OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Will Not Detect Networks
Feb 22, 2010
I've read through the stickied thread about troubleshooting my wireless and I've made it to step IV 'Making a connection.'I installed the firmware that my BCM4306 required, then tried 'sudo usr/sbin/iwlist scan'
I installed fedora 12 for the first time last night, and I have been having a lot of trouble with my wireless. It is a Dell 1395 WLAN mini. I followed the instructions from [UR], but I still can't see any networks. Moreover, when I boot into windows I can no longer detect any wireless networks.
I am running Ubuntu 9.10 on an ASUS eeepc 1000HE, and my wireless card, RaLink RT 2860, is failing to recognize any wireless networks. It was working fine this morning, until I accidentally hit Fn F2, disabling the wireless card. I hit Fn F2 again to reenable it, but it no longer will detect any wireless networks (and other computers in the household do recognize them). I googled quite a bit and talked to a human about this but could not fix it. We tried dhclient ra0, which returned

I have just downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop version and browsed the trial version without installing it onto my laptop. OK, I love it. I have decided to get rid of Windows 7 and install Ubuntu as the sole OS. However, I have got three questions before I do it.
1) Ubuntu couldn't detect any wireless networks. Was that because I run only the trial version? I am really concerned about it as I am a frequent Internet visitor. 2) Ubuntu preloaded movie and audio players couldn't play anything from my external HD. I got warning that plugin MPEG-2 System Stream demuxer was missing and couldn't be found (as I couldn't access Internet, I guess). I suppose I will be able to download the missing plugins. This leads to question 3) Once I download the necessary missing plugins, what am I supposed to do with them? How to install them?
I have a WLAN Driver Azure Wave AW-NU222 Wireless LAN Card in my Medion computer.
After installing Ubuntu it seems to detect the wireless networks in my area. However, when I try to connect to my network, it tries for several minutes and then times out with no error message. I have set up the credentials and also tried removing the encryption (WPA-PSK) from the network itself, but it still doesn't connect.
Connect via an Ethernet cable is fine, and I know that the network is good because I can connect via my Windows Laptop and various other wireless devices.
I suspect it's due to drivers, but I'm having trouble downloading a driver which I can try and install using Ndiswrapper. The Medion website just a windows executable when I try and download the driver specific to my machine when I really need the .inf file.
I just downloaded and installed ubuntu netbook 10.4 on my samsung n130 netbook...love it, except for one little thing: it won't detect any wireless networks. this is how i connect to the internet at home so using an ethernet cable is not an option.i tried putting in "ifconfig wlan0 up" in the terminal, but all it gives me is "permission denied".
Right so I just bought an Acer TimelineX with a Broadcom BCM43225 BCM43225 802.11b/g/n WiFi card. With this card I am not able to detect any wireless networks and after googling around I found out other people have had similar issues. But my problem is kind of unique in the sense that I'm using Backtrack as my Linux distribution (I'm not a blackhat or anything, more of an enthusiast with no malicious intentions) Also I'm not a God at Linux so if you have any solutions please be verbose! I tried the following: [URL] But the Makefile spits out a syntax error. (Makefile:29: *** missing separator. Stop.)
I have a wireless network at home. My home laptop connects without any issue.I have a wireless network at work. My work laptop connects without any issue.If I take my work laptop home, it can see the network but cannot connect to it. I've checked the passphrase and that's fine, I've deleted the network from the Network Manager profile and re-created it - no luck.
The only thing I can think of is that I had to change the wireless router network channel at one point. I think that the work PC could access the network before that (but it was a while ago). I've tried changing the channel back, but to no avail. I have to keep the channel at its new setting anyway to avoid a loss of signal.What sort of things should I be checking/changing to get home connectivity on my work PC? The wired network is fine, but my wife draws the line at me looming over her desk with a red cable plugged into the back of my laptop.
I have configured a wireless pcmcia card using ndiswrapper. I'm sure that works, as with the command "iwlist wlan0 scan" gives me back the list of detected wireless networks. At this point I was wondering: is there a way to detect the new interface (wlan0) with network manager? Even after enabling the wifi card the network manager gnome applet always finds only eth0.
I've been running Karmic since it was officially released on my Dell Studio 17 (specs are in my signature) with a Broadcom wireless half mini wireless card.hen I installed Karmic, it gave me the option to install proprietary drivers for my video card as well as 2 Broadcom drivers, STA and one of the BC43 drivers. I installed all of these, and the only problems I had were with the audio. I spent a few days troubleshooting the audio and finally got PulseAudio set up for my card.
Almost 3 months later, I was making use of my wireless network at home, as I had done plenty of times over the previous 3 months, when I closed the lid (thus putting the computer into sleep mode) and took it to the hospital to stay with my fianc饠after her surgery. When I got to the hospital, I couldn't get their network to show up. Network Manager didn't even recognize the network. We had also brought my fianc饧s laptop (same machine with a slightly less powerful CPU and only 4 GB of RAM). She is running Windows 7, which detected the hospital's network with no problems.After trying to ad-hoc the hospital network with no success, I finally just gave up and played Sudoku and toyed with some graphics stuff in GIMP until we came home. Upon returning home, however, I was shocked that my card didn't even detect our home network.
