Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To Wireless At Startup?

Dec 5, 2010

every time i log in to ubuntu, i run this line to get the drivers working or something (not sure what it does, it just works):

sudo modprobe -a wl

where can i put this line so it automatically happens, rather than always having to run it manually @ the terminal?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Is Slow To Connect At Startup?

Mar 7, 2010

I am running 9.10 on my compaq laptop. I tried linux a couple years ago and was not impressed with it's operation on this machine (wifi didn't work, pain in the butt to make it work) but I just installed 9.10 and to my surprise, everything on this machine seems to work now automatically!

One minor annoyance though, when I boot my machine and the gnome desktop loads, it takes about 1 minute until the wireless finds and connects to my router. Granted, my SSID is set to not broadcast but I set ubuntu to find it as a hidden network and it does in fact work, just takes more time than usual to find and connect. Normally with windows, when it loaded, my wifi was present and connected immediately.

Networking :: Debian Wireless - DHCP At Startup - Can't Connect Once In Gnome

Apr 14, 2010

I am trying to get my intel pro wireless 3945abg working on this Lenny installation. My progress is as follows:

No wireless & LED (on the physical switch) won't turn on
installed NdisWrapper and netw5x32 driver
installed package "firmware-iwlwifi_0.14+lenny2_all.deb"


Still no wireless, but when DHCPDISCOVER runs at startup, it is apparently assigned an IP address using wlan0. This only happens when the cable (eth0) isn't plugged in (eth0 is set to static) which leads me to believe that the wireless really does work for DHCPDISCOVER.

What I want to know so that I can mess about with it more is how do I switch between drivers? What I have been doing here is


modprobe -r [old driver]

and then


modprobe [new driver]

The only thing is,ow I have to manually connect to my wireless network every time,which gives me a a great sense of accomplishment. I start the computermber having to edit a script somewhere to make it connect automatically on system startup, but I can't remember what it is I'm supposed to edit or how I'm supposed to edit it

Ubuntu Networking :: Network Doesn't Auto-connect At Startup

Jan 5, 2010

I have a Broadcom 4312 wireless chip. I have use the STA drivers that Ubuntu recommends. I can connect quite easily just by clicking on the icon, so this is more than a niggle than a problem.

My network isn't protected as we live in the middle of nowhere (quite literally) and network theft isn't a problem. We also run a self-catering cottage, and let guests have free access to our network anyway, so it is easier for guests to access our network without me having to give them all the key. When I did use wpa, it would start itself up with the laptop, so I kind of know that this might be the cause. Is there any way I can fix it without encrypting the network?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Card - WEP Encryption For Wireless Router Not Allow Me To Connect

May 5, 2011

wlan0 Authentication capabilities :


Those are my authentication capabilities, obviously. I am using a WEP encryption for my wireless router and according to this, it will not allow me to connect. Is there anyway to allow that? The wireless card works just fine in Windows, even on the same network encryption type. Using a Intel Wireless/Pro 4965 ag. Note* this is my mother's router and whatnot. She won't change it the encryption type.

Ubuntu Networking :: Tenda W322P Wireless Card Crashing Wireless Router On Connect

Jun 30, 2011

I installed a Tenda W322P wireless card in my dual-boot PC running both Windows XP and Ubuntu 11.04. The card worked straight out of the box on XP, but does not function correctly under Ubuntu. My apologies for any missing/irrelevant information, I am having to post this from the Windows boot so the Ubuntu settings are not directly available at the same time as internet access.I followed the process detailed here htURL...to install and configure the driver (I believe from reading other sites that this card is the Ralink RT3062 chipset), blacklisted the original RT2860 driver that was in use (couldn't even get the card to scan for wireless networks with the default driver) and restarted the interface.

Since then, sudo iwlist scan can find my wireless router but when I attempt to connect to it, it seems to enter a loop of requesting the WEP key then pausing for a while before re-requesting the key. I know I have the key value correct because it is copied and pasted from the same text file I used to copy and paste into the passkey field on the Windows boot. Attempting to connect to the router using Ubuntu also has the rather unfortunate side-effect of crashing the wireless router, killing off all other device connections until the router has been reset.

Ubuntu Networking :: WiFi With Wpa2 Encryption Doesn't Connect On Startup

Dec 27, 2010

I have xbmc, a media center shell that runs on ubuntu. I am trying to set up a laptop to run it and be a full time media center. so far it works great, I installed xbmc live, but the only issue is I have a wep2 protected wireless router and the wifi does not connect automatically.

I have it set up and am using wpa_supplicant once those commands are run the wifi works great.I am a novice in linux in general, and can not seem to get this to work on startup, can anyone point me in the right direction on this? I haven't been able to find the xbmc start up script if one exists, I figured adding those lines to it might work,does this sound like a reasonable approach? if anyone knows where that is and how it is defined to be launched on start-up i would appreciate it(I guess this is getting into the general Linux knowledge but still good info)

Ubuntu Networking :: Enable Wireless On Startup?

