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.
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.
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.
How do I setup Wifi on my labtop. When I run linux live cd on my desktop which is connected to my router, linux's pickup ethernet connection and connects fine to the internet. but on my labtop which is wireless to my router linux will not see my wireless connection. How do I configure linux to connect through wifi.
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:

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.
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.
Installed ubuntu 9.10 dual boot with win7 yesterday. Everything working but Wifi. Wifi works fine with Win7. No Wifi in Ubuntu. Very confused. I have info from the wifi trouble ticket post.There does not seem to be a driver for this card anywhere.

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...)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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?
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 11.04
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
Code: [ 15.668746] alloc irq_desc for 33 on node -1 [ 15.668748] alloc kstat_irqs on node -1 [ 15.668768] iwlagn 0000:02:00.0: irq 33 for MSI/MSI-X [ 15.696615] alloc irq_desc for 22 on node -1
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.
I just upgraded to 11.04 just this morning and I tried to get on the internet. Under the networking thing there is only wired connections. How do I fix this. I have a dell vostro 1000 with a Dell 1390 WLAN mini-card.
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.
I have tried installing the original CD os 8.04 (Dell system restore) again hoping that everything was on there in order to get me connected to wifi again. Connecting to wifi seems to be the main issue that people have trouble with.I feel that I have 3 options now:
1. Sell the laptop (it is a month old!) 2. Pay for support 3. Put windows on it
I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 this weekend and it worked great. But yesterday night i flipped on my laptop and could not get on to wifi. When i right click there is no Enable wireless option. It is as if Ubuntu doesn't even know that i have wireless. Why would it stop working after a few days?
Either way I am at a complete loss at where to begin fixing this. I would be willing to do a new install but the live CD has the same problem now however it didn't the first time i instaled it:confuse d:. When i boot into my vista partition it works fine so it isn't a hardware problem.
I have Ubuntu 10.04 on my EeePC 1000H. I don't use this computer often but it has always worked before... I suspect an update did this to me. I've recently swapped wireless routers but all my other machines have been able to connect to the new router. I can see the SSID and the signal strength is high but when I try to connect to it, it just attempts for a long time then asks me for my password again. I am currently connected to wired network.
I installed 11.04 from disc for a clean install on my dual boot vsta/ubuntu desktop.I was so frustrated that i had no wifi in 11.04 that i got out my 10.04 disk and triple booted that into the mix.Still no wifi (axcept in Vista) however if i unplug my usb wifi device and replug it in while in10.04 i will get the 'connection established' info box yet when i try to open Firefox i get the 'no internet connection or check firewall setting' drop down box.My wifi was working in 10.04 previous to 11.04 install.Note the unplug/replug usb does not work at all in 11.04.Also its strange that my wifi icon in 10.04 went from the bar graph style to the radiating arch style since the reinstall,even though i used the same install disc as pre 11.04
