Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Android 2.2 Wifi Hotspot Makes 11.04 To Crash
Apr 29, 2011
I often connects my laptop (Asus EEE) to my HTC desire hd with the wifi hotspot. But this doesn't work since yesterday when I upgraded to 11.04. When I connect the laptop to the phone the screen on the laptop goes black with a lot of scrolling text then it freezes.
This worked out of the box without any problems with 10.10.
I have the weirdest problem on the newly (freshly) installed Natty on my Acer Aspire 5741G: Wifi connectivity is good out-of-the-box and can connect (at least with my office's network) but cannot connect with my phone's (HTC Legend with Froyo) configured as a portable hotspot.
The network can be detected, but fails to connect. I have tried with WPA, without any security.... it all does not work.Previously Lucid 10.4 connected flawlessly out-of-the-box on the same machine.Other devices detect and connect to the phone without problems.
used these drivers(dident work at all without it, no lights even): [URL]
and i first tryed it out on my netbook (aao, intel atom ubuntu 10.04 32bit), i ran make, then make install, done! i pugged it in and im happly using a 300mbps wifi network.
then i try it on my desktop (custom, AMD phenom x4, ubuntu 10.04 64bit), i install, no errors, then when i plug in the wifi usb, it lights up, then stops, the mouse also stops working(bouth keyboard and mouse is usb) but the kb still works. aftor restarting keeping it pluged in, ubuntu never finishes the splash screen, just stops their, i try again without the wifi and it works, i keeped trying and now the whole comp frezes, even the kb, and i see the system monetor is also frozen, what do i do?
one last thing, it works on bouth my netbook and desktop under windows 7, only on my desktop it wont work on ubuntu.
I'm having the issue that I cannot conenct to the wlan of my Motorola Milestone/Droid with Android 2.2 and the 3G Hotspot service started. When I want to connect, I have to type the WPA2 passhrase in, I do that correctly and then the system tries to conenct. This failed and then I have to type the passphrase again.It's a Samsung N130 Netbook with Ubuntu 11.04 installed.
I occasionally stay at hotels where I get free wired internet but not wifi, I'd like to use my laptop as an access point so that I can have internet on my Ipod Touch. I know it's possible because after trying unsuccessfully in Ubuntu 9.04 a few times I decided to try it with windows vista and it took me a matter of seconds and both the laptop and ipod touch were surfing the internet. I'd prefer not to boot into windows just for this.
In ubuntu when I create a new wireless network, network manager shows that I'm connected to both the autoeth0 and the wireless network I created but neither computer has internet access.
I've got an Ubuntu box set up as a router and wifi hotspot. I can access the internet and any website using this box. I can connect a laptop to my wifi access point, and connect to both the router box and the internet. I'm writing this message from it. If I access either hsbc Hong Kong internet banking or speedtest.net from my laptop I can't connect. Every other site I've tried is fine. What could be causing this? I don't know where to start. I've set up the firewall rules and routing tables, so I vaguely know what I'm doing... but clearly not enough to debug this issue.
I have two computers: - one is my desktop, running ubuntu. it has two NIC's one is wired (eth0), the other is wireless (wlan0). - the other is my laptop, running archlinux. two NIC's as well (eth & wlan).
I would like to connect my desktop to my router via eth0 and connect my laptop to my desktop via wlan0, providing internet access to my laptop. i would like both computers to be able to use the internet simultaneously (not all packets would be forwarded).
Any manner of doing this would be ok, but if this is a simple enough task to do it by simply configuring some files (e.g. /etc files) rather than installing some unnecessarily big application, then that would be wonderful!
Also, not really as high a priority but if possible, i would like this to perhaps not be limited to my laptop. connecting any device (a psp or pda for example) to the internet this way (making it a hotspot in a sense) would be super! encrypting the connection (WEP for instance) would be ultra-mega!
Miscellaneous info:my desktop uses dhcp to connect to the router.
I coach a high school debate team. I would like to take my team paperless... Within the world of debate, any evidence you read is required to be made available for your opponent. Many teams use a third laptop as a viewing laptops. They will make a computer to computer network and make a dropbox on the desktop of the 'viewing' computer.
