have a dell Inspiron 1501 with ubuntu 10.0.4 I want to rename my wireless card from eth1 to wlan0 as I use conkyrc and it will not read my wireless strength or my ssid cuz it thinks it's a ethernet card and not wireless card. I know this for a fact because peppermint os my wireless card was wlan0 and it worked just fine.
I have an older laptop, a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 that has a switchable internal wireless connection. It will not connect to my router. I am using the 10,04 netbook remix. When I use lshw in terminal this is what I get:
Should it not be identified as wlan0? I know a whole lot about Ubuntu linux because I don't. I did a clean install over XP and am using this laptop as a learning tool for linux in hopes to divorce windows completely.
I have got Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Inspiron Laptop. Can't get anywhere with wireless network. Tried a few bits of poking it blindly with a stick:
matthew@ubuntu:~$ lshw -C network Warning: you should run this program as super-user. *-network Description: Network controller Product: BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY Vendor: Broadcom Corporation Physical id: 0 Bus info: pci@0000:0c:00.0 Version: 01 Width: 64 bits Clock: 33MHz Capabilities: bus_master cap_list Configuration: driver=b43-pci-bridge latency=0 Resources: irq:17 memory:f69fc000-f69fffff *-network .....
I reckon *-network DISABLED is a problem, I tried sudo ifconfig wlan0 up but that didn't work. The output of that and lspci are on the ubuntu side of my machine. I have also tried pressing my wireless on/off key (F2) but that doesn't work either.
installed UB10.10 on a dell d800 laptop with a built in wireless.The eth1 wireless device/connection shows up on the little radio icon as connected .but the chrome browser says "ERR_name_not_resolved" when I enter a common url.What's the next step or hint for gaining full internet access ?
I need to setup two ethernets in my Centos box. OK no problem both ethernet and 1 virtual works perfect. eth0, eth1 and eth1:0. I'm trying to set up diferent routes for eth0 and eth1/eth1:0 I need eth0 has a 192.168.1.1 gateway and eth1/eth1:0 192.168.1.100 gateway.I think I've tried almost every thing but always get one gateway for all the eth.These are my config..
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX inet addr:192.168.1.168 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0[code]......
I try to generate a server client code. What i try to do is sending video streams from eth0 and eth1 to the other server programs' eth0 and eth1. In order to do that, i decided to use SO_BINDTODEVICE. But the code is not working. Am i misunderstood the usage of SO_BINDTODEVICE.
1-Defining two ports 2-Defining two sockets 3-Assigning host ips on them
I have a hardware device with two ethernet ports, eth0 and eth1 running Centos 5. Basically my goal is to forward packets from eth0->eth1 and eth1->eth0 as well as get a copy of these packets for analysis. If I set IP routing to do the forwarding then I won't get a copy of the packets for analysis.
I've gone through the trouble-shooting procedure discussed in the "lwfinger" stickies. My results are shown below. Output of all test steps looks fine until I run "ifconfig" - no valid IP address is reported. My access point works fine with other devices (including an existing 11.1 install).My detailed trouble-shooting output is shown below.
TROUBLE-SHOOTING SUMMARY - wpa_supplicant software is installed - network controller data are identified by "lspci" commands (no switch, -v, -n), including:
I have a Linksys WPC300N v1 "Wireless-N Notebook Adapter" which uses the Broadcom 4329 chipset. Is there a way to troubleshoot and configure this card to use wl, b43, ssb? Preferrably via CLI. I have a couple years of CLI experience in Debian/derivatives (but only in my spare time ).
