I found a few fixes which I tried to use, to no sucess. updating drivers, turning router on/off, turning wireless switch on/off, various other fixes from ubuntuforums. tried to upgrade to Natty Narwhale to see if the problem worked it's way out, to no avail. I've spent two days trying for this. Anyone out there willing to point me in the right direction or hold my hand?
I am currently running openSUSE 11.4 on my Toshiba A505 laptop. I'm not certain about the exact model number of the wireless adapter but I believe it's made by Realtek. It does not show up in my list of network connections in YaST so I assume I'll need a driver for it.
Out of all the Linux I have tried, this is the only one which will hibernate and startup again properly. But it has no drivers for the rtl2860 wifi adapter. I am thinking of using NDIS wrapper, but it may stop hibernation working. I see a guide which I am going to try to follow, but has anyone out there got this adapter working and hibernation still works?
I've recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 and everything has been working great, except I cannot see ANY wireless networks, Wired works fine, and while on Windows 7 I can connect fine.lspci -v gives me a wall of text, the end is:
03:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8192E Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01) Subsystem: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 8152 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 17 I/O ports at 2000 [size=256]
To become familiar with unix I decided to install a partition of openSUSE. I'm currently running 11.4 and how to get my wireless card working. I know that I have an RTL8188CE. I downloaded the realtek drivers from Realtek However, when I try to execute the make command I get the following error:
make: *** /lib/modules/188.8.131.52-0.5-default/build: No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [all] Error 2
I've made sure that I've installed the packages in both the base development and the C, C++ packages. I looked under the base development package and know for sure that i have make installed. I'm not really what i'm missing
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my samsung n150. It has the 8192 device in it. Have installed ndiswrapper, however cannot get the drivers for it. How to fix/where to get the driver from so I can get my wireless card working again.

I think the driver may be there, however I just can't 'enable' it. On my laptop there is a blue light saying that wifi is enabled however who knows.
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0bda:8171 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188SU 802.11n WLAN Adapter this adapter shows up in network manager when connected to computer but doesn't detect network and cant connect to any network I have setup in nm, the adapter works fine in windows and it's supposed to work in linux or do I have to install drivers?
So I bought a new wireless pci-e adapter today that has a realtek 8192CE chipset. I checked before I bought it and it is supported in the kernel since 2.6.38. Just to be safe I used the kernel-huge-2.6.39-rc4 config file from testing just to get it to work. All the kernel modules are loaded correctly and it is recognized by iwconfig, however wicd acts as if there is no wireless card in the system. I checked dmesg and saw this error. rtl8192cu:loading firmware file rtlwifi/rtl8192cfw.bin rtl8192cu:firmware loading failed
So I googled around and didn't find much except for somethings about needing firmware. I did make firmware_install but for some reason there is no rtlwifi/rtl8192cfw.bin file. As a test I found an RPM that had the bin file I needed. I converted it to a tgz and ran explodepkg on it to extract the one file I needed. I made a directory /lib/firmware/rtlwifi and dropped the .bin file in and wicd immediately found my networks. So I guess it is a missing firmware issue, however I am currently not able to obtain and ip address. Why did the kernel not build the firmware I need, or is that something I have to download and build separately?
Just made the jump to Ubuntu, and until this install I considered myself very tech savvy. Now not so much! Built my new desktop, loaded Ubuntu 64 bit no problem. But I'm having a terrible time figuring out how to load the native driver for my realtek wireless adapter. I successfully un-tarred the file, and used the terminal to run the make command by using cd command to navigate to the file. It returned a wall of text, and in my mind looked to work. Next I go to run "./clean" in the same file location in the terminal and it returns:
"ERROR: Module r8192s_usb does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_rsl does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_ccmp does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_tkip does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_wep does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt does not exist in /proc/modules
Not completely sure if this is an issue, I try moving to the next step of instructions issuing the command "insmod 8712u.ko" in the terminal same file location and get the error message insmod: error inserting '8712u.ko': -1 Operation not permitted I've tried running "sudo insmod 8712u.ko" from both that file directory, and from my home file directory. My guess is I'm missing a step or need to be typing these commands in a different file directory in the terminal.
I'm trying to install a Linksys WUSB600n dual-band USB wireless-N adapter onto a desktop system with opensuse 11.1 installed; this system will be migrating to a back porch with no cabling access, hence the wireless solution. Everything works fine under Windows XP, but on Linux, not so much. Hardware info is as follows; there is no "Wireless LAN" entry, but there is a USB entry:
I am having issues with wifi on my Lenovo X220. What has occurred is that the network applet in the notification bar no longer shows me any wireless network options. When I click on the applet, the drop down shows me: Wired network: disconnected (greyed out), VPN connections, Enable networking (checked), Connection information (greyed out), and Edit connections. Missing is Wireless connections. This occurred "out of the blue" in the middle of using the computer (i.e. NOT just after a reboot or new driver installation, etc.)
I have noted that:
1. Wired ethernet works just fine.
2. Wireless (wifi) works when I boot into Windows 7 or into a fresh Ubuntu USB Start up disk (implying that this is a software issue, not hardware).
3. The hardware led for wifi is OFF (whereas the Bluetooth light is on.) In Windows or using a fresh ubuntu from USB, this light turns on normally.
This may be irrelevant, but the issue started yesterday when I noticed that the trackpoint scrolling that I had enabled using gpointing-device-settings was not working. I ran that app and checked the settings, which were normal. I then reset the computer, and found the trackpoint was working just fine, but I had no wifi. A few resets later, the problem was not solved.
I have used google and read a few topics here at this forum. ( especially this Getting Your Wireless to Work was very interesting for me ) But it is useless for me, because I am newborn in GNU/Linux. I use openSUSE 11.3 with KDE. I have read, that you need some informations about my hw. I hope these are
Above adapter can be installed on v10.2 and 11.3 using ndiswrapper:-
1. Copy the 3 driver files from Windows:- like netwpn111.inf, WPN111.sys & ar5523.bin. (Be carfeul about the exact names, because they have changed over time).
2. sudo ndiswrapper -i netwpn111.inf
3. sudo ndiswrapper -m
4. sudo modprobe ndiswrapper (the adapter should light up at this point and networks will be detected shortly after - see network manager). (Be careful of paths here - e.g. I had to use /sbin/modprobe - so 'whereis' may be necessary to find these commands).
2nd When I reboot, I need to run the modprobe command again. How do I make the module load automatically on boot? Also (and this is minor), can I bypass the KWallet, keyring thing? it seems silly to enter a password for the keyring and then click another password dialog, when I can just as easily enter the password for the network itself.
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 an HP Pavilion G6. I recently installed openSUSE after having no luck with another linux distribution. I was told openSUSE is more compatible with laptops, so I figured I'd give it a try. I am now facing the same problem I had been facing w/ the other distribution (Ubuntu). My Network Adapter doesn't seem to be recognized by any linux operating systems. It is a Ralink 802.11b/g/n WiFi adapter. When I open the "network" tab, my home wifi is not listed, nor are any around me. In fact, I can't even open the "wireless" tab.
I've installed any recent drivers for my adapter, and I went to extensive lengths to try to solve the issue on my previous linux distribution. I don't know what output to give you from the terminal, nor do I really know any commands to look for anything. On a side note, I had been messing with my touchpad application, trying to set my preferences. I check the boxes for horiz. and vertic. scrolling with two fingers, and apply. They don't work. I check the boxes for using two finger tap to do something, and three finger tap to do something else.
I started yesterday off wanting to install this USB wifi adapter on my PC (which is mini-itx so has additional pci slots) [URL] it has the Ralink 3070 chipset. I tried everything I found when googling, nothing came close to working, this was in Fedora12. So I gave up and installed Ununtu 10.04, hoping for better luck there. Ubuntu will recognise the presence of a wifi adapter, here's the output from iwconfig
But it sees no wifi networks and generally won't do anything; I don't think it has the right driver. Rosewill does list a (linux) driver and so does Ralink, but again, neither of these come close to working. has anyone gotten this adapter or chipset to work in ubuntu?
I am super new to linux. I have tried a lot of distros but went with OpenSUSE11.3. I have both gnome and kde live cd. Now to the problem, When I put in the live cd and boot - the computer finds the wireless card and lets me connect to the internet. This works on both versions. But after clicking on the install icon the wireless no longer starts and then I cant get it to work. Maybe its something I should be doing. After all I am new to this.
