Running Ubuntu 10.10 on Hp Mini 1030nr My wireless card is a Broadcom BCM4312. I have the b43 driver installed. When I disable networking I can change to monitor mode but then it changes back to manage mode when I enable networking again. I tried using airmonNG but it;s not working.
I am running Lucid Lynx, kernel 184.108.40.206 generic, I have a card with the Broadcom BCM4311, with the STA Linux Wireless driver. I have no idea how to get monitor mode to work with the Aircrack-ng suite's Airmon-ng command. I use the command: sudo airmon-ng start eth1
And I get this output: Found 5 processes that could cause trouble. If airodump-ng, aireplay-ng or airtun-ng stops working after a short period of time, you may want to kill (some of) them!
PID Name 883 NetworkManager 893 avahi-daemon 896 avahi-daemon 931 wpa_supplicant
Can you "split" a network interface in Ubuntu, similar to how airmon-ng lets you use your wireless card in managed and monitor mode, by making another interface out of the same hardware? I know it'd be slower, but I'd still like to do it.
setup the correct mode for my laptop-video card-monitor
Video card - ATI mobility Radeon X1600 External Monitor - Belinea b.display 2 22"
Right now the external monitor is working, but sometimes it goes black for 2-3 seconds and then works again. This happens sometimes 5 times in a row, sometimes once, sometimes none. Other issue, when I install any new kernel it doesn't work. I get weird picture on monitor.
I like to test my network often. Until recently, I've been doing so on my old Ubuntu 6.06 laptop... the problem is It's too slow (1.06 GHz single Core ), and old, (designed for Win 2000) to really be effective any more. So, recently I bought a new laptop...one with a Dual core Processor, and twice the speed. Anyway, I'm running Fedora Core 10 X86_64 on it. My problem is as follows:
Although I do have MadWifi installed, for some reason, I still can't put my Atheros based Netgear WPN511 into monitor mode. (in the Network configuration window, it says "Atheros Communications Inc. Atheros AR5001X+" I'm not sure what it means but I'll put it in in case it helps) does MadWifi not work with Fedora? if not, is there a Fedora 10 (X86_64) alternative?
i am using fedora 14 in my lenovo z560 laptop. It contains broadcom wifi card. The configuration is.Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4727] (rev 01) Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:0510] I want to inject monitor mode in my laptop to run kismet . But i can't. I installed broadcom-wl driver in my laptop but i think its not compatible to run monitor mode.. when i run kismet it show me error that :------ try some other open source kernel driver And the other is :- kismet find only binary value eth1 port. It isn't detecting wlan0 port
I can't get my wireless into monitor mode. I;m running ubuntu 9.1 karmic It connects fine to wireless networks. But when i do: sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor. I get: Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :SET failed on device wlan0 ; Device or resource busy. I can only see wlan0 (wmaster0, eth0), not ath0 or wifi0 mentioned elsewhere, in wireshark. I only see my own ip and packets coming to and from that. my system tells me i have an atheros ar9285 chipset in place.
When I first installed ubuntu 10.10, the display was for some reason tinted green and shifted a few inches to the right. After experimenting with the resolution preferences, I eventually got it to a large resolution (1280x720 ... or something like that) yet is was quite blurry. I found out that the problem was with my monitor after I switched it to TV mode, then back to PC mode. It became perfectly clear! All I had to do then was adjust the screen positioning by shifting it left a bit.
Even though I have made the resolution I figured out to be default, whenever I turn the PC on after shutting down, it goes back to the "green-and-to-the-side" mode. :/ Ain't really a big problem, until I tried to fiddle with the resolution preferences s'more.
Somehow, I have set it to be twice as wide of the maximum my monitor can display, went back to being green tinted for some reason, and is completely shifted left (yet the right side is still visible) This means that I cannot see what is going on the left side, and cannot adjust the resolution preferences, nor can I click blindly cuz the border is only around my visible side of the screen. Now it is stuck like this.
