I am unable to connect to the internet at work through the ethernet, previously working. I am not sure of the origin of this problem -- the result of an update or something that I did to the network settings.
In the NetworkManager applet is says Auto Ethernet is connected but I can't ping anything by name or ip address.
The wireless still works without any problem.
I have tried following some of the other threads on similar issues but the fixes proposed on them have not helped to date. And I may have mangled some of the settings files somewhat.
I am using BSNL broadband ISP and I am able to get network on windows os but not on my ubuntu.( I have a dual boot). I see Auto eth0 connected from the notification but when i am pinging [URL]... it says unknown host.
I have a program that attaches to an interface. I can run two copies of the program on two systems (each running one instance), connect it to a switch, say 220.127.116.11 & 18.104.22.168. In this configuration two instances of the program can communicate and everything is fine.
Now, to reduce cost, it want to use only one system with two nics connected to the same switch, running two instances of the above program, each instance attached to two interfaces respectively on the system. I have the following settings:
eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX inet addr:22.214.171.124 Bcast:126.96.36.199 Mask:255.255.255.0 UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 eth2 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX inet addr:188.8.131.52 Bcast:184.108.40.206 Mask:255.255.255.0 UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
My mom has ubuntu 8.04.2, and it does not stay connected on the wireless usb cards. I tried 2 different ones, 1 azio and 1 is something else. But both get connected, but they die out after awhile. I am at work typing this, so I will probably try to move my router up higher or something, but it is weird it cuts out like every 15-30 minutes, and it starts at like 4 bars.
She is running it out of a live DVD( I Know, you shouldnt use a DVD as your main OS) but she only needs the internet, and uses google docs to save stuff or a USB stick. Anyone know what might be the cause of this disturbance in the connection. It is a cable connection, and the main modem is in my room, and we got a netgear router( maybe the problem?). I tried the same exact system/live dvd environment at my work place and it held connection pretty good, but I believe it did disconnect a few times as well.
Im using a laptop with a wireless card inside it is a Realtek RTL8187B network adaptor. I go to wireless connections in the toolbar at the top of the screen and click on my internet modem and it says its connected. So I go to firefox and it brings up google. I try and do a search and it says something and at the bottom of the page it displays a button that says "Try Again". Im booting ubuntu from the cd drive so its not installed on my computer what should i be trying?
I have an old GX 159 Dell Desktop I tried to install Ubuntu 10.10 on it and it worked like charm the problem is when I connect my Alfa 1 wireless adapter and connect to the network it won't let me connect to the internet. Well I have been succeeded to connect to the weather center, but I can't update or open the Internet even if I have been able to open Hotmail.com after 2 minutes it won't open anything after that
Note: I didn't install the driver for adapter and I don't know how to do it because I tried before and I failed adding I used it on more than one distro. By the way it works perfect on Windows?
I had the wrong WPA password.[/blush] It appeared to me that it was connected OK at the physical/datalink level but apparently that was not the case.I've set up an old PC with the latest Ubuntu desktop and am trying to set up wireless networking with a TP-Link TL-WN722N. It only came with Windows drivers but from a thread elsewhere I got it to where it finds my router and connects with the password. However, it doesn't pick up its IP details. The router is working fine wirelessly on my phone and wirefully on my other PC.
I've edited /etc/network/interfaces with "auto wlan0" and "iface wlan0 inet dhcp" but after restart the wlan0 interface has no IP details. Originally the interface had IPv6 details but I cleared that with ifconfig. Under the Network Connections Wireless tab it has "Auto" followed by the name of my wireless connection so it appears to have connected OK. Now when I click Edit for that connection nmame, the IPv6 tab says Ignore and IPv4 says Automatic (DHCP) but Addresses is greyed out and the other fields are all empty.
i am running backtrack3 with vmware station in window 7. but the problem is when i enter iwconfig it does not show my alpha awus036h. it does not detect my alpha card. if anybody can help me regarding the same??? i have already tried to set it in vmware station menu bar vm=>removable devices to get my wireless but it showing a usb device connected... not showing my wireless..
I have Hughesnet (which sucks by the way, don't get it, I hate contracts). The FAP states that i can only download 375MB or it shuts me down, however, from 2 to 7 AM you can download all you want. so naturally i use a download scheduler. The only problem is that at night when i shut my laptop lid it disconnects from my router.
I've had a host of problems since upgrading to 11.04 Natty Narwhal, so let's deal with these 1 at a time.
I've got a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G60 laptop. Next to the power button is a handy wireless on/off button. This has always worked well with previous editions (9.04,through 10.10). first press toggles the wireless off, second press toggles it on.
Not so in 11.04. The toggle off works great, first time. But, it will not toggle back on. Not after any number of tries, not after restarting, not after booting into other OS's (9.10 and Vista) re-enabling it there and then booting back into Narwhal. to further complicate the issue, this feature bypass the network manager, so toggling the wireless off by the switch leaves me showing no wireless adapter in the network manager. I also restarted, switched from Unity to a Gnome session, but the issue still persists.
As my only network options are wireless, this has become a substantial inconvenience. ---- EDIT: so the network util is actually saying "wireless disabled by hardware switch". Also noticed it I enable it in 9.10, reboot to 11.04 (where I inevitably fail to re-enable it), then reboot into 9.10, it will initially be disabled. The key difference is in 9.10 I have the ability to enable wifi using the hardware button. It seems that 11.04 is remembering that wireless is disabled between boots. Is there a place it might be storing this value? If so, I may be able simply to set the value as enabled, since toggling that silly button isn't working. ----- EDIT 2: found this thread:"Wireless disabled by hardware switch" bug? - Natty seems to be a similar issue. I'll be following how that one develops, too.
