Ubuntu Networking :: How To Setup PPPOE Connection Over Wireless
Apr 22, 2010
My adsl modem is in bridge mode. I can connect to internet via pppoe . pppoeconf recognise the pppoe in eth0 and setup a connection and I can use it. How can I setup a pppoe connection using pppoeconf so that it uses wireless ? I set the wireless mode to bridge in modem settings. But, after that the access point stopped appearing in "aps in range" in network manager and I can't connect to it. pppoeconf also doesn't recognise wlan0 as a valid pppoe link . but dat is normal since i don't think it can check if wlan0 is pppoe without wlan0 being connected to the modem's wireless network. How can I connect to Internet with modem in bridge mode and connections via wireless interface of modem? Is pppoe over wireless even possible ? coz the datalink layer of wlan is not ethernet rite?
I am deployed to Iraq and the Earthlink ISP here uses PPPoE to configure a connection to their wireless broadband. His english skills are pretty good and from what I gather, he's got a DSL connection that he's trying to connect me to. He showed me how he does it on a Windows machine but I can't figure it out on my ubuntu laptop. That windows machine didn't need any IP addresses or server names. It only used a username and password to connect. Of course a strong wireless signal detected was also pre-requisite.
I know my laptop works because I've had great success with it here lately, just not on the Earthlink service.I see their wireless is broadcast and I can connect to it. I just can't figure out how to post my credentials and authenticate.I don't see a way of entering my username and password because I don't know how to install (or configure) for PPPoE.I did use the pppoeconfig and got to the part where I add my username and password, but most of what's going on up to and after that, I do not have the knowledge base to use. So I figured that allowing the defaults and recommended settings would be acceptableYou'll have to forgive me if I've asked another dumb question here. I'm another one of those Linux enthusiasts who is learning and I'm just not willing to switch back to MS just to get internet while deployed.
I have this strange problem. I can't setup my PPPoE connection through the kPPPoE. My ISP told me that this PPPoE has something like name server or something like that and i must use some other package to connect.
I installed ubuntu Karmic Koala 2 weeks ago, and while I have been able to connect to my school wireless, I have not been able to establish a PPPoE connection (username and password).After my most recent try, following this guide:-karmic.htmlMy wireless connection has gone as well.My network manager applet shows my school network, and shows that it is trying to connect, but it cannot establish a connectionand i apologize in advance for any information that i am lacking. please let me know, and i'll try to get the information.I'm running ubuntu on a separate partition, alongside windows XP home.
I tried setting up a adhoc wifi in my debian laptop, so that my other laptop running Ubuntu could connect to it. Though the access point made on Debian laptop is visible on Ubuntu laptop, I could not establish a connection.Then I used create new wireless network tab to create a connection named test1. Though it shows up on Ubuntu box, i couldnt connect to it.
I have a computer with both wire and wireless connections. Wired connection works fine, but I would also setup the wireless connection.(I also have a dual boot on this cumputer with WinXP where both wire and wireless connections works fine. So, wire and wireless configuration of the actual router is not an issue here.)
At this point I just want to know the main/overview basic steps of setting-up the wireless connection on the computer. Also if you could suggest any links to guidelines for these steps. I have been thinking about something simple like this, but I might have missed a lotInvestigate if Ubuntu finds the wifi-hardware - the installed wifi card.Investigate if Ubuntu have an installed driver for this wifi-card.Configure the Wireless Network connection, like SSID.Unplug wire connection and reboot.
I am trying to setup a wireless connection between F10 and a HP J6480. I dnloaded the linux driver hplip-3.9.2, disabled the SELinux and ran the install. When I choose method of connecting - wireless it would not discover the device. The only way was to enable the USB descovery. Doing so, the computer found the printer and all is fine. What am I missing trying to enable the wireless connection. Note, that during this process, the USB was not connected. Also, I dual boot with Vista and I can run the printer wireless.
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?
i am completely new to the world of Linux. But i want to learn it. My problem is , i cannot connect my PC to internet. I have a shared broadband connection which needs username and password to connect to internet. I don't know clearly but its something pppoe connection through wan mini port. or xdsl. I contacted my isp but in Our country (Bangladesh) a very few people use Linux or Ubuntu so they cant help me out. i searched many forums,, googled everywhere but cant make it working. i tried some command like "sudo pppoeconfig" but still dont understand. I know there are many people who know how to do this. My Pc configuration:
i have a routed and a PPPoE type internet connection, recently i tried a thing in terminal with the pppoeconf option since the network manager has problems with connectiong to the internet with a pppoe DLS connection, or anyway in my case it does not work. Ok i did the pppoeconf thing i inserted my pass and my user and left the program to do its thing, ok it all worked fine but then i restarted my system and suddenly the network manager did not want to recognize my network it hat as options some weird ipupdown options for connection and when i tried the pppoeconf thing again it did not work. what could i do to reactivate at least one way my connection, if i understood correctly the terminal type connecting and the network manager are two different things. now i am using my router and it should connect but the network manager still does not see the connection.
I have just installed FC11 from a DVD I created from an ISO.I also have FC10 (using here) and Windoze XP pro all on separate HDDs.I have not been able to configure my internet connection, when I try to create a new xDSL connection I get an error message; package needed 'rp-pppoe'.I don't now how to get the package without a connection.I have tried with and without Network Manager.
I've been trying to use gnome-schedule to create a scheduled task that would dial my pppoe connection automatically. For this I used "sudo pon" command (after configuring the pppoe connection using pppoeconf ). Although the command gets executed, but then it waits for me to enter the password. I want it to be automatic & shouldn't require me/anyone to authorize it. Is there a way to enter this password automatically for the scheduled tasks?
Also, I'd like to use network manager, instead of pppoeconf, for the same purpose. How can I set network manager to dial a pppoe connection at scheduled time?
I have an internet connection which requires pppoe setup to login with the specified username and password ip address is dynamic.Above are the screenshots for your reference for which I establish the internet connection.the pppoe settings can be done through "sudo pppoeconf" but for the screenshot No. 2.what is the procedure? I need to specify the service name for my internet connection.how to configure my internet connection.
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 want to create a broadband connection in suse 11.4 , in the windows the connection Properly works but in suse ...i recently installed qinternet , it runs the dsl connection , and shows this massage : " connected , connection established " , but no internet
I'm trying to configure Iptables and I just want to block everything but http/https. However, my connection is pppoe, so I have the ppp0 interface. Pretty much every Iptables tutorial that I found don't teach how to deal with this kind of setup. I'm forwarding the ppp0 to eth0 and I could configure the input rules and they're working. After this, I need to configure the output but nothing seems to work.
The current working rules are: Code: Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT 7858 packets, 5792K bytes) pkts bytes target prot opt in out source destination 299 201K ACCEPT all -- any any anywhere anywhere state RELATED,ESTABLISHED 0 0 ACCEPT tcp -- any any anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:www 0 0 ACCEPT tcp -- any any anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:https 11 820 DROP all -- any any anywhere anywhere
Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT 0 packets, 0 bytes) pkts bytes target prot opt in out source destination 0 0 ACCEPT all -- eth0 ppp0 anywhere anywhere 0 0 ACCEPT all -- ppp0 eth0 anywhere anywhere state RELATED,ESTABLISHED Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT 10791 packets, 1951K bytes) pkts bytes target prot opt in out source destination
I don't understand what those "state RELATED,ESTABLISHED" rules do. Also, I don't know if this rules are secure, because i'm very confused about the ppp0/eth0 interfaces.
I use pppoe connection over wireless network, for long time I've used console, so I didn't had any problem with it, BUT - after installing gnome, I can't connect to the wireless ISP. On my network manager I see my wireless network, I can connected to it, but when I do it, I don't see DSL connection on my menu, If I only connect cable to it, DSL connection is showing again. What should I do to see the DSL connection when only wireless is connected ?
I am trying to connect a computer running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to the internet via PPPoE over WLAN and having trouble connecting. The device that connects to WAN is a D-Link DSL-G604T. WAN connection in this device is configured for bridged mode. This is what I have done:
