My WiFi card stop working?


I am a newbie to Linux and trying to learn.

I have a Axentra Net-Box H70 and yesterday my WiFi card stop working.

Is there a way I can see if the card is bad or something wrong with Linux? Here is what I am getting on the reports:

I put in RED the things that I think might have something to do with it. Any input would be a BIG help.

When you say that the card "stopped working", does that mean that you simply lost the wireless connection?

Things to try:
lspci to see what hardware you have
dmesg to see if the card is being detected properly (and tell you the device ID)

ifconfig to see what devices are up and running (wireless is often wlan0, but could be eth0 or eth1)

ifconfig wlan0 up
to start the interface if it is not already running (substitute correct ID if necessary)

iwlist wlan0 scan to see if the wireless can see any access points ( " " )

The only thing that worked was dmesg, and this is what came from it:

Loaded prism54 driver, version 1.0.2.2
eth2: prism54 driver detected card model: XG-900/GW-DS54G
eth0: link up, 100Mbps, half-duplex, lpa 0x40A1
eth0: Promiscuous mode enabled.
device eth0 entered promiscuous mode
br0: port 1(eth0) entering learning state
br0: port 1(eth0) entering forwarding state
br0: topology change detected, propagating

What is: device eth0 left promiscuous state? It says that twice. Axentra does not support their system anymore. I don't know enough yet, I even bought a another WIFI card. it did not work.

Help!

ifconfig does not work?? Run "ifconfig -a" and post the results.

What is Axentra? Is it a computer or is it the wifi card?

What is the new card you bought? Did you install a driver for it?

Here is the CNET review on Axentra, I hope this gives you an idea of what it is

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/axe...-31132428.html

[root@axentraserver /]# ifconfig -a
bash: ifconfig: command not found

This is what I get?

I have tried all the little stuff I do know.

Thanks for your help

promiscuous mode = sniff mode

or

promiscuous mode = packet spying mode

Promiscuous mode is used for tcpdump or wireshark to gather information about packets being transfered on the network.

Depending on the module it is either on or off by default. Use ifconfig to turn it off. The utility ifconfig is found in /sbin or /usr/sbin, so type the full path to it. Use whereis ifconfig if you do not know where it is located.

I suggest check /var/log/messages.

Some possible reasons why your wireless NIC went down.
* Firmware that is stored on the hard drive is corrupted
* virtual bridge went down
* virtual routing is not correct
* a data glitch
* gremelins

On some systems, you might need to use /sbin/ifconfig or use "su -" to take on the root user environment.

Thanks everybody! I am so new at this

I just re-installed the Axentra system and it corrected the problem. I did lose all my data, but at least now I can do what I want.

I will be adding my other machine that has Ubuntu on it. I am going to see it the two machines can play nice together.

I added my extra Hawkings wireless card to the Ubuntu machine and will try to build a WiFi Hot spot with it.

Beside my Axentra server taking a dump, I am having fun learning Linux. That is why I put the Ubuntu machine together, I hope to learn and try new things on that machine.

Thanks to everyone, I am learning alot just ready the threads here!

Karl
