Instead of using an USB filter, just connect the wireless network on the host operating system, and define a bridged or NAT connection in the VM configuration. On the image referenced in the comments, you have both a bridged adapter to wlan1 and an USB filter. According to the VirtualBox manual, section 3.10: "VirtualBox can allow virtual machines to ...

In debian 7 is not possible to use apt-get install firmware-ralink by default. The solution is here You have to download firmware-ralink and after use dpkg -i in this file.

You indicate that your /etc/resolv.conf contains only nameserver 127.0.0.1. This means your DNS server is configured to be the local host and the local host isn't able to resolve host names. So it's one of two things: This is intentional. You have configured a DNS server on your local machine and its configuration is off somehow. You'll need to check the ...

One important step is you have to remove the WLAN device from NetworkManager to let the hostap manage its. More details at here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=985041#c8

The issue is that one of the kernel headers / interfaces changed in a recent 3.x kernel. Where a UID / GID values were originally referred to as regular integers, they are now structs with a single element. Any code relying on the older definition now will fail to compile until updated to match the new kernel headers. I'm currently experimenting with ...

The BIOS whitelist stops the laptop early in the boot process - an error message is shown similar to the ones you see when some motherboards have no keyboard or other mandatory peripheral connected. Once the laptop is past the BIOS stage and loading the OS, the whitelist is redundant. In fact, the OS will probably not be aware of it's existence and will ...

iw list will also tell you the allowed max power output by frequency. The number in brackets is the max power. I'm not aware of any other way of finding the absolute maximum of the device. Frequencies: * 2412 MHz [1] (20.0 dBm) * 2417 MHz [2] (20.0 dBm) * 2422 MHz [3] (20.0 dBm) ...

Grepping the drivers directory of the kernel source tree for RT5370 turns up; ./net/wireless/rt2x00/Kconfig: Supported chips: RT5370 Kconfig files are used to provide information for things like make menuconfig when configuring a kernel; this one happens to contain information for a number of Ralink PCI and USB based chipsets.

Try going to www.realtek.com and searching for an updated driver (kernel module) for your chipset. I have an 8192 set in my notebook (Kubuntu Precise 12.04 with backports) and it had very poor wifi signal strength until I installed the custom module. (It's still not great, but it's much better than it was.) I think the one you want is the same as mine and ...

Nevermind, figured it out: Problem was, I already had brought the respective interface up ifconfig wlan0 up which prevents the job from working. Info was obtained by running netctl status wlan0-ROUTENZUG

First things first: your hostname.urtwn0 file looks good and if you had a mistake in there you'd get completely different error messages. The message urtwn0: failed loadfirmware of file urtwn-rt18192cfwT (error 2) indicates that the firmware isn't installed in the proper location: As explained in loadfirmware(9), this function returns errno style error ...

It is related to which country you live and have a look at WIFI power by country Some software allow you to go higher than maximum allowed power but that is illegal.

I had the same question, and found the existing answers and comments here a little uninformative. After doing a little more research and asking on IRC, I found a more pragmatic answer. Broadcom historically hasn't cooperated much with efforts to open-source drivers, although it's been changing its approach recently. Because of this, there are still some ...

I had faced a similar problem when a working wifi connection stopped working after a dist-upgrade. (I have HP Pavilion g6, the driver being ralink3290). The problem was that the upgrade modified the module and so the driver that was being used was not the same as was supposed to be used by my system. Use this command to see which wireless controller ...

Like this? Feels like plaugerism but hey ho I like to setup any embedded project with ethernet a static IP so I can ssh into it easily. WiFI is preferred over wired so I can make my project mobile. The great part of doing this was that the BBB didn’t need drivers to work with the Edimax USB WiFi module I have. This is the same one that is often used with ...

The problem you are experiencing is because your system's hostname is changing. Originally your hostname was localhost, but after connecting it becomes localhost.localdomain. This can cause problems due to either of the following: 1. hostname resolution If the new hostname (localhost.localdomain) doesn't resolve properly, processes which use IP based ...

This is essentially Warwick's answer, just with step-by-step instructions. Create the following shell script in your home folder: check_inet.sh #!/bin/bash TMP_FILE=/tmp/inet_up # Edit this function if you want to do something besides reboot no_inet_action() { shutdown -r +1 'No internet.' } if ping -c5 google.com; then echo 1 > $TMP_FILE ...

One way would be to put an entry in root's cron that runs a script every 30 minutes. The script would test the WIFI connection, perhaps using ping, and write the result to a file in /tmp - 1 for connection exists, 0 if it doesn't. Subsequent iterations of the script would then check that file, and if it was 0, and the WIFI connection was still bad, run an ...

it seems Ndiswrapper can not use the 32 bits XP driver with a 64bits Kernel! So, to solve that on my 64 distribution with a PCI card Netgear WG311v2 embedding same ACX111 your wireles adapter, I achieved configuration using gitHub project like described here

Looks like the adapter works without installing any special drivers. I just assumed they would be needed. Just found this out. Sorry!

Well, if you're using WEP mode is clear that it will not work if you are entering a WAP password because passwords must be the same on both router / device that is: Router ...: Mode: - WEP Password: 12345678 Device ..: Mode: - WEP Password: 12345678 What you can do to help improve security if you can not configure both router / device with same ...

Yes, this error is occurring because you are using different encryption modes, because if you will use WEP mode you must use WEP on both routers as devices and not in other ways different. Since each mode operates differentially from one another, because if you use WEP mode, you can not use WAP as well as WPA2, ie safe mode encryption network should be one, ...
