i recently purchased a new custom-built computer and thought i would give ubuntu a shot (read: i'm a linux noob). i'm running 11.04. anyway, i can't get my pci wireless card to work. i downloaded the rt3562 driver from ralink's site, followed the directions in this tutorial url?t=1608095 and i keep getting an error message when i try to do "sudo make":
I am completely new to linux so a lot of this has been foreign to me. I have ran the lspci command to find out my wireless card is Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 and I found the driver for this card at:it won't let me post the URL for some reason...but i googled "Broadcom BCM4313 driver for linux" and it's the first link.I downloaded the 32-bit driver but now I have absolutely no idea what to do.The download has folders named lib and src, and a text file called Makefile.
I have MacBook 3,1. I just installed 11.04. When I go to activate the "Broadcom STA wireless driver" I get the message "Sorry, installation of this driver failed. Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log" When I check the log the message is "2011-04-28 18:38:59,896 DEBUG: BroadcomWLHandler enabled(): kmod disabled, bcm43xx: blacklisted, b43: blacklisted, b43legacy: blacklisted"
I have had 10.04 on this computer in the past and it worked fine, but this is a fresh install of 11.04. Any suggestions on where to go from here?
i would really like to know how to patch a wireless card driver so that i can start injection in aircrack for example let's say we have an "Atheros AR5007EG" do you know where to find the driver patch for ubuntu and how to patch it ?
I've been trying to make/compile the driver for a wireless card. The card is usb, it's titled Micronext MN-WD550M and seems to use the rtl8712 driver.Firstly, though I did this once two years ago I seem to have completely forgotten how to install a driver in ubuntu.
Secondly, I'm not sure I have the right driver anyway since in the notes in the readme it says it is for i386 (I run amd 64). The driver is here [URL] Thirdly, after clicking through various readmes and documentation without feeling any more intelligent, I then tried using ndiswrapper to install a windows driver and ubuntu would crash if the usb wireless card was plugged in. Blarg.I feel like this should be so simple I'm going to make a clean installation of ubuntu 10.10 shortly (for various unrelated reasons) so anything I messed up with ndiswrapper should be back to normal.
I'm trying to install the driver for mi wireless card. The instructions say that to build the tar.gz file, I have to:
# mkdir hybrid_wl # cd hybrid_wl # tar <path>/hybrid-portsrc.tarhybrid-portsrc-x86_64.tar.gz
The third step i don't understand. I want the folder of the driver to be located in a folder inside home called "Programas" so what I did was to open the terminal, went su, and then did cd Programas. Then I followed instructions 1 and 2, but I don't know what to put where it says <path>.
i have found a flavor or linux i now prefer and i installed it on my laptop. i went to configure the wireless card and it tells me no wireless networks found. i can run off of the ethernet port just fine. the wireless card that's in this laptop is a cisco mpci-350 series. i would like to be able to use the laptop without having to be tethered to an ethernet cable. what can i do. how do i correct it and how would i go about installing the driver if i have to in zencafe since there isnt anywhere to install a driver.
I am using ubuntu 9.10. Kernel version is 2.6.31-14-generic. I couldnt find driver for Atheros wireless card which shows in 'lspci' 0c:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)
I am not really that good with linux, yet, I have a smc 2602W v3 wireless pci card, and I want to install it on linux, so I could access the internet, but I haven't found any solutions yet. Btw latest ubuntu desktop version. Info about the card: [URL]
I'm very new to openSUSE, so I need easy, clear instructions on how to install the driver for RaLink RT2561T wi-fi card. I have the driver and everything, I just don't have a clue on how to install it!
I have a Netgear WG511GE PCMCIA card, and a driver from the original installation disk. I used an ndiswrapper-utils gui called ndisgtk to install the driver. I then do the following to verify an installation:
Unfortunately, when I put the PCMCIA card in, nothing happens. On Windows, a green light flashes even if the card is not connected to any network. At first I thought this might be a hardware issue, so I did #lspci and got:
Lo and behold, when I put a different unbranded Wireless PC Card in it works. I'm no expert in Networks, but to me this suggests a driver problem (i.e. the card is physically detected it just won't work). However, the correct driver was installed with ndisgtk and this was verified with #ndiswrapper -l, hence the confusion.