I have this card recognized and running adequately in Debian (and derivatives) using the 'wl' driver (sometimes supplied by debian.org, other times by broadcom.com). The one hint at a solution for this particular card/chipset I have found searching the OpenSUSE (SuSE for short?) forum points me to using ndiswrapper, which I've never used nor care to if it requires wine. I'm trying to ultimately connect to a b/g/n WPA-1 TKIP wlan.
lspci -v: 03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43XG (rev 01) Subsystem: Linksys Device 0058 Flags: fast devsel, IRQ 11 Memory at f4000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [disabled] [size=16K] lsmod | grep 'ssb' returns nothing (neither do 'b43' or 'wl') but 'pcmcia' returns: pcmcia_core 41748 3 pcmcia,yenta_socket,rsrc_nonstatic
When configuring this card in Debian, I first plugged in the card which resulted in some hard disk activity but the LED was not lit. After installing the driver, the LED came on but no network. After configuring the network, it works 'adequately' (no roaming mode) using the wpa_supplicant package and is readily identified during init.
This is not mission critical by any means so I'm not in a hurry and willing to try almost anything. However, this is an old laptop so I'm even somewhat surprised that KDE4 is running as well as it is (KDE 3.5.10 runs quite well, which is more than I can say for the latest Gnome DE; xfce "screams" relatively). Dell Latitude C-610 PIII-M 1.2 GHz 512 KB cache 512 MB RAM (YaST2 reports this as a C-640 but this does not agree with the BIOS splash). The display is an ATI Radeon LY using the 'radeon' server (default). I don't do compositing here. ;-)
All rc.inet1 an rc.wireless scripts work well if a wireless extension is on wlan(x). My notebook has Intel Pro 2100 wireless adapter (the ipw2100 module). By the system the card is marked as eth1. If you have a look at rc.inet1(.conf) you see that by default an eth1 has no wireless extensions. how to set up my network.
I looked at the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf file it says something completely diff than the iwconfig. iwconfig is saying there is no wireless extensions on lo and eth1 but on eth0 all my info is there now on the conf file it says and ip address on eth2 and nothing on eth 0, or 1. does anybody know why it keeps jumping back and forth? one week its eth0 and maybe 2 months from now its eth1.
where the various ........ represent the relevant addresses. This is necessary because my ISP only recognizes one computer - my first one. The above works fine, I simply copy and paste the above from a text document, but I would like to know which files I can alter/create so that all the above is achieved automatically when I boot my second computer.
I am trying to manually set up a number of static IPv6 addresses to one of the physical network interfaces on my 8.04server box.
I tried to use the "ip" utility like that:/ip addr add [myIPv6addr] dev eth0 label eth0:0
which was accepted by ip (no errors) and the IP address was correctly assigned to eth0. But using "ip addr show" I do not see any reference to the label I defined and "ip addr show dev eth0 label eth0:0" does not come back with anything (empty output).
This seems to contradict the information I found on the ip manpage and I wonder if this is a bug or a misconfiguration on my side. Did anyone successfully used the label functionality with ip?
I manage to get Ethernet over Firewire working between my Windows XP desktop and my Ubuntu 10.10 laptop.However, I am getting tired of having to manually issue the ifconfig command every time.How can I automate it so that the command is done at bootup?
I am working with ubuntu and my eth0 connection was up and working fine untill some days back when all of a sudden it seemed to disapper. I was able to access the net through it before. But now it has vanished and i donno when. i tried ifconfig eth0 up but no use. The result of cat /etc/network/interfaces is as follows
I have seen this in fedora 8/9 systems :- when I configure the eth0 card and give it a ip address using the ifconfig command from the terminal window and then check out the card from the network config GUI subsequently, it doesnot reflect the ip address as configured through the ifconfig command. However, the ifconfig command continues to show the new ip address as usual. If I need to change the ip address of the eth0 interface which should be the prefered mechanism - the ifconfig command or the GUI. Ofcourse I understand that, for the ifconfig command mechanism a line would have to be added to the rc. Local file so that the change is effective on every subsequent bootup.
I have a command that I run to renew my mobile broadband connection. It works from the terminal, but not in my crontab. My connection usually drops out after being connected for a week or so. So I tried to make a cron job to check the connection every 15 minutes (when there is an IP address on interface ppp0, then it is connected, so if there is nothing, I restart network-manager and it reconnects)
works from my terminal, but not when run as a cron job. If the schedule the above script to run every 15 minutes, it restarts network manager every 15 minutes, so I think ifconfig isn't working from cron. Is there some caveat about ifconfig in cron?
