Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To A Campus Wi-Fi Network?

Mar 17, 2011

The more I use Windows, the more disgusted I get with it lol. So I would really enjoy using Ubuntu on campus instead of Windows, but I can't seem to get it to work. They have PDF files explaining how to connect with Windows XP - Windows 7 and Mac OS X, but nothing for a Linux distro. Here is the link to the PDFs [URL], and here are the settings I've tried to use to connect [URL] . I know that the CA is right (unless I need to us the Ubuntu version).

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To The Campus Network?

Mar 2, 2010

I recently went back to Linux on my netbook because Windows 7 was too laggy (1gb of RAM, go figure). I've never been able to connect to the protected wireless network on my campus without using Windows, though, so I was hoping someone could help me finally get that figured out.

The school has a how-to for connecting to the network using various operating systems, including Linux, here (scroll down to the bottom to choose OS). After following the guide through the CA certificate it mentions, the network manager tries to connect for a while then just sort of times out and asks me to enter the information again. Using Wicd, I noticed that this timeout appears to happen when trying to obtain an IP (after authentication).

My system: Acer Aspire One AOA150 with an Intel 4965AGN wireless card (installed by me a few months back, have had no problems with the card itself not working). I've installed Kubuntu 9.10 Netbook edition and done all available updates. My campus offers an unprotected "Visitor" network that I can connect to without issue, but they limit what you can access using the unprotected network so I need to be able to connect to the WPA2 one.

I've tried getting help from on-campus IT but keep getting told that none of them know how to use Linux, which makes me wonder who exactly wrote the how-to on their website... The guides on the website are for older versions of Ubuntu, but I figured they would remain applicable on a later-version Kubuntu install.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Internet In Campus?

Jan 22, 2010

I have a problem which is connecting automatically to my spwireless. On my windows, my schools provide me the disc which contains several .cer files and a automated batch files to copy the .cer files to the root folders. I can choose to use the other network but in using that, i have to manually connect compared to using the spwireless. Anyway, my problem is that, how do i add the .cer files and to where so when i connect to the network it will look there for the cert. Because when i manually connect, only one cer can be chosen.

Networking :: "campus" Wifi On-the-fly "campus" Wireless Network?

May 3, 2010

discover HOWTO for an on-the-fly "campus" wireless network? I will be part of a large youth sports event spread over several acres of grassy fields. I need a wireless network for the event operations and administration. I want to operate a private wireless lan, "under the stars" with a few puddles of kiosks participating.

Some of my thoughts:I need some sort of antenna for outside use with wifi.

I need a primary wifi access point.I could use a wifi router & access point to connect with the primary for each kiosk puddle.I could use a pair of wifi router & access point boxes, with directional antennae, as point to point.phone and tablet and pda and laptop boxes, in the hands of staff,could use this private wifi lan for event operations.I could put a LAMPP or XAMPP server someone on this lan for event operations
The server could have a connection to the public internet somehow

If I used one of the linux open-source wifi box, hotspot images or similar, I could manage this lan as a group of steamer-trunk, drop and setup stations.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To Campus Wireless Network

Feb 15, 2011

I've got Ubuntu 10.10 loaded on my HP mini, and haven't had any problem with wireless connection before. But since I've started going to my local community college, I've been completely unable to connect to the campus-wide wireless network save for once. I don't know anything about the network other than that it has no encryption.

I have only attempted to connect, thus far, using Ubuntu's built-in autoconnector. Is there a way that I can see what issue it's having, maybe get an error output? The auto connector can't seem to negotiate a DHCP lease, it just times out trying to talk to 255.255.255.255 on port 67. I can't think of why this would be, no one else I've talked to with a laptop has any problem connecting. Is there some, more sophisticated method of working out an IP address that Windows/Macintosh knows to do and Ubuntu doesn't?

Ubuntu Networking :: Campus Wifi Network Not Showing Up In Maverick?

