OpenSUSE Wireless :: Intel 4965 Doesn't Work On OpenSuse 11.2
May 6, 2010
I upgraded to OpenSuse 11.2 and just about the only thing that doesn't work is my wireless internet. From my research, I should be using the iwl4965 or iwlwifi driver; however my system seems to be running iwlagn. I have no idea how to switch it as neither of the correct drivers can be found in my yast, and I've failed to find any information about this on the Intel® Wireless WiFi Link drivers for Linux* website.
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.
10:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection (rev 61) Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 1000 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 29 Memory at e4000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
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.
After wading through all of the bug reports filed regarding the Intel 4965 AG wireless adapter, trying various suggestions and not finding any solutions to my problem, I've finally decided to scrap the idea of actually being able to get my Toshiba laptop to connect reliably to my wireless network with Ubuntu 9.10. This wireless adapter worked absolutely flawlessly with 8.04 Hardy. I took the plunge once again this week and thought I'd try again to get 9.10 working on my laptop but it's a no go with the Intel wireless adapter (same problem with 9.04, it just doesn't work). You would think with newer versions of drivers and kernels that the same hardware that worked in a previous version, would continue working with newer versions.
Anyway, enough of my frustrated ranting... I need to find a replacement wireless adapter for my laptop that WORKS FLAWLESSLY with 9.10. When I say flawlessly, I mean you plug it in, boot up the laptop and it works all the time, every time. No fooling around with drivers etc... Either a PCMCIA or a USB wireless adapter that is currently available for purchase. I've waded through the sticky on the forum about which adapters are supposed to work, but I'm really hoping that someone here is using either a PCMCIA card or USB card and could please point me in the right direction. It's kind of funny, I purchase my Toshiba laptop because I read reviews here in the forum about how great it worked with Ubuntu 8.04. How all the hardware was recognized and worked out of the box. It did... with 8.04. Everything still works with 9.10 except the wireless.
what is really a rant disguised as a question, but does anyone have this combination working? My NetGear router shows the connection as allowed from the MAC address in the router logs, And I can see the network I want to join in the list of visible networks from the laptop, but dmesg shows Ubuntu disconnecting with
WPA-PSK [TKIP] only: wlan0: disassociating by local choice (reason=15) WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] wlan0: disassociating by local choice (reason=3)
I'm sure there is a simple explantion that has been sufficiently buried somewhere but after several hours of googling and searching the forums here I can't find it. Anyone want to help out an old man RTFM?
I'm getting really disappointed here lately - things are getting worse, not better. In my case in particular I have this laptop with supposedly open and supported drivers and they don't work, however, the exact same distributuon on a Dell D830 with a broadcom NIC does. under 8.10 and 9.04 this worked out the box - just logged in, gave the PSK and away we went. I can't see the attachment I just uploaded so to include the information requested in the "how to get help" post, I'll put it all here inline...

I have been getting from my wireless adapter. This has been going on for quite some time but only now am I able to see a pattern. The behavior seems to be the following: Start up, connects to network and work fine until I suspend my machine. On wake up, it works again but after a seemingly random amount of time the connection is lost and I can no longer find any networks. Attached is dmesg output after startup and connecting to a wireless network (dmesgAfterConecting.txt) and the same after the connection has been lost (dmesgAfterConnectLost.txt). I get this error which seems important:
Installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my Sony UX280p with Intel 4965 wireless. Ubuntu detects the card without issues (as far as I can tell). I can see all access points in my area and select my access point and pair with it. I get a DHCP address from the AP (if ifconfig is to be believed) and iwconfig shows the ESSID of my AP but I can't ping the AP or any other computer on the network, nor can I ping the sony from any other computer on my network. Last year I had installed 9.04 on this computer and wifi worked out of the box without any issues.
I am new to Ubuntu and I have problem with wireless connection. I could not find any wireless connection at all. I am now using wired connection. Sony Vaio SZ series, Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN My software details are:
$ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions.
A few months back, my Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 stopped connecting to my wireless network after coming out of Suspend (it had worked fine previously). Wireless networking is simply disabled, and I have to reboot in order to get it back. I tried upgrading my OS from Intrepid all the way to Lucid, but the problem persisted. I also tried changing my 00sleep_module as suggested in this thread, but to no avail.
My wireless worked out of the box for the past few months. When I was running low on battery recently, I put the laptop to sleep. When I woke it up, there was a black screen with a flashing underscore. I pressed a bunch of buttons but nothing happened. Then suddenly it said something about a wireless hardware error and I did a hard reset by holding down the power button. When I turned the computer back on, wireless was greyed out. There's no hardware switch to enable and disable wireless and the software switch had no effect. I tried echoing into the 'state' of the adapter but it didn't let me. When I tried sudo ifconfig wlan0 up it gave me the following error:
i have an Acer aspire 4920 laptop with opensuse11.3 installed and wifi card has identified home wifi, but for some reason when i enter the wpa-psk key it doesnt connect.i have been at this problem for several days and scanning the net for answers, without joy.i dont know about the command or terminal line, i have tried to type in commands but i get no joy.
