Networking :: Cannot Connect To Internet With AT&T 2WIRE Wireless Router
Oct 4, 2010
AT&T will not help. I am trying to connect with Cable (CAT5). When I try to configure my network card with YaST here is the message received. "Unable to configure the network card becasue the kernal device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly cause by missing firmware (for wlan device) See dmesg output for details"
I connect my internet using pppoe to may DSL modem with bridging mode, and it goes fine until I try to put a wireless router between my PC and the modem. After I configure both modem and the router, I can run my wireless network fine by connecting it from a laptop, but my PC is unable to reach the modem at this configuration.
PC has address 192.168.2.100 Router has address 192.168.2.2 Modem has address 192.168.2.1 all with netmask 255.255.255.0
With bridging configuration in modem and automatic detect configuration in the wireless router, the wireless network run well, except the PC cannot ping the Modem saying that
root@firefly:~# ping 192.168.2.1 PING 192.168.2.1 (192.168.2.1) 56(84) bytes of data. From 192.168.2.100 icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
Looks like my PC, which has Slackware 13.0, don't know how to reach the modem even they are physically connected.
1. how can I configure the modem, PC, and router so that the PC can reach the router? Do I need to do add route gateway from the PC?
2. How can I configure internet connection from the PC (before I use PPPoE)?
3. How can I configure the modem, PC, and router so that the wireless network is on?
At work, we (like almost everyone) are still full-on windows. I am currently trying to get away from windows because I am not a fan. my current windows machine (different from my Ubuntu machine) is accessing the wireless network fine, and there are no obvious problems there. Also, my Ubuntu machine can access my wireless network at home, so I know there are no driver issues. I set up the connection for the Ubuntu machine, and it seems to be connecting OK. I can ping internal IPs and by all statuses, the connection to the router is functioning. However, when I attempt to load a web page or ping a domain or external IP, it fails. I tried to ping the IP, thinking if that worked, it's probably the DNS, but pinging both domains or IPs fails. I have looked around at forums and posts, but none of them seem to match my issue (that's probably not true, but I am struggling to see the commonality).
Here are the results of "netstat -r":

And here is "ifconfig":

I think something weird is going on. On a fresh installation of 11.04, I seem to be connected to my router just fine, but I can't reach the internet or anywhere else on my network. Anybody see my problem from what I've posted? The computer is only connected via wireless (so I don't know why eth0 would be connected as well). I can't think of what I'm missing...My system seems to be connected to my router on two interfaces. "ip addr" gives:
Code: 1: lo <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 16436 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
I have just installed Linux Mint 8 to an Asus A6000. My problem is that the computer won't connect with my wireless router. I have tried with MAC-adress and such, but still no respons. I also tried to connect with a cable to my modem, but no response there either.
I think I may lack some drivers, to what I think is Broadcom b43, but I am not sure. I tried to download the drivers on my other computer, and transfered them to the Asus. I managed to install 2/4 drivers, but on the two others, I get this message "Failed to fetch ... Couldn't reach archive.ubuntu.com"
I have a telephone connection of 1 mega internet modem huawei mt 880 SmartAX my desktop computer is connected via an ADSL PPPoE.I use Ubuntu 10.04 in Spanish and want to know how to connect a WiFi router TP-LINK TL- wr942nd to provide wireless Internet to other 2 PC, a desktop with a plaquet wireles G CNet CWP-854 and 500 series notebook olivetti olibook. The issue is that when I connect the router I can not even go online and do not know how to operate the network, I can not even connect the desktop to my internet provider
My son lost his USB Wireless stick for his Computer. I had thought I heard that if you had a second wireless router, you could use it somehow to detect the wireless router you have already set up in your home (like using a wireless card)? Is this what Ad-Hoc is? Either way, can this be done and if so how? I use a WRT54Gx2 Lynksys router and have a TRENDNET TEW-432BRP wireless router and also a spare D-link DI-514. I use ubuntu 10.04, and also wanted to know if I connected one of the router to his on the LAn port could he connect msaybe through an Ad-Hoc on my local computer here? He uses XP on his. I'm a newbie to linux and networking in general.
One day I lost my WiFi connection while doing nothing particularly interesting. OK then...I investigate, and I find that it only connects occasionally, and when it does, even then it will render a page almost none of the time. I can't even ping anything. I tried going to the router's config page (192.168.1.254 for this one) and found that even that won't load. I power cycled the router, and it did nothing. I thought that the router was dying, but I realized when I switched to Windows 7 (this is a dual boot machine) it works fine. Also, when I went back to Ubuntu and tried connecting to a neighbor down the block's WiFi, it also works fine (this is what I'm using to post this message.) I did all I could to fix this, even to the point of dismantling the machine and moving cards around and such, but it did nothing. I finally formatted my Ubuntu partition and reinstalled, and it also did nothing. It also doesn't work from the Live CD. The router works fine on all the other computers in the house, wired or wireless, and also my phone and PSP's.
While connected, in Firefox, sites sit at "looking up", "waiting for", or "connecting to". It seems to be at random which one. They all time out, none of them say server not found. I thought it was a DNS problem, so I tried some DNS's I know (Google's, OpenDNS, DNS Advantage etc.) but it did bupkis.One thing I notice is that while connected, I have a fantastic signal strength of about 85%, when before any of this happened, it was more around 70%. I didn't move the antenna anywhere or anything having to do with the reception. Also, once connected, it stays connected, it's just getting it initialized that's the problem, but even while connected it doesn't seem to work well.
This is incredibly frustrating, as I did not change anything with the router at all, in any way shape or form. It just spontaneously decided to not like Linux. The router's model is 2700HG-B.Could it be that my wireless card is dying? I've had the thing for 6 years, and had no sign of it failing. I'm thinking that can't be it because it works with the same computer and network, but with a different OS. Could there be something wrong with the Ubuntu driver for my card, ath5k? I was going to say there's something up with wpa supplicant, because I use WPA-PSK for authentication, but I turned that off from another computer and it still does not work.
Again, the problem is that Ubuntu works with every router I can connect to EXCEPT mine, and Windows 7 on the same machine works with the same router. My router works with every other device in the house. I have changed nothing networking related, and even reinstalling Ubuntu did nothing. I would try it with Ubuntu on another machine, but my machine is the only wireless one in the house (and I can't put Ubuntu on the wired ones, that would PO some people),and I would try it with a different wireless card/USB thingy, but I don't have another one.
EDIT: I got some other Live CDs out, I tried Kubuntu 10.04, and Ubuntu 9.10. NEITHER WORK!
I just installed 11.04 on my laptop and the wireless works fine connecting to a AT&T 2Wire router when the ac power adapter is connected. When running on battery power I stay connected to the router but barely any information is transmitted. ie. if i restart the router connection on my computer I can load a web page like google.com then nothing else will work unless I restart the connection again. If I am right next to the router it will continue to work but very slow ( takes about a minute to load ......com when it only takes 2 seconds on ac power ). When I run windows 7 everything works fine when on battery power.Also every thing works fine on a linksys router with ac and battery power.Dell Inspiron 14R Processor: i5-2400MWireless Card: Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal
I am trying to setup a dhcp server for my internal network. I have two NICs, a modem, and a wireless router. I have my server connected directly to my modem which is providing me with Internet access on eth1 and is working fine. I have dhcp and dns setup on eth0 which is connected to my router. The router shows that it is connected to the Internet but when the router gives a client computer an IP address, the client is unable to connect to the Internet but can connect to the router. I will post my configuration files below with my current configuration.
I had an ATT "2Wire" modem/router that was working but connection to the Internet was often poor. An ATT technician came to my home and swapped out the modem/router for the identical model. I changed the ESSID and WEP code to match the new unit and everything was fine with the following wireless units: a wireless desktop, two cellphones, three wireless Archos tablets, and a couple of e-reader tablets. So all seemed to be fine wirelessly. However...
My laptop (SuSE 11.0, KDE3) simply won't connect no matter what I do. I changed the ESSID and WEP info in the lappy exactly as was done with the other wireless devices named above. But no good. The lappy does see the modem/router (a good, strong signal appears in KNetworkManager). But it seems as if the modem/router is rejecting the lappy's attempted handshake using the new ESSID and/or WEP information.
I thought that perhaps there was something wrong with the lappy's wireless card, so I took it to a Starbucks to see if it would connect there on an open network, and it did without problem. So the lappy's wireless card appears to be working fine. It just won't talk to the encrypted modem/router at home. Here are the settings on the lappy. Hopefully something here is easily identified as the culprit. With all the clicking I've done it certainly is possible that I ticked something that should not have been ticked and just don't realize what I've done.
Network settings screen: Global options tab: Network setup method: user controlled with Network Manager Change default route via DHCP (ticked)
Why won't the new modem/router which is exactly the same as the old one except for the ESSID and WEP work with my lappy yet it does work with a bunch of other wireless devices?
Those are my authentication capabilities, obviously. I am using a WEP encryption for my wireless router and according to this, it will not allow me to connect. Is there anyway to allow that? The wireless card works just fine in Windows, even on the same network encryption type. Using a Intel Wireless/Pro 4965 ag. Note* this is my mother's router and whatnot. She won't change it the encryption type.
I installed a Tenda W322P wireless card in my dual-boot PC running both Windows XP and Ubuntu 11.04. The card worked straight out of the box on XP, but does not function correctly under Ubuntu. My apologies for any missing/irrelevant information, I am having to post this from the Windows boot so the Ubuntu settings are not directly available at the same time as internet access.I followed the process detailed here htURL...to install and configure the driver (I believe from reading other sites that this card is the Ralink RT3062 chipset), blacklisted the original RT2860 driver that was in use (couldn't even get the card to scan for wireless networks with the default driver) and restarted the interface.
Since then, sudo iwlist scan can find my wireless router but when I attempt to connect to it, it seems to enter a loop of requesting the WEP key then pausing for a while before re-requesting the key. I know I have the key value correct because it is copied and pasted from the same text file I used to copy and paste into the passkey field on the Windows boot. Attempting to connect to the router using Ubuntu also has the rather unfortunate side-effect of crashing the wireless router, killing off all other device connections until the router has been reset.
make a wireless connection to an ATT 2wire router ESSID called "WIGGERS" that I do not control. My Dell D630 does connect successfully to other WPA broadcasts. I am running Natty (11.04) with the default Unity interface.iwconfig does see "WIGGERS", but the Network Connections application on the menu bar eventually times out and asks for the authentication code. When I put in the code, it still does not connect.I do successfully connect to "WIGGERS" using another laptop running Win XP so I know the code is correct. The Windows machine indicates that it is using:etwork authentication: WPA2-PSK Data encryption AESSomething that may be causing the problem is that the router is apparently putting out two signals (see iwlist output below). Both Cell 01 and Cell 02 have the same ESSID.Below I have pasted output from lspci, iwconfig, and iwlist:
I cannot connect to internet. I just installed Fedora 12 w/ the Live CD and I have a Linksys WMP54G Wireless Card (v4.1 I believe) and it apparently installed fine upon install of fedora. It will not thought connect to the internet. It reads my connect (NETGEAR-2.4-G), my router is a Netgear WNDR3300. It worked perfectly fine on Windows XP. Like I said, it picks up my wireless connection. But when I go to connect it attempts to connect for like a minute or two then goes back to not connected.
I'm a beginner in Ubuntu, I'm using Ubuntu 9.10. Currently using a Dlink GLB-802c router and using a ADSL connection. I try to connect to the Internet but it is unsuccessful. Ubuntu is not indicating my router when I connect to the PC.
My PC is P4 and using USB to connect to internet, PC haven't a Ethernet interface.
- CAN connect to other computers - ssh and vnc over the home network (via D-link 524 router). - CAN get an IP address via DHCP - CANNOT get internet connections - including router at 192.168.0.1 - CANNOT even ping router (but I get an IP address - weird) - Other computers on the network CAN access internet - Live CD could not access internet

I am wondering if his ISP could be doing this - he has received a warning letter about bitorrent. Could the isolate a single computer behind a NAT router?
This is the results from dmesg:
I have tried:
- to set proxy settings as "Direct internet connection" - disconnecting power to (including 30 sec wait): modem, router, computer + unplugging ethernet from computer - Live CD (he only had an old one 7.10) which also didn't connect to internet, but as I am remote, I couldn't do any more. We are downloading a 10.04.1 iso for him to burn tomorrow, and will try that again. - Uninstalled Crashplan which was the last software that we installed (and it was working ok).
I am currently ssh'ing into another computer on the network that IS working, and then ssh'ing into my Dad's computer - including a VNC session (tunneled through both machines and router).
i recently connected this router to mahh modem..http:[url]....before router connection i was able to connect to internet via "pppoeconf command" but now i am not able to connect to internet from ubuntu ..i am still using lan cable coming out or router to connect it with pc..
Useing gnome network manger. I thught that is DNS resolve problem, and wrote in linksys router the same DNS as 3g huaweii modem use. Steel the some result. NO INTERNET. Change for static ip in router and try use the same gatway , but steell can't use connected at the same time to internet with 3g and local router.
Only one devace at the same time, Router have no any acces to internat. SO why 3g internet stoping working after connecting router to LAN ports? Has it some thing to do with subnet or ip range and routing table?
After forgetting my wifi router password, I had to reset and reconfigure the router. I enabled WEP, and after I typed the password, the computer now recognises it automatically. But I can't connect to the internet no matter how long I wait. (The wired internet connection works fine.) How can I get the wifi to connect to the internet?
I have a question. I just bought an internet router which also has wireless connection and my notebook also has wireless LAN.I was able to connect the computer to the internet router very easy. But i dont know how to make it work wirelesss under fedora linux 12...i mean how should i setup the connection to the router so i will be able to have a wireless connection?
I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and am really happy. I want to sort the wireless conection out now. I have been through this forum for hours today and can't get it working. I have a Broadcom wireless card, which seems to be working fine, but I am not 100% convinced.I have attached the output of some of the commands that I have seen referred to on here.
I am using the wired connection on the same router, so the router connects fine.I click on the network icon and I see the skyNNNN router in the list. I have tried connecting to it and it asks me for my password, which I provide then nothing happens until it asks me again.I have removed the security from the router and I then see the same skyNNNN router without a lock icon. I try to connect and it still fails.I am not using an access list on the router, so there is no issue with the mac address.
I have been using pppoe connect to Internet,now I want my notebook get on line,I bought a wireless router but Ubuntu(64-bite) can't connect to Internet through the wireless router.pppoeconf said that found eth0 and vboxnet0,but search concentrator failed and pppoeconf exited.How can I fix it.
Just installed ubunto 1104 and I cannot connect wirelesly to my router. When I go through the trouble shooting the recommendation is to got to the device drivers page but the link does not take me anywhere. Here is the info from the terminal.
I'm trying to connect to a new Belkin wireless router, but wicd refuses to connect. I've been reading some of the other threads but they haven't made much sense as the hardware is different.
The output from the iwconfig command is as follows:
When I ran lspci it told me I had a RaLink RT2800 802.11n PCI Network Controller. On the box it says it "Supports the most popular systems" and mentions Linux. I'm using a 63 character WPA2 password, which has been copied from a USB key, so I know that is correct.
I've only been using linux for a few days so I don't know all the tricks. I'm pretty savy configuring windows networks however.My adapter is (according to windows) a: CNet PRO200WL PCI fast ethernet adapterLinux says it is a: 21x4x DEC-tulip compatible 10/100 EthernetI do seem to be getting an ip address from the DHCP router, but I cannout ping any other ips or connect to the internet.I've tried a bunch of different options, switching things back and forth, but it still doesn't work, and honestly i don't even know what some of the options mean.
ALSO, if this helps: paladin:~ # ifconfig eth0 Eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:08:A1:03:3C:99
I have a dual-boot desktop with Windows 7 and Ubuntu.Problem: Linux does not recognize my D-Link DWA-131 Wireless N USB Adapter. So, I can't access my wireless router or the internet.D-Link has a Linux driver for the DWA-131 posted on their website URL...that includes a readme file with long, strange, convoluted instructions on how to install the driver.
We just set up a password for our wireless router (D-link DIR-615). WPA personal. After doing that, I can no longer connect to the internet. I can connect to the wireless router, however. Same problem for the Apple Macs in the house. We called Dlink. The fix for a Mac was to add DNS servers (18.104.22.168) under TCP/IP But there doesn't seem to be anywhere to specify a DNS server in Ubuntu.
I have had a router die on me and have bought another (maybe a bad buy!) The new router is Linksys WAG120n. Ethernet is fine. Laptop wireless adapter is Atheros AR5009 802 11a/g/n. I have setup a wireless connection but it is not connecting to it. I have checked the router settings and these seem to be OK! I'll try to give any details required.
