Debian Configuration :: How To Connect To Internet?
Jan 8, 2011
I have been using another OS but thought for Ham Radio Debian might be good however my stupidity took over right at the start.Have a live cd and works fine but I don't know how to connect to the Internet.Using DSL.
I set up a vpnc connection, and it says it connects fine, but then I have no internet connection at all, and cannot ssh into the remote server(the reason i need this vpn) or do anything else involving the internet.I question if it actually connects at all, as sudo vpnc myconf.conf only shows the connect banner and never progresses from there.
I am currently trying to connect to internet through my wireless card, after half day's effort I reached to this point:
/******The following error appears in the dmesg kernel ring buffer output: ipw2200: ipw2200-bss.fw load failed: Reason -2 ipw2200: Unable to load firmware: -2 ipw2200: failed to register network device ipw2200: probe of 0000:02:03.0 failed with error -5*********/
I found a solution from Intel website saying that the problem might be: "firmware in wrong location or wrong firmware version". So I proceeded to download the firmware and placed it in /lib/firmware. Also I tried to use menuconfig to enable loading firmware via hot-plug, but I think I have done something wrong when I was configuring the hotplug and firmware.
I am using Empathy IM client to access to gadu gadu and to message with my friends. The strange thing that is happening is that I keep on being connected and then disconnected and then connected again even if I am continuously connected to my internet connection (no problem when surfing or using skype for example)It also seems to come only from me because when my girlfriend is using the same gadu gadu on her windows laptop simultaneously, she doesnīt get disconnected (whether when she is at home and using the same connection as I am or when she is outside, meaning that it doesnīt seem to come from the whole gadu gadu network)maybe it has something to do with the ports that gadu gadu is using but it is strange that sometimes it is working for a period of time and then not and then again.
I have a home Debian server running, and i would like to set it up as a gateway. I have 2 networkcards in it. So internet comes from the modem and on the other card i want to setup a dhcp server and it has to share the internet. But i want it also to connect to a vpn and share the internet of the vpn.. Is that possible?
I am using Squeeze and all appears OK at first... I have a DHCP lease, PING to router works, apache servering fine in and outside the network, Epiphany seems to connects to default debian.org only, BUT I cannot connect to any other websites and apt will not connect to any servers. I installed once, tried to fix problem, gave up and reinstalled and still have the same problem.
I unistalled Network Manager thinking that was the problem, but still the same issue. Is there a default firewall blocking certain connections or am I missing something I'm supposed to know about? I installed some non-free firmware in the beginning of install and all worked... and I connected fine when downloading packages during install.
I have debian 5.05 "lenny" and i need connect to internet through vpn [url]. Before i used windows 7, and i could connect to internet with vpn without any problems. But i have no ideas, how to connect to internet with vpn in debian.
I've installed debian and configured the network: I do ping to the gateway and it connects, I ping one distant server directly with the IP and it can see it (but not with ping [URL]), but when I try to use internet it says that maybe the url is wrong, but it is not.
And when I try to update (apt-get update) it give me a bunch of errors : W: Failed to fetch http://ftp.es.debian.org/debian/dists/s ... elease.gpg Could not resolve 'ftp.es.debian.org' W: Failed to fetch http://ftp.es.debian.org/debian/dists/s ... ion-en.bz2 Could not resolve 'ftp.es.debian.org'
I did a netinstall earlier today (latest version, amd64) on my Dell XPS laptop and ended up with a minimal installation because I couldn't connect to the internet. Now I'm trying to get online without a desktop environment.
I have an Intel Centrino 1030, so I downloaded and installed the firmware [URL].... with a usb, then rebooted. My searches have turned up a lot of instructions involving a utility called iwconfig and wpasuppliant, but these are apparently not installed. I don't really know much about it, but my /etc/network/interfaces file looks rather empty:
Code: Select all# The loopback interface ¬†auto lo ¬†iface lo inet loopback
Shouldn't there be something like wlan0 there? The network card does show up with lspci
I need to connect to a serial port server via /dev/tty.. . The serial port IP addresses are the server's IP address with a particular port # (10001, 10002 etc). The way this seems to work is to create a pseudo-tty and somehow link or configure it to point to the serial server's IP/port #'s.
