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 :: GNOME 3 Broke AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter - Could Not Make A Connection

Apr 23, 2011

I own an ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC. It has an Atheros Communication, Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. 03:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01) 03:00.0 0280: 168c:002b (rev 01) I cannot see any SSIDs including my home Verizon FiOS 802.11 G WPA2-AES-TKIP encrypted network. I went to Starbucks to try to connect to their free Wi-Fi and I could not make a connection. How do I solve this problem so that I can connect to a SSID of my choice and make a wireless connection while using GNOME 3?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: D-Link USB Wireless .11n Dongle Configured, But No Connection?

Apr 27, 2010

I recently bought a D-Link DIR-655 router capable of 802.11n operation, upgrading from a DIR-624 router only capable of 802.11g operation. While my overall setup uses wired connections, other people in the house prefer wireless, and the upgrade was undertaken more for a hoped for increase in wireless range, rather than the possibility of increased speed, since the router is located to accommodate the wired connections. However, to test the 802.11n operation I bought a D-Link DWA-130 USB dongle for my now 5-year old laptop, which comes with an otherwise satisfactory 100Mbs ethernet port(eth1) and an 802.11g wireless card(eth0). By checking the dmesg | grep firmware output after I plugged in the dongle I determined that the necessary firmware was rtl8192sfw.bin, which I found on the web, and downloaded into the directory /lib/RTL8192SU.

A subsequent reboot and then YaST > Network Devices > Network Settings showed the device as wlan0, but not configured. I changed the Network Setup Method to ifup (since I can see no way to do a device configuration in Network Manager), and configured the device, and at the same time deleted the configuration for the existing 802.11g wireless card(eth0). I then rebooted, went back into YaST to confirm the wlan0 device was configured and the 802.11g device (eth0) was not, changed the Network Setup Method back to Network Manager, rebooted again. Making sure that the router was set to only transmit/receive using 802.11n I then typed iwlist scan. To my surprise, the output showed first that the supposedly unconfigured eth0 device seemed to be still active, for it found my home network, and claimed that the protocol used was 802.11g. On the other hand, the newly configured wlan0 device produced the message: "Interface doesn't support scanning: Network is down".

First, should I expect iwlist scan to work for a device that shows as unconfigured? And even if it should work, shouldn't it show 802.11n as the protocol, assuming that the router is in fact telling the truth? Is there any independent means to determine if the router is only using 802.11n as it claims? Second, the overall goal is to make the wireless network in the house 802,11n only, and since the dongle is backward compatible with 802.11g, I would expect to permanently unconfigure the eth0 device and use the dongle, both here and on the road. I do not need two wireless connections on my laptopThe laptop is running SuSE 11.2 as of about a month ago. Some relevant(I hope) command line output:siracusa:~ # uname -aLinux siracusa 2.6.31.12-0.2-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-03-16 21:25:39 +0100 i686 i686 i386 GNU/LinuxUSB Information

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Continued To Lose Wireless Connection After An Hour Of Use?

Sep 13, 2010

I just started using OpenSUSE on an old laptop. It seems that I have my graphical problems at least temporarily solved, but I continued to lose my wireless connection after an hour of use. This is an old and well supported chipset (RT2500) and I had never had any issues with it before. I use WPA security, and one kind poster suggested I had a line for using the old "wext" driver in the /etc/sysconfig/ifcfg-wlan0 file, and that seems to have sorted it since I have not had any further issues since doing that edit. I eventually found the information on my own:

# Note: This option requires a wpa driver supporting it, like
# the 'nl80211' driver used by default since openSUSE 11.3.
# When you notice problems with your hardware, please file a

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Creating The Initial Wireless Connection?

Nov 15, 2010

There seem to be a number of people that believe the junk that NetworkManager is buggy.As I believe the opposite, I want to offer more detailed instructions on how to create the initial connection, and how to troubleshoot the process. Once readers of this group have commented on this draft, I plan to ask the moderators to make it a sticky.

This description will be specific to the KDE desktop. The steps will be similar for Gnome, but the details may be different.

Step 1: Do you have a Network Manager applet in the system tray? If not, use YaST =>
Network Devices => Network Settings. Under the "Global Options" tab, click on the "User Controlled with Network Manager" button. If it is already set, you will get a warning box when "Network Settings" starts.

