Debian Configuration :: Bringing Up Wireless Interfaces At Boot Also

May 11, 2010

My new Squeeze machine detects all of my hardware including the LAN and WLAN cards, but only brings up the LAN card. There isn't even an entry for it in /etc/network/interfaces for me to modify. I tried adding the info manually but then the entire network wouldn't start. I had it configured as a static IP and I know the commands were correct due to them working on the LAN card. I believe that the name "wlan0" was causing the problem, but how else can I bring it up at boot?

Networking :: Add - Wireless Configuration In Interfaces

Jun 28, 2011

Is there a way to add the wireless network which has a WPA/WPA2/certificate + Peap+MsChap+user+password to /etc/network/interfaces? Am trying to do a bash script that asks user and password and dumps it with addition info such as Peap/Mschapv2/cert into /etc/network/interfaces so it could be automatically activated. Any Ideas? Am on ubuntu 10.04 - using the GUI network-manager it connects without any problem after adding the user/pass/cert/mschapv2/peap. But I wanted to be configured thru command line?

Debian Configuration :: /etc/network/interfaces: Ra0 Or Wlan0?

Mar 30, 2010

I had one of those random system deaths, so reinstalled squeeze (daily netinst image I think...) on my eee 1000, which uses an rt2860 wireless chip. The new install only installed 2.6.32, which I had been avoiding using because of a few problems, including it dealing with networking slightly differently. I couldn't get it to work - even without encryption - using wicd. Having had a read of [URL]... , I had a look at /etc/network/interfaces, which read; This file describes the network interfaces available on your system and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

[code]...

ra0 is now called wlan0, as far as I'm aware. I've read in several places that it is best to expunge this file of all references to wifi, so I removed the bottom section (after '# The primary network interface'). I still got nothing. However, if I go ahead and change the 'ra0's to 'wlan0's, it seems to work - wicd connects. Not very familiar with Debian (spent more time on SUSE. Drop your tomatoes - I like it. Any idea what is happening? Is what I'm doing wrong? Conversely, is the file wrong? Should it be reported? Against which package? Including any particular files?

Debian Configuration :: How To Modify Traffic Between Two Interfaces In Linux

Aug 8, 2015

I have a laptop connected to internet via wlan0. I also have eth0 interface and with it I share internet. I want to modify/filter all the traffic passing by the first laptop, something like this:

Code: Select all                    *---------------------------*
                    |        LAPTOP 1           |      *--------------* ?
                    |-----*    *------*    *----*      |              |
    INTERNET<------>|wlan0|<-->|MY_APP|<-->|eth0|<---->|ANOTHER LAPTOP|
                    |-----*    *------*    *----|      |              |
                    *---------------------------*      *--------------*

I know that in FreeBSD it is possible to use ipfw for that purpose, because it build-in into kernel. We set for example rule Code: Select allipfw add divert 2000 ip from any to 1.0.1.1

and we can use our own application to process those packets, reinject them forward etc. It will work also fast, because as I said, it build into kernel.

Is there any standart Linux-based solution to do the same? I found some info about netmap-ipfw. Is this a correct solution? Or I have to use for example IP-aliases and iptables to do that?

I need to process all the IP-packets, not only TCP/UDP/etc-protocol. Solution also must be very fast.

Debian Configuration :: Multiple Network Interfaces With VirtualBox?

Mar 29, 2010

I have a rather urgent problem with my network, I got two virtual network interfaces one internal and one external. The problem is; I can't get connection to internet. The external NIC is set as a NAT and the internal is... internal.

/etc/network/interfaces
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
address 192.168.1.200
netmask 255.255.255.0

Running with this configuration makes my internet connect go away, however if I remove the configuration for eth1 everything is working fine.

Debian Configuration :: Network / Interfaces Allow-hotplug And Auto?

Debian Configuration :: Ifconfig Wasn't Displaying The Same Information That Resides In /etc/network/interfaces File

Aug 14, 2011

i recently started sockets programming. In the process i began to look for relevant network information about my computer and realized that ifconfig wasn't displaying the same information that resides in my /etc/network/interfaces file. On the interfaces file my IP address is 192.168.1.109 for interface eth0 but ifconfig displays 192.168.1.101. I was under the impression that ifconfig got its information from the interfaces file but clearly doesn't. I tried re configuring the device with ifconfig and then disabling and re enabling the device with ifdown and ifup so that the device updated its information but it didn't.

