Ubuntu :: Access The Internet At Home With Wireless Using Firefox After Upgrade To 10.04

May 19, 2010

After my "upgrade" to 10.04 I am unable to access the internet at home with wireless using Firefox, but am able to access the router. I am however able to access the internet at work, both use WPA password protection. I was also able to do the updates over wireless at home, despite not being able to access the internet. I am currently at work, and downloaded Google Chrome and did not import settings from Firefox, to see if there were any settings issues with Firefox itself.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Access Internet Using Firefox When Wireless

May 3, 2011

I just loaded Ubuntu 11.04 onto Acer Aspire 5100 computer. I can access the internet through Firefox when I connect ethernet lan cable but it doesn't work when I use wireless connection. Although I do get the indicator in top right that says my wireless connection was established. Why I can't access internet with Firefox in wireless mode? I tried toggling the wireless switch in front of Acer but that didn't work.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Access To Home After Clean Upgrade?

Oct 25, 2010

I used to use Ubuntu 9.10 for a year. I had my home path on different partition (19Gb) than the system partition (12Gb). Before I upgraded, the free space on Home partition (19Gb) was 6.3Gb. I knew that the direct upgrade is not good, so, I format the system partition (12Gb). Then, I install clean version of Ubuntu 10.04 on it. every thing is great. except that, I can not find my files in the old home path. In same time, Ubuntu is telling me that the Home partition (19Gb) (which I have not touch at all) has free space of 6.3Gb and used space of 11.3Gb. It means it can recognize that there is something but it can not open it at all.

system information:

Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid)
Gnome 2.30.2
2.6.32-25-generic

Ubuntu :: Upgrade To 10.04 - Encrypted Home Directory Access Lost

Nov 7, 2010

Apparently after an upgrade, I lost access to my encrypted home directory. Looks like upgrade scripts changed the scripts that mounted my encrypted home directory. As I don't have my ecryptfs password handy, is there any way to revert the things back as they were? I have liked Ubuntu all the way but after this upgrade-mess-up, I might change my view.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lost Access To Encrypted Home After Upgrade?

Jul 28, 2011

I just tried reinstalling ubuntu 11.04 from the live disc, installation went well but afterwards I cannot get access to my home directory which is encrypted and I stupidly forgot to note the mount passphrase. is there anything I can do? where would the mount passphrase be stored from the previous installation and is there any chance of recoving it. Home and the root are on the same drive and the installation did not format the drive.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Access Home Wireless Network

Nov 11, 2010

So I finally successfully installed Ubuntu 10.10, but I can't access my home wireless network. I dual booted with Windows 7, and it detects my local wireless network, asks for the key and connects correctly. In Ubuntu, I have to plug in an ethernet cable to access the internet (like I am now). Ubuntu doesn't detect the network, and I tried "Create New Wireless Network..." up the top right, but it doesn't connect.

General :: Connecting To Home's Wireless Internet

Oct 17, 2010

I've searched all night for similar threads and either don't understand the instructions or find that my computer simply isn't the same! I've tried to gather as much information as I felt needed when people asked in other threads. Just use small words around me, I'm really *that* technologically inadequet. Why I bought a linux ubuntu computer is still a mystery!

I'm having trouble connecting to my home's wireless internet, which is linksys. I can connect via wire just fine, but I want to access my built-in wireless card. How do I set up the wireless for this machine? Here's the info of what version of Ubuntu and about the card.

Ubuntu 8.04.1
l

Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller [10ec:8136] (rev 02) Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g [14e4:4315] (rev 01)

What do I do with this information? If I could transfer edible cookies through this computer, I totally would.

General :: Cannot Access Internet And Cannot Download Firefox 3.6.12 ?

Dec 15, 2010

I have an acer aspire one notebook (I gather firefox 2 is interwoven on the system?). Anyway, keep pressing firefox icon and it churns over put nothing happens. I found the following advice on another site: (Sorry this is so long, but I wanted to give you as much info for you to help me)

Press Alt+F2 to show the Run program window. Check Run in terminal, leave the input field blank, and click Run to open a terminal. If you're not familiar with the Linux command line just follow the instructions step by step. The easiest way is to simply paste the commands into the terminal with Ctrl+Shift+V. Most of them will only give feedback if an error occurs.

