General :: Connecting To The Internet Both Wirelessly And With An Ethernet Cord Into The Router
Oct 11, 2010
I just installed Fedora Core on my Dell Inpsiron B130 laptop and I am having trouble connecting to the internet both wirelessly and with an ethernet cord into the router. When trying to configure my network, I dont recognize any of the ethernet adapters in the drop down list. I have been told that my wireless card is Linux compatible (dell y8029 dell wireless 1370 802.11/a/b/g mini pci). My ethernet card is a B130 Broadcom Ethernet Driver which isnt in the drop down menu either.
I read that I need to download an ndiswrapper but I dont know where to find this download AND even if I could download it to a zipdribe, I have trouble opening a USB flash in Linux becuase its not a "valid block device". This is after the command "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbflash"
I am using an HP dm3 1030us laptop. The wireless adapter is and Atheros 5009. I have a fresh and clean install of Ubuntu Natty in it. I am trying to connect to a Linksys WRT54G2 that is in G mode using WPA2 Personal with AES. Router info:

I have a desktop PC running Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7, and a Eee PC 701 laptop running EasyPeasy Ubuntu 9.04. I'd like to connect the desktop to the laptop with a wired connection (eth0), then the laptop to my ADSL router using wireless (ath0).
I have a crossover ethernet cable (I bought on ebay). I have set up my laptop with a static IP address on my LAN and it uses OpenDNS.
I have added this to /etc/sysctl.conf on the laptop:
This is a variation on what I found on other sites describing how to set up a router. I don't understand iptables very well, but I gather that the above two lines should set up forwarding so that traffic from my router to the laptop will be forwarded to the desktop, and vice versa.
But this doesn't work. The connection doesn't even establish between the laptop and the desktop.
just recently I made the move back to Ubuntu from Windows. Upon re-installing I noticed a problem with me connecting to the internet. Previously on Windows I had updated my Ethernet Adapter driver, upon installing I would have to disable and re-enable the device to let my computer have access to the internet. My problem here is how would I go about fixing this on Ubuntu so I can have internet access on Ubuntu
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 changed to a 4 port ethernet router (D-Link DSL-2542B Adsl2+)with intention to share Internet access with my brother (he's on Vista).Initially it all went well,but 3 days ago there were connection problems occured on the part of the ISP. Without realized the problem,I had reset the router.This morning I've been informed by the ISP that the connection has been re-established.So,I accessed the Internet via the 4 port router but failed to do so (server not found).Suspecting that the problem was from the 4 port router,I reverted to my old Adsl router (DSL-520B single port) and without any problem I managed to access the Internet back.I really need help to configure back the 4 port ethernet router to its initial state.
I have an Actiontec GT724WGR and I am having problems with my Ubuntu server. I set up a subdomain on freedns.afraid.org with my main computer's external ip. However whenever I use the link that was made it goes to my router configuration page instead of onto my server. I have already set up a static ip for my server enabled DMZ hosting and under port forwarding applied every single rule that applied to servers.
I have just installed ubuntu 10.04 using the wubi installer to dual-boot my machine. Under ubuntu, I am not able to connect to the internet or my router. Everything works fine under windows. I have tried to find relevant information in the forums, but nothing seems to work for me. I have tried disabling ipv6, setting a static ip, but no go. ifconfig shows no IP, dhclient results in no DHCP offers and pinging my router's IP results in Network is Unreachable.
I am not able to get wireless internet working on Ubuntu 10.04. I have a Wireless PCI card, Netgear WG311v2.I can't connect to the router, even though I downloaded the Windows drivers using Ndiswrapper.
For reasons that are not terribly interesting I decided it would be a great idea to remove and re-install the xserver-xorg package. Which proved to be a much larger mistake than I imagined it would be. I purged the package, and then restarted.Naturally I need to have an internet connection to use apt-get to reinstall xserver-xorg, which is where my idea falls apart.I followed the directions in the How To: Manual Network Configuration. However, after I enter the command "sudo dhclient wlan1" I get the line "wmaster0: unknown hardware address type 801" twice prior to the output that the above link shows. Then I just get DHCPDISCOVER messages until I get a "No DHCPOFFERS received. No working leases in persistent database - sleeping."
