Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Connect To Wireless Connection?
Oct 30, 2010
I ve just install ubuntu 10.10 and am unable to connect to wireless connect. I was able to connect on the try ubuntu before install option. I have dual booted Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10. I have tried connecting without the WEP key and still no luck. Just found it strange that connect on try it but not after full install.
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my HP Pavilion dv5. My laptop has a Broadcom 4312 wireless adapter. The driver for the adapter was installed by Ubuntu as a proprietary driver. The wireless light is on and I can see the available networks, but I am unable to connect to my network. The correct authorization is set(WPA/WPA2) and I have entered the passphrase correctly.
I am able to connect to the wireless network successfully from my Windows login(that is how I confirmed that the passphrase is accurate). The network shows that it is trying to connect, but the wireless authentication dialog(asking for the passphrase) keeps popping up. Incidentally, the same thing happened when I tried openSuSe and Fedora on a spare laptop. The windows systems can connect, but not the Linux systems.
I've just installed 11.04 Natty on an old Laptop (Dell Lattitude C400) and am unable to connect to my home network (wired LAN connection, no wireless). The laptop previously had WinXP installed and was able to connect (I have also double checked the cables and ports and they're all functioning ok).
I upgraded to 10.10 and have everything setup, installed my wifi card fine with ndiswrapper so I can connect to my neighbors which isn't protected but mine is. Everytime I try to connect it will ask for the WEP so I put it in, it tries connecting then ask for the WEP again then repeats over and over....does 10.10 not like WEP connections? I don't know what to do.
I just switched from Ubuntu to Fedora 13 because I was unable to get Ubuntu to connect to wireless networks. I tried everything suggested in help and forums, and kept getting "Bad Password" with WICD and Network Manager. Now, with Fedora...I still can't connect.
Problem #1: The guide says to "...make sure that the relevant wireless interface (usually eth0 or eth1) is controlled by NetworkManager," and that I do this via: System>Administration>Network
However, there is no Network option under System>Administration.
Problem #2: I open Network Manager, which displays a list of networks. I click on mine, configure it with WPA and the right password, and it fails to connect: "The network connection has been disconnected."
I've been using this network forever With windows and I can't figure out how to connect to it now with ubuntu...I have a build-in wireless card and I know the name/password of the connection, but my computer cannot seem to locate it. I've looked through guides and none of them work..
Using an old (5 year) laptop with XP loaded I installed wubi to save altering partitions etc. It all downloaded fine and connected to the internet by wire. I set up the wireless connection using WPA but could not connect. The wirelsss card does see my network and others. After lurking around the forum and trying various things I found that I could connect without encryption. The more I read the more I became confused. Anyway what I could glean about my Wireless Card it is a Intersil Prism2 mini usb adapter - but also shows up as an Acer ?? Warplink 802.11.
Using lshw I found this reference to wireless
I became even more confused and got a bit lost using the various codes in the terminal and looking up things about drivers etc but would like to persist.
i just installed the 10.0.4 version. My problem is that I cant connect to the internet. When I add a new wireless connection, it says that its connected but i cant ping the router or connect to any websites. It keeps auto assigning me with a 10.42.43.1 ip which doesn't make any since because my router's is nowhere close to that.
I was able to connect linux server on windows through putty.But now i am unable to connect that,I can able to ping that IP.SSH daemon is also running. shall i need to change anything in configuration file...
I have setup an OpenVPN server on Ubuntu server. I am able to connect with Windows clients. I am, however, unable to correctly connect using Ubuntu.
If the router firewall is blocking the pings to keep the connection alive, then the connection initially does not work, but will work after the first timeout and reconnect. If the firewall does not block the pings then the initial connection attempt never times and therefore the connection does not work.
Attached is the readout from the client.
The first attempt gives error ERROR: Linux route add command failed: external program exited with error status: 7
Successive attempts work, they just time out every two minutes.
Earlier today I decided I wanted to switch back over to ubuntu, my internet was working fine, but as soon as i reformatted to Linux my modem stopped showing any lights under ADSL - TX and RX. and I can't connect to my wireless connection anymore. What should I doooooooo
I have installed the driver of my Broadcom Wireless card BCM4312 ( Acer extenza 5620 laptop) and when i try to connect to my wireless connection it just try to connect for a while and then go offline i tested another usb wireless card and still no success
I have been running Meerkat in its various forms for the last few weeks. Wireless connection has not been a problem at all. I rebooted about 15 mins ago and on restarting the wireless connection will not connect. I checked to see what the problem was and clicked on Edit Connections and on the wireless tab.
