OpenSUSE Wireless :: Card Keeps Disappearing Like Disabled In BIOS

Jul 24, 2010

I'm running SUSE 11.3 on a Dell Inspiron 1501 with a Broadcom BCM4311. I finally got the wireless working earlier with some help from caf4926 and now the card keeps disappearing almost like someone went into the BIOS and disabled it.

General :: Ubuntu Wireless Network Card Disabled

Dec 27, 2010

1. If you are on a laptop check that the network function key is turned on. Mine is on F12 and has a bluish light for ON and reddish light for OFF.

2. Go to System > Administration > Users and Groups > Advanced Settings > User Privileges Check you have relevant permissions for Connecting to Wireless Networks and the Internet. (Also turned my audio on here after much trial)

I discovered these after spending hours following up suggestions on these forums. They might not solve everyone's problems but they will hopefully save some of you from fruitless searching

OpenSUSE Install :: Wireless Connection Disappearing With Login

Jan 13, 2010

I installed openSuSE 11.2 onto an HP Pavillion dv5-1040 (openSuSE as only operating system), first from net and then from CD. Initial installation took place around 20 December, and is still going on (!). After much back and forth (installing Atheros 928x drivers etc etc), I was able to get the wireless network up and running (perfectly).

The PC was set up such that I would be logged directly in at boot. For security reasons, I wanted to have a login with username and password, and I was able to get that going (unfortunately). The side-effect was that I am no longer able to access the network! I have been extensively searching the net find a solution, but without success. I strongly suspect that the solution is to set one or more parameters in a script, but what parameters in what script?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Installation Wasn't Disappearing After Reboot?

Apr 16, 2010

So I have Suse 11.2 installed to dual boot on a Macbook Pro. Everything is finally working right after a lot of re-installs to get it too where the Suse installation wasn't disappearing after reboot, everything except for the wireless. Suse is seeing my connection and to my knowledge, I have all encryption and SSID entered correctly, but I cannot get a connection.

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom BCM4312 Dell Studio - Built In Wireless Card - 'disabled' And No Longer Works

Jun 10, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu x64 on my dell studio 1535 using the windows installer (wubi).

All seems to be working fine apart from the built in wireless card, the proprietary driver (found in hardware drivers) installs and activates successfully and works perfectly. Until I shut down or restart the system. On the next boot the wireless card is 'disabled' and no longer works.

The card I have is a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g

I am going to try a proper install on a second partition rather than using wubi later on but wondered if this was a commonly occuring problem?

The wireless card works as soon as the driver installs, however I am shown a "restart to activate driver" message and after restarting it's dead.

Fedora :: IRQ Conflicts - ECC Disabled In BIOS

Sep 3, 2010

When I moved from Fedora 13 from Fedora 11, I thought the annoying application crashes that I had been having were gone for good. Random crashes - firefox, Thunderbird, Abrt, metacity and what have you with SIGSEGV errors. I'm beginning to believe that these are not down to Fedora or even the RAM (Have run Memtest, several times). I'm not sure if what I am seeing are signs of IRQ conflicts of some sort. Can someone, please have a look and give me some guidance on what to do? Should I reinstall with acpi=off ? noapic? Also, don't have a clue why the system complains of ECC being disabled? The RAM is non-ECC. I have posted some sections of the logs here with links to the full logs instead of making this a massive post.

EDAC MC: Ver: 2.1.0 Aug 27 2010
EDAC amd64_edac: Ver: 3.3.0 Aug 27 2010
EDAC amd64: This node reports that Memory ECC is currently disabled, set F3x44[22] (0000:00:18.3).

Either enable ECC checking or force module loading by setting 'ecc_enable_override'.
(Note that use of the override may cause unknown side effects.)

Complete system spec, BIOS details etc.

