Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Share Network Connection With Roku

Jun 24, 2010

I seem to be having quite a big problem with Internet sharing. After doing a clean install of Lucid, I tried to set up a shared connection between my computer and my Roku set-top box. I have noticed that I am only able to set up a connection profile in Network Connections under the Ethernet card with the active Internet connection. That is, whenever I try to set up a connection, I am not given the option of using the second Ethernet card. Thus I can't share the network connection. Can someone PLEASE help me? The IRC has been completely useless.

Ubuntu Networking :: How Can I Share Ipv6 Connection To Home Network

Jul 25, 2010

I'm using Internet connection through local network, receiving white (global) IP, route, DNS with local DHCP server. Lately I noticed that my Ubuntu gets ipv6 autoconfiguration from ISP router, receiving global ipv6 address and automatically adding ipv6 route. I can access Internet resources using ipv6 connection:
I can ping inet resources using my ipv6 global address and access, for example, ipv6.google.com or URL..

How can I share ipv6 connection to my home network? Using ipv4 it's easy, I just can use NAT for this. But if I understand correctly, in ipv6 there isn't such thing as NAT, because there is no limit in ip addresses.

Ubuntu Networking :: Setup A Wireless Or Wired Network To Share Connection

Feb 25, 2010

I'm trying to set up a wireless or wired network (wireless would be better...) to share my connection with my housemate, as well as with some devices. The only guide I found regarding this (I must admit, I didn't have much time to put into research), was dating back to 2005, and although doable, seemed somewhat confusing. Getting to the point: is there a way (maybe a standalone program, or some kind of plugin) to share a connection?

Ubuntu Networking :: Choosing Router For 2 PC's And Add A Roku Box?

Apr 21, 2011

I've been planning for some time to add a Roku box so I can get Hulu plus on my TV (and possibly Netflix later on), plus I do quite a bit of iso/upgrade testing during Ubuntu development (nearly three years now), and it would be very convenient to be able to connect both of my computers at the same time So I need a router. I currently just have an AT&T DSL modem, but I have super fast DSL (about 7,000 kbps down and 1500 kbps up), and it costs me about 60% of comparable cable service Anyway just a desktop switch won't help until I get a router set up. No doubt the easiest way to go would be AT&T's own router for $100 US:

I still have Win XP on one box (although it's nearly never used) and their "stuff" comes with an auto-setup disc that usually just works, but I've dealt with their "tech help" several times down through the years and as soon as you mention Linux they become almost mute OTOH I've been looking at less expensive alternatives:

[URL]

The Trendnet runs about $35 US and the Netgear runs about $42 US. As far as I can see both would just connect to my modem with a Cat5 ethernet cable and then to each device with additional Cat5 cables.

Debian :: Network Manager Can't Share Network Connection?

Nov 13, 2015

In Googling around it appears that the Network Manager used to have a nice simple (obvious, logical, straightforward, intuitive, easy-to-use... ... can you tell I'm a bit surprised that there's not a simple button to do this, it's pretty common functionality ) option in the IPv4 tab called "Shared to other computers" allowing you to share your network connection with any computers connected to yours... kind of like this:

[URL] ....

Professor Google seems to indicate that this may have existed in Debian at one point but, I don't see this option anymore. How do I get it back (or is there another gui way to do this without editing the /etc/network/interfaces file... if there's no other way to do this... that's fine but I'd prefer an easy method of enabling and disabling sharing)?

What I'm trying to do... I have a Beaglebone Black connected via IP over USB. When I'm ssh'ed into the BeagleBone, I want to be able to use aptitude install to grab new packages etc... and that kind of requires access to the outside world. Everything I've found so far seems to to require a modification to the interfaces file but since (according to the interfaces man page) the preferred method is to use the network manager if possible... I'm trying to avoid that.

* It should be noted that I'm running sid with the experimental 4.3 kernel so... maybe in doing so I've shot myself in the foot?

Aug 28, 2010

My set up: Roku digital video player n1050 (it does not look like the ones in the manuals I have found online, and there was no manual in the box--this only has the red, white and yellow jacks on the back, plus the places to plug in the ethernet and power cables; reset is on the bottom)

Wired network Netgear wnr854t Router assigns ipaddresses to devices attached to it Production environment 7 computers regularly access this network wired 1 additional computer regularly accesses this network both wired and wireless I am posting this going through this router, so you can see it is working

I can telnet into the Roku box using telnet 192.168.0.7 8080, but I do not see anything I can do from there.ng knowledge!

Networking :: Use The Laptop With The Wireless Connection To Share The Internet Connection?

Feb 4, 2010

I have two linux laptops. Currently, I'm using both of them at work, side-by-side. Now the problem is, I'm connected to a wireless router, but the wireless only works on one of the laptops. So I'm stuck with one laptop that has no access to the internet. Both machines do, however, have working ethernet nic cards. So, I was wondering if I could use the laptop with the wireless connection to share the internet connection with my other linux machine and access the internet on both of them. Or as an alternative, just use the internet on the machine without wireless and be able to switch back and forth, that would increase my productivity like 30 fold.

