Ubuntu Networking :: What Wireless Adapter To Get?

Jan 26, 2011

I have tried a couple of wireless adapters (USB dongles) but none of them work all that good on Ubuntu. I keep loosing connexion when on Ubuntu while on Windows (dual boot) there never seems to be any problems, so signal strength is probably not the issue. I bet it's a drivers problem so what I want to know is which adapters work really really good/great/fantastic on Ubuntu? The first option, wext, was chosen when I installed Wicd (running side by side with GNOME Network manager).

Ubuntu Networking :: Get Wireless Network Adapter To Be Read By 'Windows Wireless Drivers'

Nov 24, 2010

I recently reformatted and dual partitioned to both Windows 7 as well as ubuntu 10.10. Loading works fine and Windows 7 is 100% operational. I cannot seem to get my wireless network adapter to be read by Ubuntus 'Windows Wireless Drivers' gui. Here are the steps that I have done THUS far, to make sure that we are all on the right path. Before I go any further, my wireless network adapter is an old school WUSB11 Linksys Wireless Network Adapter (running version 2.6).

1) Downloaded and installed "ndiswrapper" from ubuntu's main website. I downloaded the common, utils and ndisgtk files and installed them accordingly.
2) I extracted these three files to the desktop of Ubuntu and accessed the terminal page.
3) From terminal I typed "cd Desktop" to change the directory to the desktop.
4) Next, I typed in "Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-common_1.54-2ubuntu1_all.deb
Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.54-2ubuntu1_i386.deb
Sudo dpkg -i ndisgtk_0.8.5-1_i386.deb"
5) This installed Windows Wireless Drivers gui successfully and I can access it.
6) I have downloaded the driver files for the adapter from the cisco website and searched them for the required files needed.
7) After extracting the .INF file from the "Drivers" directory named "NETUSB.SYS" (I wasn't sure if the other associated files within the same folder needed to be present together with NETUSB so I moved everything to the desktop) I typed in "sudo ndiswrapper -i NETUSB.inf". After accessing the Windows Wireless Drivers gui I have noticed that the 'netusb' driver is present yet under it, the system states "Hardware present: No". This leads me to believe that maybe I installed incorrectly or my "fireware?" is not present? I was reading through the installation guide posted on the ubuntu website that in addition to the .INF file we also need the BIN file(s)? and SYS file(s)?.. The folder with the drivers for my adapter contains a BIN file but it is not within the "Drivers" section of the folder.
9) Upon mousing over the network Icon naturally my hardware is still not present.
10) From what I gather after the system finds the hardware I am to write into the terminal

Ubuntu Networking :: Best USB Wireless Adapter To Use?

Jun 17, 2011

I've got a couple of old PC's running Ubuntu but I want to give them wireless capability and move them to a different room. What is the easiest wireles adapter to use? I'm thinking USB would be easier than opening the boxes to install cards, plus I could buy one adapter and try it with both PC's to make sure it works, then buy a second one once I know it works.

Ubuntu Networking :: Sitecom WL-345 Wireless USB Adapter

Jan 1, 2010

I am trying to get the above wireless adapter o work with Ubuntu. I have installed ndiswrapper but I am unsure what windows driver I need that will work with it.

When I type lsusb I get the following: Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0df6:0042 Sitecom Europe B.V.

I tried searching the ndiswraper site but all I could find was Sitecom WL-344 300N X2 Wireless USB Adapter that pointed me to Driver: rt2870.inf and rt2870.sys (on Windows XP).

I am not sure if this will work or where to download these files, so I was wondering if anyone else has this adapter that could shed some light onto how to get it working.

Edit: I just tried the rt2870 driver and it didnt work

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Adapter Just Won't Stay On / Fix It?

May 29, 2010

I've recently installed 10.04 LTS on an old laptop. I've not been able to connect to the internet at all. I finally finagled some drivers for my Broadcom BCM4318, and seemed to get everything in order, but it says that the "Radio hardware status changed to DISABLED"

Then, I pushed the button on the laptop to turn the wireless on, and it worked! But then as soon as I let the button go, it turned off. Is there some way to toggle it so it's always on?

