I am new to Ubuntu and Linux. I think that I like Ubuntu, but I don't think it likes me! I can't get onto the internet with my "old fashioned" dialup that is preinstalled in my Dell Latitude. In fact I can't find any reference to a dialup modem in Ubuntu 9.10. Have done some research and it appears that my winmodem will not work with linux, but there maybe some complex way around this problem. Can it be done? I have a Conexant HDA D110 MDC V.92 modem.
Is there any point to running a personal firewall when using a linux live CD or DVD with a dialup internet connection? My chief concern is compromise of the underlying Windows installation. I do not need corporate-grade security.
I am wanting a computer with an external dialup modem (ppp0 modem through a com port /dev/ttys1) to act as a gateway to the internet, forwarding internet traffic through ethernet (eth0 is set to static 192.168.2.2) to a router (the router is 192.168.2.1) where it will be broadcast to other wireless computers like my laptop (192.168.2.3). I've had this setup until recently when the gateway computer (the one with the modem) died. Now I'm replacing that machine with another box and an install of Ubuntu 10.10 but so far things aren't working for me.
Success so far:I have dialup access working on the new box. Took me a while to work out the configuration for getting dialup working, though the IP address is Dynamic (or it won't stay connected), "Check carrier line" is off, and "Ignore Terminal Strings (stupid mode)" is on in order to successfully connect and stay connected to my ISP. I also had to make my normal (non-root) user "lancer" a member of the "pid" group (the reboot) in order to use gnome-ppp as non-root. The laptop (192.168.2.3) is successfully connecting to the router (192.168.2.1) as I can see the router configuration page when I type http://192.168.2.1 into the laptop's web browser. This setup is unchanged from how I had it before when this was previously working and I don't want to change how the router itself is set up. What I want is to know what to fix in the new box in order to get it connected to the router (through ethernet) and bridging the internet through.
My problem is that whenever I plug in the eth0 from the gateway (192.168.2.2) to the router (192.168.2.1), Ubuntu's automatic plug-me-in network detection kicks in and I find my dialup no longer working through some kind of IP conflict (at least that's what I think it is). Maybe I don't have the "gateway" correctly assigned? (in the gateway computer for the ethernet connection, I had it pointing to itself as I don't know what to put for "gateway IP" as that is automatic So, just to check my connection, here I am pinging google (from the gateway computer which has the dialup modem) once a dialup connection has been made.
Code: lancer@lancer-desktop:~$ ping www.google.com PING www.l.google.com (220.127.116.11) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 18.104.22.168: icmp_req=1 ttl=55 time=179 ms 64 bytes from 22.214.171.124: icmp_req=2 ttl=55 time=176 ms 64 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_req=3 ttl=55 time=158 ms
What do I need to do in order to make Ubuntu of my gateway computer stay connected to my dialup but also simultaneously share an ethernet LAN to my wireless router and feed traffic to the other computers from there? I have googled this but some of the most promising instruction (e.g. http://www.ubuntugeek.com/sharing-in...in-ubuntu.html) call for packages like dnsmasq or ipmasq which seem defunct now in Ubuntu 10.10. Other pages seem to suggest dual-networks "can't be done" in Ubuntu [URL].. (what!?! I had it before my other gateway died)
I recently bought a dell inspiron 14 n4010 and i've installed windows and Ubuntu 10.04 in it. The problem is that i'm not able to access internet in my ubuntu. I'm using asianet broadband connection and i'm able to get internet in my desktop when i connect the cable to the system. But when i did the same with ubuntu 10.04 in my laptop, i'm not able to get internet access. I'm able to access internet in windows though. But i hate using windows.
I just installed a command line version of karmic to an old desktop. During installation, DHCP failed, so I attempted to configure manually (without really knowing what I'm doing) and wound up without a connection. I've been searching for solutions, but really don't understand what I need to do. A million thanks to anyone who can help me get up and running (or at least give me a push in the right direction).I can either connect the computer directly to the cable modem via USB, or directly to my wireless router via ethernet cable. I know what the ip address for my laptop (which is connected wirelessly to the router) but don't know if that would be the same for the desktop or not, and don't really know anything else.