Step 2: Now you should see the NM applet. Click on it and check the popup. If the "Enable Wireless" checkbox is inactive (gray), there are several possibilities: (1) Your wireless device driver is not loaded, (2) the necessary firmware is not available, or (3) an rfkill switch/button is wrong. For (1), check "hwinfo --network" and check the "Driver" line. If it is blank, then you need to run the command "/sbin/lspci -nn" if the device is connected to a PCI bus, or "lsusb" if a USB device. Post the results on the Wireless forum. For (2), look at the output of "dmesg | grep firmware", which will list the name of the file(s) to be loaded.

For Broadcom devices that use either b43 or b43legacy, the firmware is obtained by using the command "/usr/sbin/install_b43xx_firmware". You will need a wired connection to complete this step. For (3), you will also need a wired connection and install the
"rfkill" package using the command "sudo zypper in rfkill". The interrogate the current settings with "/usr/sbin/rfkill list". If any device is "Hard blocked", then wireless will be disabled.

Step 3: Once the "Enable Wireless" checkbox is active, check it and click on "Manage
Connections". Choose the Wireless tab and click on Add. Enter the name for this connection. You will probably want to check the "Connect Automatically" box. Next click on the Scan button. If you do not see your Access Point (AP) in the map, you will not be able to get a connection. Click on the AP you want, and click OK. The (E)SSID should be in the SSID box. The other boxes on this screen should be OK as is. If you have several APs with the same SSID, but you wish to restrict the connection to only one of them, then you should enter its MAC address in the BSSID box.

This usage is rare. Next click on the "Wireless Security" tab and enter any encryption secrets. The correct type should have been selected. For WEP encryption, you will need to use the hex key, not a passphrase. Once this is complete, click OK to close this screen, and the configure screen. During this process, a popup should appear offering to use a
wallet to store the connection secret. If you use a password on this wallet, you will need to enter that password each time you log in. If you set no password on the wallet, the security level is lowered, but entering a password is avoided.

Step 4: At this point, you will need to disconnect the wire. Whenever the computer can make a hard-wired connection, it will supersede any wireless option. The wireless connection should then occur automatically.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Connection Not Starting Automatically?

Apr 7, 2011

I set up 11.4 in my laptopnd, after updating and downloading the proper firmwareeverytihing runs great. I already configured the wireless network via the standard NetworkManager but the connection never starts automatically. When I boot up it reports all the wireless connections available and also let me connect to hidden networks (mine is not broadcasting so I have to use this option). I had to reconfigure my network options the first time I selected Hidden Networks but it connects fine. Please note I had already selected the "Automatic connection" optionSo the only question is how I configure my equipment so it connects automatically to the already configured network

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Connection Stuck On Activating

May 6, 2011

I've been having problems with connecting to my router with my wireless card. Sometimes knetworkmanager attempts to the connect to my wireless via it's saved profile but it just stays on "Activating" for about 45 seconds then just stops. This only started happening a few days ago, so maybe the new kernel update has something to do with it?

I've tried to debugging the problem myself and have found if I reboot my router knetworkmanager can connect immediately to the wireless router, but also something interesting I found was is I assigned a IP Address and DNS manually on the saved profile it would connect with no problem (No reboot of router required), so it is indicating there is a problem with getting network settings. I've confirmed that the wireless card is not hard or soft blocked through rfkill.

I was using the box standard ath5k driver when this problem started happening and even went as far as a complete reinstall but ironically enough on first boot from a fresh install my wireless could not connect with the problem described above. I've since moved to the compat-wireless drivers but the problem remains.

I checked a couple of logs, one log file of significance was the wpa_suppliment log which was full of these messages: From all my debugging I can only assume that the kernel update is a possible cause for all of this as the problem occurring on first boot of a fresh install sounds like a general bug. I've got all of the requested information about my wireless card below, hope I've got everything:

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless - Lost It - 'wmaster0 No Wireless Extensions', But Then Refers To Wlan0 As The Wireless Connection

Mar 28, 2010

A friend who switched ISP's gave me his old Linksys WRT54-G wireless router. I went through the installation procedure and had a wireless connection up and running - smiley face. I had security set up for WPA, and decided to upgrade it to WPA2. Another smiley face. When I went to connect (had already done so successfully), I noticed it referred to my wireless as Linksys - I was expecting to see the SSID. So I started playing around in Network Manager and now I have things all effed up.

