Ayuda con mi laptop Toshiba, no detecta wifi en Mint

Postby oscar279 on Wed Sep 19, 2012 12:50 am

Miren he probado distros desde pendrive, cds y dvds. Probe Ubuntu , Linux Mint 13 , Lubuntu y en todos los casos no me reconocen el wifi.
Por comentarios se que sí es compatible mi tarjeta de red inalambrica (Atheros AR9285) . Por tutoriales que he visto el wifi se detecta automaticamente y pense que en Mint sería así. Hasta ahora esa distro es la que mas me ha convencido porque funcionaba todo, salvo el wifi. Actualmente en mi laptop uso windows 7 starter, una version para netbooks.

Los datos de mi compu:

Es una Toshiba Satellite C645 SP4250L

Procesador intel P600 2.00ghz
2gb Ram
500gb memoria en disco duro

Que es lo que puedo hacer , instalar la OS y tratar de resolverlo ahí o mejor no mientras no sepa si mi compu es compatible con Linux???

I work with openSUSE forums
I looked up your device in our HCL
http://en.opensuse.org/HCL:Network_%28W ... 29#Atheros

I'm kind of surprised it's not working in mint live session

Yep , its not working on OpenSUSE either, i just check i burned a cd an boot it from there. Do u think that i have to download the software of the atheros card anda execute it on Mint, or any distribution?? I have it someone told me to download it .Would thatsolve my problem?? And if it does , do u know the step by step way to do it , i never installed something on Linux. I checked in youtube, forums, and ask Linux lovers trying to get the answert but i get nothing , its such a pitty Linux Mint recognized everything in my laptop , wireless internet is the only problem. I guess i keep searching or wait for a new release of my distros candidates.

When you boot the Mint DVD
Go to the Menu, where the program launchers are
Go to All applications
find additional drivers and (assuming you have a wired connection) let it run and see if it suggests anything for the wireless.
You can install it, even in a live session

In the mean time, I'll make some enquiries about your device.

Here is what I find.

Your device should work: see here:
http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drive ... d_chipsets

But I see info such as this:
http://linuxplained.com/how-to-fix-athe ... untu-1104/
Which may or may not apply to you

It is possible to change your built in wireless, but you would need to be sure to buy one that is more friendly.
Or (A much cheaper solution)
I have purchased a USB wireless such as this model: Tenda Wireless-N150 USB Adapter (You should find them on ebay)
That will plugin and just work
You need to blacklist the ath9k

mint@mint ~ $ # iwlist ath0 scan
mint@mint ~ $ iwlist ath0 scan
ath0 Interface doesn't support scanning.

This means that mint is not detecting my card??

This does suggest it is seeing a AP called 'lucia'
Is that your AP

yes that is the name of my accsess point , in my country we usually put names of people to it. What it seems is like the distro recognizes my card riight?? but there is like no connection to my router , i tried mint 12 today and it was the same thing. Do u know something about ndiswrapper ?? i read that could help but i dont know it seems like nothing works when im booting on a cd/dvd , should i install and try things or you dont recommned that??

You DON'T need ndiswrapper!

Is your wired connection working OK?

What is it you say you downloaded from Atheros?

ok im going to install that thing and then i copy the results of the command you are posting.

My wired connection is perfectly fine , and my wifi too. Now im on Windows ands its ok, when i boot any distro the problem of the wifi appears. I thought it will be easy cause i alwasy see in the tutorials that laptops connects to wifi easily without any problems.

I download the software of the wifi card i guess, look here it is: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais ... 1073768663

My model is the toshiba satellite C645 SP4250L .

Select wifi devices and it will appear the file of my atheros AR9285 wireless card , its a 24 mb file .

Well im going to try what you said later cause im not at home and i need wired connection, thanks for everything