The first command uses wget to download Firefox 3.6 from an official mirror. You can edit the lang variable at the end, in this case en-US, if you'd like another language. All available languages are listed here, just hover over the download link to get the language code from the status bar.

wget -N [url]

The next step extracts the just downloaded file and modifies a link to point to it. In a few cases a connection refused error message may be triggered by sudo, which is not an error but a bug in sudo and can be safely ignored.

The next step links all plug-ins (not to be confused with extensions) to it.

Launch the profile manager using the command below. Create a new profile, name it anything you like and select it. If you want to keep your bookmarks export them via the bookmark manager first. You can then delete the old default profile.

firefox -profilemanager -no-remote

As a bonus you can also change the icon to the official Firefox icon.

Finally reboot the AA1 to make the desktop aware of the new icon and browser location.

However when I try the above I get the following responses at each point:

I do now have a new icon on the desktop! but still no internet.

At my college the Internet works fine though.Anybody got some tips how to get the speed up and how to get the Internet at home to work?

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Upgrade - Internet Access Broken

Jun 12, 2011

11.04 has finally fixed my Screen Resolution problems. Yippee. But now the Internet access has broken, again rendering my Ubuntu installation mostly useless. Yes, it tells me Wired internet disconnected, after repeated attempts to gain access to the internet over a LAN cable. I have tried everything to get it to work, even manually entering all the info to allow access to my router. But still No. What is even more frustrating is that the internet worked fine on the Live CD, but not on the final installation.

Fedora :: Firefox After Autoten Fail - No Internet Access

Jul 3, 2009

I just tried installing Google Earth on my fresh 64 bit Fedora 11 install using autoten, which I used earlier to install java and some codecs. I also used leighs guide to install 64 bit flash and remove nspluginwrapper. All was working fine. Then I decided to use autoten to install googleearth. It failed early giving an error saying:

First error was:
resolving dnmouse.org... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address `dnmouse.org'
Error getting repository data for googleearth, repository not found
# checking installation..
Size of report file is 0 lines

Error window opened up saying:
Google earth, was not installed correctly, please check you have an active connection. From this point on, Firefox cannot access the internet. I can ping google.com and dnmouse.com successfully. I did the update that included the new firefox 3.5, so accessing the internet and my connection is active. Konversation is working correctly. Just firefox is having the problem. Message: Firefox can't find the server at start.fedoraproject.org, or google, or redhat etc.
I renamed the .mozilla folder, and restarted firefox, no luck. My /etc/resolve.conf contains the correct nameservers. Also tried a reboot, no luck, still have active eth0 connection but no FF internet access.

Ubuntu :: Internet Connected With 3G USB Wireless But Firefox Not

Apr 11, 2010

Am using Ubuntu 9.10 live disc.Plugged in the 3G wireless usb modem and followed network connection prompts- internet connection is working (little lighthouse icon and network manager indicates that it is connected).Firefox however does not want to connect to the internet.I've done the usual checks- deselected "work offline"; looked under advanced preferences and ensured 'no proxy' under the network connections tab. Problem seems to be firefox not recognising the live network connection, so any tips or workarounds are welcome.

Networking :: Add Wireless Access Point At Home Using Extra Router?

Nov 22, 2010

The garage in my house is a dead spot for my current wifi router.I can't get a signal there.Moving my router within the limits of my cabling doesn't fix it. But I have two other routers I'm no longer using.Is it possible to use one of them as a wireless access point to extend the range of my current router?If so, what is the general procedure for doing that? My main router is a Verizon Actiontec M424WR. My other unused routers are a D-Link and a Netgear, both of which have wireless capability. The Netgear had a superior range, as I recall.

Networking :: Get Wireless Access Point Working In Home Network?

Apr 17, 2010

I have had this configuration at home for years, but I just changed my line provider and I cannot get it to work.

I have a desktop machine with two ethernet interfaces, eth0 and eth1. Etho is connected to the cable modem and that seems to be working fine - well, I'm posting here, right? Eth1 is connected to a Linksys WAP54G wireless access point. I have eth1 set to 192.168.1.240 and the AP set to 192.168.1.245 (the default). The desktop runs CentOS and I have dhcpd running, and I have focused on the dhcpd.conf file, which I have changed many times. Here is the latest incarnation:

Fedora Networking :: F13 - System Updater Can Access Internet - Firefox Can't

Aug 15, 2010

I am coming from Windows XP Pro, on the same machine (and where I am writing this post from) so the internet clearly works on XP. On F13, the eth0 connection is activated and the drivers for the NIC chip were installed with the OS. The NIC is Intel Pro/100 VE. The problem that occurs is that the system updater (in GNOME) can access the internet, and installed a bunch of updates after installing the OS. I know it can get to the internet because the updates worked and in the System Monitor, I can see both uploading and downloading occurring during the updates. Now the problem is that when I open FF, I can't seem to get to pages, and I get the usual FF error (pic -- [URL]). However, I CAN get to [URL] as well as [URL] , but I cannot access several other subdomains on fedoraproject.org . I also cannot get to any other page online, ([URL] for example).

