Fedora Networking :: 11 With 4965agn - Configure Wireless Connection Using NetworkManager Right After Booting Up
Jun 13, 2009
The symptom is that NetworkManager repeatedly ask for password to connect to my AP.My AP is secured with WPA-PKI. The problem even happens with Fedora 11 live cd if I'm not quickly configure wireless connection using NetworkManager right after Fedora completes booting up. It means if I promptly configure wireless connection, i'm still able to access Internet. Same thing happens for the first boot of Fedora from hdd. For the second boot or when I dont quickly configure wireless connection when system finished booting up, NetworkManger repeatedly asks for password for AP.
I did try several approaches posted in this forum but problem still persisted. Some of approaches I tried are:
Have been running Fed 11 on this laptop (dual booting with windows) for some time with no issue's. Removed 11 and installed 13. I now cannot get my wireless adaptor to pick up. Drivers are loaded and sees the card in lspci, here is some log outs I have made:-
I just installed Fedora 15 yesterday and can't get wi-fi to work. When I click 'on' on the Wireless label, it goes back to 'off' immediately. When I open the Network Settings menu and disable Airplane mode, the Wireless connection goes on and then off immediately. I took a look at /var/log/messages and it shows this:
I have lenovo thinkpad, T61 with Intel 4965AGN wireless card. It is a N card, it works under N mode in windwos, but not in Ubuntu (10.10). I installed ndiswrapper and got the windows xp drivers for this card. the issue is that i got an error when installing the drivers and since then I cannot use wireless.
The error i got is: Code: Module could not be loaded. Error was: FATAL: Could not read '/lib/modules/2.6.35-24-generic/kernel/ubuntu/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko': No such file or director I unistalled the driver, but now under network connections no wireless connections appear, nothing. I cannot use wirless anymore.
I'm on F14 and can't seem to get NetworkManager to behave. I seem to remember being able to start my machine and see my static address configured right after boot. For some reason, that's no longer the case. When I finish a boot, I'm not getting any address until I log in. I've tried editing the ifcfg-eth0 both by hand and by the system-config-network. I've played with the "Available to all users" checkbox on both the nm config applet as well as the system-config-network gui. I can't seem to get it to behave predictably and give me my static without having to be in a gnome session.
Here's my ifcfg-eth0 from /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
I'm trying to set up ubuntu on my netbook, the brand and make is obscure, essentially, this is a no-name brandless build from china, but a pretty decent lappy. Atom N270 Intel 945GSE based. initially it was equipped with a 3DSP wifi/bluetooth mPCIe combo card, which is proprietary and didn't work on ubuntu (didn't even show up as a device), so I got an intel 4965agn based on compatibility list somewhere in the wiki.
The problem I have is that I see networks, but can't connect at home or at work or anywhere, it just hangs in the connecting status and then throws the authentication popup at me again (pw is all correct). I tried looking around at similar problems, some have wpa_supplicant related issues, but doesn't seem to be the same as mine.
I tried creating an unsecured network using my macbook's airport, and same thing happened with ubuntu... hangs in connecting status then drops, so it doesn't seem to be WPA. I don't have the device on me to do all the iflist iwlist checks for you, but if you could give me some clues, I'll post back when I get home.
I'm using Fedora 15 with KDE, and in the NetworkManager settings I can't set my Ethernet connection to be a System Connection. The box is greyed out. I assume only root can enable this option, but GUI apps typically ask for an administrator password. I did add my user to the "Administrator" group when I installed and I can use sudo and all that.
i just successfully downloaded and installed ubuntu koala (9.10 i think...) and its a great interface. i am just having extreme difficulty trying to set up the wireless connection. when i log back in osx, i am able to access the router and use the internet as i am doing now when i post in the forum. i am just trying to learn how to configure the wireless in ubuntu as well. have someone who has successful been able to connect wirelessly on an imac, or apple laptop in ubuntu.
Yesterday I did an upgrade and today my box is unable to connect to the internet.
I have tried another cable, it didn't help.
Basically NetworkManager does not connect eth0 to the network, if I try to run ifup from the command line I get:
I can see in network configuration settings, that the device has been correctly detected and eth0 interface is correctly activated, yet when I try to uncheck the box manage by NetworkManager and start it manually, it tells me that the cable is disconnected... I've tried two different cables, different ports on my router - no help.
