I am completely new to linux in any flavour. I installed ubuntu 10.4.1 64-bit on my Gateway NV59 laptop as a dual boot with Windows 7. The installation went just fine. When it comes to networking, I can connect to my home network when wired directly, wireless is another matter. I can connect wireless in windows just fine, so the card is physically fine.
My set up is as follows:
Gateway NV59 laptop with Atheros AR928X PCI-E wireless adapter
Linksys WRT54G router using WPA2 Personal and a class C address scheme (192.168.x.x)
(If anyone thinks it would be necessary to post actual hardware specs of the laptop, I can, but don't think it really necessary). I have followed the Wifi Wireless Troubleshooting Guide found at [URL].
When connecting to my network wirelessly, I click the icon in the top right, and choose "Create New Wireless Network". When I input my settings (SSID - not broadcast, and security type and key - WPA), it then states I am connected under the "Wireless Networks" section found in that menu, and shows my network name with a strong signal and a computer/monitor icon. When I double-click the icon, it tells me I am connected and that the connection is active, yet the actual wireless icon on the top bar is grey, not white, and has a red exclamation mark on it. According to the steps in the troubleshooting guide, my wireless card is recognized and installed, with a driver of ath9k.
When I run lsmod, the driver is listed, therefore loaded, and ndiswrapper is NOT listed. I have verified that the driver is communicating with the kernel. When I scan for my router, it is listed under Cell 04, with the correct SSID and hardware address. There do not appear to be multiple drivers loaded, and my wifi is NOT disabled. When I check to see if I'm associated with a router, iwconfig shows my network ssid under wlan0, with the correct hardware address listed under Cell:, yet I cannot ping my router's internal ip address. At this point, I ran ifconfig, and for some reason, my wireless card has been given a class A address of 10.42.43.1.
When I try to assign an ip address via dhcp, DHCPDISCOVER runs for a number of intervals and then tells me "No DHCPOFFERS received", yet my router is using dhcp to assign ips with a pool of 50, more than enough ips for all the hardware in my network. When I run the command "sudo invoke-rc.d networking restart", I get the statement "Ignoring unknown interface wlan0=wlan0" - not sure what that means, but doesn't sound good to me, and retrying to accquire an ip address through dhcp still does not work. If I attempt to assign an ip address within my network range manually, I first run the command "sudo ifconfig wlan0 down", then just out of curiosity to see if the interface is really down.
I run ifconfig again, and wlan0 is no longer listed, but now there is eth0 (my regular ethernet interface) with no ip address. AND another interface is listed - eth0:avahi with the same hardware address as eth0, and an address of 169.254.4.42 - this seems to be the default address the OS will assign when it cannot get one via dhcp, but I have no idea why it has shown up as eth0::avahi... Anyway, after entering the command "sudo ifconfig ip addr 192.168.x.x netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.x.255 up" with the appropriate addresses, I receive the error "addr: Unknown host".
What I have NOT tried, are the following steps:
1. Change my router to an open signal (I would prefer not to do this, but will, if it is absolutely necessary for troubleshooting)
2. Try gtk wifi, or wifi radar
3. Try booting with kernel option pci=noacpi or acpi=off (not entirely sure how to do this just yet)
4. Try wpa supplicant (not sure what this is, just noted it was in the troubleshooting guide)
My laptop is Gateway M-6335 and I have problems with wireless drivers. I couldn't find any drivers for it. I searched in Software Centre and tried to google it but it didn't work. I have also problems with Bluetooth driver, but it's an other story. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10.
I am wanting a computer with an external dialup modem (ppp0 modem through a com port /dev/ttys1) to act as a gateway to the internet, forwarding internet traffic through ethernet (eth0 is set to static 192.168.2.2) to a router (the router is 192.168.2.1) where it will be broadcast to other wireless computers like my laptop (192.168.2.3). I've had this setup until recently when the gateway computer (the one with the modem) died. Now I'm replacing that machine with another box and an install of Ubuntu 10.10 but so far things aren't working for me.
Success so far:I have dialup access working on the new box. Took me a while to work out the configuration for getting dialup working, though the IP address is Dynamic (or it won't stay connected), "Check carrier line" is off, and "Ignore Terminal Strings (stupid mode)" is on in order to successfully connect and stay connected to my ISP. I also had to make my normal (non-root) user "lancer" a member of the "pid" group (the reboot) in order to use gnome-ppp as non-root. The laptop (192.168.2.3) is successfully connecting to the router (192.168.2.1) as I can see the router configuration page when I type http://192.168.2.1 into the laptop's web browser. This setup is unchanged from how I had it before when this was previously working and I don't want to change how the router itself is set up. What I want is to know what to fix in the new box in order to get it connected to the router (through ethernet) and bridging the internet through.
My problem is that whenever I plug in the eth0 from the gateway (192.168.2.2) to the router (192.168.2.1), Ubuntu's automatic plug-me-in network detection kicks in and I find my dialup no longer working through some kind of IP conflict (at least that's what I think it is). Maybe I don't have the "gateway" correctly assigned? (in the gateway computer for the ethernet connection, I had it pointing to itself as I don't know what to put for "gateway IP" as that is automatic So, just to check my connection, here I am pinging google (from the gateway computer which has the dialup modem) once a dialup connection has been made.
Code: lancer@lancer-desktop:~$ ping www.google.com PING www.l.google.com (126.96.36.199) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 188.8.131.52: icmp_req=1 ttl=55 time=179 ms 64 bytes from 184.108.40.206: icmp_req=2 ttl=55 time=176 ms 64 bytes from 220.127.116.11: icmp_req=3 ttl=55 time=158 ms
What do I need to do in order to make Ubuntu of my gateway computer stay connected to my dialup but also simultaneously share an ethernet LAN to my wireless router and feed traffic to the other computers from there? I have googled this but some of the most promising instruction (e.g. http://www.ubuntugeek.com/sharing-in...in-ubuntu.html) call for packages like dnsmasq or ipmasq which seem defunct now in Ubuntu 10.10. Other pages seem to suggest dual-networks "can't be done" in Ubuntu [URL].. (what!?! I had it before my other gateway died)
I am new in using Debian 5.0, my wireless doesn't work I make a search to know how to do it. So I open "Terminal" $ su (press enter) I wrote the pwd than when I wrote : # gedit/etc/apt/sources.list I found this: bash: gedit/etc/apt/sources.list: No such file or directory
I didn't know what to do, I proceed with: # apt-get install ipw3945 modules-$(uname-r) ipw3945d firmware-ip3945 bash: uname-r: command not found Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Couldn't find package ipw3945
I'm not exactly sure if this should be here and not in the Hardware & Laptops section, but seeing as my only problem is with WiFi, I'm guessing this is the right place. Under Ubuntu, my laptop (an Asus K42Ja, more details below) can see wireless networks normally. However, when I attempt to connect, it fails to establish a connection. Under Windows on the same laptop (dual boot), no problems are experienced.
According to this, there's a firmware bug in my wireless chip which causes connections to get dropped. I'm not getting connections at all, but I still tried the workarounds on that page with no luck. The router is a TP-Link TL-WR340G. My previous laptop, a really old one from 2003 running Ubuntu 9.10 was able to connect to that router without problems. The wireless card was Intel on that as well (but, of course, much older). The router is set up to use WPA for security. I didn't use WPA2 as I read something a while ago about problems with WPA2 and some Linux distros. Please correct me if I'm wrong here.
