Ubuntu Networking :: HP Pavilion Wireless Enable/Disable Button / "Wireless Disabled By Hardware Switch"?

May 11, 2011

I've had a host of problems since upgrading to 11.04 Natty Narwhal, so let's deal with these 1 at a time.

I've got a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G60 laptop. Next to the power button is a handy wireless on/off button. This has always worked well with previous editions (9.04,through 10.10). first press toggles the wireless off, second press toggles it on.

Not so in 11.04. The toggle off works great, first time. But, it will not toggle back on. Not after any number of tries, not after restarting, not after booting into other OS's (9.10 and Vista) re-enabling it there and then booting back into Narwhal. to further complicate the issue, this feature bypass the network manager, so toggling the wireless off by the switch leaves me showing no wireless adapter in the network manager. I also restarted, switched from Unity to a Gnome session, but the issue still persists.

As my only network options are wireless, this has become a substantial inconvenience.
----
EDIT: so the network util is actually saying "wireless disabled by hardware switch". Also noticed it I enable it in 9.10, reboot to 11.04 (where I inevitably fail to re-enable it), then reboot into 9.10, it will initially be disabled. The key difference is in 9.10 I have the ability to enable wifi using the hardware button. It seems that 11.04 is remembering that wireless is disabled between boots. Is there a place it might be storing this value? If so, I may be able simply to set the value as enabled, since toggling that silly button isn't working.
-----
EDIT 2:
found this thread:"Wireless disabled by hardware switch" bug? - Natty
seems to be a similar issue. I'll be following how that one develops, too.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Is Disabled By Hardware Switch?

May 21, 2011

i hate to start a new thread that is already discussed in many places. But after hours and hours of digging, i am thinking there might be a 5 minute solution. But only if i know that. I own a lenovo ideapad y450. my networking controllers are...

Quote:

Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN [Shiloh] Network Connection
Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM5784M Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10)

The problem is i cannot access wifi. The network manager says the wireless is disabled by hardware switch.

My hardware switch for wireless (on the laptop) is infact ON.

[Code]...

During natty installation (it was a fresh one) i had ticked for third party installations but had no internet running at that time. now the additional drivers under hardware in system settings shows nothing. just blank. NO MATTER WHAT I DID I HAVE COME TO THE FIRST STEP AGAIN. MY WIRELESS IS DISABLED BY HARDWARE SWITCH. where is this switch & how do i switch it on (if thatz so easy.) but all the solutions given in other thread were specific to some system or condition and mine somehow did not match.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Is Disabled By Hardware Switch

Jun 10, 2011

Just installed ubuntu 11.04. It told me a driver was missing and installed the Broadcom STA driver. I believe it went on line after that, but I restarted and its not going back online.

Also according to 'rfkill list all' my wifi seems to be hard blocked.

EDIT: also iwconfig outputs this:

Code:
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:off/any

Ubuntu Networking :: HP G60 Laptop Wireless Disabled By Hardware Switch?

Jul 16, 2011

I'm in the process of setting up my parents' HP G60-630US laptop with Ubuntu 11.04 Natty. Installation went fine, but now I am trying to get the wireless set up and am encountering an annoying problem: The wireless drop down menu will not allow me to enable wireless because "wireless is disabled by hardware switch". When I try to turn on the wireless via the glowing orange wireless button above the keyboard nothing seems to happen.

When I enter rfkill list in terminal, it returns the following:

0: phy1: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: yes
1: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes

[Code]...

