Ubuntu :: U11.04 Wireless Internet Connection Doesn't Work / Get That?

Apr 30, 2011

I've just upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04. Everything worked fine, until I rebooted. Now I can not connect to my home wireless internet, so I can't re-enable third party software sources. I am currently using a different computer, so I know that our internet works. I checked the wireless switch on my laptop, and it says that wireless is enabled. I've rebooted, and it still doesn't work. I tried our wired internet, and that didn't work either (although I'm not sure if our wired internet works; we haven't used it in a few years)

Fedora Networking :: Internet Very Slow / DHCP Doesn't Work W/ Wireless Connection

Jul 17, 2009

I am a convert from Ubuntu (9.04 kept freezing on my laptop; when it did work, many packages it seemed were outdated--ie only Eclipse 3.2, rdesktop was messed up [and apparently is also in Fedora]), and I am having some trouble with getting my wireless working.I am running Fedora 11.First off, there is a problem when trying to connect when using DHCP. NetworkManager gets to the second green dot, and then after a short while I am given a message that the connection was disconnected.

Configuring the interface manually, not using DHCP, allows the connection to complete. However, the internet is very slow. There is a 15-30 sec delay before website loading actually commences, and then another delay each time an ad must be fetched from another server.How can I fix this delay? I know I have encountered it in earlier versions of Ubuntu, but I can't remember how I fixed it.About the rdesktop problem, if anyone is able to help [maybe I should post another thread?], the cursor color (the color of the pointer) is inverted---where it should be white it is black, and where it should be black it is white. I use rdesktop a lot to connect to my terminal server in my basement. Any idea how to fix it?

Networking :: Use The Laptop With The Wireless Connection To Share The Internet Connection?

Feb 4, 2010

I have two linux laptops. Currently, I'm using both of them at work, side-by-side. Now the problem is, I'm connected to a wireless router, but the wireless only works on one of the laptops. So I'm stuck with one laptop that has no access to the internet. Both machines do, however, have working ethernet nic cards. So, I was wondering if I could use the laptop with the wireless connection to share the internet connection with my other linux machine and access the internet on both of them. Or as an alternative, just use the internet on the machine without wireless and be able to switch back and forth, that would increase my productivity like 30 fold.

Ubuntu Networking :: Make A Wireless AP And Share Wireless Internet With It?

Mar 12, 2011

I have a Dell Studio 1558 with a Broadcom wireless adapter. It's a brilliant piece of hardware and love everything about it except some of it's overheating problems. When I first bought it with Windows 7 pre-installed, it had an application installed on it called PeerNet, which creates a wireless network for other computers (and wifi-enabled phones) to connect to it. Simultaneously, you could also share your internet connection with these users. The internet connection could be either wired or wireless.

My question is, how do I go about finding the same functionality on Ubuntu since I know my hardware is capable of it. (I believe in Windows 7, it creates a virtual adapter that it uses) I know there are ways to share a WIRED internet connections with some help with the terminal, but I haven't found a way to share a WIRELESS internet connection. The network manager allows you to create a wireless network but I'm unable to connect to another wireless network at the same time.

The reason I mentioned mobile phones is because my mobile (Android 2.2) is unable to find a wireless network created by the network manager, but another laptop is (without internet access that is). I've noticed that mobile devices and iPod's aren't able to find ad-hoc networks on Windows PCs as well.

I hope someone out there will be able to find a solution for me (and surely others as well!) Maybe the final release of 11.04 will help out later if nothing turns up now.

Ubuntu Networking :: Internet Connection: 'Work Offline' - "No Network Connection"

Oct 31, 2010

I have the "Work Offline" problem: when I boot up, the icon on the toolbar tells me I have "No network connection". This is not quite true, since I can access the first page of any website - only subsequent pages are inaccessible. I get a message saying that Firefox is offline. However, when I uncheck "Work Offline" in the File menu, it makes no difference to this behavior.

