Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless To Wired Network Bridge

May 3, 2010

I am running ubuntu 9.10 on a dell xps m1530 laptop dual booting with windows 7. I am trying to achieve the following setup.

Wireless router <=========> Laptop <-----> Switch <-----> PS3

---- wired
==== wireless

Both laptop and ps3 have static ip addresses

The reason for this is I can connect to the internet on my ps3 through my laptop, and I can stream from my laptop to ps3 through wired connection. This works fine in windows 7 all I had to do was right click bridge connections. As I dual boot I don't want to have to make any changes to the settings on the ps3.

My interfaces are:
eth0 - wired
wlan0 - wireless

I installed bridge-utils and created a bridge and added both eth0 and wlan0 to it. However I could not get it to work. I have also tried internet sharing through network manager and firestarter.

Networking :: Trying To Bridge Wired / Wireless Networks

Jan 30, 2011

[PC]--(wire)--[Router1]--(wire)--[Laptop]==(wireless)==[Router2]::[Internet]

My setup is above, I hope it comes out OK on this forum, and someone can understand what its supposed to be! My problem is I am not sure how to get [PC] to be able to see [Internet]. From [Laptop] I can get both networks to work, and have tried using brctl to bridge them, but as soon as I do "ifconfig br0 up" neither network... works anymore (cant ping either router).

Fedora Networking :: How To Bridge Wired And Wireless Connections

May 29, 2009

My current network setup at home is all wired, and that's worked for me so far. Now I want to set up a wireless connection on my Linux box that I can connect to with both my laptop and my Nintendo DS. I'd like to be able to host a wireless network from the Linux box, connect to it with some other wireless device, and have the wireless device communicate with the router, the internet, and other computers on the wired network. I have the wired network set up (statically configured) as eth0. Other network adapters present on the system are eth1 (not in use) and wlan0, wlan1, and wlan2 (identical cards, remnants from the last time I experimented with wireless).

So I guess my question comes in two parts:
1) How do I set up wlan0 such that it can host? Is Ad-hoc mode okay for this, or do I need to set it up in Master mode?
2) How do I forward connections between the wireless net and the router?
Note that I will be using WEP, as it is all that the NDS supports. I'd like to set up MAC filtering as well, but not until after I get something that works.

Debian Configuration :: Bridge Wireless And Wired Connections?

May 17, 2011

I'm trying to bridge connections between a wired and a wireless connection in one of my computers. I was told it was impossible due to low-level limitations in the wireless subsystem, but apparently theres a way if you somehow forward packets from one port to the other. Is there a way I can achieve this?

Networking :: Setup A Bridge Using Bridge-utils Within /etc/network/interfaces?

Dec 8, 2008

I want to set up a bridge using bridge-utils within /etc/network/interfaces like is shown here in this guide: [URL] The problem is that, at the same time, I want eth0 to have a specific static IP address. Right now I have a configuration for eth0. This guide tells me that I should not configure eth0 outside of the br0 configuration.

Networking :: Bridge A Ppp Dongle With A Wired LAN?

Feb 5, 2011

I have a LAN (2 PC !) wire connected and I use a Huawei e182e to join the internet (If you have problem to install the Huawei on Linux, don't install drivers proposed on forums or don't try to unlock it. It's not necessary, simply install a kernel > 2.6.34 and it will install itself as a perfect plug and play). On the unconnected machine, the Internet is accessible normally from the broadband dongle, but the connection stops when I plug the LAN cable. It's normal since the PC cannot use both network connections simultaneously without a previous configuration, and the question is precisely there !

Bridging could be a solution but mobile broadband uses ppp protocol that is not on the same layer as wired LAN. brctl refuses to add the key into the bridge configuration. Vtun seems a better approach since it works more independently from the protocols, but it must be installed on both sides and the broadband dongles does not accept software installation in it. Documentation from Huawei is quite inexistent. Actually the story could be the same for a computer connected to a wired LAN and using a wireless dongle, but here bridging is feasible (not tested by me) because they work on the same layer. I tried to deactivate LAN switching in the BIOS: no result static address with gateway pointing on the other device (I tried everything) no result. How to bridge a ppp dongle with a wired LAN?

