Networking :: "campus" Wifi On-the-fly "campus" Wireless Network?

May 3, 2010

discover HOWTO for an on-the-fly "campus" wireless network? I will be part of a large youth sports event spread over several acres of grassy fields. I need a wireless network for the event operations and administration. I want to operate a private wireless lan, "under the stars" with a few puddles of kiosks participating.

Some of my thoughts:I need some sort of antenna for outside use with wifi.

I need a primary wifi access point.I could use a wifi router & access point to connect with the primary for each kiosk puddle.I could use a pair of wifi router & access point boxes, with directional antennae, as point to point.phone and tablet and pda and laptop boxes, in the hands of staff,could use this private wifi lan for event operations.I could put a LAMPP or XAMPP server someone on this lan for event operations
The server could have a connection to the public internet somehow

If I used one of the linux open-source wifi box, hotspot images or similar, I could manage this lan as a group of steamer-trunk, drop and setup stations.

Ubuntu Networking :: Campus Wifi Network Not Showing Up In Maverick?

Oct 12, 2010

I upgraded to Maverick over the weekend from Lucid, and at school yesterday, I could no longer connect to the campus wifi network in my office. I have no problem connecting to the wifi network at home, and my phone still sees and connects to the campus wifi network, so I think the problem is with my laptop (Gateway T-6345u), which doesn't even detect the campus network. As of last week, it connected automatically, and now it can't even see the network.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To Campus Wireless Network

Feb 15, 2011

I've got Ubuntu 10.10 loaded on my HP mini, and haven't had any problem with wireless connection before. But since I've started going to my local community college, I've been completely unable to connect to the campus-wide wireless network save for once. I don't know anything about the network other than that it has no encryption.

I have only attempted to connect, thus far, using Ubuntu's built-in autoconnector. Is there a way that I can see what issue it's having, maybe get an error output? The auto connector can't seem to negotiate a DHCP lease, it just times out trying to talk to 255.255.255.255 on port 67. I can't think of why this would be, no one else I've talked to with a laptop has any problem connecting. Is there some, more sophisticated method of working out an IP address that Windows/Macintosh knows to do and Ubuntu doesn't?

Ubuntu Networking :: No Internet Access Through Wireless Campus Network?

Feb 10, 2011

I am trying to connect to the college campus wifi network, but having difficulties in Linux.I am dual-booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10, and I use Google Chrome web browser on both. When I boot into Windows, my laptop connects to the network (as I can see from the taskbar icon) and I can (and currently am) connect in Chrome.However, in Ubuntu, it connects (or so the icon indicates) but Chrome doesn't load any pages.The campus network is unsecured, but once you open the browser, you are prompted with a log-in page (student ID and password) to actually connect.Here is my output for iwconfig:

Code:

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To The Campus Network?

Mar 2, 2010

I recently went back to Linux on my netbook because Windows 7 was too laggy (1gb of RAM, go figure). I've never been able to connect to the protected wireless network on my campus without using Windows, though, so I was hoping someone could help me finally get that figured out.

The school has a how-to for connecting to the network using various operating systems, including Linux, here (scroll down to the bottom to choose OS). After following the guide through the CA certificate it mentions, the network manager tries to connect for a while then just sort of times out and asks me to enter the information again. Using Wicd, I noticed that this timeout appears to happen when trying to obtain an IP (after authentication).

My system: Acer Aspire One AOA150 with an Intel 4965AGN wireless card (installed by me a few months back, have had no problems with the card itself not working). I've installed Kubuntu 9.10 Netbook edition and done all available updates. My campus offers an unprotected "Visitor" network that I can connect to without issue, but they limit what you can access using the unprotected network so I need to be able to connect to the WPA2 one.

I've tried getting help from on-campus IT but keep getting told that none of them know how to use Linux, which makes me wonder who exactly wrote the how-to on their website... The guides on the website are for older versions of Ubuntu, but I figured they would remain applicable on a later-version Kubuntu install.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To A Campus Wi-Fi Network?

Mar 17, 2011

The more I use Windows, the more disgusted I get with it lol. So I would really enjoy using Ubuntu on campus instead of Windows, but I can't seem to get it to work. They have PDF files explaining how to connect with Windows XP - Windows 7 and Mac OS X, but nothing for a Linux distro. Here is the link to the PDFs [URL], and here are the settings I've tried to use to connect [URL] . I know that the CA is right (unless I need to us the Ubuntu version).

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Internet In Campus?

Jan 22, 2010

I have a problem which is connecting automatically to my spwireless. On my windows, my schools provide me the disc which contains several .cer files and a automated batch files to copy the .cer files to the root folders. I can choose to use the other network but in using that, i have to manually connect compared to using the spwireless. Anyway, my problem is that, how do i add the .cer files and to where so when i connect to the network it will look there for the cert. Because when i manually connect, only one cer can be chosen.

Ubuntu Security :: Can't Connect To Netdisk Space From Off-campus Using The Secure WebDAV Bookmark

Jan 13, 2010

My workplace recently switched to Active Directory for our netdisk space (I work at a University in the US). The "only way" (recommended) by our IT department is to use a cifs protocol. I've had absolutely no luck with that at all. However, it turns out that there is secure WebDAV protocol setup which works well on campus. If I'm off campus I have to connect via a VPN connection; our school uses Cisco Anyconnect 2.3.0254. It works well for me to connect to a printer, etc on campus.

Here's my problem: I can't connect to my netdisk space from off-campus using the Secure WebDAV bookmark that was working oncampus, even when I am connected via the VPN connection. I am using UFW. Is there a port I need to open up, or am I missing something else?

Fedora Networking :: FC10 - Wifi Devices To Work On 128bit WEP Network - Linksys Wireless-G And 5100AGN

Jun 20, 2009

I'm having trouble getting my wifi devices to work on my 128bit WEP network. I have a new Thinkpad T400, with an internal Intel PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN. I also have some cardbus cards: a Lucent ORiNOCO Gold, a Linksys Wireless-G, and a TRENDnet TEW-421PC. I have them set up as interfaces eth2, eth1, and eth3. (The TRENDnet isn't recognised as a network card at all, so no interface for it.) I have installed the latest firmware for the Linksys card.

The /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* files are virtually identical for all of them, differing only in the HWADDR and DEVICE lines. So here's the behaviour:

1. The Lucent card comes up just fine.
2. The internal 5100AGN and the Linksys cards won't come up, and watching with iwconfig shows that they're either associated with my AP OR they've got an encryption key set -- but not both.
3. When trying to bring up the 5100AGN, I get the following messages:

iwlagn: index 0 not used in uCode key table
iwlagn: index 3 not used in uCode key table

/var/log/messages shows DHCPDISCOVER requests being sent, but they're bound to fail since the association with the AP with WEP isn't being completed. And yes, the ifcfg-* files really *are* identical except for the DEVICE and HWADDR lines. The /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules file correctly maps the interfaces to the MAC addresses. So why does my antique ORiNOCO card work and thew newer ones fail? How can I track down what's being done wrong/not being done?

Networking :: Using Ethernet To Power WiFi Network And Setting Up WiFi?

Aug 23, 2009

I have an old PowerBook G4 that I would like to use as a 'dummy' computer for learning wireless penetration (WEP/WPA attacks) more effectively. I had been using a wireless router, but I gave it away I can use Mac OS X to share an ethernet connection over wifi, but this is _very_ un-configurable. You get two options only, WEP and a key-length. So, I would like to install someway to make this wireless connection more configurable.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Upgrading WiFi Network To 802.11n?

Oct 18, 2010

I currently have a WiFi network at home that serves two PC's, a Laptop (all SUSE 11.3) and a couple of WiFi radios. I also use IPCop as the Firewall. The system currently uses 802.11g, but the PC's and Laptop really struggle to achieve any reasonable internet data speeds, particularly as their RF range to the Wireless Router is very disappointing, so I have a couple Wireless Access Points. Unfortunately, whilst these WAPs might slightly improve RF coverage, connecting to the Router via one of them only serves to slow down the internet upload and download speeds even further. (Not much point in paying for expensive 4M internet access if I am only achieving a typical download of 500-600k!)

I want to completely replace my 802.11g with 802.11n - to both improve range and throughput. I'm looking at the 'Netgear Range Max Dual Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router' as this also has 2.4GHz (my WiFI radios are only 2.4GHz compatible). Unless, of course, anyone has any good reason to recommend I DON'T purchase it? My problem is that I am struggling to find up to date, accurate information that can advise me on which 802.11n (2.4GHz and 5GHz) PCI cards, PCMCIA and USB Adapters are compatible with SUSE.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Lenovo W510 Connect To Home Wifi But Not 802.1X Work Network

Oct 8, 2010

I recently got a lenovo w510 laptop and I installed openSUSE 11.3 KDE on it. the wireless works fine at home (802.11g WPA2) when I go to work I have tried to set up the wifi for the 802.1X PEAP network but it doesn't look like it even tries to connect.

