I updated a firmware of my wifi router (small black box with antenna). The router is managed via web browser at address 192.168.1.100. I opened Mozilla Firefox connected to the router, but a 'home.asp' application - an interface one can to set up a configuration - running on the router didn't work properly. When I tried to change some settings, and eg. clicked a confirmation button nothing happened. I solved the problem staring Windows and making a connection using IE - this time that home.asp application did OK. The question is what may caused problems? A bug in this app or in general *.asp applications don't communicate well with browsers other than IE or simply they don't 'like' Linux?
I have a machine (lets called it machine 1) with two networks card, eth0 and eth1. Both have static IPs. Once in a while the machine refuses to give access to the Internet via Firefox (eth0 is the route to router). Other machines on the network have no problems accessing the Internet. Eventually the machine would just magically start working again, but this time it just seems to have stayed broken. I've done some simple diagnostics and found:
a) I have another machine running Apache with a Wiki on our network - [URL]. Machine 1 is unable to connect to this Wiki. I get 'the connection has timed out'. I can ping 192.168.1.73 and it responds in the usual fashion.
b) If I try to ping www.google.com it times out with: ping: unknown host www.google.com. I can ping google using its IP address.
c) On machine 1 I have tried traceroute on both www.google.com and its IP and I just get:
1 * * * 2 * * *
And so on until hop 30. Doing this on any other machine on the network works. So while it seems I can ping internally in our network and outside, but when it attempts anything traceroute or URL related it does not work.
I moved my server and network equipment, and now the wireless works but I cannot get my server online. I host a website, so this is kind of urgent.
I have a wireless router and can access the internet fine on my laptop. My server is wired & connected to the router. It sets up the networking properly.. ifconfig has an ip address, the default gateway is present. But I cannot ping google, or even the router. It says destination host unreachable.
So I go back to the laptop to check the router settings.. sometimes it likes to assign the server the wrong internal ip. But, I can't access the router settings either! The page (192.168.1.1) times out. Same with trying to ping the router. How can the laptop be online if it can't reach the router?
Oddly, ifconfig on my laptop reports an ip address starting with 99.233. It's always given me an internal address starting with 192.168. What's going on here? Is the router not allocating an internal ip? I use wicd to connect, if it's relevant.
We have a windows laptop that can only get a "local connection". Now it does sound like the router is forwarding directly to my laptop, instead of allocating internal ips.
i use slackware 13.1 i have apache, mysq, php - working i have a router netgear WPN824v2 - latest firmware port forwarding to my comp 192.168.1.105 port 22 i can access my ssh from my internel lan, but i cannot access it from the outside... i used [URL] to test the port and it says that is closed. i used PFportCheck Program on my other windows computer and it says that "port 22 is opened on another device!" - which is good because it's opened on this computer. also tried to changed the port on sshd_config to 6655 and 22 but it's still cannot connect...
recently I have bought a new wireless router and now I have problems connecting to some (secure) websites. I can't login to gmail and facebook while I am still able to connect to these sites using my old router. I have also tryed to connect to these sites using my new router on windows and it worked with no problem.It is really strange for me, although I don't know that much about networking. I am using Fedora 13 and a TP-Link (TD-W8901G) Wireless router and I have these problems using both wired, and wireless connections with this router.
I have a wireless network in my house through a Zyxel P-320W router, and I've noticing that the signal strength isn't very good in the basement. Now I have this old D-Link-624+ router lying around for a long time and I've been hoping to get it to work as an access point, that way I can move freely around the house without changing which router I'm connected to.
I have two laptops with me here at school, one bigger one [home computer], and one smaller one [netbook]. I take the smaller one with me to class and when I'm out and about, however, I keep all of my things on the bigger one. I would really like to be able to set up some sort of SSH port forwarding for the bigger machine so that, when I'm out and I realize I left file X on my home machine, or I want to listen to a certain song, or whatever, I can just scp it to the netbook. The issue is, at my dorm, I'm stuck behind a firewall and can't just set up a SSH daemon and port forward through the router, I need a more clever solution. I do have a home server (not with me at school), which I commonly use for transferring files. Basically, I'm wondering if there is some way I can SSH into my server box, with reverse port forwarding so that, when I am out and about, I can just log into my server and copy files from my home computer for use on my netbook. I've tried a couple of solutions which come up from google "reverse ssh" but haven't been able to get them to work. A step by step guide to doing this would be great. Again, the setup is:
Home server [ssh-able] Home Computer [behind firewall, can't ssh into at the moment] Netbook 
Want to be able to SSH from Netbook to Home computer, probably using Home server.
