Im a Linux newbie and am running OpenSuse 11.3 (Gnome, 220.127.116.11-0.5-desktop Kernel) and Ive an Asus N13 wifi dongle (linux compatible). I currently connect using my laptopÅ internal wifi but I bought the dongle due to trouble with weak signal. It came with some sort of code that can be "compiled" but I havent got a clue how to do that (and I have been researching this matter for quite some time now). I then came across a post where someone with the same USB stick created and added only two small files to his filesystem and it worked...for him (maybe becasuse he was on a different Distro )
Ralink RT2870 USB Stick and created the two files mentioned in the post (network_drivers.rules and network_drivers.conf) and placed them in ETC... etc, etc! I rebooted the system but NetworkManager only lists it as "device not ready" ... So now back to square one.
I have recently installed Fedora 10 onto my PC, dual booting with XP, and I am fairly new to linux. I have been trying to connect to my wireless network, but cannot even get Fedora to recognise my wireless adapter (Belkin N1 +MIMO). I have tried to follow a few tutorials that go through either the ndiswrapper method or by using native drivers. Because I don't have an internet connection on Fedora, I have to boot into XP to download the files for either ndiswrapper or the native drivers, rather than installing using the terminal.I downloaded the ndiswrapper RPM, and it failed because of an 'unexpected error', and when using the tarball, it could not find the makefile. The native drivers did not install because of unresolved dependencies.
I have a Ralink rt2870 chip. Since it did not work with 11.2 out of the box (should it not be in the kernel?), I had to install this driver from the software search area on opensuse.org:
After installing it, it works, but only at reduced speed, (I think), because when keeping the mouse over the list item (of that connection) in Network Manager, a window pops up saying I only have 54Mbit/s.
It says: Type: WiFI Interface: ra Hardware adress: 00:15: ..... Driver: usb Status: connected Bit rate: 54 Mbit/s
I have installed opensuse 11.2 on a second partition, with the ultimate aim of leaving windows altogether. Unfortunately, I seem to be having terrible trouble (as do many others) getting my wireless internet connection working. I have viewed lots of posts in these forums and done everything I can think of, but since I am a linux novice, am unable to identify the problem. The card is working, since it can identify local SSIDs, it has been set up (to the best of my knowledge) correctly in YAST, but nothing seems to work. I'll include some information I have recorded from my system.. I typed the commands below with the accompanying output listed:
In a nutshell, it outlines a rather daft snag when running Ubuntu (10.04 and on) with regards to strange and quite frankly ludicrous wireless behavior concerning RaLink cards in Asus netbooks. The M.O. of a netbook is portable netz, yet it seems ENTIRELY impossible with this hardware setup Any geniuses care to have a stab? All outputs are included in the original post.
I have new emachine 1401 and I can't get it to connect to wireless. It does detect networks but when connecting keeps asking for password over and over and never connects. I don't have wired connection at all and the wifi router is not managed by me, so I'm retyping output through my windows xp samsung netbook which works over the same wireless network...
I have tries some other solutions I found around here (install bcmwl-kernel-source, rt3090-dkms_18.104.22.168, blacklist rt2800pci...) so it's not original configuration but behaves exactly the same.
Under OpenSuse 11.2 i cannot connect to my wireless network. Sometimes computer doesn't see network, sometimes computer cannot connect to it. Encryption: WPA & WPA2 Personal Kernel driver: ath5k Also I am embarrassed that in lspci and yast written various models of my wifi adapter.
I have an HP DV6 3143se which has a Ralink 3090 wifi card in it.the only thing that doesn't work at the moment is the Wifi. I tried installing the Linux backports module, but the trouble is that sometimes, my home wifi network is shown on the list of available networks and most often, it's not. when the network does show up, and i click on it and enter my WPA2 password, it takes ages to handshake and then it tells me that my password is wrong. the same password works in windows 7 so something's not working.
when i try to disable and re enable wireless network on the network manager applet, i get a Wireless device not ready or Network manager not running message.
I just purchased a RALINK WIRELESS G PCMCIA WIFI CARD VISTA/LINUX (UBUNTU)â. It is supposed to be UBUNTU plug and play out of the box with no driver downloads needed.
I installed it but could not find a way to search the active Wi-Fi networks available like on my Actiontec card on windows xp. The wireless router/ethernet I have is an Actiontec setup for Qwest-DSL and Actiontec is the name of the wireless network.
