I am using MTS datacard. I have usb_modeswitch installed and have configured the wvdial.conf file. When I do sudo wvdial cdma, the IPs and DNS addresses are also allocated but I still cant access internet.
dmesg | grep -e 'tty' -e 'modem'
[ 0.000000] console [tty0] enabled [ 11.098238] USB Serial support registered for GSM modem (1-port) [ 11.098352] option 6-1:1.0: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected
im using mandrake linux 2010.0 , and i connected my router cable (dlink) to the computer, and it detects without needing configuration to the 'eth0' and it shows me the ip the dns and gateway, everything ok, but then i go in firefox it says that i couldent connect because theres no internet connection,ive looked at the proxys the firewall, tried to uninstal the eth0, the ppp0 and install then again and still the same,does any one have an idea of what could be?
When I connect my PDA (AT&T Tilt with Windows Mobile 6.1) to my desktop via USB (my desktop is connected to Internet via LAN), I can't access Internet from my PDA. How can I share Internet from my desktop with my mobile phone?
p.s. I can only find how to access Internet on a desktop using a mobile phone as a modem.
I am trying to setup vpn to access folders and files from my school. VPN is connected now through networkmanager, but I don't know how to actually gain access to the folders on the school server.
Is it through nautilus? Or the "Connect to Server"? The school provides addresses that begins with \.. something, and I have tried typing it in to nautilus and the "Connect to Server" but it fails to connect.
I have googled this but all I find is how to connect to vpn manually or through networkmanager, and not how I then can access the folders on the server.
I've been using my upstairs computer with no problems recently up until this evening, when I rebooted it did an automatic scan of my disks, so I left it to it's thing and when I came back ubuntu had successfully booted, and had seemingly successfully connected to my wireless network as usual.
I've been through the wireless troubleshooting guide, paying special attention to sections 4 and 6 but to no avail, while I'm apparently connected, and have been assigned an IP by my router I'm unable to access anything outside my computer, including the router itself. This happened before, however I solved it by reinstalling ubuntu, and I'd rather not do that again!

I am facing very strange problem with my Dell with WiFi card (04:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless WiFi Link 5100) It seems I am connected to the WiFi but can not access internet I have to disable networking and re-enable it to access internet.
I have installed ubuntu 10.04 and STA wireless driver. I am using a wimax modem, the wireless is connected (have IP addresses) but I do not have access to the internet.I also have installed a windows XP as a guest OS (ubuntu is the host) on vmware. By using a bridged network connection, I am able to access internet. So I guess the problem is related to the ubuntu wireless driver.
Ive got two connections, one is the eth0, that is the LAN connection to the DSL modem (192.168.1.1) and the other is the DSL connection that I connect to use the internet. Now I can only connect to one of the two at a time, so when I'm connected to the internet, I am not able to access 192.168.1.1. How do I use the two simultaneously?
Is there away to view wireless access points without being connected. I am having trouble getting connected to my wireless DSL modem. I have no problems connecting with Windows Vista. Just can not get Ubuntu 9.10 to connect. iwconfig says no associated with access point. I can connect with ethernet cable.
Background infoMy laptop (MySN MG6.c) is dual-booted with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.10, and connected to the internet through a router (Digitus DN-11004-O), which is set-up to use DHCP. The internet connection works fine under Windows, and my previous laptop, which also ran Ubuntu 9.10, had no problems connecting to the internet through that router.The network adapter is an Atheros AR8131 PCI-E (also detected as Attansic under Ubuntu)stem infoResults from running various diagnostics (I have removed the output that relate to the wireless connection, as I don't use it):
Code: $ uname -a Linux valyria 2.6.31-14-generic-pae #48-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 16 15:22:42 UTC 2009 i686
I have an external hard drive connected to my router. From Windows I can access it, but from Ubuntu I can see the hard drive, but when I try to access, I'm asked for a password. However my network does not have a password neither the hard drive. What must I do?
I have internet from KabelBW (cable modem which doesnt require any username,password,dns,mac...) they gave me a cisco modem, I connected it with my asus router and it has been working fine since today! when I woke up I turned on my lap top and loged in skype, but I couldnt open google, then I tried yahoo..nothing! I havent made and changes yesterday! I dont know what is wrong! I am new to ubuntu and I dont know what to do! when I connect directly to modem I have internet it works good, but when I connect through my (LAN or Wireless) router I cant view web pages. I have tried to google for the answer but all the answers are for windows OS versions! I tried to restart lap top, and the router 100 times but nothing!
can't access internet. The up and down icon appears by the network connection (upper right hand corner). When I review connection properties, I see that the computer has a valid address, subnet, gatway, dns, etc... But it still can't connect to the internet. I can't ping external addresses either. But I can access internal addresses (local router).
I can connect to my school's wireless network using the standard network manager, but often (not always) it repeatedly disconnects and reconnects every few minutes. Occasionally it also prompts me for the security information again (even after it previously connected successfully).
By running iwconfig when it's on the fritz, I can see that it's often switching access points for the network - which is what I think is causing the problem. It disconnects and reconnects even when the signal strength for the current AP is fine, and it will often switch to an AP with a weaker signal strength.
I installed the driver for my network card. iwconfig and ifconfig are all responsive to connecting to the network, I'm given an access point address. Then, I try to connect to a website and no dice. ping www.google.com yields no result. What gives?
Somehow in the last couple of days, my adobe acrobat reader quit working online. I can read pdf files on my computer, but if try to access one through my google browser, I get a blank page. What can I do to fix? I tried downloading the most recent update of adobe but when I went to run the program I get an error message indicating there is no program to open the update file.
I am wanting to turn an old desktop to a small file server, just the usual movies, music, pictures, etc. I want to be able to access this not only on my home network I want to be able to access it online so there is a way to get to my files remotely if needed. I was wondering if ubuntu server is what I must use or would the desktop edition do the trick?
I am interested in making wget do a slightly different function for me. I have downloaded it, built it (1.12) and it works perfectly right out of the box. would like to have it login to my creditcards.citi.com https website, give my user id, my password and "select NEXT-SCREEN label=Account Activity", then capture the account activity that returns.
I got these three values in my firefox Selenium script that runs perfectly time after time. My big picture goal, is to be able, on a crontab, to dump my account activity every night at midnight. I am not married to this idea if anyone has a better or different route.
Hi. I purchased a book that comes with access to an online archive of images, and I want to download all of them. The website is only set up to download the images one at a time, though, so I want to use a program to automatically download them. [URL]..I tried the command:
Code: curl -u username -O http://www.taschen.com/media_archives/type1/downloads/_Q6Q5783.jpg.zip but it downloaded the following text file: Code: Found The document has moved here.
my server is still running on 10.3 and I want to upgrade it to 11.3. I can't access it physically so it has to be an online upgrade. I have already learned that it is possible to upgrade from 11.x to 11.3 using Zypper from this nice german tutorial (Upgrade). But does it also work from 10.3? Should I upgrade all at once or every single version for itself?
I am using MTS datacard. I have usb_modeswitch installed and have configured the wvdial.conf file. When I do sudo wvdial cdma, the IPs and DNS addresses are also allocated but I still cant access internet. The reply to dmesg | grep -e 'tty' -e 'modem' is:
I've found the office equivalent to MS office that I was currently using and have acclimated myself to those programs. Now, I'm looking for the closest equivalent to Microsoft money where I can access my on-line account and download the transactions as I have been doing with Microsoft Money. I've recently downloaded kmymoney, but I don't know how to set up the on-line account download.
At some point, the install process asks whether to test internet access. I replied Yes, and the test failed. Retries also failed, leading me to conclude, mistakenly, that the ethernet card was not supported by SuSE 11.2. Finally I elected to skip the test, resigned to the loss of internet access. The install program then proceeded to access online repositories without difficulty, and I had no further difficulty accessing the internet. So why the misleading test result?
I have Virtualbox installed from the Ubuntu repository. As I just found out, I can't access any USB connected devices (printer, scanner). It seems I can get these USB peripherals to work by using a different Virtualbox repository. how to do this without loosing the OS installation that I have already setup in Virtualbox?
I have proftpd setup on my Aspire Revo (which I'm using as an HTPC) so that I can download files to my mac when I feel like watching in bed or whatever. I recently purchased a 1TB WD Elements to store my media. I have proftpd setup so that I can access every file on the computer. However, when I try to gain access to the Elements HD, I get an FTP error from Cyberduck that says:
/media/Elements: no such file or directory
Note that I have not formatted the drive or anything - just set it up straight out of the box. My media is loaded on to it, and XBMC reads the files fine. Is there a way I can enable the hard drive (or the OS) to share these files over FTP, or is this not possible?
i have setup Open VPN on Ubuntu 9.04, generated the key and have it running successfully on the server end. I download the open vpn client for windows, copied over the key ca and cert file and connected to the erver. All went well and the open vpn gui said its connected to the server (green comp icon in taskbar) and it said in a ballon it assigned me an ip of 10.8.0.6 it all looks good... BUT i have no vpn access... The virtual adapted in windows is not able to pull an actual IP/gateway and such...
I dug up an old pentium 3 computer to play with. I have it connected to my laptop with an ethernet cable. Now, how do I access the files, install new OS, etc, etc? If it helps any, I think it runs windows 2000 and I'm on opensuse 11.3.
