If it was working with Ubuntu 14, then what is it about 16 that you need to have? I have experience with 16 not working on the neighbors laptop where 14 worked fine.

The problem is evidently the same as with this question. You can test it out by doing sudo modprobe -r acer-wmi sudo rfkill unblock all You can then make this permanent by doing sudo su echo "blacklist acer-wmi" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'iwlwifi': Required key not available This is a new issue in Ubuntu.

You can upgrade the kernel and firmware by one command: sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-xenial linux-firmware if you are connected to internet. Besides that you need to update the kernel to support Intel 8260 adapter, you need to remove a custom btusb-iwlwifi-intel8260 module that you installed to support 8260 on older kernels. Remove it by sudo ...

First things first, make certain it's not now listed in the blacklists found in /etc/modprobe.d/ If it shows in any of those blacklists then sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-[file name it's blacklisted in] and add a # at the start of the line which lists it (It's extremely unlikely that it would now be blacklisted if it was not previously). If not in ...

Have you turned the WiFi device off and then back on? This is often faster than a full reboot. There is usually a WiFi switch or button on HP Laptops. Use it to turn the WiFi off, then back on. This should restore its function (but is of course only a temporary solution). Also, could you provide us a more specific model number? HP shows no results on their ...

Ensure WiFi is set as an active device in the Network settings. While your computer has a WiFi card, it's function may not yet be turned on in your Ubuntu (it is common for this to be so). Once you have turned it on it will remain as such unless you or a system update requires it be turned off, in which case you only need to turn it on again). You did not ...

Short answer. Go to System Settings -> Software & Updates. Make sure that main, universe, multiverse and restricted repositories are checked. Then remove DVD disks as software sources, then run in terminal sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer and reboot. It looks like you used some daily build to install the system, not ...

OpenSSH ssh have a switch -b, which allows you to specify to which local IP address it should bind when connecting to the remote host. There is also respective BindAddress option which you can store in your ssh_config. Let's say your wireless IP address is 192.168.0.5 and remote host is remote, then you can ssh -b 192.168.0.5 remote or store a record in ~...

Intel 8260 adapter is not supported by the 3.19 Linux kernel. You installed Ubuntu 14.04.3, not 14.04.4 with the 4.2 kernel. There are two options to get Wi-Fi working: Upgrade the kernel in your 14.04 installation by running in terminal sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-xenial Upgrade your system to 16.04 or do a fresh install of 16.04.

Please download this file on some other computer and transfer it on a USB key or similar: http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/l/linux-firmware/linux-firmware_1.158_all.deb Drag and drop it to the desktop of your Lenovo.

These adapters do not support 802.11n protocol well (at least on linux), but iwlwifi driver tries to use it. You can disable this protocol by running in terminal sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi-opt.conf <<< "options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1" This will be applied after a reboot.

Did you set the sound over 100% ? In the sound parameters you can tick a box that allow to have a louder volume. I have the same computer and installed 16.04 yesterday and have no sound issues, it was actually really low before I have done this. But after ticking that box, the volume is loud enough.

My notebook is a HP Envy 4. I re-installed a Intel AC3160 into it and I am still not able to get it working in Ubuntu 16.04. I follow your "dmesg | grep ".ucode"" and it displayed that I have a missing iwlwifi-3160-17.ucode. I download it from Github and copy it to the /lib/firmware and reboot. Still not able to get it working. Any solution from you? Thanks

Should have researched further before asking the question. I found the answer in here. The accepted answer can solve the problem for Ubuntu 16.04 as well.

Try disabling and re-enabling both "WiFi" and "Networking" from the "Network" settings icon either in the taskbar or system settings. Prova a disabilitare e riabilitare sia " Wi-Fi " e " in rete " dal Impostazioni " Rete" icona sia nelle impostazioni della barra delle applicazioni o di sistema .

Without knowing more about your system, (see http://askubuntu.com/help/how-to-ask) all I can suggest is: Plug it in. Type the dmesg command to see what the system thinks.

Yours is a very new device. A Google search for the usb.id of 13b1:0042 only finds one page of interest; this one. I then downloaded the Windows 7 driver from Linksys. Here is a snip from the .inf driver file: [Linksys.NTX86.6.1] ; DisplayName Section DeviceID ; ----------- ------- -------- %...

It would help if you had specified what Ubuntu release and which hardware you are using, but you might: Remember the current kernel version (uname -r). Reboot, holding the Shift key, and selecting an older (lower version number) kernel to boot. Select progressively older kernels until you find one under which your wifi works. Install the linux-kernel-...

I suggest that you unload the driver for the internal device: sudo modprobe -r rtl8188ee And blacklist it: sudo -i echo "blacklist rtl8188ee" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf exit Any improvement? It may take a reboot.

Try to upgrade Ubuntu 16.04, driver mt7601u is already included in 4.X version of kernel. However, if you prefer to use Ubuntu 14.04 follow this post.

It could just be that it simply doesn't have drivers for Ubuntu. Try and google "tplink TL w572 drivers linux" and see what comes up. If nothing relevant comes up, then the adapter is sadly not supported.

First, I suggest that you update the firmware. With a working internet connection, open a terminal and do: wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/l/linux-firmware/linux-firmware_1.158_all.deb sudo dpkg -i linux-firmware*.deb Next, check the settings in the router. WPA2-AES is preferred; not any WPA and WPA2 mixed mode and certainly not TKIP. ...

Have you tried updating the drivers? Or, I think, the simpliest way to physically replace the wireless adapter is to buy something like https://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Ausb%20wifi%20adapter (if you don't want to open your laptop and mess around).

Run in terminal sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist_acer-wmi.conf <<< "blacklist acer_wmi" and reboot. It does not matter where to add the blacklist line to blacklist.conf or a separate file. But it is a good practice to add custom modprobe config to separate files, not to be overwritten by package updates.

Have you tried to disable power management on your wireless card?? I have different wireless card, but I was having a similar issue with my rtle8723be card and forcing the power management feature to be disabled worked. power management on some WiFi cards are an experimental option. For your WiFi kernel module I found this: sudo nano -w /etc/modprobe.d/...

You can also use the iw tool (from the iw package) to obtain the WiFi link parameters which includes the currently associated SSID - e.g for wlan0: iw dev wlan0 link

I also had the same problem with you. Sometimes I can't connect to the network after my laptop is suspended. I typically restart the network with this command: sudo service network-manager restart Hope it helps.

It looks like you don't have some software that is usually included with a default Ubuntu install. This is probably why wifi worked during the live session but did not work after the install. Preferably, you should find an ethernet cable to provide network access. After you establish a network connection, press CTRL + ALT + T to open a terminal and then ...
