You can install another driver. You need to be connected to internet by wire. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/rtlwifi sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install rtlwifi-new-dkms linux-firmware and reboot.

I reset my /etc/network/interfaces file to the 14.04 default. I had tinkered with it in the past and its likely that something I either added or removed was causing my problem.

It appears there was a conflict with /etc/network/interfaces and the nm-applet (gui network manager). So I opened /etc/network/interfaces and commented out everything but the following: # interfaces(5) file used by ifup(5) and ifdown(5) auto lo iface lo inet loopback After doing that I opened /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf file and changed ...

Here are some possible options and alternatives I can suggest: Download the driver on Windows machine, save on USB, transfer to Ubuntu, install that driver with sudo dpkg -i package-file. Boot that Windows machine with an Ubuntu Live CD or USB that you used for installing Ubuntu (hopefully you still have it) and use that live desktop in as wifi to ...

As a matter of fact, I had this problem 20 minutes ago. What I did to fix it may not work for you, but it did work for me. 1: turn off hardware switch, 2: turn on hardware switch, 3: put the laptop in sleep mode, 4: press any key on the keyboard to wake up the laptop from sleep mode, 5: select the option in the Wireless drop-down menu "Connect to Hidden ...

Had the same problem. Fortunately I planned to dual boot (just in case) for a while. When I boot into Windows and do fn+PrtScr (wifi button), the wifi turns on, then works in Linux too. Not sure why, but the hardware button on the keyboard doesn't seem to work.

Thanks for help everyone, but now I have already found the solution on Youtube. I used in terminal this command:"kde5-nm-connection-editor" and opened KDE connection editor and so I managed to create new Wi-Fi hotspot and it works very well.

Problem is with default route. Nice place for this kind of action is in /etc/network/if-down.d/ or /etc/network/if-up.d/ to make default route to eth0 interface every time when go up, make script called script with execute permissions 755 sudo nano /etc/network/if-up.d/script # Check for specific interface if desired [ "$IFACE" != "eth0" ] || exit 0 # Do ...

I have this old script that helped me to make a WiFi-Hotspot from my ethernet connection. It might not work but its worth a try.

I've had a similar problem on my Lenovo Y50 (rtl8723be), where wifi would disconnect with random intervals (between 5-10 minutes) I found this thread that matched my problems: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2262957 where user Pilot6 suggests to update drivers from this repository https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new and it looks like it has ...

Here's what you do. (Keep your WiFi enabled during the following process) Mount the Ubuntu installation ISO image or the CD which you used for this installation. Browse the CD for pool/main/d/dkms/dkms-x.x.x.x-x_ubuntu.deb. (this is basically used to add modules/drivers to the kernel dynamically). Double click and install it. Now go to ...

Fuck if I know. There are lots. man ssh lists some (~/.ssh/config comes to mind). Others can be discovered using e.g. dpkg -L network-manager-vpnc, which lists all the files installed by that package. You'll have to figure out which ones are config files. Try https://dnsleaktest.com/. I think it's mainly aimed at people trying to steal movies safely, but I ...

It turned out it was a Power Management thing but all of the commands I tried and were posted in the links above didn't permanently set power management to off. So I followed these steps and it worked: http://askubuntu.com/a/129634/433874

I just had to push the wireless switch on the side of my laptop some how I accidentally had turned it off. But now its working, gotta watch out for that small mistake. Costs me 2 hours of searching.

There is no package hostpad, thats right. The package name is hostapd, a user space IEEE 802.11 AP and IEEE 802.1X/WPA/WPA2/EAP Authenticator. Therefore sudo apt-get install hostapd The package is in the universe repositories. Check your configuration via Software & Updates. Select the right entry and select Main server.

Depending on how much ram you have 2 or 4 than Ubuntu can work on 25 gigs. The total install is only around 5 gigs with needed programs. The default Ubuntu desktop environment Unity is great for touch screens but it may be a little slow; probably not. If it is slow try kde on Ubuntu or Chromixium. Keep in mind I use Ubuntu gnome as my daily driver so I may ...

According to the system requirements, you should be fine with Ubuntu. The older Netbook releases they had have been rolled over into the Unity desktop that is part of the Ubuntu Desktop version. Minimum hard disk space is 5GB, so your specifications you should be fine. The link below has more information. One way to know for sure would be to boot your ...

For everything that you have described, yes, Ubuntu will work on your laptop. 25 GB of RAM will definitely be the problem. That will allow you to use the internet (On-board internet should work very well!), use Skype (Which is 100% compatible with Ubuntu), and download small files, but you may want to consider upgrading RAM. 25 GB isn't good, and won't run ...

It may just be an internal error. sudo apt-get purge network-manager sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install network-manager Do that then reboot.

