My broadband internet connection came with a Nokia-Seimens C2110 Adsl modem. Please help me connect the modem through USB cable as the ethernet card is used to connect my computer(Asus- P5RD2 VM motherboard) to a different computer on LAN. I am in a fix and have no clue how to proceed.
I have set up many Dansguardian/Squid proxy servers. All of them have been on a network where I could use Microsoft Group Policies to force the proxy settings on each machine. The entire setup is quite easy, surprisingly robust, and reliable as hell.
My Dentist talked to me today and asked for something different. He wants to set his office up as a wireless hot spot for his patrons, and he wants their surfing directed through a proxy server. I plan on putting them on a completely different subnet and independent router. Now, since I won't have the convenience of GP I'm wondering if there is a way to force all internal Port 80 traffic through the Proxy server but obviously not the Proxy itself. I would like to use the router to do this and not the Linux box. Is there a low cost home router like Linksys or Netgear that will do this?
I have a question. I just bought an internet router which also has wireless connection and my notebook also has wireless LAN.I was able to connect the computer to the internet router very easy. But i dont know how to make it work wirelesss under fedora linux 12...i mean how should i setup the connection to the router so i will be able to have a wireless connection?
I am running openSUSE 11.2 and just recently my network has been down. I'm using Gnome, but using Yast to configure my network (I'm usually forced to use wireless as I travel a lot on my laptop). Usually, when I'm connected to a wireless network, it will show up as so in the Gnome start menu, but recently, it will only say Wired there, even though I have nothing connected to my ethernet jack. I can connect wirelessly to a home router, but cannot use the wireless in any other way. I have tried manually disabling the ethernet connection to no avail. Unfortunately I am limited in my linux knowledge, so I am kinda stuck here.
I just installed WUBI and tried to connect to my home router but am unable to. I can connect to nearby unlocked routers, but am unable to connect to mine which is WPA-PSK [TKIP]. Also, this is the first time I've even seen Ubuntu
I have a desktop PC running Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7, and a Eee PC 701 laptop running EasyPeasy Ubuntu 9.04. I'd like to connect the desktop to the laptop with a wired connection (eth0), then the laptop to my ADSL router using wireless (ath0).
I have a crossover ethernet cable (I bought on ebay). I have set up my laptop with a static IP address on my LAN and it uses OpenDNS.
I have added this to /etc/sysctl.conf on the laptop:
This is a variation on what I found on other sites describing how to set up a router. I don't understand iptables very well, but I gather that the above two lines should set up forwarding so that traffic from my router to the laptop will be forwarded to the desktop, and vice versa.
But this doesn't work. The connection doesn't even establish between the laptop and the desktop.
I cannot connect to internet. I just installed Fedora 12 w/ the Live CD and I have a Linksys WMP54G Wireless Card (v4.1 I believe) and it apparently installed fine upon install of fedora. It will not thought connect to the internet. It reads my connect (NETGEAR-2.4-G), my router is a Netgear WNDR3300. It worked perfectly fine on Windows XP. Like I said, it picks up my wireless connection. But when I go to connect it attempts to connect for like a minute or two then goes back to not connected.
Am new, as of today to Fedora. I am unable to connect to my home wireless network. I have checked the security settings WPA PSK Personal TKIS, on the router. I have two windows PCs that are connected in this way.
The error message in Fedora 15 Network is Authentication required by wireless network. The details I have entered are correct, but no joy. Again, I am entirely new to Fedora
Since I installed fedora on my desktop (there is no other OS on my desktop computer at the moment) I can't connect to my laptop which has Windows XP installed on it, although I can normally connect to internet from both computers. Here is the drawing to illustrate how everything is connected:
On the picture you can see that the phone line goes to the ADSL modem. The ADSL modem is connected to the Wireless modem with LAN cable. Wireless modem is connected to my desktop computer with LAN cable, and trough the wireless connection to the laptop. Internet is working fine for both computers, but desktop can't see laptop and vice versa. What do I need to do in order to see the laptop?
I am trying to setup a dhcp server for my internal network. I have two NICs, a modem, and a wireless router. I have my server connected directly to my modem which is providing me with Internet access on eth1 and is working fine. I have dhcp and dns setup on eth0 which is connected to my router. The router shows that it is connected to the Internet but when the router gives a client computer an IP address, the client is unable to connect to the Internet but can connect to the router. I will post my configuration files below with my current configuration.
So let's get to my question. I have two notebooks, but one of them don't work without a battery. So I want to use it like a wifi router for the other one. On the broken one I've installed openSUSE 11.3 and plugged the LAN cable. So now it has Internet. My question is how to create a WLAN and use it like a router
I know Windows forward and backward but I am so new to linux it's just wrong. I just installed fedora (like 1hr ago) on and old toshiba laptop with a WiFi PC card. Everything seems to work fine except. My Networks connects to my home Wifi network but it will not connect to internet. When it connects the IP address isn't even close to being in the same range as my other laptops and PCs. Like I said I'm new to linux but I'm wanting to learn. Any fixes for this issue? Which linus book is the best one to read for a beginner? Other then not connecting to internet I have no complaints.
