For the last 3 or so hours I have been trying in vain to simply give my mobile phone wifi internet access from my netbook. I have tried to google and follow some howto's and guides, but they're either too old or don't explain it very well. I'm fairly new to use of Linux and of wireless networks, but can handle setting them up in Windows. So basically, having said that, I believe I mostly understand how this whole thing is supposed to work theoretically but I just feel as though I lack the experience to jump the wireless hurdle AND the Linux hurdle at the same time. I have provided some information below.
- Setup is based on Lucid netbook remix install with a Maverick kernel update due to lack of driver support for wireless NIC - I can confirm wireless does work properly for connection purposes - I followed [URL] and kind of followed [URL however I couldn't even tell how to run Network Manager, even though Synaptic tells me it is installed - When I ran into problems trying to install ipmasq I found [URL] and followed what the response told me to which allowed me to restart the dnsmasq and the dhcp3-server at least - I have restarted the entire netbook several times throughout the process.
I am trying to establish an adhoc connection in my ubuntu 10.10 and share my cable internet throughout this connection with my Android phone. I have read some guides but I couldn't be successful. (I have another windows mobile, and it couldn't connect too). I have installed Firestarter in order to enable internet sharing. My main Problem is that, no one can obtain IP adress from the adhoc connection, whether Firestarter is active or not. What should I do in order to make the other devices gain IP address from this connection. If I have to set static IP what should I do exactly?
I did search, but could not find a solution.Right I've installed Ubuntu Server 10.10 on an old machine, installed fine and the system is running. I have a windows 7 desktop that is connected to the internet via wireless. The desktop then has an ethernet connection which is shared to the ubuntu server. The network looks like this.
Modem > Router > Desktop > Switch > Ubuntu Server My problem here is that there appears to be no connection from the server to the desktop. The server cannot connect to the internet.
When i ifconfig the ubuntu machine shows.eth0 link encap:Ethernetinet address: 192.168.137.2 Bcast:192.168.137.255 Mask 255.255.255.0 However on the windows desktop (the machine sharing the internet) these are the details for the connection to ubuntu server.ip 169.254.170.50 mask 255.255.255.0
is this a dhcp problem? is my server configured wrong?
I have internet access through 3G/4G USB dongle direct into my Ubuntu 10.04 box. Works great! Now I would like to share this connection out through my Netgear WGR614 wireless (and wired) router. Any clues? I've tried the simple (GUI) instructions using Network Manager, but just can't seem to get it right. Previously, I had DSL and this plugged nicely into the WGR614 and internet and ethernet access was had by all. Now, I'm a bit confused on how to get the sharing (ethernet and wireless) between my Ubuntu box and the wired/wireless network while at the same time getting Internet access to all through the Ubuntu box.
I am totally new to Linux. I was not able to connect to internet using the default network manager in Ubuntu, so I set up the internet connection using "sudo pppoeconf" and it works great. I want to share this internet connection with another PC which runs Windows XP. Please, can anybody give me step by step instructions about how to do that? (instructions for configuring both Ubuntu and windows machine, A GUI will be very helpful) Both my Ubuntu machine and windows PC have static IP. And I dont want anyone to use this internet connection except the windows PC.
I've been able to make my server connect to my clients but not able to share the internet connection. I've been searching around but haven't come across an answer yet. Hoping someone here will point me in the right directiong. I have the following setup running. I'm trying to make an internet connection go through my server but haven't been able to get it to work.
I am running Ubuntu 10.10, and I would like to use my computer to share the internet connection from an ethernet port. For example, I would like to set up my computer as a wireless access point so I can create a network that other computers can connect to for internet.
Its a case of ".... wireless network connection active but still not internet connection .."I am using WEP - 128 key ... Works when I connect directly using ethernet cable ... but not wireless (pci and wireless router)
I have two linux laptops. Currently, I'm using both of them at work, side-by-side. Now the problem is, I'm connected to a wireless router, but the wireless only works on one of the laptops. So I'm stuck with one laptop that has no access to the internet. Both machines do, however, have working ethernet nic cards. So, I was wondering if I could use the laptop with the wireless connection to share the internet connection with my other linux machine and access the internet on both of them. Or as an alternative, just use the internet on the machine without wireless and be able to switch back and forth, that would increase my productivity like 30 fold.
