Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Connect To WPA Home

Apr 20, 2010

First off, I should state that I am still using Hardy. I realize that it is many versions from the current release, but my schedule is full and provides little time to ring out a new distro and considering the nature of my problem I don't see much need.

The problem is that I cannot connect to my WPA home network. The wireless card is working because I can connect to any WEP network and before upgrading to Hardy I could connect, although not at first.

Have recently installed WICD which has not helped. WICD tries to connect but reports that it cannot obtain and IP address. Network Manager did not report anything but did seem to translate the password into an encrypted key (saw posts relating to this before but no obvious fix) Since switching to WICD I have not had the opportunity to test connection to a WEP network.

I do not wish to change the security of my home network to accommodate the operating system.

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Connect To Home Wireless

Jun 17, 2011

Am new, as of today to Fedora. I am unable to connect to my home wireless network. I have checked the security settings WPA PSK Personal TKIS, on the router. I have two windows PCs that are connected in this way.

The error message in Fedora 15 Network is Authentication required by wireless network. The details I have entered are correct, but no joy. Again, I am entirely new to Fedora

CentOS 5 Networking :: Unable To Connect To Home Computer?

Sep 3, 2009

I just moved into a new apartment and now connect via DHCP. Everything seems fine network-wise, except that when I'm at work I can't connect to the home box. (CentOS 5.3 x86_64) One thing I noticed is that I can't really determine my "true" IP address. What I mean is that it looks like my IP is, but when I use linuxdcpp, and enter a hub, I'm told my IP addr is actually something like Here's some info:

[root@localhost cwatson]$ cat /var/lib/dhclient/dhclient-eth0.leases
option dhcp-server-identifier;
option domain-name-servers;
option broadcast-address;

Ubuntu Networking :: Connected To WiFi At Home - Unable To Connect At Work?

Sep 7, 2010

I have a Dell Mini 10v with a fresh install of latest Ubuntu Netbook Edition. I have enabled proprietary drivers in order to get the WiFi card to work and managed to connect at home, starbucks etc. Good stuff.

For some reason I can detect but not connect to the WiFi at work - I get prompted for the pword and after entering it the WiFi indicater will pulse for a while only to return to the pword prompt. yes, I have the right pword and can connect my iPhone and other laptops. I am really puzzled by this and really need to get on the WiFi at work - wired connection works.

my colleague has the same dell model with windows 7 installed and is able to connect fine - I really don't want that @@@@ installed just to get WiFi. I know password entry error is the obvious solution but I connect new windows devices to it routinely and had other people try too.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Connect With Home Network?

Jun 21, 2010

IWithout having made any configuration changes (that I am conscious of), for the past few days I have been unable to connect to my home network - and hence to the internet.My 64-bit Kubuntu (10.4) is on a dual boot machine.If I boot XP then things work as they have done for the past year or so - no network connection problems at all. So I know it's not hardware, LAN or router/cable-modem related. In addition none of the other systems on the network have a problem.

I tried to check if there are some firewall settings that might have changed - but cannot seem to find anything about the firewall in my Kubuntu set-up. Indeed I cannot figure out how to do any problem source identification.

General :: Unable To Connect To Apache At Home From Outside

Feb 4, 2010

I'm running Slackware 13. Apache has been configured and running. That is to say, I can access the server pages on my machine locally using the current DHCP IP address.

However I'm unable to access it from outside (say from a friends's house) using the same DHCP IP address. I read on the internet somewhere that some DSL providers disable port 80 to prevent individuals from hosting. I don't know if that's the case but I did try specifying different ports in httpd.conf and added the port number to the IP address URL but still didn't work.


I saw some LQ threads which said that the problem could be in the firewall. I don't think I have a firewall but I'm not sure. How do I know that?

