Debian Installation :: Network Interface Up But Network Manager Not Working?
Aug 20, 2010
Config: Squeeze, 2.6.32-5-amd64I just installed squeeze and the network is up and nm-manager deamon if working but the Gnome applet doesn't seem to work as usual. It indicates no network although the network is available as indicated by ifconfig and route below. When I switch WiFi on, the nm works flawlessly. When I click on the applet icon it says "Wired Network: device not supported" (or similar, msg in french is
I've been dual booting Windows 7 and Debian on my desktop ever since. But recently I installed Debian again on a new laptop that I recently bought and unfortunately it's being very different from my first successful installation. The first problem is that Network Manager is not picking up internet on the new laptop. The Wireless tab is grayed out, so I can't click it and look for a new one. I've been using Wired internet since, but if I want to take it to work I have to have it be Wireless-able. Currently my Wireless Card is a Broadcom 4313 802.11 b/g/n which I'm fairly sure is supported. The second problem is installing Firefox. On my first installation it worked fine, and the bin file loaded and everything. However, for this second one that's been a completely different situation and the bin file hasn't worked (by this I mean I can't double click it to open it).
I have just installed debian-live-8.3.0-i386-lxde on my old hp530 32-bit laptop
Everything went well but every time I start my laptop I get following message which lasts for approx 1m 20s ...
Code: Select allLoading, please wait... fsck from util-linux 2.25.2 fsck error 2 (No such file or directory) while executing fsck.ext4 for /dev/sda1 fsck exited with status code 8 [¬† 13.941532] systemd-fsck: DEBIAN8: clean,140919/640848 files, 978992/2560942 blocks [ ***]A start job is running for LSB: Raise network interfaces.

... then it boots OK into operating system. so apart from the delay everything is working ok.
I have installed WICD on Debian . I can now access a new a Network Manager screen, which did not exist before, but it does not display/detect any wireless networks. It is like dead. Before installing WICD I did at least have a wireless WPE encrypted network, which was detected, although it often disconnected for no known reasons. Now even that Network has gone and I can't go on line. Can anybody help here? How can I configure the WICDNetwork Manager to detect an existing network or create a new one? In the latter case, would I have to reconfigure the Router settings to setup/connect to a network in Debian? May be I have to do this, because Tor/Vidalia changes my IP address and so my Network Adapter ( Linksys) can no longer connect to the router. Also, when trying to follow troubleshooting leads in this connection, the Terminal screen on Debian ( CMD) would often return a PERMISSIONS DENIED message.
In Googling around it appears that the Network Manager used to have a nice simple (obvious, logical, straightforward, intuitive, easy-to-use... ... can you tell I'm a bit surprised that there's not a simple button to do this, it's pretty common functionality ) option in the IPv4 tab called "Shared to other computers" allowing you to share your network connection with any computers connected to yours... kind of like this:
Professor Google seems to indicate that this may have existed in Debian at one point but, I don't see this option anymore. How do I get it back (or is there another gui way to do this without editing the /etc/network/interfaces file... if there's no other way to do this... that's fine but I'd prefer an easy method of enabling and disabling sharing)?
What I'm trying to do... I have a Beaglebone Black connected via IP over USB. When I'm ssh'ed into the BeagleBone, I want to be able to use aptitude install to grab new packages etc... and that kind of requires access to the outside world. Everything I've found so far seems to to require a modification to the interfaces file but since (according to the interfaces man page) the preferred method is to use the network manager if possible... I'm trying to avoid that.
* It should be noted that I'm running sid with the experimental 4.3 kernel so... maybe in doing so I've shot myself in the foot?
Network manager doesn't recognize nas0 interface and i have problems with using Gwibber, Evolution mail,Empathy, etc Is there any way to add nas0 in Network manager?? I know the solution to remove Network manager, but i need Network manager because i'm often using wireless (as second internet connection).
I used the network manager to configure my eth0 interface.It is working fine. I have found the nameserver entries in /etc/resolv.conf files. But the /etc/network/interfaces file does not carry the ip, netmask, gateway,network and broadcast entries. It only has a entry for the lo interface. where are the settings for eth0 as done by the network manager, stored in case of ubuntu?
I have installed i guess everything needed to add a VPN in my network manager, but its greyd out.
Installed on the machine I have installed
i A network-manager - network management framework (daemon and u i network-manager-gnome - network management framework (GNOME fronte i network-manager-openvpn - network management framework (OpenVPN plug i network-manager-pptp - network management framework (PPTP plugin i network-manager-vpnc - network management framework (VPNC plugin
I have checked the synaptic too and everything seems installed.
I had trouble connecting to a wireless network with openSUSE, so I tried the YAST network manager to see if that fixed it. Not only did it not fix it, but now I cannot connect to any network, wired or wireless. I tried to open the default network manager and it said "Network management disabled". How do I re-enable it?I also have set YAST settings back to their originals with no luck.
i'm trying to install virt-manager , to run a couple of virtual machines, i created a virtual nic vnet0 and bridged it to my eth0, i have configured the /etc/network/interfaces file with proper static ip, but i beleive the network manager is renaming my nic to eth1 and causing all kinds of problems. I uninstalled network manager and now i can ping anywhere in the network, but not outside it. ie google.com
I downloaded Debian Stable last night, and everything appear to go smoothly. Today, I booted up the new OS to try it out for the first time. As I was exploring a few of the features, I decided to pull up a web browser. No internet connection.
No big deal, I thought, as I searched around for a way to connect wirelessly. I couldn't find a way to do so. I consulted one of my more Linux savvy friends, who advised me to pull up the terminal and enter a command to start the network-manager. According to the terminal, no such file currently exists on my system.
