OpenSUSE Wireless :: UMTSMON For 3G Optus HUAWEI-UMTSMON App Doesn't Start When Click On It
Aug 24, 2010
I need a hand. I'm wanting to use mobile Internet but the UMTSMON program just simply doesn't seem to load, I click on it but nothing happens. I have re-installed several times, still doesn't start up.
this morning I got a bad surprise: Firefox doesn't start upon my click on its icon. Tried to uninstall and reinstall Firefox.... Even its icon disappeared from menus after reinstallation (no way to see it in the menu editor). I tried to start it from command line:
code firefox %u and got this reply from Ubuntu: GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times
I am using Chrome now but I had some useful add-ons on Firefox and wouldn't like to loose them...
I have a weird problem on my laptop. Everything works okey on PC though.
I'm using kNetworkManager on my OpenSuse 11.2 on PC.
Everything works fine there with the following settings: 1. Make a new GSM Connection in kNetworkManager and enter settings there 2. Edit etc/sysconfig/network/config file and set .....DNS_Policy from "auto" to "" 3. Enter openDNS to /etc/resolv.conf (nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)
It works like that on my PC.
I did the same on my laptop. The modem connects fine, but the DNS'es ain't resolved. So skype etc will work, but no pages will open in Firefox for example.
What else should I need to do to make this work?
It's weird it works the SAME way on my PC, but doesn't on my laptop.
I have opensuse 11.1 Gnome on Lenovo S10e. I'm wanting to establish a mobile internet connection. I have tried so far...*UMTSMON but when I click on it nothing happens. I have reinstalled the program several times to no avail. *WINE to run the Optus program, however the program doesn't find the HUAWEI USB stick & *Via a Bluetooth connection (use mobile phone as a modem) didn't work either Anyhow, I have tried these and some other ways to get mobile to no avail.
Also, have gone to network connections-mobile broadband-add-configure it- but what am I forgetting to do? Need a path I can take to get mobile internet working. (I even have a direct SIM card slot in this laptop
I am trying to use the HUAWEI E1756C USB stick to connect to the internet. Installing usb_modeswitch and usb_modeswitch-data allowed networkmanager to "recognize" the stick and set up a mobile broadband connection.
The result is that NM succeeded in connecting (one of every five attempts) but firefox does not surf, nor emails can be downloaded etc. Just like if not being connected. The USB modem shows the steady blue LED as connected.
A NM issue? I have tried disabling NM control and tried with PPP clients like NMTSMON, wvdial and even Sakis3g. All with the same results. They seem to connect and show flux up and downloaded but no surfing.
resolf.conf shows is pretty much empty and no DNS there.
The working settings in Window$ are:
Same settings with Sakis3G, or NMTSMON or NM result in connection with no action from applications that use the internet.
I have had a similar issue with WLAN each time I change to a different network. I solve that by forcing to update the DHCP. I mean using -su dhcpd wlan0
But attempts like dhcpcd ttyUSB0 or dhcpcd ttyS0 get the same result. So no idea if this is an DHCP, or DNS or another issue.
My box is an ASUS EEEPC 2005H netbook with OpenSuSE 11.2 and KDE
I have just installed openSuse 11.4 KDE 64-bit on a Dell M1330. When I click on my networking panel, it says WLAN interface is unavailable. I've followed the steps in the stickied post and found the WLAN hardware info, a screenshot of which is below:Uploaded with ImageShack.usNext it says to do this - you need to look at the logs, in particular the info in /var/log/boot.msg. To see this, you need YaST => Miscellaneous => System Logs and select boot.msg.In YaST there is no such option for system logs under miscellaneous, so I can't do that. The results of the sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan command produce the following:
root's password: lo Interface doesn't support scanning. eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.
On google there is no information. Opensuse does not know anything about this chip. On that stick is a driver for Win 7 64 and a linux driver for debian. I shall " dial up" with an analog modem to get into the internet. All at the console over ppp and comands like pon and poff. there is no networkmanager. The web `n walk stick and its label is Fusion II. Perhaps anybody has similar problems.
Sorry for repeating the same old complaint but there doesn't seem to be a common fix: Wireless does not work on my Presario R3000 although SUSE 11.x lists the hardware in the Hardware Information list and the hardware is turned on. Network Manager doesn't display any wireless networks in SUSE while Win 7 can see 4 of them on the same machine. Ubuntu has no problem either
I have an Acer Aspire One A110. I was running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope until March 2010 and then upgraded to UNR 9.10 Karmic Koala. I've been using 3G wireless internet, here in Australia, first with Dodo and now with Optus. Dodo setup Dodo uses the Optus network. The modem I have used is a Huawei E169E HSDPA USB Stick (aka "dongle").
For a contract plan, my settings are: Number: *99# APN: dodolns1 Authentication: CHAP DNS servers: 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 All other settings are default and/or blank.
Optus setup (prepaid) The modem I now use is a Huawei E160E. For a prepaid plan, my settings are: Number: *99# APN: preconnect Authentication: EAP, CHAP, MSCHAPv2 (it's working like this) DNS servers: 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 All other settings are default and/or blank.
I have installed UNR 9.10 (fresh install) and then setup my wireless fraudband as follows: Plug in dongle (some say that it needs to be plugged in when you boot). Open SystemNetwork Connections. Select Mobile Broadband tab, Add new connection. Select Optus and then review and change the settings as required. Click the network connections launcher at the top of the screen and select Optus to connect.
The most frequent problem I have experienced is DNS servers. I can connect to the wireless network but no pages would load. The Automatic PPP IPv4 setting rarely works for me and I prefer to set the DNS servers manually: Dodo 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11 Optus 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 (maybe out of date?) Google 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 (works for any internet service provider)
More tips: For a better signal and more stable connection (but not necessarily faster), I use a 5 metre USB extension and hang the dongle in a window facing the Optus tower (basic extension will do, you don't need the fancy one with a repeater). Sometimes, the modem is not recognized when plugged in (not in the Network Connections) launcher. Be patient, wait a bit, then unplug it and try again. It should be OK the second time.
I installed opensuse 11.3 succesfully on my acer aspire 5670 (5672) laptop. Everything works except wireless connection. Looking for a solution is follewed the " My wireless doesn't work - a primer on what I should do next" guide on this forum. These are the results i become: (2) Determine what device you have.: 03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)
I am using an HP G60 laptop with a built in wireless NIC but am unable to get the wireless connection working. I have followed the advice in the sticky messages above and have included the information below. I know the wireless modem is working as I have got a spare USB wireless dongle running on the desktop (ironically - I can only get it working where it is not needed!!!). The same dongle will not work on the laptop. So it is a config thing and not a hardware issue On a trivial level, left clicking on the Network Manager icon shows the "enable wireless" greyed out. Desktop and laptop are running SuSE 11.3 and KDE4.4.4. I have tried the traditional method as well as knetwork manager and have no success with either. Here are the technical details.

I just installed openSUSE 11.4 and after the installation of VirtualBox I coudn't start it. The icon at the cursor kept jumping but no response. I tried to run the binary from Konsole and I got the following message:VirtualBox: supR3HardenedVerifyFileInternal: Failed to open "/usr/lib/virtualbox/VMMR0.r0": No such file or directory (2)I checked YaST to see which packages were installed:

I have just done a fresh network install on SUSE on a new HP Proliant ML115 server. The install seemed to go OK, but on rebooting after the install I get a shell logon/prompt -- no GUI. Have tried reinstalling with the same result. If I try to run startkde I get a message that says "$DISPLAY is not set or cannot connect to the X server."
