Ubuntu Networking :: USB Wifi Card Not Recognized?
Jul 13, 2010
i just thought the last few days about trying Ubuntu. so i did. i got a nice and fresh copy of Ubuntu Desktop version and installed it, everything worked great except my wireless usb 2.0 card. the only internet connection i have under windows is Wifi and i hoped that my dongle will be recognized by Ubuntu automatically...(naturally, it wasn't the case.)
so my adapter looks exactly like this one here, except for the color, it's white and it has my WISP's name written on it (i got it from them, along with a cd that offers win xp/98/me drivers...)
so even everest sees it's atheros and it's the Atheros AR5523 chipset.
i also have windows 7 64bit drivers if they help...
anyway, i can't get it to work and cannot access the internet any other way when on Ubuntu, so i have to use an already-saved driver..
so I had to reinstall Ubuntu.But now my Wireless card won't work. It used to work before (plug and play), and I have no problem with it when I boot from the CD.I cannot use my cable connection because as soon as I plug my computer in, the network crashes, the router doesn't respond, gets hot and refuses to work until I unplug it and let it cool off for 2 minutes.I'm using Ubuntu 10.10, Desktop PC.

I have a problem to configure my wifi card, a dwa-110 from D-Link, it is not recognized when I launch System / network device control (only ethernet connections appear), and it is the same thing in Administration / network / network configuration. But if I launch administration / hardware / system devices, the last line is "Ralink 802.11 bg WLAN"... When I try to add in the window "network configuration" (from above) some new stuff, I specifying the kind of hardware (wireless) and when I have to enter the name of the card I don't see my card. On other OSes, I used ndiswrapper, but I wasn't able to install it on CentOS (dependencies required and it's hard with only a USB key to install the stuff...) How to see if the card is recognized, if I have to use ndiswrapper and so on. I have an internal PCI network card also, maybe it is this card which is recognized.
I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my IBM thinkpad a30p. now everything seems to work fine, except for the wifi card (edimax ew-7708il) i have. PCMCIA modules are loaded, but the card just doesn't appear in the network devices...
I'm a brand new user of Debian, and I just bought a (too much?) new laptop, the HP 430 G2. It seems to work great for almost everything, except that I don't have any wifi available.
I tried so many different things (without any success) that it would be hard to resume. But for now, all I have is a new installation (to avoid parasite installations of weird things), and a kernel updated to 3.16. I don't know if it's useful though...
The first element I notice is that I don't have the line with "Kernel driver in use...". Which seems to indicate that there's a problem with the kernel module (is that right?). But I don't know how to fix it...
The other thing that puzzles me with these last two commands is that according to this page, my wifi card is a Broadcom BCM43142. But it's not the result I get with the lspci command.
Anyway, I'm really lost, I don't know what to do, what to check, what to install. I don't want to go by random, testing all the different solutions I see on the web blindely. This is the reason why I ask it here.
get WIFI working on my Dell D600 with Ubuntu 11.04 freshly installed. I some limited sucched following the this post t=1621331 this got the card working but it was very very slow over 70% packet loss to the WIFIrouter. 1.

I am running (K)Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 64bit on a Dell Latitude E6400, WiFi Card Intel 5100. Never had any problems with networking. Up to about 2 weeks ago. I do realize there have been quite a few posts with this network adaptor, but non really described the problem I have here.
What happens is that suddenly the WiFi LED on the computer stops blinking, the WiFi connection gets disrupted, and the device is not recognized anymore when checking ifconfig. Only cold restarting the machine helps then... it will work for a while (between 1 and 20 minutes) and then crash again.
On Windows 7 the card works perfectly fine. With Ubuntu 11.04 in Live CD mode I have the same effects (connection crashes after a while). Also tried booting an older kernel, no success.
My exact hardware:
I notived the following problems in /var/log/kern.log
I've been having 2 issues with my internet connection on ubuntu for as long as I can remember, I've tried updates but they haven't seemed to work so great and am pretty fed up with this. So I have a Netgear wg111t wireless usb dongle which I got working through ndiswrapper. The 2 issues I am having are:
1. After a random period of time my internet just decides to disconnect, the strange thing is the bars at the top still say I'm connected. The only way to get the internet working again is to turn the pc off and on. Another way I have experienced this happening is usually when I'm downloading something off a torrent. 2. After restarting my pc the wifi usb isn't recognised and I can't connect to the internet.
