Networking :: No Connection With WEP Encryption While WPA Works
Dec 16, 2009
There is a strange thing going out there in my box, I've tested b43-fwcutter on wpa-psk encrypted network, and there was no problem connecting (my card is broadcom 4318), recently I was trying to connect to WEP encrypted network without success. Network connection tested on other laptops (Vista, XP machines)so there is no possibility that the key isn't valid.
enable WPA encryption on my wireless connection? Wireless networks are detected and listed, so the wireless card is functional in the most basic sense, however, when going to connect to any particular network,I am not given the option of entering a WPA passphrase, only WEP, and as my router is set to use WPA, this is a problem.I am trying to get this going on a fresh Karmic install on a Toshiba A15-S157 notebook.Thus far, I have found this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/315489 which would seem to relate to my problem.I looked in my logs and saw this entry: Jan 10 16:06:35 cody-laptop firmware.sh: Cannot find firmware file 'agere_sta_fw.bin', and have since found that file, and have downloaded it to my desktop. It seems like this may be the solution, but how to exact it, therein lies my (momentary) problem.
A while back I posted [URL] a question about Ubuntu 9.10 not recognizing my WEP encryption key. The problem that I had is still essentially the same: After upgrading to 9.10 beta, then trying to upgrade using the alternate install disc for the full version (because of the same problem) I ended up having to do a completely new installation. Anyhow the problem still stands: my internet card works and it detects available wireless networks, the only thing is that after entering the key in, it will attempt to connect, then after a min or so, it will ask for the key again, ad infinitum. The upshot is that I can't connect to the internet at all. Right now I'm on Windows 7 RC.
The only thing that has changed is that I tried disabling encryption entirely, and Ubuntu was still not able to connect (I think the connection just timed out after a few minutes). I should add that I have Verizon FiOS, an Actiontec router, and my computer (since it is far away from the router) connects through a Hawking_300N extender. Right now I am using Windows 7 RC (which unfortunately expires in a little over a week), so I can access the internet through Windows, and check for any posts, but I can't immediately provide any command outputs, I'd have to restart, and that would take a few minutes. Further, I have tried both Network Manager and WICD, both of which produced the same results. I have not tried any WPA encryption mainly because the router is shared, and I don't to mess with everyone using the router unnecessarily.
I want to share my internet connexion via ad-hoc WiFi. If it's unsecured, it works fine, but when I use WPA encryption, it doesn't work anymore! I can connect from my iPod touch, but no internet. I connect to the internet from my laptop, via eth0 I want to share my internet connection via wlan0 I have no idea what's wrong
I'm trying to do a SSH connection between my home and work PC both machines are running ubuntu 10.04. I have read all the comunity documentation at [URL] from Work PC. I went on to the web site what is my ip address and noted down the number, From Home i opened a terminal and typed: pnig (ip address). to which their was no reply, now i'm assuming i need to configure the works router to except connection requests, is this Correct?
Also what information do i need from my works network and how do i get it? I understand that I need the routers expernal ip address, but how do i referiance a specified computer after that address? What program do i use in ubunu and how is that information applied to it?
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 desktop on my desktop in dual boot with Windows 7.
Heres my problem, I am unable to connect to the Internet even though my wired Ethernet connection says it is connected normally. The wierd thing about this is that I also have a wireless card in my desktop and when I connect through that I am able to connect to the Internet. I am connecting to a router that is functioning as a repeater to my main router/cable modem. I have tried to solve this myself but am having no luck. Ironically, earlier today suddenly my ethernet connection worked for a few minutes without me modifying anything.
The output of some terminal commands are below.
However a pint to that ip address (my router) is successful.
Hosts.allow and hosts.deny are both fine (not blank but no entries)
My problem is the following:I can only connect to the internet and download through the FTP, but not through HTTP.I am in a hospital at this moment and have a netbook (Lemote Yeelong). Also there is a computer here with internet access.I would like to access the internet by using the cable from the computer.I configured my netbook just like the local computer (same host name, same MAC address, DHCP), just to be sure.I can ping google.com and I also can download from ftp.debian.org though ftp.However, when I try to connect to google.com through epiphany, it just loads and loads without success
It's been a while since i've been trying to deal with this problem but it was useless. I've found many related problems to this, most unsolved and those who had solution wouldn't work for me. I have few mates who have the same problem and still didn't find a solution as well. Here's the problem:
Both on my Desktop and Laptop, the network manager won't recognize that there is a cable pluged on the computer so that it would start my connection. The solution to make it work is pretty simple and its everywhere: use pppoeconf.
