Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Internet In Campus?

Jan 22, 2010

I have a problem which is connecting automatically to my spwireless. On my windows, my schools provide me the disc which contains several .cer files and a automated batch files to copy the .cer files to the root folders. I can choose to use the other network but in using that, i have to manually connect compared to using the spwireless. Anyway, my problem is that, how do i add the .cer files and to where so when i connect to the network it will look there for the cert. Because when i manually connect, only one cer can be chosen.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To The Campus Network?

Mar 2, 2010

I recently went back to Linux on my netbook because Windows 7 was too laggy (1gb of RAM, go figure). I've never been able to connect to the protected wireless network on my campus without using Windows, though, so I was hoping someone could help me finally get that figured out.

The school has a how-to for connecting to the network using various operating systems, including Linux, here (scroll down to the bottom to choose OS). After following the guide through the CA certificate it mentions, the network manager tries to connect for a while then just sort of times out and asks me to enter the information again. Using Wicd, I noticed that this timeout appears to happen when trying to obtain an IP (after authentication).

My system: Acer Aspire One AOA150 with an Intel 4965AGN wireless card (installed by me a few months back, have had no problems with the card itself not working). I've installed Kubuntu 9.10 Netbook edition and done all available updates. My campus offers an unprotected "Visitor" network that I can connect to without issue, but they limit what you can access using the unprotected network so I need to be able to connect to the WPA2 one.

I've tried getting help from on-campus IT but keep getting told that none of them know how to use Linux, which makes me wonder who exactly wrote the how-to on their website... The guides on the website are for older versions of Ubuntu, but I figured they would remain applicable on a later-version Kubuntu install.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To A Campus Wi-Fi Network?

Mar 17, 2011

The more I use Windows, the more disgusted I get with it lol. So I would really enjoy using Ubuntu on campus instead of Windows, but I can't seem to get it to work. They have PDF files explaining how to connect with Windows XP - Windows 7 and Mac OS X, but nothing for a Linux distro. Here is the link to the PDFs [URL], and here are the settings I've tried to use to connect [URL] . I know that the CA is right (unless I need to us the Ubuntu version).

Ubuntu Networking :: No Internet Access Through Wireless Campus Network?

Feb 10, 2011

I am trying to connect to the college campus wifi network, but having difficulties in Linux.I am dual-booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10, and I use Google Chrome web browser on both. When I boot into Windows, my laptop connects to the network (as I can see from the taskbar icon) and I can (and currently am) connect in Chrome.However, in Ubuntu, it connects (or so the icon indicates) but Chrome doesn't load any pages.The campus network is unsecured, but once you open the browser, you are prompted with a log-in page (student ID and password) to actually connect.Here is my output for iwconfig:


wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:"sjsu_campus"

Networking :: "campus" Wifi On-the-fly "campus" Wireless Network?

May 3, 2010

discover HOWTO for an on-the-fly "campus" wireless network? I will be part of a large youth sports event spread over several acres of grassy fields. I need a wireless network for the event operations and administration. I want to operate a private wireless lan, "under the stars" with a few puddles of kiosks participating.

Some of my thoughts:I need some sort of antenna for outside use with wifi.

I need a primary wifi access point.I could use a wifi router & access point to connect with the primary for each kiosk puddle.I could use a pair of wifi router & access point boxes, with directional antennae, as point to point.phone and tablet and pda and laptop boxes, in the hands of staff,could use this private wifi lan for event operations.I could put a LAMPP or XAMPP server someone on this lan for event operations
The server could have a connection to the public internet somehow

If I used one of the linux open-source wifi box, hotspot images or similar, I could manage this lan as a group of steamer-trunk, drop and setup stations.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To Campus Wireless Network

Feb 15, 2011

I've got Ubuntu 10.10 loaded on my HP mini, and haven't had any problem with wireless connection before. But since I've started going to my local community college, I've been completely unable to connect to the campus-wide wireless network save for once. I don't know anything about the network other than that it has no encryption.

I have only attempted to connect, thus far, using Ubuntu's built-in autoconnector. Is there a way that I can see what issue it's having, maybe get an error output? The auto connector can't seem to negotiate a DHCP lease, it just times out trying to talk to on port 67. I can't think of why this would be, no one else I've talked to with a laptop has any problem connecting. Is there some, more sophisticated method of working out an IP address that Windows/Macintosh knows to do and Ubuntu doesn't?

Fedora Networking :: Wired Networking Not Connecting In 12 With Windows Internet Connection Sharing?

Jan 16, 2011

I just want to use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to connect to the internet. I have done a massive amount of troubleshooting, but some of it seems to contradict itself, and the only two things that I know for sure are that it used to work, and that my Ethernet cable is not the problem. When I use Terminal utilities like ifup and dhclient it seems that it can not determine IP information, but when I try to put it in manually, the "Apply" button grays out right after I finish typing it in. When I try to connect normally, in KDE or GNOME, the icon acts like it's connecting, then instead of having the connected icon, I receive a notification that "the network has been disconnected", and it goes back to the disconnected icon.

Oh, and by the way, I know that I could probably find a workaround, but I have limited resources, and this used to work. The Linux is a Dell desktop with Fedora 12 and the Windows is a Windows 7 HP laptop.EDIT: I hope that I didn't mess something up, but I accidentally used system-network-config to try putting in the IP address there, and ended up changing it back to the original settings, but the computer is now calling it Auto Ethernet in the taskbar icon, although sudo iwconfig in the terminal still calls it eth0.

