Ubuntu Networking :: Madwifi Driver Lost After Reboot And Suspend?

Aug 7, 2010

I have a bit of a silly question, as I should know better, but I have a Toshiba A200 laptop that wasn't working well with the default ath5k driver so I switched to madwifi. It works great, but after the laptop goes into suspend or reboots, the driver doesn't get loaded and wireless isn't available.

I've been working around this by going to proprietary drivers, which shows the madwifi driver. When I say activate, it comes back with a failed message but works.

I'd like to save myself from going through this several times a day, but I'm not 100% sure what to do. Do I add madwifi to modprobe or something like that?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Fails After Reboot / Suspend

Dec 30, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS and have it set to dual-boot with windows 7 on my gateway tablet PC. Since installing, sometimes when I suspend or reboot, my wireless does not work. To be more clear - it is working fine, then I either suspend/reboot, then I come back and no wireless networks show up at all. I can still connect with ethernet cable though. I can solve it by rebooting multiple times (usually around 1-5 times) and then it (magically) seems to work again. I have also tried switching from network-manager to wicd, but the problem persists. With both network-manager and wicd, I've tried simulating a reboot for the wireless by using the command 'sudo modprobe -r iwl3945 && sudo modprobe iwl3945' (network-manager) and 'sudo /etc/init.d/wicd restart' (wicd), but these do not seem to work.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired Network Settings Lost On Reboot

Jul 30, 2010

I have installed Lucid in a new laptop. Things are running OK except for the following problem:

I connect to the network/Internet using Wired ethernet (TCP/IP) with static IP. Everytime I reboot/restart my network configurations are lost and I have to re-configure. I have googled this problem and have seen a few posts/bugs in launchpad etc. for what appears to be the same issue...but unfortunately I am not getting a clear solution to this problem.

Just for clarity, I am using the following commands to re-configure my network everytime:

Also note that I have already tried editing the /etc/network/interfaces and the /etc/resolv.conf files. But it seems that these are not being picked or are being overridden.

Ubuntu Networking :: Txpower Wifi Settings Lost After Reboot

Jul 27, 2011

I turned down my txpower with the command: sudo iwconfig wlan0 txpower 3 Which works to fine turn down my broadcast power from the default value of 15 dBm to 3 dBm. But it is reset every time I restart Ubuntu 11.04 to the default value of 15 dBm. How do I save my modified txpower settings so they don't reset after a restart? It is really annoying having to re-enter the command every time I reboot my computer!

I've just picked up another Orinoco Proxim Gold WiFi card for a laptop (this one) that I've put Debian on.

why it worked on my other Dell a couple years ago but isn't working now.

Ubuntu Networking :: Need To Reinstall Wireless Driver After Reboot

May 28, 2010

I've been searching forums like for 2 days, but couldn't find any similar problem.
First of all im running Ubuntu 10.04 desktop version on my netbook Acer aspire one (AOD150)
Every time i turn off my netbook and after turn it on, in "Hardware drivers" it says that driver for wifi is not in use, also button for switching on/off wifi is not working.
So everytime i start up i have to go into "Hardware drivers", remove driver for wifi, and then activate it again. And everything is working gr8 after. Its just too annoying to do it everytime.

Ubuntu Networking :: IBurst Modem Driver & 10.04 LTS LL Pppoeconf Required After Reboot?

Nov 9, 2010

I'm a Linux noob an I am really desperate for some top, top, top assistance. Been battling a while now with my iBurst USB modem driver and hope there is someone out there that can help? I have been through umpteen forums and threads and tried literally everything I read, but to no avail. I also realize there aren't many Ubuntu users that use the iBurst modem, but I am appealing to the few out there that do.

I have installed the open source ibriver-2.6.31 for my iBurst USB modem. Initially all went well with fast connection etc., connection everytime I boot, until... I started updates of 10.04 LTS, that is when I became aware, from the forums, that a re-install of the driver is required after every package update due to no "package management" in the iBdriver. what a pain in the proverbial to say the least!

Anyways.. now I am the stage where the driver is always installed, but...all of a sudden, I need to run pppoeconf and set up the driver after each boot to get connected!!!! If I can't find a solution it will force me back to Windoze7 which I dread to do! Can a script be written to pppoeconf (rp-pppoeconf.iso is loaded I think) automatically during boot perhaps?

So any top Linux hacker or "notsonoobasIam" user out there with a iBurst modem and similar pains & mis-fortunate experience please share your ideas and thoughts to correct this problem permanently for me please? (I should maybe mention that the other day I performed the "Grub2 Profile" exercise to try and speed up the boot time, this does not perhaps have something to do with the fact that I need to reconfigure in pppoeconf after every boot does it? I doubt it)

Ubuntu Networking :: NFS Mounts Cause A Hang On Reboot Of The Mounts Are Lost

Nov 24, 2010

I have multiple ubuntu machines and I connect to one through an NFS share. I have done this for a few years without issue. However, since re-installing ubuntu and upgrading to 10.4 I have a problem with my system hanging when the remote shares are lost.

Basically, I can power down the machine downstairs, and my main machine then has a fit. I can not open any folders in ubuntu, nor can I shut down. If I try and shut down the system hangs, last time it hung for 8 hours before I had to kill the power.

