Ubuntu Networking :: Installing Wireless PCI Card Driver For Internet Access?
Jun 1, 2010
I am not really that good with linux, yet, I have a smc 2602W v3 wireless pci card, and I want to install it on linux, so I could access the internet, but I haven't found any solutions yet. Btw latest ubuntu desktop version. Info about the card: [URL]
I am building a CarPC which I'd like to have wireless internet access on. I have Verizon phone service so if there is a Verizon air card (not wireless card, an air card so I can have constant access without having to search for hot spots) that would work with Fedora 10 I would be very happy. I don't really know where to start and I can't find too much on Google, so I'm just looking for what options are available.
Recently I've been having problems with the internet whilst using Ubuntu 10.10 (Dual booting with Windows Vista Home Premium x32). The problem is I simply can't use my internet (can't connect and the option doesn't show up). At first it said (using wireless internet by the way), firmware missing. After playing around for a bit, I managed to get a option to install my internet card driver (Broadcom).
As I try to install it says this:
Code: SystemError: Failed to lock /var/cache/apt/archives/lock This is really frustrating me as I need the internet on it.
I am very new to Linux and need to install a driver for my wireless card. I am trying to install the RT3070 v22.214.171.124 driver from Ralink. I am running Fedora 126.96.36.199-167.fc11.i686.PAE. I have read the thread in the Solutions section about this driver, but unfortunately this is somewhat above my levels of comprehension, and I don't really know where to start.
Here is the output.

I'm very new to Debian (and Linux in general), and am currently taking a Linux course at college... I'm trying to get Debian running on my MacBook Pro (late 2009 model) and it's been complicated but I've got the operating system installed on it... I'm just having a few problems, the biggest right now of which is my wireless card, which doesn't work. So, I found instructions on the Debian Wiki for getting the driver for it, but it's not compiled already and I have little knowledge of manually installing stuff through Linux...
What distro is the easiest for a new person to get started? I also need wireless internet access. I've tried to do this once before with linux (mandriva as I recall, I gave up)before and had problems installing the programs that would allow that. Also are there Linux versions that I could install on my pocket PC?
I have lenovo thinkpad, T61 with Intel 4965AGN wireless card. It is a N card, it works under N mode in windwos, but not in Ubuntu (10.10). I installed ndiswrapper and got the windows xp drivers for this card. the issue is that i got an error when installing the drivers and since then I cannot use wireless.
The error i got is: Code: Module could not be loaded. Error was: FATAL: Could not read '/lib/modules/2.6.35-24-generic/kernel/ubuntu/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko': No such file or director I unistalled the driver, but now under network connections no wireless connections appear, nothing. I cannot use wirless anymore.
Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition, hyper-v install Windows 2003 R2 for normal Internet use.hyper-v no Internet access after installing ubuntu10.10 64bit is the use of the legacy network adapter, whether or static MAC address and MAC address spoofing is not the Internet,ubuntu network card settings should be no problem.?
i would really like to know how to patch a wireless card driver so that i can start injection in aircrack for example let's say we have an "Atheros AR5007EG" do you know where to find the driver patch for ubuntu and how to patch it ?
I've been trying to make/compile the driver for a wireless card. The card is usb, it's titled Micronext MN-WD550M and seems to use the rtl8712 driver.Firstly, though I did this once two years ago I seem to have completely forgotten how to install a driver in ubuntu.
Secondly, I'm not sure I have the right driver anyway since in the notes in the readme it says it is for i386 (I run amd 64). The driver is here [URL] Thirdly, after clicking through various readmes and documentation without feeling any more intelligent, I then tried using ndiswrapper to install a windows driver and ubuntu would crash if the usb wireless card was plugged in. Blarg.I feel like this should be so simple I'm going to make a clean installation of ubuntu 10.10 shortly (for various unrelated reasons) so anything I messed up with ndiswrapper should be back to normal.
I recently installed the latest version of Ubuntu because I want to switch to Linux. The installation went well and now I want to connect to the Internet.However, it is necessary that I install the drivers for my wireless card, but I do not know how.I started reading the documentation, but I soon was dropped, I began.My wireless card: Texas Instruments - ACX 111.I said that I use a WEP key, I understood that was important in the documentation.I also want to say I have no wired network near my computer so I am forced to log into Wifi connection.
I have a Toshiba M400 tablet laptop. I installed SuSE 11.2 and have connection to the internet via internal wireless connection to modem zoomtown. I click on mozilla or konquorer but get a blank webpage. I've tried everything I can think of but have not been successful.
I am using ubuntu 9.10. Kernel version is 2.6.31-14-generic. I couldnt find driver for Atheros wireless card which shows in 'lspci' 0c:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)
Ubuntu 10.4 with wireless card TP-Link TL-WN321G the driver installed and it connect to the wireless network but no internet access. I checked everything about the wireless information and everything is fine nothing wrong and the ip address is fine, am new to ubuntu and I don't know how to uninstall or reinstall the driver so I bought another wireless adapter Xtech this one the ubuntu didn't recognize it and I have the cd it came with but the driver is like make file and configure and .a or .c I really want to use ubuntu but without an internet connection no use of it!
