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 :: Reinstall The Wireless Driver?

Jul 15, 2010

I did a few things to the drivers and the wireless aspect of my ubuntu system and I'd like to know how would I reset everything back to as if it was a fresh install (but only regarding my wireless drivers and all that jazz)?

I'll have to purge it and then reinstall it over a wired network.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Activate Nvidia Driver Or Get Wireless After Reinstall Of 10.10

Oct 25, 2010

so i got myself in way over my head too soon with Ubuntu but i really like the OS.. I installed 10.10 on my HP laptop according to the directions on [URL]. Everything went well and I had no problems until I came across a thread about aircrack-ng.. I decided to test how vulnerable my own connection was after getting scared by looking up some how-to videos on ..... that made it look a little to easy. I was having a ton of problems with the injections tests and couldnt get it to work. I was trying to patch my ath5k driver according to some threads i found on this forum and couldn't get it to work. I finally found a thread somewhere about editing the base.c file to fix the driver. Well, being a noob i have no idea what i did but it wasn't good... yep, shake your head.. i deserve it haha.. anyway....

When i rebooted the comp after finishing the editing process it came up with all kinds of errors and brought me to a grub rescue prompt.. Yikes!! luckily i had Ubuntu 10.10 on a usb so i restarted, tried to delete the partition it was on with gparted and then tried to reinstall it.. The installation worked and now I can boot into windows again from the grub loader with no problems, but Ubuntu is all screwy.. Windows connects to the internet and doesn't seem to be phased in the slightest bit but ubuntu won't let me stay connected to any wireless networks and I also get a failed message when i try to activate the nvidia driver in Ubuntu.. Man, did i learn a lesson about getting ahead of myself and trying to bite off more than I can chew! I really love Ubuntu and the open source ideal so I don't want to let this sour me..

At the partition select prompt when I reinstalled ubuntu I selected "partition my drive manually" or something to that effect. Should I have installed it along side windows via the other option? I have a feeling my problem was compounded when i tried to erase the partition Ubuntu was on but now I'm totally lost and I really don't want to screw up my comp any more! I figured it's time to ask for help instead of shooting in the dark searching random threads for a similar experience which may not be similar at all.

Is there a way to repartition everything from windows without losing my data and reinstalling Ubuntu? I didn't have anything worth saving on Ubuntu but i have about 100gb worth of stuff on my windows partition i don't wanna lose! If I forgot to add any necessary information let me know and i'll be happy to provide any info I can.

Ubuntu Networking :: Creating Script To Remove And Reinstall Windows Driver

Nov 28, 2010

I am running 10.10 on a Samsung n130. Occasionally my wifi adapter locks up, everything looks like it is connected but I cannot connect to the web. I have worked out that removing and re-installing the windows driver brings it back to life (a restart also works). What I was wondering is could it be possible to create a script that would carry out the removal and installation of the driver with one click of a button.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Reinstall Network Driver After Changing Motherboard?

Jan 17, 2010

I have a newly installed CentOS 5.4 on Gigabyte G31M-ES2C, I had to change the motherboard since it has some problems. Unfortunately the new motherboard is a rev 2.x board, which has a different onboard NIC (old one is RTL 8102E, new one is AR8132), so now my ethernet connection doesn't work anymore (no eth0 device), I assume I need to install a new driver for the AR8132? If so, what's the steps to do so?lspci shows Ethernet controller as: Attansic Technology Corp. Atheros AR8132 / L1c Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (rev c0)

Ubuntu Networking :: No Wireless With Reinstall?

Nov 17, 2010

I gave up trying to figure out the problem and just reinstalled 10.10. Anyways, did the reinstall, installed all proprietary drivers and STILL NO WIRELESS. Seriously, what the heck is going on? Again, computer is HP Pavillion dv2500, using 10.10, and the wireless driver is the Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA wireless driver. I previously had access to the Internet, so I really don't know what could have changed.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Broken After Upgrade To 10.04 And After Reinstall Of 9.10

Jun 9, 2010

I recently upgraded Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 and my wireless stopped working. It can detect that there are networks around, what their signal strength is, and then try to connect to one, but it just keeps connecting. After around 5 minutes, this stops and nm-applet says no network connection.

After I try to connect, dmesg is spammed with hundreds of the same message. I can not post these here, as I am writing from a different computer and I have no internet access from my main computer.Also, there is nothing in interfaces.conf other than lo. For some reason, my card is referred to as both wlan0 and wmaster0, with this changing depending upon where I look.Most interesting of all is that, even after I reinstalled 9.10, wireless is still broken, even though it wasn't before. It also used to work under liveCD.

Nothing when I try to use the wireless though.

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 :: 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 :: Wireless Networking Quit After Reboot?

Feb 27, 2010

I've had my wireless networking (on an Acer Aspire laptop) working perfectly well for at least six months.Now, quite suddenly, after a reboot I get the message from wicd, "No wireless networks found". I probably was running a week or so before that without needing a reboot. Windows wireless is fine (I'm using it to send this post).In addition, my sound stopped working and I see a fleeting message to the effect that the sound system is reverting from analog to digital.I'm running Kubuntu 9.10. My guess is that something in a recent round of updates knocked me out of the box. How can I proceed to set things aright?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Down On Reboot - No Hardware Present

Oct 1, 2010

i installed linux on this laptop around 2 years ago (hp g6000 laptop) with internal wireless card and was unable to get the internal wireless card to work under ubuntu. so i purchased a linux supported usb wifi stick, which worked perfectly (connected automatically on boot) each time. however, i moved house recently and lost this usb wifi stick. i am currently using a ethernet connection to my hub and have updated ubuntu to the current version. all software is also up to date. since i lost my old wifi stick, i have used this connection, however, yesterday when i was on videos, all of a sudden (without me having done anything {intentionally anyway}) i see the wireless connection graphic at the top right of the screen! both green dots lit and the connection was live! so i disconnected the ethernet and used the wifi all night without a hitch.

i was extremely happy with what had happened and could not work out why it had decided to work (having not been aware to doing anything, except sit and watch a videos video). so i shut down, go to bed, go to work the next day and come home looking forward to browsing the web from my sofa, and guess what, no internet connection once i logged in! i just think 'if it worked last night, it can work now'. i have ndiswrapper and i have the .inf driver file for the internal card installed in ndiswrapper. i have opened that tonight and it looks okay - except it says 'hardware present: no'. i do not understand what has happened at all. (also there is a wifi 'on off' switch on the front of the laptop, with an orange led but neither position makes any difference to the card working or not and it hasnt changed positions since i moved house (to the best of my knowledge anyway).

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 :: Wireless Randomly Disconnects - Only Works Again After Reboot

Jul 3, 2010

I'm having a problem with my wireless connection. When it runs, it's perfect, but every once in a while (and increasingly more often) it randomly disconnects and doesn't reconnect when I click reconnect, even if I manually disconnect it. Every time this happens, I have to reboot the system, after which it works perfectly. Then it dies again.

I've checked around the forums, there are some similar threads but they seem to be specific to the wireless card. The reboot method works, but I'd really like to find a way to solve the problem without having to resolve to the Vulcan nerve pinch. I'm a real newbie to Linux and the more complex side of computers in general, and I hardly know what is what, so please excuse me if I seem a bit thick.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Connection Requires Router Reboot?

