Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Internet Drops Frequently With Realtek Card On Kubuntu 10.04?
Feb 11, 2011
I'm using Kubuntu 10.04.2 LTS on a Bangho laptop. Kernel 2.6.32-28-generic i686. My card is: Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8187B Wireless 802.11g 54Mbps Network Adapter iwconfig wlan0 gives me:
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"Default_WLAN"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.442 GHz Access Point: 00:06:4F:8D:B9:AF
Bit Rate=1 Mb/s Tx-Power=20 dBm
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr: off Fragment thr: off
Usually when this happens, for 10 or 20 seconds it appears to be connected (i.e. the heart symbol is there) but I can't ping google or my router, then it "realizes" it's disconnected. It takes one or two attempts to reconnect successfully by pressing the "active" button. Meanwhile throughout the disconnections and re-connections the signal is very strong (98%).
I had the same problem with my old access point, at first I thought it was the cheap/old hardware, so now I bought an "ENCORE ENDSL-A2+WIGX2 | ADSL 2+ Modem with 4 Port Wireless Router". The problem persists only with a stronger signal.
I have installed 9.04 ( I currently have it on dual boot with Windows XP) and my problem is that I have no internet connection. I have a Motorola modem with a Realtek RTL8139 Family Fast Ethernet NIC network card ( it's a wired connection, btw) When I plug in the cable, there's a little animation, but after a while I get the message: Wired connection is not active (or something like that) Here's what I did so far:
1) I ticked the Wake-On-Lan option in XP, since I read it in the forums that I could solve my problem. It did not
2) I turned off my modem, rebooted my system.
3) I deleted the Auto Ethernet network, and plugged in the cable again...no use.
4) I did an ifconfig, since I know that is what you guys really want
evajulia@Derek:~$ ifconfig eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:18:f3:ab:2b:3a inet6 addr: fe80::218:f3ff:feab:2b3a/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
I'm having issues with my wired network. After about 5-10 minutes of turning on my machine, the network will drop out. Sometimes rebooting my pc or router will fix the connection, other times it will have no effect. Also, sometimes the connection will completely disconnect, other times it will appear to be connected (i.e. the network icon will indicate that there is a connection), but trying to ping a remote server or the router will fail.
This problem first showed up on Fedora 11 64, however I've just installed Fedora 13 64 and that hasn't helped. I'm using a brand new NIC (I've tried using the onboard NICs). The machine also has Windows 7 installed, which is able to connect just fine. Apart from changing NICs, the only other thing I've tried is switching from dhcp to a static IP address.
I have a Toshiba Satellite series laptop, i get ubuntu on it, all works well but there's a problem, my wireless card doesn't work, it doesn't show me the aviable wireless network, my Wireless Card is an Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10) but it works in windows. I used Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS. When i run these codes that's what it shows:
I am trying to install EDUP 802.11n Wireless USB Install (RTL8188SU) on my recently installed ubuntu platform and I need a driver for it. I downloaded the one from the Realtec website and I got a bunch of files that I have no idea what to do with them. (h[URL]... I am compleatly new at Linux and I have no idea how to install anything. I am pretty nifty with Windows but this is my first time trying Ubuntu and Linux. So can I have some step by step guide to install this. I am good at following clear instructions correctly.
Aditional Info: I tired the hardware thing already or whatever its called and only NVIDIA drivers are there and my USB is not recornized because it needs a driver.
Running Linux mint 10 After the installation the wireless connection worked but it was very weak and intermittent. The icon would show 1 bar or none. iwconfig showed the rate at 1Mb/s. The same card worked fine in windows and on a 32bit version of linux. Installed new driver from realtek. Now the iwconfig readings look good and the icons shows 2 and sometimes 3 bars. But it will not connect at all! I even turned off all security on my router but it would not connect.
Im not able to establish a Wireless Internet connection in Ubuntu 10.04.
Ive tried these steps:
1. Wireless Internet did not show via the Network-icon. Only the 2 LAN-gates where shown
2. I installed the Windows Driver (net8185.inf) via ndisgtk package
3. After restarting the computer, 2 LAN-gates and 1 WLAN where listed via the Network-icon
4. Normally WLAN should automatically start scanning for available networks, but that didnt happen
5. When I tried to connect to my own network, the computer tries to connect for 1 minute and than stops because no connection could be established
6. A wired Internet-connection does not give any problems
Details: - I first had Ubuntu 9.10 but I wasnt able to make a WLAN connection either. I followed the same steps. After that I upgraded to 10.04 - iwconfig in Terminal gives an IP-address which consists of 12 identical characters. - lspci in Terminal shows these data: 01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM5787M Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (rev 02)
- How to create an Internet connection via my WLAN-card?
- How to install the option to search for available networks automatically?
The card is recognized by Ubuntu 9.10 and I have it in the network manager. I followed one tutorial about creating an ad-hoc network and all looked good, until I actually wanted to connect (or to be more precise, my machine is a host for other computers). The wireless icon just loops endlessly, without connecting and eventually I get "Wireless network - disconnected" message.
So, the main issue here is - connecting! I just can't. Also if you know/have some good tutorial for ad-hoc,
Code: ivan@ivan-desktop:~$ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"internat3"
this isnt happening on ubuntu but I think this is more or less a kernel problem that could happen with any flavor. After a new install off of a live cd my wireless card is not picking up any signals...i was able to use wireless while using the live cd but now after it has been isntalled to the hard drive it is not working. even tried in terminal to manually look (iwlist wlan0 scan) but it isnt picking up the signal
I just recently installed CentOS 5.3 and to make a long story short I found the entry for my wireless card under the network settings but when attempting to activate the card the system locks up. I have to reboot at that point as nothing responds (keyboard, mouse, etc..).
Running the command /sbin/lspci -v reveals the following about the wireless card:
I think "Absolute Beginners" is not the best place for it to get an answer. It might take a while to get moved. Forgive me, but I might loose my borrowed machine at any moment so no connection at all then and I'm in a place where I have no idea how to find a cafe.I've attached diagnostic output following someones help to a 10.04 user.[URL]
my wireless home network is not recognized by my network card (RealTek RTL8190 mini PCI). The post was as follows: "I am using a new computer with Windows 7 , Athlon quad core 2.60 64 bit, 8GB RAM. Internet conection works fine with ethernet but ubuntu does not see my wireless network. card (RealTek RTL 8190 ID: 10ec:8190). Have searched this forum but unable to come up with a fix. I was looking for windows XP drivers to use Ndiswrapper but could not find a list of .inf files. My network is OK and works perfectly in windows and with my 2 laptops. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Additional info: install was done within Windows using WUBI to a separate partition on my HDD. I am new to this and thouroughly confused as to the procedure for installing the drivers if they are in fact available."
I am very frustrated in that I would like to use Ubuntu 10.04 but it is useless without internet connectability. I am new to linux and do not understand where to get the appropriate drivers or how to install them. I wish someone would answer this post and either give me a clue what to do or just say "give up" and uninstall ubunutu.
since ive upgraded to ubuntu 9.10 i have noticed that when i leave my computer for a while or just stop using it or leave it idling my internet connection drops. my comp doesnt hibernate or go to stand by. does anyone know any reasons for this? or know how to stop this? its hard to download something when my comp drops the internet connection.
I am far too often getting connections dropped when trying to load web pages from my local server. From my mac running Safari I get the error message "Safari can't open the page...because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection." From Firefox on my Ubuntu 0.10 desktop it opens the window that says "You have chosen to open index.php..." and ask if I should edit the file or save it. When I tail the apache2 access.log it shows the previous successful page load but the one that failed is not mentioned. In error.log I get some stuff I don't understand, except the last line which says aborted:
I have Slackware(x32) 13.1 installed on my computer. Everything runs just fine except it doesn't seem my wireless card.I looked around and found a driver on the Realtek website. But, after I installed it, linux wouldn't boot. It would just hang. The driver did help my get the card detected, though.
On lspci, I found: 02:00.0 [Realtek company name here] RTL8101E/RTL8102E 03:00.0 [Realtek company name here] Device 8172
On windows, it said I had RTL8191SE. I am confused as to which card I have and which driver I need.I reinstalled the driver and rebooted. I then turned off my ether card via bios. Then I rebooted. Linux then booted just perfectly. However, I couldn't get the wireless to work. I was freaking and then left to go do something else with my hands. Then I realized I had the card turned off. I mentally punched myself. >.>
i installed Opensuse 11.2 recently but the wireless internet wasn't working been searching for few days now and i can't find the solution. it shows my modem, and i can connect to it but for some reason it appears to drop the connection it keeps asking me for my encreption key so btw is one of the first times i worked with linux / opensuse.
I have just downloaded realtek rtl98192se for my wireless pci card. after extracting the file, the user guide states to go to the top level of the directory and execute the command 'make' to compile the driver
I have done so but I get the error: make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.18-194.el5/build: No such file or directory. Stop. Make: *** [all] Error 2
Ubuntu 10.4 with wireless card TP-Link TL-WN321G the driver installed and it connect to the wireless network but no internet access. I checked everything about the wireless information and everything is fine nothing wrong and the ip address is fine, am new to ubuntu and I don't know how to uninstall or reinstall the driver so I bought another wireless adapter Xtech this one the ubuntu didn't recognize it and I have the cd it came with but the driver is like make file and configure and .a or .c I really want to use ubuntu but without an internet connection no use of it!
I am having trouble getting a Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller to work on openSuSE 11.3. Most of the data for the problem is in this pastebin of the output of Framp's collectNWData.sh. I have also downloaded drivers for this card as detailed below.
I have installed a wireless card in my Ubuntu 9.04 System. When I start Firefox, it keep searching for a while and it cannot connect to the internet. I have attached screen shots of network connections. When I type the address of the router in the browser address window, it cannot access the router.
I am building a CarPC which I'd like to have wireless internet access on. I have Verizon phone service so if there is a Verizon air card (not wireless card, an air card so I can have constant access without having to search for hot spots) that would work with Fedora 10 I would be very happy. I don't really know where to start and I can't find too much on Google, so I'm just looking for what options are available.
Ok a little confused here. I got this working in f14 no problems but anyway. I have a wireless usb net card with a realtek 8192su chipset and of course it is not recognized.Dloaded driver from realtek unzipped tarball. Ran make clean and no errors then ran make all and this is what I get same with make or make install.
Code: [root@donnie rtl8712]# make all make ARCH=i386 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/220.127.116.11-26.rc1.fc15.i686/build M=/usr
I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 computer. I boot into Ubuntu with a flash drive. When I boot, I cannot connect to a wireless network. No available networks are displayed (and I know my router is on) and the Network Manager icon displays no bars. I suspect that the Dell Wireless card (having a Broadcom BCM-4312 chipset) needs a driver. I have tried to intstall both of the restricted drivers (BCM STA and 43xx drivers), but with no success. I have run lspci in Terminal, and got many lines of text. Here are the lines that look relevant to me:
Code: 09:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (rev 13) 0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01) In Windows 7, everything is just fine. In Ubuntu, my wired connection works like a charm, but is not really accessible. Basically, I have to connect to wireless in Ubuntu or I have no reason for having it.
I've decided I want to cross over to Ubuntu from Win vista but there's one thing i cant get working. My wireless card. My wireless card is a Xterasys xn 2523g I can't make this switch until i have the internet working.
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]