After seeing a few articles on making a home router I thought "I'll have a go at that" as I've spare bits and bobs lying around. Now apart form some iffy wireless cards one major problem sprung to mind. Clearly there will be 2 NIC - 1 in and in my case one out. And that one has to be wireless. But I've yet to find a ready built one (is Smoothwall or the like) that will allow me to do this with a wireless network card in the machine.
Firstly is it doable as all the traffic in my house is wireless. Secondly are there any ready built distros that will handle it for me.
I'm wanting to set up a network. I'm still confused as to how to set it up. I think the easiest design is to have a switch on my border router.n this switch will be the servers. Also attached to this switch will be a Linux box. This will be a dedicated firewall. On it will be another switch. And the machines on the internal network will be attached to this switch. In the book "building Internet firewalls"(o'reilly) this set up is described as a screened subnet architecture. However the external interface on the Linux dedicated firewall will have to get it's I.P via dhcp (192.168.1.*) from the border router.
That or it can be a static I.P on the same subnet as the border routers dhcp range 192.168.1.*(but outside the dhcp range) but that would be trickier.The internal interface of this dedicated firewall would be static and on a different subnet as the external interface (192.168.2.*). Then this internal interface could give out I.Ps to the internal network that are on 192.168.2.*. If it did N.A.T for packets from the internal network then N.A.T would be being done twice; once by the Linux dedicated firewall and once on the border router, before going off to the net.Or is it a better approach to NOT do N.A.T on the Linux firewall and have all I.Ps on the whole network assigned as static(outside of the border router's dhcp range, but all on the same subnet(192.168.1.*))?.
Basically is there any point in the Linux box doing dhcp and N.A.T for hosts on the internal network?. I guess the answer is no. But i just wanted to hear your opinions, if you have the time. The border router is a home router. nted to have a normal triple-homed dedicated firewall and put it in the border router's DMZ but it proved unpredictable and tricky. So i just wondered what the best I.P addressing scheme would be for my newer way.
I updated a firmware of my wifi router (small black box with antenna). The router is managed via web browser at address 192.168.1.100. I opened Mozilla Firefox connected to the router, but a 'home.asp' application - an interface one can to set up a configuration - running on the router didn't work properly. When I tried to change some settings, and eg. clicked a confirmation button nothing happened. I solved the problem staring Windows and making a connection using IE - this time that home.asp application did OK. The question is what may caused problems? A bug in this app or in general *.asp applications don't communicate well with browsers other than IE or simply they don't 'like' Linux?
How can I successfully SSH using SecureCRT from the Internet to my Centos Linux box at home behind the router? I have a DGL-4500 dLink router. I configured a Virtual Server in the router for SSH 192.168.0.182 Protocol 6 TCP public port 22 ? private port 22 Schedule Always Allow Inbound Filter Allow All. Further I Enable DMZ for 192.168.0.182. I got my Internet IP address through "what is my ip website." Now every time when I try to SSH, I get a message "The remote system refused the connection". Here is iptables -L command output;
My son lost his USB Wireless stick for his Computer. I had thought I heard that if you had a second wireless router, you could use it somehow to detect the wireless router you have already set up in your home (like using a wireless card)? Is this what Ad-Hoc is? Either way, can this be done and if so how? I use a WRT54Gx2 Lynksys router and have a TRENDNET TEW-432BRP wireless router and also a spare D-link DI-514. I use ubuntu 10.04, and also wanted to know if I connected one of the router to his on the LAn port could he connect msaybe through an Ad-Hoc on my local computer here? He uses XP on his. I'm a newbie to linux and networking in general.
The garage in my house is a dead spot for my current wifi router.I can't get a signal there.Moving my router within the limits of my cabling doesn't fix it. But I have two other routers I'm no longer using.Is it possible to use one of them as a wireless access point to extend the range of my current router?If so, what is the general procedure for doing that? My main router is a Verizon Actiontec M424WR. My other unused routers are a D-Link and a Netgear, both of which have wireless capability. The Netgear had a superior range, as I recall.
Hardware: Notebook OS: Debian 6.0.1, installed very recently goal: access vista windows shares in my home network
What would keep changing the domain to "lan" in network settings on my Debian notebook? I've tried launching network-admin from a root terminal, made changes, but after rebooting it reverts back to "lan". Perhaps it's irrelevant, but maybe it's the reason I can't see any other PCs when I try to browse the network.
Installed samba, but that seems more for setting up a share, than trying to access existing shares. At any rate, it did not solve anything.
Weird though, because immediately after I installed Debian, I was able to browse the network successfully. I've only installed zsnes and debian updates since then. I also installed the Broadcom firmware/driver needed for wireless today, but my network browsing problem existed prior to that.
My problem is little different then what I've seen here. I get the same message after inputting network name and password. I click connect and it just pops up again I don't get it. I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 for Ppc (PS3) I get no internet connection what so ever just the same message. The message I get is " authentication required by wireless network " What do I need to do to connect wireless to my router with my PS3 using Ubuntu 8.10? It does connect with a Ethernet Wire. I am new with Linux.
Linux and have a western digital server (my book world edition) I can access it with Ubuntu 11.04, just by downloading Samba and then by clicking on network and the server shows up, but with Fedora 15, after I have installed Samba, I click on network and all that shows up is my router?
