Im using ubuntu 9.04. The network manager (at least thats what i think its called, the thing managing network connections that usually resides on the panel in the upper right corner where you can check available connections, log in to VPN etc) has completely disappeared, i dont know what i have upgraded, i usually just click and download all upgrades..Ive tried to re-add it to the panel but i cant even find it there.
I updated my FC10 just a day back. The problem is that Netwrok Manager has disappeared. And in spite of re-installing it, it doesn't appear on the panel when i enter 'NetworkManager' as root in the terminal.I have a USB modem right now. Update was made through a broadband connection. Ethernet works perfectly well but this USB modem of mine doesn't work at all. And I have to use USB not Ethernet.
The network manager applet has disappeared from my top panel so now I cannot see what local wireless networks are available. I just came from the library and was unable to connect to their wi-fi because the computer wasn't trying to detect it. All I have is a network connections applet that seems fairly useless as it just gives me info on networks I've used in the past and not on any currently available networks.How do I get this Network Manager back and functioning?
Yesterday while trying (unsuccessfully) to get a new Bluetooth dongle set up I lost the network manager applet. When I rebooted, after giving up on Bluetooth in Ubuntu, I had no way of connecting to my wireless network. In command line (iwconfig & iwlist scan) I was able to see the wireless router. So the wireless card is working correctly. How do I reinstall the network manager applet? Oh even when use a wired connection to the router there is no connection.
I have assigned ip address to laptop by editing /etc/network.interfaces. From next reboot the Network Manager Applet which was present on right hand upper corner, disappeared. I wonder why? This has happened with 9.04, 9.10 and now in 10.04. Another question is, are Network Manager settings (ip) and /etc/network/interfaces do correspond to same thing or not? As I have narrated above, since network manager applet is no more visible how to see the physical network cable connectivity status (as we do in windows xp)? (is there any other app of such kind or what?)
I was setting up my internet connection in Ubuntu 10.04, while I had to reboot.After the reboot Network icon in the top-right corner was disappeared! Really, I can't understand why.I tried to open synaptic, totally remove network-manager and network-manager-gnome and then I tried to reinstall them. After the reboot, still, there wasn't Network icon.I tried to press ALT+F2 and insert "nm-applet --sm-disable" but nothing happends.
I tried to right-click on upper-toolbar and then to go on "add panel" but I can't find out network manager (or similar).If I write on my terminal "sudo nm-applet" it says that there's already an nm-applet running but where? And how can I open it?On System/Administration/Network Tools (I don't know if this is the exactly translation...) all network parameters are 0 such us 0.0.0.0 on IPs. Of course internet connection does not work!How can I restore Network Manager?
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx 32 bit version alongside my Windows OS.I wanted to enable my DHCP configuration in my modem.So I did what was to be done from Windows and when I switched to Linux, I found DHCP enabled connection not working in Linux and also the network manager icon had vanished from the systray.I have now switched off DHCP and wanted to revert back to my original settings but still no network manager icon is there.
For some reason, I can't get network-manager to appear on the task bar so that I can edit the connections. Also, network manager doesn't appear in system/prefs menu. if I try typing at the terminal 'sudo nm-applet" it says "An instance of nm-applet is already running. ** (nm-applet:9074): WARNING **: <WARN> constructor(): Couldn't initialize the D-Bus manager." If I inspect the system | preferences | startup apps , network manager is selected with the command "nm-applet --sm-disable".
I can see "network-manager" shown in /etc/inid.d but "sudo network-manager" gives "command not found". Anyone know what I have to do to get it working ? Uninstalling and re-installing hasn't worked. I have tried installing Wicd and that shows Lan & wireless connections ok but it *doesn't show my usb data-dongle* which I've just got working using the very useful application UsbModem_Switch by Draisberghof .
So the workaround for me is to call that connection manually ( if I need to use the usb data-card dongle ) with the command "sudo usb_modeswitch -W -c /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/0471:1210". However, if I can get the network-manager applet thing to show up and use that it would be easier. Or is there a better alternative to Wicd which can handle usb data-card modem connections ?
When the laptop boots I get a very brief message to say "wireless network available, click on icon". But it disappears in a second. I'm not clear whether my WL-140 card is in device wlan0 or wmaster0. Here's what lshw -C network says... *-network description: Wireless interface product: ISL3886 [Prism Javelin/Prism Xbow] vendor: Intersil Corporation physical id: 2 bus info: pci@0000:06:00.0 logical name: wmaster0 version: 01 serial: 00:0c:f6:14:a4:35 width: 32 bits clock: 33MHz .....
