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
commands work. When I type
, it says
/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.
I have my ubuntu box hard wired into my network. It all works fine, until I reboot my ubuntu box. After reboot, it can no longer see the network. I have it set up with a static ip. Not sure that I set it up completely correctly but it works fine...when working.. To fix the problem, I enter terminal: ifup eth0 That fixes all know problems until next reboot. What do I need to do so that it will remember settings and automatically be hooked into the network at power up?
I added a repo from launchpad to install latest Network Manager and then installed it (version 0.8). Then I decided to rollback to Karmic's version (since 0.8 doesn't work) but failed: I removed the repo from sources.list
Then apt-get udpate Then apt-get clean Then apt-get install network-manager...
But still 0.8 version is downloaded and installed! How can I restore Karmic's version?
How do you mannually set up a network using Yast/ifup? I'm trying to get my wireless running on a Broadcom 1390 WLAN. I've gone through the stickies in the wireless forum (this is my first stab at Linux) and have gotten the drivers installed and the internet working (albeit intermittently) using Knetwork manager. It seems that some folks that have had the same issue did not have problems setting the network up manually with Yast & ifup. I've disabled network manager in Yast, and I went through man ifup. It seems I need a "pre-configured interface," but I don't know how to make that happen.
I just installed OpenSuSE 11.3 on an old IBM T20 I had kicking around and I'm using a Proxim Wireless PCMCIA Card (Atheros AR5001X). Since this laptop does not have a DVD drive I installed the system using the Netboot CD and have the SuSE 11.3 ISO on an NFS/SAMBA file server. The issues appeared after the first reboot, the adapter no longer worked. I resorted to using the wired interface to finish the install.
Once the system was up followed the trouble shooting steps outlined in various places and found the ESSID is not being picked up by the ifup scripts. Not sure if it matters but I have ESSID broadcasts turned off on all my WAPs.
The ESSID is in ifcfg-wlan0. To get wireless working I have to manually issue iwconfig wlan0 essid "xxxx"..
I have searched around a bit for a knetwork manager issue I am having on my opensuse 11.2 32 bit install. My wireless card is an 04:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01) I am currently using the Broadcom wl driver
I am on the Internet with this machine as I am typing using the older "ifup" method. I am having great difficulty connecting to the Internet when I use knetwork manger though. The strange part is when I am connected to my router with knetwork manager, I can log into my Router, but I can not get to any web-page/ping any outside address.
so far the best (I was able to locate) advice I was able to get is located in this post. < Broadcom wireless, partchy internet - openSUSE Forums > following a posted how to to disable IPV6 (I suspect this may be the issue??), I was unable to locate modprobe.conf, or modprobe.conf.local, even after I updated via updatdb. I gave a shot at entering in "disable_ipv6=1" into "menu.lst". However, this did not solve my issue with knetwork manager. If my network information is needed when I am "connected" utilizing knetwork manager
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?
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.
I'm using ADSL connection as a way to access internet.All of us know that in windows we can get configed easily.But it is a little more difficult in Fedora.How can we config ADSL connection in Fedora 10?My modem uses dynamic ip.
I have run Fedora 9 and 10 on my Dell Inspiron 640m for about 6 months now and generally experience very few issues with it. Specifically I've been running Fedora 10 KDE 64bit since it was launched. Up until I had to reload it a couple of weeks ago my Vodafone Huawei E172 3G dongle worked perfectly with Network Manager. Since the reload the dongle is detected by the OS (lsusb lists it correctly, etc) but nothing I do will make it appear in Network Manager.
I've tried manually configuring a GSM connection then plugging it in, but no joy. I've also tried using it in my Acer Aspire One which runs Fedora 10 XFCE and it work, but when I try it in another Dell Laptop running Fedora 10 KDE 64 bit it doesn't. I'm assuming that a recent update must have caused some issue as it has definitely worked in both Dell laptops in the past. As mentioned I've reloaded recently but the other laptop hasn't been.
