Fedora Networking :: CLI - Nmcli() - Connecting To New Wireless

Oct 31, 2010

I find it interesting that the only CLnetwork manager is nmcli(). Are there others you know and love?

I have been trying to use nmcli(), and I am having some difficulty.

When I run...

Code:

I get a great list of available wireless connections, but it seems to me I am not getting the 'right' information, or I do not know how to implement the information I am getting.

When I try to connect using the

Code:

It tells me, 'Unkown connection'.

So I wonder in the devices list is the SSID, in the single quotes, not the id the 'up' command requires? Or how do use the SSID? As far as the UUID, this option works for me, but I can only see the UUID if I had already once before connected to this connection. Is there any way to see the UUID of a new connection?

Fedora Networking :: Using NMCLI To Bring Up Mobile Internet Connection

Sep 19, 2010

I can use nmcli to bring down and back up again my wireless connections but it doesn't seem to work with my "Mobile Broadband" connections. It works to bring down my mobile internet with :

Code:
nmcli con down id OptusInet
But when I try to bring it up again with :
Code:
nmcli con down id OptusInet
It says :

Code:
Error: No suitable device found: no device found for connection 'OptusInet'.
Even when I add the device with :

Code:
nmcli con up id "OptusInet" iface ttyUSB0
It says :

Code:
Error: No suitable device found: device 'ttyUSB0' not compatible with connection 'OptusInet'.
Am I doing something wrong?? Any ideas anyone??

Device info for my mobile device :
Code:
[my_prompt]$ nmcli -p dev list .....

Fedora Networking :: Wireless USB Adapter Not Connecting: F10

Nov 12, 2009

I have a wireless USB (TP-Link TL-WN620G) adapter on F10( 2.6.27.38-170.2.113.fc10.i686). I have installed the drivers and it is detecting my router. But it keeps asking for network password with repeating a dialogue box although I entered correct password. I have configured the wireless configuration using NetworkManager.

Fedora Networking :: Connecting To Wireless Router ?

May 5, 2010

When fedora initially starts up, the network manager shows all the available wireless connections available to me. However, when I select my wireless connection, it will go through the loading process where it shows the two green dots and the circular moving blue streak, then it prompts me to put in the wpa password.

This is where the trouble starts...when i input my wpa password, it will proceed to attempt to connect to my network but it never succeeds in doing so--it will keep on asking me to input my wpa password. when i finally get sick of doing it over and over again, i just hit cancel instead of retrying to connect.

After i stop trying to connect, the network manager no longer shows all the available wireless networks--the list is completely empty, and i can find no way to get the list to show up again, with the exception of restarting my computer.

I am able to connect to the internet with a wired ethernet, but id like my wireless to work.

Fedora Networking :: Fedora Locks Up Connecting By Wireless To OpenWRT Router

Nov 16, 2009

I dual boot Windows/Fedora 11 on my Dell Latitude D830 laptop, which has an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG card and I have just bought a Linksys WRT160NL wireless router. I am currently trying to set up OpenWRT linux on the router. Because of the nature of my problem I have also posted this on their forum.I am having trouble connecting to my OpenWRT install via Fedora. Things seem okay in Windows, but when I try to connect from linux my laptop locks up completely and I have to hard reboot. I previously have never had any trouble connecting to any other router with this install of Fedora.

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Start An Openvpn-connection Via The "nmcli"-command To Control NetworkManager

Jun 4, 2011

As I reported in this bug:[URL].. root is not able to start an openvpn-connection via the "nmcli"-command to control NetworkManager, whereas my user does not run in any problems with this command. My error output when starting as root is as follows:

Code:
# nmcli con up id "my-openvpn"
Active connection state: unknown
Active connection path: /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/5
state: VPN connecting (need authentication) (2)
Error: Connection activation failed: no valid VPN secrets.

Does anybody know what to do about this strange behaviour? The vpn-secret seems to be stored in the gnome-keyring and in the /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/my-openvpn simultaneously. But root cannot access any of these. Why this is important? I'm trying to set up a dispatcher-script to automatically start openvpn on eth-connection. but this does throw the exact error from above (no valid vpn secrets..).

Fedora Networking :: Wireless Connecting Fine But Slow Performance

Apr 29, 2010

My wireless was connecting fine, but it was impossible to browse with. So, after searching around for a while I found a thread where it said to enter this and reboot.
#echo "net.ipv4.tcp_moderate_rcvbuf=0" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
#echo "net.ipv4.tcp_default_win_scale=0" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
But after entering that and re booting, now I cant even connect to the wireless. It says connecting but times out.

Fedora Networking :: Wireless Not Connecting - Network Manager Won't Allow Me To Turn It On

Fedora Networking :: "bad Password" When Connecting To Wireless?

Feb 21, 2011

When I tried to get it to connect, I keep getting "bad password,' and I've entered the password the router uses. I'm using Fedora 13, 32 bit, and have to use ndiswrapper to get my receiver to work. AND (it's a big "and," I'm afraid) I'm using wicd. I have Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Fedora as operating systems. Ubuntu froze when I tried getting this to work! I have Linux Mint 10 on one computer, Mint Debian on another, and Mint LXDE on an ancient Thinkpad. All three versions of Mint connected without a problem! The Ubuntu fubar may have come from the ndiswrapper driver..who knows? It worked without a hitch for three months before it had a melt-down. Any way to do an end-run around the "bad password," as in maybe using the terminal instead of the GUI?

---------- Post added at 12:54 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:22 AM ----------As a side note, I went with wicd because Network Manager seemed to drop the signal frequently, and I had to reboot to reconnect. Not a Fedora problem per-se, as that's a problem that I have with NM on every distro I've seen. But if it would solve the password problem by "turning off" wicd and re-enabling Network Manager, I can give that a shot, if there's a command to do that. I'm not able to get to the web on this computer right now, but Network Manager was disabled from the command line, and I assume it could be re-enabled just as easily.

