Ubuntu Servers :: XUbuntu Wireless / "iwconfig" Giving A Third Entry: Wlan0 - Cannot Manually Reboot?

Mar 20, 2011

I have recently converted my old desktop computer into a server (using the ubuntu server 10.10 install disk), installed xubuntu, and have installed the driver for my WPN111 usb antenna using ndiswrapper. I then installed wicd to connect to my home network (with a WPA2 passkey). Anyways, it works great... with one major annoyance � whenever I reboot (with "sudo reboot") the computer, the wireless configuration isn't detected at all.

$ iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions
eth0 no wireless extensions

The only time it works is when I turn my computer off and manually turn back it on... and then "iwconfig" gives me a third entry: wlan0. The wireless then (and only then) works like a charm. The problem is, I want to be able to access this server away from home, and of course in that situation I cannot manually reboot it.

Ubuntu :: Wireless Card Won't Stay Connected - Iwconfig Says Wlan0 Is Interface

Jun 11, 2010

having trouble with my asus 1000 rt2860 wireless n card and WPA/PSK/WPA2 connections. Funky thing is it worked in the 2.26.32-21 kernel (iwconfig shows ra0 as the wireless interface), but when the kernel was updated and pushed through in the ubuntu updates to 2.26.32-22 the wireless card won't stay connected and iwconfig says wlan0 is the interface. I checked the proprietary drivers and they said that the driver for my card was active, but not in use. How do I use the ra0 instead of wlan0?

how do i use the driver that's listed as not being used? I'm having to boot up lucid with the older kernel now, it's annoying, lots of programs aren't running as expected as a result. I've tried manually installing the driver from the RaLink website as detailed in many other posts concerning this wireless card. It seems to work for some people, but not with me.

Slackware :: Starting The Wireless Wlan0 Manually?

Aug 10, 2010

My Slackware64 13.1 system is running off a notebook that does not leave the desk often so I stay connected via a ethernet cable. Recently I set up the wireless configuration for my home network and while I would like to have it so that it automatically goes to the wireless interface when the wired is down, I do not think that is possible without wicd or some other network manager. Anyway, whenever I start up Slackware both the wired and wireless interfaces activate and acquire their own IP addresses. What I would like is for the wireless configuration to remain dormant so that all I would have to do is issue "ifconfig wlan0 up" to turn on the wireless interface/connection. Is this possible? As it stands I have to manually issue the "ifconfig wlan0 down" to turn it off once the system boots up and I log in.

Ubuntu :: Wireless - When Type "iwconfig" In The Terminal - Don't Have The Wlan0 Listed

Mar 22, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a my laptop with a built-in wireless card. I also installed drivers using "ndiswrapper", but I can't make the card work.

When I type "iwconfig" in the Terminal, I don't have the wlan0 listed. In the wireless network drivers, I see the driver I installed and it says: "Hardware present: Yes"

Debian :: Eeepc Wifi - Every Time Scan For Network Using Iwconfig Wlan0 Scan Or Wicd And Computer Completely Freezes

Jan 9, 2011

I installed squeeze on my eeepc 1015ped and downloaded the correct firmware-brcm80211 drivers but every time I scan for my network using iwconfig wlan0 scan or wicd, my computer completely freezes. I previously had a solid install running xmonad, and wicd was working like a charm (using the same broadcom driver) but i tinkered too much with it and decided to do a fresh install. I haven't quite run into a problem like this before.

Ubuntu Networking :: WUSB600N V1 Install On 10.04 - Iwconfig Shows Wlan0 With An ESSID:"" And Nickname: "RT2870STA"

Jan 6, 2011

I've been trying now for 2 days to get my WUSB600N v1 adapter installed on 10.04. I'm a bit of a noob but have been able to follow some posts on here on getting it set up. This is what I've done:

Installed the Ralink RT2870 drivers. Changed the config.mk to enable some parameters. Compiled and installed. Added some entries to blacklist.conf. Updated network/interfaces to include my wpa settings and passphrase. Restarted/rebooted/reinstalled about 100 times!

Here's what happens: iwconfig shows wlan0 with an ESSID:"" and Nickname: "RT2870STA" iwlist wlan0 scan shows my router fine (although does not show Cell 02 which should be the 5GHZ range). So basically it's not connecting to my router. Not sure if I missed any steps. Will gladly provide some extra output if needed. Pulling my hair out over this now ready to throw the adapter in the trash.

Software :: Manually Executing Entry In Nagios Checkcommands.cfg

Mar 10, 2011

First I don't know Nagios. I've been left with a fairly large(350 servers, 750 services) Nagios system installed. I've scraped and googled till I'm blue in the face. The Nagios folks have been less than helpful in that they tell me I need to figure it out myself. I've tried for four days to *figure it out myself*.

I have an entry in the checkcommands.cfg file:

# 'check_dns_external' command definition
define command{
command_name check_dns_external
command_line $USER1$/check_dns -H $HOSTNAME$ -t 60 -s -a $HOSTADDRESS$

First, I don't understand what this command means and does. Next, I don't understand how to manually execute this command. I do know that the command in automatic mode has stopped working as Nagios tries to execute and I get an error message on the Service Status Types: Nagios alert page. The alert doesn't come with any regularity as to time of day or availability of resources. Apparently, this Nagios command is executing randomly. It is waking me up several times a night and several times a day as we page out alerts via email.

I'm lost. Aside from bouncing the entire Nagios stack, which is not possible right away as this is a Production system, is there any way to manually execute the offending line described above? Again, I've asked the Nagios folks and they have declined to answer.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless - Lost It - 'wmaster0 No Wireless Extensions', But Then Refers To Wlan0 As The Wireless Connection

Mar 28, 2010

A friend who switched ISP's gave me his old Linksys WRT54-G wireless router. I went through the installation procedure and had a wireless connection up and running - smiley face. I had security set up for WPA, and decided to upgrade it to WPA2. Another smiley face. When I went to connect (had already done so successfully), I noticed it referred to my wireless as Linksys - I was expecting to see the SSID. So I started playing around in Network Manager and now I have things all effed up.

Don't know exactly what I did, but now I have no wireless. So I ran a few commands (lshw -C network, iwconfig, ifconfig, and iwlist scan), and looking at the results I see what appear to be inconsistencies in the output. I've posted them below, and make the following observations:

1. Under the lshw it refers to my wireless connection logical name as wmaster0, and has the correct MAC address, etc.

2. Under the iwconfig it says, 'wmaster0 no wireless extensions', but then refers to wlan0 as the wireless connection (although it does not seem to be running).

3. Under ifconfig I see both a wlan0 and a wlan0:avahi. The wlan0 has no IP, the wlan0:avahi does, but it is incorrect.

Fedora Installation :: Grub2 Bootloader - Manually Adding Entry?

May 29, 2010

I have a working Ubuntu install with the Grub2 bootloader. I need to manually add an entry to boot Fedora 13 off of sda. Sda1 is the boot partition, sda2 is LVM. None of the examples I've tried work. I do also have F13 grub installed on sda, but chainloading to it didn't do anything other than a blinking cursor.

Ubuntu :: Xubuntu (or GRUB) Loads Only After Reboot?

Nov 12, 2010

Whenever I power on my Xubuntu machine, GRUB does not load until I reboot. Once the system is running, I can reboot back into Xubuntu but if I power down GRUB does not seem to load. I've got the system to power on at 8am every morning but the fact that I have to reboot it is really annoying me.

Reinstalled GRUB to the master boot record of my first hard disk and it solved everything. I had to follow the second part of this guide to get it to work:

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Iwconfig Rate Auto Too Low?

Dec 14, 2010

left to its own devices my wireless connects at too low a speed. I have a 20meg internet connection and my wireless is slowing it down to like 3meg. When I reboot into windows it's fine. When I run iwconfig eth1 rate 11M or even 24M the connection is much faster and runs fine, why won't it automatically go higher? Is this the fault of the driver? I am running Broadcom's driver compiled from source. Also, how can I set it to 24M at boot?