everything works fine, clients can connect to the vpn server with no problems and they can ping local machines! but no internet access through the vpn connection unless i uncheck the default gateway option on my client machine which is not what i want. I want my clients to get my server's ip address. my server is behind a router (router's ip : 192.168.0.1 | server's local ip: 192.168.0.100) so i used localip 192.168.0.100 & remoteip 192.168.0.234-238 in pptpd.conf. it think there is something wrong with routing or firewall rules, because it seems that the DNS resolution works .. when i try to browse a website my browser says "Waiting for xxxxx.com..." and it stays on that stage forever ! the funny part is that google.com works fine (don't know how).
p.s : * I have already opened the port in on my router. I even tried it locally to make sure that the router is not the problem here. * already added ms-dns 220.127.116.11 / ms-dns 18.104.22.168 to pptpd-options. (found another guide that suggested to do this, before adding these two lines even dns resolution was not working.)
I tried to setup sharing to connect Ethernet and wireless. I want Ethernet connected to desktop A, and wireless connected to another laptop(B), with my laptop acting as an AP. I set the network settings in Firestarter: Internet for wireless, local network for Ethernet. I want to share Internet from laptop B over the network. Internet won't work from my laptop since it seems to use the wrong interface.(Since the desktop is sharing Internet, although not on Internet usually when connected via Ethernet. And of course DNS/Gateway IPs aren't set for wlan0 since it's acting as an AP.) SMB wouldn't work for desktop A and laptop B: laptop B could detect desktop, but reports error "Path not found".
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and trying to use Internet Connection Sharing through my Dell Mini 9 laptop.
The incoming internet is from wireless The outgoing internet is from Ethernet I am using a crossover cable as I have heard this is necessary I followed the 9.10 method on my Auto Eth 0 connection Here is a link to the Ubuntu Documentation I used The computer I am trying to share to does not pick up the internet being shared from the cable.
I have a mobile broadband usb modem that I get my internet connection from, and I would like to share this connection through a router that is connected to the same computer via ethernet. I'm running Ubuntu 9.10.
I want to use the wifi card in my laptop to share my internet connection to my Android Phone.Android phones don't support Ad-hoc networks yet (maybe not ever) so I need to the shared network in Infrastructure mode not ad-hoc mode.Using Ubuntu 10.04, If I click on the NetworkManager Applet ( 0.8 ) and select Create new wireless network, it will create an ad-hoc network, I then tried changing this to infrastructure, but it didn't work.Is there some way of modifying this created network to make it appear as infrastructure, or alternatively create a shared internet connection in infrastructure mode?
What can you recommend software to link sharing, and priority services such as VoIP, email, web, ftp others. The only thing I got it [URL], but it is not developed since 2008 ri do not know if it works.
I hope this diagram shows my intentions, how i may have an internet connection via phone or wlan1 share it with eth0 and wlan0
Anyway as i said, i have done _some_ of this, this is where i get stuck i did this (while as SU)
I then configured dnsmasq using the settings on that page
I then plugged my laptop into the switch and tried to connect- IT WORKED I then plugged my computer into the switch - IT DIDN'T xbox 360 didn't work.
But the laptop still did
I used firestarter along side this setup to see connections, nothing was blocked (bar dns which i unblocked) and my laptop still worked after
The xbox wasn't able to get an IP adress, the laptop did (192.168.254.246) nor was the computer
I can give more data on request, but.... after i restarted nothing worked, i did the settings again, nothing worked, eth0 was never ready, and you can't connect it to the switch. i'm new to networking; i'd call myself an adept novice regarding linux itself, and all computers can be assumed to be using ubuntu 10.10
I have discussed sharing an internet connection with my neighbor so we can both save money. We both have multiple computers connected to consumer grade routers. I've tinkered with WDS configurations but it was very unreliable and cumbersome to manage for reasons I won't get in to here. I'm thinking of getting my ubuntu server box to connect to my neighbor's wifi (via a USB wifi adapter) and share the connection through my router to my own subnet, (wired and wireless).
Can anyone shed some light on how I can best accomplish this?I can see a number of hurdles with this, maybe there are some I have yet to discover:Getting the USB wireless adapter to connect and stay that way via commandline.Configuring ICS from the USB connection to ethernet out to my router.Probably moving DHCP duty from my router to my server.Getting it all to work reliably well.
