Fedora Networking :: Setup A Wireless Connection Between F10 And A HP J6480?
Mar 22, 2009
I am trying to setup a wireless connection between F10 and a HP J6480. I dnloaded the linux driver hplip-3.9.2, disabled the SELinux and ran the install. When I choose method of connecting - wireless it would not discover the device. The only way was to enable the USB descovery. Doing so, the computer found the printer and all is fine. What am I missing trying to enable the wireless connection. Note, that during this process, the USB was not connected. Also, I dual boot with Vista and I can run the printer wireless.
My adsl modem is in bridge mode. I can connect to internet via pppoe . pppoeconf recognise the pppoe in eth0 and setup a connection and I can use it. How can I setup a pppoe connection using pppoeconf so that it uses wireless ? I set the wireless mode to bridge in modem settings. But, after that the access point stopped appearing in "aps in range" in network manager and I can't connect to it. pppoeconf also doesn't recognise wlan0 as a valid pppoe link . but dat is normal since i don't think it can check if wlan0 is pppoe without wlan0 being connected to the modem's wireless network. How can I connect to Internet with modem in bridge mode and connections via wireless interface of modem? Is pppoe over wireless even possible ? coz the datalink layer of wlan is not ethernet rite?
I tried setting up a adhoc wifi in my debian laptop, so that my other laptop running Ubuntu could connect to it. Though the access point made on Debian laptop is visible on Ubuntu laptop, I could not establish a connection.Then I used create new wireless network tab to create a connection named test1. Though it shows up on Ubuntu box, i couldnt connect to it.
I have a computer with both wire and wireless connections. Wired connection works fine, but I would also setup the wireless connection.(I also have a dual boot on this cumputer with WinXP where both wire and wireless connections works fine. So, wire and wireless configuration of the actual router is not an issue here.)
At this point I just want to know the main/overview basic steps of setting-up the wireless connection on the computer. Also if you could suggest any links to guidelines for these steps. I have been thinking about something simple like this, but I might have missed a lotInvestigate if Ubuntu finds the wifi-hardware - the installed wifi card.Investigate if Ubuntu have an installed driver for this wifi-card.Configure the Wireless Network connection, like SSID.Unplug wire connection and reboot.
I'm trying to set up a wireless or wired network (wireless would be better...) to share my connection with my housemate, as well as with some devices. The only guide I found regarding this (I must admit, I didn't have much time to put into research), was dating back to 2005, and although doable, seemed somewhat confusing. Getting to the point: is there a way (maybe a standalone program, or some kind of plugin) to share a connection?
I am running FC13 on a Compaq Presario 2100 using a Broadcom BCM4306. I was able to get it running thanks to Fedora Unity Project. But It's a very unstable connection. I don't know what settings to adjust or enable or disable. It's not my router, this is the only wireless connection in the house that I have trouble with.
I installed the Kde desktop and i'm unable to setup a broadband dsl connection i have done the settngs in network manager gave password username service name etc. but the option for connection doesnt appear the connection works properly in windows as well as gnome 3 desktop but not in kde
I'm trying to set up a wireless connection to my personal wireless net. I have a Linksys N router and I am using a WMN 300n adapter. I found out how to get the connection manager but I'm not sure if i ams upposed to enter the MAC of the router and I know what the SSID is but the B**ssid(not quite sure what that was and I'm on a Win7 system right now)so any info to get my wireless connection now
In the process of making the jump from Ubuntu to Fedora and some of the file placement is catching me. Under Debian, I knew how to setup wireless from boot using /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/wpa_supplicant. Now, I know F12 uses /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf, but I can't seem to follow the details. Can I use the same commands issued in /etc/network/interfaces in the appropriate /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts file? Can I, basically, copy my /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf to /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf?
I have installed Fedora 12 on my inspiron 1545 laptop. I am trying to configure wireless and my gnome desktop shows it as disbaled. Following are the details. [root@Malapati devices]# uname -a Linux Malapati 22.214.171.124-70.fc12.i686 #1 SMP Wed Mar 3 05:14:32 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
In Gnome, I can get my wireless connection working no problem. However, my work PC uses KDE and I'm kind of used to it now, so I've installed KDE on to my Fedora system (v11, 64-bit). I cannot get a wireless connection with KDE at all.
As an aside, Gnome manages my dual monitor set-up just fine, whilst KDE doesn't - it gives me the same display on both screens.
why what is effectively a different front-end should make such a difference to the internal programs - a bit like respraying your car from red to blue and then finding out you need to change the engine as well.
I am trying to set up a wireless LAN using a Zdyas zd1211 USB adapter. I downloaded the .tar file, uncompressed it, then used make and make install. I then loaded the driver using modprobe -v zd1211. I have some questions:
A) After I performed all this, when I ran the Network Configuration Window, I can't find the Zdyas zd1211 driver in the list of supported wireless cards. Is there a configuration file I should edit to add this driver to system-config-network?
B) To which files should I add the modprobe, ifconfig and iwconfig commands or values so that the driver is automatically loaded and configured whenever I reboot the computer?
