Wireless Internet usb not working


Hi,
My wireless usb from huawei is not working. I have got some steps from:
http://www.glenscott.net/2009/12/01/...-karmic-koala/

The 2nd step is to :
Quote:
2. Go to http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ and download the .deb files for the kernel headers (“all”) and the kernel for your architecture (“amd64″ or “i386″).
I cant find the files in the mentioned link. Kindly guide me. I have ubuntu installed on my i5. Plz guide me in this regard.

Zulfi.

You need to install a package like this: linux-headers-3.9-1-amd64 and a package like this: linux-headers-amd64. You will have to replace the 3.9-1-amd64 with your own specifications. Since you didn't tell us what kernel you're using nor what architecture I can't be more specific than that.

Open a terminal and type this command:
Code:
aptitude search linux-headers
Then post the results and we can tell you which one to choose. I'm guessing you need something like linux-headers-2.6.31-generic.
That's quite an old kernel you're running. What version of Ubuntu are you using?

Hi,
Thanks for your reply and for increasin my knowledge regarding ubuntu.
I got following output:
Code:

~$ aptitude search linux-headers
v   linux-headers                   -                                           
v   linux-headers-2.6               -                                           
i A linux-headers-2.6.31-14         - Header files related to Linux kernel versi
i A linux-headers-2.6.31-14-generic - Linux kernel headers for version 2.6.31 on
i   linux-headers-generic           - Generic Linux kernel headers              
:~$
Plz tell me how you are going to determine files using the above information.

Version is 9.10

Code:
~$ cat /etc/lsb-release
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=9.10
DISTRIB_CODENAME=karmic
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 9.10"
~$
Zulfi.

You need to update your Ubuntu version. 9.10 is surely no longer supported. Try installing the latest version (13.04) and your problems should go away.

since you have a 64-bit cpu you probably should use the 64-bit version. i think the easiest method is to create a live-usb using unetbootin.

Did you use unetbootin or a similar software package to create a bootable usb stick? Simply copying the iso onto the usb stick will not work.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply. Actually i forgot this. However i tried to make a bootable disk using unetbootin. I checked the diskimage option and selected ubuntu (13.04 HMedia) and provided path for my ubuntu iso on my h/d and provided a space of 1MB.It created a bootable disk. Then I conected the bootable disk to the computer on which i have to install ubuntu and choose the bios option to boot from usb. I got unetbootin window which was showing default option. Below this window, it was written:
Quote:
Press [Tab]to edit option
Automatic boot in 10 seconds
However if i press enter key, it restarts the 10 sec timer. Kindly guide me about my mistake.

Zulfi.

I'm not sure I understand. What happens after the 10 seconds timer is up? Does it boot into Ubuntu?

Hi,
After 10s it restarts the counter from 10 and goes back to 0.
I dont remember that i used unetbootin when i installed the version 9 of ubuntu. But i had windows 7 in my machine at that time. Kindly help me.

So you made a bootable DISK with unetbootin?!?! I thought you were trying to make a bootable USB stick. Which one is it? If you're using a disk and not a stick then you don't use unetbootin.
