Ubuntu Networking :: D-Link USB WLAN Adapter Not Working
Jan 12, 2010
I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on an Acer TravelMate 290E. I've got internet connection through the Ehternet Cable, but when I plug in the D-Link WLAN USB device, although the system recognises it, it is disconnected. How can I connect the WLAN USB device adn get it to work?
I updated Ubuntu to 10.04 after which I noticed the wireless indicator lights on my HP laptop were continually flashing between blue and orange and network performance seemed slow. I did some searching and found and implemented the following change to stop the flashing:
gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/wlan.conf
Copy and paste the below line:
options iwlcore led_mode=1
Since making this change the wireless connection is shut off and I can;t get it to work at all. I first tried simply to remove the change to get back wher I was, but I can;t do that. Can sopmebopdy toell me at least how to get rid of this wlan,conf file ( it was created by the above command) so I can start over?
Coincidentally since making this change my Windows Vista OS fails to start because of errors attributed to a software or hardware change, of which there were none other than the Ubuntu wlan.conf change. . It may be unrelated but I am suspicious of the coincidence. I am running Vista and Ubuntu in a dual boot configuration and all ha run very well until I did the Ubuntu wlan.conf change.
I am now attempting a complete recovery of my Vista system, since it seems irreparably broken. Again coincidence or not?
(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.
It worked with 10.10, but in 11.04 only partially. It would show up in Bluetooth Manager, and I was able to pair with my phone. But after that it always failed to connect. Tried lots of things before I spent $10 on another nameless Chinese one and that worked fine immediately.
just swapping all my computers over to linux as it far far better than anything i've used before. Have the above driver as identified in lsusb.[URL].. Downloaded the linux driver but dont know what to do from here. Tried doing it the windows inf file way but that didnt work. Or more like i couldnt get it working.
I've got Fedora 14 (188.8.131.52-90.fc14.i686.PAE) installed and i'm trying to use hostapd with my Realtek RTL8191S USB WLAN Adapter, but can't get it to work. The driver i'm using is : rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 601.tar.gz
I've just got a TP-Link wn-851n PCI WLAN card, and the problem is that ubuntu can search for the network, but I can't join into the network after typing the password. I'm sure that it is correct as m Windows notebook is also using that network.
Taking a look in dmesg, and it start to loop this message after I joined the network.
I have "D-Link DWA-125 Wireless 150 USB Adapter". I can use this wireless adapter on my laptop, i can use it on my desktop as well but only when windows is running, im a newbie to fedora, today is my 2nd day and 3rd night, so pretty exited about it. i have installed fedora 13 on a different hard-disk on my desktop. when the computer is booting, there is an orange light on the adapter glowing, it turns off when the computer reaches the fedora loading screen. If i see fedora's Network Configuration window under the hardware's tab i see the "D-Link DWA-125 Wireless 150 USB Adapter" listed along with my lan card. Now if i go towards the clock on the top right to get the wireless connection working, it shows wireless network disconnected. I have tried creating wireless connection manually by inserting the SSID, macadress, BSSID, ,WPA passkey etc, but still doesnt works. when i try connecting using hidden wireless connection, i receive window for inserting keyring password again and again, stating that the login password does not match. but during all this time, i still havent seen the orange light glowing activity on the external usb adapter. If i restart the computer in windows the adapter/wireless connection works. also have checked the Network service, it seems that the service is up and running. i really require some assisstance on this,
i have noticed this, that if i go under network configuration. the first tab over there, inside devices i cant see my D-Link adapter, but if i switch onto the hardware tab it shows my lan card as well as my D-Link adapter. so does it means that the driver is missing? or any service which is disabled, however at this point of time i can get only using wired connection. please assist me. with this issue, im also downloading the 500 complete update as well for fedora, hoping that it may make it work.
I've a damn TP-LINK WG422G UBS Adapter that i love i installed latest compat-wireless driver package and used latest ar9271 firmware after that it was worked properly. There is no problem when surfing the net, the problem is occurring usually download something via torrent sometimes form websites. I'm starting to download and then usb adapter suddenly freeze. If i remove and plug in the usb adapter it is working again.
how to install D-link dwm-152 (3G/HSDPA) usb adapter on Lucid Lynx?
i've run lsusb and the result are:
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 0a5c:2162 Broadcom Corp. Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Have tried methods from every thread I could find for past 10 hrs. Have tried installing rt3070sta etc.Monitored message log; appears that the driver isn't recognized, though the USB port sees that something is plugged in (when I plug in the adapter, and unplug it).All of the threads miss something; I can't get a wireless port listed under ifconfig no matter what I try. Seems that every method leaves out something (I guess because everyone's box is different in some way). Network manager doesn't help much. Downloaded Wicd, which does even less.I guess I could try ndiswrapper, but I'm scared away by the hundreds of pages I see on going that route; I'm almost certain it wouldn't work (1000 possible points of failure).Does anyone have a strategy to recommend?AM64 box, newly installed Edubuntu 10.04, ran update manager.
I'm having some issues getting connected with a TP-Link TL-Wn727N wireless USB adapter. I have no way to connect hard wired with the computer, but I have another working notebook to possibly download files. However, the second notebook is a Mac, so most of the posts I've found are not filling in all of the answers. Also forgot to note, I am using Ubuntu 10.10. I followed along with this and managed to get the card to find the wireless connection. However, the connection would never connect. After entering the security password the wireless icon would do it's thing and then pop up asking to ok the password again. I double, triple checked the password and it is correct. I found elsewhere that I should probably install wicd. This is where I've run into problems with finding the way to get files that I can download on the Mac and then installed on the Ubuntu computer. I managed to find this forum thread and downloaded this file I transferred the file from the Mac to the Ubuntu with a flash drive and tried to install. First the install said that Network Manager needed to be removed, so I removed it. Next it says "Dependency is not satisfiable: python-urwid." I'm not sure how to go about getting this dependency as it is not showing up in the package manager.
i just installed Ubuntu 11.04 64bit on my desktop. i have a TP Link TL-WN321G (Ver 4.0) wireless usb adapter to connect to my wireless network (i used to use it with Windows XP).As expected (i'd read up a bit before installing Ubuntu), the adapter was autodetected - i could see my wireless network listed in the networks list dropdown, and lsusb showed it too.lsusb identifies "Bus 002 Device 002: ID 148f:2070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2070 Wireless Adapter"But i cannot connect to the network. When i select my network, it keeps trying to connect, but never succeeds in connecting.
i tried going through the forums for possible solutions, but most of them deal with how to get it working when the adapter is not detected, or when networks are not shown. Or they are for older Ubuntu versions.i use the same wireless network on my laptop (Ubuntu 9.04), and it has a WPA & WPA2 Personal security, with a password, which i've configured in the desktop as well.
I have tried to install tp link tf3200 network adapter without success . the os is 8.04 hardy loading drivers is new to me. the driver is sundance (i think) and the output from the make command is shown below.
pag@paghomelinux:~$ cd /media/cdrom0/TF-3200/LinuxDriver pag@paghomelinux:/media/cdrom0/TF-3200/LinuxDriver$ sudo make all sudo: unable to resolve host paghomelinux
I have a desktop that has a d-link DWL-520 wireless card, which was working under Windoze. Today I installed Centos 5.4 on the system , which went cleanly. I then used Network Configuration to set up the wireless card. I specified to use DHCP, set the SSID and authentication password. When I tried to activate the card I get these error messages
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported. Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A): SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Determining IP information for wlan0.
The hardware manager seems to have correctly identified the card and chipset, (Intersil Prism 2.5) and installed driver hostap_pci which came with the distro. This web site seems to suggest that this is the correct driver: [URL] searching forums I've found a few references to these errors, but they were from several years ago, and for different distros and cards. I did find a reference to using Network Manager to configure the card instead of Network Configuration. I started the NM service and configured a connection using it instead, but still no luck.
