Ubuntu Networking :: Sony Vaio SZ Series - Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG Or AGN?
Jul 22, 2010
I am new to Ubuntu and I have problem with wireless connection. I could not find any wireless connection at all. I am now using wired connection. Sony Vaio SZ series, Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN My software details are:
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
what is really a rant disguised as a question, but does anyone have this combination working? My NetGear router shows the connection as allowed from the MAC address in the router logs, And I can see the network I want to join in the list of visible networks from the laptop, but dmesg shows Ubuntu disconnecting with
WPA-PSK [TKIP] only: wlan0: disassociating by local choice (reason=15) WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] wlan0: disassociating by local choice (reason=3)
I'm sure there is a simple explantion that has been sufficiently buried somewhere but after several hours of googling and searching the forums here I can't find it. Anyone want to help out an old man RTFM?
I'm getting really disappointed here lately - things are getting worse, not better. In my case in particular I have this laptop with supposedly open and supported drivers and they don't work, however, the exact same distributuon on a Dell D830 with a broadcom NIC does. under 8.10 and 9.04 this worked out the box - just logged in, gave the PSK and away we went. I can't see the attachment I just uploaded so to include the information requested in the "how to get help" post, I'll put it all here inline...

I have been getting from my wireless adapter. This has been going on for quite some time but only now am I able to see a pattern. The behavior seems to be the following: Start up, connects to network and work fine until I suspend my machine. On wake up, it works again but after a seemingly random amount of time the connection is lost and I can no longer find any networks. Attached is dmesg output after startup and connecting to a wireless network (dmesgAfterConecting.txt) and the same after the connection has been lost (dmesgAfterConnectLost.txt). I get this error which seems important:
I upgraded the wireless card in my laptop (sony VAIO CW) due to the original Atheros being incurably slow.The new card is an Intel 6300 ultimate n. In Windows 7, after installing the relevant drivers everything worked without a hitch.In my Ubuntu 10.04 installation, however, I have been unable to get it working.Initially I had the compat-wireless modules installed (linux-backports-modules-wireless-generic), as I had done so to try and get the Atheros card working better. I tried removing all of these, and that made the difference that iwconfig now (instead of nothing) listed
I have a problem with the latest Fedora. Installed it cleanly on a machine with Gigabyte H55M-S2 with Intel Core i3. There seems to be no sound and I checked to see if anything is muted but is not. The manual says that the sound chip is ALC888B so this could be the first problem. Any ide how I can make it work? Here is a dump of some things on my system.

I've reinstalled Slackware 4 times today because of things I've messed up along my way, after upgrading the linux kernel I've had issues with getting back to desktop, so I'm on a clean slate right now with the exception of installing wicd. I need help since wireless is not working.. My wireless worked fine out of the box with Ubuntu,I don't understand why it is not working now... Using Slackware 13.1, Kernel 184.108.40.206
bash-4.1# ifconfig wlan0 up SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
My problem is that my sony vaio E-series (VPCEA36FA intel i5-560 4gb ram). The battery should stay at least 4 or 5 hours as i checked in windows platform but on ubuntu 10.10 it stayed only 3 hours now on 11.04 it stays only 2 hours !!! which really pisses me off, so is there any things i should know?? also the fan sometimes get so high i feel that the processor works on highest performance although am not using it that much.
I would like to install the new Ubuntu 11.04 64bit. I first booted from usb to see how the new release behaves on my laptop(sony vaio eb3m1e). The thing that does not work as it should is that the OS can't detect the GPU which is an ATI radeon 5650, when i click the additional drivers icon in order to install the proprietary drivers I only see the "no proprietary drivers are in use on this system". How can I make the OS detect the GPU?
Just bought one of these - [URL]. Installed 9.10 64bit, install went smoothly, but now having a few problems with graphics card drivers and sound. The system has a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 Graphics so I guess it's too new for a driver?
I have a problem with installing ubuntu 10.10 in my vaio cw. when I boot it , it doesn't show anything on my LCD but when I plug a monitor in , there would be an output. Also I have the same problem with 10.04 version.
I have the sony vaio vpc f12jfx/b laptop. I tried installing stable Lenny from the CD. I got it installed by I have no ethernet, wifi, nvidia driver, or touch pad. Found linux drivers for my Nvidia 330M [URL]. Still need ethernet, WiFi, and touch pad.
Intel wifi link 5100 not found on sony vaio backtrack 4 vmware I use vmware to load backtrack I have a sony vaio with 5100 AGN wifi card installed in it. I had tried anything to make my wifi work but always show no interface no wireless. I googled it for help for weeks and all i get was download the iwlwifi things and i already installed in it. i even tried many other thing
and everytime i type ifconfig it just show eth and lo and no wlan0 in it everytime i type airmon-ng there are no chipset interface and ...........thing (forgot) I could find my wireless card name when i type ilg... something i forgot The problem is,i think my linux doesn't reconize the card even i have installed the driver Anything that i can do to make my linux reconize wifi link 5100 agn wireless card?
My wireless connects and then in a few seconds disconnects and then again connects..... and so on. And even it seems to be connected I cannot reach any website. Could you please help me?