If anyone's curious, I'm posting this on Ubuntu, via an ethernet cable to the router mentioned earlier. Some tasty technical bits: dmesg (the latter half of the "timed out" messages is me retrying after double-checking the WPA key)
I have a windows 7 (64bit sadly) desktop computer with no wireless capability. Now before I go out and spend money on a wireless usb thing, I was wondering if I could use my laptop (Ibm think pad T60 running ubuntu 10.10 dual boot with crunch bang) As a wireless access-point and connect via Ethernet cable the laptop to the desktop (Probably through a modem?) so I can use the Internet for games on the desktop computer. (Games that wont work in wine, sigh). Just a note though, 64 bit windows 7 will NOT run anything.
I'm trying to make my F10 Laptop a wireless Access point.
When I 'iwconfig wlan1 mode Master' I get: SET failed on wlan1; Invalide argument.
wlan1 is a Netgear WG111v2 which worked as soon as I plugged it in after I installed F10. I don't know is it not supported? What is? Is there a different driver I can put on that will work in master mode.
I have two computers. The first computer has windows xp in it and is a member of the local lan with ip address 192.168.11.21. The second is my laptop having ubuntu 8.10.Both these computers are connected to each other via the broadband router which assigns ips 192.168.1.3 to my laptop and 192.168.1.1 to my desktop. I am able to browse the lan of 192.168.11.x via the desktop and I want the same possible on my laptop whose only connection is through the router to the desktop. Is there any way I can do it?
I've set up bridged networking so that I can have KVM virtual machines that are accessible from outside the host. I can access both the Host and my VM from other machines on the local network, and from the VM I can access the internet but from the Host I can only access my local network. Since I can access the local network and the same issue applies regardless of whether I use host names or IP addresses I suspect it's not picking up the gateway properly.
How do I go about allowing the VM host to access the internet while still having bridged networking so I can access my VMs?
What I've checked so far: Ping Google DNS (18.104.22.168 ) From Host: Destination Host Unreachable From VM: Suceeds
The issues are only with accessing things outside of my subnet. I can access other machines on the same subnet from the Host just fine.
I have installed fedora 11 64 bit on a new computer. I have no problems accessing the computers on my local network, but can not get past the gateway. The gateway is running windows XP with IP address 192.168.0.1 and is named "internet". When I boot the new computer in windows, there is no problem. Here is the output of some commands I saw in other posts with similar problems:
I have a simple system at home where a DSL router is used as a basic dhcp server with one port forward for ssh to a server. I need to allow my daughters, ages 14,12 and 10, to access the net and also email but I want to have complete control and logging. What I'm looking to do is set up the Ubuntu file server I already have on the network to act as a gateway and also add content management and logging as step one.
I also want to add an email server so that all the email comes into the Ubuntu server and then is allowed to be accessed by outlook on their machines after spam/content scanning for valid emails as step two. My question is what, if any, additional software do I need and what options do I have. I've played with dhcp servers at work but never got much beyond ip assignment and network booting so I'm unfamiliar with what is needed for content management and such. As to the email server I've never even played with this at all so I'm completely in the dark as to what I should be looking at to start with. I'm looking for directions, RTFM is fine but right now I'm not sure even WHAT manual/manuals I should be reading.
Does anyone have experience with the D-LINK DIR-655 gateway OR router OR wireless access point? On the surface, I like this box, but it is giving me grief. First, it wants me to use a win-dose CD configurator application. I use the embedded web page configurator. Next, there are several configuration wizards at the embedded web page. After trying the wizards, I went to the manual screens to tinker to get something working.
So what is going on? When a LAN client connects, I want DHCP to present at least two "nameserver" values ... which then make their way into /etc/resolv.conf The DIR-655 plays some nameserver games like caching and blacklisting and other things. However, I get some ad-vert page from "dnssearch" or "yahoo" or similar when names don't resolve. I really don't want this behavior. Network-manager does not report the connection down, however streaming anything stops or "reconnects", browsing times out, LAN side traffic seems to stop as well.