After a few years of being a fedora user on a large network, I final decided to bite the bullet and dual-boot my home desktop (solely XP at the time) with fedora 10 on Saturday. The installation seemed to go well, but I am having a few problems, which solved themselves at one point but have come back and I have no idea why.
- I installed and re-partitioned with the install DVD, giving fedora 20GB. Having read a few guides and forum posts I wasn't surprised when the wifi and ATI graphics card didn't work. They appeared in the output of lspci, but I couldn't change the screen resolution and no wireless card was available. - I bought a new wireless card a while ago but hadn't had time to put in so used this opportunity to do so (installed it in XP to check it worked) and when I rebooted, guess what, the resolution was what I wanted and I could see all the networks in the neighbourhood. I connected, downloaded/installed the myriad of updates together with a couple of programes through yum and went to bed a happy man. - This morning (my router needed rebooting and after) I was back to the same as before the new wireless card, i.e. low resolution and no wifi. Having no idea what had happened, I check for loose connections, after that the resolution returned and the wifi worked but I can't see my home network.
I recently fixed an annoying problem and I thought it would be nice to share my solution here. The problem was that after a cycle of suspend/resume, Network Manager would only auto-connect to the same network as it was previously connected to. So, for example, if I suspended my laptop at home, and then I went to school and resumed it, it would try to connect to the home network, and then just give up. It would not connect to the school network unless I explicitly told it to.irst, I'll describe the fix. If you're having this problem, you can this. Copy the following:
I am a Windows refugee who discovered Ubuntu as a way to save my files from my virus-ravaged computer. Had no installation discs for Windows, so when I had to wipe my hard drive and start over, I decided to give Ubuntu a try. I've had mixed success, but that's another post...
Right now, the problem is that I installed 10.10 two weeks ago and was able to connect to the Internet with no problems - until yesterday. Suddenly, our wireless network (the only one in the vicinity) does not come up as available in Network Manager. In fact, the entire wireless option disappeared. I know there are many posts and threads on here about this, but weeding through them trying to find an answer is more frustrating than actually dealing with the problem. I know the router works because I can post on this forum from the Macbook. I really like Ubuntu and would like to keep using it, but not being able to connect to the Internet now on top of the other issues I've had is making me doubt I want to continue down this Linux road.
P.S. When I attempted an analysis through System Testing, it said something about there being no proprietary drivers?
I have used ubuntu in the past but had a lot of hardware issues with it and unfortunately moved back to windows (( BUT i have tried Ubuntu again and all seems to work great except wifi My wifi connection is sort of working because when i run SUDO IWLIST SCAN it does pull up all available networks. But in the network manager icon on the panel i left click but i see no networks and can't connect to anything. I WOULD LOVE TO keep Ubuntu and use it permanently but I must get wifi working or else this won't be possible.
I have the problem with my notebook, that, after I used it at work, the network-manager always tries to autoconnect after boot. He has no cable network and so I get the message "not connected" after a while.how to tell the network-manager, not to autoconnect each time?
I recently put Linux on a Thinkpad T40 I got. The wireless card works out of the box--I can see nearby networks. However, I can't connect to mine. network-manager would try (spin spin spin), fail, ask for the password, and then go back to the beginning and repeat indefinitely. This happened to me on a different computer, and on that one all I had to do was use wicd instead of network-manager. So I installed wicd, but it's not working either--it hangs at "Obtaining IP address".
I've found many, many threads with people who had the same problem, but none of their fixed worked for me.
I also tried to get wifi going manually, using this guide, but that didn't work.
My wifi connection drops sometimes and, for some reason, Network Manager attempts to connect to my neighbor's network, which requires a password (which I don't know). Is there any way to blacklist a wireless network so that the Network Manager will never attempt to connect to it?
Seems like i have an issue, and the applet vanished even though after some attemps typing to reintate it with: ALT F2. nm-applet I was advised to insert the gui panel but seems i do not have on version 10.04
I had trouble connecting to a wireless network with openSUSE, so I tried the YAST network manager to see if that fixed it. Not only did it not fix it, but now I cannot connect to any network, wired or wireless. I tried to open the default network manager and it said "Network management disabled". How do I re-enable it?I also have set YAST settings back to their originals with no luck.
