OpenSUSE Network :: Cannot Start Network Manager - To Configure My Wlan ?
Nov 27, 2010
I have just installed opensuse 11.3. I am absolutely new for Linux and for this forum. I have tried to open Network manager to configure my wlan. But its not starting. How to start network manager and configuring my wlan.
Im new in this world of linux and suse. I have just installed the opensuse 11.2 in a Dell Inspiron 5160. Such laptop has a BCM4306 Wireless LAN controller. When I tried to configure a wlan connection, I found that the firmware was not installed. After looking in different forums, I installed the firmware b43. Now, my wlan card is abled to find the wireless of my router.
I have tried to configure a connection with YAST as well as with Network Manager, but both cases failled. Specifically, when I use Network manager, Im able to see in the applet my connection, how strong is the signal, but I see a yellow symbol (in one forum, such a box is shown with a green symbol).
I have check many time all about the secutity, encryption, and so one and all seems to be correct. But when I open the mozila firefox or the konqueror browser, no chance to surffer in internet. Now Im just a step to become crazy. The drivers are ok, the information about the router and the keys are ok, but in such a way, I am still harmloss.
I am using an Acer Aspire 5536 AMD dual core laptop with a 64bit installation of Susie 11.4. Using 11.2 I had no problems connecting to the wireless router. As soon as 11.4 was installed, clean install, and the laptop rebooted, network manager failed to start, until manually invoked and then enabling networking through the system tray. Even after this it will not connect to a wired or wireless network sometimes for more than 30 minutes.
I have searched around a bit for a knetwork manager issue I am having on my opensuse 11.2 32 bit install. My wireless card is an 04:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01) I am currently using the Broadcom wl driver
I am on the Internet with this machine as I am typing using the older "ifup" method. I am having great difficulty connecting to the Internet when I use knetwork manger though. The strange part is when I am connected to my router with knetwork manager, I can log into my Router, but I can not get to any web-page/ping any outside address.
so far the best (I was able to locate) advice I was able to get is located in this post. < Broadcom wireless, partchy internet - openSUSE Forums > following a posted how to to disable IPV6 (I suspect this may be the issue??), I was unable to locate modprobe.conf, or modprobe.conf.local, even after I updated via updatdb. I gave a shot at entering in "disable_ipv6=1" into "menu.lst". However, this did not solve my issue with knetwork manager. If my network information is needed when I am "connected" utilizing knetwork manager
Am all of 2 days old on Opensuse 11.0 having just installed it on my old PC. All my experience has been with XP/Vista and Macs and it took some courage to finally try this out. My Belkin F5D9050 wireless(g+ MIMO) usb network card is recognised in yast but does not connect to the internet. On reading through forums I understand that this adaptor uses RAlinks RT73 chipset and support for should already be available in the OS. Is this correct ? If not, where do I get the driver for this and how do I install this. As per the Belkin site, Opensuse driver support isnt listed. Am struggling due to the unfamiliar environment and am not aware of terminal commands.
There is no wlan0 interface when trying to run FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick N 2.4 on OpenSuSE 11.2, though it works fine on Fedora 11 and Mandriva Spring 2009.1. All 64bit. Contrary to Fedora and Mandriva, there is no need to compile the compat-wireless module ar9170usb for OpenSuSE 11.2 because the kernel is very recent and includes this driver. Kernel: 22.214.171.124-0.1-desktop The /var/log/messages gives this after I put the stick in the PC. At first it is seen as a mass storage device:

Since a recent update on Stretch, I have been unable to use the network-manager to connect to my home wireless network on my laptop. It was working fine before. I did not change any settings on the WLAN router. I can still connect to other wireless networks at work and university, just not this particular one at home. All other non-Debian devices in my household are still able to connect just fine.While figuring this out, I have tried connecting manualy with ifup but I don't really know how that works. Right now there is only the loopback entry in /etc/network/interfaces.
Below is the output of syslog, when gnomes network-manager is trying to connect, but fails. Code: Select allJul 19 20:01:57 debian NetworkManager: <info> (wlan0): Activation: starting connection 'Affenbande' Jul 19 20:01:57 debian NetworkManager: <info> (wlan0): Activation: Stage 1 of 5 (Device Prepare) scheduled...

