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?
Basically, I need a command line solution for sending an HTTP POST request essentially clicking on a button. For future reference, it'd be helpful to know how to send a POST request with, say, a username and password if I ever find myself in that situation in another hotel or airport.
I hosed my installation of F14 by installing from some "experimental" repositories. Now I only get XDM at startup and an xterm on login. This would be fine if I could use yum to do some updates, but I have no network connection. I have been over the man page for nmcli dozens of times and none of the options there seems to start anything. I have also tried starting dhclient or using:
ifconfig eth0 up Nothing. So, is there a reliable way I can just connect to the network? This shouldn't be so hard.
I am trying to do a command line installation.Finished the installation and my wireless card wasnt working.Did a "sudo ifconfig wlan0 up" and got it working.But for some reason wireless-tools is not installed thus I dont have iwconfig, iwlist, etc.The wireless works and connects fine off a liveUSB.So I am going to give info from this liveUSB run and maybe someone can suggest how I can set the right settings on the Command Line Installation I presume in the etc/network/interfaces.
I have a CentOS 5.5 server running currently with a Netgear gigabit ethernet card and for wifi I have a wi-fi card with the chipset: RT2860.Now I have gotten the ethernet card and wi-fi card working but my main question is: How do you bridge the connection between the ethernet card and the wi-fi card to create a wireless network with a hidden ESSID if possible and WPA encryption? (So the server basically acts as a wireless router as well as doing all the other stuff I need to do on it).
I'm new here but have been using different distros for a couple of years. I ran into this problem like a year ago for the first time and I really would like to solve this ( with your help now). I've already used hours trying to figure this out and seeked solutions online. So first things first:
- I want to connect to a wireless access point from CLI (for many different reasons) - I'm using Fedora 13 with KDE and Gnome some specs:
Ive been struggling to configure a wireless interface on Fedora 9I need to configure wlan0 command line only with NO display managerIve tried setting up /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 with the right information, doing dhcpbut no ip is retrieved. Checking the dhcp server logs on the DHCP server - no request is received.The link light on the wireless nic is not on either. iwconfig shows it has an Access point associated and an ESSID but im not getting back any IP.There seems to be very little documenta on how to set up wireless nics command line only on Fedora
For some reason Ubuntu 8.04 doesn't save my college network settings, so I have to connect manually each time. This is what I physically have to do to connect:
1) Click on network manager icon in the notification area 2) Click "connect to other wireless network" 3) Type in "NETWORK_NAME" into network name area field 4) Select WPA enterprise under wireless security 5) Type in "USERNAME" into username field 6) Type in "PASSWORD" into password field
So what I would like to know: is there any command line equivalent for the above six steps? I would like to write a script which will carry out the above six steps for me automatically, using the parameters NETWORK_NAME, USERNAME and PASSWORD.
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 set up Samba using command line terminal, and my network does not work. I have Samba username and keyring passwords all set, then I go to gui system-config-samba, and my samba user profile password is incorrect. In the past, I have used a 10 letter password, however, every time I boot the computer, I have to go back in and re-enter the password.I wonder if samba is truncating the password because it only accepts an 8 character password? I have deleted the user, and added a new username, and it is still doing it.
If I go into the gui and re-enter the password, usually I can get the network back up with my windows machine. All of the parameters are correct, I use the network to transfer files from my Windows to my Fedora drive all of the time when it works.
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 run Ubuntu, and it has a nice GUI widget thing that connects me to my home wireless network when I boot. I don't have a problem with that. But suppose I don't start X, and boot to a recovery console for some reason, like I did recently when my graphics were broken after installing Karmic. In that case, my computer won't be connected to the wireless network until I log into X normally. So I can't apt-get anything or anything. It's very annoying. And I don't know how to connect to my wireless network.
I know my wireless network SSID, and I know my WEP key or WPA passphrase. How can I log onto the network with commandline tools? Is there some basic program that I can just run "networkmanager <myssid> <mywepkey>"? I looked at the iwconfig man page and I honestly couldn't figure out how to simply connect to my network. Once I figure out how to connect to the network with command-line tools, where can I put an "autoconnect" script so that it will connect during startup, like it should anyway?
What I don't understand is, why the Ubuntu network manager nm-applet, doesn't just work as a front-end for more basic networking stuff. I don't see any reason why it should require you to start X before working; it could be a daemon that runs at startup, and there could be a config-file somewhere, but it doesn't even start running until I log onto gnome.
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'm thrilled using wicd to connect to wireless networks. But when I suspend my laptop using the special keys, I just want to disconnect from wireless without having to use any kind of GUI or curses user interface. It says in the documentation that wicd works by sending DBUS messages, so presumably it's possible to write a command that talks to the daemon directly.But I can't figure out how.Does anybody know by means of what shell command I can tell the wicd daemon to disconnect me from my wireless network?
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 126.96.36.199-174.2.3.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 university I go to uses a WPA2 wireless network that requires a netID and password to connect too. I installed wicd but I can't seem to connect to this network, is there a way to add this functionality to wicd, and if so, how do I do that (links to a how-to or guide would be nice, I've yet to find one).
Also, I spend most of my time on campus in the command line, so I'd like to know if there is a way to use command line utilities to connect to this network (again, a guide or how-to would be nice)
I can get online through my fedora live USB just fine (w/ network manager) but I'd rather get on directly from slackware.
I'm trying to connect to a AP by command line but I can't yet. Using the network manager it's possible but I need the command lines to use in my code programming.
Here it's what I tryed: Code: sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode managed channel 6 key restricted s:'12345' essid 'cassiano-PC_AP' and the tail: sudo tail -f /var/log/syslog Code: Aug 13 14:05:55 cassiano-linux kernel: [13476.935795] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:15:af:84:29:d3 (try 1) Aug 13 14:05:55 cassiano-linux kernel: [13476.935943] wlan0: deauthenticating from 00:15:af:84:29:d3 by local choice (reason=3)
i cant connect to adsl with pon dsl-provider or any command line. just network manager applet GUI works for me. i follow this guide [URL] and try about 3 hours but without success. i edit /etc/network/interfaces following this thread: [URL] but after any alteration in /etc/network/interfaces and restart network my adsl connections are not work at all and also i lost my GUI applet connections too. then i have to back /etc/network/interfaces to its original content and restart my computer to restore my connections
pon dsl-provider error is:

I want to connect to the internet using the command line. I'm 95% I have my wireless card installed correctly, since I'm using it right now.dhclient takes a minute or two, then finishes. It gives no output, success or failure. Then I open up Firefox and I'm not connected to the internet. What can I do to figure out what the problem is?
