Ubuntu Networking :: Linksys AE1000 Wireless Adapter Not Working?
Feb 16, 2011
I have a AE1000 wireless adapter and Ive been using it or about 4 months on windows xp. Yesterday I installed ubuntu 10.10 and it won't work It won't connect to the internet and won't even show signs that it is turned on.
Ok so I tried to follow the directions here: [URL] However, I couldn't find 2010_0915_RT3572_Linux_STA_v126.96.36.199.tar.bz2. Instead, the closest I could find was 2011_0407_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V2 .5.0.2_DPO.bz2, so I tried it. I edited config.mk and rtusb_dev_id.c as chili555 advised. I tried to edit linux_rt.h, however, the only file I saw was rt_linux.h. I edited it according to chili555's post, message #7. I went back to the root directory of the extracted .bz2 file and did
The linksys AE1000 is not supported by linux according to the linksys website. Are there any workarounds? I use this network adapter to connect to my wireless network, and it is basically useless at the moment.
I'm not a new user to ubuntu but I'm stuck with a driver issue on a wireless adapter upgrade for ubuntu 10.04 lucid lynx. I'm running an acer aspire am1201-e1622a with amd athlon x2 64 bit processor, however i'm only running the 32 bit version of lucid lynx. The following are a few outputs of some commands that might assist in finding the proper driver. Before though i will tell you what i have done.
I have installed a few different drivers from windows wireless driver installer such as the xp and vista 32 and 64 bit versions with no success in the computer actually recognizing that i have a wireless adapter installed. The windows wireless driver installer said that hardware was present but i was unable to scan for networks or even see that i had a choice to do that. This meaning that it didn't show i had wireless capabilities in my network manager. i tested this with gnome network manager which is the default manager for 10.04 and also with wicd with no success.
Following these tests i attempted to install a driver from source following the instructions on another forum. This allowed me to manually turn on the wireless adapter but i was still unable to find any networks. This meaning that wicd was able to see that i had a wireless adapter installed but it for some reason was unable to see any wireless networks around. I'm 100% sure my router is in range and that it is configured correctly. I have 5 other computers connect to this router along with some of them being ubuntu.
Here is the situation: I am currently running Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit. I'm trying to get my Linksys AE1000 to run correctly. I have followed many tutorials but most notably was:[URL].. lsmod shows that rt3572sta is loaded. network manager in gnome is able to find my router. my problem occurs when it tries to connect to the router using wpa2 security. It continually asks for the wireless password then will freeze the system after a number of attempts. After digging in for a bit, I was able to dig out a dmesg trapping the error:
BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffcfb0138af1ec IP: [<ffffffffa021c7e8>] Cntl0idRTBssidProc+0x78/0x570 [rt3572sta] PGD 0 Oops: 0000 [#1] SMP last sysfs file: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu7/cache/index2/shared_cpu_map CPU 2
I really don't see the need to continue on with those error messages lsmod still shows rt3572sta after the failure. In case anyone wants to see the changes I have made to the files before the make, I have included them. but changed the extension to "txt" to accommodate the up-loader and my rt_linux is too big to fit here, just not that it was 2 lines that were changed to work with the kernel. If anyone wants to know what I mean by the system freezes, I do mean just that. The mouse will continue to work, but I am then unable to open any programs, unable to reboot the computer. it requires a hard reset.
I have uninstalled the drivers, installed them, make them, make install them, make clean, start from scratch a few times, and am getting no give here.
I recently purchased the Linksys AE1000 wireless USB network adapter. After some struggles, I found and installed the Ralink_RT3572USB_drv2400 driver for it and it now works, however it won't turn on when I boot up the computer. I have to manually unplug and then plug the adapter back in for it to work again. I followed the instructions on this how to for installing the driver.
Previously I had my desktop hooked up to a nearby router via an ethernet cord with my parents' computer having a wireless usb adapter to connect (This thing: [uRL]). We just moved and our setup has reversed (router is near their computer, I am using the usb adapter). I just installed the latest Ubuntu and now I can't get the usb adapter to work. I'm very new to Linux and I have no idea what to do. I think this is the same usb adapter.
I am completely new to Linux and have just installed Xubuntu on an old HP machine. Until I buy a long enough ethernet cord to reach my router upstairs, I would like to try to make use of a Linksys wireless USB network adapter that I have (WUSB11 ver. 2.. I looked around online and I got pretty confused. I don't know where to start.
I'm trying to install a Linksys WUSB600n dual-band USB wireless-N adapter onto a desktop system with opensuse 11.1 installed; this system will be migrating to a back porch with no cabling access, hence the wireless solution. Everything works fine under Windows XP, but on Linux, not so much. Hardware info is as follows; there is no "Wireless LAN" entry, but there is a USB entry:
I actually wasn't even trying to install the adapter which is the funny thing, I just finally got around to installing mandriva 2010 on my desktop and happened to have the adapter already hooked up to a usb port for my windows installation. When I got done with the installation to my amazement it got recognized and I didn't have to do a thing!
I looked into installing the adapter on my laptop which already had mandriva 2010 on it and gave up cause I didn't find any post's here that addressed the issue very well. Just thought I would pass it along for anyone who want's to try this on there computer.
I have installed Suse 11.4 from the Gnome liveCD, and I "can" access my home network when it is unsecured, however, I can't access it when WEP is turned on. Now, I know that WEP is insecure but there are devices on the network that only supports WEP so the router settings can't be changed. Also just for testing purposes i have tried the WPA2 encryption method to no avail (dmesg reports that the connection timed out). The only encryption method that looks promising is the open-wep encryption. When trying to connect to the network (with open-wep turned on) I have performed a bit of checking to see what is going on, now I don't know much about in-depth linux and stuff but, below are the outputs from lsusb, dmesg, iwconfig, and ifconfig.

