General :: Setup Wireless Networking On Oracle Linux / Dell Laptop?
Jun 6, 2010
have Unix and Windows experience. So will need some hand-holding.Need help getting my wireless network to work on my newly installed Oracle Linux on Dell laptop.Not sure what wireless card is installed, or it's mac address (though I can boot into windows and get that info I don't want to - it'll be kind of a let down if I can't fix it all thru Linux).Install has detected a Broadcom wired card, but not the wireless. Funny thing is that it detected the Bluetooth
I am using a dell laptop which has Dell 1397 802.11B/G Wireless Mini Card. I not able to connect to internet and was not able to detect what actual problem is weather card is not supported (i.e. drivers are not available) .
Also, if any one can point to exact process to connect to wireless Lan using fedora12.
My wife's laptop is Dell Inspiron 6400 running 11.04. Wireless has recently stopped working. Running rfkill list all shows dell-wifi hard blocked no soft blocked no. The fn plus F2 keys toggle status between blocked no and blocked yes, but network manager still can't see network. I've tried removing the Broadcom STA driver - no joy.
This is not strictly a Linux question, although I am interested in any Linux cautions as to what to avoid that could impact my Linux on the computer in question. I have Linux (openSUSE-11.1) setup on dual boot with MS-Vista on a Dell Studio 1537 laptop. My wife is "fed up" with Vista, and has asked that I replace Vista with WinXP on this Laptop. I would like to do this over the Christmas holiday break. The laptop's 1 year support warrantee has expired. can someone explain to me the function of the two Dell /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2 partitions ?
This laptop was purchased with MS Vista installed, with 3 primary partitions (small /dev/sda1 (called "Dell Utility" ),10GB /dev/sda2 (unknown - appears to be some sort of Dell backup/recovery partition ? ), /dev/sda3 (MS Vista which had the remainder of the 250GB drive, although I have subsequently reduced this to 69GB ).
Again, I note /dev/sda3 is the 69GB MS Vista partition (I reduced it to 69GB when I installed Linux (openSUSE-11.1)). I also believe it may be in /dev/sda3 where I should plan on installing winXP. Currently I have openSUSE-11.1 Linux in /dev/sda4 (divided into extended partitions, with /dev/sda5 (swap), /dev/sda6 (root), and /dev/sda7 (/home) for Linux and it works well. I plan to keep openSUSE-11.1 Linux when Vista is replaced by WinXP Can I remove and merge /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, and /dev/sda3 and replace them with one partition for WinXP ?
Or am I better OFF keeping /sdev/sda1 (Dell Utility) ? and am I better off to keep /dev/sda2 (some sort of Vista ?? recovery) ? and only put winXP on /dev/sda3 ? Aside from the MBR with Grub being destroyed (when I replace Vista with winXP) is there anything else I need to be careful of wrt keeping my openSUSE-11.1 Linux install on this laptop ?
I've also sent a slightly different version of this post as a question to the Dell Support mailing list. p.s. for information, here is some output from Linux commands showing the contents:
These problems just started the last couple of days but I have been using Lucid 10.04 for a month now. My wireless Signal varies in strength wildly. I sitting at home, not 20 feet from my router. I never had these problems before Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04. I am running both Network Manager and Wicd.
Errors: 1. Wicd states "Wrong Password" which is not true. 2. Dropping off-line for no reason, sometimes 3 or 4 times a minute and sometimes it works fine for hours. 3. Firefox 3.6.3 Automatically Checking "Work Offline"!?
I have the Proper Wireless Drivers. I have not changed my wireless settings, channel or WPA for 8 months now so I know thats not it.
I have the required drivers from this website: Broadcom.com - 802.11 Linux STA driver As far as I can tell I have followed all the instructions given by the readme, I have all kernel packages that I had understood to be required but when I try to make the Makefile I am given this:
borgs0@linux-yjl1:~/hybrid_wl> make KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd` make: Entering directory `/lib/modules/2.6.34-12-desktop/build' make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop. make: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/2.6.34-12-desktop/build' make: *** [all] Error 2
I'm try to setup a wireless network with my linksys wireless router and my HP laptop dual booting Vista & Suse 11.2. I have the vista networked, just fine. Where I can share files and the printer connected to my desktop. But I want to be able to use Suse in the same way, full time and to stray away from Vista. My wife and kids like easy. So I'm trying to transform them and show them something new.
