Ubuntu Networking :: Replacing NetworkManager With Mandriva Net-Applet?

May 10, 2010

Is there any easy way to replace the default Gnome NetworkManager used by Ubuntu with Mandriva Net-Applet? Although I prefer Ubuntu, overall, I have had better luck with video streaming, browser speed, and consistency when using Mandriva (with iPV6 disabled).

Security :: CentOS 5 - SELinux Denial Of Wicd / Wpa_supplicant - Get Wireless To Work Properly Using Default NetworkManager

May 11, 2010

I am trying to use CentOS 5.4 to set up a secure laptop, largely because of it's SELinux functionality. Unfortunately I couldn't get wireless to work properly using the default NetworkManager so I installed wicd. Initially it buggered up my whole installation but after relabelling files using SEL I can now use my system again. but.. I can't use it with SELinux enabled, as it denies the required accesses for wicd to work. I also get similar SELinux denials for wpa_supplicant. A couple of snippets from /var/log/audit/audit.log -

Dec 17, 2010

I'v just installed wicd. I can't get it to sart, I get errors saying that wicd couldn't connect to it's dbus interface and the wicd deamon has shut down.

Fedora Networking :: Replacing The Linksys WRT54G Firmware?

Apr 7, 2009

I just installed Cable internet in my apartment. Part of the deal was a free Router (a Belkin). Now I already had a router so now I have an extra, and I remembered something I wanted to try If I ever got an extra router.... I read somewhere, that you can replace the firmware of the Linksys WRT54G Router/Switch with a Linux-based firmware.

I want to try this, but I have some concerns. I'm worried about losing my WPA2 Encryption, and connection problems; I have two Linux laptops (Ubuntu, and Fedora 64 bit) which connect Wirelessly, a desktop w/ 64 Bit Fedora 10, and two Vista Desktops that connect via Ethernet. Will the multiple Operating Systems cause a problem?

Fedora Networking :: NetworkManager Does Not Come Up In GNOME

Nov 25, 2009

I have no problems seeing the networks available and connecting to a network in KDE. But there is no network manager in GNOME. I might have messed up with the settings earlier. What I can do though is run knetwork manager every time I start up (or add it to start up programs). But that opens up the KDE wallet which would rather avoid.I am thinking I need to install something related to NetowrkManager.

Fedora Networking :: Does NetworkManager Use The Wpa_Supplicant

Feb 20, 2011

if the NetworkManager uses wpa_supplicant? I normally dont use NetworkManager and decided to try it. I started it and tried it out and it works with WEP and WPA! I cant figure out why using the iwconfig command is not working by itself for WEP. WPA working with NetworkManager is just a bonus though.

Fedora Networking :: F15 Is Disabling NetworkManager

Jun 25, 2011

I'm an inordinate amount of trouble getting F15 to run without NetworkManager. If I boot with the NetworkManager service enabled, my NIC presents as expected at /dev/eth0 (I'm using biosdevname=0). However, when I stop the NetworkManager service, /dev/eth0 disappears from the filesystem.If I boot without NetworkManager enabled, /dev/eth0 is never created. Reviewing dmesg, udev is loading an ethernet driver.

Fedora Networking :: NetworkManager Won't Connect Securely Under F10?

I loaded F10 up on my laptop a few nights back. NetworkManager connects via Ethernet just fine. It will also connect wirelessly, but only when security is disabled. I've been using 128-bit WEP.

When I try to connect using security, this is what appears in the log:

Fedora Networking :: Where To Get Networkmanager Gnome Applet

Feb 5, 2009

after fiddling around with compiz-fusion and KDE, my network suddenly disappeared. I looked in the package manager and apparently I don't have the gnome applet for networkmanager...but everything else I seem to have (the git version not svc or w/e) Anyone know if installing the applet will let me choose my wireless network and connect to it? Right now I think so, but what I have to do is boot into windows, find the package on the web and download it, then boot into fedora and install it

where I can find the fedora 10 networkmanager-gnome package (git version for x86_64)? I looked around and found the svc version and a git version for i386, but my OS is x86_64 and I couldn't find any git versions of it for 64-bit fedora's. btw, I have no idea what git and svc mean, but when I tried to install the svc version, it told me I had to install svc versions for all the other networkmanager packages...

Fedora Networking :: Intel 3945ABG Or NetworkManager?

Mar 19, 2009

I recently installed F10 x86_64 on my Lenovo T61 laptop, and while I'm quite pleased with F10, I am having a difficult time with my wireless card. I spent most of yesterday searching for a solution, but none have presented themselves. Scenario: I am trying to connect to a HIDDEN SSID with NO ENCRYPTION (work Wifi, don't ask) using network-manager and its associated applet.

Symptoms: I left-click on NetworkManager, select "Connect to Hidden Wireless Network", enter my information, NetworkManager does a few things, and finally I'm told that NetworkManager cannot connect to my network.

Fedora Networking :: NetworkManager Static Ip And Routing ?

Apr 14, 2009

I have just installed Fedora 10 on an old laptop and was quite impressed with how smoothly it all went ... until it came to setting up networking!

I have battled for three days now and I'm almost there;
- installed updated firmware to the built in Broadcom 4306 wireless network adapter
- got NetworkManager to work with a static ip address by manually editing the ifcfg-wlan0 file
- managed to get the WPA security to work

The only problem I am left with is that there is no default route; if I set one up using: ip r a default via 10.1.1.1 dev wlan0

Then everything starts working.

If I try to add routes using the NetworkManager gui interface they dont get saved (no suprises there then! ).

I have tried creating a route-wlan0 file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ but this seems to be ignored by NetworkManager.

Since the NetworkManager GUI is almost useless, does anyone know if there are any other configuration files I can manually modify to get a default route set?

Fedora Networking :: NetworkManager Doesn't Autoconnect On Login

Jun 14, 2009

Kinda fed up with NetworkManager. Since trying the betas of F11 on my laptop, i've had endless bad experience with it.

Installed version: 0.7.1

Aside from the description below, please let me know what detailed system info you want to see (specific commands appreciated).

When i log in, the applet loads. However, it doesn't connect to the last Wifi connection i used. My SSID is hidden, so i click on the applet and choose "Connect to hidden wireless network". i see my stored connection in the drop-list. i select it, and all fields are greyed out, the WPA key is blank, and the Connect button is disabled.

Leaving that dialog, i delete my stored connection and re-create it manually, setting all the information correctly. i have DSL, using my DSL modem in bridging mode, and for some reason NetworkManager doesn't retrieve the DNS entries from the modem, whereas Windows does. So i have to set the connection to "DHCP (Address Only)" and manually add the IPs for my DNS.

However, the connection doesn't initiate, so i click the applet again and attempt again to connect to my hidden SSID, using the newly created profile. Same problem: no WPA key, all boxed disabled, and Connect also disabled.

The ONLY way i can get this thing to connect is by deleting my stored connection, clicking to connect to a hidden SSID, and create the connection from the New dialog. However, then i still have to go into Edit Connections and set the DHCP and DNS correcly before i can reach outside.

This is ridiculous, and i haven't been messing with any other configuration. i had a thread when F11 was still in beta where i had inconsistent results with NetworkManager. After thinking i got it fixed with some help, and discovering it wasn't, i decided to wait for the final release to see if it would work any better.

(automatically connect to the last active connection), consistently (connects when it loads at login every time), Otherwise, if there's a different connection manager, i'm open to that as well. Especially if the alternate connection manager can automatically retrieve DNS settings the way Windows can.

Fedora Networking :: Manual Wireless Config - NetworkManager ?

Jul 3, 2009

I have a typical 'linksys' style home wireless router (whose IP is 192.168.0.1) .

If I use DHCP, everything works fine:

Code:

However, if I try to give myself a static IP,

Code:

(I also never understood why the DNS server should not be the real dns server address (some external ip) rather than the router's address? but that is what gets set automatically when using DHCP)

So using manual, it connects, but then the internet doesn't work. The only difference I see when I go to "connection information" when connected with dhcp vs manual is in dhcp mode there is a "default route: 192.168.0.1". Is that the problem? How do I set this "default route" / what is it?

Fedora Networking :: Networkmanager VPN Client Setup For Sonicwall VPN

Aug 14, 2009

I'm looking for some information on setting up a VPN client through Networkmanager in Gnome. My company uses a Sonicwall VPN server, and I'm having trouble getting my F11 laptop to connect. I've tried OpenS/WAN with no luck, and stumbled across Networkmanager's VPN setup. I can choose Cisco Compatible VPN (vpnc) which says it's compatible with Sonicwall IPSec-based VPNs. Is there a how-to I can check out, or has someone else got this setup to work?

Fedora Networking :: Create A Vpn - Pptp - Using The Networkmanager - Failed ?

I thought configuring a vpn would be a piece of cake, but it seems I'm missing something.

I'm attempting to create a vpn (pptp) using the networkmanager (0.7.1). I enter the gateway (I assume thats the server I'm trying to connect to) and my login information. What is the NT Domain?

When I try to connect it only tells me after a while that it failed to do so. How can I find the information on what went wrong in the process?

Fedora Networking :: NetworkManager Shows No Wireless Network?

The card is recognized by System--admin--network as the correct card (BCM43XG) and assigned eth1. However, NetworkManager shows no wireless network. I have a great signal on the same machine if I boot into a Windows partition.

Fedora Networking :: NetworkManager: Wireless Disabled By Default?

Jul 9, 2010

I have just installed Fedora 13 on my Lenovo Ideapad S12 (company laptop, evaluating Fedora for companywide use on all laptops) and a facing a weird problem with KDE4 and NetworkManager / knetworkmanager. The laptops wifi card is a Broadcom BCM4312 and I have successfully extracted the necessary b43 firmware. The b43 module loads on boot and the wireless card is activated and ready to use. However, NetworkManager doesn't seem to agree and has wireless disabled by default every time I reboot or even logout / login. I have to check the box manually after which it automatically connects to my wifi network at home.

Any idea where I can check that box automatically on boot?

Fedora Networking :: NetworkManager Won't Configure Network Until Login

Jan 9, 2011

I'm on F14 and can't seem to get NetworkManager to behave. I seem to remember being able to start my machine and see my static address configured right after boot. For some reason, that's no longer the case. When I finish a boot, I'm not getting any address until I log in. I've tried editing the ifcfg-eth0 both by hand and by the system-config-network. I've played with the "Available to all users" checkbox on both the nm config applet as well as the system-config-network gui. I can't seem to get it to behave predictably and give me my static without having to be in a gnome session.

Here's my ifcfg-eth0 from /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
