OpenSUSE Hardware :: Wireless Switch Not Working?

Sep 11, 2011

I have a Fujitsu-Amilo series Laptop that I am trying to enable the wireless on. The Wireless button needs acerhk compiled from source, but I have been unsuccessful in getting it to compile. This is the only way that I have gotten wireless to previously work on this laptop with any Linux distro. This laptop absolutely requires acerhk or else I will get the following in dmesg:

[ 9.329495] ipw2100: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Connection
[ 9.329520] ipw2100 0000:02:06.0: firmware: requesting ipw2100-1.3.fw
[ 9.596922] eth0: Radio is disabled by RF switch.

The only way to prevent this is to install the acerhk module driver from Acer Hotkey driver for Linux, but I have tried to compile it and it seemingly won't work.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Working - "wireless Is Disabled By Hardware Switch"

Jun 23, 2011

Just upgraded to the newest version of Ubuntu(unity), and my wireless isn't working. I have the 14e4:4315 Wireless Card so I followed this posts [URL].... And still have no wifi, when I click the icon in the menu bar it says under "Wireless Networks": "wireless is disabled by hardware switch", which ins't true because on my Vostro 1520, there is only one switch and it is in the on position. I've tried 3 versions of ubuntu and none of them work with wifi getting tired of it.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Not Working Compaq 6910p Intel 4965 AG Or AGN?

Feb 17, 2011

I am running openSUSE 11.3 updated with all the latest patches and I cannot connect to my wireless router. I am running Linux Mint 10 on the same type of notebook HP Compaq 6910p and it worked right after the install. If I take off the security WPA & WPA2 Personal I can connect. lspci -v | less shows this for my wireless card.

10:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection (rev 61)
Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 1000
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 29
Memory at e4000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]

[code]....

I am using the same settings for both notebooks just can't figure out why openSUSE 11.3 won't connect. I get the prompt to key in my password, I've even checked the box to show password to make sure I was keying it in correctly. Everything was good but it just goes right back to the password prompt after it fails trying to connect.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Not Working \ When Click On Networking Panel, It Says WLAN Interface Is Unavailable?

Jul 8, 2011

I have just installed openSuse 11.4 KDE 64-bit on a Dell M1330. When I click on my networking panel, it says WLAN interface is unavailable. I've followed the steps in the stickied post and found the WLAN hardware info, a screenshot of which is below:Uploaded with ImageShack.usNext it says to do this - you need to look at the logs, in particular the info in /var/log/boot.msg. To see this, you need YaST => Miscellaneous => System Logs and select boot.msg.In YaST there is no such option for system logs under miscellaneous, so I can't do that. The results of the sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan command produce the following:

root's password:
lo Interface doesn't support scanning.
eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Intel PRO/Wireless 5300 AGN Stopped Working For 11.2?

Jun 6, 2010

The wireless on my 64-bit openSUSE-11.2 installed on my Dell Studio 1537 laptop stopped working some time back (possibly more than a one or two months back). I just discovered this last week when on business. I have not used the wireless under openSUSE-11.2 for a while so I am not certain what broke it, but I am suspicious of an update. I note openSUSE-11.3 milestone-7 works great with the wireless (on a liveCD). I note possibly two related threads, although I note no failed request for firmware in my case:request for firmware file 'iwlwifi-5000-2.ucode' failed [INTEL 5300 AGN] [OPENSUSE 11.2] - openSUSE Forums, and I see another thread here: Suddenly No Wireless Network Card - openSUSE Forums... but I can not tell if what I have is the same problem, so I did not add to those threads. In my case I can scan for the network, and see the SSID. An ip address is assigned. But a ping does not work.

Some details, the wireless is:

Code:

04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 5300 AGN [Shiloh] Network Connection [8086:4235]
Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device [8086:1121]
Kernel driver in use: iwlagn
In terms of installed apps:

Code:

rpm -qa '*wireless*'
wireless-tools-30.pre8-5.1.x86_64
wireless-regdb-2009.09.08-2.2.noarch

[code]....

I know the router wireless network is good, because I can connect to the router via wireless with another laptop (old Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo 7400M with older Intel wireless), and the router wireless also works with this Dell Studio 1537 PC (with same hardware) but with openSUSE-11.3 milestone7 version.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Suddenly Not Working While Laptop Running?

Mar 31, 2011

I have Lenovo G550 and openSUSE 11.4. Everything's ok, wifi without problems, I could connect to anywhere I wanted to, but yesterday while laptop was running and was connected actually by wire to internet, after removing the wire I realized that I cannot connect to wifi (the laptop was hibernated during night) - even the light diode in the front of the laptop was not shining. I went to yast and realized that the wlan0 isn't enabled and there's new eth1 port. But the wlan by ifup I cannot start and the eth1 I cannot start as well.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Intel PRO 2100 Not Working - RF Killswitch Button Not Working At All?

Feb 18, 2010

I followed the sticky about setting up wireless and I have come to an issue where the WLAN switch which is on this computer can be pressed, the light comes on, but no WLAN. When I looked in dmesg, this is what I get:

ipw2100: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Connection
firmware: requesting ipw2100-1.3.fw
eth0: Radio is disabled by RF switch.