OpenSUSE Network :: Firefox - No Or Extremely Limited Internet Access

Nov 15, 2009

I've been running Suse 11.2 KDE on a 64-bit Dell Studio 1535 since last week's release, and have had no trouble using Firefox. At some point today, however, it stopped accessing webpages -- or, when managing to grab a page, it would do so without full html rendering. 95% of the time I get an error splash, while the other 5% I get some sort of truncated page that looks nothing like it should. Konquer and Opera work fine, as does KMail.

I tried deleting the profile.int file (no luck), then uninstalled/re-installed (no luck), then uninstalled and deleted every Mozilla/Firefox file I could find in order for a fresh install -- but this has not worked after several attempts. I still cannot get Internet access. How to completely wipe-out Firefox in order to allow for a totally new installation?

Ubuntu Servers :: Networking - Machine Refuses To Give Access To The Internet Via Firefox

Sep 21, 2010

I have a machine (lets called it machine 1) with two networks card, eth0 and eth1. Both have static IPs. Once in a while the machine refuses to give access to the Internet via Firefox (eth0 is the route to router). Other machines on the network have no problems accessing the Internet. Eventually the machine would just magically start working again, but this time it just seems to have stayed broken. I've done some simple diagnostics and found:

a) I have another machine running Apache with a Wiki on our network - [URL]. Machine 1 is unable to connect to this Wiki. I get 'the connection has timed out'. I can ping 192.168.1.73 and it responds in the usual fashion.

b) If I try to ping www.google.com it times out with: ping: unknown host www.google.com. I can ping google using its IP address.

c) On machine 1 I have tried traceroute on both www.google.com and its IP and I just get:

1 * * *
2 * * *

And so on until hop 30. Doing this on any other machine on the network works. So while it seems I can ping internally in our network and outside, but when it attempts anything traceroute or URL related it does not work.

OpenSUSE Network :: No Internet Access After Upgrade?

May 11, 2011

I just did a large patch on my opensuse11.3 system (upgrade of all installed packages), and whilst my network interface works, I cannot get past my router onto the internet.

I can connect to other computers on my network (here at home), I have an IP address via dhcp from my router, but I cannot get internet access, either from thunderbird, firefox, or simply by [URL] Clearly the computer was connected to the internet just fine minutes before since I did the large patch! Also, my other computers CAN still connect to the internet.

how i can debug it? It is just too coincidental I have upgraded everything and now somethings amiss!

If it's relevant, my router is a netgear WGR614v9.

A few things I've tried...

Code:
linuxthinkpad:/var/log # /sbin/route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
link-local * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth1

I have problem to access the Internet, with Ubuntu 10.04. In Windows I access the Internet in this way: Create a PPPoE Connection (with username and password), after this connect to a Wireless Network called WebSTAR (I have Wireless modem in my family PC), and connect to PPPoE Connection. After these steps the Internet works fine. .But I have same problems with Ubuntu. First I see the Network named "WebSTAR" but I can`t connect to it. And I try many times to join the Internet with "sudo pppoeconf" command in Terminal, but didn't work.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: 11.4 - Internet Very Slow On Firefox

May 17, 2011

When I had OpenSuSE 11.3 installed originally, I never had any slow internet connection until I erased the hard drive and went to 11.4. This is what my configuration looks like on /usr/sbin/iwconfig:

Cell 01 - Address: AA:AA:BA:BA:AB:BB
Channel:11
Frequency:2.462 GHz (Channel 11)
Quality=70/70 Signal level=-37 dBm
Encryption key: on
ESSID:"housewifiZZZZ" .....

