No wifi or ethernet - Back Box 2.5 dist, w/ Atheros & Realtek network cards
 
I have a Toshiba Satellite S855, w/ Atheros AR8161/8165 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller and a Realtek RTL8723AE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC network adapters. I recently installed the back box distro of linux, and for the life of me cannot figure out why this won't work.

I installed the distro fine and dandy, but when it came to connecting to my network, all hell broke loose. (not really.) But, I plugged in the Cat 5 Ethernet cable, my computer indicated that there was a signal (a LED light under the plug) but linux showed no network. I had the option to manually set up a network, but to no avail. The wifi does not work either. I really do not know where to go from here, and it would be awesome if someone could help me out. Especially if I'm making a total rookie mistake...

never heard of back box distro. anyways please paste this into a terminal and post the results so we can determine if the system is finding your hardware:
Code:

echo uname: && uname -a -m -p && echo lspci: && lspci && echo lsusb: && lsusb && echo lsmod: && lsmod && echo ifconfig: && ifconfig && echo ifconfig -a: && ifconfig -a && echo iwconfig: && iwconfig && echo resolv.conf: && cat /etc/resolv.conf && echo route: && route -n

WyattEarp1 09-05-2012 02:20 PM

I'm leaving work right now, I will post the results when I get home - half hour-ish

WyattEarp1 09-05-2012 04:03 PM

Alright, I plugged in the code you gave me into terminal in linux, and this was the output...

thanks so much for trying to help me

i see this:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/16314...hiba-c850-a965

good luck,

WyattEarp1 09-05-2012 10:00 PM

Alrighty, I found that article before posting here, but the problem is, is I have no internet to use the steps given in that post. I am not quite sure how I would go about installing it offline. I already have the dropbox driver downloaded, and on a flashdrive. I put it onto linux, then I unpack it with tar zxf filename.tar.gz. after that, I am lost.

schneidz 09-06-2012 06:59 AM

hi, without internet you will need to find and install build-essential and linux-headers-2.6.38-14 before you can compile the driver.

just for the shiggles, what do you get when you run:
Code:

which make; which gcc; ll /lib/modules/2.6.38-14*/build/include

WyattEarp1 09-06-2012 06:38 PM

alright, a couple of things to "report"

Downloaded the build-essential and linux-headers-2.6.38-14, put them on a flash drive, then booted into linux..
Moved them to my desktop, from the thumbdrive, and from there, I used
Code:

sudo dpkg -i package.deb
to try to install them.
I had no problems with build-essentials, this is what terminal returned:
Code:

me@My-Laptop:~/Desktop$ sudo dpkg -i build-essential_11.3ubuntu1_i386.deb
[sudo] password for me:
dpkg: warning: downgrading build-essential from 11.5ubuntu1 to 11.3ubuntu1.
(Reading database ... 112316 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace build-essential 11.5ubuntu1 (using build-essential_11.3ubuntu1_i386.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement build-essential ...
Setting up build-essential (11.3ubuntu1) ...

Okay, fine and dandy so far,
But here is what I get when I use the same command for headers:
Code:

me@My-Laptop:~/Desktop$ sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-ibm-2.6.38-14-generic_2.6.38-14.10_i386.deb
dpkg: error processing linux-headers-ibm-2.6.38-14-generic_2.6.38-14.10_i386.deb (--install):
 cannot access archive: No such file or directory
Errors were encountered while processing:
 linux-headers-ibm-2.6.38-14-generic_2.6.38-14.10_i386.deb

Not sure where to go from here..

I also plugged in the code that you wanted me to, for shiggles ;)
Code:

which make; which gcc; ll /lib/modules/2.6.38-14*/build/include
That one returned this:
Code:

*/build/include
/usr/bin/make
/usr/bin/gcc
ls: cannot access /lib/modules/2.6.38-14*/build/include: No such file or directory


schneidz 09-06-2012 08:46 PM

seems like you didnt need to install build-essential (seems like you downgraded -- shouldve ran the which commands first to say if they were already found).

maybe this kernel-headers will work:
http://mirror.pnl.gov/ubuntu//pool/m...ucid1_i386.deb

WyattEarp1 09-07-2012 12:11 PM

Whoops, sorry about that..

I tried dpkg -i on that .deb, and this is what it returned:

Code:

schneidz 09-07-2012 12:41 PM

try installing this one first:
http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/po...-14.58_all.deb

WyattEarp1 09-07-2012 02:55 PM

okay, finally making some progress..
Code:

me@My-Laptop:~$ cd Desktop

me@My-Laptop:~/Desktop$ sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-2.6.38-14_2.6.38-14.58_all.deb
[sudo] password for me:

then I installed the generic -

good thing you are patient; this is starting to become an ordeal.
i think...
Code:

sudo make install
...will work.

usually, only the root user is able to make system wide changes (like deleting/ overwriting drivers).

by the time you get it working you will be a master at all this stuff ;) .

Thank YOU for being patient, I would have never been able to do this on my own.

Hey, I'm fine with that! :D
