I have ASUS Laptop A6Rseries was running XP untill I installed Linux 9.10. Now i am having problem connecting to my wireless network. I am using Belkin router what works fine with XP, Vista and Windovs 7. Here is some information what I found

On Opensuse 11.2, I would like to connect my ipod touch to a wireless ad-hoc network of my laptop. I have no wireless WIFI-router at home, so I have to use the laptop as a router to the internet. I know I have to enter a static IP adres and my router's address, but where ? I haven't found any place under network tools to do this, only saw some fields with SSID's and MAC addresses to fill in.
My wireless (Toshiba laptop, 10.04 64 bit) is just hanging when trying to connect. It was working fine but now nothing. My Wireless antennae is on and my other laptop can connect with no problems. I have restarted the router and the laptop twice.
I'm at wits end...10.04 won't connect to a wireless network on my laptop, and that sort of makes it useless. What is the easiest way to revert back to 9.10? I have a dual-boot system with XP and I'd rather not have to start from scratch.
This will allow you to use iphones' data plan as a wireless access point. Currently setup instructions are only posted for windows/mac using a helper app to configure the laptop. Here are the instructions I followed to setup iphonemodem2 to work under Fedora 10: Download iPhoneModem2 from a jailbroken iphone using Cydia. Create a new wireless network on Fedora with the following settings:
a) SSID = "iPhoneModem" b) Mode = Ad-hoc c) IPv4 Method = Automatic (DHCP)
Connect laptop and iphone to new wireless network. Start iphonemodem app on iphone. The "traffic" does not update; the "status" says "Wrong Wifi Network"; and the signal strength says 0%. However, the network connection should be there as long as you have a data signal to your service provider.
I run Ubuntu 9.04 on a Toshiba NB205. I am suddenly having trouble connecting to the internet using my router or my cable modem for that matter. The weird thing is that I can:(1) connect to other networks just fine, and(2) my router/internet connection work fine when plugged into my desktop.I can't connect whether I'm plugged in with the ethernet cable directly from my modem or from my router, although both work fine when plugged into my desktop. Basically two green lights show up on networkmanager but it doesn't go from there to connecting.So the usual troubleshooting of moving the wires around and trying to connect like that just suggested that my laptop doesn't connect on the one router/internet connection that I happen to need.
sudo ifconfig gives: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr xxxxxxxxx
That is what I do to connect to Xbox Live and I just got an Insignia Blu-ray player that can only connect to BD-Live through an Ethernet connection, so I was wondering if I could apply that same concept to my Blu-ray player.
After searching/googling for information related to the topic, I haven't been able to get this working in KDE. Background: I have a Dell Studio 1745 with builtin Intel 5100bg wireless card. It connects to my Linksys WRT54G router just fine in openSUSE 11.2 & 11.3 using either KDE or Gnome. In Fedora 13 it only connects under Gnome, not KDE. Those are using NetworkManager. Using traditional ifup only works in Fedora under Gnome, i.e. nothing works under KDE in Fedora.
Since I installed fedora on my desktop (there is no other OS on my desktop computer at the moment) I can't connect to my laptop which has Windows XP installed on it, although I can normally connect to internet from both computers. Here is the drawing to illustrate how everything is connected:
On the picture you can see that the phone line goes to the ADSL modem. The ADSL modem is connected to the Wireless modem with LAN cable. Wireless modem is connected to my desktop computer with LAN cable, and trough the wireless connection to the laptop. Internet is working fine for both computers, but desktop can't see laptop and vice versa. What do I need to do in order to see the laptop?
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my Toshiba A200-12U laptop (with an Atheros AR5007EG wireless card), but networking is being problematic.I entered Network Configurations and tried to get 'Auto eth0' working -- I went to Edit > IPv4 settings and filled in 'Addresses' with the details of my connection:
Address: 192.168.1.254 (the local IP of my router) Netmask: 255.255.252.0 Gateway: 18.104.22.168
I'm not exactly sure if this should be here and not in the Hardware & Laptops section, but seeing as my only problem is with WiFi, I'm guessing this is the right place. Under Ubuntu, my laptop (an Asus K42Ja, more details below) can see wireless networks normally. However, when I attempt to connect, it fails to establish a connection. Under Windows on the same laptop (dual boot), no problems are experienced.
According to this, there's a firmware bug in my wireless chip which causes connections to get dropped. I'm not getting connections at all, but I still tried the workarounds on that page with no luck. The router is a TP-Link TL-WR340G. My previous laptop, a really old one from 2003 running Ubuntu 9.10 was able to connect to that router without problems. The wireless card was Intel on that as well (but, of course, much older). The router is set up to use WPA for security. I didn't use WPA2 as I read something a while ago about problems with WPA2 and some Linux distros. Please correct me if I'm wrong here.
If anyone's curious, I'm posting this on Ubuntu, via an ethernet cable to the router mentioned earlier. Some tasty technical bits: dmesg (the latter half of the "timed out" messages is me retrying after double-checking the WPA key)
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?

My laptop has been working fine with ubuntu 10.04, and earlier today it shut down after running out of battery. I came to use itr and discovered that the wifi icon had disappeared from the panel bar, and it won't connect to the wireless networkor via a wired connection.I have had a play around with this, tried ping -c5 google.comresult was:ping: unknown host google.comand ping -c5 22.214.171.124result: onnect:etwork is unreachable.I have other computers connecting to this network and know that it is working fine.
Desktop Server Linux OEL 5 (not wireless) cable connected to the WRT54G router port. (I can go to the Internet with this server, but not able to communicate other computers on the WRT54G Wireless Network. Even though, the Linux Server is connected to the WRT54G router port.) From the Hyper Terminal Wireless laptop Windows/XP, I want to connect to my Linux Server.
I would share my long awaited success with connecting my ubuntu laptop up to my universities (University of Western Sydney) wireless network. The rumors appeared true and they have finally implemented 802.11x authentication instead of that horrible java app netdirect. I am sure you've been cursing at its erratic stability. There is no linux documentation for airUWS-Lite nor anything more imformative than there windows/mac point and click steps found at [URL]. However with a few simple clicks you can have stable working connection.
When connecting make sure you have theses settings. Security: WPA & WPA2 Enterprise Authentication: Protected EAP (PEAP) #This is the settings that does not present itself correctly Anonymous Identity: leave blank PEAP Version: Automatic Inner Authentication: MSCHAPv2 Username: <YOUR 8 DIGIT STUDENT NUMBER> Password: your regular password
i have 3 comps(running ubuntu 10.04) and a laptop(running vista sp2). i have installed samba on all ubuntu comps. i have a printer attached to one of the comps and it has been shared also the internet connection on that comp has been shared. all the computers are connected using lan cables through an ethernet switch. i also have a wireless router which is connected to the ethernet switch.
I am able to view all the comps on the network except the laptop running vista. all the desktops are visible on the network and are able to print and share files on the network and also connect to the internet.the laptop running vista can connect to the internet but its not visible on the network and nor can it share files across the network or access the printer.all the systems have a static ip.
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 have installed the driver for my usb network adapterIt sees my adapter fineI see my two routers .....i have both a dsl routher and a router conntected to my cable modem ...it says signal strength of 90I see my neighbors network as well but when i try to connect to either of my routhersit will not let mei use WEB ... 128 bit..it asks for the passpharseit says it is activating....and the after a few minutes the same window back up againi know my pass phrase is correctwhen i reboot in windows ...everything works fine ...no problembut in 10.04 i can not connect to any networkwhat am i doing wrongI re entered my pass phrase a 100 times
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.