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 And Linksys USB Wireless Adapter

Jul 13, 2010

Previously I had my desktop hooked up to a nearby router via an ethernet cord with my parents' computer having a wireless usb adapter to connect (This thing: [uRL]). We just moved and our setup has reversed (router is near their computer, I am using the usb adapter). I just installed the latest Ubuntu and now I can't get the usb adapter to work. I'm very new to Linux and I have no idea what to do. I think this is the same usb adapter.

Ubuntu Networking :: EDUP 802.11N Wireless Adapter?

Jul 20, 2010

Recently I purchased for few bucks on eBay a wireless network adapter with name "EDUP 802.11N". This thread explains how to setup this device on Ubuntu. I inserted USB wireless adapter on Windows XP and it was recognized as "Realtek RTL8188SU Wireless LAN 802.11n USB 2.0 Network Adapter". Windows didn't have any problem to install its driver automatically but for Ubuntu I had to give some additional effort.

After that I went on Realtek official site (www.realtek.com.tw) where I found that this device is supported on linux platform, downloaded and compiled linux driver. This driver (kernel module) is for kernels from 2.6.18 ~ 2.6.33. Unzip this file and in "drivers" subfolder there is driver archive (tar.gz).

Code:
>cd rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100625/driver
>tar zxvf rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.6.0.20100625.tar.gz
>cd rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.6.0.20100625
>make
>./clean

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Adapter Not Working / Fix It?

Aug 26, 2010

As the title reads. My wireless adapter does not work when I boot from the Ubuntu 10.04 LiveCD. The adapter in question... tricky. It's this one: [URL]...- however, aside from a mention in one of the comments to a "Ralink RT2780", I don't see any reference to a make/model.

The software that ships with this product is indeed Ralink-branded, but again there's no mention of a specific make/model. So I assume it's just a driver issue, however I've no idea where to begin in my search for one as I can't identify its model number.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Get Wireless Adapter To Work

Dec 4, 2010

I love ubuntu, but I don't know how to use a command line to save my life. I'd just as soon never use a terminal ever. My big issue is I cannot get my wireless adapter to work. It is a keebox w150nu, which is based off the Ralink RT3070 chip. I am willing to use command line to get this thing to work because I love ubuntu to death, but everything I have tried has failed. I have gone to the Ralink website and downloaded the Tar.bz file from there. t

The file I grabbed is the third one down from the top: [URL].

I have absolutely no idea what to do from there with the file however. Please understand that I have zero idea how to use command line in a terminal. What I have to do to make this work? Is there a usb wireless N adapter that works straight away with ubuntu 10.10, as in I plug it in before the install, and it is immediately recognized and works immediately?

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.10 And Win7 - Wireless N USB Adapter

Jan 19, 2011

First off my wireless use to work on the live usb and now doesn't. It also has changed behavior in windows where the button to activate/deactivate is no longer flashing blue for orange while booting windows and then going solid blue by the time it gets to where I type my password in. Now it no longer does the flash and when I get to where I enter my password I have to push the button twice to get it blue (active). If this can't get resolved can you recommend a wireless N usb adapter that will work both in windows 7 and Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Networking :: Asus N10 Wireless Usb Adapter On 10.04 LTS

Jul 26, 2011

I recently purchased an Asus n10 wireless usb adapter to use with my media server, running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx). After spending several hours today with many of the threads (especially this one about the Asus n13) it seems that I've run out of ideas.

My network is running a hidden (non-broadcast) SSID ("Potato") with wpa2 personal encryption.

Here is the relevant information from lsusb:

Code:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0b05:1786 ASUSTek Computer Inc.

Iwconfig follows. The rest of the values, like link quality & etc, are all zero:

Code:
wlan0 802.11b/g ESSID:"Potato"
Mode: Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Bit Rate: 0kb/s

And the kicker is that the interface doesn't seem to be available, despite the above reports. ifconfig wlan0 up produces:

Code:
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Resource temporarily unavailable
