General :: Establish Internet Connection - Fail In Kubuntu ?
Mar 18, 2011
I have a new clean Kubuntu just installed. I have a wireless router (access point) that I used to connect to internet in Windows 7. I plugged the internet cable into the router, connected computer to wireless network, created a new broadband connection using login and password given by the provider, and internet connection worked. I want eventually to have the same on Kubuntu.
Here are the ipconfig output from Windows with the working internet configuration:
I want to have the same thing on Kubuntu, but before that I want to be able to have at least the direct cable connection working. Had no problems setting it up on Puppy Linux, but fail in Kubuntu. Wireless connection with the router is no problem, it worked right away.
After plugging the internet cable to the network card I have this:[url] I tried to set up new wired and dsl (not sure which I need, probably DSL as it has the login and password) connections in the Network Connections window but nothing works.
Below are some internet configurations that I guess are needed:
I'm using Ubuntu for almost two years and everything has worked well till now. One day I have reinstall ubuntu in my computer, but then something went wrong. I couldn't anymore establish my internet connection. I have tried everything but nothing helped. I even reinstall my ubuntu multiple times but there was no efekt. Even when I installed Kubuntu or an older Ubuntu 10.10, there was no internet. I'm also using Windows 7 but there is always a internet connection. I didn't change any hardware on my computer, only a new AMD graphic card. I'm using wired optical Internet 10/10 MB.
I'm new in SUSE 11.4. My problem is: I'm using Alfa AWUS036H card. It's recognised and I can establish connection to my network, but cant get to Internet. I can't surf the web cos Firefox tell me that connection is timed out. Now I'm confused why I can't surf the web even if I'm connected. Also, I trayed to instal linux drivers for this card folloving Ubuntu "how to" and it just dont work.
Working in CentOS. Want to have drag-and-drop SCP access to another system.
Opened up the file manager (nautilus) and went under File -> "Connect to Server". Filed in the information, hit connect. The connection will sit forever and will never properly establish. It creates an icon on my desktop, but noting else.
If I go into terminal, su to root, open nautilus and then repeat the process as a root user, then it works successfully. Connection established after I trust the remote host. File transfer works fine.
what is occurring when I attempt to connect as my normal user?
I am trying to install tomcat (apache-tomcat-6.0.24) on a Redhat machine.Post installation, I find the url: working fine untill I click on 'Tomcat Manager' where it gives me the following message: Failed to Connect.Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost:8080.Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection.
* Could the site be temporarily unavailable? Try again later. * Are you unable to browse other sites? Check the computer's network connection. * Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.
I just got an error message and i have no clue what it means.Error: Unable to establish connection with FAM.Do you have "FAM" or "Gamin" installed and running?I installed the net cd of Lenny and it is up to date so I don't know whats up.
I have set WAN to 'bridged' mode for my D-Link DSL-G604T so that individual devices can connect directly to the internet.
A problem I now face is not being able to connect a computer running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to the internet via DSL.
The computer connects to the D-Link DSL-G604T router via wireless network connection - which is established, but I am unable to connect to DSL and I don't know why. The DSL connection doesn't even list under the network icon at the top right.
I am trying to establish an ssh connection to my server. I have a regular ssh connection working through the command line, so I know my key works and I have the port forwarding on the router correct.
When I go to Places -> Connect to Server the window comes up properly. The only problem is that the drop down menu only has one option in it for Service Type. It is Custom Location. I have had this set up in the past and there were other options there. I chose the ssh connection and everything was fine. Now it doesn't work.
I have tried to completely uninstall nautilus and reinstall it, but that didn't work. When I did uninstall it, I uninstalled gnome-session as well, and I reinstalled that one too.
I've got an Expect script that establishes a ssh connection to the iLO interface of a server. Problem is it drops me back to the local terminal and I can't enter commands to be executed on the remote host. How do I get it so it logs me into the server then leaves me connected to it?
I am trying to set up, I am having problems understanding what steps I need to take but have done the following on recommendation of help from linux forums but am not getting anywhere with what I have done. PC:
Laptop Dell latitude D610 Ubuntu Gnome 2.26.1
I currently have a wired connection to my laptop but am trying to set up wireless, I have put the antenna on the router and have a wireless network showing called NETGEAR, amongst others, which is my primary router name so i'm trying to connect to that but the actual wireless antenna is on the switching hub. For all intents and purposed assume I am a complete newbie with ubuntu and linux command line stuff, I know basics like pwd, ls and so on but need a good bit of help trying to do this. When I click on this wlan network NETGEAR I get asked for the password, on the bottom of the switching hub is a code for WLAN and I put this in, it then asks for a password for a default keyring, which I do not know. How do I find this out?
