OpenSUSE Wireless :: Internet Connection Stops When Plug In Local Network?
Jul 25, 2011
I have a wireless cable modem/router and a PCI-E 1x wireless card in my desktop PC. It works perfectly until I connect my Ethernet cable to my local router and printer, no more internet connection. I am guessing there is a setting somewhere that tells the networking software that the hard wire connection is the primary internet gateway. How do I tell it to use the wireless as the primary gateway?
I've installed opensuse 11.2 on an old IBM thinkpad. The install went without a hitch and when I got to the desktop I inserted my Dlink DWL-G132 wireless USB adapter. Opensuse immediately recognised that a wireless device was attached and I could see my wireless network listed. I entered my WPA password and was able to connect to my routers configuration page by entering 192.168.0.1 in the URL bar of firefox. For some reason I am unable to navigate to any webpage. When I enter a URL firefox acts as though there is no internet connection. The only way I can get the internet on my laptop is to connect it to my router with a cable. I used a wired connection and ran the update utility thinking that perhaps an update would fix the issue but it did not. I know the adapter works because the laptop used to have windows xp installed and I could connect fine with that.
Does anyone here have any idea why I would be able to connect wirelessly to the routers configuration page but not to the internet? I appreciate any advice anyone may have.
I have just done a new install of the latest opensuse 32bit and for some reason I cannot connect to the internet, when I click on mange connections the vpn tag is highlighted and all the other tabs are grayed out and I cannot select them. So I can't setup a internet connection wired or wireless. I was just using Kubuntu and did not have this problem. My card is broadcom.
Its a case of ".... wireless network connection active but still not internet connection .."I am using WEP - 128 key ... Works when I connect directly using ethernet cable ... but not wireless (pci and wireless router)
I dual boot windows xp and ubuntu 10.04 LTS and the wireless card works perfectly fine in xp so I know its not a hardware/network issue. In ubuntu, it detects wireless networks, will connect to network and work for about 20 seconds.
and it continues on after this alternating between a normal 20ms and high ping over 200ms. The connection refuses to load anything off the internet/local network.
When downloading a torrent after a few minutes my connection speed stops. Browser also. Same problem with Ktorrent and Deluge. The only way to solve the problem is to reconnect to my WLAN. I use a TP Link WR841N wireless router and a Toshiba satellite pro. The same setup is OK with windows and ubuntu 11.04 alpha3.
I recently setup a new SUSE box for the purposes of acting as an ftp/sftp server. It's currently setup to run ProFTPD 1.3.3.rc3 and mod_sftp/0.9.7. The server has two internal network interfaces eth0 and eth1. eth0 is purely for internal use to accept ftp and ssh. eth1 is outward facing and receives connections from the WAN via SFTP over port 22. The problem I am facing is that after half hour to an hour eth1 stops accepting connections whenever there is no SSH connection present on eth0. I can't figure out why this is happening.
ProFTPD is setup as follows: SocketBindTight directive is on, default server and port are commented out.
When the external interface is unreachable the proftpd and proftpd-sftp logs show no record of any connection attempt. I have noticed however if I leave eth0 down eth1 stays contactable without problem. Can anyone give me some pointers on what I can check to find out why this may be happening.
OpenSuse 11.4 Asus Netbook 1000H Following other members in the forums I have installed Opensuse 11.4 on the Netbook. In the early days Ubuntu Netbook Remix worked well for me. But this has been discarded, and the "one size fits all" Ubuntu had become slow and cumbersome. So..... onto my post. Opensuse is working well. The install went beautifully.
It detected the Wireless Internet and I am able to get on line. I also need to share the Internet connection to a desktop. This is done via a small network switch. Thus far I cannot do this. I tried to use ifup to configure a static ip but this busted my Wireless configuration. I went back to knetwork manager. Then I tried to set up the wired network using knetwork manager and under IPV4 "share" the connection. But this blanks out any possiblity of a static address and substitutes dhcp. My desktop cannot ping the this dhcp address. Ubuntu had this thing called Firestarter? - from memory. This configured the system to sharing the network.
