Ubuntu Networking :: Toshiba Satellite A215 Not Seeing Wifi Networks?

May 3, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 - 64bit install with an A215. The wifi was working fine until today. Ubuntu seems to detect the hardware, and it shows the interface as being 'up', however no networks show up in either the network manager or 'sudo iwlist scan'. I'm not sure if it's a driver issue, or if the hardware itself died.Here is the output of lspci:

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ lspci

Fedora :: No Wireless On Toshiba Satellite A215-s7437?

Jul 20, 2010

F13: wireless is disabled - running lspci shows a realtek ethernet 8101/8102 - the wired ethernet works fine but not the wireless. Have searched google but they say the realtek drivers should be in the kernel since 2008.are there other commands that can be typed to try to enable the wireless ?

Ubuntu Networking :: No Networks Lucid Toshiba Satellite-L650-11F

I just installed lucid in my laptop (Toshiba Satellite L-650) and no networks are available. I cannot connect to the wireless network. Therefore I tried to connect with a cable directly from the router (and this works in a different computer with windows), but no networks were available either. Here is some information.

I'm having a problem in stalling Ubuntu 9.10 on my Toshiba Satellite. The odd thing is i can install it on VMware but I con not get it to install on the hard drive it's self. I've tried Ubuntu 10.4 as well and they both begin the process but as soon as I reach the, select your time zone, page and select my zone the whole computer freezes. Can someone tell me if they have run into this problem as well or if it is a problem with this particular Toshiba machine?

Ubuntu Networking :: Toshiba Satellite A100 Not Connecting To Wireless

Nov 28, 2010

I've been having a lot of trouble connecting to my Wireless Router. It worked fine when I had XP on it, so it's not the actual inbuilt WLAN. I put in the correct password, it's MAC address is registered on the router, yet it will constantly query me for a password despite it being put in correctly. I've tried searching the forums for any similar issues, and their concurrent fixes.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect On Toshiba Satellite M645 With Intel 802.11 A/g/n Wireless LAN

Jan 25, 2011

I cant seem to understand what happens to my wifi networking, i just installed ubuntu 10.10 today (completely erasing windows) on my toshiba satellite m645. Seems like my wireless card (the specs say its intel 802.11a/g/n wireless LAN) will only randomly detect the available networks or will connect only for a few seconds just after i just turned it on, then it will disconnect.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Enable Realtek Wireless On Toshiba Satellite Pro L500 In 11.04

May 12, 2011

I have just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my brother's Toshiba Satellite Pro L500 and have spent all day trying to get the wireless to work.

the laptop does not have a physical wifi-switch (it should switch on-off with Fn+F8, which doesn't work), the drivers seem to be installed, but I cannot 'enable wireless', and I found that it is 'Hard blocked':

sudo rfkill list all :

0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: yes
but 'rfkill unblock all' does nothing.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To AP Causes Crash On Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5138?

Jul 15, 2011

When I'm running Ubuntu everything seems to work perfectly until I try to connect to a wireless network. My wireless card supposedly works out of the box because I can scan for wireless networks without a problem. The only time it becomes a problem is when I try to connect to a wireless network. Doing so causes my computer to freeze, requiring a hard-restart. I disabled the driver that comes with Ubuntu, and installed ndiswrapper with my card's corresponding windows driver. As soon as I modprobe'd ndiswrapper, my computer froze as it did before and required a hard restart. This was about a month ago, and since then I have tried OpenSUSE and Fedora, but these distros also did the same thing. I eventually gave up and installed Windows 7 and everything works perfectly. However, I'm now growing tired of using Windows. (I do a lot of linux server administration, and it's much nicer to do from a linux machine.) I would very much like to try to get Ubuntu working on this laptop again. Does anyone know what the solution may be?

EDIT: If you are experiencing the same problem, DISABLE your PCI LAN card in your BIOS. Wireless should work fine. Seems that the LAN and WLAN card have a similar ID or something and linux confuses the two, so disabling LAN card solves the issue of not being able to use the wireless.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Install 10.04 64 Bit On Toshiba Satellite

May 9, 2010

I have dell B130 with Ubuntu Karmic on it, and I like it. I recently purchased a new laptop, a Toshiba Satellite A505-S6033. I've been trying for about 24 hours to get Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit on this computer, but to no avail. I've seen some people say that they get error messages. When the cd loads up, it comes to the main page (run ubuntu off disk, install ubuntu, check for errors, etc.) Anyway, when I click to run it off the disk, the scren goes blank. The CD spins, but nothing happens from then on. I've tried a 32 bit version of Ubuntu 10.04, but the same thing happens. Just for experimentation, I tried xPud on it, and xpud works fine.

