According to wireless.wiki.kernel , there are two way to get the wifi working: 1) Compile a new kernel version at least the 4.0 or 2) Using backport It is possible to use newer ath10k driver on an older kernel with backports project. Download latest backports release from here and unpack it. Run defconfig for ath10k: make defconfig-ath10k ...

Open /etc/resolv.conf and check that it contains a valid DNS server (e.g. google): nameserver 8.8.8.8 Normally when modified you won't need to restart the network manager, as it will detect and apply the changes.

Since you have the wl driver properly installed, from the console try: sudo rmmod -f ideapad_laptop That may get things going. If not (or to blacklist the module across reboots), try: echo "blacklist ideapad_laptop" >> /etc/modprobe.d/ideapad.conf and reboot. Apparently there may be conflicts with the ideapad_laptop module trying to manage the ...

I think it would work properly if you add the dns-namservers to your eth0 aswell, or by configuring your dhcp server/router to give the resolvers you want , while making sure in the first place that you can ping those adresses

In my case it was an issue of the configuration file /etc/dhcpcd.conf. It had an entry static domain_name_servers=192.168.1.1 and whenever the Ethernet was connected, resolvconf overwrote the nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf, breaking Internet access via domain names.

You need to install firmware-realtek Binary firmware for Realtek wired and wireless network adapters This package contains the binary firmware for some Ethernet adapters with the RTL8111/RTL8168 chips supported by the r8169 driver; and wireless network cards with the RTL8188, RTL8192, RTL8712, RTL8723 and RTL8821 chips supported by the r8192_pci, ...

First of all, you need to change your connection from NAT to Bridge, so it'll obtain IP address in your main system's private range and from your network not from VMware Adapter. I recommend you read this article though it's for VirtualBox not VMware, but it can help you much. Then you need to bring your interfaces up by running ifconfig yourInterface up. ...

The ath5k driver is not related to your hardware. Trying anything with it will not fix your problem, since it is a driver for atheros hardware, not Intel. It may be that there's a second hardware switch on your laptop. Look for a slider or something of the sort. If you can't find that, check your BIOS; I've seen cases where the 'hardware' rfkill switch was ...

Instructions for Mint 17: Go to Main Menu -> Preferences -> Network Connections, click on Add and choose Wi-Fi. Choose a network name (SSID), Infrastructure mode. Go to to Wi-Fi Security and choose WPA/WPA2 Personal and create a password. Go to IPv4 settings and check that it is shared with other computers. Do sudo vi /etc/NetworkManager/system-...

No. If you open up a terminal you could define wireless networks and connections by using wifi-menu which I think is easiest and will automatically insert the Key and SSID in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa-supplicant.conf

This solution worked for me. The procedure I followed was: I followed the steps for my distribution (Debian Jessie) from here. I saved de driver for Linux of the manufacturer (which comes with the equipment in the CDROM), and I unzipped it to a folder. In the folder, I typed make (as root), and I got an error. So, I did the modification above, and it ...

And that's impossible. A short google would have told you that the NIC isn't passed through, and that the only virtual interface your Kali VM is ever going to see is wired.

You have full support from official tp-link webpage, here the source (to compile): http://www.tp-link.com/res/down/soft/TL-WN823N(EU)_V2_160315_Linux.zip be careful with the hw version: you can choose v1 or v2.

I tried revisiting this issue yesterday, and still have the problem even with kernel 4.6.3. Manually installing the latest firmware image also didn't help. However, trying iw reg set US on a second laptop running the same kernel worked fine. The problem machine is a Thinkpad X1 Carbon (Gen.3), which has an Intel 7265D WiFi card; the working machine is a ...

There is no hard and fast answer to this, the best advice I could give is to try and see what works. The readme suggests that for your tablet, you'll need the first two patches, so apply and test those. Add the third if your kernel version is earlier then 4.3.

After a research and the hints from Stephen Kitt, Ive found the solution. Like dmesg was showing "...the firmeware couldnt be loaded" so I installed the package "firmware-iwlwifi" which was missing. Thanks for the help.

I'm trying to connect my OpenBSD 5.8 laptop... I recommend upgrading to 5.9—wireless has been improved here. The netmask and default gateway address I took from my Windows computer which is on the same network. Have you tried using DHCP instead? For example: $ cat /etc/hostname.iwi0 dhcp NONE NONE NONE nwid id wpakey passphrase The route show ...

Remove wicd because it will cause some conflict with NetworkManager : Warning: Running multiple network managers will cause problems, so it is important to disable all other network management daemons. Then remove wpa-ssid and wpa-psk from your /etc/network/interfaces

Is installing and setting up wicd out of the question? I've used network-manager on various laptops with various wifi cards and dongles, and sometimes network-manager works fine... but when it fails, it doesn't give much information as to what might be wrong, sometimes its errors omit some necessary piece of debugging data, other times the messages are ...

Listen on a wifi network that you are connected to or any network? Connected network with tcpdump tcpdump -le | egrep -o '([0-9A-Fa-f]{2}[:-]){5}([0-9A-Fa-f]{2})' Not connected with aircrack-ng For watching all wifi traffic, even on different SSIDs you'll need something like aircrack-ng's airodump-ng. I'm not setup to use it right now, so I can't help ...

Your airserv-ng machine will need one connection in monitor mode and a second adapter (Ethernet, Bluetooth, or wireless, doesn't matter) for connecting to a network.

That particular wifi hardware requires a non-free blob of firmware to work. Running apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree should do the trick. If you get an error saying there's no such package, edit /etc/apt/sources.list/ and change the line saying something like deb http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/ jessie main to deb http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/ ...

The root cause was that initial release of ath9k driver in kernel-2.6.27 had limited chipset support. Kernel-2.6.32 has support for the AR9227 chip in TP-LINK TL-WN851ND PCI card. Credit for the solution goes to @jeremy31 who suspected that the installed ath9k driver may not support the actual chipset. What I have learned is that even if module installs ...

No, you cannot update your repos' database fetching the new ones' content from the Internet, without having an Internet Connection. You could update it only from a local device (i.e. cd-rom). It's not a matter of apt-get that you can workaround with aptitude. You just need an Internet connection. If you don't have one nor can in any way solve this issue (for ...

I also have an Cisco E3000 router and the same Atheros WiFi chip in my laptop running Debian 8, you must change a few settings on your router and you will get 150Mbps as I am.

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.
