OpenSUSE Network :: Connecting Mobile Via Network Manager In11.2
Mar 7, 2010
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 want to use my laptop to share network for VoIP adapter. I'm using mobile stick as well as wi-fi and Network manager under Gnome 3. Voip adapter asks for address via DHCP to gain the access to the server some where in the other side of the world.
I am trying to find out how to get the mobile broadband providers to appear on the network manager app, coz at the moment when i try to create a new mobile broadband connection the list of providers is empty.
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-1.0-18.104.22.16800.i386.rpm and agnSUSE10Prep-1.0-2.i386.rpm but nothing seem to work.I'm running Linux 22.214.171.124-0.1-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 have u usb 3G stick and I configured a mobile broadband connection to connect to the internet.I filled all details and saved the connection.Now I clicked on the network manager icon in top right corner, but there was no connection with the name I just created.Again I checked in edit connections dialog box and found the connection there.Now how do I connect to this newly created connection while there is no option in network manager?
I am having problems with my 3 dongle- when I connect it to my netbook it flashes green so it detects a 3G network. However there is nothing in network manager enabling me to choose the mobile broadband so I can't use it. I know there should be an entry "mobile broadband" after the wireless networks listed.
I know the dongle works because I have previously used it successfully- I was using Linux Mint 8 and have now updated to version 9 and when I have tried to use it have been unable to do so.
I have gone into the connections and my 3 connection is present but there is no way for me to select it in network manager.
I have a broadband mobile modem iCon 225 (Option) with SiMobil provider (Slovenia). I run ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala). I connect to the internet without problem. After a few minutes, the modem lights start signaling that there is no connection, but the network manager shows connected status. I have to reconnect the network manager to regain connection. After about a dozen times of reconnecting like this, I have to reboot the system, as it won't connect, even if I unplug and replug the modem.
I've noticed these frequent disconnects have started a few days ago. I did experience disconnects in the past, but as nearly often as this. I can't attribute disconnects to activity/inactivity, as they seem to happen no matter what I do.
I upgraded from 9.0X to 10.04 on my Sony Vaio VGN-TZ398U which has an internal Sprint mobile broadband card. The card operates properly along with the wireless. The problem that I am having since upgrading is that the Network Manager Applet icon that looks like a cell phone bar display does not show in the notification area at all unless there is a known wireless (wifi) network nearby.
Clarification: If I am in my car, the icon does not show which then makes it impossible to connect using the mobile broadband functions of the Network Manager Applet ( version 0.8 ). If I am in my office with a known wireless network, the icon shows and then I can switch to the mobile card.
I have tried removing the notification area from the panel and adding it again. I have done the same with the indicator applet. Neither has solved this problem.
I am a user or consumer of Knoppix 5.1 and Knoppix 6.2, I see in 6.2 version a very usefully tool, an icon in task bar thats help my internet connection in auto, even if I use a mobile modem like Huawei E160, I only select a 'Auto Mobile Broadband (GSM) connection' and, voila, internet is active. Into version 5.1 don't exist this option. I need to find packages like network-manager.... and all relatives and install in 5.1 in correct order to success.
After today's squeeze update the nm-applet (it updated it to version 0.8.4-1) crashes when trying to connect to my vpn (pptp). I'm pretty new when it comes to this so I'm not sure what to do. I tried looking at the log file (applications--> system tools-->log file viewer) but I don't know what to make of it.
I have a k3806-z vodafone mobile broadband modem, on ubuntu 10.04. I have added the mobile broadband connection with the network manager wizard. But network manager does not list my connection. I installed usb-modeswitch and usb-modeswitch-data. Still nothing. The disc utility tells me it recognises the modem as a cd drive and a storage device. Evidently usb-modeswitch is not working.
I've not found how to configure more than one ip address with network manager.Nor with kde nor with plasmoid network manager.I need several virtual ip addresses for eth0 when the "default" of eth0 is connected i.e. "Connected to Auto eth0" should initialize the virtual interfaces.I have not found no even how to configure the ip address.I think this will be used from ifup config in yast or not?There I have the virtual interfaces but they are not taken from network manager.And last but no least: Is it possible that when using network manager the eth0 is enabled even no user has logged in?
I am using an Acer Aspire 5536 AMD dual core laptop with a 64bit installation of Susie 11.4. Using 11.2 I had no problems connecting to the wireless router. As soon as 11.4 was installed, clean install, and the laptop rebooted, network manager failed to start, until manually invoked and then enabling networking through the system tray. Even after this it will not connect to a wired or wireless network sometimes for more than 30 minutes.
I tried to install suse 11.4 on the new gnome desktop 3. everything seems to work except the network manager. Is not present in the bar and I can not restore it. tried to reinstall network manager but to no avail.Does anyone know how I could solve this problem
I recently installed OpenSUSE 11.2 and everything works fine except wi-fi card, of course. The problem is that after installation the system recognized the card (is was listed in network devices in Yast) but I was unable to enable it through network-manager applet. Though the device could make scanning through terminal (found article in docs but didn't fully understand wpa_gui). Then i was stupid enough to delete the device from Yast list to try to reinstall it. So the problem is that i simply can't do this cause i see no way to re-detect. That is the goal is to at least turn back to post-install system state and try to enable wifi card again.
When I attempt to connect to a wireless network, the network manager asks me for the network's password, then says 'setting network address' for 20 or so seconds, then asks me for some random Hex or ASCII key in the same type of window I put the password in (Secrets for Noel -- KDE Daemon). Since a key is already typed into the window, I press OK, which then causes the network manager to go back to 'setting network address', then the window pops up again and keeps repeating itself.
I'm running Opensuse 11.4 with KDE, and my driver is ath9k. I don't know much about linux so please don't tell me to 'recompile this' or 'change this setting' without explaining how to do it. Please help, I've been unable to connect to wireless in OpenSUSE for 2 weeks now.
Im new in this world of linux and suse. I have just installed the opensuse 11.2 in a Dell Inspiron 5160. Such laptop has a BCM4306 Wireless LAN controller. When I tried to configure a wlan connection, I found that the firmware was not installed. After looking in different forums, I installed the firmware b43. Now, my wlan card is abled to find the wireless of my router.
I have tried to configure a connection with YAST as well as with Network Manager, but both cases failled. Specifically, when I use Network manager, Im able to see in the applet my connection, how strong is the signal, but I see a yellow symbol (in one forum, such a box is shown with a green symbol).
I have check many time all about the secutity, encryption, and so one and all seems to be correct. But when I open the mozila firefox or the konqueror browser, no chance to surffer in internet. Now Im just a step to become crazy. The drivers are ok, the information about the router and the keys are ok, but in such a way, I am still harmloss.
All settings are correct as far as i can tell. The wep key works on all my windows boxes. When i have connect automatically enabled it never tries to connect. if I go to edit it it pops kde wallet up i put in credentials. wallet goes away then nothing happens. if i double click connection to my router also nothing happens. I have the wep key in there and i even made it visible to make sure.
I have just installed opensuse 11.3. I am absolutely new for Linux and for this forum. I have tried to open Network manager to configure my wlan. But its not starting. How to start network manager and configuring my wlan.
I mistakenly delete my default panel. How to add the network notifier? Tried to look for the widget but nothing? i need to choose my network connections. And when i look at the Network manager my wireless if black ? It means it didn't detected my wireless?
openSUSE 11.4 | SUSE Linux | Beginner's guide to multimedia codecs MP3 DVD 3D nvidia ati wireless wi-fi netbookplease see the second image under wireless driver installation in above link.it is a image of a network manager when we clicked the network manager icon in system tray.but i am not getting the like that.if i click that icon i will see only a small window only with enable networking,enable wireless and manage connections only.how to get a detailed windows like that in the image.
I'm putting a opensuse 11.4 64 bit KDE install on an HP -G62 laptop.
I also use an NFS network.
I want to use a wireless network.
The problem is that network manager keeps insisting on asking kwallet for permission to start up the network. As a consequence boot hangs because the nfs network can't find the files in /etc/fstab because the network can't start because you can't see kwallet until it finishes booting.
I have options set in networkmanager to store the password in connection secrets in secure storage, and it insists on asking kwallet!
I don't want to get rid of kwallet because it's very useful otherwise - just not at boot time?