Have set the gateway server as 121.x.x.1. Which is the gateway server of the ISP. Now I can ping the local network, but cant ping the gateway or any other website. Also I am unable to access the router administration page.
a wireless router (box) is went stuck, I found that when it is stuck it uses strange IP local address remote address 10.112.112.112, today is also went stuck but this time the gateway was 10.112.112.112. I had to switch off, switch on teh router to function properly. I am using DSL connection normally the gateway is likie that 78.8.... and my IP (dynamic) like 78.8.240..... Is there any default meaning of 10.112.112.112 in teh net connections?
I have a Gateway laptop (model MT6458 ). You'll have to bear with me, I'm very inexperienced with Linux in general and especially the command line. Previously, I was running 10.04 32bit. I wanted to give 64bit a try, so I just fresh installed 10.04 AMD64. I was able to get my wireless working in the 32 bit version as seen on this thread: [URL]. After installing the 64 bit version, I attempted following the same directions as before, but it doesn't seem to be working.Here's some of what the terminal is telling me:
jeremy@jeremy-MT6458:~$ iwlist scan lo Interface doesn't support scanning. eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.
I've just installed fedora 10 on my Dell Inspiron 1525, and I can't connect to my wireless net. I know how to manually enter the SSID (and have no clue what a BSSID is), MAC address, and I know it's infastructure (well, it's not ad-hoc, so it must be).
The problem is, my router uses a 64-bit encryption protocol, and there's no '64-bit' key option under Wireless Security's dropdown. Is there any way around this, aside from either changing the encryption protocol, or plugging it in manually (neither of which are options)?
I have a msi cr610 laptop. I installed fedora 13 and tried to access internet but fails. I have wireless internet in my apartment (WAP& WEP). Can I buy a separate usb wireless adapter and plug in. Will it work? Will fedora detect wireless points?
Recently I have installed Fedora 14 on my other laptop. It's a dual boot with Windows 7. Everything worked perfectly fine, networking included, until my friend didn't accidently turned off the wireless by pressing a wireless button on the laptop. Since then the wireless on Fedora doesn't work. It does on Windows thought. I've tried restarting the laptop few times, but the wireless still doesn't want to work again.
5.10 Breezy configured as machine controller. Works great eth0 is a fixed IP to communicate with controller comms board. Not easy at all to alter - the comms board is hard coded to listen on eth0 for commands.
I can use eth1 as the default gateway and ping google.com, etc. But when I now attempt to communicate with the controller with netcat, e.g.
Code: echo !HH | nc 192.168.1.6 80
I obviously never get an answer since the request is passed via eth1. Using the -g option with netcat doesn't work either. I had a look at iptables but it doesn't seem to be able to do what I want. How I can still use eth0 as my communication port to the controller whilst eth1 is the default gateway?
After I put my laptop for a system update, some of it [sounds] works selectively in my browser when I am watching ..... but when I am playing some musics on my desktop, there's no any sounds coming out. Then I noticed that my Output is still in 100% but 0.00db and a Dummy Output.
I already tried some steps I saw in some threads that has the same problem too but it became worse, I no more [completely] sounds anymore.
I'm running ubuntu 10.10 on a gateway NV7915u laptop that has built-in bluetooth. However, ubuntu doesn't seem to be detecting it (it tells me that my computer doesn't have any bluetooth adapters plugged in).It seems that Fn F6 is supposed to enable bluetooth, but it doesn't seem to actually be doing anything
one of these "WiFi works in Gnome, not in KDE" threads, but I have been all over google and hundreds of threads across different sites and can't figure this one out.As mentioned, wireless is peachy in Gnome, unfortunately I like KDE and I'm more productive using it (when I have internet). Wired network works fine in KDE, and my network card
I recently switched from windows 7 to ubuntu 10.10 on my Gateway NV56 laptop. I previously had used wubi on it and had no problems, but with this installation it frequently crashes to a black screen and I have to reboot via the power switch. alt+sys-req+REUISB does not work, and I have lost a lot of data to this.
