Ubuntu Networking :: First Attempt To Connect To Wireless LAN Always Fails?
Jun 24, 2010
The nm-applet starts automatically as it should, and also tries to connect to the local, wireless LAN, but always fails its first attempt. If I click the icon and ask nm-applet to connect again, it always succeeds.
The server, running the wireless LAN, never sees the first attempt to connect, so no wonder this attempt fails. But it would be nice to make it succeed!
in linux world and have recently downloaded and installed ubuntu desktop 10.10i cannot connect to both wired and wireless ethernet on my laptopit tries to connect but fails in 30 seconds , it says"disconnected" while i am able to connect to the same in windows i have broadcom 4315 and i have tried both fwcutter and ndiswrapper but the problem persiststhe device id is 14e4:4315
Dell mini 10 with ubuntu 10.04/windows xp, connecting to linksys wrt54g. Connected when I was using 9.10, has worked for several months since 10.04 was installed. Still works if I boot XP, but, when booting Ubuntu, router won't accept the passkey which I obtained from my wired computer. I've glanced through a bunch of posts and see several which are close, but no solution. Only cause that I can think of might be a shut down while connected. I say that because it was working and I had no need to change settings.
I have an Atheros AR242x card. It can see my wireless network (WPA2). When i attempt to connect to the network it asks for the WPA2 passphrase. After entering the password it begins connecting but hangs up for about 3 minutes before saying wireless disconnected. The wireless worked for one day on a fresh install (Ubuntu 10.04)and then started doing this.
I'm trying to find out why the wireless access point at work most of the time won't let me connect to the network. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 on a DELL vostro 1720. The router model is D-LINK DIR-655. lspci gives me: Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01), and I'm using Broardcom STA drivers.
If I try like 10-20 times to connect I will often finally get connected and once connected everything works fine for the rest of the day. The only router I'm having this problem with is this one. In the log below, the last lines is a connectionattempt that succeeded and all the lines above those are several attempts that failed. It seemes like there is some kind of timeout issue but I'm not sure what and how to fix it.
The syslog for the connection attempts are (I have marked out MAC adesses and public ips with *):
Dell Inspiron 640m laptop, running 10.04. It previously connected via wifi & now fails to connect, although the wireless indicator shows a connection. Connection via ethernet works. Below there's some information that looked like might it be useful to diagnose the problem based on other posts in this forum.
I have a new Acer Aspire One, model D250-1958. It uses the Atheros AR928X. I've tried Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 and Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04, as well as the conventional Ubuntu. Everything works beautifully, except no wireless. The netbook picks up the signal, but when I provide the Key it fails to connect, and eventually prompts me for the key again.
I've tried to research this on my own, but haven't found a solution. In particular, the solution reported by narnie for his Acer Aspire One D250-1584, <HERE>, didn't work for me.
I'd really like to get this working. The netbook will be much less useful if it can't make use of our wireless router.
I'm having an issue with a BIND server. After a restart, (or randomly, I assume whenever a cache expires,) when I try to resolve any domain I get a "Host yahoo.com not found: 2(SERVFAIL)" Eventually it starts working and works fine till the cache expires again;
I'm running F12 and Package Updater has been telling me to update Thunderbird for two days but fails on every attempt. I tried to go the yum route today with yum remove thunderbird yum install thunderbird
And I get this error: Error: Package: thunderbird-3.0.10-1.fc12.i686 (updates) Requires: nss >= 3.12.8 Installed: nss-3.12.7-6.fc12.i686 (@updates) nss = 3.12.7-6.fc12 Available: nss-3.12.4-14.fc12.i686 (fedora) nss = 3.12.4-14.fc12
Is there any way I can update nss such that Thunderbird will have access to the correct version or is this something that is in process for the repository?
I am dual-booting 11.04 alongside windows 7. I shrunk my w7 partition, and would like to extend my ubuntu partition to fill up the remaining space. When I boot from GParted live cd, and attempt to 'move/resize' my ubuntu partition, it simply fails. It doesn't really give an error message either, simply 'failed to move/resize [partition name]'
Since my update to OpenSuse 11.2 knetworkmanager refuses to connect to WEP enabled networks (worked fine with knetworkmanager 11.1). I am sure that I use the correct password and I tried on 3 different networks. The manager is connecting to open networks and WAP protected networks without problems. I saw on other forums that there were similar problems with previous versions of networkmanager. But I could not find a solution for my problem.
I am attempting to install debian for the first time on my pc that has no cdrom drive. I downloaded the Jessie CD image and wrote it to a 4GB stick, it didnt work. Then tried the netinstall image but face the same issue.
To write the usb stick I used unetbooting first, then tried win32diskimager and finally tried DD while stick was not mounted
I'm pretty new to Linux, but have had a bit of functional tutoring. i'm triple booting my old Dimension 8400. Have been running with Jackalope and XP for some time now and wanted to install Lynx and get a good handle on it before i completely wipe my other machine (Win7/Jackalope) and install it there.
Installed Lynx from a USB stick and all seems well, it recognises the UBS wireless and all available connections but just sits and spins on the password login and never connects...hmmm. I have tried all possible combinations of rebooting with the USB connected/disconnected/connecting after... to no avail.
The wireless seems to "work out of the box" just as seamlessly as it did for Jackalope, all the steps are similar, it just never connects.
