Ubuntu Networking :: Network Manager Pppoeconf Device Not Managed?
Apr 30, 2010
After the use of pppoeconf, the network manager does not recognise neither the wired nor the wireless connection anymore. (It nicely did it before that) I tried to replace the etc/network manager folder with that of a different machine. Still the same. What else can I do to reset Network Manager ?
I use my T61 both wireless and in the dock, where I switch to the wired connection. After the latest round of updates, I seem to have lost the ability to switch to the wired network. When I turn the laptop on, I see it connect to the wireless network, but when I left click on the tray icon under Wired Network is says Device not managed. I have not made any changes to anything in the last couple weeks, besides some updates. How do I go about getting the wired network back in there?I tried to add eth0 back into System - Preferences - Network Connections, but whenever I try and add eth0, but it still says Device not managed.
I'm having trouble getting onto the internet with ubuntu 9.04. I have just moved house and have just got the internet set up here (typing this on windows laptop with wireless). My ubuntu desktop is plugged in to the network, but in the top right hand corner when I click on the network icon I get: "Wired network device not managed"
In my old house I had a static IP. Is this anything to do with it?
Just purchased a Asus USB-N13, and having follwed a mixture of tutorials, including the readme on the driver disk, i have had no luck in getting this adapter to work.Upon using "sudo iwlist ra0 scan" the adapter can see multiple networks, however device manager is stating that the device is not managed. How can I get this sorted and connect to a network?
I'm running Squeeze and I'm looking 3 days now for a solution in some weird problem. The NetworkManager Applet shows that there isn't connection although I am connected. The icon has this small "x" and when mouseover it says "No network conncection". Moreover when left clicking it, it says
"Wired Network Device not managed"
While I was looking for the solution a came across this post by an Ubuntu developer who says:network-manager-applet displays the connectivity state of network-manager's managed interfaces not every interface. So the title "network manager says disconnected but is connected and working" is actually misleading. The interface is connected and working but not from network-manager's point of view since it is not managing the interface. Additionally, in Lucid now network-manager applet displays nothing now for non-managed interfaces so is less misleading. You can check to see whether or not an interface is managed by network-manager by using the command line too nm-tool. You'll see "State: unmanaged" for unmanaged interfaces.
I have a problem with my internet connection this is the picture the device is Realtek RTL8187. i didn't know how can i manage this device to work so could you help me i don't have an internet connection in ubuntu right know and i really wanna move to ubntu my verison is 9.10
I installed ZTE MF 626 modem in my F10 with kernel 188.8.131.52-170, i run usb_modeswitch and so far things happened normally. Watching through /var/log/messages it says that F10 detects two port device for this modem: ttyUSB1 and ttyUSB2, and in the sequence it disable port ttyUSB1 BUT Network Manager still set this port.I mean, when i connect via wvdial appointing to ttyUSB2 i get connection, but Network Manager fails to do it appointing to ttyUSB1. How to change device port in Network Manager?
Yesterday I did an upgrade and today my box is unable to connect to the internet.
I have tried another cable, it didn't help.
Basically NetworkManager does not connect eth0 to the network, if I try to run ifup from the command line I get:
I can see in network configuration settings, that the device has been correctly detected and eth0 interface is correctly activated, yet when I try to uncheck the box manage by NetworkManager and start it manually, it tells me that the cable is disconnected... I've tried two different cables, different ports on my router - no help.
Has anyone ever tried or managed to use WPA encryption over a wired network? I know it sounds kinda pointless, but it was just an idea I had. I really just asking for experiences if anyone has ever tried playing around in this way rather than actually implementing it (hence I'm not actively searching the Internet for howtos and stuff).
My wireless connection has been giving me some problems, so I decided to try a wired connection directly to the router. However, when I try to do that, it doesn't work. When I click the network manager icon, it says that the wired device is not managed.
ifconfig gives this:
Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:13:d3:dd:12:79 inet addr:192.168.1.100 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::213:d3ff:fedd:1279/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
I ran sudo dhclient to try release and renew my IP, in case that was the problem. It released and renewed successfully, but still didn't connect to the Internet.
I just added a 2 port network card to a system that is running Fedora 11, but it is INACTIVE. I open the Network Device Control to activate it but there is no network ports in Network Device Control. It is empty.It looks like the system recognize the card and loaded correct driver.
when I first installed it on my IBM thinkpad, the eth0 was working correctly. I had someone try to install the network card for me, and something was changed to where now the wired connection is displaying "device not managed".
I installed Linux 6, configured the network during the install with a static IP and when I do an ifconfig command it doesn't show an IP Address. Can't get out to the Internet because I don't think I have an IP/Address. I restarted network, went into preferences-network connections and everything looks fine, ran system-config-network and everything looks fine. When I do an ipup ifcfg-eth0 and get the message "Connection activation failed: Device not managed by NetworkManager". Is there an option I failed to load at install or I need to install now?
Currently my setup is a road runner cable modem connected to a desktop via a ethernet cable. The networkmanager lists "Broadcom BCM440-BO 100BaseTX" device not managed. I've turned off the power to both the cable modem and the computer. I then turned on the power to the cable modem and then the computer. If I try the firefox browser, it can not connect to the internet.
Can you "split" a network interface in Ubuntu, similar to how airmon-ng lets you use your wireless card in managed and monitor mode, by making another interface out of the same hardware? I know it'd be slower, but I'd still like to do it.
I have got the following Problem: I installed the 64 bit lxde Debian version... I couldnt configure the network during the installation because I just have a dsl modem and not a router... so the configuration of the network failed.... after the installation I started debian... and was surprised about the lack of "basic system configuration"-software that had been installed... I couldnt find aptitude or whats the debian-Update-Programm called .... instead I found OpenOffice... HAE? then I tried to configure internet access..... so I started a terminal and tried to start pppoeconf... but the program wasnt found! ARRRGG! What am I doing wrong here.... Why are these system utilities like pppoeconf not always installed...
I'm running Linux Mint 9 KDE on a HP 6735s laptop. Wired internet connection worked out of the box; for wireless I had to install some propietary wireless drivers (Broadcom) before I could connect to my home wifi.Last night the laptop stayed on while running on batteries, and it eventually shut itself down when the batteries ran out. Today I have no connectivity whatsoever; not wired, not wireless. The network tray icon says "not managed".
I am a Ubuntu user (10.04 as of now), since I use it, over a year, I have to manually enter the command $ sudo pppoeconf everytime I turn on the computer and want to connect to the internet, the I click enter some times, enter my password of my internet provider, then I click enter some more times to have internet.I have to do this boring work, 3 times a day, just now I am asking you if you know any way of automatizing this?
I recently installed Lucid 10.04 on a P-IV desktop. The install went extremely smooth and Ubuntu was up and running. Hats off to the Ubuntu folks for the excellent user-friendly experience in the installation process. However , I have run into a networking issue. I connected my PC to the router issued by my ISP. This is a plug-n-play type of connection where the username/password settings are stored in the router and there is no configuration required in Ubuntu for accessing the internet. All I need to do is connect the router and my PC using the LAN cable. I was able to surf the net without any issues.
A few days later , this ISP service was down and hence I switched to another wired ISP. This ISP required me to dial a connection using another supplied router. I setup the connection using pppoeconf where I was asked to enter username/password. Again I was able to surf the internet without any issues. Next , I shutdown the system and before booting it , I switch back to my original ISP connection (the plug-n-play one). But now I am not able to connect to the internet. The router lights show that my PC is connected to it , but when I issue ping 192.168.1.1 to check connectivity with the router configuration, I get
Code: $ ping 192.168.1.1 connect : Network is unreachable. Also , issuing ifconfig does not show eth0. NM-applet also does not appear in my notification panel at the top. How I can go back to using my original plug-n-play ISP connection? I have read some posts about networking issues , but none quite like this one. Please note that all my Internet connections are Wired connections.
Here is my interfaces file Code: $ cat /etc/network/interfaces auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface dsl-provider inet ppp pre-up /sbin/ifconfig eth0 up # line maintained by pppoeconf provider dsl-provider auto eth0 iface eth0 inet manual
I just brought up FC12 on our VSphere to begin testing..The nic did not configure properly for some reason.. I was able to go to command line, and do an "ifup ifcfg-eth0" and DHCP got an address. Go into GNOME - System-Administration - Network , or system-config-network the "Activate/Deactivate" is greyed out. Also, GNOME - System-Administration - Network Device Control show NO device..
