Nov 27, 2010

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Working Despite Icon Showing 100% - Asked For Keyring Password Twice

Dec 15, 2010

Until this morning, my Wireless had always been working fine. This morning I rebooted after an Ubuntu update and now:

- I am asked twice for "enter password for keyring 'default' to unlock" whereas before I was always just asked once.

- The connection seems to be established, with the icon showing good reception and the tooltip reads "Wireless network connection 'mywifi' active: mywifi (100%)

BUT I can not connect to any website or ping the machines of my network, even by IP address. All of the other computers around (Mac, Windows) can use the Wireless as usual. My Wireless is WPA-PSK TKIP hidden SSID. My Ubuntu is 10.10 Maverick.

Ubuntu Networking :: Campus Wifi Network Not Showing Up In Maverick?

Oct 12, 2010

I upgraded to Maverick over the weekend from Lucid, and at school yesterday, I could no longer connect to the campus wifi network in my office. I have no problem connecting to the wifi network at home, and my phone still sees and connects to the campus wifi network, so I think the problem is with my laptop (Gateway T-6345u), which doesn't even detect the campus network. As of last week, it connected automatically, and now it can't even see the network.

Fedora Networking :: Showing Wlan Icon In Upper Right Hand

Jan 12, 2011

I've been using Fedora 13 for a few months now on my desktop and since ethernet is not a choice I needed to use a wlan adapter. I did a little research and ended up using a Linksys WUSB54G ver. 4 which worked great (plug and play, no ndiswrapper or any other configuration required) on my wireless g network, using WEP protection. About a week ago I started looking for methods of upgrading my system because. well I just like being somewhat current.

Anyway I used a Fedora 14 Install DVD and used the upgrade option and it worked. All my settings (seem) to be exactly the same as my Fedora 13 settings were and the appearance and location of files etc. are all the same. Now, for some odd reason, to me at least, Fedora isn't showing a wlan icon in the upper right hand (by the way I'm using GNOME) corner like it used to and doesn't seem to have configured my wlan device correctly. I ran lsusb and it shows the device ID (13b1:000d) and the name (Linksys WUSB54G v4 802.11g Adapter [Ralink RT2500USB]) I'd just like to get my adapter working again like it did in 13. I have kernel version

General :: Windows - Find Out Which Authentication Protocols A WiFi network Uses?

Aug 16, 2011

I want to connect my Debian Squeeze machine to my school wireless network with wpa_supplicant.

I think the network uses 802.1X authentication, because when the other students connects to the network for the first time in Windows they enter their username and password then the connection is established. I have asked the the IT staff but they do not known what 802.1X, PEAP EAP etc. is and just say "Enter the login details in the box!".

If I bring a Windows 7 machine to school and successful connects to the network, is it then possible for me to extract the information [and extract a certificate if used on the network] from Windows somehow so i can setup the wpa_supplicant.conf correctly on Debian?

The information I want to extract is which protocols are used, like PEAP,MSCHAP etc.

Ubuntu :: Multi-user Network Manager Applet Icon Not Showing

May 11, 2010

My family uses a computer running Ubuntu 10.04. We each have a separate login. This computer connects to the internet via wifi.

A behaviour which I have noticed is as follows - the first user to log in gets the network manager applet icon. So they can control the network connection. Any other user that subsequently logs in does not.

Now this is a real pain in the butt as sometimes our wifi connection drops and I might have left my wife logged in and used the 'switch user' function to get access to my login. The only way I can access the applet is by switching back to her login.

Is there any way to make this appear in everyone's login's at the same time?

Ubuntu :: Disconnection And Connects To Unavailable Wifi - Authentication Required By Wireless Network

Jun 8, 2010

When my router switches off... the wifi signals go off... then why the hell ubuntu keeps on connecting to that very wifi like hell and when doesnt connect shows the prompt to manually connect... with the wifi key already filled in... whats the use of saving the key when it has to ask the question from me either to connect or not?? and if its isnt available... just wait when its available.. and for the prompt,i have only option to cancel(because wifi isnt available at that moment if i select connect it again tries to connect like hell..which it cant) and if i cancel it wont auto-connect when wifi does get available! what the heck?

Windows has this done the right way... when the wifi isnt available.. it dissconnects silently.. and when it becomes available connects silently.. why isnt this been done this way in ubuntu??

Ive attached an image..one can see in the image that it says "authentication required by wireless network" when there isnt any.. as router has gone down!

And the second thing i want to report is that there is no way to report this bug from ubuntu... the launchpad.net talks of going through bug reporting process which is done against a definite package... now how does a user know which package would be causing this error?? there should be a more clear process of reporting such bugs to ubuntu team... which a common man using ubuntu( ubuntu says its most user friendly of all distros right?) can report..