To save money I would like to be able to use some of these cheap bargain basement netbooks/tablets that are coming out as solely a viewing computer. Most of these cheap machines are running android.So....is it possible to network with an android to share files over wifi?Internet is not an option as it is either banned for use in the round or not available...usually both....
I've been reading around, but not had much success at all in trying to share the internet connection from my laptop to my phone.all the articles i read refer to earlier versions of Ubuntu and the packages they mention have become obsolete, according to the apt-get tool.im not that new to Linux, but my networking probably isn't up to scratch.if anyone could help me, that would be great, im using Ubuntu 10.04 at the time of writing.
When I'm running Ubuntu everything seems to work perfectly until I try to connect to a wireless network. My wireless card supposedly works out of the box because I can scan for wireless networks without a problem. The only time it becomes a problem is when I try to connect to a wireless network. Doing so causes my computer to freeze, requiring a hard-restart. I disabled the driver that comes with Ubuntu, and installed ndiswrapper with my card's corresponding windows driver. As soon as I modprobe'd ndiswrapper, my computer froze as it did before and required a hard restart. This was about a month ago, and since then I have tried OpenSUSE and Fedora, but these distros also did the same thing. I eventually gave up and installed Windows 7 and everything works perfectly. However, I'm now growing tired of using Windows. (I do a lot of linux server administration, and it's much nicer to do from a linux machine.) I would very much like to try to get Ubuntu working on this laptop again. Does anyone know what the solution may be?
EDIT: If you are experiencing the same problem, DISABLE your PCI LAN card in your BIOS. Wireless should work fine. Seems that the LAN and WLAN card have a similar ID or something and linux confuses the two, so disabling LAN card solves the issue of not being able to use the wireless.
I am trying to connect to a paid for hotspot service. There is no encryption for the wifi.
In Windows you connect to the hotspot, and then any webpage that you attempt to connect to results in you being redirected to their login page.
Once you have put a username and password into their page, the internet works. I know the hostname and IP address of the login page so actually I can go straight there if necessary.
With Debian I have tried Network Manager, WICD and command line iwconfig and dhclient.
With Network Manager or WICD the connection just will not start. It seems to connect to the hotspot then immediately fall off before you can go to the login page.
With iwconfig and dhclient I get mode Managed not-associated. Sometime dhclient seems to return an IP address sometimes not. I'm not sure if it's because it already has an address in it's lease lifetime.
I think that dhclients sends a ping once the connection is up to verify the link? But this will not work until the page is logged into.
Windows "just works" even warning you that you need a login page and then loading it. How I can use this wifi service with Linux?
Since when I upgraded OpenSuse from 10.2 to 11.3 (big jump, I know!), I can no longer use OpenOffice. When Java is Active, the OO applications crash after a few operations. Most of times they don't even start.
When run in a terminal, OO answers with errors like this:
Code: Exception in thread "Thread-1" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: requested 24 bytes for CHeapObj-new. Out of swap space? #
I've happened across a wireless router that has a gateway address of 192.168.0.1 and allots IPs from 192.168.0.64-255. My laptop wouldn't connect to it automatically, so I was playing around and found that it needed 0.x instead of 1.x. I thought the network manager on ubuntu would have figured that out?! Now its a separate story that the router happens to have no admin password
I just installed ubuntu 9.10 in my freinds laptop and it has a realtek 81878 wireless card...it detects the wireless networks but when i connect it just keeps on asking for the authentication key again and again.
I updated successfully to 10.04 via wireless, then I downloadsynthesizer via wireless. The next day, today that is, can't get wireless to work. It keeps prompting mor the passphrase, I enter everything correctly, all the other computers in the house have no problem.
I am working with ubuntu (gnome) 10.10 maverick 64 bit on a HP pavilion 2713ca. I have installed the Broadcom sta driver for a BCM4328 wifi driver. After setting wpa security with my password, the wifi network worked for many weeks. However, in the last few days it does not connect no more. I have tried to reinstall SSID. And I have checked to see if eth1 was still there:

I'm using a HP mini netbook, and I recently installed Ubuntu on it. I updated and did the whole proprietary drivers activation and it now scans and sees networks but I am having trouble actually using them now. It says that it is connected to a wireless network but it never loads any pages.
im using minimal ubuntu 10.04 and im having trouble connecting to wifi using the terminal. the wifi worked perfectly on the desktop version. i followed this guide [URL] and looks like then i used '/etc/init.d/networking restart' and get this now it seems ive disabled wlan0 as $ sudo lshw -C shows
i tried to enable it again by using 'sudo ifup wlan0' but i get a few errors i think the 2nd errors may be because i tried to download another driver for the wireless using 'wget [URL] and then 'dpkg -i rt3090-dkms_126.96.36.199-0ubuntu0~ppa1_all.deb'
Since I upgraded to Natty, XBMC produces a crash log when I exit.I have searched for forum entries but not found any. I use a Gigabyte GA-880GMA-UD2H DDR3 AM3 board with a Athlon II X2 processor, with on-board graphics, HDMI output.
(XBMC seems to work while running, however)

I believe I have forwarded my port 22 correctly on my Belkin N+ router. I believe I have also set this computer to a static IP through the router. Is there a way to check or set up static IP and port fowarding on Fedora itself or is that all done on the router? I ask because when I use ConnectBot's ssh app on my android and connect from within the LAN to the computer 192.168.2.9:22 it says Connection lost, no route to host.
I am a newbie trying to setup wifi using 9.10 on a compaq nx9010 . The driver is activated for the broadcom 4320 rev 2 chipset. the wifi light is on.I can connect to my neighbors's unsecured network, but not mine which is using personal WPA2 security.
I am using a lynksys Wireless-N Broadband Router WRT160Nv2 I have installed WICD and removed the gnome network manager WICD tries to validate authentication which fails. then it tries to obtain an ip address which fails. finally it says: CONNECTION FAILED: UNABLE TO GET IP ADDRESS". meanwhile it is showing the wireless network at 100% signal.
last nite tried changing wifi channel, changing to WEP, installed and tried WPASUPPLICANT and WPA_GUI. Unfortunately , nothing worked. The wifi controller was able to assosciate with the network but could not authenticate. I'm wondering if the passphrase that I type in on the computer is somehow being turned into a hexidecimal or something so that it does not match what the router has as the pass phrase.
Running 9.10 Ubuntu on my laptop. It connects fine to regular access poitns, but for some reason it won't connect to my android wifi adhoc sharing. I have it as dual boot with Windows and windows connects to it perfectly. From Ubuntu 9.10 it tries to connect... then just disconnects. Would be killer to be able to use it with my adhoc wifi sharing! I prefer my Ubuntu boot, rather than my windows one
I am connecting from my WinXP laptop to my Ubuntu Server desktop using PUTTY. The laptop is using Wifi and the desktop is on a wire. I have a D-Link DI-524 wireless router. My session works fine for a while, and then freezes, sometimes after only a few seconds, and sometimes after many minutes. The same thing happens when I use VMWare Server Console to connect from the laptop to the desktop's virtual machines. Other connections between these machines under this setup (RDP, samba, SVN) do not experience problems. I usually do not experience problems establishing the SSH and VMWare connections.I have ended up using Windows Remote Desktop to connect to a Windows XP virtual machine on the desktop, and opening a PUTTY session on that machine. That's a nice workaround, but it makes it so that I have to have that VM running in order to have a reliable SSH session to the box
I've noticed that switching to Ubuntu about 6 months ago has made it noticeably more difficult to use the free wifi at my school. When I had Windows 7 on the same laptop, it was much easier to establish and maintain a connection. I know it's not the hardware. My question is: is there some security setting that makes it difficult to use public wifi on Ubuntu? Also, I don't have this problem at home on my WPA2 home wifi network.
I'm a novice using Ubuntu 10.1 on an Asus EeePC. For several days, my computer has refused to connect to the office wifi, though it's had no trouble doing this in the past. It recognizes the signal, and the wifi icon keeps indicating that it's in the process of connecting, but the process never completes. Every few minutes I'll be asked to re-enter the password. Eventually it gives up.
I'm not sure if this problem extends to other wifi networks or just the one at my office.
I have a lot of recordings on my mythtv box.i can see/play them fine within the mythfrontend interface, and mythweb loads almost all pages ok (including schedules, guides, etc.), but when I click on 'recorded programs' at the top, Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 88 bytes) in /usr/ share/ mythtv/mythweb/includes/translate.php on line 142.I've had this error before, and it went away when I purged my list of recordings.
