Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting The Windows Desktop To The Internet Via Ubuntu Wireless Connection?
Mar 6, 2011
I have Ubuntu-laptop with wireless card wlan0 and wired ethernet card eth0 and windows7-desktop with wired ethernet card.I want my desktop PC to connect to the internet via ubuntu wireless card. Meaning that, I'm connected to a wireless internet network in my ubuntu pc and I want to share this connection to the desktop.
I just want to use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to connect to the internet. I have done a massive amount of troubleshooting, but some of it seems to contradict itself, and the only two things that I know for sure are that it used to work, and that my Ethernet cable is not the problem. When I use Terminal utilities like ifup and dhclient it seems that it can not determine IP information, but when I try to put it in manually, the "Apply" button grays out right after I finish typing it in. When I try to connect normally, in KDE or GNOME, the icon acts like it's connecting, then instead of having the connected icon, I receive a notification that "the network has been disconnected", and it goes back to the disconnected icon.
Oh, and by the way, I know that I could probably find a workaround, but I have limited resources, and this used to work. The Linux is a Dell desktop with Fedora 12 and the Windows is a Windows 7 HP laptop.EDIT: I hope that I didn't mess something up, but I accidentally used system-network-config to try putting in the IP address there, and ended up changing it back to the original settings, but the computer is now calling it Auto Ethernet in the taskbar icon, although sudo iwconfig in the terminal still calls it eth0.
I am running Ubuntu 10.10, and I would like to use my computer to share the internet connection from an ethernet port. For example, I would like to set up my computer as a wireless access point so I can create a network that other computers can connect to for internet.
i have a Levano S10e intel atom preccessor and the net-book is not connecting wirelessly to the network. i have tried at two locations and even plugged in a exterlal wifi adapter. it wouldnt connect then either, the only way to get connected is to use a cat5 cable. here is the ifconfig output with no cat5 inserted and it not connecting to the internet.:
I have 2 computers, one running Windows 7 (and connected to my router wirelessly) and another running the latest Ubuntu Server version and I am just wondering, since I've already got the windows machine to share the internet connection via their LAN connection, how would I get the Ubuntu to use it?
I have an old desktop computer that I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on. I also have a laptop with Windows 7 Pro which is connected wirelessly to the internet. The desktop does not have a wireless card and the modem is in another room. I have a spare ethernet cable, is it possible to connect the Ubuntu desktop to the internet by connecting it to the laptop with the cable? I'm not very good with computers.If this isn't possible, how would I go about connecting the desktop to the internet?
Its a case of ".... wireless network connection active but still not internet connection .."I am using WEP - 128 key ... Works when I connect directly using ethernet cable ... but not wireless (pci and wireless router)
I tried to setup sharing to connect Ethernet and wireless. I want Ethernet connected to desktop A, and wireless connected to another laptop(B), with my laptop acting as an AP. I set the network settings in Firestarter: Internet for wireless, local network for Ethernet. I want to share Internet from laptop B over the network. Internet won't work from my laptop since it seems to use the wrong interface.(Since the desktop is sharing Internet, although not on Internet usually when connected via Ethernet. And of course DNS/Gateway IPs aren't set for wlan0 since it's acting as an AP.) SMB wouldn't work for desktop A and laptop B: laptop B could detect desktop, but reports error "Path not found".
I'm connecting to my wireless, but I can't connect to the Internet, not even via an IP address.
(*) Can not open web pages via IP address. (*) Can ping internal hardware no problem. (*) I can connect to the Internet via Ethernet no problem. (*) I used to be able to connect via wireless on this computer. No settings changed in the interim. (*) Several other computers currently connected & accessing Internet via the same wireless - no problem. (*) Based on other posts, I disabled the avahi daemon, but this had no effect.
I have never seen this before but to connect to the internet either wired or wireless I have to connect to a broadband connection as well. I am currently using wireless; I connect to ISP with wireless but in order to access the internet I have connect to the wireless connection through my broadband connection(This is where I enter a user name and password.). I'm not sure why this is, I have always just plugged an Ethernet cable in and the computer just knew I guess.
I am using ubuntu-10.04-netbook-i386.iso that I had put onto a USB drive. It booted fine, but when I tried accessing the internet I couldn't. I was able to connect to the ISP, but I couldn't find any settings for a broadband connection. My computer is a Acer Aspire One Netbook 250
Intel Atom CPU N270 @ 1.60GHz 1.60 GHz 1.99 GB of RAM Network Adapters Atheros AR 5B95 Wireless Network Adapter Atheros AR8132 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller
I have a wireless router, but my desktop computer is connecting to it, or maybe to the modem, by an Ethernet cable. It has a built-in wireless card, so just as an experiment, I tried to connect to my network wirelessly. It didn't work. And not only did I not get any internet connection, I can't get any internet through the wired connection either. The internet works fine with Windows Vista (I'm dual-booting), as well as when I boot up Backtrack off of a Live DVD. I can still access my router's config page by going to 192.168.2.1 on a web browser, but I can't access anything else.
I am using UBUNTU 9.04 on a HP mini notebook. I pratically never had problem connecting wireless with my netbook, expecially with this connection at home. Until yesterday. There were some line problems, that have been solved after some hours. Then I was able again to connect.
I didnt do nothing on the netbook. After 2 hours, connection gone. Now, even if other laptops are wonderfully connected (to the same line), mine has a dramatically slow connection (in the sense that is able to open just the first page of google if I am lucky) or no connection at all (even if the signal looks good on the network panel.
I tryed the help for wireless troubleshooting, checked for device recognition. Putting in terminal sudo lshw -C network Says disabled. But the device of the wireless on my pc is on, and it's also enabled in its panel.
