Debian Hardware :: Enabling Wireless Card Via Command Line?

Sep 14, 2010

I have a netbook and the wireless card on it works fine. Whenever I wake it up after suspending for couple of hours, it seems like the wireless card is not awaking or the drivers are not working properly because I do not see any wireless networks after waking it up(for example in Wicd). If I do fresh restart, the wireless and wireless networks come back at the same place. So I am wondering if it is possible to restart the wireless card or the driver without restarting my netbook

Hardware :: Enabling Second PCI Network Card On Debian

Oct 13, 2010

I have a dell optiplex configured with an extra PCI network card, because I plan to set it up as a gateway / LTSP server, but I have troubles getting the second network card to work. It is recognized during installation (where I can choose the primary network interface) and doing a

Code:
lshw -class network

After installation shows both network cards, with network 0 being labeled Disabled. I have tried configuring the other network interface in the /etc/network/interfaces file, but it has failed to work. I have also briefly looked at udev rules, but it seems that it renames the interfaces fine during bootup, as

Code:
dmesg | grep "udev"
Shows the following
Code:
[1.138307] udev: starting version 160
[6.003002] udev: starting version 160
[7.237092] udev: renamed network interface eth1 to ethlokal
[7.253775] udev: renamed network interface eth0 to eth1

I also noticed a briefly shown "address collision" error of some sort during boot, but it never shown for long enough for me to read it through. The network card that is enabled is an Intel 825662EZ 10/100 ethernet controller, and the one that is disabled is a Realtek RTL-8139/8139C+.

I'm new here but have been using different distros for a couple of years. I ran into this problem like a year ago for the first time and I really would like to solve this ( with your help now). I've already used hours trying to figure this out and seeked solutions online. So first things first:

- I want to connect to a wireless access point from CLI (for many different reasons)
- I'm using Fedora 13 with KDE and Gnome some specs:

Networking :: Command Line To Run Tools For Wireless In Ubuntu?

Jan 17, 2011

I want to run OpenBox on a netbook. For those of you not familiar, it is a very simple window manager, where I can launch a terminal with a mouse click, and I can start the few apps that I need from the command line. Basically, I am trading eye candy and easy access to a lot of stuff I don't need for a more responsive GUI.

My question is...what package should I install, and what corresponding command line would be used to launch a tool to manage the wireless LAN connection?

Ubuntu :: Command Line Interface Connecting To Wireless

Jul 31, 2011

I stupidly turned off my computer as I was updating to KDE 4.7. Now when i start it i get to the log in screen, but imputting my username and password just causes the Xserver to restart and i get back to the log in screen.I know there are many other packages I should install as part of the update and i think this will solve my problem, so i am trying to connect to wireless through the command line login, and then install the updates.

General :: Connecting To A Wireless Network From Command-line?

Nov 4, 2009

I run Ubuntu, and it has a nice GUI widget thing that connects me to my home wireless network when I boot. I don't have a problem with that. But suppose I don't start X, and boot to a recovery console for some reason, like I did recently when my graphics were broken after installing Karmic. In that case, my computer won't be connected to the wireless network until I log into X normally. So I can't apt-get anything or anything. It's very annoying. And I don't know how to connect to my wireless network.

I know my wireless network SSID, and I know my WEP key or WPA passphrase. How can I log onto the network with commandline tools? Is there some basic program that I can just run "networkmanager <myssid> <mywepkey>"? I looked at the iwconfig man page and I honestly couldn't figure out how to simply connect to my network. Once I figure out how to connect to the network with command-line tools, where can I put an "autoconnect" script so that it will connect during startup, like it should anyway?

What I don't understand is, why the Ubuntu network manager nm-applet, doesn't just work as a front-end for more basic networking stuff. I don't see any reason why it should require you to start X before working; it could be a daemon that runs at startup, and there could be a config-file somewhere, but it doesn't even start running until I log onto gnome.

Fedora Networking :: Connect To The Wireless Network Via Command Line?

Jul 10, 2009

I am fairly familiar with Linux but had never ventured into Wlan settings / options / too much. I have compatible card (aetheros) and when running - iwlist wlan0 scanning - I get plenty networks showing up - meaning the card works. When I installed distro which is last night (before I ran update), I had that little bars menu at the top of the screen that showed available networks once clicked upon. Since I like to modify and make my settings better - I removed that little AT&T like bar, and now rebooted after update to find that I can not see available networks unless I use iwliset wlan0 scanning.... .#$*&)@&#(&%# - need I say more.

Two questions - how do you connect to the wireless network via command line? What is that vertical bars GUI tool called so I can find it and run it again? Is there (for the love of god) alternative to system-config-network GUI managment tool for wlan?