But I am still not sure what I am supposed to be doing or looking for to resolve this connection problem, not only am I not a network expert I have no knowledge of linux either and steps to follow to establish a connection.
I have a linux box (fedora) with two ethernet cards eth1 and eth2. On eth1 I successfully configured a PPPOE internet connection. Such that from the server I can browse the internet. On eth2 I wired it to a wireless router essentially to provide the wireless cloud. On eth2 I also configured dhcp, such that the Linux box is both PPPOE and DHCP server.However my clients on the LAN cannot access the Internet.
On passing the routing command I get Destination Gateway Iface 196.44.x.y 0.0.0.0 ppp0 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.0 eth2 (my subnet) 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 ppp0.
The router (functioning as a wireless access point mainly) has a fixed IP address of 192.168.1.2 and eth2 has IP address 192.168.1.1. The dhcp file running on Linux has been set with option router (Gateway) 192.168.1.1. I cannot figure out how to correctly set the routing table such that my clients on wireless can access the internet cloud. I googled and googled but no solid solution. Any suggestions?
Since a few days ago, I have too much problems to connect.When I try to connect to Internet with Firefox, the following message is printed out (, most of the times):Code:Unable to connect Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at URL...
Dual boot Vista Basic and Ubuntu 10.04 on low spec PC. I can connect to the wireless when I am next to it. I move to the room where the computer is normally used and I lose connection. I can still see it but it fails to establish a connection. Okay, sounds like it's just too far way but when I re-boot and use Vista, it works fine (1 or 2 bars, but it works). Is this a driver issue? Anything I can do apart from move my wireless router?
I am kind of new to linux and have installed the lucid lynx ubuntu distro (10.04) and then "upgraded" it to ubuntu studio but it still says is the lucid lynx. I got a Samsung Q430 laptop with the Atheros AR9285 wireless adapter.I have everything up and running EXCEPT my wireless card. The wireless card DOES work, it does see all the connections available, but when I choose to connect it does not, and keeps asking for the password.
Weird thing is that when I use my samsung galaxy tab as the wireless adapter for its 3G signal, it does seem to work fine (although really slow). I have tried looking for a solution, some say to just install the drivers, but ubuntu does not recognize anything to need a driver except the video card. I have installed linux-backports-modules-wireless-lucid-generic I have also tried the bleeding edge drivers.
After a while of experimenting by myself I came with the following, somewhat rudimentary. I managed to fix the problem by installing the windows wireless driver utility. Here is a tutorial on how to do it. So I just installed it, went to system/administration/windows wireless drivers and just installed it. Downloaded the file from here [URL]. It may not be the best way to fix it, but it does work. Still if you can use ethernet, don't hesitate to do it.
I want to transfer files from my laptop to my desktop remotely over the net. Both these computers access net via different service providers and have dynamically assigned IP addresses. If I know the IP address, I can use ssh to accomplish my task. However if I don't have physical access to the desktop, I cannot know the IP address. Is there a way by which a the desktop sends its public IP address to me so that I can establish ssh connection ?
I'm using the Network Manager DBUS API for establishing a wireless network connection. For some unknown reason , only the code for establishing a wired network connection is available. I've tried everything i can to get it running. but i'm not able to. here is the code that i'm using right now.
t "Failed to Connect Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at127.0.0.1:3580." when I try to open a Help File of one of the applications I have.My /etc/hosts file has its entries right:127.0.0.1 hostname.hostdomain hostnameMy firewall is also disabled.
nmap -sT -O localhost gives me (I have included some): 2401/tcp open cvspserver
I have had long term access to a networked HP Photosmart printer but now I get the following message:
Unable to open device hp:/net/Photosmart_C5100_series?ip=192.168.0.161.
when trying to access it.The ubuntu desktop is wired to the router as is the printer and another iMac wirelessly can still print to the HP. HPLIP status shows the icon for the printer but with a red x indicating no connection to it.The only recent network change was the removal of another router from our network. (service is DSL via a combo modem/router from service provider which previously was connected to a Dlink router which has now been removed from the chain b/c was redundant to the modem/router)
I have a strange problem where I can connect to any site except for [URL]... with the latest Firefox and Google chrome both can connect to [URL]... Using Ubuntu 10 not 7.10 FireFox: Unable to connect Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at [URL]...
* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. * If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection. * If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
Google Chrome: This webpage is not available. The webpage at [URL].. might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address. More information on this error Below is the original error message Error 2 (net::ERR_FAILED): Unknown error. Really Strange is that every other site is fine?
