Does anyone have experience with the D-LINK DIR-655 gateway OR router OR wireless access point? On the surface, I like this box, but it is giving me grief. First, it wants me to use a win-dose CD configurator application. I use the embedded web page configurator. Next, there are several configuration wizards at the embedded web page. After trying the wizards, I went to the manual screens to tinker to get something working.
So what is going on? When a LAN client connects, I want DHCP to present at least two "nameserver" values ... which then make their way into /etc/resolv.conf The DIR-655 plays some nameserver games like caching and blacklisting and other things. However, I get some ad-vert page from "dnssearch" or "yahoo" or similar when names don't resolve. I really don't want this behavior. Network-manager does not report the connection down, however streaming anything stops or "reconnects", browsing times out, LAN side traffic seems to stop as well.
I have a wireless network in my house through a Zyxel P-320W router, and I've noticing that the signal strength isn't very good in the basement. Now I have this old D-Link-624+ router lying around for a long time and I've been hoping to get it to work as an access point, that way I can move freely around the house without changing which router I'm connected to.
Because of the configuration of my house, I need two routers.I have a DLink ADSL router as my main router and the Belkin N1 as my repeater.I have set up the IP address in the Belkin to be 10.1.1.10 - my DLink is 10.1.1.1. I have disable the dhcp in the Belkin and set the DNS as ISP provided. [URL]..I have set the channel to 11 and in the Ubuntu Network Manger I have set the IPV4 to Link Local Only. I can see the Belkin and connect with my PC.but it will not take me through to the internet.
I'm sure that some of us techies have found the need from time to time to have a portable wireless bridge (see ascii art below) on our jaunts into the big bad user-woods, and I am here to ask the question of HOW to pull this off, with the least installation/configuration possible, as my tech lappy is also my main computer. What I want to do is this:
Code: (ISP) -> (wlan0 - [MyLappy] - eth0) -> (Client computer) Basically, thats a mess, so i'll explain it further: wlan0 grabs the netz, and a computer connected to eth0 via switch/router/crossover cable can access those netz.
1. No configuration on the client would be prime choice rib for me.
2. Client should be any OS/Arch.
Any grand ideas out there? Currently using FC10, with various extra repos enabled.
Oh, and N00by alert, I'm learning quick, and am not shy to try new/complicated things, just bear with me!
Have set the gateway server as 121.x.x.1. Which is the gateway server of the ISP. Now I can ping the local network, but cant ping the gateway or any other website. Also I am unable to access the router administration page.
The garage in my house is a dead spot for my current wifi router.I can't get a signal there.Moving my router within the limits of my cabling doesn't fix it. But I have two other routers I'm no longer using.Is it possible to use one of them as a wireless access point to extend the range of my current router?If so, what is the general procedure for doing that? My main router is a Verizon Actiontec M424WR. My other unused routers are a D-Link and a Netgear, both of which have wireless capability. The Netgear had a superior range, as I recall.
I have a complicated situation due to my goals and network structure. I have in mind a potential solution, a bridge, but I do not know whether it is feasible or what hardware it will require.
My apartment community provides residents with free Internet access through an ancient T1 line. We do not have the option of other Internet providers, so having a router and modem in the home are not an option. The T1 line is split among some 24 switches, one for each building, and each switch has one port per floor. At each floor, there is a D-link WAP, and each has a separate SSID and WEP key. Additionally, they control access at the switch level using Access Control.
I'm used to being in control of my networked environment. I like to have friends over often, and most of them have a laptop, a smart phone, or both, which makes Access Control a pain. I don't want to have to think ahead and get their MAC addresses to the IT consultant while he's here during business hours. My wife and I have 6 devices, two of which require an Ethernet connection. I use a few applications for streaming that utilize UDP (I'm not sure if the WAPs are smart enough to even handle this) and I don't like having my traffic muddled with my neighbors.
I should note that I tried extending the network with my Airport Extreme router, which apparently only works with other Apple devices. I've also looked into WDS, but that seems to require an unlikely amount of cooperation from the IT consultant on site.
The potential solution: a Linux server that acts as a router. Ideally, it could act as a webserver for a small static site as well, but let's focus on the routing. I'd like to bridge two NICs and use masquerading (Internet Connection Sharing). The public interface would connect to the WAP using WEP. The private interface would allow up to 8 devices to connect to the server.
It seems easy enough to configure the public interface, and even to bridge the connections. What I've never done before is purchase a wireless card that can accept multiple clients. Maybe they can all do this?