Oct 8, 2010

I have been having some problems with my wireless connection. I am having to start my computer 2 times in order for my wireless connection to work. The first time I start up, even after I enable wireless it wont connect. If I reboot immediately and enable wireless it will then connect. I would like to be able to fix this problem since it has become really annoying to me to have to boot my computer 2 times every time I turn it on. BTW Network manager shows auto-connect, however it also shows i month ago as to the last time the connections were used.

Fedora Networking :: Wireless With Inspiron 1501 Bcm4311 Rev01 / Trying To Connect To A Hidden Wireless Network?

May 5, 2009

I am having a little trouble connecting to my wireless network. Running Fedora 10 32 bit.I'm trying to connect to a hidden wireless network. I updated the firmware for my driver but apparantly the driver is still not working. Broadcom has a driver from their website for Linux 32 bit systems. Should I attempt to install it? I read a post where the driver is built into the system kernel. If so I would need to blacklist the one of the drivers. Correct?

Ubuntu Networking :: Enable Wireless Always Unchecked After Startup?

Nov 20, 2010

On my Lenovo IdeaPad S12, the "Enable wireless" checkbox is always unchecked after startup. After I check it, it automatically connects to the preferred wireless network. Is there a way to ensure that wireless is always enabled after startup? On my other PCs, "enable wireless" remains set properly after startup. It's only on my Lenovo that I have noticed this problem. I have poked through the various network tools to see if there's a preference setting for this, and have not found one.

Ubuntu Networking :: Disable Prompt For PUK / PIN For Broadband Wireless At Startup?

Jan 13, 2011

I've looked quite a bit, but didn't find an answer.

I have a Thinkpad x61s which comes with a "Sierra Wireless Mini Card module".

When I start up my computer, I get prompted for a PUK / PIN.

"Unlocking SIM PUK required" (sorry, this is a direct translation of the French, might not be the exact same words in English)
With three fields to fill:
Code PUK
New PIN Code
Reenter new PIN Code.

I don't have a card in my computer, and broadband mobile is not activated in networkmanager.

Does anyone have an idea how I can disable this prompt (I don't intend to put in a SIM card before some time).

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless LAN Does Not Connect

Apr 14, 2010

Installed Ubuntu 10.4 Beta on my Asus Eee 901 (the old Windows XP got tired...) Nice install, BTW, but Networking does not work. I have a very run-of-the-mill Linksys wireless router, which uses WPA2 passord authentication on the wireless side. Ubuntu clearly does try to connect, but then asks me for the password again, repeated a few times and then gives up. The SSID is OK (same I use on my Windows machines) and the same for the password, so it must be something Ubuntu does to the password. Bug or operator error?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Can't Connect - 9.04?

Apr 23, 2010

After playing around with 9.04 for several months and getting used to linux (I have tried several distros but like ubuntu the best), I decided to reinstall to have a clean system. My wireless has been working great using ndiswrapper. Now after re-install and updating the system, here is my problem. The USB Network Adapter is seen and the wireless network is seen but it never connects. It just keeps asking for the passphrase (I have WPA2 Personal turned on). I have tried turning off the wireless security but that doesn't seem to have any effect.

I have done the things I did before to get the wireless connecting - disabling the native driver (which doesn't work at all) as well as the broadcom drivers which seem to interfere with ndiswrapper. I also tried downloading and compiling the ralink native driver (v but that didn't work.Here is the setup:PC with dual core processors running at 2 Ghz3 GB ramUbuntu 9.04Belkin N150 Enhanced Wireless RouterBelkin N150 Enhaced Wireless USB Network Adapter (uses the rt2870 driver.)

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Will Not Connect?

Jul 7, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 x86 on my netbook. When I try to connect to the office WLAN I get the usual "%SSID% Connection established" but my network status icon in the panel doesn't change.

I then go online and sometime it works sometimes it doesn't. When it does work it is extremely slow. My first though was maybe it is because the router is set in mixed mode, this wasn't the case as my router at home is mixed mode and works fine. Then I thought maybe its the DNS so I set the DNS address to (googles open DNS server) - same thing, still slow.

Next I thougt it maybe an incombatability between ubuntu and the router, a collegue of mine uses ubuntu also (10.04 x86) and he has exactly the same problem.

When I connect to the router using a cat 5 I get a similar problem, the network status icon changes to connected but the connection is still extremely slow. I know it's not the line because pleanty of other PC's use the same connection and it's fine. Again when we try it on my collegues ubuntu machine its the same thing.

So at the moment I know its not my machine or the DNS or the WLAN