Dell Studio 1735 w/BCM4312 WEP fails to connect even though I'm using the 10 character HEX key. It connects fine when there's no security on my Linksys WRT310N router. Ubuntu, Windows 7, my Samsung TV and TiVo all connect fine with the 10 character HEX key, but with opensuse 11.4 I can't connect.
My wireless (Toshiba laptop, 10.04 64 bit) is just hanging when trying to connect. It was working fine but now nothing. My Wireless antennae is on and my other laptop can connect with no problems. I have restarted the router and the laptop twice.
My Realtek RTL8187 Wifi fail to connect using WPA security. The authentication window shows up repeatedly every time I try to connect. Please note the password is correct. I searched and haven't found a conclusive solutions as of yet.
Has anyone else experienced a failure to connect to a mobile network. I have root access wireless tether on my Droid X and I can't seem to connect to it. It times out. My buddies windows box can, and his Iphone will as well. I can see the network just fine, just no connection. Tried changing frequencies as well. And restarting both the phone and laptop.
I have recently installed ubuntu 11.04 on my asus eeepc1005hab. And I've had problems with the wifi. I can connect via ethernet, but the wireless won't connect. I can see the connection, but my wifi never connects. I've tried many things but it still won't work.
I just upgraded to natty last night, and everything is working fine except for the network manager. I can enable and configure the wireless card via bash, but the network manager widget will not manage the wireless card.
When I first boot up, the "Enable wireless" check box is greyed out. After I enable the card via the terminal, the "Enable wireless" check box becomes ungreyed, but every time I click it, it instantly unchecks itself. I feel like Currly from the Three Stoogies. Check, uncheck, Check, uncheck.. "Slaps face repeatedly."
A friend called me today and he explained to me that after his ubuntu install he was unable to connect to a wired Ethernet network. He says it trys to connect using ETH0 and then seemingly fails and disconnects. I have him run a if config and send me a pic. The very odd thing about it is He had a lot 5-8 INET6 address? The laptops is Acer extensa 4420
Ubuntu 9.10 comes with rt2870, the driver for my Zonet ZEW2545, and I have had to blacklist rt2800usb in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf in order for rt2870 to work. My network adapter is able to attempt to connect to my router, but after 10-40 seconds it tells me I am disconnected again. This adapter works fine on windows.
Those are my authentication capabilities, obviously. I am using a WEP encryption for my wireless router and according to this, it will not allow me to connect. Is there anyway to allow that? The wireless card works just fine in Windows, even on the same network encryption type. Using a Intel Wireless/Pro 4965 ag. Note* this is my mother's router and whatnot. She won't change it the encryption type.
The problem with my wireless network. I have Dell DV6 Pavilion 2115 eg laptop and i installed Ubuntu 11.4 and internet and wireless worked, until i reboted my system it has disapear. I cant no longer to connect to a wireless network. It dont shows me any wireless network. My wireless card is Atheros AR 9285 802.11b/g/n Wifi Adapter
I installed a Tenda W322P wireless card in my dual-boot PC running both Windows XP and Ubuntu 11.04. The card worked straight out of the box on XP, but does not function correctly under Ubuntu. My apologies for any missing/irrelevant information, I am having to post this from the Windows boot so the Ubuntu settings are not directly available at the same time as internet access.I followed the process detailed here htURL...to install and configure the driver (I believe from reading other sites that this card is the Ralink RT3062 chipset), blacklisted the original RT2860 driver that was in use (couldn't even get the card to scan for wireless networks with the default driver) and restarted the interface.
Since then, sudo iwlist scan can find my wireless router but when I attempt to connect to it, it seems to enter a loop of requesting the WEP key then pausing for a while before re-requesting the key. I know I have the key value correct because it is copied and pasted from the same text file I used to copy and paste into the passkey field on the Windows boot. Attempting to connect to the router using Ubuntu also has the rather unfortunate side-effect of crashing the wireless router, killing off all other device connections until the router has been reset.
I have been trying to connect to my University's VPN Server and for some reason vpnc fails. I have configured the vpn settings the same way I did for the past two years. They worked properly on Fedora 12 and 13, but for some reason fails on Fedora 14.

In all but one place my HP Pavilion laptop running Fedora 14 will work flawlessly to use the Internet for e-mail, ftp, http, etc. In one network there is a wireless router - Cisco/Linksys E3000 - that allows every computer to use the Internet normally for wireless or for wired connections, every computer but mine. If I use Google's Chrome I can access the Internet. I can ping any web site too, but the moment I try to access anything with Firefox 3.6.17 there is a long delay and the standard error page appears. Weather or not I use a wired connection is apparently irrelevant.The Windows 7 computers in the same network are free of this curious problem. Strangely I have noted a problem like this, possibly the same problem, with another network at a coffee shop and they both share the misfortune of using AT&T, which is proud to not support Linux ... for customers of course (it's good enough for themselves I'm sure)
I upgraded from 9.x to 10.10. Under 9.x my wireless usb dongle worked correctly. After upgrade it does not. I checked the dongle on another machine and it works correctly. I inserted a usb memory stick and the system found it as a drive correctly. I assume from this that both the dongle and usb port are ok. The wireless device is a D-Link G122 A2 which is on the supported list (it ran out of the box on 9.x). The link light did not even come on. So I installed ndiswrapper and the windows D-Link driver (note that this was not needed in 9.x). Now the link light comes on and the wireless router is found but the unit will still not connect.
The log file entries on dongle insertion are as follows:
It appears that the problem is with wlan0 not being ready. If this is the case how do I make it ready?