Just had an issue crop up where connecting wired network seems to stop wireless connections from getting an IP (happens on multiple networks both while the cable is plugged in and once it's been unplugged; also persists across reboots). Machine is a Dell Latitude 2120n with UnionFS running. Connection was working fine prior to the wired connection
I have an iBook G4 running Debian Lenny. I was wondering, is there anyway to connect to the internet while on a Windows network at school over Ethernet using smbclient? I have both GNOME 2.22 and LXDE .5 on the machine.
This morning my Karmic desktop stopped connecting to the internet (Firefox & Evolution). Network is all ok and other machines can connect fine - in fact I am typing this from a Windows 7 virtualbox running on the offending machine. Investigation shows that this is definitely a DNS problem as I can connect to sites / mailservers by using the ip address. Have tried several reboots which did not help. PowerDNS is installed. When I restart it the ff output is send to syslog:
I tried to install Xubuntu 10.10 Maverick as dual boot on my laptop. However when xubuntu is on, I can't find a way to connect to internet. When I try the 2 arrows on the up-right corner the option for wireless is deemed. I tried offline/online, that did not work either. when I click the firefox It says you are not connected.
I have a created a wireless connection from the main admin account and checked the box saying "Available to all users", everything is working correctly. I only need to prevent the Desktop Users from switching the connection to another one.
After spending several months coming up with ideas (and ultimately failing), I have found the easiest and simplest way to connect your Ubuntu desktop (or laptop w/o a wireless adapter/card) to the Internet using only a Linksys Wireless Range Expander and an Ethernet cord.
YOU WILL NEED: Linksys Wireless Range Expander (WRE54G) Ethernet cable
Linksys wireless router (that is providing your home/office with wireless Internet) The WRE54G can be purchased online through various websites, including eBay. They run anywhere between $10 and $40, but it's going to be cheaper than a USB Wireless Adapter (and no software needs to be installed, making it universal for most Linux distros).
I have two linux laptops. Currently, I'm using both of them at work, side-by-side. Now the problem is, I'm connected to a wireless router, but the wireless only works on one of the laptops. So I'm stuck with one laptop that has no access to the internet. Both machines do, however, have working ethernet nic cards. So, I was wondering if I could use the laptop with the wireless connection to share the internet connection with my other linux machine and access the internet on both of them. Or as an alternative, just use the internet on the machine without wireless and be able to switch back and forth, that would increase my productivity like 30 fold.
I'm using 10.04 I tried to connect to a free WiFi connection. I had the password for it too. I had been able to access the connection 2 weeks ago with no real trouble. Now, the thing at the top of my screen indicates I'm connected BUT I can't get Firefox to access any sites. I can't download email using Thunderbird. Pretty strange isn't it?
Finally I thought I solved my problem with the help of Dmizer. My networkcard wasn't functioning correctly due to the hardware switch on my laptop. For more information about this check this thread: [URL]
Now I have a new problem, probably caused by the problem above. I have a connection (so the network manager says) but no internet. I checked the network settings by using the ifconfig command in a terminal. This tells me that I have an address of 10.43.42.2 (or similar) which should be something like this 192.168.x.x.
I had already tried to use a command like "ifconfig release" but this didn't work. I know too much windows like but i had to try something. I also had the connection properties checked and changed to my network settings. After i did this I had still the same address (10.43.42.2 or similar).
Unless someone knows what is going on I'd like to know how to refresh of renew my IP address from the DHCP server.
Some information about my hardware and drivers:
NIC vendor: Atheros Communications Inc. NIC chipset: AR2413 (i guess, i do not have my laptop with me at the time of writing) Old driver: ath5k New driver: ath_pci (installed from madwifi)
I have no wireless internet on my 11.04. I can access my wired connection but my wireless doesn't show connections and isnt able to connect to any wireless network in the neighbourhood. (I had this probz too in 9.10 and 10.04) But none of the solutions work now. I already tried to blacklist the blacklist at76c50x_usb

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..
I'm using a WUSB54GC network adapter to connect to my home wireless network. My network was not visible, so I added it and it shows connected, but when I launch the browser, I can't get a connection. I'm using Ubuntu 10.4. All other computers on the network connect fine and I disabled my firewall to see if that made a difference.
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 have an old Compaq Presario v2000 that recently had Ubuntu 10.04 installed on it. The wired internet worked when it was installed, but the wireless didn't. I tried to download the drivers for it and it failed everytime. I did an update thinking that the update might fix the wireless, but it didn't, it actually made my wired connection stop working. So now I have a newly installed OS on the laptop, and I can't do anything on it because there is no way to get any internet.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 . Need to get my wireless router working on my HP laptop. Have been using a Linksys WRT54G Router with windows and it is working properly. Tried setting up in NetworkManager but it does not work.
When looking at things in the Ubuntu terminal it says the network is DISABLED.
I had been happily using a wireless connection for about two weeks. The connection then went down for a few days. Since it came back up, I can connect to the network, but cannot access the internet. Other users of the network can both connect to the network, and access the internet, though people have experienced the same problem as me the last time the network went down (they could connect to the network but not access the internet). I have tried deleting and re-starting the connection, to no avail. I have looked around the forums, but haven't found anything that can help: do any of you have any suggestions? I am malarial and at the end of tether.It is not a problem with Ipv6, which is set to ignore, as it was in the past when the connection workedI am running Ubuntu 10.10 on an X61 Thinkpad. Below is the output of iwconfig, route -n, lspci, and what happens when I ping other network
Iwconfig: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1d:72:9e:09:8f UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
