Driver Wireless for Fujitsu Siemens V5535

Postby federicosistema on Wed Mar 06, 2013 6:51 am

Goog morning,

I have a notebook Fujitsu Siemens V5535. I have installed here a Linux Mint 13 Maya but I cannot use wifi because the drivers for this are not installed.
I have tryed to install many drivers that I have found in many blogs and forums but the results are not good.
Can you help me?

Thank You very much

Please open Terminal from the menu, type this and press Enter:
Code: Select all
inxi -N

It'll show what network adapter the computer has - please post that output here.

Ok, I have used your instructions.

Terminal says:

Network: Card-1: Atheros AR242x / AR542x Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express)
Card-2: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 191 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter driver: sis190

Did you perhaps blacklist the ath5k driver somewhere? Please remove that blacklist, if there is one. Also, did you perhaps try to install madwifi? Please remove it.

Please remove the drivers you tried to install, and remove the blacklists you put in there. When you're back at the original situation, please reboot and run these commands, and post the output:
Code: Select all
inxi -Gx
rfkill list

madwifi is an old driver that maybe could get the device working on Linux in the past, but has been superseded by better drivers.

Oops, that was the output for graphics instead of for network, I meant inxi -N. And could you also post the output of rfkill list?

Ok, but has anything changed after running that? Does inxi -N output show "driver ath5k" behind the wireless card now, and does the network icon show anything when clicking it?

modprobe doesn't output anything when the operation went fine.

If I run your comand on Terminal, don't happen anything.
I have the possibility to create a new connection wifi but notebook doesn't view new connections wifi.

Could you run these commands (after running sudo modprobe ath5k, in case you had shut down your computer since you previously ran that command):
Code: Select all
iwconfig
dmesg | grep ath
rfkill list

Ok, that looks much better, we can make this change permanent:
Code: Select all
gksudo gedit /etc/modules
(replace gedit with pluma on Mate editions)

In that text file please put ath5k on a new line.

Do you see any networks when clicking the network icon now?

Does it report your network when running sudo iwlist scan?
