Ubuntu Networking :: Once I Connect / Within 30 Seconds Lose Internet Connection
Sep 7, 2010
I have an ASUS G50Vt laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 installed on it. I have a WiFi Link 5100 wireless device. I use these settings to connect to it:URL...My problem is, once I connect, within 30 seconds I lose my Internet connection. It goes on and off seemingly whenever it wants. Is there something I'm missing? Some kind of driver issue or something else I need to change?I can connect to the non-secure connections fine, just when I try to use the secure one it craps out. Halp?
I use a Westell 327W dsl modem/router to connect to the internet. I installed Ubuntu 11.04 on two computers. My desktop is connected with ethernet and works perfectly. However, when I connect my laptop with wifi, it causes the router to lose it's internet connection. All connected devices are affected. The only way to fix the problem is to shut off and turn on the router again. This problem only happens with with the laptop and Ubuntu. I use the same laptop with Win7, and it connects fine. I also have no problems connecting my Android phone or PS3 to the router. The wifi in the laptop is an Atheros model.
I have tried no security, WEP, and WAP. The result is the same with all three settings. I can still access the router config from any device 192.168.1.1 after the internet goes out. The DSL led on the router stays on, and the config says the DSL connection is active.
I set up a vpnc connection, and it says it connects fine, but then I have no internet connection at all, and cannot ssh into the remote server(the reason i need this vpn) or do anything else involving the internet.I question if it actually connects at all, as sudo vpnc myconf.conf only shows the connect banner and never progresses from there.
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 a Acer Aspire 7535-5020 laptop with a Atheros AR5B91 wireless adapter & lose my connection after about 10 minutes.The only way to reconnect is by rebooting.I read in another thread that installing the linux-backports-modules-karmic would solve the problem.However when I try to install it I get the message, Error Dependency is notsatisfiable:Linux-backports-Modules-2.6.31-22 generic.
I have a server with two ethernet ports. I configured eth0 to be static, set at 10.1.10.148. I plugged in another router into the other ethernet port in order to configure that router. I configured eth1 to use dhcp. Using /etc/network/interfaces rather than gnome network manager. When I did this, I lost internet connectivity (internet routes through eth0 of course)
- Why did I lose internet connectivity?
In order to recover internet activity, I had to disconnect the new router on eth1 of course, and do sudo ifdown eth1. That wasn't enough however. After rebooting numerous times and pulling out my hair, I finally tried configuring eth0 as dhcp, rather than static, and this fixed the problem.
- Why didn't sudo ifdown eth1 solve the problem? What information was saved between reboots that somehow remembered that I plugged in the new router? Because my thinking was if /etc/network/interfaces was identical, and the network topology was identical, after a reboot everything should be restored, but it wasn't.
Im having trouble with my hp mini 110, i read abit of information about it on the site and installed a package that gets my wifi working, problem being is that as soon as I go upstairs i lose connection, its not really upstairs if I move more than 5 feet away from my router no internet although the laptop reads full signal.
I believe its a problem with the broadcom drivers, is there anyway to resolve this or do I have to go back to Windows 7 because I really dont wanna do that.
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..
How to connect Ubuntu to the Internet through a broadband connection? I decided to give Linux a try, and I picked the Ubuntu variant. I have some problems with the Internet connection though. I have a broadband (modem-less) PPoE connection, and all the info needed in order for me to connect are the username and password (which I have).
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 bought my new Dell inspiron N1401 64bit laptop. It has windows 7 installed in it, I am begineer to linux. I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit version. I have a wired internet connection which works fine with my windows 7. When I switch to Ubuntu, when internet cable is plugged, the top right corner, network manager shows connection is established, but when I open firefox I cannot access internet. I tried searching on forums, but I could not make it work. If I type ifconfig command in terminal attached is the output I get, I dont know what is the problem. I want to use Ubuntu than Windows
I just installed Ubuntu in my PC and I tried to connect to internet using broadband connection. I use a ADSL router with WiFi access point to connect with network and dial my username and password using my computer to connect to internet.I could so it easily on windows 7 from Network and Sharing center and Setting up new connection or network and connect to internet using broadband internet.How can i do it with ubuntu 11.04 ?
Earlier today I decided I wanted to switch back over to ubuntu, my internet was working fine, but as soon as i reformatted to Linux my modem stopped showing any lights under ADSL - TX and RX. and I can't connect to my wireless connection anymore. What should I doooooooo
I have just installed a fresh copy of 9.10 on an older Compaq nc6000 laptop. I need some help getting my Linksys WUSB600N wireless adapter to function properly.