I am using ubantu 10 and broadband where userid and passwd has been configured in router box. So when I connect this from windows its automatically connected (using ppp0e and dhcp), whereas in linux it could not connect.
is there a possibility to connect to my router admin zone from internet using wan ip? from lan I can do that using 192.168.x.x IP but when Im in work and something go wrong at home how can I check configuration of my router from outer world instead of lan?
I have installed CentOS in multi-boot set up.when i am trying internet thru win7,its working fine but when i am tryin to connect using CentOs,its not working.I have tried and changed the mac address to the one that is on windows(this worked fine with ubuntu) but the issue remains in CentOS.
I finally managed to install pppoe and pppoeconf. When I type command 'pppoeconf' , it invokes some window and I put username, passwd etc. But my net connection won't start. I have posting the output of various commands related to networking.ifconfig
In windows, when I use an HSPDA modem, internet traffic will be automatically directed through it. Everything will go back to normal once broadband connection is disconnected. In fedora 12 this is not the case, internet traffic will still go through the lan interface. Is there a way to mimic windows behavior in linux?
I have installed fedora 14 minimum install and I have configured my machine for Static IP but now i cant reach any external sites or repository, in fact all i can do is ssh to the box. below is the configuration in my /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file:
I installed RHEL 5 today and set my network. Did it as follows:Eth0 connectionPrimary DNS 192.168.1.1When I click on Activate, it says:8139too device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.This message shows no matter how many times I log out or restart.I don't know what the heck is the problem. I've done the essentials but still it's not working. I looked up on the net but people were saying things like ifconfig and lspci, and at the end still weren't able to solve it. I don't know all this since I'm new to Linux. Another important thing...after facing this same problem some time ago, I installed Centos which asked for internet settings right at the time of installation. And after logging in for the first time, I was able to use internet without any problem. How come internet works on Centos (which is a copy of RHEL) without any problems, but not working on RHEL itself?
I configure my server just like on the link found in novell i hope some can help me here. my client is able to recieve DHCP address and everything is working fine on the network how ever my client cannot pullup any website, but my server is able to pullup whats wrong on this one.
Cool Solutions: HOW-TO: Set Up a SUSE 10 Machine As a Router
I was able to connect to internet using PPPoE until I configured Samba network and set the machine as its server; does this two related? Is it possible there's a conflicting configuration, say DNS server config for example?
My home connection is dialup via an 8-bit ISA modem. I plan to use the old box with the modem in it as a gateway and do my actual work on this laptop. Connection away from home is not so easy to get in my area.
SuSE 6.1 has no problem operating the modem, so the hardware works. SuSE 6.1 can't seem to make anything else work though. How can I configure Debian to see and operate this modem?
SuSE sees the modem on /dev/ttyS1. The same chat script does nothing on jessie. I'm guessing that jessie is just not seeing ISA.
I'm able to install packages onto the box via a usb drive but that's only on the days when the local coffee shop's wi-fi actually works, which is rare.
I have F9, F10, F11 and F12 installed along with WinXP on my desktop PC. I connect to the internet thru 56K dialup modem (USR-5610B). The earlier versions of Fedora, F9, F10 and F11, all can connect via dialup modem.
My F12 installation is augmented with the following rpms - kudzu-188.8.131.52.i686, libwvstreams-4.6-5.fc12.i686 and wvdial-1.60.10.fc12.i686 (and the rpm for USR-5610B modem)
Network Configuration GUI shows ppp0 (Modem) in the Common Active Profile
However, ppp0 does NOT show up in the Network Device Control GUI, AND ACTIVATE and DEACTIVATE buttons are GREYED-OUT.
I am currently using Open SuSE 11.3 and connect to the internet through a fixed wireless terminal (CDMA Wireless modem), Huawei ETS-1201 with BSNL connection. The problem is that, after dialling and connecting to the internet, some pages dont load randomly. Sometimes, Google loads quite fine, but other times, it is just stuck and I have to reload the page several times. When I connect through Windows, I have no such problem. I have used Fedora, Ubuntu and Sabayon but the same problem exists. I don't want to return to Windows but is frustrated with my web experience on linux.
