I recently installed ubuntu 8.10 on my Dell Inspiron 9400 while I am a bit familiar with linux wireless networking new to me; I am trying to determine whether my wireless card is recognized and working.

I searched the forums and have posted some of the info I have seen requested in previous posts:

lo Interface doesn't support scanning.

eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.

wmaster0 Interface doesn't support scanning.

wlan0 No scan results

pan0 Interface doesn't support scanning.

ifconfig wlan0

One last thing the wifi light on the laptop is on.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It looks like it almost wanted to work out of the box.

There is probably a conflicting module loading. Post the output of:

lsmod

Thanks saw it as well in my search but just didn't want to break anything without asking first.

if you know the I/P address of your router you could try to ping it. My wireless router allocates all i/p addresses on my home network and has assigned itself an i/p address of 192.168.2.1 so from my unbuntu laptop i do
ping 192.168.2.1
and get
jim@tiny:~$ ping 192.168.2.1
PING 192.168.2.1 (192.168.2.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 192.168.2.1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=128 time=1.25 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.2.1: icmp_seq=2 ttl=128 time=1.22 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.2.1: icmp_seq=3 ttl=128 time=1.72 ms

So i know my wireless card in my laptop can 'see' the router. Yours just does not appear to have an i/p address assigned.

I am following the instructions on this page to establish an ad-hoc connection: http://prash-babu.blogspot.com/2008/08/how-to-createjoin-adhoc-network-in.html

But I get the following error on step 6:

Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Input/output error.


That's why am wondering if the card is recognized and working.

I see something weird here. The output of:

$ sudo lshw -C Network

the module is driver=iwl3945 but lsmod shows


iwl3945 98804 0
rfkill 17176 2 iwl3945
mac80211 216820 1 iwl3945

as you can see the module is not in use?... I have not experience with the brand of your wireless card, but I think you may need to black list some modules.

What tells me the module not in use and how and what do I blacklist?

This is from the other thread on fixing your card. Its very benign and easy to undo if it does not solve the problem.


1.sudo su

2.echo -e “alias wlan0 iwl3945 \noptions iwl3945 disable_hw_scan=1″ > /etc/modprobe.d/iwl3945

3.reboot

An update I setup a test adhoc networkvia the wireless manager in windows:

No encryption
SSID jkgnet

Now I get the following output:

It seems that the network is detected am I correct?

try:
# wlist <interface> scanning essid <your essid>

if card and driver are working then you will get some info back about your access point.

If yes - get some info back - then
Your interface is not configured - are you using dhcp, provided by your router?
how is your router set-up? use WEP, WPA, WPA2 ....

It sure is.

Do:


sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid jkgnet
sudo ifconfig wlan0 192.168.1.5 netmask 255.255.255.0

where 192.168.1.x is an ip on the windows machine.
then try to ping the windows box..

Not sure I'm making progress 2 problems:

1. when I assign an IP address to wlan0 it knocks out my existing wired (eth0) internet connection
2. my sound has died too coincidental to be unrelated

You are so close!

Is the ad-hoc network showing up in Network Manager?


Do you have a wireless router?

Ran into a few snags and apparently the sound thing is an Intrepid bug had to do a reinstall of 8.04 LTS will run through the steps and report back in a day or two.

Thanks for all your assistance thus far.

I have a similar problem. I just bought a wireless USB card that was on a Linux compatibility list. I can see the device on lsusb. But when I do ifconfig, I don't have wlan0 or wmaster0. How do I get the system (8.10) to use the new wireless adapter?
