Ive installed win7 starter and lubuntu 14.04 on a samsung n145 jp02au netbook which ive just bought

Ive succesfully installed samsung-tools. I can brighten screen and change volume using fn up-down arrows.. so thats all good...

However I do not have a wireless icon on the bottom right of the screen on the toolbar..

So no way to enable wireless when in lubuntu 14.04

I can only 'see' samsung-tools in the ppa repository ..-laptop,-backlight,-wireless,-easy-slow-down-manager are not present. I presume they are now all included in samsung-tools rather than in a seperate package?


The wireless works fine under Win7 so what am I missing ??

Many Thanks

Hey msfarrar,
I have the same problem here. Can you describe how you solved it?

Firstly, install wpa_gui if you havent done so already . You should be able to find asnd install it by searching Synaptic Package Manager

1)Get encrypted pka2 passphrase,for your wireless SSID to be used later when editing wpa_supplicant.conf
sudo wpa_passphrase <your-SSID> <your-wpa2-passphrase>
The output looks similar to :
network={
ssid="ii270769primary"
psk=e7d3b1558552b0e492d51599a8e8534cd7addb6dd71c58fd49e79d24f6181826
}


2)If it doesnt exist, create /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf and seed it with initialcontent.
sudo vi /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
eapol_version=2
update_config=1

3)Check if wpa_supplicant is already running
sudo ps -ef | grep wpa_supplicant

4) If it isnt't start it, else skip this step
#Start wpa_supplicant :
sudo wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -B

5) start wpa_gui ( Note MUST be run as root, else you see no networks when you run a scan)
sudo wpa_gui

scan for networks, double right click the relevant one,
add psk key details from earlier step and save

Should end up with a /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf that looks like dimilar to this:
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
eapol_version=2
update_config=1

network={
ssid="ii270769primary"
psk=e7d3b1558552b0e492d51599a8e8534cd7addb6dd71c58fd49e79d24f6181826 "
proto=RSN
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
pairwise=CCMP
auth_alg=OPEN
}


Once you've done all of the above we should be able to connect to the wireless network by
1) starting wpa_gui as root
2) from 'Manage Network' tab, scan for available networks.
3) Select wireless network, enter passphrase and save
4 From 'Current Status' tab , connect


You can probably short cut some of the early configuration steps as they seem to be obsoleted by my having to scan and enter psk key every time I connect !! But anyhow, it works for me :) You should have enough info here to get it working
Good Luck

other useful commands
samsung-tools -W status
samsung-tools -W on

1).......


thank you!

Before the people try your solution, I propose my resolution, it's much faster.

After the installation of samsung tools, digit:
iwconfig

for wifi name, tipically wlan0

Then, set the bit rate to 11Mb on wlan0 (or your name):
sudo iwconfig wlan0 rate 11M

Then, set it in auto mode:
sudo sed -i '/^exit 0/i iwconfig wlan0 rate 11M' /etc/rc.local

End reboot.

My wifi work! :D