I'd be grateful if anyone else has had this problem/knows of this problem and is willing to share the solution with me/point me in the right direction. So far, Google has returned a few posts from a few years ago talking about patching kernels and manually building files etc (just before Prism54 became integrated into the Linux kernel).
I'm trying to find a driver for my wireless card (Atheros AR928X) and I think it's ath9k what I need. As far as I know there isn't a linux driver for it, so I installed ndiswrapper to use a windows driver instead. The problem is that when I type modprobe ndiswrapper I get "bash: modprobe: command not found" (even as root). I know I'm missing something about modprobe, but I can't find any help on google. Anyway, I installed ndisgtk next, because I thought it would be easier, but when I go to System> Administration> Windows Wireless Drivers I get a message "Unknown error".Do you have any ideas on how I'll make ndiswrapper work?
I just installed Linux Mint 9 as a dual boot install with Win XP. Trying to activate wireless network card driver and video driver. Pops up: "You are not authorized to perform this action".How do I get authorized?
Now every time I boot Win XP, the Internet Explorer menu bar is all blacked out and goofy. If I log out and back in it corrects itself. If I reboot it's blacked out again. Re-installed IE8. Still blacks out.Also Firefox in Win XP crashes expectantly. It has NEVER crashed on me previously.
I have a dual boot on my computer - with ubuntu 9.04 jaunty jackalope on one side of the partition, and windows 2000 on the other. I recently bought - and had installed - a new ethernet card: TP-LINK network adapter TF-3239DL. It works perfectly on windows, but not on linux. I understand that the problem is that I need to install the linux driver, which I have available (comes in the CD), but I don't really understand how I am supposed to proceed. The instructions are very unclear to me, and I have relatively little experience.
There seems to be some trouble with 8139too not working in a previous post. Has anyone found a solution to this? ubuntu version 2.6.24 (Hardy Heron?). Followed all known possibilities but information is all mostly out of date. module 8139too.ok? does not load. Following makefile on 8139too.c supplied, after altering to suit my version, comes up with 3 pages of errors?. ifconfig shows nothing for eth0like the last person markjuggles i have hit a brick wall here. Am I wasting my time?
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on an old family laptop. It is a Compaq Presario V2000. Everything works perfectly except no wireless networks are recognized, even though I know there are available networks. My network controller is detected but is not doing it's job, which is finding available wireless networks! Using "system testing" I found this out about my network controller:
"Detecting your network controller(s):
Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10) Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)"
I just upgraded ubuntu to 11.04 and I need to install the wireless driver again. I downloaded the driver and I am getting the following error when running make:
./kernelversion.c:13:30: fatal error: linux/utsrelease.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. Makefile.inc:81: *** Cannot detect kernel version - please check compiler and KERNELPATH. Stop.
Here's what I already installed on my laptop trying to get it fixed.
I have recently installed kubuntu 9.04 on my laptop. i then connected an ethernet cable and upgraded it to kubuntu 9.10. but i would like to connect to the internet using wireless. but i do not know how to install the windows wireless driver for my card on this OS. my card is: D-link AirPlus G DWL-g630.
I have been struggled with wireless connection. Here is the things... My room doesn't have moduler jack. So basically my landlord is sharing with his wifi. Also, my desktop is using Netgear wireless adapter for internet. My laptop and desktop are windows 7 which can conncet with internet very well. But my Linux Os in my desktop couldn't conncet. Recently I installed ubuntu because my co-worker told me ubuntu can be applied to connect with internet through wireless.
However, how can my ubuntu os get wireless connection without ethernet cable. Actually, my harddisk drive is multiple boot containing windows 7, Ubuntu, and Centos. Windows 7 can connect internet smoothly. But you know, Ubuntu and Centos can't do nothing. So I am stacking this situation not to connect internet through Linux OS right now.
I am trying to install usb wireless network card drivers on to lucid. I didnt think i was soo much a noob but it has come apparent to me now.Anyway when i use 'sudo make' i get errors that i do not understand.
Everytime I want to active it I got the following: installation of this driver failed. have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log I don't know if this is related to Software Sources, I only have Canonical Partners and Independent. I installed Ubuntu 11.04 from an ISO file and used the whole disk
