Ubuntu Networking :: PC Keeps Trying To Connect To Automatically Nearby WiFi

Jul 5, 2011

Well I have a nearby WiFi network that my PC keeps trying to connect to automatically. I don't know why since mine is closer. I tried changing the channel and have deleted the offending network under "Edit Connections" but of course it keeps comming back. The problem is most annoying on boot up when it starts trying to connect automatically as soon as the desktop is loaded. Is there anything Ican do to "hide" this network from my PC's vission?

Networking :: Ubuntu 9.04 Can't Connect To Wifi With Intel Wireless WiFi Link 5100?

Aug 29, 2009

I have only had a few weeks worth of experience with linux, so I'm probably considered a newbie at this but I felt like giving it a shot. I just configured my new Toshiba Satellite A505-S6969 to jaunty. Most of the transition is going well but I'm stuck with a few issues, one of which is getting my wifi to work. Right now I'm working off of an ethernet cable.spci returns

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Not Loading Automatically?

Jan 11, 2010

I am a complete newbie to Ubuntu. Just installed it today and everything I have done so far has been found and worked out using forums such as this. So far I have installed ndiswrapper, the latest version, and got my wifi card working. In fact I am online now writing this!

Problem is when I shutdown and reboot. My wireless connection won't automatically run. It won't even show in the top left that I have a wifi connection. There is no "enable wireless" tickbox. I have to type in the terminal:

sudo depmod - a
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
then my WEP key
then it works.

BTW I have no idea what those commands do I just found them on a forum. I can't seriously have to do this everything I boot up?!! Can this be automated or is there a better fix?

Ubuntu Networking :: Automatically Join Open Wifi?

Apr 19, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit on my Dell studio 1557 with a broadcom 1394 wireless card.

I am wondering if it is possible to set my laptop to autojoin open wireless networks. I like traveling and it popped into my head. I am a novice linux user, long time windows user. I know its possible just how. like a terminal script or just a check mark somewhere. i broke my right hand and arm in a motorcycle wreck recently.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Does Not Connect Automatically?

Aug 26, 2010

Hi all, a new Linux user and long time Windows user, I have added a dual Boot to my Samsung N220 netbook to dual boot to Windows 7 or Ubuntu Netbook, Very pleased thus far, I had a little trouble getting the wirless network to connect and had to update the drivers via a wired connection.

My issue now is that I have to manually connect to my wirless network each time I use the netbook, I checked the box to automatically connect, but this does not seem to work. If I use the link at the top and select 'Connect to Hidden network' (my SSID is hidden) it will then allow me to select a previous connection and then connects fine, but I thought like Windows it would have connected automatically if a listed network was in range. Any ideas what the problem might be or suggestions to get this working better?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Won't Connect Automatically

Jun 1, 2011

I'm using a Linksys router and have just installed Ubuntu 11.04. I was hoping each team I logged in that it would connect automatically to my router but I always need to manually click on it to connect.

Under Network Connections - wireless it is listed as Auto Linksys but doesn't connect automatically.

Is there a simple way to resolve this? I can't see it.

Ubuntu Networking :: Lucid Won't Connect Automatically To Hidden Wi-Fi APs?

Jun 29, 2010

I've seen other users post this same issue, but can't find anyone who has been able to solve this problem...

I have SSID broadcasts turned off on my wireless router (always a good choice for increased security). Even though I have put a check mark on "Connect Automatically" in my wireless network's configuration under SYSTEM > PREFERENCES > NETWORK CONNECTIONS, it will not connect automatically. I have to click on the network manager icon in the notification area of my desktop, and select "CONNECT TO HIDDEN WIRELESS NETWORK" in order to get online. Network manager does indeed connect automatically to APs that broadcast their SSID. (I don't want to enable SSID broadcasts on my router.)

Ubuntu Networking :: Automatically Connect To Cloested Wireless?

