Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Constantly On And Off Eee Pc Ath5k Driver?

May 23, 2010

Cannot get wireless to work. Hostapd.conf had nothing inserted in it so I put the following in which I found [URL]..So it connected right away and then disconnected after opening one of my tabs. I went back into hostapd.conf and it had erased all the info I put in there. Is there a way to keep it from deleting this info every time. Because it worked great for a brief second. Otherwise it just keeps going on, then going off. It stays off most of the time though. Right now this is what my iwconfig reads:

Fedora Networking :: Can't Start Wireless Automatically With Ath5k On F9

Jul 4, 2009

After an upgrade to in March, my Atheros wireless stopped working. (It had previously run without a hitch for 9 months). Anyway, I finally got around to working on it today and using the "WiFi misery" thread managed to consistently get it to start manually via these steps:ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 essid netname key xxxxxxxxxxxxx
click on "activate" in network device control (gives error msg, but works)

During boot-up, I get "Invalid argument" errors for "SET MODE", "SET BIT RATE", and "SET ENCODE".Currently NetworkManager service is disabled, but when enabled doesn't seem to change any of the above.I'd like to get back to automatically coming up wireless, if possible.

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom B44 Ethernet Controller Not Working After Patching Wlan Driver

May 28, 2011

I patched my wireless driver in order to support packet injection. Using this tutorial:

- Install the Firmware:


- Create new directory:


- Now disconnect Internet and unload all your driver (use rmmod command)

- Move/copy the Compat-Wireless patched in /usr/src/drivers directory and unpack the drivers:


Blacklist the wl driver: (STA driver)


Currently I'm running Ubuntu 10.10, Kernel 2.5.35-29-generic. I have a Broadcom 4318 for my WLAN and a Broadcom 4401-B0 for my ethernet. I followed the tutorial and I managed to get packet injection working on my WLAN; however, my ethernet connection isn't working. I tried sudo modeprobe b44, but I get the following message:

FATAL: Error inserting b44 (/lib/modules/2.6.35-29-generic/kernel/drivers/net/b44.ko): Invalid argument

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros "ath5k" Wireless Not Working?

Jun 5, 2011

I've followed a few different steps to try and solve the wireless issue, but no luck so far. I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 with Atheros 5001 "ath5k" driver and module. I use "WPA & WPA 2 Personal" security.I first did "rfkill list all" to see what was being blocked, and at the time, I had this:Quote:

Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: yes

General :: Adding Blacklist ATH5K - No Permissions?

Feb 2, 2011

I am trying to add "blacklist ath5k" to the end of the blacklist.config file but it tells me that I don't have permissions to do this. Went to permissions and it says that only the owner can change this. As for owner it says read and write. In ownership it just says user: root and group: root. Very new to this stuff so I am not sure what to do.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Won't Boot After Patching?

Mar 30, 2010

Ubuntu 9.10 running as a guest on VMware esxi v4.0 I used the gui update manger and applied a whole lot of updates about 1 hour ago. During the update process it prompted me to use the "maintainer" version or "current", for what I have no idea, I wasn't paying much attention, and I guess thats where all the trouble began There were no other prompts, just the one above.Anyway I said use the "maintainers" version. The Update then completed and I rebooted. Only to have the screen sitting blank and black.

I hit alt-f1 and the following appears:


Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:

- Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
- Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
- Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)

Ubuntu Installation :: Patching The Kernel To

Aug 29, 2010

I've installed recently the latest version of Ubuntu (64 bits) on my notebook (Acer Aspire 5535), which has an AMD Athlon X2 QL-62, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3200 and 4GB of RAM.The system runs pretty well, but I experience some hangups from time to time, resuming from hibernation won't show any image which forces me to shutdown the computer, and some ubuntu applications lock up, like the Administration > System Test (if I decide not to give admin priveleges).

I believe this is something to do with the kernel (using the 2.6.32-24-generic actually), I intend to patch it to the newest stable release in www.kernel.org which is After I download it I used the command: "patch -E -p1 <patch" I do get lots of *.rej files, I believe to be some error files. I also tried the same command with "sudo".I restart the system and nothing happens, I end up with the same kernel.Is there an easy way to do this step-by-step for noobs and keeping all drivers/programs/and graphical appeareance?

Debian Hardware :: Testing Is Now Soft Blocking WiFi (ath5k)

Aug 20, 2014

Regularly updated debian testing on a netbook. I normally use wired ethernet, but I am pretty sure that I had wifi (wlan0) working normally a few days ago.

Today, I find that wlan0 has a soft block:

# rfkill list
0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no

It seems that the kernel(?) is sending a udev event to set this:

# rfkill event
1408563052.478251: idx 0 type 1 op 0 soft 1 hard 0

# rfkill unblock wlan
works *unless* the wifi button on this laptop is used. Then I get an apparently permanent hard block.
rfkill cannot unblock, and repeated button actions do not clear.

Adding the no_hw_rfkill_switch to the ath7K driver ensures that the wifi button is disabled.