The device I am using is a D-Link DWA-160 which is running the ar9170usb driver (and did on the previous version)

These are the steps I did:
Disable IPv6 from the global tab on Network Settings.
Set DHCP version 4 only in dynamic address in address tab.
Used the anti-IPv6 switches in firefox making these changes
Network.dns.disableIPv6 change from false to true
Network.http.pipelining change from false to true
Network.http.pipelining.maxrequests change from 4 to 8
Added ipv6.disable=1 in DEFAULT_APPEND in Bootloader
(I couldn't find bootloader _APPENDS that was stated in another forum)

Switched from ifup to NetworkManager for Network Setup Method. Reinstalled OpenSuSE 11.4 with Ubuntu 11.04 (to see if it was OS issue) and it still didn't work, so I switched back to OpenSuSE 11.4. Is there anything I did wrong or do I need to do anything additional?

General :: Get Internet Access Via Firefox On MachineB By Creating A Series Of SOCKS Proxy Via SSH?

Apr 8, 2010

I've been doing some security testing in a lab environment that does not have direct internet access. From home to connect to my lab machine, I

1. SSH to machineA.
2. SSH from machineA to machineB

where machineB is my actual lab machine. neither machineA or machineB allow anything other than SSH, and machineB is only accessible from machineA. However, I really need to run yum on machineB.I have managed to get internet access via Firefox on machineB by creating a series of SOCKS proxy via SSH.

1. machineB: ssh -L 12345:localhost:12345 user@machineA
2. machineA: ssh -D 12345 user@machineC
3. machineB: configure firefox to use socks proxy, localhost, 12345

where machineC has internet without limits placed. This is the only way I have managed to get internet working. I tried using ssh -L all the way from machineB->machineA->machineC but it didn't work (even when setting Firefox to use http proxy). I tried using ssh -D all the way, but again that doesn't work either. I do have access via Firefox using socks proxy. However, yum update fails to retrieve mirror list, and from what I have found I don't believe yum supports socks proxy directly. Instead, it uses http_proxy / ftp_proxy.how to get yum to go out over the SOCKS proxy I created (same one using in Firefox)? It seems like since Firefox can access the internet and everything without issues, i should be able to get yum to tunnel through the same connection to access everything.... I tried

>export http_proxy="http://localhost:12345"
(yum.conf) proxy="http://localhost:12345"

Debian :: Can Only Access Internet Wireless

Jun 6, 2010

Over the past month my windows PC has been playing up, I therefore am using Debian on LiveCD to get used to Linux (before I wipe Windows completly). Ever since I downloaded Debian I havent been able to get the internet (wireless) working, well recently i have, but not for long... After 2 weeks or so of me pratting about, I found out sort of what the problem is, or how i can sort of solve it temporarly. My USB wireless card is Realtek RTL8187 and it recognizes it and works by default, Im sure its nothing to do with that, although KNetworkManager will never connect me, says Failed to decrpy WEP (in dmesg), even tho it's the correct HEX key, so I use Wireless Assistant 0.5.7 which does connect me, with the same key network-manager wont. Other than this I would manually set it and 'dhclient wlan0'.

So, to sort of get internet I will first connect to the network (obviously) and once connected, I will ping google.com, which usually will come back unknown host after a few secs, UNLESS I ping google, and quickly set the access point again, manually. So after i ping google i type "iwconfig wlan0 ap [ACCESSPOINT]" and google will reply, for roughly 3-5 seconds, and it dies again. After a few more frustrated days I decided I will test this to the max, so I simply spammed "iwconfig wlan0 ap [AP]; sleep 3; ect ect (over 50 times) and tried to update aptitude, epic fail. It took 3 attempts and over 20 mins to get 11% on packages (after i deleted the default sources.list and just added ftp server).

I personally think it's to do with the new Mac80211 drivers as the old ieee80211 stack drivers seemed fine for others and on BT3. Yesterday I downloaded Ubuntu to see if it would connect, it also uses Mac80211 drivers, but it DID connect with network-manager, but is very poor and dies after abt 20 secs max. Im not a big fan of Ubuntu but if worst came to worst I would have to install it (because crap net is better than none at all). My Windows PC is on the verge of death so I really could do with solving this.

Also, what older versions of debian, pref LiveCD's (if any) come with the old ieee drivers? If none what other Linux distro's (old or new) use the ieee drivers? (except BT3). Im quite new to linux so please dont mention compiling stuff, as the LiveCD doesnt have make by default. Also please note I can only access internet wireless so I cannot download extra stuff on wired net to see (although i could on Windows).

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 66.102.11.104 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:192.168.1.69 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
