Ubuntu Networking :: Installing A ASUS N13 Wireless Adapter?
Feb 21, 2011
recently I bought a an Asus n13 usb wireless adaptor. It came with the linux drivers installed and some brief instructions, but make failed and I don't know why. I am running ubuntu 10.10 (64bit) and gcc version 4.4.5.The error messages from make
[angus@angus-laptop 2009_0811_RT3070_Linux_STA_v188.8.131.52_USB-N13]$ sudo make

I recently purchased an Asus n10 wireless usb adapter to use with my media server, running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx). After spending several hours today with many of the threads (especially this one about the Asus n13) it seems that I've run out of ideas.
My network is running a hidden (non-broadcast) SSID ("Potato") with wpa2 personal encryption.
Here is the relevant information from lsusb:
Code: Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0b05:1786 ASUSTek Computer Inc.
Iwconfig follows. The rest of the values, like link quality & etc, are all zero:
I trouble someone to provide some assistance on how to properly install this thing and get it to work? I have been all over the web trying all sorts of different "tutorials", but most of them start off okay, and then I get errors in the terminal, or the commands in the tutorials become specific to one person's particular system, and I can go no further. I really want to use Ubuntu 11 on a system that currently is running the reprehensible Windows Vista, and if I could just get this Wireless receiver to work, I would be able to format Vista into oblivion.
So, can someone start at the very beginning, and help me through this? Please keep in mind that I am as green as a leprechaun when it comes to Ubuntu, so please make instructions verbose and geared to a layperson, if it wouldn't be too much trouble. So, the unit is plugged in, and ready to go. What's first?
I'm trying to use a D-Link DWA-130 wireless adapter with my desktop running Ubuntu 10.10. I've been scouring the forums (and google of course) and really can't understand why it's not working.The output from "iwconfig wlan0 is:Code:wlan0 no such deviceSo here is where I ask the stupid question: must you have a wireless card in the computer to use a wireless usb adapter? I built the computer myself you see and was looking to save some money.
I have Ubuntu 9.10, which I just now installed on my Dell Dimension 3000. The computer has all of its USB ports working perfectly; tested in Windows. I plugged in my SMC USB Ez Connect g wireless adapter, and it isn't even recognized by the system. I used lsusb, and nothing except the USB keyboard and mouse shows up. Every time I boot or shut down, I get tons of errors saying that it's "unable to enumerate USB device on Port...," then the port number of whichever port I plug the wireless adapter into. I've tried using ndiswrapper, and have completely installed the Windows drivers using that (which were the same ones that worked perfectly in Windows XP Pro). I've tried looking into compat-wireless and Linux Wireless, and have successfully installed the zd1211rw drivers and everything. The drivers install completely and work, there is just no hardware present, or so it says. This is what the terminal says when I type dmesg, and also part of what shows up on booting and shutdown:
I hope I've given enough information. Oh, and I downloaded Ubuntu a few days ago from their website, burned to a CD-R, installed, and downloaded all updates that it asked me to. Other than that and the ndiswrapper and driver installation, I've done nothing on the system.
I currently know next to nothing about networks in Linux (yes I am working on that). I have just brought a Asus n13 wireless adapter after failing to get my laptop wireless working. I am using the 2.6.32-5 Debian squeeze kernel. The device connected once after I did the following:
apt-get update modprobe rt2870sta iwconfig ifconfig wlan0 up
The device connected to wifi and was working fine. I then shutdown and rebooted to see if it would automatically connect on start up and now, although nothing seems to have changed and even after I repeated the steps above it did not connect. The network manager applet as well as listing the asus adapter(as ralink 802.11 WLAN) lists a Texas instruments PCI1410 pc card cardbus controller which i didn't before.
This is the output of iwconfig: lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wlan0 Ralink STA ESSID:"" Nickname:"RT2870STA" Mode:Auto Frequency=2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated Bit Rate:1 Mb/s RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Link Quality=10/100 Signal level:-39 dBm Noise level:-95 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon: ..... pan0 no wireless extensions.

am running Ubuntu 10.04 ... only because for some reason that is the only version that will load onto my IBM pentium 4 desktop! I installed ndisgtk, ndiswrapper-common and ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 by using the Synaptic Package Manager GUI. Using Windows Wireless Drivers GUI, I installed the driver rt 2870 off the Belkin CD that came with the product. Status is "Hardware present: Yes"
here is the status of my lsusb and iwconfig:
finn@finn-desktop:~$ lsusb Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 002 Device 002: ID 045e:008c Microsoft Corp. Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 001 Device 006: ID 050d:935a Belkin Components
It seems I have ndiswrapper working (I think!) ... but i still can't connect my wireless.
I have a desktop and I just installed ubuntu 10.04 as a dual boot with windows 7. My desktop has a wireless ZEW1642S card. I don't have access to a wired internet connection, but I can use the wireless on my windows 7 fine. It seems like there is no driver for it to work on ubuntu, and since I don't have an internet connection while in ubuntu, it seems I can't update it of course because I need internet to update. My wireless network does NOT have a password if that even means anything for this. I have the exe installer for the driver for it but I don't know how I'm supposed to get the INF file or whatever.
I just got my desktop set up with Ultimate Edition, an OS based on Ubuntu. For more information on my OS, please click: here. I am using UE version 2.6, which is based on Ubuntu kernel 2.6.32, so any Ubuntu users.I've gotten my wireless usb keyboard and mouse to work fine, and my speakers are ok, so I know my usb hardware is working properly. The Situation: I can't get my new ASUS USB-N10 wireless adapter to work. My computer hasn't recognized it, and there are no usable instructions on the driver CD for installing the device in Linux.ASUS claims this adapter works on Linux systems with 2.6-type kernels, but I've been trying for 2 weeks to no avail.
configuring my ASUS USB-N13 Wireless-N Adapter I was able to get the drivers installed as per the instructions I found in the forum but I'm not sure how to get the ASUS USB-N13 Wireless-N Adapter to be recognized by the drivers and how to configure it to connect to the Internet I tried following the instructions it came with but I did not understand the steps to set it up it was like chinese to me no clue what it said I am running Redhat Linux 9.0 on the laptop
I have a Asus N13-usb adapter and i am running ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop. I tried all those commands that you have posted but it led me nowhere. I was wondering if you can help me start off from scratch. I have typed lsub and it showed the device. I followed this thread [URL]and i did it up the part where you downloaded the driver. but i was not able to go further once i typed in the command :
I am running Fedora 14. I've had an ASUS wireless adapter working for a few months now, with no problems. Today, I installed updates, one of which required a computer reboot (not just logging out and back in). I rebooted the computer, and when it came back up, the wireless adapter did not work.The adapter is visible after lsusb, but there is no wireless showing after iwconfig. What happened? How do I fix it?
I have recently installed Linux Mint 10 on my laptop. When I look at the Device Manager in Windows 7, it says I have an Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. Right now, I am unable to connect to wifi with Linux. What drivers am I able to install, and how would I install them?
I have a Wireless PCI-Express Adapter which I wish to install the drivers, though am having difficulty. The chipset on my card is a Ralink. I have visited the Ralink Website Ralink corp. and downloaded the RT2860 Wireless Lan Linux Driver version 220.127.116.11. I have extracted the files within my home directory. I have read the readme file, and from what I understand I have needed to do... I have typed in the Make command as a "super user". Unfortunately I have had no success and it states the following output.
I have a old mac G4 and I just recently installed ubuntu 10.10 on it. It doesn't recognize my wireless adapter at all so I get no wireless on the computer. I've never used any linux distribution in my life so I don't have any idea how to install drivers for it.
I recently reformatted and dual partitioned to both Windows 7 as well as ubuntu 10.10. Loading works fine and Windows 7 is 100% operational. I cannot seem to get my wireless network adapter to be read by Ubuntus 'Windows Wireless Drivers' gui. Here are the steps that I have done THUS far, to make sure that we are all on the right path. Before I go any further, my wireless network adapter is an old school WUSB11 Linksys Wireless Network Adapter (running version 2.6).