I having problem after doing update today using zypper up.I get this error when I try start knetwork "knetwork manager cannot start due to misconfigured. system dbus policy does not allow it to provide user settings".
Recently I purchased a new laptop and installed openSUSE 11.3 x64 Gnome. I was running openSUSE 11.2 x86 Gnome on my previous laptop. Most things are working well, although still tweaking things here and there.
The biggest issue at the moment is starting the network. When I boot the system it loads into desktop (gnome) no problem, but then takes between 3 - 5 minutes to come up asking for Default Keyring Password before it will launch network manager. Everything else has loaded and it running fine except the network.
The first time I launched the system (after install) it worked perfectly, however soon as a set the password for the Default Key this started happening. The time delay before it launches does vary each time but always around 3 minute mark.
I'm going to come right out and say I am a complete novice with Linux/SUSE. The equipment I'm having a problem with is a little web-server that was purchased by my employer that has, quite suddenly, stopped functioning. I was changing the IP address within YaST, at which point the device offered to update itself, which I saw no harm in. Post-update, however, I was unable to so much as ping the device.
I tried "ifconfig eth0": "Error fetching interface information: Device not found." I went into network settings via YaST and found that there are two cards now listed as: RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller Both IP addresses are "Not configured". The information pane, for both cards, cites:
RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controllerBusID : 0000:02:00.0 Unable to configure the network card because the kernel device (eth0, wlan0) is not present. This is mostly caused by missing firmware (for wlan devices). See dmesg output for details. The only difference in either of the cards is the BusID (0000:02:00.0 and 0000:03.00.0)
I can neither edit nor delete either of these cards. As I mentioned, I am a total Linux novice, and am at a total loss for what to do next, or even how to find critical information about the system itself. I know enough to check dmesg, but not enough to have any clue what to look for in the output.
I've not found how to configure more than one ip address with network manager.Nor with kde nor with plasmoid network manager.I need several virtual ip addresses for eth0 when the "default" of eth0 is connected i.e. "Connected to Auto eth0" should initialize the virtual interfaces.I have not found no even how to configure the ip address.I think this will be used from ifup config in yast or not?There I have the virtual interfaces but they are not taken from network manager.And last but no least: Is it possible that when using network manager the eth0 is enabled even no user has logged in?
I tried to install suse 11.4 on the new gnome desktop 3. everything seems to work except the network manager. Is not present in the bar and I can not restore it. tried to reinstall network manager but to no avail.Does anyone know how I could solve this problem
I recently installed OpenSUSE 11.2 and everything works fine except wi-fi card, of course. The problem is that after installation the system recognized the card (is was listed in network devices in Yast) but I was unable to enable it through network-manager applet. Though the device could make scanning through terminal (found article in docs but didn't fully understand wpa_gui). Then i was stupid enough to delete the device from Yast list to try to reinstall it. So the problem is that i simply can't do this cause i see no way to re-detect. That is the goal is to at least turn back to post-install system state and try to enable wifi card again.
When I attempt to connect to a wireless network, the network manager asks me for the network's password, then says 'setting network address' for 20 or so seconds, then asks me for some random Hex or ASCII key in the same type of window I put the password in (Secrets for Noel -- KDE Daemon). Since a key is already typed into the window, I press OK, which then causes the network manager to go back to 'setting network address', then the window pops up again and keeps repeating itself.
I'm running Opensuse 11.4 with KDE, and my driver is ath9k. I don't know much about linux so please don't tell me to 'recompile this' or 'change this setting' without explaining how to do it. Please help, I've been unable to connect to wireless in OpenSUSE for 2 weeks now.
I m nokia mobile to connect to internet in 11.2 configured it all in n/w manager with phone number *99#
APN: XYUX(as given by provider)
Also wrote the dns in resolv.conf but all in vain . it is not connecting neither dialing any number just shows "activating" but with no progress earlier in 11.1 i used kinternet (but i couldn't find it here) is there not any other dialer ? as i ve heard that n/w manager is quite troublesome.
All settings are correct as far as i can tell. The wep key works on all my windows boxes. When i have connect automatically enabled it never tries to connect. if I go to edit it it pops kde wallet up i put in credentials. wallet goes away then nothing happens. if i double click connection to my router also nothing happens. I have the wep key in there and i even made it visible to make sure.
I mistakenly delete my default panel. How to add the network notifier? Tried to look for the widget but nothing? i need to choose my network connections. And when i look at the Network manager my wireless if black ? It means it didn't detected my wireless?

I want to use my laptop to share network for VoIP adapter. I'm using mobile stick as well as wi-fi and Network manager under Gnome 3. Voip adapter asks for address via DHCP to gain the access to the server some where in the other side of the world.
I'm putting a opensuse 11.4 64 bit KDE install on an HP -G62 laptop.
I also use an NFS network.
I want to use a wireless network.
The problem is that network manager keeps insisting on asking kwallet for permission to start up the network. As a consequence boot hangs because the nfs network can't find the files in /etc/fstab because the network can't start because you can't see kwallet until it finishes booting.
I have options set in networkmanager to store the password in connection secrets in secure storage, and it insists on asking kwallet!
I don't want to get rid of kwallet because it's very useful otherwise - just not at boot time?
The network manager will ask me for my security key and it will not accept it. Instead when I use the show password feature to see what I typed in was correct, it shows something completely different than what I typed. For instance if my Key was :when it pops up and ask to for me to retype it again it shows something completely different in hex. Is there anyway I can use a different network manager?
the thing is that I cant use Network Manager to connect to Internet, because it simply do not connect. The connection, although, awailable throught yast when i choose "traditional method with ifup", so everything is just fine, but if i need to reconnect, i have to reboot. How do I setup a !working! connection through Network Manager, or maybe i do not do something properly.
I'd like to have a set up where my Ethernet card has a static IP set up but my WiFi card doesn't.Currently I have a profile for this set up in Network Manager, however on boot up and every time I replug the cable Network Manager chooses the default "auto eth1" profile. I manually have tochoose my own profile for the Ethernet card every time. How can I make it default??I know the workaround would be to use ifup but then I lose the ability to quickly change access points for my WiFi card so that's not a solution for me
