Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04.1 Desktop - Bridge Stops Eth0 Working
Oct 13, 2010
I am trying to get a network bridge configured but every time I make the changes and restart networking (or reboot) eth0 appears to come up OK but I can no longer talk to the outside world via it. With no bridge defined, I can talk to the web using either wireless or wired; wicd is configured to switch to a wired connection when available (got rid of Network Manager. It didn't recognise eth0(!)).
I want to use the bridge so virtual machines (LXC containers) can talk to the web when the machine is wired to the wireless router. Eth0 gets its IP address (192.168.1.4) via DHCP from the router and I want to bridge to another subnet, 192.168.154.n say, and the containers will have fixed IP addresses 192.168.154.101, 102, 103 etc.
Not sure if I've listed the specs of this machine before, so I'll do it again. 'm running an HP Pavilion 760n with 512MB of RAM and (I think?) a Pentium III processor... not sure on that one right now. It's currently running a laptop version of Ubuntu 10.04.I went to log into my online classes tonight only to find that the computer wasn't responding at all. I did a hot shutdown and restarted it, and now the system isn't detecting the internet connection at all. It should be noted that the connection was working perfectly fine earlier today, perhaps 6 or 7 hours ago.I know it's something to do with my computer and not my router, as I'm on my wireless network from a Windows 7 laptop and it's connecting just fine.
In viewing another thread,..lems+-wireless, I found a bunch of commands that it was said would be helpful diagnosing this issue. That said, below is the output of all the commands that I could think of.
Sudo ifconfig -a eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:e0:18:5c:45:7a inet addr:192.168.2.1 Bcast:192.168.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
client <--> wlan0 <--> computer <--> eth0 <--> internet
i have 2 network connections eth0 wired connected to internet wlan0 wireless (work fine) i have installed hostapd with madwifi and so on oki when i run hostapd the clients see the hot spot oki clients connect with wpa oki network manager run at demand not automatic (keep it for internet help) now i'm a bit lost what do i need is wlan0 give the client an ip (dhcp demand) create a bridge between wlan0 and eth0 steps to create a permanent bridge between wlan0 and eth0
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat 64-bit on my desktop with a wired internet connection (with no firewall). For the past 2 days, I have observed that1. Firefox randomly throws up errors like "Problem loading page" whenever I click on a hyperlink. When I click on Reload, the page loads up just fine. This has been happening a lot recently..and I do not remember updating anything consciously. By the way, ipv6 is disabled in Firefox.2. The network stops working all of a sudden (usually indicated by the Firefox error). The Autho Eth0 indication is active, but I am unable to connect to any external machine.
3. Needless to say, this error is manifesting itself in apt-get as well. I get "something wicked happened" errors all the time, and am unable to download or install anything.That this is not a problem with the ISP is obvious because I also have Windows (from which I'm typing this, ironically), which is able to access the internet.Is this a bug in Ubuntu 10.10?
I set up a virtual bridge for a virtual machine (qemu-kvm) using a qemutap interface:
Code: # brctl show bridge2 8000.0022648a3dcc no eth5 qemutap2 I can ping and ssh to the server ... Then I try to copy (scp) a file (2.8 M) to the server and, near the end, the copy stops and the server stops responding to ping and is not able to ping nothing except itself.
"ifconfig down ; ifconfig up" and the server is on line again.
I have a wireless network that is upstairs, i cannot run a cable down here, however i've got 3 boxes that i want to run as servers..
1. Desktop running 10.10 (the one with the wireless card) 2. Server running 9.10 (no wireless card.. is currently connected through a wireless B gaming bridge) 3. An old P4 that I will be putting 9.10 on and running as a server.
Take the Desktop that has the working wireless card as my normal desktop and also running as a passthrough for the switch to go to the other two while still allowing all of the port forwarding to the other two to be handled by the router upstairs so basically what I want to do is this
Everything i've come across so far has been for going from a wired router to turn a box into a wireless AP unfortunately i need the reverse.. a wireless bridge. if someone can point me in the right direction (or i'm not against hand holding if it's available.
I am very new to linux.I have a network camera which only has an Ethernet port but no WiFi. Sadly no Ethernet port is available close to the camera.
