Ubuntu Installation :: Wireless Network Noticed Connection And Accepted Password But Didn't Connect

Mar 16, 2011

When I firsts installed Ubuntu 10.04, and tried to hook it up to my wireless network it noticed my connection and accepted my password, but did not connect. My wireless card doesn't have linux drivers installed. I found the correct drivers, but I am unsure of the correct way to install them in Windows so they work in Ubuntu. I am currently dual booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Wireless Password Not Accepted ?

Aug 2, 2010

I have recently helped a friend of mine install ubuntu on their macbook which they have had since 2007 and we have run into a problem connecting to her wireless network. The WPA2 password that she uses is "invalid" while logged in under her ubuntu partition. We are able to connect to unprotected wifi networks without a problem and her home network can be accessed via OSX and my linux install on an acer aspire one (I'm running Peppermint OS at the moment). This has been a problem since day one of her ubuntu installation.

OpenSUSE Install :: USB Installation - Password Not Accepted On Different Computer?

Mar 5, 2011

I have installed suse 11.3 on a USB drive and can boot from it successfully. The install was done using my desktop computer. I then booted my netbook using the usb drive, linux loads and runs fine, however when i need to enter the password to make any changes it will not accept it.

Desktop is running Windows XP service pack 3, 4GB RAM
Netbook is running Windows 7 Starter 2GB RAM.

OpenSUSE Network :: Keyring Password Window Appears When Connect To INTERNET Via DSL Connection

Jul 30, 2010

I'm a bit puzzled by new "keyring everywhere" feature, well the case: Now I'm using 11.3 brand new suse and just when I want to connect to INTERNET via my DSL connection, a keyring password window appears, well I fill in the keyring password and hit enter, then another window pops out with my DSL connection asking me to enter a password for my DSL connection (but I've already set it up it before) and ok, I enter my password hit enter, but DSL window pops out again! and nothing happens,

I do it several times like a puppet, then I delete my DSL connection and make it again, so everything works with passwords no(no keyring is being promted). SO what do I do wrong? How can I disable this keyring feature, I do not need it at all, why do I need to recreate my connection every single time?

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To My Wireless Network Without The Use Of An Admin Password?

Oct 18, 2010

Is there a way i can setup my computer so i can connect to my wireless network without the use of an admin password? i personally feel that it wouldn't be a security risk of any sort to not require a password to connect to an ecrypted wireless connection.

Ubuntu Installation :: Noticed That The Connection Flashed Orange For A Bit And Then Returned To Simply Flashing Slow?

Apr 6, 2011

I just did a new install on a pc chips p23g motherboard based machine. This motherboard has a built in 10/100 connector. When installing I noticed that the connection flashed orange for a bit and then returned to simply flashing slow. Its my understanding that if you have a green steady light and a flashing orange then there IS a connect. If this is true then, for some reason the install didn't find it or didn't install a driver for it. I installed 2 times just to make sure.Oh, when installing, off the dvd (10.4) it said there was a problem but it would give me a desktop so that I could figure it out.I am clueless.There was a box to install and that is what I have been using. Obviously, I am missing something here

Ubuntu :: WPA/WP2 Wireless Connection - Unable To Connect To My Network

Oct 5, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my HP Pavilion dv5. My laptop has a Broadcom 4312 wireless adapter. The driver for the adapter was installed by Ubuntu as a proprietary driver. The wireless light is on and I can see the available networks, but I am unable to connect to my network. The correct authorization is set(WPA/WPA2) and I have entered the passphrase correctly.

I am able to connect to the wireless network successfully from my Windows login(that is how I confirmed that the passphrase is accurate). The network shows that it is trying to connect, but the wireless authentication dialog(asking for the passphrase) keeps popping up. Incidentally, the same thing happened when I tried openSuSe and Fedora on a spare laptop. The windows systems can connect, but not the Linux systems.

