I just installed opensuse 11.4 and i'm not being able to connect to my wireless lan. It recognizes my network, but when I click "ok" after typing the password it is like I had done nothing, no connection is set at all.I guess it is probably some configuration stuff since my notebook recognizes all available wireless networks. Sorry about the lack of details, but that is all I got.
I am using an Asus EEE PC 900HD netbook and lately Ive been having trouble connecting to my wireless network (WPA2 secured). The WiFi adapter is a RealTek RTL8187SE. Every time I try to connect Network Manager prompts me for my WPA2 wifi security key, which already happens to be entered in the prompt. I then press Connect but after a while the prompt with the password already entered appears again without connecting to the network. I should point out that this issue only seems to happen on this network.
All other networks (including other WPA2 networks) I can connect to with ease. I have MAC address filtering enabled on this network and have the MAC address properly entered in my router and have been able to connect to my network in the past until now. I believe this is a problem with gnome-keyring as I when I first started using Ubuntu on this computer (9.04) I got confused with the whole default password for keyring thing and I messed it up so that every time I connect to this particular network the Network Manager prompt would appear and I would have to press Connect to connect to my network
[URL] I also tried deleting all my network connections and reconfiguring them to no avail. In my troubleshooting I did make an interesting discovery however. I plugged in a USB WiFi adapter (RealTek RTL8187B) thinking I could at least connect to my network and browse these forums for a solution to this problem. The USB adapter connected to the network and I was able to brose the Internet. I then disovered that I could go into into Network Manager and get the other adapter to connect. I coud then unplug the USB adapter and the other adapter stays connected and works flawlessly. how can I get my netbook WiFi adapter to connect to my network automatically?
After installing 11.4, I need to type in the command to update the firmware for a broadcom wifi adapter. Then I needed to reboot, twice, before the system knew to use the adapter (where the adapter wifi light goes from orange to blue).
Then I needed to add my wireless network and type in my key. But the key does not take. If I click on my wireless network icon, it just re-asks for the key and does not connect nor give any other message. Network icon continues to display no connection.
So I need to reboot again.
When the system starts again, the adapter is blue, I click on the icon for my wifi network and it connects without asking for my key and I can then set to start my wifi by default.
All settings are correct as far as i can tell. The wep key works on all my windows boxes. When i have connect automatically enabled it never tries to connect. if I go to edit it it pops kde wallet up i put in credentials. wallet goes away then nothing happens. if i double click connection to my router also nothing happens. I have the wep key in there and i even made it visible to make sure.
I am using OpenSuse 11.3 and Network Manager is giving me a headache by not connecting to WEP based wi-fi network.It works in a wi-fi at my office while at my home, it shows / detects the network but keeps asking me over and over.
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 a mac and an openSUSE box connected wirelessly to a router. From my mac, if I ping the Linux machine by both ip address and hostname "elmo.local", I get a response. If I ping my mac from the Linux machine using its ip address, I get a response. However, if I ping the mac from the Linux box using its name "kermit.local" - nothing!
This means in order to share files between them via the network, I have to use the ip address rather than name, but I'd rather not. When I had Ubuntu installed instead of openSUSE this all worked fine out of the box, so I'm assuming it's a problem with the setup of openSUSE rather than the router or the mac.
On Opensuse 11.2, I would like to connect my ipod touch to a wireless ad-hoc network of my laptop. I have no wireless WIFI-router at home, so I have to use the laptop as a router to the internet. I know I have to enter a static IP adres and my router's address, but where ? I haven't found any place under network tools to do this, only saw some fields with SSID's and MAC addresses to fill in.
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'm moving from other distros. and I'm currently loving openSUSE and I'm probably going to stick with it for a long time.I have already googled for this, but I found no solution, but I figured this should be a common problem... Does google searches inside this forum?Now... for my problem, whenever I hibernate (suspend to disk) or sleep (suspend to ram) I can't resume my wireless connection nor connect to another.I don't know if this is an issue if I use cables, because I simply don't with my netbook:The hardware in question is an ASUS 1005HA eee pc, running openSUSE version is 11.3 fully updated. Didn't mess with wireless connections, nor kernel or hibernate settings
I just installed OpenSuse 11.1 on a netbook via network install. It's a dual boot with windows XP. In XP, the wireless card works perfectly, but in openSuse, it never connects. It cann see the wireless networks available but it won't connect to my network!
I even tried this to no avail: Wireless will not work when dual-boot with Windows XP&Vista | SUSE & openSUSE
Asus EEE 1002 HA Wireless Card: Atheros AR928X Wireless Network Adapter WPA2 (although when I switched the router to WPA, it still didn't work)
The weird thing is during install I told it to test the wireless card and it worked, but now it doesn't.
One of the biggest issues i have at the moment is that my network based plasmoids on my KDE desktop load before my wireless network connection is established, so i'm thinking it would be best to start up the wireless connection at boot time. On previous distro's, I did this with netcfg but I can't seem to figure out how to do so in OpenSUSE 11.2. Is this the best way to manage this issue or is it possible to set a delay before the plasmoids load up?
