After connecting i am getting ip as 184.108.40.206 gateway as 10.212.64.1 but if i try to browse the Internet using firefox it says no server found error.I tried to ping [URL] and its not pinging after connecting. nslookup also fails against [URL]however if i ping any of the ip that i am getting while connecting it is pinging Also disabled the firewall and selinux is set to disable just in case to check something else is blocking but no luck
But now when I open Mozilla or Google Chrome Internet Browsers, I am not able to connect. Moreover, I also tried to ping to [URL] but it is not pinging.Is it related to some Network Manager settings. As when I look at the Network Connection Icon, it shows CROSS i.e. not connected to any network...
I have Fedora 14 And MTS MBlaze Mobile BroadBand Connection And its USB MODEM
in order to use usb modem we use 3 packages ie 1. usb_modeswitch 2. usb_modeswitch_data 3. wvdial
i have configured wvdial.conf put the req [Dialer Defaults] its behaving perfectly normal it runs the script everything is fine even shows various IP's DNS however when i open Firefox it dose not work.
I have a MTS MBlaze USB dongle, with which I can connect to the internet. The question is, how do I set up a ssh connection accessible over the internet so that any one can connect to my PC through that (using valid username/password provided by me of course) ? If not possible, what do I need to make this possible ?
This past fall, I formatted my hard drive and put fedora 12 on. Worked fine until my old hard drive decided to die. During the last few days of dying Fedora stopped being able to connect to my Linksys Wireless G router(I'm hard wired), or detect any connections. I just assumed this was the hard drives fault.
Now, I have a new WD hard drive with Fedora 14 on it and still cannot connect to the internet. I fear worst case scenario would be my ethernet port is dead but I wouldnt know how to detect that. I thought that it might be a problem of drivers also but couldnt find anything on this subject.
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 and its great. However when I connect to the internet at home it shows that the connection has been established but I still cant connect to the internet. My flatmates are all able to connect. However, I am able to connect from work both wirelessly and through an ethernet cable.
I have been through a lot of posts and was still unable to connect to the internet using wvdial utility after doing all the changes. I being a newbie to this operating system, didn't know how to get started. After going through a lot of posts, I came across an application that is going to be a part of Fedora 12 called ' blueman '. It is used to connect to the internet using a gprs enabled phone via bluetooth. It integrates itself with Network Manager making it even more easier to use. To install it type the following commands in the terminal:
Type in your password and hit enter. Then type
yum install blueman
The application is only 575kb and will install instantly.And after a reboot fedora will show an applet related to that application. Open it and click search to list all available devices and select your phone and then select bond to pair your phone with your computer ( if it isn't already). After bonding right click your phone and select serial ports>dial up service. this will make the gprs/edge/3G connection to appear in network manager and selecting it will connect your computer to the internet.
This was the bluetooth way. If you want to connect through USB, just plug in your phone and select PC Suite mode in your phone. The fedora installation will automatically detect your phone as a modem and the connection will appear in the network manager.
This works on all N series Nokia phones and also most other phones as well.
I'm using ADSL modem (not router) and I can't connect to internet. The network manager and the pppoe-setup command doesn't work. So I'm asking some of the experienced users of fedora 12 to help me setup my connection.
Details: ADSL modem with pppoe connection (working fine on win xp)
I am using Fedora 13. and had bought MTS Mblaze Mobile Broadband device. One installer comes with this device for Fedora, I have installed it.There were some issues while starting this application on fedora. But after seeing some threads for SELinux, it had been solved.Now, when I run this software, a window appears. If i clicked connect, it does show connecting and once connected automatically firefox opens.
But i am not able to access internet. After some time software shows device is in sleep mode due to inactivity. Network connectivity icon on launch panel on fedora shows network is connected.I had similar problem with Mandriva 10..
I recently set up a network of computers via Ethernet, all of which use Fedora 10. I would like to be able to get any computer on the network to hook up to the internet.(I think the solution is now figured out - see below, on page 2, "problem solved")
I'm new to slackware (and the forums) and I just installed it onto my laptop. I have previously used linux mint, and I like it but I feel that slackware might give me more experience with the terminal, and more original linux ideas. I have kde up and running as far as a window manager, and everything seems to work except connecting to the internet. I have a linksys router. I usually use wifi, but I even tried connecting through an ethernet cord and that didn't work either. I have searched many different threads, but either they didn't address my specific problem, or I couldn't understand what was going on. I tried to configure using "netconfig", but I didn't understand what many of the prompts wanted. I entered a name and a domain name, and selected DHCP, but this did nothing.
i am trying to connect Internet through wvdial using dialup connection(Xorg is off), m using Ubuntu 11.04 32 bit and Nokia 5130 xpress Music phone.....when i tried to connect with wvdial command , i got the error "subscribe to packet data first" error on cell.....here is my wvdial.conf file...Quote:
I am trying to connect my desktop to the internet via my Linksys wireless usb WUSB11v2.8 adapter. My network showed up in the Network manager as soon as I installed Fedora and it asked for my network key, but it still doesn't connect. It just keeps asking.I was reading that possibly the driver is not compatible with the OS. I heard about RPMs and the ndiswrapper program that supposedly is supposed to help with compatibility issues so I went and installed both via a direct ethernet connection.
