Ubuntu Networking :: Improve The Old Wireless Setup?

Feb 7, 2010

I've got Ubuntu 9.10 running on an old thinkpad with an 800 mhz cpu. It's running wifi through a g rated card and a g rated router. The internet is very slow. I'm thinking of upgrading to an n rated card and router. Or, is the system just too old and nothing is going to help with internet speeds?

General :: Improve Wireless Connectivity On MacBook Running Ubuntu?

Jul 22, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu on my MacBook and it's great. The only problem is the Internet speed... on Mac OS X it is much faster which doesn't surprise me because both have been optimized to run fast.

I was wondering if there was a driver, or similar, that would improve the speed for Ubuntu?

Ubuntu Networking :: Best Wireless Setup For 10.04

Aug 2, 2010

I recently bought the D-Link DIR-655 and DWA-140 wireless setup just before converting completely to Linux from windows. I'm sure there are issues with the ralink rt2870 chipset. I did get this to work after a few days of trying various things, but I could not get Wireless N to work, it only operates in G mode. This seems to have something to do with needing to use AES for N-mode. My wireless setup will only work with Ubuntu if I have TKIP set. This of course requires my entire network to work at G speeds. Consequently I am returning my D-Link setup tomorrow, and am looking for the community opinion on what Router/adapter setup is truly out-of-the-box compatible with Ubuntu 10.04. This Router will need to be compatible with other windows based computers on the network running the DWA-140 USB adapters. (I have no PCI slots available).

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Setup Wireless Internet

Feb 1, 2010

I just finished downloading the latest version of xubuntu on my dell insperon 1545. I went to set up the internet and i cannot figure out how. In the top right corner the connection icon has only one option that i can select, and thats configure the vpn settings i think. I installed it using dual booting next to windows 7, so i keep switching back and forth trying to look something up and go back to see if it will work. However, i think i should make the point that i've never worked with any linux type o.s. before.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Setup A Wireless Network

Jun 7, 2010

I want to setup a wireless network in my lab. Main reason is that I want to be able to print from every computer, but it would also be nice if we can share files. I have three 64 bit machines, a netbook and 32 bit notebook and my internet goes via an Wifi router to which other Windoooze machines connect. I want to change to Lucy now and hope it is easier to setup the network in clean manner.

Ubuntu Networking :: Getting Wireless Setup In Kubuntu

Nov 23, 2010

I am a new Linux user and Maverick Meerkat happens to be my first Linux system i installed. Setting up wireless was pretty easy in GNOME as it displayed my wireless system and i just entered the WEP key and i was all set.I decided to install KDE. After i installed KDE i wanted to setup internet There. However the KNetwork manager is not as friendly as Network Manager. It does detect my wireless router, but after i enter the WEP key it does not get connected.

It was asking me all sorts of question like SSID which i did not use in GNOME at all and neither do i know that information.I tried wcid network manager but removing network-manager and knetwork manager.wcid did get connected to my wireless but it was unable to acquire my IP address. (please do note that both k-network manager and wcid network manager work well with wired internet connection). Could you please help me setup internet in KDE? the truth is internet responds better in KDE than GNOME for my computer somehow.

Ubuntu Networking :: No Internet Access Via New Wireless Setup?

Feb 10, 2010

Running Ubuntu 9.10 Ive just got my wireless connection working after first having got the wired eth0 connection working.

With the wired connection I could SSH into my server through my firewall/router (via a forward). I can run up VNC, from there firefox, browse the web - all is well.

I have now setup the wireless connection, using a static IP, and I can likewise SSH into my server. I can run up VNC. I can ping my router. I can log onto it via VNC. I can browse to my router. But I cant browse the internet.

But I cant ping google.com. The reason is there is no host lookup service. Nslookup eventually says no servers could be reached.

So specifically, if I ping www.google.com Im told "unknown host". If I do an NSlookup on it I get timeout, no servers could be reached. However if I ping I get responses.

I see no relevant entries in my firewall log.

Unfortunately I cant traceroute because the package isnt found - and of course I cant install it because I have no internet !

Strangely (to me at least !) if I then tunnel through SSH and browse the web, I have no problems. It works ? I know I am browsing through my SSH tunnel because whatsmyip gives the IP of my router at home, not where Ive SSHd in from. I can surf just fine.

why I cant do host lookups any more (and this did work with my wired connection, but whether its related to my change to wireless, or static IPs or both I cant be sure - it certainly appeared to happen at the same time). And, more to the point, what I need to look for/do to rectify it ?

