Wireless device suddenly not working


Yet more proof than Linux hates me
I have an fujitsu-siemens laptop with Kubuntu Dapper installed dual booting with windows XP. I've had it set up for a while now and had no problems. Recently I configured the wireless networking to have a fixed IP address and I'm fairly sure I remember it working like that (it was quite late at night, memory a little fuzzy). I booted into windows today because my torrents seem to run faster there, and I was using the wired network (also setup to fixed IP, for port forwarding). I rebooted to Linux and forgot to turn the wireless switch on the front of my laptop back on. Of course Linux didn't detect the wireless device, but when i remembered and switched it on it still didn't recognise! I've tried rebooting, tried undoing the fixed IP, all the basics but still it can't quite recognise a wireless device.

I can't ping or connect to my router (192.168.1.1), KNetwork Manager doesn't show any wireless devices / networks, but the network setup in system settings does show both the wired and wireless network devices (eth0 eth1). IFConfig also shows both devices (plus the loopback), but trying to ping anything returns unknown host.


The network seems to function correctly with a direct cable connection, it's just the wireless that is refusing to work.

ifconfig:

Eth0 is the wired device, and Eth1 is the wireless.

Anyone have any suggestions? please?
I've been hoping to move to Linux on a more permenant basis, but setbacks like this are...offputting to say the least.

Sorry about the book, figured the more I provided you with the more likely someone would be able to help!

ok, if you are using ndiswrapper it sounds like when you we're setting up your device you forgot to modprobe ndiswrapper at the end.
And when you restart your system the ndiswrapper module isn't getting loaded.
The command for that is: ndiswrapper -m.

But that's if you're using ndiswrapper. And this is a pretty wild guess just try it out.

Tried that command but no luck (command ndiswrapper not found). I didn't set up the wireless myself, that was all done automagically when I installed Kubuntu.

I've managed to dig out some more bits of info that may or may not be useful. First of all, using the Wifi Manager instead of KNetwork manager it can see the wireless networks but can't seem to connect to any of them.

In console mode I noticed that if I turn the wireless switch off at the front of the laptop nothing overt happens, however if I switch it on again I get the kernel error:
Code:
[17182607.236000] ipw2200: Failed to send SCAN_ABORT: Command timed out.
[17182608.252000] ipw2200: Failed to send CARD_DISABLE: Command timed out.
Another thing that might be of use, an "iwlist eth1 scanning" gives:

How do you connect to a wireless network in console mode? I hade a poke around iwconfig,ifconfig, and iwlist but I couldn't figure out how to do...well, anything!

Well, I'm a noob.... but on my laptop occasionaly I have to enter
"sudo ifdown ath0" ath0 being my wireless connection
"Sudo ifup ath0"

You'll have to forgive me... I'm on xp and I can't pull up any linux box at the moment. We're having a lightning storm and XP is the only expendable system in the house!

I tried "sudo ifconfig eth1 down"/"sudo ifconfig eth1 up" and that didn't work. Is that the same as what you posted?
I'll boot back into Linux in a min and give it a go.

I seem to be having problems connecting via wired connection now too :-/

EDIT: No luck there, got an error saying something like the device isn't configured :-/ :-(
Double-EDIT: Can a mod move this to the wireless forum please?

These are my network devices from lspci:
[code]0000:01:05.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8169 Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10)
0000:01:03.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG (rev 05)[code]

In an interesting twist I seem to have wired networking under linux again (without actually changing anything) but now my windows doesn't recognise when the cable is in for wired network!!
I think I'm just going to go find some whisky and drink myself into not caring now!

Well, Linux and Windows are completely separate so there is no way network settings of one could affect the other. Are you sure you did not upgrade your kernel? Have you tried unplugging wired network cable in linux and then booting? I'm saying that because I have the same wireless adapter as yours and whenever I install a new version of the driver, it first recognizes the interface as eth1. When you reboot, it becomes eth0.

They always seem to be the same way around.
Just found out something interesting tho, I'm not sure this has happened before. I rebooted from windows to linux, and without any network managers (knetworkmanager or wlassistant) running, I found that I had somehow connected to a wireless connection! Starting either of the GUIs still showed that nothing was connected though!
In my process list NetworkManager and NetworkManagerD are both running.

Suggestions? Sledgehammers?

Do you use wpa authentication. You might try monitoring it with "wpa_cli -p /var/run/wpa_supplicant -i eth1"

I had a problem with my desktop and an older laptop not authenticating. The laptop happened to work previously. When I replaced the desktop I tried again setting up wireless. I thought that I was on the internet via my hp laptop, and went to the router to copy the key from the router. It turns out that someone was using my essid but without encryption. I thought I got into my own router and it had reset, because it used the default password. I changed the routers password before realizing that it wasn't my router! After changing the essid value of my router, wpa_supplicant worked!
Make sure that you are set up to use the same channel and your essid matches your router. Since "iwlist scan" returns information on the wireless cells, your device is probably working, and it may be a matter of authentication. Your computer needs to authenticate with your router before it can get an address from dhcp.

Just to check it out on my older laptop, I changed the essid and my new wpa key value in /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan0 and I was back on wireless on that laptop.

I have a pretty unique ESSID ("Hobgoblin") and according to net stumbler in windows there are no others in the area with the same ESSID.

I don't know what's changed but I can now connect to my neighbour's unprotected router, however that's the only one I see under Wireless Assistant and I'm still not seeing anything under KNetworkManager (Not trying to run both at the same time mind).

I don't think that wpa_supplicant is even running. Either that or your system has a different place where wpa_supplicant puts its working config and socket file. Try looking at:
Code:
jschiwal@hpamd64:~> ps -u root | grep wpa
 5867 ?        00:00:00 wpa_supplicant

jschiwal@hpamd64:~> sudo lsof | grep wpa_supplicant
lsof: WARNING: can't stat() cifs file system /mnt/hpmedia/jschiwal
      Output information may be incomplete.
wpa_suppl  5867       root  txt       REG                3,6     289768      76520 /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant
wpa_suppl  5867       root    6u     unix 0xffff81004a113080                 21427 /var/run/wpa_supplicant/wlan0
On my system, wpa_supplicant is started dynamically from a script using the variable values from the /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan0 file. However, on your system it may read /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf. The /etc/wpa_supplicant file may indicate what you should use for the path variable in wpa_cli. Look for the value of ctrl_interface:
Code:
jschiwal@hpamd64:~> sudo cat /var/run/wpa_supplicant-wlan0.conf
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
network={
  scan_ssid=1
  ssid="jes-net"
  key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
  psk=ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff
}
So since my interface is called "wlan0" and my ctrl_interface is /var/run/wpa_supplicant, I would use the command:
sudo wpa_cli -p /var/run/wpa_supplicant -i wlan0

Also note that it is run a root. Also, I hid the true value of the 32 byte psk value in my example.

I generate my psk like this:
Code:
hpamd64:~ # dd if=/dev/random of=~/newkey bs=1 count=32
32+0 records in
32+0 records out
32 bytes (32 B) copied, 0.000929 seconds, 34.4 kB/s
hpamd64:~ # od -t x1 ~/newkey | sed -e '3d' -e 's/^.\{7\}//' -e 's/ //g' | tr -d '\n'; echo
71ec924439f8f31fd4d0881721cc7b998437e3a8aeb29532017f0fe827a8c0de
This generates a new random 32 byte (64 hex digit) key that I copy to a usb stick and use for all of my computers.
I also paste it into my routers setup using the web interface.

----

Make sure that that wireless device is still working. As root, run:
iwlist <interface name> scan

So I would run "iwlist wlan0 scan". This will tell me if the wlan0 device is working. If you don't see any cells listed your device might not be working. If you don't see your routers cell, try power cycling it or adjust your antennae or location a bit. ( doesn't antenna have a strange plural form!! I'm surprised that I spelt it correctly right away, I needed to correct the spelling of surprised before posting. )
