My wireless card isent detecting my router even though it has detected my 3 of neighbors wifi. the only reason i thought that it may not be able to detect mine is that i use a wpa2 encrption rather then a wep like my neighbors. so i tried to go and reset my router using my other desktop and set it to a wep encryption, but for some reason my computer still did not detect it. i am using a dell dimension comnputer with both a linkseys N gigabit router model number :wrt310n and the reciving card linkseysduel band wireless N network adapter model number :wusb600n. can somebody please tell my what i am doing wrong? this is rather annoying as i have to drag my desktop and moniter out to the living room just to physically connect to my router to enable internet.
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.
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 having trouble getting my network set up the way that I want it/had it. You see, when I first set up my network, I just had my cable modem going directly to my standard wired router (A D-Link DI-604), which had DHCP,and was connected to all of the computers on my network. I had one switch hooked up to one of the ports of the router, but this was a regular switch, and it would not try to assign IP addresses, it would just pass through the DHCP info as I wanted.
Now however, my network setup has changed. My room mate and I both got laptops, and we decided that we wanted to have wireless access so we didn't have to constantly plug in to the router.
Now my network is set up like this: The modem is hooked up to the router(DI-604), which is hooked up on the LAN side to our computers, our switch (which is hooked up to 3 more computers), and to a wireless router card (A Gigabyte GN-BC01).
The wireless router card has two jacks for ethernet. One for WAN, and one for LAN. The LAN side we have plugged only into the computer in which the card is installed.
Now the problem is this: The wireless router card comes with DHCP by default, and it's assigning addresses to the laptops and to the computer hat it's in, and worse, the IP addresses are on a different subnet than that of the main dlink router. The Main (dlink) router assigns addresses from 192.168.0.1 (itself) to 192.168.0.254, while the wireless router card assigns addresses from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 (itself).
Because of this, I cannot access services on the wireless network from my wired network or vice versa. The first thing I tried was setting the card to assign addresses from 192.168.0.12 to 192.168.0.253, however it just said "internal error" when I tried to do this. I decided that this may be because it sees that it was being assigned an address on it's WAN side on the same subnet. So the next thing I tried was disabling DHCP and setting the "LAN IP Address" to 192.168.0.12, hoping that the DHCP would just go through the card, like a switch. I would have set the LAN IP address to be assigned by DHCP, but this was not an option, so I decided that'd be the best thing to set it to.
Once again however, setting the LAN ip address to an address on the same subnet as that of the IP assigned to it's WAN side caused it to report an "internal error". I verified that this was the issue by setting the LAN address to several other private IP addresses to test (I.E. 10.0.0.1, 192.168.3.1, 192.168.5.12).
My question then really is: How do I set up both routers so that I can access services and computers from each network from the other network. Should I set them with different subnets and set the gateway on the wireless network to the main router? To the wireless router card? Should I put them on the same subnet? Will it know how to communicate?

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 think I have unique problem. I have a d-link DWL G510 rev c.(Austrailian) WiFi card in my pc which is detected as

Now sometimes it detects my wifi router and shows its ssid in nm-applet. but when I try to connect, it tries for 3 or 4 minutes and then fails. for most of time it even does not finds my router.
I have a Dell Studio XPS15 laptop running 11.04 which works flawlessly with my router (it's a broadcom card btw). Now I'm setting up a new laptop for my Father-in-law which is a Dell Inspiron 15 which has intel Centrino 1000 wireless. I've installed and setup 11.04 on it. Everything runs great except..
Now it can see all the access points around so I assume the wireless card is properly detected and working. But when I try to log into my router and give it my password, it just keeps trying to connect and can't. I've double checked the settings with my own laptop and everything seems the same. why it won't log in? I'm leaving it as a dual boot with Win7 and I know that Win7 will log into the same router with the same password.
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.
trying to run 10.04 netbook live from a memory stick with a view to installing it on my laptop. However although I can see my wireless router and connect to it I cannot access the internet. I have tried this on my laptop and desktop with the same result. I was however able to download Seamonkey browser using the software manager....this also cannot access the internet. Both of my PC's have no problem when using XP or Linux Mint.
I have also discovered that if I piggyback, using Ubuntu 10.04, on a neighbours open wifi link I can gain access to the internet. My wifi is using WEP protection but as I said I can set the link up to the router, entering the appropriate key code, and have a good signal strength, I just cannot access a google search page.
Upgraded broadband service yesterday and now using a combined router and modem (Virgin Media Hub). But I now have no wired or wifi internet connectivity on either of my ubuntu 10.10 systems. I tested it on my work laptop which uses Window and it works fine for wired and wifi.
With 10.10 I no longer have a network icon upper right panel to check, so not sure how to set up wireless. Both machines have static IP addresses and are able to ping each other but there is no internet connection on either.
am having some problems with getting a pc to use the above software. background is my wife wanted access to mail in her "office". purchased a Tenda wireless router and installed ok (with TPlink pci wireless card on her pc). am using latest version of ubuntu (10.10 x64) on her pc and went to use firefox - timed out, same with evolution and thunderbird. synaptic works fine, opera and google chrome work fine. i'm guessing some sort of tweaking of the router is required but not sure where to start.
I am using an Asus R2 G32 Wifi Router. The CD's and the manual that comes along with the Router does not support Linux . Now the wifi connection was installed in Windows 6 months back with a password and but it got reset to default somehow. Now i want to set password again. Whenever i try to log in 192.168.1.1 in my browser, and Change the password and select Apply . Nothing happens to the page, as if it is static. No Submit Buttons work in this. Um a bit in mess ryt now as my wifi is vulnerable to any1 ryt now.
