i connect to the internet on my laptop using a usb modem. i want to share this connection with other computers. connected through lan cable. i want to manually assign ip on all computers. what should i do
i connect to the internet via my nokia 7230 as a modem.i am quite satisfied with the speed i get(around 40KB/s). yesterday i could share the internet connection wi-fi between XP host and ubuntu guest. i just can't figure out how to do this with ubuntu host and XP guest.i am able to create a wireless network...and my XP also connects to that. but the problem comes with the internet sharing part. also i wanted to know, what is the option "Auto-eth0" under wired connection in network settings.
how to change the IP range provided by default by Network Manager / dnsmasq from 10.42.43.-- to something else?
I have setup a working network using a Bell wireless modem (Canada) and Network Manager in 8.10, 9.04, and 9.10.to do Internet connection sharing. In 8.10 the only way I could get it to work was with WICD and KPPP, many hours spent on this one. I got it to work in 9.04 and 9.10 using network manager, but certainly not out-of-the-box. If someone would like some tips on how I did it, in each case, let me know.
My current challenge is trying to set the dhcp range of dnsmasq (which I am 99% sure is what is handing out addresses) from th 10.42.43.-- address range to a 192.168.0.-- range.
I HAVE edited /etc/dnsmasq.conf and can get the edits to this file to break the setup (dnsmasq will not start) but have not been able to get it to change the IP address range.
It seems that either this file is ignored, or overridden by some other process. I have looked at the very good post at [URL] about dnsmasq but this does not do the trick.
By the way, the way I can get this to work is to start NM, establish my cellular internet connection, then kill dnsmasq then establish my ICS network (on eth0). If I don't kill dnsmasq, then it does bring up the connection, but it then shuts down in a matter of seconds. It is all very manageable using a launcher (kdesudo pkill dnsmasq) on the task bar, but not all that elegant.
the IP range and where this is provided to Network Manager or the network itself is my real question now.
I got a laptop with wireless. Next to it I got 2 desktops, neither of which have a wireless card and I don't have any usb wireless adapters or anything. I do however have an ethernet cord. In the past I was able to set my eth0 connection to be "shared to other computers", then from my laptop I could run the patch cable to the desktop and voila, internet to the desktops.
For some reason though, now whenever I try to connect from the desktops, there are 2 green circles and a little blue circley thing going around them. it spins for a while and then says disconnected. Also, now if (on my laptop) I connect to the wired network, my wireless stops working. I'm kind of stumped here, I tried deleting both connections from both computers, setting everything up again, and connecting, and I get the same problem. Also seeing as how I'm trying to troubleshoot this from my laptop and watch this thread, I can't exactly mess around with it much right now or I won't see any replies.
I've got access to my LAN and the Internet via my wired ethernet connection. I'd like to share that access with my iPod Touch (device shouldn't really matter) via an Ad-hoc wi-fi network.
This tutorial in the docs seems to describe the right setup but is very out of date (7.04). Instead I found this tutorial and followed it to create the Ad-hoc wireless network. I was able to connect my touch to the resulting ad-hoc network without a problem, but I didn't have LAN/Internet access.What's the next step to get the clients on the ad-hoc network out to the Internet?I found this page in the docs that says I'd need to install dnsmasq-base and uninstalling dnsmasq. I checked and dnsmasq-base is already installed but dnsmasq is not. I do have dnsmasq in /usr/sbin but the package description makes it sound like this should come with dnsmasq. Is the page out of date? Will uninstalling dnsmasq cause other problems?
I'm trying to share internet connection with my wifi capable mobile device. For that I'm creating ad-hoc wifi connection in networkmanager with 'shared to other computers' ipv4 option. And there is the problem - the device cannot get the setting via DHCP. The firewall is adjusted properly by NM, dnsmasq is started. I've looked at dnsmasq arguments string and found that the temporary config file which is provided by NM is empty. So, where else should I look for a possible reason or should I just post a NM bug?
How do I tell the shared connection that it has a static IP and that I dont want a DHCP on the network?Do I have to set up DHCP on the box with the shared connection, even if that box only runs DHCP for a single IP address being the eth0 that is shared?Or can I tell the shared connection that it has a static IP and still allow network manager to run the shared connection?Or should I specify static IP's for all clients and the shared network manager and install say firestarter on the gateway to run the NAT for the eth0 out to eth1.
