Ubuntu Networking :: WPA Wireless Stopped Working After Recent Update?
Sep 4, 2010
I have an EEE 1000 that successfully connected to WPA networks until yesterday. I tried re-installing the RT2860 drivers that had been previously modified and did not have success.
Additionally, I just installed 10.04 on a Gateway laptop that's a few years old. It immediately connected to the WPA network and I ran the updater. Lo and behold, after updating it no longer connects to the network.
Like many others it seems, my wireless has stopped working since a recent upgrade The answer does not lie in analysis of logs, settings etc. but surely with those who did it - they should provide a fix. I cannot believe everyone expects each individual users to go into their own analysis of why this is no longer working as it is clearly widespread. I have been using Ubuntu for 18 months without this problem on the same dual-boot laptop, and it still works on Windows as before, only Ubuntu 10.4 has recently stopped my network card from working.
I need to know when this will be fixed. I have been embarrassed by promoting Ubuntu to many colleagues who now also cannot work at home on their wireless networks. Seriously disillusioned I may start looking for a more stable alternative to Windows.
Firefox 3.6 "Namoroka" stopped working after a recent update. Clicking on my panel launcher or the launcher in the applications menu does nothing. I even tried starting Firefox from the terminal and got an error message: "(firefox-bin:3592): GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times", whatever that means.I would be willing to rip out Firefox and start all over again but I don't know how to remove the 3.6 version. I couldn't find a method in the Software Center for doing that graphically.
after a recent update my policykit permissions stopped working, and I can't understand why.An example: mounting a flash drive requires password, hinting on rg.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount. /usr/share/polkit-/actions/org.freedesktop.udisks.policy has the following:
Code: <action id="org.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount"> <description>Mount a device</description>
Well, I have an issue with my wireless card in Ubuntu 10.04, my wireless card model is: the D-Link WIRELESS N 150 DESKTOP ADAPTER DWA-525. I was already successful getting it to work by using the RaLink driver suggested here and following the instructions in their readme.But after a system update I performed through Update Manager (in which I guess the kernel was updated), the device stopped working completely. The wireless icon remains(in the top panel), but it displays a red exclamation mark next to it
I have an HP a670y desktop computer using the included wireless antenna (looks like a big Sorry game piece). I am running Ubuntu 10.04 x64 dual booted with Windows Vista x64. I haven't had internet for a while but just got it today and decided to do some updating in both Windows and Ubuntu. It had detected my router and I copied and pasted the WEP key then it asked for my password, but my keyboard wasn't connected so I clicked cancel for the password window and it connected anyway.
I opened the Synaptic package manager and started downloading some updates while I did some browsing on the internet. I had restarted my computer when the updates were done and it asked again for my WEP key. I copied and pasted just as I did before and entered my password and after it tried to connect it asked for my password again. I thought maybe the internet was down so I decided to boot up Windows and it connected right away. I wonder if one of my updates messed something up. Has anyone else had this happen?
i have a dell 1501 that has been upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04. everything was working okay. and then the user ran an upgrade recently. subsequently the wifi has mysteriously stopped working. it connects okay if one plugs it directly into the router but the wifi seems to have just stopped working.my mini 9 connects fine to the netgear wifi router using wireless.when i run the system tests for networking i get the errors..."root could not find def gateway info /proc""root could not find default gateway by running route"here is the output from some diagnostic commands.NOTE:this is similar to a post titled "wi-fi dead?" but the output is not quite the same...
lauren@lauren-Inspiron-1501:~$ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions.
This sux cause im new to ubuntu and it was working great on my laptop but after a recent update the wireless (wifi) connection just dies after 1 minute. The connection is still active, the icon shows full signal, nothing seems wrong at all, but there is no internet communication at all.
If I disconnect and reconnect I get proper internet comms for another minute, then it goes dead again!
This all started after a recent series of updates.
Dual boot Vista (original factory installation) ubuntu added 2nd All the latest kernals and non-beta releases as of 02/18/2011
I was almost ready to go all ubuntu, but I had to log back into vista to get internet to try and find help. ubuntu has been like this for weeks, but i havent had the time to try and find out what screwed the pooch on my wireless....
