I am using Ubuntu 10.04. I installed the Broadcom STA Wireless driver from System -> Administration ->Hardware Drivers, and it seemed to work fine, but the next time I turned on my laptop, my wireless card wasn't recognized anymore! When I went to System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers, the driver was gone from the list! Where did it go?Update - Solution:his is hardware issue, not a b43 issue.
I had no problems using my dell mini with ubuntu wireless UNTIL i did a direct connect into my home network to download some updates. Now the wireless connection option has disappeared and only shows a wired connection in "network". Does anyone know how to get it changed back. Terminal no longer shows an eth1 but lists eth0 as the wired connection on ifconfig.
When the laptop boots I get a very brief message to say "wireless network available, click on icon". But it disappears in a second. I'm not clear whether my WL-140 card is in device wlan0 or wmaster0. Here's what lshw -C network says... *-network description: Wireless interface product: ISL3886 [Prism Javelin/Prism Xbow] vendor: Intersil Corporation physical id: 2 bus info: pci@0000:06:00.0 logical name: wmaster0 version: 01 serial: 00:0c:f6:14:a4:35 width: 32 bits clock: 33MHz .....
After installing Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my Toshiba NB505, I hoped the wireless would just work right away, but it didn't. After much searching, I found these instructions (scroll down to High Horse's response at #3), which directed me to download the Realtek Driver RTL8192SE. I followed the directions to a T and everything was working wonderfully, until a recent restart that has taken me back to square one. I think the default Ubuntu drivers may be overriding the drivers I installed and putting everything back to default (no wireless), but I'm not sure. Here's the latest output:
This is a Toshiba Satellite L640 and has a Broadcom BCM4313 controller and Bios version 1.9 and I'm posting by booting my Ubuntu 11.04 cd in "trial" mode which rules out hardware cause for trouble.My 11.04 install is brand new today and wireless was working perfectly immediately after install. Since then, I've shut it down and when I rebooted it I haven't been able to find any wireless connections.
I've installed the updates that were suggested after the install and also activated the two proprietary drivers that th system suggested - this might include the proprietary Broadcom wireless driver, that's the only proprietary driver suggested in the current "trial" mode and I remember there being the graphic driver and one other.I wondered if the wireless was turned off so I tried to turn it on or get it up. I typed ifup wlan0 but it said wlan0 was not configured. In production mode, when I click the wireless icon: it says wireless is enabled and offers me the option of connecting to a hidden network or setting up a new connection, but it can't see any connections even when my phone has seen the connection and automatically signed in. It can't see my home WPA2 connection or my completely open work connection.
After a few years of being a fedora user on a large network, I final decided to bite the bullet and dual-boot my home desktop (solely XP at the time) with fedora 10 on Saturday. The installation seemed to go well, but I am having a few problems, which solved themselves at one point but have come back and I have no idea why.
- I installed and re-partitioned with the install DVD, giving fedora 20GB. Having read a few guides and forum posts I wasn't surprised when the wifi and ATI graphics card didn't work. They appeared in the output of lspci, but I couldn't change the screen resolution and no wireless card was available. - I bought a new wireless card a while ago but hadn't had time to put in so used this opportunity to do so (installed it in XP to check it worked) and when I rebooted, guess what, the resolution was what I wanted and I could see all the networks in the neighbourhood. I connected, downloaded/installed the myriad of updates together with a couple of programes through yum and went to bed a happy man. - This morning (my router needed rebooting and after) I was back to the same as before the new wireless card, i.e. low resolution and no wifi. Having no idea what had happened, I check for loose connections, after that the resolution returned and the wifi worked but I can't see my home network.
I am having issues with wifi on my Lenovo X220. What has occurred is that the network applet in the notification bar no longer shows me any wireless network options. When I click on the applet, the drop down shows me: Wired network: disconnected (greyed out), VPN connections, Enable networking (checked), Connection information (greyed out), and Edit connections. Missing is Wireless connections. This occurred "out of the blue" in the middle of using the computer (i.e. NOT just after a reboot or new driver installation, etc.)
I have noted that:
1. Wired ethernet works just fine.
2. Wireless (wifi) works when I boot into Windows 7 or into a fresh Ubuntu USB Start up disk (implying that this is a software issue, not hardware).
3. The hardware led for wifi is OFF (whereas the Bluetooth light is on.) In Windows or using a fresh ubuntu from USB, this light turns on normally.
This may be irrelevant, but the issue started yesterday when I noticed that the trackpoint scrolling that I had enabled using gpointing-device-settings was not working. I ran that app and checked the settings, which were normal. I then reset the computer, and found the trackpoint was working just fine, but I had no wifi. A few resets later, the problem was not solved.
It has been haunting me for weeks and I haven't been able to fix it so far: When I installed the wireless driver 43XX series on my laptop using a wired internet, I saw the wireless network for a while and after I rebooted my system, My kernel(31) got corrupted and I got error "kernel Panic (and some sync error)",Thus I started using an older kernel(14),Now When I install wireless driver or mobile broadband driver(wvdial), they get vanished after the reboot and my mobile device modem isn't detected.But they are installed in my system(as shown by synaptic package manager but doesn't seemt to work) I desperately want to use mobile broadband.
How To: Uninstall/Remove Old Wireless Driver to make way for New Driver (RTL8191SE)?
Here's the new driver:
I have been having trouble with my wireless connection intermittently disconnecting and reconnecting repeatedly (sometimes every couple of seconds). I posted a thread about this here on Ubuntu Forums titled: Ubuntu 10.45 & NetworkManager Applet 8.0: Connects & Disconnects Frequently.
I switched my girlfriend laptop from windows 7 to Kubuntu 9.4, then upgraded to karmic koala. I was able to, through the hardware manager, install a software modem driver, and a firmware unwrapper driver for her broadcom 4.X series wireless adapter. Whenever I attempted to install the broadcom 4.1, 4.2. ect driver itself a package update would fail, but wireless functionality still worked nonetheless. My girlfriend has a TX1000 HP laptop, similar to this one:[URL]..Product number in the bios is GA648UA#ABA System Board ID is 30BF
The wireless drivers she needs are proprietary. This worked for a while, although seemingly at random her wireless would go out, and her analog sound driver for her Nvidia chipsets would too. Usually logging out of the KDE environment and back in fixed the issue. Now wireless is completely gone; using a hard ethernet core to the router still works. Even connected to the internet, the proprietary drivers that used to be available in the hardware manager aren't there anymore. Right before the driver disappeared, I updated the system with all the latest round of updates, and installed the base package and some plugins for VLC. I don't know how to role back packages to see if an update killed the wireless, I uninstalled the VLC software but that didn't help.
Wireless is checked enabled on my taskbar, and I have checked my bios and haven't found any setting to disable the wireless adapter. Anything networking related has been enabled. At this point I am rather frustrated with the stability of Kubuntu overall and would prefer a hard solution that will permanently fix the problem.
I have the source code to create a wireless driver. This came with the cd for my adapter but i dont know what to do. btw while i'm in ubuntu i will not have a wired conection to the net seeing as my routers down stairs and i dont have a cable long enough to reach
Basically today (1st of june) about 1.30pm my computer updated. I was on facebook at the time and was commenting on a post but didn't click "Send message". My computer went onto screensaver, So I unlocked my computer to find my keyboard wasn't working (But it was ok on the password lock). I then thought that restarting my computer might help the keyboard to work. I restarted my computer and as it turned on, my wireless icon had an exclamation mark next to it ("!") I clicked on the icon to find that only "Wired network" was only displayed, Before the restart "Wireless network" was there but it had disappeared. I've looked into it, and it looks like my wireless driver has been unistalled by the most recent update on Ubuntu. As far as I remember the wireless driver was Broadcom for a hp pavillion zd8000.
I did a few things to the drivers and the wireless aspect of my ubuntu system and I'd like to know how would I reset everything back to as if it was a fresh install (but only regarding my wireless drivers and all that jazz)?
I'll have to purge it and then reinstall it over a wired network.
im on compaq presario cq40 (amd64 turion x2) and recently install ubuntu.10.04 using wubi with dual os.. im installed wireless braodcom BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY 'bcm43xx-fwcutter_006-3_amd64.deb' driver for my laptop and restart my machine.. when i go to > hardware dirver, there is no driver installed.. any suggestion? or lists any driver compatible with my laptop..
as the majority of ubuntu 10.04 users I had problems with setting up wireless internet connection too. After reading many forum topics I somehow managed to set up the connection.Now the only problem is that when I restart computer wireless connection is no longer working. Each time I boot Ubuntu I have to go to System>Administration>Hardware Drivers, remove Broadcom STA wireless driver and then install it again. Otherwise the wireless connection is not working and under Broadcom STA wireless driver this message is written:
I downloaded ubuntu on my wireless netbook my wireless network connection was not working so i checked on terminal and it said it was unclaimed meaning that ubuntu is not recognizing my built in wireless driver (hardware) what should i do becayse ubuntu could also not find the ndiswrapper?
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've got a friend who, after experiencing the horrors of Vista and me telling of the wonders of Linux, decided to switch. However, her Wifi is not working. I typed in 'lspci -nn', and it seems that two things came up; a Broadcom BCM4401 and an Atheros AR2413. Does the computer have two Wifi cards? Which do I need the driver for, or both? Which brings me to my second question; where do I find and how do I install a driver?
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.
Cannot get wireless to work. Hostapd.conf had nothing inserted in it so I put the following in which I found [URL]..So it connected right away and then disconnected after opening one of my tabs. I went back into hostapd.conf and it had erased all the info I put in there. Is there a way to keep it from deleting this info every time. Because it worked great for a brief second. Otherwise it just keeps going on, then going off. It stays off most of the time though. Right now this is what my iwconfig reads:
I've been searching forums like for 2 days, but couldn't find any similar problem. First of all im running Ubuntu 10.04 desktop version on my netbook Acer aspire one (AOD150) Every time i turn off my netbook and after turn it on, in "Hardware drivers" it says that driver for wifi is not in use, also button for switching on/off wifi is not working. So everytime i start up i have to go into "Hardware drivers", remove driver for wifi, and then activate it again. And everything is working gr8 after. Its just too annoying to do it everytime.