I'm trying to get my Ubunutu and OSX systems to connected via a cat5 cable to transfer some large files around very quickly. Now i know normally this would require a crossover cable as it's a direct connection but the macbook/OSX can handle changing the wires round to make it work like a crossover cable as I've done it before. However the macbook creates a self-assigned IP or as I've tried I've set it to : IP:10.10.0.1 Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Then I've setup the Ubuntu system both through the System>Admin>Network panel as: IP:10.10.0.2 Subnet: 255.255.255.0 and my /etc/network/interfaces file is the same; #lines added to get static crossover cable working auto lo iface eth0 inet static address 10.10.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0
Yet when I run ifconfig in the terminal eth0 isn't present Code: htpc:~$ ifconfig lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1 RX packets:912 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:912 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:371613 (371.6 KB) TX bytes:371613 (371.6 KB)
htpc:~$ ifconfig eth0 eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 90:fb:a6:e4:c0:b0 BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) Interrupt:23 Base address:0xe000
Also even when I try and ping 10.10.0.2 either from my OS X or the actually Ubunutu machine all I get is: Code: ping 10.10.0.1 PING 10.10.0.1 (10.10.0.1): 56 data bytes Request timeout for icmp_seq 0 Request timeout for icmp_seq 1 Request timeout for icmp_seq 2 Request timeout for icmp_seq 3
Yet the Ubunutu machine is also connected to Wifi and when I ping it's own address I get the expected response. To me it just seems like eth0 isn't being recognised somwhere or it's not turned on yet I can't seem to find any toggles or settings for it anywhere. Further more if I check >System>Admin>Network Tools the IP for eth0 is 0.0.0.0. What could be going wrong and why no IP set correctly?
I'm on Fedora core 14 linux. and I'm online with the HSPDA modem. My modem is /dev/ttyUSB0 and when it's dialed it creates the interface /dev/ppp0 , My question is when I hit ifcofig it shows two IP addresses in the ppp0 interface.
[nature@localhost ~]$ ifconfig eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 20:6A:8A:12:CF:53 UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
when I get the routing table, the gateway is setten to the 10.64.64.64 and when I look my Ip address global I found it's 22.214.171.124.
with my other ethernet card problem solved, I suddenly run into this:
Code: eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:02:e3:16:37:4c inet addr:10.0.2.1 Bcast:10.0.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::202:e3ff:fe16:374c/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
This card was working perfectly fine up until....an hour ago and it started doing this. My iptables isn't blocking it somehow, because I didn't change anything. I tried reverting to an older kernel and that didn't help. It's not the network cable, it works fine in any other card. Also, the dropped packets seem to count down? It seems to go down by exactly one every time I run ifconfig, no matter the length of time in between running it.
I messed up my Network Connections when I put a different NIC in my computer. Now I just went back to using the old NIC. It shows up in ifconfig, but the GUI Network Connections is blank. When I manually Add the connection back to the GUI Network Connections, the settings are not reflected when doing ifconfig.For example, I change the IP address for eth0 in GUI Network Connections, save the settings,
I am running Ubuntu10.04 as a Virtual Machine in virtualbox.I changed my Networking settings from NAT to Bridged Adapter and manually assigned IP addressing information for eth0 in /etc/network/interfaces. For some reason doing /etc/init.d/networking restart didn't bring up the network interface. So i replaced the new /etc/network/interfaces file with the original and rebooted. Now I have eth1 in place of eth0. Under System>Preferences>Network Connections I have Auto Ethernet and eth0. However running ifconfig shows lo and eth1.
I am using Suse 10 sp2. By running ifconfig I am changing the mac address. Everything is happening successfully, but this is adapter losing the network connection. Even when I give a static IP. I am not able to ping any other IP.