I have ubuntu 10.04. After update I performed yesterday, I could no longer access from other computers shared folders on my ubuntu machine. I checked update history and it included the following that appeared to be related to network shares:
Code: libsmbclient (2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3.4) to 2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3.7 libpam-smbpass (2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3.4) to 2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3.7 samba (2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3.4) to 2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3.7 samba-common (2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3.4) to 2:3.4.7~dfsg-1ubuntu3.7
I would prefer to use the latest version because it includes security updates. Does anyone know if there's some trick to getting network shares to work with the latest version of libsmbclient?
my system stopped booting after recent update.When I select desktop it goes to splash screen an dies.Have to hit reset key.If I select nomodeset it boots fine excepts graphic resolution is 1280x1024 instead of 1680x1050.System is sandy bridge, Asus P8H67-M EVO, Intel Graphics enabled no other grapics cards, Suse 11.4 64 bit.I do my updates with zypper up.
When originally installing 11.04 I had problems getting my Ralink 5390 wireless card to work.
Today my computer froze completely and I had to turn it off via the power switch. When I turned it back on, wireless was no longer recognized! My iPod can connect to the network just fine, so it must be an Ubuntu problem. There are no problems with my ethernet connection either.
I researched this and found several threads about blocking and unblocking wireless devices using the rfkill command. Well, unfortunately for me the rfkill command doesn't work. When I type sudo rfkill list or sudo rfkill unblock all, nothing happens; it just returns me to my bash prompt. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling rfkill...nothing.
OpenSuSE 11.1 updated on Saturday to all of the latest patches and stuff. I was a bit behind, so quite a few things got updated. Most of them probably don't matter for this problem.
Prior to Saturday, desktop effects were working fine. After, they don't. Gnome still works ok, but attempting to go in to the "Desktop Effects" configuration just hangs for a minute (spinning "wheel" cursor) then nothing happens ("arrow" cursor returns).
Looking at things via "ps ax" I can see that clicking on "Desktop Effects" starts process(/usr/bin/python /usr/bin/simple-ccsm).
Running this from a CLI produces:
After which nothing happens and I have to hunt down the PID and kill it.
Searching for this "tuple index out of range" error, I found a couple of 2008 references, but those are for much older version so I'm thinking that they're probably not relevant. Nothing else seems to apply.
I've been running ubuntu on my Asus 1001ha netbook for half a year or so. I ran Karmic for at while, wifi working and all, accepted the recommended updates when Update Manager popped up and everything was fine until one day I let Update Manager do it's thing and my wifi stopped working.. Lycid had just come out that same week, so I thought "screw it" and installed 10.04 instead..
So I've been running 10.04 for a couple of months now, everything working fine, including the wifi - until today.. Update Manager suggested some upgrades, I accepted and *pouf* my wifi is gone again..
That's the second time Update Manager knocks out my wifi, any way to roll back todays update or how to the the wifi working again?
pulled the wireless USB adapter out of the back of my laptop when I was using it. I plugged it back in and it can see my wireless network, but it can't connect. Everytime it tries, it just shows the connecting icon on the top bar for a few minutes and then says that the network has been disconnected.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the USB adaptor, but nothing I've done seems able to fix the issue. Anyone know how to fix this?
I have had ubuntu about a month now and everything has worked great up until now, I was surfing the web and all the sudden I lost connection. I tried to connect to the signal but got nothing so I did a reboot. After the reboot my wireless signal didn't show up. i right clicked the connection icon on the top taskbar and the enable wireless is blacked out to where i cant click it.
Just recently the wireless stopped working on Ubuntu 10.04. The machine is AcerOne AOA-150. I did notice recently the wireless would stop working, and I would need to either 1) reboot 2) switch the wireless off by moving the switch from left to right in front of the laptop.
However, this time nothing is working. I've provided some detail and if more information is needed, let me know.
I have a Lenovo IdeaPad s10 which worked flawlessly with wired, I could never get it to so much as search for a wireless network, so I gave up on it long ago.
I'm using UNR 9.10 on it and today, after updating Wicd Network Manager stopped working making it impossible for me to go online with the netbook even when using a wired connection.
I restarted the computer after the update and once UNR booted up wicd wanted root access to use my computer's network cards, I entered my password, this never happened before but whatever, unfortunately after I entered my password wicd didn't show up in the tray and sure enough there was no internet connection whatsoever.
I tried running wicd manually, UNR says opening, but nothing comes up, no tray icon no nothing.
