the only error message I can find comes from "dmesg|tail"all it shows is "no IPv6 router"any body know what is going on here or where where to look for more clues the next time I get around public wifi Oh the windoze washers and apple polishers don't seem to have any problems at all
I've been using Ubuntu 10.10 for 2 days and there's one problem left to solve. It cannot connect to my home encrypted wifi but it has no problem connecting to open wifi. I used this site [URL] to change my wifipassword but it still doesn't work. Interestingly my Windows partition connects to it without any change so I don't even know if I'm really changing the password. The router is a Linksys WRT54G2. How can I change the wifi password, know what it is, and make sure Ubuntu knows how to connect to it?
I updated a firmware of my wifi router (small black box with antenna). The router is managed via web browser at address 192.168.1.100. I opened Mozilla Firefox connected to the router, but a 'home.asp' application - an interface one can to set up a configuration - running on the router didn't work properly. When I tried to change some settings, and eg. clicked a confirmation button nothing happened. I solved the problem staring Windows and making a connection using IE - this time that home.asp application did OK. The question is what may caused problems? A bug in this app or in general *.asp applications don't communicate well with browsers other than IE or simply they don't 'like' Linux?
I'm new to Linux and Ubuntu 9.10. I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 on an older Compaq Presario 6100. Initially my built in wireless was not working. I searched the forum and was able to get my wireless working (I think) by installing the BCM43XX driver. I assume that works on my computer since I believe the BCM4306 driver is needed. Anyway, assuming my wireless is working, my home network does not show up in the pick list when I go to network<wireless.
I've spent a couple of hours already researching this and up someone can help me out. I would really like to give this new system a try.
I acquired an old Compaq Evo laptop and installed Kubuntu on it. Bought a second hand wifi card, a DEXLAN IEEE802.11b (Having Googled to check it would work with Linux).
It detects wireless networks fine, and is able to connect to open ones, but I can't log into the home network with the password which works fine for Windows laptops.
I've tried every configuration of the router I can find, and followed the advice at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...untu#EasySteps but with no luck. It just asks for the password over and over again without connecting.
I have a problem: when I log in with my account NetworkManager doesn't connect to my home WiFi connection, cause it wait for authorization. No change if I try to retype the connection password, it still wait for authorization!
I got my netbook in the mail yesterday, opened it up, logged in, and Windows 7 was installed. Being a Windows hater my whole life, I followed a friend's advice and downloaded Ubuntu netbook, made a USB drive, changed the BIOS settings, all that. Here's when the stupidity occurs--I decided to go ahead and install Ubuntu without trying it, and to delete Windows to do so. A couple minutes later I realized that was a really, really stupid idea, so in a panic I turned my netbook off. I turned it back on and it was still on install but not really moving, so I powered off and on again and went back to the "Try Ubuntu" or "Install Ubuntu" choice screen. I chose "Try Ubuntu" and found that it did not recognize my home wifi network or ask me to join--or any wifi network, for that matter.
Now, it did recognize my wifi network the few minutes I spent on Windows 7, so I tried to change the BIOS settings back to where I could just use that until I figured out the problem. But no matter which setting I tried (HDD/SDD just gives me a black screen, and FDD and LAN do the same as the USB drive), I can't get back to Windows, so I guess I did delete it. Which leaves me with a netbook that can only connect to the internet via ethernet cable. Which kind of defeats the purpose.
Questions I should answer:
1. How am I trying to get online? My home's wireless network. We have a router. All the other laptops in the house connect fine.
2. Who is my internet service provider (and in which country?) COX, United States.
3. Can you get online with any other method? Yes, the internet works fine with an ethernet cable.
4. How am I getting online to post in this forum? My parent's laptop.
5. What hardware are you using? Toshiba N505 netbook and a router. I can give more information about the router if you need it, but I doubt it's the program since the other laptops are fine.
Give me one moment and I will add some code that it gives me when I put in the commands this website tells me to.My two final questions are:
1. Is there any way to recover Windows without buying it again?
2. How can I get Ubuntu to connect to my home wifi network?
EDIT: Here's some code. I have no idea what it means, but hopefully you do.
To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo <command>".See "man sudo_root" for details.
I have a Dell Mini 10v with a fresh install of latest Ubuntu Netbook Edition. I have enabled proprietary drivers in order to get the WiFi card to work and managed to connect at home, starbucks etc. Good stuff.
For some reason I can detect but not connect to the WiFi at work - I get prompted for the pword and after entering it the WiFi indicater will pulse for a while only to return to the pword prompt. yes, I have the right pword and can connect my iPhone and other laptops. I am really puzzled by this and really need to get on the WiFi at work - wired connection works.
my colleague has the same dell model with windows 7 installed and is able to connect fine - I really don't want that @@@@ installed just to get WiFi. I know password entry error is the obvious solution but I connect new windows devices to it routinely and had other people try too.
I know Windows forward and backward but I am so new to linux it's just wrong. I just installed fedora (like 1hr ago) on and old toshiba laptop with a WiFi PC card. Everything seems to work fine except. My Networks connects to my home Wifi network but it will not connect to internet. When it connects the IP address isn't even close to being in the same range as my other laptops and PCs. Like I said I'm new to linux but I'm wanting to learn. Any fixes for this issue? Which linus book is the best one to read for a beginner? Other then not connecting to internet I have no complaints.
I recently got a lenovo w510 laptop and I installed openSUSE 11.3 KDE on it. the wireless works fine at home (802.11g WPA2) when I go to work I have tried to set up the wifi for the 802.1X PEAP network but it doesn't look like it even tries to connect.
The work network set up is as follows. non-brodcasting SSID (do I need to tell network manager of this? I manually enter the SSID no problem)
Dynamic WEP 802.1X PEAP blank anonymous identity no CA cert (I suspect this might be the problem) PEAP v 1 MSCHAPv2
I have verified my username and pw several times, as well as the SSID. Just yesterday I helped a co-worker get on the network under ubuntu and it worked like a charm.
The Hardware profile displays the wifi card as a "WiFi Link 6000 Series" It is an intel card.
I was wondering if there's any way for a laptop to be both simultaneously connected to a wireless network, while at the same time acting as an ad-hoc network with local access to serve as a wifi connection for my mobile device, which would be ssh-ing into the laptop and using local resources.
How is shell history specific to each tty? I can't see anything in the history files that would indicate which tty a command was performed on, however if I restart and log in on several ttys, the command order and history is preserved on each. How is this accomplished? This goes for zsh and bash equally.Now for some zsh specific questions.I had a saved webpae, which resulted in a file called doku.php.htm, and a directory called doku.php_files - I could only get zsh to expand the directory. It didnt seem to give me the option to cycle nor did it only complete as much as it could with ambiguity, i.e. to doku.php , so what is this behaviour and where can I read about it?
Secondly I would like to know why zsh interactive shells do not expand the PS1 prompt completely. Whenever I open an xterm or such, the prompt is not the normal PS1 prompt. I read through the manuals and config files, and could see nowhere that staed a different prompt should be used depending on the shell type. Why does this happen, and how can I modify this behavior?Regarding modules, if I install the compat-wifi modules which I assume replace the existing ones, how would I uninstall them? Would I just reinstall the normal kernel modules over them?
In my organization, we have a centralized home directory for all users which gets mounted from all the machine where user logs in.Since any XYZ user can login to any of hundreds test machines and run 'sudo su - myusername', hence taking control of my home dir.How do I track who took control of my home dir and deleted its contents.
If someone has done something wrong on a shared linux machine. If i want to find out who is that person or ip from where it is been done what are all the possible ways. 1 possibility I thought was to get the PID of the command and get other details from that PID?
Possible Duplicate: Can history files be unified in bash? I have bash running in an ssh session, call this session A. I leave the office, go home, ssh to the same box, call this session B. From session B, I'd like to be able to look at the history of session A.
How can I get/filter history entries in a specific range?I have a large history file and frequently usehistory | grep somecommandNow, my memory is pretty bad and I also want to see what else I did around the time I entered the command.For now I do this:get match, say 4992 somecommand, then I do history | grep 49[0-9][0-9]this is usually good enough, but I would much rather do it more precisely, that is see commands from 4972 to 5012, that is 20 commands before and 20 after. I am wondering if there is an easier way? I suspect, a custom script is in order, but perhaps someone else has done something similar before.
i am working with linux security auditing project on my Servers.I want to find out all the commands executed by individual users.i think using last command,find out the login details.But how can find out the commands executed by each users on all logins except "history".?
I have a secondary disk which holds a /home directory structure from a previous install of Linux. I installed a new version on a new primary drive and mounted this secondary drive as the new /home. Problem is, even though the users are the same names and I can access the home directories for the users, I cannot login directly to their home directories, as I get the following error: -
login as: [me] [me]@[machine]'s password: Last login: Wed Jan 6 18:34:33 2010 from [machine] Could not chdir to home directory /home/[me]: Permission denied [[me]@[machine] /]$
Now, since the usernames are correct and the users are in the passwd file with the correct home directory paths, could it be user ID's that are different or something else? It's not as though I cannot access the home directories for the users, simply that I cannot log directly into them from a login prompt.
Is there anything special about a home directory before users' home directories are stored there, or is just as typical as any other "empty" folder?Let me just cut to the chase, but please no ear ringing about the folly of messing around as root, particularly with directories at root level. I know it's considered stupidity, but I deleted my home directory.
Is there an easy way to restore a working home directory? I tried copying /etc/skel under root, but I'm not sure what a home directory should look like once it has been restored. Besides . & .., there were .screenrc & .xsession in my home directory when I copied /etc/skel. Are these files suppose to be in "/home" or "/home/~" or both?
