Ubuntu :: Cannot Connect Wireless Through Wired Router?
Aug 13, 2011
I have searched and found no answer to this one. I have a Linksys DSL router BEFSR41 (wired) which works great. I recently got a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband router. Which also works great with my Dell mini 10 netbook running 10.04. I have two computers (wired) also running 10.04, what I want to do is use both routers with only one internet DSL connection. I have the wired (Master Router) connected to the wireless (Slave Router) and I fire up the Dell it sees it and connects but I can't connect to the internet. I can connect through my network and share files through all 3 machines. Do I need to reset the wireless, to enjoy the internet? If so the wireless came without instructions or CD.
I wanted to try Ubuntu again but have gone wayback to an old 8.10 disk because I couldn't get 10.10 to work. The install with 8.10 went fine but the internet will not connect. The network manager shows eth0 grayed out and when going in to manage the connection it says 'never'. I'm using Vista with a broadband modem connected to a netgear router.
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.
i recently connected this router to mahh modem..http:[url]....before router connection i was able to connect to internet via "pppoeconf command" but now i am not able to connect to internet from ubuntu ..i am still using lan cable coming out or router to connect it with pc..
I have installed Ubuntu for the first time (version 11.04), finally making the step to open source software. Everything seems to be working fine, however I can't connect to my router via a wired connection.I can use the wireless network,hich was detected and I could connect by giving the code. But when I try to connect to this network by wired network, it tries to connect and it says "connection offline" after a while. It never establishes a connection. I used the standard automatic DHCP settings of eth0. I never got this problem with another OS and it's not the cable that's not working
I'm trying to set up a wired/wireless linux router. it wirelessly connects to a network, then is wired to the internet port on my netgear wgr614.
eth0 (wireless) is dhcp
Internet port is static
And local network
I turned forwarding on, set the iptables for masquerade and nat, but i'm not really sure what i'm doing wrong. any pc connected to the wrg614 can see the pc thats supposed to be forwarding packets but can't see any further(the other router at 192.168.1.1 or the internet).
I have just installed ubuntu 10.04 using the wubi installer to dual-boot my machine. Under ubuntu, I am not able to connect to the internet or my router. Everything works fine under windows. I have tried to find relevant information in the forums, but nothing seems to work for me. I have tried disabling ipv6, setting a static ip, but no go. ifconfig shows no IP, dhclient results in no DHCP offers and pinging my router's IP results in Network is Unreachable.
in linux world and have recently downloaded and installed ubuntu desktop 10.10i cannot connect to both wired and wireless ethernet on my laptopit tries to connect but fails in 30 seconds , it says"disconnected" while i am able to connect to the same in windows i have broadcom 4315 and i have tried both fwcutter and ndiswrapper but the problem persiststhe device id is 14e4:4315
Those are my authentication capabilities, obviously. I am using a WEP encryption for my wireless router and according to this, it will not allow me to connect. Is there anyway to allow that? The wireless card works just fine in Windows, even on the same network encryption type. Using a Intel Wireless/Pro 4965 ag. Note* this is my mother's router and whatnot. She won't change it the encryption type.
I installed a Tenda W322P wireless card in my dual-boot PC running both Windows XP and Ubuntu 11.04. The card worked straight out of the box on XP, but does not function correctly under Ubuntu. My apologies for any missing/irrelevant information, I am having to post this from the Windows boot so the Ubuntu settings are not directly available at the same time as internet access.I followed the process detailed here htURL...to install and configure the driver (I believe from reading other sites that this card is the Ralink RT3062 chipset), blacklisted the original RT2860 driver that was in use (couldn't even get the card to scan for wireless networks with the default driver) and restarted the interface.
Since then, sudo iwlist scan can find my wireless router but when I attempt to connect to it, it seems to enter a loop of requesting the WEP key then pausing for a while before re-requesting the key. I know I have the key value correct because it is copied and pasted from the same text file I used to copy and paste into the passkey field on the Windows boot. Attempting to connect to the router using Ubuntu also has the rather unfortunate side-effect of crashing the wireless router, killing off all other device connections until the router has been reset.
I just did a fresh install of ubuntu studio 10.04 and I can not connect to either a wired or wireless network. The In Network Tools the IPv4 IP address is 127.0.0.1. It is plugged into a network giving out DHCP IP's. Both wired and wireless were working on ubuntu 9. I have tried to bring eth0 up in the terminal but it did not give an error or anything. It it running on a Dell Latitude D820 laptop.
