I am unable to turn on my wireless card (a Multiport W200 from Compaq) in Fedora 7. Normally, I would press Fn-F2, but this does not work while Linux is running. I have a Compaq Evo N800w. Would anyone be able to help me with this? Thank you.

no wireless devices listed there at all,

try doing that again after pressing FN+F2 a few times to see does it change

also paste the results of lsusb here (maybe it's usb ?)

cheers

Here's the result from lsusb:



I pressed Fn-F2 a few more times and still no change in lspci. There's a light on the wireless card that usually lights up when it's on and it hasn't turned on once. Thanks.

i cannot see any reference to wireless or radio anywhere in there, are you absolutely sure that

* wireless is enabled in the bios (enter the bios at boot time and check wireless options, make sure wireless is enabled/on)
* a wireless card is connected and on

?

I'm sure that the wireless card is installed and works properly. My problem is that I can't turn it on using the Fn-F2 key combination. I should have said that I have a dual boot system with Windows XP Professional installed as well.

The key combination works in Windows and I am able to use the wireless just fine. It's only in Linux that it simply won't turn on. Is there any information that I've forgotten that might helps as well? Thanks for the help so far.

This is interesting.

When I press Fn-F2, I get the following result with lsusb:


If I press it again, here's the result:


So even though the light on the wireless card isn't coming on, something is happening when I press Fn-F2.

ok,

does lspci show anything different when you do that ?

ok it's a USB device (did some googling)

check out what this guy says (scroll down to wireless...)

http://www.psychosis.net/evo-linux/

Wireless Ethernet:

The Compaq Wireless LAN MultiPort W200 is an excellent addition to this laptop; no pc card sticking out of the side, and it's easily upgradable unlike other built-in wireless cards (I just wish they'd made it a bit slimmer). I actually flashed mine with the Actiontec firmware when trying to get it working with a previous version of the linux-wlan drivers (as I found suggested on a mailing list). It's working fine now, but I don't know whether or not it'd work with the Compaq firmware. Please note that, as far as I know, there is NO WAY to revert to the Compaq firmware if you do this. Therefore, I would suggest that you do this only as an absolute last resort, and at your own risk. You could permanently destroy your wireless card. (If anyone knows how to get the Compaq firmware back on the card, please let me know.)

You can get the latest drivers from the linux-wlan site. You need to enable USB support when you configure them.

The default hotplug drivers and config script were having issues (it seems that the normal hotplug program tries to pull information from /proc/bus/usb which makes the card unhappy), so I ended up writing my own hotplug script, available here. Put this somewhere like /usr/local/sbin, then put this startup script wherever your distribution will run it (I have mine in /etc/rc.boot for Debian).

Power to the Multiport card is controlled with Function-F2 on the N600c. Make sure that it's enabled in your BIOS setup. I have issues roaming from one ssid to another; if I do so, I always have to turn the card off and back on to reassociate (which is pretty simple with Fn-F2). Also, tcpdumping causes large amounts of latency/packet loss, even in non-promiscuous mode. I also have found that the card doesn't associate well unless you specify "ssid=" (e.g., no ssid). The two wireless networks I usually use both have broadcast ssid turned on, so I don't know how well the card will work on a network where you have to specify the ssid. If you're having trouble getting your card to associate at all, look at the wlanctl-ng commands in my lighthotplug script, even if you aren't using it. I'm manually modprobing prism2_usb (which installs p80211 beneath it) at bootup via /etc/modules; I don't trust the kernel autoloader. If you're having trouble seeing the card at all, make sure that these two modules are getting loaded.

if none of this helps then i can try and help you online via ssh (remote connection to your box)

however you'd have to give me full temporary root access,

it's up to you (i do it quite often to help others)
