Fedora Networking :: Getting The Wireless Network To Start Automagically?
Sep 27, 2009
Where I can get my wireless network running by typing the following lines of code:
But I have to do this every time I boot the machine. Ideally, I want the machine to do this on it's own at startup.
Also, I'm totally new to linux and I don't really understand what the 1st line of code is doing? The 2nd is just to check that the 1st line worked, and the 3rd does the settings for the wireless network I'm connecting to.
If you want to get into why I have to do this every time, then look at my original thread. But I started this new thread just to find out how I can get these lines of code done automatically at startup.
I have 10.04 installed on my HP MiniNote Netbook. If I plug it into the the ethernet directly, all is well, but if I only use the wireless, i get no DNS servers. And one of my wireless networks is on the same router as the wired connection. Also, wireless works just perfectly on my MacBook Air. So, I do not think it is the router. So why am I not getting DNS addresses? How would I set them manually? I can't figure out how to start network manager.
I am having a little trouble connecting to my wireless network. Running Fedora 10 32 bit.I'm trying to connect to a hidden wireless network. I updated the firmware for my driver but apparantly the driver is still not working. Broadcom has a driver from their website for Linux 32 bit systems. Should I attempt to install it? I read a post where the driver is built into the system kernel. If so I would need to blacklist the one of the drivers. Correct?

After an upgrade to 126.96.36.199-78.2.56.fc9.i686 in March, my Atheros wireless stopped working. (It had previously run without a hitch for 9 months). Anyway, I finally got around to working on it today and using the "WiFi misery" thread managed to consistently get it to start manually via these steps:ifconfig wlan0 up iwconfig wlan0 essid netname key xxxxxxxxxxxxx click on "activate" in network device control (gives error msg, but works)
During boot-up, I get "Invalid argument" errors for "SET MODE", "SET BIT RATE", and "SET ENCODE".Currently NetworkManager service is disabled, but when enabled doesn't seem to change any of the above.I'd like to get back to automatically coming up wireless, if possible.
I'm a newbie on Linux and trying to find my feet so please be kind.I have installed vmware on my XP laptop and have installed fedora core 9. Network setting on the VMware is set to bridged. My interface eth0 which is using the wireless does not start on boot. I have to run ifup ifcfg-eth0.The file ifcfg-eth0 had onboot=yes and NM=no, so i changed it so that the NM=yes.However this does not resolve the problem at all. I have put the file back to its original configuration and I have disabled network manager and have had no luck
After a few years of being a fedora user on a large network, I final decided to bite the bullet and dual-boot my home desktop (solely XP at the time) with fedora 10 on Saturday. The installation seemed to go well, but I am having a few problems, which solved themselves at one point but have come back and I have no idea why.
- I installed and re-partitioned with the install DVD, giving fedora 20GB. Having read a few guides and forum posts I wasn't surprised when the wifi and ATI graphics card didn't work. They appeared in the output of lspci, but I couldn't change the screen resolution and no wireless card was available. - I bought a new wireless card a while ago but hadn't had time to put in so used this opportunity to do so (installed it in XP to check it worked) and when I rebooted, guess what, the resolution was what I wanted and I could see all the networks in the neighbourhood. I connected, downloaded/installed the myriad of updates together with a couple of programes through yum and went to bed a happy man. - This morning (my router needed rebooting and after) I was back to the same as before the new wireless card, i.e. low resolution and no wifi. Having no idea what had happened, I check for loose connections, after that the resolution returned and the wifi worked but I can't see my home network.
I picked up a cheap PC the other day for �20 and it came with a Belkin N Wireless USB adapter. I know the adapter works because Windows XP was originally installed and I could connect with no problems. I wasn't able to connect when I installed Kubuntu so I thought I'd see if I could have any more luck with Fedora....so far, not so good! I realise that this is a fairly common problem, especially for this USB adapter, but I've tried dozens of threads here and elsewhere and still can't get Fedora online.I can see the wireless networks in the list, but if I try and connect then I just repeatedly get asked to enter the authentication details, which I know I'm providing correctly.
I just installed Fedora 13 on a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo 3553, after doing some testing in Mandriva 2010.1 Spring XFCE. I am not (I repeat "not") an experienced Linux-user, so maybe I need to get things with a spoon here, but the wireless networking in Mandriva is similar to the one in Fedora, and in Mandriva it worked fine, in Fedora I cant get connected. It just ask me for the password over and over again. Now I am on cabel, and that works fine.
After installing Fedora 15 on my notebook, I found that the one thing that I am unable to do is connect to a hidden encrypted wireless network automatically. I've seen plenty of people inquiring about this online but have found no solution. I can set up whatever I want to in my settings (using the old gnome2 interface setup, the gnome3 interface setup leaves the wireless options unconfigurable for some reason so I can't do anything with the "Network Name" dropdown)
All of my settings have been set up using the network manager from gnome2, but that doesn't seem to translate to my gnome3 desktop. So, is there any way to get the wireless to connect automatically on startup? I know my wireless card is working when I start my computer because it shows some of the networks in the area and I can connect to a few of the unprotected networks. This is the only problem I have with gnome3.
EDIT: from dmesg, I find the following: [485.63] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready
EDIT #2: Going into the network settings just to play around with it, I discovered that the network name dropdown box appears to be grayed out, but now it works when I click it (didn't the first time) -- this allowed me to connect to my hidden wireless network. Still however, it does not connect automatically (system default is the hidden wireless network) and I still have the DNS problem
I have upgraded to Fedora 15 but cannot get wireless up and running. When i switch on wireless and choose the connection it tries for 15 seconds before prompting me for the password and continues like this. When i check the device in my network config it shows as being inactive. Ralink device 3060
I tried fix I pointed here http://fedoramobile.org/Members/MrHappy/troubleshootingNetworkManager fails to see wireless networks with Intel 3945 chipsets(solution deals with the kernel module not with NetworkManager)but nothing to do. My actual problem is I can't see my wireless network but I see just those of my neighbours.I know mine is working because I can connect to using a Mac and windows.