Oct 12, 2010

I upgraded to Maverick over the weekend from Lucid, and at school yesterday, I could no longer connect to the campus wifi network in my office. I have no problem connecting to the wifi network at home, and my phone still sees and connects to the campus wifi network, so I think the problem is with my laptop (Gateway T-6345u), which doesn't even detect the campus network. As of last week, it connected automatically, and now it can't even see the network.

Ubuntu Networking :: No Internet Access Through Wireless Campus Network?

Feb 10, 2011

I am trying to connect to the college campus wifi network, but having difficulties in Linux.I am dual-booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10, and I use Google Chrome web browser on both. When I boot into Windows, my laptop connects to the network (as I can see from the taskbar icon) and I can (and currently am) connect in Chrome.However, in Ubuntu, it connects (or so the icon indicates) but Chrome doesn't load any pages.The campus network is unsecured, but once you open the browser, you are prompted with a log-in page (student ID and password) to actually connect.Here is my output for iwconfig:

Code:

Fedora Networking :: Connecting Home Network To Work Network

Sep 20, 2010

Currently my office use a Cisco Firewall which will only allow the ANYCONNECT utility to do the vpn connection. I found a Linux utility (OpenConnect) which will do the same thing, but allow me more flexibility with my networking needs.What I ultimately would like to have is to have a switch that I can connect any network device into it and be connected to the office. IE (my IP Work Phone and Computer) Currently I have is a computer with fedora 13 and two network cards eth0 (home network - connected to a router) and eth1 which I would like to connect a switch to. OpenConnect communicates fine and I can see the work network from the Fedora machine. It creates a vpn0 tun/tap device and I don't know how to pass communication to/from the eth1 device.

Do I try to iptables the ports for the phone and services I need on the computer? Or do I build bridge; and If I do what am I bridging. I have tried making a bridge from eth1 to vpn0 which reply's with unsupported device or something like that.Unfortunately my network skills are bit limited and my office says "it can't be done". Their solution is for me to buy a ASA5505 (or something device) and have a static IP. I would have to make it work as my router and even then it will only DHCP 10 ip addresses; which will cause a shortage of IP addresses in the house.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To A Windows XP Home Network?

Jul 4, 2010

I have a beefy Win Box desktop that i'm using as a media server and i have a home network setup already using windows xp. I had everything running fine and the PC connects flawlessly to my Bravia TV and both my ps3's so i know the network and sharing settings are setup just fine. Anyways i got tired of all the Windows 7 BS and decided i would once again use Ubuntu on my Toshiba netbook. So the question is how in the heck do i get my Ubuntu netbook to connect to the Desktop? I've tried browsing the fourms but either i'm missing something of just a little slow. What "extensions" would i need to get and how would i go about implementing it from there?

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting Laptop To UWS Wireless Network

Oct 6, 2010

I would share my long awaited success with connecting my ubuntu laptop up to my universities (University of Western Sydney) wireless network. The rumors appeared true and they have finally implemented 802.11x authentication instead of that horrible java app netdirect. I am sure you've been cursing at its erratic stability. There is no linux documentation for airUWS-Lite nor anything more imformative than there windows/mac point and click steps found at [URL]. However with a few simple clicks you can have stable working connection.

When connecting make sure you have theses settings.
Security: WPA & WPA2 Enterprise
Authentication: Protected EAP (PEAP)
#This is the settings that does not present itself correctly
Anonymous Identity: leave blank
PEAP Version: Automatic
Inner Authentication: MSCHAPv2
Username: <YOUR 8 DIGIT STUDENT NUMBER>

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To A Printer On Windows Network

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Internet Through Network Bridge

Nov 13, 2010

I setup a network bridge on pc A, with windows 7 installed on it, using windows default bridging tool. I connected computer B to computer A and Im trying to connect to the internet through the network bridge on computer A. Computer B (client) has two OS's installed, win XP and linux(tried with different distributions, didnt work). On windows XP everything is working, when i try to ping the router (after computer A) it also responds. On linux system nothing is working, and im not quite sure why.

