Ubuntu Networking :: Nokia CS-10 USB Internet Stick And 10.04 - Wireless 3g Connection - Doesn't Even Get Recognized ?
May 2, 2010
After having trouble with Ubuntu 9.10 (solved with a nice modemmanager bug fix by a great user) here we are with the new Lucid Lynx: until now, just to be safe, I am trying my Nokia CS-10 USB stick (for wireless 3g connection) with the Live Ubuntu, and it doesn't even get recognized (no red light or anything else)...
I am a convert from Ubuntu (9.04 kept freezing on my laptop; when it did work, many packages it seemed were outdated--ie only Eclipse 3.2, rdesktop was messed up [and apparently is also in Fedora]), and I am having some trouble with getting my wireless working.I am running Fedora 11.First off, there is a problem when trying to connect when using DHCP. NetworkManager gets to the second green dot, and then after a short while I am given a message that the connection was disconnected.
Configuring the interface manually, not using DHCP, allows the connection to complete. However, the internet is very slow. There is a 15-30 sec delay before website loading actually commences, and then another delay each time an ad must be fetched from another server.How can I fix this delay? I know I have encountered it in earlier versions of Ubuntu, but I can't remember how I fixed it.About the rdesktop problem, if anyone is able to help [maybe I should post another thread?], the cursor color (the color of the pointer) is inverted---where it should be white it is black, and where it should be black it is white. I use rdesktop a lot to connect to my terminal server in my basement. Any idea how to fix it?
I have opensuse 11.1 Gnome on Lenovo S10e. I'm wanting to establish a mobile internet connection. I have tried so far...*UMTSMON but when I click on it nothing happens. I have reinstalled the program several times to no avail. *WINE to run the Optus program, however the program doesn't find the HUAWEI USB stick & *Via a Bluetooth connection (use mobile phone as a modem) didn't work either Anyhow, I have tried these and some other ways to get mobile to no avail.
Also, have gone to network connections-mobile broadband-add-configure it- but what am I forgetting to do? Need a path I can take to get mobile internet working. (I even have a direct SIM card slot in this laptop
I've been having 2 issues with my internet connection on ubuntu for as long as I can remember, I've tried updates but they haven't seemed to work so great and am pretty fed up with this. So I have a Netgear wg111t wireless usb dongle which I got working through ndiswrapper. The 2 issues I am having are:
1. After a random period of time my internet just decides to disconnect, the strange thing is the bars at the top still say I'm connected. The only way to get the internet working again is to turn the pc off and on. Another way I have experienced this happening is usually when I'm downloading something off a torrent. 2. After restarting my pc the wifi usb isn't recognised and I can't connect to the internet.
I've just installed the 64 bit 10.04 onto my new netbook, with ample specs to run the full desktop version rather than the stripped down netbook version. My only problem (at the moment) is that my wired internet connection is not recognized within the operating system, yet while I was downloading/installing Ubuntu it had no problem finding and using the connection then. When I boot into Windows 7 or plug the ethernet cable into my Mac, the connection is established immediately, and no need for manual entering of anything because everything is auto-detected. The really strange thing is I've run Ubuntu off a USB stick and when booting off that the wired connection was immediately recognized after startup.
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've just upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04. Everything worked fine, until I rebooted. Now I can not connect to my home wireless internet, so I can't re-enable third party software sources. I am currently using a different computer, so I know that our internet works. I checked the wireless switch on my laptop, and it says that wireless is enabled. I've rebooted, and it still doesn't work. I tried our wired internet, and that didn't work either (although I'm not sure if our wired internet works; we haven't used it in a few years)
Trying to move from Windows to OpenSUSE. I have installed OpenSUSE 11.2, and am having a hard time trying to connect to the internet using my nokia E65. I have tried to configure the modem thru YaST and it keeps showing that my nokia E65 modem is not configured, but adds another modem every time I configure using the edit button i.e. modem0, modem1 etc.
When i finish the configuration I get pop ups on the bottom right conner: Notification from network management WLAN interface attached Network interface attached
But nothing happens afterwards. When I connect the phone it shows that it is recognized as a modem (probably). but when I click on the icon so it connects to my service provider "econet" it just says activating with a red x in the conner, and still nothing happens!
The following are the screenshots (still not sure how to attach files on this forum), may someone assist, with that too.
I really want to move from Windows but this is what's stopping me. the sooner I connect to the Internet through my phone, the sooner I leave Windows, since it's the only way I can connect to the internet.
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 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 attempted to download and install Linux XP and the installation appeared to be a success. But after install of course the system reboots. Well after rebooting before opening up the desktop it forces me to set up the domain or something It would not recognize my internet/network connection. My ISP provider doesn't use any type of authentic. My internet connection is automatically configured through my modem. How do I get Linux XP to recognize my internet connection and finish the final process so that I can load into desktop ?? I also had a very similar problem with Linux Ubuntu Studio as well. I installed it and I was able to get into the desktop but still was unable to establish an internet connection.
