Fedora Networking :: Connecting To Wireless Router ?
May 5, 2010
When fedora initially starts up, the network manager shows all the available wireless connections available to me. However, when I select my wireless connection, it will go through the loading process where it shows the two green dots and the circular moving blue streak, then it prompts me to put in the wpa password.
This is where the trouble starts...when i input my wpa password, it will proceed to attempt to connect to my network but it never succeeds in doing so--it will keep on asking me to input my wpa password. when i finally get sick of doing it over and over again, i just hit cancel instead of retrying to connect.
After i stop trying to connect, the network manager no longer shows all the available wireless networks--the list is completely empty, and i can find no way to get the list to show up again, with the exception of restarting my computer.
I am able to connect to the internet with a wired ethernet, but id like my wireless to work.
I dual boot Windows/Fedora 11 on my Dell Latitude D830 laptop, which has an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG card and I have just bought a Linksys WRT160NL wireless router. I am currently trying to set up OpenWRT linux on the router. Because of the nature of my problem I have also posted this on their forum.I am having trouble connecting to my OpenWRT install via Fedora. Things seem okay in Windows, but when I try to connect from linux my laptop locks up completely and I have to hard reboot. I previously have never had any trouble connecting to any other router with this install of Fedora.
I have a computer running Ubuntu, and a MacBook Pro. I need to buy a decently cheap wireless router that I can hook up to my Ubuntu so that it will send wifi signals and I can use the wifi to go online with my MacBook Pro. I was about to get one today, but remembered how Ubuntu is picky about working with things like that. I'm only going to be using it to get signals around the house which isn't that big at all.
So what would be the cheapest and decently efficient wireless routers that I can use which Ubuntu will cooperate with?
Ubuntu 10.10 connects to a DSL modem without any problems - I mean I just plugged it in and it worked - GREAT I bought a wireless router so I could connect my netbook and now my Ubuntu machine which is simply using a cable from the wireless router now DOES NOT connect. I tried a windows machine on the wired connection from the wireless router and it connects without a problem. OF course if I remove the wireless router from the chain, i.e. simply connect directly to the modem it works straight away.
For several months I was using EDUP adapter with both my laptop that operated on Ubuntu 9.04 exclusively and a desktop that could also boot with XP. Soon after 9.10 was released I updated my laptop and was able to use the adapter to connect to the Net.Recently, I also updated the desktop but also made it exclusively a Linux machine. Unfortunately, I have been unable to get the wireless adapter to work again on the desktop.The OS recognizes the device as wlan0, and lsusb shows:Bus 003 Device 005: 0cde:0008 Z-Com Sitecom Wireless Network Adapter 100G+ WL -125The network manager recognises the availability of the wireless network and attempts to connect. After trying for a while it comes up with a dialog box "Wireless Network Authentication Required" and in response I enter the WPA password but with no success.The behaviour would indicate that I am entering the wrong password but I am not.I have checked it several times and compared with the password that works with the laptop.
I have installed Ubuntu x86 10.04 LTS onto an old Dell machine which is connected to my broadband modem and Netgear Wireless Router (WGR614 v6). The router is encrypted with 64-bit WEP and allows my System76 Pangolin Performance laptop to connect flawlessly out of the box. However, my sister runs Windows XP Professional 32-Bit on a Dell Latitude D830. This machine's wi-fi card is an Intel PROSet Wireless which recognizes the router but can't access it.
What should I do on her laptop in order for her to access the wi-fi router?
router comtrend CT-536T but now my laptop lenovo r61i is not able to connect to it. like it has a issue with wap/wap1. Is their a possibility to get it to connect. the other router maxG (US robotics) is wep/hex based. any suggestions ? It only made a connection the first time and after the signal wasn't even noticeable .
I recently installed Fedora 14 on my machine. Ever since I cannot connect to the Internet at home.henever I plugin in the ethernet cable the ADSL router disconnects and all machines connected to the router lose connection to the Internet.
I am using fedora 12, for about 2 months and now I am facing for the first time a problem with the wireless router. After a router restart my computer cannot connect with the router even if it is listed along with other access points on the list. I am sure the password is right because I am currently online with my windows partition using the same router.

The wireless used to be working fine until the router restart (switch on/off the hardware) has happened
I made some tests with a router without security and my internet connexion worked without any problem. But if I activated the wep security (or wpa it is the same behaviour) suse 11.1 won't connect in any way.
I used knetwork manager and traditional ifup method, both failed to connect.
I saw, using iwconfig that in both cases (wpa or wep) I was associated with the AP but dhclient won't work in any way, I was always in the APIPA...
I checked if there weren't any access control (mac address filtering, ...) and all the settings in the router were off to give me full access. Including the firewall set to off. The DHCP feature was on in both cases.
I noticed that the firewall must be on in suse 11.1 otherwise I couldn't have any connections even if I disabled wep or wpa...
Using openSuSE 11.4 D-Link DWL-520+ won't connect to my router. The computer recognises the wireless card is there and working but I can't get it to connect to the router. Not sure how to get it to connect.
My son lost his USB Wireless stick for his Computer. I had thought I heard that if you had a second wireless router, you could use it somehow to detect the wireless router you have already set up in your home (like using a wireless card)? Is this what Ad-Hoc is? Either way, can this be done and if so how? I use a WRT54Gx2 Lynksys router and have a TRENDNET TEW-432BRP wireless router and also a spare D-link DI-514. I use ubuntu 10.04, and also wanted to know if I connected one of the router to his on the LAn port could he connect msaybe through an Ad-Hoc on my local computer here? He uses XP on his. I'm a newbie to linux and networking in general.
I moved my server and network equipment, and now the wireless works but I cannot get my server online. I host a website, so this is kind of urgent.
I have a wireless router and can access the internet fine on my laptop. My server is wired & connected to the router. It sets up the networking properly.. ifconfig has an ip address, the default gateway is present. But I cannot ping google, or even the router. It says destination host unreachable.
So I go back to the laptop to check the router settings.. sometimes it likes to assign the server the wrong internal ip. But, I can't access the router settings either! The page (192.168.1.1) times out. Same with trying to ping the router. How can the laptop be online if it can't reach the router?
Oddly, ifconfig on my laptop reports an ip address starting with 99.233. It's always given me an internal address starting with 192.168. What's going on here? Is the router not allocating an internal ip? I use wicd to connect, if it's relevant.
We have a windows laptop that can only get a "local connection". Now it does sound like the router is forwarding directly to my laptop, instead of allocating internal ips.
I have a wireless USB (TP-Link TL-WN620G) adapter on F10( 18.104.22.168-170.2.113.fc10.i686). I have installed the drivers and it is detecting my router. But it keeps asking for network password with repeating a dialogue box although I entered correct password. I have configured the wireless configuration using NetworkManager.
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 want to set up a Linux box as a wireless router to replace our existing Netgear WNR1000 router, as I believe the Netgear does not support the coming IPv6 protocol. Unfortunately, it is not flashable with OpenWRT or DD-WRT presently.
As we have Comcast, our cable modem acts as a dumb modem according to the customer support guy I talked to, and our router is the one that asks for the IP address from DHCP. Thus, when Comcast switches over to IPv6, I don't believe my existing router would work, correct?
My idea is to take a Linux box and put two NICs and a wireless adapter in it, using IPCop or Smoothwall to set up a router. I could then enable IPv6 support for when we have IPv6 with Comcast. Is that possible? Would there be a way to get BIND to hand out private IP addresses in the same subnet on the both the LAN NIC and the wireless card?
I am currently running Fedora 10.92 on my desktop and have a linksys network card, one of the ones that uses the b43 wireless driver. Fedora sees the network card, wlan0, and driver but I can't get it to see the router and connect. I have tried to manually put in the ip,ssid, ect but to no avail. I tired starting network manager from terminal which worked for me in fedora 8 and ifconfig wlan0 up but nothing seems to work.
I have a question. I just bought an internet router which also has wireless connection and my notebook also has wireless LAN.I was able to connect the computer to the internet router very easy. But i dont know how to make it work wirelesss under fedora linux 12...i mean how should i setup the connection to the router so i will be able to have a wireless connection?
i ahve just installed fedora 11 kde edition and i used to use fedora 10 after finish installation i edit the connectons to connect to my network im in lan network but i connect my cable to an access point to free using my laptop anywhere after adding every thing (wep key ,static ip's,) as i used to do and i have the connected sign at the system tray.i open the browser but no internet connection pinging the gateway returns "Destination Host Unreachable".
I'm having trouble getting my network set up the way that I want it/had it. You see, when I first set up my network, I just had my cable modem going directly to my standard wired router (A D-Link DI-604), which had DHCP,and was connected to all of the computers on my network. I had one switch hooked up to one of the ports of the router, but this was a regular switch, and it would not try to assign IP addresses, it would just pass through the DHCP info as I wanted.
Now however, my network setup has changed. My room mate and I both got laptops, and we decided that we wanted to have wireless access so we didn't have to constantly plug in to the router.
Now my network is set up like this: The modem is hooked up to the router(DI-604), which is hooked up on the LAN side to our computers, our switch (which is hooked up to 3 more computers), and to a wireless router card (A Gigabyte GN-BC01).
The wireless router card has two jacks for ethernet. One for WAN, and one for LAN. The LAN side we have plugged only into the computer in which the card is installed.
Now the problem is this: The wireless router card comes with DHCP by default, and it's assigning addresses to the laptops and to the computer hat it's in, and worse, the IP addresses are on a different subnet than that of the main dlink router. The Main (dlink) router assigns addresses from 192.168.0.1 (itself) to 192.168.0.254, while the wireless router card assigns addresses from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 (itself).
Because of this, I cannot access services on the wireless network from my wired network or vice versa. The first thing I tried was setting the card to assign addresses from 192.168.0.12 to 192.168.0.253, however it just said "internal error" when I tried to do this. I decided that this may be because it sees that it was being assigned an address on it's WAN side on the same subnet. So the next thing I tried was disabling DHCP and setting the "LAN IP Address" to 192.168.0.12, hoping that the DHCP would just go through the card, like a switch. I would have set the LAN IP address to be assigned by DHCP, but this was not an option, so I decided that'd be the best thing to set it to.
Once again however, setting the LAN ip address to an address on the same subnet as that of the IP assigned to it's WAN side caused it to report an "internal error". I verified that this was the issue by setting the LAN address to several other private IP addresses to test (I.E. 10.0.0.1, 192.168.3.1, 192.168.5.12).
My question then really is: How do I set up both routers so that I can access services and computers from each network from the other network. Should I set them with different subnets and set the gateway on the wireless network to the main router? To the wireless router card? Should I put them on the same subnet? Will it know how to communicate?

I've had my PC connected to my router since I installed Ubuntu. My router has the address and name password for my ISP. I'd like to plug my PC directly into my ISP line, but the network manager won't find the connection, and I don't know how to tell my PC my ISP's address and the name and password to logon with. I set up my router, and I know how to make the connection in XP, but I don't know how to in Linux. I have very limited Terminal experience.
When I start Ubuntu at work it automatically connects to the router every time. At home the router signal is quite weak but manually connecting via NetworkManager Applet 0.8 was successful for a week or so. In the past week, however, although the router appears in the list in Network Manager, it has stopped working and is unable to connect. Nothing has changed with the router or hardware in that time.
This is a new laptop which had Windows 7 pre-installed. Windows 7 connects to the home router successfully every time. I really don't want to use Windows 7 but until I can get this fixed I have no choice.
I don't know if it's relevant, but once I tried deleting the AUTO Home connection from Network Manager and was then able to connect on the next attempt, but this has not worked since.
I want to use centos as a developer server on my desktop before deploying my stuff to the internet.
I have a netgear DG834G router. It's IP address on my local network is 192.168.0.1 and connected to the adsl line. The router is set up to act as an dhcp server too. On the router I have reserved ip address for the nics per their mac addresses.
My server is on a dual boot desktop. The other boot is XP and works fine, picks up dhcp.
I don't know how to connect Centos to the router.
I have tried to play with the network manager but to no avail.
I can ping localhost, interface eth0 is there, but i can't ping to the router.
I have set the manager system/administration/network to get dhcp automatically.
I can't activate the eth0 although the hardware device says it is OK.
