I'm trying a long time to configure my 3g modem to connect.I had tryied using the KDE Network manager and the modem stay in "Waiting authorization" for ever ^^.The KDE Network manager runs ok in Kubuntu.I had tryied download and install kppp, but kppp don't open my modem (/dev/ttyUSB01)Then how can I configure my modem?
I m nokia mobile to connect to internet in 11.2 configured it all in n/w manager with phone number *99#
APN: XYUX(as given by provider)
Also wrote the dns in resolv.conf but all in vain . it is not connecting neither dialing any number just shows "activating" but with no progress earlier in 11.1 i used kinternet (but i couldn't find it here) is there not any other dialer ? as i ve heard that n/w manager is quite troublesome.
I'm having some trouble connecting to the wireless network here at home. The PC has a Linksys WMP600N wireless network card, which works fine under several versions of Windows. In Opensuse however, I cannot get it to find the network. Even though my laptop is right next to it, which has perfect connection to the network. The router is a Linksys WRT610N.
I've tried running iwconfig and iwlist scan in the terminal, but the scan returns no results and iwconfig indicates it does not have a connection to a network. I've turned off IPv6 as I read this can sometimes cause issues. I've also tried issuing the computer a static IP address, figuring the DHCP might be causing problems, but all to no avail.
since a few weeks I have a problem connecting to other hosts when I'm using another wireless network, which has a different DNS IP than I have in my network. I have to change /etc/resolv.conf to change the nameserver. Can NetworkManager control the nameserver? If yes, how?
I recently ran into a problem with my at&t vpn connection. I'm hoping someone in this forums may be able to help? It's been working beautifully then one day it just wouldn't connect. I'm wondering if AT&T may have something to do with this...? I have tried reinstalling agnclient-1.0-22.214.171.12400.i386.rpm and agnSUSE10Prep-1.0-2.i386.rpm but nothing seem to work.I'm running Linux 126.96.36.199-0.1-desktop i686System: openSUSE 11.2 (i586)KDE: 4.3.5 (KDE 4.3.5) "release 0"
Recently loaded 11.3 onto a virtual machine, however none of the network settings will allow me to connect to the internet. First time Ive had this happen, other distro's Ive experimented with connected with no problems. I recall seeing a similar topic some time ago (dont remember if it was here or another forum), but at the time, there had been no fix. Anyone know if this has been fixed?
Are there any limitations to connecting to a WPA2 Enterprise network with PEAP authentication on linux? Here at my university, on any major linux distro, I can only connect to the secure wifi 50% of the time and when I do successfully connect, it get booted off in a few minutes. At home I can connect to my WEP internet network easily.
Using Windows I can connect to my home WEP network and my university's WPA2 Enterprise network easily. Note: I work at the computing department here at my university, so I know that there is no anti-Linux mentaility which resticts access to Linux-based distros.)
I installed KDE on a machine that also runs Vista. We used to have a partial T-1 line with router that ran fine with both OS, but we had to drop the T-1 and go with AT&T DSL, which runs fine with Vista, but won't connect with KDE. I have searched this forum, and others, but nothing seems to work. I also used the 'swerdna' fix, suggested on these pages a while back, but that also didn't work. Of course, AT&T offers no support for Linux.We went to Linux because we were having chronic problems with the Vista system, and would rather not have it at all
I have bought a new USB modem from my service provider. The model they provided is "Huawei EC1260" Huawei Terminal. As usual the official support is for windows and mac.
I tried to install this device using two methods..
1) Set knetworkmanager settings to "traditional with ifup". Then in wireless setup there is a choice of having "usb" (A tick box). I selected that, and setup completed successfully but the knetworkmanager was not up(I did ifdown wlan0 (wlan0 was the wireless config name), ifup wlan0 and the rcnetwork restart.)
2) Again knetworkmanager was set to "traditional method with ifup. This times while adding the connection I specifically selected the type "USB", then clicked to finish the configuration. The configuration finished without any errors but when I checked the Network Configuration screen no USB device was added there.
