Networking :: Computer Won't Connect To A Wireless Network
Jul 28, 2011
Hey I just installed linux on my computer and it will not connect to any wireless networks, it will detect them and say try to connect but for some reason wont. It does connect just fine to a wired network.
if I install dhcp ip on my computer, then my computer will not connect to the network, but if I set it up with static ip then my computer will connect to the network. but after 5 minutes later my computer will be mounted from the server dhcp ip. and my computer is not connected anymore to the network dropped out again.
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my work computer. We have numerous machines on our Network, on Windows 7, I could never see the network machines listed but I could connect to individual machines simply by typing it's name in the address bar of the file explorer, such as://COMPUTER-NAMEWhen I connected my mac, I could access other computer's files using Apple + K smb://10.0.1.xxx
cannot connect to my window computer using open SuSe
I am attempting to connect to my Windows Computer via a wired network on a sky router. When I tried with PClinuxOS it configured automatically. With the latest version of open SuSe 13.1this is quite a bit different. I have got as far as the network being auto and active with an Icon showing on the taskbar. However when I click on the Windows network Icon SuSe tyies to locate my Computer but then comes back with " failed to reteive share list from server. This is as far as I can get after several hours of trying.
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 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 have the following problem:I have to networks in remote places.I have an opnvpn client in one network that connects to the the router (openvpn server).My question is,can i connect the network where the openvpn client is,throught the computer with the client to the other network.If yes,how? (please make it an idiot proof anwser because i have limited knowledge about iptables). I was thinking like forwarding (the router in the network with the openvpn client is also firewalling with iptables) the request of the ip class of the openvpn network to the computer with the client,which masquarades the interface
Installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my Sony UX280p with Intel 4965 wireless. Ubuntu detects the card without issues (as far as I can tell). I can see all access points in my area and select my access point and pair with it. I get a DHCP address from the AP (if ifconfig is to be believed) and iwconfig shows the ESSID of my AP but I can't ping the AP or any other computer on the network, nor can I ping the sony from any other computer on my network. Last year I had installed 9.04 on this computer and wifi worked out of the box without any issues.
I picked up a cheap PC the other day for �20 and it came with a Belkin N Wireless USB adapter. I know the adapter works because Windows XP was originally installed and I could connect with no problems. I wasn't able to connect when I installed Kubuntu so I thought I'd see if I could have any more luck with Fedora....so far, not so good! I realise that this is a fairly common problem, especially for this USB adapter, but I've tried dozens of threads here and elsewhere and still can't get Fedora online.I can see the wireless networks in the list, but if I try and connect then I just repeatedly get asked to enter the authentication details, which I know I'm providing correctly.
I have upgraded to Fedora 15 but cannot get wireless up and running. When i switch on wireless and choose the connection it tries for 15 seconds before prompting me for the password and continues like this. When i check the device in my network config it shows as being inactive. Ralink device 3060
On my laptop HP presario, I installed Ubuntu 9.10 (Wubi). My Windows Vista connection works fine, but the Ubuntu cannot find my wireless network. My network card is the Belkin Wireless N (F5D8233-4v3). Do I have to use the ndis. On my desktop here, (wired) Ubuntu found my card without me having to do anything. What should I do. (unistall ubuntu and make do with Vista?)

I upgraded from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 this morning, and I can't connect to my wireless network. The Network Manager shows it's there, with the correct SSID and security key and everything, yet it still won't connect. I'm using a D-Link DI-524 Wireless Router that I've never had any problem with before.
I'm having a little issue here with my laptop. I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick/Meerckat on my Lenovo Thinkpad T61p about 3 hours ago and it can't seem to connect to the wireless network... I've had the same problem when I moved from Windows to Ubuntu on my desktop but I've been able to fix it completely. The thing is I can't remember how I fixed it :S So, I updated my system, downloaded the additional drivers. Also, I cna connect to the ethernet network. To fix my desktop, I used some command lines that someone posted in a thread about the wireless keeping disconnecting... I just can't find that post though :S What I remember about the post was that there was someone who had posted a thing with like a parabolic thing around he wireless adapter (LOL)
Earlier in the week, I installed 10.10, but had awful problems trying to get the wireless networking working. Upgraded to 11.04, and wireless is sort of working. However, I am unable to connect to my wireless network. It sees the network, but just keeps asking me for the password. I enter this (I have checked that it is correct), but it just prompts again, after a little while. Networking through network cable works fine.
Wireless network is set up to use WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK. I have checked, and I do have wpa_supplicant loaded.
I upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 from 10.10 a couple of days ago and now I cannot connect to my wireless network. I can see all the networks and I managed to connect to something called BTopenzone, just to see if I could connect to anything, and that worked. I also run windows 7 on the same computer and setup and it connects fine to my wireless network. Before I installed the Ubuntu upgrade I could connect without any problems. I've had a look at the settings for the connection in Ubuntu but I don't understand them.
My router is a dlink dir-655 My receiver is a edimax ew-7711uan wireless usb adapter

I've just finished doing the basic install of Ubuntu 10.04. I have the SSID, password, etc.set up for my wireless network. The network icon will show the PC is connected to the network but I can't connect to the internet. I'm using a Zoom 4411 Wireless-N USB adapter which works fine under Windows. I DL'd the driver files (rt2780) from Ralink using the Windows partition but they need to be compiled(the topic for another query.)Since I can't connect, I can't get Buildessential or Checkinstall.
I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop on which I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10. Most things work, but the wireless will not connect to my home wireless network (a Linksys WRT54G). (Cannot see any other WIFI antennas from here, so I don't know if it works on other networks). Ubuntu says I have an Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG, Kernel Driver ipw2200.
When I try to look for a wireless network, Ubuntu doesn't see any. (Every other computer in the house does, Macs and PCs). I tried Connect to Hidden Wireless Network > New > and filled in the name and the WEP password that the Linksys gave me.When I select Connect to Hidden Wireless Network and select the network that I entered all the information for, the Connect button is always grayed out.
I cannot connect to my wireless network. i have a Dell mini 9 with ubuntu. i lost my internet service for a couple of days. it was back on today but when i went to connect to the internet the screen on my computer reads "OFFLINE MODE" Web Browser is in offline mode and cnnot connect to the internet. How do i fix?
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit on my HP Touchsmart TX2 1020us which has a Broadcom 4322 chip. At first my computer didn't seem to see the card at all, but then I typed the command (sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source) and then restarted the computer and now I'm connected to the network, but cannot connect to the internet so how do I figure this out. Like I said I have very little experience with linux at all so please don't make your answers too complicated.
This is baffling me but I am easily baffled/baffeld? I carefully followed these instructions to install a a working driver http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=760568. It all went fine, my wireless light came on and it detected my wireless network. I know my WPA2 code (I can connect on the same computer in windows 7) and my keyring code. but I still can't connect it whirs away for quite a while before giving up and saying not connected.[Code]....