How can I give an application group permissions?There is a bug in the latest version of Ubuntu's Dovecot, where it is not apart of mail group, so it does not have write permission to the /var/mail directory by default. So I have to give it mail group permissions.
I'm sure that some of us techies have found the need from time to time to have a portable wireless bridge (see ascii art below) on our jaunts into the big bad user-woods, and I am here to ask the question of HOW to pull this off, with the least installation/configuration possible, as my tech lappy is also my main computer. What I want to do is this:
Code: (ISP) -> (wlan0 - [MyLappy] - eth0) -> (Client computer) Basically, thats a mess, so i'll explain it further: wlan0 grabs the netz, and a computer connected to eth0 via switch/router/crossover cable can access those netz.
1. No configuration on the client would be prime choice rib for me.
2. Client should be any OS/Arch.
Any grand ideas out there? Currently using FC10, with various extra repos enabled.
Oh, and N00by alert, I'm learning quick, and am not shy to try new/complicated things, just bear with me!
I've installed ubuntu 9.10 64bit onto a usb flash drive and found that even though I can connect to my safecom adsl modem/router I can't get an internet connection, the previous versions work and it works with a Linksys router. Is this a known issue with a fix?
the router is TP-Link TL-WR340G. When I got it I entered the menu and configured everything without problems. Some time ago I had to reinstall ubuntu and after that I couldn't access the router. I tried to reset it, i tried switching the wifi on and off. I connect the router and the pc with the network cable, i type 192.168.1.1 in firefox and it says: can't access site. I plug the internet cable in the modem - its the same and I dont have internet at all.
I have a dual-boot desktop with Windows 7 and Ubuntu.Problem: Linux does not recognize my D-Link DWA-131 Wireless N USB Adapter. So, I can't access my wireless router or the internet.D-Link has a Linux driver for the DWA-131 posted on their website URL...that includes a readme file with long, strange, convoluted instructions on how to install the driver.
I am looking for a solution for our LAN traffic monitoring and would like to use some opensource linux application. I have a linux box with two NIC cards and what I thought is the following: Our setup is as follows. Internet comes in through the router and into the firewall. From the firewall it goes into our switch and distributed among the workstations. I have no access to the router or the firewall as they are centrally configured. I would like to place a device into the loop through which I could monitor the LAN traffic.
Can I put a linux box between the firewall and the switch and have all packets going through registered and logged? I have a proxy server (non transparent) and that captures some but not all. I would like to get all packets registered without interfering with the LAN etc.
I have a web application which calls scripts on the linux box it's deployed on. Currently, there are some file permission issues which prevent the scripts from running properly. How can I give my web application the needed permissions? I thought of creating a user 'group' , assigning my web app to that group, and changing the ownership of the script files to the new group. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble with the following: What user id does my web app have? If my web app does not have an user id,
I changed to a 4 port ethernet router (D-Link DSL-2542B Adsl2+)with intention to share Internet access with my brother (he's on Vista).Initially it all went well,but 3 days ago there were connection problems occured on the part of the ISP. Without realized the problem,I had reset the router.This morning I've been informed by the ISP that the connection has been re-established.So,I accessed the Internet via the 4 port router but failed to do so (server not found).Suspecting that the problem was from the 4 port router,I reverted to my old Adsl router (DSL-520B single port) and without any problem I managed to access the Internet back.I really need help to configure back the 4 port ethernet router to its initial state.