I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 32 bit version(dual OS) on my 64 bit Pentium core2 duo 2.2GHz processor. Everything seems to be working fine except it's not getting connected to wireless network, although it's detected the network .It was working fine(got connected to wireless network) when I had installed the same OS via virtual machine.
The wireless usb adapter connects to my network, and the router is running on mixed mode, except that I cannot seem to get wireless 'n' connection speeds. Both are capable of wireless n. I check the connection info and it is always 54 Mbps. I have set the router wireless on N-only and I lose my connection.Is the standard driver for this usb adapter in Ubuntu 10.4 unable to utilize 'n' speeds?
I upgraded to 10.10 the day it came out, and haven't had any problems with internet stuff. My wireless card works without any proprietary drivers. Last night, the computer stopped connecting to the internet. I am still connected to my wifi network, but I can't do anything online. I had assumed that my internet connection was just down in general, and tried resetting the computer, shutting down the computer and then turning it on again, and rebooting the modem, but then my Xbox connected, and my laptop running 10.04 connected, so I'm confused as to what is going in. Any ideas?
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Dimension 4700 desktop computer. I just upgraded to 10.10 from the previous version after getting my D-Link wireless adapter back after loaning it out. My internet now won't stay connected. I can connect when I firstrn on the computer, with after 2-5 minutes it drops the connection and gives me the "Wireless Network Authentication Required" prompt. It won't connect again without unplugging the adapter and plugging it back in.I borrowed a Belkin wirelss adapter to try it, and it does the exact same thing. PLEASE can someone help me, I really need the internet up on the computer(Also, when I first got the adapter-- while running the old version of Ubuntu-- it would not recognize or connect at all and I spent 4 hours messing with drivers and settings to get it to work, which it did flawlessly. Until I upgraded.)
I've had ubuntu installed for a bit now and I want to start using it as my main OS, but the wireless internet will not stay connected. It will connect at first and if I'm lucky it will stay connected for around 15 - 20 minutes. I have a toshiba laptop with an AtherosAR5007EG internal network card.
Just installed ubuntu 10.04 on my Dell inspiron 1525 laptop. Everything got installed right, and I elected to select the sta driver rather than the B43 driver. After restarting, the b43 option disappeared. The wireless said it connected, but when i went to firefox it wouldn't load and said server not found. My wireless card is a bcm4312. Any ideas as to why this is not working?
I have installed ubuntu 10.04 and STA wireless driver. I am using a wimax modem, the wireless is connected (have IP addresses) but I do not have access to the internet.I also have installed a windows XP as a guest OS (ubuntu is the host) on vmware. By using a bridged network connection, I am able to access internet. So I guess the problem is related to the ubuntu wireless driver.
I just installed 10.10 on my HP dv2700 laptop and I can't get the wireless card to turn on. Here are some of my results. I get the same results regardless of which position the wireless switch is in and the indicator light always indicates that the wireless is off.

I am new with Linux and I am trying to figure out how to get my wireless working. My wireless LED does not switch on and it also does not work. In some threads I have seen people post some outputs of command from the terminal. I do not know how to copy this because I can not use ctrl + c in the terminal.
Just upgraded to the newest version of Ubuntu(unity), and my wireless isn't working. I have the 14e4:4315 Wireless Card so I followed this posts [URL].... And still have no wifi, when I click the icon in the menu bar it says under "Wireless Networks": "wireless is disabled by hardware switch", which ins't true because on my Vostro 1520, there is only one switch and it is in the on position. I've tried 3 versions of ubuntu and none of them work with wifi getting tired of it.
I installed Fedora 15 today and after a few very long hours finally got the broadcom driver to work and my laptop is now connected to my router. Yay! But now when I try going to a website in firefox it says server not found. I can ping anything inside my network but when I try to ping outside the network, for example google, it says ping: unknown host google.com. So I thought it might be a DNS problem but the network settings point to the router for DNS so I'm not sure what else could be wrong. All of the other settings look correct.
I have a WET54g bridge that I am trying to get connected to a wireless network that only allows DHCP. The idea behind it is that I would like to connect the Cat6 out of the bridge to a switch allowing multiple wired computers to connect to the wireless network. The bridge will easily connect to the network once I put the WEP key in, however, there is a kink after that. When I connect the Cat6 to my computer and request an IP for that computer, it self assigns. This tells me that it is not talking to the wireless network through the bridge.
I can not find which IP address the bridge was assigned so that I can talk to it. The sub net is 255.255.240.0 which leaves quite a few possibilities. I know that the bridge is, however talking to the wireless network because the light is steady on the front of it which indicates just that. One other thing to stack on is that I know that there is a "splash page" which comes up when any computer connects. You click on the agreement and then you are allowed onto the network. How can I get my computer to talk through the bridge to the wireless network?
I'm new to Ubuntu and i set up my wireless myself and I think I may have put in wrong settings. I looked through the forum and found these commands to put in the terminal from other posts. Could someone please see if they can fathom what I've done wrong. I have an wG111v2 netgear usb which works fine in windows but is very sluggish on Ubuntu. It worked for a while but since i have deleted and reinstalled my wireless numerous times I now can't get iternet at all. I have Ubuntu 9.10 on my machine which I duel boot with winXP.

When I turn on the computer, it connects to wireless automatically. That's good. But it doesn't stay connected very long. Especially if I turn on a p2p program or make a call through messenger. Then I get disconnected suddenly and if I want to connect again it doesn't work anymore. Network - You are now disconnected and that's it. Every time it happens I restart the system. I use an Acer Aspire 5738z laptop.
Is there away to view wireless access points without being connected. I am having trouble getting connected to my wireless DSL modem. I have no problems connecting with Windows Vista. Just can not get Ubuntu 9.10 to connect. iwconfig says no associated with access point. I can connect with ethernet cable.
