Ubuntu Networking :: Get A Tenda W311u Usb Wireless Working In 10.4?
Jun 2, 2010
I'm new to Ubuntu and am trying to get a Tenda W311u usb wireless working in 10.4:-
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp.
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 14cd:8168 Super Top
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04b8:0007 Seiko Epson Corp. Printer
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Got the Windows driver disk and it includes an rt2870.inf driver, not 3070.
I am currently trying to set up my Tenda W311U USB WiFi Dongle under Ubuntu 10.04 (64-bit) on either my Latitude D620 laptop or Optiplex 745 desktop to act as an access point for me to use to connect my DS Lite & DSi (and let ONLY those two devices connect to it) to my network.
I have previously managed to do such under XP Pro by using the Windows drivers and control program along with bridging the dongle with the ethernet, but am unable to use that same method withing 10.04.
For those interested - I have no idea what drivers are running the dongle, only that it seems to let me TRY and access any wifi APs nearby, but won't let me set it up to act as an AP itself.
Edit @ ~5:50oam AEDT; I've been reading another thread which deals with the RALink 2800/2870 drivers (for the chipset in dongles like the Tenda W311U) and how to prevent the 2800 drivers from conflicting with the 2870 and followed the instructions so only the 2870 drivers are left. I've downloaded and unpacked the files for the 3070 drivers, but haven't tried installing them yet.
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.
Get my Tenda 311U Wireless USB working with my custom Debian LXDE system (Refer to signature for more)? When I insert the USB adapter nothing happens. PCManFM file manager does not even detect it. When I was installing my Debian system I made sure to check "Laptop" but not "Desktop Environment" and "Standard system utilities." Here is the link to the product page: [url]
I am using 11.3 (64-bit gnome) and have a new Tenda w322p wireless n card, this works absolutely fine under windows, but I also bought it due to reviews saying it worked with linux. The card appears in network settings as RaLink WLAN controller and uses kernel module rt2800pci, I have also tried typing in the network ssid etc manually but it hangs on exiting network manager (will post what it says later, after writing this) I used drivers from here:Ralink corp., and used the rt3062 one(5th one down?)
I have created my own wireless network which connects my windows laptop and my lexmark printer and bought (a while ago now) an PCI wireless adapter to fit into my Linux box.
The machine itself is quite old now but still going strong; however since i fitted the wireless card the machine won't reboot.
It'll start up and shut down fine but if i do updates which require an reboot to complete the machine shuts down fine. However it will only get so far as the Compaq splash screen and won't advance from there.
I have reseated all of the components, disabled the onboard lan, prioritized the hdd all TNA.
The wireless itself works fine however i believe the issue might lay in the drivers (might be using really basic ones. I have an installation disc however it was created for windows and obviously won't run (not in wine either).
I want to switch my laptop from XP to Ubuntu, but right now, i cant risk installing it. i dont want to have it partitioned so i can dual boot, so for now i only run the try-it-out mode.Before i consider installing though, i want to see if i can get everything to work ahead of time, that way im not regreting instalation. I have a Compaq Presario V2000 laptop, with 55GB hard drive and 516MB ram. So far, the trial mode is working great, but the wireless will not work. Ive tried to install the driver, but i am unable to do so. I have looked this up, and i have tried many things, and so far, none have worked.I was wondering if it was just part of the trial thing or not, but it is a Broadcom Wireless BCM4318 driver
When originally installing 11.04 I had problems getting my Ralink 5390 wireless card to work.
Today my computer froze completely and I had to turn it off via the power switch. When I turned it back on, wireless was no longer recognized! My iPod can connect to the network just fine, so it must be an Ubuntu problem. There are no problems with my ethernet connection either.
I researched this and found several threads about blocking and unblocking wireless devices using the rfkill command. Well, unfortunately for me the rfkill command doesn't work. When I type sudo rfkill list or sudo rfkill unblock all, nothing happens; it just returns me to my bash prompt. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling rfkill...nothing.
For some reason, i just cannot get my wireless to work in xubuntu. When i click on the network-manager applet, it only has the wired network tab and VPN connections, there are NO wireless networks displayed. I have also tried iwconfig, which returned
lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. and lspci: 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub (rev 07) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset PCI Express Graphics Port (rev 07) 00:1a.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #4 (rev 03)
I have a compaq nc6400 with the intel Pro/Wireless 3945 ABG card. It fails to find any wireless networks.the IWL3945 driver was installed automaticallyBut when searching for networks none are found, even though on any other computer in the house the network is found.According to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ha...sIntel#miniPCI
I have just installed openSuse 11.4 KDE 64-bit on a Dell M1330. When I click on my networking panel, it says WLAN interface is unavailable. I've followed the steps in the stickied post and found the WLAN hardware info, a screenshot of which is below:Uploaded with ImageShack.usNext it says to do this - you need to look at the logs, in particular the info in /var/log/boot.msg. To see this, you need YaST => Miscellaneous => System Logs and select boot.msg.In YaST there is no such option for system logs under miscellaneous, so I can't do that. The results of the sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan command produce the following:
root's password: lo Interface doesn't support scanning. eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.
i just installed Gosalia mad monkey on an old dell d520 latitude but cant get wireless working? i found how to set up my wireless connection butits asking for the default keyring password to unlock?i never set a password for this as it never askedi found this but i still dont understandit states" Typed in all the details, clicked Add and... �Enter password for default keyring to unlock�. Huh? I didn't set that... Tried the root password, tried the user password, none worked. The answer: Gosalia's team remastered Ubuntu with their password locking the keyring. Quite a funny situation. "
Just upgraded to the newest version of Ubuntu(unity), and my wireless isn't working. I have the 14e4:4315 Wireless Card so I followed this posts [URL].... And still have no wifi, when I click the icon in the menu bar it says under "Wireless Networks": "wireless is disabled by hardware switch", which ins't true because on my Vostro 1520, there is only one switch and it is in the on position. I've tried 3 versions of ubuntu and none of them work with wifi getting tired of it.
In the wake of a spate of posts complaining that wireless is not working in 10.04 here is mine. I'm on a (relatively old) AMD Duron 1.5Ghz, 1.5G memory with a VIA KM-266 motherboard. Wireless worked fine in 9.10. With a fresh install of the new 10.04, the usb wireless adapter is not detected, the tab to add a new wireless connection is grayed out, starting the KNetworkManager (did I got the name right?) does nothing (that is, no application starts), etc.note: if you are wondering how I am accessing the internet, I just fired up the 9.10 live CD, which as you can imagine is not the most practical thing in the world.Here is the info. The commands lsusb and lspci spit the following:
Code: grodrigues@grodrigues-desktop:~$ lsusb Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.4.2. The wireless worked perfectly in 9.04, but did not not work at all in 9.10, and now 10.4.2. I'm running a Planex USB wireless dongle on an ancient ShuttleXPC SN41G (circa 2003) - the wireless dongle is an XLink Kai GW-USMini2N. I'm connected right now on the Shuttle via Ethernet cable, but would really like to get the wireless up and running again. Here's all the info I could get as per the pinned topic instructions:
I have installed 10.10 a few weeks ago and was able to have a wired internet connection without problems. However I haven' been able to get my wireless to work. Here are the commands I tried which might give a clue to what's wrong to someone helpful... From reading other post, I think the gateway is missing but I am not able to set it up properly...
Code: lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile PM965/GM965/GL960 Memory Controller Hub (rev 0c) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile PM965/GM965/GL960 PCI Express Root Port (rev 0c) 00:1a.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) USB UHCI Controller #4 (rev 02)
I installed ubuntu 10.04 in my laptop hp 620 and wired connection is working but wireless is not working at all. I checked the old posts and when I enter the command "iwconfig" it shows the following:
lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wlan0 RT2860 Wireless ESSID:"" Nickname:"RT2860STA" Mode: Auto Frequency=2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated Bit Rate:1 Mb/s RTS thrff Fragment thrff Link Quality=10/100 Signal level:0 dBm Noise level:-87 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
I read in the older posts that the "Access Point: Not-Associated" should be "Access Point: Invalid" and the command that is used for this purpose is " sudo iwconfig wlan0 ap auto" and it did work-but for sometime, and again it showed me "not associated" when I restarted.
Previously I have had Linux installed on my laptop (OpenSUSE, Ubuntu) with no problems as far as wireless networking in concerned. Due to wanting to play a certain game (which I have since grown tired of), I reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Recently I have booted up to live DVDs of PC-BSD, Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and OpenSUSE 11.2 and I cannot get wireless networking working.
At home I use WPA2 Personal. I put in the passphrase into NetworkManager (the same as I do for Windows), and the computer gets an IP address from the router (I use 10.3.5.x at home). The problem is, I cannot connect to the Internets. If I do "ping -c 3 cnet.com" it gives me the proper response of 220.127.116.11, but if I try to go to cnet.com, I get a page cannot be displayed in Firefox.
