    SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not permitted

    Hello,
    I'm trying to use the command :
    Code:
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    And I'm getting this error:
    Code:
    SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not permitted
    There is any way to fix it?
    thanks

    With privileged commands like that, you need to put the word "sudo" in front. This will ask you to repeat your password before running the command as root (the super-user).
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up

    Thanks for your quick reply, but it's still not working.

    I don't know what to try beyond that. Can you post the output of these commands:
    Code:
    lspci -v
    ifconfig -a
    iwconfig
    and I'll move the thread to the networking forum where you are more likely to get the attention you need.