I have got a Laptop running Arch Linux and a Macbook. I have got a wireless network via my broadband router and get acccess both laptops remotely via ssh and sftp.I have been trying to set up NFS on both laptops with th intention of backing up one laptop to the other. I have installed the necessary file on both the laptops and have also set up the exports file as per instructions on the Arch Linux wiki.
I have two network cards in my computer (Debian). One (eth0) is connected to the router which is connected to the internet, the other one (eth1) is connected to my laptop (Gentoo). Now I want to surf the web both on my computer and on my laptop. I obeyed some tutorials "Linux as router":
2. Laptop has IP 192.168.0.2 and this is the output of 'cat /etc/network/interfaces' on my computer:
takada:/etc/network# cat interfaces # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface
But a ping from my laptop to 192.168.1.1 (router to internet) still gives:
Currently I am installing oracle 10g release 2 with Red hat Linux 4.I am getting the following error.
Exception Name: MakefileException
Exception String: Error in invoking target 'ntcontab.o' of makefile '/home/oracle/oracle_10.2/network/lib/ins_net_client.mk'. In forum I saw this kind of post and I did all the steps, then also getting the error.
I have installed Fedora 15 on a Acer Aspire one computer laptop. I have some missing windows for Network settings windows.First issue:When setting wep or wpa or wapa2 there is no windows to type in the passphase and key so the laptop can connect to the wireless netgear wireless router.Second issue:Once a password is typed in the one line access there is no way one can reset what has been typed in. Gassp! Check this out....one can highlite wireless and options does not light up. When one highlite wired options lightup and you can click on the tab 801.11something like that for wireless but this is for the wired not for wireless.....I know because I have tried it and had to reinstall fedora software because I could not remove the password and user name
I'm currently installing Slackware 13.1 on my old Sony VAIO. It's got a wireless card sticking out the side of it, and I just want to make sure I set it all up correctly. I got to the screen where it's asking: static IP DHCP loopback And I'm not sure which one to pick.
This will allow you to use iphones' data plan as a wireless access point. Currently setup instructions are only posted for windows/mac using a helper app to configure the laptop. Here are the instructions I followed to setup iphonemodem2 to work under Fedora 10: Download iPhoneModem2 from a jailbroken iphone using Cydia. Create a new wireless network on Fedora with the following settings:
a) SSID = "iPhoneModem" b) Mode = Ad-hoc c) IPv4 Method = Automatic (DHCP)
Connect laptop and iphone to new wireless network. Start iphonemodem app on iphone. The "traffic" does not update; the "status" says "Wrong Wifi Network"; and the signal strength says 0%. However, the network connection should be there as long as you have a data signal to your service provider.
I have a SBS '08 server, and it handles all FSMO roles, and every service known to man. I'm trying to shift those to other computers, but we haven't got the capital for another server. I know Linux is a capable OS and has the ability to run DNS, but I'm not too familiar with linux. How could I set up DNS on linux so that it is a redundant DNS server?

I plan to install Fedora on my laptop. But I just confuse which one is right for me. My laptop is Dell Latitude E6420 (ODM CTO) Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2620M (2.7GHz, 4M cache) with Turbo Boost Technology With 6 GB Ram
how to make intel 3945 to work on RHEL5 ? Apparently that hardware is not officially supported by Red Hat so they do not provide drivers. what happens on my PC is after login I do not have the wireless card led is off and when I try to start the wireless connection I get
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
I'm not a real linux expert but I do use it since long time.
I am brand new to the world of Ubuntu 10.10. I have an acer revo 1600 that was running XP until this weekend, when it crashed. I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my machine, and cannot get it to find my Hiro H50191 (which runs on realtek drivers) wireless usb. I run strictly wireless, with no way to run an ethernet cable directly into the computer, unless i can somehow use my shared network off of an old Dell laptop running XP.
What Linux version should i get if i want to revive an old laptop? Im talking about a Dell Inspiron 1501, with a Mobile AMD Sempron Processor 3500+789 MHz, 448 MB RAM, running on Windows XP 2002 professional edition.
