I recently installed OpenSUSE 11.2 and everything works fine except wi-fi card, of course. The problem is that after installation the system recognized the card (is was listed in network devices in Yast) but I was unable to enable it through network-manager applet. Though the device could make scanning through terminal (found article in docs but didn't fully understand wpa_gui). Then i was stupid enough to delete the device from Yast list to try to reinstall it. So the problem is that i simply can't do this cause i see no way to re-detect. That is the goal is to at least turn back to post-install system state and try to enable wifi card again.
When I attempt to connect to a wireless network, the network manager asks me for the network's password, then says 'setting network address' for 20 or so seconds, then asks me for some random Hex or ASCII key in the same type of window I put the password in (Secrets for Noel -- KDE Daemon). Since a key is already typed into the window, I press OK, which then causes the network manager to go back to 'setting network address', then the window pops up again and keeps repeating itself.
I'm running Opensuse 11.4 with KDE, and my driver is ath9k. I don't know much about linux so please don't tell me to 'recompile this' or 'change this setting' without explaining how to do it. Please help, I've been unable to connect to wireless in OpenSUSE for 2 weeks now.
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.
Our corporate wireless network uses continuously changing passwords with RSA tokens.So every time we need to connect to the wireless we need to enter a new password off the RSA token. For extra fun using the wrong password a couple of times in a row causes the users account to be locked.Network manager automatically stores and reuses the password, with the net result that it is constant getting my account locked.Is there some way to prevent it from storing my password for that network?
I am a Windows refugee who discovered Ubuntu as a way to save my files from my virus-ravaged computer. Had no installation discs for Windows, so when I had to wipe my hard drive and start over, I decided to give Ubuntu a try. I've had mixed success, but that's another post...
Right now, the problem is that I installed 10.10 two weeks ago and was able to connect to the Internet with no problems - until yesterday. Suddenly, our wireless network (the only one in the vicinity) does not come up as available in Network Manager. In fact, the entire wireless option disappeared. I know there are many posts and threads on here about this, but weeding through them trying to find an answer is more frustrating than actually dealing with the problem. I know the router works because I can post on this forum from the Macbook. I really like Ubuntu and would like to keep using it, but not being able to connect to the Internet now on top of the other issues I've had is making me doubt I want to continue down this Linux road.
P.S. When I attempted an analysis through System Testing, it said something about there being no proprietary drivers?
I finally installed openSUSE along side ubuntu and xp in my ThinkPad EDGENow I am facing issue with toggling the wi-fi, I had no such problem in ubuntu.Seems like there is some issue in the thinkpad-acpi module.I use fn+F9 to toggle the wifi, which toggles both bluetooh and wifi, but on openSUSE it only toggles bluetooth.acpi_listen in ubuntu gives me the below result when I press fn+F9ibm/hotkey HKEY 00000080 00001005but in openSUSE its blank but bluetooth gets toggled. dmesg from ubuntu:
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.
This is a brand new install of 11.4. While trying to set u p for wireless, when I click on network manager it does not open. Do I need to re-install? I am using a Toshiba Satellite , dual booting with XP. The install was seamless, and picked up all my files from the previous distro. Now the big bugaboo, wireless, but I can't seem to get oout of the starting gate if I can't get to network manager?
I happened to Fedora 13 that the network manager does not indicate any wifi network and I had to turn off the notebook for a while and then recover, this also happened to me 2 or 3 times on ubuntu 10.04 too. my card is an Atheros AR5007EG.
i looking to replace network manager on my laptop with another wireless program. iv been looking at Swscanner, Rutilt wlan manager, and wicd network manager. iv had trouble with network manager not being able to connect or losing connection fairly easy. im using a gateway m6843 running ubuntu 10.04 32 bit os.
I'm having a new problem with my wireless. It's detecting the network, but it won't connect. My Verizon card says it's WEP, but the WICD has three WEP options and none of them connect. What troubleshooting can I do?
My C++ program must be able to detect EVERY Wireless Network Interfaces under Linux operating system and display the interface names on the screen.How can my application achieve this?Is there any sample codes?Is there any third party libraries can do this?Notes: The detected wireless network interfaces should also include the virtual interfaces, like the one created by Aircrack-NG's Airmon-NG script.
I have a rtl8192e card and the drivers and everything are set up properly. I can not connect to WEP encrypted networks using network manager. I can however connect using iwconfig and dhcpcd. I uninstalled network manager and installed WICD and have the same problem. It will connect to the access point when it is configured with WPA, but not WEP which we need to use for the other computer. In the status bar of WICD it looks like it is trying to configure the encryption as WPA no matter what I select. I've looked in the config files for WICD and can't see anything that would do it.
I am using fedora 14 on lenovo laptops and android 1.6 I created a wireless network on my laptop with create a wireless network. But it was not detected by my android 1.6 phone. Same wireless network created on my MacbookPro is detected by the phone.
