Ubuntu Networking :: Wlan Won't Work In Studio 9.10 But Works In 9.10?
Jan 16, 2010
my network was a dream to set up under ubuntu 9.10. all i had to do was enter pass key, then that was it. Works brilliantly.
Different matter with studio. The thing I notice in network connections is, it doesn't want to retain my pass phrase, if I go back into properties the phrase is blank. As far as I can tell the wireless card has been reconcognized and is communicating with router.
My system is: asus p5ql-vm epu, intel core2 duo 2.8 e7400, 4gb 1067 ddr2 ram, belkin f5d7050 v4000, edimax router.
Here is the info requested in the sticky:

anybody out there with an idea for a command to make the WLAN-Printer (HP-Officejet)work again when it stops after 30 Min - 2 h.Simple stopping the print job and print again does not help. The only way for me is to stop the print job and RESTART. Then it works again 30 Min- 2 h. I use updatet lucid lynx 32.
And I need a command like "killall pulseaudio" that I need when I return from logged-on as the second user to get sound again.
I have a Dell Laptop which worked very well also with the wireless card. In fact the wireless card was never an issue and worked straight out of the box. However it has lost the ability to detect the wireless networks. I have plenty of networks in my area and my little netbook shows them nicely. So did my Dell laptop in the past. But now the Dell laptop shows no scan results at all although the card seems to be up and running (see terminal output below) I have to add that I had to compile a module for the WIRED network card which works excellent I always use and used a wired network and cannot say when the wireless card stopped to work PLUS I had a faulty harddisk which was replaced by Dell recently so there could be also a hardware fault since then because the laptop was opened by the service people. And yes the wireless is switched on in the BIOS If I create a wireless network with the laptop the netbook can see it, so the wireless card is broadcasting
I recently installed Ubuntu x64 on my dell studio 1535 using the windows installer (wubi).
All seems to be working fine apart from the built in wireless card, the proprietary driver (found in hardware drivers) installs and activates successfully and works perfectly. Until I shut down or restart the system. On the next boot the wireless card is 'disabled' and no longer works.
The card I have is a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g
I am going to try a proper install on a second partition rather than using wubi later on but wondered if this was a commonly occuring problem?
The wireless card works as soon as the driver installs, however I am shown a "restart to activate driver" message and after restarting it's dead.
I'm a total NOOB and I just finished a dual boot Ubunutu Studio 9.10 64bit/Windows 7 x64 install on a brand new i7 PC using a WD10EARS hard drive (with the new Advanced Format) and I gave myself top marks for getting by the mammoth amount of obstacles to accomplish what I have so far.
Item of note: you can NOT do a complete install with Ubuntu Studio 9.10 using a wireless device. The installer ONLY recognizes motherboard ethernet ports. No worries, I moved it to the office and the LAN line and got a complete install. I am using this in my living room though as a Media PC with MythTV and the distance requires me to use WIRELESS.
After a successful install, I was unable to get my brand new, out of box Netgear WG111v3 to establish a successful connection and I need your help. Pardon the length of this post, I will try to organize it as best as I can but I have done a LOT of troubleshooting before posting here. Here's what I did so far:
1. Tested Wireless in Win7 on same PC. Works GREAT! Rebooted, went into Ubuntu Studio 9.10 and got no joy. 2. This page says the WG111v3 works out of box with Karmic and I can state with 100% certainty it does NOT. 3. Went to this page (which is THE best how to out there) and followed instructions. I discovered a bug in wpa_passphrase immediately. I use a very complex passphrase using !#$&@ characters in the mix. wpa_passphrase dies with various errors when it sees these characters because it thinks they're command items rather than part of the text in my key. Try it yourself. Create any long text string with those characters and input it to wpa_passphrase. It dies. Works fine with regular letters/numbers. I had to use this page to get the HEX value for my passphrase so I could complete my interfaces file. On a hunch, I changed my passphrase on the router to be a simple 10 letter word all in lower case. wpa_passphrase changed that to HEX fine, updated interfaces file, rebooted router and PC and got nothing. So it's NOT the passphrase. 4. Went to this page, which again states it works out of box but doesn't and tried all the help there. NO JOY. 5. Tried here too. The help there is good when combined with #2 above but still nothing. 6. Went to unsupported versions of Ubuntu to try some old school tricks. Got nothing. 7. Found this site and it has EXACTLY my problem! I always end up with "No working leases in persistent database - sleeping." when it tries to get an IP address from the router. As you can see, that user found no fix either. 8. I turned off ALL security on the router and left it wide open, updated my interfaces file appropriately, rebooted everything and it still couldn't connect?