The post I saw regarding this card was back in 2007 and I followed the steps to finding WINE but can't locate it at all. Apparently I need this installed before trying to install the driver (which I already downloaded from lynsys' site).
I have a Netgear WG511GE PCMCIA card, and a driver from the original installation disk. I used an ndiswrapper-utils gui called ndisgtk to install the driver. I then do the following to verify an installation:
Unfortunately, when I put the PCMCIA card in, nothing happens. On Windows, a green light flashes even if the card is not connected to any network. At first I thought this might be a hardware issue, so I did #lspci and got:
Lo and behold, when I put a different unbranded Wireless PC Card in it works. I'm no expert in Networks, but to me this suggests a driver problem (i.e. the card is physically detected it just won't work). However, the correct driver was installed with ndisgtk and this was verified with #ndiswrapper -l, hence the confusion.
I'd be grateful if anyone else has had this problem/knows of this problem and is willing to share the solution with me/point me in the right direction. So far, Google has returned a few posts from a few years ago talking about patching kernels and manually building files etc (just before Prism54 became integrated into the Linux kernel).
I have installed a wireless card in my Ubuntu 9.04 System. When I start Firefox, it keep searching for a while and it cannot connect to the internet. I have attached screen shots of network connections. When I type the address of the router in the browser address window, it cannot access the router.
I am using an HP dv6 series laptop. The wireless works fine in Ubuntu 9.10 (must install the Broadcom STA wireless driver). When I try to use Kubuntu 9.10 my computer crashes when I try to install the driver. Is there any particular reason why it works in one and not the other?
I have Dell Wireless N-card 1520 on my Dell Studio 15 laptop. I have installed Ubuntu10.04 in it. My network card was not able to detect wireless connections. I have even installed 'Windows Wireless Driver' using ndiswrapper. I have latest driver for card. But when i click install .inf file , nothing happens or gets installed.
I have a desktop and I just installed ubuntu 10.04 as a dual boot with windows 7. My desktop has a wireless ZEW1642S card. I don't have access to a wired internet connection, but I can use the wireless on my windows 7 fine. It seems like there is no driver for it to work on ubuntu, and since I don't have an internet connection while in ubuntu, it seems I can't update it of course because I need internet to update. My wireless network does NOT have a password if that even means anything for this. I have the exe installer for the driver for it but I don't know how I'm supposed to get the INF file or whatever.
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Dell Mini 10v and for some reason I just realized that my wired network connection is not working for some reason. And not in windows either. But my wireless works in windows. So I have downloaded the latest Broadcom STA wireless drivers for linux and have tried to follow this tutorial to install it. But when I get to:
make -C /lib/modules/<2.6.xx.xx>/build M=`pwd` clean I can't get it to work. It says:
make: Entering directory '/usr/src/linux-header-2.6.38-8-generic' scripts/Makefile.build:44: /usr/src/linux-header-2.6.38-8-generic/pwd/Makefile: No such file or directory make: *** No rule to make target '/usr/src/linux-header-2.6.38-8-generic
I recently decided to make use of a computer that had been put away for a while by installing ubuntu on it. I went to do a full install of 11.04 (deleting all files and the other OS, windows) and everything went smooth until I realized that the wifi-card firmware had been deleted along with everything else. I can use an ethernet cable to connect to the internet, but no wi-fi. I tried googling to find the appropriate firmware, but none worked.
Running Ubuntu 9.10 Ive just got my wireless connection working after first having got the wired eth0 connection working.
With the wired connection I could SSH into my server through my firewall/router (via a forward). I can run up VNC, from there firefox, browse the web - all is well.
I have now setup the wireless connection, using a static IP, and I can likewise SSH into my server. I can run up VNC. I can ping my router. I can log onto it via VNC. I can browse to my router. But I cant browse the internet.
But I cant ping google.com. The reason is there is no host lookup service. Nslookup eventually says no servers could be reached.
So specifically, if I ping www.google.com Im told "unknown host". If I do an NSlookup on it I get timeout, no servers could be reached. However if I ping 126.96.36.199 I get responses.
I see no relevant entries in my firewall log.
Unfortunately I cant traceroute because the package isnt found - and of course I cant install it because I have no internet !
Strangely (to me at least !) if I then tunnel through SSH and browse the web, I have no problems. It works ? I know I am browsing through my SSH tunnel because whatsmyip gives the IP of my router at home, not where Ive SSHd in from. I can surf just fine.
why I cant do host lookups any more (and this did work with my wired connection, but whether its related to my change to wireless, or static IPs or both I cant be sure - it certainly appeared to happen at the same time). And, more to the point, what I need to look for/do to rectify it ?
As a bonus Id be interested in why I can SSH and browse via tunnelling but not direct from my server (via VNC). Just for interests sake !

I have a dual-boot desktop with Windows 7 and Ubuntu.Problem: Linux does not recognize my D-Link DWA-131 Wireless N USB Adapter. So, I can't access my wireless router or the internet.D-Link has a Linux driver for the DWA-131 posted on their website URL...that includes a readme file with long, strange, convoluted instructions on how to install the driver.
