Ubuntu Networking :: Not Detecting Network With 9.04
Mar 11, 2010
I'm trying to get my friend's laptop(acer travelmate 2200) to connect to his wireless network. I just installed a new hard drive and installed a dual boot windows xp/ Ubuntu 9.04 setup.
His laptop still connects fine with the old hard drive with windows XP installed, so I know the hardware is working.
When I click on the network manager , however, I don't see anything. Normally , I'd just hit the network manager and I'd see the available connections , but on this laptop I'm not detecting any.
The only thing I can think of , is that Ubuntu doesn't have the proper drivers needed for the wireless card in the laptop. But I don't know how to go about checking this since whenever I've done this before it's always just worked automatically.
Even thought my Westel Model 7500 has the appropriate green lines (Power, Wireless, DSL, Internet), it always takes my Ubuntu 9.04, Dell Inspiron 1545n considerable effort to connect to the wireless network. Please note that I am using WPA security and MAC filtering.Below is the series of events, spanning about 10 minutes every time I boot up the laptop.1. Tries to connect wirelessly automatically.2. Pop-up appears with SSID and password in dots.3. Tries to connect wirelessly4. Pp-up appears with SSID and password in dots.5. Tries to connect wirelessly6. Pop-up appears with SSID and password in dots.7.Tries to connect wirelessly then says "[SSID Name] now disconnected"At this point I manually connect to wireless and after 45 seconds it says "[SSID Name] now connected"
I have a 64 bit install of Ubuntu 10.04, I was surfing up to 11:30pm EST last night, shut down for the night, upon reboot am unable to connect to the internet or my local network. Ubuntu seems to think that I have no ethernet cables connected.My networking is controlled by my motherboard (Gigabyte P55A-UD4P) and the problem is not on my cable modems side. The modem has multiple wired jacks, all of them are unresponsive with my Ubuntu PC while my roommate can connect to all of them with his Windows 7 PC. Both network cables (the one connecting to his box and the one connecting to mine) are interchangeable: They both work on his and neither on mine, so there is no broken cable.I've followed the troubleshooting in other posts, here are some commonly requested diagnostics:
ifconfig -a Code: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 6c:f0:49:53:1f:c0
I am using fedora 14 on lenovo laptops and android 1.6 I created a wireless network on my laptop with create a wireless network. But it was not detected by my android 1.6 phone. Same wireless network created on my MacbookPro is detected by the phone.
moved to Fedora 11 but can't figure out how to get my wireless working. I have the broadcom driver installed and the Network Manager Applet shows the available wireless networks, but when I click on them they just don't connect.I get the following output on lspci regarding the wireless adapter:03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11a/b/g (rev 02)
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on an old family laptop. It is a Compaq Presario V2000. Everything works perfectly except no wireless networks are recognized, even though I know there are available networks. My network controller is detected but is not doing it's job, which is finding available wireless networks! Using "system testing" I found this out about my network controller:
"Detecting your network controller(s):
Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10) Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)"
I'm having a new problem with my wireless. It's detecting the network, but it won't connect. My Verizon card says it's WEP, but the WICD has three WEP options and none of them connect. What troubleshooting can I do?
My C++ program must be able to detect EVERY Wireless Network Interfaces under Linux operating system and display the interface names on the screen.How can my application achieve this?Is there any sample codes?Is there any third party libraries can do this?Notes: The detected wireless network interfaces should also include the virtual interfaces, like the one created by Aircrack-NG's Airmon-NG script.

I took the plunge and made a clean install of 10.04 because it sounded cool (and it is, I like it!) and now I'm tied to a wall again I've gone through several of the broadcom wireless card tutorials on the forums and the only thing I've managed to get is a lit up wifi light. It's not detecting an active unsecured network several inches away, that has computers up and running on it... I'm perfectly willing to post more details as needed.
Here comes my problem: I am installing a new unit with Fedora Core 5,I will use it as my internet server. I need one additional PCI network card but it is not detected during installation.what shall I do?
So basically what I am trying to do is install Ubuntu 10.04 on a Dell Poweredge 2600 server. Right now I dont care wither I get the server version or the desktop version, I just need to get it on their. this is what I have run into. When installing the regular Ubuntu 10.04 desktop for 32bit, the server just locks up on the very first ubuntu install screen and the keyboard lights just start blinking non stop. When I use the server version, the server get to the Detecting Network Hardware and locks up at 94% and the keyboard will also start blinking nonstop. I have looked all over for an answer to this problem and have yet to find one. This guy figured out how to make it work but he never mentioned what version he was using. [URL]..
On this server I have 6 HDs, 5 of them are RAID 0 with 1 Hot Spare. I have also tried using the ubuntu-10.04.1-alternate-i386.iso.torrent and still had the same problem. I have spent the last 3 days searching all over google and the forum to an answer but had no luck.
Installing stretch stops at detecting network devices. This is an attempt to install stretch over the top of Windows 10 on a Toshiba Radius 15 with 2 each USB2 ports and 2 each USB3 ports, and no RJ-45. Its wireless is based upon the Intel 7265. Just before the presentation of the wireless list, the system reports the need to install non-free:
and asks for media. Whether I respond yes or no, the driver selection screen comes up. [I have not been able to find those four specific files on the Internet.The network card screen comes up, I select the Intel recommended firmware iwlsifi, but the page just recreates itself and waits for a new selection. If I select either 'none' or 'not listed', the installation fails saying there is no network card.I have obtained from Intel their suggestion as of Aug 2015: iwlwifi-7265-ucode-220.127.116.11.tgz.I placed this on a USB stick in a subdirectory labeled 'firmware'. This was built from Windows 7 on a FAT32 file system.
