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.
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.
Code: $ 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.
I have just upgraded my system to Fedora 14. One thing I noticed after running some applications on it is that it is not possible anymore to figure out on what frequency a wireless interface is using. If I set a wireless interface to monitor mode and perform the iwconfig or iwlist command, in the past, I could see the frequency used on the interface, but now, this information is not present anymore. My wireless interfaces are in monitor mode.
Has the frequency information been removed from iwconfig or iwlist commands? If it has, is there another way to report this information?
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Dimension 4700 desktop computer. I just upgraded to 10.10 from the previous version after getting my D-Link wireless adapter back after loaning it out. My internet now won't stay connected. I can connect when I firstrn on the computer, with after 2-5 minutes it drops the connection and gives me the "Wireless Network Authentication Required" prompt. It won't connect again without unplugging the adapter and plugging it back in.I borrowed a Belkin wirelss adapter to try it, and it does the exact same thing. PLEASE can someone help me, I really need the internet up on the computer(Also, when I first got the adapter-- while running the old version of Ubuntu-- it would not recognize or connect at all and I spent 4 hours messing with drivers and settings to get it to work, which it did flawlessly. Until I upgraded.)
I am not new to linux, but brand new to wireless. I partined in Win 7, loaded Ubuntu 10.4 and seemingly on boot I am connected wireless as I am in Win 7. However the moment I open Firefox I am no longer on line. Its not important to discussion, but I am not a avid windows fan and at 80 Linux is my hobby having experienced 8-10 distros.So I hope someone out there has the patience to advise me. Thank you so much for reading my tale of woe
When I turn on the computer, it connects to wireless automatically. That's good. But it doesn't stay connected very long. Especially if I turn on a p2p program or make a call through messenger. Then I get disconnected suddenly and if I want to connect again it doesn't work anymore. Network - You are now disconnected and that's it. Every time it happens I restart the system. I use an Acer Aspire 5738z laptop.
The adapter I purchased (Zonet ZEW2508 ) uses the Ralink 2070 chipset - a fact that originally excited me because Ralink seems to be fairly loving to the Linux community. However, despite my best efforts I can't get the thing to work. Initially I tried following directions to set up the driver you can download from the Ralink website. The directions I found were written February first, and Ralink updated the driver February eighth - so as far as I can tell the directions no longer work. After screwing around trying to figure that out for a while I decided to give ndiswrapper a go.
Initially this seemed promising. I just harvested the drivers from the CD and followed one of the many ndiswrapper directions available - most helpful seemed initially to be the Ndiswrapper Troubleshooting Guide found in this forum, however the solutions offered there didn't work either. When I throw an ndiswrapper -l into the terminal it looks promising at first, it tells me the driver is installed and the device is present, but it just doesn't work. When I try iwconfig, or iwlist scan it tells me "no wireless extensions," and "interface doesn't support scanning" respectively. The only devices even listed are lo, eth0, and pan0. There's no wlan0 or anything of the sort.
have a dell Inspiron 1501 with ubuntu 10.0.4 I want to rename my wireless card from eth1 to wlan0 as I use conkyrc and it will not read my wireless strength or my ssid cuz it thinks it's a ethernet card and not wireless card. I know this for a fact because peppermint os my wireless card was wlan0 and it worked just fine.
I have installed SATA driver recently...Even if i can use wifi but i could'nt find any ath0 interface in ifconfig or iwconfig commands....My wifi is taking place through eth1 interface why it happens.....The reason for asking this in order to use aircrack for wep key it says that the injection process only applicable for Athelon interfaces but mine is eth1...I was just trying aircrack-ng...
I have managed to get everything MOST of the way setup...Come to find out though that I cant get conky to function 100% due to my wireless card being named eth3 instead of wlan0...I can get everything to work except for the signal strength, since ubuntu thinks its an ethernet cared. (although it show up as wireless connection in the network interface on the top right of ubuntu control bar). It's not a BIG deal but I was wondering if anyone had a fix or work around for this. BTW it is a Broad 4311 using Broad STA drivers if that makes any difference at all...
I just installed Fedora 13 from the Live CD. FIrst off I read the guide and the first step doesn't even work for me. System>Administration>Network does not exist. If I go to System then Preferences I see a Network Manager but it looks nothing like what these screen shots look like. [url]
No wireless card show up in the wireless tab of Network Manager. How can I fix this since my card is listed in ifconfig and iwconfig. Wifi card is a Zonet zew2500p
Running Ubuntu 10.10 on Hp Mini 1030nr My wireless card is a Broadcom BCM4312. I have the b43 driver installed. When I disable networking I can change to monitor mode but then it changes back to manage mode when I enable networking again. I tried using airmonNG but it;s not working.
the PC just hangs for ever. No mouse movement, ctrl-alt-del, nothing.
I have downloaded a Linux driver from Realtek but it will not compile. I have the latest kernel-devel, headers, and gcc. I can post compiler errors if anybody would like. They're all apparently to do with missing parameters.