This is a bit of a conundrum for me, since I am on my university campus with no ethernet cord to attempt a direct connection. Is there any way to get the network-manager onto my computer? Also, did I mess up somewhere in the installation, or did someone not package the file with CD1 for some unknown reason?
I installed debian 8.1.0 (netinist-i386) in my laptop at work using ethernet (installed mate desktop). At home I do not have such thing, so I should use my phone connection. I can not use wifi due to b43-firmware. I use usb tethering as my only solution. Now I connected to my phone but do jot have internet access in laptop. ping http://www.google.com or 18.104.22.168 or any other address says destination host unreachable,
ifconfig shows usb0 is ok
/etc/resolv.conf: #generated by networkmanager nameserver 192.168.42.129
I am totally new to Linux and have just installed ubuntu 10.10. After configuring the network interface via dhcp I started getting these messages that come in so frequently I can't configure anything else.
Why I am getting this messages and more importantly how do I get rid of them.
today I tried to configure a network route to a host for testing my network interface. Code: route add 192.168.1.15 eth0 As I have to eth interfaces and both interface got their IP from DHCP (192.168.1.11 and 192.168.1.12) and are in the same subnet, I shut the other interface down:
Code: ifconfig eth1 down Then I tried to test the interface by doing a ping to 192.168.1.15. Problem: When I unplug the cable from eth0 (and eth1 is still plugged) the ping still works. Somehow my linux (it's debian) powers up again eth0 and pings over this port.
How can I stop my linux doing this. I just want to have the route added only on the one interface - not the other. Is it maybe some case of a default-gateway?
I have dsl broadband shared through a Modem Bridge Mode forwarded to wireless router which is configured for dhcp lease to the clients(1 Desktop, 1 Laptop).
So, in My Debian Testing Desktop, I have following lines in /etc/network/interfaces :
Code: # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback
Last night while setting up wired & wireless connection in openSuse 11.2 Gnome version via YAST's ifup, I got wireless but lost wired connection (interface eth0). Dmesg shows that eth0 became eth1. I cannot get eth0 back. Is there any way to remedy this situation, eg. get info from the Ubuntu partition in my triple-boot laptop, without having to re-install openSUSE?
I have a laptop connected to the the net thru an adsl modem, when I switch off the laptop network interface,(thru system-config-network) the light of the laptop network card plugged in the router stays on ( green) where as in my pc, when i do the same thing , the light of my pc network card goes off in the modem
I have b43 wireless. In network Configuration on system->administration the interface it appears as inactive it appers in hardware also as b43 associated to wlan0 but i cannot have access to any wireless network. What i have to do to put this b43 to work.
When I install the FC11 by using"Install or upgrade an existing system"or"Install system with basic video driver"mode...Point 1, I can't config the network config ( IP Address ), due to theerror of network manager...Point 2, I can't enter into the text mode to do the installation steps.Remark:The machine is provide Web,DNS, and Mail Server on the NET ( Internet )
Suppose I have both a hardwired and a wireless network connection active on the same system at the same time. Can I tell my browser which one to use? Can I tell other programs which one to use? Or do they choose for themselves> Or does some automatic system protocol select which one to use for them?
I'm a newbie in Linux (ubuntu) environment. Well my prob started as I tried to install several w-lan applications. I tried them out and deleted them again. Till (I don't remember the name of the prog) I finally shoot "network manager". I tried some things like: Second installation of ubuntu to get back internet. Downloaded some deb files and installed them in off-line mode.
But it doesn't work because some not satisfiable things happened now I tried to fix over USB live to fix it no chance. What I need is a possibility to install from USB on my first system or boot system one and USB on the same time to use the internet per switching or something like that. Maybe it's possible to update my system wile the USB system is running? Or is there a possibility to use the ubuntu CD and install all needet packages from there because network manager is already in Ubuntu. I think that all OS company's have to think about that , when they deliver a OS that you can choose or afterwords reinstall progs from the original source ...or what?
So I just did a fresh install of CentOS 5.3 and ran an initial update how ever I cannot get the network manager to start. I found this page on the wiki - [URL]? highlight=(networkmanager) But when I try to run chkconfig NetworkManager on
Fresh install of Fedora 14 from Live cd.Used it for an hour or so, d-loaded some programs, had ti all running great. Wired connection to internet. Had the Network Connection Manager icon in panel. There was an icon saying new updates, alot of them, like 400 or so. Told it to go ahead and up date, left room. Came back hour later was done, said it needed to re boot, so I did. From then on, no internet, not icon, no Network Connection in the drop down list for preferences.
What I have tried:Worked off live cd, again, all works fine, icon, manager, internet all there.In installed version: In terminal, typed service Network Manager, it said unrecognized service.Did yum install network manager. It started to do it, but looked like it was trying to get stuff off mirrors, and of course there is no internet access. error PYCURJ ERROR 6.Of course I can re install, but I figure I will just end up in the same place a few hours from now.
I'm facing some problems with FC11 in my PPC G4. I tried installing and everything went well until it reaches a stage where I'm being prompted to select my network interface.
The options are: wlan and eth0
But no matter which one I choose I still get this error "An error occurred trying to bring up the wlan0 (or eth0) network interface". And if I click cancel, the installation aborts. how can I can FC installed??
this is with both network manager and WICD, a problem i've had since i got ubuntu - multiple wipes and reinstalls the wifi is supported out of the box, the problem i've randomly run into since installing is, it will randomly stop detecting networks "no networks detected"
i've noticed over time as this as been happening, that it usually happens whenever there is a high load - multiple videos going on multiple tabs, videos queued up etc. its never happened during regular browsing - theres always a lot going on when it happens, almost like it collapses. the only way to fix this, is to quit the manager - shut off the computer (restarting doesnt work) and then it comes back after