1) Downloaded and installed "ndiswrapper" from ubuntu's main website. I downloaded the common, utils and ndisgtk files and installed them accordingly. 2) I extracted these three files to the desktop of Ubuntu and accessed the terminal page. 3) From terminal I typed "cd Desktop" to change the directory to the desktop. 4) Next, I typed in "Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-common_1.54-2ubuntu1_all.deb Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.54-2ubuntu1_i386.deb Sudo dpkg -i ndisgtk_0.8.5-1_i386.deb" 5) This installed Windows Wireless Drivers gui successfully and I can access it. 6) I have downloaded the driver files for the adapter from the cisco website and searched them for the required files needed. 7) After extracting the .INF file from the "Drivers" directory named "NETUSB.SYS" (I wasn't sure if the other associated files within the same folder needed to be present together with NETUSB so I moved everything to the desktop) I typed in "sudo ndiswrapper -i NETUSB.inf". After accessing the Windows Wireless Drivers gui I have noticed that the 'netusb' driver is present yet under it, the system states "Hardware present: No". This leads me to believe that maybe I installed incorrectly or my "fireware?" is not present? I was reading through the installation guide posted on the ubuntu website that in addition to the .INF file we also need the BIN file(s)? and SYS file(s)?.. The folder with the drivers for my adapter contains a BIN file but it is not within the "Drivers" section of the folder. 9) Upon mousing over the network Icon naturally my hardware is still not present. 10) From what I gather after the system finds the hardware I am to write into the terminal
I have a Belkin Enhanced Wireless USB Network Adapter Model # F6D4050 v2. The drivers are for windows but the windows wireless drivers app doesnt work. I see a tutorial for a linksys that appears to have the same chipset, but I am not sure if any of the steps need to be modified, also my kernel is a bit different. Here is my kernel:
Im a newb to ubuntu just wiped my brand new asus 1001p netbook of windwos 7 and put ubuntu netbook remix on it 9.10....Everything works great except the wireless...I know theres probally a billion topics on this, but i just need step by step easdy to follow guide on how to do this...I asked the IT at my work and he claims it cant be done, unless i switch out the internal wireless to a card that "just works", which im not comfortable with or use a usb wireless stick, which defeats the purpose of a netbook being so small....Im sure this can be done so please help me show up a IT that doesnt know linux .BTW the wireless card is a atheros thats all i know..
i installed ubuntu on my netbook after having a successful install on my asus g51 laptop.
everything works fine except the wireless. for some reason the netbook wont pick up internet via the ethernet connection so i went and got the drivers via synaptic and copied the packages plus the dependencies required (just needed one - dkms). dkms installed fine, but there was an error when i tried to install bcmwl-kernel-source. ubuntu still sees it as installed tho looking in ubuntu software center.
i rebooted just for shits and giggles, cuz it still didnt work. no dice. then i tried to check in that section that shows drivers that arent allowed in a default install as per another thread. its not in there.
my situation doesnt let me connect this netbook via wire and the only way i can get software for it is to download it via my ubuntu connection on my laptop.
I need some help getting my wireless card working.I have a ASUS PCE-N13 and I'm running ubuntu 10.10 AMD64.I have confirmed that the card works running under win xp.The problem I have is that it can't see any available networks.I have downloaded and compile the latest driver from ASUS rt2860sta 18.104.22.168 and added these lines to the blacklist file.
My Asus k52 BBR9 was working great with Meerkat until I put in all the updates.Now it won't recognize my wireless: it says were connected and the icon is clear or it is dark or has the icon look pulsing where there is my connection. But I can't get online.
I have been using ubuntu troublefree for some month, but yesterday, suddenly the wireless internet connection stopped working. It happened after i used the turn off wireless network shortcut, now i cant turn it on again (usually this works fine).The situation is now, that when i click on the tray icon showing connection it says, wired network disconnected (it never said this before), then if i click on the wireless shortcut it also says wireless disconnected... But if i click again it doesnt show connections, the disconnected sign just disappears...?
I've tried a few suggestions in similar threads.. to no avail. I thought I had it fixed a few days ago when I noticed that the wireless would randomly disconnect only on battery power. So I tried "iwconfig wlan0 power off" and then reconnected. It worked, for a while, but then after minutes/hours later it will disconnect and stay disconnected until I restart. If you need anymore information, let me know. I might need to be walked through the process; though, as I'm a worthless noob.
I haven't been able to find anything really useful on google either. Was hoping you guys could point me somewhere or explain a process that might work. What I've tried so far is downloading the driver from ralink and trying to follow their procedure for getting it setup. Following the readme I get lost at step 3 and attempting to make it, I get:
[boardbox@niflheim ~]$ cd Desktop/2010_07_16_RT2860_Linux_STA_v22.214.171.124 [boardbox@niflheim 2010_07_16_RT2860_Linux_STA_v126.96.36.199]$ make make -C tools
but this hasn't fixed my problem either. I can see networks but I can't connect to anything, so kinda still stuck at square one.
EDIT: Turns out in frustration and absent-mindedness I didn't reboot and that fixed it.