I'm just trying some stuff without much concern for security at this point. I understand that a DHCP address can change but for now I don't mind entering the IP address explicitly.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cable Modem Networking - Can't Connect To Each Other On The Home Network

Feb 14, 2010

I just got connected to Charter Cable Internet service a few days ago and I'm having a weird problem with my home network. Prior to this my network worked fine. On my network I have a desktop running Ubuntu 9.10/64 and Virtualbox with WinXP installed, an HTPC with Ubuntu 9.10/32 installed and a laptop dual booted with Ubuntu 9.10/32 and WinXP. The desktop and HTPC are hard wired to a wireless router and the laptop is wireless. The cable modem is hard wired to the router. I have samba installed and UFW is disabled. The problem is: with the cable modem turned off or on standby, all machines connect to each other and can transfer files, etc just fine but when I activate the cable modem all of the machines can connect to the Internet but the machines running Ubuntu can't connect to each other on the home network. If I boot the laptop into Windows, it can connect to the Linux machines just fine but if I boot it into Linux, it won't connect to the Linux machines but it can connect to the Internet and as far as the desktop, Ubuntu won't connect to the network but Windows running in the Virtualbox with bridged networking can connect to all of the machines.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Connect To The Internet But Can Connect To The Router

Apr 6, 2011

I am trying to setup a dhcp server for my internal network. I have two NICs, a modem, and a wireless router. I have my server connected directly to my modem which is providing me with Internet access on eth1 and is working fine. I have dhcp and dns setup on eth0 which is connected to my router. The router shows that it is connected to the Internet but when the router gives a client computer an IP address, the client is unable to connect to the Internet but can connect to the router. I will post my configuration files below with my current configuration.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect 10.04.1 LTS PC With Other PC's On My Home LAN?

Jul 28, 2010

Problem: I cannot connect my Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS PC with other PC's on my hone LAN... My PC will connect to everthing in my LAN using any other OS (Win7, Windows Vista, OpenSolaris), but not with Ubuntu.

I have a small home network. I have 3 PC's networked together into a Linksys WRT-54G Wireless/Wired Router. That router, in turn, is wired to a DSL Modem. This router is wireless and has 4 additional ethernet ports. 2 of the PC's are getting their internet connection via wireless, 1 via wired. There is also a wireless printer, a wireless connected PDA Smartphone and a PSP'. There are occasionally 2 other test Franken-PC's up on this as well. The Windows PC's are running Windows Vista and WIN7 and see and share with each other under the WORKGROUP Group.

My PC is multi-boot with Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS Desktop, WIN7, Windows Vista and OpenSolaris (plus a few other OS'es)... This PC has 2 Ethernet Ports and a Wireless card. The wireless card works on this PC under the Window's OS'es... but maybe somewhat "suspect" under Ubuntu. (Has been since I started with Ubuntu 9.10.)

From any other OS on my PC, I can see other PC's and their shared folders, get into my router through a browser... From Ubuntu, I cannot. I can not even get to my router setup from Firefox! But using another PC, I can see the Ubuntu PC in the LAN router table. From that PC, My Ubuntu PC doesn't show up as a "PC" on the network- but when I tried to see if it was there by putting the IP address into a browser it said:

This is the default web page for this server.
The web server software is running but no content has been added yet."
Ok, this is "different"...

I think the following are additional problems, but I'm still not sure they are related to my MAIN problem: When I boot or shutdown Ubuntu, I get "ath5k floor calliibration failure" messages flashing across the screen when in a text or tty mode. "ath5k" is the driver that the D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G DWL-G520 wireless card is using- But I can still get to the internet in Ubuntu by either Eth0, Eth1 or Wlan. Next, the other PC's are connecting to my router wirelessly to the LAN- My PC is connected ethernet.. If I try to connect to this via Wireless from my Ubuntu PC, it says it successfully connects, then less than a minute later disconnects. (on-off-on-off...)

Ubuntu Networking :: Netbook Cannot Connect To My Home Wifi Network?

Jan 22, 2011

I got my netbook in the mail yesterday, opened it up, logged in, and Windows 7 was installed. Being a Windows hater my whole life, I followed a friend's advice and downloaded Ubuntu netbook, made a USB drive, changed the BIOS settings, all that. Here's when the stupidity occurs--I decided to go ahead and install Ubuntu without trying it, and to delete Windows to do so. A couple minutes later I realized that was a really, really stupid idea, so in a panic I turned my netbook off. I turned it back on and it was still on install but not really moving, so I powered off and on again and went back to the "Try Ubuntu" or "Install Ubuntu" choice screen. I chose "Try Ubuntu" and found that it did not recognize my home wifi network or ask me to join--or any wifi network, for that matter.

Now, it did recognize my wifi network the few minutes I spent on Windows 7, so I tried to change the BIOS settings back to where I could just use that until I figured out the problem. But no matter which setting I tried (HDD/SDD just gives me a black screen, and FDD and LAN do the same as the USB drive), I can't get back to Windows, so I guess I did delete it. Which leaves me with a netbook that can only connect to the internet via ethernet cable. Which kind of defeats the purpose.