Altough that does the trick to make my internet work, i get another problem that i found out to be related to this one, which is: I can't use VPN. Which make me assume that one problem is related to the other, is that on my laptop, which has wireless internet, ubuntu will recognize it and then i can simple use vpn. My desktop, on the other hand, isn't that lucky and does not have wireless, so i can't just use vpn. So far, i've been using vpn on windows when needed, but switching systems is really a pain, not to say i'd rather do that on ubuntu.
Few other suggested solutions were to use 'wicd' and other network managers, altough for some people that did work accoding to what i saw on boards, that didn't really work out for me as well. Wicd coldn't recognize it either. Other suggestion was to check on some txt file on ubuntu, erase few information and let it 'fill up' automatic, it didn't work as well(sorry i don't remember all details on this one).
This problem happened on: First, wubi for ubuntu 9.04 Ubuntu 9.04(normal install.) Ubuntu 9.10 Happened both on my Desktop and my notebook, but the same version i installed on both of them were used on other computers and they did work on them so i strongly believe it has to do with the os itself.
I have a usb modem which I plug into my ubuntu 10.10 system for a dial-up service. The modem is recognised by wvdial and dials properly, but the connection is not established.I get "Unable to run /usr/sbin/pppd" (although pppd is certainly in /usr/sbin), followed by "Check permissions of specify a 'PPPD Path' option in wvdial.conf", and finally "Connected, but carrier lost", then it gives up.
The problem I have is when I install 10.10 I get no wired connection my wifi works great, just no wired connection. I don't have WiFi where I am right now. It works fine when I run off the dvd , but when I install it i get nothing. I have tried static ip, reinstalling, reinstalling drivers. Don't know what else to do. I have a Dell Inspiron 1720. The ethernet is a broadcom 440x.
I am a non-techie, have been gratefully using Ubuntu 8.10 for a few years for the basics: email, web, documents, photos. I have somehow lost my internet connection, but strangely my email still works...!?!? My router is showing all the correct green lights, but I cannot get to any url. I am posting this thread via work (windows) pc. I have searched on this forum and in anticipation have done as much homework as possible, see below.I have a Netgear wired router. I cannot find Network manager on the menus and tried this from the terminal:
network-manager bash: network-manager: command not found networkmanager
I have Fedora 13 installed on my Fujitsu Siemens Laptop. I can only connect to my wireless router when the laptop is close to it. When I try using the laptop in the next room, it keeps asking for the password and eventually disconnects after 3 or 4 attempts. The wireless connection worked fine in Windows XP.
As of now, my internet works fine when connected with an ethernet cable.The problem is it doesnt seem like my wireless is working at all.The led light is orange, (its usually blue when it connects) and I cannot see my home dsl network.Is thereany specific troubleshooting steps I should take?HP dv6000 laptopwireless card: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN
I installed Ubuntu (10.04) today and it has gone smoothly except for the fact that I can't connect to the Internet when in Ubuntu (connection works fine in Windows XP). I am using a wireless USB card (Linksys WUSB600N) to connect.
The weird thing is that the card detects all the local networks, asks me for a password to my network, and it even says it is connected to my network after I put the password in -- but when I open Firefox no pages will load.
There is another weird quirk as well: Ubuntu will not restart or shut down properly (it hangs around indefinitely with the little white / orange dots going across the screen) unless I first remove the wireless card from the USB slot. But that doesn't bother me as badly as the lack of Internet.
Ubuntu 9.04 with working wlan. I had to restart router & wap. It doesn't seem to ever retry to connect. I know my router & wap are good, I have wireless working on other laptop (running Puppy) I had to go into 'edit connections' in drop down and use 'wireless' tab then edit 'wireless connection 1' and hit 'apply' is there a better way to do this? also, no connections show up with command 'iwconfig' edit: with ifconfig, eth1 si showing data my ip address and packets sent & rcvd. I think I'll try do duplicate this event and use 'ifconfig eth1 down' and then up again to see if it reconnects.
I'm running Fedora 12 on an Acer Aspire One with KDE. The built-in wireless works without a problem EVERYWHERE except at work. It's a shared wireless connection using WPA/WPA2 security.I can connect but it's "hit-and-miss" if I can do anything with it. Somedays it works well for a few minutes then has a period of inactivity - then slow - randomly receives...It worked flawlessly when the computer was running Windows7 no one else has connectivity issues but I'm the only one using Linux.
