    Re: Wireless "device not ready"

    In many of these cases, it may be a simple matter of installing the proprietary drivers in Administration -> Hardware drivers... should take three minutes...

    Hope that helps.

    Hi there. I installed the proprietary drivers and that hasn't resolved the problem. Can anyone else comment?

    Smile Re: Wireless "device not ready"

    using 'ifconfg'or 'iwconfig' find the name of wi-fi...
    e.g., mine is 'eth1'

    then....

    sudo ifconfig eth1 up

    execute the above command in 'terminal'.. this solved my 'device not ready problem'..
    Is it useful?

    Same problem. Dell inspiron. Intel wimax card.

    I think it's the drivers.

    For the Broadcom BCM4318 chipset for the first post, and probably most of the others in this thread (if broadcom wireless), see this page

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...Driver/bcm43xx

    Particularly the 'Installing BCM43xx drivers' section halfway down.

    WaHOO!

    Dell StudioXPS 64bit and this worked for me! Ran:

    Code:
    ~$ sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter
    per the page given. Once completed I can use the soft-button to turn WiFi on and off without issue or reboot. No more "device not ready"!

    Big Thanks

    Re: Wireless "device not ready"

    I had a similar problem on my mac mini. After tailing /var/log/syslog I discovered this


    ctrl_iface exists and seems to be in use - cannot override it
    Oct 1 14:45:14 geviousMini wpa_supplicant[1060]: Delete '/var/run/wpa_supplicant/wlan0' manually if it is not used anymore
    Oct 1 14:45:14 geviousMini wpa_supplicant[1060]: Failed to initialize control interface '/var/run/wpa_supplicant'.#012You may have another wpa_supplicant process already running or the file was#012left by an unclean termination of wpa_supplicant in which case you will need#012to manually remove this file before starting wpa_supplicant again.


    after removing /var/run/wpa_supplicant/wlan0 and restarting my wireless card worked.

    Re: Wireless "device not ready"

    Same problem here!
    been at it for hours, tried every procedure on the forum
    now getting "device not ready"

    seriously considering ditching 11.10 and going back to 10.04....never been so difficult. At least before when the kernel updated every time, one could just recompile . not this time it seems.....

    someone please help!

    I got a Ralink RT5390 wireless on HP G62 laptop...



    (wish there were smilies for tearing hair out)