I guess my question is now since I have these programs, what else do I need and how do I go about completing the installation? I pretty much need to be baby stepped by step into how to do this including the best place to install the software, what files do I need, and where and how if I even need to get my device's chipset.
I've searched all night for similar threads and either don't understand the instructions or find that my computer simply isn't the same! I've tried to gather as much information as I felt needed when people asked in other threads. Just use small words around me, I'm really *that* technologically inadequet. Why I bought a linux ubuntu computer is still a mystery!
I'm having trouble connecting to my home's wireless internet, which is linksys. I can connect via wire just fine, but I want to access my built-in wireless card. How do I set up the wireless for this machine? Here's the info of what version of Ubuntu and about the card.
I want to connect to the internet on my fedora core 6 OS, i am using an adsl modem(Model no. : SmartAX MT841) which requires setting up a username and password. I am a newbie to linux, so i am clueless and just cant stop wondering what to do!
I recently installed F13 on my Toshiba Satellite C650. It has a buggy ACPI which no linux distro till date supports. I got that covered though. But my problem is that the ethernet port works only if the kernel is >=2.34. But F13 came with 2.33.
I do not have an access to a wireless network. Please tell me how to update the kernel without connecting to internet directly. I am new to Fedora. I have been using Ubuntu for some time and this can be achived in ubuntu by downloading the DEB packages and dependencies.
I have just put a fresh version of Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit on my dell laptop, and I'm having a problem connecting to the internet. Before I installed the os, I tryed it out, as they let you do before a complete installation. While testing, I was asked if I wanted to install the proprietary drivers for the broadcom nic. When I did this, I was able to connect to the internet, however, after the install, I can not seem to update the drivers.
Maybe this was automatically done during installation and now there is another problem, but when I try to connect to my network, after I click connect, it disconnects right away and I am entering all the information correctly.
I just installed Fedora Core on my Dell Inpsiron B130 laptop and I am having trouble connecting to the internet both wirelessly and with an ethernet cord into the router. When trying to configure my network, I dont recognize any of the ethernet adapters in the drop down list. I have been told that my wireless card is Linux compatible (dell y8029 dell wireless 1370 802.11/a/b/g mini pci). My ethernet card is a B130 Broadcom Ethernet Driver which isnt in the drop down menu either.
I read that I need to download an ndiswrapper but I dont know where to find this download AND even if I could download it to a zipdribe, I have trouble opening a USB flash in Linux becuase its not a "valid block device". This is after the command "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbflash"
My home network is has a Netcomm NB5 ADSL modem with a D-Link DI-524 wireless router (WEP encryption). While I can access the internet using the Vista partition, on the Ubuntu partition, I cannot access anything. Further investigating the problem, I have noticed that there is something wrong with the DNS on the Ubuntu partition. Pinging the IP address of a website (such as linuxquestions.org) loads up, yet, when I type in the Domain Name, there is an endless wait. I have already deleted and re-entered the contents of the resolv.conf file as well as try to change the settings but to no avail.
Iam using Ubuntu(10.04) Desktop_edition in acer 5745 Laptop(64-Bit) , I got a Blaze USB to it and it is 32 bit (CrossPlatformUI-V1.0.27-SSTL-i386-ubuntu.deb).Iam not able to install tht deviceIs thr anyway that can work on 64 bit or should i buy a new device which supports my architecture
I just want to use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to connect to the internet. I have done a massive amount of troubleshooting, but some of it seems to contradict itself, and the only two things that I know for sure are that it used to work, and that my Ethernet cable is not the problem. When I use Terminal utilities like ifup and dhclient it seems that it can not determine IP information, but when I try to put it in manually, the "Apply" button grays out right after I finish typing it in. When I try to connect normally, in KDE or GNOME, the icon acts like it's connecting, then instead of having the connected icon, I receive a notification that "the network has been disconnected", and it goes back to the disconnected icon.
Oh, and by the way, I know that I could probably find a workaround, but I have limited resources, and this used to work. The Linux is a Dell desktop with Fedora 12 and the Windows is a Windows 7 HP laptop.EDIT: I hope that I didn't mess something up, but I accidentally used system-network-config to try putting in the IP address there, and ended up changing it back to the original settings, but the computer is now calling it Auto Ethernet in the taskbar icon, although sudo iwconfig in the terminal still calls it eth0.
