Ubuntu Networking :: Use One Wireless Router To Connect/detect To Another Wireless Router?

Aug 1, 2010

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.

General :: Distros Will Not Connect To Wireless Router?

Jun 12, 2011

There's only one thing preventing me from completely making the switch from Lose-dows to Linux: inability to connect my laptop wirelessly. I'm currently using an old IBM Thinkpad with an Intel Pentium III, 1.13 GHz with 384 megs of RAM. The wireless is through a Belkin USB dongle (model: F5D8053, v3) and a Netgear Duo Wireless-N Router (model: WNDR3300). Let's say, for sake of argument, I'm using Linux Mint Julia. It clearly must recognize the USB dongle, because it can detect all the other networks in the area, including the Netgear. But it won't connect to it, or any of the secured ones.

So what's the deal? It'll connect when connected directly, so it's not the computer. Or is it? All I know is I'll have to wait til I get an LFC interface (LFC=Long F**king Cable) before I want to connect Linux to the net.

General :: Connect A Wireless Router To Another Access Point?

Aug 19, 2011

I have a complicated situation due to my goals and network structure. I have in mind a potential solution, a bridge, but I do not know whether it is feasible or what hardware it will require.

The network:

My apartment community provides residents with free Internet access through an ancient T1 line. We do not have the option of other Internet providers, so having a router and modem in the home are not an option. The T1 line is split among some 24 switches, one for each building, and each switch has one port per floor. At each floor, there is a D-link WAP, and each has a separate SSID and WEP key. Additionally, they control access at the switch level using Access Control.

My goals:

I'm used to being in control of my networked environment. I like to have friends over often, and most of them have a laptop, a smart phone, or both, which makes Access Control a pain. I don't want to have to think ahead and get their MAC addresses to the IT consultant while he's here during business hours. My wife and I have 6 devices, two of which require an Ethernet connection.
I use a few applications for streaming that utilize UDP (I'm not sure if the WAPs are smart enough to even handle this) and I don't like having my traffic muddled with my neighbors.

I should note that I tried extending the network with my Airport Extreme router, which apparently only works with other Apple devices. I've also looked into WDS, but that seems to require an unlikely amount of cooperation from the IT consultant on site.

The potential solution: a Linux server that acts as a router. Ideally, it could act as a webserver for a small static site as well, but let's focus on the routing. I'd like to bridge two NICs and use masquerading (Internet Connection Sharing). The public interface would connect to the WAP using WEP. The private interface would allow up to 8 devices to connect to the server.

It seems easy enough to configure the public interface, and even to bridge the connections. What I've never done before is purchase a wireless card that can accept multiple clients. Maybe they can all do this?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Card - WEP Encryption For Wireless Router Not Allow Me To Connect

May 5, 2011

wlan0 Authentication capabilities :

WPA
WPA2
CIPHER-TKIP
CIPHER-CCMP

Those are my authentication capabilities, obviously. I am using a WEP encryption for my wireless router and according to this, it will not allow me to connect. Is there anyway to allow that? The wireless card works just fine in Windows, even on the same network encryption type. Using a Intel Wireless/Pro 4965 ag. Note* this is my mother's router and whatnot. She won't change it the encryption type.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Intel 3945abg Wireless Network Card Cannot Connect To Router Automatically

Apr 8, 2010

I clicked "Network Settings", and I found that the ip address was wrong, which is "192.168.1.10/24", and netmask field is empty, so I modifed the configuration file located in /etc/sysconfig/network, named ifcfg-wlan0, added one line(NETMASK= '255.255.255.0'), saved it and reboot the system. After rebooting the system, I still found the ip address is wrong and netmask field is empty, so I have to use ifup command to activate my card manually every time the system starts.

Ubuntu Networking :: Tenda W322P Wireless Card Crashing Wireless Router On Connect

Jun 30, 2011

I installed a Tenda W322P wireless card in my dual-boot PC running both Windows XP and Ubuntu 11.04. The card worked straight out of the box on XP, but does not function correctly under Ubuntu. My apologies for any missing/irrelevant information, I am having to post this from the Windows boot so the Ubuntu settings are not directly available at the same time as internet access.I followed the process detailed here htURL...to install and configure the driver (I believe from reading other sites that this card is the Ralink RT3062 chipset), blacklisted the original RT2860 driver that was in use (couldn't even get the card to scan for wireless networks with the default driver) and restarted the interface.

Since then, sudo iwlist scan can find my wireless router but when I attempt to connect to it, it seems to enter a loop of requesting the WEP key then pausing for a while before re-requesting the key. I know I have the key value correct because it is copied and pasted from the same text file I used to copy and paste into the passkey field on the Windows boot. Attempting to connect to the router using Ubuntu also has the rather unfortunate side-effect of crashing the wireless router, killing off all other device connections until the router has been reset.

Ubuntu :: How Do I Connect To Wireless Router

Sep 27, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on one of my computers and the only way I can connect to the internet with it is through a wire. I have a wireless router and I want to know how I can use the internet wirelessly on that machine. The router is set up correctly because I am on the internet on my laptop (its a mac with OS X) and it is not connected by a wire.I also want to know if Verizon DSL works with Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To Wireless Router

Mar 17, 2011

I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and am really happy. I want to sort the wireless conection out now. I have been through this forum for hours today and can't get it working. I have a Broadcom wireless card, which seems to be working fine, but I am not 100% convinced.I have attached the output of some of the commands that I have seen referred to on here.

I am using the wired connection on the same router, so the router connects fine.I click on the network icon and I see the skyNNNN router in the list. I have tried connecting to it and it asks me for my password, which I provide then nothing happens until it asks me again.I have removed the security from the router and I then see the same skyNNNN router without a
lock icon. I try to connect and it still fails.I am not using an access list on the router, so there is no issue with the mac address.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Connect Wireless Through Wired Router?

