Networking :: Dual Wifi And Wired Connection: Make A Specific Website Use Only Wifi?
Apr 8, 2010
I have 2 connections, wlan and wired, and I'd want to have a few websites (in my browser) to connect through the wireless connection while other go through the wired rj45 connection. s it possible? (without unplugging the rj45 cable...)
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've been reading around, but not had much success at all in trying to share the internet connection from my laptop to my phone.all the articles i read refer to earlier versions of Ubuntu and the packages they mention have become obsolete, according to the apt-get tool.im not that new to Linux, but my networking probably isn't up to scratch.if anyone could help me, that would be great, im using Ubuntu 10.04 at the time of writing.
I have a Sony VAIO VGN SR29VN with ubuntu 9.10; I am trying to make a wifi connection through WPA work, to no avail. WEP and open connections work correctly, but when I try to connect to a WPA network using TTLS via network manager, y get errors of this type:Current regulatory domain updated by AP to:ES
preceded by lots of "leaving channel xxxx intact" and followed by "disassociating by local choice".This Sony is using an Intel 5100 wifi; any idea of what's going on or how to fix it?
I have a problem with my wifi adhoc network which I previously had under Windows. I go to network connections, edit connection ,wireless,add then change to adhoc then I cannot press the add button as it is not highlighted, I don't want any security so have not enterd any WEP or WPA information, also How do I do a scan for wireless networks/devices in my area? I have a number of devices plus the chap next door who connects to my wired internet connection using my wifi adhoc network that are unable to do so at present.
The situation: The office has a WiFi network on one DSL line, which is used for our VoIP call center, and a wired network for our internal network and the majority of web surfing/traffic . Part of the office must be temperature controlled/monitored - we have a rather nice digital thermometer which is WiFi enabled.I have a Debian Wheezy box with a WiFi card and ethernet connection
What I'm trying to accomplish:Connect wifi enabled thermometer to WiFi network so it can automatically send temp updates (currently I have to do it manually via USB)Have the Wheezy box accept the downloaded file then send it to a back up server in the wired network
Side things that may be useful : Prefer to use wired connection for internet and apt and suchWiFi connection will really just be used for connecting to the thermometer
This [URL] .... topic got me thinking that there might be a way to bring the two networks together, but I don't know if that will wreak havoc on things. I know, the Windows and Mac OS don't like having ethernet and wifi at the same time, might Linux be better for this?
v&n had this to offer in the prior thread [URL] .... which I'll be doing more research on.
I was wondering if there's any way for a laptop to be both simultaneously connected to a wireless network, while at the same time acting as an ad-hoc network with local access to serve as a wifi connection for my mobile device, which would be ssh-ing into the laptop and using local resources.
I've been running ubuntu for about 6 months, so i'm still abit of a newbie at linux but heres what im having issues with:I'm having troubles connecting to the internet on ubuntu, i have no problems connecting on xubuntu on the same machine. I can connect to my network but i cant access the internet on firefox or snaptic or any of that, but the weird thing is i can successfully ping address' in the terminal. I can also connect to my router config page in firefox using 192.168.0.1.
My internet worked perfectly about a month ago on this ubuntu install, so i cant figure out what i did to make it stop working. I think it may have something to do with the/etc/resolv.conf file because it only exists as /etc/resolv.conf.tmp and when i run "sudo dhclient wlan0" (or eth0) it says:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo dhclient wlan0 Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client V3.1.2 Copyright 2004-2008 Internet Systems Consortium.
I have an Ubuntu laptop connected by wifi to a Cisco router and a desktopUbuntu PC conneted by wire to the same router. I would like, if it's possible to connect them without using the Internet (I mean what I want it's not just communicate between them using SSH over the Internet, for instance, but also communicate without connecting to the Internet). My DSL connection it's 4 Mb/s while my router can work up to 100 Mb/s so I would like to take advantage of these 100 Mb/s to transfer files between the two computers instead of using 4 MB/s
This may be more suited for the networking forums, but I figured Community Cafe would be well rounded enough for someone to tell me if this is even possible (with minimal configuration that is).There are a few places I travel where I only have a wired connection to the Internet (no wifi), but when this happens is there a simple way to create an adhoc network so wireless devices can route through my computer and to the network? Reason I'm asking is I'm thinking of getting an iPad or iPod Touch which have wireless connections, but in the cases where my laptop is using a wired ethernet connection and the wireless card isn't used, I'd like to create an adhoc wireless network that'll let such wireless devices work.
My laptop has an internal wireless device and a button to turn it on/off, but since it has bad reception I use an external USB wireless adapter.The problem is that if I turn the internal wireless device off using the button, it also turns the USB wireless adapter off.Is there anyway to use the killswitch (the button) only for the internal wireless device?This only started to happen in Ubuntu 10.04.
I have only had a few weeks worth of experience with linux, so I'm probably considered a newbie at this but I felt like giving it a shot. I just configured my new Toshiba Satellite A505-S6969 to jaunty. Most of the transition is going well but I'm stuck with a few issues, one of which is getting my wifi to work. Right now I'm working off of an ethernet cable.spci returns

Installed ubuntu 9.10 dual boot with win7 yesterday. Everything working but Wifi. Wifi works fine with Win7. No Wifi in Ubuntu. Very confused. I have info from the wifi trouble ticket post.There does not seem to be a driver for this card anywhere.

the only error message I can find comes from "dmesg|tail"all it shows is "no IPv6 router"any body know what is going on here or where where to look for more clues the next time I get around public wifi Oh the windoze washers and apple polishers don't seem to have any problems at all
get WIFI working on my Dell D600 with Ubuntu 11.04 freshly installed.

