Since this is my first post, before i describe my problem, i'd like to say regrats to all of you for maintaining here such a good support community.
So, here we go: I have a headless Debian box and i want to set it up as a small office router/gateway. On the box i installed a regular NIC and a Viking Traverse ADSL+ Card which gets recognised by the OS as an 8139 ethernet card and has an embedded ADSL+ modem. The modem is accesible through the PHY interface once it gets assigned an IP. Having said that here is the actual setup:
eth0 : Viking Card
eth1 : NIC (this NIC is connected to a switch)
eth0 : 192.168.1.2 (internal modem is on 192.168.1.1)
eth1 : 192.168.1.3
Because of the configuration of my house, I need two routers.I have a DLink ADSL router as my main router and the Belkin N1 as my repeater.I have set up the IP address in the Belkin to be 10.1.1.10 - my DLink is 10.1.1.1. I have disable the dhcp in the Belkin and set the DNS as ISP provided. [URL]..I have set the channel to 11 and in the Ubuntu Network Manger I have set the IPV4 to Link Local Only. I can see the Belkin and connect with my PC.but it will not take me through to the internet.
I have a desktop PC running Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7, and a Eee PC 701 laptop running EasyPeasy Ubuntu 9.04. I'd like to connect the desktop to the laptop with a wired connection (eth0), then the laptop to my ADSL router using wireless (ath0).
I have a crossover ethernet cable (I bought on ebay). I have set up my laptop with a static IP address on my LAN and it uses OpenDNS.
I have added this to /etc/sysctl.conf on the laptop:
This is a variation on what I found on other sites describing how to set up a router. I don't understand iptables very well, but I gather that the above two lines should set up forwarding so that traffic from my router to the laptop will be forwarded to the desktop, and vice versa.
But this doesn't work. The connection doesn't even establish between the laptop and the desktop.
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.
Does anyone have an opinion on the BELKIN F5Z0142uk Enhanced Wireless ADSL Router Network Kit, I want to setup a small home LAN and this kit caught my eye, it includes a usb Wi-Fi dongle for connectivity to a desktop computer, one of my pc's doesnt have a network card so this sounds like a good idea. Whats the build quality like and is it reliable. The link: [URL]
What are the pros and cons of various current model ADSL modem routers for use with DD-WRT, OpenWRT or Tomato? There are, of course, hardware compatibility lists (HCLs) for each of these (DD-WRT, OpenWRT and Tomato) but many of the models are no longer available and there are so many that researching them all would be onerous. Many pages on the Internet recommend the WRTG54L and that would be great but it is no longer an option except second user which is increasingly difficult. What are the pros and cons of the various chipsets: ADM5120, AR7, IXP4xx and BCM63xx?
I use a wired Dlink Adsl Router GLB502T with its inbuilt dialer configured. Problem is it will not connect while computer is running.When I try to ping the local ip of the modem this is what I get "ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted" and "/etc/init.d/networking restart" has no effect either.I need to restart my computer every time i want to connect to the Internet.I switch on the modem when the grub bootloader appears and the modem connects without any problem.This problem appeared when i installed Ubuntu 9.04.There was no problem with Ubuntu 8.04.
OS:Ubuntu 9.04 Motherboard: Asus M2N68-AM NVIDIA Geforce 7025/nForce 630a RTL8211CL Phy Gigabit LAN
I have 2 pcs at home. I dont have a switch so I can connect only one PC at a time to my adsl router/modem for internet access. In the past I had successfully connected the two PCs (NIC to NIC) to each other using the same ethernet cable which was supplied with my dlink adsl modem.
Recently the motherboard of on of my PC went bad so I replaced it with a new one. The problem is when I connect the two using the same Ethernet cable they won't connect. The lights on the Ethernet port won't light up. I can still connect both of them to the adsl router (NIC to Router) (one at a time).
I'm having trouble getting my network set up the way that I want it/had it. You see, when I first set up my network, I just had my cable modem going directly to my standard wired router (A D-Link DI-604), which had DHCP,and was connected to all of the computers on my network. I had one switch hooked up to one of the ports of the router, but this was a regular switch, and it would not try to assign IP addresses, it would just pass through the DHCP info as I wanted.
Now however, my network setup has changed. My room mate and I both got laptops, and we decided that we wanted to have wireless access so we didn't have to constantly plug in to the router.
Now my network is set up like this: The modem is hooked up to the router(DI-604), which is hooked up on the LAN side to our computers, our switch (which is hooked up to 3 more computers), and to a wireless router card (A Gigabyte GN-BC01).
The wireless router card has two jacks for ethernet. One for WAN, and one for LAN. The LAN side we have plugged only into the computer in which the card is installed.
Now the problem is this: The wireless router card comes with DHCP by default, and it's assigning addresses to the laptops and to the computer hat it's in, and worse, the IP addresses are on a different subnet than that of the main dlink router. The Main (dlink) router assigns addresses from 192.168.0.1 (itself) to 192.168.0.254, while the wireless router card assigns addresses from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 (itself).
