Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Impossible To Get Online

Jul 11, 2010

After installing 10.04 netbook remix on my acer aspire one, I have experienced all sorts of trouble. I can't get online, not with the wireless network, or with a usb-cable directly from the router. When I try to install the hardware drivers i get a message: there are no hardware drivers installed or something like that. There are no other OS on the harddrive, just 10.04 netbook remix. Another problem is the startup. Sometimes it boots right away, other times I've have to restart/reboot. 3-4 times before it works. How comes? Is there any way to download the missing packages/firmware to a usb-stick and then install it on the the netbook?

General :: Networking - Impossible To Run A Network Cable

Dec 16, 2010

I have a Verizon wireless/wired router that I access the internet through. I have a desktop computer running Slackware 13.1 i386, but it is in a place where it would be impossible to run a network cable to. Would you buy a USB wireless card? Would it work with Linux? Is there another way I can get my computer networked that I am not thinking of?

Ubuntu Networking :: Impossible To Connect Ubuntu And Windows 7?

Mar 26, 2011

I have a desktop PC with Windows 7 and a netbook with Ubuntu 10.04 netbook edition. The two computers are connected in a network with a Belkin modem router (the desktop PC is connected via cable and the netbook is connected wireless). I simply want to have access to some folders on Windows 7 from Ubuntu (I do not need the opposite), but I can not do it in any way. I tried following various guides on the net, I set the permissions of shared folders on Windows 7 (giving permission to everyone: everyone, guests and so on and so forth !)... but to no result. When I look for windows in Ubuntu's network folder, I see absolutely nothing. I also tried directly with nautilus smb:// (the network address of my computer-desktop), but every trial was useless. I always get a frustrating message: "Retrieving the list of shares from the server failed. " Someone can suggest a solution or which tests can I do to understand where the problem lies? Keep in mind that I'm not a linux expert,

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Get Online Wirelessly

Jan 6, 2010

I just bought an almost new netbook with the Ubuntu 9.10 netbook remix on it. It's made by System76 and was designed to work with Ubuntu. I downloaded Xubuntu-desktop and wicd and it now has a lot of software on it. It connects to the internet easily with a wired connection, but I cannot get it to find an ip address on my unencrypted home wireless network...it does see my network, though.I don't see the name of the hardware when I type sudo lspci. How can I find what chipset I have for my wireless device? A how to get online wirelessly?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Get Online With Dial-up

Jan 9, 2010

I'm having trouble getting online, and therefore getting software, codecs etc, (I'm using another computer for this post) because the only option I have to connect to the web is through 56k dial-up modem, and this is apparently akward with ubuntu. I'm currently trying to work out how to get Ubuntu to recognize my modem. I have over-written Vista, which was previously on my laptop, although I did make recovery discs (though I really don't want to have to use them).

This is making it difficult for me to even find the model of my modem (it would involve reinstalling Vista and checking for the device under device manager, or Vista equivalent).I was advised to download the "Official Ubuntu documentation", and that this had a 'how to' section regarding dial-up modems. I downloaded it and searched it and found nothing as such. I also have downloaded the Ubuntu pocket guide and found nothing on the topic in it either.I can get online (via dial-up) on my XP machine, and also have USB storage sticks.

Ubuntu Networking :: Upgraded To 9.10, Now Can't Get Online?

Mar 8, 2010

A couple of weeks ago I connected my desktop to the internet and upgraded Ubuntu. I haven't used it since then, until today, when I took the ethernet cord out of my laptop and stuck in in the desktop. The light next to the place you plug the cord in came on and Ubuntu tried to connect, but eventually it just said "You are now disconnected." I restarted and it continued to do this. I plugged the ethernet cord into the laptop and now I am online. What is going on here??

Networking :: Can't Get Online In Anything But Gnome?

Aug 20, 2010

I am so frustrated. I've gone through at least 20 distros in the last couple of days trying to find one that I like and will actually let me go online. I'm kinda bored of Gnome and want to try KDE again, but Knetworkmanager and even WICD don't let me get online. They recognize my wifi dongle, see the available networks, log me into them, tell me I'm connected and getting a good signal, but then I can't even ping Google! No pages will load. I've stumbled around all the network-managing and configuration screens, but nothing has worked.

Look, I'm clearly not a techie. I'm a happy end-user who's been exclusive with Mint for the last 2 years (PCLOS for a year before that) and I've never had to configure squat in either one of them, because they work perfectly out of the box. I'm not opposed to punching stuff into a terminal if it comes down to that, but I'd rather not have to...

Anyway, what can I do to fix this? (My wifi dongle works fine. I just tried it in Mint again.) For the record, the top three distros I'm considering are Sidux, Sabayon K and OpenSuse. I'm not getting internet on those. Ah, and the Mint KDE edition either.

Ubuntu Networking :: Script To Mount Share Only If Online?

Jan 17, 2010

I'm trying to make this script that can check if the computer is online using

ping -c2 $HOST | grep 'received' | awk -F',' '{ print $2}' | awk '{ print $1}'
and then run

gvfs-mount smb://address

to mount the share. The idea is to have it check every five seconds or something until it finds the connection. writing the script because I don't really know about programming.

Ubuntu Networking :: Online Backup Via Proxy Server?

Jun 6, 2010

Some time ago, while I was still using Ubuntu 8.10 I began accessing Internet through a proxy server. Even though I had set my system proxy settings - including authentication - to pass the proxy, my online backup service (Jungle Disk) stopped connecting. I finally figured out that I had to include proxy port in the Jungle Disk Desktop tool's configuration (like this: That worked fine until I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 - with the identical proxy setup. This time I can't get any connection at all. Here's the Jungle Disk report:

Connection Test Failed

Networking :: Can't Get Slackware Online With New Modem

Apr 5, 2010

A couple of months ago, I replaced a broken down modem for my DSL connection. I've learned time and again that Verizon is completely of no help to Linux customers, and so any problems I ever experience, I''m pretty much on my own. These days, I am running no windows whatsoever. Previously, when I got a new modem I would run verizon's windows software to set up the modem for DHCP, and then any distro I chose to run wo0uld connect automatically.

Well, without the ability to run windows, it's a lot more problematic. I have only managed to get some debian-based distros online by running an application called pppoeconf or pppoe-config. No slackware, and since a few months ago I released my own live CD that's based on Slax, this is embarassing and frustrating to say the least. DNS, pppoe, TCP/IP... this is not my thing.

Now I've got Slackware 13 installed, and I've been running netconfig and pppoe-setup, and according to the results I get when I run pppoe-status, I should be online :

And here is where I was supposed to have posted the results of my non-error messsage, but I don't seem to have saved it from the last time I was loggen into slackware. Looks like I'll have to do it again

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired Network Active But Cant Connect Online?

Feb 20, 2010

Yesterday I moved my modem (wireless) to my living room so the PS3 detected a better signal. In doing so, I had to run a new ethernet cable from my living room where the modem is into my office where the computer is. I use ubuntu 9.10

For some reason I cannot connect to the internet now. When I scroll over the connection, it says wire connection 1 is active. I have my settings manually set. I did notice the MAC address field is blank...

I didn't have an issue before, but with changing cables and whatnot, something got messed up somehow.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Stay Online/problems Logging On?

Sep 15, 2010

What happens is that it seems the system has problems logging onto the wireless network. Once I have tipped in the router access code it sometimes logs on immediately, but most of the time it keeps searching for a long time before logging on if at all.Once I have a connection established it is very unstabile. After a few minutes it logs off and starts searching for the network again, asking for the access code every 2 or 3 minutes. Sometimes it finds the network again and sometimes not.As you can probably understand, this significantly reduces the euphoric enthusiasm over having sacked mr. Bill Gates from my life. I should mention at this point that I am a regular pc user with little indepth knowledge and experience so any advice has to be like teaching a bonobo monkey rocket science.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Worked For A While Then Stopped Working - Can't Get Online

Jun 18, 2011

I had 10.10, and all was well. Then I installed natty, and WiFi worked for a while, then stopped working. I later went back to 10.10, and WiFi still isn't working. The WiFi icon in the top bar looks like it's scanning. But it just keeps on scanning, continuously. Then it asks me for the password, so it obviously connects to something if it knows the network needs a password.

But here's the weird thing, my router also creates a BT Open Network, which I think is some pay service that BT offer, apparently through anyone's wifi since it's not password protected. I can connect to that. But not the actual network that leads to the internet. This happened a while back, and of course I can't install any updates on it because I can't get online. I am writing this from XP on the same computer, and XP can connect to the network no problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Get Through The HUB - Can't Make My Server Go Online - Asks For Some Linksys Authorisation

Apr 1, 2010

When my pc is connected directly to the LAN modem, my server can go online, ip connects to the domain and everything is cool.

When my pc connected to the router which is connected to the modem, I can't make my server go online. It asks for some linksys authorisation.

How can I teach my server to ignore my router and go directly to the modem. Unfortunately I can't just connect my server to the modem couse 3 more PCs are connected with the hub.

Networking :: WPA2 Network - Ndiswrapper Wireless - Ubuntu 9.04 - Reset Router To Get Online

Apr 1, 2010

I've been having a network problem that I've been able to temporarily solve by rebooting the router, but even that can be shaky at times, and it can sometimes disturb others' internet activites, so I'd really like to tackle this while I can. I had an old thread about this, but it's ancient history by now, and plus which, I've got a bit more Linux experience and patience than I did before.

The basic problem is that NetworkManager will associate and connect to my home wireless network, but a) it won't let me ping the router or anywhere else ("Destination Host Unreachable"), and b) the connection lasts for maybe a couple minutes at most. If I reset the router, however, 9 times out of 10 it will associate and connect successfully and I can get online, but I have to run a constant ping to the router with a 10-second interval, otherwise it drops the connection, unless I'm doing a lot of other heavy network activity.

ping (the router):


I've tried wpa_supplicant, but this is what I get (it's apparently unsuccessful...? ESSID/MAC addresses censored where necessary):


The last prompt line is included because I cancelled it myself; it didn't abort on its own. If left unmonitored, it basically keeps doing this over and over, with no visible network activity at all.

With NetworkManager, I can keep selecting the network's ESSID over and over, and it seems to reconnect, but I still can't ping out anywhere. I'm using a Netgear WN111v1 wireless adapter with ndiswrapper and the Windows drivers. I have no idea what the chipset is, and I doubt that Linux drivers exist for it, even if I knew what it was. The router is using WPA2 security (hence my trying wpa_supplicant)



ifconfig wlan0 (while connected; IP/MAC addresses censored where needed):


ifconfig wlan0 (while not connected; IP/MAC addresses censored where needed):



I only include this for format checking purposes. The commented out "psk" is the actual text passphrase, while the uncommented one is (presumably) a hex representation of the same key. Is this correct? I've never done this with wpa_supplicant before, I've only used NetworkManager (which is a pain in the @$$ because it requires X to run, and so it disconnects any time I log out/back in ).

Is there any hope of getting my wireless connection permanently working, so that I don't have to reset the router every time I need to reboot or log out/back in?

Fedora Networking :: Netgear WG111v2 Wireless Adapter Won't Stay Online

Jan 28, 2010

I just installed Fedora 12 on my HP a430n PC.I used to run Fedora 10, then moved to Linux Mint 7, then to Ubuntu 9.10 and now I am back to Fedora because I want to become more adept with manual package installation and adding repos.When I ran Fedora 12 immediately after then install, before running yum update PackageKit or the software update, it would use my wireless adapter (Netgear WG111v2) and connect to and stay connected to a network just fine. No hiccups.After running the updates and restarting the computer, the wlan won't stay connected for longer than 20 seconds, which is frustrating when trying to install mp3 codecs.

This seems to be a bug in the latest driver update for the WG111v2, but I might be wrong. Anyone have a fix or a way to revert back to the initial driver (I don't know what the original wireless driver was called).

Ubuntu :: Impossible To Type 'a' Letter In Terminal / Make It Possible?

May 27, 2010

Since 2 days, when I type the lowercase 'a' letter in a terminal, nothing is written (it's not the case for the uppercase 'A' letter).
The matter appears with all terminal's software (guake, Terminal, xterm...).
The only way for me to type the 'a' letter is to type 'Insert' key before.
I tried many solutions but the matter is still here.
Here, there is some clarifications and some solutions I tried:
-If I copy and paste a text, 'a' don't appears. For example, if i try to copy and paste
'sudo apt-get install'
'sudo pt-get instll' will appears
-The matter appears 2 days ago. Before that, I removed the .gconf file
-It's not a fresh installation of ubuntu but an update from karmic to lucid. When i was under karmic, I was using KDE. Then I did an upgrade, then I tried Xubuntu and Lubuntu and finally I moved to Ubuntu. The first week under Ubuntu (Gnome) was without any matter and 2 days ago, this matter appeared.

-I tried this following command line:
xmodmap -pke >fichier.conf
and the file called "fichier.conf" (I'm french) contains this line:
keycode 24 = a A a A ae AE ae AE

-When I type this line:
printf "x61
a 'a' appears in my terminal.

-In tty1 and all the other programs, 'a' appears without any trouble

-I tried with other users in my computer but the matter is still the same no matter wich user I use.

-I tried to change fonts of my environment and I also tried to change fonts only for the terminal but whithout success.

-I tried to change the layout of my keyboard.