I had some trouble with the netinst CD and I had to install lenny with the 6DVDs instead. My internet connection only works after I edit the interfaces and resolv.conf files manually. So my question is: can I do that from the netinst CD before it actually needs the connection to install everything? (otherwise I'll just need to use the DVDs.
I am trying to set up an ftp server on my home machine so a friend and I can exchange large files. I have set up pure-ftp server and gftp client.Pure-ftp works fine behind my Dlink DSL 2740B router using host name '192.168.1.100' but not over the internet using host name '80.47.xxx.xxx' I get the message
Looking up 80.47.xxx.xxx Trying 80.47.xxx.xxx:21 Cannot connect to 80.47.xxx.xxx: Connection refused Operation cancelled
I have set up port forwarding as per the attachment.I haven't set up a software firewall and my iptables -L looks like:
The username I am using is part of "ftpgroup" and is the same user that works behind the router.Putting the computer in the DMZ doesn't help.I have a similar problem with SSH so I assume the problem is with the router.Other threads suggest the culprits should be port forwarding or a firewall but I can't see what is wrong.
I've installed Lucid Lynx in both kubuntu and xubuntu variants, and experienced the same problem, (Note I'm also still running 9,04,on the same computer, trouble free). With 10.04, the problem is that sound playback software works initially, but drops the connection with the sound driver randomly, at times varying from a few seconds to a couple of minutes. It seems to happen regardless of whether Alsa or PulseAudio is set as default. This happens with Movie Player, VLC, Audacity, and with Flash in Firefox - they all appear to start normally, with sound, but soon fail. (Again, I don't have this problem with earlier releases, using the same computer) I know little about sound configuration.
My promlem is that i wrote a few simple script to monitor the network connection as follows: script 1 "netmonitor.sh"
Quote: #!/bin/bash # /usr/local/bin/netmonitor.sh ping -c 1 "$HOST" > /dev/null 2>&1 if [ $? = 0 ]; then echo "`date` Network is ready!" |
Is it possible, that if system don't use the connection after getting the DHCP lease, it close the connection automaticly? Anyway it works ok, but i don't want to owerwrite my router's flash in every 5 seconds with te new lease, my script probably defeat it soon if i don't do anything
My laptop able to detect wireless. I try to access it with a correct password. However, it keep prompts me the password is wrong. But I was able to connect the wireless using other PC with the same password. I am pretty sure the something wrong with the WEP encryption of the F15.
I'm on an Acer Aspire One.Clean install of 9.10.I was using 9.10 and my wireless was working fine.Then for no reason it would not connect.So I decided to reboot my router and reinstall ubuntu.Still does not work.I have figured out that it seems to be WPA encryption that is at fault.When I turn it off on my Linksys the netbook connects fine, turn it back on and nada.
if i try to use a static address then the laptop seems to connect but I cannot ping the router or get to the internet.If anyone has any ideas I would be grateful, I would rather use WPA than WEP.My iphone connects and this netbook connects with Windows, so I know the linksys is not at fault.
am using transimission to download torrents but when it start downloading i just can't browse anymore since my connection slows down, but when i stop downloading from transimission my connection just works fine.
I setup a mythbuntu pc with an onboard card (eth0) so I could watch and listen to movies and music stored on my other pc in the basement. Everything worked fine until we had a power outage. I turned on the pc after the outage and had no networking.
I looked and saw no link lights. I verified the network port but plugging in a laptop. I got an ip and able to connect to the internet so the port is not the issue. I plugged in a pci 10/100 card (eth1) and booted up, got link lights, but no networking and not able to even ping the gateway. I setup a static ip in /etc/network/interfaces and added a route to the gateway/router. Still nothing.
Using sudo iwlist scan, i will get a list of surrounding AP(s) around my laptop, is there a way to interpret the sudo iwlist scan results so that we can know what encryption type is the wireless network using?
Using a D-Link wireless router, trying to get it through the authentication process with the client through a D-Link DWA-125 USB wireless. When I set encryption to "none" on both ends, the router links up OK, but when I enter matching encryption settings on the router, and then in the driver data file (RT2870STA.dat) on the client side, I can't get it to authenticate. I've tried all possible combinations in the .dat file with no luck. I'm fairly well convinced that there is a bug in the .dat file settings, and that the wireless port setting need to be forced at startup through the /etc/networking/interfces file, or some such procedure, to override the settings in the .dat file.
