I just upgraded to natty last night, and everything is working fine except for the network manager. I can enable and configure the wireless card via bash, but the network manager widget will not manage the wireless card.
When I first boot up, the "Enable wireless" check box is greyed out. After I enable the card via the terminal, the "Enable wireless" check box becomes ungreyed, but every time I click it, it instantly unchecks itself. I feel like Currly from the Three Stoogies. Check, uncheck, Check, uncheck.. "Slaps face repeatedly."
I just loaded the boot-able cd, and I do not have enough knowledge with Linux bases OS's to figure out how to enable the wireless card. ifconfig produces an eth0 and a lo, when I try ifup wlan0, it says: configuration for wlan0 not found. I have looked at all the forums notes and cannot find anything that seams like it is the same problem.
My wireless can connect to my router without a problem, but in order to do so (after boot) I must first disable networking in the Notification Area and then re-enable it. I don't mind it too much, but when other people use my computer, it's made painfully obvious to me, that this was never an issue with Windows 7 (as much as I despise MS).
I've been experiencing a problem with Fedora in which when I enable Wireless in Fedora, Wireless networking does not work in windows. HOwever, when disabled, it works correctly. Windows claims it is "not able to find any networks to connect to"
EDIT: It seems that when wireless is disabled manually on fedora before shutdown, there are no problems in windows.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Server. I can't get my Wireless Card & Wired Card to work at the same time. My interfaces file is incorrect, when I comment out 1 of the interfaces the other works. I have attached my interfaces file.
I recently installed CentOS on a really old computer and while most things are running well, I am unable to connect to the internet. Using a Damn Small Linux live CD I am able to connect just fine and was able to see that that 'hp100' was being used as the netcard driver. When I tried to set up the network card using that adapter (HP10/100VG ....) it gives me the following error code...
I used the windows executable wubii installation for xubuntu 10.04 I'm not dual booting.My problem is all indications in the user interface are selected "enable networking" "enable wireless" and my wireless switch was on throughout and was connected to the internet during the installation in windows.However
I am a day old in ubuntu-world, and I am having internet issues. Yesterday, after i had installed ubuntu alongside windows 7. To begin with it did not detect wireless (not networks but wireless itself), so i figured it was something to do with the adapter and came to these forums where many things were suggested. none worked. So I restarted the system for good measure and lo and behold it detected wireless networks and connected to the internet almost immediately.
Now, after a day, when i have logged in to ubuntu again, there is no wireless detected. The same problem. When I right click on the network icon in the notification area i see that Enable Networking is checked but "Enable Wireless" is darkened. There is no way to check it.
Can anybody please advise as to what to do next. I am using ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx I believe).My system config is i7, 512MB ram.
my computer-toshiba satellite currently running on ubuntu 10.10 i cant connect to wireless except when im at my parents house not to sure why it was working now all of a sudden it stopped while i was using 10.04 figure when i upgraded to 10.10 it would fix it self ..didnt happen so im stumped when i right click on the satelite it the top right of my screen it shows-

dont know why it wont allow me to enable the wireless
I have recently installed ubuntu on my laptop. However I cannot enable the wireless on it. The card is registered and drivers are installed. From reading previous forums i can guess that its because its "Hard Blocked"" (assumptions). However the switch for it is in the on postion.
We're on vacation here with free wifi and I brought two laptops. The older of the two laptops running Ubuntu 10.04 and a Broadcom wireless chip suddenly wouldn't work this morning. I checked and it says wireless disabled, however wireless is grayed out when I right click on network manager. I have -no- idea what to do. I've never seen wireless just die like that. I popped open the cover but the wireless card is fine. I re-seated it, booted back up, still no sign of it.
I have been having some problems with my wireless connection. I am having to start my computer 2 times in order for my wireless connection to work. The first time I start up, even after I enable wireless it wont connect. If I reboot immediately and enable wireless it will then connect. I would like to be able to fix this problem since it has become really annoying to me to have to boot my computer 2 times every time I turn it on. BTW Network manager shows auto-connect, however it also shows i month ago as to the last time the connections were used.
I am newbie at linux and Ubuntu and I have some problems enabling my wireless. I have spent many hours searching for solutions and couldn't find one for me (maybe don't apply it right - I am newbie). I have HP Pavilion dv6, dual boot Win7 and Ubuntu. At Win7 wireless is ok but at Ubuntu I can't enable my wireless adapter, so my laptop can't recognise any wireless network.
I am new to linux. I just installed linux on my PC and wanted to configure wireless network connections. I have entered SSID and mode is set to infrastructure. I don't know what is BSSID do I need to enter MAC address (of router?)?I need to connect to internet wireless can you please guide me ?
I have an Averatec 3200 laptop with a Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG card. When I click on Network Connections, it says wireless is disabled. I checked my /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state file, and it said "wireless enabled=false" so I changed it to true.
It just goes back to false on reboot. I also ran rfkill unblock all, but rfkill list still shows that there is a hardware block on. The driver for this wireless card shows that it is installed. I'm not sure what to try next!I just bought this computer used, and freshly installed Ubuntu 10.10 on it, so can't say if it worked in any other distro.
i have jolicloud (i think it uses gnome) on my hp mini 110 and my internet has been working fine and everything until for some dumb reason i pushed the wireless on/off button on the front of the computer. normally on windows i would just have to push the button again but its not working with linux. how can i re-enable my wireless?
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.
Those are my authentication capabilities, obviously. I am using a WEP encryption for my wireless router and according to this, it will not allow me to connect. Is there anyway to allow that? The wireless card works just fine in Windows, even on the same network encryption type. Using a Intel Wireless/Pro 4965 ag. Note* this is my mother's router and whatnot. She won't change it the encryption type.
The problem with my wireless network. I have Dell DV6 Pavilion 2115 eg laptop and i installed Ubuntu 11.4 and internet and wireless worked, until i reboted my system it has disapear. I cant no longer to connect to a wireless network. It dont shows me any wireless network. My wireless card is Atheros AR 9285 802.11b/g/n Wifi Adapter
I installed a Tenda W322P wireless card in my dual-boot PC running both Windows XP and Ubuntu 11.04. The card worked straight out of the box on XP, but does not function correctly under Ubuntu. My apologies for any missing/irrelevant information, I am having to post this from the Windows boot so the Ubuntu settings are not directly available at the same time as internet access.I followed the process detailed here htURL...to install and configure the driver (I believe from reading other sites that this card is the Ralink RT3062 chipset), blacklisted the original RT2860 driver that was in use (couldn't even get the card to scan for wireless networks with the default driver) and restarted the interface.
Since then, sudo iwlist scan can find my wireless router but when I attempt to connect to it, it seems to enter a loop of requesting the WEP key then pausing for a while before re-requesting the key. I know I have the key value correct because it is copied and pasted from the same text file I used to copy and paste into the passkey field on the Windows boot. Attempting to connect to the router using Ubuntu also has the rather unfortunate side-effect of crashing the wireless router, killing off all other device connections until the router has been reset.
