Ubuntu Networking :: Internet Connection Disconnect Itself
May 29, 2010
I tough that firefox was the problem of my very slow web sites loading, but I am suspecting that sometimes the internet connection is the reason, maybe for some reason that I don't know it can not just connect to the site.I am running Linux quick-desktop 2.6.32-22-generic #33-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 28 13:28:05 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux.when I browse the web it is very slow to load.sometimes I get this error message.Could not locate remote server.Even I know the site is up running like google.
I have a cisco linksys wireless adapter (WUSB600n) which, most of the time, great when booting up. But mostly after some time (1min- 1hr.) it disconnects. When checking the status I can see some of the networks around me, including mine. But selecting it doesn't do anything. I searched the forums and tried:
sudo dhclient and sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
But still no connection; the only thing that helps is rebooting.
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my Acer TravelMate 3270 notebook (with Windows 7 dual boot) for everyday use. All is great except i started to notice my Wireless Network get disconnected and then reconnects every 5 minutes or so. Also the NetworkManager Applet 0.8 keep annoying me with the notifications that its disconnected and then reconnected.
I do not have this issue while using Windows 7 (in the same area). Can this be fixed. As i really want to move my day to day computing need to Ubuntu.
Since I upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04 my wireless connection is very unstable. I install the needed wireless drivers from 'Hardware Drivers' (Broadcom STA wireless driver) and I got wireless connection, but it randomly disconnect, and also connection is very slow.
I think that the problem are the drivers which are not very compatible with this version of Ubuntu, which means we need to wait for update? I have HP ProBook 4510s laptop, Intel PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN network card & Gembird NSW-R2 router. I'm only having this problem on Ubuntu 10.04, on other OS's the internet is fine.
My network is barely functional. I'm running 2 linux servers connected by openvpn (tun) through routers on both sides. There are Windows clients (98 and XP) on both subnets. One server (ls3) acting as PDC for the domain. The Windows clients use the respective linux boxes as gateways. On the server side (ls3 which is both openvpn server and samba server), all the clients can read/write properly to shares on both sides. The problems are all on the client side. Share connections to the server side disconnect after a few moments.
Browsing on the client side windows machines is fine. I can see shares on the server side. Some server side files open and are readable, writable, other server side files will not open. Some samba logon scripts on the server side can be opened from the client side. Others open after a long wait to a blank file! Permissions on server side files are set to 777 for testing. If a file won't open or reads "blank", that doesn't change no matter how many times you try. A non-readable/writable file overwritten by a readable/writable one can be read and written to!
I can ping successfully from any client on either side to any other client by either ip address or workstation name. Firewalls on both side are set to forward tcp and udp traffic going to port 1194 to the respective gateway linux boxes. Iptables on both linux gateways are down for testing. I tried reversing the openvpn server/client roles with the same result; the same physical side of the network had the problem. On one of the windows 98 clients, I wiped out the networking configuration completely and rebuilt it from scratch. Same result.
One one of the windows xp clients, I tried to rejoin the domain. It went through successfully but the result was the same as above. The network was operating smoothly for several years until the client side dsl modem broke last week. It was replaced with a newer model and at the same time I migrated from a pptp connection to openvpn. How to resolve this, Is this something to do with openvpn? Is this a network hardware problem? Am I missing something in the port forwarding on the routers? My smb.conf files are ancient except I added interface tun0. I have never seen 2 files sitting next to each other in the same directory where one opens and the other doesn't!
I'm running Mandrake 9.2 on the client side and Mandriva 2008 on the server side. I have a Sonicwall firewall on the server side, a Westell 7500 on the client side. I note that during the modem install, the http port was opened to the linux box on the client side and the access log got huge over the weekend and I ran out of disk space until I closed it down and deleted the log. I tried a simple test while viewing /var/log/daemons/errors on the client side. From a windows workstation in the client subnet, I opened a dos window and tried to print a file located on the samba server on the openvpn server machine which I knew NOT to be problematic.
The file printed and there were no errors reported in the log. I repeated the test with a known problematic file. The file would not print. The errors log noted: Authenticate/Decrypt packet error: packet HMAC authentication failed I regenerated the static.key file on the server side and scp'd it to the client side and restarted both openvpn's. I checked for duplicate files named static.key on both sides. Same error.
