Ubuntu 9.04 running on a Dell C640 with a Dell TrueMobile 1150 wireless card. Works perfectly under XP. Ubuntu can't find it. Wired networking finds the internet perfectly (though I'm still working on getting samba set up correctly for file/print sharing on my XP LAN).
I'm thinking I need a driver, maybe? Can't seem to locate one.
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 trying to find out what is the difference between wifi0 and ath0 (atheros wifi card) in terms of packet counters shown in proc/net/dev pseudofile. The fact is that wifi0 and ath0 packet counters are different. I've read that wifi0 refers to the physical device and ath0 refers to virtual device over wifi0, so, as far as I know, packets counters in both devices should be the same, isn't it? Another annoying question for me is that ath0 doesn't show any erroneous packets, while wifi0 does.

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 just thought the last few days about trying Ubuntu. so i did. i got a nice and fresh copy of Ubuntu Desktop version and installed it, everything worked great except my wireless usb 2.0 card. the only internet connection i have under windows is Wifi and i hoped that my dongle will be recognized by Ubuntu automatically...(naturally, it wasn't the case.)
so my adapter looks exactly like this one here, except for the color, it's white and it has my WISP's name written on it (i got it from them, along with a cd that offers win xp/98/me drivers...)
so even everest sees it's atheros and it's the Atheros AR5523 chipset.
i also have windows 7 64bit drivers if they help...
anyway, i can't get it to work and cannot access the internet any other way when on Ubuntu, so i have to use an already-saved driver..
I have downloaded the driver installed it, and it works fine. But i can't get to turn it off. I do have the ability to unload the driver's kernel modules and the sysyem does not see my card after that. That's ok, but i'm thinking it still uses my battery power. The wifi led is always on no matter what i do. The fn+<wifi key> doesn't to anything.
i installed ubuntu on my friends laptop but when he tries to connect to his network and enters his wep key the box disappears for a few second and comes back again...The card is Atheros on a Toshiba laptop and it is detected , it finds the networks but the wep key is rejected every time without a error
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my old X30 alongside my fully working 8.04 and have strange wifi problems under 10.04 (under 8.04 it worked out of the box): - no available networks are shown - running "sudo iwlist scanning" results in "eth1 Interface doesn't support scanning : Device or resource busy" - without any wireless configuration from my side I get this: sudo iwconfig eth1 eth1 IEEE 802.11b ESSID:"gxC6isQxFFJxEC)xCDxBAxAB xF2xFBxE3F|xC2TxF8x1BxE8xE7x8DvZ.c3x9FxC 9x9A" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.467 GHz Access Point: None Bit Rate:11 Mb/s Sensitivity:1/0 Retry short limit:8 RTS thrff Fragment thrff Encryption keyff Power Managementff Link Quality=90/70 Signal level=-8 dBm Noise level=-147 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:63 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:1 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0 A very strange ESSID there appearing out of nowhere...
This is the issue, and I have had this happen with a few card readers. I have a Alfa Usb Wifi adapter model number AWUS036H using the rtl8187 Chipset. It works fine, unless I plug in my flash card reader directly to the board. If I plug it in to a hub it works fine until I put a card in, I was also having the same issues using a USB Video Capture unit by the name of EASYCAP. This was also happening in XP. Must be some driver conflict of sorts.
Im looking for a pci wifi card for my media pc, I would prefer wired, but we are moving soon , so i dont want to take the time to run a wire through the house. Im looking for one that will work out of the box with Ubuntu.
so I had to reinstall Ubuntu.But now my Wireless card won't work. It used to work before (plug and play), and I have no problem with it when I boot from the CD.I cannot use my cable connection because as soon as I plug my computer in, the network crashes, the router doesn't respond, gets hot and refuses to work until I unplug it and let it cool off for 2 minutes.I'm using Ubuntu 10.10, Desktop PC.

