OpenSUSE Network :: AR928X Wireless Card Not Working
Mar 11, 2010
I have a AR928X wireless card and everything I have tried has failed. The default driver ath9k scans and connects to my router but cant connect to any site or ping anything , same with the madwifi driver

I have a dwa-125 dlink wireless card which will not work. This is my first time using OpenSuse 11.2 (Well OpenSuse period). I had the same problem with Ubuntu 9.10 as well. If it will help the solution I used with Ubuntu is here: [ubuntu] Dlink DWA-125 Wireless Card Issue - Page 4 - Ubuntu Forums. I'd rather use OpenSuse than Ubuntu.
Well this my first time working with linux and openSUSE, and I love it. But one problem I can't overcome is my network card is not working. I went to bestbuy and bought the dynex enchanced wireless G card. Model # dx-ebnbc ver. 1011
I installed wine to run the .exe but that did nothing and gave me that the dll is not registered. openSUSE detects that the card is plugged in but the card does not light up or activate in anyway. The only way I can connect to the net is through an Ethernet cable.
I'm trying to find a driver for my wireless card (Atheros AR928X) and I think it's ath9k what I need. As far as I know there isn't a linux driver for it, so I installed ndiswrapper to use a windows driver instead. The problem is that when I type modprobe ndiswrapper I get "bash: modprobe: command not found" (even as root). I know I'm missing something about modprobe, but I can't find any help on google. Anyway, I installed ndisgtk next, because I thought it would be easier, but when I go to System> Administration> Windows Wireless Drivers I get a message "Unknown error".Do you have any ideas on how I'll make ndiswrapper work?
I just installed OpenSuSE 11.3 x86_64, and as I'm new to OpenSuSE I can't get my wireless to work. I believe it should work because it worked out of the box in Ubuntu (9.10 and 10.04)
At first I didn't see any network icon in the notification area, but after some googling figured out to enable NetworkManager instead of ifup. Now there is an icon, and clicking it I can see wireless networks, but when I try to connect it tries for a while, then seems to give up.

4 ) what you have tried to rectify the problem.
Tried to install all the patches.
5 ) any trouble-shooting guide you have tried to follow. - The previous two stickies
6 ) openSUSE version 11.3
7 ) type /sbin/lspci -v" in a terminal; copy and paste the section that identifies your wireless card and it's chipset. 07:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

I clicked "Network Settings", and I found that the ip address was wrong, which is "192.168.1.10/24", and netmask field is empty, so I modifed the configuration file located in /etc/sysconfig/network, named ifcfg-wlan0, added one line(NETMASK= '255.255.255.0'), saved it and reboot the system. After rebooting the system, I still found the ip address is wrong and netmask field is empty, so I have to use ifup command to activate my card manually every time the system starts.
I am running SLED 11 and My Networkcard is Intel PRO/Wireless 5300. In short, it is not there anymore! I mean I was connected and everything and the next time I restarted It could not detect any wireless network. I deleted the wireless network card in hopes that the OS will automatically detect it on startup and set it right but NOPE. When I check the hardware information in YAST, it is listed there and it is also working under Windows.
i've installed openSuse 11.2 on my laptop (dell studio 15).Today at work i tried to connect to the wireless network, but i couldn't. First, the network card wasn't being recognized, but after a long time trying i was able to set it up, for this i used this command:
Code: zypper in broadcom-wl broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop So now, the networkmanager detects all the networks around, but i cannot (or i don't know
I have an acer lab top and OpenSuSE 11.2 installed but now the wireless card is not working. With ubuntu I had a tool called jokey to install missing drivers. Does there exist a jockey version (rpm not deb) for OpenSUSE or is there i simillar tool.
I am trying openSUSE after a long break from Linux, but I am running into the original issue I ran into several years ago which made me decide not to use this distro. My LAN card is working fine, and I can get internet hardwired into my router, but I am not having any luck getting my wireless card recognized or working. Also, my notification area on my taskbar (sorry for the Windows terms) is not showing any sort of network status icon.
I have gone Computer>Install Software> and installed the b43 fwcutter thing from the repos, and have also run the following command in terminal: sudo /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware In Network Settings in YaST, my NIC is showing, but I am still not seeing my Wireless card.
I can't get on the Internet at all not even through Ethernet. (It recognized my Ethernet hardware but doesn't connect.) I got the broadcom-wl drivers from Packman and installed those and it still was a no go. I tried to get the drivers straight from Broadcom and those didn't work. I couldn't compile the source code from the Brodcom site because i could not get build installed (got make installed but build just didn't install.)

