    Default Bt4-Final -> Bt4-R2: Wlan0 Issue. No such device.

    Hello!

    I've updated from bt4-final to bt4r2 and after that, my wifi won't work.

    It worked correctly before after I did /etc/init.d/networking start and /etc/init.d/wicd start.

    But now, I only get:
    Code:
    wlan0: Error while getting interface flags: No such device
    Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client V3.1.1
    Copyright...*
    All rights...*
    For more info, ...*
    
    SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
    wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
    wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
    Bind socket to interface: No such device
    Failed to bring up wlan0.
    done.
    I've searched the forum and I guess I tried almost everything!
    Eth0 works fine. It connects and I get ip from dhcp.

    I will update the post soon with some command outputs!



    Thanks,
    Mogge.

    Just use the command line and try to connect that way. Paste your commands and output. Further having info on your card may help.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    Hi, will try to connect from command line. First, here is some information.

    It's a LG-X120 laptop with a RTL8187SE wireless card built in.

    A side note is, I've read some and to my understanding, this card could cause some trouble, specially in the new r2? May not be right.

    Anyway, I've used the same setup before, with Ubuntu 8, and did great with aircrack so I know it HAS worked before at least

    Default

    Code:
    root@bt:~# iwconfig wlan0 essid *****
    Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :
        SET failed on device wlan0 ; No such device.
    Can't get much further there. Tried also with stopping networking first. Everything I try gets "No such device".

    The only thing I can't manage to try is I've found some drivers that need to execute
    Code:
    ./makedrv
    ./make install
    But always when compiling, I get error at ./makedrv so I can't get any further there either.


    Thanks

    Hey!

    I got it up and running. It was a driver issue. Found some drivers from google that I compiled and installed. Just searched for rtl8187se linux driver and there it was. Thought I already tried all of them, but missed this one.

    However, new problem.

    It all works now, great, BUT when booting up, the "Configuring network interfaces..." takes very long! 1,5-3 minutes.

    Any idea why?


    Thanks

    Thanks
    you can try config the etc/network/interfaces there start with dhcp or not... and please, post where you find the drivers for rtl8187se for BT4-R2 I cant fix it.
    Thanks

    Thanks
    I got same slow boot problem on notebook with RTl8187 card and I simply removed netwotking from boot

    Code:
    update-rc.d networking remove
    quite useful sometimes, why not to add "remove" operator into BT4 basic usage page

    best

    Bt4-Final -> Bt4-R2: Wlan0 Issue. No such device.

    Hello!

    I've updated from bt4-final to bt4r2 and after that, my wifi won't work.

    It worked correctly before after I did /etc/init.d/networking start and /etc/init.d/wicd start.

    But now, I only get:
    Code:
    wlan0: Error while getting interface flags: No such device

    done.
    I've searched the forum and I guess I tried almost everything!

    Default Re: Bt4-Final -> Bt4-R2: Wlan0 Issue. No such device.

    Update your boot defaults so it doesn't run the networking start script. It tries to start each network connection listed in /etc/network/interfaces and then make a dhcp request. So it makes the request, waits, makes another, waits, times out then onto the next interface, etc. This is what causes the delay in startup.
    Computer security is a temporary condition.
