Ubuntu Networking :: How To Setup Lan And WifiJan 29, 2011
setting up the lan and wifi settings
setting up the lan and wifi settings
I just installed ubuntu server 10.04. I want to connect to my wireless router(192.168.123.254). My router normally has wpa but I turned off encryption until I can get the server working. my router has MAC flitering which it has my servers MAC address and the dhcp server on my router is configured to assigned an ip address of 192.168.123.123 to my server.
On the server I do see wlan0 when I do sudo ifconfig -a. HOw do I setup the rest? I 'm very new with command line and linux so please bear with me.
I've got an Ubuntu box set up as a router and wifi hotspot. I can access the internet and any website using this box. I can connect a laptop to my wifi access point, and connect to both the router box and the internet. I'm writing this message from it. If I access either hsbc Hong Kong internet banking or speedtest.net from my laptop I can't connect. Every other site I've tried is fine. What could be causing this? I don't know where to start. I've set up the firewall rules and routing tables, so I vaguely know what I'm doing... but clearly not enough to debug this issue.View 3 Replies View Related
I just got a new desktop (the client) and hooked my "old" computer (the server) up to it with a crossover cable & NFS while I set up the new system.Unfortunately, while nfsd is running firefox cannot access the internet through ath0 -- the wifi card (NFS/rpc is on the ethernet card). Do I have to set up a proxy server (eg. squid) or is there a simpler solution?I don't need direct access to the net on the client. I just want to be able to use the wifi's IP in the server while it has a NFS client on eth0, so that firefox can work online.View 2 Replies View Related
I have installed and un-installed 3 different versions of Ubuntu. My fourth is a re-install of v9.10. During all these installs I have had difficulty getting my wifi to work. During my last install I left the ISO in the drive by mistake so when the system rebooted it loaded from the disc in demo.... This was interesting because in the demo the program manager showed 2 drives for wireless, 1 Broadcom STA and 2 Broadcom b43xx. I tried loading the STA and it worked! (sorry it could have been the b43xx, for the time being it's insignificant) Upon my excitement I restarted the computer and removed the disk went to my Ubuntu set up and ...what the Broadcom choices weren't there Why?
Now I am running Win 7 Home 32bit on my main drive and have Ubuntu loaded on its own drive. I have a Netgear WN311b wireless N card installed. Again my confusion is why it worked in demo (off the cd) but doesn't from full install. I read on the web to try inserting my supplied disc from Netgear and then search program manager. It now showed the two for-mentioned Broadcom programs, but this time wouldn't install them. On the b43 I got an error message and on the STA it searched extracting and loading this continued for a 1/2 hour with no progression. I couldn't close the PM or the extracting and loading box, so I had to restart the computer.

I got two issues with my wifi usb adapter:
1) it cannot see any networks around
2) i cannot setup it in master mode to use my PC as a router
As far as i can see, the device is recognized and the correct driver (rt73usb) is loaded. I was able to connect to a laptop somehow (the laptop could see other networks and the adapter's PC-to-PC network). I'd like to make it work as a router, i.e. share my internet connection (eth0) via wlan0. Here is what i have:
Linux 2.6.32-22-generic #36-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 3 19:31:57 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I've had 8.04 for almost a year & a half now, but the one thing that seems to confuse me after getting the rest of ubuntu is how to get wifi working. Before you say "read XXX FAQ, wiki, page", etc, I've read so many and despite understanding every normal thing about ubuntu, and all the customization I have, I haven't seen a single, up-to-date guide for making sense of wifi.
Here's what I know:
My wireless card is Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection (rev 05), supported in linux only by using a windows driver, ipw2200, which I do have running and installed somehow.
shogun@Valhalla:~$ sudo lsmod | grep ipw2200
[sudo] password for shogun:
ipw2200 146248 0
ieee80211 35528 1 ipw2200
I also realized I needed ndiswrapper, so I installed that. Beyond this, I'll just admit it- I'm very confused. I have always had a working connection over ethernet cable plugged in, but I really need wireless lately, and found an old Netgear WGR614v7 G band wireless rounter in my basement, hooked it up, and have a wired connection from it right now.
So how do I set-up/get my wireless working with all this thus far? How do I set up the router's network through Ubuntu as well, so I can create a named network to connect to? I'm reading every guide I can, and am just coming up more confused.
I am dual booting with windows xp on a dell computer I recently acquired. I am running Ubuntu 10.10. The computer didn't have a wireless connection so I installed a wireless pci adapter from a company called ZONET. I installed it perfectly on windows xp, however, I cannot install the driver and the "Ralink Wireless LAN" on Ubuntu. I inserted the cd, and opened the setup.exe file with Wine Windows Program Loader (I have installed Wine 1.3 by following the instructions on http://www.winehq.org/download/deb and clicking on the link that says "click here".
I am currently temporarily connected to the internet by borrowing my main computers ethernet cable). I followed the instructions on the InstallShield Wizard only to have two windows pop up saying there is an error (see attached image).
I have only had a few weeks worth of experience with linux, so I'm probably considered a newbie at this but I felt like giving it a shot. I just configured my new Toshiba Satellite A505-S6969 to jaunty. Most of the transition is going well but I'm stuck with a few issues, one of which is getting my wifi to work. Right now I'm working off of an ethernet cable.spci returns

My laptop has an internal wireless device and a button to turn it on/off, but since it has bad reception I use an external USB wireless adapter.The problem is that if I turn the internal wireless device off using the button, it also turns the USB wireless adapter off.Is there anyway to use the killswitch (the button) only for the internal wireless device?This only started to happen in Ubuntu 10.04.View 7 Replies View Related

I have a pc which has 2 network cards, 1 wifi and 1 ethernet card.
I'm using wifi card to connect to wifi network (internet) and i'm planing to share this wifi/internet connection via ethernet to wireless router (siemens sx763) so i can have internet on my other devices, e.g. mobile phone, laptop.
I am running (K)Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 64bit on a Dell Latitude E6400, WiFi Card Intel 5100. Never had any problems with networking. Up to about 2 weeks ago. I do realize there have been quite a few posts with this network adaptor, but non really described the problem I have here.
What happens is that suddenly the WiFi LED on the computer stops blinking, the WiFi connection gets disrupted, and the device is not recognized anymore when checking ifconfig. Only cold restarting the machine helps then... it will work for a while (between 1 and 20 minutes) and then crash again.
On Windows 7 the card works perfectly fine. With Ubuntu 11.04 in Live CD mode I have the same effects (connection crashes after a while). Also tried booting an older kernel, no success.
My exact hardware:
I notived the following problems in /var/log/kern.log
I have 2 connections, wlan and wired, and I'd want to have a few websites (in my browser) to connect through the wireless connection while other go through the wired rj45 connection. s it possible? (without unplugging the rj45 cable...)View 2 Replies View Related
the only error message I can find comes from "dmesg|tail"all it shows is
"no IPv6 router"any body know what is going on here or where where to look for more clues the next time I get around public wifi Oh the windoze washers and apple polishers don't seem to have any problems at all
I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 (kernel version 2.6.38) on my Pandaboard. When I run iwconfig, wlan0 shows up but the wireless is disabled. I am not able to start it up. I have not installed any patches or anything. Either upgrade kernel to 2.6.39+ or patch the existing drivers.View 2 Replies View Related
I have an old PowerBook G4 that I would like to use as a 'dummy' computer for learning wireless penetration (WEP/WPA attacks) more effectively. I had been using a wireless router, but I gave it away I can use Mac OS X to share an ethernet connection over wifi, but this is _very_ un-configurable. You get two options only, WEP and a key-length. So, I would like to install someway to make this wireless connection more configurable.View 2 Replies View Related

I have just completed the installation of 11.2 on a older HP Pavillon dv5115nr. Finally got everything working except for the Broadcom wireless. I have updated the firmware and I can see the AP. I have been using yast to configure the wlan device but one of the last steps it trys to perform is install smpppd. Even when hooked up via eth0 it can't find this program.View 1 Replies View Related
I installed the base of Debian (only CD 1) without the desktop environment, so it is console only; also I am dual booting with Windows 7 x64 on this Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop... I have also successfully mounted my usb flash drive and CD drive; the one thing I am finding rather hectic is finding a way to connect to my wireless network with a "WPA2 Personal" Security and "TKIP/AES" Encryption with a Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card... I doubt that the drivers are actually installed, and Idk how to install them.Google searches on this yield confusing results, so I need help. So far, the most useful help I have found is the link posted here: http://en.community.dell.com/support-fo ... 29916.aspx but I have no idea on how to install that, if it is even what I need.View 5 Replies View Related
If I understand correctly Ubuntu does not allow a wifi connection until a user loges in. That makes it so that prey (see preyproject.com) cannot send notices until someone has logged onto Ubuntu.what I would like to do (but I have no clue how) is to set up a user account that automatically, in the background, logs on at start up. Then this little user login would establish any Internet connection that is possible (wifi or lan) and start the program 'prey'. This should all be totally transparent to the user that would just see the regular log in screen.View 4 Replies View Related

Im trying to setup multiple domU through the default bridge setup. I am able to access only one of them through the network at a time. If you ping one of the domU it works perfectly but you cannot ping any of the others until you stop pinging the one and even then it takes a bit before you can. Ive looked around for a while and seen similar problems but nothing ever seems quite the same. Im probably missing something really stupid. Or is this the way the bridge is supposed to behave? Do i need to use a routed virtual network?
Wifi seems to disconnect fairly requently, sometimes reconnecting automatically and sometimes requiring me to re-enter the wep password.
I would like to make it so it stays connected.
The router is not very close, but I think it's close enough. I even moved it closer. Other devices (such as my N900 mobile phone) hold the connection without issue.
One complication is that there are several devices all with the same SSID, though there should be one which is clearly stonger.
1 ) Machine Brand and Model (PC/Laptop):
2 ) Wireless Brand, Model and Wireless Chipset:
3 ) check interface:
4 ) Check for modules:
5 ) Kernel boot messages
Just got Linux ubuntu 10.10 last week installed it and looks pretty nice. I was having problems with the wifi cutting in and out with my windows xp laptop. Wasn't sure why. I am connected via ad-hoc connection. I re-checked all the numbers and everything is ok there. Downloaded all the updates for via ubuntu update manager and it says I have Ubuntu 11.01, Don't know why that is? I have an Acer Aspire model 3680 computer. Anything I need to look for or check in the future to fix the wifi problem?View 6 Replies View Related
I just purchased an AirLink101 AR670W wireless router and it works just fine, states on the box that it works for all Microsoft Windows, Mac and Linux, but cannot get the CD to work, it comes up with a box that states cannot find the path in Archive manager. Without this cd I cannot use the software to put on WPS wifi protected set up, or the Nat+Spi firewall.I checked the manufacturers website and all it states is how tose the software in MS Windows. I have the latest version of Ubuntu which I think is 11.04View 3 Replies View Related
Having played around with ubuntu a fair bit I decided to breathe life into an old thinkpad with a pcmcia wireless card, by following the minimal install instructions and using lxde window manager etc.. Everything works fine apart from the fact that I cannot connect wirelessly. The card picks up and lists connections but whenever I have clicked on a connection the dail spins and then it gives up.I installed network-manager and managed to get nm-applet appearing in the sysTray otherwise I would not even have known there was wireless connections there.
I was thinking there maybe some conflict with another network manager, does this sound likely?
I never had this problem with Ubuntu before and I am now confused. This is a clean install and I have not change anything about my AP so don't why this is happening.
Every 5min or so my wifi keeps disconnecting and sometimes have problems reconnecting. I also have Windows on this machine and it does not do this at all. My AP is set to channel 9(changing it makes no difference), WPA2. Logs below

when i go into additional drivers, only two drivers pop up, both for my wireless card. however, i can only use the first one because if i try to use them both it breaks my wifi, forcing me to reinstall the first driver. ordinarily, this wouldnt bother me because it works with just one, but i realized the other day that the reason it takes forever to do anything internet related is because im getting pathetic transfer speeds. the highest i can remember is only 800 kb/s. ive tried standing right next to the router and it makes no difference. i know its my drivers fault because i get the same speeds at two different home wifi networks (both houses roughly the same size). my ipod gets a better connection. the driver im using is a broadcom b43 proprietary driver. the one that breaks the working driver is a broadcom STA proprietary driver. i havent bothered to try the second without the first because i just didnt think about it, but i think i will soon and see if it makes any difference. does anyone have an idea as to why my driver sucks? im tired of waiting 20 minutes to watch a 3 minute ..... video.View 4 Replies View Related

I run ubuntu over network with pxe boot and I thought that maybe if I connect to my wifi and then disconnect the ethernet, the nfs connection will reconnect over the wifi.. but that didn't work. Anyone know how to make it work? seems like it should be simple.View 5 Replies View Related
