General :: Unable To Configure Wireless Adaptor In VMWare
Jul 8, 2011
I have configured my PC to run a linux 2.6 kernel in VMware and have no problem loading the image and using the wired network adaptor and the basic functions. I am having trouble finding the wireless network however. My Box has an " Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6250 AGN " wireless network adaptor. From what I can tell, this is supported by this version of linux. I have the adaptor enabled, my image settings as bridged, and the wimax enabled in the removable devices (connected). When I run WiCD manager I get the error message " Could not connect to wicd's D-Bus interface "
I set up an older computer with Ubuntu 9.10 and tried to get my Linksys AE1000 Wireless N adapter to work. My first mistake was not checking in advance to see if this adapter would work, but I have taken the leap and I am intent on making it work. I ran lsusb and it gives me a device number (13b1:002f) so I know it can be seen and I have also installed indisgtk the GUI for Wirless drivers. I have tried some suggestions from other posts to no avail.
I have recently installed openSUSE 11.3 I have a Belkin G Wireless Network Adaptor
Model: F5D7050 FCC ID: K7SF5D7050E
Linux doesn't seem to recognise this device at all. I had a look online from another PC for drivers. and they are provided by Belkin themselfs but only for Windows XP/Vista.Is it possible to get this working on openSUSE. I previously used this very same adaptor on an Unbuntu 10.2 PC and it worked with no problems at all.
I HAVE DUAL BOOTING SYSTEMVISTA + RED HAT 5.0ON VISTA I CAN RUN WI FIBUT ON RED HAT IT CANT WORK AND SAYS CANNOT ACTIVATE NETWORK DEVICE eth13c501 device eth1 does not seem to be present delaying initialisation.
I just switched from Ubuntu to Fedora 13 because I was unable to get Ubuntu to connect to wireless networks. I tried everything suggested in help and forums, and kept getting "Bad Password" with WICD and Network Manager. Now, with Fedora...I still can't connect.
Problem #1: The guide says to "...make sure that the relevant wireless interface (usually eth0 or eth1) is controlled by NetworkManager," and that I do this via: System>Administration>Network
However, there is no Network option under System>Administration.
Problem #2: I open Network Manager, which displays a list of networks. I click on mine, configure it with WPA and the right password, and it fails to connect: "The network connection has been disconnected."
Now I'm using a router to connect my computer to the Internet. I installed VMware Workstation 7 on my computer and installed a guest OS which is CentOS 5.3. Now I want to using putty to connect to the guest OS in my host computer, and I need the guest os can access the Internet too. How can I configure my host's network, guest os and my router?
I am trying to configure VMWare tools to work with the linux-virtual kernel, but every time I supply the headers path to vmware-config-tools, it rejects it. What should I do to configure it?I am using the path:/lib/modules/2.6.35-23-virtual/build/includeBut I get the rejection message:The path "/lib/modules/2.6.35-23-virtual/build/include" is not valid.It works with the generic version, so what am I doing wrong?
I have a older Dell desktop running a older version of Ubuntu 9.04. I recently got a Belkin N300 micro wireless usb adaptor so I could use it to connect to the internet. I have a Verizon MiFi 2200 wireless router that I use for internet access. The desktop won't recognize the new hardware. It came with a driver disc, but it's for windows.
I have a usb wireless adaptor that I sometimes need to remove from the computer, but often it locks up my system upon removal, even after typing "ifconfig rausb0 down" Is there a Linux equivalent to the windows "safely remove hardware" applet for usb devices?
I have been given an Edimax EW7318USG wireless adaptor,no drivers.I download 2008_0506 _RT73_Linux_STA_Drv220.127.116.11.tar.zip from [URL]..onto my Linux computer using an adaptor from another computer.but cannot find out what to do next:. I have just installed Fedora 11 from a Linux Format magazine DVD.
