Debian :: WICD Network Manager Does Not Detect Any Network / Resolve This?

Jan 16, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Network-manager And Wicd Can See But Not Connect To Network

Jul 10, 2010

I recently put Linux on a Thinkpad T40 I got. The wireless card works out of the box--I can see nearby networks. However, I can't connect to mine. network-manager would try (spin spin spin), fail, ask for the password, and then go back to the beginning and repeat indefinitely. This happened to me on a different computer, and on that one all I had to do was use wicd instead of network-manager. So I installed wicd, but it's not working either--it hangs at "Obtaining IP address".

I've found many, many threads with people who had the same problem, but none of their fixed worked for me.

I also tried to get wifi going manually, using this guide, but that didn't work.

Ubuntu :: Change To The WICD Network Manager?

Jan 9, 2011

how to switch to it because i keep getting my connection dropped with the default network manager. he said to make sure i was plugged in via ethernet, purge network manager - then apt-get WICD. the problem is, not even ethernet works once network manager is purged.

so - before i try this i wanna know, can i just download WICD before hand, then purge network manager, then install WICD. OR, can i just install WICD now, then once i purge network manger it will move over to WICD as the default?

how should i go about changing to WICD?

it has to be a driver thing, its happened on multiple installs - on network manager and on WICD

it usually happens (or at least more often) when im streaming a live feed from a website, and it doesnt reset itself unless i turn the computer OFF (not restart) and back on

basically what happens is, with both the network manager and WICD - the wireless just cuts out and stops detecting any network at all, disconnected. i have tried terminating the process and restarting the applications via terminal or run command; i dont know what to do it just keeps happening. sometimes it wont happen for 2 days, sometimes it happens five times in one day.

it really seems to be affected by what im doing on, sometimes i'll have multiple videos going and it starts to chug, and i know when its gonna happen - wifi cuts out. it doesnt DROP, it just stops working, detecting networks.

like i said, even restarting doesnt fix this. i have to quit the application, turn the computer on and off - then boom its right back on when it comes back.

so strangeeee.

so far i've had 3 ubuntu problems in the week i've had it.

1. this

2. "couldnt update .ICEauthority" at login

3. and this made me have to reinstall yesterday - nothing i would install would run anymore, no errors, no processes - i just click the icons and nothing happens.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Network Manager And WICD Misconfigure WEP?

Nov 10, 2010

I have a rtl8192e card and the drivers and everything are set up properly. I can not connect to WEP encrypted networks using network manager. I can however connect using iwconfig and dhcpcd. I uninstalled network manager and installed WICD and have the same problem. It will connect to the access point when it is configured with WPA, but not WEP which we need to use for the other computer. In the status bar of WICD it looks like it is trying to configure the encryption as WPA no matter what I select. I've looked in the config files for WICD and can't see anything that would do it.

Ubuntu Networking :: WICD Will Not Connect Without Network-manager?

Jul 23, 2010

I'm trying to use wicd instead of network manager because I want a "no fuss" way to use wireless on wmii. However, wicd will not find any networks unless network-manager has been run and has connected to a network since startup. If it hasn't connected to a wireless network, the wicd will find no networks, and iwlist won't provide a list of networks either.

This seems to mean that network-manager is doing something to the interface when it connects that needs to be done to make it usable, but I'm not sure what it is or how exactly to find out. I do know that the interface (eth2) will not appear in ifconfig if network manager hasn't connected, which I assume means that it hasn't been brought up. ifconfig eth2 up makes it show up, but I still can't connect with wicd. What can I do?

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04, generic 2.6.32-22 kernel, MacBook 5,5 using the Broadcom STA driver. (more details below)

Code:
*-network
description: Wireless interface
product: BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller
vendor: Broadcom Corporation
physical id: 0
bus info: pci@0000:03:00.0
logical name: eth2

General :: Network Manager - Cricket Broadband Is Down After Installing Wicd ?

Mar 2, 2010

I have a dell insp 1545 windows7-ubuntu9.10 dual boot. the linux os would not activate the wireless network function in the network manager (but the cricket broadband was being detected and was in fact active). well, i did a little looking around and found another network mgr (wicd?, i think it's called... or something like that) and installed it. IT is working, but now the cricket broadband is down, which is my mainstay internet connection right now. i'm thinking that maybe it's got something to do w/the flipflop.sh function but that's just a wild guess.

Ubuntu Networking :: Atheros 2413. 9.10 Karmic WICD And Network Manager?

Mar 27, 2010

I installed 9.10 Karmic 32 bit on a laptop here that has an Atheros 2413 card in it. I could see the network and tried to connect. After 30 seconds of attempting to connect, it simply says disconnected.

Thinking network manager was to blame, I installed WICD and rebooted. I tried to connect to my network, but it came back with unable to get IP address. Okay, fine. So I check my iBook and Ubuntu work laptop both are connected fine. I tried other drivers within the WICD preferences wext, ndiswrapper, madwifi nothing worked. I power cycled the router thinking something might have been borked with my wireless but it's fine.

Slackware :: Remove Net Manager And Use Wicd Only To Resolve Disconnection

Jun 12, 2010

I replaced the trusty old aironet wireless card with a trendnet scanbus wireless card so I could secure my home wireless with wpa encryption. It uses the ath5k module, and the wireless is set up with wicd. The issue is that if I stop browsing for about 2 minutes, the next time I start to browse, it will disconnect, then reconnect no problem. I don't know if this is supposed to be a feature, but it is sure annoying. Is there a tweak somewhere to stop this? The other option would be to use ndiswrapper and use windows drivers, but I'd rather explore tweaking, if possible. If I have to use ndiswrapper, would I have to rmmod ath5k first, or would it be ok to use ndiswrapper directly?

Debian :: Network Manager Can't Share Network Connection?

Nov 13, 2015

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:

[URL] ....

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?

Ubuntu Networking :: Network Manager - Wireless Connection - Dell Laptop Error Wicd States "Wrong Password" Which Is Not True

Jun 11, 2010

These problems just started the last couple of days but I have been using Lucid 10.04 for a month now. My wireless Signal varies in strength wildly. I sitting at home, not 20 feet from my router. I never had these problems before Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04. I am running both Network Manager and Wicd.

Errors:
1. Wicd states "Wrong Password" which is not true.
2. Dropping off-line for no reason, sometimes 3 or 4 times a minute and sometimes it works fine for hours.
3. Firefox 3.6.3 Automatically Checking "Work Offline"!?

I have the Proper Wireless Drivers. I have not changed my wireless settings, channel or WPA for 8 months now so I know thats not 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.

Debian :: Can't Detect WPA Network Despite?

Feb 7, 2011

My driver is rt2870sta. I know it works because wicd can detect a WEP network, but it can't detect my WPA network despite me being right next to the hub. I consulted the wiki and have wpa_supplicant installed.

My /etc/network/interfaces file reads: # 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
I am added to the group netdev as well.

On an unrelated point, my other usb wifi adapter uses ath9k_htc, but it isn't included with the kernel. I thought it was supposed to be?

OpenSUSE Network :: Cannot Resolve Host Names On Local Network?

Mar 9, 2010

I have a mac and an openSUSE box connected wirelessly to a router. From my mac, if I ping the Linux machine by both ip address and hostname "elmo.local", I get a response. If I ping my mac from the Linux machine using its ip address, I get a response. However, if I ping the mac from the Linux box using its name "kermit.local" - nothing!

This means in order to share files between them via the network, I have to use the ip address rather than name, but I'd rather not. When I had Ubuntu installed instead of openSUSE this all worked fine out of the box, so I'm assuming it's a problem with the setup of openSUSE rather than the router or the mac.

Debian Configuration :: Cannot Resolve Local Network Names Only

Jul 25, 2010

I have three Debian systems running, along with several XP laptops, PS3 and two DirecTV systems. I use two of the three Debian systems as media servers, and the third is an older system mostly for playing around with. My home network is running fine with the following nuisance. The two newer Debian (Lenny) systems are <barney> and <mitzi>, the older is named <oscar>, running Debian Sarge 3.1. From either locally or remote login to <barney> and <mitzi> I can ssh into either of the other two systems, however when logged into <oscar> I cannot ssh by name to either of the other systems. e.g. ssh: mitzi: Temporary failure in name resolution..However, from <oscar> I can ping outside my network (e.g. ping www.google.com) with no problems.I can also ssh to the other systems via IP address, just not by name.

I've compared the /etc/ssh/ssh_config, /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/ssh/sshd_config and other files between the two systems and not seeing anything peculiar. arp, route, etc., don't show different behavior between the systems either.

Debian Configuration :: Wheezy - Detect Printer On One WiFi Network But Not Other

Sep 21, 2015

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:

Code: Select allpat@debian:~$ ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 6c:3b:e5:91:ec:0c 
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

The new (problematic) network connection which fails to detect the printer gives the following output:

Code: Select allpat@debian:~$ ifconfig
