I recently installed Fedora 11 onto my computer on top of Linux Mint. Originally I was using Mint's bootloader, but I'm ditching Mint soon for another OS so I'm migrating to Fedora's bootloader to make the transition easier. For a while I couldn't get Mint to appear on Fedora's Grub menu, but during that time I could still access the internet on Fedora. However, once I successfully added Mint to Fedora's grub menu, the wireless suddenly stopped working on Fedora (though it still works on Mint.) I can connect to the network on Fedora but it gives me the awesome "host does not exist" message when I try to ping anything. Any insight as to why this might have happened after I managed to successfully boot Mint from the Fedora boot menu?
I recently installed Fedora 11 on Sony Vaio laptop and I cannot connect to the internet. I used many different kind of browsers and no luck. I am using wireless it is Broadcom 2200 card and i can tell the driver is installed correctly and it says I am connected to the wireless fine. Strange thing is that when i use software update it downloads them fine which means the internet is there. But I cannot goto any webpage with my browser. I run ifconfig and i can even ping websites without problem. I checked my firewall to see if its blocking my port 80 but it was not blocking.
I've finally managed to install Fedora 11 but I can't connect to the internet via wifi. Ethernet works fine though but when I unplug the cable and try to mess with the settings, I still can't connect. I'm currently using Mac iBook G4 and I can see that my wireless card (Broadcom wireless b/g) has been detected but I just can't seem to figure out how to make it work.
On one machine is upgraded from F7 to F10: no problems. On my second machine, I did a fresh install. I can connect to the internet via KPPP, but both Firefox & Konqueror fail to recognize that I'm online. I tried to create a network modem connection, but when I select "new" & "modem", then press the "forward" button, nothing happens.
Chipset: Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82566DC Gigabit Network Connection (rev 02) Router: Thomson TG585v7 Version: Linux Mint 10 Julia, clean install, all updates installed (Ubuntu 10.10) Connected through ADSL. I have a very strange problem, sometimes, when i turn my computer on, it doesn't always connects to internet, this happens very randomly. Sometimes it can take up to 4 reboots to get internet up and running, sometimes its working from the first boot, i figured it has something to do with dhcp.
That's very annoying. The interesting thing is that this didn't happen before. It's just, one day this problem appeared so probably something to do with updates. I was unable to reproduce this problem on my Linux Mint 10 netbook, on Windows 7 on same PC, or other PCs in my apartment. I just reinstalled Mint yesterday, just to check if this problem will go away, but unfortunately, problem still persists.
I successfully booted OpenSuse 11.2 from DVD. But I could not configure my wireless internet connection. YAST said it couldn't configure it because something else was controlling that (Network Manager? something like that)How can I configure this. Related issue. When booting from DVD is there a way to save configuration settings so I don't have to start from scratch the next time I boot from DVD?
I use openSuse 11.xx and all was going fine until yesterday. When booting up now, I can't connect to the internet any more. I takes much longer to boot now as if openSuse tries to look for something that disappeared or got corrupt. All started with the latest safety update.
I am completely new to ubuntu, got fed up with windows, so thinking of switching to ubuntu. But, I have a problem, I don't know how to connect to internet in ubuntu. I have a cable broadband connection, and I have to put in my user id and password which I got from my isp before each internet session on the login page. how can I connect to the internet. I am using ubuntu live boot from my pen drive.
I currently have an old powermac 7220/200 with all ehe origanl stuff except for the hard drive which is now a slightly larger one. I was wondering if it was possible to set up a ubuntu installation on it using a 20g hard drive (I have got one of these going on a 486 running win98, just) and be able to run mac os as a dual boot system, possibly with 9.1 and the origanal mac os that come with it? Unfortunantly I cannot connect this computer to any internet even if I had a card that was compatible with mac os.
I have ADSL Internet and with it updated my F12, 3 days ago. after that I can't connect to internet! when I click on NetworkManager in top panel and choose my connection to connect internet, dispaly a notification that I can't connect to Internet! This is my /var/log/messages Outputs:
I have Fedora 12 Repo installed. The computer has wire and wireless connections but I cant set it up any one of them. I can add a wire connection but it does not connect. I cant add any wireless connection because all the different options dont show up the apply button active. The dual boot does not work also. It only allows you to log on to Fedora Repo. I tried to install the i386 option but it failed to connect. I was using Mepis 8.5 before and I did not have any of these problems when I first installed it.
I have a voip calling client, called smartvoip (URL...). Current the client is available only for windows. So, I suppose it should be possible to get it running on wine.Even though the application comes up, it cannot connect to the internet and log me in.
I have internet connection - you need to open a browser & in the login screen enter your user name & password to get connected. The connection is via a ethernet cable. I have the netinstall cd for debian testing. How to connect to internet & get debian testing installed.
I just upgraded from 8.1 to latest production build and my DSL network connection is failing to connect - and I can't connect to the internet (the crisis ). I have tested the modem & ISP connection, they are fine.
Looking in the syslog after failed attempt to connect it shows NetworkManager reporting <WARN> pppd_timed_out(): Looks like pppd didn't initialize our dbus module & Marking connection 'ISP1' invalid Under the ISP1 connection settings, I have tried All and one at a time of the PPP Settings 'Configure Methods'
Trying to install 10.10 from USB onto my Dell Inspiron mini 10. I am able to boot into the USB, but I cannot connect to the internet - wireslessly or otherwise. When I plug the internet cable directly into the computer that does not work. I had to fidget with some drives to get the Network Manager to work, which it finally did, but it won't connect either - just keeps asking for the password.
I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a system (Details below) and it seems I can hardly do anything. I installed on a laptop that already had Windows XP SP3, creating a dual boot machine with wubi. *DUAL BOOTING IS WORKING FINE* Sorry, hand must have slipped on the caps lock there....
1. How do I access SystemTools?
2. Using network manager, I added a connection for Mobile Broadband, and the connection seems to work, but I still cannot connect to the Internet. Note that previously the USB modem works fine in Windows.
Modem: Huawei E1556 from Claro (Caribbean) Machine: Panasonic Toughbook CF30, dual processor. Harddisk has 5 partitions. Windows is on C:, Ubuntu on G: as a wubi file. If anyone can help, I would geatly appreciate it. Please note that currently, I can only access the internet via the Windows partition, which means if I have to download install new package(s) in Ubuntu to get this working, I'm stuck.
I installed fresh copy of fedora 11. I can't activate or deactivate ethernet from system>Administration>Network. Why is this............I can connect to internet directly by enabling network icon on right topmost corner. Even doing so dosen't guarantee connection at times. What could be wrong here ? Also my network icon shows it is disconnected whenever I start my computer. Cant fedora 11 just connect to the internet while it boots ?

I connect to the Internet via wired ethernet. The modem/gateway is 2Wire mod. 2701HG-B. Service provider is AT&T DSL. Ethernet controller is Realtek Semiconductor RTL8111/81688 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet. When I go to System -> Administration -> Network Device Control it shows eth0 as inactive.
I just installed Fedora 14 on my laptop as a Dual Boot with Windows 7.The problem I am having is that I can't get fedora to connect to my wireless internet.I can access it just fine on the windows side.On my Fedora desktop at the top there a little icon with two little computer monitors there is also a little x by them. Here is whats in the computer as far as networking devices:
Realtek RTL8191SE Wireless Lan 802.11N PCI-E NIC
I also have a:
Realtek RTL8187 Wireless 802.11b/g 54Mbps USB 2.0 Network Adapter
No matter how I configure settings it don't work.If I have to download something on the windows side to fix this please let me know how to get it to the linux partition.
I have a freshly installed dual boot Win 7 and F15. Windows 7 gets on the internet no problem, so does this RHEL/FF machine, iphone too, but F15/Firefox no joy. it's showing me connected to my network just fine. I'm pretty sure it worked at some point because I did my software updates and I have a saved bookmark, though I don't remember exactly.
I've been using 3 different distros for the last 2 weeks. Ubuntu, Fedora and Mint. And i've been using Windows since I can remember. I won't talk here about the benefits I got with Linux, because everyone knows that. But there's something about Linux that keeps annoying me, no offence to Linux users, and I want to ask you about that.
It just seems impossible to install additional software without an Internet connection. I tried: Keryx, Opyum, Suhi,huh?, Synaptics generate download script, yum -downloadonly. I didn't yet: Debian 10DVD I'm not programmer, and my knowledge about computers and operative systems is very small. But installing software on Windows the worst case of dependencies i saw was I had to download just one more .exe file (.NET framework or klite codec pack installers, for example).
question: Is there any Linux distro or any way where packages are managed in a more compact fashion? Suppose I want to use Wine, how I download some megapackage with ALL dependencies or something like that? How system administrators manage where no Internet connection at all (if that possible)?
I am using redhat fedora on a VM player. I set up a static IP address as well as a auto DHCP address. For some reason I cannot connect to either one or even activate or deactivate either one. My VM player is set up to bridge with my local machine.
