Wireless and Ethernet interfaces disabled in Ubuntu 8.10
- date: October 4, 2009
I just installed Ubuntu 8.10 (64-bit version) on my system (Compaq Presario R4000, AMD Athlon 64) but cannot connect to the Internet.
I am running Windows XP (32-bit version) on my other hard drive partition. My Ethernet connection is based on a Realtek RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ and my WLAN connection on a Broadcom BCM4306 802.11b/g. I used ndiswrapper to install all of the network drivers that came in the driver installation CD for the machine. This did not remedy the problem.
I tried the "sudo lshw -C network" command in the terminal to diagnose the status of my network controllers with the following results:

Broadcom Wireless STA driver (wl) Ubuntu 9.10/10.04

Problem using Broadcom Wireless in Ubuntu 9.10/10.04 because it is not supported by b43 driver ?
Assuming you have tried all normal installation procedures like using the Hardware Drivers tool and you still do not have a working WiFi setup this is what you must do:
1. Download the Broadcom drivers: http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php
2. Unpack and modify the ‘src/wl/sys/wl_linux.c‘:
Line 35 (after #include <linux/etherdevice.h>) add:
#include < linux/sched.h > 3. Compile the code with: make
4. Copy the new driver: sudo mv wl.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
5. Update dependencies: sudo depmod -a
6. Modify the blacklist to include the ‘b43′ and ’ssb’ drivers /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf (Add below the bcm43xx blacklist)
The part above you probably have seen a few times while googling for the answer. But there is a small problem, as you would have noticed, the ‘ssb
Wireless Network Setup with Ubuntu 5.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 11, 2006
My question is very similar to How do I connect wirelessly to my router?, but the specifics are different. I apologize if the answer is the same.
My friend called me a few days ago to help him set up a wireless network connection for his computer. He has one computer, which is running Microsoft Windows XP: Service Pack 2 (but that doesn't matter), downstairs, which is directly connected to a Quest ACTIONTEC DSL modem with a built in wireless router. I configurated the wireless router so that it would work with a wireless connection, but my problem lies in the second computer with the wireless network adapter. The second computer (the one he wants the wireless internet connection on) has a fresh install of Ubuntu 5.10 on it, and there is nothing else on the hard drive.
I do not know the brand or model number of the wireless network adapter, but it looks a lot like a flash thumb drive and connects to a USB port. I am positive that is a wireless network adapter because it says so o
[SOLVED] Unable to get wireless LAN working in Ubuntu 9.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 10, 2009
I installed Ubuntu 9.10 beta over 9.04 yesterday and that meant getting the wireless network to fire up again. The Ubuntu machine is on a LAN and has a fixed address (188.8.131.52).
I installed the driver without difficulty, but the only way I could get a LAN and Internet connection with a fixed IP was to remove DHCP and change etc/network/interfaces as follows:
iface wlan0 inet static
The router is 192.168.0.1.
I then changed (actually added, as it must have disappeared when I removed DHCP) resolv.conf with the following:
where NETGEAR is the SSID of the router (though I'm not sure if this is the domain. The machine name is Ubuntu but it's not a name server).
For some reason, it's not connecting. Checking Network Tools, the static IP is recognised and it has the correct MAC. Ditto,

Wireless connection blocked in Ubuntu 13.10
- date: October 23, 2013
I've just installed Ubuntu 13.10 but I manage to connect only with wired connection; if I click on the menu which should show the available connections I can see only the wired ones, while the wireless connections don't appear; in addition, the option "Enable Wi-Fi" is disabled and blocked (I can't tick it, practically).
Then, I can add that is not an issue of 'manually' blocked hardware, because I've tried more times to push fn+F2 in order to enable the wireless connection, but without results...
Therefore I post here the outputs of some commands which should help the more expert ones to understand where is the problem.

Which is the best wireless network manager for Ubuntu 9.10?

At the moment I'm running Wicd Network Manager and was just wondering if there was a general consensus as to the best wireless network manager out there.
No wireless option shown in Ubuntu 12.10 Network Manager Acer AO756
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 7, 2013
I recently bought an Acer Aspire One 756 and installed Ubuntu 12.10. Things have been working fine and I have no problem using the wired connection at home. However, the network manager does not give me the option to "Enable Wireless" as it did on my previous notebook. There is only the option to "Enable Networking". No wireless connections are shown.
If I enter the "Edit Connections..." dialogue and open the "Wireless" tab, I am given the option to add a wireless connection manually. I don't know if that would work since I don't know about the information I'm prompted to enter.
Please let me know about any commands I can run to gather more information about the problem. Thank you in advance!

This does not happen on the other Windows computers in the house that are also using this same internet/network.
