Ubuntu Networking :: Getting A Wired Broadband Connection To Work ?
Feb 8, 2010
We finally got internet in our apartment in China, but my husband was the only one home when the guy came to set it up (on his windows machine).
He connects by plugging in, then clicking a desktop icon labeled "Broadband Connection" where a box pops up with a username, a password box, and some buttons, one of which says "connect".
I am trying to figure out how to set this up on my netbook so that I can use the internet at home too. I have a feeling that even if I had been home when the setup guy came, he wouldn't have had a clue what to do with mine anyway.
On the WinXP machine: Connection Properties state that this is a PPPoE connection, with TCP/IP, QoS, and Deterministic Network Enhancer all checked. Under the security tab, unsecured passwords are allowed.
I've recently purchased a new laptop of ACER(aspire 5750). I've installed two OS(win-7 & ubuntu 10.04 LTS). Till now, on my ubuntu every things working fine except i can't able to access my cable model broadband.
I open up the "Network connections" section & at there i saw it can't able to detect any WIRED connection.
I've checked my all my ethernet jack & all rest of connection. All r perfect. But, don't know why it can't able to detect my broadband. But, in windows section, broadband is working fine.
I'm using RedHat Linux. In my friend system have Winxp. I have 2 LAN Cards. I'm using wired Broadband internet. So i want to share my internet connection to my friend system through another one LAN card. How can i do this
I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 1410 notebook running Windows 7 home edition. I installed Ubuntu 2.3 and my wireless and network LAN connection is not working. I saw on a link in this forum, someone was having similar problem. However, when i tried the solution that was recommended/suggested to the person, it did not work for me.
what I can do to get my wireless and wired connection to work?
I have a HP Mini running Ubuntu Desktop 10.04, and I cannot get a wired connection to work. My network card is "Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)", and I have the restricted drivers for the card installed. Wireless works fine, though.
I recently tried out OpenDNS on my wired connection, however after it was slower than faster, I tried going back to the original settings that the connection had (so basically to Automatic DHCP).
For some reason the connection wouldn't connect again. So I thought I'd try deleting that connection and creating a new one, but this still doesn't work. When I try to connect using NetworkManager it just does the 'loading' icon for 30ish seconds then says disconnected.
My wireless still works fine however.
I'd very grateful as i'm worried i've messed up the ethernet port and I need it for when I got University in a couple of weeks
I am having difficulties connecting to my router with my Ubuntu 10.04 laptop. Wireless works fine and I can get a wired connection when I boot into Windows 7. In Network Connections there is no Auto eth0 listing and when I create a wired connection, as soon as I enter details, the 'Apply' button grays out! Am I missing some permissions?
Here is some terminal output: ifconfig Code: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:23:5a:d2:1f:13 inet addr:192.168.1.67 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::223:5aff:fed2:1f13/64 Scope:Link
These days I wanted to connect to the internet on my laptop using a wired connection. When I inserted the ethernet cable, I was surprised to see that it doesn't work on Ubuntu 11.04. So I decided to boot into Windows and see if it works or not. And I found that it works without problems on Windows.
I cant get my wired internet connection to work. The command 'dpkg -s pppoeconf' returns ' installed ok installed'. My connection is through a router which is probably in a semi-bridge mode and I need to dial a connection to get the net started. The connection Auto eth0 is setup properly with the correct cloned MAC Address (that of my laptop).
I've also executed 'sudo pppoeconf' and ran the whole series of steps which towards the end said that my connection will be set on boot. However, the net doesnt work directly and I dont know how to dial manually either. 'sudo ifup eth0' returns 'interface eth0 already configured'. I tried some 10-15 threads but none worked. Ubuntu is handicapped without internet.
I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 using Wubi through Windows 7. It seems to be working but it will not connect to my wired internet connection. It tells me there is no wired connection, when there is. I used sysinfo and its not showing any network adapter or controller. I have a board with nvidia nforce go 430, could it be a driver issue. It works fine in windows though. Tried using a wireless adapter and all is working. But why doesn't the wired ethernet connection work.
As of now, my internet works fine when connected with an ethernet cable.The problem is it doesnt seem like my wireless is working at all.The led light is orange, (its usually blue when it connects) and I cannot see my home dsl network.Is thereany specific troubleshooting steps I should take?HP dv6000 laptopwireless card: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN
After i install it i lost my internet connection . i got a message " Wired Network " " you work offline ". i use cable ADSL ,.... my Pc information HP Pavilion 6700 running with both Window 7 & Ubuntu 10.10 note... my network connection work correctly on W7.
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 into my compaq notebook. The problem is that I am not able to connect to my wired broadband internet.
