OpenSUSE Wireless :: Network Manager Stuck On 'setting Network Address' Then Continuously Prompts For Hex Or ASCII Key

May 28, 2011

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.

OpenSUSE Network :: Setting Up Wireless On HP Pavilion Dv5?

Jan 25, 2010

I've just installed OpenSUSE 11.2 w/KDE interface on a HP Pavilion dv5-1010us laptop.Now we're trying to get the wireless to work. It's got a built-in wireless adapter, but we're not sure what kind of adapter it is. HP's Website is no help there. According to another site, it's an Intel WifiLink 5100. I did download the wireless driver from the HP site, but it's a .exe file. Anyone had any luck setting up this or a similar HP laptop. I couldn't find this model on the HCL/Laptops/HP - openSUSE page, but it seems OpenSUSE supports wireless other HP Pavilion models.

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.3 - WEP Key Entered But No Wireless Connection

Mar 9, 2011

I have installed opensuse 11.3. I am unable to connect to my wireless connection. KNetworkManager finds the connection (when I scan for connections), I can enter the WEP Hex key, it says it is configured. Goes through its "check list" when you click "ok", and all seems good. But it won't connect. When I run "nm-tool" I get:
State: unknown
WARNING **: error: could not connect to NetworkManager
Just ridiculous, brand new, up to date OS, and its this difficult to connect to a wireless router!

OpenSUSE Network :: Working Wireless Connection But No Internet / What To Do?

Jan 15, 2010

I've installed opensuse 11.2 on an old IBM thinkpad. The install went without a hitch and when I got to the desktop I inserted my Dlink DWL-G132 wireless USB adapter. Opensuse immediately recognised that a wireless device was attached and I could see my wireless network listed. I entered my WPA password and was able to connect to my routers configuration page by entering 192.168.0.1 in the URL bar of firefox. For some reason I am unable to navigate to any webpage. When I enter a URL firefox acts as though there is no internet connection. The only way I can get the internet on my laptop is to connect it to my router with a cable. I used a wired connection and ran the update utility thinking that perhaps an update would fix the issue but it did not. I know the adapter works because the laptop used to have windows xp installed and I could connect fine with that.

Does anyone here have any idea why I would be able to connect wirelessly to the routers configuration page but not to the internet? I appreciate any advice anyone may have.

OpenSUSE Network :: Wireless Connection Must Be Reconfigured After Hibernation

Mar 6, 2010

I have been running SUSE 11.1 on my HP laptop for over a year. For the most part, I am thrilled with it. However, when I awaken the computer from hibernation mode, I have to go into the Network Settings applet proceed with the wizard in order to get my wireless connection working.

Another irritating aspect is that if I go to a place with a Wireless Hotspot, the computer doesn't automatically pick it up. Again, I have to go through the Network Settings applet to get it working.

I want this to work as it does on Windows XP/Vista where I can put the computer to sleep and when I awaken it, then the wireless connection is automatically there for me, etc.

I have to think I probably need to tweak a setting somewhere, so if someone can tell me where to do this, great!

I am using an internal wireless card (Atheros AR928X PCI-EXPRESS). If you need additional info, let me know.

OpenSUSE Network :: Wireless Connection Can't Access Websites

Mar 7, 2010

I just installed Opensuse 11.2 dual-booting with Windows 7 on a laptop. I have the wireless set up and connected, but I can't seem to be able to connect to any websites or ping Google, etc.I'm kind of a Linux newbie, so I'd like to get some advise as to what I can check to get it working? (Windows 7 on the same machine is able to connect - I'm using it now)

- I've tried both automatic DHCP configuration and also setting the ip/dns server manually, no luck

OpenSUSE Wireless :: BCM4311 Unable To Make Connection - But Can See Network?

Apr 23, 2011

I think I've read every post here about the Broadcom and connection.I thought I tried everything.Turns out (read Chapter�35.�Using NetworkManager) using Connection Manager (K Network Manager) you can not use, what I wanted to use, 'all users, use connection' or said another way, the wifi would be activated and connected Before the user 'logs in'. Well, as I said, it turns out that if you are using gnome, this will work with NetMgr, but NOT in KDE. If you want to use 'system connect' then you have to use 'traditional' if in YaST2. Oh well, at least 'i'm' connected.... (i'm the only user, so not a big deal right now, but would like to get it working...)

OpenSUSE Install :: 10.3 Network - Configure Ethernet Connection Or Wireless Card

Oct 2, 2010

I installed 10.3 (after buying it a couple of years ago and letting sit on the shelf) and can't get it to configure my ethernet connection or my wireless card. Yast doesn't include a list of available cards, and the error I get in installation-network setup is that the kernel isn't present. The machine I'm installing this on is a Lenovo, in which there isn't a discrete ethernet card (it's in the motherboard), but my wireless card (a Cisco LINKSYS 802.11G) is a discrete card. Because I'm divorcing Microsoft for a number of valid reasons, I don't have Windows available on that box.

OpenSUSE Network :: KNetworkManager Connection - Never Obtain An IP Address From Wireless Router

Feb 24, 2010

I have an open WEP wireless internet connection with a security key. KNetworkManager can never obtain an IP address from my wireless router, but I know that the router works because Windows can connect correctly and Ubuntu's NetworkManager can connection correctly. Does anyone know what is happening? KNetworkManager just asks for my security again and again and again after it fails to connect.

