Networking :: Can't Get Slackware Online With New Modem

Apr 5, 2010

A couple of months ago, I replaced a broken down modem for my DSL connection. I've learned time and again that Verizon is completely of no help to Linux customers, and so any problems I ever experience, I''m pretty much on my own. These days, I am running no windows whatsoever. Previously, when I got a new modem I would run verizon's windows software to set up the modem for DHCP, and then any distro I chose to run wo0uld connect automatically.

Well, without the ability to run windows, it's a lot more problematic. I have only managed to get some debian-based distros online by running an application called pppoeconf or pppoe-config. No slackware, and since a few months ago I released my own live CD that's based on Slax, this is embarassing and frustrating to say the least. DNS, pppoe, TCP/IP... this is not my thing.

Now I've got Slackware 13 installed, and I've been running netconfig and pppoe-setup, and according to the results I get when I run pppoe-status, I should be online :

And here is where I was supposed to have posted the results of my non-error messsage, but I don't seem to have saved it from the last time I was loggen into slackware. Looks like I'll have to do it again

Ubuntu Networking :: Install Modem Driver For The Alcatel X200 USB Modem?

Mar 23, 2011

find and install modem driver for the Alcatel X200 USB modem?

I've been all over the internet trying to locate Linux drivers but no success. Alcatel's website says is not supported, only in Windows. I'm sure there's gotta be a way to use the X200 in Linux.

Slackware :: Recommend An Online Storage Service?

May 6, 2011

Can anybody recommend an online storage service that works with Linux and preferably Slackware? Free would be nice but a small monthly fee is ok too. I'm looking for an offsite storage to backup a small collection of files, mostly documents, maybe around 2Gb total and encryption would be probably required. Nightly transfers would come from a Slackware 12.2 file server, but I can upgrade it to current version if needed.

Slackware :: Connect USB Wireless Modem 13.1

Jul 2, 2010

I'm using a Verizon/Nortel USB760 wireless modem (worker just fine in 13.0, got problems in 13.1). Using KPPP, I connect to the service, waltz around reading mail, news and LQ then disconnect and close KPPP. I let it sit for any length of time then open KPPP, connect and it can see the modem, attempts to initialize it and it just sits there - I have to unplug the modem and reconnect it to get it going again. /var/log/messages doesn't give any hints (everything looks normal I think) and nothing else does either -- the indicate light on the modem stays green and all that. I've tried ejecting it (nope) and whatever else I can thing of (which ain't much) including reviewing Changes and Hints, READMEs and all.

Is there some setting I may have missed or a USB rule or do I need to poke the thing somehow to get it going? USB-Modeswitch automagically figures out what the device is and does its settings (so there's no "conf" file any more - unless I really missed something there).

Slackware :: DSL Modem Firmware Is Not Loaded After Kernel Upgrade

May 24, 2010

I have a zyxel dsl (usb) moden, which needs a firmware portion to work, called cxacru-fw.bin.

I have been using this modem using with at least two different slackware distributions, even when the atm drivers were not included in the kernel.

Presently I am using slackware 13.0, with the vmlinuz-huge-smp- kernel.

I downlowded the 2.6.34 kernel, because I need it for a new webcam, compiled and installed it, and oops! the modem does not work anymore.

I am pretty sure I have configured the kernel correctly; dmesg tells me the modem is recognized by the kernel, as it is with the previous one, but the firmware is not loaded, because the DSL led remains off.

I attach the kernel configuration lines:

I have tried forcing the kernel to load the firmware, using but it didn't work either.

Slackware :: Losing Hardware Clock Time While Using Wvdial On Usb Modem / Fix It?

Jul 21, 2011

Now that I'm able to connect to Internet via my MC760 wireless modem on /dev/ttyUSB0, I am losing time!
I have lost 5 minutes while online for 1/2 hr.
Yes ntpd is running. What is strange is that right now, I'm in town at coffee shop and using wireless. I'm not losing time at all. This isn't the first time I've noticed the loss of time. It's been happening every since I was able to connect with the usb modem. I just had to come to town and use wireless to see if the problem existed while on wireless (b43). While being connected via the MC760, I've also noticed that the cpu temp rises and the fan runs quite a bit more than when not connected via the MC760. Here is the top portion of output of "top" code...

Networking :: Can't Get Online In Anything But Gnome?

