Ubuntu Networking :: 9.10 Where's Dialup Modem On Thinkpad X60s?

Jan 13, 2010

Ubuntu 9.10: where's my dialup modem on my thinkpad X60s?

I'm trying to use "GNOME PPP" to connect by dialup, and it complains that it can't find my builtin modem. But XP can, and that's what I'm using at this moment. XP says the modem is on COM3.

I tried using several "/dev/tty*" entries in the GNOME-PPP setup, but none of the ones I tried worked. The GNOME-PPP default is "/dev/modem", but none such is mounted.

Is there some way I can find out where the modem is mounted, if it is? Or else, how can I mount the modem properly and test it?

Fedora Networking :: F12 Dialup Modem Not Working / Fix It?

Nov 26, 2009

I have F9, F10, F11 and F12 installed along with WinXP on my desktop PC. I connect to the internet thru 56K dialup modem (USR-5610B). The earlier versions of Fedora, F9, F10 and F11, all can connect via dialup modem.

My F12 installation is augmented with the following rpms - kudzu-, libwvstreams-4.6-5.fc12.i686 and wvdial-1.60.10.fc12.i686 (and the rpm for USR-5610B modem)

Network Configuration GUI shows ppp0 (Modem) in the Common Active Profile

However, ppp0 does NOT show up in the Network Device Control GUI, AND ACTIVATE and DEACTIVATE buttons are GREYED-OUT.

I had started another thread about this but had a terrible subject line. Others may have this issue.Found the answer deep in the bowels of documentation. My question now is " did version 20 mess this up for everyone with dialup"?

Ubuntu Networking :: Dialup Modem Computer As Internet Sharing Gateway To Wireless Access?

Mar 4, 2011

I am wanting a computer with an external dialup modem (ppp0 modem through a com port /dev/ttys1) to act as a gateway to the internet, forwarding internet traffic through ethernet (eth0 is set to static to a router (the router is where it will be broadcast to other wireless computers like my laptop ( I've had this setup until recently when the gateway computer (the one with the modem) died. Now I'm replacing that machine with another box and an install of Ubuntu 10.10 but so far things aren't working for me.

Success so far:I have dialup access working on the new box. Took me a while to work out the configuration for getting dialup working, though the IP address is Dynamic (or it won't stay connected), "Check carrier line" is off, and "Ignore Terminal Strings (stupid mode)" is on in order to successfully connect and stay connected to my ISP. I also had to make my normal (non-root) user "lancer" a member of the "pid" group (the reboot) in order to use gnome-ppp as non-root. The laptop ( is successfully connecting to the router ( as I can see the router configuration page when I type into the laptop's web browser. This setup is unchanged from how I had it before when this was previously working and I don't want to change how the router itself is set up. What I want is to know what to fix in the new box in order to get it connected to the router (through ethernet) and bridging the internet through.

My problem is that whenever I plug in the eth0 from the gateway ( to the router (, Ubuntu's automatic plug-me-in network detection kicks in and I find my dialup no longer working through some kind of IP conflict (at least that's what I think it is). Maybe I don't have the "gateway" correctly assigned? (in the gateway computer for the ethernet connection, I had it pointing to itself as I don't know what to put for "gateway IP" as that is automatic So, just to check my connection, here I am pinging google (from the gateway computer which has the dialup modem) once a dialup connection has been made.

lancer@lancer-desktop:~$ ping www.google.com
PING www.l.google.com ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_req=1 ttl=55 time=179 ms
64 bytes from icmp_req=2 ttl=55 time=176 ms
64 bytes from icmp_req=3 ttl=55 time=158 ms


What do I need to do in order to make Ubuntu of my gateway computer stay connected to my dialup but also simultaneously share an ethernet LAN to my wireless router and feed traffic to the other computers from there? I have googled this but some of the most promising instruction (e.g. http://www.ubuntugeek.com/sharing-in...in-ubuntu.html) call for packages like dnsmasq or ipmasq which seem defunct now in Ubuntu 10.10. Other pages seem to suggest dual-networks "can't be done" in Ubuntu [URL].. (what!?! I had it before my other gateway died)

Networking :: Pages Not Loading Randomly On Dialup

Jan 31, 2011

I am currently using Open SuSE 11.3 and connect to the internet through a fixed wireless terminal (CDMA Wireless modem), Huawei ETS-1201 with BSNL connection. The problem is that, after dialling and connecting to the internet, some pages dont load randomly. Sometimes, Google loads quite fine, but other times, it is just stuck and I have to reload the page several times. When I connect through Windows, I have no such problem. I have used Fedora, Ubuntu and Sabayon but the same problem exists. I don't want to return to Windows but is frustrated with my web experience on linux.

Ubuntu Networking :: Thinkpad Won't Connect To Wirelessmrouter?

