Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 on 3 HP Probook 4540s's, and none of them seems to be able to connect to wireless networks.

I have 1 Probook 4540s with Windows 7 installed and I can access wlan from it. I tried installing the necessary drivers from HP's website, but it still doesn't seem to be working.

I've seen other people with different Probooks having similar problems, but their computers seem to be able to detect and even attempt to connect wlans, while mine doesn't even acknowledge that it has wireless. Any help would be appreciated.

I had EXACT same problem. let me help you out! –  denNorske Dec 4 '12 at 9:38
    
    
Do you know which wireless card you have installed? If not run lspci in a terminal and paste the output. –  Ross Fleming Dec 4 '12 at 10:07

Please provide the output of lspci -nnk | grep -EA3 Ralink. We'll need more information on your wireless device and this will provide numeric device identifiers. –  gertvdijk Jan 21 '13 at 11:41

Please, download this, and put it into your "Downloads" folder in ubuntu:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/19624249/Driver.tar

That is the driver for your network card, and i am now going to show you how to install it. This file was downloaded from a bigger package on the internet. Download on own risk.

Extract all the files in the archive into a folder named "Driver" in your "Downloads".

Now, open a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T, and type:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential dkms

cd Downloads/Driver

Now, to install it:

sudo make && sudo make install && sudo make clean

Then, when it finish:

Blacklist the built-in driver, and load the new one with:

echo "blacklist rt2800pci" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-rt2800pci.conf

sudo modprobe -rfv rt2800pci

sudo modprobe -v rt3259sta

And reboot, and it should work!

After sudo modprobe -v rt3259sta I get the following error: FATAL: Module rt3259sta not found. I also get some stderr output from sudo make, which I added to the main text. –  Oguzhan Dec 7 '12 at 6:48

-1 For posting a link to an untrusted source (user's Dropbox) of code to install on your machine. –  gertvdijk Jan 21 '13 at 11:42
    
Untrusted or not, i never said he had too. Go on and find that file yourself. I could have uploaded it to mediafire, and it would have been the same. Unnecessary vote in my opinion. –  denNorske Mar 5 '13 at 11:08
