Ubuntu Networking :: Cant Get Wireless Working - Have 2 Adapters ?

Mar 24, 2010

I have a Netgear WG111T USB and a Edimax EW-7711UAn USB.

I have the latest version of ubuntu.

I have installed ndiswrapper, and loaded the windows drivers in for the netgear, and it will show up in iwconfig but wont connect to anything, I got rid of network manager and installed wicd as I heard that may solve the problem, to no avail.

The Edimax one, I got because I read it worked straight out of the box, but looking into it apparently i need to compile the firmware from ralinks website, but I get errors with that.

Im not too fussed what one I use as long as I get a wireless connection, currently i have it connected to my laptop through a cable and bridging the connections.

If I type in iwconfig with the edimax:


iwconfig with the netgear:

Ubuntu Networking :: Managing / Changing Multiple Wireless Adapters?

Jan 2, 2011

I'm in a spot where my wireless access is about 200 ft from my computer so I bought a tl-wn721 adapter. I have already gotten the drivers for it but somehow I am still stuck with my wireless adapter built in to my sony vaio sz220 (yeah I know it's old...that's why I run ubuntu). So how do I change wireless adapters? The system does say that the realtek drivers associated with the 721 adapter are in use and enabled but in Win 7 I have much higher signal than what is currently displayed. Usually it's somewhere in the high 80 or 90s. Now it's hard to even get 70 and that's how I know that I'm on my built in adapter. I ran lspci -nn and this was my output. I might just not be searching for the right thing. BTW I'm running 10.04 LTS.

00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS, 943/940GML and 945GT Express Memory Controller Hub [8086:27a0] (rev 03)
00:01.0 PCI bridge [0604]: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS, 943/940GML and 945GT Express PCI Express Root Port [8086:27a1] (rev 03)


Like some others I have found people are having problems with network manager from time to time. It seems that wicd is the solution. Will this work with ubuntu 10.04?

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Can Find What Wireless Adapters Are Supported?

Jan 2, 2011

My recent CENT OS install went very well. However the only thing missing is wireless support for my modest FR-300USB Wireless adapter. Since I do not have the expertise to create a driver I need to know where I can find what wireless adapters are supported.

Ubuntu Networking :: Compatibility Between Routers And Built-in Wireless Module?

Sep 2, 2010

I was going to buy a TP-link wireless router (802.11b/g/n) but while I was reading the consumer's reviews I saw some people were saying that they couldn't make it work with ubuntu. So, I'm starting wandering if there is somewhere any compatibility list? I mean if for instance TP-link or D-link would work with broadcom's chip. I would like to use my laptop's built-in wireless module which is HP Broadcom corp. BCM4306 802.11b/g. My laptop is a HP Pavilion zv6000.

Fedora Networking :: Deny Access To Wireless Routers?

Mar 26, 2009

Here's the issue: from time to time I have to take away my son's access to the internet, so I exclude his laptop from my wireless Linksys router. Works like a charm, or it did until he discovered that my neighbor also has a wireless router, and hasn't secured it.

So my son sits in the corner of the house closest to my neighbor and uses their internet.

Is there any way I can tell his laptop to NOT access a particular router? Or even better, to only access my router?

Fedora Networking :: WiFi Does Not Seem To Find Wireless Routers

Aug 4, 2009

Every time I start up my Samsung NC10 the wifi doesn't seem to find my wireless router at all and instead tries to connect to my printers network. To solve this I need to disable and re-enable wireless until it automatically connects. I know this isn't exactly a major problem, it's just getting pretty annoying. I'm using Fedora 11 btw.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Any List Of Wireless PCI Cards Supported By OSS 11.3?

Aug 21, 2010

I recently read over here: Getting Your Wireless to Work : "For example, open-source firmware for the Broadcom BCM4306/3 BCM4318, and BCM4311/1 was just released. Future openSUSE versions will be able to include this firmware and those devices will work immediately..." I am looking for PCI cards for desktops. Besides the list of supported chipsets at [URL], is there a brand name list with firmware support by OSS 11.3? At the moment, I have a Netgear WG311v3 which believe has been causing system instabilities in both linux and windoze:

OpenSUSE Wireless :: "iwlist Wlan0 Scan" Gives Back List Of Detected Wireless Networks

Mar 21, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Ethernet Adapters Detected But Disabled?

Mar 6, 2011

I'm trying to install a second NIC on a computer running 10.10 x64 server edition, but am having a bit of trouble and hoping someone can help. I got a used gigabit PCIe ethernet adapter and hooked it up, but it didn't display when I ran ifconfig, so I assumed that it was broken. However, when I plugged in a known working 10/100 adapter from another machine it also wasn't configured.

I then did a bit of investigating and found that both cards ARE detected, but are unable to work for an unknown reason. Here's the output of "sudo lspci | grep -r Ethernet"

00:08.0 Bridge: nVidia Corporation MCP55 Ethernet (rev a3) 01:07.0 Ethernet controller: ADMtek NC100 Network Everywhere Fast Ethernet 10/100 (rev 11) 02:00.0 Ethernet controller: D-Link System Inc DGE-560T PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (rev 11) The bridge is the working onboard NIC, and the others are the ones that I'm trying to get to work. This also might help diagnose the problem:

sudo lshw -C network
*-network DISABLED

General :: Ubuntu: Failure To Login With Multiple Video Adapters?

May 10, 2010

I have a computer with three video cards and six monitors. Works great on Windows. Trying to get it to run Ubuntu 10.4 as well. It loads fine when I have it configured to run on one adapter; detects both screens, runs ok. But I want to turn the other 4 monitors on and run the whole thing as one extended desktop (one session, etc). So I downloaded and installed the newest ATI driver for Linux, which seems to work, kinda. I ran this to set up the screens:

aticonfig --adapter=all --initial -f Now when I boot, Ubuntu seems to turn on all the screens (3 viewports, each with two cloned displays from what I can tell). When I enter my login info OR move the mouse off the main screen, the screens freeze and the kbd/ms become unresponsive.

Ubuntu Networking :: Refresh Available Wireless Networks List In Nm Applet?

Jul 4, 2011

Is there a way I can refresh the list of available wireless networks in the network manager applet? It works correctly when I've just booted but doesn't after I resume after suspending. There's just a message like "wireless networks not available".

I can assure you that the wi-fi is not disabled using a button (my laptop doesn't have such a button), "Fn" key combination or in any other way and the network doesn't go down when I need it.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: List A Wep String Completely Different Than The One Have Specified

Feb 21, 2010

My suse wireless has started a new trick: it will list a wep string completely different than the one I have specified. If I correct it some 12-15 times, I can eventually sign on, but not predictably.

There is also intermittently the error message that "wireless is disabled" Trying to figure that one out is a real chore.

The manual wireless switch that works under windows seems to be irrelevant under linux, but the linux wireless seems to only work if I have previously connected under windows.
