I'm trying to use my bluetooth connection on Opensuse 11.4 to share its internet access with my Windows 7 laptop.I've been able to link them together(send receive files) but cannot create an Adhoc network or share internet with the link.What should I try? Could someone point me into the right direction?I looked at one promising tread that looked as if it would work but cant find hcid.conf(did a complete file search and think it may have been changed in bluez).
I have been looking for a solution to an apparently simple problem, but could not find anything for Lucid. All solution I found imply modifying files that apparently don't exist anymore (/etc/default/bluetooth, /etc/bluetooth/hid.conf, ...)I have an old laptop running Xubuntu (lucid). Internet card is dead but it has a bluetooth adapter in the USB port. I also have another laptop with internet, wireless, and bluetooth on board. How can I configure both so that the first access the internet trough the second?
- Internet works on the second (of course!)
- Bluetooth work on both, I can pair them and send file from one to the other (although I cannot browse them, but it seems to be an unrelated problem)
- I have blueman on both and tried to configure it to do what I want but it did not work (old computer has a bnep0 interface, but no address for it)
- Old laptop sees "Network access point" and "group network" as bluetooth services of new laptop (although I did uncheck "group network" in the local services setting on new laptop)
- as I said I looked on the web but only found solutions that appear to be designed for older versions of Ubuntu because they refer to non existing files on my two laptops.
Has anyone ever shared a network connection with another computer using Ubuntu/Linux? I have got a connection to the Local Area Network of my organization, but the problem is, it is only one. I have a laptop and I requested a connection for it, too. But the request was denied and one of the techs at IT department tipped me that I could create my own PAN on which my computer (which is a client on the organization LAN) would act as a server for my PAN and my laptop can access Internet if you choose to share your Internet access over the PAN...
I have no idea about networking and stuff. And that fella was too busy to lemme know how to set up this whole thing. Besides, he is a Microsoft Expert, probably never touched Linux. The situation gets worse... I don't wanna spend money on a Wi-Fi router. Instead, I could use the built-in Bluetooth module on my laptop with another Bluetooth Blip which is connected to my computer on USB port. I know people do that fairly commonly over Windows, since I have googled and found many posts regarding sharing an Internet connection through a Bluetooth connection with another computer.
A fairly old computer Intel Pentium IV 3.0GHz 1GB RAM 80GB HDD External Bluetooth Device (Not sure about Specs) Linux Ubuntu Lucid Linx (10.04) Connected to Internet through a proxy server I want to make this one my server for PAN
A relatively modern laptop HP HDX-16t Intel Core2Duo 2.2GHz 2GB RAM 320GB HDD Built-In HP Integrated Bluetooth Module Windows Vista 64-bit Home Edition No connection to Internet I want to make it able to connect to Internet through PAN
I'm trying to set up a wireless AP with Internet sharing. I currently have the AP setup with hostapd and a dhcp server. The clients can connect but there is not Internet sharing. Now my situation is somewhat uniqe in that my internet connection is my teathered android cell phone. The tether app is azilink and i use openvpn to create a virtual networking interface(tun0).
I just want to use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to connect to the internet. I have done a massive amount of troubleshooting, but some of it seems to contradict itself, and the only two things that I know for sure are that it used to work, and that my Ethernet cable is not the problem. When I use Terminal utilities like ifup and dhclient it seems that it can not determine IP information, but when I try to put it in manually, the "Apply" button grays out right after I finish typing it in. When I try to connect normally, in KDE or GNOME, the icon acts like it's connecting, then instead of having the connected icon, I receive a notification that "the network has been disconnected", and it goes back to the disconnected icon.
Oh, and by the way, I know that I could probably find a workaround, but I have limited resources, and this used to work. The Linux is a Dell desktop with Fedora 12 and the Windows is a Windows 7 HP laptop.EDIT: I hope that I didn't mess something up, but I accidentally used system-network-config to try putting in the IP address there, and ended up changing it back to the original settings, but the computer is now calling it Auto Ethernet in the taskbar icon, although sudo iwconfig in the terminal still calls it eth0.
for the last one week i'm facing problem in sharing internet between xp and fedora. I'm connected to internet through wireless adapter in xp and wants to share internet through crossover cable between xp and fedora. I did the following steps.
1: start a network setup wizard in xp. 2: change the smb.conf file in fedora and change the workgroup name to same as in xp. 3:in Xp the ethernet adapter has address 192.168.0.1/24. 4: when i connect the crossover cable and start fedora. it couldn't get the ip address through dhcp. 5: when i tried giving the ip address manually "192.168.0.2/24 with gateway 192.168.0.1"and save the subnet mask is replaced by 192.168.0.1 don't know why it not saved.
i tried changing new ethernet card but not worked. some time avc denials message "SELinux is preventing consoletype (consoletype_t) "read" to /var/lib/dhclient/dhclient-eth0.leases (dhcpc_state_t)." comes. can any one tell me how to enable or make a network in fedora . i 'm very new in linux and couldn't able to share network .