I installed testing on my netbook with cd1. and too my suprise it didn't even include something as important as network manager. all i want to do is connect to my wired internet, install network manager, then install my driver for card. if i can just get wired working i will be homefree. the directions for installing my wire3less driver look super simple.
I am trying to connect to a Debian account through SMB. So far I havn't had any luck and from what I have read online, without Windows 7 registry modifications, I won't get anywhere either. I have tried two main configurations on in the smb.conf. The first method was to use 'security = share' and submit the username and password on the created share. That didn't work. The second method was to use 'security = user' and authenticate to the entire smb server. That didn't work either.
I am unsure what username/password I have to enter. I am using the accounts credentials, but it isn't letting me connect with those. It also wants me to use a domain (something like 'LAPTOPusername' and then password) which I don't understand the relevance. What domain should I use?
When it comes down to it I just want an SMB share that all the Windows 7 computers in my house can access, but still requires a password. Are there any guides available? Please make sure they are up to date with the latest SAMBA and Windows 7 configuration. The ones I have gone over are old and didn't fix my problem. Also if I need to modify the registry then it isn't worth it.
I'm currently using Ubuntu and have installed debian using dual boot. In debian neither my wifi card appers nor LAN interface appears. I think during installation I'm not able to install the drivers. Can anyone help me to download the driver packages for debian (than I can download in ubuntu and then use pen drive to install in debian).onsider that I'm completely new to debian and have been using ubuntu for 2 months now and is familiar with packaging.
I'm setting up my first home server. I'm running Debian Squeeze and I can't get my machine to connect to the internet on boot.The only way I've been able to is by logging in and running the following commands in exactly this order:
sudo dhclient sudo ifdown wlan1 sudo ifup wlan1
My /etc/network/interfaces looks like this
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto wlan1
I should clarify that by not able to connect I mean that I see the DHCP discover attempts but it fails after a few attempts and says "no DHCPOFFERS recieved" So I tried putting the above commands into a script and invoking that script in /etc/init.d/rc.local and I can see that it runs but I have the same problem. I need to be able to reboot my machine as I'll be administering it remotely.
I just installed Debian 6.0.1a on an old laptop (Dell Inspiron 6000) and I can't get it to connect to my wireless internet.I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a separate partition on the same machine, and it has no problem connecting to the internet.
After doing updates to get current with Debian Jessie, I've noticed very annoying network problems going on.
This all happened while also setting up a media server box which led me to much confusion, much of what is described here [URL] ....
I've started this new thread to try to diagnose and properly take care of this specific problem alone:
Browsing the internet becomes very slow, unbearably to the point everything keeps loading up forever. This only happen while having a torrent application opened, the effects are almost immediate, closing the application and browsing resumes as normal.
How about throttling back torrent? This does not work, it even doesn't even need be at top speed. With bare minimum connections and speed will still lead browsing to a crawl.
Even so, every other device on the network is un-affected, router and other PCs continue to browse and respond very well, making it a specific on the computer in question (but also happens on my other debian jessie machine).
Can I even reach the internet? Yes I can, and this is the weird part... I can ping, solve DNS and almost everything else without issues, the only thing affected is actually browsing the internet.
I'd even setup DNS cache with dnsmasq to see if it could speed things up. Disabled ipv6, and trying pretty much every method I could find.
Having pretty much ruled out dns problems and internet connectivity, I'm at a loss for what to look for and try. Only symptom I can describe now is that the browser will start to load up webpage but never completes... but only while torrent is active.
My current setup:
I'm on Debian Jessie, a desktop with eth manually connected. Using dnsmasq for dns caching. Disable ipv6 on the network (by the way, it keeps disabling it self I dunno why).
Running KDE with ktorrent as the client. The same thing happens on my setup media box, also Debian but with deluged running instead.
Browser in question are Firefox and Chrome, both have issues with this.
Turns out it was just a setting in my own router, that apparently limits numbers of connections made, meaning while torrent is working other connections were sure dead.
But it also happens when lots of connections are being made in other ways too. The router in question is Humax HG100R-L2, provided by my ISP. The setting is in the firewall section called IP flood detection.
