Ubuntu Networking :: USB Wifi Adapter Works But No Browsing?

Dec 19, 2010

HPG62-144DX notebook, Windows 7 and considering Ubuntu. I installed 10.10 and tried to get my wifi running but that wouldn't work. I had a connection only sometimes and it broke up after 5 minutes. Once I got a webpage but annoyingly slooow. Got the advice to update drivers and stuff. But the wifi connection is the only one I have...

Went back to 10.4 32-bit. Booted from CD and will keep it that way until this is sorted out. Now I see my wifi hotspots directly and I have no problem to establish a connection. The icon shows 3 bars quality. Network Tools says: Wlan1 = Realtek, Transmitted bytes xxx Received bytes yyy, no errors, link speed = 1Mbps, State = active. Looks good!

The only minor thing here is that enabling/disabling my internal Atheros antanna also enables/disables my Alfa USB Wifi adapter (based on Realtek 8187) but who cares. A bigger problem is: when I start Firefox it doesn't come up with a webpage. It just keeps on saying: "loading". At the bottom of the screen it keeps saying "Looking up" for ages. Nothing further.

Ubuntu Networking :: WiFi Adapter Works With Desktop - New Alternate Install Can't Find It

Mar 27, 2011

I have a USB WiFi adapter that my Ubuntu desktop install (10.10) automatically detects, and it works great. I just used the alternate installer to set up an old box as a server, and it doesn't install the driver for the adapter. lsusb finds the adapter, but I don't get a wlan* listed in /dev/. how I can determine what module(s) are used to run this adapter on the desktop so I can load them on the older box? Or is there some package I should install from the CD to help auto-detect the adapter?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: USB Wifi Adapter Works When Connected Directly But It Doesn't With Cable

Jun 4, 2010

I am using this usb wifi adapter, it uses zd1211rw and it works fine if I connect it directly to the usb port, but if I add a cable (around 5mts) between the usb port and the usb plug, the device doesn't appear (I used iwconfig to check). The green light on the wifi adapter turns on but it doesn't blink like it does when connecting it directly without the cable. What could be happening?

I use the same cable + usb wifi adapter in windows, and it works fine, I can scan and connect without problems. When I use the cable, lsusb doesn't show the device neither, it does when connecting the adapter directly.

Ubuntu Networking :: Install Usb Wifi Adapter

May 28, 2010

I started yesterday off wanting to install this USB wifi adapter on my PC (which is mini-itx so has additional pci slots) [URL] it has the Ralink 3070 chipset. I tried everything I found when googling, nothing came close to working, this was in Fedora12. So I gave up and installed Ununtu 10.04, hoping for better luck there. Ubuntu will recognise the presence of a wifi adapter, here's the output from iwconfig

[Code]....

But it sees no wifi networks and generally won't do anything; I don't think it has the right driver. Rosewill does list a (linux) driver and so does Ralink, but again, neither of these come close to working. has anyone gotten this adapter or chipset to work in ubuntu?

Ubuntu Networking :: Determine What Wifi Adapter It Will Use When There Are More Than One?

Jul 14, 2011

My laptop has an internal wireless g "adapter" (for lack of a better word) and I plugged in a very cheap and very small ASUS wireless N adapter later on. The ASUS adapter has better bandwidth (again for lack of a better word) but isn't as high quality of a link as the internal adapter is.The laptop appears to be using the internal adapter, but i want it to use the ASUS adapter.

Oct 23, 2010

I've just upgraded my old laptop from xubuntu to ubuntu 10.10 and I have some connectivity problems with my usb adapter Netgear WG111v3.

I have another laptop currently running on ubuntu 10.04 and it has no problems at all (however it has an internal usb card).

Okay I've got a Netgear N-150 WNA 1100 USB WiFi adapter, it doesn't work in Ubuntu it's not supported. There should be a way to make it work with ndiswrapper. I tried and failed before and due to other non related circumstances I had to reinstall Ubuntu. What are the steps to install ndiswrapper and it's dependency's on a fresh Ubuntu installation that cannot connect to the internet.

Fedora Networking :: USB WiFi-N Adapter Disconnects Fc14 64-bit

Nov 27, 2010

After a new fresh-from-DVD install of Fedora 14 64-bit (over top of Fedora 12 64-bit which went over top of Fedora 10 64-bit before that) my Linksys WUSB600N adapter connects at login to my WiFi N router with WPA2 Personal.