I installed PCLOS 2010.07 into my laptop and dual booting with windows vista. Now I got a weird problem that is when I connected linux to my wifi router, it cannot obtain IP! (it still work correctly in windows, problem just with linux) I had to manually set ip and that worked. Now i wonder what is happening, because I didn't see this problem with PCLOS 2009 borrowed from my friend few months ago.
I updated a firmware of my wifi router (small black box with antenna). The router is managed via web browser at address 192.168.1.100. I opened Mozilla Firefox connected to the router, but a 'home.asp' application - an interface one can to set up a configuration - running on the router didn't work properly. When I tried to change some settings, and eg. clicked a confirmation button nothing happened. I solved the problem staring Windows and making a connection using IE - this time that home.asp application did OK. The question is what may caused problems? A bug in this app or in general *.asp applications don't communicate well with browsers other than IE or simply they don't 'like' Linux?
I was introduced to Ubuntu about a year ago and recently decided to come back to using the OS. I now dual boot it with Windows XP Home. My former setup was with Wubi but now I have it installed on an actual partition. (The Wubi install, for whatever reason, had little internet problems.) I use wireless internet, and though my network card was recognized out of the box and can connect to my network, the Internet is very slow. It takes almost a minute to look up Google. Also, Firefox will often report that it cannot find the server for whatever website I try to look up, after trying to connect to it/look it up. I also cannot access the web configuration page for my router. (192.168.1.1). The network app reports that I often have a signal strength of 40% or lower. The following is my hardware/internet:
Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty TrendNet TEW-424UB adapter (54mbps) Westell VersaLink 327W router ISP: CenturyTel/CenturyLink High speed internet (512kbps)
I am the only Linux computer on my network. (There is no encryption on my network. I know there should be. but my parents are not very computer literate and they are the ones who have access to the network. It is easier just to go without.)
I have tried disabling ipv6, setting custom DNS server names under ipv4, and setting the wlan rate (or something similar) to 1492. Nothing works. This does not seem to be a network problem because my internet works fine in Windows, and I can access the configuration page for my router to change channels, PPP, etc..
I recently bought a new wireless router (Cisco E1000) to use in my house. The E1000 supports mixed-mode 802.11n/g/b, which is what I have enabled. It is the first 802.11n router I've had. My netbook (an HP/Compaq Mini 110) only supports b/g. When connected to this new router, I can only see my status as root. NetworkManager shows a little red exclamation point, and 'iwconfig' shows nothing. It's missing in the 'iwlist scanning' list. Even still, I'm connected and can do everything just fine. However, everything shows up fine when I run 'sudo iwconfig' or 'sudo iwlist scanning'. These have always worked as a standard user before.
After forgetting my wifi router password, I had to reset and reconfigure the router. I enabled WEP, and after I typed the password, the computer now recognises it automatically. But I can't connect to the internet no matter how long I wait. (The wired internet connection works fine.) How can I get the wifi to connect to the internet?
I am trying to get an arp packet from my wireless wifi router (access point), to which I am not connected. I simply tried ping 192.168.0.1, but the answer was connect: network is unreachable. What can I do about that?
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 am running ubuntu server x64 as a router. I currently have 2 LAN cards, eth0 and eth1. and I want to add wireless capabilites to the machine.I was wondering if any of you know which card I could use?I want it to be supported in ubuntu server and it must be n-draft, as it is to replace a Edimax n-draft router.
I have a Belkin Wireless G F5D7230-4. I was attempting to configure a wireless card on another computer on my network when it froze during the reboot phase after making settings adjustments. The wired connection is fine, except on that computer that I was making the adjustments from. It won't connect at all. I plugged a friends netbook into the same wired line and it connected. Also there is no wireless signal on any laptops. Mac, Win Linux, don't matter. I tried all the various methods of resetting to default but still when I try to access the router's config page @ http://192.168.2.1 I get the error Code: The server at 192.168.2.1 is taking too long to respond.
Ubuntu 9.04 running on a Dell C640 with a Dell TrueMobile 1150 wireless card. Works perfectly under XP. Ubuntu can't find it. Wired networking finds the internet perfectly (though I'm still working on getting samba set up correctly for file/print sharing on my XP LAN).
I'm thinking I need a driver, maybe? Can't seem to locate one.
i just thought the last few days about trying Ubuntu. so i did. i got a nice and fresh copy of Ubuntu Desktop version and installed it, everything worked great except my wireless usb 2.0 card. the only internet connection i have under windows is Wifi and i hoped that my dongle will be recognized by Ubuntu automatically...(naturally, it wasn't the case.)
so my adapter looks exactly like this one here, except for the color, it's white and it has my WISP's name written on it (i got it from them, along with a cd that offers win xp/98/me drivers...)
so even everest sees it's atheros and it's the Atheros AR5523 chipset.
i also have windows 7 64bit drivers if they help...
anyway, i can't get it to work and cannot access the internet any other way when on Ubuntu, so i have to use an already-saved driver..
Since this is my first post, before i describe my problem, i'd like to say regrats to all of you for maintaining here such a good support community.
So, here we go: I have a headless Debian box and i want to set it up as a small office router/gateway. On the box i installed a regular NIC and a Viking Traverse ADSL+ Card which gets recognised by the OS as an 8139 ethernet card and has an embedded ADSL+ modem. The modem is accesible through the PHY interface once it gets assigned an IP. Having said that here is the actual setup:
eth0 : Viking Card eth1 : NIC (this NIC is connected to a switch) eth0 : 192.168.1.2 (internal modem is on 192.168.1.1) eth1 : 192.168.1.3 /etc/network/interfaces
