Debian Wireless network doesn't work after upgrade


I just installed Debian on a spare partiton which already boots Vector Linux with no problems. The wireless network didn't work at first and I was confused by the fact that iwconfig didn't show my wireless dongle as wlan0 and instead showed eth1. After taking it out and putting it back in, I concluded that they were the same but I'm still suspicious, it's never been anything but wlan0 before.

I don't have a lot of experience setting up networks manually but I had a working /etc/network/interfaces file on an almost identical computer and after adjusting it for eth0 I think I got it working, though I'm sure it didn't work at first. I upgraded to testing and rebooted, but then the wireless network stopped working again, repeadtedly saying:

DHCPDISCOVER on eth1 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 8

. I can't remember exactly what I did the first time and checking bash history reveals that the last thing I did was to edit /etc/network/interfaces. I'm not sure whether it's because something changed after the upgrade or because I haven't done something after the reboot that I did last time.

Dmesg says eth1: no IPv6 routers present.

To test the network I'm doing /etc/init.d/networking restart.

Can anyone help?

what is the device lspci -n or lspci post it.

Dmesg says eth1: no IPv6 routers present has nothing to do with not working
if you upgraded and you are using a newer kernel . Where you using a ndiswraper module if so reinstall the ndiswraper module and set up you ndiswrapper. if you were using a module (driver) that requierd firmware like a bradcom chip you will need to upgrade to newer firmware to use it. but if you do not know the device chip name no one can help you.

The device is a USB wireless dongle and so I don't think lspci would show it. Here's the output of lspci in case I'm wrong.

Code:

01:0c.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82540EM Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 02)
I believe that lsusb would be more useful. The relevent line is:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 6891:a727 3Com 3CRUSB10075


In fact I'm using the zd1211-firmware and so upgrading that sounds like a likely possibility. I've already tried re-installing it though and the version I installed is the same as the one currently in Lenny. COuld there be some other one to install now?

Thanks

was there a kernel upgrade. if so we need the dmesg out put to see what the kernel is doing with it.

I don't know if there was a kernel upgrade, is there an easy way to tell?
The dmesg output has changed considerably since the upgrade due to things like trying the wireless network, but in case that doesn't matter, I've recorded it anyway.

ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready
Modprobe zd1211 just says module not found, though modprobe zd1211rw sems to run fine. It doesn't help the situation though.

I've noticed thatwhen I first boot up, the errors in dmesg after I restart the networking scripts all say:

ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth1: link is not ready

whereas after I try iwconfig eth1 essid [my essid] key [my key] they say:

eth1: no IPv6 routers present

I don't know if this is relevent.

I also noticed that when I do lsusb on Debian as opposed to Vector, it doesn't show Bus 001 Device 003: ID 6891:a727 3Com 3CRUSB10075 anywhere and that port just looks like an empty one. I have a vague memory of this happening the first time I ever installed Debian but I can't remember if or how I fixed it.

Thanks for the help.

this means that your devices is loaded and it is working but it is not recieving could you do a dhcpcd or dhcp and see what the dmesg out put is.

eth1: no IPv6 routers present
means just that there is not a router or a ipv6 router that is sending ipv6 transmission. looks to me everything is working you need to configure the card. or net work. and Why is it not ready because it has not received after sending. so do a lsmod and see if the zd1211rw module is loaded. as you know it takes two thing to make a wifi card to work it is a radio and a ether card. built into one device. real problem is make sure you use the network manager eth1 is perfectly ok. eth0 is you net card and eth1 is your usbnet device. slackware did that also with the 2.6.25 kernel and scripts. it is just a script that gives it a name and links it to a com port.
then do a ifconfig eth1 up then type iwconfig and push enter it will then show if your device is up.

I've got it working now. It seems that the problem was actually an improper installation of wireless-tools. Apparently I didn't have all of the dependencies and so I took it to a wired network and installed them with aptitude. I hadn't had an error message about the dependencies for some reason.

Thanks for the help