Don't know exactly what I did, but now I have no wireless. So I ran a few commands (lshw -C network, iwconfig, ifconfig, and iwlist scan), and looking at the results I see what appear to be inconsistencies in the output. I've posted them below, and make the following observations:

1. Under the lshw it refers to my wireless connection logical name as wmaster0, and has the correct MAC address, etc.

2. Under the iwconfig it says, 'wmaster0 no wireless extensions', but then refers to wlan0 as the wireless connection (although it does not seem to be running).

3. Under ifconfig I see both a wlan0 and a wlan0:avahi. The wlan0 has no IP, the wlan0:avahi does, but it is incorrect.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Must Be On During Boot Or It Will Not Work

May 11, 2010

I've just upgraded from openSUSE 11.2 to 11.3. In 11.2 everything worked fine: I've booted my laptop, logged in and turn my wireless card on using the hardware wireless button, the KDE Wallet opened up, I inserted the password and voil´┐Ż, wireless connection was on.But after upgrading from 11.3, it doesn't work like that anymore. I need to have the hardware wireless button pressed to on during boot, otherwise Network Manager will not work. And yes, I do check the "Enabled wireless" option, but it doesn't work. When I tried to check it out, I found out that the wireless "Scan" button that scans and displays the available wireless connections shows nothing.So, if I forget to put the wireless on for boot, I must restart and put it on. I've tried log off and log on, and restarting some network services, but neither worked.I have an Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG, as showed below, and I'm posting this message using it.

Result of /sbin/lspci:

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Cannot Connect To AP - Cant Get Wireless To Work

Jun 22, 2010

Suse on an (old even) laptop is even more fun that it is on a desktop. BUT, I still cant get my wireless to work! I have the Encore ENUWI-N3 USB adaptor. Suse sucessfully detects my USB device, recognize its a Wireless lan network adapter, installs it as such (gives it its driver) and adds my wireless menu under network manager. (it gives it the rt2x00) I can enable / disable the USB device from there (its light corroborates that.

So all in all, suse installs my wireless. But I CANNOT find any AP when I scan. Under the "scan" tool (under connec to wireless > A wireless network ect ect) I find no APs. Adding the SSID of the AP manually is of no help either. And the command sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan merely gives - "wlan1 Scan completed" and nothing else. Check ifconfig - not a frame sent/received.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Get The Wireless Connection To Work

Jul 3, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on an Acer Extensia lap top. Thinking about re-installing for two reasons:

1. I can't get the wireless connection to work. It did on the earlier version -- 9.

2. it kept all my previous installs even though I only asked them to save one other OS that I need. The second problem I could live with, though I wouldn't mind having the space that is used on these systems I don't want.

So, should I go back to an earlier version of Ubuntu? If I do re-install can I use the "specify partitions manually" option and get rid of the extra OSs? I'm not exactly a beginner, but neither am I an "expert." Don't want to get into highly technical fixes.

PS I think it may be a compatibility issue with Acer, as I use 10.04 on a dell and don't have the wireless problem. Do I need a driver?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Shows Connection But Doesn't Work

Jun 7, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu on my windows pc with no problems....except for wireless that is. I have a USB Linksys WUSB54G adapter to access my 2WIRE, WEP network. The thing is, it shows up in the top right hand corner. It even gives me the signal strength. But when it comes to using Mozilla, it is never able to access a page. If I try to Ping something, it's unable to. So I thought maybe I need to use ndiswrapper with my .inf and .sys files from the driver for my windows. I installed it, and added the driver to it...everything went O.K. I check it and it says it's installed and working. Again, I can see the wireless networks, and "connect" but when I try to use the connection there is nothing. I have also tried my neighbours non-WEP connection, but it still doesn't work. So I'm sort of at a loss with what I should do now. I see the networks, can "connect" but can't browse. I installed the drivers from my windows, and it still doesn't work. I used a LIVE CD of Knoppix and I can connect to the Network within 30 seconds and start browsing the net.