Ubuntu Networking :: Not Connecting To Wireless

Mar 28, 2010

I recently installed the latest version of Kubuntu in a dual boot system with Windows XP on a Dell laptop. The dell laptop has a broadcom wireless device, and I was able to set up the driver and get wireless working. Then I booted into windows XP to make a whole bunch of updates/driver installations, and when I booted back into Kubuntu it would not connect to the wireless network. I am pretty sure the device is still active, because it picks up on the wireless networks in the area. But KWallet does not open to ask for my password on booting. Something is not set right, but I can't tell what.

Networking :: Connecting To Wireless AP Manually?

May 14, 2009

I have a Laptop running Fedora Core 10 (64 bit). I recently have fallen in love with window managers (openbox to be precise); the Problem is, when in these window managers, I cannot connect to wireless APs. I've tried restarting the network manager, but alas it has no effect. So, I'm left with terminal commands (YAY!!! I love any chance to use those.) so is there a command that I need to use to connect manually?

Networking :: G USB Dongle Not Connecting To My Wireless

Oct 19, 2010

I am just staring in the world of Linux (I want to stop eating what Microsoft leaves behind). I have this minor problem using Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat). The OS had detected my CNET Wireless-G USB Dongle (CWD-854). I have a Linksys Wireless Router (WRT-120N). I see in the top right corner of the OS the wireless icon. When I click on it, it displays the SSID of my wireless. When I click on it, it ask me for my wireless password. It start to try to connect to my wireless router, but it always end up disconnecting.

Ubuntu Networking :: No Connecting With Wired Or Wireless?

Apr 1, 2010

in short : installed 9.10 on a dell inspiron 600m which has a broadcom bcm4401 ethernet and an intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B mini PCI. At this point, i'm not too picky about which one works (meaning neither of them currently work). nm-tool seems to pick up on both : the broadcom (eth0) is using the b44 driver, State is unavailable; the intel (eth1) is using the ipw2100 driver, it's State is disconnected.

i have encryption turned off, and the wireless sees a number of AP's (including mine).

i'm jumping off the good ship m$ and determined to make this work!

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Router Connecting ?

Jun 21, 2010

I have a computer running Ubuntu, and a MacBook Pro. I need to buy a decently cheap wireless router that I can hook up to my Ubuntu so that it will send wifi signals and I can use the wifi to go online with my MacBook Pro. I was about to get one today, but remembered how Ubuntu is picky about working with things like that. I'm only going to be using it to get signals around the house which isn't that big at all.

So what would be the cheapest and decently efficient wireless routers that I can use which Ubuntu will cooperate with?

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Secure Wireless AP In Jaunty?

My brother is trying to connect his laptop to his university's secure wireless network and is running into some problems.

He is receiving the following error messages with private info removed:

kern.log

Jan 13 09:42:52 laptop kernel: [ 91.746454] wlan0: RX AssocResp from REMOVED (capab=0x421 status=12 aid=0)

Also, in my research it appears that people that have Wireless problems often install the linux-backports to see if this fixes the issue.

Ubuntu Networking :: HP Mini 1001tu Wireless Not Connecting Using 9.10

Jan 31, 2010

I successfully did a dual boot on a HP Mini 1001TU netbook. However, the wireless doesn't connect. Over the internet, someone had a similar problem with his Dell notebook using a Karmic and said that Karmic has a bug that doesn't install the "Broadcom STA wireless Driver" and recommended a prerequisite wired internet connection then the following command line:

sudo apt-get update
sudo-get -reinstall install bcmwl-kernel-source
Followed by a reboot which solves the problem.

I would like to try this out but the netbook only accepts a USB -router connection but my router doesn't have a USB port.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Wireless In Kubuntu Lucid?

May 14, 2010

I'm having trouble connecting to our home wireless network in Kubuntu Lucid. I was hoping someone here might be able to help. I can connect with no problem in Ubuntu and Xubuntu; I'm having difficulty in Kubuntu only. It might just be me being unfamiliar with the KDE network management app, I don't know.

1. I click on the network icon in the system tray, and choose "manage connections". I click on the "wireless" tab, and click "add".

2. I enter the name of our network in the SSID field (our router doesn't broadcast its SSID; however, if I click "scan" the neighbors' wireless networks do appear in the list) under the "wireless" tab, then I go the "wireless security" tab, and choose "WPA/WPA2 - personal" and enter the password. I click OK.

3. Now when I right-click on the network icon and choose "create network connection", the new connection for our network that I just made shows up in the list, but it has an icon showing a pen on paper instead of the broadcasting signal icon that appears next to the neighboring networks. It also says my connection is "insecure", even though I chose WPA and put in the password. (Neighbors' networks do say WPA, WEP,etc.)

4. I select my network connection that I created above, and click connect, and nothing happens. No connection is created. how the KDE network app works; I've used mostly XFCE and GNOME in the past, but I've heard good things about Kubuntu Lucid and really would like to take it for a spin. However, this computer has only a wireless connection, so I really need to get it working.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless No Longer Connecting And Repeatedly Asking For WEP Key

I downloaded the latest version of Ubuntu yesterday (10.04 LTS) for the first time and it worked like a treat, with the Internet conencting immediately without any problems. However, this morning I turned on my laptop and despite seemingly connecting to the network, Ubuntu won't conenct to the Internet. It is also repeatedly asking for me to re-input the WEP Key despite it being correct and always automatically inputted.

Machine:

Intel Core Duo T2080 1.73GHZ
1GB RAM
RaLink RT7

I've been looking around for hours on the Internet to try and find a solution but to no avail, even though people do seem to experience similar problems.