That is great, as previously (fc10/12) I had to use the Ralink drivers per ogetbilo's thread on this forum (that thread kept me on the net for many years now). And at some point this even became a pain because sometimes the system would boot and refuse to connect to the wireless (which would hang trying to connect) and then crash to a dump screen on shutdown (bug reported). The fix was hoped to be found in upgrading to F14 and the newer kernels with working native Ralink chip support.

But I still have an issue... the connection stays up for a few minutes then drops. If I disable/re-enable wireless it (at least sometimes) re-connects. But obviously that is not workable. This is a USB adapter and I am not entirely sure that there is not some USB powersave issue going on, but I do not see anywhere to disable system USB power saving either.

Networking :: Trouble With A Broadcom B4311 Rev 1 WiFi Adapter

Jun 19, 2011

i have a broadcom BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01) wireless adapter on a dell 1501 run by ubuntu 10.10.this particular model and revision is suppose to be absolutely supported by linux and indeed it did work perfectly before the user ran a upgrade from ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04.subsequently i have reinstalled 10.10. as i recall when i installed ubuntu 10.10 the first time i simply ran the System>Admin>Additional Driver installation tool to make the wireless work. i cannot recall if i ran the b43 or the sta driver but i have tried both this time and had no luck.

i am aware that the broadcom adapters are notoriously troublesome and i have tried the two workarounds here URL... as well as their third alternate workaround with no success.

Ubuntu Networking :: WiFi Only Works Intermittantly

Dec 29, 2010

After upgrading to Ubuntu 10.10, I've had difficulties with my wireless connection. It will work for a few hours just fine, then suddenly disconnect and try to ask for my password several times before giving up. It's not the network--another computer on a different OS is having no such problems. Also, my wired ethernet connection works with absolutely no problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Only Works Once After Install?

Jun 12, 2011

just joined the forum so I am a little lost. I am trying to get my wifi to work on an HP Pavilion tx 1115nr (tx1000 series). I am using Ubuntu 10.04 desktop, my network card is BCM4311 rev1.I have read many threads and tried about everything, but I am so close. I can load bcmwl-kernel-source from the software center, restart and my wifi works for that startup. If I restart my computer again, it no longer works. I can then remove bcmwl-kernel-source and reinstall it and it works just once again.I have blacklisted b43 and ssblsmod reveals that these modules are missing after restart when wifi doesn't work:

arc4
lib80211
lib80211_crypt_tkip

Ubuntu Networking :: TP-Link Wifi USB Adapter: Cannot Setup It In Master Mode To Use PC As A Router

Jun 10, 2010

I got two issues with my wifi usb adapter:

1) it cannot see any networks around
2) i cannot setup it in master mode to use my PC as a router

As far as i can see, the device is recognized and the correct driver (rt73usb) is loaded. I was able to connect to a laptop somehow (the laptop could see other networks and the adapter's PC-to-PC network). I'd like to make it work as a router, i.e. share my internet connection (eth0) via wlan0. Here is what i have:

Code:
Ubuntu 10.04
Linux 2.6.32-22-generic #36-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 3 19:31:57 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Ubuntu Networking :: PPTP Works Over Wifi But Not USB Modem

Feb 19, 2010

I am running 64-bit 9.10 on a Acer Aspire 1810T. I can connect to the internet via both wifi and the Novatel U998 modem. I have a PPTP VPN that works correctly via wifi, but does not work via the modem. The obvious problem would be that the ISP is doing something... but I'm dual booting Windows 7, and the ISP's Windows based software is able to connect to the VPN without issue.

I'm running VMWare player to be able to access my required Windows apps, so I'm almost in a position to dump MS if I can get this VPN issue resolved.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Works But No Internet Only On (10.04) Side

Oct 24, 2010

Wifi Works, but No internet When I'm directly connected to the Wifi router, via LAN cable, I have internet (this is how I'm posting now) I have a desktop computer, this is also the same problem. Because of this it hasn't updated to 10.04 yet. Its still at the version previous (9.??). Might be relevant. This problem began when my wife's Mac had an update that killed her Wifi access, and we had to reset the Wifi Router. She didn't change anything, we just re-inputed all the data as before (passwords, ID). Since then I can't access my internet even if I can connect to the wifi.