I'm trying to configure my Linksys WRT54G2 wireless router for my DSL connection. I select PPPOE as the connection type and when I go to connect I get the message cannot get ip address from ppoe server.
I have a typical 'linksys' style home wireless router (whose IP is 192.168.0.1) .
If I use DHCP, everything works fine:
However, if I try to give myself a static IP,
(I also never understood why the DNS server should not be the real dns server address (some external ip) rather than the router's address? but that is what gets set automatically when using DHCP)
So using manual, it connects, but then the internet doesn't work. The only difference I see when I go to "connection information" when connected with dhcp vs manual is in dhcp mode there is a "default route: 192.168.0.1". Is that the problem? How do I set this "default route" / what is it?
The card is recognized by System--admin--network as the correct card (BCM43XG) and assigned eth1. However, NetworkManager shows no wireless network. I have a great signal on the same machine if I boot into a Windows partition.
I have just installed Fedora 13 on my Lenovo Ideapad S12 (company laptop, evaluating Fedora for companywide use on all laptops) and a facing a weird problem with KDE4 and NetworkManager / knetworkmanager. The laptops wifi card is a Broadcom BCM4312 and I have successfully extracted the necessary b43 firmware. The b43 module loads on boot and the wireless card is activated and ready to use. However, NetworkManager doesn't seem to agree and has wireless disabled by default every time I reboot or even logout / login. I have to check the box manually after which it automatically connects to my wifi network at home.
Any idea where I can check that box automatically on boot?
I am deployed to Iraq and the Earthlink ISP here uses PPPoE to configure a connection to their wireless broadband. His english skills are pretty good and from what I gather, he's got a DSL connection that he's trying to connect me to. He showed me how he does it on a Windows machine but I can't figure it out on my ubuntu laptop. That windows machine didn't need any IP addresses or server names. It only used a username and password to connect. Of course a strong wireless signal detected was also pre-requisite.
I know my laptop works because I've had great success with it here lately, just not on the Earthlink service.I see their wireless is broadcast and I can connect to it. I just can't figure out how to post my credentials and authenticate.I don't see a way of entering my username and password because I don't know how to install (or configure) for PPPoE.I did use the pppoeconfig and got to the part where I add my username and password, but most of what's going on up to and after that, I do not have the knowledge base to use. So I figured that allowing the defaults and recommended settings would be acceptableYou'll have to forgive me if I've asked another dumb question here. I'm another one of those Linux enthusiasts who is learning and I'm just not willing to switch back to MS just to get internet while deployed.
yesterday I installed openSUSE 11.2 on my laptop. But I'm having problem getting the wifi configured properly. During the installation I got the message "No network running" (which I also saw after the installation when using the network configuration module of YaST after switching from ifup to NetworkManager). After installation NetworkManager seemed to work fine, it detected my wifi card, found the network, and I could even connect to it. Then the problems began, no Internet connection. The first thing I tried was pinging Google which yielded an "unknown host" message. So I checked /etc/resolv.conf, to look for the DNS servers, which where missing.
I added them manually and tried again. Still no luck, so I started pinging my router, which worked, tried again pinging Google using one of there IP addresses, which failed. So I ran route to find out which routes where being used, this one gave an unexpected result, because it only showed the route to the local network (I'm not sure about the loopback one, because this was also a lot of times missing when testing):
I'm using OpenSuse 11.1 (but it applies also to 11.0) on a Dell XPS, NetworkManager and scpm to manage profiles. I configured wireless network without problems and all runs perfectly. The annoying problem is that the wireless connection doesn't start at boot. Also by clicking on the NetworkManager applet networks are not displayed
But, as soon as I launch network configuration from Yast without do anything other, magically the wireless network is recognized and the PC connects to it.
It seems that the network configuration from Yast activates NetworkManager to connect or it activates the interface or the hardware.
I'm having problems getting two wlan cards to work under Networkmanager with F12. I have an old server that I wanted to move, so thought I'd get a USB wlan device for it. before setting up the server, I thought I'd try the USB (an Edimax EW-7711USn - Ralink 2870) on my laptop first. My laptop has an inbuilt ipw2200 card that works fine under NM.
So I've down loaded the DPO_RT3370_LinuxSTA_V220.127.116.11_20100831.tgz file from Ralink, and built the driver (after changing the os/linux/config.mk file for the WPA supplicant settings). I also install the rt2870 firmware (from Ralink) in the /lib/firmware directory. I also blacklisted the rt2800usb driver to ensure that that didn't get loaded.
The problem I have is that I can now get both the ipw2200 device and the rt2870 devices 'working', but they both try to assume the same IP (I want fixed IP's and not DHCP for them) - what is the way to configure the 'devices' so that the rt2870 device is always given IP x and the ipw2200 given IP y?
I think my problem is really my lack of understanding where/how NM handles the files under the GUI config. I used to semi understand how the old network config tool set up it's files and where they were etc. But with NM I'm a bit lost as to how it equates the device with the network settings. Once I have the device working with the correct driver on my laptop, I'll look to apply the same settings on the server (which is then FC13 - but should be simpler as it doesn't have an existing wlan interface).
I have problem with my wireless GSM connection , my notebook has built-in Toshiba (in fact Ericsson) F5521gw wireless modem , it is detected and usable by default without installing additional software.Problem is that I can connect flawlessly only once after switching on notebookif I disconnect manually I'm not able to connect again, i have to reboot my computer or another solution which allows me to reconnect is closing and opening lid (putting notebook in suspended state)I'm using Toshiba Tecra r850, openSUSE 11.4 x64 on Gnome 2 DE, using NetworkManager and nm-applet /var/log/messages after using disconnect from nm-applet:
Code: Sep 8 17:04:39 linux-b5nl pppd: Terminating on signal 15 Sep 8 17:04:39 linux-b5nl pppd: Connect time 243.2 minutes.
I have a wireless connection to the internet, as well as a wired connection to a local network. When the wired connection to my local network is enabled, the wireless connection to the internet no longer works until I disconnect the ethernet cable.
(This setup used to work just fine when I was using Windows, but now doesn't seem to work. I wasn't using IP aliasing in Windows, but I am now, which may be causing the problem.)
My original connection to the internet was a wired one, at eth0, so once I got wireless enabled (on eth1), I created an IP alias to my local network of eth0:1 which is a static IP on my local network. The only configuration I did at all was to add a file named /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:1, with the following contents:
And NetworkManager just seemed to pick it up automatically - I didn't change anything else in NetworkManager or anywhere else.
(Also I use 'service NetworkManager start/stop' entirely rather than 'service network start/stop' to manage my connnections. i.e. I did 'chkconfig network off' when setting everything up initially.)
I'm using the Network Manager DBUS API for establishing a wireless network connection. For some unknown reason , only the code for establishing a wired network connection is available. I've tried everything i can to get it running. but i'm not able to. here is the code that i'm using right now.
I have recently installed Fedora 13 on my laptop, an Acer Aspire One D150. The laptop has an Intel 4965agn wifi card which worked flawlessly under Fedora 12. Now however it keeps disconnecting every 10 minutes, even if I browse the web. On top of this, it also becomes very hot, so hot that you can feel it through the plastic case.
As I reported in this bug:[URL].. root is not able to start an openvpn-connection via the "nmcli"-command to control NetworkManager, whereas my user does not run in any problems with this command. My error output when starting as root is as follows:
Code: # nmcli con up id "my-openvpn" Active connection state: unknown Active connection path: /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/5 state: VPN connecting (need authentication) (2) Error: Connection activation failed: no valid VPN secrets.
Does anybody know what to do about this strange behaviour? The vpn-secret seems to be stored in the gnome-keyring and in the /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/my-openvpn simultaneously. But root cannot access any of these. Why this is important? I'm trying to set up a dispatcher-script to automatically start openvpn on eth-connection. but this does throw the exact error from above (no valid vpn secrets..).
can anyone tell me the difference between the linux ad-hoc connection and window ad-hoc connection .....is it possible to make ad-hoc connection in fedora 14 if it so. how to setup ad-hoc connection between two laptop.
