Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Keeps Disconnecting And Connecting?

Feb 15, 2011

I just bought a new laptop. This one came with win7 home. The wireless works perfect. Today I installed ubuntu 10.4 next to windows. I made a first connection which went easy. But after 30 seconds it disconnects. Then it tries 30 seconds to reconnect. It reconnects and after 30 secodns or so, it disconnects again. It keeps doing this all the time on ubuntu while on windows it works without any problems. This is what sais under the device manager for my wirelesscard stuff:

Intel(R) WiFi 1000 BGN
Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter #2
Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter
Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Router Connecting ?

Jun 21, 2010

I have a computer running Ubuntu, and a MacBook Pro. I need to buy a decently cheap wireless router that I can hook up to my Ubuntu so that it will send wifi signals and I can use the wifi to go online with my MacBook Pro. I was about to get one today, but remembered how Ubuntu is picky about working with things like that. I'm only going to be using it to get signals around the house which isn't that big at all.

So what would be the cheapest and decently efficient wireless routers that I can use which Ubuntu will cooperate with?

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.

Fedora Networking :: Connecting To Wireless Router ?

May 5, 2010

When fedora initially starts up, the network manager shows all the available wireless connections available to me. However, when I select my wireless connection, it will go through the loading process where it shows the two green dots and the circular moving blue streak, then it prompts me to put in the wpa password.

This is where the trouble starts...when i input my wpa password, it will proceed to attempt to connect to my network but it never succeeds in doing so--it will keep on asking me to input my wpa password. when i finally get sick of doing it over and over again, i just hit cancel instead of retrying to connect.

After i stop trying to connect, the network manager no longer shows all the available wireless networks--the list is completely empty, and i can find no way to get the list to show up again, with the exception of restarting my computer.

I am able to connect to the internet with a wired ethernet, but id like my wireless to work.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting Intel PROSet Wireless To WEP Router?

Dec 15, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu x86 10.04 LTS onto an old Dell machine which is connected to my broadband modem and Netgear Wireless Router (WGR614 v6). The router is encrypted with 64-bit WEP and allows my System76 Pangolin Performance laptop to connect flawlessly out of the box. However, my sister runs Windows XP Professional 32-Bit on a Dell Latitude D830. This machine's wi-fi card is an Intel PROSet Wireless which recognizes the router but can't access it.

What should I do on her laptop in order for her to access the wi-fi router?

Ubuntu Networking :: EDUP Wireless Adapter Not Connecting To Router?

Jan 3, 2010

For several months I was using EDUP adapter with both my laptop that operated on Ubuntu 9.04 exclusively and a desktop that could also boot with XP. Soon after 9.10 was released I updated my laptop and was able to use the adapter to connect to the Net.Recently, I also updated the desktop but also made it exclusively a Linux machine. Unfortunately, I have been unable to get the wireless adapter to work again on the desktop.The OS recognizes the device as wlan0, and lsusb shows:Bus 003 Device 005: 0cde:0008 Z-Com Sitecom Wireless Network Adapter 100G+ WL -125The network manager recognises the availability of the wireless network and attempts to connect. After trying for a while it comes up with a dialog box "Wireless Network Authentication Required" and in response I enter the WPA password but with no success.The behaviour would indicate that I am entering the wrong password but I am not.I have checked it several times and compared with the password that works with the laptop.

Ubuntu Networking :: Internet - Router Disconnecting ?

Feb 14, 2011

My router is a Netgear router with Comcast, and after going on Ubuntu for a couple hours just doing normal things, the Internet disconnects. Then I have to restart my computer and start everything over again. I check the router and everything seems to be fine, I even unplug everything on the router first (like I am instructed to do so if this sort of thing happens) to make sure that's not what is causing the problem. It has to be the Ubuntu system.