I had an intstall of 10.2 that I'd been using forever that has a Prisim card in it that I was using as router/access point across a bridge. Recently I rebuilt my machine (replacing a bunch of drives) and installed 13.1. I'm having some difficulty getting my AP reestablished. The card is showing on the pci bus
I was introduced to Ubuntu about a year ago and recently decided to come back to using the OS. I now dual boot it with Windows XP Home. My former setup was with Wubi but now I have it installed on an actual partition. (The Wubi install, for whatever reason, had little internet problems.) I use wireless internet, and though my network card was recognized out of the box and can connect to my network, the Internet is very slow. It takes almost a minute to look up Google. Also, Firefox will often report that it cannot find the server for whatever website I try to look up, after trying to connect to it/look it up. I also cannot access the web configuration page for my router. (192.168.1.1). The network app reports that I often have a signal strength of 40% or lower. The following is my hardware/internet:
Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty TrendNet TEW-424UB adapter (54mbps) Westell VersaLink 327W router ISP: CenturyTel/CenturyLink High speed internet (512kbps)
I am the only Linux computer on my network. (There is no encryption on my network. I know there should be. but my parents are not very computer literate and they are the ones who have access to the network. It is easier just to go without.)
I have tried disabling ipv6, setting custom DNS server names under ipv4, and setting the wlan rate (or something similar) to 1492. Nothing works. This does not seem to be a network problem because my internet works fine in Windows, and I can access the configuration page for my router to change channels, PPP, etc..
I have a desktop running Ubuntu 10, a D-Link DIR 320 router which allows my laptop and desktop to share printers/internet. I can get my Canon MP250 to print directly from Ubuntu via USB, and it works wireless from laptop, but I don't know how to get it printing via the usb port connected to the router. Documentation suggests I use 192.168.0.1 but just can't figure out what needs to happen to make the darn thing connect!
I live on a property with 3 other units and we all share a cable connection. There's a modem connected to a wireless router (I'll call it the "main" router), which until recently I connected to with an 80' or so long ethernet cable because I don't get a good signal, and all I've got is a desktop anyway. When plugged directly into the main router, I can get very fast download speeds - the fastest I've seen over bittorrent, for example, is about 2.2 Mb/s, and it's over 1 Mb/s most of the time for popular torrents or sites with good bandwidth. A friend with a laptop is staying with me for a month, so I wanted to set up a wireless router in my home, and my desktop needed to be moved to a location where running a wire is kind of awkward, so I planned on using the wireless too.
I don't have a spare proper router with an uplink port laying around, but I did have a spare DSL modem/wireless router combo (which I'll call the "secondary" router) that I used to use at a former residence, and I thought I'd try to use it here. I plugged it into my computer, configured its security settings how I wanted (64-bit WEP) and looked through for settings that seemed like they might pertain to using it in this capacity. I didn't really find any except for something that seemed to turn off its DHCP, which I did. Then I unplugged my computer and plugged in the ethernet cable that runs to the main router (which is a normal ethernet cable, not crossover). I found that this setup does "just work" for the most part - our computers see the signal and can log in and access the internet through the main router's cable connection. However:
1. I can't figure out how to access the secondary router's settings once it's been plugged into the main one, even if I unplug it from the main one. What happens is that as soon as I connect the two routers together, it's almost like the secondary ceases to exist independently until it's settings are purged via the reset button. I plug it's IP address into a browser like usual, and nothing happens (it's an Actiontec whose stock one is 192.168.0.1 and the main router is a Netgear with an IP of 192.168.1.1).
I can log into the main one like normal through a wireless connection to the secondary, though. If I look at "attached devices" in the main router's config, it lists all the client computers in the network, but there's no IP that could be for the router (I'm sure of this). Each computer connected through my secondary router gets assigned its own IP like normal, and port forwarding works without a hitch. Again, this persists until the secondary is reset - after the two routers are connected but until the secondary is reset, there doesn't to be a way into the secondary's config. The security settings are acting as they should, though (ie, you need the secondary's WEP key to log on).
2. Internet download speeds when connected to the secondary over wireless are extremely slow compared to what the connection is capable of (can't seem to top 90 Kb/s) but for some reason the max attainable internet upload speed seems to be about the same as normal (around 200 Kb/s). This is puzzling to me. Back when I was using the secondary router for it's intended purpose as a DSL gateway under XP, I downloaded at around 300 Kb/s all the time with it using the same wireless card I am now, so I know the hardware I have is capable of it. Now both of our wireless cards are getting the same mediocre speeds (seemingly bottlenecked at around 90 Kb/s), even with a full signal (ie, the computer right next to the router).
If we connect to the secondary router with a cable rather than wireless, there's no problem and downloads are really fast (note again though that the max upload speed doesn't seem affected whether wired or wireless, as determined by running internet speed tests in both configurations). Ping times over wireless are also extremely high - ie, 800ms+ even when pinging the main router at 192.168.1.1.
