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 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.
Im using Fedora 14, and I use mifi2372 for wireless wifi. The device is new and it will not connect to my laptop. Im sure the device is okay however I dont know about my laptop. The switch that turns on wifi does not turn blue.
I've been running ubuntu for about 6 months, so i'm still abit of a newbie at linux but heres what im having issues with:I'm having troubles connecting to the internet on ubuntu, i have no problems connecting on xubuntu on the same machine. I can connect to my network but i cant access the internet on firefox or snaptic or any of that, but the weird thing is i can successfully ping address' in the terminal. I can also connect to my router config page in firefox using 192.168.0.1.
My internet worked perfectly about a month ago on this ubuntu install, so i cant figure out what i did to make it stop working. I think it may have something to do with the/etc/resolv.conf file because it only exists as /etc/resolv.conf.tmp and when i run "sudo dhclient wlan0" (or eth0) it says:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo dhclient wlan0 Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client V3.1.2 Copyright 2004-2008 Internet Systems Consortium.
After forgetting my wifi router password, I had to reset and reconfigure the router. I enabled WEP, and after I typed the password, the computer now recognises it automatically. But I can't connect to the internet no matter how long I wait. (The wired internet connection works fine.) How can I get the wifi to connect to the internet?
Just got a secondhand Asus EeePC 100P netbook, fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10, and while I can connect to my wireless network and access the router through the browser, I can't connect to the internet. Pinging any other sites, either by domain name or IP, doesn't work. I've tried various things suggested in similar threads (putting in the DNS server info manually, disabling ipv6, restarting about a gazillion times), but nothing's worked so far. (My other computer, a Mac, can connect just fine.)
Attempted to install ndiswrapper, failed miserably, and I'm not sure if that's just for situations where the wifi itself doesn't work?
I'd be very grateful for any suggestions.
Here's what's under Connection Information at the moment:Interface: 802.11 WiFi (wlan0)
I have a telephone connection of 1 mega internet modem huawei mt 880 SmartAX my desktop computer is connected via an ADSL PPPoE.I use Ubuntu 10.04 in Spanish and want to know how to connect a WiFi router TP-LINK TL- wr942nd to provide wireless Internet to other 2 PC, a desktop with a plaquet wireles G CNet CWP-854 and 500 series notebook olivetti olibook. The issue is that when I connect the router I can not even go online and do not know how to operate the network, I can not even connect the desktop to my internet provider
I know Windows forward and backward but I am so new to linux it's just wrong. I just installed fedora (like 1hr ago) on and old toshiba laptop with a WiFi PC card. Everything seems to work fine except. My Networks connects to my home Wifi network but it will not connect to internet. When it connects the IP address isn't even close to being in the same range as my other laptops and PCs. Like I said I'm new to linux but I'm wanting to learn. Any fixes for this issue? Which linus book is the best one to read for a beginner? Other then not connecting to internet I have no complaints.
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've finally managed to install Fedora 11 but I can't connect to the internet via wifi. Ethernet works fine though but when I unplug the cable and try to mess with the settings, I still can't connect. I'm currently using Mac iBook G4 and I can see that my wireless card (Broadcom wireless b/g) has been detected but I just can't seem to figure out how to make it work.

I powered up the acer aspire one zg5 and it goes to the first screen but does not connect to the internet when I press the internet button the wifi connection is fine and will download updates fine but will not connect to the browser, am so out of my depth as not familiar with this system , if I dont fix this will have to blame one of the kids.
My Netbook is ASUS EeePc HA900, I already use Ubuntu 10.04 is ok, nothing problems, then I upgrade to Ubuntu 10.10, it is still Ok. But when I upgrade to ubuntu 11.04, it have problems with Wifi, when I connect Internet via Wifi, just input the Password, it make my computer slow to halt, and have to turn the power off to shutdown the computer.
I was having a problem with cairo dock, asked on the board how to resolve was told to reinstall the visual driver for my monitor since I have an ati vid card since with the updated kernal u have to reinstall those drivers(didn't know that, I'm new to opensuse). I thought I did that before so I completely uninstalled it so I could then do a fresh reinstall but I wasn't paying attention and my laptop was unplugged for a while. I stepped away while the install was going on and my laptop died.
I tried plugging it in but had to restart my laptop when I did I got the command line rows and when I tried to start GDM it wouldn't start, I did so as SU. Attempted to connect to the internet via networkmanager and couldn't get wifi or wired to work. Anyway I can access my desktop visually just so I can start yast and install the driver or will I have to reinstall 11.2 or use the cd to repair? If so how do I use the cd to repair?
On this box I have Two seperate Ubuntu installations. Recently in both I seem to be having the same problem. I initially can connect to the internet as per normal and use any internet application. But after a period of time, sometimes just minutes, sometimes hours, even though the icon says connected, I cant update pages or send emails etc because there is no actual connection. My Physical connection is good I know - My Ubuntu laptop and Windows gamming PC connect fine during this period. So
Does this suggest an intermittent hardware fault or is there some thing in Ubuntu I can check to make sure that it is setup correctly and nothing has been corrupted? I am a lay PC person - I dont really want to be command prompting - Plug & Play and Point & Click is my limit.
I tried to install Xubuntu 10.10 Maverick as dual boot on my laptop. However when xubuntu is on, I can't find a way to connect to internet. When I try the 2 arrows on the up-right corner the option for wireless is deemed. I tried offline/online, that did not work either. when I click the firefox It says you are not connected.
I am trying to setup a dhcp server for my internal network. I have two NICs, a modem, and a wireless router. I have my server connected directly to my modem which is providing me with Internet access on eth1 and is working fine. I have dhcp and dns setup on eth0 which is connected to my router. The router shows that it is connected to the Internet but when the router gives a client computer an IP address, the client is unable to connect to the Internet but can connect to the router. I will post my configuration files below with my current configuration.
I had put my computer on standby and when i restarted it, it powered off within a few seconds. I turned it back on and after that i've lost connectivity to internet on Ubuntu 10.04.
However I have VMware (XP) installed and internet/network works on that. I'm a newbie with Linux.
Here are some outputs:
I have tried to edit the connection using System>Preferences>Network Connections. I entered manual settings for IPV4, but whatever i enter there, it doesnt get reflected when i type ifconfig in the terminal window. I tried setting it to Automatic DHCP as well. Doesnt work.
I am new to Ubuntu, but because of my familiarity with Vista's Command Prompt, I was able to adapt easily.But there was a problem. My WiFi card didn't work. As it turned out, I was missing drivers.So I plugged into my dad's Gigabit Ethernet port and got ndiswrapper.That worked well, and my wireless card is working. The problem is that I can access the network in my house, but not the Internet. Everybody else (running Windows) can access the Internet wirelessly. But I have to steal my dad's wired work line. Is there any way to solve this? info about my computer, here it is:
OS: Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala Computer: (Laptop) Dell Vostro 1000 Wireless card: Dell 1390 wireless Router: Netgear... some model or another
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.