Debian Configuration :: Networking - Netinst CD - Internet Connection Only Works After Edit The Interfaces And Resolv.conf Files Manually

I had some trouble with the netinst CD and I had to install lenny with the 6DVDs instead. My internet connection only works after I edit the interfaces and resolv.conf files manually. So my question is: can I do that from the netinst CD before it actually needs the connection to install everything? (otherwise I'll just need to use the DVDs.

Networking :: Make A Network Interfaces Configuration Immutable?

Mar 24, 2011

Similar to the linux command "chattr +i filename", I would sure like to set my eth0 interface immutable. so once I assign the eth0 interface's IP and gateway, make it stay set until I say otherwise.

this way, I can run dhclient or Networkmanager on another interface without having to fret that it may alter this interface. is there something out there that can do this?

Debian Configuration :: Dual Boot Ubuntu/Debian: Debian Has Disappeared?

Apr 5, 2011

I have just installed Ubuntu (/dev/sda7) and Debian (/dev/sda4), but since I have updated all informations on Ubuntu, then Debian did not appear anymore on the grub list. There is an wiki I have found, but I an not really sure about what to do.

Here are the boot informations:
Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010

Boot Info Summary:

=> Grub 2 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks at sector 488861020
of the same hard drive for core.img, core.img is at this location on
/dev/sda and looks on partition #3 for (,gpt3)/grub.

ps: on this file, it says that the /boot is installed on the MBR and /dev/sda3. I will remove the boot from MBR as I am now using /dev/sda3 instead. Sorry for my english

Debian Configuration :: Modify Boot Scripts To Boot Usb Device?

Mar 3, 2010

Without going into a lot of the reasons, I have a bootable program on a USB stick that i would like to 'boot' when debian is starting up (or after it completes, or whenever it makes sense to do it). My MB does not support a USB boot, I've removed the floppy and CD so I can add additional HDs (its a small box but well ventilated).

Another option I have is to use my bios 'network boot' option, but I have no clue how to use it and the only description in the mb manual says "Allows system to be booted over a network" In network boots, *usually* one is given an option of specifying a device address, and the network boot executes a boot protocol (e.g. bootp), and the boot image file is downloaded to the target, stored and run out of RAM. No evidence of this behavior is exhibited when the network boot option is selected in the bios...

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Does Not Reconnect

Oct 26, 2015

I have done a clean install of debian 8.2 (jessie) on a new PC. I am working through some of the issues that were not correctly installed. One of them is the wireless network. On startup, I have a wireless connection. At some point within the first 5-25 minutes of being logged in and doing computer stuff (there is no known action that leads to the reaction), the wireless disconnects from the network and will not reconnect. The network-manager-gnome shows three horizontal dots; the system settings> network shows all of the available networks, the strength of their signal, and the "connecting" circle spins. This behavior occurs with both WPA and insecure networks.

I have followed the guidelines for Debian>WiFi>HowToUse (https://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/HowToUse). Nothing appears amiss when following the Network-Manager>Gnome portion of the instructions. I was going to try the alternate WICD program, but one has to uninstall network-manager to use wicd and synaptic also wants to remove something called "gnome", too-- uninstalling a package with that name makes me uneasy. I have noticed that the installed versions of network-manager (0.9.10.0-7) and network-manager-gnome (0.9.10.0-2) don't exactly agree, but I doubt that that is significant.

Ubuntu Networking :: ADVISEADDR: Error In Specifying Interfaces: No Existing Ip Interfaces Found

Jan 7, 2010

I have a weird issue that I have not seen on any forum. My jaunty on DELL studio laptop seems connected to net, but I can not access any network service (ssh, firefox etc.). But when I connect a cable the cable lights blink as it should be and in wireless connection my wifi light blinks.

It was working 2 days ago without problem, and I have not done big changes recently.I removed and reinstalled network-manager and network-manager-gnome. Nothing changed. I see a message in each restart as follows (when Openafs is starting). I can reproduce it with "/etc/init.d/openafs-client restart"

Code:
