Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To Internet Using Command Line

Jun 6, 2011

I want to connect to the internet using the command line. I'm 95% I have my wireless card installed correctly, since I'm using it right now.dhclient takes a minute or two, then finishes. It gives no output, success or failure. Then I open up Firefox and I'm not connected to the internet. What can I do to figure out what the problem is?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect Command Line To A Wifi?

Aug 13, 2010

I'm trying to connect to a AP by command line but I can't yet. Using the network manager it's possible but I need the command lines to use in my code programming.

Here it's what I tryed:
Code:
sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode managed channel 6 key restricted s:'12345' essid 'cassiano-PC_AP'
and the tail: sudo tail -f /var/log/syslog
Code:
Aug 13 14:05:55 cassiano-linux kernel: [13476.935795] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:15:af:84:29:d3 (try 1)

Fedora Networking :: Connect To The Wireless Network Via Command Line?

Jul 10, 2009

I am fairly familiar with Linux but had never ventured into Wlan settings / options / too much. I have compatible card (aetheros) and when running - iwlist wlan0 scanning - I get plenty networks showing up - meaning the card works. When I installed distro which is last night (before I ran update), I had that little bars menu at the top of the screen that showed available networks once clicked upon. Since I like to modify and make my settings better - I removed that little AT&T like bar, and now rebooted after update to find that I can not see available networks unless I use iwliset wlan0 scanning.... .#$*&)@&#(&%# - need I say more.

Two questions - how do you connect to the wireless network via command line? What is that vertical bars GUI tool called so I can find it and run it again? Is there (for the love of god) alternative to system-config-network GUI managment tool for wlan?

Ubuntu Networking :: Enable And Connect Mobile Broadband From Command Line Script?

Jul 27, 2010

I have a Sony TZ270N running Ubuntu 10.04 splendidly. The Sprint Mobile Broadband works great, but it's a bit cumbersome to activate. Specifically, to get it to work I need to:

echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/sony-laptop/wwanpower
sleep 5
echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/sony-laptop/wwanpower

Then I wait another five seconds, right-click on the networking icon, choose "Enable mobile broadband", then left-click on the networking icon, and choose "Connect to Sprint Connection". I do this multiple times a day, and it's just a bit of a pain, especially when in a hurry. Accordingly, I'd like to script it so I can do the whole thing with a single command.

I've already put the above echo statements into a script and it works great; is there any way to script the actual start of the PPP session itself -- with the caveat that I'd like the networking icon to accurately reflect the latest state?

(In other words, I don't want to bypass the networking icon and just launch the PPP session in the background -- I want it to show that I'm connected, and still let me manage the connection via the icon after connected.)

Ubuntu :: Configuring Internet From Command Line

Feb 23, 2010

I just installed a command line version of karmic to an old desktop. During installation, DHCP failed, so I attempted to configure manually (without really knowing what I'm doing) and wound up without a connection. I've been searching for solutions, but really don't understand what I need to do. A million thanks to anyone who can help me get up and running (or at least give me a push in the right direction).I can either connect the computer directly to the cable modem via USB, or directly to my wireless router via ethernet cable. I know what the ip address for my laptop (which is connected wirelessly to the router) but don't know if that would be the same for the desktop or not, and don't really know anything else.

Ubuntu :: Connect To Network Via Command Line?

May 14, 2009

For some reason Ubuntu 8.04 doesn't save my college network settings, so I have to connect manually each time. This is what I physically have to do to connect:

1) Click on network manager icon in the notification area
2) Click "connect to other wireless network"
3) Type in "NETWORK_NAME" into network name area field
4) Select WPA enterprise under wireless security
5) Type in "USERNAME" into username field
6) Type in "PASSWORD" into password field

So what I would like to know: is there any command line equivalent for the above six steps? I would like to write a script which will carry out the above six steps for me automatically, using the parameters NETWORK_NAME, USERNAME and PASSWORD.

Fedora :: Connect To Network From Command Line?

Mar 23, 2011

I hosed my installation of F14 by installing from some "experimental" repositories. Now I only get XDM at startup and an xterm on login. This would be fine if I could use yum to do some updates, but I have no network connection. I have been over the man page for nmcli dozens of times and none of the options there seems to start anything. I have also tried starting dhclient or using:

ifconfig eth0 up Nothing. So, is there a reliable way I can just connect to the network? This shouldn't be so hard.

General :: Using Command Line To Connect To A Wireless Network With An Http Login?

Apr 18, 2010

I'm trying to connect to a wifi network where it hijacks all requests and redirects you to a page where you have to agree to a terms of use before it lets you connect to the actual outside world. This is a pretty common practice, and usually doesn't pose much of a problem. However, I've got a computer running Ubuntu 9.10 server with no windowing system. How can I use the command line to agree to the terms of use? I don't have internet access on the computer to download packages via apt-get or anything like that. Sure, I can think of any number of workarounds, but I suspect there's an easy way to use wget or curl or something.

Basically, I need a command line solution for sending an HTTP POST request essentially clicking on a button. For future reference, it'd be helpful to know how to send a POST request with, say, a username and password if I ever find myself in that situation in another hotel or airport.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To The Internet As Per Normal And Use Any Internet Application?