I'm connecting with WEP to a router that I know works (because I'm using it to type this on my laptop right now) and I know that the wireless adapter(RTL8187) is installed properly because it automatically connected to my network when I had xserver-xorg still installed.I'm running ubuntu 9.04.I've searched for a few hours and I'm no closer to resolving the issue.
I finally got the driver to be installed and to be associated with the network adapter. Now the issue is the wireless network adapter won't connect to my wireless network. I am new to Linux, and am trying to get my Fedora 14 to work online, without needing to constantly be wired in (what's the point of having a laptop if you have to be stationary). Anyways my network has WPA2 personal security with a TKIP + AES encryption (I switched it from solely AES because I thought that might have been the issue).I've heard a lot of good things about Linux, but so far its been frustrating trying to get this wireless connection working. I am currently taking a course on Linux, and I am using the opportunity to learn about and maybe switch over to a Linux OS which I have heard so much good stuff about in my previous courses.
I've recently installed Lucid Lynx 10.04 on my Dell Studio which uses an internal BCM4315 wi-fi card to connect to the internet. I was hoping it would work upon the install, but deep down I knew I'd have to tweak it a little bit to get it up and running the way I wanted. The card was instantly recognized but, at first, wasn't detecting wireless networks. This was quickly and painlessly fixed using System > Administration > Hardware Drivers, which I used to install Broadcom B43 wireless driver (b43-fwcutter). I rebooted and could not detect the local wireless networks.
I entered my password to my home network (correctly, I quadruple checked) but, unfortunately, it continuously tries to connect to the network with no successful. Occasionally I'm prompted to re-entered the password and the process repeats. The network I'm trying to connect to is a WPA/WPA2 network which I've heard to be troublesome. I haven't yet tried connecting to a WEP network but I'm fairly certain it will work and I will get back to this post when I test it in a few hours.
I'm curious if this question has been answered or if the problem has been solved and I just simply don't have the google skills to find it.
I'm having some issues getting connected with a TP-Link TL-Wn727N wireless USB adapter. I have no way to connect hard wired with the computer, but I have another working notebook to possibly download files. However, the second notebook is a Mac, so most of the posts I've found are not filling in all of the answers. Also forgot to note, I am using Ubuntu 10.10. I followed along with this and managed to get the card to find the wireless connection. However, the connection would never connect. After entering the security password the wireless icon would do it's thing and then pop up asking to ok the password again. I double, triple checked the password and it is correct. I found elsewhere that I should probably install wicd. This is where I've run into problems with finding the way to get files that I can download on the Mac and then installed on the Ubuntu computer. I managed to find this forum thread and downloaded this file I transferred the file from the Mac to the Ubuntu with a flash drive and tried to install. First the install said that Network Manager needed to be removed, so I removed it. Next it says "Dependency is not satisfiable: python-urwid." I'm not sure how to go about getting this dependency as it is not showing up in the package manager.
Linux and I have trying to get my Fedora 15 (x86 64bit) on my laptop to print to an Epson Stylus NX515 printer/scanner. I have the printer connected to a router through a wireless connection. I have other computers that are on the network that are Windows based and they of course are printing/Scanning just fine. The printer is located in a different room. I have been searching for a solution but non that explains how to install a printer driver for one that is connected to a router wirelessly.
I am running openSUSE 11.2 and just recently my network has been down. I'm using Gnome, but using Yast to configure my network (I'm usually forced to use wireless as I travel a lot on my laptop). Usually, when I'm connected to a wireless network, it will show up as so in the Gnome start menu, but recently, it will only say Wired there, even though I have nothing connected to my ethernet jack. I can connect wirelessly to a home router, but cannot use the wireless in any other way. I have tried manually disabling the ethernet connection to no avail. Unfortunately I am limited in my linux knowledge, so I am kinda stuck here.