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?
Finally I thought I solved my problem with the help of Dmizer. My networkcard wasn't functioning correctly due to the hardware switch on my laptop. For more information about this check this thread: [URL]
Now I have a new problem, probably caused by the problem above. I have a connection (so the network manager says) but no internet. I checked the network settings by using the ifconfig command in a terminal. This tells me that I have an address of 10.43.42.2 (or similar) which should be something like this 192.168.x.x.
I had already tried to use a command like "ifconfig release" but this didn't work. I know too much windows like but i had to try something. I also had the connection properties checked and changed to my network settings. After i did this I had still the same address (10.43.42.2 or similar).
Unless someone knows what is going on I'd like to know how to refresh of renew my IP address from the DHCP server.
Some information about my hardware and drivers:
NIC vendor: Atheros Communications Inc. NIC chipset: AR2413 (i guess, i do not have my laptop with me at the time of writing) Old driver: ath5k New driver: ath_pci (installed from madwifi)
I have no wireless internet on my 11.04. I can access my wired connection but my wireless doesn't show connections and isnt able to connect to any wireless network in the neighbourhood. (I had this probz too in 9.10 and 10.04) But none of the solutions work now. I already tried to blacklist the blacklist at76c50x_usb

I'm having problems with my internet connection; it seems to be working fine then every other click of a page there is no connection, then I click it again a second later and it works. I am using a wired network connection plugged into an addon wireless router.
When I use ping under network tools it seems to be fine, then freezes halfway through and doesn't receive those few packets, giving me a transmission percentage of about 70%.
I have a DSL modem with four ports and a built-in wireless router downstairs. It works great: I have wired Ethernet for my PCs downstairs (all plugged in directly to the DSL modem); my son has great wireless access upstairs (using the built-in wireless in his laptop). PROBLEM: I want to add another, desktop, PC upstairs. I've been trying to use wireless, with a plug-in a Linksys USB stick. It doesn't work worth crap.
I'm considering a) getting another phone jack upstairs, and moving my DSL modem there, or b) stringing some CAT-5 cable from the modem downstairs to the PC upstairs. Putting a wireless PCI card in my upstairs desktop PC might also solve the problem, but the PC only has one PCI slot, and I'd rather keep it free, if at all possible.
QUESTION: Is there any kind of "wireless repeater", where I can a) get wireless access from my DSL modem/wireless base station downstairs, and b) give me some spare Ethernet ports, so I can plug in desktop PC (so the PC can have a wired Ethernet connection)? POSSIBLE SOLUTION: I have an old Linksys WRT54G router that I'm not using. Q: Is there any way to configure it for this purpose? Q: Would it be possible to use it for this purpose if I installed OpenWRT?
I've been using this network forever With windows and I can't figure out how to connect to it now with ubuntu...I have a build-in wireless card and I know the name/password of the connection, but my computer cannot seem to locate it. I've looked through guides and none of them work..
I'm using a WUSB54GC network adapter to connect to my home wireless network. My network was not visible, so I added it and it shows connected, but when I launch the browser, I can't get a connection. I'm using Ubuntu 10.4. All other computers on the network connect fine and I disabled my firewall to see if that made a difference.
i just installed the 10.0.4 version. My problem is that I cant connect to the internet. When I add a new wireless connection, it says that its connected but i cant ping the router or connect to any websites. It keeps auto assigning me with a 10.42.43.1 ip which doesn't make any since because my router's is nowhere close to that.
I have an old Compaq Presario v2000 that recently had Ubuntu 10.04 installed on it. The wired internet worked when it was installed, but the wireless didn't. I tried to download the drivers for it and it failed everytime. I did an update thinking that the update might fix the wireless, but it didn't, it actually made my wired connection stop working. So now I have a newly installed OS on the laptop, and I can't do anything on it because there is no way to get any internet.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 . Need to get my wireless router working on my HP laptop. Have been using a Linksys WRT54G Router with windows and it is working properly. Tried setting up in NetworkManager but it does not work.
When looking at things in the Ubuntu terminal it says the network is DISABLED.
I had been happily using a wireless connection for about two weeks. The connection then went down for a few days. Since it came back up, I can connect to the network, but cannot access the internet. Other users of the network can both connect to the network, and access the internet, though people have experienced the same problem as me the last time the network went down (they could connect to the network but not access the internet). I have tried deleting and re-starting the connection, to no avail. I have looked around the forums, but haven't found anything that can help: do any of you have any suggestions? I am malarial and at the end of tether.It is not a problem with Ipv6, which is set to ignore, as it was in the past when the connection workedI am running Ubuntu 10.10 on an X61 Thinkpad. Below is the output of iwconfig, route -n, lspci, and what happens when I ping other network