Edit: I guess I can put iwconfig eth1 rate 24M in rc.local, but I'd still like to get auto running higher, especially as my signal should be pretty good. Output from iwconfig white rate=auto:

eth1 IEEE 802.11 ESSID:"honeypot"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.417 GHz Access Point: xxx
Bit Rate=1 Mb/s Tx-Power:24 dBm

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.10: Iwconfig Doesn't Install By Default

Oct 11, 2010

So I installed Ubuntu Server 10.10 64-bit for testing purposes. But when I went to connect it to my wireless network at home, it showed that iwconfig wasn't installed by default like it did in 10.04. Does anyone know how I can either connect my system to the network without using iwconfig, or how I can get iwconfig and install it from a flash drive or some other form of digital media? And I can't do apt-get since I can't get on my network. And I also can't plug in a ethernet cable because my network port is broken.

General :: Iwconfig - Can't Configure Wireless Network

Mar 6, 2011

I've beenhaving some trouble getting my wireless network card working on my Slackware 12 box. Currently it identifies the card and can scan for networks, but I can't seem to join a network. Here's some output:

{8:46:29}gibson:/lib/modules/ iwlist wlan0 scan
wlan0 Scan completed :
Cell 01 - Address: F8:1E:DF:FF:DA:39


It doesn't seem to be accepting the essid setting, and it's giving an error for the key setting. Also, I'm noticing an inconsistency in the wireless protocols. The AP claims that it's 802.11g with rates up to 54 Mb/s. But it should be 802.11n. It's an Apple Airport Extreme and the Radio Mode is set to Automatic and displays "802.11a/n-02.11b/g/n" on the Airport Utility. The interface also claims that it's 802.11g, though shows a rate of 300 Mb/s. It's a Belkin "Play" Wireless USB Adapter (F7D4101).

(Note: I'm using ndiswrapper and the WinXP drivers which were installed from the Belkin software.)

Networking :: Configure Wireless Network - Iwconfig

Feb 6, 2010

I still cannot access to internet. May I know why?

Is it due to the Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A)

The step i did:
1) iwlist eth1 scanning
2) sudo iwconfig eth1 essid shabana key s:xxxxxx
3) invoke firefox ... cannot surf

Do I need to set dhclient? how should I set? DO I need to enable wpa_supplicant?

iwlist eth1 scanning

sound like I was able to connect to ESSID:shabana. Is it true?

The linux is Centos 5.4

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Is Giving BSOD (Black Screen Of Doom)

Nov 3, 2010

i'm running 11.3 kde 4.4, with a Broadcom 4318. since installing 11.3 a few days ago, whenever i'm connected via wireless, one of two things always happen: when trying to play video (hulu, ....., etc.) in firefox, within a minute or so i will get the BSOD--that is, my screen will go black, and my cap/num lock lights will flash on and off. also, when regularly browsing the internet...not long after opening firefox, it will stop working like i have no connection, and then i will get a frozen screen and system within a minute or two after seeing a variation of this communication message:

"Message from syslogd@sbkra at Nov 2 21:09:53 kernel: [956.784417] process irq/11-b43 (pid: 1974, ti=debee000 task=dd291170 task.ti=debee000 Message from syslogd@sbkra at Nov 2 21:09:53 kernel: [956.784424] Stack: Message from syslog@sbkra at Nov 2 21:09:53 kernel: [956.784458] Call Trace: "a couple times, i've gotten this message and the following freeze when running video in firefox.

strangely, i have no problems running streaming audio through smplayer. and i have no problems playing saved video files through smplayer. and i have absolutely no problems whatsoever browsing or playing online video while connected via ethernet.

i've also searched through the various forum sections to try to address the issue, but nothing i've tried has worked. nor has anyone had a problem identical or even similar to this. btw...in relation to "broadcom", yast tells me that i have "b43-firmware" and "b43-fwcutter" installed. nothing else. i do not have "ndiswrapper" installed, because this gave me problems in 11.2, and this problem mentioned here was happening in 11.3 before i uninstalled "ndiswrapper". and the repos i have are: Packman, OSS, Non-OSS, and Update.