I have "half-way" connectivity, meaning that I can see (and connect to) my home wireless network but I can't connect to the internet (unless I use the wired connection). I have installed NDIS wrapper - no change
I am using WINDOWS 7, in which i connect to the internet through broadband connection dialer wich requires username and password,aslo i have another connection wich is used to connect to LAN. I hav recently installed ubuntu 9.10.. Now my WIRED connection is showing established..with eth1 and following are the outputs of some coomands which might help u to identify the problem..
My friend is trying to share his clearwire connection with me using Windows ICS. Using network-manager or wicd, I am unable to connect to his share. I am able to connect unencrypted with iwconfig, to the ad-hoc network, and then use dhclient to gain ip address.
I am not able to connect to WPA encrypted share using network-manager or wicd. nm-applet crashes when trying to connect. I am attempting to setup wpa_supplicant, but haven't got it working yet.As usual, the wireless networking out of the box experience in Ubuntu doesn't work. This is extremely frustrating. If Ubunut's goals are to be the default desktop, then these guys need to get wifi that "Just Works"...
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 recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my Dell Inspiron 1545 64-bit laptop. Before that I used Windows7. In Windows, the internet connection worked perfectly well. But after installing Ubuntu, I am unable to connect to the internet. The network-manager applet finally says that "You are disconnected". When I do the "ifconfig", I got no IP address.
So, I installed Ubuntu 9.04 in the same system. But the problem persists.
I gone through many posts in this forum but nothing was useful.
I have just installed Linux Mint 8 to an Asus A6000. My problem is that the computer won't connect with my wireless router. I have tried with MAC-adress and such, but still no respons. I also tried to connect with a cable to my modem, but no response there either.
I think I may lack some drivers, to what I think is Broadcom b43, but I am not sure. I tried to download the drivers on my other computer, and transfered them to the Asus. I managed to install 2/4 drivers, but on the two others, I get this message "Failed to fetch ... Couldn't reach archive.ubuntu.com"
I installed Ubuntu (10.04) today and it has gone smoothly except for the fact that I can't connect to the Internet when in Ubuntu (connection works fine in Windows XP). I am using a wireless USB card (Linksys WUSB600N) to connect.
The weird thing is that the card detects all the local networks, asks me for a password to my network, and it even says it is connected to my network after I put the password in -- but when I open Firefox no pages will load.
There is another weird quirk as well: Ubuntu will not restart or shut down properly (it hangs around indefinitely with the little white / orange dots going across the screen) unless I first remove the wireless card from the USB slot. But that doesn't bother me as badly as the lack of Internet.
Recently I had installed Ubuntu 10.04 in which I had connected to the internet by way of terminal (pppoeconf) and I could access any site with ease.But one fine day suddenly I could not access the net, I try to locate the notification icon (network manager),but could not find it.I did this and that,googled it trying to find the solution but alas to my disappointment I had to format it.
After reinstallation of Ubuntu I connect the internet by way of editing connection on panel and i could access the net. The problem is that I could not access some site especially org site e.g Home - Desiring God so can anybody guide me in how to connect in most better way.
newly installed fedora 15 is not able to connect to internet i have broadband connection with wireless modem my laptop is connecting to wireless modem network. but i am not able to configure pppoe connection on it PS: i am able to connect to internet when using wired connection from modem
Note that I have REMOVED my wireless card in case there was some kind of hardware conflict or failure. I am using a wired connection through a Linksys WRT54G router that is supplying an Internet connection to another computer and an IP phone without any problem.
When I run the command network-admin (or select System > Administration > Network) I can see only 3 tabs (General, DNS and Hosts) It seems that the Connections tab has disappeared (and I believe this happened when I upgraded from Ubuntu 9/Karmic Koala). If I click Help it shows me that there should be 4 tabs, not 3.
The connection dropping began prior to my decision to upgrade. In fact it took several attempts to complete the upgrade. Should I attempt to re-install the upgrade? I am not sure how to do it without losing my connection. When I visit System > Administration > Update Manager, I am informed that my system is up to date.
I have just installed ubuntu 10.04 using the wubi installer to dual-boot my machine. Under ubuntu, I am not able to connect to the internet or my router. Everything works fine under windows. I have tried to find relevant information in the forums, but nothing seems to work for me. I have tried disabling ipv6, setting a static ip, but no go. ifconfig shows no IP, dhclient results in no DHCP offers and pinging my router's IP results in Network is Unreachable.
My laptop has been working fine with ubuntu 10.04, and earlier today it shut down after running out of battery. I came to use itr and discovered that the wifi icon had disappeared from the panel bar, and it won't connect to the wireless networkor via a wired connection.I have had a play around with this, tried ping -c5 google.comresult was:ping: unknown host google.comand ping -c5 220.127.116.11result: onnect:etwork is unreachable.I have other computers connecting to this network and know that it is working fine.
After upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04, I'm not able to make any connection to the internet with either my netbook through WiFi or my computer on wired LAN. I can, however, ping my Solaris machines and Macbook. How do I fix this?
