Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Can't Find Hardware Drivers Installed?

Feb 18, 2010

I'm having problems getting the wifi to work on my toshiba satellite pro l40 (psl4be). My laptop has a wifi card built in but linux cant seem to be able to find it. I tryed following these instructions and i got this output:

james@james-laptop:~$ lsusb
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 006 Device 002: ID 0bda:8197 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 0000:0000


as you can see its telling me i have no wifi card, even though i am fully aware i do. ive tryed using ndiswrapper to install the windows drivers of the ethernet adaptor but my wifi still doesnt work, im guessing ethernet has nothing to do with wifi.I intend to convert from windows, however if i cant get the wifi to work i can only see linux at a major disadvantage as i use my wifi alot.

Fedora Networking :: Wireless - Harsh Packet Loss - Cannot Find Any Native AR5008 Drivers For My Card

Nov 2, 2010

I am recently trying to get a steady wireless connection running. I am currently using the default settings/driver Fedora 13 is stocked with. As my internet browsing is somewhat up and down in load times, I decided to check in a video game which is generally a good test for me. haha I am harshly spiking and cannot find the source of my problem so my guess is a driver issue.

lspci | grep Network:



It is is seemingly right, my Windows 7 harddrive works just fine, this is just one last of the few issues I'm having from fully formatting my winblows HD to use as Linux storage.

I cannot find any native AR5008 Linux Drivers for my card and it has been a frustrating day. I guess I'm not cut to be a network analyst just yet.

System specs:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550
4GB DDR2 667
Gigabyte GTX465 1G
TP LINK TL-WN851N Wireless card

Ubuntu :: Can't Find Drivers - NO Propriatary Driver Installed ?

Jul 26, 2010

There is a laptop that I want to get that has the ATI Mobility Radeon 4100 and I cannot find it under ATI's driver downloads for any operating system.

Look for yourself [url] select notebook, then readeon, then 4100 series, for ANY operating system, it doesen't have a driver for it.

The first question is: Were is the linux driver for the 4100, and the second, if there is NO propriatary driver installed, will x take full use of the video hardware, or will it be capped and won't work to its fullest potential that it has?

General :: Wireless Not Working - Ndiswrapper And Drivers Installed?

Sep 15, 2010

I just recently put Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx on my laptop with windows dual booting. I'm pretty new to all this stuff, so I'm a bit confused. I followed instructions I read on here, but none of it seems to be working. I put all of the 3 Ndiswrapper things on, and then copied the .inf and .sys files from windows into the same directory. I just want to connect to my home network, which has WEP security.

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 :: 11.04 BCM4311 Drivers Installed - But No Internet ?

May 22, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my mom's Inspiron 1521 and before I had it on there I had a older version of ubuntu which worked fine and could connect to the Internet, but since my mother isn't that well educated in computers and wants a simple to use UI, Ubuntu came into mind.

Well after installing ubuntu for a hour or two and trying to configure the drivers to allow Internet access with out a USB adapter using the BCM4311 I tried everything such as following the pretty basic tutorials online on installing the drivers with no luck. I check the additional drivers application and it's telling me the drivers are installed properly and are okay. ... Well, why am I not able to find a list of wifi connections yet?

I did the update command and updated every package on the machine. I reinstalled the kernal drivers for the BCM4311. I even installed the installer for the kernal device and nothing seems to be working.

Ubuntu Networking :: Set Installed Realtek Drivers Permanently?

Sep 1, 2011

I've had some hiccups with my the wired connections on my new ASUS M5A88-M motherboard, ethernet card is a Realtek 8111E. The default drivers keep giving me an unstable connection - keeps starting and stopping. I figure it must be the drivers since the connection is fine when I boot to the windoze os. I went here and downloaded the "LINUX driver for kernel 2.6.x and 2.4.x (Support x86 and x64)" file. Untarred and ran the .sh. Checked speedtest.net and the result was almost a mirror, if not better, than when I did speedtest on the windoze os. I read this thread here which gave me some insight. The .sh appears to have replaced a r8169 driver with the one I downloaded, r8168. But when I restart, it reverts to the r8169 driver.

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom 4322AG STA Drivers Installed But No Connection

Jul 21, 2010

I have an HP Pavilion Dv6-1230US laptop that I bought from staples when it was on sale for 800 dollars with a 4 year accidental damage warranty. It came with Vista Home Premium 64Bit installed. It had Windows 7 Business 64Bit on it at one point, And the latest windows installation was Windows Vista Business 32Bit. My trial period ran out on vista and I switched to Ubuntu 10.04 32Bit, and, as always, I have a problem with the wireless card. I have looked it up and everything, i do have the drivers installed, and it looks functional, but its not. It will act like its going to connect to my AP (Netgear WNR3500L that is like 2 days old), but it eventually askes me for my WPA2-Personal AES key, which I have supplied, and is correct before hand, i type the exact same thing in and it still doesn't work.