I just recently moved somewhere and the internet is wirelessly provided by the whole condo building. It is just a free and open network but I am trying to find a way to hook up my Xbox 360 to the internet. I do not have a wireless adaptor or a spare router, what I do have is my ubuntu laptop. Is there a way I can hook my xbox up to my laptop and bridge the connections so that I can finally connect to xbox live via my laptop?
The only connection to internet I have is via usb adaptor sitecom WL-352, under windows XP. Now I installed Ubuntu 10.10, and I cannot connect to internet via wireless. How can I do to use this adaptor?
I installed CentOS 5.4 on my desktop yesterday after facing crashes from Ubuntu 9.04 Everything worked fine and few didn't which I could resolve, but this problem is absolutely strange to me. I've USB wireless adaptor Belkin F5D7050 v4000 which uses a zydas zd1211 chipset. The problem is that I've not been able to connect to internet or even in the local network. (I've this another Laptop (Windows Vista) which can connect to internet and thus I can post and download stuff.)
I read the CentOS wiki [URL] to setup the wireless network and it asked me to download a firmware for it.. I downloaded and installed the firmware from the specified location but to no respite and I can't connect to network. now the strange thing is the result of iwconfig which was here even before installing the firmware. iwconfig shows
very new to using fedora and trying to install my belkin wireless adaptor is not working at all. It reads the disk but says there is an error.it still works fine on windows so i'm not sure how to fix this.
I've ubuntu 10.04 and I can't connect to router wi-fi with my new wireless adaptor usb (ralink 2870). I've tried various guides but nothing. The adaptor work fine with Windows and other linux distributions.
I have a desktop and a laptop. I have Netgear WGR614v9 Wireless Router connected to my desktop. Since my Laptop is pretty old I also bought a Netger Wireless Adapter for the sme model. Now when I connect the Wireless Adapter I am unable to connect to Wi-fi. I am new to Linux, after googling I ran "lsusb" command and it showed Netgear Wireless adapter and its version. Also in GUI when I open File Browser it also shows the Adapter detected but I am unable to connet the same to my router. Also the blue light on the adapter is not glowing.
I am using a virtual pc software called VMWare workstation ver 7.1. platform win 7. I installed a redhat linux 5 in vmware. I am able to access graphical mode but unable to access the console mode (ctrl+alt+f1....f6).
I'm unable to boot the LFS-6.6 which i've built on a vmware workstation 6.5. i had no trouble in installing all the packages and have managed to run all the test suites successfully w.r.t stable LFS-6.6. while booting i get 'kernel panic' and it says unknown device /dev/sda1 and unknow block (0,0). i've only one primary partition without any swap partition. i've a label assigned to /dev/sda1 and have included it in my fstab file. device.map shows 2 entries:
One for the floppy and the other for my harddisk which is- hd0 /dev/sda. this is for the 2nd time i'm stuck at a point after perfectly installing all the stuff as mentioned in the LFS-6.6 book. i've also noticed on this website the many users have similar type of issue. it would be great if somebody could help me. note: while configuring the linux, i've inbuilt everything required for my system, including support for ramfs and other required filesystems, scsi driver etc.
My host machine is on a intel core 2 duo processor. my virtual scsi hard disk is 3 GB in size and is a ext3 fs. scsi is configured with LSI Logic which is recommended by vmware while adding an hard-disk.
I have annoying problem. My setup is the following: debian Linux, 64 bits, VMWare workstation 7 host, with Windows XP running as guest. From Firefox, or Internet Explorer, I am unable to access few sites, for example nvidia.com, osdir. Basically get connection timed out, on the other hand ping works to those sites. Moreover, Slashdot loads very very slow and sometimes gets horrible text-only version.
everything works fine on Linux host
I suspect it has something to do with routing on Linux, I recall having similar problem long time ago, which was fixed by setting something in /proc.
I tried setting MTU and TCP window size on Windows lower, but did not help
i am trying to create an image of Slackware OS but vmware is not able to detect the disk. it gives me below error, "Unable to detect disks or volumes on the source machine. Make sure that the source is a supported linux distribution." can some one tell me what do i need to do to create the image.
