Debian :: Connected To WiFi But Cannot Open Any Pages
Jan 8, 2016
I have installed network controller driver(iwlwifi) in debian jessie and connected to wifi, but I could not connect to any web sites. I installed network-tools and input "iwconfig" it did show a wlan0 there.
Then I opened resolv.conf ,but there were 2 resolv.conf in my /etc,one contains "search lan nameserver 192.168.199.1",one contains "nameserver 184.108.40.206 nameserver 220.127.116.11".
I changed the content of the first one to 18.104.22.168 and restart networking,but I still could not open pages with wireless network.
And I open the first one again,and it changed back to 192.168.199.1,and an extra line "domain lan"above the line"search lan".
I love using wheezy but i keep having to take my computer downstairs to hook it up to router through ethernet, i need it to connect through wifi and stay connected.
heres my problem, if i use live image and connect to network its fine but during installation process it gets to the network configuration, it will keep disconnecting at dhcp and if i try and continue it gives me the error packages broken due to it not staying connected.
MY WIFI CARD IS A TP-LINK WDN 4800
if i try and just do a net install then it doesnt show my wifi network.
it uses in both cases ar93xx atheros driver for installing, i just need to know how i can try and keep a stable connection over wifi so it can install over wifi so i dont have to keep taking pc downstairs to install it.
i done something that stopped me being able to login into wheezy i was left at black screen with blinking command line, i have reverted to mint debian until i can get a stable connection over wifi to install wheezy again.
Loaded Debian Jessie (x64) and when adding printers, can see my printer which attached ok to my RaspberryPi and can print thru it, but can not attach to my Jessie box. If it adds, it can't see it or reports printer is busy, tried every config I could find on the web. Previous versions of Debian I loaded the canon print driver separately and loaded the cnij(?) filter. Do I still have to do that? Is there a trick to getting a network canon to work?
I just installed Debian with the latest testing iso, and I'm having problems connecting to the web via browser. I can ping hostnames (i.e. google.com, debian.org, etc.) from the terminal and it resolves just fine, but if I try to load a page from Iceweasel or Epiphany it says the page won't load because it can't resolve the hostname. Can someone tell me what I'm missing?the detail that I'm running amd64. I've checked iptables and found no entries, and for good measure I flushed it to be certain. I also checked resolv.conf but that looked normal, just a nameserver entry pointing to my home router. I'm new to Debian, but have used Linux for years, and I'm genuinely stumped. I'm sure the solution will smack me in the head for its simplicity, but nonetheless I need at least a shove in the right direction.
I was wondering if there's any way for a laptop to be both simultaneously connected to a wireless network, while at the same time acting as an ad-hoc network with local access to serve as a wifi connection for my mobile device, which would be ssh-ing into the laptop and using local resources.
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 in a dual boot Vista system (DELL INSPIRON 530). Everything was ok except the wireless network configuration. Afrer checking on the Internet I realized There was an issue with my network card (Broadcom BCM431. I first tried to install the drivers using Ndiswrapper with not succes. Finally, I was able to use the b43 driver by installing b43-fwcutter. Now the driver is shown and active in the Hardware Drivers Utilily. I am even connected to my Wireless Network. However, I cant load any website. I have checked the parameters in the network set up. I have even tried different options, like static or dinamic IP. But I cant load any website.
I have Kubuntu installed under windows 7. It finds my wireless connection and says i am connected. even with a wired connection it does the same. When i go to the web browser and try it out. says problem with connection. will include some pictures of "iwconfig" and others.
I have been using Linux via my Acer Aspire One for a few weeks now without any problem. Suddenly I find I can get a WiFi connection but consistently it fails to load the pages. I have tried 2 connections so I know it's my machine. And probably something I have touched. How to reset the the internet settings or better still can I reset the computer back a few days (like in Windows) to resolve this problem?
I am trying to set up a wireless 'test' box to use on a private club (11,000 acres). The initial tests won't need anything fancy, it will just be checking the visibility of a hotspot from a high-point in the middle of the property. But if it proves to have good visibility, later tests will be (hopefully) promoted by the club and made aware to members. I would like to set up a captive portal to redirect them to a comments page where they can post a quick message if they were able to connect ....
Most of the examples I see online of captive portal are based on having an internet connection and/or a NAT scheme set up. I just need a hotspot and a single web-page for these promotional tests. If possible, I would like to trigger any devices capable to suggest or otherwise open a browser to go to the promotional landing page ...
Also, one more quick question, this is to eventually be an 'open' internet for this test - most of the wpa set-up examples show using a passkey. Is making an open wifi as simple as not including the passkey or is there something else I would need to be doing?