Below there are some information probably needed
1 ) Machine Brand and Model (PC/Laptop): Sony vaio VPCM13M1E (Netbook)
2 ) Wireless Brand, Model and Wireless Chipset: (I believe it should be one of these)01:00.0 Network controller: RaLink RT3090 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe 02:00.5 Ethernet controller: JMicron Technology Corp. JMC260 PCI Express Fast Ethernet Controller (rev 02)
3 ) check interface:
a) ifconfig wlan0 wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 90:fb:a6:fe:ce:3d
After wading through all of the bug reports filed regarding the Intel 4965 AG wireless adapter, trying various suggestions and not finding any solutions to my problem, I've finally decided to scrap the idea of actually being able to get my Toshiba laptop to connect reliably to my wireless network with Ubuntu 9.10. This wireless adapter worked absolutely flawlessly with 8.04 Hardy. I took the plunge once again this week and thought I'd try again to get 9.10 working on my laptop but it's a no go with the Intel wireless adapter (same problem with 9.04, it just doesn't work). You would think with newer versions of drivers and kernels that the same hardware that worked in a previous version, would continue working with newer versions.
Anyway, enough of my frustrated ranting... I need to find a replacement wireless adapter for my laptop that WORKS FLAWLESSLY with 9.10. When I say flawlessly, I mean you plug it in, boot up the laptop and it works all the time, every time. No fooling around with drivers etc... Either a PCMCIA or a USB wireless adapter that is currently available for purchase. I've waded through the sticky on the forum about which adapters are supposed to work, but I'm really hoping that someone here is using either a PCMCIA card or USB card and could please point me in the right direction. It's kind of funny, I purchase my Toshiba laptop because I read reviews here in the forum about how great it worked with Ubuntu 8.04. How all the hardware was recognized and worked out of the box. It did... with 8.04. Everything still works with 9.10 except the wireless.
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my new Sony Vaio series S but it does not recognize my wireless card (I think). The button is on, but the light does not turn on, and it does not detect the wireless card. The wireless card, an Intel Centrino Advanced -n 6205, does work in ubuntu and when I run the command: lshw -C network, it appears UNCLAIMED, that I think it means the drivers are not in the Ubuntu libraries. What can I do to make it work? I've been struggling but I cannot make it work.
Installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my Sony UX280p with Intel 4965 wireless. Ubuntu detects the card without issues (as far as I can tell). I can see all access points in my area and select my access point and pair with it. I get a DHCP address from the AP (if ifconfig is to be believed) and iwconfig shows the ESSID of my AP but I can't ping the AP or any other computer on the network, nor can I ping the sony from any other computer on my network. Last year I had installed 9.04 on this computer and wifi worked out of the box without any issues.
A few months back, my Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 stopped connecting to my wireless network after coming out of Suspend (it had worked fine previously). Wireless networking is simply disabled, and I have to reboot in order to get it back. I tried upgrading my OS from Intrepid all the way to Lucid, but the problem persisted. I also tried changing my 00sleep_module as suggested in this thread, but to no avail.
My wireless worked out of the box for the past few months. When I was running low on battery recently, I put the laptop to sleep. When I woke it up, there was a black screen with a flashing underscore. I pressed a bunch of buttons but nothing happened. Then suddenly it said something about a wireless hardware error and I did a hard reset by holding down the power button. When I turned the computer back on, wireless was greyed out. There's no hardware switch to enable and disable wireless and the software switch had no effect. I tried echoing into the 'state' of the adapter but it didn't let me. When I tried sudo ifconfig wlan0 up it gave me the following error:
I have finally got both video drivers working. Is it me or is the quality of the Intel drivers almost better than the nvidia? I will try something with hardware acceleration soon but the 2D (compiz etc) all works really well.
I am running openSUSE 11.3 updated with all the latest patches and I cannot connect to my wireless router. I am running Linux Mint 10 on the same type of notebook HP Compaq 6910p and it worked right after the install. If I take off the security WPA & WPA2 Personal I can connect. lspci -v | less shows this for my wireless card.
10:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN [Kedron] Network Connection (rev 61) Subsystem: Intel Corporation Device 1000 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 29 Memory at e4000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
I am using the same settings for both notebooks just can't figure out why openSUSE 11.3 won't connect. I get the prompt to key in my password, I've even checked the box to show password to make sure I was keying it in correctly. Everything was good but it just goes right back to the password prompt after it fails trying to connect.
Noob to Ubuntu here and I cannot access my wireless connection. It is working fine right now (wired) but I am using the TV stand as my computer desk right now so... not very practical. I tried following the "howto post a wireless issue (ticket)" but there was too much information for me to be able to put on here.
I have my SSID and my WEP. I am on Verizon DSL (only provider in my area). I tried using the wireless setting in network connections and I tried using DSL. I assumed that SSID+Password=Yay the internet works! but apparently not.
I'm using a Vaio TT, which seems to use an Intel 5100 WiFi chipset, and a Linksys WRT54G2 (firmwares 1.0.1 and 1.0.4), ubuntus 10.10 and 10.04.
Wifi works fine out of the box. However if the other vaio tt in our office (running windows 7) comes online, my laptop stops being able to make new connections. It WILL stay connected to chat servers, and downloads SOMETIMES continue to work. However all new HTTP requests / ssh connections / rdp connections / pings fail. The laptop still appears to be "connected" to the wifi network.
This may also happen after an undetermined amount of time without the extra vaio. It is not solved by reconnecting or rebooting. Once the extra vaio leaves the building, everything works fine again. This problem does not happen at all if I boot into windows.
I used to have an Ubuntu-Windows partition, but (what do you know?) Windows Crashed, and wouldn't boot anymore. So I reinstalled Windows, deleting my Ubuntu partition. Instead of reinstalling Ubuntu afterwards, I decided to give Debian a try. So here I am. I can't find drivers for my wireless network however, and it's quite annoying to have to plug in the Wired Connection with which I am writing this.
My main specs are: Sony Vaio VGN-CS390J Debian 5.04 AMd64
