I installed wheezy on my Acer Aspire One netbook and am unable to connect to wireless networks.Output of lspci shows this as my wireless card:
02:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01) I installed the firmware-atheros package to get the card up and running. Output of iwconfig shows I have a working interface:Quote:

I recently installed Ubuntu 10 on my netbook and it won't connect to the net via wireless. I have researched various sites but have not seen a resolution. One site says to disable the b43 driver by using System> Administration>Hardware Drivers but I don't see that option in my system under System>Administration?
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.
I installed lucid netbook edition on my friends netbook and I am unable to connect to their wireless. The netbook is dual booting with xp and while in xp it is able to connect but once i boot into lucid it is unable to.
setting up a netbook's wireless access point (to allow remote connection to a network drive connected to the netbook). I know this sounds daft but there is a reason.I just switched workplace and have all my projects on one drive.However my new workplace's network only assigns ip to certain Mac addresses. So I can't just plug in the network drive.My new work desktop is MS loaded, warranty sticker sealed and shared so I can't change this.Well I will, but not in the first week.
The simplest solution I thought of was to bring in my ubuntu netbook connect this to the network drive and wirelessly connect the netbook to the new desktop this via a wireless USB dongle.I connected the netbook to the network drive with no problem using the wired card. I done this by adding
auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.4.1 network 192.168.4.0
For the wireless bit, on the netbook, I right clicked on the network indicator icon and selected "Create New Wireless network" then entered a network name and WEP passphase.Over to the desktop (XP). I plugged in a wireless dongle, get it load the driver then selected my new network and entered the passphrase. It came up connected and sure enough I check and it got assigned a sensible IP.
All seemed well and I even connected my android phone with no issues. The phone and desktop can ping each other. However for some reason I can't actually ping or ssh to or from the netbook.So whilst it's happily providing the wireless network it can't use it itself.
p.s. Incidentally I am allowed to plug in USB drives so this isn't an access issue or me trying to sneakily circumvent rules. I even told my IT department about the wireless dongle plan.
I have a new Acer Aspire One, model D250-1958. It uses the Atheros AR928X. I've tried Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 and Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04, as well as the conventional Ubuntu. Everything works beautifully, except no wireless. The netbook picks up the signal, but when I provide the Key it fails to connect, and eventually prompts me for the key again.
I've tried to research this on my own, but haven't found a solution. In particular, the solution reported by narnie for his Acer Aspire One D250-1584, <HERE>, didn't work for me.
I'd really like to get this working. The netbook will be much less useful if it can't make use of our wireless router.
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 just dual-booted my Acer Aspire 3810TZ laptop with Ubuntu 10.04. When I first tried to connect to my home wireless network, it connected fine. However, now whenever I start the laptop, it will not connect. The network appears in the available networks list, but it fails to connect. I know the network is ok, because I can still connect to it fine from Windows.
My network adapter is Intel Wifi 1000 BGN. Apparently (from [URL]) the drivers for this card should be part of the distribution.
I can't understand why it connected once, but (without any changes to the system at all) it won't work now.
This is baffling me but I am easily baffled/baffeld? I carefully followed these instructions to install a a working driver http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=760568. It all went fine, my wireless light came on and it detected my wireless network. I know my WPA2 code (I can connect on the same computer in windows 7) and my keyring code. but I still can't connect it whirs away for quite a while before giving up and saying not connected.[Code]....
I have had a router die on me and have bought another (maybe a bad buy!) The new router is Linksys WAG120n. Ethernet is fine. Laptop wireless adapter is Atheros AR5009 802 11a/g/n. I have setup a wireless connection but it is not connecting to it. I have checked the router settings and these seem to be OK! I'll try to give any details required.
I ve just install ubuntu 10.10 and am unable to connect to wireless connect. I was able to connect on the try ubuntu before install option. I have dual booted Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10. I have tried connecting without the WEP key and still no luck. Just found it strange that connect on try it but not after full install.