I am running Ubuntu 10.10, and I would like to use my computer to share the internet connection from an ethernet port. For example, I would like to set up my computer as a wireless access point so I can create a network that other computers can connect to for internet.
I have been useing Ubuntu for 1-2years now. Lately I've been having some troubles with my wireless Internet connection, almost every 1min i disconnect and connect again few sec after and thats like hell if you try to fx. update. I have 85-92% signal so thats not my problem.I use Ubuntu 10.04 and the standard network manager. I'm connected to a netgear router and my computer is a acer aspire one.
Its a case of ".... wireless network connection active but still not internet connection .."I am using WEP - 128 key ... Works when I connect directly using ethernet cable ... but not wireless (pci and wireless router)
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 seem to have is trying to get the internet to work. I can go to ..... ect but when I try to run playonlinux it says you do not seem to be connected to the internet, please post if you have anything useful, as I said I am very new to linux so be as detailed as possible.
Ive recently switched over to AT&T Uverse TV/Internet service and I've noticed that when I ssh into my linux( 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5xen CentOS) server I get disconnected. When I'm using putty it gives the "network error software caused connection abort" error. When I'm at work using one of our jump servers and ssh'ing from the command line it will freeze up from time to time but never disconnects. I think the problem is either with the OS or the new AT&T modem. At first I had my CentOS server using DHCP and it would disconnect within a few minutes after I ssh'ed. I switched over to a static IP and now it goes about 10 minutes before it disconnects. It doesnt matter if I'm actively typing or not, so it's not an inactivity issue. I have the firewall turned off on my laptop, and since the issue happens on multiple devices, including my iphone I dont think thats the issue.
I have iptables and selinux turned off/disabled so thats not it. In putty I have enabled Keep Alive(30 seconds) and it still disconnects. I opened the port on the modem to allow ssh for the IP of the linux server. Ive also recently reinstalled this server with CentOS so I can't compare with the previous internet provider as I didn't reinstall until after I switched over. BUT previous installs with CentOS 5.2 worked fine with the previous ISP. AT&T Modem is a 2wire 3800HGV-B
Recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on laptop - new partition. Have PC running XP with internet connection. I have a satellite connect from Germany. I live in Turkmenistan.I know all IP addresses, subnet mask, Default gateway, etc. Can someone help configure internet on laptop w/Ubuntu? I am not the fastest ball down the alley but I shouldn't have too much problem with the terminal. Just be gentle. I just completed a pppoeconf search and was informed something or another couldn't be found. It's a little frustrating because I need to disconnect internet cable from PC and connect to Laptop. let me add that I do not have an internet user name or password "supplied by ISP". But I hooked up connection OK on XP.
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.
I have the "Work Offline" problem: when I boot up, the icon on the toolbar tells me I have "No network connection". This is not quite true, since I can access the first page of any website - only subsequent pages are inaccessible. I get a message saying that Firefox is offline. However, when I uncheck "Work Offline" in the File menu, it makes no difference to this behavior.
The problem is on my Ubuntu Dell desktop, which is connected to the internet with cable broadband via a D-Link router (wired connection). It has worked fine up till now. I use Ubuntu 10.04 and Firefox 3.6.11. I am writing this on my Ubuntu Dell laptop which is wired to the same router, so I assume the problem is not the router. I have tried various strategies suggested in threads on these forums, including editing about:config, changing "allow" to "deny" in some lines of /etc/dbus-1/system.d/NetworkManager.conf and changing from Automatic (DHCP) to Automatic (DHCP) Addresses only, but no luck so far. The contents of ifconfig are:
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 desktop on my desktop in dual boot with Windows 7.
Heres my problem, I am unable to connect to the Internet even though my wired Ethernet connection says it is connected normally. The wierd thing about this is that I also have a wireless card in my desktop and when I connect through that I am able to connect to the Internet. I am connecting to a router that is functioning as a repeater to my main router/cable modem. I have tried to solve this myself but am having no luck. Ironically, earlier today suddenly my ethernet connection worked for a few minutes without me modifying anything.
The output of some terminal commands are below.
However a pint to that ip address (my router) is successful.
