OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wicd Connect To Essid But No Internet?
Jun 19, 2010
I had a wireless connection to open suse from last year. I then had a problem with my Netgear 824 router.
I have reconnected to windows vista. Now I have to get opensuse working on wireless. I do not have much experience in opensuse I have read the forums and the sticky and also from wicd forums. I have checked the yast settings and it is for AR242x ath0 and Wired L2 100 eth0.
Opensuse version 11 ,2.6.25-1.1 default
Laptop ASus F5RL
I have done the following:-
Even though I am not new to Suse, I am still very inexperienced, especially when it comes to wireless. I am running Suse Linux 11.3 and I am having problems connecting to my wireless. My network controller is a RaLink RT2500 802.11g Cardbus/mini-PCI (rev 01). I am recieving a signal from my wireless router, however when I try to connect to my ESSID via KnetworkManager It asks for a WEP key. After entering the key, Knetnetwork manager will try to connect for a minute or so and then it will ask for my WEP key again. It keeps repeating this cycle without ceasing. How to configure the WEP so that Knetwork manager will connect or a way around WEP.
I'm at a family member's house for the holiday and was trying to use their wifi. Its a WEP connection (I tried to tell them to change but they won't listen). In the wicd connection manager, I see their network, set the encryption to WEP (passphrase), enter the password, and hit connect. It says bringing up the card, checking authentication, then gets to Acquiring IP address, sits there for a minute, then times out saying unable to connect.
I know I used the right password because it passed the Authenticating part (tested with a wrong password that hangs at this point). I know that my wifi card works because I used a store's unsecured wifi connection through wicd. I know the wifi network works because my brother's windows netbook can get on just fine. I'm running through the same router right now with a wire instead. Why I can't connect wirelessly?
I'm using Slackware 64 on a HP dv2500 SE. I've been using wicd for my network connection. I have a Linksys wireless router. Recently I changed my ESSID to from the default linksys to something else. Now wicd, doesn't see my router as the new name. It still sees the linksys router but obviously can't connect to it. I have connected using the "find hidden network". Mostly i have to run iwconfig eth1 essid "newname"then dhcpcd eth1my question, how can i get wicd to see the newname and connect on it's own as it used to.
I recently installed wicd on a notebook with Squeeze. I can connect to the wireless network at my place. However I cannot connect at my friend's place. It timed out with the message: "Connection failed. Cannot obtain ip address."
It is a Thomson router/modem and the key is a 10 digit 64bit Hex. I did not see 64bit Hex option in wicd. So, I tried all 3 WEP options and none of them worked. We can connect to the same network with another computer with Squeeze and NM and also with Windows. This is the first time I am using wicd.
Newish to linux, been using Ubuntu for about a year, moved onto Sabayon 4.2 now. I also have another laptop with Kubuntu that is using Network Manager, it has no problem connecting to my wireless, one wireless uses WEP and one uses WPA 2. When my main laptop used Ubuntu it was using Network Manager, that connected with no problem. However Sabayon seems to have a problem. Initially I thought it was the DVD that I used to install it in, but after re-burning it and installing from fresh the problem still remains. What happens is that NM when connecting to a wireless prompts for a passkey, I enter it in and it fails right away.
This happens for WEP and WPA. If the network is unsecure then it connects with no problem. So I emerged WICD 1.6 to see if that would work, it hangs on 'Obtaining IP Address'. If I put static IP then it connects, but this cant be an option as at my University campus I cant set a static IP. I have tried to find the log file for NM, but cannot locate it. I understand that it should be located in /var/log/daemon.log, but daemon.log does not exist on my system. I checked every NM directory and could not find any log files. I have tried changing the settings in WICD to no effect.
I am running Natty on a Lenovo T410. I can connect to wireless with no problem using the panel applet but not using wicd. syslog shows it trying to get a DHCP address and finally timing out with no lease offers. I think a big clue is that if I monitor wlan0 using wireshark I get no traffic at all when it tries to connect, whereas with the applet I see the dhcp traffic. It seems as though wicd is connecting to the wrong wlan0. Running "dhclient wlan0" directly gives the same behavior as wicd. I need to use wicd because I typically run enlightenment so can't use the ubuntu applet.
I just upgraded to 13.37, and for some reason wicd now cannot connect to my wireless point. It keeps saying the password is wrong, when I know for an absolute fact that it is correct (even changed the password to '1' just to make sure, and no dice. Which is weird because even though its the exact same version of wicd, and not only that, it no longer seems to be able to see networks with my built in card, so having to use a USB card. Anyway, googling turned up very little. Seems to be a common problem across distros, and some people reported that downgrading to 1.6.x fixes it.
So, I ran Code: removepkg wicd And it uninstalled wicd. Downloaded wicd-188.8.131.52-x86_64-1.txz from a 13.0 mirror and did
Code: installpkg wicd-184.108.40.206-x86_64-1.txz While in the correct directory. It installed, and I ran wicd. But checking the version number when it loaded, it says its 1.7.0 again.
Not really sure why this happens. I'm assuming there's some remnant of wicd that removepkg doesn't dump, and its preventing me from installing this older version of wicd. What do I need to do for this? If anyone has a surefire way to make 1.7 work again, that would be fine.
I'v just installed wicd. I can't get it to sart, I get errors saying that wicd couldn't connect to it's dbus interface and the wicd deamon has shut down. Then there's a report from SELinux saying that it's preventing /usr/bin/python "write" access on /etc/dhcp/manager-settings.conf and that access is denied to wicd. I can get wicd to start if I su to root, but I'd like to not have to do that every time I boot. Is there a fix?
After I upgraded to current(Tue Mar 2 19:07:31 UTC 2010), I could not connect to any wireless network. It will always failed in obtaining IP address. When I rebuild the package and upgrade with the new one, the problem gone. Also I notice that the package I rebuild is different with the one on the stock tree:
ok so i have the new suse 11.2 installed it on my laptop with the intel wifi 5100 and i have no problem finding my network and connecting to it i can ping it i can log into it from firefox but i caanot access the internet if i try to go to google or ping a website nothing anyone envcounter this
Linux is what i'd like to learn, so Howdy to all and i hope to speak to you all regularly in short, I started with Ubuntu Linux about 6 months ago, Didn't like it, i researched various distro's and came across, PC Linux OS, it was really cool, But i couldn't get it to connect Wirelessly, so i tried something else... the bottom line is i finally settled on SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11, i seem to like it a lot.Ok.. now that introductions are out of the way
Background info: I've installed SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 on my Sony Vaio Laptop (VGN-NW15G) with no major issues, after a bit of mucking around, i got the LAN to Connect to the internet, after some more mucking around, i figured out how to get the WLAN to connect to the internet.MY Goal: To be able to Wirelessly Network my Laptop with My PC.so that i can access the files on the PC, From my laptop, and Vice Versa, but the important thing is to first be able to access the PC files from the Laptop.
NOTE: My PC has 4 Hard Drives (1 for the O/s, 3 Backups) they are all configured and Shared correctly for Networking and Wireless networking, and all the permissions are set correctly.Hardware and Software Environments:My Laptop : Sony Vaio VGN-NW15GOperating System : SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11Wireless Capable, and has no issues Wireless Networking when running of a Hard Drive Loaded with Win 7 Ultimate 32bit, Therefore all Hardware is Compatible
My PC (Custom Built) Operating System : Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit SP1 Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X58-UD3R Rev1.0
I have just recently installed Open SUSE 11.2 from a CD I got from a Linux Magazine.Installed this fine as a dual-boot machine on my HP laptop.To access the Internet, I have normally used 2 ways:1. WIFI Connection via my home desktopUsing Netgear WG111v3 USB Adapter.2. Virgin Broadband USB Mobile Broadband stickI have no problem connecting this via my Windows Vista operating system.Somehow, under Open SUSE 11.2, this is a problem. 2. Virgin Broadband - I managed to get the Virgin Broadband icon of a mobile phone saying that it's connected and "Active" by keying in the number "*99#", username/password as blank and APN as VirginBroadband". However, when I launch Firefox browser, I couldn't get to any external Website even though the icon for the Virgin Broadband says that it's Active and connected.
So what's the problem ?1. WIFI Connectivity to Home Desktop WIFI - with this I have never never got any connection at all. It kept saying "Activating" and I have set up the connection and entered the WEP 128-bit paraphrase hex digits. I managed to scan and got the correct SSID and as I know they belong to my desktopI read somewhere that Netgear WG111v3 is not compatible with Open Suse 11.2 and will need to install the driver for this. So I did obtain the .INF file and installed ndiswrapper -i with the .inf file.. However, still not successful.I'm thinking of buying a Belkin USB Adapter which is in the list of compatible USB WIFI Adapter for Open Suse 11.2 - .. the 802.11g chipset.. as I couldn't get this to work
I posted earlier and got no response, so here i go again. I installed openSUSE 11.3 KDE, it all works fine but the wireless doesnt work and i cant connect to the internet at all, i don't know how to, and i don't even know if the proper drivers are installed. I posted this in the last thread:
"i ran this this command in ubuntu:
Code: lspci | grep -i network came up with this result:
I had an ATT "2Wire" modem/router that was working but connection to the Internet was often poor. An ATT technician came to my home and swapped out the modem/router for the identical model. I changed the ESSID and WEP code to match the new unit and everything was fine with the following wireless units: a wireless desktop, two cellphones, three wireless Archos tablets, and a couple of e-reader tablets. So all seemed to be fine wirelessly. However...