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 Cannot Connect To The Network - Wired Or Wireless

May 5, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on an HP Pavilion dv6000 series laptop, dual-boot. Everything is working except the networking. It can see wireless networks, and when I type in the password for my wireless network, it tries to connect, then asks for the password again. When I plug in the Ethernet cable, again it tries to connect, but after a few seconds gives up and tells me I am now offline.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired Network Stopped Working / Wireless OK

Sep 21, 2010

I'm not a total newbie, but run into some strange problems with my installation of Lucid.Everything was working fine yesterday. I shut down the laptop and powered it up this morning and had problems with network. I have two NICs (wired and wireless). Both are set to pick up IP settings from DHCP and both do, however when using wired network I can't communicate with outside world - can't even ping the default gateway (but pinging 127.0.0.1 or IP address of the NIC no problem, so stack should be OK).When on the wireless network everything works fine (otherwise I would struggle to write this post ).What is very weird though is that I have a VMWare Player installed and using Windows VM on wired network works just great!

I noticed that when you're persistent it happens that you can ping but huge chunks of traffic are lost (e.g. packet 1-10 would pass, 11-40 would be lost, 41-59 would pass and so on).I restarted Ubuntu, tried shutting down interfaces, disabling networking and nothing helped. I don't recall performing any changes (at least that I would be aware of).Can anyone suggest something?BTW. This is not DNS issue as both IP addresses and FQDNs do not work. When I refer to using a given network (wired or wireless) the other one is down with ifconfig command...

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired / Wireless Network Cards Not Working

Nov 30, 2010

I'm new to Ubuntu - I've decided to give Ubuntu Studio a go as an alternative to Windows. However, after installing it, neither of my network cards work. I have a Intel Pro Wireless 3945ABG wireless card, and a Broadcom Netlink Gigabit Wired card. Neither work, And I'm not sure how to. I've tried searching, and have come up with the .tgz file here, but I have no idea what to do with it I'm concentrating on the wireless card for the moment, seeing as that will be the main one I use.

Ubuntu Networking :: Setup A Wireless Or Wired Network To Share Connection

Feb 25, 2010

I'm trying to set up a wireless or wired network (wireless would be better...) to share my connection with my housemate, as well as with some devices. The only guide I found regarding this (I must admit, I didn't have much time to put into research), was dating back to 2005, and although doable, seemed somewhat confusing. Getting to the point: is there a way (maybe a standalone program, or some kind of plugin) to share a connection?

Ubuntu Networking :: 11.04 Management Of Network Card / Wired/wireless Setup?

May 1, 2011

I am facing a problem with the management of my network card after installing Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit Desktop edition.

There are two Network Cards and one USB adapter which I'd like to drive:

- Ethernet controller Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5703X Gigabit Ethernet (rev 02)
- Ethernet controller Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
- Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8187 Wireless Adapter

Actually I need the wireless adapter to connect to the AP, so both of the ethernet card should be disabled. Infact, when I try to access to the AP I must disable the eth0 card by using (sudo ifconfig eth0 down), otherwise the route assigns the default gw (192.168.1.1) to the eth0 device and the network is useless.

Ubuntu Networking :: Dell Vostro 3500 / Broadcom STA Wireless - Wired Network

Mar 31, 2011

I just got a new laptop...Dell Vostro 3500. Took off Win put on Ubuntu...all went fine. I did all updates and app downloads using my WIRED NETWORK as wireless wasnt working. However I was more interested in setting up the new computer. Anyway so after all is installed up pops "Broadcom STA Wireless driver" Proprietary driver do you want to install. Obviously I said yes...

Well now My wireless is working great but for some reason my Wired (auto eth0) no longer works. It just says disconnected and its grayed in. I'm pretty much a newbie but did try a few things like:

apt-get update
apt-get "something" essential (thats not a command just from memory it was something like that)

However I've had no luck. This Broadcom driver seems to have knocked out my wired network.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired + Wireless Connected But Natty Picks Wrong Network For Internet

May 15, 2011

I have a wireless network (192.168.1.0) that's bridged to the Internet and a wired one (192.168.0.0) that's only local. When I am connected to both networks, Natty wants to route my Internet traffic through the wired, local-only one.

Can I make it automatically "just work", so that the right network is chosen for Internet traffic? Otherwise, what's the workaround?

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Bridge Wireless LAN

Jul 30, 2011

I am trying to connect networks connected via locked down wireless routers. Here is the setup:

Internet <-> eth0 - server - eth1 providing DHCP <-> hub <-> wired clients & to WiFi router with NAT & DHCP <-> WiFi clients.