I am using a Thinkpad T41 with Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 mini pci wireless adapter using Ubuntu 10.04
I had no problems with connection to a Livebox router using WEP security, but I've just changed ISP to Virgin with a Netgear router - this won't work, as I'm told that it doesn't support Ubuntu, but I've connected a spare Linksys router to it, which works fine with my ipod touch and is detected by my Thinkpad, but I can't connect. It's using WPA security, and I'm asked for authentification but it never connects. Ethernet connection is fine, but as I'm currently stuck in bed after an operation I'd like a wireless connection

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.10 - Disable PRO / Wireless 2915ABG (Thinkpad X41)

Feb 19, 2010

I use this Thinkpad mostly for work while traveling, and wireless connectivity is not a big issue for me. Battery life is a big issue, however. I've just converted from Mandriva. With that, I was able to disable the wireless adapter so that it did nothing at all on boot - and only started on my instruction. This made a dramatic difference to battery life! How to achieve this in Ubuntu? The file attached gives all the info about my wireless set-up as it stands.

Ubuntu Networking :: Thinkpad T60P W/ Atheros AR5008?

Apr 24, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 9.1 on a Thinkpad T60P with an Atheros Ar5008 wireless network card. The problem I am having is that I can find my network name and it will even ask me for my password; however, when I type everything in, it seems to be connecting but never does and asks me for my password again. I have verified my password is correct and that my router is using WPA. Anyone else having this problem and is there a way to fix it? I believe the system is using the atk9 drivers.

Ubuntu Networking :: ThinkPad Running 8.04 Not Showing Ethernet?

Apr 6, 2011

My professor gave me an older ThinkPad, i1161, because he wants me to learn linux. So far, I successfully downloaded Hardy Heron onto the computer, using the Alternate version. Everything works great, and I can log on, play games, go into word processor, the whole nine yards. Unfortunately, the computer won't connect to the ethernet cable that I have plugged in. I am not sure what I am doing wrong, but that is probably because I don't know where to begin.

I also get an error message during boot, it says "ACPI no DMI Bios year" then it says "ACPI=force is required to enable ACPI. I don't know what this means, but I fugured it might have something to do with the ethernet.I am connecting through my University internet. Also, under Network Settings ->Connections, it only has one option, "Point to point connection" and it says "This network interface is not configured."

Ubuntu Networking :: 11.04/Thinkpad E420/wireless Not Working

May 29, 2011

I have a Thinkpad E420 and am having major problems getting the RTL8188ce wireless to work. I'm running 64-bit. I was following instructions from this thread: [URL]

I installed the drivers from the Realtek website for the updated kernel (URL is in the previous thread link). Modprobe didn't work, but it looked like wireless drivers were installed anyway after I did "make install." But I still run into this problem in the network manager: Enable Wireless is checked, but above it, Wireless Networks is greyed out with "wireless is disabled" underneath.

Later in that thread, someone posted a link to a PPA with drivers that should work. I could not get the PPA to work through terminal, but I did manually download and install those drivers. Same problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Drivers For Brand New Thinkpad

Sep 1, 2011

I just recently purchased a Lenovo Thinkpad e520 and I'm wanting to put Ubuntu 11.04 on it. I downloaded the 64bit iso and burned it to a thumb-drive, just before booting the thumb-drive. I have not yet installed Ubuntu, but rather I'm still running it from a thumb-drive. I want to make sure everything will work fine, before installing it permanently.

However, it doesn't appear as if any drivers for my wireless card were loaded, as I can't view the available wireless networks. I successfully installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my desktop several months ago and I haven't booted into Windows since, -not one time. Therefore, I'm hoping to have my new laptop run Ubuntu as well.

Ubuntu Networking :: Thinkpad W500 Wireless Connection Keeps Dropping

Oct 27, 2010

I have a Thinkpad W500 with:

Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless WiFi Link 5300
I have Ubuntu 10.04 32bit installed:

Linux dani-laptop 2.6.32-25-generic #45-Ubuntu SMP Sat Oct 16 19:48:22 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

It has been working fine since I installed 10.04 but recently (end of last week I think) it stared dropping the wireless connection very often. So it will disconnect and reconnect, but I can't seem to find a pattern, sometimes it goes for hours without an issue and sometimes it does it several times in a row. Below is an extract of syslogs from when this happens. But not sure if what I need is there... the only weird thing I can see is:

Ubuntu Networking :: Sporadic Wifi In Natty With Thinkpad X201?

Jun 7, 2011

I've had recurring problems with Ubuntu wifi on my Thinkpad before. Usually powering down and toggling the physical wifi switch off, then toggling wifi on again after the system has booted would solve the problem. This time that isn't working. Wireless is completely absent from the network-manager applet. Wireless works for me 99% of the time for me, but every few months will "disappear" for some reason. Does anyone have any advice or know a thread they can point me to? I've posted the results for 'lspci -k', iwconfig and 'lshw -C network' bellow:
