Upgraded to Lucid Beta2 on my 1000HE eee pc. Now unable to connect to wifi. Wifi searches, then decides it needs password. I enter the proper password and it searches again, but never connects. Here's the strange thing: Using latest 184.108.40.206-generic kernel, wifi will not connect. But, when I boot with 220.127.116.11-generic, wifi works fine.
How to upgrade to lucid beta2 from the command line. When I try 'sudo do-release-upgrade' I get this:

The first 2 don't apply as I'm on 9.10. I can't really remember if I have installed any unofficial software packages.
I have an old laptop that has bcm4306 (rev 3). I have used it to install several iterations of Ubuntu in past year or so, and the wifi worked just fine for Intrepid and Kermic, using b43-fwcutter.However, when I installed Lucid from scratch, I can't get the wife to work.It says it was installed properly, but I can't see any network around.
Upgraded broadband service yesterday and now using a combined router and modem (Virgin Media Hub). But I now have no wired or wifi internet connectivity on either of my ubuntu 10.10 systems. I tested it on my work laptop which uses Window and it works fine for wired and wifi.
With 10.10 I no longer have a network icon upper right panel to check, so not sure how to set up wireless. Both machines have static IP addresses and are able to ping each other but there is no internet connection on either.
I have only had a few weeks worth of experience with linux, so I'm probably considered a newbie at this but I felt like giving it a shot. I just configured my new Toshiba Satellite A505-S6969 to jaunty. Most of the transition is going well but I'm stuck with a few issues, one of which is getting my wifi to work. Right now I'm working off of an ethernet cable.spci returns

I recently upgraded Ubuntu 9.10 from 9.04 but I was unable to connect to the internet. I have a ppp connection and I used to make a DSL connection and then give the command 'sudo pon ppp0' and the net got connected but in Karmic Koala it just doesnt click. I switched back to 8.04 and its working fine with 'Roaming mode enabled'. There is no problem with my connection. And also if it gave some problems then I used to delete all the connections I made and then reboot and then 9.04 would make a connection by itself but 9.10 doesnt. I installed 9.10 within windows using wubi. Please help as to how should I connect to internet in 9.10? I am attaching the ppp0 file so u may suggest the right connection for me if I am wrong.
I can connect to the internet through wifi, but I cannot connect to anything on my network. I have a printer and a NAS, so I would really like for this to work again. I have a dell laptop with a Broadcom card.
an Ubuntu newbie here looking for advice. Apologies if this is a frequent question. I misplaced my Belkin USB wifi antenna recently -- I'd never gotten it working with Ubuntu as I lacked the original driver CD and hadn't bothered doing the footwork with ndiswrapper (without driver files, as Belkin just gives you an .exe) to get it functional. I'm currently living in a home where I can't be wired directly to the router, so I'm looking for advice on what kind of antenna I should get to replace it. Are there any manufacturers out there that provide Linux drivers out of the box, who make quality hardware?
Installed Lucid yesterday. Rebooted and lucid seen my wifi connection but after a few mins drops the connection and will not re-connect. Now, I cannot get it to connect at al even though the WPA password is correct, and rebooting to Win7 shows no problems there.Looks like it's back to go old wicd,
A lot of people have the problem to find themselves with Lucid Lynx 10.04 and experience massive issues when connecting to wireless - me too. As a service, here some relevant links which promise relief:
I tried all of them, and none reliably worked. Every solution which required re-association wtih the AP helped for some time, but nothing helped for long. First, don't let yourself fool by the disable IPv6 trap - while it is "enabled" it is acutally not used by Lucid! I have a clean install of Kubuntu 10.04 on an AMD64 Laptop with Broadcom STA driver: 03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4328 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 03) However I can reliably stabilize my connection for some time either by manually disabling WiFi with the hardware switch or disabling WiFi by software means and re-activating. This brings speed at par with Kubuntu 9.10 until some time. Can anybody confirm this behaviour?
Yesterday, I did a clean install of Lucid on a T42 thinkpad, with wireless card as identified by lshw below. I did the installation from within a live CD session, with wifi enabled.