I've tried sudo apt-get update, and sudo apt-get upgrade, but it doesn't work. nothing has to update. This installation was installed today, and updated about 6 hours ago to the fullest extent.The wired works absolutely perfect (that's how i updated it). Hardware:Laptop has a Broadcom 4322AG b/g/draft-n wireless card from HP integrated into the laptop. The router is a Netgear WNR3500L which i bought because we are switching ISP's soon and our old router is a modem, that will only work on a DSL connection.

Ubuntu :: Wireless Drivers Not Showing Up In Installed Version Only In "live"

Mar 22, 2010

I've got something that's really confusing me. I'm a total noob, but I read a fair bit about Ubuntu before I overwrote my windows. To make sure it worked, I used the Live run option, and it worked fine on my system. Everything worked, it notified me, however, to use the internet I'd have to download proprietary drivers (Broadcom B43 wireless driver and Broadcom STA wireless driver). I did it and my internet started working. So everything was fine and I rebooted and actually installed the OS. Once installed, it would not get internet, nor prompt for drivers being required. So I checked my manual and tried to do it manually: System / Administration / Hardware Drivers. It searched, and said there were no proprietary drivers. I thought that this was weird, so I rebooted my system "Live" again (even though it was already installed): and the Drivers were there again! They only show up in live, I can't get internet in the installed version. What's going on? How do I get these two drivers to show up on my actual installed copy, not my lie copy?

Ubuntu Networking :: Find D-link DWL-G122 Drivers?

Aug 14, 2010

I was wondering where to find the drivers for my D-link adapter. It says on the box that it has Linux support, what does that mean? I have already used it without any drivers and it works for a bit but after a week or something it doesn't work anymore (it is connected to the network but no download). What should I do? Would installing the drivers solve the problem?

Ubuntu Networking :: Pavilion Dv6 Wireless - Can't Find Local Wireless Networks

Jun 11, 2011

For some reason, ubuntu cannot find local wireless networks. In fact, the Broadcom wireless card Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g/n seems to be incompatible with ubuntu. I've tried numerous 'solutions' on the Internet, but none of them seem to work on my computer. Tutorials I've visited have recommended downloading the b43 drivers from the Synaptic package manager and also the bcmwl-kernal-source package. Nevertheless, the wireless never turns on and Additional Drivers never shows anything at all. After several exasperating hours of trying to get my wireless running I've decided to turn to the forum for help. I'm sure there's probably more information I should supply, but I'm honestly not sure what that would be.

Ubuntu Networking :: B43 / WL Drivers - Cannot Get Wireless To Work

Dec 23, 2010

When using the b43-pci-bridge driver for my broadcom card I can't get the wireless to work while if I use the wl driver it does. This is the only problem that I have that I can't use the wl because it doesn't allow me to change the mode of the card to monitor where as the b43 is compatible with mode change as well as with aircrack.

This is what lspci -nnk shows:
06:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM43XG [14e4:4329] (rev 01)
Kernel driver in use: b43-pci-bridge
Kernel modules: ssb
and neither network manager or iwconfig show blank while using the b43 driver but using the wl they do work....

I seemed to be having a conflict with the generic drivers which loaded for my wifi device 'b43-pci-bridge' and the ndiswrapper drivers i installed.

So i ran the command 'rmmod ssb' and now my broadcomm wireless device is "unclaimed"

Ubuntu Networking :: No Wireless In 10.4 - Can't Install Proprietary Drivers

Apr 30, 2010

Just upgraded to Lucid from Karmic. First thing I notice after restart is that I have no wireless. No big deal, I probably just need to re-install the proprietary drivers. I go to do this, and it gives me an error message, saying that the installation has failed. This has never happened before, and didn't happen when I upgraded from Jaunty to Karmic. I have an HP dv6 1230us and a Broadcom STA card.

I really need the internet to be working, and didn't anticipate that an upgrade, of all things, would screw it up...

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Detect Wireless, Drivers Recognized?

Jun 30, 2010

No wireless networks can be recognized in Ubuntu, and now after several attempted fixes, my wireless toggle button won't switch from orange to blue. My wireless card is Atheros AR5001. I posted in the absolute beginners forum, but I've played around so much that I think I can move on to this one I'm so sorry if posting another thread is bad etiquette, but I need to have wireless access by Friday morning, and am slightly desperate.

Attempted fixes: First, I installed the backport modules using Synaptic. Then, I installed the madwifi driver. After those failed, I used ndiswrapper to install the Windows driver (linked from the ndiswrapper page). I made sure to disable the madwifi driver and restart first. My output all looks normal--I blacklisted everything mentioned in google searches. Here is the current output of ndiswrapper -l:
