Ubuntu Networking :: Icon Shows Every Time Successful Connection But Really Don't Have It
Jun 20, 2010
i use Huawei usb modem as default connection device , Why i have to connect and disconnect my usb many times to work properly? when i start my PC i have to connect and disconnect the usb about 5 or 6 times to get a connection to the Internet, the icon above shows that every time i get a successful connection but really i don't have it. i have to do it many times to get the connection actually established and the Internet truly works
I have just installed ubuntu 10 on a thinkpad t410. At first everything worked swimmingly, INCLUDING the wireless. After about five minutes, the wireless stopped working, in that it seemed to think it was still connected but pinging didn't work. I've now restarted several times, and each time I restart, the wireless works for about 1 minute, then stops working. If I try to disconnect and reconnect it will not reconnect (until I restart, that is).
iwconfig shows the correct ESSID and ifconfig shows an address, and "connection information" shows a varying percentage of connection.
3 computers in the house run various windows based programs and everything is fine with them connecting to the internet as far as putting in the security password to log in and get online.My old back up computer that I use in the basement that has Ubuntu 9.10 was working fine with the secured network situation up until today.I booted up the computer this morning and it automatically connected as it typically does and I was reading some email and then the computer froze, which on rare occasions it does.
Upon reboot I got a window that asked for the password for the Network Manager Applet which I supplied and then it asked for the password for the secured internet connection which I supplied.It would not connect. After numerous tries of disabling the wireless and enabling the wireless and entering the Network Manager Applet password and the secured internet password I still get no connection.
I notice that when it is trying to connect, the window comes up on the screen that shows that there is reception from the modem, but there is also a little "lock" icon like I'm locked out of the connection.I finally found a way to get rid of the Network Manager Applet password problem but that still didn't alleviate the connection problem.
In the right upper corner of your screen,you can see if you have a network connection or not.Most of the time I do not have one according to Networkmanager (?).So I have to enable my wired connection manually.I already tried a lot to change my settings so I would have a network connection at boot,but it doesn't seem to work....Firefox is in Offline modus when I logon..
When I have video running and the video stops, I see that the connection is destroyed in about 5 seconds, which is what I want. If, rather than stopping the video, I pull the plug, I have seen it take 350 and 380 seconds before the connection is destroyed. Why is there such a large difference in the time to destroy a video connection between stopping the video and pulling the plug on it when using net filter connection tracking? How can I shorten the time for the connection to get destroyed when pulling the plug?
I just installed Ubuntu on my windows pc with no problems....except for wireless that is. I have a USB Linksys WUSB54G adapter to access my 2WIRE, WEP network. The thing is, it shows up in the top right hand corner. It even gives me the signal strength. But when it comes to using Mozilla, it is never able to access a page. If I try to Ping something, it's unable to. So I thought maybe I need to use ndiswrapper with my .inf and .sys files from the driver for my windows. I installed it, and added the driver to it...everything went O.K. I check it and it says it's installed and working. Again, I can see the wireless networks, and "connect" but when I try to use the connection there is nothing. I have also tried my neighbours non-WEP connection, but it still doesn't work. So I'm sort of at a loss with what I should do now. I see the networks, can "connect" but can't browse. I installed the drivers from my windows, and it still doesn't work. I used a LIVE CD of Knoppix and I can connect to the Network within 30 seconds and start browsing the net.
We are running a combination of Apache-2 with mod_jk connecting to tomcat workers running on separate hardware.Strange: "netstat -tn" on the Apache server outputs identical combinations of source address, source port, destination address and destination port.
Has anybody else experienced this phenomenon? (I googled and searched LQ but couldn't find anybody else reporting this)Is netstat broken, or is there another explanation?
I'm a complete beginner who just installed 10.04. I'm trying to follow guides to setup my internet connection, but I am completely unable to locate the Network Manager Icon. I have the notification area already, but there is no icon. I tried the instructions here After inputting nm-applet --sm-disable It gave me: ** (nm-applet:1722): WARNING **: <WARN> constructor(): Couldn't initialize the D-Bus manager.
everything was excellent till yesterday evening but from the evening, when i switched on my pc, the Network Connections icon is missing from the panel of my fedora 12 os. i'm being able to connect to internet from Systems->Preferences->Network connections & check Connect Automatically to my Mobile broadband connection. but i'm not being able to disconnect it. i've to remove the mobile phone from my pc.please put some light on how will I be able to disconnect it (without removing the phone)?
I'm using Filezilla to connect to a remote server with site 2 site VPN. Even when i'm sending a small file with SFTP, the connection time outs and reconnects. Its happening again and again. Even SCP connection is also the same. BUT SSH CONNECTION IS WORKING FINE.

I recently installed fedora 15 on my computer but I have a huge problem. I can connect to my router wirelessly for a couple of minutes only. Afterwards my computer has no Internet connection although the network manager and the icon on the upper bar says that i am still connected. I tried editing the /etc/rc.local and /etc/resolv.conf as mentioned in other posts in here bit no luck so far.

Well I'll start off with the recent changes I've made. I have three hard drives in my PC, two of which are formated NTFS. I recently installed Storage Device Manager and changed a few options around so they auto-mount of start up. Well when I did this, and wanted to delete files off those drives, I suddenly was being promoted that I must delete them permanently or not all at (wouldn't go into the trash)
I added the lines to FSTAB: uid=1000,gid=1000 0 1
So for example my secondary drive is:
And also added .Trash-1000 folders in each of the two NTFS drives.
When I delete items off one of the two NTFS disks they go to the trash... I don't get the "delete forever" prompt and I can actually see them in the trash bin.
But when I empty the trash the icon remains that of the "full" trash, despite when I open it there being no trash in it.
I had my MacBook configured with a triple boot (Windows 7, Mac OSX and Ubuntu 10.04). Everything was working perfectly until I decided to upgrade to Ubuntu 10.10 and screwed everything up haha.
I formated the Ubuntu partition and installed 10.10 on it, but I made the mistake of not selecting the correct place for the boot loader. I went the non confusing way and decided to format the Ubuntu and Windows 7 partition to start all over again.
The problem si this, for some reason rEFIT shows a Linux partition when there isn't any, I just have my HD partitioned like this:
This is what rEFIT shows:
The partitions are empty, I haven't installed any OS yet.
Do you know how can I delete that extra Linux icon?
I've been trying to use gnome-schedule to create a scheduled task that would dial my pppoe connection automatically. For this I used "sudo pon" command (after configuring the pppoe connection using pppoeconf ). Although the command gets executed, but then it waits for me to enter the password. I want it to be automatic & shouldn't require me/anyone to authorize it. Is there a way to enter this password automatically for the scheduled tasks?
Also, I'd like to use network manager, instead of pppoeconf, for the same purpose. How can I set network manager to dial a pppoe connection at scheduled time?
I am using docky on Ubuntu. I want to have a launcher for intellij in my docky bar, but I have an issue.No matter which method for adding the launcher to the dock I use, the intellij icon specified in my .desktop won't display. Instead I get the lame spring board launcher icon. Once I launch intellij it creates another icon on docky. So now I have intellij's correct icon and the spring board launcher icon. Once I close intellij we are back to just the spring board again.Does anyone have any idea what is going on here?I shouldalso note that "idea" launches a shell script if that mattersDesktop file

I could not find an answer to this. I can connect to the internet no problem after I edit the connection name to NETGEAR instead of our last name. After a while it looks like it renews the connection and created a new one with the wrong name. The connection drops. It looks to me it is not using the same wireless connection each time but creating new ones that do not work for the above mentioned reason. What can I do to stop the loop and have it use the same connection always?
This is not exactly Ubuntu question but i don't know where else to ask. I'm trying to setup a Wireless Linux router. My ISP provides multicast IPTV. I've got the whole thing setup'ed with igmpproxy and hostpad. On wired connection IPTV works flawlessly, but on wireless connection IPTV glitches badly and router start to time out. My wireless card is DWA-552 I'm using ath9k driver. More info in my post on LinuxQuestions.org Did anyone tried to setup Wireless Router with IPTV?
Since the upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze on my Notebook Toshiba Satellite Pro U200 with Intel Pro/Wireless 3945 ABG I have wireless connection problems.The connection breaks time to time and sometimes cannot connect automaticaly after restart. BTW I didn't change anything on the wireless or network configurations on the notebook and on the wiereless router.
What does it mean if you boot from a live CD, the CD spins, a screen appears with the keyboard and human icons at the bottom, then a blank screen appears with a blinking cursor in the upper left corner - and that's it? It just stays that way.
I've tried two different discs, one 10.04 and one 10.10; and two different disc drives.
I've just installed OpenSUSE 11.2 on a new machine. Because I was still using another machine as my main box while building the new one, the monitor attached when it was installed has a resolution of 1280x1024 @ 77Hz. I've now moved it to be my main machine and the monitor is a widescreen 1680x1050 @ 60Hz model. When I boot it normally the screen fails to come up - even GDM doesn't show. If I boot in failsafe mode the system comes up fine, but in 1280x1024 mode. The 'Configure display settings' icon shows the monitor as 'Unknown'. Couple of things I tried:
1) Switched to runlevel 2 and logged in as root. Ran Xorg -configure and looked at the xorg.conf.new that was installed, but it just had generic info for the monitor:
2) While still in runlevel 2 and logged in as root I did a startx. This brought up the X display in 1680x1050 ok, and clicking on the 'Configure display settings' icon showed it had correctly identified my monitor and had set the size and frequency correctly.
3) Given the results of (2), I then tried logging in as myself in runlevel 2, did startx again, but this time the display failed to come up again.