I discovered that the wifi usb dongle i used for years went bad so i got an asus dongle that i cant get working.Might it be because my system is looking for my old one and the new one isnt being recognized? (e.g.wlan setting?)
I just installed and Ubuntu doesn't recognize my wireless card HP dv2945se. I can get a wired connection. I can't figure out what kind of card I have (did the terminal command line, have no idea how to read it) or how to install a driver for this OS (HP's site just lists drivers for Windows). How to get the wireless card recognized?
Someone had just given me a pc with no OS so I installed ubuntu 10.04. The pc has a wireless card but I cannot seem to get the OS to recognize it. My wired connect is fine but wireless is non-existent.
I have lucid installed on my hp laptop without any problems, and I went to install it on another hp but the I can't connect to any wireless network. I tried to follow this thread's advice [URL] . Because it's pretty much the same problem except I think the wireless card is from a different Intel family but it didn't work.
Basically wireless networks won't show up, in fact the network icon only has "wired" as a menu option.
I tried to follow the thread, even though I had no idea what it was saying as far as instruction goes.
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.
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04. The drive was formatted when I installed so it's 100% Ubuntu. The only major problem I have encountered is that Ubuntu will not recognize my SD cards. I really need to access these cards, all my film footage is on there. I think the internal SD card reader (If such a thing exists) would have been deleted during the installation process. I am a greenthumb to Ubuntu and have never used it before so I am rather stuck...
I see there is a driver module for network card in my system. I have 2 identical network cards in my system the 1st one works well, but the second one.. My system refuses to create interface on it.... lspci
Ubuntu 9.04 running on a Dell C640 with a Dell TrueMobile 1150 wireless card. Works perfectly under XP. Ubuntu can't find it. Wired networking finds the internet perfectly (though I'm still working on getting samba set up correctly for file/print sharing on my XP LAN).
I'm thinking I need a driver, maybe? Can't seem to locate one.
I have downloaded the driver installed it, and it works fine. But i can't get to turn it off. I do have the ability to unload the driver's kernel modules and the sysyem does not see my card after that. That's ok, but i'm thinking it still uses my battery power. The wifi led is always on no matter what i do. The fn+<wifi key> doesn't to anything.
i installed ubuntu on my friends laptop but when he tries to connect to his network and enters his wep key the box disappears for a few second and comes back again...The card is Atheros on a Toshiba laptop and it is detected , it finds the networks but the wep key is rejected every time without a error
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my old X30 alongside my fully working 8.04 and have strange wifi problems under 10.04 (under 8.04 it worked out of the box): - no available networks are shown - running "sudo iwlist scanning" results in "eth1 Interface doesn't support scanning : Device or resource busy" - without any wireless configuration from my side I get this: sudo iwconfig eth1 eth1 IEEE 802.11b ESSID:"gxC6isQxFFJxEC)xCDxBAxAB xF2xFBxE3F|xC2TxF8x1BxE8xE7x8DvZ.c3x9FxC 9x9A" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.467 GHz Access Point: None Bit Rate:11 Mb/s Sensitivity:1/0 Retry short limit:8 RTS thrff Fragment thrff Encryption keyff Power Managementff Link Quality=90/70 Signal level=-8 dBm Noise level=-147 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:63 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:1 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0 A very strange ESSID there appearing out of nowhere...
This is the issue, and I have had this happen with a few card readers. I have a Alfa Usb Wifi adapter model number AWUS036H using the rtl8187 Chipset. It works fine, unless I plug in my flash card reader directly to the board. If I plug it in to a hub it works fine until I put a card in, I was also having the same issues using a USB Video Capture unit by the name of EASYCAP. This was also happening in XP. Must be some driver conflict of sorts.
Im looking for a pci wifi card for my media pc, I would prefer wired, but we are moving soon , so i dont want to take the time to run a wire through the house. Im looking for one that will work out of the box with Ubuntu.
Reading recent posts, it seems that 11.04 has seriously screwed wifi. I have an Advent QRC430 laptop which worked perfectly until I upgraded to Natty. Now wifi is broken. The wifi driver is rt73usb. When I run lspci in terminal, no wifi card is listed. Running rfkill shows wifi hard blocked, but the switch on laptop makes no difference. I've installed and run Hardware Lister - this shows wireless interface "has been disabled"
i m using backtrack 4 in vmware.i want to use my laptop in built wireless card to search for the near by wifi access point which it is not doing,, my wifi card is " Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection"