Jan 3, 2010

I have previous used Ubuntu for a week, literally, on Thinkpad. Now, I got a laptop from my sister which is Toshiba Satelite A135-S4527 with Vista installed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install Toshiba Satellite E205

Feb 25, 2010

I've been trying to figure this out all day, I just got a new Toshiba Satellite E205, and I can't install ubuntu or any other linux os out there that I have tried so far. I've read a lot of things on the forms about changing out the different options but nothing I've tried worked such as graffic safe mode, deleting the quite and whatever the other command was off the end. The closest I've got was when I tried with Debian in text mode I could at least see what was happening, and according to that it can't find my dvd-rom I checked the dev but I can't find it either. So any help what so ever would be appreciated, I really don't want to be stuck with windows 7!BTW, it comes with the following: intel graphics media accelerator HD ACPI x64 DVDRAM ga10f

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Audio Toshiba Satellite P100, 10.04?

May 9, 2010

I have a Toshiba Satellite P100-ST9212.reviously it had Windows XP installed and everything worked. Yesterday I installed Ubuntu 10.04 and the installation went smoothly (video, wireless, usb, etc) and I did all the suggested updates. However there is no audio being emitted. All visual and BIOS indications are that the audio should be enabled and working. I have version 4.20 of the BIOSI looked at this forum before submitting this and found general steps to test for.The following steps all succeeded

aplay -l
lspci -v
sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel

The next steps discuss getting fresh ALSA drivers from kernel but this implies that it once worked on a previous Ubuntu install which is not true in my case. So rather than chasing down this potential wild goose I thought I would post this specificestion and see if anyone has seen and better yet knows how to fix this.

Ubuntu :: Get Resolution To Be 1024x768 On Toshiba Satellite Laptop

Jul 3, 2010

I have recently installed Ubuntu on my Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 Laptop. Everything runs great except that the resolution will not go above 800x600. I had this problem before on the same laptop and was able to fix it but cannot find the fix now (I had to wipe my laptop clean in order to remove some pesky Windows partitions and reinstall Ubuntu) I have found several "fixes" but none work. I tried the one below as well as it applies almost perfectly to my problem

"I just installed the latest ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba-Tecra having "Trident Microsystems Cyberblade XP4m32" Monitor. After install resolution is defaulted to 800x600. I followed a method advised in some threads (arount xrandr and cvt) to increase the size (my laptop works with 1024x768 under XP). This was done OK and I obtained the resolution 1024X768 appearing in the drop list resolution options of the Monitor preferences but when I select the option if fails. Alternatively, when I execute $ xrandr --output default --mode 1024x768_60.00 i got the message "xrandr : screen cannot be larger than 800x600 (desired size 1024X76

I also saw a possible fix proposing to add "HorizSync 31.50-48.00" in Xorg.conf but I then I DO NOT have such a file in my /etc/x11/ after ubuntu install (supposing that this will fix my problem !!!)

Boot into recovery mode, when you get to the command line type:

sudo Xorg -configurewhich will create a default /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Add the lines:
HorizSync 31.0 - 70.0
VertRefresh 40.0 - 75.0to the Monitor section then reboot."

However when I entered the "sudo Xorg -configure" line my computer spit back saying that "sudo" is not an acceptable command

Ubuntu Installation :: Toshiba Satellite T230 -01Y Won't Start GDM

Dec 20, 2010

I'm having a bit of difficulty installing Ubuntu on a Toshiba Sattelite T230 -01Y. Note: if any particulars about this machine are required, I'll be happy to add them. This laptop does not have an optical drive: no DVD, no CD-ROM. I used a USB memory RAM stick (4Gb) upon which I've installed Maverick through System > Administration > Startup Disk Creator. The installation seems to work well. I cut the hard disk (roughly 250 Gb) into 3 partitions: 20 Gb for the system, 2 Gb for Swap, the remainder for /home. The whole setup works as it would on any other PC. Once the setup is complete and the system reboots, it never actually seems to get GDM going. I'm left at a command prompt login. If I leave it long enough (a few seconds), I get a listing that appears over the login prompt, spewing info at me. It sort of resembles the following:

[ 29.296206] rtl8192_SetWirelessMode(), wireless_mode:10, bEnableHT = 1
[ random number] ====>rtl8192_set_chan_()====ch:1

and ch:2, ch:3 to ch:13. Eventually, regardless whether I use the keyboard or not, some kind of screensaver sets in and I can't see any more input-output.If I hit the power button, oddly: the background goes purple displaying CLI characters momentarily, notifying me that the system's going to halt... and the system halts.Any way I can get this going? Do I require the Optical Drive instead of using USB to install the system? I'm afraid all NTFS partitions have been wiped away as the client insisted they wanted nothing to do with Microsoft products.Note: when installing I ask it not to update during the installation as I've had poor results with that. If you feel I should give that a try, I will.