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 recently installed Fedora on an old computer of mine that I pulled out of storage, and I can not get it to detect my wireless network. Previously it was running Windows XP and I was able to get it to connect, but now that I'm on Fedora it doesn't even detect my network. I tried lspci and lsusb but I didn't find anything under network, only Ethernet showing my linksys. I know I must have a wireless chipset, but nothing will show.
I also attempted to yum install ndiswrapper because another thread with a similar problem suggested this, and when it prompted me for my password it wouldn't let me type. How would I go about fixing this?
I have installed Linux for the first time on an old Gateway purchased from work. The system seems up and running, but I can't get connected to my wireless or the wired network. I have tried using the network manager, but it isn't working. I have tried reinstalling Fedora 12 I have the following LSUSB and LSCPI output.
I know that most people are using F12 and F13 but I just installed F10 on one of my machines. The Kernel is 188.8.131.52-117.fc10.i686 and the GUI is Gnome 2.24.1.I have a Trendnet wireless card already installed in the machine from when it ran XP which is in the tew-421pc/tew-423pi family. Is there a device manager/hardware installer that I can use to set up the wireless card or does anyone know of a driver install program for this card?
I am using fedora 14 on lenovo laptops and android 1.6 I created a wireless network on my laptop with create a wireless network. But it was not detected by my android 1.6 phone. Same wireless network created on my MacbookPro is detected by the phone.
Well when I first installed fedora 15 my wireless internet was working fine, and then out of the blue the option to select a wireless network wont show up.
Im sorry to be one of those people who register and there first post is a question, but since fedora 15 is new I couldnt find any information on my issue.
So basically, If I go into Network Settings I have two choices in the left hand tab. Wired, and Network proxy. Yesterday I also had wireless, Since the issue I have updated everything but still have no luck.
I am having this issue on a emachine em350 netbook, I am unable to post a link to it as I get a error since im new and not allowed to post links.
I just installed a dualboot win7/F15 on my laptop (dell XPS 15) and everything seems to be working fine except that when I connect to my network it is connected and the network is accessible (I can visit my gateway/ router) but when I try to visit a website it simply never ends loading it.Internet is working on win7 so it isn't my network's fault.Now I found somewhere that updating could help but since I dont have internet I can't update
I have installed Fedora 10 on my A860 Dell Vostrol Laptop with AR242X Atheros Wireless card. Wireless card worked out of the box and i could detect wireless network and connect to it. But i have a problem that, my wireless connection is not able to get IP address from the DHCP server. Please help me out what can i do to get this working. I am using WEP security and authentication is open system.
I have windows 7 beta installed on the same machine and on that wireless network works fine so i am sure that there is no problem with the wirless network. I am using DIR-300 router from D-LINK. I tried to see packet log on wireshark and there i see that there is no reply to the DHCP discover message. Actually i don't see any RX packets at all. Which is not normal as there is traffic on the network.
I've installed F10 on my laptop since few days and I'm facing an annoying networking issue: the network connection seems to work well when, suddently, it goes down for a while, and then come back.This happens with both wired and wireless (Intel PRO/ Wireless 3945ABG) connection.
I normally connect to a free wireless project, and did have a Windows box until yesterday when I installed Fedora 10. When I was using Windows, I was able to connect to the unsecured wireless network. Now on Fedora 10, the wireless card is working and is able to pick up signals but the signal strengths are markedly decreased and I am unable to see the network which I usually connected to.I really don't want to go back to Windows.
With any download that i start (whether ftp/http/bittorrent/etc..) I get download speeds of no more than about 100 KiB/s...which is decent, but I usually I know my internet speed is max at about 600 KiB/s. If I go to Network Mananger (while a download is in progress), and click on my wireless network, it will disconnect, then reconnect, and I'll get download speeds of up around 600 KiB/s for a period of about 20-30seconds...then, I'm back down to the 50 KiB/s - 100 KiB/s.
Fedora can download at max speed for a little bit, but then goes down to about 100KiB/s for the rest of time (until I disconnect and reconnect again). Why does this happen, and how can I get my speed to stay at maximum potential? Also, Fedora 10 recognized my wireless network card when i had installed F10. But I'm worried that the best driver wasn't used for it. I've found my actual driver that I used on windows vista/xp, and installed that via ndiswrapper, but i don't think that ndiswrapper disabled my old driver... am i right about this? Maybe a solution to my problem would be to disable the driver that came preinstalled on F10, so it can use my newly installed one instead?
I am fairly familiar with Linux but had never ventured into Wlan settings / options / too much. I have compatible card (aetheros) and when running - iwlist wlan0 scanning - I get plenty networks showing up - meaning the card works. When I installed distro which is last night (before I ran update), I had that little bars menu at the top of the screen that showed available networks once clicked upon. Since I like to modify and make my settings better - I removed that little AT&T like bar, and now rebooted after update to find that I can not see available networks unless I use iwliset wlan0 scanning.... .#$*&)@&#(&%# - need I say more.
Two questions - how do you connect to the wireless network via command line? What is that vertical bars GUI tool called so I can find it and run it again? Is there (for the love of god) alternative to system-config-network GUI managment tool for wlan?