Questions I should answer:

1. How am I trying to get online? My home's wireless network. We have a router. All the other laptops in the house connect fine.

2. Who is my internet service provider (and in which country?) COX, United States.

3. Can you get online with any other method? Yes, the internet works fine with an ethernet cable.

4. How am I getting online to post in this forum? My parent's laptop.

5. What hardware are you using? Toshiba N505 netbook and a router. I can give more information about the router if you need it, but I doubt it's the program since the other laptops are fine.

Give me one moment and I will add some code that it gives me when I put in the commands this website tells me to.My two final questions are:

1. Is there any way to recover Windows without buying it again?

2. How can I get Ubuntu to connect to my home wifi network?

EDIT: Here's some code. I have no idea what it means, but hopefully you do.

To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo <command>".See "man sudo_root" for details.

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation N10 Family DMI Bridge

Networking :: Use OpenVPN To Connect To Home Network

Apr 14, 2010

I have a network that consists of a few desktop machines, laptops, and two Internet connected linux servers. The Linux servers are the gateways, routers, and firewalls for my desktop and laptop machines.Whenever I'm away from home; I can connect to my home machines over the Internet by first ssh'ng (technically I use Webmin; because my firewall on each Linux servers blocks ssh from the Internet.) to one of the linux servers and then ssh'ng to the desired machine on my home network.

This works fine for my home linux machines. But not my Windows machines.I'd like to be able to rdp or rdesktop to my Windows machines.Will OpenVPN allow me to accomplish this ?

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Connect To Wireless Networks And Unable To Configure Network

Jul 27, 2010

I just switched from Ubuntu to Fedora 13 because I was unable to get Ubuntu to connect to wireless networks. I tried everything suggested in help and forums, and kept getting "Bad Password" with WICD and Network Manager. Now, with Fedora...I still can't connect.

Problem #1: The guide says to "...make sure that the relevant wireless interface (usually eth0 or eth1) is controlled by NetworkManager," and that I do this via: System>Administration>Network

However, there is no Network option under System>Administration.

Problem #2: I open Network Manager, which displays a list of networks. I click on mine, configure it with WPA and the right password, and it fails to connect: "The network connection has been disconnected."

Ubuntu Networking :: Setup OpenVPN In Order To Connect Back To Home Network While Traveling For Secure Browsing?

Apr 3, 2010

I'm trying to setup OpenVPN in order to connect back to my home network while traveling for secure browsing and such. However, before I can even start trying to set that up I tried to see if I could open port check my computer through the net. And I'm having a hard time doing that.

As far as I can tell, here are my roadblocks:
1. Is ISP (Qwest) blocking my ports?
2. Is my modem doing the proper port forwarding and firewall?
3. Is my router doing the same?
4. Is my firewall on the computer allowing the request?

To minimize sources of error, I've turned off my local and router firewall and setup my router to forward ports. I'm not to familiar with my modem, but I'm pretty sure that the firewall is turned off by default and I think I've done port-forwarding correctly. But still no success when doing an open port check. At this point I don't know how to diagnose the problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Connect To A Small Number Of Random Websites: Otherwise Networking Is Fine

Dec 29, 2010

I was having no problems (that I knew of) browsing the web since installing Ubuntu 10.10 a week or so ago. I was previously trialling Win7 as my customers will likely be using that in the future. Then I wanted to go to internode.on.net. Got the following: Quote: Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at internode.on.net. or Quote: Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to internode.on.net

As it was just after Christmas I thought it must be down, for upgrades or maintenance etc. I later tried to go to Freebsd.org; same error. I've been having a small number of other websites give the same error. I thought nothing of this until I tried it on my wife's macpro. I could log onto all the websites I wanted to and none gave any indication of having been down. Both boxes are on the same adsl connection. I still can't access internode or freebsd on 10.10 yet have been able to access every website on OSX. Now, I was only looking at them for info but am worried I won't be able to access something important. (so far everything I 'need' is working)

ping just drops out. edit: weirdest thing! I just retried and now can not emulate the problem for internode. freebsd still won't show. that is less than five minutes between problems and resolution! I hadn't even posted! But I still would like to have an idea of what is going on. Here is the ping error for freebsd: Quote:
