I just purchased a RALINK WIRELESS G PCMCIA WIFI CARD VISTA/LINUX (UBUNTU). It is supposed to be UBUNTU plug and play out of the box with no driver downloads needed.
I installed it but could not find a way to search the active Wi-Fi networks available like on my Actiontec card on windows xp. The wireless router/ethernet I have is an Actiontec setup for Qwest-DSL and Actiontec is the name of the wireless network.
Strangely I tried to choose setup a "new network" and entered Actiontec as the network name and it found the network and said it was connected to it. However the internet still is not working?
I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my IBM thinkpad a30p. now everything seems to work fine, except for the wifi card (edimax ew-7708il) i have. PCMCIA modules are loaded, but the card just doesn't appear in the network devices...
I have Lucent Technologies Orinoco Silver 11 Mbps PCMCIA wifi card. It worked perfectly in Fedora 10, but after updating to Fedora 11 it stopped finding any wireless networks. The updating were done with automatic updating utility. The card works perfectly in Windows, I tested it today.
My laptop is HP nx6110 if that matters.
Here is the situation:
When I plug-out the card, the Network Manager disables wireless networking as it should. When I plug-in the card, wireless networking is enabled, so the system seems to recognize the card in some way.
If I try to connect to "Hidden wireless network" (because there isn't any wireless networks listed in the Network Manager) system tries to connect for a couple of minutes, and then asks wireless settings again. Orinoco card's lights DOESN'T blink normally when connecting to the network (one light should blink rapidly and one should light continuously, but both are blinking rarely or doesn't blink at all).
In System->Administration->Network in tab Hardware (hope those names are correct, I use Finnish version of Fedora...) is:
It seems that the card is detected right.
Here is what I have done to get the problem solved: In System->Administration->Network I have tried to connect to the wireless network manually (disabling the Network Manager). I can't get the connection. It gives me random error messages, sometimes "Check the cable" or something like that, sometimes just timeouts IP determination.
I have tried to connect different wireless networks, no connection. All tested networks worked with another computer.
No matter if I reboot or service network restart or plug-out plug-in the card... the problem still appears.
Tried to find (and reinstall) drivers:
No Matches found
Here is the output of lspci. The output is the same if the wifi card is connected or not.
I'm running Joli Cloud 1.2 on my HP dm1z netbook and for some reason, it doesn't seem to recognize my wireless card. Because the HP dm1z has no ethernet port, I had to use a USB adapter to connect to the internet.
I am using a Linksys wpc600n wireless card that works fine in windows xp, but will not even power on in ubuntu. I tried to use the pccardctl command to get the card to turn on but it still does not turn on.
some time ago I installed 8.10 on my x20 thinkpad. I at the time was trying to get it going on a Netgear WG511 v2 card. I was eventually successful in getting it going with ndiswrapper and all has been happy until...
I decided to give my laptop to an elderly friend for his first computer. He is living in a location where (for a variety of reasons) he is sharing a network connection to the internet with a few people. The protocol there WPA2 TKIP (IIRC) and no matter what the bloody thing won't connect. Here at home I run a different setup so its not a big deal
So, I thought I'd try another card to get it going there. I chose a "Aironet" card (badged a Dell 4800 LT) and tried to install this on 8.10
I expected it would install out of the box, but did not "seem to".
I followed the steps on this page, but still it won't connect to my WiFi at home (which I am using to connect to with this x31 thinkpad)
I am using Network Management Applet 0.70 and this works fine with the Netgear card, even showing all the local networks it finds.
When I plug in the Dell card it blinks the activity light and the status light in seemingly meaningful ways, but nothing seems to connect and I find nothing listed in the Network Applet.
I suspect that the OS is discovering the card as when doing an iwconfig I find two entries that would be that card:
eth1 and wifi0
iwlist scan returns:
which makes me think two interfaces are taking the same hardware...
iwconfig returns idential results for eth1 and wifi0
Older laptop I just upgraded to FC13. I would like to use a Dlink DWL-650 pcmcia card. The system sees it.
#iwlist wlan0 scanning Cell 01, mac, chan, freq and everything else for my base router Cell 02, same thing for my extender unit ifconfig wlan0 wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0D:88:AA:AA:AC inet6 addr: fe80::20d:88ff:feaa:aaac/64 Scope:Link
ifcfg-wlan0 is set for DHCP. Notice above no IP. If ifcfg is given an IP/mask still no IP. So it seems to be up and running, just not accessible.
From the title of this post, you can see that I am having some trouble getting the Linksys Wireless-G broadcom card working. I have been doing some research and have heard that getting a broadcom card to work in Linux can be a real pain.
I have verified that Mint 10 recognized PCMCIA so I am good there. I installed Wifi-Radar to see if maybe it would recognize it but it did not.
When I type iwconfig, it does not show any wireless signals available. When I originally set up the partitions for this laptop, I used PartedMagic and was able to quickly set up the network on that with vertually no problem what so ever.
I finally got around to trying Ubuntu 10.04 on a "decommissioned" Dell Inspiron 8100 1.2Ghz P3 512MB RAM 40GB HD... and Ubuntu is absolutely AMAZING compared to Windows! I'm a Mac guy and honestly Ubuntu gives 90% of the Mac OS GUI and 0% of the "brain damage" of WinBLOWS...
The only thing missing in this laptop is WiFi which I want to do via one of the PCMCIA slots since the mini-PCI is a combo 10/100 network + v.90 modem card... and I need to keep the Ethernet port and fax modem capabilities.
What are the best "Plug n Play" PCMCIA WiFi cards for our "G" and "N" WPA2 ONLY Airport Express WiFi network? I'm new to Linux so I'd really like to avoid editing and replacing system files and drivers if possible to get a PCMCIA card working. I'd also like a card that works in WinXP Pro SP3 since this laptop is dual boot capable.
Any opinions on which of the PCMCIA wireless cards work the best out of the box? I currently have a USB wireless adapter but want to get rid of it and use my PCI slot on the laptop. I am currently running lucid. I would rather not have to mess around with NDISWRAPPER again, something that has a native linux driver would be great.
So here's the thing: I have a mobile broadband pcmcia card that worked just well on jaunty, but as I installed karmic it doesn't work, coz it mounts the card's storage but doesn't recognize the hardware. The help says I need the package 'udev-extras', but there's no such package for karmic and the one for jaunty doesn't work with karmic.
I had Ubuntu 8.04 and the D-Link Wireless WNA-1330 PCMCIA card worked just fine. I upgraded to 10.04 and it fails. I can see the network of wireless routers in my neighborhood, but when I try to connect on WEP 40/128bit with my hex key of my router, it tries to connect but can't get a DHCP address. I cannot ping the router in that state, of course. I have two other 10.04 laptops (with built-in wireless) and they connect just fine, as does a Windows Vista laptop. I also tried the pci=noapi item in /boot/grub/menu.lst, but that failed to show any results either. The card lights up like it should, and acts just like it did with 8.04 on the lights, but it doesn't connect. I end up seeing the "Enter your WEP password" dialog again and again unless I hit Cancel.
I am trying to get an old IBM 600e to work with Centos 5.5. The install seems to have gone well but I am struggling to get any networking support. I am concentrating on a 3Com 3CCE589EC card which seems to be on the supported list. It works fine under Windows 2000 on the same computer so I believe the hardware is OK. When I insert it the following messages are shown in /var/log/messages:
pccard: PCMCIA card inserted into slot 0 pcmcia: registeing new device pcmcia0.0 0.0: RequestIRQ: Resource in use 0.0: RequestIRQ: Resource in use 0.0: RequestIRQ: Resource in use
Am I likely to have an easier time with a different card and if so which?
still stalling after all those months, everything is explained here
the card works fine in xubuntu jaunty, doesn't in xubuntu karmic or ubuntu karmic. i (my wife) wants to use ubutun karmic, but we still can't get this ATMEL PCMCIA wirelesscard to work on ubuntu karmic like it does on jaunty... and we have the windows INF drivers
I am trying to make a d-link dwl-650+ pcmcia card work through ndiswrapper method following the direction at:[URl]... The first step there is to install the "kmod-ndiswrapper" via yum.
But, how would I just download this package to a usb drive so that I can transfer it to the laptop that needs wireless networking. Is there an option in yum where I can just download the package, not intstall, so that I can save it somewhere?
get WIFI working on my Dell D600 with Ubuntu 11.04 freshly installed.

I am running (K)Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 64bit on a Dell Latitude E6400, WiFi Card Intel 5100. Never had any problems with networking. Up to about 2 weeks ago. I do realize there have been quite a few posts with this network adaptor, but non really described the problem I have here.
What happens is that suddenly the WiFi LED on the computer stops blinking, the WiFi connection gets disrupted, and the device is not recognized anymore when checking ifconfig. Only cold restarting the machine helps then... it will work for a while (between 1 and 20 minutes) and then crash again.
On Windows 7 the card works perfectly fine. With Ubuntu 11.04 in Live CD mode I have the same effects (connection crashes after a while). Also tried booting an older kernel, no success.
My exact hardware:
I notived the following problems in /var/log/kern.log
I acquired an old Compaq Evo laptop and installed Kubuntu on it. Bought a second hand wifi card, a DEXLAN IEEE802.11b (Having Googled to check it would work with Linux).
It detects wireless networks fine, and is able to connect to open ones, but I can't log into the home network with the password which works fine for Windows laptops.
I've tried every configuration of the router I can find, and followed the advice at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...untu#EasySteps but with no luck. It just asks for the password over and over again without connecting.
I just installed Debian with the latest testing iso, and I'm having problems connecting to the web via browser. I can ping hostnames (i.e. google.com, debian.org, etc.) from the terminal and it resolves just fine, but if I try to load a page from Iceweasel or Epiphany it says the page won't load because it can't resolve the hostname. Can someone tell me what I'm missing?the detail that I'm running amd64. I've checked iptables and found no entries, and for good measure I flushed it to be certain. I also checked resolv.conf but that looked normal, just a nameserver entry pointing to my home router. I'm new to Debian, but have used Linux for years, and I'm genuinely stumped. I'm sure the solution will smack me in the head for its simplicity, but nonetheless I need at least a shove in the right direction.
Moving this to new topic, since it's no longer under wireless connectivity issues. [Noob Warning] I was having trouble getting Ubuntu to recognize my wireless card, as I have changed from the 3965 that came in my computer to the 4965, which added increased range and G band. Anyway, I read one of the threads on here, and this was the advice given:

Everything runs fine except I can't get the wifi to work, and it won't recognize the driver either, actually it doesn't recognize any drivers.
i have installed centos 5.1 but it won't recognize 2nd nic card (eth1). i was unable to install the driver supplied by the cd. i am using intellinet gigabite pci network card. the network card recognize by centos 5.3 but i need to use centos 5.1. i also tried another intel gigabite adopter but it also won't recognize by centos 5.1.
