Ubuntu Networking :: Get Wireless To Connect Automatically On Next Boot W/out Re-configuration?

Jul 8, 2010

I configure the wireless connection. It works. I restart, and and doesn't automatically even though it asked my if I wanted to use the profile next boot and I said yes.. How do I get it to save? I tried several times.Maybe there's a terminal command? The computer is for a COMPLETE newb who only wants it to browse web, but they're not going to know how to connect every time even if I explain.

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 :: 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

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Intel 3945abg Wireless Network Card Cannot Connect To Router Automatically

Apr 8, 2010

I clicked "Network Settings", and I found that the ip address was wrong, which is "192.168.1.10/24", and netmask field is empty, so I modifed the configuration file located in /etc/sysconfig/network, named ifcfg-wlan0, added one line(NETMASK= '255.255.255.0'), saved it and reboot the system. After rebooting the system, I still found the ip address is wrong and netmask field is empty, so I have to use ifup command to activate my card manually every time the system starts.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Automatically Re-activate/connect Wireless When Laptop Opens?

Mar 28, 2010

I've got my Lenovo T60 laptop wireless running without too much trouble, the only problem is when i close my laptop lid and open it again the wirelessconnection is down and i simply cant click on the network icon in the notification area to re-connect as wlan0 is inactive. If i go to System>admin>network i cant activate the interface either as the 'active' button is greyed out, the only way to get the thing to come alive again (other than a full reboot) is to toggle the wireless switch on my laptop off and then back on.Not sure this should be required, i've got the interface configured to start automatically but it doesnt seem to care.

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 :: 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 :: 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?

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.

Debian Configuration :: Can't Connect To Hidden Wireless

Jul 9, 2010

Finally took the plunge and decided to give debian a go, not done so before as feared it would be too complicated. Net install went ok. Used to wiki to get me wireless up and running by copying those commands provided most of which made no sense (why the separate kernel image for wireless?).

Anyway seems to have worked so now to the problem I can't connect to my wireless network its not broadcasting so configured it manually the way I do in ubuntu through the net manager, it doesn't connect at all.

Debian Configuration :: Broadcom Wireless Will Not Connect

Jan 12, 2011

I am attempting to get my laptop wireless to connect to my router. Wicd sees my router, I enter the known good password, and it reports bad password. Configuring router without wireless security and attempting to connect with wicd without security fails also. Laptop wireless has worked with other another linux distro, and windows.

Environment:Squeeze installed to Dell laptop with wireless: Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)

Fedora Networking :: Both Cards Are Enabled And Set To Connect Automatically?

Nov 15, 2010

I just installed Fedora 13 on my desktop computer and ran into the same problems I did when I tried to install which was i could connect to a network but couldn't access the internet. I decided to install Fedora 14 since I already installed it on my laptop. I'm still running into the same issue, I can connect to my network but cannot connect to the internet using my PCI NIC or onboard NIC. Networking is enabled and I'm getting a IP address from my router. I ran "lspci" and it shows me both network cards which, please correct me if I'm wrong, makes me think that the drivers are installed.

I'm also curious if the VNC client/server could be used through a WAN. I would like to remote into my computer at home when I'm not there and see the gui. I had SSH installed at one point but it was just text. If there is better program please let me know. why I would have Services on my laptop but not on my desktop? Both computers are running the same version. Both cards are enabled and set to connect automatically. I can get a IP with both NICs. I only have one plugged in at a time.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired Connection - Can't Connect - Dhcp Enabled Automatically

Jun 20, 2010

Since that time I moved to Archlinux and I love it. I do however run lubuntu live from a USB for my work PC. I am having a problem with it. I think it's okay to post here because the core of the system is still Ubuntu. I don't think LXDE is the problem. I start up the live environment and it says 'wired connection connected' but I can not load any pages or do anything.

I thought it may be a problem with configuration so I copied down (from Windows) the IP, Subnet, Gateway and DNS. I put them in manually and it doesn't say connected any more and still no connection at all. I am unsure what to do from here. I am not really familiar with Ubuntu enough to try much. I tried to 'dhcpcd eth0' but dhcpcd isn't installed. I guess the default Ubuntu network manager has dhcp enabled automatically.