I set up linux to receive IP adress from DHCP, which is router in this case (behind computer A), same way windows XP was configured. I decided to ask here, because I couldn't find anything on the net. My guess is windows-made bridge supports only windows-OS's but that would be kind of strange (its just a software bridge).

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To NAS - Cannot See My Synology NAS Drive On My Network

Jun 20, 2011

Having become so frustrated With the many bugs in 11.04 I have stepped backward and instead installed Ubuntu 10.10 onto my Dell laptop. Until now I have been very pleased, as nearly everything has worked well, straight out of the box. So, just as I thought I was home and dry I have noticed that I cannot see my Synology NAS drive on my network. This is doubly frustrating because my other PC, also running 10.10, has suddenly lost it's ability to see the NAS drive too. Throughout last week I used the NAS in conjunction with my Ubuntu PC without a hitch but now it's gone. The NAS is visible to both Windows and Macs it's just the Ubuntu machines that cannot use it. It is also vaguely annoying knowing that the NAS itself uses a Linux OS or maybe that could be a clue to what's wrong.

As things stand my Apple Macs can see each other, they see the Windows box, see the NAS and see the shared folders on the Ubuntu machines. The Windows machines see the Macs, each other, the NAS and the Linux shared folders. The Ubuntu machines only see the Apple Mac shares, no Windows and no other Ubuntu shared folder nor the NAS.

It is curious because the little program Avahi Zero Conf Browser can see absolutely everything on my network yet the Ubuntu GUI is proving to be the most difficult thing to network using anything other than than a web browser. Is there a concise definitive reason why Linux (Ubuntu) is so infernally difficult to network? I am not very experienced with Linux or the terminal but was hoping that this system might by now have become a little more user friendly for ordinary people.

Could there also have been something in a recent OS update that has killed off my PC running Ubuntu's ability to see the NAS where previously there has been no problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Wireless Network - But No Access

Aug 7, 2011

I have a fairly new install of 10.04 on a Dell laptop (about a week). Everything was running well, connecting wirelessly to the interneet through my home router (WPA/WPA2). Today, for some reason, I lost my connection to the internet. The network manager tells me I'm connected to my router, but all the lines on the wifi indicator are gray and there is no internet access. I reinstalled the 2 sets of packets for my BCN4312 (bcmwl-kernel-source and b43-fwcutter ), but no change.

Ubuntu Networking :: Dell Precision 390 Network Card Not Connecting?

Mar 29, 2010

So I bought a used Dell Precision 390 Workstation and installed Ubuntu 9.04 on it. Everything seems to work fine, except for the built-in network card. Well, the graphics don't really work right, either, but I rather expected that, and I'll get to it later.

Anyway, when I boot Ubuntu and try to get on the internet, it says I'm not connected. When I open Network Tools, in the "Devices" tab, I get three Network device options: Loopback Interface, Ethernet Interface (eth0), and Unknown Interface (pan0). When I click on the ethernet device option, it shows me the hardware address of the interface, that it has multicast enabled, and that it is "Active", but I get no IP address.

Is there something really stupid that I'm missing? Do I need to do something special the first time I hook up an ethernet cable? I don't seem to remember having to do that on other Ubuntu boxes.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Network Repeatedly Asking For Security Password?

Apr 9, 2010

I installed Ubuntu on an old desktop last night and am having some problems with my wireless connection.I've searched around a bit and tried a few solutions but nothing seems to be working so hopefully someone can help. I'm using a Netgear WG111v3 wireless USB adapter and am attempting to connect to a Sky Broadband modem, the connection shows up in the list of avaliable networks after clicking on the network symbol and after attempting to connect for a while it then asks for the WPA password.

