View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem with WLAN after Upgrade to 9.10 - unknown error 132" wlan0

January 3rd, 2010, 10:35 PM
Hi everybody,

I promised I searched for a solution almost the whole day, partly in the internet partly in this forum - but found no solution.

After I upgraded to the latest KUbuntu using aptitude like 2 month ago, I lost my WLAN connectivity.

On root@Aahz:~# ifconfig wlan0 up I get "unknown error 132" wlan0.

In some article I found a manual solution: root@Aahz:~# rfkill unblock all and root@Aahz:~# ifup wlan0.

But after a while I think that solution sucks.

I would like to use the KNetworkManager again for automatic connection to my network instead of always having to start the shell to fumble around.

Anybody an idea? Any help is greatly appreciated.

In /var/log/messages it says
"ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready"
and after the rfkill unblock all
"ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlan0: link becomes ready"
