    Unhappy Belkin Surf N300 Wireless N Router F7D6301/ Ubuntu 11.04/ Lenovo Z575 - Not working

    Hi,
    I recently installed Ubuntu11.04. I am having trouble in connecting to my wireless internet connection. Below are the details I got from various commands which might be helpful.

    1 ) Machine Brand and Model (PC/Laptop)

    9) Restarting the network:
    Code:

       * Running /etc/init.d/networking restart is deprecated because it may not enable again some interfaces
       * Reconfiguring network interfaces...
    But my internet works fine with Windows 7 which is the other OS in my laptop. Kindly help me in solving this problem. Thanks in advance.

    I think you need to install the drivers manually.

    have a read at this guide;

    it seems the most detailed around

    http://www.techytalk.info/ralink-rt3...tu-driver-ppa/

    (I understand that from 2.6.38 version, the driver is included in the kernel)

    let us know how it goes;

    before playing around with the drivers can youn please post the results of:

    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up 
    rfkill list all
    nm-tool
    from the following results that you posted it looks like your card is switched in "OFF" mode.

    There are two drivers loaded rt2860sta and rt2800pci, the latter is in better development right now. Unload both, reload the right one, and blacklist the wrong one:

    Code:
    echo "blacklist rt2860sta" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    sudo modprobe -rf rt2860sta rt2800pci
    sudo modprobe -v rt2800pci
    This
    Code:
    wlan0     IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:off/any  
                Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=off
    means, that there is a button/switch, etc, the card is "off". Also check the BIOS settings.

    Please show:

    Code:
    rfkill list

    Thanks a lot for your reply. Unfortunately my wireless was off. Sorry for not checking that.



    I have edited my original post(ifconfig and sudo lshw -C network) with updated results after ensuring that the wireless is On.Here are the outputs of few other commands. Kindly help me in fixing this.

    cab you try:
    Code:
    sudo rfkill unblock all
    and see if there is any improvement. you may need to reboot. if nothing happens try to follow praseodym steps.

    Try

    Code:
    sudo rfkill unblock all
    You may unload the module acer_wmi:

    Code:
    sudo rmmod acer_wmi

    Thanks for your quick replies. Even after trying these steps, the problem remains. After executing the commands, i rebooted to machine and still unable to connect to internet.

    I am yet to try post 4 and post 6 by pdc and praseodym. Just want to update you with the results after turning on the wireless.
