I've got a problem while accessing the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 file, CLI's throwing: "Stale File Handle" - there's no access to this file. Problem is the same regardless wlan0 interface is up or down.
having trouble with my asus 1000 rt2860 wireless n card and WPA/PSK/WPA2 connections. Funky thing is it worked in the 2.26.32-21 kernel (iwconfig shows ra0 as the wireless interface), but when the kernel was updated and pushed through in the ubuntu updates to 2.26.32-22 the wireless card won't stay connected and iwconfig says wlan0 is the interface. I checked the proprietary drivers and they said that the driver for my card was active, but not in use. How do I use the ra0 instead of wlan0?
how do i use the driver that's listed as not being used? I'm having to boot up lucid with the older kernel now, it's annoying, lots of programs aren't running as expected as a result. I've tried manually installing the driver from the RaLink website as detailed in many other posts concerning this wireless card. It seems to work for some people, but not with me.
I try to set-up an Access point using ubuntu 11.04. I am using the minimal configuration file from [URL] together with a TP-Link TL-WN422G (Atheros chipset). I've installed the linux-backports-net-natty-generic drivers. But when trying to start hostapd I always get this output:
Code: # hostapd -dd -K test.conf Configuration file: test.conf Failed to set interface wlan0 to master mode. nl80211 driver initialization failed. wlan0: Unable to setup interface. ELOOP: remaining socket: sock=5 eloop_data=0x9b9440 user_data=(nil) handler=0x43d980 I have also disabled the network-manager for this device by adding this to /etc/network/interfaces:
I have managed to configure a wireles PCI card on CentOS 5.3 and it seems to work fine. It is a off brand (Hercules) with a Ralink RT61 chipset. I installed the most current driver (RT2501PCI/mPCI/CB(RT61:RT2561/RT2561S/RT2661) from the rt2x00 Open Source Project. I now have a question that might be very simple for one or more of you to answer. When I issue the command "shutdown -h now", the machine starts to come down and brings down eth0 cleanly, but when it attempts to bring down wlan0, the machine hangs and never brings down the interface OR powers off the box. The only way to complete the power off is to "hard" power off the machine.
My Lenovo laptop has an Intel Pro 4965 Wifi adapter,here is the "lspci" detection:
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection (rev 61)
So installed the needed "firmware-iwlwifi" kernel module, which is a correct kernel module for this adapter.
Then "modprobe -a iwlwifi"........no complaints !
However, #iwconfig wlan0 wlan0 No such device and # lsmod |grep iwlwifi iwlwifi 87219 0 cfg80211 350041 4 iwl4965,iwlwifi,iwlegacy,mac80211
The wired ethernet is working fine ifconfig -a eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1e:37:82:ac:72 inet addr:192.168.1.16 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::21e:37ff:fe82:ac72/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
when I go to "Preferences" "Network Connection" ' "Add" "WI-FI" "Create" "Device MAC Address " box is empty.......no Wi-Fi adapter detected !!!
the PC just hangs for ever. No mouse movement, ctrl-alt-del, nothing.
I have downloaded a Linux driver from Realtek but it will not compile. I have the latest kernel-devel, headers, and gcc. I can post compiler errors if anybody would like. They're all apparently to do with missing parameters.
Im new to this Cent OS as well as Unix based Operating Systems. Please help me with the below requirement.My Company is a Serach based data collector from different websites like Google, Yahoo & many more..Collecting the data from the search engines is a issue for right now.. As many search engines are blocking us to search and retrive the date after some time.. Taking Google as example : Google Blocks my IP after every 30 mins of retriving.. Application is a Windows based & using Windows 2003 as the Server.. Would like to give a Dynamic IP to the Windows Server via 1st Ethernet Card & enable the 2nd Ethernet for the Internet..Eg : eth 0 = 192.168.1.1eth 1 = x.x.x.x (Public IP)I have check with few of my friends who told me to get Linux or Cent OS installed to do a interface disable after given time & enable a secondary device or virtual interface the next couple of seconds... Like eg : eth 1 = x.x.x.1 eth 2 = x.x.x.2 eth 3 = x.x.x.3 so on.. Would like the eth 1 to be down after 60 mins & eth 2 o be up & again after 60 mins of up time eth 2 down & eth 3 up.
i upgraded my ubuntu 9.10(karmic) to ubuntu 10.04 (lucid) by executing the commands " apt-get update apt-get dist-upgrade" one at a time in terminal after finishing upgrade ,i restarted my system, after restarting i can't access GUI (interface) in UPGRADED version ,it prompts me to terminal interface. how to enable proprietary drivers.., about enabling proprietary drivers! and also i used startx command it prompts me to gui but i can't access my keyboard and mouse or any other input devices.