Therefore I now bought a raspberry pi and installed raspbian to create a bridge into the wireless network, for connecting the camera to the internet.I now played around with the interface- and bridge configuration but I have problems with it.This is how my interfaces file looks like:
(The WiFi is secured with WPA2 Enterprise)
Code: Select all# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
# Please note that this file is written to be used with dhcpcd # For static IP, consult /etc/dhcpcd.conf and 'man dhcpcd.conf' # Include files from /etc/network/interfaces.d: source-directory /etc/network/interfaces.d
The WiFi is connection works fine and I am in the internet using the WiFi.But I am wondering about eth0. The network parameters I specified are not the same as the parameters ifconfig tells me.Ip, Broadcast, Mask, nothing is as specified.It would be nice to give the camera a static IP that I can access it always with the same IP from the RaspberryPi.The Raspberry Pi itself gets always a new IP from the WiFi network. How do I get the camera into the internet using the existing connection of the Pi?
I want to set up a bridge using bridge-utils within /etc/network/interfaces like is shown here in this guide: [URL] The problem is that, at the same time, I want eth0 to have a specific static IP address. Right now I have a configuration for eth0. This guide tells me that I should not configure eth0 outside of the br0 configuration.
i installed and ran System Profiler & Benchmark ran a test. then i rebooted and turned off ACPI/PowerNow. at this point i realized my network card had gone down so i went back an turned the ACPI on. nothing changed.
I'm not sure what's going on, but I have two computers that both aren't working after I reboot them. When I boot up the machine and do ifconfig, eth0 is missing.If I issue $sudo ifup eth0 then the ethernet is working, but I'm not sure why I'm booting up without a connection. Even after $sudo ifup eth0The networking app that's in the taskbar is missing.looked at dmesg and it looks normal$dmesg | grep -i ethmy interfaces fileiface eth0 inet staticaddress 192.168.15.146netmask 255.255.255.0gateway 192.168.15.1
I'm having some problems with wireless, it works fine on boot but after a while pretty much randomly, it can be a few days or it can be a few hours, it stops working. I'm not sure which command would tell you what and it would take a little while to debug it because like I said it's random, but if anyone knows what to do please tell me! I'm on Lucid Lynx 10.04.Another something that's really bothering me (But not related to wireless) is that for some reason when I restart my computer, the top panel keeps changing the applets locations.
I have created a Samba share, using the fantastic Webmin tool. I have a network media player which can connect to my router, and then access windows (samba) shares. Most of the time, it works fine - it's able to stream HDTV wirelessly across the network. However, every so often, it just stops working ... the media player sees :
Network, then WORKGROUP, then FILESERVER-1 (machine name), then Media (share name), then Video (subdir, then TV_Shows (subdir), then MyShow.AVI ... just hangs
if I use the Webmin tool, I see multiple samba connections all from the media player. Restarting samba seems to have no effect. The only way to fix it, is to reboot.
logfile I can check, or a setting I can tweak to fix this issue ?
When it get like this, trying to access the share from a windows machine, just gives me an error saying it can't find the machine. But when it's rebooted, it works fine.
I have mapped the "nobody" linux user to "guest" which is what the media player is defaulted to login with (it's primarily sold as a "Windows" media player), and using Webmin I have assigned the "nobody" user read-only rights to the samba share. It worked fine for 6 months, until I added this new drive.
I have installed RHEL-5 (2.6.18-53) on my Desktop (ASUS Motherboard with Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controler 8168). After installation eth0 is not detecting. I downloaded R8168 drivers from Relatek site, but I am unable to install as it's throwing the following error.
I'm having the same Harker2010 's problem.Running 10.04 LTS on a Dell latitude D-820, and switching between lan and wifi worked OK until last upgrade.Harker2010's screenshots are also valid for my problem. I've tried everything I see on this post but the problem still there.
I'm using Easytether through my HTC Droid for interwebs running Ubuntu 10.04. However I also have a home network. However when I hardwire into the network via a D-Link router (Auto eth0) my internet no longer works. The same is true when I plug in my iPod. The Droid loses it's connection. What is the problem?
This should be easy for the Ubuntu Gods to sort out:
I have a Sabrent USB 802.11N adapter. (I am using 64-bit Ubuntu in all below)
I plug it into a 9.04 box and it works fine. Plug it into a 9.10 box. Network manager sees it and can attach to the network, but has 0% signal strength, no internet.
Rebuild the 9.04 box with a fresh install to 9.10. 0% signal, no internet. Try 10.04 Alpha 2, 0% signal strength, no internet.
Rebuild same box down to 9.04. Works perfectly. 100% signal strength. I do all updates and then the upgrade to 9.10 using the USB. Everything works fine until the reboot. Then, USB connects, but 0% signal strength, no internet. Oh! ifconfig says the wlan0 interface is up, but it has a random ip address.
I don't mind using 9.04 because for the forseeable future, the box is just going to count aliens for Seti, but my wife wants it off the counter and I would like to upgrade someday.
I have an Intel PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN [Shiloh] on my HP Pavilion dv7 running a fully updated Lucid (10.04).I can connect to the wifi on my smartphone and I have no problems at all.However, after a recent update I found myself unable to use my home wifi connection.Once connected, I can usually transfer about 1 MB of data and then nothing else will go through.# uname -aLinux lappy 2.6.32-23-generic #37-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jun 11 08:03:28 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/LinuxSince the home wifi router, a Linksys Wireless-G SRX, is a bit more advanced than the wifi capabilities of the smartphone, I'm inclined to think there is some feature being used that is now broken in the iwlagn driver.I've tried to disable the "11n" support with this:
I upgraded to the newest version of Ubuntu a few months ago, and ever since then, the ethernet connection to my router stops working when I restart the machine. It eventually comes back, but after varying amounts of time. Sometimes 20 minutes, sometimes 2 days.
Restarting the computer and cycled reboots of the router don't seem to have any beneficial effect, at least that I can detect.
The light for the slot on the router does not light up like it normally would, so it's almost like the OS doesn't even recognize the network card.
New Toshiba laptop dual booting with Windows 7. I really like MM 10.10 and most things are working great! Periodically I will be web browsing and I lose connection. At first I thought it was Firefox but if I try to disconnect wireless and reconnect it will no longer connect unless I reboot. My network is hidden but Ubuntu finds it no problem on a fresh boot and connects per my settings and it is not a network problem since I can connect to Windows all day long and the rest of the family never has problems.
My wirless device is: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8191SEvB Wireless LAN Controller (rev 10)n and all OS updates are applied that I can find. I am thinking about un-hidding my network since years ago that used to be a problem with Redhat and even early Ubuntu but beyond that I cannot think of what else to try.
I'm currently working with Ubuntu 10.10.I wanted to add a default route to a gateway named ppp0.I did it with the command> route add default ppp0It works ok. But then from time to time it suddenly stops and I have to go back again to the server and retype the command. I'm clueless as to why is it happening. I can assure no one is working at the server or doing anything over there.Does anyone know causes that might be triggering route default to stop working?Btw where is the best place to add this command so it will be executed automatically on start-up and without needing to login to the server?
i am getting some troubles with WiFi. I got a Lenovo G550 with a BCM4312, at first i found some troubles making it work but i managed to find a proper driver and it is working "fine" Every 5 minutes or so my WiFi freezes and internet stops working. I don't get disconnected from the network, but until i don't reconnect to it, internet will not work.
Rare thing is, i realised that this happens ONLY when my notebook is plugged in. When it's working on battery, this does not happen. If i use it on battery it works for 30-40 mins (or more) and 3 minutes after i plug it in, it just stops working. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10, if there is any information i could give, just tell me. I also have a Windows partition and this does not happen there, either plugged in or on battery.
I have a Trendnet TEW-649UB Wifi N dongle, and I'm using the latest Realtek firmware downloaded from their website. It works ok, but everytime, after an hour or two, the blue light turns off and the dongle stops working. I have to unplug it and plug it back to bet my network back up.
My Ubuntu when i start it up, go to the wireless networks , try to connect to my network it trys to connect stops than says disconnected. My internet card is a Cisco Aironet wireless (idk the model number)
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bda:8187 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8187 Wireless Adapter
and everything works fine for some time. After a few hours or maybe less (if I push bandwidth to the limit) the Internet freezes. I can't even ping my router. If I disconnect and reconnect either the device or the connection via network manager , it does work for a minute only and then freezes again. If I restart Ubuntu entirely, it works again. But for a while...
It works 100% in Win7 and I have no problem at all there. But I am very annoyed that I cant have reliability in Ubuntu. I want Ubuntu as default.
It has something to do with drivers or an inner variable or buffer or something.
At least, is there any way to reset my network connection without rebooting the OS?
I tried sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart but it gives me: Ignoring unknown interface wlan0=wlan0.
This holds true in Transmission and NOT in Vuze. UPnP is enabled, ports are randomized and open each time. Pings to outside still work fine, but I cannot browse to websites (404 errors) when the app is running. I'm stumped, is Transmission locking all other in bound traffic/ports except the one it wants to use?
