Your question is stated in a rather chaotic way, but this is what I understand: You're talking about enabling your wireless network adapter using a command that requires root privileges (hence run using sudo). The command you're executing actually removes a module (see man modprobe under the -r option). It was probably suggested that you remove the ...

If you're using NetworkManager (and you very likely are): nmcli radio wifi off. This is simply a command line interface equivalent of the widget. NetworkManager is a complicated beast. I'm not sure what the basic commands are that it's using.

The answer was given by an update of the arch linux kernel to 4.1.2. Now it works again, thus it must have been something to do with the kernel version.

Just installed LinuxMint 17.2 on a Dell Latitude E5520, and above instructions were found correct for connecting to eduroam (Erasmus University Rotterdam); Make sure you open "Network Connections" instead of "Network"; Also, after adding the "eduroam" Wifi network, on the Wireless networking page a "Preferences" button appears next to the eduroam network.

I'm using Linux Mint 17.1 and followed this guide which was working for me. What I did in a nutshell.. Started the Network Connections1 app: Added a new Wi-Fi network connection: Entered the following credentials: I think that was it. 1 Note: Make sure you open "Network Connections" instead of "Network"

You have to switch from Managed mode to Roaming mode. It consist of defining your WiFi networks in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf and using logical interfaces in /etc/network/interfaces. To adapt the example from /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/README.Debian.gz (which is a good read), write something like network={ ssid="ATUX_wifi" ...

Is /etc/resolv.conf a symbolic link? Check with ls -l /etc/resolv.conf. If you see something like lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 31 May 3 18:30 /etc/resolv.conf -> /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf then your resolv.conf is managed by resolvconf. Before overwriting the content, you'll see a big header warning you # Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc ...

sudo chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf Source.

It sounds like you want to set Linux up as a wireless access point. You can do this either with multiple physical wireless NICs or one single NIC. If you've ever used a wifi router with a "guest network" feature, it is typically providing multiple wireless networks over a single physical wifi radio set. That is, it advertises multiple SSIDs over the same ...

As long as your bluetooth or wwan module is on, just turning the wifi off won't set the airplane mode. So you have to turn them off as well and then the GUI of the Networkmanager will show you that the airplane mode is on.

Type sudo apt-get install iw , iw is a utility that can manipulate wireless devices and their configurations. After installing it type iw list , it will print a list, under Supported interface modes : if you see AP, then it means it supports. For finding that faster you can type iw list | grep AP

and welcome to Unix & Linux Stackexchange. Getting GNU/Linux and wifi drivers to play nicely together can be truly frustrating, I know. I am having issues myself with one Broadcomm and one Qualcomm set, on two different boxes). Haven't been fiddling with Mint though, but I hope I can give some pointers anyway. Have you tried downloading the ...

I ended up talking to the organization's IT and resolved the issue easily. My mistake consists of several missteps: including the wrong certificate not including the right root certificate not ordering the certificates in the right order The "CA certificate" file needs to be a single text file (PEM format) containing a list of certificates, chained in ...

It seems you need to chomp the $interface.

I think best way is to connect your laptop to Ethernet port, and update your system sudo apt-get update -y sudo apt-get upgrade -y After updating Go to Ubuntu Search and search for Additional Drivers, opening window will list the additional drivers, this will have wifi driver just activate that driver

All realtek chipsets are not well supported in linux, specially new and rarely used ones. You have to do a little research before buying a Wi-Fi adapter, if possible return it and buy TP-Link WN722N, this one has Atheros chipset and well tested with kali Linux, Backtrack etc. Possibly you are fooled by flipkart , be aware of cheap brands like leoxsys, ...

Thank you Stephen ! So I did that: I added this line to /etc/apt/sources.list: deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free Then, I ran this command: apt-get install firmware-b43-installer Just a reboot and it works !

This is a bug in the driver. You have to patch the driver and compile it yourself. See: http://askubuntu.com/questions/387780/cant-change-brcm-monitor0-in-proc

Apparently these networks with web-based auth rely on MAC based access control post-authentication, so you can simply authenticate on a different device while spoofing your Pi's MAC address, and then your Pi should be able to get on the network. Got this tip from http://frankiejarrett.com/how-to-connect-apple-tv-to-a-hotel-wi-fi-network/

Bonding was exactly what I needed, so I adapted this answer. I can backup both interfaces and designate the ethernet interface as the primary one. In fact I didn't want a different address for each interface. I thought I had to do it with different ones but the solution with only one address and automatic backup is exactly what I wanted. (I also tested with ...

Yes there is no software that allows you to use your internal wireless adaptor to connect a virtual machine to wifi. If you need to connect to wifi on the vm you will need an external usb wifi adaptor. And you would have to change the network setting to bridge mode and connect it to your external usb wifi adaptor. i had the same problem a week ago. i ...

Debian- and Ubuntu-compatible software should be ok. Googleing "captive portal ubuntu" gave me CoovaChilli.

I would use device bonding, meaning you are creating a new virtual device for which you assign the network settings (e.g. IP address, mask, etc.) and then you enslave both the ethernet and wifi interfaces to that interface. Something like: $ sudo modprobe bonding $ sudo ifconfig bond0 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.0.0 $ sudo ifenslave bond0 eth0 wlan0 ...

I have accomplished something similar to what you are describing using 2 wifi interfaces and wired Ethernet concurrently. The wired Ethernet is connected to a test network. The 1st wifi adapter is configured as a AP using hostapd for initial configuration. The 2nd wifi adapter is connected to the local wifi network for access throughout the building. ...
