@marcanuy, this method worked for me on 3.19.0-18-generic, but I had to remove the usage of __DATE__ and __TIME__ macros from rt3290sta-2.6.0.0/src/sta/sta_cfg.c, because the compiler was complaining (gcc version 4.9.2)

If this problem persists in Windows, it is not an Ubuntu problem. It is either a hardware problem, or a problem with your wireless environment, or just low signal strength. Try to get closer to your router. And also changing a channel in your router settings may solve that problem, if there are too many wireless networks using that channel in your ...

You may be able to convert one or more of your existing primary partitions from primary to logical form non-destructively using FixParts (fixparts, part of the gdisk package in Ubuntu) or with some third-party Windows tools (I have no specific programs to recommend, aside from the Windows version of FixParts, but I hear that some Windows tools can do this). ...

I think the simplest solution would be to allow your android to access a directory on your PC. You could make a samba share on Ubuntu by following e.g. this guide and then use ES File explorer or Ghost commander on android.

My favourite application is SSHelper. It is free on google play store and well documented. It creates a SSH server you can access using sftp. You mount the filesystem using Nautilus.

You can not have more than 4 primary partitions if you use MBR partition scheme(3 primary + 1 extended (which can have several 'child' partitions)). Since you say you already have 4 partitions, one of it must be extended (and other 3 will be primary) Suppose if you have C, D, E and F drives, and for eg: F: is your extended partition you can install Ubuntu on ...

Your device is supposed to work with the driver rt2800pci. Let's load it and see if your wireless begins to work: sudo modprobe rt2800pci iwconfig Do you have a wireless interface, ideally wlan0? If so, can you connect? If so, let's add the module to the list of drivers that we wish to load automatically on boot: sudo -i echo rt2800pci >> ...

You need to install wireless driver.

I had a similar problem after installing TLP. I solved it by looking for linux-tools-3.13.0-53 in Synaptic and installing it through Synaptic.

You just might need to update the drivers. Go to Dell's website and find the make and model of video and sound card and try to find a driver either; Find a driver manually online or Install the driver through Ubuntu And, for now, use Ethernet, I guess

Blacklisting ideapad_laptop is not a best solution, because some features like Fn buttons may be disabled too. Here is the bug report I made a patch that fixes this issue.

I finally got the problem. Correct me, if I am wrong. Your built-in bluetooth Atheros adapter works, but when you use headphones, wireless disconnects. Logitech usb dongle does not work at all.

A significant factor is this: seetha:Infra, <MAC 'seetha' [AC1]>, Freq 2462 MHz, Rate 54 Mb/s, Strength 52 WEP Wireless encryption using WEP is not only difficult to connect to, but also quite insecure.

I had the same problem on Lubuntu 14.04 after an upgrade. I tested parts of antiplex answer: killall nm-applet dbus-launch nm-applet seemed to help. So for me it was enough to go to Preferences --> Default applications for LX Session --> Autostart, uncheck Network and add dbus-launch nm-applet

It should work with Ubuntu without additional setup. But kernel driver for this adapter may work unstable.

If /etc/resolv.conf does not exist. You must create one and enter the nameserver line For Example nameserver 8.8.8.8 Where 8.8.8.8 is the Google DNS Server. You need to put in your DNS Server IP Address. Note:- /etc/resolv.conf Should automatically get generated but if it is absent you need to create it. After that it should stay there.

I use wicd-curses, which I find to be the easiest user interface by far. You need to use the → (right arrow key ->) to set configurations; everything else is obvious from the on-screen instructions. Of course you need to find some way of getting on the internet without wicd; I'm assuming you have already solved that or else you wouldn't be posting. ...

I can suggest only one solution. If it does not work, then it is impossible to use this Ralink dongle with Ubuntu. Run in terminal: sudo modprobe rt2800usb nohwcrypt=1 Then unplug and plug in the dongle again. If this helps, then get it permanent. echo "options rt2800usb nohwcrypt=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rt2800usb.conf

First, check the settings in the router. WPA2-AES is preferred; not any WPA and WPA2 mixed mode and certainly not TKIP. Second, if your router is capable of N speeds, you may have better connectivity with a channel width of 20 MHz in the 2.4 GHz band instead of automatic 20/40 MHz, although it is likely to affect N speeds. I also have better luck with a ...

This probably happens because of wireless and bluetooth interference. Wi-Fi and bluetooth share same radio frequency. With some bluetooth chips it is possible to turn on "btcoexist" parameter, which helps to avoid this problem. Your wireless/bluetooth combo chip supports it. You can turn this option on by running sudo modprobe ath9k btcoex_enable=1 To ...

I suspect there is a right way and a wrong way, in my case, I think the solution was pure luck. I deleted the gateway and DNS server information on the wired connection, disabled, and re-enabled both connectios, and viola, now Ubuntu uses the wireless as (default). This alone did not fix the problem. Ubuntu cannot effectively setup it's routing if both ...

Possible, you have configured Mac Filter on you WiFi router.

You dont need to do sudo apt-get update, only the driver installation will do using the command that chilli told about sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source And wifi is activated instantly, no need to reboot. It has helped me a lot on vostro 3446 whenever using live cd of ubuntu.

If you run Ubuntu in Virtualbox, then you do not need to setup wireless connections there. It will use host system connection. Guest system does not directly use network hardware, unless it is a USB dongle, which you passed through to the guest system.

I have had the same issue. The problem is that Lubuntu by default doesn't use his Broadcom Wireless controller because this controller is not a open source software.

Slow internet is solved by this thread on ubuntu forums for me. It basically asks you to first check the connection speed after the following command in terminal as a test- sudo modprobe -r rt2800pci sudo modprobe -v rt2800 pci nohwcrypt=1 If the connection speed improves, you can make it permanent by opening the conf file in gedit using this command - ...

This issue seems only to apply to the Intel® Wireless 3160. This workaround solved my problem and it seems as though it worked for a few others as well. It basically rolls back the driver to the previous version. While it's not the preferable solution, it works until they patch the kernel. For those who are much more technically able than I, here is the ...