Here are the details of my attempts so far: 1)"ifconfig -a" gave 2 devices eth0 and wlan0. 2)"pppoeconf" was unable to detect any ethernet cards. 3)Each time I plug in the LAN cable , the network icon would say "connecting" and ultimately result in "disconnected.Now in offline mode".My ethernet device is Realtek PCIe RT8101E/RTL102E (rev 02).
I also tried to install the realtek driver though I was not confident whether I did it correct.
I am fairly new to linux and I just bought a new computer. I have a dell inspiron N4010 and I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on it. I then was unable to connect with a wired connection or wireless. I am sure this is a driver issue I just don't know how to get the proper drivers. If I put my mouse over the wireless icon it says networking disabled. But the switch to enable networking is on the keyboard
I have just setup Ubuntu on my Dell Laptop a Lattitude C640 with a 3Com 3c905C Tornado Wifi Card. Well the wired and wireless do not work. They try to connect then bang no connection. I would be able to make some headway I think but I have no basic skills with Ubuntu. I have mastered how to get info from the terminal but how the heck to you edit a file? How do you get to that stage?
I have bought reliance netconnect broadband+ 3.1 Mbps connection. I am provided Huawai EC1260 device to make the connection.But using ubuntu 9.1 I am not able to make the connection work. I have tested the device in windows XP and it's working fine there. I don't want to use windows and desperate to establish the connection in Ubuntu 9.1.
I have problems connecting on the net with my ubuntu. My driver is Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 AirForce One 54 I can see access points and i connected to access point called Zone 9 but the problem is that i was on XP entire life and i was connecting via broadband connection that requires username & password after connecting to access point So tell me how do I connect to internet on this ubuntu stuff
I have a strange problem with my mobile broadband connection. I hope I am not the only one (so it will be fixed), but since I haven't found any others having the same problem yet, I am not so confident.I started using mobile broadband, via a HUAWEI E1762 HSPA USB stick since Jaunty. I've had the same problem in jaunty as I do now in Karmic. Although in Karmic, i've had additional problems (that problem i've found listed as a known bug).The problem is that when I get my mobile broadband to connect, it is sometimes, somehow, not fully connected. Symptoms are as follows:
1. panel icon shows connected and good strength (good) 2. skype connects, and I can chat and voip (good) 3. ping does not work (bad)
i recently installed ubuntu 10.04 in my laptop. everything is working fine except for my mobile broadband connection. i use a huawei ec1260 USB 3g modem to connect to the net. the OS detects the modem fine and the network manger applet prompts me to set up the connection as well i.e entering the username, password, number to be dialled etc. however when i actually try to dial the connection the applet icon flashes for a long while and a notification pops up saying connection disconnected. has anyone come across same kind of problem and solutions, if any.
Earlier i used the same modem in in karmic i was able to connect to net and even now i am able to connect using the modem in windows 7 as well
I use a Huawei E 1550 mobile connection, which worked fine in Ubuntu 9.10.I've got it working okay in 10.04, having installed modeswitch. However, it will not automatically reconnect if it drops out. I can force a reconnection, only if I remove the dongle and then plug it in again. Although it shows in network manager, clicking on the list entry for the dongle, just produces a disconnected dialogue message. The only way to get it to reconnect is to remove the dongle and plug it in again.I know there have been a few posts about getting mobile dongles to work in 10.04, but I can't see any solutions to this little issue yet.
How to connect Ubuntu to the Internet through a broadband connection? I decided to give Linux a try, and I picked the Ubuntu variant. I have some problems with the Internet connection though. I have a broadband (modem-less) PPoE connection, and all the info needed in order for me to connect are the username and password (which I have).
I have attached the screenshot of the option which I select in Windows for making the same internet broadband connection. I am unable to find the same option in Ubuntu 10.04. Till now I was using the Pppoe Dialup. But now I am unable to configure this one.
i downloaded ubuntu 10.10 for learning purpose. All goes well, i installed it successfully. The problem which i face is that when i connected my mobile broadband device, ubuntu detects it and i have succesfully made the connection. But the network Manager is showing "disable" Mobile Broadband connection. I tried to put a check on Enable Mobile Broadband but can't check it. So i can't access Internet in ubuntu. I think some offline package installation should be there to resolve the problem, or some console commands. I tried to use the (wvdial) which i use at Backtrack. but i think ubuntu did not have.
I just installed Ubuntu in my PC and I tried to connect to internet using broadband connection. I use a ADSL router with WiFi access point to connect with network and dial my username and password using my computer to connect to internet.I could so it easily on windows 7 from Network and Sharing center and Setting up new connection or network and connect to internet using broadband internet.How can i do it with ubuntu 11.04 ?