Ubuntu Networking :: Error Connecting To Wireless Via Command Line

I've been familiarizing myself with the command line and am attempting to connect to a wireless network but am getting stuck at the point wherein I need to put in a password.When I run iwconfig I see my card is wlan0.I definitely know my password as I can connect using a GUI. The encryption method for my network is WPA2.Could someone tell me how I could connect to a WPA2 secured network via a command line, and/or where I went wrong with what I've been trying?

Ubuntu Networking :: Get Wireless WPA2 Working With Command Line Only?

Jul 6, 2011

I wanted to run a little media server in my house, shared with my laptop only, so I could free up space on my laptop drive. I took one of my Linux boxes out of my render farm and loaded up a minimal install, command line only of Ubuntu Lucid from the mini ISO (32 bit). I had to plug in a lan cable to install, but I wanted to move my box back out to the "farm" that doesn't have wired access to my intranet.

After much research, trial and error, this is what worked for me. My wireless card uses an Atheros AR5001X+ chip, and it works with the desktop cd out of the box. I found the "just works" desktop install uses the ath5k driver that is now included in Lucid, but I'm not using a desktop or window manager. I haven't tried this on server version, if you do, let others know what you had to install to get it to work.

The things I do tell you about, I instruct you as if you are a newbie, however I have left out some things that users should know or be able to lookup easily, like if you want a static address instead of using dhcp. You may not need all of the steps or you may have to do more research and troubleshooting.

Find your wireless card (you may need to lookup what to do if it is not recognized at all)List all pci devices, only show network devices (-v verbose, -vv very verbose): >>lspci -vv | grep Network List all hardware (| less lets you pause at each page - arrow keys, page down/up to navigate, q to quit) >>lshw | less

General :: Using Command Line To Connect To A Wireless Network With An Http Login?

Apr 18, 2010

I'm trying to connect to a wifi network where it hijacks all requests and redirects you to a page where you have to agree to a terms of use before it lets you connect to the actual outside world. This is a pretty common practice, and usually doesn't pose much of a problem. However, I've got a computer running Ubuntu 9.10 server with no windowing system. How can I use the command line to agree to the terms of use? I don't have internet access on the computer to download packages via apt-get or anything like that. Sure, I can think of any number of workarounds, but I suspect there's an easy way to use wget or curl or something.

Basically, I need a command line solution for sending an HTTP POST request essentially clicking on a button. For future reference, it'd be helpful to know how to send a POST request with, say, a username and password if I ever find myself in that situation in another hotel or airport.

General :: Get The Wicd Daemon To Disconnect Wireless Network From The Command Line?

Mar 14, 2011

I'm thrilled using wicd to connect to wireless networks. But when I suspend my laptop using the special keys, I just want to disconnect from wireless without having to use any kind of GUI or curses user interface. It says in the documentation that wicd works by sending DBUS messages, so presumably it's possible to write a command that talks to the daemon directly.But I can't figure out how.Does anybody know by means of what shell command I can tell the wicd daemon to disconnect me from my wireless network?

I've been having issues setting up the wireless interface on my Ubuntu server (command-line only, no GUI) and I can't seem to get it working. It seems as though the card is recognized, the drivers are installed and the interface is up, but it fails to connect. I have no idea where I'm going wrong. I have WPA and a MAC filtering setup on my wireless router. An exception has been made for this PC's MAC address and I've manually entered the connection details into /etc/network/interfaces.

General :: WPA2 - NetID And Pass - Wireless Network From Wicd And/or Command Line

Sep 23, 2010

The university I go to uses a WPA2 wireless network that requires a netID and password to connect too. I installed wicd but I can't seem to connect to this network, is there a way to add this functionality to wicd, and if so, how do I do that (links to a how-to or guide would be nice, I've yet to find one).

Also, I spend most of my time on campus in the command line, so I'd like to know if there is a way to use command line utilities to connect to this network (again, a guide or how-to would be nice)

I can get online through my fedora live USB just fine (w/ network manager) but I'd rather get on directly from slackware.

CentOS 5 Networking :: How To Create Wireless Network From Command Line With Hidden ESSID

Feb 27, 2011

I have a CentOS 5.5 server running currently with a Netgear gigabit ethernet card and for wifi I have a wi-fi card with the chipset: RT2860.Now I have gotten the ethernet card and wi-fi card working but my main question is: How do you bridge the connection between the ethernet card and the wi-fi card to create a wireless network with a hidden ESSID if possible and WPA encryption? (So the server basically acts as a wireless router as well as doing all the other stuff I need to do on it).
