I found the answer on the arch linux forums. It is a bizzare problem with the wl driver on Dell xps machines. Somehow, I had pressed Ctl+Prtsc, which disabled the driver through the hardware and made the wireless deice disappear. To solve, press Ctl+Prtsc again. It may take several tries before it works.

I had the same problem, but as it all worked on raspian, I copied ALL the files from /lib/firmware/brcm on raspian to my gentoo system on the theory that if they were not required they would not be loaded. The problem was solved!

I solved my similar issue, maybe this applies to you too. It appears I had accidentally pressed Fn + F2, which in this Fujitsu Siemens turns off the wifi. And, surprise-surprise, it remembers the choice even after a shutdown. Check to make sure there isn't a physical button or shortcut combo like mine which deactivates your wifi. Apparently this persists ...

With regards to SDIO to USB adapters like something based off of a VUB300, under Linux, the bridge itself will Hot-plug USB and do the "right" things. The SDIO device, on the other hand...depends on whether the vendor (giving TI a nasty, nasty look right now...grrr...) did something non-standard and their drivers RELY on that off in the weeds behavior. The ...

The issue was not with the route configuration, instead iptables configuration was missing.

I figured out that it was indeed the rtl8187 driver that was modifying the duration field. The driver was calculating the duration and replacing my custom duration with the calculated one. I had to edit the driver code and recompile it in order to transmit the raw 802.11 frame like I wanted. Once the driver code was modified, any of the utilities mentioned ...

You need to use a hub to connect all devices within the LAN such that they can communicate. The reason this is the case is that you don't want to have to route traffic to the Internet BEFORE trying to route traffic to your local devices. The ONLY way to link within the broadcast domain (i.e. your local LAN) is to use a hub. So, what you want is: Unbuntu >...

The bcm4312 is supported by the b43 driver. Install the firmware-b43-lpphy-installer package . Unload driver: modprobe -r b43-pci-bridge modprobe -r ssb Load the b43 driver : modprobe b43

You need to build a new kernel. The Brodcom BCM43142 is working under the 3.2.81 kernel version. To get some idea about the problem we can refer to the Bug report posted by @stephen-kitt 1) Remove the bcmwl driver 2) Compile the 3.2.81 Kernel 3) Re-install the broadcom-sta-dkms

When you booted your laptop and configured the wired bge0 interface via dhclient, it became the default route (as seen in the rightmost column in the output of netstat -r). When you later configured your wireless bwn0 interface and disconnected the wired interface, it wasn't set to be the default route. When you tried to access the network (or reply to ...

From what I can see from the dmesg it's not setting up the wlan network card at all. Use the command "rfkill list" to see if the card is soft blocked or hard blocked , if it's hard blocked try switching it on from the button otherwise use the command "rfkill unblock wifi".

I encountered this issue when my wifi device was in 'Access Point' Mode. I changed mode to 'client'. Then command started working perfectly. Command works with 'ad-hoc' mode as well.

To disable Wireless N in the module echo "options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/iwl-opt.conf Reboot But I would suggest enabling Wireless N on the router and trying this option echo "options iwlwifi 11n_disable=8" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/iwl-opt.conf This command enables aggressive TX on Wireless-N and fixes a lot of issues

Are you sure that you installed the driver? In Linux, drivers are treated as kernel modules and need to be loaded as such. After downloading the driver via you distribution's package manager, it must be loaded with the modprobe command. First, download the driver: sudo apt-get install iwlwifi-firmware Then unload the conflicting modules modprobe -r b44 ...

From modinfo iwlwifi: parm: uapsd_disable:disable U-APSD functionality (default: Y) (bool) it looks like it's disabled by default.

I normally use dmesg | grep <used module> to show the kernel messages related to the used module.

After reading @travis-pessetto 's answer to the question "Can't access Eduroam wireless internet connection SETTINGS (Linux Mint 17)", I thought it was worthwhile to note that the CAT eduroam installer only worked for me with root privileges: sudo ./eduroam-linux-<your_institution>.sh

You can NAT the web port of your PI's IP to the IP of the printer. On your PI run the following: iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -d X.X.X.X -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to-destination Y.Y.Y.Y where X.X.X.X is the IP address of your PI and Y.Y.Y.Y is the IP address of the printer. Once this is done you should be able to open the printer web interface in ...

A couple of things. First of, some printer makers have Apps that you can control your printer from. Maybe that would help you. But you have sort of a dilemma here. If you are running your printer from a browser on the Pi, when you do http transactions, the client is the Pi. So if the web page says "Browse to a file to print", you are really browsing the ...

On Ubuntu at least, there is the /proc/net/wireless file that contains details about the Wi-Fi interfaces.

If you have a second network device you can set up NAT forwarding. Connect to your "internal" network with your cellphone or laptop and have the RPi forward that connection to the network at large. Then authenticate with the browser on your laptop or phone. The network sees the external MAC address of your RPi and associates that with the authenticated ...

Skylake support isn't currently all that good in Linux in general. Furthermore, the default kernel in Debian 8.4 (and the associated firmware) is too old... You should try the updates available in the backports: echo deb http://http.debian.net/debian jessie-backports main contrib non-free > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jessie-backports.list (as root), then ...
