Trying to connect to wireless Linksys wrt160n router in Fedora 16 with latest kernal




I have just installed Fedora 16 with the latest kernel build and am trying to connect with my wireless wrt160n by Linksys. I have tried with a cable between my laptop and the router and it works just fine, but when I disconnect it and attempt wireless, it fails miserable. I've gone into the router's internal menu via 192.168.1.1 and made changes which should direct it correctly, however they don't work. At this point I'm just wandering around seeking any and all help coming my way.

Thanks


Johnny

Is your system detecting the wireless card/dongle? If you don't know, use the command ifconfig and look for wlan0

What wireless unit do you have in your system? If you don't know, use the command lspci -v if it's an internal card, lsusb -v if it's a USB dongle

Is the appropriate kernel module loaded? If you don't know, use the command lsmod and search the list

Is wireless enabled in your router? (From what you've written, you've apparently checked this, but just asking to be sure)

Are you trying to get the connection via dhcp? If so, is your router set up properly for this?

Is NetworkManager running?

The following has worked for me in the past when Network Manager fails to connect but everything else is set up properly:
Code:
 service NetworkManager stop
service network restart
dhclient wlan0

These are the results from the above mentioned commands. I still don't know how to proceed.

Well, your computer obviously recognizes both your ethernet and your wireless devices.

Is the NetworkManager applet displayed in the system tray at the top of your screen? If it is, and you right-click on it, is wireless enabled? If so, and you click on Edit Connections...- then the Wireless tab, , does your wireless router show up on the list? If so, when you click on it then click the Edit button, is Connect automatically checked? Is Available to all users checked? When you click on the Wireless Security tab, is the proper option selected? Is your passphrase properly entered?

I'm using KDE Fedora setup and don't have an application bar at the top. The icons I do have at the bottom don't seem to contain the network manager though. Being a newbie I feel as I'm imposing on the generousity of others to help me here. What do I do next?

When you boot from a live cd (or usb flash drive) with the wired connection unplugged, does the system offer to connect you wirelessly?

I just booted a live Fedora 16 KDE USB stick so that I'd know what I'm writing about. The network manager icon looks like a V with a couple of arcs across it - it's just to the left of the the clock. Left-clicking on it brought up a list of available wireless networks (11 in my case). I selected mine and enabled it.

I found the network manager and it did show the wireless. I chose it and entered all the needed information but it failed also. How do I boot from a live cd without it going through the installation process.

Since your network shows up, the problem would appear to be with the wireless settings on your router, not with NetworkManager. Do other computers connect wirelessly to your router without problems?

If you installed from the live cd, you booted it, and should see the networking icon in the panel at the bottom of the screen. I'm not sure if the DVD will let you run the system from it - I don't know that I've ever installed Fedora from a DVD.

Thanks for such a prompt reply. I have two other laptops connected wirelessly to the internet. It's only this one that I am having difficulty connecting. It's also the only one running Fedora 16 Linux by Red Hat. the others are on Windows 7. It wasn't exactly cut and dried installation with them either, but once I configured the router correctly, it worked fine. That seems to eliminate the router configuration at this point. I did boot on a live iso with Gnome3 desktop and couldn't configure it for wireless from there either.

This is where I'd give up on Fedora 16. First thing I'd try (because I like Fedora) is the latest nightly compose of Fedora 17. Go to this page, click on the Task info link for the version you want, scroll down on the linked page to the output section, download the iso file, create your live cd or USB flash drive, and give it a try. If that didn't work, I'd try another a live CD ofering from another distro.
