Toshiba Satellite, wireless networks seen but can't connect
- date: May 13, 2011
I'm pretty new to linux and have installed Lubuntu 10.10 on my Girlfriend's ancient Toshiba Satellite Pro SP6000 in an attempt to breathe some life back into it.
The problem I'm having is that I can see the wireless network I want to connect to, but when I select it & enter the key it hangs for about a minute, then asks for the key again. This process loops on & on, until eventually it just gives up & tells me I'm not connected.
iwconfig shows this (not sure how to put it in a separate box as in other threads I have seen, apologies!):
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
irda0 no wireless extensions.

ubuntu xinetd listening for swat, but cant connect
- date: April 8, 2006
so, i am pretty sure that my xinetd is configures correctly to listen for swat...
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/local/samba/sbin/swat
only_from = 127.0.0.1
log_on_failure = USERID
disable = no
it also shows its listening
:/etc/xinetd.d# netstat -tupan | grep 901
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:901 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 787/xinetd
but when i try to connect to the ip (through a router)
i get 'The document contains no data'
has anyone seen this problem before?
thanks in advance
Fedora 18 on Toshiba Satellite, connected to Wifi but no internet
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 28, 2013
I've just installed Fedora 18 (64 bit) on a Fedora Satellite. My wifi adapter (as per lpsci -vnn) is Realtek RTL8188CE.
The system says I am connected to the local Wifi network, but I cannot link to the internet. I've tried every suggestion I've seen so far in these forums:
- Ping <IPaddress> doesn't work
- Ifconfig -a lists my wlan0 as an ethernet device! (with a different MAC address than p2p1, but with no router IP address). I also have a 'lo' device, not sure what that is for. 'lo' and 'wlan' have some activity (0 errors), ethernet none.
Any ideas of what I might try? Thank you, BG
Wireless networks detected, can't connect (Atheros)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 1, 2012
I have an Atheros AR5005G Wireless adapter and a Broadcom 440x 10/100 integrated controller. Currently, my laptop is dualbooted with XP and Lubuntu 12.04, but the following problem persists in ALL Linux versions (works on XP though).
Basically, the wireless networks are being detected, but when I try to connect to them, it never happens. I've already tried using ndiswrapper and the drivers seemed to be installed but nothing changed.
sudo rfkill list
Hard blocked: yes
although after endless terminal commands it was once set to "no".
When I untick "Enable wireless" in the system tray, the item becomes gray (unclickable) and it says something about the hardware switch. I suppose it asks me to press a certain key to enable wireless, but why does it detect wireless networks on startup then?
Back on XP, the program "Power Manager" must be running in the background in order for the hardware wireless key to work. When I press it, a

Can see, but can't connect to, wireless networks

I am having problems with wireless networking on my Thinkpad X61s. It worked fine, but I (stupidly) removed network-manager, and had to re-install it (moved the debs to it using a USB memory stick.)
Now I can use wired networking fine but not wireless. If I click the Network Icon in the top panel I can see a lit of local wireless networks (including my own), but can't connect to any of them; if I click on one, nothing happens. The command nm-tool gives this:

Acer C720 will connect to wireless networks, but won't load web pages from majority
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 31, 2014
I have an Acer C720 Chromebook, running a dual boot of Chrome OS and Ubuntu 14.04.
When using Chrome OS, I can connect to and use private and public wireless networks with no problems. With Ubuntu, I can also connect to all networks, but with the vast majority of networks I have tried, I cannot use the internet; the standard 'Server Not Found' screen appears when trying to load up web pages, for example.
I find it strange that I can use certain networks with no problems, but not others. The only difference I have noticed is that one which worked was WPA protected, while others are WEP (this may be an irrelevant point).
Here is the result of my wireless script.
Thanks in advance!

Cant see wireless networks but interface is up
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 2, 2015
Ok so i am currently running kali linux 2.0 with full disk encryption, on my 2012 macbook pro retina. I am running kali alone no dual boot. So while installing kali i was asked to connect to a network at the time the live usb worked great with the network. After i installed and booted it was hanging and it said a start job is running for LSB raise network interfaces it would wait the full 90 sec then boot. Once booted into the desktop, I went to the menu and selected choose a wireless network.
well nothing shows up. So i used ifconfig and seen that wlan0 was indeed up and iwconfig showed i was connected to my home network. which was not true untill. I enabled a service called smbd and did a wpa_passphrase last but not least i ran dhclient wlan0 and bam i was connected. I still could not see any networks but was connected.
But things just dont seem rite the network is slow and after about an hour i am no longer connected and nothing but a reboot works.
Why can I see wireless networks but never connect, WPA/WEP or open?

I am fairly new to linux, I getting to grips with the offline and I am starting to be converted. The major problem I have is that I cannot get it to connect to my wireless network. I am using Fedora and my wireless card is the Belkin Wireless G Desktop Network Card - F5D7000uk (version 3000uk).
I am able to see the network and pick up the essid automatically through networkmanager or iwlist scan.
I have tried to connect using Network manager;
- it picks up the information and I submit my WEP key and the icon top right shows two green dots with a blue flame(?) rotating between them for a few minutes before asking for my key again.
and using the terminal commands.

but cant find any wireless networks on Linux.
