Ubuntu Networking :: Acer 5920 Wifi Not Working With 10.04?

Sep 6, 2010

I've recently installed Jaunty on my Acer 5920 and I'm in love. Yet I can't get the wifi to work with my pathetic mortal knowledge of gnu/linux. Every time I enter the password to log into my wifi router it immediately asks me for it again not accepting it and I don't have clue what to do about it. I'm using a Acer 5920 with a Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG card

I was using Ubuntu 10.04 for the last 6 months, recently I have upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10, it worked fine for around four days, Now the problem is When I power up the system using power button, the system do not power up, I tried to boot from cd both Ubuntu and Windows XP, none works, I tried to go to BIOS setup using F2 and F12 (Acer Aspire 5920 model laptop), but i could not, just a blank display appears, here are some symptoms:

1. When powered on - LED indicating pocressor operation glows for a moment and disappears, few other LEDS indicating batter, music play, forward,stop LEDs glows as as usual,

2. Only blank screen appears

3. tried to switch on the wifi and bluetooth buttons, both did not glow indicating it is not working.

4. Paculiar thing is this symptons appears first time, suddenly all stop glowing and after 2 to 3 seconds again the system comes to this state and remains forever.


1. Is it possible to be hardware problem?
2. If it a software problem the suspect can be Ubuntu 10.10 version?

Ubuntu Networking :: No WiFi Connections On Acer Extensa 5620z

Nov 11, 2010

I have a problem with wifi network,installed ubuntu a few days ago.I have bcm 4312 wireless adapter, activated the broadcom STA driver, until this moment i didnt update the OS,just out of the box OS, with activated wireless STA driver.After reboot ,the wifi was working, it found some networks, but it wont connect.Im trying to connect to a WPA2-personal , AES encryption network,i type in the password, im 100% sure i type it correctly, but it wont connect, it just asks for password again and again.I was thinking maybe i should update the OS, and i did it, after the update, i checked the STA driver, it was activated, working fine, but this time Network Manager didnt find any networks,as if there is no wireless device.How can i fix this ?

Ubuntu Networking :: Acer Aspire 5050's Wifi Not Work?

Feb 5, 2011

Fresh install Ubuntu 10.10 on Acer Aspire 5050 with new hard drive. I struggled to turn the Wifi's button turn on but led light always on. It does not detect wifi driver. I installed ndiswrapper to get Acer's Winxp driver: netathr.inf by Windows Wireless Drivers from Ubuntu Software download. It's same thing as ndiswrapper.

Fedora Networking :: Enabling Wifi On An Acer 1360

Dec 24, 2009

trying to bring back to useful ife an old laptop: an Acer 1360.

I have installed kmod-ndiswrapper to assist me. The laptop has one of these:


00:0a.0 Ethernet controller: Linksys, A Division of Cisco Systems [AirConn] INPROCOMM IPN 2220 Wireless LAN Adapter (rev 01)

I have grabbed the Windows drivers for this card and installed:


[graham@old-acer ~]$ ndiswrapper -l
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, it will be ignored in a future release.
neti2220 : driver installed
device (17FE:2220) present

lsmod shows:


ndiswrapper 158060 0

Looking good to me - (is that conf file required an issue?) but Network Manager doesn't recognise that I have any wlan running at all. The Wifi button on the laptop is on but 'red' and not 'green' for up and running.

Um. Next steps? I suppose I could buy a compatible wifi card and slap it in?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Still Not Working On 11.04 & Acer Aspire One?

Apr 29, 2011

This bug has been around for years now?!? Surely this can be fixed by now, would somebody please feel this very common issue. I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Acer Aspire One 110AB netbook and everything seems to work fine except the wireless - I can connect via ethernet no problem.

While the wireless can scan for networks - it seems them but they seem to be rather weak signals and also no matter never connect UNLESS I turn off ALL WEP/WPA security clearly not an option.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Working On Acer Aspire One D150?

Mar 22, 2010

I had UBR installed and working fine for a month or so, wireless and everything. Then I did a clean re-install while trying to add WinXP to half of my drive.Anyway, with the new install, my wireless chip (BCM4312 802.11b/g) isn't switching on at all. I've tried installing the Broadcom driver that appears when I run Hardware Drivers, but that doesn't help.With the old install, the wireless switch and indicator light on the front of the netbook worked, now nothing.

Output from lshw -C network is:

OpenSUSE Network :: Networking Not Working On Acer Netbook

Jun 7, 2011

While installing the openSuSE on my Netbook (Acer AspireOne D250) with a bootable thumbdrive Live image, the installation seemed to go fine, but after the installation was completed, there was no "network"! I checked and the system auto-sensed the drivers, but when I go into the network, even trying to manually set up the IP info, Yast reports NO NETWORK running!!