As a bonus Id be interested in why I can SSH and browse via tunnelling but not direct from my server (via VNC). Just for interests sake !

if config reports :

wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:90:4b:27:ae:17
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::290:4bff:fe27:ae17/64 Scope:Link

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Setup PPPOE Connection Over Wireless

Apr 22, 2010

My adsl modem is in bridge mode. I can connect to internet via pppoe . pppoeconf recognise the pppoe in eth0 and setup a connection and I can use it. How can I setup a pppoe connection using pppoeconf so that it uses wireless ? I set the wireless mode to bridge in modem settings. But, after that the access point stopped appearing in "aps in range" in network manager and I can't connect to it. pppoeconf also doesn't recognise wlan0 as a valid pppoe link . but dat is normal since i don't think it can check if wlan0 is pppoe without wlan0 being connected to the modem's wireless network. How can I connect to Internet with modem in bridge mode and connections via wireless interface of modem? Is pppoe over wireless even possible ? coz the datalink layer of wlan is not ethernet rite?

Ubuntu Networking :: VZ Wireless Modem Card Setup

I have had a vz modem card for some time now and it worked fine. However my employer upgraded from a PC5750 device to the new PC770 device. When I plug the old device (now deactivated) it shows and use to work fine. When I plug the new device in Ubuntu does not pick it up and show it in the networking options. I use to see it i n the upper right where I would select my wireless networks. I do get a green light on the card so I know its powered. So what do I need to do to get my Laptop to see the new card?

Networking :: Setup A Wireless ISP Using Iptables, Tc?

Mar 29, 2010

I'm working for a very poorly configured WISP currently using Traffic Inspector on windows(url).

Currently each client is manually given an IP address. I'd like to eventually change that, but for now I just want to migrate the server to linux.

I intend to use iptables to forward only those who's mac and ip match against my list:

# Davit
$IPTABLES -A INPUT -i $INTIF -m mac --mac-source 00:00:00:00:56:83 -s -j ACCEPT
I intend to mark the packets by ip address to limit them to their plan( there are two plans 256kbps and 128kbps)
# Mark packets to route

exit 0
Does this make any sense? My Major problem is that I don't know how to keep track of how much each client has downloaded. Any advice on how to do that?

Networking :: Wireless Setup In Slackware 13.1 64 Bit

Sep 16, 2010

I have tried to get my wireless network setup for 5 nights now, with the same results. Everything in my system automatically installs during the initial installation, except wireless, which I have run into in the past with older pc's. This install however (from 13.1 install dvd) seems to not cooperate properly with the rest of my computer. After installing wicd, I attempt to connect to the wireless network. Immediately after, wicd shows in the activity bar 'flushing dns' and syslog spews out two notifications at the lower right. That's it. From there it hangs and will not terminate cleanly. If I log out from there, I cannot get back into my x window system. Startx merely creates an Auth file and fails to load, saying that it's already active on 0. Then, if I run shutdown -r now, the system only goes as far as disconnecting remote drives and then hangs as well. I have to perform a hard boot at that point. The only thing that circumvents this, is to installpkg remove wicd. After wicd's removal, then I can shutdown -r now and reboot, reenter X and everything acts normal - until a wicd install. Any thoughts, suggestions, anything?

Please be aware, that I am not familiar with outputting data into a file like in the other posts I've seen here, so if you need the output, please include the commands necessary.

Ubuntu Networking :: What Are The First Basic Steps To Setup A Wireless Connection

Aug 7, 2010

I have a computer with both wire and wireless connections. Wired connection works fine, but I would also setup the wireless connection.(I also have a dual boot on this cumputer with WinXP where both wire and wireless connections works fine. So, wire and wireless configuration of the actual router is not an issue here.)

At this point I just want to know the main/overview basic steps of setting-up the wireless connection on the computer. Also if you could suggest any links to guidelines for these steps. I have been thinking about something simple like this, but I might have missed a lotInvestigate if Ubuntu finds the wifi-hardware - the installed wifi card.Investigate if Ubuntu have an installed driver for this wifi-card.Configure the Wireless Network connection, like SSID.Unplug wire connection and reboot.

Ubuntu Networking :: Setup A Brother MFC-J415w Wireless Printer In 64 Bit

Dec 26, 2010

As I have recently figured out, it is very hard to set-up a Brother MFC-J415w wireless printer on a 64 bit machine, so to save you from spending hours searching the Internet and trying different drivers, I will tell you how to set one up.

Step one: Download the 32-bit driver from this link: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com...html#MFC-J415W. When prompted, save the file.

Step two: Open the terminal and type in the following commands:


mkdir /usr/lib/cups


mkdir /usr/lib/cups/filter


mkdir /usr/share/cups/model

Depending on what you've tried before, some of these directories may already exist. Step three: Type the following commands:


sudo -s

Ubuntu Networking :: Setup A Wireless Or Wired Network To Share Connection

Feb 25, 2010

I'm trying to set up a wireless or wired network (wireless would be better...) to share my connection with my housemate, as well as with some devices. The only guide I found regarding this (I must admit, I didn't have much time to put into research), was dating back to 2005, and although doable, seemed somewhat confusing. Getting to the point: is there a way (maybe a standalone program, or some kind of plugin) to share a connection?

Ubuntu Networking :: 11.04 Management Of Network Card / Wired/wireless Setup?

May 1, 2011

I am facing a problem with the management of my network card after installing Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit Desktop edition.

There are two Network Cards and one USB adapter which I'd like to drive:

- Ethernet controller Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5703X Gigabit Ethernet (rev 02)
- Ethernet controller Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
- Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8187 Wireless Adapter

Actually I need the wireless adapter to connect to the AP, so both of the ethernet card should be disabled. Infact, when I try to access to the AP I must disable the eth0 card by using (sudo ifconfig eth0 down), otherwise the route assigns the default gw ( to the eth0 device and the network is useless.

Fedora Networking :: Setup A Wireless Connection Between F10 And A HP J6480?

I am trying to setup a wireless connection between F10 and a HP J6480. I dnloaded the linux driver hplip-3.9.2, disabled the SELinux and ran the install. When I choose method of connecting - wireless it would not discover the device. The only way was to enable the USB descovery. Doing so, the computer found the printer and all is fine. What am I missing trying to enable the wireless connection. Note, that during this process, the USB was not connected. Also, I dual boot with Vista and I can run the printer wireless.

Fedora Networking :: Manual Wireless Setup - WPA Supplicant?

Dec 20, 2009

In the process of making the jump from Ubuntu to Fedora and some of the file placement is catching me. Under Debian, I knew how to setup wireless from boot using /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/wpa_supplicant. Now, I know F12 uses /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf, but I can't seem to follow the details. Can I use the same commands issued in /etc/network/interfaces in the appropriate /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts file? Can I, basically, copy my /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf to /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf?

Ubuntu Networking :: Belkin F5D7050 Wireless-G 54Mbps USB Network Adapter Setup?

Apr 13, 2011

I recently installed the latest and greatest Lubuntu 64 bit, because I like lxde and I am planning a system migration. (I am really starting to not like windows 7.) I have some linux experience. I wouldn't say I am awesome at it, but I am comfortable trying anything.

Example: I have used CENTOS 5.6 to make a linux machine server as a glorified router, with asterisks, SIP, SSH server, x windows, GNome, VNC, and a user authentication system. and get this I walked somebody through setting this up over the phone. I reopened the root account (I honestly got tired of typing sudo every other command is the only reason why I opened it.) I plan on closing it after we are done.

lsusb lists the wireless adaptor

Wireless Card Link


I have the driver CD. I installed ndiswrapper.I copied the files from my driver cd to my <home> Directory. Then installed the Windows XP version of the drivers using ndiswrapper -l <driver>. I then made ndiswrapper force the driver to the vendor ID of the wireless card. Using ndiswrapper -a <vendor ID> <Driver>(I did this last night and the vendor ID escapes me. I am at work now.)I finally ran depmod -a and modprobe ndiswrapperI goto the windows wireless driver application, and it shows the driver as loaded and the hardware as found.

However, it still does not list a wireless device in the network manager to where I can connect to my wireless. iwconfig does not show any wireless LAN, but it is still listed in lsusb. Also, the light that shows activity on the wireless device does not light up or blink at all. I have about 6 usb ports on my desktop and have tried everyone. The wireless card also works in Windows 7 64-bit On a strange side note. I do have internet access through LAN, (My laptop is atm a glorified wireless card .)