OpenSUSE Network :: Connecting To Home Wireless In 11.3 - No Connection (websites Will Not Load)

Jan 22, 2011

I've just installed openSUSE 11.3 for the first time on a Dell E1505 notebook and am having problems connecting to my home wireless network. Using the Network Manager I've been able to find my home network and connect after entering the network password. After a minute or two the wireless network is still shown as active but their is no connection (websites will not load).

I'm completely new to Linux so I have almost no clue what could be causing this. I have tried connecting the notebook hardwired (Ethernet) to the router and get a perfect connection if that information helps any.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Internet Connection Stops When Plug In Local Network?

Jul 25, 2011

I have a wireless cable modem/router and a PCI-E 1x wireless card in my desktop PC. It works perfectly until I connect my Ethernet cable to my local router and printer, no more internet connection. I am guessing there is a setting somewhere that tells the networking software that the hard wire connection is the primary internet gateway. How do I tell it to use the wireless as the primary gateway?

Ubuntu :: Setting Up Wireless Connection?

May 15, 2010

I am having some trouble setting up my wireless connection. I have a desktop version of ubuntu, and am trying to connect wirelessly to my modem, but it dosent even seem to be recognizing my wireless usb card. How do I get it to do that? Also, when I go to set up new wireless connection, it asks me for my ssid, mac address, mode, bssid, MTC, Wep index, authentication, ipv4 setting, and ipv6 settings. What the heck am I supposed to put in for those things?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Setting Up A Wireless Connection?

Jun 11, 2010

I'm having a bit of trouble setting up a wireless connection. I'm really trying to set it up for Lucid Lynx on another partition, but right now I'm on OS X running Jaunty Jackalope in Sun's VirtualBox. Neither auto-recognize the network I'm trying to connect too (don't know if Ubuntu has that feature), but OS X has a good connection. I'm trying to set up Jaunty first since I at least have some internet connection, but I'm not planning on using it that much.

So far, what I have put into the Network setup application is the network's name (SSID, right?), that it's WPA, and the network password. Though now I've checked back on the password field, the 8 digit password (eight circles) has been replaced with a bunch of circles, so I don't know what's up with that.

What's empty is the BSSID field, the MAC address, and for all intents and purposes, the password field since it's not the same as what I put in there. I assume OS X has a copy of this information somewhere since it's already connected? I've tried quite a few attempts to get either Ubuntu system to connect, and my google-fu is not helping.

Fedora Networking :: Setting Up F10 For Wireless Connection (Ralink RT2870)?

Apr 20, 2009

I have recently installed Fedora 10 onto my PC, dual booting with XP, and I am fairly new to linux. I have been trying to connect to my wireless network, but cannot even get Fedora to recognise my wireless adapter (Belkin N1 +MIMO). I have tried to follow a few tutorials that go through either the ndiswrapper method or by using native drivers. Because I don't have an internet connection on Fedora, I have to boot into XP to download the files for either ndiswrapper or the native drivers, rather than installing using the terminal.I downloaded the ndiswrapper RPM, and it failed because of an 'unexpected error', and when using the tarball, it could not find the makefile. The native drivers did not install because of unresolved dependencies.

General :: Setting Up The Alternative Ad-hoc Connection In Case Primary Wireless Fails?

Jul 2, 2011

I have a device that is only accessible using wireless. By default it starts an ad-hoc wireless I can connect to. The problem is there is no internet access on the ad-hoc. So I'm connecting it to my router using the commands (its a gnu/linux):

iwconfig ath0 mode managed essid "ESSID"
ifconfig ath0 192.168.1.25 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
route add default gw 192.168.1.1

I want to add it to start up script but I don't want to get locked out of the device forever if something happens to the router (its really old). Is there any way to check if the connection failed and create an ad-hoc instead if it failed?

OpenSUSE Network :: Wireless Connection Says "active" But Nothing Connects?

Jul 2, 2010

During the installation of Opensuse 11.2, I tried the wireless internet connection, and it kept coming back failed.I continued to install the system and when I got on, I entered the SSID (think that's the right way to say it), and the password.When showing that 'map' or whatever, it showed the SSID in the networkmanager.It also said "active".But when clicking on Mozilla Firefox, nothing happened. It just said the server is down.I'm on another Linux system now; so I know the wireless works. It worked great on a third one as well.It is some Atheros Communications, AR5001.I'm not sure what other information you need. Just let me know and I will do what I can to provide. I don't have opensuse up at the moment. I screwed up the dual boot. so right now it's been erased. I'll ask for help on that in another topic.

But sometimes when the desktop loads, the wifi icon is still loading and keeps stuck at "setting network address". Since this problem happens randomly I really don't know what is happening here. My wifi chip is this:

This is the problem:

Fedora Networking :: Samba And Network Manager In 9 - Setting Up A Wired Connection?

Feb 3, 2009

I have 2 workstations that I'm trying to network together so that I can backup each to the other. One is XP sp2 and the other Fedora 9. Since installing Samba on the Fedora box and trying to get it configured, I have a problem that Add/remove programs won't do installs because it says there's no connection to a network. Network Manager says there aren't any connections, but it worked before the Samba install. Mozilla and Thunderbird can access the internet OK. Both workstations are connected by cable to my router and thus to my ISP (DNS server).

Two questions:- where can I find hints on setting up a wired connection (which card's MAC address does it want? router or wrkstn?) and Am I right that Add/remove is stuffed because of Network Manager?I now have Samba working from Linux to XP, but still can't get into Linux from XP. I tried the Linux PC's MAC address and set up a wired connection in Network Manager. NM still thinks there isn't one...