Fedora Networking :: Fedora Locks Up Connecting By Wireless To OpenWRT Router

Nov 16, 2009

I dual boot Windows/Fedora 11 on my Dell Latitude D830 laptop, which has an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG card and I have just bought a Linksys WRT160NL wireless router. I am currently trying to set up OpenWRT linux on the router. Because of the nature of my problem I have also posted this on their forum.I am having trouble connecting to my OpenWRT install via Fedora. Things seem okay in Windows, but when I try to connect from linux my laptop locks up completely and I have to hard reboot. I previously have never had any trouble connecting to any other router with this install of Fedora.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless - Connecting To Router Using Wep Key

Feb 15, 2010

I made some tests with a router without security and my internet connexion worked without any problem. But if I activated the wep security (or wpa it is the same behaviour) suse 11.1 won't connect in any way.

I used knetwork manager and traditional ifup method, both failed to connect.

I saw, using iwconfig that in both cases (wpa or wep) I was associated with the AP but dhclient won't work in any way, I was always in the APIPA...

I checked if there weren't any access control (mac address filtering, ...) and all the settings in the router were off to give me full access. Including the firewall set to off. The DHCP feature was on in both cases.

I noticed that the firewall must be on in suse 11.1 otherwise I couldn't have any connections even if I disabled wep or wpa...

Ubuntu :: Belkin Wireless G Router Not Transmitting / Connecting?

Oct 5, 2010

Ubuntu 9.04.
Belkin Wireless G router.

Has been working fine. Today it is not. I have done nothing to it. It just keeps saying "Looking up *********" and "Cannot connect to server".

I hard wired the pc to the modem and it works fine. Hard wired the pc to the router it works fine. Running wireless, both of my computers are not connecting.

If I remember, one of the lights on the router should be lit solid, just as it is on the modem. However, all lights are blinking. The only solid light is "power".

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Keeps Disconnecting On 10.10?

Nov 8, 2010

I have always had trouble in the past getting wireless adapters and what not to start working on Ubuntu but with each 6-month upgrade most problems are fixed while new ones are made. Since Ubuntu 10.10 just came out I thought I'd give it a go and test it with my hardware.

Before 10.10 Ubuntu could not connect with my wireless device and I had to do many things with gedit and such to get it working. After I have upgraded to 10.10 Ubuntu now recognizes my wireless device and network and I can search the web...but wait here it comes.

Literally minutes after a fresh install and first connection to my network my wireless signal will drop and prompt me to reconnect. Of course the first thing comes to mind I reconnect which doesn't work so I unplug the device and replug it making it works...Two minutes later my connection drops again and so I so reboot, and if you really want to know what happens next just restart this paragraph.

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Disconnecting In 9.10x64

Feb 13, 2010

I recently did a clean install on my ASPIRE 5490G laptop with 9.10x64 and am having some odd problems with wireless.

The wireless will suddenly drop and ask me for re-authentication of the encryption key which I put in. Then it will ask me again. It will then refuse to connect to the router.

If I hit cancel then on the notification area the nm-applet will not have the router listed in the wireless networks .

If I kill the nm-applet and restart it with ALT-F2 and run nm-applet --sm-disable it still does not show the networks available.

I know it is not the router as my flatmate who I share with uses a laptop with Windows 7 and they have no problems.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Working In 10.04 - Disconnecting Again And Again

Jun 1, 2010

I installed ubuntu 10.04 a few days ago. And I am running into a few problems wherein my wireless network disconnects and prompts me again for password.

Even when I re-enter it (correctly of course) I cannot reconnect and I have to do a system restart. After the restart, the wireless stays connected but disconnects again after a while and I find myself stuck in this loop.

I do not know if the following is any help, but below I am producing the output of lspci command and a few log messages that I think maybe related to this problem

Here is the output of lspci command

And here are some messages that show up quite often in daemon.log

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Disconnecting Every Few Minutes?

Jan 16, 2010

I have a Toshiba Satellite M55-S325 (as it came from the factory, no mods), a Linksys WRT54G router, and Ubuntu 9.10/Karmic with all updates. I've had issues since I upgraded from 9.04/Jaunty to 9.10/Karmic. It did work for awhile (I think a few days), but then it suddenly just couldn't find our wireless network. I reformatted (with 9.10) thinking it had just been a bad install - now I can connect to our network, but it throws me off every two minutes. My roommate (Dell laptop, Vista) has no problems with the internet, and I've visited a friend (in another state) and used her wireless internet without issues (though I couldn't tell you which router they were using). I've gone into our router's settings (with both my laptop and my roommate's) to reset the router or change the security settings, but with no real progress.

Here is my ifconfig results:

Code:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0f:b0:87:b3:80
UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

Networking :: Cannot Ping Wireless Router Or Access Router Settings - Wireless ?

Jun 9, 2010

I moved my server and network equipment, and now the wireless works but I cannot get my server online. I host a website, so this is kind of urgent.

I have a wireless router and can access the internet fine on my laptop. My server is wired & connected to the router. It sets up the networking properly.. ifconfig has an ip address, the default gateway is present. But I cannot ping google, or even the router. It says destination host unreachable.

So I go back to the laptop to check the router settings.. sometimes it likes to assign the server the wrong internal ip. But, I can't access the router settings either! The page (192.168.1.1) times out. Same with trying to ping the router. How can the laptop be online if it can't reach the router?

Oddly, ifconfig on my laptop reports an ip address starting with 99.233. It's always given me an internal address starting with 192.168. What's going on here? Is the router not allocating an internal ip? I use wicd to connect, if it's relevant.

We have a windows laptop that can only get a "local connection". Now it does sound like the router is forwarding directly to my laptop, instead of allocating internal ips.

Ubuntu Networking :: Constant Wireless Disconnecting With Intel Based Card

This is a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 on a Dell XPS M1530. I'm getting very frequent disconnects to my wireless network, despite good signal. I have wicd and nm-applet running side by side, wicd doesn't work by itself and nm-applet won't get a new IP after reassociating with the AP.

Wireless connection is steady in Windows 7, so I'm guessing it's a problem with the driver.

Networking :: UDP - Stop Netcat Connecting?

Dec 9, 2010

I'm wondering if I can use netcat to listen to a UDP port and display ALL incoming packets, no matter where they're from. If I just do 'nc -u -l 1234' then netcat will listen for incoming packets and connect() to the source address of the first one it sees (I can see this with strace). Is there any (standard) way to stop the connect() call? I can make a hack to block connect() with a function of my own, but that'd be ugly

Ubuntu Networking :: No Longer Connecting To Router?

Oct 27, 2010

When I start Ubuntu at work it automatically connects to the router every time. At home the router signal is quite weak but manually connecting via NetworkManager Applet 0.8 was successful for a week or so. In the past week, however, although the router appears in the list in Network Manager, it has stopped working and is unable to connect. Nothing has changed with the router or hardware in that time.

This is a new laptop which had Windows 7 pre-installed. Windows 7 connects to the home router successfully every time. I really don't want to use Windows 7 but until I can get this fixed I have no choice.

I don't know if it's relevant, but once I tried deleting the AUTO Home connection from Network Manager and was then able to connect on the next attempt, but this has not worked since.

Networking :: Setting Up Linux Box As IPv6 Router To Replace Netgear WNR1000 Wireless Router?

Jun 18, 2011

I want to set up a Linux box as a wireless router to replace our existing Netgear WNR1000 router, as I believe the Netgear does not support the coming IPv6 protocol. Unfortunately, it is not flashable with OpenWRT or DD-WRT presently.

As we have Comcast, our cable modem acts as a dumb modem according to the customer support guy I talked to, and our router is the one that asks for the IP address from DHCP. Thus, when Comcast switches over to IPv6, I don't believe my existing router would work, correct?

My idea is to take a Linux box and put two NICs and a wireless adapter in it, using IPCop or Smoothwall to set up a router. I could then enable IPv6 support for when we have IPv6 with Comcast. Is that possible? Would there be a way to get BIND to hand out private IP addresses in the same subnet on the both the LAN NIC and the wireless card?