When running iwconfig wlan0 heres what I get:

home/j-dub # iwconfig eth0
wlan0 unassociated ESSID off/any Nickname:"ipw2100"
Mode:Managed Channel=0 Access Point: Not-Associated

[code]....

Notice it says that the 'Radio is disabled by switch' in dmesg. I can press that switch until the end of the world comes and it does absolutely nothing but make the WLAN light put on a light show. And it shows the wlan to be unassociated with any clients. So, what are my options to get this Wireless up and working?

Computer/OS info:

Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo M7400
1.4GHz Intel Centrino R
40GB HD
Suse 11.1 KDE

OpenSUSE Wireless :: 11.2 And PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Not Working?

Nov 13, 2009

My wireless is not working after a fresh install of OpenSUSE 11.2. I cannot connect in KDE or Gnome. I installed cnetworkmanger and I can't get anything to connect. My wired network card on this laptop has been down for a long time. All I have is wireless. I have to roll back today to 11.1 if I can't fix it, but I really have been looking forward to 11.2 for some time. This is really a stupid bug to have in supposedly production ready software. Maybe I should add that in KDE knetworkmanager does not load by itself. I have to load it manually via console every reboot. I get this:

> knetworkmanager
Object::connect: No such signal QTreeWidget::itemDoubleClicked(QTreeWidgetItem*)
Object:: connect: (sender name: 'twNetworks')

It puts the icon in the system tray, and annoyingly hides it, so it took me a while to evern realize it was there. When I point my mouse at it, it says "Networking Information Not Available". When I click it, it says Network Management Disabled. cnetworkmanager spews out a bunch of errors and finishes by saying it can't find any .service files. I configured the device via 'Network Devices' in YaST. Hardware info says it is using the iwl3945 kernel driver. Everything was fine in OpenSUSE 11.1 and 11.0.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Not Working For Compaq Presario

Apr 29, 2011

I just finished putting openSUSE 11.4 on my Compaq Presario V5000. I have been trying for hours to find the answer of how to get my wireless card to work. I can't connect to my router wirelessly and the on/off button for the wireless mode does not light up when pressed.

As far as I can tell from what I have already tried, I have a broadcoamm wireless card. It is a bm4318. I have b43-fwcutter installed and I have tried updating my firmware through the terminal. I have also used 'sudo /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware'. It appeared successful, but the laptop still cannot make a wireless connection.

Ubuntu :: Wireless Switch Inop Hp Zd7249cl Laptop - Wireless Button Wont Turn On

Jan 2, 2011

I have a hp zd7249cl laptop and have installed ubuntu 10.10 on it. The main problem I am having at the time is the wireless button will not turn on so there for I have no internet access. The switch works fine in windows, but not in ubuntu. The switch didn't work with the live cd either, but I thought it might after install. The wired card that is in the laptop is no good and quit working a couple of years ago so all I have is wireless now.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Not Working With KDE4?

Mar 15, 2010

When I'm at uni I use the wireless internet. This works perfectly well. Due to some issues with another program I ended up installing KDE4 in addition to gnome, which I usually use. In gnome the computer can easily find and log on to the wireless network. However when I start a KDE4 session I can't get the wireless to work. I don't really understand why this is happening. I though it would use the same settings. How do I make the KDE4 wireless network manager use the settings from the gnome wireless network manager?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Not Working On HP-G60?

Nov 26, 2010

I am running OpenSUSE 11.3 i had OpenSUSE 11.3 installed before and everything worked fine. I eventually went back to Windows for a bit. I have a Wireless Button that glows Orange. When I went back to windows it remained orange everytime I turned on my mp or woke it up. When I press it, it goes blue and wireless works. It was really annoying but I ignored it, I could never find a solution. I reinstalled OpenSUSE today, to find out Wireless doesnt work at all. I press the button but it remains Orange. My wireless adapter is a: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter.

Ubuntu Networking :: HP Pavilion Wireless Enable/Disable Button / "Wireless Disabled By Hardware Switch"?

May 11, 2011

I've had a host of problems since upgrading to 11.04 Natty Narwhal, so let's deal with these 1 at a time.

I've got a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G60 laptop. Next to the power button is a handy wireless on/off button. This has always worked well with previous editions (9.04,through 10.10). first press toggles the wireless off, second press toggles it on.

Not so in 11.04. The toggle off works great, first time. But, it will not toggle back on. Not after any number of tries, not after restarting, not after booting into other OS's (9.10 and Vista) re-enabling it there and then booting back into Narwhal. to further complicate the issue, this feature bypass the network manager, so toggling the wireless off by the switch leaves me showing no wireless adapter in the network manager. I also restarted, switched from Unity to a Gnome session, but the issue still persists.

As my only network options are wireless, this has become a substantial inconvenience.
----
EDIT: so the network util is actually saying "wireless disabled by hardware switch". Also noticed it I enable it in 9.10, reboot to 11.04 (where I inevitably fail to re-enable it), then reboot into 9.10, it will initially be disabled. The key difference is in 9.10 I have the ability to enable wifi using the hardware button. It seems that 11.04 is remembering that wireless is disabled between boots. Is there a place it might be storing this value? If so, I may be able simply to set the value as enabled, since toggling that silly button isn't working.
-----
EDIT 2:
found this thread:"Wireless disabled by hardware switch" bug? - Natty
seems to be a similar issue. I'll be following how that one develops, too.
