Okay after searching some more, and focusing on the driver problem i came up with this: echo "options ath9k nohwcrypt=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf sudo modprobe -rfv ath9k sudo modprobe -v ath9k I have no idea what it does, but it worked!

You can solve this by clicking the "Connect to hidden network" button and giving it the name of the network you want to connect to. Tested on Linux mint 17 "Rebecca"

The route problem may be that you were using eth0 initially and so there was a default route for that interface. You may need to do an ifdown eth0 if this happens again, in order to get rid of the unwanted route. I will also add that I have found USB wifi adapters to almost universally crappy, and even more-so in Linux (due to closed-source drivers). I ...

See wifi not working, have I installed the correct drivers?; your wifi adapter needs kernel 3.10 or later. You can install 3.16 from the Debian backports, or wait for the release of Debian 8 in just a few days (April 25).

I fixed it by upgrading the kernel to 3.16, it is in wheezy-backports, it is also in jessie, expected to be released on 25 Apr 2015 (latter this month). Thanks to @Nasha 's comment, I followed your support link to intel's site, and found the driver (7260 ac), it says there, that I need a newer kernel, at least 3.10, so I found that there is a 3.16 in ...

Schools and enterprise organizations usually use WPA2 Enterprise and PEAP combination as the security protocol and authentication method respectively. You will have to configure this. Assume Elementary OS uses Network Manager to manage network connections, click the network icon. Next Click "Edit Connections..." from the drop-down menu. You should see a ...

Many school/college network auth systems don't play well with certain browsers. I know Midori is the default on Elementary OS so download Firefox and try loading up a page in this after connecting. EDIT: Ok, just to cover the obvious, if you're switching OS's a lot this might be down to something as silly as misconfigured keyboard.. Try typing the network ...

mac here doesn't have any relation to Macs: MAC stands for Media Access Control. The module described in details here and it just provides a framework for Wi-Fi drivers to build upon. Also, cfg80211 provides the configuration layer. As I understand it, iwldvm just provides lower-level functionality for iwlwifi (thus the dependency) and other Intel WLAN ...

The following worked for me on Linux Mint "Rebecca" 64bit, running Cinnamon: Open the DVD / USB with the Linux install. Go to /pool/main/e/eglibc. Install both packages. (libc6-dev & libc-dev-bin) Go to /pool/main/b/bcmwl. Install package. (bcmwl-kernel-source). Note: If you don't find the packages there, search them elsewhere in /pool. (updates ...

AFAIK, /sys/class/net/interface name holds the key. If there is a wireless directory contained in one of the interface name directories, then that is a wireless interface.

(as I am not allowed to post a comment, will post pseudo-answer) (1) Have your tried connecting to the AP via different OS (or kernel) from this machine? Then (2) judging by the MAC address of gw, your router device is made by D-Link (or has NIC from D-Link). May it be the router / gw started automatically blocking you after some event? And (3) is your ...

Instead of using commands like ifconfig -s or netstat -i one can check the following files to monitor a wi-fi connection status: /sys/class/net/wlan0/flags indicates wheter the device is on or off. It tells nothing about packet transmission so it's not really useful to check if your connection is working or not. It's contents/values are 0x1003 (on) and ...

Maybe you could do your research on the ns-3 platform? ns-3 A network simulator for Internet systems It abstracts away all the low level issues, and let you concentrate on the concrete research goal providing a high level API for simulation to you. Good luck.

You have to modify your BIOS or the ID of your card. See the Problem with unauthorized MiniPCI network card article on the ThinkWiki for details.


2

Not unless you're willing to replace the BIOS. IBMs are usually considered "corporate" machines and this restriction is a "feature" so that you as a user can not install an unsecured or untested Wi-Fi card and bring down your corporate network. Even in the "home" space, it is still considered a "security feature". This is a design decision by IBM and ...

So, the core problem there is that it's looking for the kernel header files needed to compile new kernel modules. You can install those with sudo yum install kernel-devel But the further trick is that the compile process is looking for kernel devel files which match your running kernel. You can run uname -r to find the currently-running kernel, and rpm -q ...


1

The basic problem was you do not have kernel headers installed. If you do sudo yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers and boot into the new installed kernel. Then your driver make will be able to find your kernel headers in /lib/modules/{uname -r}/build

The TPLink device is connected to your host machine, not your guest. The guest VMs see a virtual Ethernet device, which explains what you can see in the output of ip link etc. To allow the guest access to the physical USB device you need to set up USB Passthrough. If the VM is off, open the VM's settings and select USB. On the right hand side of the ...