The problem is on my Ubuntu Dell desktop, which is connected to the internet with cable broadband via a D-Link router (wired connection). It has worked fine up till now. I use Ubuntu 10.04 and Firefox 3.6.11. I am writing this on my Ubuntu Dell laptop which is wired to the same router, so I assume the problem is not the router. I have tried various strategies suggested in threads on these forums, including editing about:config, changing "allow" to "deny" in some lines of /etc/dbus-1/system.d/NetworkManager.conf and changing from Automatic (DHCP) to Automatic (DHCP) Addresses only, but no luck so far. The contents of ifconfig are:

eth0
Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 001:aa0:91:a7:51
UP 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
collisons: 0 txqueulen: 1000
RX bytes: 0 (0.0 B) TX bytes: 0 (0.0 B)
[Code]...

If I comment out "auto eth0" as well, it makes no difference. If I uncomment both lines ("auto eth0" and "iface eth0 inet dhcp") then I lose the internet connection altogether.

Ubuntu :: Internet Connection Sharing: Tutorial Doesn't Make Sense?

Feb 5, 2010

At home I'm currently running Hardy on a desktop machine and Jaunty (Eeebuntu) on an EeePC. I often connect the desktop to the internet via a cellphone as modem. I also often connect the EeePC to the desktop via crossover cable and SSH into the desktop so I cam watch video files from the desktop on the EeePC from the sofa or bed.

I'd like to be able to use the desktop's internet connection from the EeePC. This means I have to set up the desktop so the EeePC can share its connection - this involves setting up the desktop as a gateway I believe?

Looking around for info on how to do this, I found this guide [URL]...in-ubuntu.html - but unfortunately it seems this guide has not been written correctly. It repeats itself in one section (below: repeated section in bold):

Ubuntu :: Internet Connection Won't Work?

Apr 19, 2010

I just changed my wireless connection over to wired and my computer claims it's connected but when I try to open and webpage (or even ping) it can't connect.

Keep in mind I am plugged directly into the router. Also I'm not sure if this is helpful but, I did have connection sharing for my xbox when I had wireless. I'm typing this on windows 7 which is driving me further into insanity by the minute.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Can't Get The Internet Connection To Work

Jul 14, 2011

I have just recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 and I can't get the internet connection to work. I have found out that the wireless adapter that is pre-installed in my laptop (toshiba satellite A665) has been interfering with the main wireless.

The adapter Ubuntu is trying to use it my WiMAX local wireless adapter which is incorrect. My main wireless adapter is my Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6250 AGN which Ubuntu can't find.

Ubuntu :: Can't Connect To Wireless Internet In 10.10 / Make It Possible?

Mar 4, 2011

I have a 10.10 installation through Wubi.

I can't connect to my wireless network.

I use the icon in the top right to try to connect but there does not seem to be a utility that searches for connections, or if there is it is not doing anything. Instead it seems that I need to set up the connection manually. I put in the SSID from the router, though I was never asked for this info in windows, but it wants my MAC address, which I can't find on the router. It also doesn't automatically ask for my wireless key which seems very strange; it only asks for it if I select WPA2 from a drop down menu.

The ubuntu official guide on this told be to go into hardware drivers and enable proprietary drivers. There's no such thing but there is "additional drivers" and when I go into this it says there aren't any.

As an aside I've had a funny experienc with Ubuntu. I installed it on my laptop and thought it was great. Everything worked fine, connecting to the internet seemed to happen almost instantly just by putting in the wireless key, and I was thoroughly impressed. However, since I've installed 10.10 on my desktop through Wubi I've had nothing but problems. I can't even play media from my external hard drive.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Connection, No Internet?

Jun 10, 2011

Finally I thought I solved my problem with the help of Dmizer. My networkcard wasn't functioning correctly due to the hardware switch on my laptop. For more information about this check this thread: [URL]

Now I have a new problem, probably caused by the problem above. I have a connection (so the network manager says) but no internet. I checked the network settings by using the ifconfig command in a terminal. This tells me that I have an address of 10.43.42.2 (or similar) which should be something like this 192.168.x.x.

I had already tried to use a command like "ifconfig release" but this didn't work. I know too much windows like but i had to try something. I also had the connection properties checked and changed to my network settings. After i did this I had still the same address (10.43.42.2 or similar).

Unless someone knows what is going on I'd like to know how to refresh of renew my IP address from the DHCP server.

Some information about my hardware and drivers:

NIC vendor: Atheros Communications Inc.
NIC chipset: AR2413 (i guess, i do not have my laptop with me at the time of writing)
Old driver: ath5k
New driver: ath_pci (installed from madwifi)
