I just installed the XBMC from the XBMC live CD. I want to configure it in a way to auto-connect to internet. (my router is wpa-password protected.)
i know how to save the password and auto connect to internet from gnome GUI but not how to do it from command line. what should i install, change or configure in order to auto connect to internet? (using command line)
How does one get the wifi to auto connect upon start up, instead of having to manually select it every time i log on? I think the following script is what i need but im not sure where i would even need to install it.Automatic WLAN Picker Script
The auto connect feature of NetworkManager Applet (version 0.7.997) isn't working on my system. If the WiFi connection dies, Network Manager doesn't detect that the connection has been lost and try to reestablish the connection. I have to manually click on the WiFi hotspot to reestablish the connection. This appears to be the case both while the computer is running and when I first boot it up (i.e. when booting, if the first attempt at establishing a WiFi connection doesn't succeed, Network Manager doesn't retry or try another hotspot).Is this "normal" behavior for Network Manager? If not, does anyone know a fix? Here's some more info about my system:
We just got a new router and ubuntu wouldn't auto connect to it. When I tried to click on the network manager icon in the panel, it was all glitchy and wouldn't work. Then, I removed it from the panel thinking I could just add it on again. I was wrong. Is there any way I can unremove it?
I have noticed that a common issue to several distros is the fact that the networking subsystem doesn't automatically detect the link if an ethernet connection is disconnected and then re-connected to the NIC after boot. If the ethernet cable is connected after the system is up and running, nothing happens - ethtool eth0 shows link detected: no, and you have to restart the network service to let the NIC know that there is in fact a link, and actually connect. I have a Fedora14 (KDE) box with a brand new Asus motherboard with embedded NIC. Everything works great except the auto-detect of a freshly connected ethernet connection if the link is down to begin with.
Am I missing a ethernet link sentinel utility or something, or is this just the way linux works? I have done plenty of research on plenty of posts, and it seems this is a common problem, with no solution other than manually or programatically restarting the network service in a script to detect the link after a disconnect.
I have only had a few weeks worth of experience with linux, so I'm probably considered a newbie at this but I felt like giving it a shot. I just configured my new Toshiba Satellite A505-S6969 to jaunty. Most of the transition is going well but I'm stuck with a few issues, one of which is getting my wifi to work. Right now I'm working off of an ethernet cable.spci returns

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 just downloaded the lastest version of ubuntu to my compaq laptop. I then proceeded to plug in my ethernet cable to establish an internect connection. Under wired connection, it says auto etho1 but, the computer will not connect to it and I have no internet connection.
I am running 11.04 and have a netgear USB wireless NIC. When I am logged in I can connect to the wireless network through the USB adapter without any problems.I wish to use the machine as a part time home server and so have installed samba, LAMP etc however when I start the machine the NIC is not activated until I have logged in.
In the past I have done this but only ever over a wired ethernet connection, never wireless? Can some one please point me in the right direction?
I am checking something out in my connection and i just wanted to ask, is there a way to auto-disconnect and connect from the internet, for example say I want to disconnect now and reconnect to the internet in 0.05 seconds, is there any program that does that?
Upgraded To Ubuntu 10.04 The Other Day. And when I first installed it everything worked great except for my sound card which I fixed. But there was no problem with connecting to my Router via an Ethernet cable. Then I updated the video card drivers, restarted my PC and it wouldn't connect. It would try over around 1-2 mins then tell me its disconnected. No green light activity on the router / network card either.
I've reinstalled fresh copies of Ubuntu a couple of times now, Hoping to get the default settings back. But nothing has worked since.
I looked around the net and found quite a few people had this problem on previous versions of Ubuntu but it would seem most of there fixes were for there Version, so it hasn't helped me.
Heres some info:
I've tried all the various things from dhclient to ifup/ifdown etc etc.
I've been trying to get and old PCI wireless card to work on Ubuntu 10.04. The card is a Zonet 1602. It was not recognized automatically.
I have been able to get it to work using ndiswrapper except that when the computer is started it does not automatically connect to the network. I can click on the network icon and select my network from a list and it will connect, including properly authenticating the network key.
I have worked through a lot of information on the web but much of it seems to apply to earlier versions of Ubuntu and some if it does not match what I'm seeing in 10.04.
There is a built in Ethernet controller on the mother board but I have disabled it in the BIOS.