I have a newer Belkin N+ router that has a USB port for accessing an external hard drive.I can access the HD with no problem in Windows.I am new to Linux/Ubuntu and cant seem to connect to the HD. In "Network" I have a folder "Windows Share" and within that folder is where I see the HD "CBHD" (name of my drive). I cant click it because when I do, i get an error message along the lines of (cant remember exactly right now) "Failed to mound"I typically access the drive in Windows via : \192.168.2.1
I have an Apple Airport Extreme dual band router, with a 2T hard drive plugged into the USB port, formatted with FAT32. Both Mac OSX and Windows 7 automatically see the drive and all the files on it, but unfortunately, I can't get Ubuntu to really see that drive. It sort of shows an icon under network, but if I try to open it, I don't see any files in it.
I have a very unaltered off the shelf installation of Ubuntu 10.10 on a Sony Vaio, some sort of AMD dual core vintage. I never thought that it would be Linux that failed to see the router drive, but unfortunately, that is what has happened.
At work, we (like almost everyone) are still full-on windows. I am currently trying to get away from windows because I am not a fan. my current windows machine (different from my Ubuntu machine) is accessing the wireless network fine, and there are no obvious problems there. Also, my Ubuntu machine can access my wireless network at home, so I know there are no driver issues. I set up the connection for the Ubuntu machine, and it seems to be connecting OK. I can ping internal IPs and by all statuses, the connection to the router is functioning. However, when I attempt to load a web page or ping a domain or external IP, it fails. I tried to ping the IP, thinking if that worked, it's probably the DNS, but pinging both domains or IPs fails. I have looked around at forums and posts, but none of them seem to match my issue (that's probably not true, but I am struggling to see the commonality).

I have a friend that recently moved to Linux. She had started out with Ubutnu 9.04, which was giving her a lot of Issues along with being no longer supported, so I recommend Linux Mint 10 to her, since she wanted something closer to Windows. I instructed her on how to do a clean install. Linux Mint installed ok, but when she was about to set up wireless to get on the Internet, she realised that she had forgotten her password. She called her network (Belkin) for assistance to retrieve it. She was told that Linux is not really supported; however they gave her this address to access the router: 188.8.131.52 from her browser which did not work. So there was nothing further they could have done since she couldn't gain access to the router. She is currently only able to use Ethernet connection to get online.
What could she do to reset her password or gain access to the router? I didn't want to tell her to reset the modem in case it will leave her with no internet and no way to setup her router.
Today I set my HPG50 with Ubuntu 10.10. I used network install disk, then tasksel to add Ubuntu Desktop. Everything was fine, I set up my samba shares and a few other things. I had the NM icon on the panel but did have to configure. I was on wired connection and I could surf no problem. When I went to set up the wireless, I noticed the icon was gone. I know it was there after the install. At some point the network manager icon disappeared, not sure when because I could still access the router and internet. I spent a few hours surfing google and the forums trying to find an answer. Then, after running update and upgrade I lost internet. Even though I could see the router, I connected straight to the modem, still no internet access. I unplugged the cable from that machine and plugged it into my other system and I could surf just fine.
It was clear that nm-applet was running from running nm-applet at the terminal - nm-applet - "An instance of nm-applet is already running - Warn Couldn't initialize the D-Bus manager. nm-tool - State - connected, Driver r8169, State Unmanaged, Default no. NetworkManager.State - All three entries are set to "true". It seems clear that some other app is managing my connection as I can access the router and am currently serving video to my apple tv from this system. How do I find which app is managing my connection?
I have an intranet server behind a NAT router. Very standard linksys router home setup. The server has a static IP. I used port forwarding in the router to use SSH and log into the server remotely - it works OK.
I want no one outside my home network to access any webpages on the server unless they're authenticated.. I know I could port forward like with ssh but with http port 80 and then see webpages , but again this would open it up to anyone with my cable modem's IP - wouldn't it?
I need a secure way like SSH that requires a password before anyone could access port 80 and http from the server from a remote network.
How do I do this? And on the local network people can get served pages normally as usual. Just remote would need authentication. Must be commonly done(?)
The garage in my house is a dead spot for my current wifi router.I can't get a signal there.Moving my router within the limits of my cabling doesn't fix it. But I have two other routers I'm no longer using.Is it possible to use one of them as a wireless access point to extend the range of my current router?If so, what is the general procedure for doing that? My main router is a Verizon Actiontec M424WR. My other unused routers are a D-Link and a Netgear, both of which have wireless capability. The Netgear had a superior range, as I recall.
