OpenSUSE Wireless :: RTL819SU Not Working With Ifup (needs Ifup-dhcp First)
Sep 29, 2010
After spending quite some time on this, I have narrowed it down to:
Adapter works OK with NetworkManager
Adapter works OK with ifup if I run iwconfig after ifup has finished
It eppears to be linked to another thread Probl me de r seau wifi / Network manager in that dhcp needs to be running. (So it may be a 'feature' of RTL819 adaptors) So I've finally worked out that I need to start dhcp first.
NetworkManager? I have OpenSUSE 11.3 and broadcom wifi module. By default network are managed by NetworkManager. Wifi works great on opened access points. But when i tried to connect to WEP access point my hexadecimal key rejected. When i used ifup instead of NetworkManager the same key has been accepted. But i won't use ifup.
I have just installed 11.4 KDE (having used 11.3 for a while). I was able to use YAST in 11.3 to switch from network manager, to using 'traditional', to connect to wireless network without problems. Since installing (fresh install) 11.4, only network manager seems to work without issue;
using traditional never sets up the wireless connection - or should i say appears not to as no apps will connect (as they do fine using the network manager connection). using 'ifstatus wlan0', seems to suggest there is no configuration file when using the 'traditional' gui. Has any one had similar problems
I just installed OpenSuSE 11.3 on an old IBM T20 I had kicking around and I'm using a Proxim Wireless PCMCIA Card (Atheros AR5001X). Since this laptop does not have a DVD drive I installed the system using the Netboot CD and have the SuSE 11.3 ISO on an NFS/SAMBA file server. The issues appeared after the first reboot, the adapter no longer worked. I resorted to using the wired interface to finish the install.
Once the system was up followed the trouble shooting steps outlined in various places and found the ESSID is not being picked up by the ifup scripts. Not sure if it matters but I have ESSID broadcasts turned off on all my WAPs.
The ESSID is in ifcfg-wlan0. To get wireless working I have to manually issue iwconfig wlan0 essid "xxxx"..
I have searched around a bit for a knetwork manager issue I am having on my opensuse 11.2 32 bit install. My wireless card is an 04:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01) I am currently using the Broadcom wl driver
I am on the Internet with this machine as I am typing using the older "ifup" method. I am having great difficulty connecting to the Internet when I use knetwork manger though. The strange part is when I am connected to my router with knetwork manager, I can log into my Router, but I can not get to any web-page/ping any outside address.
so far the best (I was able to locate) advice I was able to get is located in this post. < Broadcom wireless, partchy internet - openSUSE Forums > following a posted how to to disable IPV6 (I suspect this may be the issue??), I was unable to locate modprobe.conf, or modprobe.conf.local, even after I updated via updatdb. I gave a shot at entering in "disable_ipv6=1" into "menu.lst". However, this did not solve my issue with knetwork manager. If my network information is needed when I am "connected" utilizing knetwork manager
I am running my wifi using YAST and IFUP. The card is a zd1211, and works just fine. However lately I have have to "start" it manually after booting. The only way I have found to do this is to open YAST >network settings> and "edit" the card, but NOT change anything, just click through the next buttons and it connects. I have tried using the settings "on boot" and "on hotpug" but always when I reboot, I have to go through the YAST rigmarole. This is a PITA. I am trying to avoid NM as I want to sort this out, not cover it up with more software.
I have the above mentioned USB Wifi Dongle Bus 002 Device 003: ID 148f:3072 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT3072 Wireless Adapter It works extremely well using the KDE network manager but just will not connect using ifup traditional method through yast.
Initially it was using the RT2870 driver but this only gave wirelessg speeds (and still no ifup) but after blacklisting RT2780 and using RT5370sta driver draftn speed was achieved using KDE network manager however I still could not connect through ifup. The dongle scans and sees networks using ifup but will just not connect properly (NB security WPA2-AES).
I've had 11.4/KDE working pretty well on dual boot Asus G73SW for a few weeks now. Only issues were the FN-* functions that control keyboard lights and whatnot but no biggie since the essential worked.The last couple of days the update notification was indicating 1,201 updates to be made. Yeah it seemed extreme but I googled around and checked the forums and there was nothing related. I figured I might be missing some packages since I installed from the live KDE CD (still 1202 updates!!!???). So I updated. Big mistake!!!!! Ever since NetworkManager cannot connect to the internet, be it wired or wireless.
Initially it could not even see my home network but it picked it up after I removed the plasmoid from the panel and reinstalled it. However it doesn't respond when I click the network icon and still no connection.I managed to get eth0 working with ifup but not wifi. The last part of network manager log file is quoted below. I can send the whole thing to whoever is interested. I can't make sense of it but maybe someone on the forums can.
So I thought I was getting the hang of networking stuff, but, apparently not. Anyhoo, I have a startup script (very basic one liner)ifup -a Reading the man page for ifup it says this should bring up all devices listed in interfaces file (so contained in there I have):After starting my machine I run ifconfig which returns no output.If I do ifup eth0 I get: ifup: interface eth0 already configured.So finally, if I run dhcpcd this brings up my nic. If I then do ifdown -a and kill the dhcpcd process and then manually type ifup -a, it all magically comes back.Would someone explain what step I am missing in the process to have all my cards startup as part of the boot process?
In Network Settings in OpenSuse 11.1 while using "Traditional Method with ifup" I am able to set up a box as a server and connect via http over the net BUT Firefox cannot browse. If I switch to "User Controlled with NetworkManager" I can run Firefox but my server is not contactable. How do I do both?
