Fedora Networking :: Create A Broadband Connection Using Network Manager?

May 26, 2011

Just replaced a working install of Ubuntu because i like GS over unity but i cant get my USB760 EVDO card to work. The usual fix of editing the cd.rules file and copying some information into modem.fdi does not seem to work on F15..

Also, noticed that when i attempt to create a broadband connection using network manager it allows me to go through all of the setup dialogs, but never actually adds the broadband connection.

Ubuntu Networking :: Mobile Broadband Connection Not Selectable In Network Manager

Nov 3, 2010

I am having problems with my 3 dongle- when I connect it to my netbook it flashes green so it detects a 3G network. However there is nothing in network manager enabling me to choose the mobile broadband so I can't use it. I know there should be an entry "mobile broadband" after the wireless networks listed.

I know the dongle works because I have previously used it successfully- I was using Linux Mint 8 and have now updated to version 9 and when I have tried to use it have been unable to do so.

I have gone into the connections and my 3 connection is present but there is no way for me to select it in network manager.

Fedora Networking :: Connection Sharing With Network Manager

Dec 21, 2010

I'm trying to share internet connection with my wifi capable mobile device. For that I'm creating ad-hoc wifi connection in networkmanager with 'shared to other computers' ipv4 option. And there is the problem - the device cannot get the setting via DHCP. The firewall is adjusted properly by NM, dnsmasq is started. I've looked at dnsmasq arguments string and found that the temporary config file which is provided by NM is empty. So, where else should I look for a possible reason or should I just post a NM bug?

Fedora Networking :: Network Connection Manager Gone / Not Working

May 15, 2011

Fresh install of Fedora 14 from Live cd.Used it for an hour or so, d-loaded some programs, had ti all running great. Wired connection to internet. Had the Network Connection Manager icon in panel. There was an icon saying new updates, alot of them, like 400 or so. Told it to go ahead and up date, left room. Came back hour later was done, said it needed to re boot, so I did. From then on, no internet, not icon, no Network Connection in the drop down list for preferences.

What I have tried:Worked off live cd, again, all works fine, icon, manager, internet all there.In installed version: In terminal, typed service Network Manager, it said unrecognized service.Did yum install network manager. It started to do it, but looked like it was trying to get stuff off mirrors, and of course there is no internet access. error PYCURJ ERROR 6.Of course I can re install, but I figure I will just end up in the same place a few hours from now.

Fedora Networking :: Network Manager - Terminating Current Connection

Sep 19, 2009

I have installed recently the Fedora 8 in a computer and during installation it was set a static IP with the netmask and gateway. At first it worked well, but after some boots the connection begins to fail. It seems that the network-manager withdraws the static IP and tries
to get connection via DHCP. Below is the /var/log/messages file during the failed connection:

Code:
Sep 19 10:36:53 canario avahi-daemon[1695]: Interface eth0.IPv4 no longer relevant for mDNS.

Fedora Networking :: Samba And Network Manager In 9 - Setting Up A Wired Connection?

Feb 3, 2009

I have 2 workstations that I'm trying to network together so that I can backup each to the other. One is XP sp2 and the other Fedora 9. Since installing Samba on the Fedora box and trying to get it configured, I have a problem that Add/remove programs won't do installs because it says there's no connection to a network. Network Manager says there aren't any connections, but it worked before the Samba install. Mozilla and Thunderbird can access the internet OK. Both workstations are connected by cable to my router and thus to my ISP (DNS server).

Two questions:- where can I find hints on setting up a wired connection (which card's MAC address does it want? router or wrkstn?) and Am I right that Add/remove is stuffed because of Network Manager?I now have Samba working from Linux to XP, but still can't get into Linux from XP. I tried the Linux PC's MAC address and set up a wired connection in Network Manager. NM still thinks there isn't one...

Ubuntu Networking :: Mobile Broadband Keeps Disconnecting, Network Manager Remains Silent?

Apr 18, 2010

I have a broadband mobile modem iCon 225 (Option) with SiMobil provider (Slovenia). I run ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala). I connect to the internet without problem. After a few minutes, the modem lights start signaling that there is no connection, but the network manager shows connected status. I have to reconnect the network manager to regain connection. After about a dozen times of reconnecting like this, I have to reboot the system, as it won't connect, even if I unplug and replug the modem.

I've noticed these frequent disconnects have started a few days ago. I did experience disconnects in the past, but as nearly often as this. I can't attribute disconnects to activity/inactivity, as they seem to happen no matter what I do.