On reboot into the fresh system and update I had the issues that others have seen with network manager not connecting, repeatedly asking for password and so on. Oddly enough, using a Netgear usb wifi dongle worked perfectly, so I thought there might be a driver issue. Updates did not help. The network manager icon would not appear in the notification area at all when attempting to connect to wifi in a cafe locally. Today, I did a fresh re-install from the same CD with the home wifi switched off and no internet connection on the laptop. No issues. Wifi is working perfectly at present. I had to make the home connection available to all users to stop the keyring password request (I use autologin). I'll be trying to connect at local cafes tomorrow (one has no security, one uses an ascii wep password, and a third has a WPA encryption)
Is it possible that the settings from the live session are carried over in some way and interfering with network manager in some way? (This all started because my minimal install (see signature) reached a state where it would not show the network manager icon when attempting to connect to wifis in cafes and colleges, which I need to do. I decided to reinstall to return to a known state. I may try a minimal installation and manual wifi connection from the command line next...)
I posted this on Launchpad under bug# 569445 and though I'm certain someone in our heroic development community will have a look at it eventually, maybe someone can help me here in the meantime, or at least provide some background info. Maybe a little reassurance that Ubuntu isn't broken for my Wifi is all I need.
Binary package hint: wireless-crda I do hope I've picked the right package for this. Investigators, feel free to email me with whatever bash commands you need me to find out more about the hardware. The problem is that wireless in Lucid is dying for me after about a minute or so, and the activity light on my netbook just flashes. The wireless monitor at the top of the screen still thinks it's connected. It's like it's out of sync or something.
This doesn't happen under Win7 on this hardware, nor does it happen to other devices in my house on the network. Also, I wasn't having this problem under Lucid Beta 1 I have an Acer Aspire (Olympic Variant) 1410 Win7 reports the adapter as Intel WiFi Link 1000 BGN The wireless router I'm using is a DLink DIR-628. The connection is OPEN.
Having played around with ubuntu a fair bit I decided to breathe life into an old thinkpad with a pcmcia wireless card, by following the minimal install instructions and using lxde window manager etc.. Everything works fine apart from the fact that I cannot connect wirelessly. The card picks up and lists connections but whenever I have clicked on a connection the dail spins and then it gives up.I installed network-manager and managed to get nm-applet appearing in the sysTray otherwise I would not even have known there was wireless connections there.
I was thinking there maybe some conflict with another network manager, does this sound likely?
I'm having an issue recently with Ubuntu 10.04 x64. Connecting to my wifi is not working. I believe it is some kind of issue with the router. On Windows 7 the only way that I could connect to the net was by copying the network profile to a usb flashdrive from another computer and loading it mine. The wireless signal just keeps attempting to connect.
I have Ubuntu 10.04 on my EeePC 1000H. I don't use this computer often but it has always worked before... I suspect an update did this to me. I've recently swapped wireless routers but all my other machines have been able to connect to the new router. I can see the SSID and the signal strength is high but when I try to connect to it, it just attempts for a long time then asks me for my password again. I am currently connected to wired network.
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 yesterday and my wireless didn't work so I searched a little and found a way to make it work; Uninstalled bcmwl-kernel-source and installed firmware-b43-lpphy-installer and b43-fwcutter. And it worked. But today I accidentally pressed the "turn off wireless" button on my laptop. I obviously pressed it again and thought it would work but it doesn't. Now I find networks and stuff but I can't connect to them. It tries for awhile and then asks me to enter the password which I do (it is correct) and then it tries to connect for a few minutes again and then it asks me for the password again.

I'm having a problem to connect to the network at home via wifi, open or protected. Using ubuntu 11.04, attached are more details. I've managed to get a successful connection on an open network at work.
i am tryin to connect to internet through wifi. for this i have to connect to router first and then open the web browser to put UN and PW. I am using ubuntu. i know UN and PW. I can connect to router but my(any) web browser cannot open the authentication page.
I just installed the XBMC from the XBMC live CD. I want to configure it in a way to auto-connect to internet. (my router is wpa-password protected.)
i know how to save the password and auto connect to internet from gnome GUI but not how to do it from command line. what should i install, change or configure in order to auto connect to internet? (using command line)
I am running 10.10 on a Toshiba NB255 netbook. Wireless works find for me at home and worked last week at a hotel. At home I just use WEP, and my office network uses WPA. I can connect just fine from my work laptop but not from this netbook. The network shows up fine in the network manager and it asks for the WPA password, but doesn't establish a connection. Every once in a while it will say it is connected and has full strength but I can't ping anything, and within a minute or so it drops again. IIRC yesterday it connected via wireless and actually worked for maybe a minute before dropping at it hasn't worked since. Like I said, this has worked on other wireless networks.
Here is some output from dmesg: Code: [55086.034476] wlan0: authenticate with 00:15:62:ff:6e:89 (try 1) [55086.037598] wlan0: authenticated [55086.037658] wlan0: associate with 00:15:62:ff:6e:89 (try 1) [55086.041880] wlan0: RX AssocResp from 00:15:62:ff:6e:89 (capab=0x431 status=0 aid=4) [55086.041891] wlan0: associated [55089.045810] wlan0: deauthenticated from 00:15:62:ff:6e:89 (Reason: 2) [55089.079974] cfg80211: All devices are disconnected, going to restore regulatory settings .....
So recently we switched Internet Providers. While we had Bellsouth, my laptop would connect to our wireless internet flawlessly everytime. However, we just switched to Charter because it was both cheaper and faster. But now, my laptop will not connect to our wireless. If I hook it up to an Ethernet cord, it connects just fine. I believe they gave us a new modem/router or whatever it is that sends out the wifi signal.
I have tried to connect with this laptop on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Backtrack 4. On Ubuntu and Linux Mint, after I enter the correct WEP key, it sits there and tried to connect for a minute or two, but then the window pops up asking for the WEP key again, even though it's still filled out.
When I tried connecting on Backtrack, it told me that it could not obtain an IP address.