I've researched many hours and eventually found the terminal command for the resolution preferences. it popped up on the visible side. Although it was to no avail cuz I HAVE TRIED EVERY SETTING AND OPTION and absolutely nothing changed. I assume a system restore would simply revert it back to the previous satisfactory settings, but the thing is I want to FIX it. I am new to this terminal stuff, so I want to learn it and all that. To put it simply, here's what I want:
Learn how to manually adjust resolution without depending on a simple dialog box. Make the satisfactory resolution default and consistent through turning it on and off. Link that could teach me the essential commands, all this googling is stressful. D:
I'm a student who is working on a wireless research project. I have a madwifi driver for Atheros chipset on Debian Linux. With having the wireless interface get into monitor mode, I want to forward the captured packets from the wireless interface to the other Ethernet interface so that a different computer which is connected to this machine via Ethernet receives those packets. I checked that alll packets are received in the wireless interface using TCPDUMP. I tried to forward those packets with IPTABLES like 'iptables -p FORWARD -i ath0 -o eth2 -j ACCEPT' However, I couldn't see any packets forwarded to eth2 using TCPDUMP.
I am having problems with the refresh rate if the screen. In the refresh mode of the monitor in the monitor options have only one option 60Hz. I have LG 24 + ATI Radon 3870, and have already installed the ATI driver via Ubuntu download center.
I have 2 wlan cards. wlan0 and wlan1. wlan0 is in AP mode(Master mode) using hostap. wlan1 is connected to another wireless network and is in Managed mode. Now I want to make a bridge between wlan0 and wlan1. I do it like that:
I have been using KlamAV as a good GUI to Clam Antivirus for a while and I like how it is simple and I can do automatic scans every day. I upgraded to 11.04 and it is no longer in the software centre. Is there any way I can install Klam? I have tried the website but their instructions are way too complicated for my beginner knowledge.
First of all, this tutorial will use NDISWRAPPER, not b43, not wl (Broadcom STA). So, hooray for new method (actually, the only method ). Now, I don't want anyone to get scared because of bad experiences with Ndiswrapper or whatever, it's actually quite easy. I did not come up with any of this info. I'm just putting this guide together from Kacper Szczesniak's info (who came up with this method), WifiDocsDriverbcm43xxFeisty_No-Fluff from the Ubuntu Wiki, and my experience. The Broadcom STA (wl) driver has references to monitor mode in it's code, but does not have that functionality in reality. The Broadcom Windows driver on the other hand does have this capability. So, for monitor mode to work, you will need a patched version of ndiswrapper.
1) Install the Linux kernel headers:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
2) Install the tools required to compile Ndiswrapper:
This is a triple-monitor setup with two video cards, where the mouse pointer gets "stuck" if it tries to cross from one video card to the next one. It worked correctly in openSUSE 11.2 and doesn't work in openSUSE 11.3 with the same xorg.conf. This is a 64-bit openSUSE 11.3 with xorg 7.5-11.3 (the openSUSE prepackaged version). I've already tried NVidia drivers 256.53-16.1 (the openSUSE NVidia repository version) and 260.19.12 (the latest off of the NVidia website).
This is the same xorg.conf that I used successfully in openSUSE 11.2. I tried a new automatically generated xorg.conf using nvidia-settings and it had the same problem. This forum won't let me upload the relevant files, but here: [URL] is a tar-ball with my xorg.conf, Xorg.*.log, /var/log/messages, and the NVidia debugging output.
Tried to install 11.04 with auto update aplication from 10.10, normal desctop ubuntu, it started out and downloaded fine then i walked away for a while and screensaver came on. when i moved the mouse the screensaver just froze and stayed like that. i waited a while then hard booted. when i turned it on again it had just this command prompt thing that needed my password, i dont know linux commands so it didnt get me very far. its a dual boot so at startup i can choose from a bunch of old versions of ubuntu and an xp which is what i'm on now. i was thinking i could update one of these versions?
I have a Dell monitor attached to a Dell laptop. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 x64.
Spec: Latitude E6500 : Intel Core 2 Duo P8800(2.66GHz,1066MHz,3MB) Base Options : 256MB Nvidia Quadro NVS 160M Graphic Card 1 S Display : 15.4in Widescreen WUXGA (1920X1200) 2CCFL Dell 2001FP (attached using DVI)
When I try to boot into Ubuntu with the monitor attached I get a DVI: Cannot Display this Mode message on my monitor. I can boot into Ubuntu just fine if I detach the monitor. Have tried with VGA, but to no avail. I have the latest and greatest Nvidia drivers downloaded from the Nvidia web site. Googling indicates that this is a Dell problem, however, I am not sure about this. It worked just fine on my previous laptop (IBM T61) and Ubuntu 9.10, so I guess it has to do with the laptop and not Ubuntu 10.04.