I'm unsure where to go from here. I haven't been able to get Vodafone's beta drivers working under F10 (although I did under F9) and can't find any posts on this issue. The version of Network Manager that I'm running is NetworkManager-0.7.0-1.git20090102.fc10.src.rpm, which was released shortly before I reloaded. Chances are I just didn't try my dongle between the update coming out and the reload, so didn't notice the problem before hand.
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: Interface eth0.IPv4 no longer relevant for mDNS. Sep 19 10:36:53 canario avahi-daemon: Withdrawing address record for fe80::20d:87ff:fe0c:355f on eth0.

I have updated the system this morning and the vpn stopped working!It gives me an error: invalid secrets.I use network manager to connect to a pptp vpn connection, I use fedora 12.Does anyone know the problem?
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.
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...
I just installed x64 Fedora, and as the title says, NM fails to detect my WiFi card. It's an Encore ENLWI-N with a RaLink RT2800 chipset. The card does show up when I run lspci, although iwconfig yields nothing.Not sure if this helps, but when Ias running Karmic Koala, Ubuntu detected the card immediately and required no configuration
I recently installed fedora 15 on my computer but I have a huge problem. I can connect to my router wirelessly for a couple of minutes only. Afterwards my computer has no Internet connection although the network manager and the icon on the upper bar says that i am still connected. I tried editing the /etc/rc.local and /etc/resolv.conf as mentioned in other posts in here bit no luck so far.
I am a convert from Ubuntu (9.04 kept freezing on my laptop; when it did work, many packages it seemed were outdated--ie only Eclipse 3.2, rdesktop was messed up [and apparently is also in Fedora]), and I am having some trouble with getting my wireless working.I am running Fedora 11.First off, there is a problem when trying to connect when using DHCP. NetworkManager gets to the second green dot, and then after a short while I am given a message that the connection was disconnected.
Configuring the interface manually, not using DHCP, allows the connection to complete. However, the internet is very slow. There is a 15-30 sec delay before website loading actually commences, and then another delay each time an ad must be fetched from another server.How can I fix this delay? I know I have encountered it in earlier versions of Ubuntu, but I can't remember how I fixed it.About the rdesktop problem, if anyone is able to help [maybe I should post another thread?], the cursor color (the color of the pointer) is inverted---where it should be white it is black, and where it should be black it is white. I use rdesktop a lot to connect to my terminal server in my basement. Any idea how to fix it?
On my Linux box, (which is a proxy, webserver, mailserver, etc. etc. etc.) I use static IP's. Network manager is turned off, but when you do that Firefox ALWAYS has WORK OFFLINE checked. I could use Network Manager but that's not really the right way, cause I need the servers to work in level 3, etc. as well...Anyways, anyone know a way to make FF behave if I use Static IP without NM?
I downloaded openSUSE-11.4-KDE-LiveCD-i686.iso from software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 11.4 yesterday.It's a liveCD,not a DVD. Then I used a dd command to make a live USB by the instruction from this page:SDB:Live USB Then I shut down the computer,and boot from the usb. I went to the yast--DSL to make a new adsl connection.But after I configured everything,yast told me one package needed.The package's name is "linux-atm-lib". I haven't connected to internet.How could I do to install a package and make a connection?
Now I am downloading a DVD.Does a DVD include the package called "linux-atm-lib"?
i have huawei usb stick modem, i'm connecting to internet with wvdial command, i have configured the file "wvdial.conf" to be able to connect, everything works fine i guess but the update applet still show me the message
Code: Unable to check whether updates are available
connect to the internet and connection manager too .. it tell me i'm not connected, i think i must configure my connection in an other way .. but i don't know how ..
I got everything working except any localhost connections from within the server. I've tried to connect using localhost, 127.0.0.1, and dedicated IP from within the server and several CMS sites I have moved over to the server and all the local host connections fail.
I have been trying to install Xubuntu 9.10 in an old desktop computer (Mobile AMD Duron, 213 Mb RAM) but the mouse doesn't work! Neither the Network connexion... When I boot with an USB (same OS) everything works fine... I can also boot with Puppy Linux (working in other partition) without any problem.
