Ubuntu Networking :: Getting To Recognize Wireless Card?
Jan 7, 2010
Moving this to new topic, since it's no longer under wireless connectivity issues. [Noob Warning] I was having trouble getting Ubuntu to recognize my wireless card, as I have changed from the 3965 that came in my computer to the 4965, which added increased range and G band. Anyway, I read one of the threads on here, and this was the advice given:

Today I deleted Windows on my Dell Latitude D610 and instead installed Ubuntu 10.04 on it (I had a cd with 10.04 on it from when I installed it on my desktop a year ago). Everything runs fine except I can't get the wifi to work, and it won't recognize the driver either, actually it doesn't recognize any drivers.
just installed ubuntu but it doesn't recognise my wireless card. I'm running an emachines g720. Ive tried looking through some previous posts but the terminal thing frightens me to death really.I've tried looking through the idiots guide but i'm afraid i'm a better idiot than that.
i'm run'n knoppix 6.5 (i think) from a usb stick. under 'ifconfig' it finds 'eth0', but when i put in 'iwconfig eth0' it says: 'eth0 no wireless extensions'. i've tried other linux live cd's but to no avail...interestinly enough, when i run a linux (ubuntu) live cd on my virtual pc it hooks up(?..i figure bcuz its reading from da virtual ethernet?) further more, i researched it to the conclusion that the driver is not being detected. i tried ndiswrapper (under 'puppy') but tht didnt work either ( i've downloaded the lastes version of ndiswrapper and i plan on trying it again w/ the installation disk of the wireless card). however, even in my research i've seen there seem to be a difficulty in getting this particular driver to work? (netgear wg311v3 - wireless g pci adapter) how i can over come this problem? i'm kinda new @ linux, but i like the challenge. it doesnt matter wat linux system (the responder) i'll download it. but i'm really trying to get 1 online cuz i have to learn how to work the packaging systems.
I had Karmic a while back, but i got rid of it becasue of my Bcm4312 Wireless Card would not recognize the STA driver, or bcm43xx.In that time i learned a bit of command line stuff. anyways now that I have my internet working, I was just wondering What I could do with ubuntu. I am interested in the command line and Programming. Where could I learn more about the 2 subjects?
I can't get on the Internet at all not even through Ethernet. (It recognized my Ethernet hardware but doesn't connect.) I got the broadcom-wl drivers from Packman and installed those and it still was a no go. I tried to get the drivers straight from Broadcom and those didn't work. I couldn't compile the source code from the Brodcom site because i could not get build installed (got make installed but build just didn't install.)

I just did a new install of slack 13.1 and i cant seem to be able to get my wireless card up. my system is a new ish dell laptop,a vostro 3700 to be honest im not even really sure where to start here. if i ifconfig i only get my ethernet and my loopback and if i "iwconfig" i just get told that i have no wireless extensions. yeah not sure what else to add.
I have a problem with my Grundig's (model GNB-250D) laptop wireless card. I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 and tried to use a wireless connection to browse the internet but it didn't detect any, it seemed strange as it worked perfectly on Windows. I can browse the internet fine if I use an Ehternet cable.
my cisco wireless card model # wmp600n. Fedora doesn't even recognize that its there and i haven't been able to find any linux drivers for it, tried installing the driver using wine but still isnt working for me...
i have installed centos 5.1 but it won't recognize 2nd nic card (eth1). i was unable to install the driver supplied by the cd. i am using intellinet gigabite pci network card. the network card recognize by centos 5.3 but i need to use centos 5.1. i also tried another intel gigabite adopter but it also won't recognize by centos 5.1.
I have used a wireless LAN PCI card for 3 years and now I want to switch back to the onboard wired LAN card but I cant get it to recognize and I have enabled it in BIOS also the wireless LAN card has been removed.Should I put it back in and then try to switch?
My problem is the computer does recognize the wireless connections but when I put the wep key It just start trying to connect and then asks for it again, and this goes on and on and on. I'm pretty sure I got the key right so I have no idea whats going on. This happened to me to with the previous version of ubuntu and also with fedora and installations in virtual pc, or virtual box. Even normal installations with partition. This time I'm using wubi. I didn't get anything with the grep part, I must have done something wrong.

I'm trying to get Kismet up and running with Ubuntu 10.10 and I'm using an Atheros AR928X, but I don't know what to put in the etc/kismet/kismet.conf file under the line source=
Do I need to install madwifi drivers, or are the drivers that come with Ubuntu sufficient enough? I've been reading other forums and on Google that I should put source=madwifi_g,ath0,madwifi but my device is not ath0, it's wlan0 as shown with the lspci command.

In some other forum on UbuntuForums someone said to make some changes under SYSTEM>>ADMINISTRATION>>HARDWARE DRIVERS, but I don't have HARDWARE DRIVERS under that submenu. I don't see an option for it anywhere in my version of Ubuntu (Maverick 10.10).
I have recently bought a Toshiba Portege R700-15Q and installed kubuntu 10.04. A similar problem happens with kubuntu 10.10 booted from USB stick. I am a long-time linux user but not experienced with fixing problems. The wireless network is not enabled and it appears that linux does not know that there is a wireless capibility. This is both with and without an ethernet connection at boot. The wireless light on the computer is lit up, but when I go to Manage Connections the wireless and mobile broadband tabs are greyed out so can't be accessed.
iwconfig gives "no wireless extensions" for lo, eth0 and pan0. lspci returns "Network controller: Broadcom Cooperation BCM4313 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)" lshw -C network returns "*-network UNCLAIMED", along with a block of other information which does not indicate a problem to me.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Server. I can't get my Wireless Card & Wired Card to work at the same time. My interfaces file is incorrect, when I comment out 1 of the interfaces the other works. I have attached my interfaces file.
I installed Kubuntu 9.10 using wubi (dualboot with Windows 7). There were no network connections available, even though I have two that can be used when I switch to Windows. After two hours I got tired of trying to fix the problem and rebooting to no avail, so i uninstalled and installed Ubuntu instead. I've still got the same problem, and after hitting a hole in my wall and shaving my head, I have no idea how to fix the problem. How do i get Ubuntu to recognize my wireless network?
I am exploring Ubuntu 8.10 on my Asus netbook without yet installing it. While using Ubuntu I cannot get it to recognize any wireless networks.Is this because I am only exploring Ubuntu and it has not yet been installed? The networks are recognized when using the XP operating system.Will Ubuntu recognize the wireless networks once it is installed as the operating system?
I had the same problem with normal ubuntu, wubi or even after instaling it in a virtual pc
I've got a wireless router with a WEP security, when I choose my connection and put in the key it just tries for some time and then ask me again for the WEP key. And it goes like this on and on and on, I've tried to connect at some firends gome with the same kind of connection and it doesn't work either.
I think that in an older version I did connect to an unprotected connection but I cannot take out the protection because it is my roomsmate wifi.
I have been waiting on installing ubuntu on my mid 2010 MBP 15' for a while now. I was wondering if the dynamic GPU switching was supported yet. Does Ubuntu recognize the intel card and can I use it over the nVidia card?