I then went out and bought a USB CD-ROM drive and installed using the boot CD (Network install) on the external USB CD-ROM drive. It booted up fine, and installed "RIGHT OFF OF THE NETWORK", but when the install was through, I could not access the network. Same error: NO NETWORK RUNNING!! Now I've installed openSuSE on this unit before (v11.4) and it worked fine (after I changed the wireless driver to the legacy driver) but this time it's NOT working!! My 13yr old son uses the Netbook, and was so excited to get to use LINUX instead of Windows ... until now.

Ubuntu Networking :: Acer 5520 Wireless Randomly Stops Working

Apr 28, 2010

My Acer's Wireless randomly stops working until you fully shut down and start the computer.(Not Restart but Shutdown->Powebutton) I am using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid.

I am wondering if anyone knows why it would stop working properly, and/or how to fix it?

And since this is a off and on problem I might not be able to provide details immediately from time of crash, since I need my computer on the wireless.

One symptom that really stands out is that the cooling fan is spinning as fast as it possibly can and processor usage is spiking around 80/200 on a process called phy0.(relevancy unknown)

As I was typing this post on my other computer, my laptop crashed and I lost the lshw -C Network output I had. If asked to, I will post the one from when it is working. Also I will post any other info you need from when I can.

Ubuntu Networking :: Acer Laptop Without Internet And Not Working WLAN Button

Nov 21, 2010

My problem with UBUNTU is that I can not use acer-wmi because I get this ERROR :


... so I can not use the acer_wmi . But this is not my only Problem :

It is most likely caused of the missing " Firmware " / Driver for my WLAN Card ( Internal ) . Currently I use Ubuntu 10.10 but I tested 10.04 too before 10.10 and it found my Card but not the Button .

So I want to know if there is any solution for my problem .

If it is important :

I use an Acer eMachines e525 with Windows Vista Home Basic ( Pimped up ) and Wubi . I saw a lot of people with simmilar problems they have it as only boot option .

Ubuntu Networking :: Realtek WLAN Adapter Not Working On Acer TravelMate 250 With 10.10?

Jun 22, 2011

(For the record, I have already read the other threads. Either they don't work for me or are too difficult.) My laptop is an Acer TravelMate 250. I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 (2.6.35-28 generic i686) after erasing Windows 7. At first, the usb wireless adapter worked. Then, I restarted the PC because of some updates and it didn't work anymore. In "edit connections" I find "Auto SpeedTouch8350DB" which is the wireless connection (on my sis's computer it works). When it tries to connect, I'm asked the password but it doesn't work.

Fedora Networking :: Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Not Working On Acer Travelmate 8100 12?

Dec 29, 2009

I have installed Fedora 12 on my laptop and subsequently spent most of the day trying to get the wireless connection to work. Looks like I am not alone with Wireless issues Through searching and reading today I think the problem lies with the fact that the wireless on/off switch is not working. Under Windows, when I press the wifi toggle switch it starts flashing orange. I haven't managed to get it to do anything under Fedora.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Isn't Working?

Apr 19, 2010

For the past almost year, once in a while my wifi won't work.At home,I use an ethernet cable. When I go out, or am out of town, about 1/3 times the wifi won't connect, and won't even find access points. Once this happens, no matter how many times I restart, the wifi won't work. The ONLY way I can get it to work again is if I reboot with the ethernet cord plugged into the laptop and into a router/switch/hub. My neighbor (the one who got me into Ubuntu) is a pretty experienced linux network admin who looked a my laptop and has no idea what is causing this. I've attached my syslog log entry for the last time this happened. Does anyone know why this is? I LOVE ubuntu but I may need to switch back to Windows because I NEED wifi to work.You will see in the logfile I tried connecting to two different APs. The one that always works is the second one, called linksys.

Hardware :: Get To Use Special WIFI Button On Acer?

Jul 16, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire 5720z notebook/laptop, and got slackware 13.1 x64 installed. Everything works like a charm ( touchpad, keyboard, screenresolution ), but I a problem with the wireless 'card'. When I just installed it (as dualboot to the MS Vista it came equipped with) wicd didn't function. Took me ages to find out the standard Atheros AR5001 thing is fully supported under Linux (hence the very few topics on the card ) But still: ifconfig or iwconfig wlan0 up gave me an error 132 message, which through google I learned: hardware switch is set to off.

