shonen Posted February 26, 2009 Share Posted February 26, 2009 Hey guys can someone please help a linux n00b before I crack a shit fit. I have ubuntu 8.4 installed on my Dell insperion 1525 but have a few issues with the ubuntu wireless 1395 802.11g Mini card not working (I believe its broadcom) After my initial install of ubuntu I download all of the 260+ updates required and also consulted the hardware drivers option under administrator and enabled the Proprietary Drivers for Broadcom STA wireless driver I get the following. 1: Wireless card seems to be working seeing as I can scan for networks however when I try to set the WPA2 key in the networking manager it always resets it back to the WPA 2 type. 2: When I do an ifconfig my wifi card shows up as eth1 (I always thought wireless was Wlan or wifi something or other). 3: It can not associate with my access point eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:23:ae:16:67:15 inet addr:192.168.1.10 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::223:aeff:fe16:6715/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:1869 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:144 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:1735218 (1.6 MB) TX bytes:13009 (12.7 KB) Interrupt:16 eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:22:5f:67:ee:e9 inet6 addr: fe80::222:5fff:fe67:eee9/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:146 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:1335 TX packets:2094 errors:48 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:28898 (28.2 KB) TX bytes:429891 (419.8 KB) Interrupt:17 Base address:0xc000 eth1:avahi Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:22:5f:67:ee:e9 inet addr:169.254.10.91 Bcast:169.254.255.255 Mask:255.255.0.0 UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 Interrupt:17 Base address:0xc000 If you need any more information feel free to ask and please post the command line in simple terms so I can get my head around it seeing as I am by no means fluent in Linux CLI. Thanks in advanced. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