Even thought my Westel Model 7500 has the appropriate green lines (Power, Wireless, DSL, Internet), it always takes my Ubuntu 9.04, Dell Inspiron 1545n considerable effort to connect to the wireless network. Please note that I am using WPA security and MAC filtering.Below is the series of events, spanning about 10 minutes every time I boot up the laptop.1. Tries to connect wirelessly automatically.2. Pop-up appears with SSID and password in dots.3. Tries to connect wirelessly4. Pp-up appears with SSID and password in dots.5. Tries to connect wirelessly6. Pop-up appears with SSID and password in dots.7.Tries to connect wirelessly then says "[SSID Name] now disconnected"At this point I manually connect to wireless and after 45 seconds it says "[SSID Name] now connected"
I have an Atheros ar5007eg wireless card, and I haven't had problems with this card in GNOME. However, when I made the switch to KDE recently, I can't connect to any wireless networks. A wired connection works fine (that's how I'm writing this), but when I try to connect to any wireless network, it hangs at Acquiring IP Address, then asks me for my WEP key again, I enter it, and the process starts over. I tried using WICD, but I'm not sure if I set it up properly.
Installed openSUSE 11.3 over an existing 'very stable' 11.2 installation and started experiencing wireless connectivity issues immediately. Network Manager would show connected 100% - 92% but I would lose connectivity to mail, browser and messenger(s). This disconnect would last less than 30 secs but would occur every 2 to 4 minutes.
[ 3663.672098] iwl3945 0000:03:00.0: Failed to get channel info for channel 3  [ 3664.101085] iwl3945 0000:03:00.0: Failed to get channel info for channel 3  [ 3664.529050] iwl3945 0000:03:00.0: Failed to get channel info for channel 3 
BTW Channel 3 is the channel my wifi is broadcasting on. I've tried other channels and other computers and it is only openSUSE 11.3 having an issue. I am also using WPA2. Modifying the Global Options in Network Settings from User Controlled with NetworkManager to Traditional Method with ifup seemed to stabilize most of the issues, but I do notice occasional drops. I've also switched from Network Manager to wicd to provide some UI while dealing with this issue. Since iwl3945 drivers are now in the kernel I don't know if I should try to revert to an older driver or if there is another issue.
I just installed OpenSuSE 11.3 on an old IBM T20 I had kicking around and I'm using a Proxim Wireless PCMCIA Card (Atheros AR5001X). Since this laptop does not have a DVD drive I installed the system using the Netboot CD and have the SuSE 11.3 ISO on an NFS/SAMBA file server. The issues appeared after the first reboot, the adapter no longer worked. I resorted to using the wired interface to finish the install.
Once the system was up followed the trouble shooting steps outlined in various places and found the ESSID is not being picked up by the ifup scripts. Not sure if it matters but I have ESSID broadcasts turned off on all my WAPs.
The ESSID is in ifcfg-wlan0. To get wireless working I have to manually issue iwconfig wlan0 essid "xxxx"..
I recently made an Ubuntu 8.10 partition on my windows XP Latitude E5400. Using windows xp I can connect to my dlink wireless network that is not protected. Using Ubuntu 8.10 I can connect to my neighbours wireless non-protected network, however my own dlink network is not shown in network manager and I can not connect to it?
I have a minor problem with Knetwork-manager. When I boot up, it won't connect to my wireless router automatically. I have to right-click the taskbar icon, disable wireless, then enable wireless, then it connects fine.It remembers the password fine and once it's connected, it's flawless. It's just the minor issue of having to effectively 'switch the internet on' rather than it just being connected when I turn on my laptop.
I'm using Opensuse 11.2, KDE 4.3.1 (didn't have this issue with 11.1). I've tried the latest Kubuntu (9.10) and knetwork-manager worked flawlessly but I didn't like the rest of the OS so I came back to Opensuse If I restart, suspend or hibernate it usually connects okay, it just seems to be when I boot from 'cold'.
I've tried nm-applet but same problem. I also tried wicd but it didn't really like my system. I've changed my wireless router recently as well with no change, so I don't think it's that. As I say it's a minor problem, it's not really an issue for me to turn it on each time but it would be nice to clear it up. I've googled and searched since 11.2 was released but haven't found any answers and my linux skills are still a bit lacking.
I'm on opensuse 11.4 (11.3 won't work with my monitor).
My computer gets internet through wireless and I want to share that internet through its ethernet port. So far I've tried using Knetworkmanager to create a network bridge between my wireless and wired connections. I created a new wired connection and shared it using the ip address settings. I was able to get both connections active, but the device hooked up via ethernet had no internet connectivity.
I also tried this command: echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
but another test resulted in the same fashion (no internet on wired). I believe anything I add to /proc should have an immediate effect, correct?