I recently tried to install Crunchbang on my IBM Thinkpad T20 laptop. Everything went OK as far as I can tell (I still have to adjust acpi and display settings), but I cannot get my laptop to connect to the internet via wireless (wired connection works fine). I've done a good deal of searching online, and I realize that my wireless adapter (wpc54gs, bcm4318 chipset) is problematic in linux, and that b43-fwcutter is typically required. I did install b43-fwcutter, and it seemed to install OK, but nothing subsequently happened when I opened networkmanager. I'm not sure at this point if my problem is that I don't know how to configure any wireless adapter in crunchbang, or if it is that my particular adapter is not being recognized.
I bought a USB adapter for my wireless connection at home. But there is no drivers for the adapters in ubuntu, there is only windows executable files. I am using ubuntu 10.04. I spend around 40$ for the adapter. Some one please help me how to work this out. Its NP910n netcomm adapter. I am using ubuntu10.04.
As the title reads. My wireless adapter does not work when I boot from the Ubuntu 10.04 LiveCD. The adapter in question... tricky. It's this one: [URL]...- however, aside from a mention in one of the comments to a "Ralink RT2780", I don't see any reference to a make/model.
The software that ships with this product is indeed Ralink-branded, but again there's no mention of a specific make/model. So I assume it's just a driver issue, however I've no idea where to begin in my search for one as I can't identify its model number.
I have been searching for days on end trying to get my machine to detect my Netgear WG111T wireless adapter...and I've gotten absolutely nowhere at all.Most tutorials suggest I use ndigstk(sp?), which allows me to use Windows drivers for my adapter. I've been told many times to use the wg111t.inf file, but all I've been able to come up with is the w11t.inf file. Whenever I start up the Windows Wireless Drivers application, I usually get a popup which tells me "Unable to see if Hardware is detected"--yet when I hit the OK prompt, next to the w11t.inf file, it says "Hardware detected --Yes", yet I still have gotten nowhere. I grasp some basics of Linux, but overall I'm still pretty new to it--and I have a big headache from the whole thing.
EDIT: I forgot to mention, my install is 9.04, so if 9.10 resolves this, how would I go about upgrading without downloading an ENTIRELY new disc (I have a horrid internet connection, it'd take HOURS to download the 699MB ISO, so perhaps make that a last resort)
I'm using ubuntu 10.04 (all latest updates are installed) and when I plug my 300N Wireless USB Adapter WL-344 in my computer, Ubuntu does nothing: the light of the stick doesn't burn and ubuntu doesn't see the usb.
I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.4 on my Dell Inspiron 6400 yesterday (32-bit). Everything was running great, but when I turned it on today my wireless adapter is no longer working and the hardware switch doesn't do anything. It's working in Windows fine so it can't be the hardware.Here is some information:
Restarting the network with 'sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart' didn't work.I've tried Ubuntu several times before but usually there is one small issue which makes me go back to Windows. I love 10.4 so I hope I can get this working so I can stay on Ubuntu!
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.10. It is great and all but I am not able to get my wireless adapter working...it is a cheapo one and I have found different tutorials around the internet trying to get it to work...to no avail!
I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 alongside Windows 7 and it is not picking up my Belkin N wireless adapter?? So I went to go and download the Windows Wireless Drivers (ndiswrapper) software so I can install my adapter and the download center just says "Not available in the current data" and wont let me download it? Also I tried to download my nVidia drivers from software center and it said the same thing?
Never before have I had a problem with Ubuntu until now So can anyone point me in any directions as to how to get these installed???
I tried getting a Belkin USB Wireless adapter:N150 to work in a fresh installation of 10.4 with no success. After reading several forum posts I tried both solutions with ndiswrapper and the XP driver and with the Ralink native driver with no luck.
Code: lsusb Bus 005 Device 008: ID 050d:935a Belkin Components Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
I updated Ubuntu to 10.04 after which I noticed the wireless indicator lights on my HP laptop were continually flashing between blue and orange and network performance seemed slow. I did some searching and found and implemented the following change to stop the flashing:
gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/wlan.conf
Copy and paste the below line:
options iwlcore led_mode=1
Since making this change the wireless connection is shut off and I can;t get it to work at all. I first tried simply to remove the change to get back wher I was, but I can;t do that. Can sopmebopdy toell me at least how to get rid of this wlan,conf file ( it was created by the above command) so I can start over?
Coincidentally since making this change my Windows Vista OS fails to start because of errors attributed to a software or hardware change, of which there were none other than the Ubuntu wlan.conf change. . It may be unrelated but I am suspicious of the coincidence. I am running Vista and Ubuntu in a dual boot configuration and all ha run very well until I did the Ubuntu wlan.conf change.
I am now attempting a complete recovery of my Vista system, since it seems irreparably broken. Again coincidence or not?
I have a Toshiba MX35 laptop it's a little old but does the job. I'm have a problem getting the wireless to work. I can boot a live CD either Ubuntu 10.10 or Fedora 14 and they will see the wireless card. The card is Atheros Communications Inc. Atheros AR5001X+ Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01).
I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed and that is the OS that is having the problem seeing the wireless. The computer will not handle Ubuntu 10.10 (at least it won't handle the desktop effects under Ubuntu 10.10) but handles them just fine under 9.10 and that's why I have 9.10 installed. I really need the Wifi to work because I'm going to travel in a few days.