Ubuntu Networking :: Could Use LAN And Share Internet Connection Between PCs?

Jul 10, 2010

I'm trying to connect two PCs to the Internet (or at least to create a local network) using a crossover cable. My main PC (the one that has two ethernet adapters and is connected to the Internet) runs Windows 7 and my secondary PC runs Ubuntu 10.04.Unfortunately, it doesn't work. Both systems send out packages but don't receive anything. How can I possibly fix this, so that I could use LAN and share the Internet connection between PCs? Does Windows need special software to recognize Ubuntu (or the other way around)?

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Share IPv6 Connection

Nov 15, 2010

I have a small wireless network running IPv6 connected though a 802.15.4 usb stick, and a network connection through eth1. I can access the nodes on the wireless network from my computer, but not from any other on the wired LAN. Also the nodes on the wireless cannot see even the address of eth1. I'm guessing i have to forward all packets from the wireless to eth1 in some way, but am unable to find an guides for this with IPv6.

Ubuntu Networking :: Share Wifi Connection With A Macintosh?

Jun 7, 2010

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 running Jaunty Jackalope. I have a good working wireless connection.

My daughter has a lot of iPod tunes stored on an old white chiclet Macintosh, which she needs to download to her iPod. Because the iPod is "corrupt" (meaning it was last connected to Windows!), we need to connect to internet.

Simplest way to do that would SEEM to be to plug an Ethernet cord between the two machines and let her Mac access internet via this Dell.

My experience with ethernet is, either it works out of the box, or it doesn't. If it doesn't, I have no idea how to make the connection work.

What do I have to do on BOTH the Jaunty and OSX sides to make the connection?

Ubuntu Networking :: Error Trying To Share Internet Connection

Feb 19, 2011

In the documentation at [URL] it says

Quote:

Note: To clarify the above example here is an example configuration that will work - * 1. You are already connected to the internet using your wireless on port wlan0 * 2. The ethernet port eth0 is connected to the PC that needs to share your internet connection (or you could wire eth0 to a router for multiple machines)

I am trying to do precisely this, with my laptop aready connected to the internet via my HTC Hero on port usb0, and the router needing to share the connection plugged into the laptop's port eth0. Port eth0 is set to "Shared" as the doc describes.

The router in question is an old WiFlyer pocket AP, which has a fixed and unchangeable IP address on its wired port of 192.168.7.77. What happens is that when I plug it into the laptop's eth0, NetworkManager pops up the "eth0 Connected" message...and then "Disconnected"...and then "Connected"...and then "Disconnected"...etc.

I want to be able to share my cellphone's Internet connection through the laptop and out into the WiFlyer so that others can get a wireless connection in a location that has no other form of connectivity.

[Rooting the Hero and making it an AP won't work: it can't run Froyo and it can't broadcast wireless.]

Ubuntu Networking :: Looking To Share Internet Connection Through Ethernet

Aug 5, 2011

After some fiddling around, I have come to the conclusion my current wifi access point hates my other computer's Broadcom chip or the drivers thereof. So, my current idea is as follows. I would like to use my netbook to connect to the wireless network, and then connect my other computer to it through ethernet. My netbook is dual boot XP and Ubuntu (think Ubuntu is a version behind) and I would be fine to set up this sharing in either and just leave it on as a repeater station. My other computer is dual boot XP and Fedora and I would prefer this work to allow me to have network in both. I have a straight-through cable and have verified that my network card supports the automatic crossing over behavior.

Fedora Networking :: Share A GPRS Connection?

Apr 25, 2009

I have two Desktops. Both running Fedora 9 and connected to each other with a crossover cable. I have a GPRS connection via a USB bluetooth Dongle. I can connect thru rfcomm on Kppp. Assigned static ip's 192.168.10.1/2 and can ping from one computer to the other. So far so good but now I want to share the internet connection between the two computers and run into a maze of gateways and DNS and iptables and am spinning around with no clues. Some of the things I do not understand are

1. What gateway does one assign when your computer directly connect to the internet through a GPRS and not through a NIC or router??

2. When I try to load the shared NFS folder, why does it say "could not load the location: internal error"?

3. Is there somewhere I could get a step-by step instruction??

Networking :: 3G Modem On Debian Try To Share Connection With Lan

Mar 21, 2010

Generally I don't like just asking stuff but just can't crack this one. I got a debian machine. My internet connection is on a 3g usb modem. It connects perfectly. Then I downloaded DHCP 3 and then configured it so I got 172.16.0.0 network address with gateway on 172.16.0.1 (set by DHCP) 172.16.0.1 is also the eth0 address and is assigned as fixed by DHCP. With the modem not connected the other PC connects no prob, gets the default gateway and get assigned an ip by DHCP and there is a proper connection with APACHE serving pages. So it is all grand. Where my prob comes in is that I am not able to get traffic from the modem through to the other PC, and at times the modem would not be used as default connection with eth0 up. Restarting the modem fix this but then also drop the assigned gateway address.They are connected directly via crossover cable. The modem is setup as ppp0 according to ifconfig and then ethernet as eth0 and I tried some masquerading allowing all traffic through but does not seem to do the trick.