i have some trouble connecting to the wireless of the dormitery where i live in. so that is what i already did: connecting to the hidden wireless network via nm-applet i typed in my personal user data using "sudo pppoeconf" connecting to the internet using "pon dsl-provider"
so after i did that everything was working out very well and i was able to use the internet without a problem! but after i restarted the computer the nm-applet was gone so i can't connect to the hidden wireless network anymore. if i try to start nm-applet manually the terminal says:
Code: jonas@jonas-K50AD:~$ nm-applet An instance of nm-applet is already running. (nm-applet:1962): WARNING **: <WARN> constructor(): Couldn't initialize the D-Bus manager. jonas@jonas-K50AD:~$ if i end nm-applet using the system monitor and try to restart it again i get the following output: Code: jonas@jonas-K50AD:~$ nm-applet
It's been a while since i've been trying to deal with this problem but it was useless. I've found many related problems to this, most unsolved and those who had solution wouldn't work for me. I have few mates who have the same problem and still didn't find a solution as well. Here's the problem:
Both on my Desktop and Laptop, the network manager won't recognize that there is a cable pluged on the computer so that it would start my connection. The solution to make it work is pretty simple and its everywhere: use pppoeconf.
Altough that does the trick to make my internet work, i get another problem that i found out to be related to this one, which is: I can't use VPN. Which make me assume that one problem is related to the other, is that on my laptop, which has wireless internet, ubuntu will recognize it and then i can simple use vpn. My desktop, on the other hand, isn't that lucky and does not have wireless, so i can't just use vpn. So far, i've been using vpn on windows when needed, but switching systems is really a pain, not to say i'd rather do that on ubuntu.
Few other suggested solutions were to use 'wicd' and other network managers, altough for some people that did work accoding to what i saw on boards, that didn't really work out for me as well. Wicd coldn't recognize it either. Other suggestion was to check on some txt file on ubuntu, erase few information and let it 'fill up' automatic, it didn't work as well(sorry i don't remember all details on this one).
This problem happened on: First, wubi for ubuntu 9.04 Ubuntu 9.04(normal install.) Ubuntu 9.10 Happened both on my Desktop and my notebook, but the same version i installed on both of them were used on other computers and they did work on them so i strongly believe it has to do with the os itself.
Why is pppoeconf not creating dsl-provider file in /etc/ppp/peers/ directory.I just re-installed Lucid and now facing above prob. I cannot even copy an dummy file to the above path (even using sudo)It does not give any error,but then file is also not copied. I observed after re-installing,old kernels are also visble and i can login in low graphics mode I expected that after fesh install,there would be only kernel..default one..
I am trying to connect a computer running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to the internet via PPPoE over WLAN and having trouble connecting. The device that connects to WAN is a D-Link DSL-G604T. WAN connection in this device is configured for bridged mode. This is what I have done:
I'm a Linux noob an I am really desperate for some top, top, top assistance. Been battling a while now with my iBurst USB modem driver and hope there is someone out there that can help? I have been through umpteen forums and threads and tried literally everything I read, but to no avail. I also realize there aren't many Ubuntu users that use the iBurst modem, but I am appealing to the few out there that do.
I have installed the open source ibriver-2.6.31 for my iBurst USB modem. Initially all went well with fast connection etc., connection everytime I boot, until... I started updates of 10.04 LTS, that is when I became aware, from the forums, that a re-install of the driver is required after every package update due to no "package management" in the iBdriver. what a pain in the proverbial to say the least!
Anyways.. now I am the stage where the driver is always installed, but...all of a sudden, I need to run pppoeconf and set up the driver after each boot to get connected!!!! If I can't find a solution it will force me back to Windoze7 which I dread to do! Can a script be written to pppoeconf (rp-pppoeconf.iso is loaded I think) automatically during boot perhaps?
So any top Linux hacker or "notsonoobasIam" user out there with a iBurst modem and similar pains & mis-fortunate experience please share your ideas and thoughts to correct this problem permanently for me please? (I should maybe mention that the other day I performed the "Grub2 Profile" exercise to try and speed up the boot time, this does not perhaps have something to do with the fact that I need to reconfigure in pppoeconf after every boot does it? I doubt it)
I am a Windows refugee who discovered Ubuntu as a way to save my files from my virus-ravaged computer. Had no installation discs for Windows, so when I had to wipe my hard drive and start over, I decided to give Ubuntu a try. I've had mixed success, but that's another post...
Right now, the problem is that I installed 10.10 two weeks ago and was able to connect to the Internet with no problems - until yesterday. Suddenly, our wireless network (the only one in the vicinity) does not come up as available in Network Manager. In fact, the entire wireless option disappeared. I know there are many posts and threads on here about this, but weeding through them trying to find an answer is more frustrating than actually dealing with the problem. I know the router works because I can post on this forum from the Macbook. I really like Ubuntu and would like to keep using it, but not being able to connect to the Internet now on top of the other issues I've had is making me doubt I want to continue down this Linux road.
P.S. When I attempted an analysis through System Testing, it said something about there being no proprietary drivers?
I recently fixed an annoying problem and I thought it would be nice to share my solution here. The problem was that after a cycle of suspend/resume, Network Manager would only auto-connect to the same network as it was previously connected to. So, for example, if I suspended my laptop at home, and then I went to school and resumed it, it would try to connect to the home network, and then just give up. It would not connect to the school network unless I explicitly told it to.irst, I'll describe the fix. If you're having this problem, you can this. Copy the following:
I have used ubuntu in the past but had a lot of hardware issues with it and unfortunately moved back to windows (( BUT i have tried Ubuntu again and all seems to work great except wifi My wifi connection is sort of working because when i run SUDO IWLIST SCAN it does pull up all available networks. But in the network manager icon on the panel i left click but i see no networks and can't connect to anything. I WOULD LOVE TO keep Ubuntu and use it permanently but I must get wifi working or else this won't be possible.
I have used the information available at wiki.debian.org/iwlagn to install firmware etc for my Intel Pro Wireless 4965 card.According to the network applet the connection is good, but it only seems to work when my ethernet cable is plugged in.I get no connection without the cable in, even though clicking on "edit connections" showshat ethernet is shown as "device not managed".With the cable plugged in I can get emails. Iceweasel will connect to the internet, but Epiphany will not.Without the cable I get no internet connection at all
I have the problem with my notebook, that, after I used it at work, the network-manager always tries to autoconnect after boot. He has no cable network and so I get the message "not connected" after a while.how to tell the network-manager, not to autoconnect each time?
I recently put Linux on a Thinkpad T40 I got. The wireless card works out of the box--I can see nearby networks. However, I can't connect to mine. network-manager would try (spin spin spin), fail, ask for the password, and then go back to the beginning and repeat indefinitely. This happened to me on a different computer, and on that one all I had to do was use wicd instead of network-manager. So I installed wicd, but it's not working either--it hangs at "Obtaining IP address".
I've found many, many threads with people who had the same problem, but none of their fixed worked for me.
I also tried to get wifi going manually, using this guide, but that didn't work.
My wifi connection drops sometimes and, for some reason, Network Manager attempts to connect to my neighbor's network, which requires a password (which I don't know). Is there any way to blacklist a wireless network so that the Network Manager will never attempt to connect to it?
I have installed 10.04 on several machines as well as imbedded inside VISTA. All of these installs work fine except the one on my HP Pavillion dv9000. The synaptics device on these machines is very touchy in all operating systems, but caused a strange issue in ubuntu 10.10. While connected to the internet and working fine I barely touched the pad and everything quit. I rebooted and found no way to reconnect to the internet. On the panel there was a little icon about the connection manager. Hovering over this icon gave the message "Connection Manager daemon not working". The usual tab to "enable networking" was dim and could not be activated.
I searched for several hours and found no reference regarding this daemon. Is there a source of the op sys names for such daemons and what sort of terminal command would I use to restart it if I knew what it was called? I ended up scrubbing the partition and reinstalling. Even the recovery process would not get the daemon to restart.
For those that use Virtualbox on their slackware host and have a windows (xp) guest running. I have tried various settings for sound (Alsa, PulseAudio), the AC97 drivers are installed in the Windows xp guest os, but there is no sound and there is an unknown audio device (in the windows device manager). If I remove the AC97 drivers and use the soundblaster16 drivers in the Vbox settings there is no unknown sound device, but there's still no sound. why I can't get sound working?
I had trouble connecting to a wireless network with openSUSE, so I tried the YAST network manager to see if that fixed it. Not only did it not fix it, but now I cannot connect to any network, wired or wireless. I tried to open the default network manager and it said "Network management disabled". How do I re-enable it?I also have set YAST settings back to their originals with no luck.
Whenever I start up my laptop i do not get a wireless connection automatically. I have to rightclick network manager applet and select enable networking. After that everything works fine untill i shutdown and restart my laptop. I would like a way to change this so that my wifi connection is working whithout having to click something first..
