Slackware :: Wireless Card Currently Idle / Can It Be Used As Access Point?

May 17, 2011

i'm running slack 13.37. my machine has a "generic" wireless card which is currently sitting idle in it, since i used a wired interface for internet and local networking (i used the wireless interface for a while, but for what i need it wasn't a reliable or stable enough connection). my question is, can the idle card be used as a wireless access point on a separate subnet? if so how?

Networking :: Info About Access Point Of Wireless Card Connection

Jun 26, 2011

I am trying to figure out how I can see which access point my wireless card is connected to. I have a slackware system and. Basically, I know my card is connected to something, because firefox can do a google search, but I'm not sure what network it is connected to, since there are a couple open networks in my apt complex. Is there a command to list the ssid? that I'm connect to? and, I'm new to all this so I'm not sure if ssid is the correct term. I have a consumer grade netgear wireless "router" that I bought from bestbuy which has a "passphrase".

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless: Can't Associate With Access Point In Kde, Wireless In Gnome Works Fine?

one of these "WiFi works in Gnome, not in KDE" threads, but I have been all over google and hundreds of threads across different sites and can't figure this one out.As mentioned, wireless is peachy in Gnome, unfortunately I like KDE and I'm more productive using it (when I have internet).

Slackware :: Wifi Access Point Security

Apr 2, 2011

Whilst my office is decorated I have to move my computer. To make this as easy as possible I have setup my first ever wifi. An access point (wired to adsl router). It is working by using wicd and I am wireless at the moment. What security should I put in place (wicd says unsecured). I am probably quite safe as the nearest road or house is 200m away but I would like to learn what I need to do as this is the first time in over 20 years of computing that I have gone wireless.

Debian Hardware :: Using Wireless NIC As Access Point

Aug 15, 2010

So theres this project I'm going to try working on during my free time and part of it includes using a wireless NIC as an access point. The way I see it, if a wireless NIC can send and receive wireless signals to a wireless router/WAP, why can't it be treated like one as a router/WAP? A router is a specialized computer after all.From what I heard this idea is possible but I'm having trouble finding results, since search engines don't know exactly what I'm talking about. Does anybody have any idea how I can accomplish this?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Access Point Not Recognized?

Sep 19, 2010

I decided to change my DSL internet connection to cable and WiFi. So far so good, and under Windows, the system is very well working.

I use openSuse 11.1 but I can't establish contact between my computer and the new Wireless N acces point.

I have a Ralink network card, which functions under Windows.

/usr/bin/lsusb gives this result : bus 001 device 006 ID 148f:2573 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2501 Wireless adapter

dmesg | less gives (amongst others !) - so my card is recognized :

usb 1-1.2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
usb 1-1.2: New USB device found, idVendor=148f, idProduct=2573
usb 1-1.2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0

[Code]....

The wireless access point I bought from the cable company is a D-Link Model DIR-615 which should be capable of IEEE 802.11 b/g/n. I have its MAC ID.

When in YAST, I want to make my computer hook on to my D-Link router (my new access point), I go to YAST Manage Network Wireless and I want to fill in BSSID, I get stuck.

OK, what I want to do, I think is possible but I dont kno name of it or how 2 do it under even windows for that matter. I have my current PC connected via Ethernet directly to my house router. Now on this Motherboard, I also have a wireless nic that I have no plans on usin. Can I turn it in2 an access point/wifi for other devices like iPods, Wii, Labtops, ect?Also, how would I do it if not Wifi, use the other Ethernet port to plug up say a labtop. In which the labtop uses the net I am getting from the router?

General :: Connect A Wireless Router To Another Access Point?

Aug 19, 2011

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.

The network:

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.

My goals:

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?

Ubuntu Networking :: Setting Up Wireless Access Point?

Jan 13, 2010

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.

Code:

lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 735 Host (rev 01)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] Virtual PCI-to-PCI bridge (AGP)

[code]....

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).

Ubuntu Networking :: Help Setting Up Wireless Access Point

Nov 7, 2010

I'm trying to set up a wireless access point and router using Ubuntu 10.10. My machine has an Atheros AR5001X+ PCI card, and eth0 is connected to an ADSL modem.After literally days and days of going in circles, I'm hoping that somebody here can help get me on track.This sort of works, though I had to go through some other contortions to get the madwifi driver to finally compile on my machine.At this point, I can see and connect to the WAP, but nothing more. When I try "sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart",

I also have a second problem, which is that I want to use WebMin to manage this server, but I cannot figure out how to get the ADSL client module configured -- RP-PPPoE version 3. It seems to expect to work with pppoe-start, pppoe-stop, and pppoe-status, but when I try to run pppoe-status it says "Link is down", even though my ppp connection is actually working.Is is possible to use the WebMin ADSL client module with Ubuntu? I spent a lot of time trying to get pppoe-start, stop, etc. working but it was a complete mess and never seemed to behave. Finally, I just put the ppp startup commands into the /etc/network/interfaces file and that worked, but now the pppoe-* commands no longer seem to function.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless - Will Not Connect To Any Access Point

Nov 30, 2010

I installed it alongside Win XP, using Wubi, and it seems I use Ubuntu 10.04.Everything worked out as expected, and my wired internet connection works like a dream.However:My wireless connection seem a little buggy.I can see all networks (except WPA2) so even if I want to fix the WPA2 problem, I'd rather just open my network for now.