WiFi on this laptop worked fine for a few months then went out; after a reinstall of ubuntu (since 9.xx had come out since then anyway) the wireless still refused to even see networks, let alone connect to them; under Wireless Networks in the NM, I just see a greyed out 'disconnected'. This got me to thinking that it may have just been a hardware issue, but I find that hard to believe. Anyway, here's the pertinent information:
Started off with an lshw command just to see if a network adapter is even listed as being connected: `lshw`
As an addendum : I found this driver project but they claim to require a 2.6.8+ kernel; a quick `uname -r` shows that mine is 2.6.31, and an `apt-cache search linux-image` reveals that to be the highest available from repos; do Debian/Ubuntu distros not use more recent kernels or is this an Ubuntu-specific kernel naming scheme? If so, to what would it be comparable? I'm hesitant to try to install this and change my firmware if it's likely I'll be borking something.
I have 2 laptops connected by a lan cable - from 1 laptop network card to the other. the first laptop is an Asus eeePc that runs a modified version of debian. this one is connected to the internet and i simply want the other one to connect to the internet via the lan cable. the "server" has 2 connections: 1. one for connecting to the internet via a dialup mobile connection (i checked and this connection is shared) 2. the 2nd connection: "Local Area Connection" defined this way:
IP address: 192.168.0.4 subnet mask: 255.255.255.0 + it is also marked as 'shared' that's all, no Gateway/DNS/Wins defined
my problem is that the client (192.168.0.3) cannot open web pages even if it sees just fine the server's files.
is the following (btw I'm new to linux) - installed f14, connected to WiFi from my home router, started Firefox, and it was not able to open any pageslong with that I successfully updated my system and applications (and even installed new ones) through the same internet connection.Being connected to WiFi on my workplace I am able to browse with firefox, but at home - not...What could be the problem? What additional info should I give?PS. Sorry if the problem was already addressed, I am trying to find the solution on the web - but no success. Also 1-day discussions on ru-net forums were not successful, unfortunately.
I just installed Fedora 14 i386, and Fedora can see the wireless network just fine. I try to connect and nothing happens. It asks for the PSK constantly (yes, I promise I'm entering it correctly), even after I enter it correctly (I guarantee). I've searched around here a bit, but due to my limited knowledge in linux system I can't figure it out

I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 over windows 7. i have made a new active wireless connection (home wifi) and it was successful and is now connected to the home wifi but when i start up firefox to surf the net it says cannot display page.
I'm playing a game using wine that uses an internet browser style menu. One of the options that the game offers is to open the current game page with your external browser. I've used it hundreds of times when I was on windows and it worked fine and I was able to save the current page to a folder. Now that I'm using fedora the link doesnt work. It doesnt open firefox and it doesnt give me any message to let me know that it even recieved the request.
I've been using my upstairs computer with no problems recently up until this evening, when I rebooted it did an automatic scan of my disks, so I left it to it's thing and when I came back ubuntu had successfully booted, and had seemingly successfully connected to my wireless network as usual.
I've been through the wireless troubleshooting guide, paying special attention to sections 4 and 6 but to no avail, while I'm apparently connected, and have been assigned an IP by my router I'm unable to access anything outside my computer, including the router itself. This happened before, however I solved it by reinstalling ubuntu, and I'd rather not do that again!

I am facing very strange problem with my Dell with WiFi card (04:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless WiFi Link 5100) It seems I am connected to the WiFi but can not access internet I have to disable networking and re-enable it to access internet.
I'm facing a strange problem after upgrading my Ubuntu to 10.10. After I start up the system, the wifi is not getting connected by default (which was getting connected automatically in the earlier version). So I right click on network manager and click on 'Enable Wireless' option and it gets connected. So far so good. Now I close the laptop lid - it goes to sleep mode and after it wakes up, the wifi never gets connected. When I right click on the network manager icon, the 'Enable Wireless' option is disabled! I have to reboot my machine to get connected!
The web navigation is very very slowly. The load of web page is slowly. I don't know what i do. I connect with wifi. the download with software same emule is good. I use firefox but i tried also other browser.
I've noticed that switching to Ubuntu about 6 months ago has made it noticeably more difficult to use the free wifi at my school. When I had Windows 7 on the same laptop, it was much easier to establish and maintain a connection. I know it's not the hardware. My question is: is there some security setting that makes it difficult to use public wifi on Ubuntu? Also, I don't have this problem at home on my WPA2 home wifi network.
