Networking :: Set Up A Laptop As A Router To Connect Wirelessly To ADSL Router?

Nov 6, 2009

I have a desktop PC running Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7, and a Eee PC 701 laptop running EasyPeasy Ubuntu 9.04. I'd like to connect the desktop to the laptop with a wired connection (eth0), then the laptop to my ADSL router using wireless (ath0).

I have a crossover ethernet cable (I bought on ebay). I have set up my laptop with a static IP address on my LAN and it uses OpenDNS.

I have added this to /etc/sysctl.conf on the laptop:


Then I tried this on the laptop:

sudo iptables --table nat --append POSTROUTING --out-interface ath0 -j MASQUERADE
sudo iptables --append FORWARD --in-interface eth0 -j ACCEPT

This is a variation on what I found on other sites describing how to set up a router. I don't understand iptables very well, but I gather that the above two lines should set up forwarding so that traffic from my router to the laptop will be forwarded to the desktop, and vice versa.

But this doesn't work. The connection doesn't even establish between the laptop and the desktop.

OpenSUSE Network :: Connect Wirelessly To A Home Router But Cannot Use The Wireless In Any Other Way?

Apr 14, 2010

I am running openSUSE 11.2 and just recently my network has been down. I'm using Gnome, but using Yast to configure my network (I'm usually forced to use wireless as I travel a lot on my laptop). Usually, when I'm connected to a wireless network, it will show up as so in the Gnome start menu, but recently, it will only say Wired there, even though I have nothing connected to my ethernet jack. I can connect wirelessly to a home router, but cannot use the wireless in any other way. I have tried manually disabling the ethernet connection to no avail. Unfortunately I am limited in my linux knowledge, so I am kinda stuck here.

General :: Connecting To The Internet Both Wirelessly And With An Ethernet Cord Into The Router

Oct 11, 2010

I just installed Fedora Core on my Dell Inpsiron B130 laptop and I am having trouble connecting to the internet both wirelessly and with an ethernet cord into the router. When trying to configure my network, I dont recognize any of the ethernet adapters in the drop down list. I have been told that my wireless card is Linux compatible (dell y8029 dell wireless 1370 802.11/a/b/g mini pci). My ethernet card is a B130 Broadcom Ethernet Driver which isnt in the drop down menu either.

I read that I need to download an ndiswrapper but I dont know where to find this download AND even if I could download it to a zipdribe, I have trouble opening a USB flash in Linux becuase its not a "valid block device". This is after the command "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbflash"

Ubuntu :: Can't Connect Wirelessly To The Internet?

Jan 15, 2011

After years of neglecting to get into Linux (for no real reason other than being lazy and decently content with Windows), I've not been shoved head first into the Linux world due to a Linux class I am taking. I've only been in the class for two weeks, so sorry about my lack of Linux knowledge! Anyway, I've downloaded and installed Ubuntu (using wubi, off of Windows 7 on a Sony Vaio VPCF1) and I'm having a few problems.

The main problem is that I can't connect wirelessly to the internet. Using ethernet works great, but I need to be able to take my laptop to class so I need to figure out how to get this working. The only thing I've tried was to check System> Admin> Hardware (or something along those lines?) to see that it said I have no peripherals connected. I don't even know if that is the right place to start, again.. The next problem is that the mouse-pad does not work. This is not a huge problem as I have a wireless USB one that works great, but still something I'd love to learn how to fix, if only for the knowledge of how to.

After that... is it possible to change resolution in Linux? I assume yes, how? And final question! Is this all something to do with wubi? Would it be better to do a dual boot with Windows 7, or would that even make much of a difference?

Hardware :: Can't Connect To WRT54g Wirelessly

Feb 20, 2010

I've got a Linksys WRT54G v2.2 and a SmartAX MT882 modem I can connect to the Internet by connecting a Ethernet cable from the computer to the router but not wirelessly. I did the following to get it setup from my computer, can anyone see what I may have missed?Now connect the MT882 Ethernet cable directly into one of the WRT54G's LAN ports. Now once the computers are connected they will ask for an IP address and the WRT54G will forward them to the MT882's DHCP server for an address and thus you will get multiple computers through wireless connected to the MT882 and the Internet.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Connect Wirelessly - Driver Installation Failed