So my network is now open, I see it in the NetworkManager list, and as i try to connect, the following happens:The wireless symbol start flashing. From here it keeps flashing, untill it gives up.I use RT2870 drivers, and D-Link DWA-140 USB wireless adapter.

It goes without saying I am a freshman regarding Linux, so if anyone knows what to do, and cares to take the time to tell me, please do tell me in a detailed manner.I do know the basics of the Terminal, and yes, I do know how to copy/paste commands I find linux way more satisfying than Windows so far ... And thanks in advance for giving away your time More info can be given upon request (You might have to explain how to find that specific info)

But I've since had the need to shutdown X and keep a simple terminal instance open but as soon as I stop gdm the connection to the router drops. Trying to connect via the terminal using wpa_supplicant has so far been unsuccessful.

I know for a fact I'm doing something wrong, just don't know what and would appreciate some help!

Networking :: Share Internet Through A Wireless Access Point?

Aug 8, 2010

I started using Arch just a few days ago. forward traffic to the Wireless access point I created on arch. i am using cable internet (ppp0) which I want to share via a usb wifi adapter running as a WAP. I followed the instructions in this link to enable the AP mode. Afterwards I followed the instructions provided in the Arch Wiki to forward the traffic but because of my inexperience I am still unable to connect to the internet. Here is the output of iptables -nvL :

Slackware :: Hostapd With Dhcpd On Current Rt2561 - Can't Connect To Access Point

Jul 29, 2010

I am trying to make my computer an access point for a PS3 to connect to directly. I'm not too bothered about it behaving as a router, just a direct connection would be sufficient. I have installed hostapd from slackbuilds.org and followed the guide given at [URL]. Hostapd seems to work ok - it creates a new interface called mon.wlan0 and I can see the access point from my netbook but I can't connect to it. I think the problem is with dhcpd. Here's my /etc/dhcpd.conf:

Debian Hardware :: Wireless - Connecting To The Same Unencrypted Access Point

Jun 1, 2010

My wireless is 'almost' working, but frustratingly not quite there. Debian Testing (squeeze). I have two different wireless adapters. Both work flawlessly from an ubuntu live CD in the same machine, connecting to the same unencrypted access point so the problem is not faulty hardware, weak signal, overpowering signal, interference from other AP's, MAC filtering, or anything to do with WPA.

I have loaded the correct (I think) firmware packages for both adapters. dmesg is not complaining about missing or incompatible firmware. I have googled the various error messages reported in dmesg and found that the /etc/Wireless/RT2860STA/RT2860STA.dat missing config file is normal. I could not find anything that I understood concerning the BSS returned, data->length messages but since I see the same thing in Ubuntu (where the wireless is working flawlessly) I assume they are also normal and not related to the problem.

Both adapters can see all the available access points (using iwlist {iface} scan or using gui tools such as wicd, wifi-radar) NEITHER adapter will associate with any access point (and I've tried three different unencrypted AP's so far). I can connect to all/any of these AP's from an ubuntu live CD using the exact same hardware, so this is NOTHING to do with MAC filtering, etc... using 'iwconfig {iface} essid' as root to set the essid "appears" to work, but simple does not set the ESSID on either wireless adapter.

Using the GUI tools (which are only a front end for the command line tools so I have no idea why everyone thinks a GUI front end like wicd will magically work where the command line tools don't!!) I simply wait a long time for "getting network address" before it eventually fails. LOTS of information in pastebin, please make the effort to read it before asking me for things I have already supplied. And please keep any "RTFM noob" or "go back to ubuntu" replies to yourself. I HAVE read the f*cking documentation and I do not want to go back to ubuntu. I just want to get my wireless working in debian.

Fedora Installation :: 10 - Wireless Setup - Connect To The Access Point

I am quite new in Linux and start trying by using Fedora. I installed Fedora 10 on an old PC. I installed once and Fedora 10 recognized my wireless USB finger. Well after some setting but I cannot recall teh exact details. Due to certain reasons, I have to re-install Fedora 10. However, this time the wireless device is not working (The system recognized it and the driver is working ok but not able to connect to the access point and I caanot find a place to check the available wireless network list. I used WEP password protection so need to see the network list and select the network for prompt of the password entry.)

Fedora Networking :: RT2500 Wireless Access Point Not Showing Up

Jun 23, 2010

I'm new to Linux and I have a problem with the Wireless connection.I've already searched for this problem but found so many threads it was impossible to sort it out.I've just installed Fedora 13 (Live CD - Install to Hard Drive) and apparently it's kinda... "empty". But my problem is with the wireless connection. There is a free network provided by my city for all the citizens. It is Open (authentication) for all. The problem is I can't "see" the network in Feodra. In Windows 7 I can "see" it just fine with 3 bars signal strength. It is great for surfing and emails. It is not intended for heavy downloading.

Why can't I "See" this network? There is another weird thing. The neighbor above me has a Wireless access point closed of course but I get 44% signal strength in Fedora and Full bars in Windows. Does it have to do anything? Maybe the low signal of the free network is the problem and Fedora makes it disappear completely?