Because of this, I cannot access services on the wireless network from my wired network or vice versa. The first thing I tried was setting the card to assign addresses from 192.168.0.12 to 192.168.0.253, however it just said "internal error" when I tried to do this. I decided that this may be because it sees that it was being assigned an address on it's WAN side on the same subnet. So the next thing I tried was disabling DHCP and setting the "LAN IP Address" to 192.168.0.12, hoping that the DHCP would just go through the card, like a switch. I would have set the LAN IP address to be assigned by DHCP, but this was not an option, so I decided that'd be the best thing to set it to.
Once again however, setting the LAN ip address to an address on the same subnet as that of the IP assigned to it's WAN side caused it to report an "internal error". I verified that this was the issue by setting the LAN address to several other private IP addresses to test (I.E. 10.0.0.1, 192.168.3.1, 192.168.5.12).
My question then really is: How do I set up both routers so that I can access services and computers from each network from the other network. Should I set them with different subnets and set the gateway on the wireless network to the main router? To the wireless router card? Should I put them on the same subnet? Will it know how to communicate?

After reinstall Ubuntu 10.04 LTS didn't recognize my ADSL router Billion 400 G.The Ethernet 1 led is off after booting.Search on web for help on this but no good results.You good people now are my last resort.I tried boot in live CD and result is the some.Check with sudo lshw.
I'm going to set up a new linux router for a company, and have to set up bandwidth throttling. They have an unlimited ADSL internet connection which will be shared between 2 businesses, one being them. I will need to set it up so their connection will never be slowed down by the other business. They will both be connected to the same NIC, but will be on different subnets. How would I go about doing this?
Using SuSE 11.2 can anybody suggest a decent compatible Ethernet / Network Colour Printer. Just a printer not a multifunction device. The printer will be connected to a Fast Ethernet Switch or directly into the ADSL Router.
My router/adsl modem is not connected to a power supply so when power goes and comes the network will do a re-boot. Now the problem is my OpenSUSE network won't come back on! I set the static ip as Autoeth0 to eth0 however when network updates I losse eth0. Why is this happening? Why doesn't the PC simply re-connect? Can I do it via command line?
recently I have installed a suse 10 sp2 on my computer. I have a big problem about connecting to my ADSL Router. The problem is that I can't ping the router at all and the Kinternet log is prompted that
status is: disconnected trying to connect to smpppd connect to smpppd Status is: disconnected error: cannot read real interface for eth-bus-pci-0000:04:00.0
I can easily open the web page of my router with windows OS but in the suse I can not do that with firefox.
I have an adsl modem acting as a bridge to my router my setup was working well for more than year now , but then the internet went slow . I set the modem back to PPPoE the problem was with the DNS server of the ISP so using ifup i set the dns t 22.214.171.124 (google) the connection is back , but when i set the modem back as a bridge slow internet does the router know that my dns is 126.96.36.199 or i should set the dns on the router ? I can't see an option to set the dns on the router ( i just enter my username and password from the isp to use PPPoE mode ) by the way i called the isp support they kept telling me to restart , i told them i did but i never restarted my pc . I'm sure if i tell them i'm running linux they will blame the os !
I am running ubuntu server x64 as a router. I currently have 2 LAN cards, eth0 and eth1. and I want to add wireless capabilites to the machine.I was wondering if any of you know which card I could use?I want it to be supported in ubuntu server and it must be n-draft, as it is to replace a Edimax n-draft router.
I have a Belkin Wireless G F5D7230-4. I was attempting to configure a wireless card on another computer on my network when it froze during the reboot phase after making settings adjustments. The wired connection is fine, except on that computer that I was making the adjustments from. It won't connect at all. I plugged a friends netbook into the same wired line and it connected. Also there is no wireless signal on any laptops. Mac, Win Linux, don't matter. I tried all the various methods of resetting to default but still when I try to access the router's config page @ http://192.168.2.1 I get the error Code: The server at 192.168.2.1 is taking too long to respond.
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.
i've installed debian lenny 5.0.4 in my hp laptop,using an officiel cd , i've installed ppp, pppoe, pppoeconf to configure an adsl connection (the dhcp is automatically configured on eth0)the trouble is : that ifconfig works fine, but when i want to connect it is impossible , this is my interfaces file:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
I have a Debian computer with 2 network interfaces. Ath0 for wifi and eth0 for cable. They're configured as dhcp and are getting their ip from different routers. When I shut down one of the router, it takes 5 minutes for the ip address to "Go away". I would like this to take a shorter time. I figured it must be a setting, but my attempts so far have been unsuccessfull. Is there a way to do this?
I have a Debian 5 system with two nics. eth0 is set up with dhcp-client which will receive a public ip address from my isp. The eth1 will be for my local network and I want to use dhcp-server daemon to serve addresses to my internal network. The area I am confused about is how transmissions are getting sent between nics. I've been told to enable tcp forwarding but I don't understand how that would work since the nics have different network addresses... unless tcp forwarding is basically nat or something..