I'm not really sure what this output means. I wasn't able to find any threads the addressed this issue specifically. If there is a quick and easy solution to this issue, or if this is a known problem with no solution, I'd like to know either way.

p.s. if it helps, lspci -v lists the wireless card as: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)

Ubuntu :: Suspend Button (fn+f5) On Hp Pavilion Dv2000 Laptop Not Functioning

Apr 20, 2011

I have a problem with the suspend button (fn+f5) on my hp pavilion dv2000 laptop. It is working but only after an intervention. So, every I boot up my system the short-cut/button is not functioning. In order to make it work I have to open the Power Management Preferences and close them. I don't even need to change anything there. Now the button will be working just fine until the next restart. It's pretty annoying to visit the Power Management after each restart, isn't it. Any ideas how could I fix this?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Working - "wireless Is Disabled By Hardware Switch"

Jun 23, 2011

Just upgraded to the newest version of Ubuntu(unity), and my wireless isn't working. I have the 14e4:4315 Wireless Card so I followed this posts [URL].... And still have no wifi, when I click the icon in the menu bar it says under "Wireless Networks": "wireless is disabled by hardware switch", which ins't true because on my Vostro 1520, there is only one switch and it is in the on position. I've tried 3 versions of ubuntu and none of them work with wifi getting tired of it.

Ubuntu Networking :: HP DV2000 Wireless Wont Budge?

Apr 13, 2010

I finally decided to make the final move into Ubuntu (from XP) and i seem to be having a problem with my wireless. I remember getting it to work on this same PC under Hardy Heron but now I'm stuck. I installed the OS as a dual boot with XP so i could move files back and forth and such. When i click on the network icon i see "Wireless network - Disconnected" also this laptop does not have a regular LAN adapter. If i do an LSpci i see the device Broadcom bcm4311 listed. I see the network disabled on lshw I followed this guides to try to make thinks work and didnt achieve a thing![URL]... P.S. I have the feeling that the issue is related to a button on the side of the computer that enables/disables the wifi. Under ubuntu said button does not work and the network appears to be disabled in spite of device being listed and drivers being present. any tips? there are no hot keys marked in the keyboard that would enable wifi)

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10 - Wireless (grrr) - Wifi Switch DISABLED

Dec 22, 2010

I decided to wing it and upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10 once I developed odd wireless issues (grrr) where I could only get on wireless if I booted up Ubuntu with my wifi switch DISABLED and then right away enabled it once I was logged in. The funny part is, it distinctly said 10.10 available in update manager. I get it done, power up, System - About Ubuntu - 11.04.

Ubuntu Networking :: Pavilion Dv6 Wireless - Can't Find Local Wireless Networks

Jun 11, 2011

For some reason, ubuntu cannot find local wireless networks. In fact, the Broadcom wireless card Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g/n seems to be incompatible with ubuntu. I've tried numerous 'solutions' on the Internet, but none of them seem to work on my computer. Tutorials I've visited have recommended downloading the b43 drivers from the Synaptic package manager and also the bcmwl-kernal-source package. Nevertheless, the wireless never turns on and Additional Drivers never shows anything at all. After several exasperating hours of trying to get my wireless running I've decided to turn to the forum for help. I'm sure there's probably more information I should supply, but I'm honestly not sure what that would be.

Ubuntu Networking :: Hp Pavilion Ze4900 Can't See Wireless Card With 9.10

Jul 3, 2010

I just installed Ubunto 9.10 on my HP Pavilion ZE9400 laptop (more specifically a ze4930us) that was formerly running Windoze XP. Right now, I'm using my Win 7 desktop machine. The problem with the laptop is that Linux can't connect to my wireless network. It seems that it can't see the wireless card. When I tap the button on the laptop case, a little blue light normally switches on and off to indicate whether the wireless card is enabled or not, but that light doesn't come on. I suppose I need a HP/Ubuntu driver. Any advice, links, etc?

BTW, I also went to the HP site to download a driver, but Linux isn't one of the OSs that they support and have no drivers.

Ubuntu Networking :: Hp Pavilion Dm4-1173cl Wireless Connection Is Not Working?

Jan 22, 2011

I have just installed Maverick meekat on my new laptop with Wubi, and I have been trying to setup my wireless connection, but i couldnt. The first thing I tried was going to System>Prefrences>network connections, and clicking on the wireless tab. I tried to add a network think manyally, and I miserably failed.

here is the information I have of my laptop as of now after doing the lspci command in the terminal:

Network controller: Brodcom Corporation Device 4727
USB Controller: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset USB2 Enhanced Host Controller Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.