Ubuntu Networking :: Bad Password - Error Message When Trying To Connect To WPA/WPA2 Wireless Network

Jul 5, 2011

I keep getting a "bad password" error message when trying to connect via wpa_supplicant to a wireless network (Apple Time Capsule WPA/WPA2 mixed).

Here's my wpa_supplicant.conf:


And the relevant line in the /etc/network/interfaces file:


The Time Capsule log contains the following error message--


So perhaps the password is somehow getting lost in translation from Ubuntu to the Time Capsule?

OpenSUSE Network :: Network Connections Didn't Have Connection

Jan 14, 2011

I just finished a fresh install of 11.3 on an HP 7900 small form factor and have no network connectivity. In Network Tools eth0 shows the state as inactive. Network Connections didn't have a connection, so after letting it create one there is no MAC address. I copied and pasted the MAC address from Network Connections eth0, set up a static address with default gateway, netmask, etc. all set appropriately and rebooted. Still no joy.

I want this to get an address via DHCP, I just set up a static address for testing.11.2 sensed the NIC without issue, but 11.3 doesn't seem to like me right now.I wanted to get this deployed on 40 machines today. Oh well.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Connection Working, Network Appears In List, But Does Not Connect To It?

Mar 16, 2011

I'm having some problems with my wireless connection. I'm on Ubuntu 10.04, on a HP ProBook 4520s, with a RaLink RT3090 wireless network card. I installed the drivers (hopefully correctly), the wireless seems to work correctly, it scans and finds networks, but when I try to connect to one, it times out after some time, while still attempting to connect. I also have a wired connection that works correctly and without problems. Other computers that try to connect to said wireless network manage to do so without any problems, so this has left me a bit baffled, since, like I said, everything seems to be in order.

I'm a new Ubuntu user, so please tell me what other information I need to provide in order to easily and successfully facilitate troubleshooting this, because it is, as you can imagine, quite aggravating, having a laptop that needs to be connected to the internet through a cable.

Networking :: Wireless Network Connection - Router - Won't Connect Fast - Automatic

May 26, 2009

My computer takes a while to connect to my Linksys N router.

It used to connect in a snap of your finger automatically.

Now it does not.

Yes I have tried manual configuration, and double checking the password, ssid, protocols, and security type.

WPA2 personal is the security type.

There are maybe 4 different ways I know how to connect. The most annoying thing is when this box pops up saying to type in a password for the network connection.. and keeps popping up even when everything is right.

All I need is a reliable, easy, and automatic program to connect me to the internet, maybe even before I log into my system.

Linux Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Desktop Edition is my system. Brilliant system.

Ubuntu :: Root Password Not Accepted After Update (11.04)?

May 29, 2011

I did a routine update on 11.04, and after it was complete my root password appears to have changed.I have NOT forgotten it, and I'm absolutely sure that I'm typing it in correctly. More frustratingly, I know that I had to use it in order to do the update, but right after it was completed, I tried to make a small change and it was telling me that it's incorrect

Debian :: The Backuppc Password Was Not Accepted?

Apr 5, 2011

BackupPC usually just works. It backs up the localhost and another PC, both running Debian Unstable. However it stopped backing up the remote machine after the 22nd March.This correlates with updating OpenSSH.All I get is "Unable to read 4 bytes from Server".As suggested on the backupPC website I ranCode:sudo -u backuppc /usr/share/backuppc/bin/BackupPC_dump -v -f backupclientI was asked for the sudo password and then for a password for each directory that was to be backed up.The backuppc password was not accepted. The root password was.Could somebody point me towards a solution? Do I have to recreate the SSH keys?

