Ubuntu Networking :: HP G62x Laptop - Ralink 5390 Wifi Card Does Not Work?
Apr 29, 2011
I recently bought a HP g62x laptop for myself. It sports a decent Core i3 processor, 4 gigs of RAM and a 500GB HDD. It also came with Wireless-N, a real bonus because I am using a Wireless-N router. The chipset is a Ralink 5390. It came preinstalled with Windows 7, and everything works fine in there (obviously).
I then proceeded to install Ubuntu 10.10 x64 a few days ago (this is before Natty came out) and everything worked . . . except WLAN. So I plugged in via Ethernet and went looking and found that I clearly wasn't the first to discover this issue. I found a guide here that I followed to download the Ralink Linux driver (which is stated to support my chipset), configure, compile, and install. Everything went perfectly, I restarted; lo and behold, I have a list of access points. I went to connect to mine, entered the password, and now the animated "WiFi wave" logo keeps going indefinitely until you click it, and it freezes for a few minutes. It will unfreeze if you let it sit but clicking it causes the same freeze again.
I couldn't really care less about a WiFi icon freezing, but a.) it freezes everything else in the system up, not just the icon, and b.) it never actually completes the WiFi connection. I really, really don't want to be forced to use Windows because of a crappy WiFi driver!
Since Natty came out I installed that and I can't even compile the driver without fatal errors, so I reverted to 10.10 and everything is the same as it was before. Note that this is a clean Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop Edition 64-bit install, nothing updated/modified/changed besides (attempting) to install this driver.
I just purchased a RALINK WIRELESS G PCMCIA WIFI CARD VISTA/LINUX (UBUNTU). It is supposed to be UBUNTU plug and play out of the box with no driver downloads needed.
I installed it but could not find a way to search the active Wi-Fi networks available like on my Actiontec card on windows xp. The wireless router/ethernet I have is an Actiontec setup for Qwest-DSL and Actiontec is the name of the wireless network.
Strangely I tried to choose setup a "new network" and entered Actiontec as the network name and it found the network and said it was connected to it. However the internet still is not working?
I have an HP DV6 3143se which has a Ralink 3090 wifi card in it.the only thing that doesn't work at the moment is the Wifi. I tried installing the Linux backports module, but the trouble is that sometimes, my home wifi network is shown on the list of available networks and most often, it's not. when the network does show up, and i click on it and enter my WPA2 password, it takes ages to handshake and then it tells me that my password is wrong. the same password works in windows 7 so something's not working.
when i try to disable and re enable wireless network on the network manager applet, i get a Wireless device not ready or Network manager not running message.
I been having trouble getting my rt2070 wireless usb card to work on my desktop. I am using Ubuntu 10.10.
Pastebin of dmesg: [URL]
Code: Representative portion in case pastebin wipes this entry: [ 234.984025] hub 1-0:1.0: Cannot enable port 8. Maybe the USB cable is bad? [ 234.984041] hub 1-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 8
I have an emachines D620 laptop running Ubuntu 10.10 with a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01). I havent done anything with it and cant seem to get it to work. I know this because when I had visto on it the card worked, but know it says that its firmware is not enabled and ive tried installing the drivers using the Additional Drivers under Administration. I would like it to be working so I can use my laptop's internet.
I am using a Fujitsu Amilo pi3560 with a Realtek rtl8172 wireless card, and running the latest driver (rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0014.0115.2010). The OS is Ubuntu 9.10. Everything runs perfectly - when my laptop is connected with the power cord. But when I go battery the wireless disconnects after a few minutes. It then asks for the wpa password, searches for the router, asks again, and so on indefinitely, until I reboot and it all replays once more.
I have new emachine 1401 and I can't get it to connect to wireless. It does detect networks but when connecting keeps asking for password over and over and never connects. I don't have wired connection at all and the wifi router is not managed by me, so I'm retyping output through my windows xp samsung netbook which works over the same wireless network...
