I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04, Wireless doesn't work I don't even see a wireless option in the Internet connection drop-down menu, Ethernet is working however first try It said connected eth0, but now it doesn't show it's connected but it is, the wifi card is BCM4311 the common one, it has a signal up turn on switch on the front but it doesn't turn it on...
I have a problem with wifi network,installed ubuntu a few days ago.I have bcm 4312 wireless adapter, activated the broadcom STA driver, until this moment i didnt update the OS,just out of the box OS, with activated wireless STA driver.After reboot ,the wifi was working, it found some networks, but it wont connect.Im trying to connect to a WPA2-personal , AES encryption network,i type in the password, im 100% sure i type it correctly, but it wont connect, it just asks for password again and again.I was thinking maybe i should update the OS, and i did it, after the update, i checked the STA driver, it was activated, working fine, but this time Network Manager didnt find any networks,as if there is no wireless device.How can i fix this ?
i just got ubuntu yesterday and had to play around with some settings and the fw-cutter tool to get my wireless working and it was...although i upgraded the kernel to 2.6.32-25-eneric...and it stopped working. the simple solution is to use the previous kernelersion...the wireless works there, but thats just not good enough for me ... it recognizes my card is there it just wont connect. originally i was using b43 driver and now it does not show in the system>hardware drivers list only the sta driver does, although when i try to install and activate it i get the error message "sorry, installation of this driver failed.please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log"
I am trying to install Fedora 12 on my Acer extensa 5635G notebook but i have a problem.
After i put cd into drive and choose boot from that menu, only thing i get is black screen, even tho i hear disk and dvd drive working.If i connect external display and then try to boot and install, it works fine on external display, but still no picture on notebook display.
Right after selecting [Install Ububtu] / [Try live CD], I get this message and the system freezes. The same message appears when trying to install Ubuntu from VMWare Player or booting from a CD instead of a USB stick. Has anyone else experienced the same?Processor Intel Celeron 900 Mainboard:Acer BA50-MVBios:Phoenix V1.3311Chipset:Intel GL40Video Card :Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset FamilyHard Disk :Western Digital WD1600BEVT-22ZCT0 ATA Device (160GB)My old HP Pavilion boots and installs Ubuntu 10.10 just fine from the same USB stick.

I can't get my wireless card to work. I downloaded a broadcom driver for it and i do believe its the right one, but its not helped. I'm running mint 8. The information on my internal wireless card i got using the terminal is:
lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 760/M760 Host (rev 03) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SG86C202 00:02.0 ISA bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS963 [MuTIOL Media IO] (rev 25) 00:02.1 SMBus: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS961/2 SMBus Controller 00:02.5 IDE interface: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 5513 [IDE] [Code]....
I've just worked out how to get the wireless card working with an Acer Aspire D260 wireless card to work. Enter terminal command; sudo apt-get install wifi-radar
Then reboot ubuntu 10.04 after it has installed, network manager should now detect wireless networks in range and allow connection, right click network manager icon and select "Enable Wireless" or "Disable wireless" as required to turn on or off. So many others have had problems getting the wifi to work with Acer Aspire D260 netbooks and ubuntu 10.04.
I have installed debian stretch on this machine, but can't get wired ethernet running. Using Slitaz live disc, the wired connection works. Guess I am missing a package or two.
Slitaz system (2.6.37) info reports:

I have just installed Fedora 14 on my Acer Extensa 4220. I am having trouble finding way to manage the built-in webcam: I surfed all the options on the menus and could not find the suitable application to do that.
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 onto my Acer Aspire D260 netbook.I find it much easier to use than Windows 7.Everything has been working fine until I recently tried going on the internet via battery power instead of my A/C charger. My update manager is showing that I am up to date and Additional Drivers is showing that the Broadcom STA wireless driver is installed and in use.
after finally getting this machine tot run with ubuntu i am now on an ethernet connection because all of a sudden, my wireless says its disabled. When iwconfig is entered, it shows my wlan 0 but says power management : off. It is so frustrating because I feel like there should just be a button that says to switch it on haha. Please help, my wifi was working, and after a boot it is no longer.
This bug has been around for years now?!? Surely this can be fixed by now, would somebody please feel this very common issue. I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Acer Aspire One 110AB netbook and everything seems to work fine except the wireless - I can connect via ethernet no problem.
While the wireless can scan for networks - it seems them but they seem to be rather weak signals and also no matter never connect UNLESS I turn off ALL WEP/WPA security clearly not an option.
Fresh install Ubuntu 10.10 on Acer Aspire 5050 with new hard drive. I struggled to turn the Wifi's button turn on but led light always on. It does not detect wifi driver. I installed ndiswrapper to get Acer's Winxp driver: netathr.inf by Windows Wireless Drivers from Ubuntu Software download. It's same thing as ndiswrapper.
