Hi people

After some failed attempts to configure my wireless network a few months ago, I'm back with this.

This is mi actual configuration:

System and kernel: uname -a

A dmesg | tail outputs the same result as before

All the test are with net.eth0 down.

I have no clue at all and I can't find anything useful to help me solve this, so I hope somebody here can point me in the right direction.

Also, I'll appreciate if you can explain which parts are working and which ones are not; I mean, for instance, I know that the card communicates with the router because I can see that from the router control panel, but I don't know why I can't get an ip, or what the error messages mean. If we can pinpoint the problem, It will be great, not just because I will have wireless in this laptop, but also because I will get a little bit more information; not to mention that I will change the message title to something more specific and useful.

Thanks in advance.

Bye

suggest make the following edits to menuconfig and recompile recopy kernel: (presuming rtl8180 is almost but not quite good enough driver)
Code:
[*] Networking support --->
   [*] Wireless --->
      [*] Wireless extensions
Device drivers --->
[*] Network device support  ---> 
   [*]   Wireless LAN  --->
      < >   Realtek 8180/8185 PCI support
      < >   Ralink driver support  --->
[*] Staging drivers  --->
    [ ] Exclude Staging drivers from being built
       <M> RealTek RTL8187SE Wireless LAN NIC driver


possible extra required actions:
accept a license
download firmware

then suggest clear persistent net rules and reboot

Hi

Well, I've made the change DONAHUE recommended, which was to take out the modules for the ralink usb. The rest already was configured the way you mentioned.

The results are the same.

About the possible extra requires steps, which driver you think I have to download and which license to accept?. I can only assume the one from Realtek and combine it with ndiswrapper, but the driver in kernel is supposed to work. right?

Well, anything else, I'll be checking this message.

Thanks again.

Bye

bothered by "driver in use: r8180".
edit /etc/conf.d/rc to add RC_VERBOSE="yes" , will add to the info provided when starting and stopping interfaces
Code:
/etc/init.d/net.wlan0 stop
modprobe -r r8180
modprobe -r r8187se
modprobe r8187se
/etc/init.d/net.wlan0 restart

Is wpa_gui available?
Have you control of the router so you can try with no protection or wep?

Hi again.

Well, as i mentioned, i made the changes of the modules for the ralink usb, but i didn't pasted an lsmod output to make it clear, so this is the current lsmod:

lsmod
Code:

vboxdrv              1736015  0
fglrx                2486686  36
snd_hda_codec_realtek   254342  1
snd_hda_intel          18496  0
snd_hda_codec          57681  2 snd_hda_codec_realtek,snd_hda_intel
r8187se               129282  0
snd_hwdep               5492  1 snd_hda_codec


RC is already in verbose, since the beginning.

Changed the configuration in the router as suggested so the security mode is none, at least during the tests, but i'll set it back as it was before since more people will connect in a few hours.

About the 8180 message, this is what dmesg reports:

Also changed the /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf according, so it only has the ssid and key_mgmt=none.

About wpa_gui, yes it is available, using it, I can see that i get the ip address I set in /etc/conf.d/net, as it is shown in ifconfig. But I don't get any response from pings, not even the router.

If I use dhcp in /etc/conf.d/net, the ip I get is 169.254.42.193, which doesn't work at all.

Thanks. I'll keep an eye on the message.

:)

Bye

just for fun:
boot a sysresccd to the xfce GUI and run NetworkManager in the terminal.
if successful a comparison of lspci -k, lsmod, and the networking sections of the kernel config might help.

BTW, you have been working with just gentoo networking? There is no wicd or network manager or similar programs (or remnants) on board?

Hi

Well basically with the command line, yes, but I also installed wicd. Not much better luck with that, I have to say.

About the SystemRescueCD, I'm downloading now, as soon as I have something to post, I'll do it.

Thanks again.

Bye

when next gentoo is booted, recommend
Code:
emerge --unmerge wicd
rc-update del wicd
(wicd and gentoo networking tend to fratricide)
edit /wtc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant to remove the network entry; for example:
Quote:
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=wheel
update_config=1

start your desktop and wpa_gui,
Is wlan0 in wpa_gui dialog? if so, click Scan
If your network appears in the scan window, double click it,
If a configuration dialog box appears, fill in the PSK, select a priority, click add,
in the original wpa_gui dialog, select your network, click edit, click save (this will write a network entry to wpa_supplicant.conf)

About the wicd, I think i already removed it, but at this point, I'm not sure, so i'll check and report back.

