Networking :: Wireless Automatic Connect On Bootup?

Nov 30, 2008

Distro: Debian (Testing), Wireless Card: Intel Pro/Set Wireless 2200bg

I am using Fluxbox as a window manager, and sometimes not using X at all, so I need to be able to be connected to some pre-selected wireless networks without the assistance of Network Manager.

I remember I used to be able to do this in Debian by editing /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf, but it seems it has been moved. wpasupplicant is installed on this system however, I tried to do an apt-get install and it said that it was already installed.

While I was installing Debian (testing), it asked for an external source for my wireless card firmware. As I didn't have a flash drive handy, I had to skip this step and do the setup through a wired network connection.

After the initial install. I manually installed the ipw2200 firmware (I have an Intel Pro/Set Wireless 2200bg card). It looks like this worked because I was getting a missing firmware error when I was booting up previously, and it went away after I did this. I be able to check with modprobe? I'm a bit rusty with this.

I checked my /etc/network/interfaces file and it does not look like my wireless card is in there, I see the loopback and the wired card eth0.

This is my ideal setup:

1. Attempt connecting to wired network (if present)
2. Attempt connecting to wireless networks in this order:
a. Home (WPA protected, hidden SSID)
b. Work (WEP protected)
c. Library (Open, No security)

Networking :: Wireless Network Connection - Router - Won't Connect Fast - Automatic

May 26, 2009

My computer takes a while to connect to my Linksys N router.

It used to connect in a snap of your finger automatically.

Now it does not.

Yes I have tried manual configuration, and double checking the password, ssid, protocols, and security type.

WPA2 personal is the security type.

There are maybe 4 different ways I know how to connect. The most annoying thing is when this box pops up saying to type in a password for the network connection.. and keeps popping up even when everything is right.

All I need is a reliable, easy, and automatic program to connect me to the internet, maybe even before I log into my system.

Linux Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Desktop Edition is my system. Brilliant system.

General :: Configured System To Connect To A Wireless Network On Bootup?

Mar 16, 2011

I have configured my system to connect to a wireless network on bootup, but now every time I boot I have to wait and watch it connect (it outputs some dhcp connect stuff) which delays the boot process. is there any way to just initialize the script and then go on with the boot process instead of letting it output some pointless crap and waiting for it to end?

Ubuntu Networking :: Unwanted Automatic Wireless Connection?

Jan 4, 2010

I'm new to Ubuntu so bear with me. I installed 9.10 from a CD and it looks fine and works OK wired. However, my wireless keeps picking up a connection at home via my Linksys router that is not mine and I can't get around it, blacklist it or delete it. No matter what I do it keeps showing back up as an AutoConnection. It is the same type of router as mine but the security is different (I use WPA-Personal and the offender is WEP). How can I permanently blockdisableetc the extra connection? I can't get on my home network until the bad autoconnection is gone. More info: I use an IBM R40 into which I installed a Toshiba mini-PC wireless card. I know it works as I have used it to connect to other wireless networks other than my own. I prefer to leave my router configured as it is due to other users at home and the configs I use for them. I read about WICD if that is a possibility, but actually connecting wirelessly is not the issue.

Ubuntu Networking :: Automatic Wireless Connections Undesirable

Jan 25, 2011

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to change the behavior of Network Manager, so that it will only automatically connect to certain wireless networks which I specify, and not automatically connect to others I may have previously used. For example, there are a lot of wifi networks called "linksys", and I don't want the program to automatically try to connect to whichever one it finds.If someone can tell me in which file(s) the list of these connections is stored, I might be able to write a script which will edit that list on startup.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Card - WEP Encryption For Wireless Router Not Allow Me To Connect

May 5, 2011

wlan0 Authentication capabilities :


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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Tenda W322P Wireless Card Crashing Wireless Router On Connect

Jun 30, 2011

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 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.

Fedora Networking :: Wireless With Inspiron 1501 Bcm4311 Rev01 / Trying To Connect To A Hidden Wireless Network?