Ubuntu Networking :: Icon Not Showing Up After Making The Ip Static?

Mar 3, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx.

I intended to make my IP static by opening the file network interfaces "sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces" and adding the following

"auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static


and then restarting the network "sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart" The static ip setting is successful except for the warning "warning produced: SIOCDELRT: No such process" When i enquire for ifconfig the ip was set static to and i was connected to the internet and everything works fine. But when i restart the system the network icon at the right top corner disappears and am not able to get connected to the internet.

And when i remove the block of code mentioned above and restarted my system, everything works fine. How can i make my ip static? What is preventing my static ip configuration.

Fedora Networking :: Broadcomm Driver Not Showing Up As An Option In Network Manager

Oct 2, 2010

a Toshiba L650 laptop, and installed F13 x86-64 on a disk partition using install DVD. The wired ethernet on this is Atheros AR8152, and the Wireless is Broadcomm 4313. Both these devices are not supported by default. So, as per instructions on the Linux Wireless site, and some guidance on this forum, have downloaded the Broadcomm driver tar on another machine, copied it onto the Toshiba laptop using a USB device, and then extracted, and ran the b43-fwcutter. The subdirectory /lib/firmware/b43 is created and has approx 3 dozen files. However, the Broadcomm driver is not showing up as an option in the Network Manager (system-config-network) or in the lsmod command output. I tried to manually add it by doing modprobe b43 command - it then begins to appear in the lsmod, but the option to add the Broadcomm wireless driver during a "New wireless Hardware" is not appearing still. I think, at an abstract level, I need to somehow "tell" the system to add the Broadcomm driver - am just not sure how to do so. On the other hand, the Atheros AR8152 has no driver as of now, so the wired Ethernet is also not connecting. how I can download all the required files on a different machine, and then install it on the Toshiba laptop?

Ubuntu Networking :: No Wifi Networks Showing Up?

Feb 27, 2011

got a dell inspirion 15r (i think), and it comes w/ win7 (I HATE Win7) so i made him let me dual-boot with ubuntu maverick meerkat. (he wouldn't let me get rid of win7 cuz thats what his parents use.) It installed successfully, so we booted into it, and there was no wifi networks. I thought it was because wifi was disabled so i press the button i think its F5 but still nothing. I thought it might have been the comp but i booted into win7 (Que the Beethoven's fifth)... and it worked in win7 (thats a first) can someone help me. Oh and i forgot i used that terminal command to unblock wifi

Fedora Networking :: F13 WiFi - Network - Can't Connect To The Internet

Sep 25, 2010

I just installed Fedora 13 64bit Gnome, but I can't connect to the internet for some odd reason.

If you look at the image below:

I have marked the network icon, but on my desktop I don't have that icon for some reason...

Since I'm new @ Linux(Picking it up again) I went to the services and checked 2 services:

The network manager service was running but the status said: This service is dead.

And the network service was also running but status was: The status of this service is unknown.

I also went to the Administration menu and checked Network, the first tab showed no devices, but when I went to the hardware tab it did show my card.

I also don't believe that this is hardware problem since the card worked just fine under Fedora 9 or 10(Don't remember).

So if anyone got some solutions for me it would be great...

Some related hardware info:

Fedora Networking :: No Wifi Network Connection After Upgrade F13 To F14?

May 29, 2011

Wifi network operated perfectly with f13. Upgrading f13 to f14 did not show any problems except for networking. It seems that the wlan0-link is not ready. Consequently no network information about adresses can be obtained. Tried with network tools to activate wlan0. No reaction Tried to deactivate Networkmanager and bring network up with

service NetworkManager stop
ifconfig -a
ifconfig wlan0 up
dhclient wlan0

No reaction on network. The NetworkManager icon disappears which is understandable.

This laptop arrived in the post yesterday and everything on f15 works out of the box except wireless.Digging out an old ethernet cable I was finally able to get wireless working by doing the following: First install ndiswrapper. We'll be using rpmfusion for this so you'll need to


After a reboot it all loaded and worked fine, just remember to make sure the little light on the f12 button is blue, not red. This guide should work for other laptops and other distros as well (though obviously you'll likely need a different driver file to start off with).

Networking :: Using Ethernet To Power WiFi Network And Setting Up WiFi?

Aug 23, 2009

I have an old PowerBook G4 that I would like to use as a 'dummy' computer for learning wireless penetration (WEP/WPA attacks) more effectively. I had been using a wireless router, but I gave it away I can use Mac OS X to share an ethernet connection over wifi, but this is _very_ un-configurable. You get two options only, WEP and a key-length. So, I would like to install someway to make this wireless connection more configurable.
