I just did a fresh install of 11.2 on my Thinkpad (previously running 11.1) and am having trouble with getting wifi to work properly. My wireless will not connect reliably. Sometimes it connects after reboot but then drops and will not reconnect. Below in line 4 of the status query you can see that it says DHCP4 client NOT running.

I have a broadcom 4322 and haven't successfully got it working yet. the hard drive failed in this laptop and i took it out. i am using a bootable flash drive with ubuntu on it installed. not the live edition. i am trying to find out if somehow since the hard drive is not in the laptop, if that could have anything to do with runnin off the usb flash drive it boots? i have a wired connection using the 8gb flash drive. since there are drivers for usb wifi devices which i know are different, is it possible that the wifi card is looking somewhere else instead of the usb port?
lsusb (i know i have a flash drive not a wifi usb card but this commands still shows this and ndiswrapper -l doesn't show nothing but blank next line to type on. i have tried alot of stuff
I am a newbie in rpm files, I am testing Fedora 15 (gnome3),nd I liked it, congratulations to Fedora Team, I was using Linux mint9, and I have a certainly experience with .deb files and APT, but .rpm and YUM, I am a little lost...I have a HP Pavilion dv2-1110us laptop with a Broadcom BCM 4322 wireless card; the netwokmannager said "wireless firmware missing"How can I install it?There is in the Fedora repositories?
I have a Dell Inspiron E4300 provided to me by my employer. I have installed CentOS 5 without much of a problem. The only issue is the wifi isn't working (doh!). I've had much experience with this kind of thing in the past (FreeBSD/ndiswrapper) with successes. Here are some details:
The device does not appear in dmesg :(I have installed ndiswrapper (dkms-ndiswrapper and ndisgtk from RPMForge) and provided it with the correct Windows XP driver. It has installed the driver and ndisgtk tells me that the hardware is present.
I just built my PC and loaded ubuntu on it. When the ubuntu desktop comes up everything looks ok. but when I click on any of the drop down menus, or anything else for that matter, the computer freezes immediately. I,ve tried copying the iso boot file to a new cd and reloading ubuntu but the problem remains. I've also tried removing one of the two ram sticks but again, the problem remains.

From my lspci output I get Broadcom 4313 and 0x14e4:0x4727It appears that Broadcom supports this card with their Linux STA driverBroadcom.com - 802.11 Linux STA driver guess on that page mine is 4313 2.4 Ghz 0x14e40x4727 Dell 1501even though my notebook is Toshiba.Then they say that the driver is included with Fedora and Ubuntu but nothing about OpenSuse. Then they go on about compiling the driver myself. I'm pretty sure the modules required for compiling drivers are not available on a fresh install and without Internet connection.Is there an easier way to get the driver? Could someone knowledgeable make some .rpm that I can download on another machine and put on a USB stick? Or do I have to wait until Suse developers get to it?
Or could someone make wl.ko file they are talking about on Broadcome Readme? It looks fairly easy to install the driver, if I knew exactly what to disable/blacklist and what security module to load.Another thing I got from dmesg, not sure if it's of any help, was that for this card pci entry that goes like 07:00.0 there's "support D1 D2", then "#PME supported from D0 D3hot D3cold" then the next line "#PME disabled". I've searched this forum but the only time 4313 was mentioned when someone made a mistake with the model number
trying to get wireless usb's to work with a fresh install of Squeeze and I'm having no luck!one is the rt28070 (Linksys) and the other one is a D-Link DWL-132 I'm at my wits end; trying to get this working for a friend and its driving me bananas!!
i just installed debian after about 2 weeks of using ubuntu afterriend suggested switching, and it's not detecting my wireless card in the network settings. i'm new at linux so try to keep it simple if you can please,i read the sticky about this and here's the info it said i should provide

