I find it interesting that the only CLnetwork manager is nmcli(). Are there others you know and love?
I have been trying to use nmcli(), and I am having some difficulty.
When I run...
I get a great list of available wireless connections, but it seems to me I am not getting the 'right' information, or I do not know how to implement the information I am getting.
When I try to connect using the
It tells me, 'Unkown connection'.
So I wonder in the devices list is the SSID, in the single quotes, not the id the 'up' command requires? Or how do use the SSID? As far as the UUID, this option works for me, but I can only see the UUID if I had already once before connected to this connection. Is there any way to see the UUID of a new connection?
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?

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 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 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?
running Fedora 15 on a Dell Inspiron 1521. When I first installed Fedora on this laptop, I was unable to connect to a wireless network because I did not have the firmware installed, so being a good little enthusiastic new user of Fedora, I set out on a quest to locate the proper firmware. I had success on that front, however, in the process of installing it, the option to connect to any wireless network disappeared. It isn't that there is no wireless network in range, rather, the entire wireless option itself has vanished.
I installed the 64-bit version of Fedora 12 on my MacBookPro5,1, and I am unable to establish a connection to my wireless network, which I can connect to fine with I boot the computer into Mac OS X. Here is my operating system information:
$ uname -a Linux tosh 184.108.40.206-174.2.3.fc12.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Jan 18 19:52:07 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Here is information about the PCI devices available on the system:
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.
The problem with my wireless network. I have Dell DV6 Pavilion 2115 eg laptop and i installed Ubuntu 11.4 and internet and wireless worked, until i reboted my system it has disapear. I cant no longer to connect to a wireless network. It dont shows me any wireless network. My wireless card is Atheros AR 9285 802.11b/g/n Wifi Adapter
I just switched from Ubuntu to Fedora 13 because I was unable to get Ubuntu to connect to wireless networks. I tried everything suggested in help and forums, and kept getting "Bad Password" with WICD and Network Manager. Now, with Fedora...I still can't connect.
Problem #1: The guide says to "...make sure that the relevant wireless interface (usually eth0 or eth1) is controlled by NetworkManager," and that I do this via: System>Administration>Network
However, there is no Network option under System>Administration.
Problem #2: I open Network Manager, which displays a list of networks. I click on mine, configure it with WPA and the right password, and it fails to connect: "The network connection has been disconnected."
Problem: I run WPA2 Personal encryption on all my wireless devices. At work we use Cisco WAPs and I can connect flawlessly, simply by entering the password. At home I use Apple's Timemachine, which is basically an Airport Extreme A/B/G/N router.
I go to Network Manager and choose "Connect to Hidden Wireless Network". I enter in the SSID of my home wireless, choose WPA2 Personal, and enter in the password. After ~1 minute Network Manager spits back a window requesting the WEP key.... But I'm not running WEP. This is extremely frustrating. I delete the network and try again... same behaviour. My assumption is that this may be isolated to Airport Extreme network devices but I'd really love to find a fix. Just FYI: I have a MacBook Pro and a system running Vista that connect without a hitch.
On my laptop HP presario, I installed Ubuntu 9.10 (Wubi). My Windows Vista connection works fine, but the Ubuntu cannot find my wireless network. My network card is the Belkin Wireless N (F5D8233-4v3). Do I have to use the ndis. On my desktop here, (wired) Ubuntu found my card without me having to do anything. What should I do. (unistall ubuntu and make do with Vista?)

I upgraded from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 this morning, and I can't connect to my wireless network. The Network Manager shows it's there, with the correct SSID and security key and everything, yet it still won't connect. I'm using a D-Link DI-524 Wireless Router that I've never had any problem with before.
I'm having a little issue here with my laptop. I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick/Meerckat on my Lenovo Thinkpad T61p about 3 hours ago and it can't seem to connect to the wireless network... I've had the same problem when I moved from Windows to Ubuntu on my desktop but I've been able to fix it completely. The thing is I can't remember how I fixed it :S So, I updated my system, downloaded the additional drivers. Also, I cna connect to the ethernet network. To fix my desktop, I used some command lines that someone posted in a thread about the wireless keeping disconnecting... I just can't find that post though :S What I remember about the post was that there was someone who had posted a thing with like a parabolic thing around he wireless adapter (LOL)
Earlier in the week, I installed 10.10, but had awful problems trying to get the wireless networking working. Upgraded to 11.04, and wireless is sort of working. However, I am unable to connect to my wireless network. It sees the network, but just keeps asking me for the password. I enter this (I have checked that it is correct), but it just prompts again, after a little while. Networking through network cable works fine.
Wireless network is set up to use WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK. I have checked, and I do have wpa_supplicant loaded.
I upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 from 10.10 a couple of days ago and now I cannot connect to my wireless network. I can see all the networks and I managed to connect to something called BTopenzone, just to see if I could connect to anything, and that worked. I also run windows 7 on the same computer and setup and it connects fine to my wireless network. Before I installed the Ubuntu upgrade I could connect without any problems. I've had a look at the settings for the connection in Ubuntu but I don't understand them.

Hey I just installed linux on my computer and it will not connect to any wireless networks, it will detect them and say try to connect but for some reason wont. It does connect just fine to a wired network.
I have Dell DV6 Pavilion 2115 eg laptop and i installed Ubuntu 11.4 and internet and wireless worked, until i reboted my system it has disapear. I cant no longer to connect to a wireless network. It dont shows me any wireless network.My wireless card is Atheros AR 9285 802.11b/g/n Wifi Adapter.
I've just finished doing the basic install of Ubuntu 10.04. I have the SSID, password, etc.set up for my wireless network. The network icon will show the PC is connected to the network but I can't connect to the internet. I'm using a Zoom 4411 Wireless-N USB adapter which works fine under Windows. I DL'd the driver files (rt2780) from Ralink using the Windows partition but they need to be compiled(the topic for another query.)Since I can't connect, I can't get Buildessential or Checkinstall.
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..).
