    ASUS laptop wireless

    Installed 12.04 on my ASUS u56e laptop, but I can't get the wireless to work. Any pointers as to where to start? I'm still learning ubuntu.

    Re: Help with ASUS laptop wireless

    To create a detailed report for troubleshooting wireless problems, please download and run wireless info script (developed by Wild Man & Krytarik, helped by anewguy, chili555, llua.).

    You can do it in two ways -

    Method 1. Cable Internet - CLI Method (one-step easy way) -

    If you can connect to internet via cable, usb modem etc., run the following command in a terminal
    (Press Ctrl+Alt+T to open the terminal > copy-paste the command below > press "Enter") -

    Code:
    wget -N -t 5 -T 10 https://github.com/UbuntuForums/wireless-info/raw/master/wireless-info && \
    chmod +x wireless-info && \
    ./wireless-info
    It will automatically download and run the script, and generate a "wireless-info.txt" file in your home directory (or "wireless-info.txt.tar.gz" file, if the text file size exceeds 19.5 KB).
    (You will need to supply your login password when prompted. You won't see any characters on the screen while typing your password).

    Either attach this file (wireless-info.txt or wireless-info.txt.tar.gz, whichever is created), or even better, copy-paste its contents in your next post. (Do remember to paste the contents between 'Code' tags generated by clicking on # button located at the top of edit box, in which you create new posts. Doing so will preserve its formatting and make your post more readable).

    ================================================== =====================================

    Method 2. No Internet - GUI Method (multi-step but still easy to do )-

    If you can't connect to internet -

    * Download the script on another computer by right-clicking this link, and choose to "Save" the link target.
    * Copy the downloaded file to your Ubuntu Desktop (see the "NOTE 2" below) and,
    * run it from there as follows -

    1) Right-click the downloaded file > click "Properties" > go to "Permissions" tab > tick the "Execute" checkbox > close the box.

    2) Double-click the file > select "Run" in the opened dialogue box. Provide your password when asked.
    [NOTE 1: Since Ubuntu 13.04, Text Files open up in text editor even if they are made executable. To change this-
    Open any folder > go to Files > Preferences > Behavior tab > select "Ask each time" option under "Executable Text Files" section.]


    3) A fresh new file "wireless-info.txt" (or "wireless-info.txt.tar.gz" file, if the text file size exceeds 19.5 KB) will be created in the same directory where you have run the script from. Attach it or copy-paste its contents (as described above) in your next post.

    It will give us all the info required to identify the problem and troubleshoot it accordingly. Once again, do not forget to wrap the output in 'Code' tags if you copy-paste the output here. It has the advantage over attachment that everyone will be able to see it without needing to download anything, so you'll have more chance of getting quick replies.

    [NOTE 2: You can't make the script executable if it is on a non-linux partition, for example - a pen drive with FAT32 partition, or a Windows NTFS partition. Also, the script is NOT COMPATIBLE with "sh" (will produce incomplete result if run with sh). So if you have to run it via terminal, please run it without sh or with bash (e.g. - "./wireless_script" or "bash wireless_script")]

    PS:
    • If it is easy for you, it is recommended to use http://pastebin.ubuntu.com to post the contents of the file there, and post its URL in your thread to save server space.
    • If the generated file is "wireless-info.txt.tar.gz" instead of a simple text file, you may simply right-click > Extract here to extract the file, then double click the extracted file to open it.
    • Alternative version of wireless_script, provides information in a different format and sequence that I personally prefer : http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/q...ireless_script

    I also have more information posted in this post, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2077427 from the networking and wireless forum.

    Ubuntu sees the wireless card, but it won't connect to the network. It just keeps popping up the screen where you put in the wireless key.

    Re: Help with ASUS laptop wireless

    I see that you are already being helped by chili555 here : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=12373853

    Since my knowledge or experience is not even close to his, I don't think I can help you any better than he can. So I'd recommend to try 'only' what he suggests. Trying multiple solutions simultaneously will only make the problem worse.

    Good luck !

    Re: Help with ASUS laptop wireless

    I am having some trouble. I am saving the file to a usb, but I cannot make it executable. It simply will not let me make it exe. I downloaded the target to my usb, and when I go to Properties>make executable it does not allow me to change it.


    NVM I moved it from the usb to the desktop, and it worked fine.

    Acer Aspire One 725 netbook, WiFi does not connect and now WiFi does not show up when pulling down the network icon. When I go to Network there is no WiFi, just wired and Proxy. I am sending this via ether net hard wired to roter.

    You never replied to my answer in your original thread : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2169868

    By the way, you seem to be using a wrong parameter for your driver, thus causing it to not load -

    Please post the same results on your original thread, plus output of -
    Code:

    Re: Help with ASUS laptop wireless

    Hey,

    I cant get my wireless working. my card is an RTL8188EE.

    here is the results from the script http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/6126047/

    Cheers.

    EDIT:

    Also I tried the solution on http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2162026 but that didn't work. It said:
    insmod /lib/modules/3.2.0-43-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8188ee/rtl8188ee.ko
    FATAL: Error inserting rtl8188ee (/lib/modules/3.2.0-43-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8188ee/rtl8188ee.ko): Invalid argument

    Hey mitchell5 ! Welcome to the forums.

    Did you get any errors during the compilation of the driver? Warnings even? If you can connect to internet via cable etc., please try updating some packages, then rebuild/reinstall the module. That is - open a terminal, change to the directory where you ran "make install" from, then do -
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    sudo make-uninstall
    make clean
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo modprobe -v rtl8188ee
    Post back the errors/warnings it gives you during the 'make' step (if any).

    If it still gives you errors during the modprobe, please start a new thread with a relevant title, post back the detailed info about the exact solutions and steps you have tried so far, including a link to the fresh report generated by the script after trying above, and post here the link to that thread so I can follow.

    There is an -f switch that you can try with modprobe, but it may be risky. So let's first make sure everything else is being done correctly on our part.