Ubuntu Networking :: UMW190 Has No Verizon Entry In Network Manager Broadband Configuration

May 14, 2010

I am having trouble getting a Verizon UMW190 configured in Network Manager under 10.04 Lucid as a 'New Mobile Broadband Connection'. As the UMW190 is a 'World' capable mobile Broadband adapter is has both CDMA and GSM capability. I only need CDMA for now. However, when network manager detects the VZ UMW190, it does not offer Verizon as a choice in the Provider list. I searched and found references in this forum for using the UMW190 under 9.10 with gnome-ppp via this link:[URL]and tried it without any luck.I have previously used a VZ UM175 on this machine under 10.04 without any issues as Verizon appeared in the Provider list and the configuration worked without a problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Vodafone Mobile Broadband (k3806-z) Modem Not Listed By Network Manager

Feb 4, 2011

I have a k3806-z vodafone mobile broadband modem, on ubuntu 10.04. I have added the mobile broadband connection with the network manager wizard. But network manager does not list my connection. I installed usb-modeswitch and usb-modeswitch-data. Still nothing. The disc utility tells me it recognises the modem as a cd drive and a storage device. Evidently usb-modeswitch is not working.

Fedora Networking :: Network Manager - Adsl Connection - Ifup Ppp0 Doesn't Work

Nov 22, 2009

I have a pppoe adsl connection. When I disconnect and try to reconnect, network-manager keeps asking for my password. I type it again and again with no success. When I reboot, it works again. On ubuntu, I use pppoeconf and it works well. So on Fedora I made a connection with pppoe-setup but neither ifup nor
Code:

pppoe-connect
commands work. When I type
Code:
pppoe-connect
, it says
Code:
/usr/sbin/adsl-start: line 217: 13409 Terminated $CONNECT
"$@" > /dev/null 2>&1
. When I type

Ifup ppp0 doesn't work either. However, with exactly the same settings, ubuntu connects to the internet.

Fedora Networking :: Networking - Connect To The Internet Using BSNL Broadband Connection

Mar 6, 2010

I have installed fedora 12 recently. after installation i tried to connect to the internet using BSNL broadband connection. I filled in the details such as IP, Netmask, Gateway and even DNS servers. In the services also I ensured that the network manager services is on. However even though my computer cannot connect to the internet. I then tried the ping test of the modem from the address 192.168.1.1 and found that the ping test is successful. Then i tried the network administrator and there I noticed something unusual.

There are two options in the devices eth0 and eth1 thats ok but the unusual; thing is that the Activate (green button), Deactivate (red button) and even the delete buttons are in the background and I cannot select them. Isthis the problem for the network connectivity.

Fedora Networking :: Mobile Broadband Drops Connection After 30s

May 8, 2010

I'm having problems with my mobile connection. This has been working fine for months, but in the past few days it has connected OK, I've been able to transfer data, but after 30s the connection closes. Setup is Acer AA1 with F12 connecting via bluetooth to Nokia 3110c on O2.

So to try and figure out what's happening I put the bluetooth dongle in my desktop PC, also running F12, made a connection and again it dropped out after 30s. Then I fired up windows on the AA1 and made a connection using the same dongle, this time it held up OK. This leads me to think that something has changed recently in F12 to upset it.

Fedora Networking :: Intermittent Mobile Broadband Connection Just Goes Off Without Doing Anything

Apr 3, 2011

In the last week I have noticed that sometimes my Mobile Broadband connection just goes off without me doing anything! I have credit on the dongle account, so it isn't that. I'm using fedora 14 on an acer aspire one netbook. Dongle is a Huawei E160 on o2 here in the UK Kernel is 2.6.35.11-83.i686.fc14

Sometimes unplugging and replugging the usb dongle works. Othertimes, I have to leave it out for several hours. It does seem to happen daily, though.

Fedora Networking :: Getting Mobile Broadband Connection To Autostart Upon Boot

Jun 14, 2009

I just installed Fedora 11 (excellent work by the Fedora team!) and got my Verizon mobile USB CDMA device working after some file modifications (easily found via searching).

I have to click the network icon in the task bar, and select "Auto Mobile Broadband (CDMA) Connection" to get it to connect though. It then shows up via "ifconfig" as ppp0 and all is good.

But how do I get this to auto-start when the system reboots? It doesn't show up in the network manager, and I'm not even sure how to use command-line to start up the CDMA connection! I only can do it via clicking that icon.

Networking :: Connection Manager System In Network

Sep 18, 2010

I just wanted to know what's your opinion on my problem.I have few linux servers that can be located on any place in the world, only port 22 is open. At my office I need connection to every server, but every server must be isolated from every server.So by now I worked only with ssh authorization by username and password. What seems to be preferable ?.

