View Full Version : [ubuntu] wireless device not ready

July 4th, 2009, 11:59 AM
Hello everybody, I'm relativlly new to linux and my knowledge is very limited.
I cannot connect to wireless, network manager says device not ready and wifi-radar shows nothing.
I run ubuntu 9.04.

iwconfig wlan0 :

wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:""
Mode:Ad-Hoc Frequency:2.412 GHz Cell: Not-Associated
Tx-Power=20 dBm

Power Management:on
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0

When I try ifconfig wlan0 up it sayspermission denied, can't remeber how the chmod goes...ls

lshw :
-network:0 DISABLED

Imanaged to solve connection with ndiswrapper, but still cannot really conncet to internet, 'cause using wan connection to ISP. I get connceted to router but that's it.
Also tried pppoeconf and pppconfig but I can only setup a ppp over ethernet not wireless.
How to realize a wan connection to internet by wireless??
Can't find any threads here for help..

Everything's fu*** now!

Alternative is clean install, I'm idealess