Networking :: Strangest While Connecting To The Internet Ever Seen?

Apr 5, 2011

I had an ubuntu 10.4 box, I used it mainly for programming, virtualization & other stuff. I've installed this box about 1 month ago, working on it everyday. About 2 days ago problem appeared when I just opened up firefox for cheking my E-Mail. I typed : [URL]. & nothing appeared & I just seen the famous firefox page when a networking problem is around . I just wondered and checked the connectivity & the wire itself, but find no problem around them, while playing with firefox I just had a turned on virtualBox machine (Windows XP service Pack 3), I just checked the internet within vm & working fine, I checked my e-mail from vm (windows xp), I thought restarting the system might help to solve the problem but damn, problem didn't solved & still arounds Well, I searched through websites dedicated to linux networking & forums that might help, I did anything that faced to my brain , follow another people recipes but problem did't solved for about 3 days ! Playing with primary & alternative dns didn't help, I did my best about solving the problem, disabling ipv6 from both linux networking settings & firefox itself didn't help also . After that, I thought reinstalling the linux might help to solving the problem, but install a new version of ubuntu, 10.10, I tried it, install it but the holyshit problem still arounds ! I think this might be a bug on ubuntu distro, I tried Mint 10 & the same problem, reinstalling x64 version of fedora core & the same problem .It's interesting that the same settings for TD-8101G TP-Link working fine for my Windows XP, Windows 7 x64 & the problem is arounds just for my linux distros .As I said I checked the internet for the problem & found nothing workable for me. I thought it's better to describe the problem & maybe another people faced with that problem .

CentOS 5 Networking :: Not Connecting To Internet

Feb 27, 2010

I have a CentOS server that I can connect to over my local network. The computer I'm currently on is on that same network and can access the internet. My server can not connect to the internet. The network card is obviously connecting to the network since I can access the server locally with SSH or HTTP. While in the terminal for the server, I type wget google.com and the server can not find the specified host, so this leaves me to believe it can not access the internet.

Ubuntu Networking :: Campus Wifi Network Not Showing Up In Maverick?

Oct 12, 2010

I upgraded to Maverick over the weekend from Lucid, and at school yesterday, I could no longer connect to the campus wifi network in my office. I have no problem connecting to the wifi network at home, and my phone still sees and connects to the campus wifi network, so I think the problem is with my laptop (Gateway T-6345u), which doesn't even detect the campus network. As of last week, it connected automatically, and now it can't even see the network.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Internet On Boot Up With AWLL6075?

Apr 19, 2010

I have an AWL6075 Golden N Wireless Mini USB Adapter from Airlink, and I'm running Ubuntu 9.10. (Kernel 2.6.31-20-generic) I've learned that in order to get this to work, I needed to download this firmware update: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/373876...8192sfw.bin.gz and copy it into /lib/firmware.I have also needed to download and install the drivers at http://www.filestube.com/f76673d157e2ab6203ea/go.htmlI've even Edited my connection to make it available to all users.This is great, and it gets my internet running. Unfortunately, I seem to have to make the module, and insmod the module 8712u.ko everytime I boot up. I know I had it set in 9.04 to be able to do this on boot up, but in 9.04 I didn't have to re-make it everytime.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Internet Through Network Bridge

Nov 13, 2010

I setup a network bridge on pc A, with windows 7 installed on it, using windows default bridging tool. I connected computer B to computer A and Im trying to connect to the internet through the network bridge on computer A. Computer B (client) has two OS's installed, win XP and linux(tried with different distributions, didnt work). On windows XP everything is working, when i try to ping the router (after computer A) it also responds. On linux system nothing is working, and im not quite sure why.

I set up linux to receive IP adress from DHCP, which is router in this case (behind computer A), same way windows XP was configured. I decided to ask here, because I couldn't find anything on the net. My guess is windows-made bridge supports only windows-OS's but that would be kind of strange (its just a software bridge).

Networking :: Connecting To Internet With Lubuntu Through Ubuntu Machine

Apr 29, 2010

How to create some sort of network, which would mean that one computer (Lubuntu in this case) is connecting to internet through second PC (Ubuntu), which is directly connected to cable, so maybe I get some manuals and tips. The computer which is connected to internet have two LAN cards (Realtek 8139 and integrated nVidia MCP65), Realtek card is connected to the internet provider cable (internet is tied to my computer's MAC address and uses static IP).

Second computer have also a Realtek card and it's connected to first computers integrated card. Anyhow - I've put on the first computer eth1 (which is integrated MCP65) IPV4 setting to "Shared to Other Computers" and IPV6 to "Link-Local Computers" and while I was having Windows XP on the second machine, setting on it (the XP machine) DHCP (or how was it correctly called, when system automatically resolves or gets the IP and the rest what it needs?), second computer was receiving Internet signal and I could use both of them in such way.

Now the second computer is with Lubuntu and I thought that I could do the same way as did on XP - just put in Network Manager for the connection (eth0) everything to automatical and there will be internet, but there aren't and the manager shows some kind of "Automatic Ethernet" option, which after activation also doesn't do anything. What do I have to do, to make my Lubuntu machine to recognize Ubuntu's eth1 and to use it as a source for Internet?