I have an old PowerBook G4 that I would like to use as a 'dummy' computer for learning wireless penetration (WEP/WPA attacks) more effectively. I had been using a wireless router, but I gave it away I can use Mac OS X to share an ethernet connection over wifi, but this is _very_ un-configurable. You get two options only, WEP and a key-length. So, I would like to install someway to make this wireless connection more configurable.
I have a pc which has 2 network cards, 1 wifi and 1 ethernet card.
I'm using wifi card to connect to wifi network (internet) and i'm planing to share this wifi/internet connection via ethernet to wireless router (siemens sx763) so i can have internet on my other devices, e.g. mobile phone, laptop.
I am running (K)Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 64bit on a Dell Latitude E6400, WiFi Card Intel 5100. Never had any problems with networking. Up to about 2 weeks ago. I do realize there have been quite a few posts with this network adaptor, but non really described the problem I have here.
What happens is that suddenly the WiFi LED on the computer stops blinking, the WiFi connection gets disrupted, and the device is not recognized anymore when checking ifconfig. Only cold restarting the machine helps then... it will work for a while (between 1 and 20 minutes) and then crash again.
On Windows 7 the card works perfectly fine. With Ubuntu 11.04 in Live CD mode I have the same effects (connection crashes after a while). Also tried booting an older kernel, no success.
My exact hardware:
I notived the following problems in /var/log/kern.log
I am new to linux and also new to this forum. I love how light Slax is but it won't let me connect to my wifi. It scans and finds my router but the option to switch to the network is grayed out. How can I fix this problem?
I have installed Xubuntu 10.4 (Lucid) on a PC at my uncle's. He is the happy owner of a Netgear wg121 wireless usb-adapter.
I have followed the instructions concerning installation of the ndiswrapper here: [URL]
The wg is up and running and everything seems to work perfect... except that, when I reeboot and log in, I have to issue the following commands again, to make the network initialize the wep-encrypted connection. If I do not issue these commands, the wifi-part of the Xubuntu network manager (I don't know the exact name of the program) is invisible in the menu or anywhere on the desktop. (It just says no network where the wifi should be appended). But when I issue these commands in a terminal, then the adapter (wg121) opens and connects to the network:
sudo depmod -a sudo modprobe ndiswrapper I have tried the command: sudo ndiswrapper -m
in order to make Xubuntu connect automatically on opening, but no success. When i look through the log it says something about a .conf file, but not which and how, so I'm a bit lost.
What would be the commands I'd use to connect to aWireless access point, enter the password and delete the wireless name I am connected to through terminal.I do know that the command nm-tool lists all wifi connection ports even my IP address field, just want to take it a step further...
I've just installed the ubuntu 9.10. I have one problem with it. I have a home net in configuration: Windows XP on a cable, Ubuntu on a cable and Windows on wifi. When I'm surfing on the net on Ubuntu, Wifi isn't work how it should. It's very slow and I don't know what to do with it. Windows XP on a cable is OK, it works good. What happen and how can I repair it?
I just recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on a dell laptop. My WiFi connection that I've been using on the same computer for years is not working when I log on. However if I run the burnt image cd and choose the option "Use Ubuntu without making any changes to your computer" I am asked if I want install proprietary drivers. If I activate one "Broadcom STA" I can connect to the wireless connection in my house. When I am using the version installed on my laptop it doesn't ask me if I want to install the drivers and it doesn't even find them when I go to hardware drivers under system. So to sum it up I can get connection when I run Ubuntu from the cd but not when I run the Ubuntu on my laptop.
I cant connect with ssh to my workstation using my notebooks wireless lan. with cable I'm able to connect.so the funny thing is, if I first establish a connection from my workstation to my notebook (like ssh it or just ping the notebook) I'm able to create a ssh connection from my laptop to the workstation using wireless lan.scanning my workstation from the wireless lan of my notebook with
Code: nmap -sT -p 22 ventury says port 22 is closed
scanning it from the notebook with cable lan,it says port 22 is opened
scanning it from the wireless lan of my notebook an have sent a ping from the workstation before says port 22 is opened.ution.
I got a 64bit version of Kubuntu 10.04, up to date, installed on both, my workstation(ventury) and my notebook (defiant).the question is: Do I always have to ping my notebook first if I want to ssh from it to my workstation or is there some other solution? And why does it work fine with cable, but not with WiFi?
I just removed ubuntu-desktop in favor of kubuntu-desktop. Now I can't create an ad-hoc wifi connection however hard I tried from network-manager. It simply is not visible to other PCs. And when some connection is created on another ubuntu PC, I can't connect to it.. I switched NM off and tried the CLI way.
