that I complete the steps only to find it doesn't work, I mean I can't even complete the required steps because I appear to be doing something wrong or be missing a crucial command tool.When I try to run the broadcom method I get as far as the make (or make clean) commands.
The make clean results in:
KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd` clean make: gcc: Command not found make: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/126.96.36.199-105.2.23.fc11.i586'
If I try the other method I get into problems when I get to the ndiswrapper section as the install can't find ndiswrapper-common.
I have recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 but am unable to connect to any of the wireless networks. Network manager does not shows any of the available wireless networks and upon clicking the network connection icon, under Wireless networks category it shows "Device not ready".Following are the results of some of the commands :
iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wmaster0 no wireless extensions.
(gave me dependency error for libc6 (>= 2.3.2), I modified the control file to remove dependency and rebuilt the package) (now worked fine) Oracle xe is now installed. Then I tried to start the DB it started but it's HTTP client never started. So I decided to uninstall the oracle-xe=universal. None of the sudo apt-get remove oracle-xe-universal command's didn't worked for me. So i went for manual uninstallation directions as per oracle link.
rocky@ubuntu:~/git/mygit/edas2/libaio$ sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture oracle-xe-universal_10.2.0.1-1.1_i386.deb dpkg: warning: overriding problem because --force enabled: package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)
Even in applications menu I don't see the if oracle has been installed. So i conclude first time installation was ok but somehow http client didn't worked. After manual uninstallation, second installation didn't even loaded/installed the oracle-xe in init.d directory.
My Dell Vostro 1520's Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card must not have been set-up correctly, as the Network Manager won't even let me select the wireless tab. Please just explain to me, step by step, what exactly I must do to make it work! Additionally, I can't figure out how to disable my Touchpad's Tap to Click funtionality, which must be done if I'm to effectively use my current KDE installation of openSUSE
I just got a new laptop...Dell Vostro 3500. Took off Win put on Ubuntu...all went fine. I did all updates and app downloads using my WIRED NETWORK as wireless wasnt working. However I was more interested in setting up the new computer. Anyway so after all is installed up pops "Broadcom STA Wireless driver" Proprietary driver do you want to install. Obviously I said yes...
Well now My wireless is working great but for some reason my Wired (auto eth0) no longer works. It just says disconnected and its grayed in. I'm pretty much a newbie but did try a few things like:
apt-get update apt-get "something" essential (thats not a command just from memory it was something like that)
However I've had no luck. This Broadcom driver seems to have knocked out my wired network.
I have installed Micro Core onto a usb of mine and am running it on my laptop. I have been able to successfully obtain a connection and valid ip with my router. As you can see below my wireless connection seems valid computer-end and on my router's page it comes under the list of attached devices.Although this is all fine and dandy, I'm am unable to ping my router or any other computer on my network, I am also unable to ping my laptop from other computers on the network. Also by the looks of it I have having no trouble transmitting, but I am not receiving any packets.
I would share my long awaited success with connecting my ubuntu laptop up to my universities (University of Western Sydney) wireless network. The rumors appeared true and they have finally implemented 802.11x authentication instead of that horrible java app netdirect. I am sure you've been cursing at its erratic stability. There is no linux documentation for airUWS-Lite nor anything more imformative than there windows/mac point and click steps found at [URL]. However with a few simple clicks you can have stable working connection.
When connecting make sure you have theses settings. Security: WPA & WPA2 Enterprise Authentication: Protected EAP (PEAP) #This is the settings that does not present itself correctly Anonymous Identity: leave blank PEAP Version: Automatic Inner Authentication: MSCHAPv2 Username: <YOUR 8 DIGIT STUDENT NUMBER> Password: your regular password
I could not able to configure the default gateway ip address onto the system. i use the route command (" route add default gw 192.xxx.xxx.xxx eth0 ") to add a default gateway onto the routing table but it is "disappear" in the routing table when i had restart the service network.
how to configure an Ubuntu 10.10 server with a secured wireless network? I installed everything while it was wired, but I need to get it wireless. I downloaded the desktop to see if it could help me in configuring the wireless network, but it didn't help. how to configure wireless internet on an Ubuntu 10.10 Server in the terminal, which is preferred, or in the desktop.
When I type the command iwconfig, it shows eth1 being me wireless device. When I try and edit it, nothing changes! I don't know what I need to change other than the ESSID and the WEP key. I'm assuming I need to change the access point too, but it doesn't let me. Is there any specific order they must be changed in?
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my Toshiba A200-12U laptop (with an Atheros AR5007EG wireless card), but networking is being problematic.I entered Network Configurations and tried to get 'Auto eth0' working -- I went to Edit > IPv4 settings and filled in 'Addresses' with the details of my connection:
Address: 192.168.1.254 (the local IP of my router) Netmask: 255.255.252.0 Gateway: 188.8.131.52