Other Observations In the office, my Laptop's ubuntu side has no problems with accessing Internet through the wifi. My Windows side is unaffected (both Desktop and Laptop). One time I can connect, but when that happened on that same day she can't. Possibly a fluke or coincidence. I read the post of a similar matter, where the person's Empathy still works. when I tried check if that was the case with me, after getting my Empathy to work it began to work again. But this hasn't worked in a succeeding attempt. Below is my system information if it may be relevant.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Browsing Hangs - But Everything Works - Did Not Happen On 9.10

Aug 10, 2010

Its on an older laptop, a Toshiba Sattelite M50-252. A friend of mine had this laying around, and it wasn't running windows very well. So I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on it and it was performing decently enough for browsing and mailing.

On Ubuntu 9.10 there was a problem sending large images for printing. It would make the printer (A brother HL-4050 CDN, placed on the network) say out-of-memory. Same print job from windows would not make this error. Upgrading the system to Ubuntu 10.04 worked.

Actually, I had before tried 10.04 on the machine but ended up formatting and reinstalling 9.10. This was because browsing on 10.04, no matter what browser, would simply hang randomly. A search on google could be performed, and some pages loaded. But some pages didn't load at all or only a few % of them, and the browser would just claim to be "resolving host".

On 9.10, on all 3 installs i've done on the machine, this problem was NOT to be found.

Here goes the real issue: 4 days ago I installed 10.04 to test again(6 months after its release, lots of updates has been done), and browsing worked great. The laptop has been used a lot since then and now yesterday it started stalling again. The most interesting thing is that APT-GET works fine. New software downloads with a snap. Also WGET with a single file works (although it seems to hang at the resolve once in a while).

Why on earth did it suddenly start to behave like this? Nobody with even the knowledge of using SUDO has been using the machine and it has been used ONLY for browsing. Automatic updates are disabled as well. Even weirder, this happens both using the wireless network card and cable.

I have no idea whats going on. Ubuntu 9.10 works always. 10.04 worked the second time (after a few months of updates) but started stalling after a few days. The system itself runs perfectly well, and there is nothing wrong with apt-get and so on as i said.

Ubuntu Networking :: WiFi Setup (STA Only Works From Disc In Demo)

Mar 30, 2010

I have installed and un-installed 3 different versions of Ubuntu. My fourth is a re-install of v9.10. During all these installs I have had difficulty getting my wifi to work. During my last install I left the ISO in the drive by mistake so when the system rebooted it loaded from the disc in demo.... This was interesting because in the demo the program manager showed 2 drives for wireless, 1 Broadcom STA and 2 Broadcom b43xx. I tried loading the STA and it worked! (sorry it could have been the b43xx, for the time being it's insignificant) Upon my excitement I restarted the computer and removed the disk went to my Ubuntu set up and ...what the Broadcom choices weren't there Why?

Now I am running Win 7 Home 32bit on my main drive and have Ubuntu loaded on its own drive. I have a Netgear WN311b wireless N card installed. Again my confusion is why it worked in demo (off the cd) but doesn't from full install. I read on the web to try inserting my supplied disc from Netgear and then search program manager. It now showed the two for-mentioned Broadcom programs, but this time wouldn't install them. On the b43 I got an error message and on the STA it searched extracting and loading this continued for a 1/2 hour with no progression. I couldn't close the PM or the extracting and loading box, so I had to restart the computer.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Status Only Works As Root With New Router?

Jul 27, 2010

I recently bought a new wireless router (Cisco E1000) to use in my house. The E1000 supports mixed-mode 802.11n/g/b, which is what I have enabled. It is the first 802.11n router I've had. My netbook (an HP/Compaq Mini 110) only supports b/g. When connected to this new router, I can only see my status as root. NetworkManager shows a little red exclamation point, and 'iwconfig' shows nothing. It's missing in the 'iwlist scanning' list. Even still, I'm connected and can do everything just fine. However, everything shows up fine when I run 'sudo iwconfig' or 'sudo iwlist scanning'. These have always worked as a standard user before.
