[SOLVED] Hidden Location of Wireless option MInt 14

Postby erie88 on Sat Feb 02, 2013 2:03 pm

I recently upgrading to Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon. All looks fine except in the newtork panel there is no wifi/wireless option. I checked the Network Settings then clicked the "option" button then it bring up "Editing Wired Connection 1" form. Clicking the "option" button for the second time, bring up "Network Connections" form with 5 tabs :
1. Wired [add] [edit] [delete]
2. Wireless [add] [edit] [delete]
3. Mobile Broadband [add] [edit] [delete]
4. VPN [add] [edit] [delete]
5. DSL [add] [edit] [delete]

Below is the image :

My question is : Why is the wifi option is hidden like this? and how do I add the wifi option? or enable the wifi automatically? like previously in Mint 13.

Do you installed wireless card driver?

Open a terminal and:

Code: Select all
inxi -N


And post here the output.

Your laptop don't have linux driver wireless card installed, so it does not work.

It is a little hard put to work Ralink card; search in google about these; i found something:

It is necessary cable network in your laptop.

Open a terminal and run, one by one, the followings commands; I don't know if it works, I don't have Ralink card, I have Broadcom card (see my signature)

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential dkms patch fakeroot unzip
wget http://media.cdn.ubuntu-de.org/forum/attachments/35/07/3208747-angepasster-2011_0406_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO.zip
unzip 3208747-angepasster-2011_0406_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO.zip
cd angepasster-2011_0406_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO/
sudo make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe -v rt5390sta
sudo depmod -a
sudo update-initramfs -u


Close

Reboot.

That was what I had done before I upgraded Mint Cinnamon from 13 to 14 using the same tutorial from youtube. But I don't notice any improvements after that. And, the wireless option was available in Mint 13.

I have tried reinstalling new driver using this tutorial http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=79227. This is the result in which I really don't understand at all:

I think that LM13 is better than LM 14, because it have some bugs.

I think is better a fresh installation.
LM17 Cinnamon (PC and Notebook) with AMD Catalyst

It is necessary to clean older installations.

In a terminal:

Code: Select all
sudo dkms remove -m Ralink_5390sta -v 2.5.0.3 --all
sudo rm -r /var/lib/dkms/Ralink_5390sta/2.5.0.3


and then,

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential dkms patch fakeroot unzip
wget http://media.cdn.ubuntu-de.org/forum/attachments/35/07/3208747-angepasster-2011_0406_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO.zip
unzip 3208747-angepasster-2011_0406_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO.zip
cd angepasster-2011_0406_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO/
sudo make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe -v rt5390sta
sudo depmod -a
sudo update-initramfs -u

Tried to clean older installations and it give error:

Code: Select all
athlon@athlon:~$ sudo dkms remove -m Ralink_5390sta -v 2.5.0.3 --all
[sudo] password for athlon:
Error! There are no instances of module: Ralink_5390sta
2.5.0.3 located in the DKMS tree.


So searching on Google how to removes driver modules, I followed this tutorial here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Device/Tenda_W311M to remove the previous rt5390 modules.

Open the modules list

Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/modules


and delete "rt53xxsta" from the list. Save and close.

Unload the rt53xxsta module

Code: Select all
sudo modprobe -r rt53xxsta


continue with removing the rt53xx directory folder with

Code: Select all
sudo rm -rf /path/to/directory/



I don't know if I'm allowed to remove that following folder with "rm -rf" but I did it anyway as normal deleting gave me "access permission denied". Be very carefull.

Reboot...

I also tried checking the /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state.

Stop the network manager :
Code: Select all
sudo stop network-manager

Code: Select all
sudo gedit /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state

Code: Select all
[main]
NetworkingEnabled=true
WirelessEnabled=true
WWANEnabled=true


I found that my "wirelessEnabled=false" so I changed it to "true". And start it again once done.. Or reboot

and then reinstalling the new driver by following the command line jungle_boy has posted. Yes, it works now. The wireless option is now available. really big thank you, Jungle_boy.

When everything is working fine, no need to update anything...

Using mintupdate, don't update level3, because LM developers assume that works, but they are not tested and does not always work, sometimes breaks the system.

which one do you suggest or at least more safer when updating "via synaptic" or "via update manager"? or those two are the same? I don't want to have re-install wireless modules everytime I update something especially like kernels and such.

I think that mintupdate is better than synaptic because you can mark only level 1 and level 2 to update, unmark level3.
