I installed ubuntu Karmic Koala 2 weeks ago, and while I have been able to connect to my school wireless, I have not been able to establish a PPPoE connection (username and password).After my most recent try, following this guide:-karmic.htmlMy wireless connection has gone as well.My network manager applet shows my school network, and shows that it is trying to connect, but it cannot establish a connectionand i apologize in advance for any information that i am lacking. please let me know, and i'll try to get the information.I'm running ubuntu on a separate partition, alongside windows XP home.
My adsl modem is in bridge mode. I can connect to internet via pppoe . pppoeconf recognise the pppoe in eth0 and setup a connection and I can use it. How can I setup a pppoe connection using pppoeconf so that it uses wireless ? I set the wireless mode to bridge in modem settings. But, after that the access point stopped appearing in "aps in range" in network manager and I can't connect to it. pppoeconf also doesn't recognise wlan0 as a valid pppoe link . but dat is normal since i don't think it can check if wlan0 is pppoe without wlan0 being connected to the modem's wireless network. How can I connect to Internet with modem in bridge mode and connections via wireless interface of modem? Is pppoe over wireless even possible ? coz the datalink layer of wlan is not ethernet rite?
I have this strange problem. I can't setup my PPPoE connection through the kPPPoE. My ISP told me that this PPPoE has something like name server or something like that and i must use some other package to connect.
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 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'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.
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 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'm trying to connect to a hidden wireless network in ubuntu through the terminal but i am unable to do so.
I first tried using ifconfig,iwconfig and dhclient initially but i am only able to get an ip address without the default gateway and dns server addresses which i normally get through the network manager applet.
Then i tried using cnetworkmanager but failed miserably again i keep getting this error
Another applet is running: Bus name already exists: org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings (pid 1851)
Then i used nmcli available with the network manager package. i was able to establish a connection only with the connections showed in the list. i use a hidden wireless network. i am unable to connect to the hidden wireless network using nmcli without actually creating a connection from the network manager applet.
I have just installed FC11 from a DVD I created from an ISO.I also have FC10 (using here) and Windoze XP pro all on separate HDDs.I have not been able to configure my internet connection, when I try to create a new xDSL connection I get an error message; package needed 'rp-pppoe'.I don't now how to get the package without a connection.I have tried with and without Network Manager.
i am completely new to the world of Linux. But i want to learn it. My problem is , i cannot connect my PC to internet. I have a shared broadband connection which needs username and password to connect to internet. I don't know clearly but its something pppoe connection through wan mini port. or xdsl. I contacted my isp but in Our country (Bangladesh) a very few people use Linux or Ubuntu so they cant help me out. i searched many forums,, googled everywhere but cant make it working. i tried some command like "sudo pppoeconfig" but still dont understand. I know there are many people who know how to do this. My Pc configuration:
I have an issue relating my broadband connection, which I am not able to solve. I hope and wish, that I would find some way out here.
Some introduction: I am using Dell Inspiron (i3 processor) laptop, which I recently bought. I have win 7 preinstalled in it. In win 7, the wired broadban connection (Airtel connection) is working fine and have no issues.
I have been using mobile GPRS(BSNL, Ltd) through bluetooth, and that have been working fine. But today when I tried to connect through landline connection, it didn't workout. But the bluetooth connection is still fine. When I tried to do the connection manually through Network Manager, it is not taking the MAC Address. Till now, after installation, I have not updated my OS.
I surfed the net and tried some commands, whose results I am posting below.
From a post I found out, that I should change my duplex settings (from 100 full to 10 full), but I could not get much. The corresponding commands and output,
My desktop computer, running 11.04 (fresh install) sometimes can't establish a wired Ethernet connection. Sometimes when I boot, it keeps trying to establish, but with no luck. I keep trying to choose "Auto eth0" from the networking menu, but still, it doesn't succeed. If I reboot, it sometimes works. I can't establish a connection about half the times that I boot.
The computer is connected with a cable to a router ("Belkin Wireless Pre-N router"), and the router is connected with a cable to a cable modem.I've been using Ubuntu for a while, and I've had a problem for the past few versions (since around 10.04)? I thought that it might be some old issue that got resolved, so I did a fresh install of 11.04 today, and still have the same behaviorI'm willing to try things next time I can't get a connection, but don't know what.
i have a routed and a PPPoE type internet connection, recently i tried a thing in terminal with the pppoeconf option since the network manager has problems with connectiong to the internet with a pppoe DLS connection, or anyway in my case it does not work. Ok i did the pppoeconf thing i inserted my pass and my user and left the program to do its thing, ok it all worked fine but then i restarted my system and suddenly the network manager did not want to recognize my network it hat as options some weird ipupdown options for connection and when i tried the pppoeconf thing again it did not work. what could i do to reactivate at least one way my connection, if i understood correctly the terminal type connecting and the network manager are two different things. now i am using my router and it should connect but the network manager still does not see the connection.
I want to create a broadband connection in suse 11.4 , in the windows the connection Properly works but in suse ...i recently installed qinternet , it runs the dsl connection , and shows this massage : " connected , connection established " , but no internet
I've been trying to use gnome-schedule to create a scheduled task that would dial my pppoe connection automatically. For this I used "sudo pon" command (after configuring the pppoe connection using pppoeconf ). Although the command gets executed, but then it waits for me to enter the password. I want it to be automatic & shouldn't require me/anyone to authorize it. Is there a way to enter this password automatically for the scheduled tasks?
Also, I'd like to use network manager, instead of pppoeconf, for the same purpose. How can I set network manager to dial a pppoe connection at scheduled time?
I am deployed to Iraq and the Earthlink ISP here uses PPPoE to configure a connection to their wireless broadband. His english skills are pretty good and from what I gather, he's got a DSL connection that he's trying to connect me to. He showed me how he does it on a Windows machine but I can't figure it out on my ubuntu laptop. That windows machine didn't need any IP addresses or server names. It only used a username and password to connect. Of course a strong wireless signal detected was also pre-requisite.
I know my laptop works because I've had great success with it here lately, just not on the Earthlink service.I see their wireless is broadcast and I can connect to it. I just can't figure out how to post my credentials and authenticate.I don't see a way of entering my username and password because I don't know how to install (or configure) for PPPoE.I did use the pppoeconfig and got to the part where I add my username and password, but most of what's going on up to and after that, I do not have the knowledge base to use. So I figured that allowing the defaults and recommended settings would be acceptableYou'll have to forgive me if I've asked another dumb question here. I'm another one of those Linux enthusiasts who is learning and I'm just not willing to switch back to MS just to get internet while deployed.
I have an internet connection which requires pppoe setup to login with the specified username and password ip address is dynamic.Above are the screenshots for your reference for which I establish the internet connection.the pppoe settings can be done through "sudo pppoeconf" but for the screenshot No. 2.what is the procedure? I need to specify the service name for my internet connection.how to configure my internet connection.