I have tries some other solutions I found around here (install bcmwl-kernel-source, rt3090-dkms_220.127.116.11, blacklist rt2800pci...) so it's not original configuration but behaves exactly the same.
After installing Lucid, I noticed that my Ralink RT2860 card would not connect to my home network using WPA2 despite the network being visible and of good strength. So I followed the guide at [url] in order to install the newest Ralink drivers.
After installation, same issue. That is, the card will connect to my a/b/g/n network if I leave it unprotected, but it will not connect to the same network if switch it to WPA2. After being given the passphrase, the wireless icon on the indicator applet shows that it is trying to connect, but after awhile it fails. Does anyone know why the built-in driver and also the official Ralink driver are no good for WPA2 in Ubuntu 10.4 for my RT2860 card?
I use Ubuntu 9.04 and try to get a Sweex LW053 USB wireless card (Ralink RT73/RT2500 chipset) to work. According to the Wiki list in the sticky thread, this one should work "out of the box" since 8.04.
lsusb delivers Bus 002 Device 002: ID 148f:2573 Ralink Technology Corp. RT2501USB Wireless Adapter and there is also some wlan0 entry that doesn't look too dodgy when typing ifconfig. From this I get that my laptop recognizes the card. I also typed in some numbers such as SSID and DNS server address in Preferences>Network Connections where asked (although the information that I had wasn't 100% what was asked for so I tried to guess what needs to be filled in which fields). However, I don't get an internet connection (Firefox can't find server...)
I'm having trouble installing my RaLink RT2561/RT61 wireless card. It seems that this driver causes problems for all ubuntu users, and I've tried a couple of work arounds, none of which work for me.
Firstly I downloaded the most recent driver from here: [URL]...RT2501PCI/mPCI/CB(RT61:RT2561/RT2561S/RT2661) is the driver I downloaded. Next I performed the following steps: Code: robinsjp@home-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential gcc Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree
I have strange behaviour on my portable computer Asus UX30. I'm using latest Ubuntu 10.10 release. The main problem, and the most annoying, is a system freeze on shutdown, suspend, hibernate or even restart. For a week I'm trying to find a solution on the web, but no result. From what I noticed, computer freezes when a wireless card is turned off or on. Here are some basic info from wireless card:
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 (32-bit) on a MSI A5000 which appears to have a RaLink RT3090 wireless card. So far everything seems to work except the Wireless card.
The problem is that no option for wireless appears in the network manager, it only shows the options for wired connection. This computer does have a button on the front to enable/disable wireless and I have confirmed that is is on, as there is a green indicator light showing this.
Can anyone tell me the status of the RaLink RT3090 with Ubuntu 10.04? I have looked through various posts here about getting this card working with earlier versions of the OS, where complicated procedures with mixed and apparently intermittent results are described. Do these measures also need to be followed with 10.04?
I have attempted several older solutions found in assorted threads here and I am still unable to get the card to even so much as show up in the network manager. The proceedure which seemed the most promising is here [URL]
I'm a brand new user of Debian, and I just bought a (too much?) new laptop, the HP 430 G2. It seems to work great for almost everything, except that I don't have any wifi available.
I tried so many different things (without any success) that it would be hard to resume. But for now, all I have is a new installation (to avoid parasite installations of weird things), and a kernel updated to 3.16. I don't know if it's useful though...
The first element I notice is that I don't have the line with "Kernel driver in use...". Which seems to indicate that there's a problem with the kernel module (is that right?). But I don't know how to fix it...
The other thing that puzzles me with these last two commands is that according to this page, my wifi card is a Broadcom BCM43142. But it's not the result I get with the lspci command.
Anyway, I'm really lost, I don't know what to do, what to check, what to install. I don't want to go by random, testing all the different solutions I see on the web blindely. This is the reason why I ask it here.