My wireless is set to auto and its name is SKY 24550. I now have 2 entries in the same name and the one that is trying to connect is asking for wep 128 bit security details to be entered. My connection used WPA&WPA2 personal.
Ok, I thought I'll delete the new one (with the different security setting) and try again.
No good, it still asks for the same security details.
So I go back into edit connections and the new one is back again! I can't get rid of it, and while it's there the one that should connect isn't getting the chance.
Fortunately ethernet is working ok and I also have a Natty install which also connects ok through the old wireless connection, but not in Maverick.
10.04 in a couple of identical lenovo laptops (of friends) suddenly have stopped connecting successfully to wireless, coinciding approximately with a mains power socket fail at the modem router, now fixed. presumably the machines were trying to connect to the access point, which may or may not have been working, but themodem router was not. Now, internet connection and wireless access point is fixed ok and is back up, and i can connect wirelessly to the access point ok using an eeepc with 10.04.2 with no problem so the access point is working ok
the target laptop/s are still ok via wired ethernet, and can *also* connect to a neighbours open wireless (a british telecom so called fon network, it asks for an account password), and all local wireless networks can be seen normally, and the home access point ssid can also be seen ok. so the aptop wireless is connecting ok, but not to this particular access point now. maybe someting has got screwed up? it is wpa2 and when clicked, after a long-ish time, the authentication is requested, then given, correctly, and still not connecting, asks for authentication again etc etc. no local secure wallet is being used.
when upgrading these laptops for my friend some time ago from 9.04 i have a small recall that 10.04 had a odd thing with wireless authentication (?) bug? i have deleted the network connections gui listing for this ssid and restarted the laptop, still no joy.
I've been at this the last 3 hours now or so. I am not a very good with Linux, I am fine with all other areas. I have this laptop, with a Intel Pro 2200BG card. The idea was to install a lxde lightwieght on it and use PCLINUXOS, because its "easy". This computer is for internet browsing and thats it. Under the Network Center -- I can see all networks, including neighbours. When I try to connect to my router via Wireless, I get connection failed over and over.
I then tried doing all the following: Changing the router from WEP to, WPA, WPA2 personal, WPA2 Enterprise Changing the SSID, broadcasting to ON, changing the SSID name I've used various different passwords, and reset the router now about 50 times. I am connecting to my Router (as Ive changed the SSID and noticed it picks up the new name). (Yes I can see the correct MAC addreess). Yes I am on the right channel, all good here.
My Nintendo DS is connecting fine with all the changed settings now. The wireless card worked fine under Windows XP (However I just removed the operating system since I really had no need for it). I've tried every other mode, it works wired. Like I had explained above, I downloaded a what I thought was an easy verison (distro), I was really hoping to get away from the crazy windows life with crazy errors and instability.
I did try enabling display log, and doing it manually by adding a connection, etc. The log tells me about as less would a windows event log: it says Problems occurred during the network connectivity test This can be caused by invalid network config or problems w/ your momde / router Reluanch, etc.
I can connect to the internet fine with wvdial and wvdialconf; heck I am even posting from my PCLinuxOS FM Distro. I want to setup an ethernet connection between two PC's, one running PCLOS 2010.11 FullMonty and the other Knoppix 6.2.0. Knoppix is fine and setting up a connection is simple but with PCLOS I have been having many problems trying to set it up. I tried using the drakconnect tool but it did not work. I tried assigning it a static IP Address but the other PC would still not pick it up and to to it all I keep getting the same error message about problems during the network connectivity test!
Everything else works fine on Ubuntu 9.10 except when I try to connect to the internet. I have wireless. It just keeps connecting nonstop and never connects. I don't know what to do. Please help me. What should I do? I'm using Acer Aspire 5534 with Windows 7.
No problems till about a week ago.A week ago I upgraded to Lucid and could not get the DVD drive to mount no matter what. The OS saw it but would not mount it...... uninstall and re -install Karmic.As soon as the patches are installed from the update manager, I lose my wireless completely. Wired connection still works.
I have tried different things from here and other sites. Basically I need to know how to enable my wireless card. There is no switch and key combinations (ALT+ F2) don't do anything. Connectivity in Win 7 is fine.
