Ubuntu :: Can't Get Drivers For Wireless Adapter To Install

Feb 24, 2010

I'm booting from disc on a compaq presario F700. Somehow, I messed everything up and now it's not reading that I have an OS. Which was previously vista. Now, when I boot from disc and try to install no partitions come up. I did open the blasted thing to clean it not too long but as far as I know, nothing dislodged. It is a laptop, btw. So, my kneejerk reaction is that the hard-drive got damaged or knocked loose. I also tried using kill-drive to erase it so I could start fresh, also no Hard drive detected. So, I'm going to try that. In the meantime I have another issue. When booting from disc I can't seem to get the drivers for my wireless adapter to install. I have them. Madwifi for AR5001X but I don't know where to put them via terminal.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Install / Access Wireless USB Adapter Drivers

Mar 5, 2011

I really want to drop Windows, but wireless connectivity and frequent crashes are really discouraging me. I have a dual-boot W XP with Ubuntu 10.10. I do not have the computer on, so I'm writing this from my weak memory
USB Adapter - Netgear WNDA3100-100NAS = v2
The adapter works under W XP with no problems
The router, Linksys WRT54G sees the adapter in the dhcp table
lsusb lists the adapter.

I have copied the drivers from the install CD onto the desktop. I cannot figure out how to install or access those drivers for the installation. I tried to install the ndiswrapper from the software center, but the center shows it's available from the "main" source. I've looked in the package manager, but can't find it. When I go into terminal, and enter one of the suggested commands in the forums, it can't be located. I have a Belkin F5D8010 installed on this computer, and it works great under W XP. I want to try to get this installed, but until I can figure out installation of the ndiswrapper and how to access it, and get the drivers recognized, I'm at a standstill.

Ubuntu Networking :: Get Wireless Network Adapter To Be Read By 'Windows Wireless Drivers'

Nov 24, 2010

I recently reformatted and dual partitioned to both Windows 7 as well as ubuntu 10.10. Loading works fine and Windows 7 is 100% operational. I cannot seem to get my wireless network adapter to be read by Ubuntus 'Windows Wireless Drivers' gui. Here are the steps that I have done THUS far, to make sure that we are all on the right path. Before I go any further, my wireless network adapter is an old school WUSB11 Linksys Wireless Network Adapter (running version 2.6).

1) Downloaded and installed "ndiswrapper" from ubuntu's main website. I downloaded the common, utils and ndisgtk files and installed them accordingly.
2) I extracted these three files to the desktop of Ubuntu and accessed the terminal page.
3) From terminal I typed "cd Desktop" to change the directory to the desktop.
4) Next, I typed in "Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-common_1.54-2ubuntu1_all.deb
Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.54-2ubuntu1_i386.deb
Sudo dpkg -i ndisgtk_0.8.5-1_i386.deb"
5) This installed Windows Wireless Drivers gui successfully and I can access it.
6) I have downloaded the driver files for the adapter from the cisco website and searched them for the required files needed.
7) After extracting the .INF file from the "Drivers" directory named "NETUSB.SYS" (I wasn't sure if the other associated files within the same folder needed to be present together with NETUSB so I moved everything to the desktop) I typed in "sudo ndiswrapper -i NETUSB.inf". After accessing the Windows Wireless Drivers gui I have noticed that the 'netusb' driver is present yet under it, the system states "Hardware present: No". This leads me to believe that maybe I installed incorrectly or my "fireware?" is not present? I was reading through the installation guide posted on the ubuntu website that in addition to the .INF file we also need the BIN file(s)? and SYS file(s)?.. The folder with the drivers for my adapter contains a BIN file but it is not within the "Drivers" section of the folder.
9) Upon mousing over the network Icon naturally my hardware is still not present.
10) From what I gather after the system finds the hardware I am to write into the terminal

Ubuntu Installation :: Drivers - 10.04 - Isn't Recognizing My Wireless Adapter

May 2, 2010

I am new to Linux and actually just finished my install about 30 minutes ago. Ubuntu 10.04 isn't recognizing my wireless adapter, so I need to install the drivers. I know where the drivers are, I just don't know how to install them on a Linux system.