Jul 8, 2010

I have an Compaq Mini 700 which has a busted hard drive. I'm trying to get Ubuntu onto a USB disc to use the internet. I have tried Ubuntu Netbook Remix and Desktop and neither will connect wirelessly. A wireless icon appears with an ! indicating a problem. When going into Hardware Drivers there are 2: Broadcom B43 wireless driver and Broadcom STA wireless driver - neither are activated. Trying to activate the first results in an instant error: "Sorry, installation of this driver failed. Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log". The second goes through the process of installing and results in an error. When trying to install anything it all results in some kind of error. How can I get the wireless card working? I believe it is a broadcom.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Connect Wirelessly - Drivers Installation Failed

Mar 12, 2010

I'm not completely new to ubuntu, I've been using it for about 6 months, my laptop, suddenly decided to no longer let me connect wirelessly, it was mid pidgin conversation, I couldn't even tick the box to enable wireless. So I read in one of these posts that one person had to reinstall their wireless driver to get it working again. so I uninstalled my driver (Broadcom STA) however when I went to activate it, all I get is the error message installation failed and to look for log "/var/log/jockey.log" and here I admit that I'm not knowledgeable about computers since I'm not sure where to look for the log and also what the log would mean.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Connect Wirelessly Using BCM431 WLAN Card

May 17, 2011

I upgraded Ubuntu to 11.04 I can NO longer connect wirelessly using my BCM4312 WLAN Card. It connected with no problems before dist upgrade using Ubuntu 10.04. Im really not sure why I cannot connect. I cannot even see my router in edit wireless connections settings. I can however see my neighbours routers who are using WPA2 encryption. But I cannot see my router.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled The Broadcom STA proprietry wireless driver several times using Additional drivers. This did not fix my issue.

I am connected by ethernet at the moment so I do have internet connection.

Ubuntu Networking :: Authentication - Wirelessly Connect To My Network - Cannot Get Address

May 27, 2011

I have been trying to wirelessly connect to my network for weeks now. My netgear dongle is fully working. I have installed the driver using ndiswrapper. I can see my network and signal is excellent; everything is working perfectly. When I try to connect it thinks about it but never connects. The password is fine; it works great with other computers. decided to have a go with wicd, so got rid of the Gnome network manager and installed wicd. Adaptor and wicd appear to be working brilliantly EXCEPT I cannot connect. wicd tells me its a bad password. Password fine because it works brilliantly with every other device I connect to my network. If I remove security from network, it tells me it cannot get address, even though it sailed passed that with no problem when there was security. I have searched the internet for a solution to this problem time and time again. Lots of people seem to be having this problem, but no one knows the solution. Is there a solution? It happens with both Ubuntu 10.04 LTS v1 v2 and Ubuntu 11.04. What the heck is going on. This happens with WPA WEP and anything else I try to use

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Connect To The Internet But Can Connect To The Router

I am trying to setup a dhcp server for my internal network. I have two NICs, a modem, and a wireless router. I have my server connected directly to my modem which is providing me with Internet access on eth1 and is working fine. I have dhcp and dns setup on eth0 which is connected to my router. The router shows that it is connected to the Internet but when the router gives a client computer an IP address, the client is unable to connect to the Internet but can connect to the router. I will post my configuration files below with my current configuration.

Ubuntu Networking :: Use One Wireless Router To Connect/detect To Another Wireless Router?

Aug 1, 2010

My son lost his USB Wireless stick for his Computer. I had thought I heard that if you had a second wireless router, you could use it somehow to detect the wireless router you have already set up in your home (like using a wireless card)? Is this what Ad-Hoc is? Either way, can this be done and if so how? I use a WRT54Gx2 Lynksys router and have a TRENDNET TEW-432BRP wireless router and also a spare D-link DI-514. I use ubuntu 10.04, and also wanted to know if I connected one of the router to his on the LAn port could he connect msaybe through an Ad-Hoc on my local computer here? He uses XP on his. I'm a newbie to linux and networking in general.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Connect To Printer Wirelessly - Error Idle "Connecting To Printer"

I am unable to connect to my printer wirelessly. I get this: Idle - "Connecting to printer..." The computer never connects. I can print a configuration report and get the ip address. If I type that in a webrowser, I get an error: unable to connect. Even if I plug the printer into the computer by a usb, I am unable to access the printer's ip address in the webrowser. I'm not sure how to proceed on getting the printer working wirelessly. It is a hp 6940 I use the HP Deskjet 6940 Series hpijs, 3.10.2rc1.9 driver. I have only recently been having printer problems. The printer has been hooked up on the same network for years. It still prints via usb.