I am having trouble getting my wireless internet working on Ubuntu 9.10 on a Dell Studio 1535 laptop. My wireless card works just fine in an earlier version (8.10) of Ubuntu. In fact, it worked right out of the box on Intrepid. However, in 9.10, I can not get it to work. I have installed Wicd Network Manager in it, and it shows no networks visible, even though if I reboot and go into my 8.10 version (I have a multiboot), opening Wicd will immediately show several wireless networks within range. So I'm thinking that the 9.10 version is missing a driver for my wireless card, which 8.10 has.
On my HP TX2500 laptop, dual-booting Vista and 9.04, Ubuntu installation found the WLAN and it works fine.I installed VirtualBox with Vista as the host and 9.04 as the guest. Wired Ethernet works fine but it didn't seem to find my WLAN. What more do I need to do?
I just installed 9.10 on a brand new Dell Vostro 1520. The WLAN card does NOT work out of the box.
Here is what you have to do. After install and rebooting insert the live CD Go to software sources (system > software sources)and check the "officially supported restricted copyright" box You are then asked to update the available software list, do so. You will receive an error message since you are not (yet) connected to the internet and all the other repositories are not available.
Now you should be notified that restricted drivers are available, if not you can go to system > hardware. Anyway, now you should be able to activate the Broadcom STA driver. After rebooting you can connect to available wireless networks.
Alternative (in case you are not asked, which happened to me on another Vostro system) system>administration>syaptic package manager Search for broadcom Mark b43-fwcutter and bcmwl-kernel-sources for installation Reboot (who said there is no rebooting required in linux) The adapter should be up and running ...
Why doesn't encrypted WLAN communication work for me? I've got an HP Probook 6555b with Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit. When I set my WLAN router to unencrypted I'm able to connect. But if I choose WPA-PSK-TKIP or WPA2-AES or WPA-PSK & WPA2-PSK I can't connect. Ubuntu prompts me to enter my encryption key. I enter it. It runs for a while and then prompts me again. The little icon at the top right of the screen next to the speaker symbol is where I can see it trying to connect.
I have installed Fedora 12 on my laptop.Installing my Broadcom BCM 4312 wireless drivers works just fine, but after a reboot I have to reinstall them. modprobe wl, modprobe wlan0 etc doesn't work either. I need to reinstall them every time I reboot.
I have a Dell WLAN 1397 Half Minicard, 802.11 b/g card in my laptop, and I can't seem to get ubuntu to work with it. I tried this method:
1. Synaptic Pack Manager 2. Check "Install from Boot Disc" 3. Reload 4. Install and apply bcmwl-kernel-source 5. Reboot
This didn't work for me, so I tried entering sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source and that also didn't work. Another thing I tried is formatting my Ubuntu partition and reinstalling, and retrying both of those methods. The ethernet port does work, however.
While it worked out of the box in 11.3, openSUSE 11.4 does not recognize my TP-Link TL-WN821N any more.
Googling a bit, apparently the old ar9170 driver is deprecated and supposedly a new driver carl9170 is integrated in the kernel now, but since it is not working this cannot be quite right.
Unfortunately, I do not understand much of the instructions given at the above two URLs: Should I try to install the old ar9170 driver? If so, I found older, pre-11.4 posts here that seem to indicate that is not so simple as just copying a firmware file somewhere, so how can I install it in openSUSE 11.4? Or should I rather try getting the new carl9170 to work? If so, how can I do this if it is already supposed to be part of the kernel?
The 11.3 Net-Install (from CD) recognised that USB-WLAN-Stick all by itself, installing 11.3 just fine through the air. With 11.4 it didn't work. So I borrowed a WLAN bridge for a couple of days and installed 11.4 now (32bit plain install plus Packman), but even after the install, plugging in that Stick does not do anything.
I have recently bought a new laptop for this purpose. It is a Toshiba L555D-103. It was pre installed with Windows 7 (64 bit). I have now installed Ubuntu 9.10 (32 bit). It works perfectly when wired. But it does not when I try it wireless. It did work wirelessly with Windows 7, and I have many more both stationary and laptops working through the router, so I do not think the router is the problem.I am guessing that there are no drivers for the wireless to function, but I am not sure. I am guessing that there are no drivers for the Ethernet card ?
I've recently installed KDE 4.4.1 just to try on a Dell 1545 laptop with Ubuntu 9.10 previously installed.
My problem is that the wireless connection works just perfectly with nm-applet under Gnome, but when I login on KDE and ask KNetworkManager to connect to the same network as before, it can't finish the connection.
When I choose the connection the program asks for my passphrase, I type it and then it just sticks on "activating network" and nothing happens.
My experience with KDE is zero, so I don't even know where to start looking. I'd even tried to kill KNetworkManager and try to replace it with nm-applet, but I think there's a daemon that restarts it immediately.