Hi

Yes wicd was still in the system, not started, but in the system, so I removed it.

I made the changes to wpa_supplicat.conf, and used wpa_gui to test.

Still same situation, the card connects to the router, I can see it appear in the logs, but the ip is still 0.0.0.0.

I made again some more tests, changing from wpa2 to wpa, to none, and similar; at the end, I returned to the wpa2 that I originally had, this is the resultant wpa_supplicant.conf.

/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
Code:

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=wheel
update_config=1

network={
   ssid="patito"
   psk="my_password_in_ascii"
   proto=RSN
   key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
   pairwise=TKIP
   auth_alg=OPEN
   priority=10
}


Important changes from the original one i pasted are the proto, which I pasted a wrong version, although it was commented and the auth_alg=OPEN, which I haven't seen before, what it means?, That it can use TKIP, CCMP or whatever the system thinks it's right? or the encryption system, like AES?.

I'm starting to think that the problem is in the router, something I have configured wrong, I'll check that again.

Bye.

did you run NetworkManager from the terminal in the syresccd XFCE GUI? Did it connect?

For WPA/WPA2 encryption you need
auth_alg=OPEN


For static WEP encryption you might need
auth_alg=SHARED

Hi

Sorry for the delay in my answer, but yesterday I wasn't feeling very well.

About the NetworkManager, the system started it, so I didn't do anything special with it.

Here are some data from the execution of the SystemRescueCD

About the NetworkManager, the system started it, so I didn't do anything special with it.
Does this mean that you were able to configure and connect to the internet with wireless? If so we know that gentoo and your NIC are both good; the problem is us.
if so, boot the sysresccd, connect with NetworkManager, mount the gentoo partitions, run:
Code:
emerge wgetpaste
zcat /proc/config.gz | wgetpaste -s ca
wgetpaste - s ca /mnt/gentoo/usr/src/linux/.config
wgetpaste /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/etc/conf.d/net
post the url's returned

Hi

No, the system started NetworkManager, but i couldn't use wireless, eth0 was the one working, even when I stopped manually eth0, wlan0 still didn't work. But I am a complete noob with networkmanager, so if you can suggest me any command, procedure, test or something to try the connection I'll do it.

The ifconfig that I pasted from the SystemRescueCD shows that i got connection just using eth0, but not wlan0.

I'm going to check from my side if there is anything I can try with that.

Thanks again. :)

Bye

Strangely, the sysresccd/network manager combination worked for me last week; this week it does not. Thus I can't count on that combination to eliminate or confirm the problem area.
When you get a chance, you might see if an ubuntu livecd will give you wireless, a working linux wireless would tell us that you do not have an unsupported variant rtl8187se.
Boot your install to the gui:
Code:
emerge wgetpaste ifplugd
wgetpaste - s ca /usr/src/linux/.config
wgetpaste /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/etc/conf.d/net
/etc/init.d/net.eth0 stop
/etc/init.d/net.wlan0 restart >> wlan0restart
wpa_gui

should show wlan0 as interface and your ssid as network. click connect. If still failing
Code:
/etc/init.d/net.eth0 restart
dmesg | tail -n 120 | wgetpaste
wgetpaste wlan0restart

Hi

Ubuntu didn't even detected my wired network.

I'm halfway now of downloading knoppix, so I'll report as soon as that one is ready.

Bye

Hi

I been playing with knoppix with no luck, so I went back to ubuntu an started playing a bit more with nmcli, the device appeared in the list, but i could not make a connection. But I may have been doing something wrong because I never got any kind of error message.

A side comment. The hard disk in my normal desktop died, so I can't make tests there, I mention this because I was thinking about trying to install and use a usb wireless device I have and see if that one works, if that one works, then I'll try to install it in this laptop and if that didn't work, then the problem will be with the laptop, but as I said, I can't do that now until I have a new disk an a system. Also, that device also didn't work here, is the lynksys I mentioned early in this post.

Well, I'll keep thinking and testing, I can't believe that wireless is so hard in Linux, or that I'm so dumb to make it work.

Bye

Hi

I just forgot to mention at the beginning of this thread that the card works perfectly in windows, so the card works, the problem is just here in linux.

:)

Bye
