View Full Version : [ubuntu_studio] No wireless after upgrade to 11.10

Hi

After upgrading to 11.10 my wireless connection stopped working. The wired connection still works even if clicking on the network manager icon will tell you "device not managed" for that too.
I messed about with the libnss3 package trying to follow the instructions i found online, which were for a beta version of 11.10 i think - that didn't work. That might have led to that when i try to reinstall libnss3 in synaptic i get "E: Internal Error, No file name for libnss3".
Long story short, I don't know what to do and obviously i shouldn't just try things at random...
Oh, and I'm running a 64 bit system (w/ ubuntu studio).

All help is greatly appreciated!

When i click on the network manager icon it states "device not managed" for both wired and wireless connections. The wired connection works though.

Hi,

I have the same problem since I have upgraded to 11.10, yesterday nothing wanted to work and the computer didn't find any wireless network and today after updating my system the wireless section on the right top had totally disappear, only the wired still appear . And of course the wireless on my key board stay orange like when it's off and nothing happens when i push on it.

Same here with a Linksys WUSB100N. After upgrading to 11.10 no more wifi: the module (rt2870.sta) is missing.

The Ralink staging drivers have been removed from kernel version,s 3.0 and greater.

What you need to do is unblacklist the rt2* drivers from '/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf'

Anyway you can always try this:


sudo modprobe rt2800usb

I'm having the same issue.

There were no rt2* drivers in '/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf'.

sudo modprobe rt2800usb didn't work. Though I haven't restarted, shouldn't need that should I?

ifconfig only gives me information for eth0 and lo.

The dropdown in the top right shows nothing about wireless.

Network settings shows Wired and Network Proxy.

Thanks Jerry, that solved it.

tony512, restarting would be unnecessary. What type of USB wireless device are you trying to use?

peepingtom,
Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4321 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 03)


sudo modprobe b43
^ This worked for me. Same concept but modified for a different device. Wireless immediately turned on and connected (had been previously configured in 11.04). Thanks Jerry.

PatrickZ and Xenoty, I imagine the solution to your issue is centered around the type of device you have as well.

Try:

lspci
and find the line for Network Controller, what is it?
Post the whole thing if you want.

One update on my situation: wireless works, but it takes two full minutes to find a network configuration at start up, then only comes on as I log on to the desktop.

...and another thing: my computer (a laptop) stopped going to sleep after "closing the lid". What is that about?

My slow start up is solved: there was some old stuff left in the /etc/network/interfaces that got in the way.

I have an HP DV5000 with broadcom B43** wireless. During upgrade to 11.10 I had "failed to load installer for wireless firmware".
After much searching, found through Software Centre, I put "B43" in search box which then showed 4 B43.. items, the last not activated (legacy installer) I selected that and 20 secs later was up and running.

Still no wireless. Hints/tips, anything? Computer says both wired and wireless are "unmanaged", the wired works though, the wireless does not.

Somebody? Or do I have to do a clean installation? I'm seriously thinking about it...

Same here. After upgrading to 11.10, wireless and wired both show in network panel applet as 'device not managed', however wired connection works. Previously wireless worked out of the box with 11.04.

lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

Found a workaround: used Ubuntu Software Center to install wicd, which was able to find the available wireless networks. Network panel applet still shows 'device not managed', but wireless is automatically connected on startup.

This is a pretty nasty upgrade path!