I am also using gnome-NetworkManager. If I left-click on the NetworkManager icon down on the taskbar near the clock it shows "Wired Networks" with eth0 connected, and "Wireless Networks" is blank under the heading, last week I believe it said something like "device unavailable" or something like that.
Network Details: iwconfig Code: lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. [Code]....
I was curious about when the last time I was able to successfully use my wifi so I checked to see in NetworkManger and it just so happend to be that I was on a business trip in Atlanta on a different network then am usually connected to. Don't know if that has to do with anything but I thought it was worth mentioning.
Also, I thought it may have something to do with assigning an IP address static-or-auto but I am not too familiar with NetworkManager to check that.
I have two usb wlan cards. In 11.2 whenever i start connection with the second one (wlan1) via knetworkmanager, the latter also starts a connection using the first one , leading to wlan problems,
In 11.1 i had no such problems because i could select the one to be used in knetworkmanager, and only that one was used by knetworkmanager.my current solution is to
su ifdown wlan0 logout
this shuts down the first card but i have to do this manually after every restart. one thing: don't come with "deactivate in bios" - i knoe this but playing around in bios everytime i switch between windows and linux is no option. So how can i prohibit permanently that knetworkmanager uses the first one (wlan0)? putting in some place of suseconfigs a rmmod <driver>? where? /etc/sysconfig ??
I have to use ndiswrapper to get my wireless card to work (Cheap D-link usb wireless). I have never had a problem in ubuntu releases with getting it up and going, but in Fedora and now Opensuse I am struggling. I have everything setup with no errors. Ndiswrapper lists my drivers as installed and my hardware present. lsusb also has it listed. but when I modprobe ndiswrapper, I am getting no errors, but I am also not getting wlan0 to show when using iwconfig. I also noticed when modprobed the wireless card's light isn't coming on like ubuntu.
I've just a had laptop meltdown which resulted in the acquisition of a replacement (HP635) sporting a realtek wireless NIC. Found the drivers and installed them and all is well. HOWEVER, the card is not activated on wake from sleep mode. This is kind of astounding to me. Every crappy windows version that I've used can handle this situation. Many searches, however have failed to yield any help. After every resume from sleep mode I have to run ifup to start wlan0. Surely this is not the only way it can be? I have to assume that I'm not getting something simple, and someone here can point out my failing. or if you can just sympathize. running 11.4 here using the realtek 8192 driver set to start at boot time. Though none of the other settings have had any effect on this problem.
currently on an acer aspire 5532, and using mozilla and google chrome. webpages take about 10-12 seconds to load using the ethernet, wifi its about 2-3 seconds. using eth0 loading videos - broadcast yourself. in chrome, will sit at "resolving host" for about 10 seconds before bringing up the page. you would think eth0 is faster than wlan0, but for browsing the web its slower. i tested the speeds at speedtest.net - the global broadband speed test and both wlan0 and eth0 get the max speed my internet provides.i never downloaded drivers for the ethernet card or wifi, they worked so i didn't try to mess with them. but perhaps that is my problem?
I have installed Open SUSE in my DELL server which has 2 broadcom NIC cards, it showing both the NIC cards in Network configuration in YAST ,but it showing as not configured and not connected . Kernel device eth0,wlan0 are not present. In device manager also 2 Broadcom nic cards are detected.
This is probably the 1 millionth post about WIFI issues. I have tried many sources on the internet but cant get my wireless to work. I have been using another version of linux for long time. But recent edition of that particular linux does not support my wifi any more. Just recently i have tried SuSE and almost fell in love with it. The only problem, WIFI.
I got a Linksys WUSB54GC USB wifi stick which uses RT2800USB native driver. I installed SuSE from the scratch and it found the wifi stick installed the drivers. My only problem is it does not scan for wireless networks. I haev two wifi networks around here. I can connect to them with windows computer with the same wifi stick.
I have tried iwconfig iwlist ifup but i am stuck exactly what to do.
I've had 11.4/KDE working pretty well on dual boot Asus G73SW for a few weeks now. Only issues were the FN-* functions that control keyboard lights and whatnot but no biggie since the essential worked.The last couple of days the update notification was indicating 1,201 updates to be made. Yeah it seemed extreme but I googled around and checked the forums and there was nothing related. I figured I might be missing some packages since I installed from the live KDE CD (still 1202 updates!!!???). So I updated. Big mistake!!!!! Ever since NetworkManager cannot connect to the internet, be it wired or wireless.
Initially it could not even see my home network but it picked it up after I removed the plasmoid from the panel and reinstalled it. However it doesn't respond when I click the network icon and still no connection.I managed to get eth0 working with ifup but not wifi. The last part of network manager log file is quoted below. I can send the whole thing to whoever is interested. I can't make sense of it but maybe someone on the forums can.