I've ubuntu 10.04 and I can't connect to router wi-fi with my new wireless adaptor usb (ralink 2870). I've tried various guides but nothing. The adaptor work fine with Windows and other linux distributions.
get WIFI working on my Dell D600 with Ubuntu 11.04 freshly installed. I some limited sucched following the this post t=1621331 this got the card working but it was very very slow over 70% packet loss to the WIFIrouter. 1.

I am dual booting with windows xp on a dell computer I recently acquired. I am running Ubuntu 10.10. The computer didn't have a wireless connection so I installed a wireless pci adapter from a company called ZONET. I installed it perfectly on windows xp, however, I cannot install the driver and the "Ralink Wireless LAN" on Ubuntu. I inserted the cd, and opened the setup.exe file with Wine Windows Program Loader (I have installed Wine 1.3 by following the instructions on http://www.winehq.org/download/deb and clicking on the link that says "click here".
I am currently temporarily connected to the internet by borrowing my main computers ethernet cable). I followed the instructions on the InstallShield Wizard only to have two windows pop up saying there is an error (see attached image).
I have having trouble getting the WiFi to work on my Gateway laptop model M6752. It has the Marvell Technologies Ethernet card. I am attaching the output of various commands like lpsci - nn, ndiswrapper -l etc. I have followed the instructions from one of the threads and got the driver installed. It even says that the device is present. I don't know why it is not connecting.Also, Under System->Administration->Network Tools, it is showing on Local Loopback and wired eth0 interface. The wireless interface is not showing up there.
I am running (K)Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 64bit on a Dell Latitude E6400, WiFi Card Intel 5100. Never had any problems with networking. Up to about 2 weeks ago. I do realize there have been quite a few posts with this network adaptor, but non really described the problem I have here.
What happens is that suddenly the WiFi LED on the computer stops blinking, the WiFi connection gets disrupted, and the device is not recognized anymore when checking ifconfig. Only cold restarting the machine helps then... it will work for a while (between 1 and 20 minutes) and then crash again.
On Windows 7 the card works perfectly fine. With Ubuntu 11.04 in Live CD mode I have the same effects (connection crashes after a while). Also tried booting an older kernel, no success.

I am trying to install Realtek RTL8192E wireless drivers for Toshiba satellite 510 in Fedora 14 KDE SPIN. I have been searching it for long time. I am not getting any tutorials or any methids to get this sorted.
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 a a Dell D610 that is running a broadcom BMC943 internal wifi adapter. I've tried installing the wifi drivers off of Dell's website using the ndisgtk gui setup. It appears that whenever I setup the driver the OS can't apply it. It states that the wifi adapter is not on or installed. Here is what I get when I run iwconfig and lspci -n.
iwconfig: lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. lspci -n: 00:00.0 0600: 8086:2590 (rev 03) 00:02.0 0300: 8086:2592 (rev 03)
I've also edited the blacklist.conf file as well with no luck. I've spent 2 days trying to figure this out with no luck at all.
i have an Acer aspire 4920 laptop with opensuse11.3 installed and wifi card has identified home wifi, but for some reason when i enter the wpa-psk key it doesnt connect.i have been at this problem for several days and scanning the net for answers, without joy.i dont know about the command or terminal line, i have tried to type in commands but i get no joy.
I recently installed Suse 11.4 on my Dell Latitude 2110 netbook using the KDE live distribution, and, after that, the Broadcom wireless ceased to work. To enable the wireless connection, I have to press Fn + F6. If I do it now, the wireless led indicator turns on for a couple of seconds, then turns off again. Moreover, the option to enable the wireless connection in the network manager is greyed out

I just tested a HP DM4 in a computer store with a Mint DVD live boot disc and the laptop worked well with one exception that gives me Sony shivers (going back a few years with serious incompatibility in certain wifi cards). The wifi card did not appear to work and with store alarms going off (nothing to do with my tweaking bios settings honest) I didn't have time to run any console commands to investigate the wifi card.