At the very begging of my ubuntu experience (2 days ago) I was able to check the "Enable Wireless" bar up in the top right corner, but I was unable to connect any wireless networks, cause none would show on the list. Using nm-tool i get this info:
I installed 11.04 ubuntu 2 days ago. I have had thousands issues trying to connect to my wireless network router dlink di524. My wireless card is a dlink dwl g122 ver c1. I can't connect to the network no matter what configuration I try.
- first time i tried to connect i had static ip settled on my router so I tried to configure Network manager from GUI. I couldn't connect; it kept trying to connect forever. so I completely removed from terminal NM (using guides on internet) e installed wicd: same problem. Tried to configure manually network/interfaces file. Didn't work. Reset router and set dhcp . Tried everything again first with NM and then wicd. Didn't solve. Reinstalled ubuntu, fearing I messed up with some configuration files and reset again router. No solution
Tried pinguy os, zorin e linux mint . Nope Borrowed a network card from a friend after reading dlink dwl g122 could have some issues with linux. Tried this realtek card : same problems as above. Finally I tried again after the fifth reinstallation of ubuntu. Both NM and wicd keep saying wrong password. Changed different password. Password is fine of course (i'm using it now with win) So I Reset router password to none. Now it says: "acquiring ip address" and keep saying that forever. So i tried the last attempt: I tried to connect from zorin5 live to the same wifi network.. Ok so I happily reinstalled everything again (zorin5). first access after installation: same problems as above
Now I'm using win7 on the same wifi network, router, and same card (cards) and everything works fine at first attempt.
What has changed to the wireless function and possibly the use of the ndiswrapper in 11.04.
I originally install ubuntu 9.10 and immediately upgraded to 10.04. I have just now decided to upgrade to 10.10 and then to 11.04. Everything went ok and all still worked fine up until the upgrade to 11.04.
I've checked my settings and they are fine. The power light is still on my wireless card but no connection?
Firstly, the actual problem I'm having is that when I start my computer (netbook) up in the morning and try to connect to the router (wirelessly) it just... doesn't work. I've used it before, at full signal strength, and it was completely fine. It never disconnects me or anything - but if I shut down my computer, like I do overnight, when I start it up again often it's hardly getting a signal at all (or so it says) and when it tries to connect it makes the connecting animation and occasionally flashes to a circular thing like firefox's loading animation. Eventually it just fails.
I try restarting my computer, but it doesn't seem to help. The last time, I had to wait until the signal looked "full" again, then delete the settings in "edit connections" for that router and only then would it let me log in again, even though I was using the same password from the same computer (even in the same place). That only seems to help when the connection looks "full" though, and even then, not always. Normally I'd try resetting the router, but I can't because it's locked in the next room (I rent a room here and the guy with the key is rarely around) but honestly I don't think the router is causing this, for a few reasons:............
When I try to connect to any Wireless Networks in Fedora, the option at the top of the screen is grayed out. I can only connect to VPN, a hidden network, or create a new wireless network. My wireless works fine on the Vista side, so I am a bit confused at this
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. I am unable to connect to wireless networks. I have a fresh installation of Ubuntu 8.04. I have installed Ndiswrapper (ndiswrapper-utils_1.8-0ubuntu2_i386.deb) and the GUI for ndiswrapper. The ndiwrapper GUI reports that the hardware was not found. Yet I am able to connect to the wlan using Windows.
I am unable to connect to any network, wired or wireless. Network-manager and wicd are both gone, as in no longer installed. Please don't tell me to apt-get anything. I have no network connection. I have tried downloading packages for nm onto a usb stick only to find myself in dependency hell which ended with the impassible error "Requires installation of untrusted packages".
Running Ubuntu 10.04 Unable to get Ubuntu to find the ASUS USB Wireless to connect for network. I got the Broadcom to work using ndiswrapper but the range on it is unbearable meaning I have to be in the same room as the router. Hoping this has a much better range.
