Ubuntu Networking :: Configure Scanner Connected On A Router?
Mar 24, 2011
I have a router Asus RT-n16 where i've connected my EPSON DX5000. I've configured the printer function, adding the printer as AppSocket, adding router IP and port 9100 (socket://Router_IP:9100), but now i can't get the scanner function.
I've installed packages from here[URL].do (iscan) and adding on /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf the line
net 192.168.1.1 #my router ip
but it's not working. When i run scanimage -L i get this message:
No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different, check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages). The scanner option worked fine when my printer is directly connected at my computer.
just installed Ubuntu Netbook remix on my acer aspire one, and come across a problem Ive never faced before. Im able to Connect to my router (and access it through the internal ip address) but as soon as i try access anything outside of my network there is nothing!
This i found odd as first i thought it might have just been my Routers problem, but seeing as all my other computers were connected to it with no problems (wired and wireless) I quickly traced the problem back to the laptop.
After this i decided to see if after a simple update would fix the problem. so i connected it up through the Ethernet port once again it connects to the router but no internet! I have tried everything in my knowledge, but with no success!
I am connected to my wireless network but can't connect to the internet. I have searched the ubuntu forums for solutions but none seem to work for me. I can post terminal outputs if required (I know that much).
I'm running a Natty machine wired to a TP-Link router (TL-WR841N) with additional Ubuntu and Windows machine on WiFi. Recently I've had some problems with connectivity on the Natty machine. Connectivity is fine as far as the router, but not beyond it. This applies to all browsers, Software Center, Aptitude and anything else you can think of. Now, normally at this point I would call my ISP, but the thing is, all other machines have connectivity. I've checked the cables twice and anyway, if it were them, I wouldn't be able to ping the router. Router has ping functionality to outside and it's working, have tried ubuntu.com and google.com. Also, connectivity between the wired and wireless machines is fine, pings are flying across the network beautifully.
I'm running into a curious networking hiccup with my router setup. I have a D-Link DIR-628 wireless router connected to our modem, and a wire running from that to a Linksys WRT-54G (v1.1) in our basement. This setup worked great for a few days, but then suddenly the Linksys stopped routing us to the internet. I can connect to the router page on the Linksys and using the diagnostic tools I can ping the web from there, but none of the computers connected to it can. Everything is fine when connected to the D-Link.
After fiddling around with just about every setting on the Linksys I finally gave up and tried resetting it to factory defaults--and it worked! Everyone could access the internet again. But then, every day or two it locks up again and I have to reset factory defaults again.
To use my home broadband, I am connected to a wireless router. How can I scan for other devices connected to that router? I am using Ubuntu 10.10.Is there both a GUI and CLI method?The IP of my router is URL... Please rename this thread title from 'How can I scan for other devices connected to that router?' to 'How can I scan for other devices connected to my router?
This morning my Ubuntu 10.10 Meerkat desktop suddenly lost internet connection, but stayed connected to my netgear router. After the usual "tried turning it off and on again" methods didn't work, I booted into my Win Vista partition to find that connected no problem. I have another Ubuntu netbook and a Windows 7 laptop in the house as well as an Android. These all connect fine. It appears to be just the desktop Ubuntu.
I can ping my router 192.168.0.1 and log into it's UI via browser. I can also ssh to the box. My router does not do any filtering or blocking. I've tried disabling the firewall and changing the nameservers in /etc/network/interfaces and dhclient.conf as well as the network manager. The network card is a Belkin 54g but I can't remember the exact model no. it was bought years ago.
I think something weird is going on. On a fresh installation of 11.04, I seem to be connected to my router just fine, but I can't reach the internet or anywhere else on my network. Anybody see my problem from what I've posted? The computer is only connected via wireless (so I don't know why eth0 would be connected as well). I can't think of what I'm missing...My system seems to be connected to my router on two interfaces. "ip addr" gives:
Code: 1: lo <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 16436 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
I have an external hard drive connected to my router. From Windows I can access it, but from Ubuntu I can see the hard drive, but when I try to access, I'm asked for a password. However my network does not have a password neither the hard drive. What must I do?
Currently, I would like to setup an automatic backup system, where the data on my computer is copied to an external harddisk which is connected to the router (Siemens SE551). This device theoretically allows setting up a file server, but unfortunately I can't access the share from Linux. I have not yet tried to access this share from Windows.
The rough plan is to use rsync and ssh, issued by a cronjob on both, my Ubuntu- and on my WinXP-notebook. But before considering this, I have to get my system connected with this drive.
BTW: I am using Ubuntu 10.4.
According to the SE551 manual [URL], NAS is not provided.