After spending several months coming up with ideas (and ultimately failing), I have found the easiest and simplest way to connect your Ubuntu desktop (or laptop w/o a wireless adapter/card) to the Internet using only a Linksys Wireless Range Expander and an Ethernet cord.
YOU WILL NEED: Linksys Wireless Range Expander (WRE54G) Ethernet cable
Linksys wireless router (that is providing your home/office with wireless Internet) The WRE54G can be purchased online through various websites, including eBay. They run anywhere between $10 and $40, but it's going to be cheaper than a USB Wireless Adapter (and no software needs to be installed, making it universal for most Linux distros).
I'm having trouble getting my Ubuntu 10.04 machine (Sony Vaio VGN-SR490) to connect to the Internet by way of an Ethernet cable connected directly to my router.
I'm able to connect to the Internet using this same cable using a Windows machine, so there's something wrong with the way Linux is configured.
How do I got about figuring out what the problem is and solving it?
Here are my network settings on Linux:
$ ifconfig lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
It looks like the network adapters list is empty. I will now install both Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux dual-boot. I'm still not able to access the internet, even through Windows. I'm wonder if this could be a hardware problem with the computer or a problem with the router itself. Other computers can connect to this same router, and work fine. (That's how I'm posting this after all!)
After years of neglecting to get into Linux (for no real reason other than being lazy and decently content with Windows), I've not been shoved head first into the Linux world due to a Linux class I am taking. I've only been in the class for two weeks, so sorry about my lack of Linux knowledge! Anyway, I've downloaded and installed Ubuntu (using wubi, off of Windows 7 on a Sony Vaio VPCF1) and I'm having a few problems.
The main problem is that I can't connect wirelessly to the internet. Using ethernet works great, but I need to be able to take my laptop to class so I need to figure out how to get this working. The only thing I've tried was to check System> Admin> Hardware (or something along those lines?) to see that it said I have no peripherals connected. I don't even know if that is the right place to start, again.. The next problem is that the mouse-pad does not work. This is not a huge problem as I have a wireless USB one that works great, but still something I'd love to learn how to fix, if only for the knowledge of how to.
After that... is it possible to change resolution in Linux? I assume yes, how? And final question! Is this all something to do with wubi? Would it be better to do a dual boot with Windows 7, or would that even make much of a difference?
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on several desktops but they are not close to my router. I would like to use a wireless connection to go from my router to my Ubuntu laptop, then a wired connection from my laptop to a desktop. My laptop is WiFi enabled and has an ethernet connection.
I just installed ubuntu 9.10 netbook remix (karmic koala) on my eeepc so im pretty new to linux but getting the hang of it. i was running windows before and the wireless and wired connections were perfectly fine. when i installed ubuntu, i chose it as my main system and wiped windows. now i cannot connect to the internet through the ethernet cable or wirelessly. even though i put in the right ip adress etc it doesnt work. the wireless doesnt even pick anything up so i uninstalled network manager. i installed wicd network manager and that doesnt pick anything either. BTW using a Ralink RT2860 network card.
I am basically wanting to use my Ubuntu 10.10 computer as a router. Note: Before you say just get a router please note that I am poor/cheap. I have two ethernet connections and one wireless connection on my netbook. I want to share the internet connection that is going into one of the ethernet cards through the other ethernet card and the wireless card.
DSL-->1sr Eth --> 2nd Eth (currently works) DSL-->1sr Eth --> Wireless Card (Adhoc) <--(connects with limited connectivity AKA no internet)
The 2nd Ethernet card already has working internet, but when I connect to the Wireless card (through an Adhoc network), it cannot get an IP (I believe).
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 and its great. However when I connect to the internet at home it shows that the connection has been established but I still cant connect to the internet. My flatmates are all able to connect. However, I am able to connect from work both wirelessly and through an ethernet cable.