Sep 11, 2010

I'm still new to ubuntu and love it so far but one thing I can't seem to figure out that I use to have in windows is the ability to connect to the closest wireless network available (either one with a stored key or the closest without a password). My house has have two routers and depending where I am in the house one signal can be very week and sometimes lost where another is very strong I'd like ubuntu to connect to the closest one if it's not already connected to one when going to friends/school ect it automatically connects to any network even if it's not stored

Ubuntu Networking :: 11.04 WLAN Does Not Connect Automatically On Reboot?

May 7, 2011

I have a problem on Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit. The wlan does not connect automatically on reboot, although "Connect automatically" is ticked in network manager. I always have to choose "Connect to hidden wlan", choose my config, enter my password, then connect. Once connected everything works fine. But it's kind of annoying to manually connect each time after a restart.

- hidden SSID from router
- mode -> infrastructure
- connect automatically -> ticked
- available to all users -> ticked
- Encryption -> WPA & WPA2 personal

Ubuntu Networking :: WiFi Won't Connect

Dec 2, 2010

Having played around with ubuntu a fair bit I decided to breathe life into an old thinkpad with a pcmcia wireless card, by following the minimal install instructions and using lxde window manager etc.. Everything works fine apart from the fact that I cannot connect wirelessly. The card picks up and lists connections but whenever I have clicked on a connection the dail spins and then it gives up.I installed network-manager and managed to get nm-applet appearing in the sysTray otherwise I would not even have known there was wireless connections there.

I was thinking there maybe some conflict with another network manager, does this sound likely?

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Cannot Connect To WiFi

Jan 14, 2011

I'm having an issue recently with Ubuntu 10.04 x64. Connecting to my wifi is not working. I believe it is some kind of issue with the router. On Windows 7 the only way that I could connect to the net was by copying the network profile to a usb flashdrive from another computer and loading it mine. The wireless signal just keeps attempting to connect.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Cannot Connect With WiFi

May 28, 2011

I have Ubuntu 10.04 on my EeePC 1000H. I don't use this computer often but it has always worked before... I suspect an update did this to me. I've recently swapped wireless routers but all my other machines have been able to connect to the new router. I can see the SSID and the signal strength is high but when I try to connect to it, it just attempts for a long time then asks me for my password again. I am currently connected to wired network.

Code:
michael@michaelsEeeUbuntu:~$ nm-tool
NetworkManager Tool
State: connected .....
pan0 Interface doesn't support scanning.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To WiFi

Jun 17, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 yesterday and my wireless didn't work so I searched a little and found a way to make it work; Uninstalled bcmwl-kernel-source and installed firmware-b43-lpphy-installer and b43-fwcutter. And it worked. But today I accidentally pressed the "turn off wireless" button on my laptop. I obviously pressed it again and thought it would work but it doesn't. Now I find networks and stuff but I can't connect to them. It tries for awhile and then asks me to enter the password which I do (it is correct) and then it tries to connect for a few minutes again and then it asks me for the password again.

Some info:

Code:
lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub (rev 07)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset

Ubuntu Networking :: Gnome Network Manager , Vpn Connect Automatically?

Sep 15, 2010

I have ticked the box Connect Automatically in the OpenVPN setup I configured in the gnome network manager but it doesn't connect on startup. It connects perfectly ok if I manually select the VPN but i'd like it work immediately on launch.

I have autologin on Ubuntu but since there is no VPN password to decrypt I don't see why it should be a problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.10 - Cannot Connect To Office WiFi (WPA)

Jan 4, 2011

I am running 10.10 on a Toshiba NB255 netbook. Wireless works find for me at home and worked last week at a hotel. At home I just use WEP, and my office network uses WPA. I can connect just fine from my work laptop but not from this netbook. The network shows up fine in the network manager and it asks for the WPA password, but doesn't establish a connection. Every once in a while it will say it is connected and has full strength but I can't ping anything, and within a minute or so it drops again. IIRC yesterday it connected via wireless and actually worked for maybe a minute before dropping at it hasn't worked since. Like I said, this has worked on other wireless networks.

Here is some output from dmesg:
Code:
[55086.034476] wlan0: authenticate with 00:15:62:ff:6e:89 (try 1)
