Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Constantly On And Off Eee Pc Ath5k Driver?
May 23, 2010
Cannot get wireless to work. Hostapd.conf had nothing inserted in it so I put the following in which I found [URL]..So it connected right away and then disconnected after opening one of my tabs. I went back into hostapd.conf and it had erased all the info I put in there. Is there a way to keep it from deleting this info every time. Because it worked great for a brief second. Otherwise it just keeps going on, then going off. It stays off most of the time though. Right now this is what my iwconfig reads:
After an upgrade to 126.96.36.199-78.2.56.fc9.i686 in March, my Atheros wireless stopped working. (It had previously run without a hitch for 9 months). Anyway, I finally got around to working on it today and using the "WiFi misery" thread managed to consistently get it to start manually via these steps:ifconfig wlan0 up iwconfig wlan0 essid netname key xxxxxxxxxxxxx click on "activate" in network device control (gives error msg, but works)
During boot-up, I get "Invalid argument" errors for "SET MODE", "SET BIT RATE", and "SET ENCODE".Currently NetworkManager service is disabled, but when enabled doesn't seem to change any of the above.I'd like to get back to automatically coming up wireless, if possible.
I've followed a few different steps to try and solve the wireless issue, but no luck so far. I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 with Atheros 5001 "ath5k" driver and module. I use "WPA & WPA 2 Personal" security.I first did "rfkill list all" to see what was being blocked, and at the time, I had this:Quote:
0: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: yes
I have been running Ubuntu for 2 years and have not had a problem like this. Randomly one day my wireless dropped out. I can see other networks on my laptop, but they are all locked so i cant test and see if i can connect to them so i went to my friends house and was connect fine for over an hour.
Also my PS3 and my windows box connect to my router and internet just fine.
I then assumed that this was a hardware issue then with my wireless card on my laptop. So i called up lenovo and they sent me a new wireless card. I installed it and still had the same problem.
I'm using an Acer Aspire One d250 running Netubuntu 10.04. The wireless connection to my router fails at random intervals and spends most of it's time trying to reconnect. It will occasionally ask me to input the password to the network, which is already entered in the dialog box, and clicking "connect" doesn't seem to make any difference. Also, when it is disconnected from the network, none of the other computers in the house, wired or wireless, are having any problems. If there is any more information I could provide,
I am new to Ubuntu and am confused on how to fix my flashing wireless light issue. After browsing Google people are recommending that I make a script and put it into a folder, but when I try to put the file in there I get an error of "Error moving file: Permission denied".
I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 laptop and have one of those wireless light indicators. For me the light glows orange when the wireless is OFF and blue when the wireless is ON. In Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) the light was always orange, even if the Wireless was on, but my wireless worked right out of the box so I was grateful for that, but since upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) I've noticed that my wireless light alternates between orange and blue frequently and sometimes flashes madly when wireless activity is occurring.
I was wondering if there is a fix for this as it can get quite annoying, the light sometimes stays blue for a while but will ultimately keep going back to orange and vice-versa, my friend who also has a Compaq Presario CQ61 (Revised model of mine) has his wireless light constantly blinking orange and blue no matter what.The wireless itself works fine, I can connect to any wireless connection and use it without having to install anything else, so it does work out of the box, which again, I'm grateful for.The wireless adapter is a Atheros AR5001 Wireless network adapter. Do I need to install additional packages or drivers to get the wireless adapter to work properly?
i cannot find how to sucessfully patch the ATH5k driver for aircrack for better support on injection. i tried this...[URL] but it was a no go for me... first... i untarred it to my desktop, then i patched the ATH5k driver but batch 2 failed and i had to take out the switches in the patch command to work. can someone please give me (and im sure many other people) a litteral step by step to patch this damn ATH5K driver, i got another one i want to patch with i found on the aircrack-ng that i want to patch as well but the same issue is there...i run Ubuntu 10.04 with the 2.6.32-25-generic kernel, no custom anythings, not even compiz.
It has been haunting me for weeks and I haven't been able to fix it so far: When I installed the wireless driver 43XX series on my laptop using a wired internet, I saw the wireless network for a while and after I rebooted my system, My kernel(31) got corrupted and I got error "kernel Panic (and some sync error)",Thus I started using an older kernel(14),Now When I install wireless driver or mobile broadband driver(wvdial), they get vanished after the reboot and my mobile device modem isn't detected.But they are installed in my system(as shown by synaptic package manager but doesn't seemt to work) I desperately want to use mobile broadband.
