HI i just downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 and i am running it within windows 7. I cannot connect to a wireless network within ubuntu. No wireless networks show up when i click the network icon in the upper right corner. I can connect to a wired network however. I am running a Toshiba Satellite L675 with a Realtek RTL 8188CE built in wireless adapter. What can i do to connect in ubuntu. Win7 works fine.:)

I also have the l675, and am also having these same problems with wireless. Been updating through wired for a month now and still no luck. I can see my wireless light on and network manager and network selector both show no interface. Please help us, internet sucks on windows!!!!!mananger

HI, I am running Ubuntu 10.10 along side Windows 7 on my toshiba laptop. I cannot connect to the internet via wireless in ubuntu. It does not even recognize or show any wireless connections available. I have tried everything to get it to work and nothing has solved my problem. Please help!!!

Yeah this sucks. Ubuntu seems to have absolutely no support for some wireless devices. At least i have windows on the same computer where i can get on the internet. Ubuntu is worthless to me as i can really do nothing with it without internet access. I surprised that this OS does not support equipment that you would see on any modern device esspecially since ubuntu 10.10 is the latest distro. I can connect to the internet in ubuntu plug in my ethernet card however but i would like it to work wirelessly. I guess i,ii keep trying:p!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK, Thats it for linux for me. I have tried everythnig to fix the wireless and nothing works. I have a toshiba laptop L675 with a realtek 8188ce wirless card and ubuntu does not even detect it. I also have win 7 on this machine and it works fine so i will get rid of linux and stick with windows. Ubuntu might be better for hacking purposes and it may be a smother system than windows and even more secure but it ain't worth squat if it does not even support a standard piece of hardware. I have seen all kinds of posts all over the web about theses problems and much more. I could tool around with this for years but is it really worth it. It's cool to learn soemthing new but this is just a complete headache and i do not have time to f**k with this. Here's an idea: WRITE AN OS THAT SUPPORTS CURRENT HARDWARE!!! 10.10 UBUNTU is the latest and i does not work with newer computers. If anyone has a good solution please let me know. I do want to reprogram the entire os just to get it to detect a simple wireless card which is pretty much the solutions i have seen on the web. Thanks.

WRITE AN OS THAT SUPPORTS CURRENT HARDWARE!!!The 8188CE is current hardware? This is the first time I've ever heard of it. Did Windows recognize your card without you having to install the driver? Was it recognized when you bought the laptop because you bought the laptop with the operating system pre-installed and paid mightily for it?

If you want to get serious about getting the driver installed, I am ready.

Yes i bought this laptop with win 7 preinstalled. I have had many systems in the past some i boughtt with windows preinstalled, some i built and installed myself. Either way i have never had trouble downloading and installing windows drivers and getting a windows system to function properly. I have to admit i am rather new to linux and it has been a bit frustrating but that is ok. I have been at bthis for weeks trying to get the wirless to work and the only way i have been able to connect is by installing ubuntu in virtual box but it still does not detect wireless it connect to the internet through virtual box network adapter. If you have a solution i am ready to go to work on it. thanks.

Ubuntu is the same way; in many, but not all cases, we have to download and install the driver. Some of the steps are a bit more complex, but I know we can do it. The first step is to ask the computer to list its PCI devices and give us some details. Open Applications > Accessories > Terminal and run:
lspci -nnPost the line that relates to your Realtek and we'll get it done!

06:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device [10ec:8176] (rev 01)We are going to have to download and compile the driver from the manufacturer, Realtek. We are following this process, but I am going to explain it a bit easier for you and the searchers.

https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-nettool/+question/132667

See the very last post.

While I am writing, please start out by opening System > Administration > Synaptic and install linux-headers-generic and build-essential. In order to install, you will need an internet connection.

I'll post more in a few minutes.

which headers do i install there are several listed in synaptic which say linux generic?

chili555
December 9th, 2010, 12:20 AM
Open a terminal and do:
uname -rThe last word on the result is what you want. For example:
$ uname -r
2.6.35-23-genericThen I would install linux-headers-generic. If you have server, install server, etc.

Download the Realtek driver here:

http://www.realtek.com.tw/Downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=21&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true

Be sure to get rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010.

By default, downloads go to a folder called Downloads. Open your home directory and open Downloads. Right-click the .tar.gz and select 'Extract Here.'

Open a terminal and do:


cd /Downloads/rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010
sudo su
make
make install
modprobe r8192ce_pci
exit

Your wireless should be working.

When a new kernel or linux-image is installed by the Update Manager, you will need to rebuild the driver with:


cd /Downloads/rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010
sudo su
make clean
make
make install
modprobe r8192ce_pci
exit

If you encounter an error, stop and post back.

Is Downloads where the file was downloaded? Or Desktop? Or where? Also, it isn't:
cd /Downloads/rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010Instead, it's:
cd Downloads/rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010The leading slash / is not needed here.

If the file you downloaded ended up on your desktop, then it's:

My apologies to chili555 for jumping in here, but I configured a laptop for a friend who also had the RTL8188CE wireless adapter. I installed a PPA to provide wireless support. And it includes DKMS so the module will be recompiled automatically during future linux kernel upgrades.


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lexical/hwe-wireless
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rtl8192ce-dkms

Hope this works for you.

let me ask you is it a big deal when uname -r gives 2.6.32-25-generic, but in synaptic it says i have 2.6.35-25Yes, it is a big deal. It is very possible to have more than one kernel installed on your system. You can interrupt the boot process and see what's referred to the GRUB menu. It will show all the kernels you have installed and allow you to boot into an earlier kernel, either because you are having trouble with a newly installed kernel and want to revert to the earlier one, or because you want to do some development on an earlier kernel and don't want to wreck your working, latest kernel.

uname -r tells you the version of the kernel you are running now. If you installed Ubuntu 10.10, why are you booted into an earlier kernel 2.6.32? In order to compile, you need headers matching your running kernel, that is, 2.6.32-x-whatever.

The linux-headers-generic package takes care of that and installs the matching headers whenever there is an update.

Let's try to solve one issue at a time before we proceed.

When i boot up my pc it gives me 3 linux choices(only one works) and one windows 7. when i installed 10.04 it gave me one. then when i upgraded to 10.10 it gave me another one. then i noticed the other day that i now have three options when i boot up.

I don't know what's going on with sam198923's kernels, but I just want to mention that I installed the PPA package rtl8192ce-dkms on a fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick 64-bit. Looking at the PPA webite,

https://launchpad.net/~lexical/+archive/hwe-wireless/+packages

It appears that there is support for both lucid and maverick. i386 is mentioned but for some reason AMD64 is not. Curious.

Im so lost and confused.So, I assume you are booted into the only one that works, that is, the oldest one. First, let's try to repair the newer ones. Open System > Administration > Synaptic. Search for linux-image-2.6.35. You should have two versions installed, indicated by a little green box. Right-click the first one and select 'Mark for reinstallation.' Click 'Apply' and let it do so. Do the same for the second one. They might be 2.6.35-22 and -23.

Then try to reboot into the latest kernel, 2.6.35-23 and tell me what happens. If there are errors or messages on the screen, jot them down and tell me what they are.

I am going to do my best to help you out of this; I can't guarantee you anything except we will try together and that I will try hard.

When you rebooted, did you get the three kernels as options? Did you try the newest, 2.6.35-23, I assume? Did it fail to boot? Any errors? What were they?

"Just nothing" meaning what? A black screen? A blinking cursor? Blinking lights? Smoke?

Can you try the failsafe mode and watch the boot messages scroll by and see where it stops?

Hi, ok, I got this card to work with the 8192CE drivers provided in this link, however, I have another issue. When I use this card for aircrack-ng it shows 00 power under airodump-ng. Basically the computer can see the wireless and everything else but I can not place it into mode monitor with iwconfig, so I tried to place it into monitor mode in airmon-ng and it placed wlan0 into monitor mode. After that it did nothing, it shows 00 for power and will not show my own station. Not sure why. I'm thinking it has something to do with that its not really the correct drivers for this card, but I'm a bit unsure about this. If anyone can help I'll be very thankful.

I do this "Be sure to get rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010.

By default, downloads go to a folder called Downloads. Open your home directory and open Downloads. Right-click the .tar.gz and select 'Extract Here.'

Open a terminal and do:

Code:
cd /Downloads/rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010
sudo su
make
make install
modprobe r8192ce_pci
exit"
and get this


"/home/sam# modprobe r8192ce_pci

Where did you download the file? To the folder in your home directory called Downloads? Or did it end up on your desktop? Whichever it is, we need to navigate there in the terminal:
cd DownloadsOr else:
cd DesktopIf you right-clicked and extracted the tar.gz file, then you have a folder in there called rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010. Let's change to that directory now:
cd rtlNow press Tab and the remainder of the long name will fill in. Press Enter. Now we are ready to make and install the driver:
sudo su
make
make install
modprobe r8192ce_pci
exitIf there are any errors, post back. I'm here to help.

You need to go to the aircrack-ng web site and look up their list of supported cards to see if yours will work. I think they mainly support Atheros chipsets.

Anyone who is using the RTL8188CE wireless adpater please download the driver from here:

I've used Ubuntu for a few years and found drivers. I'm using Toshiba Satellite C660 which has a realtek 8176.

This seems to be a common problem with Toshiba and if I'd known I'd have bought a different laptop. Anyway what is the general procedure for solving this problem? Is this the correct thread? Is there a howto or some other documentation somewhere? I could find nothing helpful on Toshiba or Realtek sites. I have Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 installed under Wubi.

I'm having no luck with Linux. Ubuntu is giving me nothing but hassle trying to install stuff. -.-

This is one of many problems I am having, no wireless, anyone able to help please? That precompiled PPA thing doesn't work as it always says it can't find the package and I can't get this these drivers to compile. My terminal window is just filled with garbage and modprobe doesn't work.

I'm at my wits end and strongly thinking of re-installing Win7.

EDIT - These are my card's LSPCI numbers. 10ec:8176

Let's track it down! Please do:
sudo updatedb
locate 8192ce | grep .koupdatedb will take a few moments; please be patient.

OK it appears to have jumped back to life again. I guess updatedb did something as Modprobe worked and then a restart of the laptop made wireless kick in. Thanks!

One of my problems struck off the list. ATI next. :)