I've installed an Ubuntu GNU/Linux 10.04 Server (Lucid Lynx) in a great computer, but with a small and old CRT monitor, that doesn't support much screen resolutions and frequencies. How can I do to make the system to use everytime traditional text mode (80x25 characters or compatibles)?
I recently hooked my television up to my computer as a second monitor so that I can watch videos on it. However, I don't always want to be in dual monitor mode. I've found that running "gksudo nvidia-settings" allows me to switch between the two modes without restarting X if I change some settings around and click "apply".
Is there a way I could setup two scripts to handle this process? The main problem I'm encountering is the fact that I change all the settings through the nvidia-settings graphical interface; therefore, I have no idea what's actually happening behind the scenes, so I don't know how to go about putting the two scripts together (what commands to issue, etc.).
I ordered this USB 802.11n dongle for about $10 and am having problems.I found a firmware related bug (Bug #595455) that keeps it from working out of the box and got around that. I put the right firmware file in the right place and CAN CONNECT TO B or G Access Points.hen I put my AP in N-Only mode, I can see the network, but cannot associate. With the AP in mixed mode I can Associate using G.The most interesting thing I found was something that had very few google hits (like 4). In the dmesg output after associating I see the message:
Successfully associated, ht not enabled(0, 1)The most interesting thing about this is the (0, 1) at the end.I don't know what that means but it seems like a clue as to what the problem is.This device uses the realtek chipset 8191S, there are conflicting reports on this, but all the reported possibilities seem to use the same driver from realtek (rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.2010 0625).Here is some random info:
Dmesg output: [85082.620027] usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6 [85082.754586] usb 1-3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice [85082.755456] ==>ep_num:4, in_ep_num:1, out_ep_num:3[code]........
All of a sudden today there was no display on my Ubuntu PC. It seems to be powering on - I get the LG screen when the monitor is switched on - but it goes into "Power Saving Mode". How do I diagnose this? I already unplugged and plugged. Monitor is connected to a graphics card - no change when I switched to VGA.
I run a number of Ubuntu 9.10 boxes attached to multiple daisy-chained KVMs. None of the PCs are using any GUIs - they all run in console mode. I often reboot them remotely via an SSH session, etc. If a monitor isn't actually active on the PC when it reboots, Grub2 uses a low-res video mode, despite having a higher-res video mode set correctly in Grub2's configuration. If I reboot WHILE THE MONITOR is attached to the Ubuntu PC via the KVM, the video mode is set correctly as configured in Grub2's config files. If I reboot WITH NO MONITOR attached, the video mode is ignored and I'm stuck in a low-res mode next time I attach to the PC via the KVM. How can I force Grub2 to honor the configured graphics setting, despite not having a monitor present at the time it boots?
Ever since I have been using Mepis 8 my monitor keeps defaulting to standby mode unless I keep using the mouse. I have tried all the usual things within KDE but with no success. Quite often I watch a dvd film on my PC and it is most annoying when the monitor switches off during a film. Is there an option within xorg.conf to stop this from occurring? My monitor is an LCD Benq FP91G+.
I just installed ubuntu 9.10 server edition (twice, just to be sure) and the installation ran fine, but when I try to boot into the system, i get past the BIOS loading screen then my monitor just goes into power saving mode and I can't get it to see a signal from the PC. I know the OS is running, because I can ssh into it from my laptop, and I know the monitor works, because that machine had a windows OS on it before and that worked fine with the same monitor. I had thought it might be a graphics card thing with ubuntu trying to push out at a resolution not supported by the monitor, but I find that unlikely as it's brand new this month. If anyone has any idea of something I can try to diagnose the problem, that would be great. As I said, I still have ssh access to the PC, so I can basically try anything on it that I could if I was physically at the box itself.
when my monitor turns off after 30 minutes, I cannot do anything after. We're talking complete lock down of Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit. Not even alt+printscreen+REISUB reboots the machine; I have to do a hard reboot (which sucks and is hard on hardware).
