Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 - When Connect Internet Via Wifi - Input Password - Make My Computer Slow To Halt
Jun 28, 2011
My Netbook is ASUS EeePc HA900, I already use Ubuntu 10.04 is ok, nothing problems, then I upgrade to Ubuntu 10.10, it is still Ok. But when I upgrade to ubuntu 11.04, it have problems with Wifi, when I connect Internet via Wifi, just input the Password, it make my computer slow to halt, and have to turn the power off to shutdown the computer.
I am having a strange problem I've never encountered before. I have an Asus Eee S101 10.1" netbook with the 32GB SSD. I installed Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Edition.
The other day, I was browsing with Firefox, when suddenly the entire computer came screeching to a halt. Had to power it down with the power button. After this happened, I have been unable to use the same Firefox profile I had been using. I had to start Firefox from the command line with the -ProfileManager switch, then create a new profile to keep browsing.
I wanted to completely get rid of the old profile, so from the Profile Manager I tried to delete the old one. Computer hung, had to reboot with the power switch. I then tried to browse to the .mozilla/firefox directory and delete the profile's directory there, from both Nautilus and the command line. Both times, the computer froze.
I tried a few more times, and the couple of times the computer didn't freeze, I got an error from the command line saying a Bash input/output error. After this error appeared, it would appear no matter what command I ran - I couldn't even run a sudo reboot now.
I can create/delete other files and directories, just not that Firefox profile.
I've finally managed to install Fedora 11 but I can't connect to the internet via wifi. Ethernet works fine though but when I unplug the cable and try to mess with the settings, I still can't connect. I'm currently using Mac iBook G4 and I can see that my wireless card (Broadcom wireless b/g) has been detected but I just can't seem to figure out how to make it work.
My wireless seems to be fast for a good 30secs then bang takes good while to load the next page almost as if it's disconnecting and then reconnecting/scanning reconnecting. Why cant it stay connected. I have WAP PSK security here is my network setting please let me know if I should change any of them:(side not is there a way to fix this problem occuring so frequently it says on the wiki that it should only occur once in a whilce https:[url].....
I can connect to the internet through wifi, but I cannot connect to anything on my network. I have a printer and a NAS, so I would really like for this to work again. I have a dell laptop with a Broadcom card.
I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 and I'm having problems with internet speeds on wifi. I have tried the two available networks on my university campus and both of them are very slow with 10.04. I'm not having problems with Windows 7 running on these networks. Although, the wired network works perfectly fine, with normal speeds. I've looked around for help but I could not find anything specific to this problem.
I have 2 computers connected to my linksys router via ethernet cables.
My main computer is running Ubuntu while the other is Xubuntu.
When both comps are on, the internet works fine, but when my second computer is off, my main computer has super slow internet. Sometimes it takes 2 minutes and I get "This webpage is not available", and then I refresh that and it finally loads.
Why does it work when both comps are on? What could cause this?
After upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04, I'm not able to make any connection to the internet with either my netbook through WiFi or my computer on wired LAN. I can, however, ping my Solaris machines and Macbook. How do I fix this?
I first noticed the problem because my wireless internet will stop working. The usb stick has its LED constantly on but it fails to connect. I have tried some methods of restarting the networking, like "sudo restart network-manager", disabling and re-enabling the wireless and networking from the taskbar applet. I tried removing the module and restarting it. It might be a bigger problem because I'll find that things will randomly hand for awhile, like opening system monitor, or running terminal commands. They do eventually run but only after several minutes. A restart seems to get everything working again, but the problem comes back at random times. I am willing to solve this right now as I have time, just let me know what info you need and I will post it.
Update: Some more info I forgot to include. I am running Ubuntu 11.04. It just froze again, I tried logging in and out but the internet still wouldn't work and things were hanging, I couldn't get file manager open. I have even tried shutting down the computer and had it stall on the Ubuntu logo with the dots loading so I had to hard restart.....
When I need to type in the password to get on a wifi network, the "connect" button is grayed out and unclickable until I've typed in 8 characters for the password, making it impossible to connect to networks with shorter passwords. I'm not sure if this problem is unique to 10.10 or not, I've been using linux for a couple years now and I've never tried to connect to a network with such a short password before until last weekend, after my friend figured out how to change his password from the one his ISP set for him.
I'm running Xubuntu 10.10 on an IBM T42 laptop, here's the relevant hardware from the lspci command, 02:01.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82540EP Gigabit Ethernet Controller (Mobile) (rev 03) 02:02.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter (rev 04)
I have a Synology home server at home. I have a laptop with Linux Mint 8 (Helena) installed. I can access my server's shared files using LAN through Places>Network>Windows Network>Workgroup>Server>Shared files. I can also access the files through a web browser. Samba is installed. The problem is when I use the wireless lan of my laptop, I cannot access the server and the files anymore locally even through a web browser.
I tried Connect to Server through Windows Share but what I get is "Could not display "smb://server/".".
