General :: Debian - Gnome: Wireless Connection List Missing Connection?

Nov 12, 2009

Each time I start up debian -lenny, the network-manager does not automatically connect me to my wireless network. The connection list shows a lot of networks available, but mine is always absent from the list. This means I each time have to go to "Connect to other Wireless Network" in and write in my network name (SSID) and password (PWA2 Personal). Then is connects nicely and everything works fine until next time I boot

General :: Internet Connection Sharing - All Traffic From The Ethernet Connection Out Through The Wireless

Jun 25, 2010

I would like to have all traffic from the ethernet connection out through the wireless (basically using the box as a router) however I am having some trouble doing this.

I have done this before on Windows however I am having some trouble doing this on linux, I have tried using Squid Proxy however I am having some trouble using configuring/using it.

I am using Yellow Dog Linux however I am willing to change to any other distro as long as it is compatable with PS3 (as this is what im using linux on)

OpenSUSE Wireless :: GNOME 3 Broke AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter - Could Not Make A Connection

Apr 23, 2011

I own an ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC. It has an Atheros Communication, Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. 03:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01) 03:00.0 0280: 168c:002b (rev 01) I cannot see any SSIDs including my home Verizon FiOS 802.11 G WPA2-AES-TKIP encrypted network. I went to Starbucks to try to connect to their free Wi-Fi and I could not make a connection. How do I solve this problem so that I can connect to a SSID of my choice and make a wireless connection while using GNOME 3?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Connection Working, Network Appears In List, But Does Not Connect To It?

Mar 16, 2011

I'm having some problems with my wireless connection. I'm on Ubuntu 10.04, on a HP ProBook 4520s, with a RaLink RT3090 wireless network card. I installed the drivers (hopefully correctly), the wireless seems to work correctly, it scans and finds networks, but when I try to connect to one, it times out after some time, while still attempting to connect. I also have a wired connection that works correctly and without problems. Other computers that try to connect to said wireless network manage to do so without any problems, so this has left me a bit baffled, since, like I said, everything seems to be in order.

I'm a new Ubuntu user, so please tell me what other information I need to provide in order to easily and successfully facilitate troubleshooting this, because it is, as you can imagine, quite aggravating, having a laptop that needs to be connected to the internet through a cable.

Debian Hardware :: USB Connection Missing In /var/log/messages

Jan 22, 2010

I'm running GNU/linux systems on all my PCs: Debian unstable, Ubuntu 9.10, and use Clonezilla (alternative based on Ubuntu Karmic), SystemRescueCD (beta and stable) to diagnose problems if needed.

My issue is that I've got a few hard drives that I can no longer mount either under linux or Windows, but Windows at least sees all the drives whereas linux sometimes tells me absolutely nothing:

1) one drive (Seagate 250GiB AS drive) has an ext3 file system, and /var/log/messages shows me lots of lines of information for the USB connection when I attach it, including the size of the drive, but can not mount anymore. Windows too sees the drive. I haven't tried to recover data from it.

2) two drives (not mine, both 500GiB drives) have NTFS file systems. With these, when I attach them, there is not even one line of information in /var/log/messages, or in the kernel or authentication logs. However, on the same computer booted up with Windows XP SP2 the device is seen by windows, including the size. Windows cannot mount the drive, but recovery software can after about 2 weeks' running, recover virtually all the data (I let it run using each of the various options for the guessed drive geometry/file system settings).

So my question is: why would linux not even give me a single line in /var/log/messages, not even to say that something has been attached to a USB port? I'd like to believe that linux does see something but that the USB/SCSI emulation is somewhat faulty and could be improved.

I'm not sure what kernel modules I should be looking at for the physical connection control.

Networking :: Use The Laptop With The Wireless Connection To Share The Internet Connection?

Feb 4, 2010

I have two linux laptops. Currently, I'm using both of them at work, side-by-side. Now the problem is, I'm connected to a wireless router, but the wireless only works on one of the laptops. So I'm stuck with one laptop that has no access to the internet. Both machines do, however, have working ethernet nic cards. So, I was wondering if I could use the laptop with the wireless connection to share the internet connection with my other linux machine and access the internet on both of them. Or as an alternative, just use the internet on the machine without wireless and be able to switch back and forth, that would increase my productivity like 30 fold.

General :: Could Not Read Network Connection List

May 30, 2010

I recently (like yesterday) decided to put linux on my laptop because I'm annoyed with windows. However after formatting my hard drive I seem to have an error message at the same point in windows xp and linux when attempting to log on. I have abandoned windows completely and intend to only run Linux on my laptop however after I type my password the following message pops up:

There was an error setting up inter-process communications for KDE. The message returned by the system was:

Could not read network connection list.

/home/jtb360/.DCOPserver_Josh Laptop__0

Please check that the "dcopserver" program is running!

I have attempted to delete the only dcopserver file I can find and ran some suggested commands at the command prompt (I haven't used one since Windows 3.1) to remove an ICE file in hopes that it would recreate the file and run properly after reboot and neither effort prevailed. My next step is dropping it from escalating heights until it either works or dies.

Debian :: Gnome Music Player Client Refused Connection?

Jan 22, 2011

I'm building a music server using an Alix board with Voyage linux installed on that. The Alix board is attached to my laptop, running Debian, and the laptop acts as the file server via NFS.

I have MPD installed and configured on the Alix board, and have configured NFS on the Alix board to look for the directory where my music files are on the laptop.

I'm directly connecting the Alix board and the Laptop with a crossover cable as I don't want internet access - this is purely for storing and playing my FLAC files via the hi fi. As a result I've setup static IP addresses on both the Alix board and the Laptop, using as the Laptop address and for the Alix board address. Both the Laptop and Alix board have a netmask of

The Laptop /etc/network/interfaces output is

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static


1. Comment out the "bind to any address = "any" line in the mpd.conf, but that didn't solve it.

2. I'm wondering if I need to setup my routing tables so that it uses a static route, but I don't think that will help as I'm not connecting via a router.

The Laptop is an IBM Thinkpad and not a Mac (I've read about people with Mac's having problems like this).

As far as I know I don't have any firewalls - The Debian install is just disks 1 and 2, and I haven't installed any firewalls (but not sure if Debian comes with one as standard?) The Alix board has the Voyage distribution specifically for Alix and I'm certain that doesn't have anything like a firewall built into it as Voyage is a very stripped down linux kernel.

Debian Configuration :: 8.0 With GNOME 32bit - WiFi Connection With WPA2

Apr 12, 2016

I'm using Debian 8 with GNOME 32bit. I installed a driver with ndiswrapper for my old D-Link DWL-G650M.

If i using the default network manager to connect with a Free wifi the connection works fine. But if the wifi have the password the connection doesn't work.

I. using my phone Android to create the Router-Wifi like this:

SSID: AndroidAP5
Password: BillyBob
Encryption(the one allowed): WPA2 PSK

With network manager gnome is impossible to connect. I changed in setting the password type with WPA2 but the system doesn't connect.

I tried to connect manually and i updated the file /etc/network/interfaces as the follow:

Code: Select allauto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-driver wext
wpa-ssid AndroidAP5
wpa-ap-scan 1
wpa-proto RSN
wpa-pairwise CCMP
wpa-group CCMP
wpa-key-mgmt WPA-PSK
wpa-psk 18[...]

After this I tried to execute the follow command :

Code: Select all/etc/init.d/networking restart

And the system returns:

Code: Select all[  ok  ] Restarting networking (via systemctl): networking.service

but nothing else happens. The internet connection doesn't work. The Android phone not detect PC connection IN.

Debian Configuration :: WiFi Connection Which Then Is Sent To A Wired Connection

Sep 22, 2015

The situation: The office has a WiFi network on one DSL line, which is used for our VoIP call center, and a wired network for our internal network and the majority of web surfing/traffic . Part of the office must be temperature controlled/monitored - we have a rather nice digital thermometer which is WiFi enabled.I have a Debian Wheezy box with a WiFi card and ethernet connection

What I'm trying to accomplish:Connect wifi enabled thermometer to WiFi network so it can automatically send temp updates (currently I have to do it manually via USB)Have the Wheezy box accept the downloaded file then send it to a back up server in the wired network

Side things that may be useful : Prefer to use wired connection for internet and apt and suchWiFi connection will really just be used for connecting to the thermometer

This [URL] .... topic got me thinking that there might be a way to bring the two networks together, but I don't know if that will wreak havoc on things. I know, the Windows and Mac OS don't like having ethernet and wifi at the same time, might Linux be better for this?

v&n had this to offer in the prior thread [URL] .... which I'll be doing more research on.

Debian Hardware :: Wireless Card Lag During And After Connection

Dec 11, 2014

Since few days, I have a problem with my wireless card on some access points. For example I try to connect on WPA2/PSK AP and there are 7/8sec between dhcp discover and dhcp offer. After getting an ip address, ping between my laptop and AP is ~100ms.. AP is near 1m. When trying to ping, 80% packets lost and latency is ~ 400ms.

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Won't Make Connection After Upgrade?

May 15, 2010

I have a Dell Mini 9 with a Broadcom wireless adapter. I've had it working for months on Debian Sid, but recently I updated the entire OS to get KDE 4.4 (I also went from a 2.6.30 to a 2.6.32 kernel). Something in that upgrade caused wireless to cease to work properly. The problem is similar to the one described in this thread, but no resolution is mentioned there: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=50892 I've gone through all the steps to install the STA drivers/wl module for it, and it basically appears to be working. Using wicd, I can see all the wireless networks in the area.

The problem occurs when trying to connect. When I try to connect to my WPA wireless network, it eventually fails claiming a bad password. When I turned the wireless network into an unsecured network, it eventually fails claiming it's unable to get an IP. I've also tried at the command line with wpa_supplicant and it initially appears to work but in fact it hasn't. I've also got Kubuntu 10.04 installed on this machine, and it can connect without issue (using the proprietary driver that Ubuntu's hardware driver manager allows one to use).Does anyone know what has caused this? I even tried the earlier kernel, so that's not it.

Debian Hardware :: No Wireless Connection For New Lenovo X1 Carbon

Mar 27, 2015

I could not get wireless connection during the Debian Testing (LXDE) installation and am wondering how I can setup wireless connection now. Here are the details:

- Hardware: Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon (3rd gen., 2015, core i7, 256GB, WHQD display)

- For installation, I used [URL] .... -> debian-testing-amd64-lxde-CD-1.iso

- During the installation process, I received a message that the following files are missing: iwlwifi-7265-8.ucode, iwlwifi-7265-9.ucode (strangely (to me), they were mentioned twice, so 4 files). I was asked to provide them on a USB stick

- I went to [URL] ...., downloaded firmware-nonfree_0.43.tar.gz and put the files iwlwifi-7265-8.ucode- and iwlwifi-7265-9.ucode- on a USB stick (FAT32 formatted). They were not recognized. Also not after renaming precisely to the file names I was asked for (what should I have done in this case?)

- I then simply continued the installation (flawlessly) without internet connection

- How can I now set up wireless connection?

I'm new to Debian but an Ubuntu user for 3 years. I tried to use commands from Ubuntu (ipconfig...) to figure out more, but they were not available.

i've searched around on the debian user forum archives and the internet but have yet to find a solution for this. it seems most people have just installed the firmware-iwlwifi package and then wlan was working.

i had ubuntu installed on this machine before with wlan running, so i know that there is nothing wrong with my hardware.

Debian :: Wireless Connection Dropping Out Constantly Or Failing Authentication?

Mar 12, 2011

Using Wicd and it keeps dropping out or telling me "bad password" when the password is in fact correct. I even know it works because the first couple of times it worked, but the connection wasn't sustained for more than a few seconds each time. My reasoning is my wireless is functional in Ubuntu, there's no reason it shouldn't be in Debian. Wireless network card is ASUS PCE-N13. Ralink driver is installed. WPA-supplicant is installed. Gnome Network Manager is also present, though I've heard that it doesn't support my particular situation.

It seems I must install and configure ebtables before sharing my wireless connection to ethernet port. Is it true? (But why the article on Ubuntu community doesn't mention it?) Or I just made some mistakes?