Ubuntu Installation :: Disabled RAID In My BIOS

Sep 26, 2010

I've played with Ubuntu, and a linux evangelist at work has talked me into trying it again.I happened to be wiping my machine, so my plan was to have Windows 7 and Ubuntu on one hard drive (100GB for Ubuntu, the rest for Windows), and the second hard drive for downloads, TV, films, etc.First I installed Windows, then I torrented the x64 Ubuntu 10.04 live CD iso, and burned it to a DVD. I booted from it and installed on the second partition, but I then found when I booted back into windows that my second hard drive wasn't there any more.

It didnt take long to work out that Ubuntu had installed using the second hard drive as a mirror. This is very confusing to me, as I've disabled RAID in my BIOS. I booted from the Ubuntu CD again and looked for options about this but didn't find any. Eventually out of frustration I just unplugged the second hard drive, but now when I boot from the CD to install, no hard drives show up for me to install to.

Hardware :: All USB Ports Disabled - Cannot Open In BIOS

May 4, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed on an Asus x83v. About a month ago, my laptop began taking a very long time to boot up, assuming it booted at all. This happened out of the blue for no apparent reason. I found that boot up was faster when I unplugged all USB devices, though it was still a slow process. When I plugged devices back in, they did not work. My iPod was not recognized, nor was my USB mouse. This was extremely frustrating, but I figured it must be an issue with Ubuntu 9.10, and with 10.04 just around the corner, I figured I would upgrade and then see how things were. To make a long story short, it was all the same. With some research, I found that my USB ports were inexplicably disabled.

Here is the output of lsusb:
Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 04f2:b071 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd 2.0M UVC Webcam / CNF7129
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
This is with my USB mouse plugged in.

I went into BIOS and found that USB was enabled. However, on the rare occasion that my computer boots successfully with a USB device plugged in, I get a message like this from Ubuntu prior to reaching the login screen: "Unable to enumerate USB device, Port 002 disabled". I suspect I may need to reinstall my BIOS, however I am at a loss as to how to do so.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Why Are Devices Detected Even When Disabled In BIOS

Dec 5, 2010

I am having problems understanding how sound capable devices are being used on my Ubuntu10.10 64 bit system. I have an ASUS A8V motherboard with on-board multimedia functions provided through the VIA V8237 chip. BIOS gives me the option to disable this functionality and I have set BIOS this way. I want to use an M-Audio 24/96 card for all sound processing.

However, in applications like Audacity the VIA chip functions are all available and can be set as recording and playback devices. The same is true in ALSA.

Why does 'linux' (I have no idea which part of the OS) ignore the BIOS settings?

Furthermore alsamixer always selects the 'default' devices. Where and how are these set?

<System><Preferences><Sound> hardware tab list 2 'Internal Audio' devices but no M-Audio device. What are these devices? Only 1 of them appears to create any output with the 'Test Speakers' tab. This confuses me completely because the speakers are connected only to the M-Audio card.

None of the profiles for 'Settings for the selected device' match the capabilities of the M-Audio card (1 set of stereo inputs and 1 set of stereo outputs). So where are these profiles coming from? Which do I select for the M-Audio card?

What do the Input and Output tabs in <System><Preferences><Sound> mean? Are these different to the hardware tab? The 'Output' tab lists2 devices for sound output: 'Internal Audio Analog Stereo, Stereo' twice. What devices are these ?

OpenSUSE Network :: Wireless Disabled After Update?

Dec 18, 2010

Just bought new laptop i7 with broadcom wireless, intalled opensuse 11.3 x64. I had major trouble to make it work... Even compiled kernel 2.6.37-rc6, but didnt go.Then I took drivers and firmware from git repositories, compiled, did what it was necessary and I made it work.This morning, (since system was new), I just did zypper upgrade (nothing new installed from default installation, I just added packman to repos).And, now wireless is not working. In network manager, option "enable wireless" is disabled.I went to YaST, put network on ifup, it did scan networks, but cant make it work either. Turned it back to network manager, but same thing.Module brcm80211 is loaded, but I cannot make wireless work.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: BCM4312 Disabled WLAN On 11.3

Sep 12, 2010

I installed OpenSUSE 11.3 with disabled WLAN (otherwise the installation process didn't start). Now the system boots only in Safe Mode with enabled WLAN card (when the WLAN card is disabled it also boots in normal mode though). But even if I try to configure the WLAN card in Safe Mode, the system doesn't boot next time (in Safe Mode) until I add "brokenmodules=ssb" parameter. As I understand after reading this forum I should install a firmware/driver, but there is no install_bcm43xx_firmware script in /usr/sbin directory.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Network Management Disabled After Freeze?