The Applet says wireless is disabled and so does the output from $sudo lshw -C network.It sees the interface but the network is disabled. lsmod shows the driver. iw list scan says does not support scanning. Newtwork is down.I know there is something in the updates that is messing the Intel WiFi Link 5100 up. On a fresh install all works till updated.
I am running Ubuntu 10.4 AMD64 on a HP Pavilion dv4Z-1200 laptop which I had manually assigned a temporary static IP through the DHCP server to the wireless connection, say 92. The server assigns the IP based on MAC.I later reassigned my standard IP to it, 80, but whenever I connect to the network with the Ubuntu wireless connection set to Automatic, it is still picking up 92 (which is outside the range of the DHCP assigning authority, which is 100-120).
I can force 80 manually, but I would rather the DHCP server issue the correct address, rather than tell it which one I want (kind of the whole purpose behind assigning static IPs, no?)I don't know... there is something wrong with this OS installation, because my internet connection is painfully intermittent, to the point of unusability, where other computers on the network are working fine. If I boot the same machine with 9.10 64AMD, the wireless assigned IP is correct and the internet seems to be working fine.
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my Dell Inspiron 1545 64-bit laptop. Before that I used Windows7. In Windows, the internet connection worked perfectly well. But after installing Ubuntu, I am unable to connect to the internet. The network-manager applet finally says that "You are disconnected". When I do the "ifconfig", I got no IP address.
So, I installed Ubuntu 9.04 in the same system. But the problem persists.
I gone through many posts in this forum but nothing was useful.
I did a clean install of the latest version of Ubuntu. For some reason, there are still internet-issues. When I tried out the following command
Code: telnet open ftp.microsoft.com 21 I got Code: telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out
Also, during install of the new ubuntu, it was unable to reach the repos for downloading. Odd thing is that I can go online, and that when I type 'ftp.microsoft.com' in my browser, it displays the file-hierarchy.
I have just installed Linux Mint 8 to an Asus A6000. My problem is that the computer won't connect with my wireless router. I have tried with MAC-adress and such, but still no respons. I also tried to connect with a cable to my modem, but no response there either.
I think I may lack some drivers, to what I think is Broadcom b43, but I am not sure. I tried to download the drivers on my other computer, and transfered them to the Asus. I managed to install 2/4 drivers, but on the two others, I get this message "Failed to fetch ... Couldn't reach archive.ubuntu.com"
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) on my HP laptop. My office desktop uses Windows 7 Home Edition. I created an adhoc connection on my desktop pc because I also want have an internet connection on my laptop. But Ubuntu seems do not detected the adhoc I created on my pc. I also tried to connect using the hidden wireless network and entering all the necessary access (wep key, etc...) but still didn't work. Is there any way that I could connect my Ubuntu on a adhoc? Is that possible?
I am using a Linksys WMP11 V27 pci card that supposed to be talking to a Linksys BEFW11S4 wireless router (802.11B) ...I am able to connect directly to internet (ethernet cable hooked to this wireless router) ... but for indepedence I need to go wireless.I defined the configuration using the Network Connections ... also through ndisgtk .. can't seem to get this two to consolidate.On /var/log syslog I see ....

I have just installed ubuntu 10.04 using the wubi installer to dual-boot my machine. Under ubuntu, I am not able to connect to the internet or my router. Everything works fine under windows. I have tried to find relevant information in the forums, but nothing seems to work for me. I have tried disabling ipv6, setting a static ip, but no go. ifconfig shows no IP, dhclient results in no DHCP offers and pinging my router's IP results in Network is Unreachable.
I just dual-booted my Acer Aspire 3810TZ laptop with Ubuntu 10.04. When I first tried to connect to my home wireless network, it connected fine. However, now whenever I start the laptop, it will not connect. The network appears in the available networks list, but it fails to connect. I know the network is ok, because I can still connect to it fine from Windows.
My network adapter is Intel Wifi 1000 BGN. Apparently (from [URL]) the drivers for this card should be part of the distribution.
I can't understand why it connected once, but (without any changes to the system at all) it won't work now.
My laptop has been working fine with ubuntu 10.04, and earlier today it shut down after running out of battery. I came to use itr and discovered that the wifi icon had disappeared from the panel bar, and it won't connect to the wireless networkor via a wired connection.I have had a play around with this, tried ping -c5 google.comresult was:ping: unknown host google.comand ping -c5 18.104.22.168result: onnect:etwork is unreachable.I have other computers connecting to this network and know that it is working fine.