I am running opensuse with LAMP, and this is my first time setting up this type of server (usually am a windows junkie) My problem i am having is that I am unable to view my website from outside the local network. I have setup my router for a dynamic dns and forwarded all the ports through the router and the local firewall. I ran the apache setup through YAST2 and everything seems fine locally but when i attempt to access it elsewhere its not connecting. computechsolutions.dyndns.biz is the dynamic dns address i have setup through my router.
I'm new in SUSE 11.4. My problem is: I'm using Alfa AWUS036H card. It's recognised and I can establish connection to my network, but cant get to Internet. I can't surf the web cos Firefox tell me that connection is timed out. Now I'm confused why I can't surf the web even if I'm connected. Also, I trayed to instal linux drivers for this card folloving Ubuntu "how to" and it just dont work.
I m trying to get internet connection via wireless on Suse 11.4. Although ifstatus eth1 reports an IP address (and router reports a wireless connection) no Internet access is possible, which seems very strange (including the admin page of the router).
I own an ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC. It has an Atheros Communication, Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. 03:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01) 03:00.0 0280: 168c:002b (rev 01) I cannot see any SSIDs including my home Verizon FiOS 802.11 G WPA2-AES-TKIP encrypted network. I went to Starbucks to try to connect to their free Wi-Fi and I could not make a connection. How do I solve this problem so that I can connect to a SSID of my choice and make a wireless connection while using GNOME 3?
It is just 3 days that I am using Linux Opensuse 11.2. I got a problem with Internet connection: I have HUWAEI E1550 3G Modem, but I have no idea about using it on Linux OpenSuse 11.2. Now I use it Windows7, there is no problem, because there is a program and driver for modem.
I upgraded to openSUSE 11.4 from 11.3. Under 11.3 64 bits I had a wonderful wireless internet connection. Since the new installation, I do not succeed to get my computer on line. I'm glad that for the time being, I can use my Windows XP SP3 dual boot system.
Here are a few tests I ran :
Although I run this command as root, I get the message Encryption key : off
so, this seems to be ok.
But then I want to ping samba.org :
which gives this result :
What struck me is that apparently both drivers rt2500usb AND rt73usb are loaded. Is that necessary ? What struck me as well is that I can't get my encryption key when issueing the command iwconfig as root: it seems to be off ?
Then when I studied the hardware-info (via YAST), I got also this :
I have problem after install opensuse 11.2 on lenovo R61. I have no connection to internet, although on liveCD (opensuse 11.2) is internet connection functional. In ubuntu or opensuse 11.1 was all OK, connection was functional.- at DSL Configuration / Ethernet Card is Unknown device- in hardware is Card: 82566MC Gigabit Network Connection (eth0)- modprobe wl write it FATAL: Module wl not found.
I had work well with opensuse 11 and the internet also work well but when I turn off my computer and then use the XP and work with it. I find out the connection with the internet doesn't work in the opensuse 11. I made a repair and format to opensuse 11 but without any change the net still doesn't work.
CPU Pentium4 Motherboard Gigabyte intel 945 S-series Dial up connection I have no experience with opensuse.
I recently took a WIRED internet connection (from the people who provide cable TV) and switched from ubuntu to openSUSE11.2. . I am not able to set up an internet connection in openSUSE 11.2. I have been given a static IP, and the following info
subnet mask gateway dns server alternate dns server
how do i setup an internet connection with these in openSUSE 11.2.
Dell Precision Workstation running Suse 11.1 & KDE 3.5 as default O/S, with Suse 11.3 KDE4, Ubuntu 10.04 & Win XP Pro as secondary O/S's.Medion PC with Win XP Pro for those windows apps I have to use (against better judgement but because my clients require it!)
On Friday 6th I was having a play with Apache2 running on the Dell Precision on Suse 11.1. I have had a local development webserver for some time to test websites before uploading them a host server. I had wanted to test the DHCP & DNS functions for some time, and this seemed like a good opportunity. But I ran into some problems and decided to un-install the DHCP & DNS. I intended to install a VM and re-install the Apache server on it, to make it easier to troubleshoot.Unfortunately my internet connection on that box is now broken, but only with the Suse 11.1 install. The other 3 O/S's all work fine, and the rest of my machines are all good. In fact the Suse 11.1 install can communicate across the LAN, and print to both the network printers, it just won't connect to the Internet. Turning off the firewall doesn't do anything, and reconfiguring the NIC in YaST doesn't help.
I suspect that there is a config file somewhere with faulty info, but I can't find it. If searched everything that was changed on that date.I have been searching this forum, LinuxQuestions forums, and Googling for 2 days with no real success. I found some interesting threads which I thought would help but so far no luck. I can ping all the interfaces on my LAN, but anything outside is blocked. I thought it might be in the BT HomeHub but that works fine and all the boxes can connect except with the Precision running 11.1.
Version 11.2 worked all right. After installation of 11.3 the internet can no longer be reached. I formatted the system partition but not the home partition.Here is the shortened output of the script netinfo:
Code: Linux kernel: Linux 2.6.34-12-desktop x86_64 LSB Version:n/a
I installed 11.04 via live install, and was connected to my home network/Internet. After the install finished and I restarted my pc, my network was not available nor internet connection. In the network manager I cannot access the "wired network" tab.
I played with the Network Settings section in YaST, because I wanted to use the wireless network card I installed into the PCI port. OpenSUSE recognised the type of card and its MAC number, and told me that I needed to install a firmware (fwcutter something). I tried some changes on the cable internet connection (like activate on plugged) while I tried to change the wireless connection (like activate on boot).
What I have now is that my cable internet connection is not working at all (it was working just 3 days ago), my wireless internet connection is, as always, not working either. I managed to work the wireless card on Windows XP by finding its drivers.
Since the problem is with my office computer, I cannot answer the exact brand names of the ethernet card and wireless card. Shall I reinstall OpenSUSE 11.3 from the DVD I have?
Second problem: OpenSUSE does not recognise my external harddisk, it gives an error about mounting the device.
I have a pppoe dial-up ADSL internet connection and I've managed to set it up untill 11.4. Now, I've installed smpppd-1.60.46-2.1.x86_64.rpm and the dependencies. When I try to activate and check the work of smpppd, the following happens:
Code: linux-xjr1:~ # service smpppd start Starting SMPPPD done linux-xjr1:~ # chkconfig smpppd on insserv: FATAL: service network is missed in the runlevels 2 to use service smpppd insserv: exiting now! /sbin/insserv failed, exit code 1 linux-xjr1:~ # chkconfig -list smpppd smpppd 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
Qinternet doesn't connect to the internet. It seems that something went wrong with smpppd, didn't it?
I am running Ubuntu 10.10, and I would like to use my computer to share the internet connection from an ethernet port. For example, I would like to set up my computer as a wireless access point so I can create a network that other computers can connect to for internet.
I keep losing internet connectivity from within OpenSuse. I've had ubuntu/kubuntu beforeand never had a problem. I installed opensuse and now after a few minutes of browsing I'll lose my internet connection.I also dual boot into winXP without any problems.I noticed that when the connection is lost I can't even reach my router - which is where I'm getting the wired connection from.So it's not just the outside internet but the local network too. It only happens within opensuse.
After having updated unconditionally all packages in Kde-desktop-factory-repository to get the latest version 4.4.4, I can no longer connect to the Internet through Knetworkmanager. I receive the the following message from a pop-up window when clicking on the Knetworkmanager icon
Code: KNetworkManager cannot start because the installation is misconfigured.System DBUS policy does not allow it to provide user settings; contact your system administrator or distribution.KNetworkManager will not start automatically in future.I tried opening Knetworkmanager in a terminal as root user through 'su' but received the following message:
Code:# knetworkmanager knetworkmanager(2331): KUniqueApplication: Cannot find the D-Bus session server:"Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."
