OpenSUSE Wireless :: Automatically Connecting To Network?
Apr 9, 2011
Just moved over to openSUSE 11.4 (KDE) from Ubuntu, yesterday. However, I'm having some trouble with my wireless connection.
I have a wireless network with a hidden SSID and WPA2-PSK security. I entered all the nescery information into the KDE network manager, but it couldn't find my network. So I ran the usual command:
su -c iwlist wlan0 scanning essid [My SSID]
At which point, the network manager immediately found, and connected to, the network. However, it seems that I have to run this command (as root) each time I log in, before my laptop will connect to the network. The network manager has no problem find the plethora of unsecured networks as well as those that are secure, but broadcast their SSID.
I'm having some trouble connecting to the wireless network here at home. The PC has a Linksys WMP600N wireless network card, which works fine under several versions of Windows. In Opensuse however, I cannot get it to find the network. Even though my laptop is right next to it, which has perfect connection to the network. The router is a Linksys WRT610N.
I've tried running iwconfig and iwlist scan in the terminal, but the scan returns no results and iwconfig indicates it does not have a connection to a network. I've turned off IPv6 as I read this can sometimes cause issues. I've also tried issuing the computer a static IP address, figuring the DHCP might be causing problems, but all to no avail.
since a few weeks I have a problem connecting to other hosts when I'm using another wireless network, which has a different DNS IP than I have in my network. I have to change /etc/resolv.conf to change the nameserver. Can NetworkManager control the nameserver? If yes, how?
I clicked "Network Settings", and I found that the ip address was wrong, which is "192.168.1.10/24", and netmask field is empty, so I modifed the configuration file located in /etc/sysconfig/network, named ifcfg-wlan0, added one line(NETMASK= '255.255.255.0'), saved it and reboot the system. After rebooting the system, I still found the ip address is wrong and netmask field is empty, so I have to use ifup command to activate my card manually every time the system starts.
I just bought a new USB wireless adapter for my openSUSE 11.3 laptop, a TP-Link TP-WN727N. I can't get the new card to connect to my home wireless network, which is named WRT320N in the screenshot. KDE prompts for the key repeatedly but never connects successfully. Part of the problem might stem from the fact that this laptop now has 2 wireless cards: one build into chipset (PRO/Wireless 3945ABG) and the new USB card. Both show up in knetworkmanager but no clear distinction is made between them visually. Strangely my wireless network shows up twice in knetworkmanager as in the screenshot. Once per wireless card? As my wireless network is N-only I don't see why it would do this.
I've spent 29 hours trying to figure this out. And I'm about to blow my brains out. Fresh install 11.2. - 64bit but tried 32 bit and same thing. Dell studio 1734. Broadcom wireless and wired. Installed broadcom drivers (b43) through yast. Wired eth0 works. Wireless eth1 works. Surf with Firefox fine. BUT. Kmail will not connect through wireless. Nor can I access repositories through wireless.
Tried blacklisting B43 in ssb no change. What in the hell is going on? I've searched forum after forum and tried everything and CANNOT make this happen.
I am regular user of windows, but one week ago I installed ubuntu, it was very cool and then I installed opensuse yesterday because I like its kde desktop. But i have problem with wireless, i can see my home wifi, but it doesnt connect. I have same problem in ubuntu, but it was solved when i change passphrase to 40/128 bt from 128 bt, but in opensuse, all i can see is 128 bt or 64/128 ascii. Also I m unable to play mp3 songs in opensuse.
I've just installed openSUSE 11.3 for the first time on a Dell E1505 notebook and am having problems connecting to my home wireless network. Using the Network Manager I've been able to find my home network and connect after entering the network password. After a minute or two the wireless network is still shown as active but their is no connection (websites will not load).
I'm completely new to Linux so I have almost no clue what could be causing this. I have tried connecting the notebook hardwired (Ethernet) to the router and get a perfect connection if that information helps any.
After installing 9.10 (clean install of the OS), each time I restart my laptop I have to "OK" the wireless connection prompt in order for it to activate. The prompt that appears is the 'wireless security' tab of the 'network connection' window--with EVERYTHING filled in as it should be.YES, I DEFINITELY have "connect automatically" checked.
I am having some trouble getting my computer to connect to my wireless network. There is a wireless icon in the system tray. When I click on the icon I get a list of SSIDs associated with available wireless networks. To connect to one of of those networks I move the cursor over the SSID, the SSID is then highlighted, I select the highlighted SSID, then my computer connects to the selected network.
Sometimes the SSID associated wth my wireless network does not show up on the list. Sometimes it does. Normally the SSIDs on the list are in bold lettering. When the SSID of my network does appear it is in shaded lettering. When I move the cursor over the SSID it is not highlighted and I cannot select it. So you see it is not possible for me to select the SSID of my network and connect to my network.
The computer I am running is a ThinkPad R40. This is the wireless controller on the computer. I got this with "lspci". 02:02.0 Network controller: AIRONET Wireless Communications Cisco Aironet Wireless 802.11b
I would share my long awaited success with connecting my ubuntu laptop up to my universities (University of Western Sydney) wireless network. The rumors appeared true and they have finally implemented 802.11x authentication instead of that horrible java app netdirect. I am sure you've been cursing at its erratic stability. There is no linux documentation for airUWS-Lite nor anything more imformative than there windows/mac point and click steps found at [URL]. However with a few simple clicks you can have stable working connection.