Feb 1, 2010

On this box I have Two seperate Ubuntu installations. Recently in both I seem to be having the same problem. I initially can connect to the internet as per normal and use any internet application. But after a period of time, sometimes just minutes, sometimes hours, even though the icon says connected, I cant update pages or send emails etc because there is no actual connection. My Physical connection is good I know - My Ubuntu laptop and Windows gamming PC connect fine during this period. So

Does this suggest an intermittent hardware fault or is there some thing in Ubuntu I can check to make sure that it is setup correctly and nothing has been corrupted? I am a lay PC person - I dont really want to be command prompting - Plug & Play and Point & Click is my limit.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Connect To The Internet But Can Connect To The Router

Apr 6, 2011

I am trying to setup a dhcp server for my internal network. I have two NICs, a modem, and a wireless router. I have my server connected directly to my modem which is providing me with Internet access on eth1 and is working fine. I have dhcp and dns setup on eth0 which is connected to my router. The router shows that it is connected to the Internet but when the router gives a client computer an IP address, the client is unable to connect to the Internet but can connect to the router. I will post my configuration files below with my current configuration.

Here are some outputs:

I have tried to edit the connection using System>Preferences>Network Connections. I entered manual settings for IPV4, but whatever i enter there, it doesnt get reflected when i type ifconfig in the terminal window. I tried setting it to Automatic DHCP as well. Doesnt work.

Networking :: Kubuntu - Can't Connect To The Internet But Can Connect To The LAN

Nov 12, 2009

I've recently set up a local development webserver using Karmic Koala. I downloaded and installed the server version of Kubuntu and have the web server working.

The problem is that for some reason, I'm no longer able to connect to the internet. I can connect to my router, and other machines in my network can VNC into the server.

I'm using an wired connection to the router and have the server set up on an internal IP of 192.168.0.100. I used to be able to connect to the internet, I downloaded and installed a load of packages etc before it stopped working.

The last thing I remember doing before it stopped working was that I installed Samba so I could share files with the other machines on the network (two Macs running Leopard and a WinXP laptop).

I got the share working - I copied a load of files to the server via the share, rebooted, and for some reason now I can't connect to the net (and other machines can't see the Samba share either.) However I can still VNC into the server.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To A Wireless Line

Sep 24, 2010

I have installed LUbuntu from a desktop cd-rom in my Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600. There is a Pentium III inside.

I have searched in the forum and found that it is a common problem, but the solutions explained either did not work in my computer or I did not understand them. Maybe together we can fix the problem.

I do not know how to connect to mi wi-fi conection. In the menu of the Network conections, I choose the label "wireless", then click to "add", give a name to the conection, write the ESSID, and the password (WPA) and click "Ok" to save. So my conection appears on the list o Wireless connections.

But now, what should I do? Nothing (as a wi-fi icon) appears on the bar (there is just the cabled connection icon, because I am conected with the ethernet cable). If I click on the cabled connection icon there is no wireless option available.

Ubuntu Networking :: Ad-Hoc Works With GUI But Not Command Line

Jul 17, 2010

I have two Roboards that need to communicate with one another. I have sucessfully installed Ubuntu 9.04 using the 386 kernel based on instructions found online.I can use the GUI to set up an Ad-Hoc network using one Roboard ("Create New Wireless Network"), call it Manet, and connect to "Manet" using the GUI on the other Roboard and ping/ssh between the boards. However, when I try to create the same wireless network using the command line using:

ifconfig wlan2 down
iwconfig wlan2 key off essid 'Manet' channel 5 ap any
ifconfig wlan2 up

I don't see any entry in iwconfig under "Cell". It keeps giving me "Not Associated"When I try to enter the same information on the other Roboard to try to connect to the network, it doesn't connect and under iwconfig, I don't even see any entry for ESSID. Could somebody please tell me why it works when I use the GUI and not the command line.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting Wirelessly Via Command Line?

May 11, 2010

For reasons that are not terribly interesting I decided it would be a great idea to remove and re-install the xserver-xorg package. Which proved to be a much larger mistake than I imagined it would be. I purged the package, and then restarted.Naturally I need to have an internet connection to use apt-get to reinstall xserver-xorg, which is where my idea falls apart.I followed the directions in the How To: Manual Network Configuration. However, after I enter the command "sudo dhclient wlan1" I get the line "wmaster0: unknown hardware address type 801" twice prior to the output that the above link shows. Then I just get DHCPDISCOVER messages until I get a "No DHCPOFFERS received. No working leases in persistent database - sleeping."

I'm connecting with WEP to a router that I know works (because I'm using it to type this on my laptop right now) and I know that the wireless adapter(RTL8187) is installed properly because it automatically connected to my network when I had xserver-xorg still installed.I'm running ubuntu 9.04.I've searched for a few hours and I'm no closer to resolving the issue.

For those of you not familiar, it is a very simple window manager, where I can launch a terminal with a mouse click, and I can start the few apps that I need from the command line.

My question is...what package should I install, and what corresponding command line would be used to launch a tool to manage the wireless LAN connection?

Ubuntu Networking :: Anything Wrong With NIC / Is This Something That Can Be Resolved Via Command Line?

Sep 1, 2010

I'm running a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.4.1 on a Dell Dimension 4700 desktop.When connected to the network (jack in wall, no router), I normally navigate my intranet and the internet.But here's the issue: this particular Dell machine has an IP addresses that is radically different from all other machines connected to the same network.I have tried to edit etc/network/interfaces to force a different IP, but then I lose connectivity. I need this to follow the IP scheme of my intranet so I can set up a server that resolves by hostname. Is there anything wrong with the NIC or is this something that can be resolved via command line?