I want to configure a Gprs dial up connection through my Nokia N91 to surf internet in openSUSE. I am using openSUSE 11.2 installed as a guest OS in ORACLE VIRTUALBOX (virtual pc) in windows host. I connected my mobile to openSUSE using a data cable and the phone modem is detected. I configured Wvdial.conf file and used Wvdial to connect to the internet. After performing many changes I finally managed to get a successful connection, when still I cannot surf any webpage in the browser.
The only error that I get during wvdial connection is about Namespace (DNS) failed. I am using a AIRTEL (India) gprs internet connection.
I've installed it and all went fine, now i want to set up a dial up connection witch i dont know how. I've tried going to system/adminstritive/networking but 'networking' isnt there.then i tyr gnome ppp but it says it cant detect a modem.
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 . And Using BSNL broadband I want to know that how to create new connection using username and password as we do it in windows.I have used pppconfig command but it gives me error that no dialer found d tell me how to create dialer in Ubuntu 9.10
I'm using fedora core-8. I need to setup dialup server to accept dial up connection.Dial up server shoudl also allocate ip address to client (trying to connect using modem)If some one knows how to do this, please let me know.I'm trying to achieve peer to peer communication between two computers connected using modem on both side over PSTN line.
I have done the ICS in my ubuntu 10.10 according to this article using eth0 connecting to wan router and eth1 connecting to the lan switch. Everything works fine.I have an open vpn connection which have full tunneling through the server. I want the vpn connection to be shared on the lan, and every internet connection will go through the vpn server. If I change the eth0 to tunnel adapter in iptables forwarding rule, will it work?
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and trying to use Internet Connection Sharing through my Dell Mini 9 laptop.
The incoming internet is from wireless The outgoing internet is from Ethernet I am using a crossover cable as I have heard this is necessary I followed the 9.10 method on my Auto Eth 0 connection Here is a link to the Ubuntu Documentation I used The computer I am trying to share to does not pick up the internet being shared from the cable.
I want to use the wifi card in my laptop to share my internet connection to my Android Phone.Android phones don't support Ad-hoc networks yet (maybe not ever) so I need to the shared network in Infrastructure mode not ad-hoc mode.Using Ubuntu 10.04, If I click on the NetworkManager Applet ( 0.8 ) and select Create new wireless network, it will create an ad-hoc network, I then tried changing this to infrastructure, but it didn't work.Is there some way of modifying this created network to make it appear as infrastructure, or alternatively create a shared internet connection in infrastructure mode?
A friend of mine is trying to setup internet connection sharing in Ubuntu, which is something I've never dealt with before. Here's the situation:One desktop PC is dual-booting Ubuntu and Vista. This box is connected wirelessly to the router and can access the internet just fine. The desired setup is to have an xbox360 connected (wired) to the desktop PC, allowing it to share the internet connection.
1) A crossover cable would need to be used between the desktop PC and the xbox. 2) The xbox would still have the router's internal IP as the default gateway (I have zero experience configuring networking on an xbox... I hope these options are easily available). 3) The internal IPs can all be on the same network (i.e. router = 192.168.1.1 ; desktop = 192.168.1.100 ; xbox = 192.168.1.101) 4) IP forwarding would need to be enabled on the Ubuntu host
Is there anything I'm overlooking or just oversimplifying, or should that just about do it?
I just want to use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to connect to the internet. I have done a massive amount of troubleshooting, but some of it seems to contradict itself, and the only two things that I know for sure are that it used to work, and that my Ethernet cable is not the problem. When I use Terminal utilities like ifup and dhclient it seems that it can not determine IP information, but when I try to put it in manually, the "Apply" button grays out right after I finish typing it in. When I try to connect normally, in KDE or GNOME, the icon acts like it's connecting, then instead of having the connected icon, I receive a notification that "the network has been disconnected", and it goes back to the disconnected icon.
Oh, and by the way, I know that I could probably find a workaround, but I have limited resources, and this used to work. The Linux is a Dell desktop with Fedora 12 and the Windows is a Windows 7 HP laptop.EDIT: I hope that I didn't mess something up, but I accidentally used system-network-config to try putting in the IP address there, and ended up changing it back to the original settings, but the computer is now calling it Auto Ethernet in the taskbar icon, although sudo iwconfig in the terminal still calls it eth0.
