PostPosted: Mon Jul 05, 2010 6:58 pm    Post subject: ifplugd won't start wireless after kernel upg 2.6.29->2.6 Reply with quote

I just upgraded my kernel to 2.6.33-gentoo-r2 from 2.6.29-gentoo-r5. I am using the iwl3945 driver.

Got everything working except for some reason my wireless has broken. My kernel options surrounding wireless are all the same, and there are no errors, I simply get a message during boot, starting ifplugd on wlan0, then...backgrounding. I've tried starting and stopping the interface manually but it doesn't do anything.

When I run ifplugstatus under my new kernel I get:

Code:
lo: link beat detected
eth0: unplugged
wlan0: unplugged


Under my old (working) kernel I get:

Code:
lo: link beat detected
eth0: unplugged
wmaster0: link beat detected
wlan0: link beat detected


I've found this thread:

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-506126-start-0.html

But it didn't seem applicable because in my case (unlike that thread) restarting the interface manually doesn't fix it. UberLord said "Don't use ifplugd with wireless" but I don't know how not to...it starts automatically. I had originally set up ifplugd because of ethernet, I don't want to use it with wireless. But I don't have any configuration files for ifplugd, and it's not even in any of my runlevels so I have no idea where it's starting from and how to configure it.

Any idea what's wrong here and how I could fix this? Thanks in advance.

Have you tried sys-apps/netplug? It may work better.

Thanks, that documentation didn't solve the problem but it pointed me to some info that partially solved it. I added:

Code:
modules_wlan0=( "!plug" )


to my /etc/conf.d/net, and now the wireless interface wlan0 "starts". However, it doesn't behave like wireless should, it's behaving more like an ethernet interface (trying DHCP before connecting to an access point):

Code:
 * Caching service dependencies ...                                                           [ ok ]
 * Stopping wlan0
 *   Bringing down wlan0
 *     Stopping ifplugd on wlan0 ...                                                          [ ok ]
 *     Shutting down wlan0 ...                                                                [ ok ]
 * Starting wlan0
 *   Configuration not set for wlan0 - assuming DHCP
 *   Bringing up wlan0
 *     dhcp
 *       Running dhcpcd ...
wlan0: dhcpcd 4.0.15 starting
wlan0: waiting for carrier


Of course, this times out (since it didn't actually do anything it was supposed to with the wireless stuff). I tried typing in stuff manually and nothing worked. In particular:

Code:
~ # iwlist wlan0 scanning
wlan0     Interface doesn't support scanning.


Under the new kernel, it seems to be getting the hardware all correct. dmesg output:

Code:
iwl3945: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG/BG Network Connection driver for Linux, 2.6.33-gentoo-r2-kds

iwl3945 0000:0c:00.0: loaded firmware version 15.32.2.9


Any ideas? I don't really know how to troubleshoot this...it's not giving any error messages anywhere, it's just not behaving like it should. Oh, and I am using iwconfig (not wpa_supplicant).

Could you post /etc/conf.d/net?

Here's my /etc/conf.d/net
Code:
modules=( "iwconfig" )
modules_wlan0=( "!plug" )

That's it, except for a list of wireless keys and my preferred_aps list.

i seem to have a very related problem, and I don't think it's ifplugd related..
I did an upgrade from 2.6.32 to 2.6.34.

I have an iwl4965 and my interface also does not support scanning anymore.
in fact, iwconfig wlan0 tells me my card does not have wireless extensions:

Code:
blackknight ~ # iwconfig wlan0
wlan0      no wireless extensions.


My kernel config also seems to have all the necessary options.
This post
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-820798-start-0.html
seems to deal with a very similar problem, but my config options are right it seems.

here's a diff between those two configs.

I think it's somehow related to the features wireless-tools expects but does not find in the kernel...

Any ideas?

cazort, can you please try to see whether your wlan0 still has wireless extensions at all?

Had the same problem, solution was to enable
CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT
in the kernel.

As far as I understand, the wireless extension interface given by CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT is deprecated, but wireless-tools needs it.

Found the solution here.

...which is what my referenced post also said.
And my kernel config also has that option set. This is why I'm wondering if there are any other possible solutions to this problem, as this does not solve it for me.

If that's of any help:

Code:
blackknight ~ # cat /proc/net/wireless
Inter-| sta-|   Quality        |   Discarded packets               | Missed | WE
 face | tus | link level noise |  nwid  crypt   frag  retry   misc | beacon | 22


So I think I do have wireless extensions. However, the line with my interface is missing, although the modules load just fine and so does the firmware.

solved with kernel 2.6.35-r4 for me!
same config used as 2.6.34-r1, no other changes, so it must have been the kernel.