Aug 13, 2011

I have searched and found no answer to this one. I have a Linksys DSL router BEFSR41 (wired) which works great. I recently got a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband router. Which also works great with my Dell mini 10 netbook running 10.04. I have two computers (wired) also running 10.04, what I want to do is use both routers with only one internet DSL connection. I have the wired (Master Router) connected to the wireless (Slave Router) and I fire up the Dell it sees it and connects but I can't connect to the internet. I can connect through my network and share files through all 3 machines. Do I need to reset the wireless, to enjoy the internet? If so the wireless came without instructions or CD.

Networking :: Can't Connect To Wireless Router Using Ubuntu 9.04

Sep 18, 2009

I'm trying to connect to a new Belkin wireless router, but wicd refuses to connect. I've been reading some of the other threads but they haven't made much sense as the hardware is different.

The output from the iwconfig command is as follows:

When I ran lspci it told me I had a RaLink RT2800 802.11n PCI Network Controller. On the box it says it "Supports the most popular systems" and mentions Linux. I'm using a 63 character WPA2 password, which has been copied from a USB key, so I know that is correct.

Networking :: Connect To Internet Through A (wireless) Router?

Jul 30, 2010

I connect my internet using pppoe to may DSL modem with bridging mode, and it goes fine until I try to put a wireless router between my PC and the modem. After I configure both modem and the router, I can run my wireless network fine by connecting it from a laptop, but my PC is unable to reach the modem at this configuration.

PC has address 192.168.2.100
Router has address 192.168.2.2
Modem has address 192.168.2.1
all with netmask 255.255.255.0

With bridging configuration in modem and automatic detect configuration in the wireless router, the wireless network run well, except the PC cannot ping the Modem saying that

Code:

root@firefly:~# ping 192.168.2.1
PING 192.168.2.1 (192.168.2.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
From 192.168.2.100 icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable

Looks like my PC, which has Slackware 13.0, don't know how to reach the modem even they are physically connected.

1. how can I configure the modem, PC, and router so that the PC can reach the router? Do I need to do add route gateway from the PC?

2. How can I configure internet connection from the PC (before I use PPPoE)?

3. How can I configure the modem, PC, and router so that the wireless network is on?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect After Connecting To A Wireless Router

Oct 30, 2010

Ubuntu 10.10 connects to a DSL modem without any problems - I mean I just plugged it in and it worked - GREAT I bought a wireless router so I could connect my netbook and now my Ubuntu machine which is simply using a cable from the wireless router now DOES NOT connect. I tried a windows machine on the wired connection from the wireless router and it connects without a problem. OF course if I remove the wireless router from the chain, i.e. simply connect directly to the modem it works straight away.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Connect To Wireless Router

Aug 12, 2011

Firstly, the actual problem I'm having is that when I start my computer (netbook) up in the morning and try to connect to the router (wirelessly) it just... doesn't work. I've used it before, at full signal strength, and it was completely fine. It never disconnects me or anything - but if I shut down my computer, like I do overnight, when I start it up again often it's hardly getting a signal at all (or so it says) and when it tries to connect it makes the connecting animation and occasionally flashes to a circular thing like firefox's loading animation. Eventually it just fails.

I try restarting my computer, but it doesn't seem to help. The last time, I had to wait until the signal looked "full" again, then delete the settings in "edit connections" for that router and only then would it let me log in again, even though I was using the same password from the same computer (even in the same place). That only seems to help when the connection looks "full" though, and even then, not always. Normally I'd try resetting the router, but I can't because it's locked in the next room (I rent a room here and the guy with the key is rarely around) but honestly I don't think the router is causing this, for a few reasons:............

Networking :: Cannot Connect To Router Via Wireless - Connection Failed

Jan 6, 2011

I've been at this the last 3 hours now or so. I am not a very good with Linux, I am fine with all other areas. I have this laptop, with a Intel Pro 2200BG card. The idea was to install a lxde lightwieght on it and use PCLINUXOS, because its "easy". This computer is for internet browsing and thats it. Under the Network Center -- I can see all networks, including neighbours. When I try to connect to my router via Wireless, I get connection failed over and over.

I then tried doing all the following:
Changing the router from WEP to, WPA, WPA2 personal, WPA2 Enterprise
Changing the SSID, broadcasting to ON, changing the SSID name
I've used various different passwords, and reset the router now about 50 times. I am connecting to my Router (as Ive changed the SSID and noticed it picks up the new name). (Yes I can see the correct MAC addreess). Yes I am on the right channel, all good here.

My Nintendo DS is connecting fine with all the changed settings now. The wireless card worked fine under Windows XP (However I just removed the operating system since I really had no need for it). I've tried every other mode, it works wired. Like I had explained above, I downloaded a what I thought was an easy verison (distro), I was really hoping to get away from the crazy windows life with crazy errors and instability.

I did try enabling display log, and doing it manually by adding a connection, etc. The log tells me about as less would a windows event log: it says
Problems occurred during the network connectivity test
This can be caused by invalid network config or problems w/ your momde / router
Reluanch, etc.

I can connect to the internet fine with wvdial and wvdialconf; heck I am even posting from my PCLinuxOS FM Distro. I want to setup an ethernet connection between two PC's, one running PCLOS 2010.11 FullMonty and the other Knoppix 6.2.0. Knoppix is fine and setting up a connection is simple but with PCLOS I have been having many problems trying to set it up. I tried using the drakconnect tool but it did not work. I tried assigning it a static IP Address but the other PC would still not pick it up and to to it all I keep getting the same error message about problems during the network connectivity test!