It almost seems like there's something inferior or bottlenecked about the wireless signal the secondary router puts out, but I don't know what that could be or how to change it. (I also don't really understand anything about the setup I created here though, other than that I plugged it in and crossed my fingers and it works for basic, non-bandwidth-intense tasks). basically I'm curious whether there's a way to have normal access to the secondary router's settings in this setup, and whether there's a way to make the bandwidth over wireless less mediocre.
a wireless router (box) is went stuck, I found that when it is stuck it uses strange IP local address remote address 10.112.112.112, today is also went stuck but this time the gateway was 10.112.112.112. I had to switch off, switch on teh router to function properly. I am using DSL connection normally the gateway is likie that 78.8.... and my IP (dynamic) like 78.8.240..... Is there any default meaning of 10.112.112.112 in teh net connections?
I have been searching google for a while now and have not found exactly what I am looking for. I would like to use my fresh install of ubuntu server 11.04 as my router/gateway for my home. I am not an expert at linux by any means but I can usually figure stuff out. I believe I need iptables, bind, and a few others probally. It eventually will also be a samba server but I have done a little with samba before. I do have 2 network cards, my router at the moment is starting to die and would love to have a more powerful router. I would also like to figure out how to do port forwarding in the router, as well as be able to see the load on the network cards. Maybe there is a program to show usage by user? As well as be able to do packet pritorization.
I want to do is setup a gateway(or router, idk what Ubuntu refers to it as.). So my set up would be Modem>Server>Switch>Router. I know that I need to set up it up as a DHCP server as well. I would also like to setup it up as a firewall too. I already have two Gbit cards that are already configured. So how do I do this? I already tried one tutorial, but it was old and was for Debian. I also installed ebox, but I couldnt figure that out either.
I've just recently installed opensuse after being an ubuntu user for about a year. For some reason I can't connect to my Dlink router, but I can connect to my neighbors linksys router. To be more specific it actually connects but acts as if the DNS isn't working. I can ping the router, but can't ping anything past the router. Right now the router is unsecured.
Switched to Ubuntu a few months ago, love it. However compatability crops up from time to time. I'm trying to access a dlink 655 router used at the motel I'm staying at and it just spins and spins. Does anyone know of a patch that will work?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and my setup is as follows:
As you can see, I am directly connected to router 192.168.25.1, and so my ip address is 192.168.25.101. I want my ip address to be 192.168.13.101, and make router 192.168.13.1 my gateway router. Is this possible under the current physical layout (I do not want to have to connect directly into 192.168.13.1, but keep my computer where it is at)?
When I run tracepath, it shows 192.168.13.1 is one hop away.
What I've tried:
The problem is under this manual setup, I cannot ping 192.168.13.1 and running command netstat -rn returns the following:
I have a fedora 14 box which has a static IP and I can not contact the internet or even my gateway router.I know it has to do with my kernal IP routing table but I can not find the command to do what I need...Here is my kernal IP routing table
I recently got a static IP from my ISP. I Have two machines connected to my DLink wireless router. A windows laptop and linux machine runninf centos 5.3. I would like to host an application apache/tomcat based on my linux machine and would like people to access it from the outside. What configurations do I need to make on the Dlink wireless router and my linux box to make it work.
I've just installed CentOS 5.3 on a Shuttle PC with an Atheros AR5001X+ Wireless card, and although the card is properly recognised and correctly identified by the OS, there seems to be a point blank refusal to pick up a signal from my network router, which is a Be*Box branded Thomson 585v7. I've previously successfully managed to get this PC and wi-fi card to pick up the signal from that router under other OSes including Kubuntu, openSUSE, Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 RC, but no luck with CentOS 5.3.
Clicking on Scan for Networks... in KWiFiManager doesn't even bother to scan for a network signal. From the very split second I take my finger of the mouse button, it instantly displays a dialog box which tells me . . . "The scan is complete, but no networks have been found."
How on earth can it actually find a network signal, when it doesn't even bother looking for any?! Wireless access is the only way I can get that machine online. A wired connection is not a realistic option, since the ADSL modem/router is in a front room downstairs, and all my PC's are in a back room upstairs, and would require about 10-20 meters of RJ45 ethernet cable and a lot of unnecessary extra work. The PC I'm currently typing this message on (running W7RC) is picking up the wi-fi signal with no problem.
I've set up bridged networking so that I can have KVM virtual machines that are accessible from outside the host. I can access both the Host and my VM from other machines on the local network, and from the VM I can access the internet but from the Host I can only access my local network. Since I can access the local network and the same issue applies regardless of whether I use host names or IP addresses I suspect it's not picking up the gateway properly.