C) I am using FC8. What package supports the wpa supplicant?
am finding it very hard to get a wireless connection working, I am using openSUSE 10.3 (i586)and I have a Edimax EW-7711UTn USB adaptor, I have tried to follow the instructions on this forum and I think I have set it up using YaST2 but I still can not connect to the internet.
My Fedora 10 install runs from a single PC, from a single location. I'd like the connection, via wireless, to automatically connect to my home network. Right now, I suspect that NetManager scans all the options first.But that's a waste of time. How do I set things up to skip all that and just grab the only connection that will work?I have NetManager set up to "Auto linksys" with MTU set for "automatic" too. I've Googled around for this, but maybe have missed something. Too often, at login I do NOT connect though the network is available. I suspect there's a way to lock this in that I have not yet discovered...
I have fedora12 installed on my old laptop. I would like to use it as a wireless router so that I can use my new laptop without wires. The old laptop will be wired connected to the internet. I have already tried creating a wireless ad-hoc connection with the Network Manager and I manage to connect to the internet with my new laptop but only if I don't use any protection. If I want that connection to use WPA or WEP-128 it doesn't work!
I decided to give linux a try on an old laptop I had at my house. It's a Dell Inspiron (don't remember the model, will update as soon as I get home). Installation was flawless and extremely fast, but I cannot connect to my house's wireless network. I had exactly the same problem with Ubuntu, which is why I tried Fedora. I had installed Ubuntu over a year back and it had worked flawleslly, but I had to loan the pc to a friend so I reinstalled Windows.
Wireless drivers are Intel PRO/Wireless 2200 which should be included in the kernel. I am a complete Linux/Fedora n00b, just want to start learning.
I have recently installed Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server Edition, with no GUI. I can't connect to internet, and therefore I can't use commands like "apt-get update" I do not even know how to configure this server yet. I need my server to connect to Internet through my wireless card (I have no cable connexion for now).
recently I had installed fedora 10 in my acer aspire 4730Z laptop. I successfully configured wireless connection. But I am unable to get constant internet connection. I thought there must be some problem with my OS and I formatted fedora and installed Ubuntu 9 I faced the same problem there Again I installed back fedora , problem not solved Then I thought there must be some problem with my internet connection and I went to my friends house and tried linksys (I have netgear) same problem..I never had this problem when i had windows vistaThis is what my problem is "I AM ABLE TO ACCESS INTERNET FOR FEW MINS THEN CONNECTION FAILED " then i had to wait for few min then everything is fine!!!, then again same thing
I have a very strange problem with Fedora 12 and my wireless Broadcom 4311 card.After the installation of Fedora 12 the wireless card was visible but not activated. I did an extensive search in Internet and finally I got everything done. The card was visible and activated. I found my home network; the strength of the signal was nearly 100%.The problem is that although the card is visible and activated my browser is not working well. I can say that it is not working at all. Even now I am using other computer to write this message because Firefox cannot load any web page at all.
The strange part of the problem comes with the fact that when I open terminal window and when I am using yum everything looks OK. The speed is very low though.Does anybody have some ideas about the problem and its solution?When I use Windows on the very same computer everything is fine, the Internet speed is close to the maximum limits of my provider's speed which is 10 mbps.
I have a dual boot (XP Pro and F13) laptop. This laptop has a Ralink RT2501USB Wireless Adapter which works perfectly fine on XP. But when it comes to F13, adapter only works properly when I am physically next to my router. When I move few feet away the strength of the connection drops from 100% to around 40%. But even though 40% should be okay for slow connection to internet, I can't get any internet access at all. I have tried three different routers with same results on each.
When I boot same machine with windows XP, all works fine. I can move to any part of my house and I will still have the connection without any issues.I can see that RT73 driver is installed if I check in add remove program under system.I am not an expert but to me its seems that the drivers on F13 for RT2501USB are not as good as on windows?
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:
A friend who switched ISP's gave me his old Linksys WRT54-G wireless router. I went through the installation procedure and had a wireless connection up and running - smiley face. I had security set up for WPA, and decided to upgrade it to WPA2. Another smiley face. When I went to connect (had already done so successfully), I noticed it referred to my wireless as Linksys - I was expecting to see the SSID. So I started playing around in Network Manager and now I have things all effed up.
Don't know exactly what I did, but now I have no wireless. So I ran a few commands (lshw -C network, iwconfig, ifconfig, and iwlist scan), and looking at the results I see what appear to be inconsistencies in the output. I've posted them below, and make the following observations:
1. Under the lshw it refers to my wireless connection logical name as wmaster0, and has the correct MAC address, etc.
2. Under the iwconfig it says, 'wmaster0 no wireless extensions', but then refers to wlan0 as the wireless connection (although it does not seem to be running).
3. Under ifconfig I see both a wlan0 and a wlan0:avahi. The wlan0 has no IP, the wlan0:avahi does, but it is incorrect.
I have just done a new install of the latest opensuse 32bit and for some reason I cannot connect to the internet, when I click on mange connections the vpn tag is highlighted and all the other tabs are grayed out and I cannot select them. So I can't setup a internet connection wired or wireless. I was just using Kubuntu and did not have this problem. My card is broadcom.