Sorry for repeating the same old complaint but there doesn't seem to be a common fix: Wireless does not work on my Presario R3000 although SUSE 11.x lists the hardware in the Hardware Information list and the hardware is turned on. Network Manager doesn't display any wireless networks in SUSE while Win 7 can see 4 of them on the same machine. Ubuntu has no problem either
I installed opensuse 11.3 succesfully on my acer aspire 5670 (5672) laptop. Everything works except wireless connection. Looking for a solution is follewed the " My wireless doesn't work - a primer on what I should do next" guide on this forum. These are the results i become: (2) Determine what device you have.: 03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)
My intel pro wireless 2200 NIC doesn't work anymore. Yesterday it did, but not today (I didn't do anything special, so that it could go wrong).What is ucode and -62? Any ideas? I already checked the forums and found that ipw doesn't work when ndiswrapper is loaded. Well, I don't have it loaded. What happend?
I installed openSUSE 11.3 under 2 machines, one of them using a Linksys USB wireless N adapter (rt73usb) and another using an Atheros AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter (ath5k). I have a Belkin f5D8236-4 router, with the SSID "linksys". I also have an Ubuntu 10.04 machine which has working wireless internet. I know almost nothing about networking, but from what I can tell, openSUSE 11.3 seems to have trouble with DHCP, specifically setting the dynamic IP address. To try to go about fixing this, I attempted to set a static IP, but I am quite confused by all the settings.
I have tried both the graphical "Network Manager" (KDE, Gnome, and command line versions) and ifup, both with no luck.
Here is the information from the working Ubuntu machine code...
Last week used lxde11.3 and no problem connecting. Today I switched to xfce11.3 and the wifi card is registering fine as connected but it doesn't send the key out apparently to register the connection to the modem so it is fully activated.
I think lxde had a network manager but in xfce here I'm using Yast. What mismatch do I have here ? How do I start a network manager so the key will connect ?
(Beginner)Just installed openSUZE 11.1 Dual boot with Vista. I can set up my wireless settings, wep, etc and it says it connects just fine. But when I try to USE the internet it doesn't work. Nothing in update, nothing in firefox. It says it is connected but it's acting like something is blocking it.
I was hoping that 11.3 would sort this ongoing problem out for me. It works, it doesn't work so on and so forth! Following the "My wireless doesn't work - a primer on what I should do next page" the first few cmnd line entries were irrelevant. However, here are the results (edited) of the dmesg file.
1.376898] usb 2-2: New USB device found, idVendor=7392, idProduct=7717 [ 1.376900] usb 2-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 1.376902] usb 2-2: Product: 802.11 n WLAN [ 1.376903] usb 2-2: Manufacturer: Ralink [ 1.376904] usb 2-2: SerialNumber: 1.0
I have an intel 5300 wireless chipset which is not supported in kernel 2.6.25. I am currently using opensuse 11.0, I downgraded from 11.1 since I faced so many other problems. can I setup my wireless driver under kernel 2.6.25? if so, how could i do this?
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.
Wireless worked fine on live cd, but for some reason not after install. I think maybe the driver is not loading, but I am a pretty much still a noob, so my opinion isn't worth much. If it is the driver not loading, I don't know what to do to fix it. Here is my wireless output information.

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 just started with Slackware and I have a problem with my wifi. I don't know if I should make more changes to any archive but when I try to start my wifi it doesn't work at all. What I should do? take into consideration that I come from Ubunut, where everything is done beforehand.
No wireless networking. The ethernet works fine, and the wireless interface itself works well in Windows 7 (dual boot). Tried: Ndiswrapper, notoriously quirky, does not seem to work with the XP driver (the oldest driver available for the RTL8191SE). The linux driver offered on the manufacturer's website lacks any installation instructions. I have no clue how to install a linux driver. SUSE seems to have two network managers that are constantly complaining about control: Network Manager and Yast. Neither are great and I am left missing my Ubuntu.
However, my audio only seems to work on SUSE. I have tried almost every distro on this machine. Ubuntu lacked sound and wireless, Fedora played startup sounds, but would not play an mp3 or wav file (fiddling with the mixer did not help). And Fedora also lacked wireless support. PCLinuxOS, my favorite, lacked sound and wireless. Tried some oldies too. ELE, DSL, Puppy, Ubuntu Netbook remix, Vector, Browserpuppy, Crunchbang, Cruncheee (just for experimental sakes) and probably others I am not remembering. So far, installing a free linux distro has cost me 14 dvd-R's and countless hours of installing, reformatting and reinstalling. Part of me really wanted crunchbang to work, as I love the minimalism and blacked-out theme.
I need wireless network access. The wireless light remains red in Linux and pressing the key does nothing to start the device. In Windows 7 it always lights white and works perfectly. Why hasn't SUSE adopted a gui for ndiswrapper? Other distros have it. Why is my brand new laptop, which is by no means abnormal in make or configuration, not 100% supported natively by any Linux distro? I just updated to the new kernel yesterday. So I should be running the most modern operating system available. Yet good-ol Windows 7 is my only fully functional environment.