The work network set up is as follows. non-brodcasting SSID (do I need to tell network manager of this? I manually enter the SSID no problem)

Dynamic WEP 802.1X
PEAP
blank anonymous identity
no CA cert (I suspect this might be the problem)
PEAP v 1
MSCHAPv2

I have verified my username and pw several times, as well as the SSID. Just yesterday I helped a co-worker get on the network under ubuntu and it worked like a charm.

The Hardware profile displays the wifi card as a "WiFi Link 6000 Series" It is an intel card.

Ubuntu :: Disconnection And Connects To Unavailable Wifi - Authentication Required By Wireless Network

Jun 8, 2010

When my router switches off... the wifi signals go off... then why the hell ubuntu keeps on connecting to that very wifi like hell and when doesnt connect shows the prompt to manually connect... with the wifi key already filled in... whats the use of saving the key when it has to ask the question from me either to connect or not?? and if its isnt available... just wait when its available.. and for the prompt,i have only option to cancel(because wifi isnt available at that moment if i select connect it again tries to connect like hell..which it cant) and if i cancel it wont auto-connect when wifi does get available! what the heck?

Windows has this done the right way... when the wifi isnt available.. it dissconnects silently.. and when it becomes available connects silently.. why isnt this been done this way in ubuntu??

Ive attached an image..one can see in the image that it says "authentication required by wireless network" when there isnt any.. as router has gone down!

And the second thing i want to report is that there is no way to report this bug from ubuntu... the launchpad.net talks of going through bug reporting process which is done against a definite package... now how does a user know which package would be causing this error?? there should be a more clear process of reporting such bugs to ubuntu team... which a common man using ubuntu( ubuntu says its most user friendly of all distros right?) can report..

Fedora Networking :: WiFi Does Not Seem To Find Wireless Routers

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi - Set Up The Wireless Connection Using WPA But Could Not Connect

Mar 19, 2010

Using an old (5 year) laptop with XP loaded I installed wubi to save altering partitions etc. It all downloaded fine and connected to the internet by wire. I set up the wireless connection using WPA but could not connect. The wirelsss card does see my network and others. After lurking around the forum and trying various things I found that I could connect without encryption. The more I read the more I became confused.
Anyway what I could glean about my Wireless Card it is a Intersil Prism2 mini usb adapter - but also shows up as an Acer ?? Warplink 802.11.

Using lshw I found this reference to wireless

I became even more confused and got a bit lost using the various codes in the terminal and looking up things about drivers etc but would like to persist.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.10 Wireless Connectivity Fail For Wifi?

Oct 31, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10. I was using iBall N 150M USB adapter for internet connection with Windows XP. Let me explain about the present Windows connection :

I am using an Outdoor CPE Wimax. For mobility purpose I have connected this wimax to one LAN port of ADSL+ WiFi router ( Beetel 450 TC1 ). This ADSL+wifi router reset to Factosy settings and enabled DHCP. With this setting , I am perfectly able to connect my laptop to Internet.

When I connect my USB adapter to Ubuntu , intially it detected the signal and asked for credentials. I gave the same and network established. But I am not able to browse the net. If I give [URL]..., its going to the ADSL+Wifi's diagnosis page. With Windows , [URL]... was going to the Wimax modem. After 2-3 trial and error , now Ubuntu also not able to connect to the wifi network.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can See My Wifi Network - But Can't Connect

Feb 18, 2011

So recently we switched Internet Providers. While we had Bellsouth, my laptop would connect to our wireless internet flawlessly everytime. However, we just switched to Charter because it was both cheaper and faster. But now, my laptop will not connect to our wireless. If I hook it up to an Ethernet cord, it connects just fine. I believe they gave us a new modem/router or whatever it is that sends out the wifi signal.

I have tried to connect with this laptop on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Backtrack 4. On Ubuntu and Linux Mint, after I enter the correct WEP key, it sits there and tried to connect for a minute or two, but then the window pops up asking for the WEP key again, even though it's still filled out.

When I tried connecting on Backtrack, it told me that it could not obtain an IP address.