Strangely I tried to choose setup a "new network" and entered Actiontec as the network name and it found the network and said it was connected to it. However the internet still is not working?
I just installed Fedora 13, and now I figured, maybe I don't know so much about pc anyway. Before I tell you my problem, I would like to say that I know a lot about windows, but about linux, I don't know anything. A plain beginner. And about my problem, it's more like a "how to" question than a problem.
You see, I don't know how to set up the wifi? The pc has installed wifi, and all I need to know is how I can connect to the internet. In windows you would usually just press the connection icon and then choose witch network you would like to access, and then eventually type in the password, and there you go. But it seems it's a little more advanced at Fedora. But I will give it a shot.
this is my first attempt to get into Linux (10.04 Lucid Lynx), and I'm eager to learn. The problem is however that i can't connect to the internet using my USB wifi dongle (Jensen 25150). I've tried what this link says:I've tried to blacklist rt2800usb, rt2x00lib, rt2x00usb and rt2870sta and to load "/etc/modules/rt3070sta", but no luck in that, so I simply do not know what to do next. Perhaps I haven't blacklisted them the right way? I've typed in the commands and saved Gedit and closed it. Is that the right way?
Just got a secondhand Asus EeePC 100P netbook, fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10, and while I can connect to my wireless network and access the router through the browser, I can't connect to the internet. Pinging any other sites, either by domain name or IP, doesn't work. I've tried various things suggested in similar threads (putting in the DNS server info manually, disabling ipv6, restarting about a gazillion times), but nothing's worked so far. (My other computer, a Mac, can connect just fine.)
Attempted to install ndiswrapper, failed miserably, and I'm not sure if that's just for situations where the wifi itself doesn't work?
I'd be very grateful for any suggestions.
Here's what's under Connection Information at the moment:Interface: 802.11 WiFi (wlan0)
I have an Atheros ar2427 chip in my Asus EEE 1001P and I'm using WICD to configure it. I can scan for wlans, but I can not connect. I installed the compat wireless package from yast and I downloaded the source from the compat wireless site and tried to compile it (which seems to be the solution for Ubuntu) but I got an error and an interesting warning
I have been searching through the forums and looked at this SDB:ASUS WL-160N USB Wireless Adapter - openSUSE and I am still having problems getting my ralink rt2870 wireless adapter working.
I compiled the driver from source and when I tried to use insmod it said rt2870sta.ko already exists. So I thought it should be working. I did an lsmod to see if it had started up and rt2870sta showed up as having been loaded, however so did rt2800usb rt2x00usb and rt2x00lib. I have tried starting up the computer with these blacklisted but that didn't help anything. As of now the rt2800usb seems to be controlling my wireless card. Using iwconfig the chip shows up as wlan0 instead of ra0 but iwlist scan appears to be working although my network isn't showing up. I have copied RT28670STA.dat to /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/RT2870STA.dat and configured it as well. Running lsusb the chip shows up as simply Linksys (it is a linksys adapter with ralink chipset).
After having scoured the internet and the forums for advice, I am still not able to connect via Wireless, which is being controlled by Network Manager.The following is info I obtained from running a script that I obtained reading these forums:
* Hostname: linux-8qpz.site * Run date and time: Sun Oct 24 10:12:58 EDT 2010 ---------------------------------------------------
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 recently purchased a wireless USB dongle. It works great. I am looking to connect multiple computers to that USB dongle. I wanted to know if anyone out there knows if it is possible to link multiple USB cables together like a reverse splitter.
This is a mutation of; Help, my wireless .... I read the stickies and hope to provide enough info. Because we had problems getting a Linksys device working (it worked, but after that it failed) on openSUSE 11.3, my friend (the system owner) bought a Eminent EM4554 Wifi 150N forgetting to ask me to look in the HCL. On looking through the Eminent web-site I discovered they have a Linux tarball for it, but I prefer to look for an openSUSE ready solution first. The tarball showed that it is about a Ralink RT2870 chipset.
lsusb: Code: Bus 002 Device 002: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp. I added the download.opensuse.org/repositories/driver:/wireless/openSUSE_11.3/ and the update of that repos. On starting YaST > Software > Software Management it offered several packages for installation that all seemed related to this subject and came from those repos, so I installed them. I did not install the ralink-firmware package because that warned that it would remove the kernel-firmware package.
