Debian Configuration :: Unable To Share Wireless Connection To Ethernet Port
Mar 1, 2010
I have got a laptop running Debian squeeze. I wish to share the wireless connection of the laptop (wlan0) to the ethernet port of the laptop, so that I can share the wireless connection to my desktop PC which is connected to the ethernet port.
I have read the article on Ubuntu community: [url]
I followed the steps, and the /etc/network/interfaces file on my laptop is:
Now the situation is: My laptop can connect to Internet (i.e. ping debian.org from laptop is fine), my desktop PC can connect to my laptop (i.e. ping 192.168.1.1 from desktop PC is fine). However, the desktop PC cannot reach the Internet.
I also read the information on Debian Wiki: [url]
It seems I must install and configure ebtables before sharing my wireless connection to ethernet port. Is it true? (But why the article on Ubuntu community doesn't mention it?) Or I just made some mistakes?
I created a wireless ad hoc network using network manager. That was simple. I have friend who doesn't have a wireless card, and still would like to join the LAN. It would be nice if he could have a different IP address Is this possible?
i have an embbeded hardware that uses bootp for booting from a Network Managemnt Host (NMH)on the same ethernet. The embedded hardware has both kind of ports i.e ethernet as well as E1/T1. I would like ask, what do i require to establish a communication-link between the embedded hardware and the NMH throuh E1/T1 ports of embedded hardware, so as to make it boot through from E1/T1. Further, NMH possesses only ethernet port. Just to refine my questions i'd like to know what additions do i need to do on my NMH , like may be i have to put an E1/T1 port or is it possible that the E1/T1 port can be directly connected to an ethernet port on the other host.
pardon me if i am not making absolute sense here as my knowledge is limited on Layer 1 and layer 2.
I have a debian-powered NAS (Buffalo LinkStation) and I want to configure the following behaviour: When ethernet (eth0) is plugged in, connect and get a static ip address (ie. 192.168.0.11) When a wireless usb-adapter (wlan0) is plugged in, connect to a wireless router (ie. "Ankkanet") get another static ip address (192.168.0.12)
My /etc/network/interfaces :
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static
what could be causing wireless to disconnect when ethernet cable is unplugged?
After some fiddling around, I have come to the conclusion my current wifi access point hates my other computer's Broadcom chip or the drivers thereof. So, my current idea is as follows. I would like to use my netbook to connect to the wireless network, and then connect my other computer to it through ethernet. My netbook is dual boot XP and Ubuntu (think Ubuntu is a version behind) and I would be fine to set up this sharing in either and just leave it on as a repeater station. My other computer is dual boot XP and Fedora and I would prefer this work to allow me to have network in both. I have a straight-through cable and have verified that my network card supports the automatic crossing over behavior.
I am using Empathy IM client to access to gadu gadu and to message with my friends. The strange thing that is happening is that I keep on being connected and then disconnected and then connected again even if I am continuously connected to my internet connection (no problem when surfing or using skype for example)It also seems to come only from me because when my girlfriend is using the same gadu gadu on her windows laptop simultaneously, she doesn┤t get disconnected (whether when she is at home and using the same connection as I am or when she is outside, meaning that it doesn┤t seem to come from the whole gadu gadu network)maybe it has something to do with the ports that gadu gadu is using but it is strange that sometimes it is working for a period of time and then not and then again.
I have a Dell Mini 9 with a Broadcom wireless adapter. I've had it working for months on Debian Sid, but recently I updated the entire OS to get KDE 4.4 (I also went from a 2.6.30 to a 2.6.32 kernel). Something in that upgrade caused wireless to cease to work properly. The problem is similar to the one described in this thread, but no resolution is mentioned there: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=50892 I've gone through all the steps to install the STA drivers/wl module for it, and it basically appears to be working. Using wicd, I can see all the wireless networks in the area.
The problem occurs when trying to connect. When I try to connect to my WPA wireless network, it eventually fails claiming a bad password. When I turned the wireless network into an unsecured network, it eventually fails claiming it's unable to get an IP. I've also tried at the command line with wpa_supplicant and it initially appears to work but in fact it hasn't. I've also got Kubuntu 10.04 installed on this machine, and it can connect without issue (using the proprietary driver that Ubuntu's hardware driver manager allows one to use).Does anyone know what has caused this? I even tried the earlier kernel, so that's not it.
while my brother was browsing the web on my windows partition he had a blue screen pop up, one of the soft/hardware error ones, not a true BSOD, anyways, ever since my lan port on the computer seems to not be activiating as no wired connection is recognized. The lan port/card is directly attached to the Mother Board, it's a gigabyte motherboard in a self-build computer. I'm just wondering if there's anything I can do to troubleshoot this and see if it is truly a hardware problem or if its something else.
Hello. I want to use my Debian box as an internet connection for a Win95 laptop. The laptop is old enough that the only port I have available to connect to the internet from is the serial port. I have heard that a serial port redirector will allow it to access the internet through my debian box, but I have no clue how to set one up. Any advice. Thanks
I've tried everything listed in these forums but every time I run sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode master Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
I tried the STA drivers and get the same thing except the kernel module loaded is wl instead of b43. Is it even possible to set this card to master mode? I can't find jack on the net. uname -r 2.6.31-19-generic
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.
I am unable to get my intel pro/wireless 3945abg connected to my router. The firmware has been installed and at first was even able to connect, but now the access point doesn't even show up in network manager. I am currently able to connect using a USB wireless adapter, but for certain reasons, would prefer to use the former. I've looked over this page with no results.
I have a 64bits laptop with dual boot (Vista + Ubuntu 9.10) and nVidia chipset. Earlier, I could connect to internet using both the OSs. But now, when I insert the network cable (RJ-45) in the network port, neither of the OSs recognises the network cable. When I click (left click) the network icon in ubuntu (in the right top corner of the desktop), it does not show any available ethernet connection.
I checked in BIOS also there is no mention of network card. Following are the details of the laptop: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:22:20:06:ac:19 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
I just upgraded to 10.04. I had wireless connection for 1 day and now nothing. No ethernet connection either. I CAN use both wireless and ethernet using my machine on Windows.....so the connection stuff does work. Here's the output of of the commands I got from the "sticky". I can't display the output as this forum puts it all together as one continuous sentence with no line break!
I've been trying for a couple of days now to get the Huawei E1750 to work but have had no luck so far. I've installed the packages usb-modeswitch-1.1.4 and usb-modeswitch-data and have edited the usb-modeswitch.conf to include the following:
Unable to access our site via eth0. Can access the same site, via same ISP on wireless laptop, or via eth0, but using ip annonymizer service. Have a feel that it could be something obvious, but after digging through Modems firmware I am running out of ideas
I'm been wanting to try Ubuntu for a while now, and when my mom's netbook started to get insanely slow with WinXP, I tried the Netbook Remix on a USB stick. I LOVE it, except I am unable to get the wireless working, which is the only thing stopping me right now from a full install.
I believe my problem is that I need to activate the two drivers "Broadcom B43 wireless driver" and "Broadcom STA wireless driver" which appear as unactivated when I go into the hardware drivers admin tools. Unfortunately this netbook (HP Mini Netbook FW376UA) does not have an Ethernet port, so I can't just temporarily hard wire it to activate these drivers.
So my main questions are: 1) How can I activate those drivers without an internet connection?, and 2) Do you think that activating these drivers is indeed the answer to getting the wireless working?
The details: Machine: HP Mini Netbook FW376UA Network Controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g Ubuntu version: Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook
I have a fresh installation of CentOS 5 I'm using for a server, and I'm having issues with port configuration. I have iptables running, and it started with no /etc/sysconfig/iptables file. I added a few basic rules (port 53, port 10000 for webmin), saved the file, and restarted the service. I tried connecting to webmin, scanned ports, and traffic was blocked. I set iptables to allow all traffic and restarted the service, and it still showed basically every port as being blocked. It seems port 80 and port 22 work for some reason, even when I tell iptables to block all ports.
I'm not sure what's going on here. Iptables is reading the /etc/sysconfig/iptables file, and if I use lynx localhost:someport it responds as it should according to the file. However, if I try connecting by IP, it's like there's some other firewall or something running that does whatever it's configured to do.....
I installed 10.3 (after buying it a couple of years ago and letting sit on the shelf) and can't get it to configure my ethernet connection or my wireless card. Yast doesn't include a list of available cards, and the error I get in installation-network setup is that the kernel isn't present. The machine I'm installing this on is a Lenovo, in which there isn't a discrete ethernet card (it's in the motherboard), but my wireless card (a Cisco LINKSYS 802.11G) is a discrete card. Because I'm divorcing Microsoft for a number of valid reasons, I don't have Windows available on that box.
I have one of these nifty Atom based "net-top" boxes that has built in wireless N and gigabit ethernet. the problem I have is that even when the ethernet cable is plugged in Ubuntu seems to be defaulting to use the wireless connection. This is a problem since in some areas of the house where I have a wired connection the wireless signal is pretty weak and so the ethernet traffic becomes spotty.
is there a setting somewhere where I can force ubuntu to prefer the wired over wireless no matter what, or to disable the wireless when the ethernet is plugged in?
I am basically wanting to use my Ubuntu 10.10 computer as a router. Note: Before you say just get a router please note that I am poor/cheap. I have two ethernet connections and one wireless connection on my netbook. I want to share the internet connection that is going into one of the ethernet cards through the other ethernet card and the wireless card.
DSL-->1sr Eth --> 2nd Eth (currently works) DSL-->1sr Eth --> Wireless Card (Adhoc) <--(connects with limited connectivity AKA no internet)
The 2nd Ethernet card already has working internet, but when I connect to the Wireless card (through an Adhoc network), it cannot get an IP (I believe).
I have just installed ubuntu 10.04 using the wubi installer to dual-boot my machine. Under ubuntu, I am not able to connect to the internet or my router. Everything works fine under windows. I have tried to find relevant information in the forums, but nothing seems to work for me. I have tried disabling ipv6, setting a static ip, but no go. ifconfig shows no IP, dhclient results in no DHCP offers and pinging my router's IP results in Network is Unreachable.