How do you mannually set up a network using Yast/ifup? I'm trying to get my wireless running on a Broadcom 1390 WLAN. I've gone through the stickies in the wireless forum (this is my first stab at Linux) and have gotten the drivers installed and the internet working (albeit intermittently) using Knetwork manager. It seems that some folks that have had the same issue did not have problems setting the network up manually with Yast & ifup. I've disabled network manager in Yast, and I went through man ifup. It seems I need a "pre-configured interface," but I don't know how to make that happen.
I having a problem with my network. I'm trying to assign an IP alias of eth0:1 to eth0. If I use ifup eth0:1 is fails and corrupts the network. Making the network useless. But if I just enter 'ifconfig eth0:1 10.1.1.51', it work fine? My scripts look like these:
I have my ubuntu box hard wired into my network. It all works fine, until I reboot my ubuntu box. After reboot, it can no longer see the network. I have it set up with a static ip. Not sure that I set it up completely correctly but it works fine...when working.. To fix the problem, I enter terminal: ifup eth0 That fixes all know problems until next reboot. What do I need to do so that it will remember settings and automatically be hooked into the network at power up?
I have a pppoe adsl connection. When I disconnect and try to reconnect, network-manager keeps asking for my password. I type it again and again with no success. When I reboot, it works again. On ubuntu, I use pppoeconf and it works well. So on Fedora I made a connection with pppoe-setup but neither ifup nor Code:
pppoe-connect commands work. When I type Code: pppoe-connect , it says Code: /usr/sbin/adsl-start: line 217: 13409 Terminated $CONNECT "$@" > /dev/null 2>&1 . When I type
Ifup ppp0 doesn't work either. However, with exactly the same settings, ubuntu connects to the internet.
I am in the process of settign up a home server under FC14. The installation recognized both NICs, one as Intel Gigabit and the other as a Realtek Semiconductor as it should be. But when trying to start eth0 (Realtek) I get the following error message:
[root@theraugafamily network-scripts]# ifup eth0 Active connection state: activating Active connection path: /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/1 ** (process:2296): WARNING **: _nm_object_get_property: Error getting 'State' for /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/1: (19) Method "Get" with signature "ss" on interface "org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties" doesn't exist
state: unknown Error: Connection activation failed. Some more ifo the this NIC as it is of special type.It is a Viking PCI ADSL2+ Modem Card. I am quoting form the description "Being a gully integrated card, no external plug packs are required and cabling is simplified to just an ADSL line connection. The need to purchase an extra ethernet card is also eliminated, as yjis features is build into the card. The onboard Ethernet controller (RTL8139) makes the modem appear to the OS as a standard network card. Thus the Viking can be used with almost any modern O/S without the need for special drivers. This includes Windows, Linux, Solaris, xBSD, etc.." setting ACPI=off in GRUB.conf does not fix the issue
the PC just hangs for ever. No mouse movement, ctrl-alt-del, nothing.
I have downloaded a Linux driver from Realtek but it will not compile. I have the latest kernel-devel, headers, and gcc. I can post compiler errors if anybody would like. They're all apparently to do with missing parameters.
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 am having a problem while connecting to a D-Link Access Point with Multiple ESSID. It keeps saying activating but in the end nothing. I am using KnetworkManager & there is no Encryption on the Access Point.I am able to get connected with another machine using windows.Here is my hardware info:

first: PXE flawless bind to dhcp address but put next binding state to free second: when installer calls init script to reinit ethernet driver (e1000 (vmware)) binding fails 11.2 opensuse fail to reinit dhcp with log entry "no free leases" third: when manual set network install works how to preserve dhcp lease on reinit of driver?
I am puzzled with trying to configure a linux (openSUSE) client to dhcp to eBox DHCP server. I am using dhclient to lease an IP address with dhclient eth0 -s 10.45.48.108 and get a response
openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 10.45.48.108 port 67 interval 4 openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPOFFER from 10.45.48.108 openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: DHCPREQUEST on eth0 to 10.45.48.108 port 67 openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: send_packet: Network is unreachable openSUSE11232CL1 dhclient: send_packet: please consult README file regarding broadcast address.
The server reports eBox141 dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:0c:29:3e:57:a3 (openSUSE11232CL1.domain.net) via eth0 eBox141 dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 10.45.200.2 to 00:0c:29:3e:57:a3 (openSUSE11232CL1.domain.net) via eth0
I interpret this as the server receives the request and the client accepting it but the lease does not last long and the connection breaks. what this could be and why the connection breaks? Or my undestanding is totally wrong on how it works and should work? And BTW, where is that README file that's referenced in the message I receive on the client?
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.
My openSUSE's working unstable and very slowly! Wireless is starting very late.It appears 10min later after i loggen in,and wants me to enter wireless password.This windows is showing up so late,and I can't connect internet before it shows up.
I have just installed openSuse 11.4 KDE 64-bit on a Dell M1330. When I click on my networking panel, it says WLAN interface is unavailable. I've followed the steps in the stickied post and found the WLAN hardware info, a screenshot of which is below:Uploaded with ImageShack.usNext it says to do this - you need to look at the logs, in particular the info in /var/log/boot.msg. To see this, you need YaST => Miscellaneous => System Logs and select boot.msg.In YaST there is no such option for system logs under miscellaneous, so I can't do that. The results of the sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan command produce the following:
root's password: lo Interface doesn't support scanning. eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.
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:
04:00.0 Network controller : Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 5300 AGN [Shiloh] Network Connection [8086:4235] Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device [8086:1121] Kernel driver in use: iwlagn In terms of installed apps:
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.
