I had one of those random system deaths, so reinstalled squeeze (daily netinst image I think...) on my eee 1000, which uses an rt2860 wireless chip. The new install only installed 2.6.32, which I had been avoiding using because of a few problems, including it dealing with networking slightly differently. I couldn't get it to work - even without encryption - using wicd. Having had a read of [URL]... , I had a look at /etc/network/interfaces, which read; This file describes the network interfaces available on your system and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
ra0 is now called wlan0, as far as I'm aware. I've read in several places that it is best to expunge this file of all references to wifi, so I removed the bottom section (after '# The primary network interface'). I still got nothing. However, if I go ahead and change the 'ra0's to 'wlan0's, it seems to work - wicd connects. Not very familiar with Debian (spent more time on SUSE. Drop your tomatoes - I like it. Any idea what is happening? Is what I'm doing wrong? Conversely, is the file wrong? Should it be reported? Against which package? Including any particular files?
I have a rather urgent problem with my network, I got two virtual network interfaces one internal and one external. The problem is; I can't get connection to internet. The external NIC is set as a NAT and the internal is... internal.
I have a Dell PowerEdge SC430, Squeeze 6.0.2 box, Broadcom NetXtreme NIC which works fine DHCP. The network-manager package is not installed. I have now reconfigured /etc/network/interfaces for a static IP:
auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.2
Alright, every time I boot or shutdown my routing box, it hangs at configuring and deconfiguring network interfaces. Below is my interfaces file. I see no errors or warnings in my log and I am running a pure kernel, not tainted with proprietary drivers. All of my hardware is 100% supported.
i recently started sockets programming. In the process i began to look for relevant network information about my computer and realized that ifconfig wasn't displaying the same information that resides in my /etc/network/interfaces file. On the interfaces file my IP address is 192.168.1.109 for interface eth0 but ifconfig displays 192.168.1.101. I was under the impression that ifconfig got its information from the interfaces file but clearly doesn't. I tried re configuring the device with ifconfig and then disabling and re enabling the device with ifdown and ifup so that the device updated its information but it didn't.
I bought a USB wireless adapter for my desktop. I finally got it to partially work using firmware-ralink as described [URL]sing network manager it will pick up my wireless network. However it will not connect to it.
The output of iwconfig is wlan0†IEEE 802.11bg† ESSID:"familyfarm"† Mode:Managed† Frequency:2.437 GHz† Access Point: 00:1C:DF:B6:EA:B9†
I use a 'wifi hotspot' provided by my mobile (android) phone for internet/email and to connect to my wifi capable HP p1102w printer. Installation and use of the printer worked perfectly until I bought a new phone, again android with 'wifi hotspot' capability. The wifi connection on my new phone works fine for internet and email but it totally fails to detect my printer.
I have tried to detect and connect to the printer using system-config-printer and using the HP utility hp-setup. Both fail to detect the printer on the 'new' wifi network.
The old network connection which detects the printer as expected gives the following output:
I'm installing Squeeze on on a Dell Latitude D830 laptop with a Broadcom BCM4328 wireless network card, and I'm stuck on getting wireless internet to work. I have the 2.6.32-trunk-686-bigmem kernel. I run KDE and I have knetworkmanager installed to sort the network connections out. Unfortunately, knetworkmanager cannot find any wireless networks for eth2 (the wireless adapter). There is a wireless network, as other equipment can still connect to it.
I've installed the broadcom-sta drivers according to http://wiki.debian.org/wl. When I run iwconfig, I receive the following output: eth2 IEEEE 802.11abgn ESSID:"" Mode:Managed Frequency: 2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated Bit Rate: 14 Mb/s Tx-Power:off Retry min limit: 7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power ManagementMode: All packages received Link Quality=5/5 Signal level=0 dBm Noise Level=0 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 missed beacon:0
I have Debian 8.2 with KDE 4.14 and everything runs perfect, except for the internet connection. This problem happens randomly when I turn on my machine. Sometimes when the desktop loads, the connection is already settled.
But sometimes when the desktop loads, the wifi icon is still loading and keeps stuck at "setting network address". Since this problem happens randomly I really don't know what is happening here. My wifi chip is this:
My new Squeeze machine detects all of my hardware including the LAN and WLAN cards, but only brings up the LAN card. There isn't even an entry for it in /etc/network/interfaces for me to modify. I tried adding the info manually but then the entire network wouldn't start. I had it configured as a static IP and I know the commands were correct due to them working on the LAN card. I believe that the name "wlan0" was causing the problem, but how else can I bring it up at boot?
So I've always asked this in the past when I get on a Debian system. This makes no sense to me but I just don't see how I restart network interfaces (i.e. eth0) on a standard Debian install. If I change the static I.P. address listed in /etc/network/interfaces from x.x.x.100 to x.x.x.101, I then assume I can simply do any of the following:
- /etc/init.d/networking stop | start - ifdown eth0 - ifup eth0 - service networking stop - service networking start
All the commands above do nothing. My only solution I know that works and implements the changes I've made is a complete system reboot which to me in Linux, is ridiculous. I've struggled with this over and over and nothing I do correctly assigns the new I.P. in the 'interfaces' file to the actual adapter. This isn't my single isolated Debian machine but every Debian machine I can get my hands on. Servers, workstations, VM's, any release, etc etc etc. Below is my interfaces configuration file:
I had some trouble with the netinst CD and I had to install lenny with the 6DVDs instead. My internet connection only works after I edit the interfaces and resolv.conf files manually. So my question is: can I do that from the netinst CD before it actually needs the connection to install everything? (otherwise I'll just need to use the DVDs.
I did a netinstall earlier today (latest version, amd64) on my Dell XPS laptop and ended up with a minimal installation because I couldn't connect to the internet. Now I'm trying to get online without a desktop environment.
I have an Intel Centrino 1030, so I downloaded and installed the firmware [URL].... with a usb, then rebooted. My searches have turned up a lot of instructions involving a utility called iwconfig and wpasuppliant, but these are apparently not installed. I don't really know much about it, but my /etc/network/interfaces file looks rather empty:
Code: Select all# The loopback interface ¬†auto lo ¬†iface lo inet loopback
Shouldn't there be something like wlan0 there? The network card does show up with lspci
I am new to linux and decided to use Debian. I installed it on my laptop and have a few problems.First one is my WIFI.
Laptop type: HP Omen 15 Wifi adapter: Intel Wireless 7260n rfkill list output:0: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: yes Hard blocked: no So wifi is not displaying Kernel: 3.16.0-4-amd64 Debian version: 8.4 gui: LXDE URL....
But they see in rfkill list the adapter.How to make this adapter work?I did this with no result:
nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf in file add: #Fixing a bug that prevents wifi from working on HP Omen blacklist acer_wmi
I would like to learn more about Linux, but before experimenting I need a working system. The plan for me is to run this as my native machine with vms on top of it with other OS.
wireless automatically connects to my home wireless network (linksysn). But suppose I wanted to take this laptop to the coffee house where they have free wifi. I am assuming that my wireless will not automatically connect to any other wifi hotspot except linksysn. So how do i set it up to roam like NM did?