Just tried new Fedora 11 yesterday, did a fresh install with ext3 /boot and ext4 file system, booting looks great, but wireless doesn't work. I have tried using broadcom-wl, dnmouse script, dnmouse broadcom f11 rpm, fwcutter but not ndiswrapper
Code: # lspci -vvv | grep 4312 02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01) Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company BCM4312 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller ifconfig only shows eth0, lo and pan0 interfaces, and got nothing from iwconfig...
Code: # iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. pan0 no wireless extensions.
Even tried to blacklist b43 after installing broadcom-wl driver, but no luck. Broadcom-wl works fine with Fedora 10 on my laptop, is it possibly because of the new ext4 file system? Should I try ndiswrapper or install Fedora 10 again and do a preupgrade? I also use fedora at work.
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 from a Live CD today. Everything seemed to go fine, I chose to wipe the entire disk. However, it would only startup once. Now, when I turn on my laptop, all I get is a blank screen.
I had a look at my partitions with GParted on the Live CD and noticed that there was a 1 MiB unallocated space just before it. code...
I just got done with a fresh install of 11.04. So far I like the new update and face lift. The only thing I do not like is that I can not use my laptops WiFi I have a Compaq Presario V5101US. Below info is from doing lspci command in the terminal...
I just installed a fresh Ubuntu over a Vista install on a Compaq 6720s with Wubi.But the wireless doesn't work in Ubuntu. In Vista everything is still fine.I tried two tips from the help program in Ubuntu, but to no avail. I also tried reseting and restarting. Tried the manual swith on the laptop.
I just got my self a netbook. I bought the one with linux because I figured that if they sell it with linux, it's probably using h/w which supports linux. I played around with the Mi variant it had pre-installed, but it was a bit limited and slow, so I installed UNR instead.The install went fine, and UNR is really nice to use and feels faster than the Mi too which is great. However, wireless isn't working. It's got a broadcom chipset (BCM4312) which I think needs a proprietary driver, but when I use the Hardware drivers tool, it doesn't have any options to install a driver.
I decided to do a fresh install of 10.04LTS on a Dell Latitude D600 Laptopne wordDisaster I have no wireless or WIRED internet connection. After viewing another post I've provided the output of "sudo lshw -C network" command below (I've blocked out my MAC address on purpose). It appears that the lan card is not even being recognized. The card is enabled in bios (I've checked twice). I don't get it, the wireless worked fine before I did a fresh install of 10.04LTS. I can't use wireless because I have the b43 driver firmware issue that I can't resolve unless I get my wired connection working.
I've had so many issues with 11.04 Natty that could not be solved I just fresh installed Ubuntu 10.04 from a USB as my netbook does not have a CD drive. Well, after installing and restarting I have no wireless. I ran iwconfig and I got pan0 no wireless extensions. How do I fix this?lspci says
After a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04 (from 10.04) and spending several hours trying to figure out why the ad-hoc connection between my two computers (Fedora14 <-> Ubuntu 11.04) no longer worked - it had worked fine for almost 2 years with 10.04 - I've finally concluded it was a DHCP problem. This realisation (which was slow in coming!) dawned on me when I reversed my setup and configured the Fedora box as the DHCP server and everything was suddenly working perfectly! A quick internet search threw up an installation file called "isc-dhcp-server" which other Ubuntu 11.04 - related forums are also complaining about. My problem is that this file, although available in the repository, is not even installed!!!
It seems unlikely that the developers forgot to include DHCP support, so I hope someone can point me in the right direction.
I have this weird problem after a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04: I can enter desktop using autologin but if i open a terminal i cant run anything as superuser ried:
sudo -i sudo su sudo <command> gksudo <command>
i get somthing like: error, invalid password etc etc 3 incorrect login attemtps Also if i ALT+F2 or close gnome session i cannot login back with my username, same error notes: 1. the password is right, i did a second install of ubuntu to make sure it was not my mistake 2. groups seems ok, user is in admin groups 3. I have a similar error, same computer but on an old installation that i ve updated since ubuntu 9.04 to 10.04, then 11.04 but. But here if i try the password a couple of times then i get it working.

I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10, coming from 10.04 and the wired network connection sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't. Right now I manually removed current network from System-->Preferences--> network connections, define a new one, and reboot. This usually fixes, although I've had to do this two times in the past.

I just reinstalled my OpenSuse 11.3 with the GNOME desktop. As soon as I was done installing and I was on a fresh desktop, I installed the Yast updates that were available, rebooted, and now I can't login to any of my User accounts. Whenever I try to login, it tells me that it is "Unable to Open Session".o any of you know how I can fix this without having to reinstall all over again
I ordered a SuSE 11.4 installation DVD from an online Linux Distro distributer that I've used before with no problems. I did this rather than burn my own DVD from the website. I thought that I might perform a fresh install of SuSE 11.4 on this Dell 1420 Laptop that is currently running Ubuntu 11.04.
Note, this is a completely fresh install, not a side-by-side installation with Ubuntu; I followed the installation sequence that completely repartitions the entire disk for SuSE, and accepted all of the suggested options regarding logon, etc.
Everything goes well ... sort of. The first install didn't reboot correctly, i.e., the set-up that is supposed to run after the initial install never happened and I had to manually power-down the machine and restart from the "safe mode." Needless to say, that didn't work as expected. So, I re-install, from scratch, trying different options: for instance, instead of LVM, I decide to have an un-encrypted partition scheme and accept the "obvious" options ... thinking that the LVM options interacted badly with the install. Eventually I get the installation to proceed correctly, or so it appears: it goes though the entire sequence, including the re-boot, building the default image, etc.
I test this image by removing the DVD, power-cycling the machine, and all looks good, so I begin the process of installing software updates, etc. Being paranoid, I re-boot the machine, and all restarts correctly, etc.
Now here's the annoying thing. The next day, I power the machine on, and it locks at the splash screen. By the way, these are the exact symptoms that I experienced with the bogus/incomplete installations. The boot sequence proceeds up to the splash screen and waits forever.
So, in sum: I spent inordinate amounts of time attempting to install this software, carefully following the instructions provided by the installer. In every instance, after leaving the machine off for a day or so and rebooting, I am met with a splash screen that sits forever. Needless to say, I am extremely reluctant to repeat another day of software installation to only have to re-start with no assurances of success. Either I go back to ugly Ubuntu (which has always worked out of the box, by the way), or I look at other options. I was hoping to use SuSE, but I really don't care which distro is on that machine as long as it works and it provides TeX, R, Emacs, Scheme, and a few other software packages that I'm sure are of no interest to your customer base.
After a fresh install of opensuse 11.3 x86_64, using a NET install CD, I noticed that the boot disk layout has overlapping partitions. I've noticed one other post that mentioned this at the very end. Is this a known problem already? Or is there something I'm missing that makes this okay?
I am looking to update from 11.1 to 11.3. My question is would it be better to update my current setup, or do a fresh install of 11.3? I was never able to get 11.2 to install no matter what I tried so I gave up on it and went back to my tried and true 11.1. What is the best way for me to get 11.3 on my computer?