Anyway: There's this litte button on the first row of 'special' keys, with a blinkenlights (led ) that indicates that Wlan is on (or there is wlan activity). Under Vista, it blinks and flashes with Wlan activity, Under Linux: Nothing, Not during Boot, not during never! Under Vista, when pressing the button, the Wlan is switched off, and on: The internet connections are lost, and when switched on, network activity is restored. Attention please: It's NOT a switch, just a button. It took me some time to give up getting the Wlan going under linux, rebooted into Vista, noticed the light did flip on,.. and under Vista no problem. I rebooted in to Linux again, and voila: WORKING! Happy! Succes! Profit! Nope: the next day: nothing. I didn't press the button. I could press until forever, but under Linux: nothin. Rebooted into windows, had to switch it on, logged out, rebooted into Linux: Working again.

To cut a long story short: the button doesn't work under Linux. Since it's a ' soft ' button, can I switch it on by a command? Since it apparently switches itself off randomly ( maybe sleep, hybernate or any low power state auto switches it off ) and I can only flip it on in Vista.. not the most desireable way to work.

There are a few ' quick start ' buttons next to it ( which I don't ever use ) to start Internet,Mail ,Bluetooth), dummy buttons with leds for hdd activity, caps and scroll lock and some acer only keys with no funtion under linux either )

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.10 - WiFi Connection Not Working

Feb 3, 2010

I just recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on a dell laptop. My WiFi connection that I've been using on the same computer for years is not working when I log on. However if I run the burnt image cd and choose the option "Use Ubuntu without making any changes to your computer" I am asked if I want install proprietary drivers. If I activate one "Broadcom STA" I can connect to the wireless connection in my house. When I am using the version installed on my laptop it doesn't ask me if I want to install the drivers and it doesn't even find them when I go to hardware drivers under system. So to sum it up I can get connection when I run Ubuntu from the cd but not when I run the Ubuntu on my laptop.

Moving back to 10.04, I've been trying for DAYS to get my wifi working properly. I've been scouring the boards trying everything under the sun,including attempting to install a new kernal, also a complete wipe/reinstall. I hope I have better luck with 10.04 or I'm ringing the bell on Ubuntu all together.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi With Rt5390 In 11.04 Not Working

May 11, 2011

I bought my wife a Compaq Presario CQ56 for Mother's Day, took it home and put Ubuntu 11.04 on it because she didn't like Windows 7 which was on it and love Ubuntu on the other computers in the house. Anyway, the wireless adapter, an rt5390sta isn't working and have tried downloading the adapter from the ratech web site and it will not compile. Anyone have any ideas on how to get this working. I tried another solution which was mentioned on the forums here of removing the options from the network manager in preferred applications and that didn't work either.

Ubuntu Networking :: Ad-hoc Wifi + Frozen Bubble = Not Working?

May 31, 2010

Yesterday while me and my friend were in the train, we tried to set up a wireless network and play frozen bubble. So one of us makes a new wireless connection, the other connects to it, but we observed this: When the creator of the wifi network opens the game and tries to start the multiplayer, it says that it cannot connect to the server. On the other computer there is no problem with it. We tried to change the host of the connection, but the result was the same (the host computer couldn't connect to the "server")

Ubuntu Networking :: Getting WiFi Working On Zoostorm Freedom XL

Jun 1, 2010

I've recently invested in a new netbook, a Zoostorm Freedom XL and decided to install the Ubunto Netbook Remix alongside the Windows 7 starter edition which comes preinstalled.Everything went amazingly smoothly, and I now have a 99% working system - the only issue is the wireless networking.The wifi adapter doesn't seem to be being recognised by the Ubuntu install at all, to the extent that even using the wifi hotkey the wifi indicator does not come on and I cannot access wireless networks.

I've done a bit of reading, and it seems that ndiswrapper may be the solution I'm looking for, however I'm not entirely sure how to go about implementing this.The network card, in Windows, is simply recognised as "802.11n Wireless Lan Card" and the device manager properties suggest it's manufactured by Ralink and using driver version

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Stopped Working After Update / What To Do?

Jul 3, 2010

I've been running ubuntu on my Asus 1001ha netbook for half a year or so. I ran Karmic for at while, wifi working and all, accepted the recommended updates when Update Manager popped up and everything was fine until one day I let Update Manager do it's thing and my wifi stopped working.. Lycid had just come out that same week, so I thought "screw it" and installed 10.04 instead..

So I've been running 10.04 for a couple of months now, everything working fine, including the wifi - until today.. Update Manager suggested some upgrades, I accepted and *pouf* my wifi is gone again..

That's the second time Update Manager knocks out my wifi, any way to roll back todays update or how to the the wifi working again?