Are there any specific steps to configure a USB modem
trying to make my 3G modem (a ZTE MF622) work with OpenSUSE 11.2. KNetworkManager is recognizing it (so I suppose it's not on Storage Mode), I can create the 3G connection and connect, but I can't navigate on any sites (ping gives "unknown host" for any IP). Also, the KNetworkManager applet doesn't show anything on fields "Name servers" and "Domains" (they are blank). Tried some instructions from the internet here and there, but didn't have any luck.
i'm running suse 11.2 and using a ZTE mf627. thus far i can connect to the internet using usb_switcher/vwdial but i want to share it across a LAN. all the how-to's on connection sharing I've seen use the network manager/network settings, but the device doesn't show up in either
I have a devolo MicroLink 56k Fun LAN modem, which I could configure in openSuse 11.2 as an DSL device. With 11.2 it worked fine. But it isn't possible in 11.3 to configure it, because I cannot set the dial up internet provider phone number for this DSL device.I also tried it to configure it as a modem, but then it used the /dev/modem device, which is the wrong device for this LAN modem.
I have a box with 1 ethernet card and Huawei E160 USB modem. So, I have configured eth0 interface with IP 192.168.1.1 and modem0 interface with dynamically assigned IP. Now, I'd like to share Internet from modem0 to eth0 and so to the rest of home local network.
I need your advice on how to do it. All the manuals I've read deal with two ethernet cards that have static IPs. It seems that YAST lacks the GUI for it, too. Also, I need the configuration to work even with no user logged in so I'm using ifup instead of NetworkManager.
I am running a 3-G wireless USB broadband modem, and connecting with Network Manager, but I keep getting disconnected when idle after 5-6 minutes. I am used to using Kinternet to connect with my 3-G wireless USB broadband modem, and setting it up in Yast / Network / Modems, but was not able to configure my modem there (for some mysterious reason) so ended up using Network Manager instead.
What's going on here regarding YAST being unable to configure my modem (even when Network Manger is disabled). But my main problem at this point is that my connection times out after about 6 minutes if I'm idle. This is a big problem for me because I type slow and frequently get disconnected while posting on message boards. Where are the idle time out settings are for Network Manager? I can't seem to find them.
I just loaded 11.2 & Kde 4.3. Installed both Kinternet and Kppp. My modem is a USR PCI HW modem 2976. Hardware Info shows it connected to /dev/ttyS4. I configured the modem with Yast as modem0. The user access box is checked for Kinternet Both Kppp and and Kinternet will dial out.
The connect response comes back from the ISP and either of the dialers will hang and the dial tone comes back. The firewall is showing modem0 in the External section. Nothing changes if I shut the firewall off.There's nothing in the dmesg I could find. Could this be a pppd permission problem?
My machine is running on a dual-boot Windows Vista/openSUSE 11.2 scenario. I have been trying to get my Huawei E1550 to work on Linux for the past few days trying numerous methods suggested in other forums from people with the same problem, but I have not produced any fruitful results.
Plugging in the USB modem results in Linux detecting it as a CD-ROM. I have installed usb_modeswitch in attempt to switch it to a modem, but Linux still fails to recognize it. Windows Device Manager and lsusb both give ProductID=1001 and VendorID=12d1 connected to USB1. I'm guessing since Windows detects the correct IDs, the Linux versions should also be correct. In any case, I ran usb_modeswitch with the Default IDs for /etc/usb_modeswitch.conf, which gave 0x1446 as the ProductID, not 0x1001. Upon running usb_modeswitch, the product ID could not be found so the program fails and quits asking if it's connected (and it is).
Just to test, I also ran wvdial which unsurprisingly did not detect the modem and could not send the init strings. All commands were done using root privileges. Also note that when after usb_modeswitch is run and upon plugging in the USB, NetworkManager pops up near the tray saying "attached" but still shows the device as a CD-ROM.
I have an external usb dial up modem. lsusb shows: Bus 001 Device 002: ID 2001:f10d D-Link Corp. [hex] Accent Communications Modem How do I set this up? It probably needs a driver, how do I check it, or better yet, can I get yast to tell me if it recognizes the modem or needs firmware? I know linux and dial up is like the seventh circle of hell. Just wondering if there was a snowball's chances of getting this working. Sorry if this is the wrong section to ask in. Seemed like as good as any when I checked.
I have a US Robotics serial modem, and I have smpppd enabled in system services, with wvdial and kppp installed. When I try to set the modem up using yast, I keep getting hung up by the different screens. First a screen that asks if I need to dial a number to get out. I have to dial 9, so I have that entered. Then a screen that asks for "country" and "provider."