I've got wired connection on my ubuntu and I set up a wireless network so I can share internet with other computers. I added another computer to the network, but it's asking for: * an IP address * router address * subnet mask. Where can I find these values?
This configuration works perfectly on my router at my house which has the IP of 192.168.0.1
However at my friends house he has a router with the IP adress of 192.168.2.10 or 192.168.2.7*, I don't remember exactly but I'll find out tonight. I have tried changing my IP settings on my xbox and eth0 to no avail. I noticed instantly that the XBOX IP is the same as my friends router. what the new settings would be, or simply changing the router's IP.
However there is also an issue with the DNS servers. I can't find them anywhere on the router or on the router box itself. I heard that I could point it towards my default gateway however.
i have an evdo connection with which i connect to the internet. i have been trying to share this connection for quite a few days from my lucid machine to a windows 7 pc but have failed. i have tried dhcp3-server, firestarter, network manager's built in capabilities but have failed! today i manually configured da windows 7 pc to an ip address within da range which network manager ws assigning when 'shared to other computers' ws selected and it worked! Now da question is how do i do it automatically? dhcp3-server never starts, it always fails with the error 'not configured to listen' or sumthng like it! Plus i want the wireless of my laptop to make an ad hoc connection to my mobile fone, which is also no possible...i think its some problem with da dhcp server.
i'm totally new to Linux and Ubuntu. I own a huawei 3g modem through which I connect to the internet. I plan to share the internet from that connection between my Vista pc and another pc running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. The computer I plan to use to share the internet, let me call it Server, is equalling running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. My Server perfectly recognises my modem and connects to the internet using it and I can browse.
I plan to connect the routers internet port to my Server using my servers network card. Then i intend to let the router do the sharing of the internet to the other computers on its own. I don't have any idea how to go about doing this. Originally, I tried a direct connection between my Server and the other pc running Lucid Lynx without bothering with the router and using the following settings which i found on an online tutorial:
Server ip 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 and no gateway then on the client client ip 192.168.0.5 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.0.1 I used open DNS servers for the DNS
However, i was unable to browse the internet from the client even though a connection between the two was established. Then I thought to myself, why go through this trouble, I have a router so why not go ahead and use it. But then I do not know how to do that. Using the router will enable me to effortlessly connect all my computers irrespective of operating system and ease the network creation process.
I'm trying to share the internet connection of my Windows XP Virtual Machine (virtualbox) to Ubuntu. I know it sounds weird, but what happens is that i'm using a 3G modem to connect to the internet and 3G connections are still very unstable with ubuntu's network manager. Fortunately, the modem works a lot better with my Virtual Machine. I have already set up a "host only" network between my Windows XP guest and my Ubuntu host and i can they can ping each other but i still can't share the connection of my virtual machine. I already selected "share this connection" on win xp but i think i still have to configure something on ubuntu for it to work. The interface Ubuntu uses is vboxnet0 (not eth0).
This is the last thing to do before i can get rid of my Windows XP partition
i have searched and searched for an answer but nothing i've found has worked for me what i have is an old computer with 2 network cards in it the 1 conected to the internet is eth1 one connected to the xbox via crossover cable is eth2, what i'm trying to do is share the internet connection to the xbox using ubuntu,i've tryed alreadyusing the network manager,using firestarter,ip tables,even nat,and all have failedi've been using ubuntu for 4yrs now, and i have always before been able to find answers to my problems by simply googling the answer. but this is one i can't seem to find an answer on.
configuring Internet Connection Sharing from my Ubuntu 10.10 machine to a Windows XP machine. I've seen How To's but they didn't work, yet.
The Ubuntu machine connects to the Internet through a DSL USB modem that required packages not provided with the distribution, and specific instructions to configure it; so getting Internet working alone was difficult. As a result, I don't even use Network Manager, rather connect using the command pppoe-start. The machine is connected to the Windows PC through a simple cable, through the Ethernet card.
Some tutorials I've seen on ICS are for machines with two Ethernet cards, or for wireless connections; but I've seen none for a USB modem. However I once found one, years ago, and it worked, but I couldn't find it now. It was using iptables, and I didn't really understand what I was doing, but it worked. But then I had to format the disk, and now I can't find a way to get it working again.