I want the wired clients and the WiFi clients to be able to talk to each other directly, but the locked down WiFi router (meraki) is in the way. the wired clients get their IP address from the server, the wireless clients get theirs from the meraki WiFi router. I can't reconfigure the WiFi router to bridged mode without paying meraki a sizeable annual license fee. What options are out there to get through the WiFi router? I came across OpenVPN and ethernet bridging, but broke networking on the server when trying to configure the br0 interface. I followed these instructions: [URL]

Ubuntu Networking :: Setting Up A Wireless Bridge ?

Oct 18, 2010

I have spent the last 24 hours trying to work a wireless bridge (a D-Link DAP-1522) into my network configuration. It would connect to our gateway here at home (some 2WIRE piece of garbage AT&T hands out, but I digress), and two computers (an Ubuntu Desktop and an Ubuntu Server) would connect via the bridge.

The bridge SEEMS to connect to the router, and indeed, the Ubuntu Desktop PC is able to access the internet. The server, however, is not, and neither computer can communicate with the other (ping, SSH, etc.) furthermore, the router recognizes the presence of these two computers on some level, but does not seem to know their IP addresses (I assume this is related to the computers' inability to communicate).

Before I get too far into this, here are a few links/items for the sake of clarity. The first is a shoddy diagram of my (proposed) network topology, for all of you out there who, like myself, understand things visually:[url]

This is the output from running "ifconfig eth0" on the Ubuntu Desktop PC, which sits behind the bridge. The PC is connected, and can ping hosts across the Internet, but can only ping the router locally (that is, it can't ping any other device in the house, on either side of the bridge):

Code:

The router uses wireless encryption, not MAC addresses, to restrict access/traffic, and all wireless devices (including the bridge) have been provided with the proper credentials. There shouldn't be any devices being denied access on account of their MAC address. In fact, the router's control panel lists the PC and the Server among the recognized devices (even lists their MAC addresses), but provides no IP address and always considers the two computers to be "offline." And yet, I am writing this very post from the Ubuntu PC. Sigh.

I am very comfortable with computers, and reasonably comfortable with Ubuntu/Linux and the Linux command line -- I've been using the operating system for just over a year now -- but networking issues have always been perched right on the edge of my understanding. In short, it's likely this issue has more to do with me than it does with the hardware itself (although the more forums I browse, the more I start to doubt this bridge...).

Ubuntu Networking :: Using Desktop As A Wireless Bridge

Nov 19, 2010

I have a wireless network that is upstairs, i cannot run a cable down here, however i've got 3 boxes that i want to run as servers..

1. Desktop running 10.10 (the one with the wireless card)
2. Server running 9.10 (no wireless card.. is currently connected through a wireless B gaming bridge)
3. An old P4 that I will be putting 9.10 on and running as a server.

Take the Desktop that has the working wireless card as my normal desktop and also running as a passthrough for the switch to go to the other two while still allowing all of the port forwarding to the other two to be handled by the router upstairs so basically what I want to do is this

= wireless connection
- wired connection
[Internet]--[wireless router]==[Desktop]--[switch]--[server1 + server2]

Everything i've come across so far has been for going from a wired router to turn a box into a wireless AP unfortunately i need the reverse.. a wireless bridge. if someone can point me in the right direction (or i'm not against hand holding if it's available.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Bridge IP Settings?

I first want to say that I am very new to Ubuntu so please forgive any ignorance I have successfully given internet access to my xbox by connecting it via crossover cable to my ubuntu 10.04 laptop and given the eth0 settings "share with other computers" My issue is that the ip address being given to the xbox is 10.42.43.10

How can I change this ip address given, or use a static ip address (ie 192.168.x.x) because using this ip address keeps my xbox from accessing windows shares on WORKGROUP on my 192.168.x.x network.

Ubuntu :: Can't Connect To A Wired Or Wireless Network?

Aug 11, 2010

I have a laptop with Ubuntu 9.04 on it. I wanted to try out fluxbox, so I did a apt-get install fluxbox. When I went into fluxbox, I was having trouble getting connected to my network wirelessly. I saw a post online that said to install wicd. So I did a apt-get install wicd. This removed the Gnome network manager (nm-applet) which I didn't realize that it would do. I removed wicd when I saw this is what happened, and now I can't connect to a wired or wireless network. I tried connecting to my wired network, and I ran

Code:
sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.115

but I still can't access the internet, or other things on the network.