I enter the password and then this repeats over and over again continuously asking for the password and me continuously entering it. I know the password is correct as I'm using it on my laptop and other home computer right now.I've tried connecting to a hidden wireless network and inserting the network name and password as some have suggested and I've also tried adding the details from my router into the connection; so that I have manually entered the information rather than automatically finding it, this also hasn't worked.I should probably add that earlier today I seemingly randomly got connected and then managed to run some updates but since then it has disconnected and the same problem is repeating over and over. Sorry if thats quite a long explanation but I thought I'd try and make it as clear as possible,

Ubuntu Networking :: Networkmanager - Set The Number Of Attempts At Connecting To A Network

May 6, 2010

set the number of retries networkmanager attempts to connect to a network to infinity?

I live in an area of Australia were wired internet dare not tread (or so say the ISPs). My only real choice is 3G wireless broadband, and even that is iffy at times. Often late at night the network towers do "something" (reset, maintenance, etc. - no idea) and the internet drops out, networkmanager tries to reconnect, fails, tries again, (etc. etc.) until it ultimately gives up, requiring human intervention when the towers are done with whatever it is they are doing. This happens frequently, and I'd like to have networkmanager keep trying "forever" until it connects so I don't have to restart the connection each morning.

Where would such a thing be set? How does networkmanager know when to give up?

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 Server Not Connecting To Internet (Wired Network)

sudo route add default gw 192.168.1.1

Each of those commands don't give me any error and it would seem like everything works fine, until I try to ping google or any website and I get an error that tells me that no host was found. I am using version 10.04 of Ubuntu server.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Wireless Network Takes Little More Time

Oct 26, 2010

I noticed that it takes a couple more seconds before Ubuntu connects to my wireless network when it wakes up from sleep. I didn't have this annoyance when I was using 10.04, and only appeared when I upgraded to 10.10. It takes about 5-7 seconds before it indicates that it's connecting. When I was using 10.04, it only took a maximum of 2 seconds for it to indicate that it's in the process of connecting to my network.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To WPA / WPA2 Network Wirelessly ( BCM 4315 )?

Nov 10, 2010

I've recently installed Lucid Lynx 10.04 on my Dell Studio which uses an internal BCM4315 wi-fi card to connect to the internet. I was hoping it would work upon the install, but deep down I knew I'd have to tweak it a little bit to get it up and running the way I wanted. The card was instantly recognized but, at first, wasn't detecting wireless networks. This was quickly and painlessly fixed using System > Administration > Hardware Drivers, which I used to install Broadcom B43 wireless driver (b43-fwcutter). I rebooted and could not detect the local wireless networks.

I entered my password to my home network (correctly, I quadruple checked) but, unfortunately, it continuously tries to connect to the network with no successful. Occasionally I'm prompted to re-entered the password and the process repeats. The network I'm trying to connect to is a WPA/WPA2 network which I've heard to be troublesome. I haven't yet tried connecting to a WEP network but I'm fairly certain it will work and I will get back to this post when I test it in a few hours.

I'm curious if this question has been answered or if the problem has been solved and I just simply don't have the google skills to find it.

Ubuntu Networking :: TP-Link Wireless Adapter (USB) On 11.04 - Not Connecting To Network?

May 19, 2011

i just installed Ubuntu 11.04 64bit on my desktop. i have a TP Link TL-WN321G (Ver 4.0) wireless usb adapter to connect to my wireless network (i used to use it with Windows XP).As expected (i'd read up a bit before installing Ubuntu), the adapter was autodetected - i could see my wireless network listed in the networks list dropdown, and lsusb showed it too.lsusb identifies "Bus 002 Device 002: ID 148f:2070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2070 Wireless Adapter"But i cannot connect to the network. When i select my network, it keeps trying to connect, but never succeeds in connecting.

i tried going through the forums for possible solutions, but most of them deal with how to get it working when the adapter is not detected, or when networks are not shown. Or they are for older Ubuntu versions.i use the same wireless network on my laptop (Ubuntu 9.04), and it has a WPA & WPA2 Personal security, with a password, which i've configured in the desktop as well.