I'm fairly new to Ubuntu. I'm struggling to enable wireless on my Acer Travelmate 2480. Wireless was turned on and off in Windows with a button which does nothing in Ubuntu.I think I must be missing drivers or something, but how do I get them if I can't connect to the internet?
I had UBR installed and working fine for a month or so, wireless and everything. Then I did a clean re-install while trying to add WinXP to half of my drive.Anyway, with the new install, my wireless chip (BCM4312 802.11b/g) isn't switching on at all. I've tried installing the Broadcom driver that appears when I run Hardware Drivers, but that doesn't help.With the old install, the wireless switch and indicator light on the front of the netbook worked, now nothing.
I am running the 64 bit ubuntu 9.10 and cannot connect to the Internet. Everything appears to be working (and recognized) yet no connection. My Atheros eth0 (wired) works all the time but my eth2 (wireless Broadcom wireless does not under Ubuntu Linux) everything works well under Windows 7 (dual boot). Using WEP security. Shouldn't eth1 be the next scheme after eth0? Would eth1 be controlled by my wireless switch whereas eth2 not?
It's a Acer Aspire 4520 Laptop running Vista Ultimate. All Drivers are working fine except Wireless. No wireless adapter is shown in Device Manager. Acer website was no help at all, has the drivers but no adapters for download. This laptop shows that it has Acer signalUp, also shows 802.11b/g WLAN on the sticker. I've downloaded Athero AR??? wireless driver, did not do anything to help the problem, downloaded the broadcom one also and it did nothing. Works fine on the LAN cable but no wireless.
My Acer's Wireless randomly stops working until you fully shut down and start the computer.(Not Restart but Shutdown->Powebutton) I am using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid.
I am wondering if anyone knows why it would stop working properly, and/or how to fix it?
And since this is a off and on problem I might not be able to provide details immediately from time of crash, since I need my computer on the wireless.
One symptom that really stands out is that the cooling fan is spinning as fast as it possibly can and processor usage is spiking around 80/200 on a process called phy0.(relevancy unknown)
As I was typing this post on my other computer, my laptop crashed and I lost the lshw -C Network output I had. If asked to, I will post the one from when it is working. Also I will post any other info you need from when I can.
Have a dedicated Fedora 10 laptop so that I can learn everything I need to know. I am using an Acer Aspire 3000 with a fresh copy of Fedora 10 and KDE
The Aspire 3000 has a built in broadcom wireless card, with windows XP you activate the wireless using an LED button on the front of the laptop, but with Fedora I can't seem to do this.
I have found a couple of threads to fix this error on Ubuntu but nothing about fedora. I don't want to change OS as I have just about got this system running like clockwork. I have left the wireless until last as the normal LAN works fine.
Ok, so I upgraded my acer aspire one to the new Ubuntu 10, and at first everything was working fine, except the audio. Now, for some reason, my wireless and ethernet ports have died. I can't get online by either method. I can do ifconfig <device> up and it will show up if i do iwconfig or ifconfig, but the wireless isn't associated with the AP. Currently I'm trying to load some drivers for my atheros card, and we'll see how that works outReally I was wondering, how come the modules don't load at boot time, and how can I fix this? I've been a Linux user for quite sometime, however I've been more of end user
I have installed Fedora 12 on my laptop and subsequently spent most of the day trying to get the wireless connection to work. Looks like I am not alone with Wireless issues Through searching and reading today I think the problem lies with the fact that the wireless on/off switch is not working. Under Windows, when I press the wifi toggle switch it starts flashing orange. I haven't managed to get it to do anything under Fedora.
I have a new Acer Aspire One, model D250-1958. It uses the Atheros AR928X. I've tried Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 and Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04, as well as the conventional Ubuntu. Everything works beautifully, except no wireless. The netbook picks up the signal, but when I provide the Key it fails to connect, and eventually prompts me for the key again.
I've tried to research this on my own, but haven't found a solution. In particular, the solution reported by narnie for his Acer Aspire One D250-1584, <HERE>, didn't work for me.
I'd really like to get this working. The netbook will be much less useful if it can't make use of our wireless router.
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 on an Acer Travelmate 290E computer. The installation went fine and everything was up and running until I wanted to use the wireless.
1. I got the "firmware not installed message" and installed the Broadcom b43 firmware.
2. I receive a new message: " wireless is disabled by hardware switch" (My acer does have a wireless switch that is switched to on.
3. After hours of research I tried to install Acer ACPI but my laptop model is not supported. I assume Ubuntu knows my wireless is there but thinks it is turned off, and the wireless switch can't communicate to Ubuntu properly.
I have already tried rfkill and all that good stuff. Doesn't work for me, Wireless is still hard blocked.
