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:
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.
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.
What do you think? Wife just bought a new Compaq 610 series laptop. These are the wireless specs:
Code: 10:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection (rev 02) 30:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. Unknown device 4357 (rev 10) Strange thing is when I ping the router, I get this, pings one time then dies: Code: anna@katie:~$ ping 192.168.0.1 PING 192.168.0.1 (192.168.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
I'm new to linux and I install ubuntu on my wifes laptop since it will hopefully slow down the amount of problems I have to resolve.I ran the live cd of ubuntu and wireless was working all ok, showed my wife around and she was like ok install it.I used the GUI and install ubuntu, and updated (apt-get update) after that the wireless is not working.I see the device, but have no idea whats wrong. Please could someone inform me as to which things to post in order to get it sorted. Since this seems to be the only issue.
I'm new to linux. I've just installed Ubuntu 11.04. It has all been going ok, but the wireless just stopped working all of a sudden. The indicator light turned off and when I tried to turn it back on (Fn+F2) nothing happens. Sometimes, when I restart the computer, the wireless might work; but if the signal is lost the LED on my laptop turns off and I cannot reconnect. Also, in these strange cases that the wireless works when I restart I can manually turn it off (Fn+F2), but nothing happens when I try to switch it back on.
In the menu on the upper right corner I see 'Enable Networking' is checked, but 'Enable Wireless' cannot be modified.
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 and the wireless device is an Intel Pro/Wireless 3945ABG. I have tried to follow some of the threads on this forum on similar cases, but the ones that were comprehensible to me did not work (or I actually might not have understood them either). code...
Now i`m connected with a lan cable, if i plug it off, the wifi comes up saying "connected" (on the computer status on the bottom left). But nothing is connected... (the wifi switch is on).
i really like Opensuse and hate windows, i`ve been using it for years and now i can`t stand it anymore ! i wanna get familiar with this os but cant do s**t without wifi! everything works fine except from the wifi!!
the ip address is - DHCP module name - iwl3945 device name - wlan0 operating mode - managed ifup change hostname vis dhcp in ticked same for the one below
It's also because I've never had any big problem. The last openSUSE I used without problems was/is 11.2(I still use it as main desktop because of problems since 11.3).The problem is - the DL speed is repeatedly drops down to around 156KB/s albeit my top speed of router-NIC combination is at 21-22MB/s. When this happen and open network manager and click/reload my wifi or restart wireless or even computer, the speed is back at the top. But after few seconds, minutes it drops down again, and so on. I made some images(to see it on the network manager draphs):after that drop-off:and restart wireless:Best chance to see it is when downloading more files with FreeRapidDownloader or JDownloader. Upload speed is OK. The first time I've seen this problem in 11.3, which i've skipped in hope that 11.4 will be ok and now, as the EOL of 11.2 is coming I'd like to go on.It's also desktop and installation media independent(Gnome works similar, DVD, LiveCD).I've checked many other distributions and none of them had this problem. But openSUSE is my love, so i need and want to solve it
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.

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.
My openSUSE's working unstable and very slowly! Wireless is starting very late.It appears 10min later after i loggen in,and wants me to enter wireless password.This windows is showing up so late,and I can't connect internet before it shows up.
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.
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:

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.
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.
I have a strange problem with my laptop and need your help in resolving it...i am using a Dell Studio XPS 1645..i have got everything working except the wireless.. and the real problem here is that the wlan detects the network but does not connect to it and will keep on looping back and forward doing the same thing again and again..I am using Opensuse 11.4 with Gnome 3 Shell..here is details of the commands that i tried using to fix the issue
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.
I have an IBM Thinkpad T60, running Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) with a dual boot of Windows XP. I am having trouble getting it to connect to my home wireless network, which uses WEP. It connected fine at my university when I first installed Lucid, but has not connected at home. I can see the network in the panel applet, with a good signal strength, but when I try to connect it repeatedly asks me for my key and never actually connects. I had this problem shortly before I installed Lucid, though it was working for a long time previously. I'm not sure what update caused it to stop working because I was at my university at the time, and it works fine there even now, so I didn't realize it right away.
I doubt this is a hardware issue because I can connect to the same network when I boot into Windows. I have seen posts about similar problems on the forums, but couldn't find any solutions that helped me.
Below is the information the wireless help guide said to post. Machine Brand and Model: IBM Thinkpad T60
I installed Maverick earlier today on a Dell XPS M1210, and everything works beautifully, except for one thing: the wireless card. It is an Intel 3945ABG wireless card, and I've tried searching around and have found nothing,
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?

I am unable to get my intel pro/wireless 3945abg connected to my router. The firmware has been installed and at first was even able to connect, but now the access point doesn't even show up in network manager. I am currently able to connect using a USB wireless adapter, but for certain reasons, would prefer to use the former. I've looked over this page with no results.
I have my laptop dual booted between Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7. In Ubuntu I randomly lose connection to the wireless network. It always works fine when I first boot into Ubuntu but after a while my wireless connection will go down. The signal strength meter will go to zero bars and the black popup message will appear that my wireless connection has disconnected. At first, if I just wait a bit, the connection will come back. However, after about 4 or 5 times of doing this it will then ask me for my password, and inputting the password does not reconnect me to the AP. I am finally forced to reboot. Then it works OK for a while again and the cycle repeats.
It works fine in Windows7 all day, every day. I have the Release Candidate of Windows7 so it's going to expire soon. I would really prefer to make Ubuntu my everyday OS on this laptop rather than pay for a Windows7 license but I cannot tolerate a flaky wireless connection.
I had 8.1 on this laptop at one point and I never had any problems with the wireless then, that I can remember. I had no Ubuntu for a while but then I came back with the 9.1 and was loving it until the wireless problem reared it's ugly head.

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.
I M USING HP G42 NOTEBOOK. JUST IIIIINSTALLED OPENSUSE 11.3.WIRED ETHERNET IS WORKING BUT WIRELESS IS ABSENT.I USE WIN 7 HOME BASIC AS WELL IN THE SAME SYSTEM AND WIRELESS IS WORKING.I M TOTALLY NEW TO THIS SO JUST ASK ME ANYTHING YOU ALL NEED TO KNOW AND I WILL COMPLY.
I want to switch my laptop from XP to Ubuntu, but right now, i cant risk installing it. i dont want to have it partitioned so i can dual boot, so for now i only run the try-it-out mode.Before i consider installing though, i want to see if i can get everything to work ahead of time, that way im not regreting instalation. I have a Compaq Presario V2000 laptop, with 55GB hard drive and 516MB ram. So far, the trial mode is working great, but the wireless will not work. Ive tried to install the driver, but i am unable to do so. I have looked this up, and i have tried many things, and so far, none have worked.I was wondering if it was just part of the trial thing or not, but it is a Broadcom Wireless BCM4318 driver
