Ubuntu Networking :: "Wireless Is Disabled" For All Wifi With 10.04 On Asus A2500H?

Jun 16, 2010

having problems with wireless on my old Asus A2500H laptop, NetworkManager applet keeps the "enable wireless" greyed out and gives a "Wireless is disabled" for each wirelss network card. The wireless cards in this laptop are:

Code:
00:0c.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4303 802.11b Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR2413 802.11bg NIC (rev 01)
It does look like the network interface come up fine as well:
Code:
wlan0 IEEE 802.11b ESSID:off/any
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=off

[Code]....

Of course the easy solution would be to just flick that hardware switch on, however there isn't any hardware button only a indicator light, which is off unfortunately.

Any clues to get wifi up? Also tried another pcmcia card but same problem, card is recognized but still "Wireless is disabled".

Networking :: Can't Get Wireless Working In Slitaz (Asus Aspire ZG5, Atheros Wifi)?

Sep 17, 2010

So I decided to wipe out Windows and try Slitaz. It's an awesome well featured distro for it's size. One huge problem tho: I can't get wireless to work for the life of me. I actually went as far as to manually load the ath5k module but It just refuses to recognize my wireless router, much less any nearby routers. It simply doesn't see anything when it scans for wireless networks. I have no problem with that in Puppy Lucid. But I'd really like to use Slitaz, just for it's small size and quick bootup. Can anyone PLEASE help me with that?

PS: It happened here before that I had to plea and beg for any response, so PLEASE(!!) don't let me hang like that this time.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10 - Wireless (grrr) - Wifi Switch DISABLED

Dec 22, 2010

I decided to wing it and upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10 once I developed odd wireless issues (grrr) where I could only get on wireless if I booted up Ubuntu with my wifi switch DISABLED and then right away enabled it once I was logged in. The funny part is, it distinctly said 10.10 available in update manager. I get it done, power up, System - About Ubuntu - 11.04.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Can't Connect Asus N13 Wifi Dongle (Ralink RT2870 )

Nov 7, 2010

Im a Linux newbie and am running OpenSuse 11.3 (Gnome, 2.6.34.7-0.5-desktop Kernel) and Ive an Asus N13 wifi dongle (linux compatible). I currently connect using my laptopÅ› internal wifi but I bought the dongle due to trouble with weak signal. It came with some sort of code that can be "compiled" but I havent got a clue how to do that (and I have been researching this matter for quite some time now). I then came across a post where someone with the same USB stick created and added only two small files to his filesystem and it worked...for him (maybe becasuse he was on a different Distro )

Ralink RT2870 USB Stick and created the two files mentioned in the post (network_drivers.rules and network_drivers.conf) and placed them in ETC... etc, etc! I rebooted the system but NetworkManager only lists it as "device not ready" ... So now back to square one.

Ubuntu Networking :: Get The Asus N13 WiFi To Be Controlled By The Network Manager App

Mar 11, 2011

I have eventually (a week's work) got my Ubuntu 10.04 to recognise my Asus N13 WiFi dongle (had to compile the source from Ralink with the "y" against the two things it tells you to if you want network manager to work (source that came with dongle wouldn't compile) and then set up rules (for some reason the driver - rt2870sta - wouldn't recognise the dongle until the rule about the vendor and product ID was in place; and the drivers that come with Ubuntu wouldn't recognise it even with the rule in place)).

Big thank you to chilli555 for all of the posts that got me this far.I would like to use the Network Manager app that comes with Ubuntu, to control the dongle. At the moment it will aknowledge when the driver has been loaded (have to do a modprobe), but does not "see" any of the many WiFi routers around my house, so I can't click on one to select one.

My only guess on this is that, to get the dongle to work I copied the config file that is part of the driver source files into /etc/Wireless/RT2870, and this is getting in the way. However, I have tried removing it and the network manager still doesn't work. Or is it because the network manager needs the dongle to be called "wlan0" and it's called "ra0"? If so, can you aliase this?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Only Temporarily Connects On Asus EEE 1000HE?

Jul 4, 2011

I've got an Asus EEE 1000HE, and it's worked fine for a long time with the EEEBUNTU distro (a distro based on Jaunty (i think) with a custom kernel). Unfortunately, Eeebuntu is no longer maintained, so I recently did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04.2. I am now unable to get my wifi to work reliably.

The wifi tries to connect for a while, then pops up the "Wireless Network Authentication Required" window. If I hit "connect" it will try again for a while, then pop up the window. Etc. Note I know that my connection information is OK. I haven't mistyped the password (see below). Also note that the wifi antenna is turned on. For example, iwlist scan is able to find my network.

There is a weird twist though: The netbook is always able to connect through an ethernet cable on eth0 just fine. If I boot the netbook with the ethernet cable plugged in, the wifi instantly connects as well! I can then unplug the ethernet cable (eth0 goes away), but I am still able to use the wifi connection for about 5 minutes before it disconnects, and goes back to trying and failing to connect.

This behavior is 100% replicable--the wifi always works fine (for about 5 minutes) if it boots with the ethernet cable plugged in. Very rarely, the wifi will also connect on boot without the ethernet cable, but that is not replicable.

Other EEE netbooks seem to have issues with multiple wireless drivers, like in this thread. Perhaps something similar is happening here? My card seems to be using rt2860sta as a driver. I tried blacklisting it, to see if another driver was trying to load instead, but that just negated my wifi altogether. (It's unblacklisted again)

My router is a very reliable Linksys WRT54GL with factory firmware which has never been flaky.

I'm at my wit's end. This netbook will be useless without wifi.

Below is the suggested information for a first post:

Here's lspci (note there is nothing listed as "Wireless Brand" to grep out):

Code:
lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GME Express Memory Controller Hub (rev 03)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GME Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)

Ubuntu Networking :: WiFi Disabled After Fixing Suspend Mode

Jan 9, 2011

After fixing an issue with sleep mode, my WiFi is automatically disabled on my Ubuntu installation on boot while the switch is on. For some reason, it seems that Ubuntu has an issue communicating with my BIOS. As a fix to this problem: I disabled the C4 sleep state. My Ubuntu installation now boots up fine but the LED on the WiFi indicator glows orange, indicating that it's off; while in Windows it glows blue, indicating that it's on.

Ubuntu Networking :: Asus Eee PC 1005HA Drops 50% Of Incoming Packets Over Wifi?

Oct 30, 2010

Pinging out from my netbook (over wifi, to any host) gets ~0% packet loss. Pinging into it (from any host) gets about 50% packet loss.

The router is a Dlink-DIR615 (rev d, running DD-WRT v24-sp2) but all other hosts on it ping eachother fine. I've tried changing routing, disabling IPv6, using older kernels and using wicd, all with no luck. The wireless connections is at 100% most of the time. This could be a new problem with Maverick, but I may not have noticed it before. I believe this is causing web browsing to be really slow and causing SSH timeouts.

I haven't tried madwifi drivers or nsidwrapper yet.

Edit: just booted into Windows and it has the same problem. Could it be a hardware issue? Also tried with a static IP, with no change.

Strangely, a normal ping gets 50% packet loss, but ping -A gets < 1% loss.

Edit 2: no packet loss at all on eth0.

Code:
# uname -a
Linux hulbert-laptop 2.6.35-23-generic #36-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 26 17:03:18 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.10 / Asus EeePC 1001P - Can't Connect To Internet - Only Wifi

Feb 5, 2011

Just got a secondhand Asus EeePC 100P netbook, fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10, and while I can connect to my wireless network and access the router through the browser, I can't connect to the internet. Pinging any other sites, either by domain name or IP, doesn't work. I've tried various things suggested in similar threads (putting in the DNS server info manually, disabling ipv6, restarting about a gazillion times), but nothing's worked so far. (My other computer, a Mac, can connect just fine.)

Attempted to install ndiswrapper, failed miserably, and I'm not sure if that's just for situations where the wifi itself doesn't work?

I'd be very grateful for any suggestions.

Here's what's under Connection Information at the moment:Interface: 802.11 WiFi (wlan0)

Hardware Address: 1C:4B6:85:13:F4
Driver: ath9k

Ubuntu Networking :: Asus EEEpc 1000H Wifi In WPA-PSK Mode No Longer Works

May 5, 2010

I have an Asus EEEpc 1000H netbook with both Ubuntu and WinXp. I just updated from Ubuntu 9.1 to 10.04 and I can no longer connect to my home WiFi!

I have a Netgear router and the network is WPA-PSK password protected. All other devices can perfectly connect. The netbook can under WinXp and could with Ubuntu 9.1. Now, with the 10.04, it keeps asking for the password but never connects. Obviously I triple checked the password and there's no chance of a mistype error.

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

Ubuntu Networking :: Source Of Disabled Wireless?

Jun 28, 2010

My wireless was working fine for about a year using 9.10 until I installed an update about May 28 2010. After that my HP laptop did not recognize any wireless routers including my Netgear. In early June I upgraded to 10.04. My HP laptop has: product: AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter vendor: Atheros Communications Inc. Dose the following apply when looking for the source of my disabled wireless found at: [URL]

Setting wireless regulatory domain via module option no longer supported. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS enables the CRDA wireless regulatory framework for controlling which wireless channels are usable and visible in a particular location. If you previously had to use the module option similar to that below in /etc/modprobe.d/options.conf to allow access to certain channels in your locality then you may find that wireless will not function at all: options cfg80211 ieee80211_regdom=EU You should remove this kernel module option on upgrade from releases earlier than Ubuntu 9.04 and use the iw*reg command instead.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Disabled - How To Re-enable

I checked and it says wireless disabled, however wireless is grayed out when I right click on network manager. I have -no- idea what to do. I've never seen wireless just die like that. I popped open the cover but the wireless card is fine. I re-seated it, booted back up, still no sign of it.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Disabled / Enable This?

Sep 10, 2010

I updated from Ubuntu 9 to 10 some while ago and can no longer connect to the internet via wireless. The computer is a Medion 96290 with a USB wireless card. Running "lsusb" gives code...

This tells me a driver is installed but it may not be the correct one. I copied this driver from the Windows driver file.

Network Manager shows "Wireless Network" greyed out and "wireless is disabled".

WICD shows net8187b as the installed driver and that the hardware is present.

There is a wireless switch on the keyboard which it was not necessary to use in Ubuntu 9 and is inoperative in Ubuntu 10.

I have searched through and applied many suggestions without success and have posted this problem on a couple of forums, again without success.

Ubuntu Networking :: HP Pavilion Wireless Enable/Disable Button / "Wireless Disabled By Hardware Switch"?

May 11, 2011

I've had a host of problems since upgrading to 11.04 Natty Narwhal, so let's deal with these 1 at a time.

I've got a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G60 laptop. Next to the power button is a handy wireless on/off button. This has always worked well with previous editions (9.04,through 10.10). first press toggles the wireless off, second press toggles it on.

Not so in 11.04. The toggle off works great, first time. But, it will not toggle back on. Not after any number of tries, not after restarting, not after booting into other OS's (9.10 and Vista) re-enabling it there and then booting back into Narwhal. to further complicate the issue, this feature bypass the network manager, so toggling the wireless off by the switch leaves me showing no wireless adapter in the network manager. I also restarted, switched from Unity to a Gnome session, but the issue still persists.

As my only network options are wireless, this has become a substantial inconvenience.
----
EDIT: so the network util is actually saying "wireless disabled by hardware switch". Also noticed it I enable it in 9.10, reboot to 11.04 (where I inevitably fail to re-enable it), then reboot into 9.10, it will initially be disabled. The key difference is in 9.10 I have the ability to enable wifi using the hardware button. It seems that 11.04 is remembering that wireless is disabled between boots. Is there a place it might be storing this value? If so, I may be able simply to set the value as enabled, since toggling that silly button isn't working.
-----
EDIT 2:
found this thread:"Wireless disabled by hardware switch" bug? - Natty
seems to be a similar issue. I'll be following how that one develops, too.