1) it cannot see any networks around 2) i cannot setup it in master mode to use my PC as a router
As far as i can see, the device is recognized and the correct driver (rt73usb) is loaded. I was able to connect to a laptop somehow (the laptop could see other networks and the adapter's PC-to-PC network). I'd like to make it work as a router, i.e. share my internet connection (eth0) via wlan0. Here is what i have:
Code: Ubuntu 10.04 Linux 2.6.32-22-generic #36-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 3 19:31:57 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux TP-Link TL-WN321G wifi usb adapter as seen as Bus 001 Device 006: ID 148f:2573 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2501USB Wireless Adapter $ iwconfig wlan0 wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:off/any [Code]....
I had my wired internet working ok, but now that's not working for god knows what reason (yes I'm new). I've got my D-Link DWL-G120 usb wireless adapter pluged in but it's not "working". In the Hardare section it shows all the information for it but it shows it as a unclassified device. At this point I'm thinking of buying a bridge and just reinstalling the OS (plus I want to get a bigger Hard drive as I've got it on a 7 GB drive right now).
my long awaited WUA-1340 D-Link wifi adapter has arrived, and...unfortunately won't work it didn't work "out of the box", so I tried the following (found on the aircrack website)Here's what I did....1. Edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and add blacklist rt73usb as a new line.2. RebootThen,
Code: wget http://homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_larbig/wlan/rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3.tar.bz2 tar -xjf rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3.tar.bz2
I have been running FC8 on this IBM T23 with a D-Link wireless adapter. Using MadWifi this has worked fine with Network Manager disabled. But now I have nuked that installation and replaced it with FC10. Network Manager is nice, and I would like to use it. And it kind-of works. Network Manager recognizes my router and all my neighbor's routers, but I can't connect.
I have a Thinkpad T400 notebook that dual boots windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.04. My wireless has worked both in windows and ubuntu for the past several months. However 2 days ago, the wireless in ubuntu stopped working. I think this may be a result of trying to set up a static eth0 connection between my laptop and an embedded board, but I dont see how messing with eth0 would stop the wlan from working.
Symptoms: When I left click on the network connections icon in the tray, all it lists under "Wireless networks" is "device not ready". Needless to say, there are no networks available to connect to. Also the wireless is working fine under windows.
I'm a new user of Ubuntu and I think I need some help but let me mention before that I got this up working on a Debian system.My current kernel version is $ uname -r 2.6.32-27-generic.The problem is that my wlan card is not working any more such that my system freezes every time I enable networking with the hardware switch on my laptop.Therefore I bought a USB - WLAN stick and try to get this working.
Network Manager has the option "enable wireless" greyed out if I disable the hardware switch.If I enable the hardware switch and remove the module of my wlan CARD before (modprobe -r iwl3945) it says "wireless disconnected" for all networks.
I have a desktop and laptop both running ubuntu 10.04. I have them going through a wireless router, the desktop is wired of coarse. I installed just about all the samba packages in synaptic that have the little ubuntu symbol next to them on both desktop and laptop except the Kde and document packages. I installed the two necessary packages to enable personal file sharing to work. But I can't seem to access files back and forth from these computers.
I have freshly installed RHEL 5.4 on a Dell Inspiron with WLAN adapter Broadcom 4318. The original driver bcm43xx did not work. So I installed ndiswrapper for using the windows driver.Now I can connect via DHCP, but when I try to assign a static IP address, it still uses the IP address provided by the router (AVM Fritzbox 7270). I always did ifdown/ifup and the static IP and everything else is present in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1. But ifconfig always shows the IP address assigned by the router. When I switch off the DHCP server of the router I can't connect to the network anymore. The LAN adapter Broadcom 4400 is working well with a static IP address.
I have found instructions but they are not working. I am new to Ubuntu and have only had a few classes that dealt with Fedora and CentOS. So I am rather new to Linux in general. The drivers say they are compatible with linux kernel 2.6 and later so I am going to assume they should work with ubuntu--am I correct in this assumption? If so, when one installs anything in ubuntu should one be set as the admin?