I get this error for every website. I don't understand it seeing that I can ping the websites, but even if I put the IP address in the URL, it still doesn't load the page. What am I doing wrong? Everything is dynamic, as in Win7. But everything works perfectly in Windows, but no such luck in Linux. I know it must be something simple, but I'm at a loss. Seeing that I no longer play Star Trek Online, I'd like to put Linux or BSD back on my laptop, but no Internet is not an option.
I've bought an RALINK getnet Wireless USB adapter and am trying to get it to work on a dual boot pc running XP and 9.10. According to the forums and the manufacturers website (www.getnet.com.tw), this should be supported in Linux.
Using the disk that came with it, I have gotten it to work in Windows. I've spent nearly a day scouring the Ubuntu forums and trying different things, but still haven't got it working in 9.10. (I think that most of my confusion is that many of the threads are for earlier versions)
If I type "iwconfig", I get this:
Code: graeme@graeme-desktop:~$ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wmaster0 no wireless extensions.
I have the CD that has a LINUX directory, but am not sure what to do with it. Through other threads I have determined that my drivers are rt2870.sys and .inf and have downloaded these. I'm not really sure what to do with them next..... Many threads talk about going System>Administration>Networking, but I don't have this as an option. I have however got an option which I downloaded called "Windows Wireless Drivers" which seemed to let me load the rt2870.inf driver, but then says "No" after it (not very helpful).
I have enabled Wireless Networking, and added my SSID etc etc, but I still don't connect.
I spent days trying to figure out how to get my atheros AR928x 802.11n wireless card to work in Ubuntu. The card worked perfect in Windows 7 but the connection kept dropping in Ubuntu. It would find my router and connect with 60% signal for about 5 seconds, then fall down to about 25% signal and then cut out altogether. After searching for days to find a solution, I finally figured it out and figured Id post it here to let everyone else in the same boat have a working wireless too!
I found this solution from:[URL].. This solution is for JAUNTY (Ubuntu 9.04), so if you are running Jaunty, you can just follow that post. If you are using Karmic (Ubuntu 9.1), you can follow this tutorial I'm posting. It's pretty simple: First, make sure you got all your files up to date. Type in a terminal:
sudo apt-get update Let that run, and once its done, type into terminal: sudo apt-get upgrade Once that finished, restart your computer. Again open up terminal and type: sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-karmic
If you are using Jaunty, instead of karmic type in jaunty, if you use another version of ubuntu, you can find a list of versions and their names here:[URL].. Restart your computer one more time, and you should be good to go! This has been tested and confirmed to work on: -Ubuntu 9.1(karmic) with an Atheros 928x 802.11n wireless card, using the Ubuntu installed network software, in a Gateway NV53 laptop connected to a belkin 802.11n wireless router.-HP base station / 802.11g airport express
This has been tested and does not work/has issues with:
-airport extreme I hope this works for you too, and if it does, please let me know with your hardware and Ubuntu version so I can post here what other setups have been confirmed to let this work.
Have spent 6-8 hours trying to get the darn wireless to work. Started on Network Manager, switched to WICD, then back to Network manager. Have uninstalled and reinstalled driver a dozen times. When I go to System->Administration->Windows Wireless Drivers, get pop-up saying "Unable to see if hardware is present" When I click "OK" then network driver window says "Hardware present: Yes" and the driver is listed.First time user of Linux, and getting frustrated.I really want this to work so I can become as smart as all of you reading this post.
I am trying to get the RT2860 card in an Eee PC 1000 to work. I have tried Ubuntu 8.04 and 9.10, all the "fixes" below I can find on the web but nothing seems to work.
[URL] I downloaded the source code from Ralink and using module-assistant followed the instructions.
I can see the wireless network, it tries to connect but just keeps asking for the security key. I have tried WEP, WPA and no security at all but still no go. All works fine if wired. The F2 toggle seems to work OK, the WLAN is switched on in the BIOS. The "iwconfig" command shows the RT2860 in Ubuntu 9.10 but not in Ubuntu 8.04.
I need to get the wireless working on this HP dv9005us, I ran lspci and it says the card is "Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 1)" and so far I've tried the method that says "Installing drivers for the BCM4311,4312,4321,4322 Cards" on this page and in hardware drivers it says the Broadcom STA wireless driver is activated and in use. Neither iwconfig or ifconfig make any mention to wireless.
pulled the wireless USB adapter out of the back of my laptop when I was using it. I plugged it back in and it can see my wireless network, but it can't connect. Everytime it tries, it just shows the connecting icon on the top bar for a few minutes and then says that the network has been disconnected.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the USB adaptor, but nothing I've done seems able to fix the issue. Anyone know how to fix this?