Per the HowTo post a Wireless Issue Sticky, I have included the information in the 10 steps below.Here is the description of my problem: I am getting back into Linux after purchasing a new PC (have not owned one personally for several months). I purchased an HP, as I've had personal success with them. It is an HP Pavilion g4 Notebook.When I booted the Live CD, I was pleased that wireless just worked.However, after installing, wireless does not work.The Additional Drivers Tool appears to recognize my wireless card;however, when I attempt to active the driver, I receive an "installation failed" dialog.ere are two screenshots:And here are the results of the file from the second screenshot:
As of now, my internet works fine when connected with an ethernet cable.The problem is it doesnt seem like my wireless is working at all.The led light is orange, (its usually blue when it connects) and I cannot see my home dsl network.Is thereany specific troubleshooting steps I should take?HP dv6000 laptopwireless card: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN
Yes, another newbie question. Just loaded and updated FC 10. Everything works great with dhcp. Tried to setup static ip to learn more about how to set it up and nothing seems to work. I'm connected to DSL via a router when I ifconfig I get:(basic stuff)inet addr: 192.168.1.7 Bcast: 192.168.1.255 Mask: 255.255.255.0 UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
I have also tried default gateway 192.168.1.255 and 192.168.1.254.Most of what I have tried above has come from linux websites and faq's.Keeping in mind I am worst than any new newbie you have ever worked with
I have a Proliant DL 120 G5 with CentOS 5.4 and I have installed a Brodcom Corporation Netxtrem BCM 5722 Gigabit Ethernet PCI. So I have two interfaces: eth0 broadcom eth1 Intel The eth1 works, instead eth0 don't work. I can ping itself and 127.0.0.1 but I can't ping the gateway. The results of netstat -nr is:
When I shutdown computer and start it up, eth0 doesn't seem to show up (though lspci sees ethernet card and modules are loaded). When i reboot (which is exactly the same, in my opinion), it works good. I'm using Sabayon GNU/Linux, Gnome Network Manager applet.
I'm currently using Ubuntu Studio Lucid and would like to use Ubuntu Studio Maverick, but I'm unsure how to go about the upgrade. Should I upgrade to generic ubuntu maverick then upgrade to ubuntu studio? Or install ubuntu studio maverick from a DVD?? Or something else?? I should say that I have a separate /home partition.
[Edited because what I first wrote was confusing:] when I started the process of upgrading with Update Manager it said that quite a lot of things would be removed (it would be upgrading only to generic Ubuntu for one thing)---I aborted that by the way. I was wondering if anybody knew of a way to avoid having to first sort of note everything that I have installed, then do the upgrade to generic Ubuntu, then do an upgrade to Ubuntu Studio, then reinstall all of the apps in their newer versions. Might there be a way to upgrade the OS itself first and then just directly update the apps without having to reinstall them, figuring out what to install all over again too?
I have a Dell Studio 1535 and can't seem to get recording from the mic jack to work. I was wondering if anyone has got it to work or not on Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit. I fiddled with the settings in System->Preferences->Sound and in Volume Control: HDA Intel (Alsa mixer), as well as the settings in the semi-CLI program alsamixer, but it doesn't matter what I do. I have failed to get it to record from the mic jack. It will only record from my internal mics, and I don't want that at all.
I'm trying to set up some scripts from one machine that I can use to remotely lock all of my workstations remotely. I have a virtual ubuntu machine ported out to the internet w/ ssh open and I'm using ServerAssistant on my droidX phone to kick off the scripts. I have all of my ssh keys shared between the boxes so I don't have to log on. Everything works beautifully for one machine, a regular Ubuntu 10.10 box with a single video card with 2 monitors. This is the script contents:
Code: ssh -X brainstem@zappa "export DISPLAY=:0; gnome-screensaver; gnome-screensaver-command -l" But my other desktop, a triple monitor ubuntu studio 10.04 box (2 vid cards) will not kick off with the same syntax as above (obviously different computer name). If I execute the command manually from the remote machine, it doesn't work either. Just to make sure, I ran "gnome-screensaver-command -l" locally on this box just to make sure that part works - it locks the machine locally just fine. I just can't seem to get it to work from another machine. I've tried from 2 different boxes and have the same results. I can do anything else I want over ssh and it all works.
I installed openSUSE 11.3 on my notebook (lenovo 510i, Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000).When I connect to my home wlan with WPA2 there is no problem, but when I try to connect to an open WLAN without encryption, the essid is not set (seen with iwconfig wlan0). If I set it after rcnetwork start wlan0 with iwconfig wlan0 essid the_open_sid, it associates and dhcp is working fine.
Here are the messages that are produced during rcnetwork start wlan0:
