Fedora Networking :: FC10 - Wifi Devices To Work On 128bit WEP Network - Linksys Wireless-G And 5100AGN
Jun 20, 2009
I'm having trouble getting my wifi devices to work on my 128bit WEP network. I have a new Thinkpad T400, with an internal Intel PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN. I also have some cardbus cards: a Lucent ORiNOCO Gold, a Linksys Wireless-G, and a TRENDnet TEW-421PC. I have them set up as interfaces eth2, eth1, and eth3. (The TRENDnet isn't recognised as a network card at all, so no interface for it.) I have installed the latest firmware for the Linksys card.
The /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* files are virtually identical for all of them, differing only in the HWADDR and DEVICE lines. So here's the behaviour:
1. The Lucent card comes up just fine.
2. The internal 5100AGN and the Linksys cards won't come up, and watching with iwconfig shows that they're either associated with my AP OR they've got an encryption key set -- but not both.
3. When trying to bring up the 5100AGN, I get the following messages:
iwlagn: index 0 not used in uCode key table
iwlagn: index 3 not used in uCode key table
/var/log/messages shows DHCPDISCOVER requests being sent, but they're bound to fail since the association with the AP with WEP isn't being completed. And yes, the ifcfg-* files really *are* identical except for the DEVICE and HWADDR lines. The /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules file correctly maps the interfaces to the MAC addresses. So why does my antique ORiNOCO card work and thew newer ones fail? How can I track down what's being done wrong/not being done?
I have been running FC8 on this IBM T23 with a D-Link wireless adapter. Using MadWifi this has worked fine with Network Manager disabled. But now I have nuked that installation and replaced it with FC10. Network Manager is nice, and I would like to use it. And it kind-of works. Network Manager recognizes my router and all my neighbor's routers, but I can't connect.
How do I make ntlmv2 and 128 bit encryption work with Samba. i.e. I have a Win 2008/Win7/Vista box with standard settings i.e. forced using ntlmv2 and 128 bit encryption that I want to connect to a Linux server running Samba (RHEL6 in this case). Now if you google you it says Samba should support ntlmv2 with settings like this:
lanman auth = no ntlm auth = no client lanman auth = no client ntlmv2 auth = yes
However even with 128 bit encryption turned off on the Win box it still doesn't work. We use "security = server". Is it maybe a requirement that we need to use security domain instead for ntlmv2 to work? Reading further in man smb.conf.5 "client ntlmv2 auth = yes" is "This parameter determines whether or not smbclient will attempt to authenticate itself to servers using the NTLMv2 encrypted password response." so clearly it's not affecting our samba server.
Reading even further in man smb.conf.5 it says "If this option (lanman auth), and ntlm auth are both disabled, then only NTLMv2 logins will be permited". Why is it then that you need to force NTLM auth in Win2008?
NTLMv2 is only compatible with "security=domain". This means that even if you set "lanman auth=no", and "ntlm auth=no" it will still only auth with NTLM... Here is the Q from Andrew Bartlett * "Use 'security=domain'. NTLM2 session security is not compatible with 'security=server'."
In order to use "security=domain" you need to use the net command to join the windows domain and for that you will need the AD administrator account password which you will most likely not have. However the question still reminds if you would to join the domain would the NTLMv2 work over 128 bit encystations or would you need to disable that one still?
How to get the Linksys: Wireless-N PCI Adapter with Dual-Band (WMP600N) working under FC10 with WEP encryption and linking up to a 54Mb/s Network. Hardware : D945GCLF2 with Intel atom330, 2G memory. As I got to this in a roundabout way, I would recommend that you follow the following steps and see if somewhere along the line your wireless starts working.
1: Get the latest driver from Ralink: [URL] In my case 2009_0918_RT2860_Linux_STA_v126.96.36.199.tar.bz2 (the line starting with RT2860PCI) Unpack, read the README_STA file and follow the instructions. Do: make && make install After this I could only get a wireless connection by doing:
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've got an old laptop wich wireless adapter is a Gigabyte GN-WI01 GS MINI PCI(its chipset is Realtek RTL8169/8110, I believe) and I'm not able to make it run in Wifislax 3.1 Live CD. I downloaded the linux drivers for it and tried to install them following the instructions but when it came the time to execute configure.sh it told me that I had to actualize some kind of packets first(GK+ or something like that can't remember ). I also have another wireless usb adapter that I tried to use too. It's a Linksys WUSB54g v4(chipset: rt2570). I tried to follow a guide I found about making run an adapter like that on Wifislax 3.1 but when I had to "Force ralink rt73 on rt2500" it doesn't appear on my Live CD version, it appears "Force ralink rt73 on rt2570", dunno if it has something to be but I get an error while making it.
I don't know if it has to be with my laptop, my wireless adapters or my way of following the steps. If it has to be with my adapters I would like to buy some new one(not very expensive) that I won't have any problems running it on Wifislax and that will work on my old laptop(cause I just have that one and can't afford a new one).
This may be more suited for the networking forums, but I figured Community Cafe would be well rounded enough for someone to tell me if this is even possible (with minimal configuration that is).There are a few places I travel where I only have a wired connection to the Internet (no wifi), but when this happens is there a simple way to create an adhoc network so wireless devices can route through my computer and to the network? Reason I'm asking is I'm thinking of getting an iPad or iPod Touch which have wireless connections, but in the cases where my laptop is using a wired ethernet connection and the wireless card isn't used, I'd like to create an adhoc wireless network that'll let such wireless devices work.
I was wondering if there's any way for a laptop to be both simultaneously connected to a wireless network, while at the same time acting as an ad-hoc network with local access to serve as a wifi connection for my mobile device, which would be ssh-ing into the laptop and using local resources.
I'm currently running FC9 and I have no problem with my network connection. Now I just installed FC10 on another partition too try it out, but I don't seem to get it work. I disabled the NetworkManager (like in FC9) and enabled the Network. I'm using static IP, when in go in Network Configuration/Ethernet Device/General, the subnet mask is always taking the address of the Default gateway address when I press OK. my subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, and my gateway is 192.168.1.1, but after I press ok they both go back to 192.168.1.1
Recently I installed a backtrack 4 final on my computer, but I couldn't browse the internet by wifi , when I use the slax networktool to analyze the newwork and see what the problem is, the tools showed as below: wpa-supplicant:error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. I also cann't find the libssl.so.0 in the corresponding diretory.
I and my friend use FC10 on our laptops. We want to share our data by creating a wired network between our machines because a wireless router is something what our pockets can't afford. What should I do for it? What type of wires and stuffs do I need? I Googled for some link for doing so in FC10 but couldn't find.
I don't why this is but we have WiFi working on our computer. The only problem is that when I search for LinkSys folder or Cisco folder nothing shows up. Is there something I need to do for that? I have tried to search for it in the folders themselves by doing a search but nothing comes up.
First off I'd like to say if I hadn't put Fedora on my USB stick I'd never discovered that my old laptop had built in wifi, and it was just disabled in the BIOS. I was originally trying to get my Linksys WEC600n card to work. Once I turned on the internal wifi, and took out the linksys card, fedora picked it up right away. My problem is when I try going to websites they won't work, except for FedoraProject. (If I try to navigate to the FP forums it doesn't work either.) I'm not sure what would be the cause of this, so I have no idea where to start.
1. It had my wireless network in the list. 2. I put in my WEP key. 3. It appeared to connect fine. 4. Websites won't load. 5. ?
I recently got a lenovo w510 laptop and I installed openSUSE 11.3 KDE on it. the wireless works fine at home (802.11g WPA2) when I go to work I have tried to set up the wifi for the 802.1X PEAP network but it doesn't look like it even tries to connect.
The work network set up is as follows. non-brodcasting SSID (do I need to tell network manager of this? I manually enter the SSID no problem)
Dynamic WEP 802.1X PEAP blank anonymous identity no CA cert (I suspect this might be the problem) PEAP v 1 MSCHAPv2
I have verified my username and pw several times, as well as the SSID. Just yesterday I helped a co-worker get on the network under ubuntu and it worked like a charm.
The Hardware profile displays the wifi card as a "WiFi Link 6000 Series" It is an intel card.
I have a DSL modem with four ports and a built-in wireless router downstairs. It works great: I have wired Ethernet for my PCs downstairs (all plugged in directly to the DSL modem); my son has great wireless access upstairs (using the built-in wireless in his laptop). PROBLEM: I want to add another, desktop, PC upstairs. I've been trying to use wireless, with a plug-in a Linksys USB stick. It doesn't work worth crap.
I'm considering a) getting another phone jack upstairs, and moving my DSL modem there, or b) stringing some CAT-5 cable from the modem downstairs to the PC upstairs. Putting a wireless PCI card in my upstairs desktop PC might also solve the problem, but the PC only has one PCI slot, and I'd rather keep it free, if at all possible.
QUESTION: Is there any kind of "wireless repeater", where I can a) get wireless access from my DSL modem/wireless base station downstairs, and b) give me some spare Ethernet ports, so I can plug in desktop PC (so the PC can have a wired Ethernet connection)? POSSIBLE SOLUTION: I have an old Linksys WRT54G router that I'm not using. Q: Is there any way to configure it for this purpose? Q: Would it be possible to use it for this purpose if I installed OpenWRT?
how to install the drivers for my linksys wusb100 ver2 wifi card. What I have found so far is that the usb stick uses a ralink driver (rt2870) I have read that I may need to compile the driver on my system but I am not sure how.
I just installed Fedora again, after a long absence. I have been using XP. I am having issues setting up my wireless card Linksys WMP54G. For some reason the card has been recognized, and the interface is there. But I have tried every walk-trough known to Google, and it still won't work. I have been using the GUI tools, but they don't work. I have also been using the command line walk through, and they aren't working either. Does anyone know which files I need to set and what the process would be?
I'm try to setup a wireless network with my linksys wireless router and my HP laptop dual booting Vista & Suse 11.2. I have the vista networked, just fine. Where I can share files and the printer connected to my desktop. But I want to be able to use Suse in the same way, full time and to stray away from Vista. My wife and kids like easy. So I'm trying to transform them and show them something new.
I happened to Fedora 13 that the network manager does not indicate any wifi network and I had to turn off the notebook for a while and then recover, this also happened to me 2 or 3 times on ubuntu 10.04 too. my card is an Atheros AR5007EG.
I'm having some trouble connecting to the wireless network here at home. The PC has a Linksys WMP600N wireless network card, which works fine under several versions of Windows. In Opensuse however, I cannot get it to find the network. Even though my laptop is right next to it, which has perfect connection to the network. The router is a Linksys WRT610N.
I've tried running iwconfig and iwlist scan in the terminal, but the scan returns no results and iwconfig indicates it does not have a connection to a network. I've turned off IPv6 as I read this can sometimes cause issues. I've also tried issuing the computer a static IP address, figuring the DHCP might be causing problems, but all to no avail.
I'm doing a few tests with fedora 15. I'm surprised because they changed the naming way on network devices. eth0 is now called em1.At every fedora I have found the configuration files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts, but today I can't find them.
i'd like to extend that ma intel wifi link 5100 is not detected no more after perform upgrade package( upgrade the kernel too ). when im using command 'lshw -C network' , there is appear to be detected, but not on command 'iwconfig' or even 'ifconfig' it just show nothin. also network-manager no longer show that ma wireless is work properly anymore.
the old kernel : 2.6.25-22 ( my wireless detected and usable ) the new kernel : 2.6.25-23 ( my wireless detected and unusable )
I'm relatively new to Linux, but willing to take a plunge and climb the steep learning curve! I've recently installed Fedora 10 on a spare box I'd like to have running in the lounge by the TV as a TV recorder. Before starting out with MythTV, I would like to get the box running the basics... and hit no major snags with display / audio drivers. I've finally managed to connect to the box via VNC from my macbook over the wireless network. The Apple standard client is slow over wifi, so have started using 'Chicken of the VNC' as the client. At the server end, I intalled vnc-server via yum. I've also tweaked things in ~/.vnc/xstartup so that my default window manager over vnc is gnome.
I have an older laptop on which I have installed Fedora Core 10 (188.8.131.52-117.fc10.i686). I am using a Retail Plus Mini Wireless USB Adapter. I have scanned this forum and someone mentioned that support for this adapter should come "out of the box" for FC10. I have a fair amount of experience with Linux command line configuration but am by no means an expert. I have absolutely no experience, however, with wireless.
NB that via iwconfig I get the output below which is giving information about my (currently for now unencrypted) SSID called "activity_logged". Pardon my ignorance but wouldn't this mean that I have wireless enabled and if so how does one access it through the command line? I would also eventually like to go back to encrypted status and access that via command line.
