Ubuntu Networking :: Installed B43 Wireless Drivers Wlan Doesn't Show Up
Jul 3, 2010
I have a Broadcom B4312(I believe) wireless card and installed the drivers for it, but under the Wireless tab in Network Connections, it doesn't show "wlan0" or anything similar to "eth0"(which it shows under "Wired"). I ran iwconfig and this is what I got:
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:
I'm having problems getting the wifi to work on my toshiba satellite pro l40 (psl4be). My laptop has a wifi card built in but linux cant seem to be able to find it. I tryed following these instructions and i got this output:
Code: james@james-laptop:~$ lsusb Bus 007 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 Bus 006 Device 002: ID 0bda:8197 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. Bus 006 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
as you can see its telling me i have no wifi card, even though i am fully aware i do. ive tryed using ndiswrapper to install the windows drivers of the ethernet adaptor but my wifi still doesnt work, im guessing ethernet has nothing to do with wifi.I intend to convert from windows, however if i cant get the wifi to work i can only see linux at a major disadvantage as i use my wifi alot.
I deleted all APs in my Wireless Section of network manager. After that, the whole network manager icon disappeared. I added the icon back on the panel, but I don't think its the right one. It doesn't do the two green cicles thing when I connect my ethernet wire in. It also doesn't show any wireless AP when I left click on the icon. It doesn't even have an X mark on the bottom left of the icon when no network is detected
Ubuntu 9.04 with working wlan. I had to restart router & wap. It doesn't seem to ever retry to connect. I know my router & wap are good, I have wireless working on other laptop (running Puppy) I had to go into 'edit connections' in drop down and use 'wireless' tab then edit 'wireless connection 1' and hit 'apply' is there a better way to do this? also, no connections show up with command 'iwconfig' edit: with ifconfig, eth1 si showing data my ip address and packets sent & rcvd. I think I'll try do duplicate this event and use 'ifconfig eth1 down' and then up again to see if it reconnects.
After been convinced by an exchange student from Nashville I am hosting here in Germany I went into openSuse 11.2. I installed and got openSuse 11.2 to work. I must admit, that I was very impressed. It is more than 10 years that I tried a UNIX system and Linux was quite a cryptic thing. First some additional drivers had to be installed to get MP3 to play. However Internet access was possible with cable but the system failed in recognizing the WLAN.
Here is my system: HP Compaq nc4000 OpenSuse 11.2 (i586) KDE 4.3.1 "release 6" Wireless Network Atheros AR5212
I have looked through some posts but must admit, that I did not understand much of that. I Am willing to learn, however I do not see myself compiling some drivers. If you could tell me which URL could be used for dloading or installing via Yest, If more sophisticated solutions, than I will have to ask my student to do it for me, but he should learn German and learn more about German lifestile in German Bars.
I can get the command program to work, but not the desktop program to work. Windows Wireless Driver was working, but now every time I try to start it, it won't load, and will just be an empty window. This happened after I tried to installed a driver (which was the wrong one), and I restarted the computer. After this happened, I tried to reinstall the program, but to no avail.
The command program works, but I can't use the command lsusb, because it just pauses and doesn't do anything. Do I have to wait for it to kick in. I'm pretty sure that this is not it, because when I try the lspci, this works fine (but it's not the one I need). Please help, and don't make any stupid replies.
Using tips provided in the "Sticky" posts, I have identified my wireless device -- BCM4322 -- and installed the necessary firmware and drivers. The device appears in Network Manager until system reboot, at which time the "ssd" driver module is loaded instead. After each boot I must execute the following commands to remove ssd and load the Broadcom driver:
rmmod ssb modprobe lib80211 modprobe wl
The Broadcom README file provides directions to load the correct module automatically, but the commands appear to be incompatible with openSUSE 11.4. I'm happy to provide additional detail if needed
I just want a simple email notifier. I have started to use Ubuntu 10.10 and seem to have downloaded Gmailwatcher - it shows in Applications/Internet/Gmailwatcher. But it doesn't show as installed software in the Installed Software Centre. So, I cant uninstall it. I can't configure it? If I try to open Gmailwatcher I receive a popup asking me to open it from an icon above - but there's no icon there, I just want a simple email notifier - preferably one which I can add an audio alert.
