Network disabled (Solved)
« on: December 01, 2015, 03:23:11 am »
Hi!

I use Peppermint 6 32bit on my old EEEPC and it worked fine until i disabled network by mistake. Now it works only by cable but I can't see nor connect to any wireless connection. How can I do?

Thanks!

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
rfkill list
?

Hi Shamgar, how's it going?  When you post an output to the forum.  Could you please remember to encapsulate it with either the, # Insert Code function or the, Sp Spoiler function if it very long.  This preserves the original format of the output and makes it easier for future visitors to relate to.  These functions are found above the,  :-[ Embarrassed and  :'( Cry emoticon respectively in the forum editor.  I've done this for you this time - many thanks  ;).

sudo rfkill unblock all

@AndyInmokum

Thanks for your help :)

@PCNetSpec

I did that command, now if I do "rfkill list" it shows:

Code: [Select]
0: eeepc-wlan: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
1: eeepc-bluetooth: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
2: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
3: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

Despite of this, Wi-Fi doesn't work. If I click to the connection icon in the status bar I see "disconnected" under name of the wirless card

Try deleting the wireless connection in network manager, then recreating it.

If that doesn't work, post the output from:
Code: [Select]
lsmod

I'm seeing no wireless hardware :-\

Are you sure wireless inst disable by a hardware switch, or maybe in the BIOS ?

and can you post the contents of:
Code: [Select]
gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

I noticed a strange thing: in BIOS network device was set to "disabled", so I switched it to "enabled" then I do "Save & Exit", but when Peppermint boot some error messages appeared on the screen, then the OS starts but wi-fi doesn't work.

Then when I reboot the network device option in BIOS is set again to "disabled"

Code: [Select]
# PCI device 0x1969:0x1026 (ATL1E)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:23:54:72:87:ee", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth0"

I can't see how Peppermint could disable the wireless adapter in the BIOS :-\ .. so I'm thinking the internal wireless card has either died or has a bad connection, so the BIOS can't see it as present so lists it as disabled.

So just to check if it's the hardware itself, and nothing to do with Peppermint .. can you re-enable the wireless in the BIOS and save/exit, then without booting Peppermint immediately re-enter the BIOS and see if it's listed as disabled again.

After doing that, can you boot Peppermint and run:
Code: [Select]
dmesg > ~/Desktop/dmesg.txt
you'll then find a file on your desktop called "dmesg.txt" .. can you find somewhere to host that file online, and post a link to it.

Also post any output from:
Code: [Select]
lspci -vnn | grep 1814



[EDIT]

I should also mention this .. I have a few Acer Aspire One netbooks, and occasionally (usually if I accidentally hit the physical switch on the front to disable the network adapter) the network adapter will "disappear" from the system.
The only way to re-enable it is to turn off the netbook, remove the power lead, remove the battery (so there's now NO power the netbook at all), then press the power button (to discharge any power remaining in the motherboard capacitors), then to add back the battery and power lead, then turn on the netbook .. and the wireless adapter magically re-appears :)

Worth a shot......

As you said I enabled wirless card in BIOS, i rebooted then I came back to BIOS and wireless card was still on "enabled". I also tried to boot Windows 7 and wireless adapter correctly works, but when I boot Peppermint it's always disconnected. So it's not a hardware problem  :'(

I also tried to remove battery, but it's the same

I tried to launch the command you told me but it says that file or directory doesn't exist

It's good that it's not hardware .. at least that means it's fixable .. though I'm still baffled how an OS can change a BIOS setting  :-\

Erm, the above TWO command SHOULD work .. try again copy/pasting the commands (one at a time).

and if they error, post back the EXACT output, and which command caused that output.



I'm also confused as to what this is