I'm try to create a mobile broadband connection using my Huawei E 1550 medem. but in Network manager there is not way to select my modem in the first step ( device selection step ) the drop down menu is locked. what to do ? how to configure my modem with ubuntu ?
Whenever I start up my laptop i do not get a wireless connection automatically. I have to rightclick network manager applet and select enable networking. After that everything works fine untill i shutdown and restart my laptop. I would like a way to change this so that my wifi connection is working whithout having to click something first..
Neither of my wired network connections are listed in the network manager applet. I know that networking seems to be functional since I can ping local devices on the network. I can't resolve DNS names however. I suppose this is because network manager usually handles DNS? I've posted the outputs of various configurations below.
/etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.cfg # This file is installed into /etc/NetworkManager, and is loaded by # NetworkManager by default. To override, specify: '--config file' # during NM startup. This can be done by appending to DAEMON_OPTS in
I came into work this morning to find XFCE's window manager completely broken: no title bars, unable to move windows around, and unable to focus on a window to type in it (terminal, browser address bar, etc.). I tried going into the preferences then window manager settings, but just got a blank panel. Deleting .config/xfce4 didn't solve the problem.
I'm thinking of just doing a clean install of Xubuntu, or more likely another Xfce-based distro, since my current setup (regular Ubuntu with Xubuntu also installed) is quite messed up (same startup applications being used for Gnome and Xfce, and various other issues). I can't remember whether I did any updates last Friday that might have broken it.
Interestingly I used to have similar issues with Xmonad when I used it - some features didn't work properly and I had to restart the WM to fix them. Never did find a proper solution.
Its disappeared before and its gone again> Last time this happened there was a root input which solved the problem but did not take a note of it and cannot find it through google this time Basically left my Linux Acer Aspire One and when I returned to it, connection manager had disappeared and cannot get it back.
Loaded Ubuntu 10.4lucid on TransPort NX Mobile Pentium II, 328MiB,Using Netgear Rangemax wn511b. with Broadcom STA wirless driver. bcm43gx.Boot computer and network manager shos "no network devices available" Run system/administration/hardware drivers and the Broadcom STA driver shows up (only one that shows up) REMOVE and then ACTIVATE and the network manager sees it and connects fine. Shut down computer, restart and no device. I am forced to Remove and Activate each time I start the computer.Is there a way to set this driver to be found and run at computer start.
I've decided to give ubuntu another test drive now that I got a bigger and better desktop. I downloaded the latest version of ubuntu, loaded it into my usb stick and booted from it. I then clicked on the install icon on the desktop to start the installation. Everything was going ok, until I came to the partitioning part. I had already (on windows 7) created a separate partition for ubuntu which is 56GB. So I chose "manual partitioning" and selected the ubuntu partition as /home and began the installation.
Everything seemed to have went well, the window suddenly closed and then nothing happened. I waited for 15mins and still nothing happened. I decided to restart and see what happened, but I discovered that I couldn't boot into windows anymore. It said something about intel boot manager cannot find filesystem. So I decided to boot back from the usb and see if I can reinstall ubuntu, I came to the partitioning part and all the drives were gone, I couldn't see anything, it was blank.
Since the last update the 'wireless network authentication required' box keeps asking me for my wep key. Everything was working fine previously, I've even re-installed ubuntu just in case it was something I did....again everything was working OK until I installed the latest Nvidia drivers and updated ubuntu.I can see my wireless connection when I click on the network manager icon I just wont connect.Wired connection works fine.
I've installed Karmic after using Jaunty for a year. In Jaunty, my wireless Belkin USB adapter would get it's best signal if I set the rate at 11M...sudo iwconfig wlan0 rate 11MTo avoid having to enter that in terminal after a reboot, I followed the advice of Raven on another thread that suggested using WICD instead of Network Manager, as there were options for scripts in WICD that would allow a startup script...sh -c "/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 rate 11M"This doesn't seem to be working for me in Karmic (my connection constantly drops). Plus, the new icons for WICD are distracting (it changes color from green to yellow when the signal goes from good to low) With Network Manager and setting the rate @ 11M via terminal, everything seems rock solid (I left Last FM on last night and it was still playing when I woke up).