When connecting make sure you have theses settings. Security: WPA & WPA2 Enterprise Authentication: Protected EAP (PEAP) #This is the settings that does not present itself correctly Anonymous Identity: leave blank PEAP Version: Automatic Inner Authentication: MSCHAPv2 Username: <YOUR 8 DIGIT STUDENT NUMBER> Password: your regular password
I have a fairly new install of 10.04 on a Dell laptop (about a week). Everything was running well, connecting wirelessly to the interneet through my home router (WPA/WPA2). Today, for some reason, I lost my connection to the internet. The network manager tells me I'm connected to my router, but all the lines on the wifi indicator are gray and there is no internet access. I reinstalled the 2 sets of packets for my BCN4312 (bcmwl-kernel-source and b43-fwcutter ), but no change.
I run Ubuntu, and it has a nice GUI widget thing that connects me to my home wireless network when I boot. I don't have a problem with that. But suppose I don't start X, and boot to a recovery console for some reason, like I did recently when my graphics were broken after installing Karmic. In that case, my computer won't be connected to the wireless network until I log into X normally. So I can't apt-get anything or anything. It's very annoying. And I don't know how to connect to my wireless network.
I know my wireless network SSID, and I know my WEP key or WPA passphrase. How can I log onto the network with commandline tools? Is there some basic program that I can just run "networkmanager <myssid> <mywepkey>"? I looked at the iwconfig man page and I honestly couldn't figure out how to simply connect to my network. Once I figure out how to connect to the network with command-line tools, where can I put an "autoconnect" script so that it will connect during startup, like it should anyway?
What I don't understand is, why the Ubuntu network manager nm-applet, doesn't just work as a front-end for more basic networking stuff. I don't see any reason why it should require you to start X before working; it could be a daemon that runs at startup, and there could be a config-file somewhere, but it doesn't even start running until I log onto gnome.
I'm using three different UNIX OS's.I have used gnome on my laptop for most of the time I have had it and I decided it was time for a change in GUI,I am wanting to use KDE but I can't get it to work with my laptop I have tried mandriva 2010.1 spring and that one was slow and it kept dropping my wireless connection.So I got rid of that in tried Kubuntu and now it will not use the wireless.Ubuntu and Ubuntu SE and the live version of super gamer can all connect it's just Kubuntu and mandriva
I recently downloaded and installed CentOS 5.3 DVD media.The media check passed. I proceed to install the operating system sucessfully. After installation, all my hardware is recognized, when compared to CentOS 5.2. Anyway, when I attempt to connect to my wireless network that uses either WEP/WPA/WPA2-- I get an error message that I cannot recall (it basically only came up when I entered the key) However, I can connect to my wireless network when it is unencrypted and no open/shared key is needed.I would like to be able to connect to my wireless network when
FYI: I am using a RealTek RTL8185 Wireless Driver.Also, I use CentOS as a workstation.
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.
I'm having problems with my wireless card. The network manager won't allow me to turn it on. It is working in windows and in ubuntu, but I can't get it to turn on under fedora. I'm using a Lenovo B570 laptop and it uses the Centrino Wireless-N 1000 for wireless.
I seem to be have issues periodically connecting to wireless networks with WPA. It'll work one minute, and then I switch my macbook back on after a period and it refuses to connect again. It's happened on and off on three different networks now.

I noticed that it takes a couple more seconds before Ubuntu connects to my wireless network when it wakes up from sleep. I didn't have this annoyance when I was using 10.04, and only appeared when I upgraded to 10.10. It takes about 5-7 seconds before it indicates that it's connecting. When I was using 10.04, it only took a maximum of 2 seconds for it to indicate that it's in the process of connecting to my network.
i just installed Ubuntu 11.04 64bit on my desktop. i have a TP Link TL-WN321G (Ver 4.0) wireless usb adapter to connect to my wireless network (i used to use it with Windows XP).As expected (i'd read up a bit before installing Ubuntu), the adapter was autodetected - i could see my wireless network listed in the networks list dropdown, and lsusb showed it too.lsusb identifies "Bus 002 Device 002: ID 148f:2070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2070 Wireless Adapter"But i cannot connect to the network. When i select my network, it keeps trying to connect, but never succeeds in connecting.
i tried going through the forums for possible solutions, but most of them deal with how to get it working when the adapter is not detected, or when networks are not shown. Or they are for older Ubuntu versions.i use the same wireless network on my laptop (Ubuntu 9.04), and it has a WPA & WPA2 Personal security, with a password, which i've configured in the desktop as well.
I have a wireless router, but my desktop computer is connecting to it, or maybe to the modem, by an Ethernet cable. It has a built-in wireless card, so just as an experiment, I tried to connect to my network wirelessly. It didn't work. And not only did I not get any internet connection, I can't get any internet through the wired connection either. The internet works fine with Windows Vista (I'm dual-booting), as well as when I boot up Backtrack off of a Live DVD. I can still access my router's config page by going to 192.168.2.1 on a web browser, but I can't access anything else.