i have just installed a Fritz Wlan USB stick on a practically fresh Maverick 32 Bit install with ndiswrapper.(i used this guide [in german] [URL]...so far so well, problem is, i cant enable the wireless. As far as i can see, this is no "on-button" issue. The build in wireless is either dead or never been there. It shows in the output below, but the "wifi-on/off" button doesnt do anything to the LED thats supposed to turn on and in an case... no connection. I think basically what my problem is that i can't figure out how to enable the wireless (its greyed out in the network-manager) i also installed the 32Bit version of the driver on a 32Bit Notebook. below is some output of what i found on other threads to try:
I have just installed openSuse 11.4 KDE 64-bit on a Dell M1330. When I click on my networking panel, it says WLAN interface is unavailable. I've followed the steps in the stickied post and found the WLAN hardware info, a screenshot of which is below:Uploaded with ImageShack.usNext it says to do this - you need to look at the logs, in particular the info in /var/log/boot.msg. To see this, you need YaST => Miscellaneous => System Logs and select boot.msg.In YaST there is no such option for system logs under miscellaneous, so I can't do that. The results of the sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan command produce the following:
root's password: lo Interface doesn't support scanning. eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.
On my HP TX2500 laptop, dual-booting Vista and 9.04, Ubuntu installation found the WLAN and it works fine.I installed VirtualBox with Vista as the host and 9.04 as the guest. Wired Ethernet works fine but it didn't seem to find my WLAN. What more do I need to do?
I've got wine installed and I've been using it for a while, but I just installed adobe flash but it doesn't show up in my wine menu. I know where I can find it in My Programs I just don't know where that is. Where is the virtual C: drive in wine located?
recently I risked a look to the Linux world and I'm happy so far, but now I've got a Problem, I'm unable to solve by myself. I installed Mint (Julia) on my old Laptop to test Linux. The Laptop has a very old PCMCIA WLAN Card with a Realtek rtl8180 chipset. Everything seems to run perfectly so far with one exception: the WLAN doesn't find any Network to connect although the card and the driver seem to be installed correctly.
Here some code from the terminal:
Code: lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS200/RS200M AGP Bridge [IGP 340M] (rev 02) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc PCI Bridge [IGP 340M] 00:02.0 USB Controller: ALi Corporation USB 1.1 Controller (rev 03) 00:03.0 Modem: ALi Corporation M5457 AC'97 Modem Controller
Why doesn't encrypted WLAN communication work for me? I've got an HP Probook 6555b with Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit. When I set my WLAN router to unencrypted I'm able to connect. But if I choose WPA-PSK-TKIP or WPA2-AES or WPA-PSK & WPA2-PSK I can't connect. Ubuntu prompts me to enter my encryption key. I enter it. It runs for a while and then prompts me again. The little icon at the top right of the screen next to the speaker symbol is where I can see it trying to connect.
I have installed Fedora 12 on my laptop.Installing my Broadcom BCM 4312 wireless drivers works just fine, but after a reboot I have to reinstall them. modprobe wl, modprobe wlan0 etc doesn't work either. I need to reinstall them every time I reboot.
I have a Dell Laptop which worked very well also with the wireless card. In fact the wireless card was never an issue and worked straight out of the box. However it has lost the ability to detect the wireless networks. I have plenty of networks in my area and my little netbook shows them nicely. So did my Dell laptop in the past. But now the Dell laptop shows no scan results at all although the card seems to be up and running (see terminal output below) I have to add that I had to compile a module for the WIRED network card which works excellent I always use and used a wired network and cannot say when the wireless card stopped to work PLUS I had a faulty harddisk which was replaced by Dell recently so there could be also a hardware fault since then because the laptop was opened by the service people. And yes the wireless is switched on in the BIOS If I create a wireless network with the laptop the netbook can see it, so the wireless card is broadcasting
I've installed Ubuntu Netbook 10.04 on my HP DV2000 laptop and now I want to get my wireless to work by installing the proprietary broadcom drivers (4311, I think). But my internet doesn't work yet obviously, so I need to download the drivers to my thumb drive on my desktop and install them on my non-networked laptop.My issue is that I don't know:a) Where to get the driversb) How to install them from a local drive
When I look at the boot.msg log I see nothing about a firmware failing to load. Does that mean I already have it?
When I try the /usr/sbin/iwconfig command I get: lo no wireless extensions eth0 no wireless extensions When I try the /usr/sbin/iwlist scan command I get: lo Interface doesn't support scanning. eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.
There's a page (ar9170 - Linux Wireless) where I can supposedly download the ar9170.fw firmware that supports this device. But when I try to download it it doesn't show up in the /lib/firmware directory and I don't know why.
The system sees the USB adapter, but it doesn't appear to be working. Do I need the firmware? And if so, how do I download it-