May 5, 2009

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?

Fedora Networking :: Wireless Won't Connect In 13 KDE

Jul 15, 2010

I installed Fedora 13 from the KDE live cd on it's own partition. My router was recognized and the networkmanager applet in the panel shows signal strength is nearly 100%. At boot, the networkmanager is in a constant state of "configuring connection" and the password window pops up three times. I click ok each time and then the icon changes to "network unavailable", that looks like an ethernet cable unplugged. Wired ethernet works fine. The rt2800 module is loaded for my wireless g/n card.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless LAN Does Not Connect

Apr 14, 2010

Installed Ubuntu 10.4 Beta on my Asus Eee 901 (the old Windows XP got tired...) Nice install, BTW, but Networking does not work. I have a very run-of-the-mill Linksys wireless router, which uses WPA2 passord authentication on the wireless side. Ubuntu clearly does try to connect, but then asks me for the password again, repeated a few times and then gives up. The SSID is OK (same I use on my Windows machines) and the same for the password, so it must be something Ubuntu does to the password. Bug or operator error?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Can't Connect - 9.04?

Apr 23, 2010

After playing around with 9.04 for several months and getting used to linux (I have tried several distros but like ubuntu the best), I decided to reinstall to have a clean system. My wireless has been working great using ndiswrapper. Now after re-install and updating the system, here is my problem. The USB Network Adapter is seen and the wireless network is seen but it never connects. It just keeps asking for the passphrase (I have WPA2 Personal turned on). I have tried turning off the wireless security but that doesn't seem to have any effect.

I have done the things I did before to get the wireless connecting - disabling the native driver (which doesn't work at all) as well as the broadcom drivers which seem to interfere with ndiswrapper. I also tried downloading and compiling the ralink native driver (v but that didn't work.Here is the setup:PC with dual core processors running at 2 Ghz3 GB ramUbuntu 9.04Belkin N150 Enhanced Wireless RouterBelkin N150 Enhaced Wireless USB Network Adapter (uses the rt2870 driver.)

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Will Not Connect?

Jul 7, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 x86 on my netbook. When I try to connect to the office WLAN I get the usual "%SSID% Connection established" but my network status icon in the panel doesn't change.

I then go online and sometime it works sometimes it doesn't. When it does work it is extremely slow. My first though was maybe it is because the router is set in mixed mode, this wasn't the case as my router at home is mixed mode and works fine. Then I thought maybe its the DNS so I set the DNS address to (googles open DNS server) - same thing, still slow.

Next I thougt it maybe an incombatability between ubuntu and the router, a collegue of mine uses ubuntu also (10.04 x86) and he has exactly the same problem.

When I connect to the router using a cat 5 I get a similar problem, the network status icon changes to connected but the connection is still extremely slow. I know it's not the line because pleanty of other PC's use the same connection and it's fine. Again when we try it on my collegues ubuntu machine its the same thing.

So at the moment I know its not my machine or the DNS or the WLAN

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Get Wireless To Connect

I'm a first time user of ubuntu and I am having huge issues getting my wireless to work. I've tried using the troubleshooting guide, but it says that it's already installed and to go to windows wireless drivers to install the .inf file. Problem is.. I can't find the file anywhere. When I type lspci into the terminal this is what it says: 03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01)

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To DSL Via Wireless?

Oct 1, 2010

I just took the plunge again and purged Windows 7 from my desktop computer and replaced it with the Lucid Lynx

Now my problem is I was using "Internet Connection Sharing" in Windows 7 to let my laptop and netbook connect to the Internet via wireless. Now I don't have the option of sharing my Internet connection anymore as Ubuntu would require me to have two network interface devices to do this, thus I am trying to make my laptop and netbook connect to the DSL modem via the wireless AP (which is possible in Windows as my wife is doing it right now on her laptop).

How do I go about getting my laptop (running Lucid Lynx) and netbook (Lucid Lynx Netbook Remix) to connect to the DSL modem via a wireless connection?