I have little question, how can i share internet in Ubuntu? In this case to Win 7? I have tried Firestarter, but that doesnt work... And please I do not have a router I just need simple connection from my desktop to my laptop, and I dont want another box collecting dust.
I have a samsung messager touch R631 with 3G capability and I am trying to connect my laptop to the internet through it via bluetooth. Everything worked when I had the MAC OSx on my laptop, and after I switched to ubuntu 10.04LTS (32 bit) I cannot get it to work again. I did some searching and checked a few things out, but Everything I've tried with the BlueZ isn't working. It shows I'm connected, but it just doesn't work...is there any way to get it to work or another program or something I need? these are the 2 pages I refferenced...[url] [url]
I have a laptop running Windows XP with a secure wireless internet connection. I want to share this connection to my desktop running Ubuntu 9.10 via an direct ethernet cable connection. So far in Windows I checked the "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" in the Wireless Network Connection Properties menu. Doing this creates a new IP Configuration. Here is an output of running the ipconfig command: Windows IP Configuration
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and trying to use Internet Connection Sharing through my Dell Mini 9 laptop.
The incoming internet is from wireless The outgoing internet is from Ethernet I am using a crossover cable as I have heard this is necessary I followed the 9.10 method on my Auto Eth 0 connection Here is a link to the Ubuntu Documentation I used The computer I am trying to share to does not pick up the internet being shared from the cable.
I have an Ethernet hub, and want two computers (both notebooks) to share my internet connection. One is running Ubuntu 9.10 and the other is running Windows Vista. I want both computers to be able to connect to the internet (I use a cable modem).
However, when I plug both computers in, I am able to get only one of them working at one time. When Ubuntu works with the internet, Windows does not work (although it sees the internet connection). When Windows works, Ubuntu sees the connection, but cannot connect.
I'm trying to share an internet connection between two computers. The one currently online is a HP Presario running Ubuntu 9.10, and connects through a wireless connection. It has an ethernet port, which I'm hoping to use to connect to a Dell Desktop running Windows XP pro SP 3. I'm hoping to make this happen one of two ways.
1. Without having to mess with any DHCP settings. Sadly, I live with my parents, and the router in their room uses DHCP and sets the addresses for all the computers on the network. My parents don't want me screwing with any of the settings on the router. is there a way to just have Ubuntu pass information from the ethernet connection to the wireless connection without having to deal with DHCP.
2. I'm sure this has been explained, but as I'm new to Ubuntu, I will pretty much need step by step instructions to do this part. Sorry to be difficult. Is there a way to have Ubuntu keep the current settings it has on the wireless side (let the router determine it's address and all of that good stuff), but have a DHCP server kick in on the hard-wired side so Internet Connection Sharing has an address to look for on the laptop?
I want to use the wifi card in my laptop to share my internet connection to my Android Phone.Android phones don't support Ad-hoc networks yet (maybe not ever) so I need to the shared network in Infrastructure mode not ad-hoc mode.Using Ubuntu 10.04, If I click on the NetworkManager Applet ( 0.8 ) and select Create new wireless network, it will create an ad-hoc network, I then tried changing this to infrastructure, but it didn't work.Is there some way of modifying this created network to make it appear as infrastructure, or alternatively create a shared internet connection in infrastructure mode?
Just took the plunge and removed Windows 7 from my desktop rig and I am currently using Ubuntu 10.04
I was using this PC to share my Internet (DSL) connection to any and all other PC's on my network, wired and wireless, and I am attempting to set this up in Ubuntu.
My desktop, other wired PC's, a wireless AP and my DSL modem are all connected to a 8 port Ethernet switch and I was using ICS in Windows 7 to share my Internet connection once I established the connection from my desktop.
Can this be done in Ubuntu? As soon as I make the DSL connection it says that Auto eth0 disconnects (which I set to share to all in IPv4 settings which I read on the forum is the way to share)... thus nothing is currently shared :/
In this document it states that the sharing computer needs two network interfaces... but in Windows I only used the one...
The place I will be staying at (Japanese Guesthouse) only offers internet through cable. What I'd like to do is be able to connect my other devices through wifi (Cellphone for example) to the Ubuntu machine connected through this ethernet cable in order to access the internet.I've searched for a good hour but I'm getting extremely confused about the gateways, bridges or whatever else people suggest. Most of what I've been able to find actually only covers getting internet through wifi and then sharing it through lan (I'm trying to achieve the opposite).
So if anyone could point me in the right direction, or at least tell me what terms I should be using for my searches, it would greatly help.Some computer info might be useful. I'm using a Dell XPS M1210, the network adapter is an Intel Pro Wireless 3945ABG and I'm running Ubuntu Desktop Edition 10.10.
I have a desktop PC and a laptop, both running Ubuntu lucid, the laptop has XFCE and the PC has GNOME, but that's actually not relevant.My PC is connected to.I can't access the internet from my laptop, but whenever I connect the two machines with a network cable, my PC sees the connection at eth0 (even announces connection and disconnection), but my laptop does not.I have no idea what's going on, could this be a faulty cable or a faulty network card at my laptop? Or I simply screwed up the connection setup?
i have 2 laptops which is one installing windows 7 and the other one is ubuntu 10.04. i have internet on windows 7 and want to share to linux ubuntu 10.04 through wireless connection. How to setting that?
In windows, when I use an HSPDA modem, internet traffic will be automatically directed through it. Everything will go back to normal once broadband connection is disconnected. In fedora 12 this is not the case, internet traffic will still go through the lan interface. Is there a way to mimic windows behavior in linux?
A friend of mine is trying to setup internet connection sharing in Ubuntu, which is something I've never dealt with before. Here's the situation:One desktop PC is dual-booting Ubuntu and Vista. This box is connected wirelessly to the router and can access the internet just fine. The desired setup is to have an xbox360 connected (wired) to the desktop PC, allowing it to share the internet connection.
1) A crossover cable would need to be used between the desktop PC and the xbox. 2) The xbox would still have the router's internal IP as the default gateway (I have zero experience configuring networking on an xbox... I hope these options are easily available). 3) The internal IPs can all be on the same network (i.e. router = 192.168.1.1 ; desktop = 192.168.1.100 ; xbox = 192.168.1.101) 4) IP forwarding would need to be enabled on the Ubuntu host
Is there anything I'm overlooking or just oversimplifying, or should that just about do it?
I have an ubuntu 7.10 ICS server that works fine and I have routed my traffic using firestarter to my windows PC. my server's IP is 192.168.0.1 and my windows client is 192.168.0.2. now, I have bought another PC and I want to assign 192.168.0.3 to it and connect it to ubuntu server. in windows, all I needed to do was to connect the first client to first network card, second one to second network card, bridge two connections in my server, assign 192.168.0.1 to the network bridge in my server and 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.0.3 to my clients, then share my internet connection. I also could access shared files in any computer from all of them. can I have the same functionality with a linux server?
I'll make a list to make it easy if you don't wanna read the whole post:
things I want:
1. assign one ip address to multiple interfaces in linux, making them bonded.
2. sharing the internet connection with both clients.
3. ability to use all shared files over a network.
I am using ubuntu on a vm with 2 network eth0 ( internet, getting the ip by dhcp on modem adsl) and eth1 (10.1.1.1). In other vm an windows machine with 10.1.1.2 / 255.255.255.0 / 10.1.1.1 /10.1.1.1). I can ping to linux and windows with no problem. Then to share I used
How to connect to my Mobile Phone which have GPRS. I want to connect Via BLUETOOTH. Becoz I dont have any Data Cables.Plz give me the instructions to connect to my Phone via Bluetooth to access Internet.
I've just loaded up Fedora 13 and I like the new feature Fedora have which allows you to use your mobile as a internet modem over bluetooth. Is it possible to update my Network Manager in ubuntu 10.04 to this new version 0.8.997 through the package manager? Is there a PPA or something I could use?
Would just updating this add the bluetooth ability or would I have to update gnome-bluetooth package as well? Is it doable at all or should I just wait till the next Ubuntu comes out?
I've a Nokia 2323 Classic which I want to use to access to the internet on my laptop.
A friend of mine with a Dell Inspiron 15 running Windows 7 could connect to the net by just pairing up and right clicking on my phone's icon in the devices menu and selecting connect to internet via access point.
I've an eMachines E725 which lacks bluetooth. To overcome this I used a dongle which was able to successfully pair up with my phone via the bluetooth menu in preferences.
So what next ? How do I use the phone to connect to the internet directly via access point ?
I noticed that I did not need any operator related settings to do so in windows 7 and the phone worked regardless of SIM card present so I assume it should work similarly in linux.
What is left is to ask the system to treat it as an internet access device and use it that way.
How do I do it ? I don't mind a commandline way but a GUI would be better because I'm not the only person using my laptop.