How To: Uninstall/Remove Old Wireless Driver to make way for New Driver (RTL8191SE)?
Here's the new driver:
I have been having trouble with my wireless connection intermittently disconnecting and reconnecting repeatedly (sometimes every couple of seconds). I posted a thread about this here on Ubuntu Forums titled: Ubuntu 10.45 & NetworkManager Applet 8.0: Connects & Disconnects Frequently.
Using Wicd and it keeps dropping out or telling me "bad password" when the password is in fact correct. I even know it works because the first couple of times it worked, but the connection wasn't sustained for more than a few seconds each time. My reasoning is my wireless is functional in Ubuntu, there's no reason it shouldn't be in Debian. Wireless network card is ASUS PCE-N13. Ralink driver is installed. WPA-supplicant is installed. Gnome Network Manager is also present, though I've heard that it doesn't support my particular situation.
I have the source code to create a wireless driver. This came with the cd for my adapter but i dont know what to do. btw while i'm in ubuntu i will not have a wired conection to the net seeing as my routers down stairs and i dont have a cable long enough to reach
Basically today (1st of june) about 1.30pm my computer updated. I was on facebook at the time and was commenting on a post but didn't click "Send message". My computer went onto screensaver, So I unlocked my computer to find my keyboard wasn't working (But it was ok on the password lock). I then thought that restarting my computer might help the keyboard to work. I restarted my computer and as it turned on, my wireless icon had an exclamation mark next to it ("!") I clicked on the icon to find that only "Wired network" was only displayed, Before the restart "Wireless network" was there but it had disappeared. I've looked into it, and it looks like my wireless driver has been unistalled by the most recent update on Ubuntu. As far as I remember the wireless driver was Broadcom for a hp pavillion zd8000.
I did a few things to the drivers and the wireless aspect of my ubuntu system and I'd like to know how would I reset everything back to as if it was a fresh install (but only regarding my wireless drivers and all that jazz)?
I'll have to purge it and then reinstall it over a wired network.
im on compaq presario cq40 (amd64 turion x2) and recently install ubuntu.10.04 using wubi with dual os.. im installed wireless braodcom BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY 'bcm43xx-fwcutter_006-3_amd64.deb' driver for my laptop and restart my machine.. when i go to > hardware dirver, there is no driver installed.. any suggestion? or lists any driver compatible with my laptop..
as the majority of ubuntu 10.04 users I had problems with setting up wireless internet connection too. After reading many forum topics I somehow managed to set up the connection.Now the only problem is that when I restart computer wireless connection is no longer working. Each time I boot Ubuntu I have to go to System>Administration>Hardware Drivers, remove Broadcom STA wireless driver and then install it again. Otherwise the wireless connection is not working and under Broadcom STA wireless driver this message is written:
I am using Ubuntu 10.04. I installed the Broadcom STA Wireless driver from System -> Administration ->Hardware Drivers, and it seemed to work fine, but the next time I turned on my laptop, my wireless card wasn't recognized anymore! When I went to System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers, the driver was gone from the list! Where did it go?Update - Solution:his is hardware issue, not a b43 issue.
I downloaded ubuntu on my wireless netbook my wireless network connection was not working so i checked on terminal and it said it was unclaimed meaning that ubuntu is not recognizing my built in wireless driver (hardware) what should i do becayse ubuntu could also not find the ndiswrapper?
I just upgraded ubuntu to 11.04 and I need to install the wireless driver again. I downloaded the driver and I am getting the following error when running make:
./kernelversion.c:13:30: fatal error: linux/utsrelease.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. Makefile.inc:81: *** Cannot detect kernel version - please check compiler and KERNELPATH. Stop.
Here's what I already installed on my laptop trying to get it fixed.
I've got a friend who, after experiencing the horrors of Vista and me telling of the wonders of Linux, decided to switch. However, her Wifi is not working. I typed in 'lspci -nn', and it seems that two things came up; a Broadcom BCM4401 and an Atheros AR2413. Does the computer have two Wifi cards? Which do I need the driver for, or both? Which brings me to my second question; where do I find and how do I install a driver?
I have recently installed kubuntu 9.04 on my laptop. i then connected an ethernet cable and upgraded it to kubuntu 9.10. but i would like to connect to the internet using wireless. but i do not know how to install the windows wireless driver for my card on this OS. my card is: D-link AirPlus G DWL-g630.
