Ubuntu Networking :: Detect Wireless Networks But Cannot Connect
Aug 1, 2010
I have a WLAN Driver Azure Wave AW-NU222 Wireless LAN Card in my Medion computer.
After installing Ubuntu it seems to detect the wireless networks in my area. However, when I try to connect to my network, it tries for several minutes and then times out with no error message. I have set up the credentials and also tried removing the encryption (WPA-PSK) from the network itself, but it still doesn't connect.
Connect via an Ethernet cable is fine, and I know that the network is good because I can connect via my Windows Laptop and various other wireless devices.
I suspect it's due to drivers, but I'm having trouble downloading a driver which I can try and install using Ndiswrapper. The Medion website just a windows executable when I try and download the driver specific to my machine when I really need the .inf file.
I am running Ubuntu 9.10 on an ASUS eeepc 1000HE, and my wireless card, RaLink RT 2860, is failing to recognize any wireless networks. It was working fine this morning, until I accidentally hit Fn F2, disabling the wireless card. I hit Fn F2 again to reenable it, but it no longer will detect any wireless networks (and other computers in the household do recognize them). I googled quite a bit and talked to a human about this but could not fix it. We tried dhclient ra0, which returned

I just downloaded and installed ubuntu netbook 10.4 on my samsung n130 netbook...love it, except for one little thing: it won't detect any wireless networks. this is how i connect to the internet at home so using an ethernet cable is not an option.i tried putting in "ifconfig wlan0 up" in the terminal, but all it gives me is "permission denied".
Right so I just bought an Acer TimelineX with a Broadcom BCM43225 BCM43225 802.11b/g/n WiFi card. With this card I am not able to detect any wireless networks and after googling around I found out other people have had similar issues. But my problem is kind of unique in the sense that I'm using Backtrack as my Linux distribution (I'm not a blackhat or anything, more of an enthusiast with no malicious intentions) Also I'm not a God at Linux so if you have any solutions please be verbose! I tried the following: [URL] But the Makefile spits out a syntax error. (Makefile:29: *** missing separator. Stop.)
I have a machine running Xubuntu [2.6.22-14-generic]. I have been trying to get this machine connected to wireless for ages, and I'm having another stab at it. So far I have install ndiswrapper and loaded the driver for a Linksys wireless adapter. The output of 'ndiswrapper -l' reports:
So as far as my newbie knowledge goes, I believe that step to be completed, correct?When I turn on the machine is type in
sudo sh modprobe ndiswrapper
to get the card running to where it will appear in the iwconfig dialog.The commands 'iwlist wlan0 scan' will list all the wireless networks around me, but I have been un-able to connect to any network, even unencrypted ones. I have tried to connect both through Wicd and command-line to no avail. For command-line I have used:
sudo ifconfig wlan0 down sudo dhclient -r wlan0 sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
With the final 'dhclient wlan0' commands, the following is returned:
There is already a pid file /var/run/dhclient.pid with pid 134519120 Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client V3.0.5 Copyright 2004-2006 Internet Systems Consortium
I have attempted to go ahead a step further and connect to an encrypted wireless network, however, I receive the same message, as well as another error message upon trying to enter the key, with the following code:
iwconfig wlan0 key s:"thekey"
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
I have an Atheros AR242x card. It can see my wireless network (WPA2). When i attempt to connect to the network it asks for the WPA2 passphrase. After entering the password it begins connecting but hangs up for about 3 minutes before saying wireless disconnected. The wireless worked for one day on a fresh install (Ubuntu 10.04)and then started doing this.
Here is a situation I have never come across (though I have only been using linux since 2004).I am running ubuntu 10.04 and using Wicd Network Manager.I can connect to my WPA encrypted home network, but if I go to my coffee shop to use their unencrypted wifi - I cannot.Even using the terminal. I think it is the way the device sees the network - but I don't know how to fix it.I have a screenshot with wicd here:And one with connecting to the essid here:Afterwhich, dhclient was unable to obtain an ipaddress - just like wicd above.
My iphone connected to this network easily without encryption or needing to use the browser to authenticate, etc.Any ideas on how to fix this?Specs:Samsung NC10lspci:
I have a HP Mini1000 and recently switched over to Ubuntu. I followed the directions found here:[URL] However, I still cannot connect to wireless networks though my card seems to be scanning for them and finding them. I have tried connecting to open networks and ones that require authentication.
Got Ubuntu 11.4 installed on my Lenovo Thinkpad X220.Except very very rare cases i'm not able to establish awlan connection.Scanning is possible at all times, monitor mode works as well.Network Controler (lspci)
So I was the one who couldn't get their ethernet port to function properly. Most likely, this was the result of bad hardware since none of the community's suggestions for software fixes did anything. I believe this is probably true.Indeed, when I bought a cheap $10 wireless USB dongle, it immediately worked better than all the previous things. It detected networks, displayed network strength and even allowed me to attempt login.
The only problem now seems to be that it cannot login. I've rechecked the password countless times, but it just shows the 'connecting to wireless' animation for a minute or two and then poops out and says, 'disconnected'.I assume if everything is getting me this far, the driver is not the problem with the device. Is this a safe assumption?
I've installed it no problems on my desktop and I really love it. Now I'm trying to install it on my Satellite and I'm having a couple of problems. When trying to connect to my wireless network, I can see my network, but it will just keep asking me for my WEP. I've confirmed that there is nothing wrong with the network or the password I've provided. Sometimes when I boot up, the network manager just says that the wireless networks are disconnected and can't find any. The wired connection always works just fine.
I have been trying to connect to a wireless network and cant get farther than the network settings window. I can do just about anything with WIN XP but decided Ubuntu was 100x better and more stable. I can't get Ubuntu to search for Wireless networks or connect to one i typed in manually.
For any one who wants to know: I am using a...
HP Probook 6555b (laptop) 2Gb RAM 160Gb HDD a/g/n wireless + BT XP PRO running side by side with UBUNTU desktop 10.04 LTS 2.09Gh AMD II P320 32-Bit system and FYI: I know "geek-speak" so no need to dumb-down or explain basic stuff.
so my wireless isn't working. My netbook wireless detects the available networks but when I try to connect it doesn't. The box that asks me to put in the password occasionally shows up but it still doesn't load. I even tried re-installing Ubuntu and didn't fix anything.I'm using kernel version 2.6.35-22-generic and
New Ubuntu user here, and I'm having difficulties connecting to my router at home. I've searched around the forum for a couple of hours now, to no avail. My router was originally not broadcasting ssid, so I turned broadcasting on. Now I can see the router, but when I enter a password (which I know is correct) nothing gets connected.
Basically, I just installed Fedora in my desktop (use it on my laptop), and have a big problem, which is that Fedora (13), detects my wireless card (Edimax nMAX EW-7728IN), but when I try to connect to my wireless networks (WEP & WPA) it hangs and asks again for the password. I know the problem isn't from my routers,since I'm right now connected via Fedora 13 in my laptop.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my Toshiba A200-12U laptop (with an Atheros AR5007EG wireless card), but networking is being problematic.I entered Network Configurations and tried to get 'Auto eth0' working -- I went to Edit > IPv4 settings and filled in 'Addresses' with the details of my connection:
Address: 192.168.1.254 (the local IP of my router) Netmask: 255.255.252.0 Gateway: 18.104.22.168
i'm running ubuntu 10.04. i've followed these instructions:[URL]that got the light for the wireless on my laptop to light up but it doesn't seem to be able to find any networks.when i click on "connect to hidden wireless network" and enter the details + encryption code. it spends a few minutes trying to connect before asking for my encryption code again but i know that the code i entered is right.i'm using a belkin router with wpa/wpa2 encryption. but i think it's a problem with the wireless on my laptop rather than a problem with my specific network because under windows on other machines in my house i can see some of my Neighbours networks
I'm running ubuntu 9.10 on my desktop.Wireless networks appear on the dropdown menu but when I try to connect to my home network the authentication box appears, after typing my password the box disappears and it continues to connect but nothing happens and after a while the authentication box appears again. So.. no internetz connected.
I installed fedora 12 for the first time last night, and I have been having a lot of trouble with my wireless. It is a Dell 1395 WLAN mini. I followed the instructions from [UR], but I still can't see any networks. Moreover, when I boot into windows I can no longer detect any wireless networks.
I have just downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop version and browsed the trial version without installing it onto my laptop. OK, I love it. I have decided to get rid of Windows 7 and install Ubuntu as the sole OS. However, I have got three questions before I do it.
1) Ubuntu couldn't detect any wireless networks. Was that because I run only the trial version? I am really concerned about it as I am a frequent Internet visitor. 2) Ubuntu preloaded movie and audio players couldn't play anything from my external HD. I got warning that plugin MPEG-2 System Stream demuxer was missing and couldn't be found (as I couldn't access Internet, I guess). I suppose I will be able to download the missing plugins. This leads to question 3) Once I download the necessary missing plugins, what am I supposed to do with them? How to install them?
I've read through the stickied thread about troubleshooting my wireless and I've made it to step IV 'Making a connection.'I installed the firmware that my BCM4306 required, then tried 'sudo usr/sbin/iwlist scan'
I have ASUS Laptop A6Rseries was running XP untill I installed Linux 9.10. Now i am having problem connecting to my wireless network. I am using Belkin router what works fine with XP, Vista and Windovs 7. Here is some information what I found

My son lost his USB Wireless stick for his Computer. I had thought I heard that if you had a second wireless router, you could use it somehow to detect the wireless router you have already set up in your home (like using a wireless card)? Is this what Ad-Hoc is? Either way, can this be done and if so how? I use a WRT54Gx2 Lynksys router and have a TRENDNET TEW-432BRP wireless router and also a spare D-link DI-514. I use ubuntu 10.04, and also wanted to know if I connected one of the router to his on the LAn port could he connect msaybe through an Ad-Hoc on my local computer here? He uses XP on his. I'm a newbie to linux and networking in general.
I just switched from Ubuntu to Fedora 13 because I was unable to get Ubuntu to connect to wireless networks. I tried everything suggested in help and forums, and kept getting "Bad Password" with WICD and Network Manager. Now, with Fedora...I still can't connect.
Problem #1: The guide says to "...make sure that the relevant wireless interface (usually eth0 or eth1) is controlled by NetworkManager," and that I do this via: System>Administration>Network
However, there is no Network option under System>Administration.
Problem #2: I open Network Manager, which displays a list of networks. I click on mine, configure it with WPA and the right password, and it fails to connect: "The network connection has been disconnected."
I have a broadcom 4322 with the broadcom-wl driver on Fedora 11. It worked the first time I used it, and since then is unable to detect any networks. I've tried reinstalling the driver, and it still does not work. Any suggestions?
I'm running fedora 13 but I'm having issues with the wireless connection, I can see all the networks in the area but when I try to connect it does not seem to accept the wep key.Its a Belkin receiver, could do with a little help as this is such a pain. I'm using a pc.---------- Post added at 05:24 AM GMT ---------- Previous post was at 04:59 AM GMT ----------This maybe some use but I don't know much about it.