So decided to try a fresh install as ubuntu was having issues every update for me. Regardless i can't seem to get my wireless working and i'd really appreciate some help as i have no idea what i'm doing.
Using a hp pavilion dv5 1235dx.So my network card does show up it's a broadcom 4312 pci id 4315.Installed the b43 & wl drivers but it didn't help. The hardware switch is stuck at orange but in ubuntu it would function despite this(sometimes ).
I read through the sticky of wireless card not working, and I followed through with the steps, with the exception of looking for firmware, because I'm certain it has it, being that the card works when I'm running Windows, and overall the system recognizes the device.
The only difference is, I notice that the activity light on the card itself does not turn on when running openSUSE. It recognizes the card, it even detects the network, but when I enter the WEP key and finish, it does nothing afterwards. Still no internet.
To become familiar with unix I decided to install a partition of openSUSE. I'm currently running 11.4 and how to get my wireless card working. I know that I have an RTL8188CE. I downloaded the realtek drivers from Realtek However, when I try to execute the make command I get the following error:
make: *** /lib/modules/126.96.36.199-0.5-default/build: No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [all] Error 2
I've made sure that I've installed the packages in both the base development and the C, C++ packages. I looked under the base development package and know for sure that i have make installed. I'm not really what i'm missing
A wifi card with the ath5k driver used to work properly until a couple of weeks ago. Now, if I ping the router the response times sometimes are okay but often fluctuate into the range of many hundreds or thousands of milliseconds. Occasionally the connection breaks down entirely.My laptop, which uses a different card, works fine (typical ping response times of 2 ms), so its probably not the router which is faulty.I use opensuse 11.3 x86_64, currently with the 188.8.131.52-0.7 desktop kernel and knetworkmanager
I am having trouble getting a Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller to work on openSuSE 11.3. Most of the data for the problem is in this pastebin of the output of Framp's collectNWData.sh. I have also downloaded drivers for this card as detailed below.
I have a hp zd 7000, i really like this laptop, the onboard ethernet will not work at all. i purchased a dynex wired ethernet pcmcia card to get on the internet with. i have had no luck getting on the internet with it it will light up so i am getting power but no transmitting light works at all i have three net work cards listed in the system. one is the wireless. and the other two are the wired eth0 is the onboard and eth2 is the dynex what can i do next to determine the problem i do not use the wireless at all.
I installed 10.3 (after buying it a couple of years ago and letting sit on the shelf) and can't get it to configure my ethernet connection or my wireless card. Yast doesn't include a list of available cards, and the error I get in installation-network setup is that the kernel isn't present. The machine I'm installing this on is a Lenovo, in which there isn't a discrete ethernet card (it's in the motherboard), but my wireless card (a Cisco LINKSYS 802.11G) is a discrete card. Because I'm divorcing Microsoft for a number of valid reasons, I don't have Windows available on that box.
i installed suse (KDE) on my old notebook and now I'm trying to get the wlan to connect to our router and can't figure out how to get it to work. My card seems to work, the network manager even finds the router, but i just cant get a connection. I followed the steps of the "Getting Your Wireless to Work" thread and these are the results:
- i messed around a bit with the network settings and might have cluelessly broken something (or broken it more)
- i tried a usb-wlan-card as an alternative, which didn't work either, but could possibly have messed things up even more.
wifi card:atheros ar5007egOS: openSUSE11.4My laptop can't connect on network after system hibernate. It has been asking me for enter the wifi password. But when I input the wifi password it still can't connect on network. I have to reboot it.
i have installed openSUSE 11.2 on a dell dimension 2400. My Ethernet card wasn't working, so i am using a wireless interface, but it doesn't work either. It worked on a dell dimension 4400, but when it gets to the activate network my system freezes. Should i re-install my system, or should i post this under the hardware category.
I've installed opensuse 11.2 on an old IBM thinkpad. The install went without a hitch and when I got to the desktop I inserted my Dlink DWL-G132 wireless USB adapter. Opensuse immediately recognised that a wireless device was attached and I could see my wireless network listed. I entered my WPA password and was able to connect to my routers configuration page by entering 192.168.0.1 in the URL bar of firefox. For some reason I am unable to navigate to any webpage. When I enter a URL firefox acts as though there is no internet connection. The only way I can get the internet on my laptop is to connect it to my router with a cable. I used a wired connection and ran the update utility thinking that perhaps an update would fix the issue but it did not. I know the adapter works because the laptop used to have windows xp installed and I could connect fine with that.
Does anyone here have any idea why I would be able to connect wirelessly to the routers configuration page but not to the internet? I appreciate any advice anyone may have.
When I press the red LED touch button below the screen to turn it on, nothing happens. Also the LED that indicates that the wireless is on stays red and does not turn blue. I have dual boot on and tested it under Windows 7 where everything works fine, so I know the internal wireless card and touch key is working. Just not in OpenSuse. I am using the KDE plasma desktop.
