General :: Configured System To Connect To A Wireless Network On Bootup?
Mar 16, 2011
I have configured my system to connect to a wireless network on bootup, but now every time I boot I have to wait and watch it connect (it outputs some dhcp connect stuff) which delays the boot process. is there any way to just initialize the script and then go on with the boot process instead of letting it output some pointless crap and waiting for it to end?
I am using Fluxbox as a window manager, and sometimes not using X at all, so I need to be able to be connected to some pre-selected wireless networks without the assistance of Network Manager.
I remember I used to be able to do this in Debian by editing /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf, but it seems it has been moved. wpasupplicant is installed on this system however, I tried to do an apt-get install and it said that it was already installed.
While I was installing Debian (testing), it asked for an external source for my wireless card firmware. As I didn't have a flash drive handy, I had to skip this step and do the setup through a wired network connection.
After the initial install. I manually installed the ipw2200 firmware (I have an Intel Pro/Set Wireless 2200bg card). It looks like this worked because I was getting a missing firmware error when I was booting up previously, and it went away after I did this. I be able to check with modprobe? I'm a bit rusty with this.
I checked my /etc/network/interfaces file and it does not look like my wireless card is in there, I see the loopback and the wired card eth0.
This is my ideal setup:
1. Attempt connecting to wired network (if present) 2. Attempt connecting to wireless networks in this order: a. Home (WPA protected, hidden SSID) b. Work (WEP protected) c. Library (Open, No security)
wifi card:atheros ar5007egOS: openSUSE11.4My laptop can't connect on network after system hibernate. It has been asking me for enter the wifi password. But when I input the wifi password it still can't connect on network. I have to reboot it.
Mac OS X has built-in support for internet connection sharing through the settings as in the following screenshot:
This works very well with other Macs, but I'm having problems connecting to such a network using Linux. I tried all combinations of configuration, double- and triple-check the WEP password but could never get an IP address. In a last effort I also tried without encryption, but still couldn't get my Linux box connect to the network.
I don't know if Windows has the same problem. Now I'm suspecting two things. Either I misconfigured something in my Linux installation, or OS X is doing something smart and makes it difficult for non-Apple devices to use the network (I also tested with an iPhone, it connects very well, unsurprisingly). Now what is wrong? What do I have to do?
Tried the live boot of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on my work PC today (it has Windows Vista on it and it is literally DEAD slow). There's a wireless network in the office and the PC has a wireless network card installed. The problem was the following - I booted up Ubuntu, the "tray" was showing the network icon. I click on it, it shows me the list of all available wireless networks. I click on the one that belongs to our office, enter the password, click "Connect".
Now, here comes the problem - after "loading" for some three minutes, the same window pops back up. No errors, no messages, absolutely nothing. The password is correct because the Windows installation and the other PCs in the office can connect just fine. Anyone knows what could be the problem? The drivers are apparently fine if it can find the networks and detect the connection encryption correctly.
I am a LINUX newbie using Ubuntu. I love it so far but I am having issues. I cannot connect to the wireless network that I am using with my other Windows PC. The problem in my opinion is that the wireless device I use isn't operating. No light comes on the device. I am not sure how to "find hardware" with Ubuntu.
I have ubuntu 10.04 netbook edition running on dell mini 10 and i cannot connect to my wireless network. I entered in everything on the editing wireless network section of ubuntu. However when I try to enter in the mac address as soon as I start typing the apply button becomes unactive. I have entered it before and I did connect to my wireless net with my netbook. However I tried top connect this morning and I wouldn't let me! I did not connect automatically to my wireless net work as it had before. I am typing this message on my desktop using the same internet connection so, I know that the net is active.
I just install arch linux yesterday. And I have an issue with the wireless connection. I can see wireless connections, when i click on thet networkmanager. But I cannot connect. If I remove WPA or any security from the wireless connection(from my wifi router) I can connect to wireless network without any issue. But when there is any security is involved to the connection it does not connect. How to connect to wireless. I've been using debian for a long time, but there was no any issue with this connecting thing. I am new to arch linux.
I was told by an experienced Linux user/IT professional that older Broadcom wireless cards had embedded code preventing access through non-Windows OS's. I was told that there were drivers that were basically "hacks" for skirting this issue. I've tried two different drivers and neither seems to be doing the trick. My current driver is the "Broadcom STA wireless driver".