Reading recent posts, it seems that 11.04 has seriously screwed wifi. I have an Advent QRC430 laptop which worked perfectly until I upgraded to Natty. Now wifi is broken. The wifi driver is rt73usb. When I run lspci in terminal, no wifi card is listed. Running rfkill shows wifi hard blocked, but the switch on laptop makes no difference. I've installed and run Hardware Lister - this shows wireless interface "has been disabled"
i m using backtrack 4 in vmware.i want to use my laptop in built wireless card to search for the near by wifi access point which it is not doing,, my wifi card is " Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection"
Finally took the plunge and upgraded my ubuntu studio to karmic from jaunty. I seem to be experiencing a problem many have, being that my wifi card (edimax) which worked on my previous distro is now not working at all. I've done a lot of research and found the problem seems to mainly be with broadcom cards, and have tried a number of things relating to those that have worked for others, with no luck.
My problem seems to be not that the drivers wont activate or anything like that, my problem is that under hardware drivers nothing appears at all. I have no drivers present, where most people are talking of 3. i have not found anyone else with this problem. My problem is compounded in addition by not being about to use a wire connection at all.
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 LOVE Ubuntu,but the sketchiness with WIFI in Ubuntu is really frustrating (not that it's Ubuntu or GNU/Linux's fault necessarily). I'm trying to find a good WIFI card replacement for my girlfriend's MSI Wind u90, but seems both the Intel 3945abg and the Intel 4965agn - the cards usually recommended for that model - seem to be spotty at best in all recent versions of Ubuntu including the last long-term release. Has anyone had success with a Broadcom 1020 (in any laptop but especially in a netbook)?
I am currently using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. Although it has worked fine for the past couple of weeks, I have recently encountered a problem with my wireless card. It is an Atheros AR928X card on a Toshiba satellite U405D-S2874 model laptop. Recently, I attempted to put the computer into suspend mode for the first time. The computer failed to wake up, and I performed a hard reboot. After this, everything seems to work except for the wireless card. I am now unable to connect to any wireless network with my laptop, and the wireless manager doesn't seem to be working either.
I have an old Toshiba Satellite A30 Notepad. I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 onto it and everything but WiFi works. I've installed wicd and several other network tools but just can't get Ubuntu to let me use the WiFi connection (the option is greyed out).I know the card works because the last OS (Windows XP) used it without any problems. The card is detected, the drivers are installed and the hardware (slider) switch is set to on.I think the issue is related to the Radio Frequency Kill Switch being on but I don't know how to turn it off.The output from various commands are:
Im living in a student-city where we get one internet-cable in the wall each, if we need more we are told to use a switch. But, since ive got some tech that depends on wifi, I was wondering if its possible to setup my ubuntu to work like a sort of wifi-switch?
Basically, Im not allowed to set up anything that resembles a router..(so no dhcp) all i need is what a switch would do, only wireless and wpa/wep would be very nice
Atm ive got my cabled network plugged into my onboard ethernet-port, and ive got a d-link DWA-556 (Atheros AR5008 I think) wifi card that i wanted to use to share my connection. is this doable?
I have an emachines D620 laptop running Ubuntu 10.10 with a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01). I havent done anything with it and cant seem to get it to work. I know this because when I had visto on it the card worked, but know it says that its firmware is not enabled and ive tried installing the drivers using the Additional Drivers under Administration. I would like it to be working so I can use my laptop's internet.
I already have a wifi card- the netgear wg311v3. that had almost NO linux compatibility, so I won't make the mistake of buying any old wifi card again. What I want to know is, what's a good wifi card for Linux. Here are some requirements I have for it:
Preferably 802.11n support, but I could settle for "G" Out of the box support. As in, I don't have to use Ndiswrapper. Just pop it in, and let ubuntu do the rest I would prefer a USB based dongle, but PCI would be good too. I don't have any brand preferece.
I'm new to Linux and Ubuntu 9.10. I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 on an older Compaq Presario 6100. Initially my built in wireless was not working. I searched the forum and was able to get my wireless working (I think) by installing the BCM43XX driver. I assume that works on my computer since I believe the BCM4306 driver is needed. Anyway, assuming my wireless is working, my home network does not show up in the pick list when I go to network<wireless.
I've spent a couple of hours already researching this and up someone can help me out. I would really like to give this new system a try.