Feb 11, 2011

I was having an issue with my wireless connection last week, and sometimes even my hardwired connection. It had seemed like every time my PC went into standby, or any low-power mode, the WiFi would stop working. I used the "power off" command and got it back and running. When I boot up the computer in the morning, I am unable to connect until I reset the wireless router. Unfortunately, I did not have the presence of mind to get iwconfig first thing in the morning, but I did reboot the laptop and grabbed iwconfig before I connected and after I connected. Now, for some reason, the router worked when I rebooted, but I had to reset it this morning. Any ideas? iwconfig below:

Ubuntu Networking :: Hang On Reboot When Connected To NFS/ldap Server Via Wireless

Jun 18, 2010

School with linux running on students' laptops, connecting via wlan to a Debian NFS and LDAP server. Every student logs on his/her profile residing on the NFS server.The clients are set up with autofs. Earlier, I had set up the wireless network in /etc/network/interfaces, but this time I decided to configure network manager so as to bring up both wireless and wired network before logon. This setup has been working on for the last fire or five years with only minor changes. Also worked with Karmic Koala, but still with the interfaces file instead of networkmanager. The Vostro is also new here, we've previously used mostly Dell Latitude D505s.

So here is what works:

1: Clients can log on to LDAP and NFS servers both wired and wirelessly. Everything is smooth.

2: While on LAN, shutdown and restart works flawlessly (and quick as a breeze, I'm really impressed by startup/restart/shutdown times, under 25 secs!).

3: Shutdown and restart also works wirelessly when doing it either from a local account or from the GDM chooser.

What doesn't work, however, is shutting down or restarting directly from a networked account connected while only being connected over the wireless network. This is what's being displayed on the terminal after it has tried tho shut down for a while:


The system is going down for halt NOW!

acpid: exiting
init: cron main process (1011) killed by TERM signal.
init: tty1 main process (1365) killed by TERM signal.


If I try ctrl-alt-del at this stage, it says:

"init: rc main process (3030) killed by TERM signal"

"Checking for running unattended-upgrades: "

And then it will hang again, until I hold the powerbutton for some seconds. The unattended-upgrades part is what seems to be the culprit. I suspect it is about the wireless network not being connected any longer or something like that, but I'm not sure about how to go about debugging shutdown scripts here. I'd be grateful for pointers. I will try and see how it goes with the old interfaces file setup, but I'd rather make nm work.

Networking :: Wireless Network Times Out - Will Not Restart Without Reboot

Nov 1, 2010

I had been manually starting my wireless network with "sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid "my wireless router id". The network would start and work flawlessly for weeks at a time. I can't ask my wife to find the essid in the terminal and then start wireless manually when I'm not here. She hates and fears the terminal. So I downloaded gnome network manager for a point and click interface on gnome panel.The network would start fine but shut down after anywhere from one to six hours. It would then refuse to restart manually or otherwise. I completely uninstalled network manager and tried wicd instead. The same basic problem is happening. The network will restart if I reboot the computer. My system:

Desktop computer acting as proxy server for the internet. Internet connection is by a dial up modem. This computer uses a wireless pci card connected to a dedicated hub. This is for file sharing via nfs. The OS is ubuntu 9.10. My wife's computer sharing the internet using a proxy to my computer. File sharing via nfs and a wireless card. Also running ubuntu 9.10. This same basic system worked flawlessly under Ubuntu Hardy.My desktop was updated recently with new hardware which created the need to move to Ubuntu Karmic. Some hardware was too new for hardy to deal with.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Driver Is Unistalled?

Jun 1, 2010

Basically today (1st of june) about 1.30pm my computer updated. I was on facebook at the time and was commenting on a post but didn't click "Send message". My computer went onto screensaver, So I unlocked my computer to find my keyboard wasn't working (But it was ok on the password lock). I then thought that restarting my computer might help the keyboard to work. I restarted my computer and as it turned on, my wireless icon had an exclamation mark next to it ("!") I clicked on the icon to find that only "Wired network" was only displayed, Before the restart "Wireless network" was there but it had disappeared. I've looked into it, and it looks like my wireless driver has been unistalled by the most recent update on Ubuntu. As far as I remember the wireless driver was Broadcom for a hp pavillion zd8000.