I recently got a lenovo w510 laptop and I installed openSUSE 11.3 KDE on it. the wireless works fine at home (802.11g WPA2) when I go to work I have tried to set up the wifi for the 802.1X PEAP network but it doesn't look like it even tries to connect.
The work network set up is as follows. non-brodcasting SSID (do I need to tell network manager of this? I manually enter the SSID no problem)
Dynamic WEP 802.1X PEAP blank anonymous identity no CA cert (I suspect this might be the problem) PEAP v 1 MSCHAPv2
I have verified my username and pw several times, as well as the SSID. Just yesterday I helped a co-worker get on the network under ubuntu and it worked like a charm.
The Hardware profile displays the wifi card as a "WiFi Link 6000 Series" It is an intel card.
I moved to Berlin recently and I got wireless internet through an access point. I'm supposed to use the laptop's built-in wireless netcard to access the internet. This usually works in windows (connection falls out from time to time), but I have yet to make it work in linux. I'm using OpenSuse 11.3 64-bit and the Knetwork manager. Most of the settings in the network manager are correct, but it keeps wanting to use system certificates for the server. By that I mean it keeps checking 'Use CA System certificates'.
So I can't choose the CA-certificate supplied by my internet provider. I keep removing the check-mark and pointing it to the 'hotzoneCA.der' certificate. I also got a 'personal' certificate, in lack of a better word. Its called 'jacob_collstrup.p12'. The Knetwork manager seems to accept the 'jacob_collstrup.p12' certificate, but not the other one.
I just put the certificates in a folder like this /jacob/home/hotzone/zertifikate/ I can see the network fine using the Knetwork manager, and the signal strength seems ok. Not too good, but it shouldn't be a problem. I might have messed up the system, since I first tried this guide, prior to experimenting with Knetwork Manager:
1. (had to run this one as su) Code: wpa_supplicant -w -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dndiswrapper -dd ï¿½t 2. (This was supposed to be put in a wpa_supplicant.conf file) Code: ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant ctrl_interface_group=0 opensc_engine_path=/usr/lib/opensc/engine_opensc.so pkcs11_engine_path=/usr/lib/opensc/engine_pkcs11.so pkcs11_module_path=/usr/lib/pkcs11/opensc-pkcs11.so
So I decided to wipe out Windows and try Slitaz. It's an awesome well featured distro for it's size. One huge problem tho: I can't get wireless to work for the life of me. I actually went as far as to manually load the ath5k module but It just refuses to recognize my wireless router, much less any nearby routers. It simply doesn't see anything when it scans for wireless networks. I have no problem with that in Puppy Lucid. But I'd really like to use Slitaz, just for it's small size and quick bootup. Can anyone PLEASE help me with that?
PS: It happened here before that I had to plea and beg for any response, so PLEASE(!!) don't let me hang like that this time.
I am dual booting with windows xp on a dell computer I recently acquired. I am running Ubuntu 10.10. The computer didn't have a wireless connection so I installed a wireless pci adapter from a company called ZONET. I installed it perfectly on windows xp, however, I cannot install the driver and the "Ralink Wireless LAN" on Ubuntu. I inserted the cd, and opened the setup.exe file with Wine Windows Program Loader (I have installed Wine 1.3 by following the instructions on http://www.winehq.org/download/deb and clicking on the link that says "click here".
I am currently temporarily connected to the internet by borrowing my main computers ethernet cable). I followed the instructions on the InstallShield Wizard only to have two windows pop up saying there is an error (see attached image).
I have only had a few weeks worth of experience with linux, so I'm probably considered a newbie at this but I felt like giving it a shot. I just configured my new Toshiba Satellite A505-S6969 to jaunty. Most of the transition is going well but I'm stuck with a few issues, one of which is getting my wifi to work. Right now I'm working off of an ethernet cable.spci returns

I am appealing to the minds far greater than mine.. I have been using this forum with resounding success without having to post for some time, and I am more than impressed with what you can resolve by simply trawling through the archives, on this occasion however, I'm stumped.
I have a desktop upstairs in my home running 10.10, I have a Ralink Wirless LAN dongle RTL8188CUS with a mini CD with all the drivers etc. Now, when I physically install the dongle Ubuntu does not firstly even acknowledge it's existence, so, I unpack the CD Lynx dir and there seems to be no way to install it? I can't see a code to run in terminal to install.. nothing?