How do I go about allowing the VM host to access the internet while still having bridged networking so I can access my VMs?
What I've checked so far: Ping Google DNS (220.127.116.11 ) From Host: Destination Host Unreachable From VM: Suceeds
The issues are only with accessing things outside of my subnet. I can access other machines on the same subnet from the Host just fine.
i'm using stuido 10.10 and am trying to get wireless to work. i've used Network Settings to enable the wireless connection with correct ESSID and Network Password, though when i type iwconfig it says Access Point: Not-Associated.how do i associate with the AP?
I have installed fedora 11 64 bit on a new computer. I have no problems accessing the computers on my local network, but can not get past the gateway. The gateway is running windows XP with IP address 192.168.0.1 and is named "internet". When I boot the new computer in windows, there is no problem. Here is the output of some commands I saw in other posts with similar problems:
I am completely new to linux in any flavour. I installed ubuntu 10.4.1 64-bit on my Gateway NV59 laptop as a dual boot with Windows 7. The installation went just fine. When it comes to networking, I can connect to my home network when wired directly, wireless is another matter. I can connect wireless in windows just fine, so the card is physically fine.
My set up is as follows: Gateway NV59 laptop with Atheros AR928X PCI-E wireless adapter Linksys WRT54G router using WPA2 Personal and a class C address scheme (192.168.x.x) (If anyone thinks it would be necessary to post actual hardware specs of the laptop, I can, but don't think it really necessary). I have followed the Wifi Wireless Troubleshooting Guide found at [URL].
When connecting to my network wirelessly, I click the icon in the top right, and choose "Create New Wireless Network". When I input my settings (SSID - not broadcast, and security type and key - WPA), it then states I am connected under the "Wireless Networks" section found in that menu, and shows my network name with a strong signal and a computer/monitor icon. When I double-click the icon, it tells me I am connected and that the connection is active, yet the actual wireless icon on the top bar is grey, not white, and has a red exclamation mark on it. According to the steps in the troubleshooting guide, my wireless card is recognized and installed, with a driver of ath9k.
When I run lsmod, the driver is listed, therefore loaded, and ndiswrapper is NOT listed. I have verified that the driver is communicating with the kernel. When I scan for my router, it is listed under Cell 04, with the correct SSID and hardware address. There do not appear to be multiple drivers loaded, and my wifi is NOT disabled. When I check to see if I'm associated with a router, iwconfig shows my network ssid under wlan0, with the correct hardware address listed under Cell:, yet I cannot ping my router's internal ip address. At this point, I ran ifconfig, and for some reason, my wireless card has been given a class A address of 10.42.43.1.
When I try to assign an ip address via dhcp, DHCPDISCOVER runs for a number of intervals and then tells me "No DHCPOFFERS received", yet my router is using dhcp to assign ips with a pool of 50, more than enough ips for all the hardware in my network. When I run the command "sudo invoke-rc.d networking restart", I get the statement "Ignoring unknown interface wlan0=wlan0" - not sure what that means, but doesn't sound good to me, and retrying to accquire an ip address through dhcp still does not work. If I attempt to assign an ip address within my network range manually, I first run the command "sudo ifconfig wlan0 down", then just out of curiosity to see if the interface is really down.
I run ifconfig again, and wlan0 is no longer listed, but now there is eth0 (my regular ethernet interface) with no ip address. AND another interface is listed - eth0:avahi with the same hardware address as eth0, and an address of 169.254.4.42 - this seems to be the default address the OS will assign when it cannot get one via dhcp, but I have no idea why it has shown up as eth0::avahi... Anyway, after entering the command "sudo ifconfig ip addr 192.168.x.x netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.x.255 up" with the appropriate addresses, I receive the error "addr: Unknown host".
What I have NOT tried, are the following steps: 1. Change my router to an open signal (I would prefer not to do this, but will, if it is absolutely necessary for troubleshooting) 2. Try gtk wifi, or wifi radar 3. Try booting with kernel option pci=noacpi or acpi=off (not entirely sure how to do this just yet) 4. Try wpa supplicant (not sure what this is, just noted it was in the troubleshooting guide)
I have a Sonicwall access point, which I am able to set up through the interface, but after that I am unable to achieve a connection through my wireless card. I have a good understanding of everything involved, but really have no hands on experience when it comes to networking.
Also, I should have mentioned that @ the interface for the Sonicwall it said that "no DNS server had been specified", but I set it up for DHCP, and I thought my ISP is using PPPoE (which I also thought used DHCP).
