I'm a really noob, in this linux world, but i want to try it.

The problem I am having is with my Toshiba Satellite L655-S5117 - Laptop. Windows 7 works fine. My distro flawless except wireless wont work. Can detects a wireless card, but can't use it(connect). Here are the specs.

Welcome to the forums.

Now, the output of



sudo lshw -C networkThanks. Your problem could relate to wireless N. Have you tried disabling it?

Hmm. What release are you using?

You have 2 drivers running at the same time...might be conflicting with eachother possibly. Looks like you need the "iwlwifi" module. Have you tried removing the other?

sudo modprobe -r rt2800usb

Then removing the other and inserting it back in?

sudo modprobe -r iwlwifi

sudo modprobe iwlwifi

then try again to connect using network manager

Is rt2800pci loading because of a declaration in /etc/modules?
gksudo gedit /etc/modulesIf rt2800pci or any other rt2x00s are in there, remove them. Proofread, save and close gedit.

Now in a terminal, do:
sudo modprobe -r iwlwifi
sudo modprobe iwlwifi 11n_disable=1 bt_coex_active=NIf this helps you connect, we can write one file and make it permanent.

I guess i'm running 2 drivers because im using a wireless usb adapter, the only way to connect right now.

Im not sure, maybe is the driver of wireless usb adapter.
I'll restart the laptop to use gedit. I'll post the result 2-3 min.

I suggest you remove the USB and then try these commands:
sudo modprobe -r rt2800usb
sudo modprobe -r iwlwifi
sudo modprobe iwlwifi 11n_disable=1 bt_coex_active=NThen tell us if you are able to connect with the internal device only.

Woow, it works now!. Now I can connect without USB.

Is this is required every reboot?
What are the CONSEQUENCES of disabling 11n?

The consequence is that you won't be able to get N speeds. Hopefully, you are not streaming Blu-Ray over your network to a laptop.

It will not be required on every boot if you write one file:
gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.confA new empty file will open. Type in one line:
options 11n_disable=1 bt_coex_active=NProofread, save and close gedit.

Please use thread tools to mark Solved.

Now you can make it permanent:


echo "options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1 bt_coex_active=N" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf

Edit: Seconds too slow ;-)

Thank you very much, this fixed my Toshiba P855 I just purchased, had to adapt which driver I removed but worked. THANKS