My laptop (SuSE 11.0, KDE3) simply won't connect no matter what I do. I changed the ESSID and WEP info in the lappy exactly as was done with the other wireless devices named above. But no good. The lappy does see the modem/router (a good, strong signal appears in KNetworkManager). But it seems as if the modem/router is rejecting the lappy's attempted handshake using the new ESSID and/or WEP information.
I thought that perhaps there was something wrong with the lappy's wireless card, so I took it to a Starbucks to see if it would connect there on an open network, and it did without problem. So the lappy's wireless card appears to be working fine. It just won't talk to the encrypted modem/router at home. Here are the settings on the lappy. Hopefully something here is easily identified as the culprit. With all the clicking I've done it certainly is possible that I ticked something that should not have been ticked and just don't realize what I've done.
Network settings screen: Global options tab: Network setup method: user controlled with Network Manager Change default route via DHCP (ticked)
Why won't the new modem/router which is exactly the same as the old one except for the ESSID and WEP work with my lappy yet it does work with a bunch of other wireless devices?
Just today I installed opensuse 11.3 on my Compaq CQ61. Even though I am able to connect to networks (both with an ethernet cable and wireless) I don't have internet access. I have used opensuse for a very brief period in the past and I had no such problem.
I have a rtl8192e card and the drivers and everything are set up properly. I can not connect to WEP encrypted networks using network manager. I can however connect using iwconfig and dhcpcd. I uninstalled network manager and installed WICD and have the same problem. It will connect to the access point when it is configured with WPA, but not WEP which we need to use for the other computer. In the status bar of WICD it looks like it is trying to configure the encryption as WPA no matter what I select. I've looked in the config files for WICD and can't see anything that would do it.
I have wicd 1.6.1 (bzr-r426) and it is working very good with my root user but with all those which have not the root rights wicd asks for superuser password to connect. I want to avoid this pop-up window to be shown, how can I proceed? I first thought about the sid and gid but it seems that there is no improvements using chmod 4755 and 2755 on the different files involved in.
I tried to install Xubuntu 10.10 Maverick as dual boot on my laptop. However when xubuntu is on, I can't find a way to connect to internet. When I try the 2 arrows on the up-right corner the option for wireless is deemed. I tried offline/online, that did not work either. when I click the firefox It says you are not connected.
The wireless network on my laptop is configured with a static IP. (not using nm). When I take the laptop out of the range of my wireless router the essid is becoming off/any therefore when I'm back in range the connection is not reestablished and to re-enable the connection I gotta do "iwconfig wlan0 essid <essid name>" otherwise there is no connection. Make sure that essid stays configured unless I manually want to change it?
I have a CentOS 5.5 server running currently with a Netgear gigabit ethernet card and for wifi I have a wi-fi card with the chipset: RT2860.Now I have gotten the ethernet card and wi-fi card working but my main question is: How do you bridge the connection between the ethernet card and the wi-fi card to create a wireless network with a hidden ESSID if possible and WPA encryption? (So the server basically acts as a wireless router as well as doing all the other stuff I need to do on it).
I can't get my wlan running, although it already worked on my notebook (Dell Inspiron 1545) with opensuse 11.1. Then I installed debian and, I don't know how, it changed my kernel in grub from .pae to .debug (renameing in grub didn't help)
According to the messages scanning fails
My wlan-controller is:
Router is avm Fritz!Box and is working fine with other notebooks and the lan of the Dell
I loaded down and installed the driver from Bradcom (hybrid-portsrc-x86_32-v220.127.116.11.3.tar.gz)
dmesg came up with a failure: not ipv6 server found - so I deactivated it
I have an HP Mini 311 laptop with Windows XP. I would like to run Ubuntu on it but I can't get the wireless network to work. The laptop uses a Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN that works with Windows XP. I can bring the laptop up on Ubuntu 10.10 netbook using a USB flash drive. Before I try to install it on the hard drive I am using the "Try UBUNTU first". Everything seems to work except the wireless. I can only connect to the internet through an ethernet cable.How do I go about getting the wireless to work?
