View Full Version : [ubuntu] No wireless connection management when not booting into GNOME (XBMC standalone)

December 8th, 2010, 05:46 PM

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 with a self compiled Ralink driver for my Linksys WUSB600Nv2 wireless USB. When booting into GNOME the wireless module is loaded and the Ubuntu build in network connection manager negotiates an IP address with my router.

I've however build this PC as an HTPC and want to boot directly into XBMC through XBMC standalone but when I do that the driver for my wireless adaptor gets loaded but there's no IP address negotiated and I can't get connected. I've verified that through a terminal and as soon as I log out XBMC standalone and into GNOME the network manager connects to my wireless network.

Does anyone know how I can configure Ubuntu to connect to a wireless network without going into/loading GNOME?