I rebooted my vServer (Debian 8) and it doesn't came back up. Well, I used the rescue console on my server and the server seems to be running fine, except the network was broken. So I tried 'ifconfig' but nothing came up. So I tried to enable my interface with 'ifconfig venet0 up', and now it appears in my ifconfig list
My HWaddr doesn't look that well :) 'ip addr' prints this result:
Code: Select allroot@i67svof:/var/www# ip addr 1: lo: <LOOPBACK> mtu 65536 qdisc noop state DOWN ¬† ¬† link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00 2: venet0: <BROADCAST,POINTOPOINT,NOARP,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN
These are the last lines in /var/log/syslog:
Code: Select allroot@i67svof:/var/www# tail /var/log/syslog Feb 20 11:34:16 i67svof systemd: Stopping memcached daemon... Feb 20 11:34:16 i67svof systemd: Stopping Network Name Resolution...

And finally my network config in /etc/network/interfaces
Code: Select all# Auto generated lo interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # Auto generated venet0 interface auto venet0
I'm a new Debian user but I've been around Linux for awhile. I wanted to try Debian because I wanted something stable and that I could set up myself from a minimal install. However, I'm having issues with my WiFi connection. I'm running KDE and connected to the network, but I can't access any webpages or ping, for example, google.com. I know the network is working because I'm connected to it on my phone and my wife's Macbook. Here's the output of lspci:

I'm using jessie. So far I've tried using firmware-iwlwifi from backports and installing kernel 4.3.0 from the stable repos.
I installed Debian Squeeze on my system two days ago, using a wired connection to internet (which worked fine). After that, I had to install the non-free wireless package in order to scan wireless networks. It now works fine, and I can connect and get to internet. But with wired connection, i connect via eth0 and none of my applications work. And they're not in offline mode.Also, i already went here: URL,,, and I checked if that was my case. I tryed what they say several times in some different ways, but I still can't connect. Even more, if I change something like they say, I get "unmanaged device" and I can't even connect to the internet. And the wired connection works, I'm using it right now on my ubuntu 10.10.
If you want more information, I just tried to ping sites like google.com or ......com using network preferences and it does work, it gets 100% of the packages back around 50ms later, so the internet appears to work. Also, when I connect via wireless, everything works perfectly.
I installed a fresh Debian Desktop without the LAN cable connected. After that I got message when I put the cable in:
Code: Select allNetwork Interface Connection New Wired Connection failed
I have tried to re-install everything once again with the cable in, but during the Debian installation there was no network detected.
However, I proceeded and re-installed Debian. But the problem persists. It continues to re-connect and than disconnect. There is a symbol showing re-connection. The network eth0 is visible to the machine.
I booted Mint Live disc and the same happens there.
I have Debian 8 with VBoxGuestAdditions (4.3.18). I can connect to this box from Win7 using RDP (mstsc.exe). When I connect from Windows 10 using mstsc.exe I've got error code 2308. I tried NoMachine, 2XClient, RoyalTS none worked.
W10 connecting with RDP to Linux server? If I would install xrdp onto the Linux server would it work for me?
Is it possible to connect from Win10 to Linux using RDP?
Finally took the plunge and decided to give debian a go, not done so before as feared it would be too complicated. Net install went ok. Used to wiki to get me wireless up and running by copying those commands provided most of which made no sense (why the separate kernel image for wireless?).
Anyway seems to have worked so now to the problem I can't connect to my wireless network its not broadcasting so configured it manually the way I do in ubuntu through the net manager, it doesn't connect at all.
Two nights ago I decided to switch from testing to unstable. Since then I am able to connect to the internet, but not to anything on my local network. I am unable to ping this computer from another one on the network. This computer is connected through wireless. I thought that something might have changed with iptables that was blockinghe localnetwork. I tried to "flush the iptables settings with "iptables -F". Since that didn't work I uninstalled iptables (which didn't work and I reinstalled iptables). In my browser I tried to connect to my router and that doesn't work either.I connect to this computer daily through ssh and connect to a NAS. Without ssh and my NAS I feel kinda lost
