You said: sudo cp b43_updated.zip /lib/firmware/b43 and then sudo modprobe -rv b43 and sudo modprobe -v b43 I believe you need to unzip the file first. Please try: cd ~/Desktop unzip b43_updated.zip It extracts into its own folder b43. Continue: sudo cp b43/* /lib/firmware/b43 sudo modprobe -r b43 && sudo modprobe b43 It may take a ...

Adding to the answer by Alan. It might be a bit late, but after struggling with this for a while I might as well write it down here. The solution by Alan works fine, but after sleep/resume my wlan power management was always turned on again. Hooks in /etc/pm/ are not working. So additionally to modifying rc.local I did the following, which now seems to ...

I recently purchased an MSI WS60 with this Wi-Fiac chipset in it: Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros Killer N1525 Wireless-AC (rev 20) I tried to clone this repository: https://github.com/kvalo/ath I used commit 4b9abafdc3316a7e386a4fb67197a6ba7b28ce18 and compiled a custom kernel and used the firmware files from another one of kvalo's git repos. ...

Seems like backports might be the easiest way to fix this sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic wget https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/backports/2015/03/13/backports-20150313.tar.xz tar xvfJ backports-20150313.tar.xz cd backports-20150313 make defconfig-iwlwifi make sudo make install Reboot

Just Beam It is a P2P file transferring service. Imagine it is like uploading your file to Google Drive (or equivalent), but it is instead uploading to your second computer. It wasn't fast for me, but I have very slow internet. It may work well for you!

You can make your own customized Ubuntu in that you can pre install the software you need. . So that you don't have to install packages every time in usb stick... also you can add startup script so that every time wifi will turn on automatically Google for custom Ubuntu Hope it works EDITED As I understand your question, your requirement is:- You have ...

As suggested in the duplicate, you can simply use: sudo apt-get install wondershaper In terminal find out what is the name of the interface connected to your internet by using ifconfig. Could be eth0, wlan0, etc... In my case is wlan0. So i would do this: sudo wondershaper wlan0 1024 256 This will give me a download speed of 1024 Kbits and 256 Kbits ...

I am having the same issue, and my /etc/hosts is pretty simple. I changed it to something else, but it didn't work also: 127.0.0.1 hostname or 127.0.0.1 localhost

The software you need to get the wifi going is included, just go to Software and Updates/Additional Drivers Then select the Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA and Apply Changes Do you mean just no operating system, or no internal hard drive?

I would recommend installing a newer kernel although it should be working since correctly since 2.6.30 or a version like that. I'm using it as an AP in kernel 3.13.0-24-generic, even though i know it is better to install a new kernel. I was using it on http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.18.12-vivid/ or a similar one (till my HDD crashed). I can ...

I have the same computer. You have to edit /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf (or create it) sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf and add this line: options ath9k nohwcrypt=1 Then reboot your computer.

This looks simple enough. Looking at: https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi Download driver, copy to correct location, etc. -- That said, it should already work in 15.04 ..

My understanding is that ESSID is the name of the access point, which can be changed, but BSSID is numeric ID of the access point ( something like MAC address of the router). For instance, on my college campus we have many different access points with same name, but BSSIDs are different for each router. You can list networks with their respective ESSID and ...

In the meantime i created a ppa where one can easily install my version of the bcmwl package on Ubuntu 14.04, 14.10 and 15.04. sudo apt-add-repository ppa:longsleep/bcmwl sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source So if you do not want to compile it yourself, grab it from there. Check the ppa repository yourself at: ...

You may can reinstall/install older ubuntu (if you have no personal data or something like this) or look for internet card drivers (Dash->Settings->Addiotinal Drivers) and install wirless/internet card driver that's may can fix it.

I think what you want is 'ad-hoc'. You can create an ad-hoc network on one device, and connect to this network from the other device. I am assuming both devices have Ubuntu installed; you can follow this steps: Click the network connections indicator in the upper right corner at your screen: Choose Edit Connections... and click the Add button at the ...

I have been having similar issues (same wireless card). Here is what I did to fix it: sudo service network-manager stop sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf Add "options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1" to file (no quotes), save, and close. Then: sudo rmmod iwlmvm iwlwifi sudo modprobe iwlmvm iwlwifi sudo service network-manager restart This will ...

We had the problem of wifi not working in Acer Aspire e5 new laptop after installing ubuntu 14.