There is also a Dynadock docking station that connects to the Toshiba via a USB3 cable. Besides video, USB,and audio, this has an Ethernet port. I have tried this connected to the laptop but it also requires a driver. I have placed that driver on the firmware directory of the USB also.
Are the four files listed above somehow inside the iwlwifi driver tgz?Is there a way to get the docking station drive to load so I can use its Ethernet port?
I have used Rufus to build the stretch USB from Windows. I do have a a Linux box I built with the same USB. I would use it but so far, I only have a command line on it and I have not figured out how to access debian.org to download the installation files nor how to put that on the stick.
I tried to install Debian 8.1 on Lenovo Edge 125, but on stage ''detecting network hardware' of install process my laptop stopped and froze, so I don't know what to do. (Previously I've installed Debian 6 or 7 on this laptop and every thing was OK).
I have Windows7 installed Oracle Virtual machine. On VirtualMachine i installed BackTrack4. I'm using datacard (India,Reliance ZTE EVDO3.1mbps) for my internet. I'm able to get internet on my backtrack OS via share using NAT. But when i try to use wireshake to trace my data i'm unable to trace the data send from my windows7 OS.
I have a USB modem working in windows. But no luck to connect using Ubuntu 10.04.
I have setup usb-modeswitch and other stuff. The modem is attached to port ttyUSB0. But when i run "sudo wvdialconf" it displays message like this.
Scanning your serial ports for a modem.
Modem Port Scan<*1>: S0 S1 S2 S3 WvModem<*1>: Cannot get information for serial port. ttyUSB0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 2400 baud, next try: 9600 baud ttyUSB0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- failed with 9600 baud, next try: 9600 baud ttyUSB0<*1>: ATQ0 V1 E1 -- and failed too at 115200, giving up.
Sorry, no modem was detected! Is it in use by another program? Did you configure it properly with setserial?

Code: ~$ sudo mii-tool -v eth0 eth0: negotiated 100baseTx-FD flow-control, link ok product info: vendor 00:07:32, model 17 rev 2 basic mode: autonegotiation enabled
Sometimes my network will be gbit, others it wont. Its quite annoying when trying to transfer large files to and from my server. Hardware is Asus K7 series laptop, which works "sometimes". Can't really determine when it wants to choose gbit.
If i mii-tool -r (renegotiate) it doesnt get better, and -f (force) doesnt provide the option for 1000baseT, only 10baseT and 100baseT.
First time ever switching from windows. Mainly doing this cause I though it would be fun to learn a new OS and see how it is.From watching a few videos it looked like all I have to do is click on the wifi logo at the top of the screen and I would get my router and a bunch of others (does this on windows) but when I click on it I dont get anything. I think it might be that im running this on a laptop. My wifi card is: Standard Dell Wireless 1501 802.11 g/nIts a new dell inspiron 5000 laptop i customized a little with more ram and a new video card.
Im guessing I will need to provide more info but as I said at the start Im new to this and not sure how or what info I would need to provide. Please just tell me how I can get any data you need and il get right on it. (I used Wubi to install this, went off without a hitch)
I installed the new ubuntu 10.04 distro using packagemanager, everything was fine intill i booted up today and there was no access points at all, i tried everything i could think of ( not a lot ),, so i decided to freshly install ubuntu 9.10 and start over, but there is still no scan results, from iwlist or any connections in networkmanager, i checked and the driver was installed and it was showing my card under iwconfig = eth1,
DELL 1545 INSPIRON and it's a BCM4312 WIRELESS CARD UBUNTU 9.10,
I would hope that the title gives my problem away, but my wireless card is not detecting networks. I'm a total new guy to the Linux world, so please be patient with me. I currently have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on a stock Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5965.
I've got two computers, with one (my current one I'm posting with) acting as a bridge for the other to access the internet (ICS, yay). Under windows there's no problems, everything goes smoothly on boot up. However I got a copy of Ubuntu 9.10 via mail a little while ago and got around to installing it today with the intention of updating it to 10 while I'm sitting here programming. Thus far, I haven't had any luck getting the networking to happen. As far as I can tell,
Here's what's going on:
Ubuntu sees the USB dongle Lights are flashing on it, it's got power and being interacted with Ubuntu's Wireless Network dock icon has entries for two nearby WiFi networks (my own with password, and someone else next door, also passworded so I can't try theirs) Ubuntu asks for a key to use with logging in After 20-30 seconds of trying it asks again for a key to log in.
lshw -C Network shows:
Sudo iwlist scanning correctly identifies two access points, however it can't seem to identify what the encryption type is on my computer.
I'm using WEP encryption for my Wii to be able to get online, and the password is set correctly (yay for show key). Looking at this computer's activity monitor I can see the mac address of the USB key.
Disabling password protection on my computer gets Ubuntu to recognize that there is indeed an unlocked network available now, however it fails to connect, once again.
Am I better off just ordering a copy of Ubuntu 10 on CD? Besides sneaker net with a 1 gig tumb drive there's not much I can do to get drivers over.
I run pidgin instant messenger via fbpanel taskbar via fluxbox window manager via xvnc vnc server via xrdp remote desktop terminal via sesman session manager.
One problem I've found is that Pidgin does not detect when I stop mousing or typing. I also run gnotime time tracker and it too is not able to detect when I don't type on the keyboard or move the mouse in my X-Windows.
Some questions:Is there a common problem? Is there a workaround? Is there a way to diagnose the problem?perhaps a program which says which window got the input which resets the idle timeout
Is there a way to examine or record the idle periods?