Aug 18, 2010

I just switched to opensuse from fedora. So far, I like it a lot (KDE FTW). However, I am having a couple issues concerning hibernation and restarting.Whenever I merely close my computer but don't shut it off, I am forced to reboot. When I open the computer after closing it, everything stays black and nothing seems to work aside from a restart (no good, I know).When I restart, network management is disabled and thus I am prevented from accessing wireless. The only solution I have found is to hibernate, which for some reason fixes the problem. A restart however does nothing. So I guess I have two questions:1) Why can't I close my computer without turning it off?2) Is there a more permanent solution aside from merely hibernating after a crash that will fix network manager

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Painfully Slow Wireless Throughput On Atheros AR5001 Card

Aug 12, 2010

I have a Acer Revo R3610 nettop on which I installed oS11.3. It has an Atheros AR5001 wireless network adaptor.I'm getting very bad latency and throughput on with this card. In comparison my Thinkpad with Intel card achieves at least 10 times the throughput from the same location. Also when I boot my wifi will come up authenticate and then a few seconds later disconnect and reconnect. I've tried updating the kernel to 2.6.35 as one of the fixes was to improve the performance of the ath5k driver. I'm using wpa2 authentication.

Here are some details:


mediacentre:~ # /sbin/lspci -nnk
00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: nVidia Corporation MCP79 Host Bridge [10de:0a82] (rev b1)
Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI] Device [1025:0222]


Is there anything else I paste that will help determine the cause of the bad throughput. Browsing the web or copying files across the network is bordering unusable.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Card Dormant Until Wired Connection Detected?

Feb 2, 2011

I have searched and have not found anything specific to my issue. I am currently using NDISWrapper to load the bcmwl15 driver and when it's active it works beautifully.Problem is sometimes at boot, the card doesn't "turn on" and I don't know how else to describe it. The OS does not even detect that the hardware is present. I have disabled wireless hotkey in BIOS. The only way to make the wireless card "active" is to reboot with the wiredconnection to the router. After doing that the wireless card "wakes up" and works awesome.Is there anything I can do to make sure the driver load at boot?mes I get the error that NDISWrapper is not modprobbed when I go to network configuration and if I wish to do i now? I don't know if that has anything to do with the boot sequence. Using the <modprobe ndiswrapper> command as root does nothing permanant

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Device Is An Integrated Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card

Dec 25, 2009

My wireless device is an integrated Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card, I am unsure about the driver I have in use. I am sure I have a driver installed because the configuration screen shows my network. I currently have the computer plugged into my network via CAT 5 but I would like to be able to use the wireless (obviously.) I am using Open SuSE version 11.2 and I have run the updater. I could not see my wireless network before running the updater and I can now so I know that the updates have helped but I am again stuck. I have tried to search the wireless forum and I have tried to tinker with the settings in YaST , but nothing seems to be working. Reading the Welcome page of the wireless forum, I tried the Broadcom chip-set advice:


I have read and taken to heart the advice given for receiving help and if any more is needed I will gladly give it. I have a small amount of experience with SuSE Enterprise edition so I can understand some technical stuff but I am best at following specific instructions.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Intel 3945abg Wireless Network Card Cannot Connect To Router Automatically

I clicked "Network Settings", and I found that the ip address was wrong, which is "", and netmask field is empty, so I modifed the configuration file located in /etc/sysconfig/network, named ifcfg-wlan0, added one line(NETMASK= ''), 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.

Ubuntu :: Disappearing Wireless Local Network

When I was running Ubuntu hardy my local network would stay up for as long as I kept the desktop machine running.

After the reboot the network works fine until it does not.
