Hello,

I am totally new to Pardus and running into problems with wireless and did not find a solution to the problem on the forum.

My wireless PCI Card Ralink makes after configuration in the Network Manager connection without any problem but I have no Internet connection.

Spending now a couple of hours trying to figure it out but without any success.

Hope someone can give me a hint.


Thanks in advance,
Bert

Hello Andreas,

The card is recognized and also showing in the network manager. I configured everthing in the network manager but switched off DHCP because I have a fixed IP-Address.

I filled out:
IP Computer: 192.168.1.178
Mask 255.255.255.0
Gateway 192.168.1.1
and the DNS-Servers from the Internet provider.

I also tried DHCP and disabled WEP encryption.

When I start the computer WLAN is always making a connection but most of the time I have no Internet connection.

My LAN (with cable) connection works perfect with the same configuration, offcourse I used then a different IP-Address (192.168.1.177) and no WEP.

I don't know if it would work if I don't use the Ralink driver what came with Pardus and use the Windows driver with ndiswrapper.

If this would work I have to investigate how I get this Windows driver installed with ndiswrapper.


Regards,
Bert

I gave up on Ralink, it did not work also ndiswrapper gave me the same problems.

Switched to a Realtek card RTL-8185. (Eminent EM4057). It worked out of the box.

The only problem I still have is if I boot the adapter tells me I am connected but I don't have Internet.
When I switch it off in the Network Manager and on it works.

Is there someone out there who experienced the same on boot?


Bert


I found out that if I switch off my wireless connection before reboot it connects correctly when I restart the computer.

If I shutdown the computer with a life wireless connection it will not connect correctly after reboot.

Oké thanks I think this will help me.

I think I could resolve the problem if I could shutdown my wireless connection before shutting down the computer.

I saw the file local.stop but I don't know what I have to write there to shutdown my wireless before shutting down the computer.

If I restart the computer without shutting down wireless it tells me in Dutch verbonden met

If I shutdown my wireless and then restart the computer it tells me in Dutch Verbinden en daarna Verbonden. This way my wireless works after reboot.

Oké I understand.

Could you tell me what I could write in local.stop to shutdown my wireless before shutting down the computer.

It is only an idea and I would try it with local.halt

No luck!

The problem would be also solved if it is possible to disable WLAN on boot.

But I did not find the file what I have to edit to accomplish this.


Huh?

In the meantime I found out that the problem is created when WEP Encryption is enabled.

If I disable WEP then WLAN works fine after booting the computer.
If WEP is enabled I have no WLAN connection after boot.

The suggestion in a link on this thread to write the key in the file local.start did not solve the problem.

Hello Bert,

go to your first post and edit it by "Reference" at the beginning of "Wireless PCI Ralink"

You want me to change the subject in WEP Problems at boot?

No, Bert.  Wink

You should change the subject as [solved] at the beginning of your subject, if it is solved for you.

Here one example.

I understand!
I saw written down solved (I did not write it) and I removed it because the problem is not solved.

I only found out now that the real problem is WEP and it has nothing to do with Ralink anymore.