I followed this manual and set security OFF. According to the router's web interface, the device was recognized correctly.
I installed samba:
Code: gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf # # Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux. # # # This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
So I installed 10.4 on a new Toshiba Satellite L645DWhen I connect to my wireless at home, the Network Manager shows that I am connected but I can't reach any websites via ping or firefox. I also can't ping my router. I also don't have wired access working at all.iwconfig shows connected to correct ESSIDI can ping localhostcan't ping google:
Code: ping: unknown host www.google.com can't ping my router (192.168.2.1):
I had previously been having loads of problems getting my wireless printer to work with Linux [http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1453697]. Everything is working fine now. However, something that confused me is that whenever I tried to ping the printer _before_ I got it working, it would fail with a _different_ IP address. That is, the command 'ping x.y.z.3' would fail with a message saying it was unable to contact 'x.y.z.2'
Now I am looking at my router - for something unrelated - and I've noticed that rogue IP address shows up in the list of connected devices. It has a MAC address but for the device name it lists "<unknown>". Should I be concerned about this? how to figure out what this device is?
I just got a new wireless router (Asus WL-520GC). I can connect to the Internet, but I can't access 192.168.1.1 to configure the router (this is the correct address, according to the manual). It doesn't respond to a ping either.
I'm trying to configure my Linksys WRT54G2 wireless router for my DSL connection. I select PPPOE as the connection type and when I go to connect I get the message cannot get ip address from ppoe server.
I want to set up a home / file / torrent / web / print server at home. I am using a dell optiplex gx240 and my printer is a Epson dx8400. I was wondering if it is possible to use the printer and scanner connected to the server. Has anyone done this before? I hope to print from any computer in my house. Scanning would probably be the hardest part I guess.
I have a Belkin Wireless G F5D7230-4. I was attempting to configure a wireless card on another computer on my network when it froze during the reboot phase after making settings adjustments. The wired connection is fine, except on that computer that I was making the adjustments from. It won't connect at all. I plugged a friends netbook into the same wired line and it connected. Also there is no wireless signal on any laptops. Mac, Win Linux, don't matter. I tried all the various methods of resetting to default but still when I try to access the router's config page @ http://192.168.2.1 I get the error Code: The server at 192.168.2.1 is taking too long to respond.
I have a Linksys WAG54G2 Router - this is set up and was working fine with Xp and my Apple I phone.I have just changed over from XP to Ubuntu, and am having difficulty in configuring wireless settings to accept UBUNTU.The hard wired Ethernet connection works fine.
I have a router which have 4 ethernet ports(eth0,eth1,eth2,eth3,eth4 ) & One ADSL Line & One USB, I need to configure My router eth3 as a WAN & eth0 as a LAN using iperf, I am going to findout test a my Application(using iptables) whether my application is correct or wrong As of now I configured like server pc1(192.168.1.230)--->eth0(gw)(192.168.1.1)Router--eth3(gw)(192.168.2.1) -->pc2(192.168.2.157). For eth3 as a WAN and eth0 as a LAN. But I am not able to ping between two pc's.
My printer failed recently and I was given a refurbished Epson stylus NX305 Printer scanner. Cannot get my system to recognize it. Running UberStudent (Debian based) Linux on a Dell Dimension. Have tried everything I could find on the web but nothing works. Scanner not recognized by software.
Linux and I have trying to get my Fedora 15 (x86 64bit) on my laptop to print to an Epson Stylus NX515 printer/scanner. I have the printer connected to a router through a wireless connection. I have other computers that are on the network that are Windows based and they of course are printing/Scanning just fine. The printer is located in a different room. I have been searching for a solution but non that explains how to install a printer driver for one that is connected to a router wirelessly.
I recently got a static IP from my ISP. I Have two machines connected to my DLink wireless router. A windows laptop and linux machine runninf centos 5.3. I would like to host an application apache/tomcat based on my linux machine and would like people to access it from the outside. What configurations do I need to make on the Dlink wireless router and my linux box to make it work.
I dual boot XP and FC14 and have 2 routers. I can connect and ping one of these routers when I'm in FC and I have an IP address I just can't load any websites. When I connect to the other router (my main router) it works fine. When I boot into XP and connect to the problem router I can load pages fine. It's only when I'm on FC14 and connect to the problem router that I can't load pages even though I have an IP and can ping around.
I am unable to get my intel pro/wireless 3945abg connected to my router. The firmware has been installed and at first was even able to connect, but now the access point doesn't even show up in network manager. I am currently able to connect using a USB wireless adapter, but for certain reasons, would prefer to use the former. I've looked over this page with no results.