1 Going on working with ssh with authorization.
2 working with ssh but with adding keys
3 start to work with vpn

So if I am keeping use ssh with authorization I need something that will change password every month only for security working with ssh key, it seems like key depends on gateway where key created so if change gateway I lost connection using vpn sounds good but in this case I mush isolate servers from each other.The best solution I think is combination of any two methods

CentOS 5 Networking :: Cannot Edit Connection In Network Manager

Jan 12, 2011

I'd like to use NetworkManager on a freshly installed CenntOS 5 on laptop Lenovo ThinkPad T61p. I followed: [URL] Everything went OK, until I selected my active LAN connection in "Edit Connections". After clicking on "Edit", it's not possible to change anything - all is grayed-out. I'm guessing it's a permission problem. But I don't know the internal structure of NetworkManager and what files to look at. I was also expecting that after stopping the network service "Syetem->Admin->Network" would be inactive, but it isn't. Shouldn't the old network manager be uninstalled as well?

Ubuntu Networking :: Connection Sharing With Network Manager And Dnsmasq?

Jan 1, 2010

how to change the IP range provided by default by Network Manager / dnsmasq from 10.42.43.-- to something else?

I have setup a working network using a Bell wireless modem (Canada) and Network Manager in 8.10, 9.04, and 9.10.to do Internet connection sharing. In 8.10 the only way I could get it to work was with WICD and KPPP, many hours spent on this one. I got it to work in 9.04 and 9.10 using network manager, but certainly not out-of-the-box. If someone would like some tips on how I did it, in each case, let me know.

My current challenge is trying to set the dhcp range of dnsmasq (which I am 99% sure is what is handing out addresses) from th 10.42.43.-- address range to a 192.168.0.-- range.

I HAVE edited /etc/dnsmasq.conf and can get the edits to this file to break the setup (dnsmasq will not start) but have not been able to get it to change the IP address range.

It seems that either this file is ignored, or overridden by some other process. I have looked at the very good post at [URL] about dnsmasq but this does not do the trick.

By the way, the way I can get this to work is to start NM, establish my cellular internet connection, then kill dnsmasq then establish my ICS network (on eth0). If I don't kill dnsmasq, then it does bring up the connection, but it then shuts down in a matter of seconds. It is all very manageable using a launcher (kdesudo pkill dnsmasq) on the task bar, but not all that elegant.

the IP range and where this is provided to Network Manager or the network itself is my real question now.

Ubuntu Networking :: Network Manager - System Connection Is Disabled

Jan 13, 2011

I've tried to configure :

- a wired network
- a wireless network
- a mobile broadband network as both "system connection" and "automatic connection".

I need to have a laptop that will try to connect as sson as I plug the ethernet cable in or as soon as it senses a certain SSID or as soon as there's a mobile broadband device plugged into a USB port. Non-system connections are working but I am not willing the actual user (non-admin) to read the WPA2 key or the SIM PIN. But the check box for the system connection is disabled. And running "sudo kcmshell4 --icon networkmanager kcm_networkmanagement kcm_networkmanagement_tray" doesn't result in a system connection.

Ubuntu Networking :: Installing Network Manager Without Internet Connection

Jan 17, 2011

I've read a lot on the internet about various ways of doing this but i've been unsuccessful each time. Basically what i've done is accidently un-installed network-manager because I was having trouble staying connected on my WPA network. The easiest way of reinstalling it I know of is using the CD but I don't have a CD ROM drive and the pen drive I used to install it I no longer have.

I tried using a program called Keryx but you need python installed and from some reason this doesn't come with ubuntu 10.10. I've also downloaded the .deb packages but I still need to download 200kb which is a killer. I've also downloaded it from here too [URL] but the install file makes no sense to me as i'm not a massive linux user. One last thing reinstalling isn't really an option as i've already put a lot of time into setting up this computer.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 Wlan0 Connection Drops Network Manager Indicates Still Connected?

May 13, 2010

I can connect to the wireless at my school, but the connection drops frequently and regularly. Network Manager still shows bars indicating the network strength and shows that it's connected to the network in the dropdown. Selecting the network again causes it to indicate that it disconnects and reconnects. At this point I have wireless until the connection drops again. Possibly relevant details: This is the Purdue PAL2.0 network, which can be tricky to connect to, particularly for Linux users. It's a hidden network using WPA2 and PEAP. My computer is a Dell Inspiron 1420n laptop, circa August 2007.