Also I have read somethings about ndis or using the windows driver and things of that sort. Whenever I am using windows, my wireless connection is working perfectly. So I dont know if there is a specific way to activate my drivers, or if my computer is just not capable of having wireless connection on Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Repeatedly Stops Working On HP Pavilion/Intel 4965AG/Karmic

Feb 9, 2010

My wireless LAN connection on this machine occasionally stops working. The network traffic bar shows periodic very small transmissions but the failure of all network dependent applications (Firefox, package manager, etc.) indicates to me that the machine is no longer talking to the net. I can fix it by reselecting my home network in nm-applet from the drop-down list. This causes the machine to disconect, reconnect and all is well for some random period of time thereafter. Here's some data:I'm running an HP Pavillion laptop.

Code:

~$ lspci | grep Wireless
02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection (rev 61)

Code:

~$ lsmod | grep iwl
iwlagn 124768 0
iwlcore 134820 1 iwlagn
mac80211 243496 2 iwlagn,iwlcore

[code]....

I don't know if this is related or not, but a couple of months ago I unsuccessfully attempted to share a hotel's wired Internet connection over my wireless card. I may have hosed some settings or it could be unrelated.The "unknown interface" portion of the restart attempt is interesting but I don't know enough to fix it.

I cannot seem to enable my wireless connection in 9.10. I know that the connection WAS WORKING maybe a month or so ago. However, 99% of the time I am wired.I am using a BCM4312 It shows up in lspci The drivers are loaded (wl, lib80211 and lib80211_crypt_tkip) If I look at System->Administration->Hardware Drivers the Broadcom STA driver is active. dmesg says that the interface is eth1 but then moves it to eth2 If I click on the network icon in the panel I have options for connecting to eth0 (wired lan which works fine) but under "Wireless Networks" it says "Wireless is disabled" in gray.

Ubuntu Networking :: Source Of Disabled Wireless?

Jun 28, 2010

My wireless was working fine for about a year using 9.10 until I installed an update about May 28 2010. After that my HP laptop did not recognize any wireless routers including my Netgear. In early June I upgraded to 10.04. My HP laptop has: product: AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter vendor: Atheros Communications Inc. Dose the following apply when looking for the source of my disabled wireless found at: [URL]

Setting wireless regulatory domain via module option no longer supported. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS enables the CRDA wireless regulatory framework for controlling which wireless channels are usable and visible in a particular location. If you previously had to use the module option similar to that below in /etc/modprobe.d/options.conf to allow access to certain channels in your locality then you may find that wireless will not function at all: options cfg80211 ieee80211_regdom=EU You should remove this kernel module option on upgrade from releases earlier than Ubuntu 9.04 and use the iw*reg command instead. (This change was made in Ubuntu 9.04.) Here are the results for the Code sudo lshw -C network

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Internet Is Disabled?

I realize this seems like a repeat question (and it probably is). I have been searching for a solution to my issue on the forums/web for a few hours to no avail. I have a Compaq f700 with Vista. I am sick of Vista. I installed Ubuntu today. Looking forward to using it more. However I am having problems with the internet.

My wireless internet is on the on setting, however, the light will not switch from orange to green (if I load Vista instead, the light changes). Broadcom BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311], It says my wireless is disabled. I can not figure out how to enable it.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Disabled - How To Re-enable

Aug 22, 2010

We're on vacation here with free wifi and I brought two laptops. The older of the two laptops running Ubuntu 10.04 and a Broadcom wireless chip suddenly wouldn't work this morning. I checked and it says wireless disabled, however wireless is grayed out when I right click on network manager. I have -no- idea what to do. I've never seen wireless just die like that. I popped open the cover but the wireless card is fine. I re-seated it, booted back up, still no sign of it.

What can I do?
