General :: Setting Up An Internet Connection?

Apr 1, 2010

I have just installed Linux Mint 8 Helena & it appears to be working well alongside my xp system. The problem I do have is setting up the much needed broadband connection. I have an adsl speedtouch330 usb modem, with as my server, which works just fine on xp hence this mail. Am I missing something obvious, or have I got myself into depths much deeper & complex than I thought.

Ubuntu :: Setting Up A Wired Internet Connection Through A Router?

Oct 13, 2010

The problem isn't with thew new computer but with my computer running Ubuntu. The problem is that I'm having trouble getting the Internet to work. Before the router I just plug my PC straight into the modem but now with the router I can't get on the Internet. I can get a connection to the router but no Internet. I know the it is not the router because I use my PS3 and it worked fine. I spend like an hour just trying to get the connection but can't figure out the Internet problem. What I did to get the connection is copy the ip address, Mac, and etc. from the PS3. Then I made a new connection and put the data in the IPV4 settings and it got a connection but I'm not sure if I did that right or just got lucky

Networking :: Setting Up Internet Connection With DHCP On Dreamlinux

Aug 30, 2010

I have tested several Linux Distros over the last weeks, and with all of them my DSL connection have been working out of the box (for intance Mandriva, Ubuntu, Mint). But it does not work on Dreamlinux, neither on Live CD or now where Dreamlinux is installed on my harddisk.

According to the guidelines provided by my Internet provider I need to use TCP/IP and activate DHCP. And make sure that PPPoE is not activated.

I see nowhere I can do this in Dreamlinux. In the controle panel i can run Wicd. Then I can chose to de-activate Wicd - this gives me an option of entering Adress, Networking mask, Gatway and Nameserver - for static ip it says - and this is the opposit of DHCP, right??

SO - what to do? Should I get a debian package or something? (Dreamlinux is using debian packages, as far as I could see)

Debian :: Setting Up Internet Connection On Dual Boot System

Dec 14, 2010

I am new to Linux and Debian. I have Compaq Presario R3000 laptop, which is 5 years old now. I have RealTek RTL8139 family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC. Currently I have a broadband connection at home. I have dual boot Windows XP Professional and Debian (which I installed a week ago through CD). I have done some preliminary tests for the network and I am posting the screenshots for the tests (e.g. lspci, ifconfig, etc.). I also did two more commands. For 'cat /etc/network/ifstate' the output was 'No such file or directory'. Same output was for the command 'cat /etc/network/options'.

Ubuntu Networking :: Setting Up Bluetooth Connection Between Two Computers Throws Connection Refused (111)

Apr 3, 2011

I'm trying to create a PAN (Personal Area Network) using a laptop (Siragon ML-1040) and my desktop computer, but I get the Connection Refused (111) error.

Blueman doesn't detect any network service between the two computers unless I start PAND on one of them and then it detects the NAP service. That, only after I enable the NAP/Workgroup services on the Services submenu in Blueman. However, it doesn't work neither with the NM plugins or without them (dhclient and that other one I can't remember the name of).

Any clues over here? I'm using pand 4.91 and blueman.

General :: Setting Up The Alternative Ad-hoc Connection In Case Primary Wireless Fails?

Jul 2, 2011

I have a device that is only accessible using wireless. By default it starts an ad-hoc wireless I can connect to. The problem is there is no internet access on the ad-hoc. So I'm connecting it to my router using the commands (its a gnu/linux):

iwconfig ath0 mode managed essid "ESSID"
ifconfig ath0 netmask up
route add default gw

I want to add it to start up script but I don't want to get locked out of the device forever if something happens to the router (its really old). Is there any way to check if the connection failed and create an ad-hoc instead if it failed?