Im using a Samsung R420/R470 laptop with Broadcom bluetooth and a Prolink PMO624B mouse.My mouse works when I add it as a new device, but if I off the mouse and on it again, the mouse does not auto connect. I have to press and hold the connection button under the mouse and reconnect to the mouse.The mouse says that it is linux compatible, so I guess its a problem with my bluetooth drivers.
I'd like to know how to configure Fedora 14 so my VPN connects and reconnects itself automatically, since the "connect automatically" thing I checked in the network manager doesn't work.Is there a way to make sure that everything uses the VPN, so when for some reason the VPN is disconnected the applications will wait for the VPN to reconnect itself instead of switching to the regular network ?Also since it's pptp VPN I tried to disable Ipv6 but I don't know how to check if I successfully did it, can you guys give me the command line to check that ?
I have a Broadcom 4312 wireless chip. I have use the STA drivers that Ubuntu recommends. I can connect quite easily just by clicking on the icon, so this is more than a niggle than a problem.
My network isn't protected as we live in the middle of nowhere (quite literally) and network theft isn't a problem. We also run a self-catering cottage, and let guests have free access to our network anyway, so it is easier for guests to access our network without me having to give them all the key. When I did use wpa, it would start itself up with the laptop, so I kind of know that this might be the cause. Is there any way I can fix it without encrypting the network?
I have installed ubuntu 32 bit version on my HCL netbook. I use reliance netconnect (Huwai EC 1260 or 168c). I have configured it and it works well. But the only problem is that I have to connect the netconnect device before booting. If I connect it when its ON, the networkmanager does not connect automatically. even on the right on the tray icon, enable mobile broadband option is not there.
Having played around with ubuntu a fair bit I decided to breathe life into an old thinkpad with a pcmcia wireless card, by following the minimal install instructions and using lxde window manager etc.. Everything works fine apart from the fact that I cannot connect wirelessly. The card picks up and lists connections but whenever I have clicked on a connection the dail spins and then it gives up.I installed network-manager and managed to get nm-applet appearing in the sysTray otherwise I would not even have known there was wireless connections there.
I was thinking there maybe some conflict with another network manager, does this sound likely?
I'm having an issue recently with Ubuntu 10.04 x64. Connecting to my wifi is not working. I believe it is some kind of issue with the router. On Windows 7 the only way that I could connect to the net was by copying the network profile to a usb flashdrive from another computer and loading it mine. The wireless signal just keeps attempting to connect.
I have Ubuntu 10.04 on my EeePC 1000H. I don't use this computer often but it has always worked before... I suspect an update did this to me. I've recently swapped wireless routers but all my other machines have been able to connect to the new router. I can see the SSID and the signal strength is high but when I try to connect to it, it just attempts for a long time then asks me for my password again. I am currently connected to wired network.
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 yesterday and my wireless didn't work so I searched a little and found a way to make it work; Uninstalled bcmwl-kernel-source and installed firmware-b43-lpphy-installer and b43-fwcutter. And it worked. But today I accidentally pressed the "turn off wireless" button on my laptop. I obviously pressed it again and thought it would work but it doesn't. Now I find networks and stuff but I can't connect to them. It tries for awhile and then asks me to enter the password which I do (it is correct) and then it tries to connect for a few minutes again and then it asks me for the password again.

I'm having a problem to connect to the network at home via wifi, open or protected. Using ubuntu 11.04, attached are more details. I've managed to get a successful connection on an open network at work.
I press On-button, Debian boots, logs in and automatically connects to the Wireless network AND! to my local pc via LAN. It runs an ssh server, so I can ssh into debian over internet and communicate with the local pc (send a magic packet).Here are my problems:
1) I don't how to log in automatically. This and this doesn't work. 2) I need a network tool that can manage multiple connections and has a reconnect feature. With the default network manager I cannot even connect to more than one network simultaneously although I have two network devices of course.
And I guess I can run all that in console mode, right?
I have a nifty new headset (a JawBone icon�the noise cancellation is incredible) and I've successfully connected it to my Karmic laptop (64 bit, for the off chance it makes a difference). The trouble is, I only occasionally want to connect it to my laptop; I mostly use it with my mobile 'phone.
The two devices fight over my new toy a lot, and invariably the laptop wins, contrary to what I want. It seems a pain to have to rediscover the headset every time I want to use VIOP or whatever, so is there a way to add a device to Karmic's Bluetooth list, but not have it connect whenever it sees it?
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.