After upgrading to the latest Ubuntu, my wireless card stopped working. I keep on pressing the button but the little orange light wont come on...I have an aspire 5517 with "Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)" I have tried drpjkurian's tutorial for madwifi with no success . (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1309072
I updated to 10.04 recently and everyhting worked fine. Yesterday my wireless stopped working. Now I just get "Networking disabled" when I mouse over the greyed out wireless icon. Everything still works fine when I boot windows.
Here's the details from the HOWTO log an wireless issue guide http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6183681 . sorry for the length of dmesg and lsmod , I couldn't figure out how to add a spoiler tag on this forum. code...
About a week ago I upgraded to Maverick from Lucid.
All networking worked fine on Lucid.
I am using an Acer Laptop with the Atheros AR928X Wireless Network Adapter.
I can connect to my home network (visible, with WPA2-Personal) fine. However, I cannot connect to my university's wireless network. The only difference I noticed is that its network is using WPA2 Entreprise with Tunneled TLS Authentication and MSCHAPv2.
I have a HP Mini 5105 SSD netbook, runing Ubuntu 10.10 with 2Gb RAM. My wireless card is a Broadcom BCM43224 802.11a/b/g/n. Its driver is enabled and running. The wired network connection runs fine too. The problem: Wireless stopped working. When I right click on the network icon, the enable network option is clicked, but the "enable wireless" option is listed in dark grey and cannot be clicked on. I have recently updated my kernel version to 2.6.35-24-generic. What I have already tried: this one too I got to know there seems to be a problem with the 2.6.35-24-generic kernel. I have gone into the GRUB menu (it took some time to find out that you have to keep the Shift key pressed during startup for the GRUB menu to show), chosen the older kernel version (2.6.35-23-generic) and then removed the faulty one. Nevertheless, nothing has changed. I still cannot enable the wireless. The outcome to lshw -C network is:
I'm running a gateway lapbook w/10.04 LTS and an etheros wirless card. Card has been working fine for almost a year - from cold boot, warm boot, and recovery from standy (shut lid, open, press power button). I was fiddling with setting a static IP for the wirelss card by modifying the interfaces text file. I made some changes, and restored the file to its original contents after some noodling around. Wireless still worked fine after that. Last night I took the laptop out of suspend as usual - lifted lid, pressed power button - but the wireless indicator remained grayed out and I haven't been able to reenable wireless connectivity since. ifconfig shows the wireless card is there, and cabling the e-net port directly to my hub works fine.
I go to the icon and it says "wireless is disabled by hardware switch", well I didn't press any hardware switch. My laptop is a Dell L501X, the "hardware switch" is the Fn button and F2. I've tried pressing this but nothing happens.
Is this a bug with the latest linux version? Cos everything was working fine until my laptop updated.
The version I have now is "Linux 2.6.38-10-generic"
I'm running 11.04 64bit.
Here is some info from console :
me@XPS-L501X:~$ sudo ifconfig -a eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr f0:4d:a2:59:00:34 inet addr:192.168.1.3 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::f24d:a2ff:fe59:34/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
I am having problem with wireless networking my fedora 12 since i opened network manager yesterday. But to my notice i haven't done any changes. But still i am not able find any reason for the wireless network not to work. When i try to restart the network servies it gives the following msg.
Bringing up interface eth0:
This version of ISC DHCP is based on the release available on ftp.isc.org. Features have been added and other changes have been made to the base software release in order to make it work better with this distribution.
Please report for this software via the Red Hat Bugzilla site: [url]
Did i do something wrong with the network manager or did something go wrong with fedora.
Today my wireless has stopped working. I have a laptop hp6720s with network controller: Intel corporation PRO/Wireless 3945 ABG [Golan] Network connection (rev 02), dual boot vista/ubuntu 9.10, fully updated (kernel 2.6.31-17). I use a router edimax BR-6204 wg to use the net with other laptop. Till now i have using wicd for controll wireless without any problem, internet was quick and responsive. (Quick connection without any failure).
But today the internet was very slow and wireless starts to connect and disconnects intermitently, doing it unusable. This was what occured when i upgraded from jaunty to karmic and used the network manager from gnome, but then i fix the problem installing wicd. Now wicd behaves in the same way as gnome-network-manager. If i connect directly the computer to the router by wire, i have internet and everything works perfectly. How i can fix the wireless?. How i can do it works with ubuntu 9.10 and?.