These are the lines in my fstab

I don't know what I've done wrong, or how I can prevent this from hanging. I have googled the heck out of this as well and can't seem to find an answer either.

Ubuntu :: Lost Ability To Suspend And Hibernate - MKV Video Run Slowly

Mar 28, 2011

I have recently downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 and installed it onto my laptop, alongside with pre-installed Windows XP. I'm very happy with Ubuntu and find it a lot better than many other operating systems. However, I have stumbled across a problem recently: I don't seem to be able to suspend ("sleep") the laptop and neither can I hibernate it. These options worked so far and if I remember correctly, this started when I updated my kernel to 2.6.38. Since then, I've lost the options to sleep and hibernate, and when I close my laptop lid, I get a message "Unable to suspend".

Also, a side question - why does video run so slowly on Ubuntu using VLC? This happens to me when watching .mkv videos. Many frames get skipped and there are visible artifacts, in fact, so much that the video can barely be watched. Actual FPS drops below 1, so one frame stays on screen several seconds. I tried tweaking the options, choosing different demuxers, codecs and graphics output. This happens only while running on batteries and works fine under Windows, I have no idea why. Under Windows the video is played using Media Player Classic and ffdshow, if it makes any difference.

Ubuntu Networking :: Weak Wireless Signal In 9.10 With Madwifi (Atheros Ar5001x)

Mar 6, 2010

I am among those unfortunate wretches with an Atheros wireless card (ar5001) and I've had problems with it from the day I installed Ubuntu. I've been using Madwifi to connect to the internet, and it's worked fine, until I lately changed my internet connection, got a new modem etc.

Madwifi works still, but the signal is really weak - while not so on Windows Vista.

I know it's NOT ipv6 related. Do I have to change the connection settings? Is my card outdated or whatever? Am I using inefficient drivers? Should I just not use Madwifi and rather something else instead?

(Trying to install ndiswrapper and get it to work was a dreadful process, so I won't attempt that again.)

Ubuntu Networking :: No Wireless Networks Found After Correctly Installed Madwifi

Jun 2, 2010

I just installed madwifi on my MSI laptop with an Atheros AR5001 wifi card & Lucid. As far as I can see and according to System -> Administration -> Hardware drivers the install was successful and the card + driver is up and running. However, I don't see any wireless network (my windows PC can see about 5 wireless networks). I tried it with the network manager applet as well as with wicd. If I try to connect to "Hidden Wireless Network" via nm-applet, it will start to connect for a while but is unable too (although I supply it with the correct WEP settings & key) So, I'm unable to use my wireless network. What am i doing wrong?

Some information about my system:
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
wifi0 no wireless extensions.
ath0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:""
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated

I've been at this for hours now, also tried ndiswrapper and ath5k drivers with no luck

Ubuntu :: Settings Lost After Each Reboot?

May 16, 2010

I installed Kubuntu on my Toshiba A135 with no problems at all...everything works: sound, wifi, LAN, etc...BUT whenever I reboot/restart the computer my Display and Audio settings revert back to default, and it doesn't happen when I log out, just when I restart/shutdown the computer. I have an Intel 945GM chipset and I have set my external Acer 23" monitor as the default and only monitor with a resolution of 1920x1080@60Hz using KDE's System Settings...And I chose to disable the laptop's internal monitor...but whenever I restart, the display returns to a 1024x800 cloned resolution (the default one)...which by the way looks hideous on a 23" monitor. And also the sound mixer goes back to the default levels.

So, can anyone help me out? I've been using Ubuntu for over 3 years and I've never had any problems like this one. I have just fell in love with Kubuntu, it looks and runs great, but this problem/bug is keeping me from being comfortable with it... I've been reading some things about XRandr and some commands and stuff and nothing have worked until now. I wonder, is it a common bug in Kubuntu or maybe an erroneous setting in the session manager....?

CentOS 5 Networking :: Cannot Complete Installation Of MadWiFi 0.9.4 For WG311T

Jan 11, 2010

I'm trying to install a Netgear WG311T V1H1, rev A3, Atheros AR2414 mac 0x79m phy0x45 on Centos 2.6.18-128.el5. Two methods are offered. The distribution comes with Madwifi's latest driver, ath5K, but it is not supported for this card and is unstable. It will connect but has variable data rates and will drop out with long downloads. My research indicates that the madwifi 0.9.4 driver should support this card. Both methods call for blacklisting ath5k, which I did.

1. Following Centos directions, [URL], I installed the configured RPM Forge and did yum install madwifi, which was successful. The command modprobe ath_pci produces the error "module ath_pci not found." It appears that the RPMForge download did not install these needed bits. So my fundamental question is where is the ath_pci? It is not on the machine.

2. Following the Madwifi directions, I did yum install gcc make perl, which was successful. Their next step, the 'make' command, yielded the KERNELPATH error described on their page [URL]. It points to /lib/modules/2.6.18-128.el5/build, but 'build' is a path, not a file or directory. Installing kernel-devel to get the build files on the system was suggested by another web page, and I did it with yum install kernel-devel, and it was successful, but did not change the error. The literature says I can redirect the make command to the correct spot, but there does not seem to be a correct spot.