First, I suggest you remove the incorrect ndiswrapper driver: sudo ndiswrapper -e rt2860 Next, with a temporary internet connection, by ethernet or whatever neans possible, do: sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic git cd ~ git clone https://github.com/mareksuscak/asus-pce-n53-linux.git cd asus-pce-n53-linux sudo make sudo make ...

I'm not sure what the cause is, but leaving it plugged in to the internet and letting it install all of its automatic updates, then coming back to it the next day and trying to first install b43-fwcutter and then firmware-b43-installer worked. No clue why. But it did.

New solution ! Use new Linux kernel 4.1 ! Getting much effective for my X200MA ! http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.1-rc1-vivid/ It seems that New kernel updates for BayTrails' suspend process, so Wifi driver and other functions are well activating after resume from suspend, I thought.

Hi again and thanks for the feedback, So here is what I did: BIOS update: done with the release of June 12th 2015. The version previously installed was about one year old. Router settings: I had selected WPA (TKIP+AES) because it is stated in my router interface that this is the prefered mode (does not say why though). My other choices are: WEP (but I ...

There is no clear answer for that. Pro keep it: You will not lose ("It's somewhere over here!!11!") it or your USB-ports will not worn out (very unlikely, but still). Pro removing it: You will not accidently crash into it and maybe break your USB port. In general there is not clear advice from software point of view as with booting your USB-ports are ...

Well, I ask at ubuntu forums and they answer very fast and it's work. Click on Network Manager> Click 'Edit' Edit the wireless connection> Click the IPv6 tab> Set IPv6 to ignore> click OK> Reboot.

ap-hotspot is pretty outdated as the developer has stopped working on it for quite some time now. I suggest using create_ap as an alternative. To install, type the following in terminal. git clone https://github.com/oblique/create_ap cd create_ap make install Complete details on installation and use is found here.

I don't think the PPA currently has a version of ap-hotspot available for 15.04, however you should be able to install it by downloading the deb file from here for another Ubuntu version (the below instructions use 14.10's) and installing it: wget "https://launchpad.net/~nilarimogard/+archive/ubuntu/webupd8/+files/ap-hotspot_0.3-1%7Ewebupd8%7E4_all.deb" ...

If you are running Windows try creating an 'ext4' partition on the unallocated space. I was facing similar problem with Windows 8 but creating a partition beforehand solved the problem. Personally i use Minitools Partition Manager as the windows partition manager does not allow creating a ext4 partition.

You can't have the same IP, but you can just have both interfaces active at once and set up a script to try to determine if the wireless connection is up, then use that. Then if it's not up, default to eth0. But if you've already got a cable run. why use wifi at all? Ethernet is much faster/more reliable/all around better than USB wifi...

The easiest way is to upgrade kernel. Run in terminal sudo apt-get linux-generic-lts-vivid and reboot after installation finishes. But you have to be connected to internet by wire or a USB dongle. If it is not easy, you can try to boot with a previous kernel using grub menu.

It seems that from the menu "Edit connections", that you can find clicking on the icon on the top panel (Ubuntu Unity), you can delete only wireless connections. If you have other networks like phone networks you have to delete them in the /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections folder. You have to become root to delete any subfolder in that folder. For ...

If you'd like help finding the driver, we need to know which driver you need. Right now what you're really asking is how to get the driver through your phone. You have two options: A. Usb tethering (accessing the internet through your phone's data plan) B. Using your phone as a usb drive, downloading the file, and then copy pasting it from your phone's ...

Yes, it is safe as long as you have a complex wifi password.The only way for people to get in is by gaining access to your wifi or router (wan). I recommend that you use a password though. If you want to ensure that nobody is on your network, run the arp -na command (you can also use nmap to scan the whole netmask).

You can try placing a line in this file: /etc/crontab (using sudo) For example: 10 * * * * root /etc/init.d/networking restart OR you can also use the ping command instead of restarting networking (2 * * * * root ping [ex. google.com]) When you save the file this command will automatically (no reboot needed) run as root every 10 minutes by the process ...

As long as you only use this on your private home network and you don't share the network with other people that you don't know/trust (such as in an apartment complex), then you should be fine. WPA2 can be breached through brute-force attacks but someone would have to be in range of your wifi connection in order to attempt to gain access, and if you're very ...

First of all, I think you'll have better luck if your router is set to use WPA2-AES and not TKIP. Second, I believe you are taking the long, complicated route when the short, easy route would work perfectly well. First, I suggest you back up your current wpa_supplicant.conf file: sudo mv /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf ...

The problem is in some of your sysctl settings: net.ipv6.conf.wlan1.accept_ra = 1 This one is fine: accept Router Advertisements net.ipv6.conf.wlan1.accept_ra_defrtr = 0 But this one tells your system not to accept the default route from the RA. The RA does advertise the router as a default gateway. If you want your system to learn this then you have ...
