Fedora :: Wifi Stop Connecting After Windows Boot?

Jun 29, 2011

I first booted into Fedora and it connected to the Interneting was working brilliantly. I then booted into windows for a session of TF2. After I booted back into Fedora, it wouldn't connect to my network.I did fix this by doing a hard reset on my router, BT homehub. It's just that I don't want to reset and apply custom settings all the time.

Ubuntu Networking :: Stop Wifi Radio Killswitch From Disabling USB Wifi Device

Jul 3, 2010

My laptop has an internal wireless device and a button to turn it on/off, but since it has bad reception I use an external USB wireless adapter.The problem is that if I turn the internal wireless device off using the button, it also turns the USB wireless adapter off.Is there anyway to use the killswitch (the button) only for the internal wireless device?This only started to happen in Ubuntu 10.04.

Ubuntu Installation :: Stop Hoarding Everything And Share Boot Screen With Windows Xp?

Mar 18, 2010

I installed windows xp on my tobisha satellite l305, then installed ubuntu 9.10..my friend's laptop had vista and was SOOO bogged down from viruses, so he wanted to try ubuntu. We installed ubuntu, leaving the other half of his hard drive unallocated.Afterwards we installed xp, on the unallocated space, but it wouldn't let me dual boot... it would boot directly into xp, however, the ubuntu partition was still there because through the file system in xp we could find it.So then run gparted on a live CD, delete the ubuntu parition, leaving it unallocated, then installed it over that unallocated space.

now, when i dual boot it shows on the grub page the option to boot to ubuntu, ubuntu (recovery) and these two memory test things that when i ran it just shows a BIOS looking screen.testing my memory. However, on the desktop i have mounted 79gb which has all the windows files in it.so how do I tell ubuntu to stop hoarding everything and share the boot screen with windows xp?

Fedora :: Connecting To A Windows VPN?

Dec 13, 2010

I need to connect to a windows vpn now. I do not have time to spend days attempting to get a connection going. All previous posts here, and those coming up in google do not at all describe how to do this. So it begs the question: How to simply connect to a vpn using a Linux client? (Do not link some where that does not contain instructions, actually give a description on how to connect)

Networking :: UDP - Stop Netcat Connecting?

Dec 9, 2010

I'm wondering if I can use netcat to listen to a UDP port and display ALL incoming packets, no matter where they're from. If I just do 'nc -u -l 1234' then netcat will listen for incoming packets and connect() to the source address of the first one it sees (I can see this with strace). Is there any (standard) way to stop the connect() call? I can make a hack to block connect() with a function of my own, but that'd be ugly

Red Hat / Fedora :: How To Stop DHCPD Service During Boot

Jul 19, 2010

I am a Linux newbie using Oracle Enterprise Linux version 4 update 7 (its almost similar to Redhat Linux). While going through tutorials, I tried to configure the DCHP service and set it to start after every boot via the command

chkconfig dhcpd on

When I boot my Linux,the OS hangs when it tries to start the dhcpd service.Thus,I cannot log into my Linux and shutdown the service. How can I go around this and shutdown the DHCP service to enable my Linux to fully load after a boot?

Debian :: NetworkManager Not Connecting To WiFi Automatically

Oct 23, 2015

just installed Debian 8.2 on my ThinkPad X230 laptop using netinst. I installed only basic system and then install packages I need manually. Now I stuck with NetworkManager and Wi-Fi. NetworkManager and its applet (package network-manager-gnome) installed, I can connect to my Wi-Fi network, but after reboot a dialog asking for passphrase for keys appeared and even after entering correct passphrase NetworkManager does not connect to the Wi-Fi, so I need to connect it manually.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.10 - WiFi Not Connecting Anymore

Dec 13, 2010

I am working with ubuntu (gnome) 10.10 maverick 64 bit on a HP pavilion 2713ca. I have installed the Broadcom sta driver for a BCM4328 wifi driver. After setting wpa security with my password, the wifi network worked for many weeks. However, in the last few days it does not connect no more. I have tried to reinstall SSID. And I have checked to see if eth1 was still there:

Ubuntu :: Connecting To A Dynamic WEP WiFi Network?