When I try to enter anything, nothing shows in the boxes, so I go to a screen that asks for the phone number, provider, user name and password. When I enter those, it goes to a screen that wants "Connection Parameters", with default settings and the "buttons" at the bottom of the screen "muted," or flattened out, i.e. unusable. That makes it impossible for me to set the information as saved, so it's back to the beginning and sart over, with the same results over and over. How do I get the modem so it dials out?
I have a Zoom 2920 internal hardware modem that worked well with Suse 10.0. In Suse 11.3 the modem config. overview lists 2 modems for this one board; #1- AT Modem and #2- Venus Modem (v90, 56K Flex). With #1 "edit" brings up modem parameters and the modem device line is blank. With #2 the device line shows /dev/ttys4.
When the provider parameters are entered, for either #1 or #2, the modem overview continues to list them as not configured but a third line "modem 0" is configured with the provider information at /dev/ttys4. The modem will not function.
I got a new cable modem so I could get rid of the one I've been leasing from the cable company. It is a Motorola sb6120. Everything is fine with the ISP, it's approved for operation on their network, the only hitch was I had to use my Windows laptop to run their activation software.
At any rate, with the new modem installed, I hop on my Linux box and go to work. I'm seeing some terrible delays in looking up names. When I look with firebug, all the dns lookups for new names are taking 15+ seconds. First I just think maybe the names aren't cached or something is weird for a minute and it will get better, but no. After several restarts and then a couple days persevering with the new cable modem, all DNS queries are still terribly slow (including zypper, mail client, web client).
Suddenly I remember an issue I was having with, I believe version 11.1 when I first installed it. For just the computer on my network with a fixed IP address, DNS resolution was slow like this and if I disabled IPv6 then all was well. I believe there was even a patch issued back then for gethostbyname() that was supposed to fix the issue? So, when I disable IPv6, DNS lookup is back to normal. The two Linux computers on my network had been working fine with IPv6 and the old modem, though, and the Windows box is still working fine even with the new modem.
I can disable IPv6 and make it fast again, but really why should I have to?
I've just installed Direct Connect P2P and after searching for hubs and setting everything according to this DC++ Guide: Getting Started , I searched for hubs. After connecting to the hubs, DC++ suddenly closes. It happened quite a few times before I gave up. What is wrong here?
My 11.3 keeps dropping the network connection. After a few minutes of websurfing, it decides to quit connecting to the router. The windows machine behind the same router keeps working properly. I disabled IPv6 and rebooted, but still doing same the thing. The router is the DHCP server. I have tested the CAT5e wire, and it works fine.
I just bought a new USB wireless adapter for my openSUSE 11.3 laptop, a TP-Link TP-WN727N. I can't get the new card to connect to my home wireless network, which is named WRT320N in the screenshot. KDE prompts for the key repeatedly but never connects successfully. Part of the problem might stem from the fact that this laptop now has 2 wireless cards: one build into chipset (PRO/Wireless 3945ABG) and the new USB card. Both show up in knetworkmanager but no clear distinction is made between them visually. Strangely my wireless network shows up twice in knetworkmanager as in the screenshot. Once per wireless card? As my wireless network is N-only I don't see why it would do this.
Just moved over to openSUSE 11.4 (KDE) from Ubuntu, yesterday. However, I'm having some trouble with my wireless connection.
I have a wireless network with a hidden SSID and WPA2-PSK security. I entered all the nescery information into the KDE network manager, but it couldn't find my network. So I ran the usual command:
Code: su -c iwlist wlan0 scanning essid [My SSID]
At which point, the network manager immediately found, and connected to, the network. However, it seems that I have to run this command (as root) each time I log in, before my laptop will connect to the network. The network manager has no problem find the plethora of unsecured networks as well as those that are secure, but broadcast their SSID.
If I connect with a 3g modem or with wireless sometimes the resolving does not work. This happens on opensuse 11.2. nslookup and dig works but nor ping nor ssh nor any other network application does work If I modify the /etc/resolv.conf after connecting to a wireless network for example it does not work even the dns are known And more strange if the resolver works and I modify /etc/resolv.conf with known dns the resolver does not work anymore. BTW: the dns entry from the wireless is 192.168.1.1 and I do not have any idea how the wireless ap is configured... so it could be in this case that dns is not forwared only allowed to use 192.168.1.1 but the other case is a 3g modem which not even the propagated dns entries works in the bad case