I am running a dual-boot with Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows 7 and I can't stay connected to the internet with Ubuntu, but Windows does. My router is a D-Link GamerLounge DGL-4500. I have wireless internet access for about 10 seconds but then it drops. Access to the router doesn't go away though. Other computers can connect to it just fine, and my computer (Toshiba Satellite A505) has connected to every other one I've tried on. I can still log in to it and change settings and all that, but I can't access the internet through it. I also can't ping the router.
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.
I am very new to the wonderful world of Linux and from what I've read about and my limited experience (approx. 3 hrs) I like it; but I'm having one problem that I need to get fixed: I'm dual booting currently with W7 (boo) only because I can't get my internet to stay connected(?) for extended periods of time using F15.
When I first installed F15, everything went smoothly, it asked me for my PW for the wireless internet and it said that it was connected. After I loaded Firefox for the first time, thinking to myself "Awesome, it set itself up completely and is running perfectly) I was let down. On my laptop I have Quickbuttons. Touch sensitive buttons above my F-keys (incase you didn't know what I was referring to. When I connect to the internet, with my wireless card on, I can successfully load 1 internet page. Halfway though the page load, the internet light/button starts to flash repeatedly on/off rapidly. Internet connectivity seems to have stopped at this point as I can not load another internet page or use the chat window any more. If I disconnect from my internet and reconnect, everything works fine for 1 more internet page then back to flashing and no more connectivity.
If I restart using the Windows OS, everything works fine and my desktop is working normally as well, so it must be something with F15. What do I need to do in order to get the internet card to work continuously? What am I missing? Please remember, I'm very new to this and all the troubleshooting web pages that I've found thus far are talking WAY above my head.
I have Ubuntu 10.10 on a Toshiba satellite L300 with an Atheros AR5001 wireless network card. I can get the computer to see the network but it wont persist, it keeps going offline or asking to be re connected.Also Firefox will not find the internet even if the wireless icon shows the wireless network is alive.I can use the laptop for the internet if I plug in the LAN cable but have no luck with the wireless. Security for the modem is using WPA&WPA2 and it will connect according to the icon in the title bar for the wireless network. I have tried the Atheros site for a driver but had no luck finding one. Not even sure if that is what I need to do.
I have a Netgear WG511GE PCMCIA card, and a driver from the original installation disk. I used an ndiswrapper-utils gui called ndisgtk to install the driver. I then do the following to verify an installation:
Unfortunately, when I put the PCMCIA card in, nothing happens. On Windows, a green light flashes even if the card is not connected to any network. At first I thought this might be a hardware issue, so I did #lspci and got:
Lo and behold, when I put a different unbranded Wireless PC Card in it works. I'm no expert in Networks, but to me this suggests a driver problem (i.e. the card is physically detected it just won't work). However, the correct driver was installed with ndisgtk and this was verified with #ndiswrapper -l, hence the confusion.
I'd be grateful if anyone else has had this problem/knows of this problem and is willing to share the solution with me/point me in the right direction. So far, Google has returned a few posts from a few years ago talking about patching kernels and manually building files etc (just before Prism54 became integrated into the Linux kernel).
Situation: Someone intelligent physically dropped a HD from a dying machine into a newer one, things magically went well (with exception of X, fixed) and now we have this NIC problem. The owners of the server refuse to upgrade to fedora 12 unless there is no other choice, so here I am consulting the experts as I promised i would Ty for your help in advance

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.
I love using wheezy but i keep having to take my computer downstairs to hook it up to router through ethernet, i need it to connect through wifi and stay connected.
heres my problem, if i use live image and connect to network its fine but during installation process it gets to the network configuration, it will keep disconnecting at dhcp and if i try and continue it gives me the error packages broken due to it not staying connected.
MY WIFI CARD IS A TP-LINK WDN 4800
if i try and just do a net install then it doesnt show my wifi network.
it uses in both cases ar93xx atheros driver for installing, i just need to know how i can try and keep a stable connection over wifi so it can install over wifi so i dont have to keep taking pc downstairs to install it.
i done something that stopped me being able to login into wheezy i was left at black screen with blinking command line, i have reverted to mint debian until i can get a stable connection over wifi to install wheezy again.
I can connect to the wireless at my school, but the connection drops frequently and regularly. Network Manager still shows bars indicating the network strength and shows that it's connected to the network in the dropdown. Selecting the network again causes it to indicate that it disconnects and reconnects. At this point I have wireless until the connection drops again. Possibly relevant details: This is the Purdue PAL2.0 network, which can be tricky to connect to, particularly for Linux users. It's a hidden network using WPA2 and PEAP. My computer is a Dell Inspiron 1420n laptop, circa August 2007.
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.
I try to set-up an Access point using ubuntu 11.04. I am using the minimal configuration file from [URL] together with a TP-Link TL-WN422G (Atheros chipset). I've installed the linux-backports-net-natty-generic drivers. But when trying to start hostapd I always get this output:
Code: # hostapd -dd -K test.conf Configuration file: test.conf Failed to set interface wlan0 to master mode. nl80211 driver initialization failed. wlan0: Unable to setup interface. ELOOP: remaining socket: sock=5 eloop_data=0x9b9440 user_data=(nil) handler=0x43d980 I have also disabled the network-manager for this device by adding this to /etc/network/interfaces:
