    trying to install file extracted from tar.gz

    I am trying to install file which is microcode for Intel Wireless 5100 AGN - filename is iwlwifi-5000-5.ucode but could not find a way to get wireless driver to be installed in ubuntu 11.04. I am doing this because I cant even get wireless connected with password/key.

    What can I do ?

    Do you know where the driver expects the firmware to be? When you run the dmesg command, you should have an error message somewhere that tells you. Then just copy the firmware file to that location.

    Re: trying to install file extracted from tar.gz

    The iwlagn driver for intel cards does not stay connected in "N" capacity if router is set
    only for "N" and not mixed with "G". It will if you use 3.0 kernel, has been fixed so you
    need 3 all.deb, headers and image downloaded and installed link below:
    http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.0-rc2-oneiric/
    http://ubuntuguide.net/how-to-instal...-natty-narwhal
    Works in natty:
    If you do not have 3.0 kernel need to make a config file:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/iwlagn.conf
    and insert this line and save.
    options iwlagn 11n_disable50=1 11n_disable=1


    ## The iwlagn driver is a kernel driver do not need anything else.


    #You do have to make sure router is set right to wep or wpa and such for accepting password:

    ## Cannot get 3.0 rc4 kernel to work in Natty at this time just the 3.0 rc2, I find anyway.

    So did you check your setup with encryption type (AES) and or wep or wpa, wpa2 whatever
    you use.

    Re: trying to install file extracted from tar.gz

    Something must have happened - I installed kernel 3.0 like you suggested me to do and then I checked the network connections available, and all wireless connections are now gone, and no options to select my wireless connection.

    Sigh... wireless in 11.04 is pain in the butt. What options do I have ? Should I downgrade to 10.04 LTS ?

    This will turn radio signal on.
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    Make sure your wireless is enabled with network applet in upper right.

    This will reboot network manager copy and paste one at a time.
    Code:
    sudo service network-manager stop
    sudo rm /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state
    sudo service network-manager start
    Code:
    rfkill list
    If say yes:
    Code:
    rfkill unblock all
    ###I run the same driver "iwlagn" and it works has to be something in setup, I no it is real frustrating:
    This will show it is in the kernels:
    Code:
    locate iwlagn
    You did download and install like below? From second link I gave you:

    1.) Download the debs from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.0-rc2-oneiric/
    There are three packages need to install in this order: linux-headers-*-all.deb, linux-headers-*-generic-*.deb, and finally linux-image-*.deb.

    Done with all the installation and it's now installed - I double checked and it's all there.

    I have tried network manager stop/start commands.

    I did what you instructed me to do. I still do not see the wireless device, only my wired connection. I think I got the router and password stuff fixed, all I need to do is get the wireless device on network list which is not appearing at all.

    Are the other networks around you showing there SSID's?

    Does this show yours?
    Code:
    iwlist scan
    What does this show below?? Is Network Manager and wireless say true.
    Code:
    gedit /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state
    What did
    Code:
    locate iwlagn
    it say? Show your driver in the kernel?
    When you ran below:
    Code:
    rfkill list
    what did it say?

    Need to know what the code said so I know where you are at, post some of the results
    copy and paste them here. You should be working will be something simple when we see it.
    What does this say:
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C network