Aug 20, 2010

I am so frustrated. I've gone through at least 20 distros in the last couple of days trying to find one that I like and will actually let me go online. I'm kinda bored of Gnome and want to try KDE again, but Knetworkmanager and even WICD don't let me get online. They recognize my wifi dongle, see the available networks, log me into them, tell me I'm connected and getting a good signal, but then I can't even ping Google! No pages will load. I've stumbled around all the network-managing and configuration screens, but nothing has worked.

Look, I'm clearly not a techie. I'm a happy end-user who's been exclusive with Mint for the last 2 years (PCLOS for a year before that) and I've never had to configure squat in either one of them, because they work perfectly out of the box. I'm not opposed to punching stuff into a terminal if it comes down to that, but I'd rather not have to...

Anyway, what can I do to fix this? (My wifi dongle works fine. I just tried it in Mint again.) For the record, the top three distros I'm considering are Sidux, Sabayon K and OpenSuse. I'm not getting internet on those. Ah, and the Mint KDE edition either.

My only way to connect to the internet is via my internal Dell UMTS modem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Get Online With Dial-up

Jan 9, 2010

I'm having trouble getting online, and therefore getting software, codecs etc, (I'm using another computer for this post) because the only option I have to connect to the web is through 56k dial-up modem, and this is apparently akward with ubuntu. I'm currently trying to work out how to get Ubuntu to recognize my modem. I have over-written Vista, which was previously on my laptop, although I did make recovery discs (though I really don't want to have to use them).

This is making it difficult for me to even find the model of my modem (it would involve reinstalling Vista and checking for the device under device manager, or Vista equivalent).I was advised to download the "Official Ubuntu documentation", and that this had a 'how to' section regarding dial-up modems. I downloaded it and searched it and found nothing as such. I also have downloaded the Ubuntu pocket guide and found nothing on the topic in it either.I can get online (via dial-up) on my XP machine, and also have USB storage sticks.

Ubuntu Networking :: Upgraded To 9.10, Now Can't Get Online?

Mar 8, 2010

A couple of weeks ago I connected my desktop to the internet and upgraded Ubuntu. I haven't used it since then, until today, when I took the ethernet cord out of my laptop and stuck in in the desktop. The light next to the place you plug the cord in came on and Ubuntu tried to connect, but eventually it just said "You are now disconnected." I restarted and it continued to do this. I plugged the ethernet cord into the laptop and now I am online. What is going on here??

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Impossible To Get Online

Jul 11, 2010

After installing 10.04 netbook remix on my acer aspire one, I have experienced all sorts of trouble. I can't get online, not with the wireless network, or with a usb-cable directly from the router. When I try to install the hardware drivers i get a message: there are no hardware drivers installed or something like that. There are no other OS on the harddrive, just 10.04 netbook remix. Another problem is the startup. Sometimes it boots right away, other times I've have to restart/reboot. 3-4 times before it works. How comes? Is there any way to download the missing packages/firmware to a usb-stick and then install it on the the netbook?

Ubuntu Networking :: Script To Mount Share Only If Online?

I'm trying to make this script that can check if the computer is online using

ping -c2 $HOST | grep 'received' | awk -F',' '{ print $2}' | awk '{ print $1}'
and then run

gvfs-mount smb://address

to mount the share. The idea is to have it check every five seconds or something until it finds the connection. writing the script because I don't really know about programming.

Ubuntu Networking :: Online Backup Via Proxy Server?

Jun 6, 2010

Some time ago, while I was still using Ubuntu 8.10 I began accessing Internet through a proxy server. Even though I had set my system proxy settings - including authentication - to pass the proxy, my online backup service (Jungle Disk) stopped connecting. I finally figured out that I had to include proxy port in the Jungle Disk Desktop tool's configuration (like this: That worked fine until I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 - with the identical proxy setup. This time I can't get any connection at all. Here's the Jungle Disk report:

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired Network Active But Cant Connect Online?

Yesterday I moved my modem (wireless) to my living room so the PS3 detected a better signal. In doing so, I had to run a new ethernet cable from my living room where the modem is into my office where the computer is. I use ubuntu 9.10

For some reason I cannot connect to the internet now. When I scroll over the connection, it says wire connection 1 is active. I have my settings manually set. I did notice the MAC address field is blank...

I didn't have an issue before, but with changing cables and whatnot, something got messed up somehow.
