Fedora Networking :: NetworkManager: Wireless Disabled By Default?

Jul 9, 2010

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?

Fedora Networking :: Disabled NetworkManager And Internet Doesn't Work Anymore?

Aug 1, 2011

I recently installed Fedora 15 x86_64 on my new AMD Machine and I'm quite pleased with things thus far.Here's where my problem comes. I mainly bought that machine to help me with Development. More specifically, Virtual Machines for testing purposes. I have installed Fedora 15 x86_64 as a qemu-kvm Virtual Machine and it's working.. for the most part. I am having a whole lot of trouble getting it to connect to the Internet.

My guess is the only way I'm going to reliably do that is to setup a Bridge. Yes/no? However, in order to setup a Bridge I need to disable NetworkManager and that where the fun happens. It completely disables my network connection. I'm probably missing something small, but I can't figure out what I'm missing. I've double checked my ifcfg-em1 multiple times(I've been trying for ~24 hours so far) and all the settings are as they should be.

I've turned NetworkManager off and stopped it(chkconfig and service) and turned network on(chkconfig and service). Theoretically I should simply need to turn off NM and turn on network and things should be fine. no?

Well, aside from adding:

ONBOOT=yes
NM_CONTROLED=no
to ifcfg-em1.

Ubuntu Networking :: Accidentally Disabled Networkmanager

May 27, 2010

Using kubuntu 10.04, I accidentally disabled networkmanager on startup for one of the users of my system. This user now has to manually start networkmanager each time after logging in. How can I make kde run networkmanager automatically again?How this happened: when I started a parallel session as an other user, while already connected via networkmanager in my own profile, kde detected this and asked something along the lines of "There's already a networkmanager running, run networkmanager automatically in the future?" Since I was a little confused, I clicked "no", and that's how things are ever since. I thought there would be some system setting that would allow me to restore this setting, but I haven't found it yet...

Fedora Networking :: Manual Wireless Config - NetworkManager ?

Jul 3, 2009

I have a typical 'linksys' style home wireless router (whose IP is 192.168.0.1) .

If I use DHCP, everything works fine:

Code:

However, if I try to give myself a static IP,

Code:

(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?

Fedora Networking :: NetworkManager Shows No Wireless Network?

Nov 27, 2009

I'm having trouble getting this wireless card to work. I installed the broadcom-wl driver on Fedora 12.

Code:
[xxx@localhost ~]$ uname -r
2.6.31.6-145.fc12.x86_64
[xxx@localhost ~]$ lsmod | grep wl
wl 1278432 0
lib80211 6436 2 lib80211_crypt_tkip,wl

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.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: NetworkManager Doesn't Configure Default Route And Nameserve

Nov 15, 2009

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):

Fedora Networking :: Networkmanager Can See My Local Wireless Network - Asks For The Wep Key

Sep 26, 2009

I've spent AGES getting ndiswrapper to work on FC11 with my USR 5416 card.

Now it's finally working and Networkmanager can see my local wireless network. Problem is when I try to connect and it asks for the wep key, the encryption I'm using is not an option.

My network uses a 64 bit ASCII passphrase. My options when connecting are:

None of these seem to be right for my network and, consequently, none of them work.

Fedora Networking :: Fc12 Networkmanager And Multiple Wireless Cards?

Nov 9, 2010

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_V2.4.0.1_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).

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:

Security :: CentOS 5 - SELinux Denial Of Wicd / Wpa_supplicant - Get Wireless To Work Properly Using Default NetworkManager

May 11, 2010

I am trying to use CentOS 5.4 to set up a secure laptop, largely because of it's SELinux functionality. Unfortunately I couldn't get wireless to work properly using the default NetworkManager so I installed wicd. Initially it buggered up my whole installation but after relabelling files using SEL I can now use my system again. but.. I can't use it with SELinux enabled, as it denies the required accesses for wicd to work. I also get similar SELinux denials for wpa_supplicant. A couple of snippets from /var/log/audit/audit.log -

Fedora Networking :: SSID Broadcast Disabled - Cannot Connect To Wireless Network

May 6, 2010

I have just installed FC12 on my machine - and gone Windows free for the first time ever. Now I do use various flavours of Linux on a daily basis but not from an installation/sys admin point of view so my questions here may seem a little basic but pleas eindulge me if you will!

Now, my network connection works perfectly well under the following scenarios.

1) FC12, wired to router
2) FC12, wireless, SSID broadcast enabled
3) Ubuntu (laptop), wireless, SSID broadcast DISABLED

The only scenario that does not work is FC12, wireless with SSID broadcast disabled.

I can only assume that it is an issue with my USB modem (a linksys WUSB54GS) since the same set-up works fine from my laptop running Ubuntu with an internal wireless card.

Now, I know from reading the forums that it's pretty easy to get around a disabled SSID broadcast but this is an itch I just have to scratch....what the hell is causing this problem?

nm-tool ouput is as follows:

I have tried using wpa_supplicant but I am not sure which driver I am using here - is it ndiswrapper per chance?