I have been unsuccessful for the past 3 days in getting Network Manager to identify our wireless network. The wired network connects without issue and I am able to make use of a USB Belkin adapter, which identifies all 7 of the various wireless networks in my neighborhood, including our home network.While I would be able to simply carry my Belkin adapter with me in order to make use of wireless networks, I would really like to solve this problem with my Broadcom adapter. I've gone through the Ubuntu Wireless Network Troubleshooting guide, but I still can't get it to workOutput of lshw -C network:
For some reason, ubuntu cannot find local wireless networks. In fact, the Broadcom wireless card Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g/n seems to be incompatible with ubuntu. I've tried numerous 'solutions' on the Internet, but none of them seem to work on my computer. Tutorials I've visited have recommended downloading the b43 drivers from the Synaptic package manager and also the bcmwl-kernal-source package. Nevertheless, the wireless never turns on and Additional Drivers never shows anything at all. After several exasperating hours of trying to get my wireless running I've decided to turn to the forum for help. I'm sure there's probably more information I should supply, but I'm honestly not sure what that would be.
I just got myself a Dell Inspiron 1440. And decided to install my favorite distro Debian. I got the installation to go with no issue and all seems to be working fine. However the wireless isn't working. NetworkManager doesnt even detect a wireless card. I followed the instructions here and installed the b43-fwcutter and then issued the modprobe b43 and modprobe b43legacy commands. Then I issued the iwconfig command and this was the output.
Also, I've been doing some research and found out about some file located /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules. So I looked in mine and found out that only my eth0 is added.
My wireless network doesn't work. I get no list of broadcasting networks. I have runned 'collectHWData.sh'. This is the output. Does anyone know what I should do to make my wireless work? The problem occurs on my clean installation of SuSe 11.3 on my laptop PC C500 Compaq.
Code: collectNWData.sh V0.6.5.4.1 (Rev: 1.282, Build: 2011/01/25 19:33:38 UTC) !!! CND0470I: Reduced analysis capability and less network information because script was
Since my update to OpenSuse 11.2 knetworkmanager refuses to connect to WEP enabled networks (worked fine with knetworkmanager 11.1). I am sure that I use the correct password and I tried on 3 different networks. The manager is connecting to open networks and WAP protected networks without problems. I saw on other forums that there were similar problems with previous versions of networkmanager. But I could not find a solution for my problem.
I just installed OpenSuSE 11.3 x86_64, and as I'm new to OpenSuSE I can't get my wireless to work. I believe it should work because it worked out of the box in Ubuntu (9.10 and 10.04)
At first I didn't see any network icon in the notification area, but after some googling figured out to enable NetworkManager instead of ifup. Now there is an icon, and clicking it I can see wireless networks, but when I try to connect it tries for a while, then seems to give up.
I am using 11.3 (64-bit gnome) and have a new Tenda w322p wireless n card, this works absolutely fine under windows, but I also bought it due to reviews saying it worked with linux. The card appears in network settings as RaLink WLAN controller and uses kernel module rt2800pci, I have also tried typing in the network ssid etc manually but it hangs on exiting network manager (will post what it says later, after writing this) I used drivers from here:Ralink corp., and used the rt3062 one(5th one down?)
I have brought my son a samsung n150 mini laptop. It has a "realtek rtl8192e wireless lan 802.11n pci-e nic" card fitted to it. I have tried downloading the drivers from samsung and realtek, but still can't get it to connect. It see's the local connections but when i try to connect it says it is unable to.
Just today I installed opensuse 11.3 on my Compaq CQ61. Even though I am able to connect to networks (both with an ethernet cable and wireless) I don't have internet access. I have used opensuse for a very brief period in the past and I had no such problem.
I could use Wireless network. I could see several different networks in my range. Then suddenly the network stoppedworking, and I can no longer see any networks under "Wireless networks".The Wired networks works fine.I tried upgrading ubuntu, but nothing changed. Just to confirm, I rebooted the computer in Windows Vista (Dual boot) andconfirmed that Wireless worked fine there. No hardware problem then.The suggestions I have found on this and other forums suggest looking at the output from iwconfig and ifconfig. But since I'm a n00b at Ubuntu I don't know what to make of it.
This is the output: emil@emils:~$ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions.
My son lost his USB Wireless stick for his Computer. I had thought I heard that if you had a second wireless router, you could use it somehow to detect the wireless router you have already set up in your home (like using a wireless card)? Is this what Ad-Hoc is? Either way, can this be done and if so how? I use a WRT54Gx2 Lynksys router and have a TRENDNET TEW-432BRP wireless router and also a spare D-link DI-514. I use ubuntu 10.04, and also wanted to know if I connected one of the router to his on the LAn port could he connect msaybe through an Ad-Hoc on my local computer here? He uses XP on his. I'm a newbie to linux and networking in general.