Here is the driver page. I don't know how to download the .inf file (necessary?) but I have ndiswrapper, bcmwl5.sys, and sp33008.exe all in the downloads folder.

Apparently just double clicking the files does nothing, so what do I do now?

Ubuntu Networking :: Loading Native Drivers For Realtek Wireless Adapter?

Feb 12, 2011

Just made the jump to Ubuntu, and until this install I considered myself very tech savvy. Now not so much! Built my new desktop, loaded Ubuntu 64 bit no problem. But I'm having a terrible time figuring out how to load the native driver for my realtek wireless adapter. I successfully un-tarred the file, and used the terminal to run the make command by using cd command to navigate to the file. It returned a wall of text, and in my mind looked to work. Next I go to run "./clean" in the same file location in the terminal and it returns:

"ERROR: Module r8192s_usb does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_rsl does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_ccmp does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_tkip does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_wep does not exist in /proc/modules
ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt does not exist in /proc/modules

Not completely sure if this is an issue, I try moving to the next step of instructions issuing the command "insmod 8712u.ko" in the terminal same file location and get the error message
insmod: error inserting '8712u.ko': -1 Operation not permitted
I've tried running "sudo insmod 8712u.ko" from both that file directory, and from my home file directory. My guess is I'm missing a step or need to be typing these commands in a different file directory in the terminal.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Install Linksys WUSB600n Dual-band USB Wireless-N Adapter Onto A Desktop System With 11.1 Installed

Apr 27, 2009

I'm trying to install a Linksys WUSB600n dual-band USB wireless-N adapter onto a desktop system with opensuse 11.1 installed; this system will be migrating to a back porch with no cabling access, hence the wireless solution. Everything works fine under Windows XP, but on Linux, not so much. Hardware info is as follows; there is no "Wireless LAN" entry, but there is a USB entry:

info.subsystem = 'usb_device'
usb_device.vendor = 'Linksys'
usb_device.bus_number = 1 (0x1)
linux.subsystem = 'usb'
usb_device.product = 'Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adapter'
info.product = 'Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adapter'

Ubuntu Networking :: Install The Driver Of Wireless Adapter?

May 3, 2010

I have been struggled with wireless connection. Here is the things... My room doesn't have moduler jack. So basically my landlord is sharing with his wifi. Also, my desktop is using Netgear wireless adapter for internet. My laptop and desktop are windows 7 which can conncet with internet very well. But my Linux Os in my desktop couldn't conncet. Recently I installed ubuntu because my co-worker told me ubuntu can be applied to connect with internet through wireless.

However, how can my ubuntu os get wireless connection without ethernet cable. Actually, my harddisk drive is multiple boot containing windows 7, Ubuntu, and Centos. Windows 7 can connect internet smoothly. But you know, Ubuntu and Centos can't do nothing. So I am stacking this situation not to connect internet through Linux OS right now.

My Netgear USB adapter is WG111US.

Hardware :: Install Wireless-N Adapter On Ubuntu 9.04 (WPA Support)?

Apr 29, 2009

I'm trying hard to get my new usb wireless adapter to work with my ubuntu desktop 9.04.

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic git-core libssl-dev
Next, download the drivers for the tool-chain
cd /usr/src/
sudo git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mcgrof/otus.git

[code].....

my wireless network appear disabled in the network list. There is one network in the list enabled which is using WEP. I think this is because my network is using WPA or WPA2 and that the installed driver needs a suppleant driver to work correctly. I dowloaded the driver package from DLINK [URL] Now when I open the package I see that there is a wpa_supplicant-0.4.8_otus.tar.gz. Untaring it gives me a folder with source code...

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Adapter Not Showing Up Minimal Install

Dec 5, 2010

I have a laptop that I don't use anymore so I figured I would use it for trying to get used to the command line in Linux. The lspci line for my WiFi adapter is:

Quote:
02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)

When I run iwconfig to see if my adapter is getting picked up I only get an output for the loopback interface and my Ethernet port. I installed the following packages which I thought would be enough to get it working:

Quote:
b43-fwcutter, broadcom-sta-common and broadcom-sta-source

I was able to get it working in a regular Ubuntu installation, but it doesn't seem to pick it up in this install. Does anyone have any tips/advice? I went with the minimal install because I wanted to see how lightweight I can get the OS.
