General :: 12 And Windows 7 - Get Wireless Connection To Work On The Network?

Apr 3, 2010

how to get my wireless connection to work on the network. I don't see anywhere to go to see if the wireless adapter is even setup in Fedora. My other question is when I boot up and get the options to select the OS the first one is Fedora but the other one says it is other.

I think that is is booting up the recovery partion of Windows. I don't know how to change it so that it is looking at the correct portition. I know it has something to do with the menu.lst file but when I try to open it says that I do not have premission. I am not sure where to go to edit it.

Slackware :: Getting A Wireless Adapter To Work In 13.1

Oct 11, 2010

So I recently installed Slackware 13.1 and now want to get my D-Link DWA-140 to work with it. However I'm quite an amateur at Linux and can't seem to figure out how to. After following many different how-tos and tutorials this is where I am: I got 2010_0709_RT2870_Linux_STA_v2.4.0.1 (supposedly USB driver)package and rt2870.bin (supposedly firmware) in my root catalog. What I have already done with them:

make & make install in 2010_0709~
blacklisting modules 2x00usb, 2x00lib, 2800usb
modprobe rt2870sta
copying rt2870.bin to /lib/firmware

Regardless of everything, my adapter still is not active.. and how can I make the OS load the module at startup?

Slackware :: How To Get WICD To Work With Wireless

Mar 10, 2010

My area does not have broadband, but I am able to get 3G on my cell phone. So, I've been tethering it to my laptop when needed, but what I'd like to do is set up my Slackware 13.0 box (which is configured to run as firewall/router/dhcp server so that I can just turn on my phone's wireless router program, and then share it out over the whole network in my house. I'm using a Gigabyte b/g wireless card, which has the RT61 chipset in it. I have NO problems at all getting the wireless card to work with just setting up rc.inet1.conf. The only problem here is when I need to take my cell phone with me, I will not be able to simply turn it back into a WAP, and have my Slackware box auto reconnect to it.

This is why I started looking into using WICD. I do NOT run X, so that's why WICD fits the bill, since it has a cli version. First I tried installing the version that came on the CD. No dice there. I removed that package, and tried the 1.7 package that's on the mirrors under current. I used slackpkg to install it. WICD will run, see wlan0, sees my WAP and a few others, but it fails to connect. It attempts to up the interface, and use dhcp to get an ip, but it fails everytime. My phone's WAP program only does WEP, but I can't get WICD to get an IP with our without WEP enabled. I made sure that my rc.inet1.conf file does not reference any interfaces.

Ubuntu Security :: Openvpn Won't Work On A New Network?

Jan 5, 2010

A couple of weeks ago I was using openvpn with a provider of PVNs on a home wifi network with no problems.I had installed openvpn using apt-get install and downloaded theopvn PVN files from the organization.erything worked fine.I would type sudo openvpn nameoffile.ovpn and then add my username and password during the installation process.However, when I try to do the same on an Ethernet network, the installation work fines (as above) and informs me that everything is connected (same as on the home Wifi network) but Firefox and all other software cannot connect to anything on the Internet.I contacted the organization who said the DNS was a problem and I needed to install resolvconf then modify each .opvn file using up /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf and down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-confcauses the installation to hang because it does not like openvpn pointing to an external file.Irrespective of the problem I have with this "solution", previously I could use openvpn without modifying the .ovpn files. It just worked! I wonder if anyone knows why using the exact same configuration on an Ethernet network (which I have not used before with openvpn) is causing problems

General :: Security Dangers Of Executing Malignant Code As A Standard User?

Jan 28, 2011

Slipping some (non-root) user a piece of malignant code that he or she executes might be considered as one of the highest security breaches possible. (The only higher I can see is actually accessing the root user) What can an attacker effectively do when he/she gets a standard, (let's say a normal Ubuntu user) to execute code? Where would an attacker go from there? What would that piece of code do?

Let's say that the user is not stupid enough to be lured into entering the root/sudo password into a form/program she doesn't know. Only software from trusted sources is installed. The way I see it there is not really much one could do, is there?

Addition: I partially ask this because I am thinking of granting some people shell (non-root) access to my server. They should be able to have normal access to programs. I want them to be able to compile programs with gcc. So there will definitely be arbitrary code run in user-space...

Slackware :: Wireless Keyboard In KDE Slow To Work

Nov 1, 2010

I have a Slackware 13.1 install on a Desktop PC with wireless keyboard and mouse. When I log in it takes a very long time(5 minutes or so) before the keyboard starts working, and f.ex. it's possible to do Alt-F2. The mouse also works slowly in this period, but it is working.