I have two laptops connected to each other with a crossover cable. One laptop runs vista and has internet connection sharing enabled and the other laptop has a new installation of ubuntu server 10.10.
The LAN network device is configured as 192.168.0.1 and is on subnet 255.255.255.0. The ubuntu network device is configured as 192.168.0.1, is on subnet 255.255.255.0, and uses gateway 192.168.0.2. Those are the values that I entered in /etc/network/interfaces.
The laptops are able to ping each other but I am not able to connect to the internet on the ubuntu machine. Am I missing something here? I did
Code: sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
and also rebooted the ubuntu machine but no luck. I am unable to update apt-get.
A friend of mine is trying to setup internet connection sharing in Ubuntu, which is something I've never dealt with before. Here's the situation:One desktop PC is dual-booting Ubuntu and Vista. This box is connected wirelessly to the router and can access the internet just fine. The desired setup is to have an xbox360 connected (wired) to the desktop PC, allowing it to share the internet connection.
1) A crossover cable would need to be used between the desktop PC and the xbox. 2) The xbox would still have the router's internal IP as the default gateway (I have zero experience configuring networking on an xbox... I hope these options are easily available). 3) The internal IPs can all be on the same network (i.e. router = 192.168.1.1 ; desktop = 192.168.1.100 ; xbox = 192.168.1.101) 4) IP forwarding would need to be enabled on the Ubuntu host
Is there anything I'm overlooking or just oversimplifying, or should that just about do it?
I have an ubuntu 7.10 ICS server that works fine and I have routed my traffic using firestarter to my windows PC. my server's IP is 192.168.0.1 and my windows client is 192.168.0.2. now, I have bought another PC and I want to assign 192.168.0.3 to it and connect it to ubuntu server. in windows, all I needed to do was to connect the first client to first network card, second one to second network card, bridge two connections in my server, assign 192.168.0.1 to the network bridge in my server and 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.0.3 to my clients, then share my internet connection. I also could access shared files in any computer from all of them. can I have the same functionality with a linux server?
I'll make a list to make it easy if you don't wanna read the whole post:
things I want:
1. assign one ip address to multiple interfaces in linux, making them bonded.
2. sharing the internet connection with both clients.
3. ability to use all shared files over a network.
I just built my first pc, installed ubuntu 9.10 and tried connecting to the net through my ethernet cable and all that happens is it says cannot find server. Do I need to install network settings & if so what & where,or should it automatically detect them? As this is my first build I am a novice but am willing to listen & learn.
I have several Proxy severs set up at our business. I always do the same basic config, except for my version of Fedora (I always grab the newest).
I put 2 nics in a machine Load Squid, Dansguardian and Firestarter. I use Firestarter to direct the surfing traffic from my LAN out a cable modem that I have for each store. This lessons the bandwidth on the T1.
Easy enough. My problem is Firestarter has always been a little flaky. But as of F11 the gui wont stay up for more than a few minutes at a time. It still functions, but you have to be quick if your going to use it because it will inevitable crash.
So I suppose it's time to start doing this the correct way and using IP Tables. Does anybody have a resource they can point me to that will help me understand how to do this? It looks like this might be as simple as setting it up with the GUI Firewall tool that comes with F12 but I'm still not exactly sure how.
This configuration works perfectly on my router at my house which has the IP of 192.168.0.1
However at my friends house he has a router with the IP adress of 192.168.2.10 or 192.168.2.7*, I don't remember exactly but I'll find out tonight. I have tried changing my IP settings on my xbox and eth0 to no avail. I noticed instantly that the XBOX IP is the same as my friends router. what the new settings would be, or simply changing the router's IP.
However there is also an issue with the DNS servers. I can't find them anywhere on the router or on the router box itself. I heard that I could point it towards my default gateway however.
i have an evdo connection with which i connect to the internet. i have been trying to share this connection for quite a few days from my lucid machine to a windows 7 pc but have failed. i have tried dhcp3-server, firestarter, network manager's built in capabilities but have failed! today i manually configured da windows 7 pc to an ip address within da range which network manager ws assigning when 'shared to other computers' ws selected and it worked! Now da question is how do i do it automatically? dhcp3-server never starts, it always fails with the error 'not configured to listen' or sumthng like it! Plus i want the wireless of my laptop to make an ad hoc connection to my mobile fone, which is also no possible...i think its some problem with da dhcp server.