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 64bit on a 15' Dell Studio After doing an update my internal wireless will not connect to my wireless network. The card is on, I can see networks around me, but it will not connect to mine. It just acts like its connecting and then disconnects.
i am tryin to connect to internet through wifi. for this i have to connect to router first and then open the web browser to put UN and PW. I am using ubuntu. i know UN and PW. I can connect to router but my(any) web browser cannot open the authentication page.
Im using Fedora 14, and I use mifi2372 for wireless wifi. The device is new and it will not connect to my laptop. Im sure the device is okay however I dont know about my laptop. The switch that turns on wifi does not turn blue.
I've been running ubuntu for about 6 months, so i'm still abit of a newbie at linux but heres what im having issues with:I'm having troubles connecting to the internet on ubuntu, i have no problems connecting on xubuntu on the same machine. I can connect to my network but i cant access the internet on firefox or snaptic or any of that, but the weird thing is i can successfully ping address' in the terminal. I can also connect to my router config page in firefox using 192.168.0.1.
My internet worked perfectly about a month ago on this ubuntu install, so i cant figure out what i did to make it stop working. I think it may have something to do with the/etc/resolv.conf file because it only exists as /etc/resolv.conf.tmp and when i run "sudo dhclient wlan0" (or eth0) it says:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo dhclient wlan0 Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client V3.1.2 Copyright 2004-2008 Internet Systems Consortium.
I have configured a squid proxy server with @2 eth in different network subnet and with site blocking and extn file download blocking. One eth0 for office wired network and another eth1 is for office wireless network for laptop use for guest and visitors.
The problem is [URL] is an Indian government website, which is not working though this proxy server and the Internet Explorer is getting very slow and freezing the computer. In alternate I have configured a another test server with squid proxy with out any security and test the same. the problem is still with the all the computer in the network. The above website is perfectly working with Gateway configuration in TCP/IP properties in Network Configuration in MS Windows XP computers but through squid proxy its not working.
I am using OpenSUSE 11.4 on my office desktop computer. I would like to prevent users tinkering my computer, since there are personal and important files. How can I ask a username and password? I have one of course, but it is asked only if I log out and then log in. In the first boot, everyone can reach the KDE desktop.I am pretty sure it is an easy task.
i just installed debian on one of my cvomputers that is more than 20 away from the wirless router router in the house and i can't get it to connect to thew internet via wifi i did this i went into system>administration>network and i sawmy wirless card and enabled it (a progress prompt came up for about 5 minutes) then i clicked properties and entered all of the information about my wirless router (i thought it would've scanned the area for any wirless ap) then i clicked okay and no dice, i went into the web browser and i get an error. what did i do wrong? how do i make it connect to the internet via wirless i have 2 wireless cards connected to this computer (sometimes linux doesn't kije the internal one so i connect the usb wirless card that i got)
After forgetting my wifi router password, I had to reset and reconfigure the router. I enabled WEP, and after I typed the password, the computer now recognises it automatically. But I can't connect to the internet no matter how long I wait. (The wired internet connection works fine.) How can I get the wifi to connect to the internet?
I'm running 11.2 on a Dell Latitude D630. Everything has been great other than issues with Suspend and hibernate not working correctly. However after about a month of use browsing the web has really slowed down bad. It doesn't seem to matter if it's in Firefox or Chrome either. I am using a wireless connection that is getting the signal at 85-95%. Even though I still tried using a direct cat-5 connection to the router and it was still slow as well. I have the fastest broadband connection my cable offers and my windows boxes on the same network are still flying.
Just got a secondhand Asus EeePC 100P netbook, fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10, and while I can connect to my wireless network and access the router through the browser, I can't connect to the internet. Pinging any other sites, either by domain name or IP, doesn't work. I've tried various things suggested in similar threads (putting in the DNS server info manually, disabling ipv6, restarting about a gazillion times), but nothing's worked so far. (My other computer, a Mac, can connect just fine.)
Attempted to install ndiswrapper, failed miserably, and I'm not sure if that's just for situations where the wifi itself doesn't work?
I'd be very grateful for any suggestions.
Here's what's under Connection Information at the moment:Interface: 802.11 WiFi (wlan0)
I didn't notice it before i installed compiz fusion, but perhaps it was happening then as well because i didn't play with fedora too much, but -- my problem is that after i open a few windows and a few minutes pass the entire system bogs down to what seems like 1 frame per 20sec. i can't even forcequit out of applications, and if i do it doesn't solve the problem. I read somewhere that GNOME might be trying to connect to the internet and hanging? ...
i share the computer that i have just installed ubuntu on and when i start it up it goes into the desktop without asking for a password but when it tries to connect to the Internet it requests a password how do i make it connect without me having to provide the password the only thing i want a password for is software package installationwe are also wondering why it doesn't show us a fancy splash screen on shutdown and startup like it did when we used the live cd
I can install the system, start setting it up, but eventually the system will halt with "Read only" errors, Input/Output errors on the drive the Distro is installed on and crap out. everything is working fine in Windows 7. It is just linux, seemingly. I've checked the hard-drive, memory, etc. I'm at an utter loss as to what is going on!