I have recently developed a problem with my computer connecting to the internet which has totally stumped me and is currently forcing my to use windows much to my frustration. I am using ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop. My wireless and wired network connections will not connect. They are all present in the menu and i can click on them but the connection tries to connect and then just times out and fails to connect. Everything still works fine in windows Vista. The more confusing thing is i tried some live disks to see if they would work but they all did exactly the same thing including a live disk of ubuntu 9.10 which used to work perfectly and live disks of openSUSE 11.4 and Mint 10. I struggling to tell if this could be a hardware problem or not. The fact that the live disks wouldn't work suggests a hardware problem but the fact that Vista still works totally throws that argument. I have looked all over these forums and elsewhere and have found some similar ish problems but non seem to have the severity of this one as all of those seem to be wireless only problems. The only thing that i was doing at the time this started was i had just set up a new secondary user account but i suspect that may be coincidental.
I have a laptop with Ubuntu 9.04 on it. I wanted to try out fluxbox, so I did a apt-get install fluxbox. When I went into fluxbox, I was having trouble getting connected to my network wirelessly. I saw a post online that said to install wicd. So I did a apt-get install wicd. This removed the Gnome network manager (nm-applet) which I didn't realize that it would do. I removed wicd when I saw this is what happened, and now I can't connect to a wired or wireless network. I tried connecting to my wired network, and I ran
Code: sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.115
but I still can't access the internet, or other things on the network.
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 installed ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop a few days ago and love the OS so far. However, initially i could only get internet connection though an ethernet cord. After much internet searching, i finally figured out how to get wireless internet. Unfortunately, in setting up wireless internet, I no longer have wired internet. The system doesn't seem to recognize my wired internet anymore. I'd like a scenario where i can connect to the internet both wired and wireless.
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on an HP Pavilion dv6000 series laptop, dual-boot. Everything is working except the networking. It can see wireless networks, and when I type in the password for my wireless network, it tries to connect, then asks for the password again. When I plug in the Ethernet cable, again it tries to connect, but after a few seconds gives up and tells me I am now offline.
I can connect to my wireless router while logged in as root, but not under my user account. I went into YAST and the user maintenance area and gave myself every permission (Add, Edit, Delete Users or Accounts), but kde network maanger will not allow me to connect to my router.
I am unable to connect to any network, wired or wireless. Network-manager and wicd are both gone, as in no longer installed. Please don't tell me to apt-get anything. I have no network connection. I have tried downloading packages for nm onto a usb stick only to find myself in dependency hell which ended with the impassible error "Requires installation of untrusted packages".
I have just setup Ubuntu on my Dell Laptop a Lattitude C640 with a 3Com 3c905C Tornado Wifi Card. Well the wired and wireless do not work. They try to connect then bang no connection. I would be able to make some headway I think but I have no basic skills with Ubuntu. I have mastered how to get info from the terminal but how the heck to you edit a file? How do you get to that stage?
I've just installed 11.04 Natty on an old Laptop (Dell Lattitude C400) and am unable to connect to my home network (wired LAN connection, no wireless). The laptop previously had WinXP installed and was able to connect (I have also double checked the cables and ports and they're all functioning ok).
I have recently installed Ubuntu lucid lynx and at my old house I had a regular cable modem (no wifi) and never used wireless internet. I would simply unplug the ethernet from the windows desktop plug it to my laptop and I was good 2 go.have recently moved and my roommate has a cable modem w/ wifi capabilities. When I plug in I am told that I am connected but......Nothing. dont know if the problem is due to the modem having wireless capabilities when my old one did not or the fact that my roommate has a win7 laptop that is connected via wifi etc. There have been a FEW times that I have walked out plugged in and everything has ran well. when I do plug in I look under connection information and I am told that I am connected at 100Mbps but whenever I try to visit a page I am out of luck. I define newbie (as far as Linux distros) and I have tried everything including going to work w/no sleep because I'm going through massive trial & errors
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my Toshiba A200-12U laptop (with an Atheros AR5007EG wireless card), but networking is being problematic.I entered Network Configurations and tried to get 'Auto eth0' working -- I went to Edit > IPv4 settings and filled in 'Addresses' with the details of my connection:
Address: 192.168.1.254 (the local IP of my router) Netmask: 255.255.252.0 Gateway: 22.214.171.124
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on one of my computers and the only way I can connect to the internet with it is through a wire. I have a wireless router and I want to know how I can use the internet wirelessly on that machine. The router is set up correctly because I am on the internet on my laptop (its a mac with OS X) and it is not connected by a wire.I also want to know if Verizon DSL works with Ubuntu.
Just installed Xubuntu 10.04(old HP POS i threw together right quick) and can't seem to get my wireless (card > bridge) to connect to the router.. Havn't been around 'nix for YEARS and I mean YEARS, early 90s!!!! I'm back now and want to get in it again... Now my card is all good, lspci picks it up and have the name of my "interface" so what's is wrong?? Sorry for the EXTREME n00b.