Hosts.allow and hosts.deny are both fine (not blank but no entries)
I'm using ubuntu 10.04 dual boot with windows xp. Recently I'm having problems using the internet, I can connect to our wireless network but can't use the internet, firefox just says error on opening the page. But when im in windows xp i can surf and use the net. Is their a way to diagnose whats causing the problem. I use a Realtek RTL8187 wireless lan, it works fine before its just now that its not working with ubuntu.
I installed ubuntu 10.10 with windows 7 (dual boot) in my fujitsu lifebook. I use zoom ultra by Sentar EVDO MODEM ST880U. I tried pppoeconf or DSL or mobile broadband but fail to connecte internet. In first exprience on ubuntu 9.04 same via dell latitude with Huawei EC123 Data card.Any one can assist me to overcome the bad condition to like ubuntu as on offline mood in my work zone.Actually i used ubuntu 9.04 for my offline work in Dell. Now also same condition starts. Please help to come internet and enjoy ubuntu.
OS is Ubuntu 10.04. I have HomePNA-connection which is converted to Ethernet by Netsys NH-300 HomePNA-Ethernet adapter.
The problems that I have: Sometimes when I boot I don't get IP from DHCP. If try to ping any address I am told that host is unreachable. Sometimes this I can get IP by using command dhlient -r and dhclient to request new ip. Sometimes only way to get my connection to work is booting the computer.
Sometimes the connection works fine from the start but disconnects later for short time. Sometimes this happens every ten minutes, sometimes less often. If I wait for a while the connection might start working again, if not dhclient -r or reboot helps usually. But not always.
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.
I have installed fedora 12 recently. after installation i tried to connect to the internet using BSNL broadband connection. I filled in the details such as IP, Netmask, Gateway and even DNS servers. In the services also I ensured that the network manager services is on. However even though my computer cannot connect to the internet. I then tried the ping test of the modem from the address 192.168.1.1 and found that the ping test is successful. Then i tried the network administrator and there I noticed something unusual.
There are two options in the devices eth0 and eth1 thats ok but the unusual; thing is that the Activate (green button), Deactivate (red button) and even the delete buttons are in the background and I cannot select them. Isthis the problem for the network connectivity.

I installed Ubuntu 9.10 using the default setup (Gnome I think) and on my Gateway Notebook using a wireless connection. It appears to be working great and I can even see my Windows drives and network storage on my home office systems.I have also set it up to run my favorite Bible software on Windows running under VirtualBox. I then installed the KDE Desktop so that I can select either desktop when logging on.
However, once I am in the KDE desktop, I cannot connect to the internet. I have checked and double-checked and the wireless settings seem to be the same on both the Gnom and KDE Desktops but still no network or internet connection when using KDE. I might mention that I am using the 64 Bit version of Ubuntu.
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and trying to use Internet Connection Sharing through my Dell Mini 9 laptop.
The incoming internet is from wireless The outgoing internet is from Ethernet I am using a crossover cable as I have heard this is necessary I followed the 9.10 method on my Auto Eth 0 connection Here is a link to the Ubuntu Documentation I used The computer I am trying to share to does not pick up the internet being shared from the cable.
I have an EMachine T3095 with xp home os and ubuntu os. I install ubuntu in windows. In windows I don't load internet software, yet surfing the web fine in both os. Recently did complete re-installation of windows and ubuntu os, for got 3 trojan viruses on windows. Now can't get on the internet in windows. Emachine said I need to get motherboard downloaded to get LAN, which is not on windows software. Isn't the same motherboard used by ubuntu to get on the internet? Obviously some software has been corrupted? Which software could be the problem. Is there a link to download it?
I have a system with windows xp, and to connect to internet I use a usb card EVDO (brand ZTE) given by my provider (BSNL India).Now I installed ubuntu 10:04 but I do not know how to make my usb card work to connect to internet (the provider gave the software only for win xp)
I'm using 10.04 I tried to connect to a free WiFi connection. I had the password for it too. I had been able to access the connection 2 weeks ago with no real trouble. Now, the thing at the top of my screen indicates I'm connected BUT I can't get Firefox to access any sites. I can't download email using Thunderbird. Pretty strange isn't it?