Ubuntu :: Password Not Accepted And Recovery Console Is Dead

Aug 16, 2010

Yes thats right. Last night I changed my logon password for better security. (have a feeling my flatmate knows it). When I tried to log in today, it wouldn't accept my password. No I know that I got it correct. I know this for a fact. So after a few tries, I decided stuff this, I am going to reset it using recovery console. But the recovery console just hangs with the following on the screen:

[4.1098198] Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 100x30

I can ctrl+alt f2, and I just get a flashing cursor. So that's it then. My ubuntu box is hosed and I am about twenty minutes away from formatting and starting again. 6 months of schoolwork, designs for architectural competitions etc all gone.

Ubuntu Networking :: Network Manager - Wireless Connection - Dell Laptop Error Wicd States "Wrong Password" Which Is Not True

Jun 11, 2010

These problems just started the last couple of days but I have been using Lucid 10.04 for a month now. My wireless Signal varies in strength wildly. I sitting at home, not 20 feet from my router. I never had these problems before Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04. I am running both Network Manager and Wicd.

1. Wicd states "Wrong Password" which is not true.
2. Dropping off-line for no reason, sometimes 3 or 4 times a minute and sometimes it works fine for hours.
3. Firefox 3.6.3 Automatically Checking "Work Offline"!?


I have the Proper Wireless Drivers. I have not changed my wireless settings, channel or WPA for 8 months now so I know thats not it.

CentOS 5 :: Partial Password Logins Accepted?

Jun 18, 2010

I am new to CentOS, and am having a problem with authentication.The system accepts the login if the first 8 characters of the password are correct, regardless of the length of the password.My root password is 15 characters, but entering the first 8 my login is approved, which is a bit of a security concern.I think this may be something I am missing in the PAM configuration.I've experienced the behavior on SSH as well as Webmin.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Wireless Network Connection?

Sep 6, 2010

I have been uninstalling, reinstalling, .... for about the past 14 hours and finally I realize I need help. First, I am trying to install the latest Ubuntu 10.04.1 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 laptop (HP Pavilion).

I did have 10.04 running for a few months on this laptop but when I recently upgraded to ver. .... 32-24 things started to go wrong. Suddenly, I could no longer even bootup Ubuntu ...32-24. But, I was able to use ...32-23 or ...32-21 which were also on my machine. Then in trying to fix ...32-24 all my installed versions of Ubuntu 10.04 became unbootable. I tried many suggestions (see my postings on this yesterday and today on the Ubuntu forum -- General help) .

I realized that this was hopeless after many attempts. I could not bootup, even from my bootable Ubuntu CD. I then decided to just begin from scratch and install the latest downloadable Ubuntu --- I started with this early this morning. This went rather smooth; but, no matter how many reinstallations I did, I could never make a wireless connection to the network. Note, the same wireless hardware and settings were used as in the previous working versions of Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7 (on the same machine) --- I have not made any hardware changes.

I am sending this message from my desktop PC which has Ubuntu 10.04 (32-bit) and again, I have carefully checked and verified that the setting for my wireless connection to the internet are identical for both (this desktop and my laptop). However, I am still unable to make a wireless network connection on my laptop!

What can I do to get my wireless network working on my laptop with the latest download of Ubuntu 10.04.1? It could be that this latest download of Ubuntu 10.04.1 does not have the necessary drivers/software for the wireless network. But, it was ok in the previous downloadable --- I had been using it for a couple of months with no problems at all. Is it possible to reinstall 10.04 vers. ...32-23 rather that 10.04.1 vers. ...32-24? I could not find this on the Web.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Network Settings And Usb-wlan-card Didn't Work

May 8, 2010

i installed suse (KDE) on my old notebook and now I'm trying to get the wlan to connect to our router and can't figure out how to get it to work. My card seems to work, the network manager even finds the router, but i just cant get a connection. I followed the steps of the "Getting Your Wireless to Work" thread and these are the results:


- i messed around a bit with the network settings and might have cluelessly broken something (or broken it more)

- i tried a usb-wlan-card as an alternative, which didn't work either, but could possibly have messed things up even more.

I think the VPN auth has been passed at that time, the problem might about creating the VPN Tunnel.