Here's what the terminal says about my wireless card:
Basically, I need a command line solution for sending an HTTP POST request essentially clicking on a button. For future reference, it'd be helpful to know how to send a POST request with, say, a username and password if I ever find myself in that situation in another hotel or airport.
i was browsing one of my friend hard drive using knoppix live CD, i was amazed to find that all the folder which he uses was empty, there was no files present in them, for example there was a folder in /usr/local named web, but when i browsed that folder using knoppix it was empty.I searched for files in every partition but still no result found.
After some time when i placed hard disk back and booted the PC normally, everything was in its proper place. Then i thought to make image of the hard drive and use it on my PC, the image booted well, but still those particular files were missing. I want to know how is that possible? Is there any way to get files from the remote system during bootup?
I would like an old desktop box to use my laptop as a router to access the internet. Here is my setup:
I have one ethernet port in the side of my laptop which I want to use to get internet access to my desktop computer. The laptop is connected to the LAN via a wireless link. Both systems run Linux. The desktop autoconfigures itself using DHCP. The laptop is a Kubuntu system. I do not have any crossover cables, though wireshark on the laptop sees the DHCP requests from the desktop just fine, so I doubt that I need one.
I am a user or consumer of Knoppix 5.1 and Knoppix 6.2, I see in 6.2 version a very usefully tool, an icon in task bar thats help my internet connection in auto, even if I use a mobile modem like Huawei E160, I only select a 'Auto Mobile Broadband (GSM) connection' and, voila, internet is active. Into version 5.1 don't exist this option. I need to find packages like network-manager.... and all relatives and install in 5.1 in correct order to success.
I have recently downloaded live cd of Puppy Linux and boot successfully from it. But, I could not connect my BSNL EV-DO datacard as no wireless network connection is detected by Puppy. What should I do? How can I configure my BSNL EVDO Datacard over Pupply Linux? Plz.
On Opensuse 11.2, I would like to connect my ipod touch to a wireless ad-hoc network of my laptop. I have no wireless WIFI-router at home, so I have to use the laptop as a router to the internet. I know I have to enter a static IP adres and my router's address, but where ? I haven't found any place under network tools to do this, only saw some fields with SSID's and MAC addresses to fill in.
The problem with my wireless network. I have Dell DV6 Pavilion 2115 eg laptop and i installed Ubuntu 11.4 and internet and wireless worked, until i reboted my system it has disapear. I cant no longer to connect to a wireless network. It dont shows me any wireless network. My wireless card is Atheros AR 9285 802.11b/g/n Wifi Adapter
I clicked "Network Settings", and I found that the ip address was wrong, which is "192.168.1.10/24", and netmask field is empty, so I modifed the configuration file located in /etc/sysconfig/network, named ifcfg-wlan0, added one line(NETMASK= '255.255.255.0'), saved it and reboot the system. After rebooting the system, I still found the ip address is wrong and netmask field is empty, so I have to use ifup command to activate my card manually every time the system starts.
I am having a little trouble connecting to my wireless network. Running Fedora 10 32 bit.I'm trying to connect to a hidden wireless network. I updated the firmware for my driver but apparantly the driver is still not working. Broadcom has a driver from their website for Linux 32 bit systems. Should I attempt to install it? I read a post where the driver is built into the system kernel. If so I would need to blacklist the one of the drivers. Correct?

I'm moving from other distros. and I'm currently loving openSUSE and I'm probably going to stick with it for a long time.I have already googled for this, but I found no solution, but I figured this should be a common problem... Does google searches inside this forum?Now... for my problem, whenever I hibernate (suspend to disk) or sleep (suspend to ram) I can't resume my wireless connection nor connect to another.I don't know if this is an issue if I use cables, because I simply don't with my netbook:The hardware in question is an ASUS 1005HA eee pc, running openSUSE version is 11.3 fully updated. Didn't mess with wireless connections, nor kernel or hibernate settings
After installing 11.4, I need to type in the command to update the firmware for a broadcom wifi adapter. Then I needed to reboot, twice, before the system knew to use the adapter (where the adapter wifi light goes from orange to blue).
Then I needed to add my wireless network and type in my key. But the key does not take. If I click on my wireless network icon, it just re-asks for the key and does not connect nor give any other message. Network icon continues to display no connection.
So I need to reboot again.
When the system starts again, the adapter is blue, I click on the icon for my wifi network and it connects without asking for my key and I can then set to start my wifi by default.
All settings are correct as far as i can tell. The wep key works on all my windows boxes. When i have connect automatically enabled it never tries to connect. if I go to edit it it pops kde wallet up i put in credentials. wallet goes away then nothing happens. if i double click connection to my router also nothing happens. I have the wep key in there and i even made it visible to make sure.