I'm running KDE 4.5.2 on Slackware current, but did have the same problems with the fresh install and KDE4.5.1. When the lag period is over everything is working as normal. I have turned of strigi indexing and could not find anything special when running "ps ax" or "top".

Ubuntu Security :: How Does Network File Sharing Work

Jul 29, 2010

How does network file sharing work in Ubuntu? Is it only enabled for the Public folder? Or does it vary by folder permission settings, specifically in that folder's 'Properties' and allow others access the folders?

I'm asking because someone at my work may have had a complete breach of their personal files in the /home/ directory from their folder permission settings. I want to know if regardless of everyone having access permission to the folder, if they need to drag it to the Public folder for it to be network shared.

Slackware :: Failing To SSH Between Boxes On Same Wireless Network

Feb 7, 2011

I've got a Linksys WRT54G router with the latest firmware. I've got an HP laptop connecting wirelessly and my main box connecting wirelessly with a Linksys WMP54G card. (As an aside, I used to have another box too with the same wireless card). Both are set up with a static IP. Both can access the Internet just fine. The router is on the main floor. My main box is in the basement. Both boxes are running fully patched versions of Slackware64 13.1. sshd is running on both.

I like to ssh into the other box when there's a security update or to copy a file from one computer to the other, etc. The problem is that I can't do that all the time. Even if the laptop is connected to the network and accessing the Internet, on my main box ssh will still "say ssh: connect to host ***** port 22: No route to host". It is my understanding that if I ssh in, it is accessing the other computer directly and not going through the router. What would cause this? Even if I bring the laptop within four feet of my computer, it still can't connect.

There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to when it will connect and when it wont. Sometimes I can access it just fine then about five minutes later I can't.

Slackware :: How To Connect To WEP Encrypted Wireless Network?

Jun 7, 2010

I recently swapped from ubuntu to slackware. It's all functioning, minus the wireless network. Decided to forgo my usual fluxbox desktop for the features in KDE until I get ready to swap back (not sure what programs I'll have to add to startup in flux yet). I'm using a toshiba satellite L305-S5957 with a Realtek 802.11b/g wireless-LAN adapter. Not sure if it's a hardware problem or if I just don't know how to connect with kde.

Slackware :: Connect To The Internet Via A Wireless Network?

Oct 1, 2010

I installed the new Slackware 13.1 64 on my laptop and I am trying to connect to the internet via a wireless network but i don't what is wrong with my configurations it just doesn't work.

I tried doing the following:
iwconfig wlan0 essid "ESSID"
iwconfig wlan0 key "Password"
iwconfig wlan0 channel NUMBER

Then i do dhcpcd -d but then no success after - i try to ping some sites, no reply, i put new dns servers in resolv.conf, still no results, i tried to ping some ips and it says network unreachable, it just doesn't work at all.

I did iwlist wlan0 scanning and it found all the wireless networks, so the adapter is not the problem, the problem here is the procedure. How to do it properly so it will work ? I can connect via ethernet by easy configuring eth0 but i have no success for wireless networks. I read everything there was on google, i searched a lot of sites, i tried a lot of different methods but NONE of it worked.

Slackware :: USB Wireless Card Recognized But Cannot Connect To Network?

Dec 17, 2010

Hi I have istalled a D-Link wireless adaptor - with the help of this forum.

It is up and running - the light flashes and lsusb identifies it correctly, so does iwconfig.

I can, however, not connect to the network, and I noticed the following errors on boot up.

Trigering udev events: /sbin/udevadm trigger -- type: failed /etc/rc.d/rc.M: wlan0 Error for wireless request; "Set Nickname" (8BIC) information; "Any ESSID" Set failed on device wlan0; operation not supported.

Lower down I get

Starting rt2870 drivers . . . /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1: wlan0 information "Any ESSID"
Error for wireless request "Set Nickname" (8BIC) set failed on device wlan0 : Operation not supported

I have on two occassions seen sugstions to use wicd, but how do I use that?

Slackware :: Setup Wireless Network With WPA2 Encryption?

Jul 7, 2010

I followed [URL] set up my wireless network with WPA2 encryption. It works now and knemo says:Encryption: active. However, "iwconfig wlan0" says Encrytion key: off:

wlan0 IEEE 802.11abgn ESSID:"blitz"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.472 GHz Access Point: 00:25:9C:DE:D3:7D
Bit Rate=0 kb/s Tx-Power=15 dBm
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Encryption key:off


So is there anything wrong with that "Encryption key: off" statement? I suspect that encryption key only applies to WEP, but not to WPA2 encryption, but I am not sure. So my question is, can I ignore that statement and assume that my encryption is fine?

Besides, where does knemo read the information about encryption from? As I mentioned, knemo detects that the encryption is active. Are there any other commands to make sure that my encryption is safe and well?