Ubuntu Installation :: Toshiba Satellite L675D Incompatible With 2.6.35-22 Kernel?

Oct 24, 2010

I have two brand new (less than 60 days old) Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7016. Neither will boot the live CD of 10.10-64, but the CDs work in other computers and I have installed successfully half a dozen times off of them. I get the initial text across the top, there is a momentary splash of the Ubuntu logo with a little battery symbol, then the screen goes black with a little flashing prompt in the upper left. That is all it will do until I hard reboot it. I made the USB boot off the CD and tried that. It never gets beyond the initial text "syslinux 3.82 2009-06-09 EBIOS ..etc".

I re-installed 10.04, replacing 10.10 and everything works fine on both laptops. Several hours later (something really needs to be done about how long it takes to upgrade) when the new upgrade is complete, it will no longer boot. Of course the default GRUB menu choice is 2.6.35-22. I assume this is the kernel number. If I pick 2.6.32-25 it boots just fine and "about" says that I am running 10.10, so I am just baffled. I know how to set GRUB to boot of this option by default, but i would like to fix the problem, not put a band-aid on it.

In case someone else has this model, it uses an audio chipset I have not seen. Win 7 reports it as "Realtek High Def audio" AND "ATI HDMI Audio". Ubuntu lists two, one generic Internal Audio, the other RS880 audio device[Radeon HD 4200]. What makes it odd is that if you want to use the head phone jack to connect to an external sound system, you have to turn it on with software inside Windows. In Ubuntu, there is no corresponding software so when you plug something in, the internal speakers turn off, but nothing comes out of the headphone jack.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Headaches On Toshiba Satellite Pro L510?

Oct 29, 2010

Today I bought a Toshiba Satellite Pro L510 and after much screwing around I have Ubuntu installed kinda. Installing Ubuntu is generally a breeze and I have three machines running 8.04 pretty much rock solid unless I fiddle with 'em, but; I download and boot from a 10.04 LTS cd and gets to the new purpley splash with a couple of icons down the bottom, then goes into endless full-screen terminal scrolling and the computer heats up. So I tried 8.04. Not much different. I try 10.10; same as 10.04 LTS. So I try the alternate installer rather than desktop but that crashes too. I finally find a website suggesting to run the alternate installer, hit F4 and choose 'failsafe graphics' (which wasn't there for me) and then F6 and select everything but 'Free Software Only'. Hey, worked and I get through the text based installer no problem, restart and I'm looking at a grub2 menu and can select Windows 7 or Ubuntu. Cool.

So I select Ubuntu but goes to a text based, command line Ubuntu. Hasn't loaded a desktop. I try to 'sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop' from the CD but after much scrolling tells me not there. It is telling me I have umpteen updates I should get and asking me to insert the CD, which is fine as the machine is not online, but then can't find what it's looking for.

So I've gotten this far. My router is not set as a DHCP server; all machines have static IPs which is why this new one is not online. Would the simple answer be to plug it directly into the internet gateway router and do the updates from there, ubuntu-desktop included?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Toshiba Satellite P200 Overheating?

Jun 10, 2011

i recently installed ubuntu 11.04 on my toshiba satellite p200-1k8 laptop; with ubuntu the fans were always running at full blast and the laptop would overheat and shut down even though i wasn't using the computer for anything intensive, e.g.just browsing videos. i installed opensuse thinking the problem might have been with ubuntu but in suse as well the fans seem to be running full blast right from start up and the laptop getting quite hot. i've now learnt this is a generic problem with toshiba satellite laptops and linux, something to do with acpi and possibly the ati graphics cards? my gpu is an ati mobility radeon 2600 if thats any help. in windows (which i was last using two days ago) the fans and heat from the laptop were nowhere near this noticeable and i didn't experience this overheating problem just browsing the web.

could anyone recommend any fixes to better the heat management of my laptop on linux (apart from cleaning the fan which i've already tried )?