(Driver: rndis_wlan)

How I can connect once again to my wireless router with SSID broadcast turned off.

Ubuntu Networking :: NetworkManager Taking Scenic Route - Grayed Out - Error "Network Manager Is Disabled"

May 6, 2010

I've just switched from xub to lub, and I must say it's a lot lot faster. There's just one really annoying problem (I have no idea if this is in any way related to LXDE or if it's just due to 10.04): Network Manager only starts about a minute after the rest of the desktop. So my system boots up, I log in, see the applet, but it is greyed out (it tells me "Network Manager is disabled" or something similar). After a minute (approx), it suddenly comes to life and connects me. Now, I think this only happens when I have:

A) set the wireless connection to "all users"
B) given an empty password for the keyring

But when I cancel either of the two above, it doesn't stop it from happening. I've tried updating etc.. to no avail. I've also tried wicd, but for some reason installing wicd from synaptic doesn't remove Network Manager? Anyway, has anyone seen behaviour like this? Any suggestions for first steps to take to see where it's blocking?

Fedora Networking :: Atheros AR2413 FC10 - D-Link Wireless Adapter Worked Fine With Network Manager Disabled

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.

Network Manager recognizes my router and all my neighbor's routers, but I can't connect.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Without NetworkManager Applet?

Dec 28, 2010

Is there a way of wireless networking without using the Gnome NetworkManager Applet? I want to connect to the Internet using a USB 3G modem and connect to wifi without knowing all of the details of every network.Network manager is pretty good but there seems to be no way of using it without starting an X session and it doesn't play nice with any other networking tool and reminds me too much of a Microsoft application.

Networking :: Networkmanager Does Not Save Wireless Passwords

Jul 11, 2011

I am using gnome's nm-applet as the client for NetworkManager. However, it seems that nm-applet will not save network passwords, so I have to retype the password on each connection. I already have gnome-keyring installed, so I'm not sure what the issue could be. I read online somewhere that secrets are retrieved through polkit or something, but I am completely unfamiliar with polkit and such.

Ubuntu Networking :: HP Pavilion Wireless Enable/Disable Button / "Wireless Disabled By Hardware Switch"?

May 11, 2011

I've had a host of problems since upgrading to 11.04 Natty Narwhal, so let's deal with these 1 at a time.

I've got a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G60 laptop. Next to the power button is a handy wireless on/off button. This has always worked well with previous editions (9.04,through 10.10). first press toggles the wireless off, second press toggles it on.

Not so in 11.04. The toggle off works great, first time. But, it will not toggle back on. Not after any number of tries, not after restarting, not after booting into other OS's (9.10 and Vista) re-enabling it there and then booting back into Narwhal. to further complicate the issue, this feature bypass the network manager, so toggling the wireless off by the switch leaves me showing no wireless adapter in the network manager. I also restarted, switched from Unity to a Gnome session, but the issue still persists.

As my only network options are wireless, this has become a substantial inconvenience.
----
EDIT: so the network util is actually saying "wireless disabled by hardware switch". Also noticed it I enable it in 9.10, reboot to 11.04 (where I inevitably fail to re-enable it), then reboot into 9.10, it will initially be disabled. The key difference is in 9.10 I have the ability to enable wifi using the hardware button. It seems that 11.04 is remembering that wireless is disabled between boots. Is there a place it might be storing this value? If so, I may be able simply to set the value as enabled, since toggling that silly button isn't working.
-----
EDIT 2:
found this thread:"Wireless disabled by hardware switch" bug? - Natty
seems to be a similar issue. I'll be following how that one develops, too.

Ubuntu Networking :: Source Of Disabled Wireless?

Jun 28, 2010

My wireless was working fine for about a year using 9.10 until I installed an update about May 28 2010. After that my HP laptop did not recognize any wireless routers including my Netgear. In early June I upgraded to 10.04. My HP laptop has: product: AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter vendor: Atheros Communications Inc. Dose the following apply when looking for the source of my disabled wireless found at: [URL]

Setting wireless regulatory domain via module option no longer supported. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS enables the CRDA wireless regulatory framework for controlling which wireless channels are usable and visible in a particular location. If you previously had to use the module option similar to that below in /etc/modprobe.d/options.conf to allow access to certain channels in your locality then you may find that wireless will not function at all: options cfg80211 ieee80211_regdom=EU You should remove this kernel module option on upgrade from releases earlier than Ubuntu 9.04 and use the iw*reg command instead.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Disabled / Enable This?

Sep 10, 2010

I updated from Ubuntu 9 to 10 some while ago and can no longer connect to the internet via wireless. The computer is a Medion 96290 with a USB wireless card. Running "lsusb" gives code...

This tells me a driver is installed but it may not be the correct one. I copied this driver from the Windows driver file.

Network Manager shows "Wireless Network" greyed out and "wireless is disabled".

WICD shows net8187b as the installed driver and that the hardware is present.

There is a wireless switch on the keyboard which it was not necessary to use in Ubuntu 9 and is inoperative in Ubuntu 10.

I have searched through and applied many suggestions without success and have posted this problem on a couple of forums, again without success.