All this is new: I have been using wifi on this netbook for years without problems, so something has changed. I moved to systemd (sigh) maybe a month ago, so perhaps the root problem is a systemd udev bug.

The real problem is knowing where to look or bug report. Is it a recent change in the ath5k driver or kernel? IIRC I checked the driver and there were no recent commits. Likewise rfkill hasn't changed recently. More likely to be something around systemd udev, perhaps, given the mayhem systemd has caused on another machine here. Or perhaps somewhere in the wireless subsystem.

lspci -k includes:
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR242x / AR542x Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)
Subsystem: Foxconn International, Inc. Device e008
Kernel driver in use: ath5k

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Patching The Broadcom Hybrid Driver?

Apr 20, 2010

Im making plans to buy a 15" Dell Inspiron notebook as it's currently the cheapest 15" notebook which is available in my country, and from what I have read, the Dell WiFi card used in the notebook is Broadcom based, and that Broadcom had recently released hybrid drivers for their cards. Now, after browsing through OpenSUSE's HCL [URL] it seems that a patch to the drivers is needed.how do you patch the driver? Do you just go to <extracted driver directory>/src/wl/sys/wl_iw.c and just throw in this whole chunk of text anyway into the file, or is there something more to it?

Slackware :: Slackware64 /usr/lib /usr/lib64 / Continue Patching All These Makefiles That Have Libdir=/usr/lib Hard Coded To Keep A Sane System?

May 21, 2009

I've never used a 64bit system set up this way. They've been pure 64bit with everything simply in /usr/lib with no /usr/lib64. IIRC That's how Arch used to do it.

My question is, should I continue patching all these makefiles that have libdir=/usr/lib hard coded to keep a sane system? What are the side effects of not putting all the libs in /usr/lib64? These are for the sources that don't use or follow --libdir= and LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib64".

Can I rm -rf /usr/lib then ln -s /usr/lib64 /usr/lib and still have things work. There are a couple of files in /usr/lib now {codecs/ crda/ libsyslinux.a rpm/ sendmail siconv/ syslinux/ terminfo/ trn/} which came from a stock install.

There are not any 32bit programs I need to run. If I did, that's what KVM is for

PS. I want some Slackware64 Swag!

General :: Patch In .sh File - Error "patching: Command Not Found"

Mar 1, 2011

I have a script: `cd $FILEPATH && patch -i $TMPFILEA2$FILETMPPATH` Variable $FILESPATH is = /tmp/ardiff.AvUUGfOKa2/a/hello/ and Variable $TMPFILEA2$FILETMPPATH is = /tmp/ardiff.AvUUGfOKa2/b/hello/hello.c.patch. I don't know, why is it no working from script file, it write me message to terminal: ./ardiff.sh: line 242: patching: command not found.

But I have no PATCHING command there!!!! The paradox is, when I want to patch it from terminal (I write it to terminal by keyboard, it works).

Ubuntu Networking :: Dial-up Networking In Lucid Lynx 10.01 ?

Feb 16, 2011

I've been running 8.04 Hardy since its first release, and was hoping to deal with its loss of support by going to 8.10 but learned that it has already been dropped.

So I'm back to installing 10.04 - and up against the bizarre choice to drop dial-up networking! Fortunately, I have my 8.04 machine still live, and I've researched it extensively without success.

The best summary of what I've done follows this post I found online:


I read many threads about dialup, including those on this forum; made sure to get an external hw modem [USRobotics 5637 USB, advertised as controller-based and tested to work in Linux], to avoid the softmodem/winmodem problem.

Using the 10.04 LiveCD, I installed the four .deb packages that are in poolmainwwvdial and in poolmainwwvstreams.

Now I'm stuck because I get errors when I try command line stuff, errors like "cannot open /dev/modem" and "can't find /dev/modem in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab"

I'm confused; I've read so many threads with so much different info that I can't sort it out. Maybe I'm following info that applied to earlier versions of Ubuntu. Every error I try to fix leads to more errors. Can someone suggest a constrained, step-by-step procedure to ensure I've mounted the modem, added myself to whatever groups, and whatever else I need to do?

I know there's no wizard to make it simple, but is there a checklist or something to help me sort this out? I have the ISP info, DNS primary+secondary server numbers, phone numbers, etc. Is there a UI/graphical path, instead of command line? Had no idea this would be so difficult.

Ubuntu Networking :: How Networking Works In Lucid

Aug 6, 2010

I am a little confused with the way that networking works in Ubuntu (Lucid in particular). I switch my PC on and my network magically works (ie I dont understand what is configuring everything). I do have a DHCP server, but im not sure which process/file is configuring the interface.There is no entry for my wired interface (eth0) in /etc/network/interfaces.$ cat /etc/network/interfacesauto loface lo inet loopbackDoes this means that Network Manager is then responsible for configuring this interface? How does Network Manager configure this interface (are there config files somewhere that specify settings such as static IP and duplex)?