Apr 15, 2011

I am having a bit of a problem connecting to a dynamic WEP WiFi network.

Apr 15 11:39:31 MyComputer NetworkManager[943]: <info> Activation (wlan0/wireless): access point 'MyUniversityWifiSSID' has security, but secrets are required.
Apr 15 11:39:31 MyComputer wpa_supplicant[1002]: CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED - Disconnect event - remove keys


I have googeled that specific error about the WEP line, and it *was* a bug at one time, but according to the bug tracker, it has been fixed. Not so, me thinks.

So, does the specific error above look familiar and does anybody know of a way to fix it?

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Wifi Using Terminal

May 3, 2011

im using minimal ubuntu 10.04 and im having trouble connecting to wifi using the terminal. the wifi worked perfectly on the desktop version. i followed this guide [URL] and looks like then i used '/etc/init.d/networking restart' and get this now it seems ive disabled wlan0 as $ sudo lshw -C shows

i tried to enable it again by using 'sudo ifup wlan0' but i get a few errors i think the 2nd errors may be because i tried to download another driver for the wireless using 'wget [URL] and then 'dpkg -i rt3090-dkms_2.3.1.3-0ubuntu0~ppa1_all.deb'

Slackware :: Connecting To WiFi On Startup With Shared WEP Key

Apr 24, 2011

I've recently acquired an old HP Pavilion ZT3000 and have decided to install Slackware, but I'm having trouble with the whole rc.inet1 configuration stuff. I've been able to connect to the internet manually with the following command:
Code: iwconfig eth0 essid [access-point-name] key restricted [my-wep-key]
(...and then use "dhcpcd" to get an ip address.)

As you can see, eth0 is my wireless interface. Not exactly sure why (the comp has a IR port,wifi and Ethernet.) I'm using a shared WEP key (I know the security implications of WEP). The key being shared is the reason restricted is a parameter in the iwconfig command. I've been trying to get it working through /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 but I can't seem to setup rc.inet1.config correctly I'm not sure where to set the key to "shared"

I've searched the forums and I could use the working iwconfig command with ./bash_profile as a startup script. This has the problem I need sudo (ie setup /etc/sudoer), which seems like a lot of work, when rc.inet should work. And it also has the problem of having to enter my password THREE times (login, sudo iwconfig and for sudo dhcpcd) which is horrible (and I don't even know how it would work when I set X to begin on startup again). I probably could also install "wicd" but having to ferry across files and trying to setup things without the internet is a pain.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Stop The Wifi Roaming

Mar 23, 2010

How can I stop my wifi roaming when I don't want it to? I connect to the internet through one of a number of hotspots in my area, all with the same name. Frequently, sometimes several times an hour, my machine will spontaneously switch to a much weaker hotspot than the one I normally use. This causes an enormous amount of disruption, with today's disruption really taking the biscuit: I was in the middle of an international VOIP conversation with a potential employer.

I can't remember whether things were better when I was using wicd instead of network manager, but wicd had a huge hit on my system resources (2% or more of CPU), so it's not a great solution. In the KDE interface to Network Manager you can specify which ESSID to connect to, but these settings are ignored.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Neighbors Wifi But Not Mine?

Jan 8, 2010

I am a newbie trying to setup wifi using 9.10 on a compaq nx9010 . The driver is activated for the broadcom 4320 rev 2 chipset. the wifi light is on.I can connect to my neighbors's unsecured network, but not mine which is using personal WPA2 security.

I am using a lynksys Wireless-N Broadband Router WRT160Nv2 I have installed WICD and removed the gnome network manager WICD tries to validate authentication which fails. then it tries to obtain an ip address which fails. finally it says: CONNECTION FAILED: UNABLE TO GET IP ADDRESS". meanwhile it is showing the wireless network at 100% signal.

last nite tried changing wifi channel, changing to WEP, installed and tried WPASUPPLICANT and WPA_GUI. Unfortunately , nothing worked. The wifi controller was able to assosciate with the network but could not authenticate. I'm wondering if the passphrase that I type in on the computer is somehow being turned into a hexidecimal or something so that it does not match what the router has as the pass phrase.