Your device is relatively new and the driver has, up to now, been tricky to impossible to get working properly. However, a new and improved driver has appeared! I have compiled it successfully but I don't have the device, so I can test no further. Please get a temporary internet connection by ethernet or tethering or whatever means possible. Open a ...

The use of make is not right here. longsleep just revised the README: Guys this repository is ubuntu packaging. So you should build the package and install it. It then builds the module with the kernel patches required for your particular kernel version. I See that the readme needs some work :-) This should work: First you need this package: ...

It might just be a typo if you copied by hand but the line in /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf should be dns=dnsmasq not dns=dnqsmasq that you have reported. Your /etc/resolv.conf file is missing a nameserver line echo "nameserver 127.0.1.1" | sudo tee -a /etc/resolv.conf Then reboot

I had a similar problem with the v2 of this dongle: Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bda:8179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. I had very low signal, hardly possible connect and 1000+ of ping on the local network on Ubuntu 14.04 running on Samsung ATIV 9, 2015 NP930X2K, (the wifi embedded card is not yet supported so I plugged this small TP-LINK wifi dongle).

The proper support in the ath10k driver should have just been added with the Linux kernel 4.0 (ex 3.20). I still have not tested it but this seems pretty clear according to: News: 2015-01-27 QCA6174 support added, will be in 3.20. here: https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/ath10k Note that the QCA6174 is the chip mounted in the ...

If you have internet access through wired ethernet, run these commands: $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer If you don't have internet access, then download the following on another computer and copy it to your E6400 in the home folder (/home/your_username/): b43-fwcutter 32-bit package or 64-bit package depending on ...

open terminal and type what is shown below sudo apt-get purge broadcom-sta-common broadcom-sta-source bcmwl-kernel-source then type sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer Restart your computer after the command is completed and your wireless will start to work :D

There is probably a way to limit the speed at which your wifi connects. This question was already answered. Perhaps wondershaper will do what you need. It will limit upload and download speeds independently. Quoting from the article: sudo apt-get install wondershaper Now issue a command similar to following (replacing eth0 with your interface name): ...

No, not at all. Firmware is what's on the device, so it has nothing to do with our OS nor the computer at all. It's like, your mp3 player or your modem has it's own firmware, but it works with ANY OS with proper drivers installed. Hope this helps.

Same problem but I added iwconfig wlan1 power off in /etc/rc.local on the line prior to exit 0 which has a similar action. This failed until I added sleep 10 in the previous line to allow things to settle down in the wifi adaptor before issuing the power management command. sleep 10 iwconfig wlan1 power off exit 0 Now all working as it should.

This Yoga2 problem has been fixed in kernel 3.16. If you installed Ubuntu 14.04, then run sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-utopic Permanent blacklist of ideapad_laptop is not a good solution. If you did it already, run remove "blacklist ideapad-laptop" from /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf


0

If your wireless works after removing ideapad-laptop, let's blacklist it so it doesn't load in the future. Please open a terminal and do: sudo -i echo "blacklist ideapad-laptop" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf exit You should be all set.

I'm running Ubuntu 14.10 on my X205TA. Right now the major gripe for me is that audio doesn't work. I would recommend that you do get the laptop if you're okay with using Windows for a while. It is a really good laptop for the price. I followed instructions from the following pages ...

In addition to Rozza's answer you can group the results and see how much each channel is used: sudo iwlist wlan0 scan | grep Frequency | sort | uniq -c | sort -n Example output would be like this: 1 Frequency:2.422 GHz (Channel 3) 1 Frequency:2.432 GHz (Channel 5) 1 Frequency:5.26 GHz ...

It seems I found a solution to the problem, using echo "options rtl8723be fwlps=0 swlps=0" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf More on this on this forum post. Wifi has been working for a couple hours now with no problems.

Which kernel you are using (uname -a)? I had the same problem after updating from 3.19 to 4.0 because the bcmwl-kernel-source package isn't working with 4.0 at the moment. If this is your problem, you can find more information about it (and the patch) here. Edit: If someone is looking for the patch and how to apply it: longsleep (the author) updated the ...

(Taken from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2273501&page=2) It finally works! I found what I think could had be the reason of my troubles.

Apparently after uninstalling ...

It seems from the output of the wireless debugging script that your WiFi is sharing channel 11 with 6 other WiFi networks close to you. Please go to your router and change the Channel to 2 (currently unused by any of the WiFi networks around you). That will improve your throughput.
