Ubuntu Networking :: No Longer See Any Networks Under "Wireless Networks"?

Jan 7, 2010

I could use Wireless network. I could see several different networks in my range. Then suddenly the network stoppedworking, and I can no longer see any networks under "Wireless networks".The Wired networks works fine.I tried upgrading ubuntu, but nothing changed. Just to confirm, I rebooted the computer in Windows Vista (Dual boot) andconfirmed that Wireless worked fine there. No hardware problem then.The suggestions I have found on this and other forums suggest looking at the output from iwconfig and ifconfig. But since I'm a n00b at Ubuntu I don't know what to make of it.

This is the output:
emil@emils:~$ iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

Ubuntu Networking :: Use Laptop As "wireless To Wire" Network Converter?

Jan 19, 2011

The problem is that I'm too lazy to buy a wireless network card for my stationary computer that I'm going to use on my room with no wired network. So I'm looking for how to use my laptop with Ubuntu 10.10 as a wireless to wired network converter, sorta. I know how to use a laptop as a "wire to wireless" network converter, but in my case, I need the opposite. I think I'll need a crossed network cable between my ubuntu laptop and my stationary computer (that's the one I'm aiming to get internet onto), but I don't have a crossed one, can I use a switch instead?

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom Wireless No Longer Recognizes Wireless Networks?

Jan 11, 2010

I've been running Karmic since it was officially released on my Dell Studio 17 (specs are in my signature) with a Broadcom wireless half mini wireless card.hen I installed Karmic, it gave me the option to install proprietary drivers for my video card as well as 2 Broadcom drivers, STA and one of the BC43 drivers. I installed all of these, and the only problems I had were with the audio. I spent a few days troubleshooting the audio and finally got PulseAudio set up for my card.

Almost 3 months later, I was making use of my wireless network at home, as I had done plenty of times over the previous 3 months, when I closed the lid (thus putting the computer into sleep mode) and took it to the hospital to stay with my fianc饠after her surgery. When I got to the hospital, I couldn't get their network to show up. Network Manager didn't even recognize the network. We had also brought my fianc饧s laptop (same machine with a slightly less powerful CPU and only 4 GB of RAM). She is running Windows 7, which detected the hospital's network with no problems.After trying to ad-hoc the hospital network with no success, I finally just gave up and played Sudoku and toyed with some graphics stuff in GIMP until we came home. Upon returning home, however, I was shocked that my card didn't even detect our home network.

I have been unsuccessful for the past 3 days in getting Network Manager to identify our wireless network. The wired network connects without issue and I am able to make use of a USB Belkin adapter, which identifies all 7 of the various wireless networks in my neighborhood, including our home network.While I would be able to simply carry my Belkin adapter with me in order to make use of wireless networks, I would really like to solve this problem with my Broadcom adapter. I've gone through the Ubuntu Wireless Network Troubleshooting guide, but I still can't get it to workOutput of lshw -C network:

Ubuntu Networking :: Pavilion Dv6 Wireless - Can't Find Local Wireless Networks

Jun 11, 2011

For some reason, ubuntu cannot find local wireless networks. In fact, the Broadcom wireless card Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g/n seems to be incompatible with ubuntu. I've tried numerous 'solutions' on the Internet, but none of them seem to work on my computer. Tutorials I've visited have recommended downloading the b43 drivers from the Synaptic package manager and also the bcmwl-kernal-source package. Nevertheless, the wireless never turns on and Additional Drivers never shows anything at all. After several exasperating hours of trying to get my wireless running I've decided to turn to the forum for help. I'm sure there's probably more information I should supply, but I'm honestly not sure what that would be.

It says the wlan0 is working but it does not see any wireless network. I tried it at a couple of places other than here where I thought it should detect a wireless network but it did not. How can I determine if it is FreeSpire or the Wireless card at fault?

Software :: OpenSUSE11.4 - Wire/wireless Icon In Tray?

Apr 10, 2011

I know that the wireless devices are working properly as other OSs on this HD work in various forms both .deb and .rpm. In setting up openSUSE11.4, no matter which wireless device in WPA is installed, the icon will go to the wired icon, not the wireless. You can see it trying to go to a wireless icon, but then it reverts to the wired one. I'm beginning to think that this a OS problem in itself and not an install problem.

Ubuntu :: No Wireless Or Hard Wire Internet Connection On Dell 14R?

Sep 12, 2010

i just installed the newest version of Ubuntu on my Dell 14r(1440) laptop. It's the newest version of the laptop with the i3.

I have the hated Dell Wireless DW1501, 802.11 g/n 1x1 Half Mini network card, which is only compatible with Windows operating systems from what i can tell. I want to be able to connect to the internet both ways, but especially and more importantly using a Ethernet cable.

Ubuntu Networking :: No Wireless Networks Being Detected

I have been having trouble getting my network card to access networks. I currently am using a wired connection. A while ago when I first installed Linux on this same computer, I got it working by installing the driver. But since I reinstalled Linux, I tried the process again with no success. Can anyone give me explicit instructions on installing the network card driver so I can use it on Linux.

Ubuntu Networking :: No Wireless Networks Found After A While

Sep 5, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 64bit on a Thinkpad T61, and I keep running into some issues with the wireless networks. For a while, the connection works fine (sometimes several hours, sometimes 15 minutes or so--there doesn't appear to be an event associated with it). Eventually, though, the connection disappears; first, though the widgets say I'm connected, nothing will go through, and soon after, it realizes I'm not connected and, moreover, it can't find a single wireless network, despite the fact that it was just fine a couple of minutes beforehand (and other devices still have access to the WLAN, so I know that the router hasn't crapped out). I've tried using wicd, but the same thing happens.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Only Works On Certain Networks

Oct 11, 2010

I have a pretty beat-up laptop, on which the inbuilt wireless doesn't work, and so I now have an ASUS WL-167g, which is acting up!It almost always connects to the required networks without an issue, but then once I'm connected it's REALLY slow on some of them! For example, while I'm at school, it works flawlessly! And at a couple of friends' houses, it works too! however, at home, and at a couple of other places, despite the fact that it connects, its so slow, that google takes like 5 mins to load and searching for anything on google leads it to time out!! This happens whether I'm right next to the router (full signal strength) or 2 floors up (at like 3 bars strength)!

It's getting pretty frustrating to have to swap my lan cable between my desktop and laptop constantly, and also to not be able to use my laptop away from my desk!Does anyone know what might be going on??Also, while i have you guys here! I have another problem -- with the inbuilt card.. Initially, it wouldn't work at all.. but more recently, it has started to function (it connects and works on my home network fine) the only problem is that about 10 mins after I turn the wireless switch on on my laptop, it hangs! (EVERYTIME) (if it's relevant, my laptop is a SONY VAIO VGN-S46GP). Again, any input would be appreciated!!

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Networks Not Showing Up?

Oct 17, 2010

I have ubuntu 10.10, and at my house I primarily used wired, and it works fine, and under windows earlier today I was able to locate networks, so my wireless card is working. I'm currently at my girlfriends house, and trying to connect to her wireless internet. When I try to connect, I can't find any networks. I've made sure her network has sharing and discovery enabled, however in my wirelss manager it comes up as blank. There's the option to add wireless manually, but do I really need to go through the trouble of finding the routers mac address and all that, it should just show up?I could switch back to windows to see if I can connect, but I'm almost positive it's just the linux wireless manager..

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Networks Only Sometimes Showing Up?

Nov 6, 2010

I arrived in the Central African Republic only to find that my wireless (on an HP Mini 5102) wasn't working -- it didn't detect any wireless networks. So I wiped off Windows and installed Ubuntu 10.10, Luckily, it did! (Partly.) At first, I still didn't get any wireless networks. I messed around with all the various things you have to do to get Broadcom wireless drivers working. Finally, following a forum suggestion, I installed Wicd -- and this did the trick. Not knowing any better, I kept Network Manager alongside Wicd, but Wicd is what works much better. (Is there a reason to un-install Network Manager?)

However, when I try to connect wirelessly to the network at this country's one cafe with wifi (which usually works really well, by CAR standards), the network doesn't appear. At the office, when I open Wicd, it includes a box with the message "<connection name>: obtaining IP address", and bit by bit it connects. But when I open Wicd at the cafe, this doesn't happen -- it just gives me a list of random signals from nearby offices (all secured and low-signal), none of which I can connect to. Any ideas how I could get the cafe network to show up?I'm at the office now, and so it's working. However, in order to get it working I had to restart three times -- Wicd only seems to work about half or 33% of the time. Sometimes I get the message: "Connection failed: unable to get IP address" and sometimes I get the message "No wireless networks detected." Then I try again and eventually it works. So far.

Ubuntu Networking :: Not Detecting Any Wireless Networks?

Feb 27, 2011

First time ever switching from windows. Mainly doing this cause I though it would be fun to learn a new OS and see how it is.From watching a few videos it looked like all I have to do is click on the wifi logo at the top of the screen and I would get my router and a bunch of others (does this on windows) but when I click on it I dont get anything. I think it might be that im running this on a laptop. My wifi card is: Standard Dell Wireless 1501 802.11 g/nIts a new dell inspiron 5000 laptop i customized a little with more ram and a new video card.

Im guessing I will need to provide more info but as I said at the start Im new to this and not sure how or what info I would need to provide. Please just tell me how I can get any data you need and il get right on it. (I used Wubi to install this, went off without a hitch)