I have a D-link dir-635 firmware v. 2.30eu (latest) and a USB WLAN adapter D-link DWA-140 802.11n. The driver seems to be installed correctly since lsusb lists it correctly and all the wireless networks in the vicinity are detected including mine. When I try to connect however NetworkManager says it is activating but after awhile the windows with the newtork password appers. dmesg output:
[ 5509.487262] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:1c:f0:71:03:88 try 1 [ 5509.684014] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:1c:f0:71:03:88 try 2 [ 5509.884020] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:1c:f0:71:03:88 try 3 [ 5510.084014] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:1c:f0:71:03:88 timed out
So it is able to determine the AP:s mac address but each time it times out.
I have tried disabling the security on the router but no luck.
Not sure what to try next. I have checked some of the tips supplied in these forums but none seem to handle the issue I am having.
an issue with my broadcom wireless that is using the bcm4312 driver. I installed the b43(?) cutter firmware from the command line and now my network is detected but it just won't actually connect to it. My router has wpa security enabled but i think it worked with it before.
While my wireless is generally working, there's one problem: I can't connect to my home network through it on my laptop. My desktop (which has an Atheros-based wireless card and is configured through ifup) connects just fine, as does another family member's laptop (also with an Atheros chip, but using NetworkManager) My laptop (With an Intel Centrino wireless chip), however, will not connect to the home router, though it can connect to public (unprotected) access points such as the one at my school. My home network is a private (hidden) network and also requires a WEP key to connect to and, as mentioned, works fine with several other systems running 11.3. I've attempted to use both ifup and NetworkManager and can't connect using either method. With ifup, the connection attempt just seems to time out during the connection attempt, while with NetworkManager, it doesn't even seem to try: I select the connection that I defined and click "Connect" and nothing happens after that. I'm using KDE and installed from the LiveCD
I am using an HP laptop dv8000 series FYI. I started with a fresh install of OS11.2. The first thing I tried was to connect to a network through the gui net manager. This got me nowhere (nothing detected). I then noted that the card was not getting any signal/not functioning. My card is enabled from on the laptop.
I connected my laptop via ethernet and executed this command: Code: sudo /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware which returned no errors and seems to have completed successfully.
Using the dmesg | grep firmware command I now get the following: Code: SuSE-Laptop:~ # dmesg | grep firmware [41.246079] b43 ssb0:0: firmware: requesting b43/ucode5.fw [41.268643] b43 ssb0:0: firmware: requesting b43/pcm5.fw [41.320790] b43 ssb0:0: firmware: requesting b43/b0g0initvals5.fw [41.369098] b43 ssb0:0: firmware: requesting b43/b0g0bsinitvals5.fw [41.591065] b43-phy0: Loading firmware version 410.2160 (2007-05-26 15:32:10) SuSE-Laptop:~ #
Now the option to enable wireless in my systray (I know wrong name) has become unselectable. Now what do I do?
I recently installed 11.3, I was able to get my wireless working. However only using the "traditional method with ifup", I could not connect with network manager. I remembered last time I installed 11.2, it was suggested that the wired connection was taking precedence, which was the initial reason I went the traditional route. I changed the wired connection to "on cable connection" and the wireless to "boot time" but still no luck. So are both methods fine and its just a matter of preference, I would prefer to use knetwork manager.
I have BCM4312 Dell wireless 1397 WLAN mini-card.I run Code:sudo /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware to install a firmware and know I managed to see all the networks I have around me, but I can't connect to any of them (using the correct password).
my problem is that i am only connect mi laptop dell inspiron n4010 to the internet wired or wireless only if reboot pc, doesn recognize any network if i turn on my pc and then connect wired or wireless..
but after a few seconds the 192.168.1.56 disappears and after some other seconds disappears the inet6 address too. When I press in the nm-applet it requires me the password but in the meantime it try to connect.
At uni, the connection is a DHCP one. It works for the first few seconds but after it doesn't.
Any possible solution?
Here it is the relevant part of the syslog: (static ip configuration) http://pastebin.com/u3BPAsda
Desktop that has wireless built into motherboard worked in 11.3 (as best as I can remember, don't really use it normaly). Trying to connect to my wireless router (only one I have rights to).Wireless router is WEP with opensystem authentication, works fine for laptop (Windows)Networkmanager scans and displays local networks
I am unable to connect to a WEP-protected network. the Network manager log shows either a DHCP timeout, or a failure to associate. (attached below).Changing to WPA is not an option, as the network is not controlled by me. This is with the rt61pci driver for a Ralink 2500 series chipset.(Rosewill RNX-G300EX card)Manually forcing an IP does not result in a connection either. This is with the latest OpenSuSE 11.4, all patches applied. Router is a D-Link DIR-613, and I know the passphrase I'm using is correct because it connects both on my Android (what else?) phone, and my lappy when I boot XP.
