Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Get Wireless To Work At All?
Aug 4, 2010
I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a computer I can't get the wireless to work. I looked into it, and I believe the problem is that I don't have the right driver to work with the wireless card, but I wasn't able to tell what my wireless card is properly. And when I got the bcmwl-kernel-source package and installed it, the driver still didn't appear under "hardware drivers". Compounding the problem, I can't use any sudo commands for some reason because when it prompts me to enter the sudo password, the keys other than "enter" don't seem to work. I probably don't have the right information up there.
I want to switch my laptop from XP to Ubuntu, but right now, i cant risk installing it. i dont want to have it partitioned so i can dual boot, so for now i only run the try-it-out mode.Before i consider installing though, i want to see if i can get everything to work ahead of time, that way im not regreting instalation. I have a Compaq Presario V2000 laptop, with 55GB hard drive and 516MB ram. So far, the trial mode is working great, but the wireless will not work. Ive tried to install the driver, but i am unable to do so. I have looked this up, and i have tried many things, and so far, none have worked.I was wondering if it was just part of the trial thing or not, but it is a Broadcom Wireless BCM4318 driver
I have a Belkin Enhanced Wireless USB Network Adapter Model # F6D4050 v2. The drivers are for windows but the windows wireless drivers app doesnt work. I see a tutorial for a linksys that appears to have the same chipset, but I am not sure if any of the steps need to be modified, also my kernel is a bit different. Here is my kernel:
Recently I have installed Fedora 14 on my other laptop. It's a dual boot with Windows 7. Everything worked perfectly fine, networking included, until my friend didn't accidently turned off the wireless by pressing a wireless button on the laptop. Since then the wireless on Fedora doesn't work. It does on Windows thought. I've tried restarting the laptop few times, but the wireless still doesn't want to work again.
I can't get my card Intel Wireless 5300 AGN to work. I'm running Slackware 13.1 and it's a full, fresh install.I get to show up with lspci -v:Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 5300 AGN [Shiloh] Network Connection...But it will not show up with 'ifconfig' which will only list the local loopback (yes we have have a eth problem as well but one thing at a time).
I've been experiencing a problem with Fedora in which when I enable Wireless in Fedora, Wireless networking does not work in windows. HOwever, when disabled, it works correctly. Windows claims it is "not able to find any networks to connect to"
EDIT: It seems that when wireless is disabled manually on fedora before shutdown, there are no problems in windows.
I'm very new to Ubuntu and Linux in general. I installed Ubunutu NBR on a HP Mini 2140. After some wireless issues and a bad decision, I deleted the ssb.ko files. Now the wireless won't work at all. How can I repair the SSB modules or reinstall those files?
I've installed Ubuntu 9.1 on my Acer Aspire One ZG5 that was previously running Win XP with the wireless working fine. In ubuntu,though, i can't get the wireless to work at all and I don't really even know how to troubleshoot it. I've opened a terminal and used sudo to update various packages, but still nothing. It does appear as though the system recognizes the card since I can configure it, but I'm not keen on playing wi8th the BSSID and MAC address stuff because I just don't have any confidence that it will change my situation. Has anyone had any success with this setup (ubuntu 9.1 and acer one)? Is there a step-by-step wireless troubleshooting/ configuration process that's generic to ubuntu?
Let me start off by saying that I'm a complete Linux-noob. I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 and I'm really enjoying it. I was planning to install it for quite a while now but now that I have my own computer, I actually could make it happen.That being said, it's a whole difference with Windows though and sometimes it's hard to find my way in this new system. My main problem is that I can't seem to get my wireless connection working. From what I've read online this problem is not uncommon with Ubuntu 9.10?
I tried searching for my wireless card drivers in 'System > Administration > Hardware Drivers' but that didn't really work out. It did find a wireless card driver but when I try to activate it, it returns an error message. All the other drivers seem to be installed so I can't really see what the problem is. Can anyone help me with this?BTW, I think I also have a problem with the graphics card driver. When I try to active the 'extra' desktop effects is says this can't be activate. I already tried installing Compiz and the Composite Manager.
I have a problem with my laptop's wireless card. My laptop is Grundig GNB-250D. According to lspci my wireless card is a "Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11b/g Wireless (rev 43)".
I can browse the internet just fine if I use an ethernet cable. Also the card worked perfectly on Windows Vista. I tried installing the drivers using Ndiswrapper and it didn't seem to work By the way I followed this guide: [URL]
I have been messing around with ubuntu for a few hours now trying to get my wireless driver to work, but I am having no luck. It seems like I installed the driver right, and network-admin use to show the wireless, but I couldn't unlock it to mess with properties. Now it doesn't even show wireless, and I still can't unlock it, so I'm unable to get my wireless card to work.
I installed Ubuntu and I cant get my wireless connection to work. I found that I need ndiswrapper to update my drivers following the sticky post in here. However there is a problem, because I cant successfully run ndiswrapper on my system.
last night as a download was going the Internet just stopped connection. Then asked me for the WPA & WPA2 personal password. I didn't know what to put since I had already tried multiple pass words I restarted the router.Now for some reason the computer won't pick up the router wireless signal. It picks up multiple connection's around my area so I know that it's not the wireless card. The router is connected via ethernet at the moment so I know the internet works.Do I have to find the ssid? Maybe the router reconfigured it's self when I restart it and broadcasting mode turned off... I just don't know
I have been trying for months to get my wireless working on my acer laptop and I am now beyond despair. I using an Acer Extensa 67000 and here is what is at issue:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ lspci -nn | grep 'Wireless' 06:04.0 Network controller : Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG [Calexico2] Network Connection [8086:4220] (rev 05) ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ lspci -vn On this one I posted just what I thought would be relevant:
I just installed Ubontu 9.10 and I am a first time user. I am attempting to run my Sabrent usb 2.0 wireless-N ieee 802.11n device with Ubontu but I cant seem to figure it out. I can not access it as a regular usb device and I can't access the installation driver. The device loads up an installation screen when I use it on windows so I know its not the device. Not sure how to install it or to get it to run from here.
I have a Dell inspiron E1705 that I recently installed 10.04 LTS on. The wireless card i'm using is a Belkin express card that worked perfectly fine with 9.1 but won't work with 10.04. lspci -v output shows the card as installed with a driver listed but under capabilities is says "access denied".
when i'm connected with wired (eth0) to my access point vpn connection connect flawless but when connect with wireless (eth2) to the same access point vpn connection failed i don't know whats the deal. i try disable eth0 (ifconfig eth0 down). it's disabled now but vpn connection still didn't work
I'm running 10.04 64 bit, and the Intel PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN does not work with n routers. I'd like to either upgrade the card, or buy a usb adapter, but I can't figure out which cards will work. I've searched[URL].. which lists supported wifi cards, but most of the info on that page is not relevant to lucid, and hasn't been updated at all this year. I saw elsewhere that any card with the atheros chipset will work, but what cards have this? Will all of them with this chipset work?
I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 twice on two different laptops that had wireless cards that weren't working until I sudo apt-get update(d) them. After that, the wireless cards seem to miraculously work. But I was able to download them because they had working ethernet cards.
I'm working on a new laptop (Dell Inspiron 1150). I installed Ubuntu 9.10 like normal but I could not get a wired connection. I plugged in directly to my modem and it still cannot connect at all. It says that Auto eth0 is available, but it tries to connect but can't seems to make it. I downgraded to 9.04 to see if there was any changes, and there aren't. The same problem persists.
I've got this USB wireless stick using a Realtek RTL 8187l chipset plugged into a Lucid box running kernel 2.6.32-25. Problem: On every boot it will not connect because the stick is not recognized. Doing a lsusb or lspci reveals that it doesn't appear to be listed. However. if I unplug the stick and plug it in again it works fine until next boot. code...
Doing lsmode doesn't show any USB or chipset modules loaded.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop. Up until about a week ago, my wireless worked fine, but now it rarely connects. Sometimes the connection indicator shows that I am connected, but when I click on it it doesn't show any active networks. Even when I use a wired connection it doesn't always work.
I love ubuntu, but I don't know how to use a command line to save my life. I'd just as soon never use a terminal ever. My big issue is I cannot get my wireless adapter to work. It is a keebox w150nu, which is based off the Ralink RT3070 chip. I am willing to use command line to get this thing to work because I love ubuntu to death, but everything I have tried has failed. I have gone to the Ralink website and downloaded the Tar.bz file from there. t
The file I grabbed is the third one down from the top: [URL].
I have absolutely no idea what to do from there with the file however. Please understand that I have zero idea how to use command line in a terminal. What I have to do to make this work? Is there a usb wireless N adapter that works straight away with ubuntu 10.10, as in I plug it in before the install, and it is immediately recognized and works immediately?
When using the b43-pci-bridge driver for my broadcom card I can't get the wireless to work while if I use the wl driver it does. This is the only problem that I have that I can't use the wl because it doesn't allow me to change the mode of the card to monitor where as the b43 is compatible with mode change as well as with aircrack.
This is what lspci -nnk shows: Code: 06:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM43XG [14e4:4329] (rev 01) Kernel driver in use: b43-pci-bridge Kernel modules: ssb and neither network manager or iwconfig show blank while using the b43 driver but using the wl they do work....
