Ubuntu Networking :: Wicd 1.5.9 Not Obtaining IP Address / Sort It?

May 5, 2010

I had no luck with network manager and i was surfing the net and it said wicd was better so i installed that and installed 1.6.1 But it was not obtaining an ip address

So i searched again and ppl said that its a problem with 1.6.1 and they said 1.5.9 was better. So i installed wicd 1.5.9 and its still not obtaining an ip address.

The router is unencrypted no security, ppl suggested trying to set a security on it so i tried WEP and when i do that it gets stuck on trying to authenticate the key phrase.code...

Networking :: Wicd Gets Stuck On "obtaining IP"?

Mar 31, 2011

It is a WEP connection. I am able to connect fine from the terminal (iwconfig/dhclient), but when i try to connect using wicd it hangs on "obtaining IP" until finally giving up.

Also, i noticed if i disconnect after already connecting via command line, Wicd will then connect properly.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wicd Unable To Obtain IP Address?

Mar 12, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 (64 Bit) and I'm trying my best to get this Linksys WMP300N wireless adapter to work.I have searched and gone through a number of threads here with some level of progress but I still can not get this to work.Adapter info is BCM43XG [14e4:4329] rev 01I have installed driver bcmwl5.inf using ndiswrapper and ndisgtk.I had absolutely no success trying to use network manager applet so uninstalled it and went with Wicd instead which at least sees my SSID network with a strong signal.My network is encrypted using WPA and I entered the passphrase which seems to pass authentication but it keeps trying to get an IP address until finally it just tosses a failed message.I feel as though I'm really close but it just won't connect.

lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wicd Does Not Obtain Ip Address On Wired Connection

Feb 13, 2010

Running kubuntu karmic, kernel 2.6.31-19, on Asus EEE PC 1000.

WICD 1.7.0. hangs on "wired connection: obtaining ip address...". I have downgraded to 1.6.2 and 1.5.9, but this did not solve the issue.

WICD does work under other circumstances, e.g. wireless connection. (But at home I don't have wireless, but just the modem and ethernet.)

Same wired connection ethernet connection works flawlessly on laptop running Windows XP SP2.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wicd & WiFi-radar Fail To Get IP Address

Jan 16, 2011

When trying to connect to a wireless AP, neither wicd or wifi-radar are able to obtain an IP. With wicd, a string of various hex/dec characters flow by, with an eventual error. This happens with both WEP and unencrypted APs (- the hex/dec). With wifi-radar it simply fails, but not every time. NetworkManager connects with zero problems every time; though I prefer to not use NetworkManager, so please spare me of such replies. Someone please tell me why there should be only one wireless manager in Ubuntu that works? I have used wicd since before gutsy gibbon, and it always worked fine until the last two versions, Lucid, and Karmic. What is occurring in Ubuntu which over time breaks these excellent applications? I have tried this with four different wireless cards, and all suffer either identical or similar issues. Those chipsets are Broadcom, two RealTeks, and an Intel.

I really wish to emphasize that this post is not a request for a lecture on why I should use only NetworkManager, or why I should go find another distro. With something like Linux, maybe we could push a little harder, and have maybe say, two, wireless managers that actually work? I would honestly like to see more than two, but one is not enough. It baffles me a bit why new versions of Ubuntu mangle some perfectly good applications, but not others. In IT, surely networking, IP4, WEP, basic wifi technology, etc. has not changed so much that every six months whole new programs should need to be written to connect to a wireless access point. Nor should old ones need much tweaking. What's going on? With such boastings of repositories abundant and brimming with free apps, why does anyone want to make NetworkManager the only app that works?

Debian :: Wicd Not Getting Ip Address?

Sep 13, 2010

I don't know much about networking... I have Debian Lenny and use wicd to connect to my wireless. Yesterday, I changed my ISP and now I cannot connect to the wireless signal, only to the wired. It had happened before that it took some tries to connect to a new network, but, after a few tries, it would connect. And then it would always connect at once. But now, it always gets stucked on the obtainment of the ip address. The same routher gives me a perfect wired connection... My wife has Ubuntu and she got it working right away, so it's not a password or router problem...

Ubuntu Networking :: Obtaining IP Location From Logs?

I've signed up with a hosting company and have access to logs of visits to my website. How can I process these logs to obtain the geographic location of visitors from their IP number? If there's a way of bash scripting this, it would be ideal, or a dedicated softare that could read in the log file and output the location for each visit

Networking :: Obtaining DHCP IP Addresses In 2 Distro's ?

Nov 22, 2008

A quick rundown of my equipment and plan for this particular machine.

SOYO P4I845PEISA Motherboard
Intel Pentium 4 2.0GHz Processor
512MB DDR333 RAM
ATI Radeon 8500 128mb AGP Video Card
Using onboard AC'97 Audio and Davicom NIC
Linksys BEFSR81 Wired Router

I am setting up a multiboot system with several OS's, multiple versions of Windows & several Linux distros. The main point of it all is just to have a system where I can load up a given version of Windows or Distro of Linux if I need to test something or show someone how something works.

The Problem:
5 versions of Windows installed, all hardware configured and functioning properly (including NIC) All Windows versions obtain DHCP IP addy with no problems.

Installed Red Hat Linux 9 (first of my linux distros) and it autoconfigured all of my hardware and has no problem getting an IP address.

Installed Fedora 8 and it could not obtain an IP address. I fiddled around with the network settings changing this and that, covered all of the options, and it had no effect. By this time I was irritated, so I just formatted and reinstalled the whole thing, which had no effect and resulted in the same problem. I decided to try it again, this time turning off my sound card and nic for the initial installation. After the initial install, I turned on the sound card and booted up to install it, then restarted, turning on the nic to install it. Fedora installed them both, and managed to get an IP address from my router.

I looked at the ifcfg-eth0 file and the only thing that was different from the previous installs was that a line reading "type=ethernet" (I believe thats what it said) was not there in the working install and had been before.

Puzzling and irritating, but Fedora was now working so I moved to the next distro on my list.

openSUSE 11.0
First install I tried the same thing I did with Fedora (turning off the NIC which did not work like it did in Fedora)
Second install, left all of my hardware enabled, and made it to the part where it asks to verify your internet connection. I clicked Test, and got this error:

Opening of Connection
eth0 device: Davicom Semiconductor, Inc. 21x4x DEC-Tulip Compatible 10/100 Ethernet (rev 40) DHCP Client is already running on eth0

I finished the install, and then got on another machine and I searched the net for this error, but could find nothing that specifically applied to my problem. I played around with the network settings, tried a couple of things that I had come across in my search (changed between tulip and dmfe, checked the box for "Request Broadcast Response", ran "service network restart" in Terminal) none of these had any effect.

The most irritating thing about this is that RHL9 had no problem with this whatsoever and it is badly dated, and the much newer distros are choking on it.

Ubuntu Networking :: Static IP Address And The Install Configures For A DHCP Configured Address - Network Not Starting

Dec 16, 2010

Version 10.04 LTS. Installed desktop version and network worked but I needed a static IP address and the install configures for a DHCP configured address. I tried changing to static address using the System->Preferences->Network Connections application but was unable to get the system to come up with the network up.

So I manually modified the /etc/network/interfaces and the /etc/resolv.conf files. I restart the system but when I do an ifconfig, I don't see a configured IP address on eth0 (only the loopback address). If I run /sbin/ifup eth0 everything then works fine and ifconfig shows the correct address bound to eth0.

My files are as follows:

Ubuntu Networking :: WICD No Longer Works?

Jan 8, 2010

I just updated my system to a new kernel with the update manager and now my WICD no longer obtains an IP address. Everytime I try it says "Connection Failed: Unable to get IP address".It was working fine before and even when I reboot into an older kernel it still doesn't work.I'm using a Belking Wireless G adapter.I would have tried downloading another network manager but since I can't even access the internet I'm stuck with changing current settings and nothing seems to work.

Ubuntu Networking :: Updated - No More Internet - Wicd Won't Run

Mar 25, 2010

Well it seems like every 5 min the update manager is barging in telling me to update so I did last night and then this morning I turn on my computer and a window pops up that says "wicd needs your password" or something to that effect so I put it in. Then I notice wicd is not running. So I click on it in the menu and it pops up in awn for a second then disappears. As I have said before I am fairly new to linux so Im having trouble figuring this out. I don't know any commands i should run or where to start even. My computer is not much use to me without the internet so I would really like to get this fixed.

Ubuntu Networking :: Installing Wicd Without Internet

Jul 5, 2010

I have a Dell Mini with Unbuntu Hardy 8.04 with a Broadcom STA wireless card BCM4312 802.11b/g. In April the Network Manager stopped working.After trying various fixes, based on advice and instructions posted for others who had the same issue, today I decided to completely uninstall the Network Manager and install wicd- which seems like a working alternative. I uninstalled the Network Manager and used the installation instructions for wicd (URL...). While connected to the internet with a wired connection, in my Synaptic Package Manager I entered the new address deb URL... hardy extras. Then I opened a terminal and entered.It looks like an argument is needed, but I have no idea how to add that to the command. I've found the key file (I think) here URL...but I don't know what to do next.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Completely Remove Wicd

Oct 21, 2010

Before I changed the faulty wifi card I installed Wicd. Incidentally it didn't remove Network Manager, a bug that's reported in Launchpad. With the new wifi working well enough with Network Manager, I used Synaptic to remove Wicid, or so I thought.I happen to be checking .xsession-errors and there's an error reported about wicid tray desktop. I removed it and no more errors appear.

After looking for advice here and on the web I used apt-get remove and purge yet a file search of wicd still finds 25 entries, in /etc/, /usr/ and /var/.Some are archives and some are logs but some aren't, why are they still there and can I clean things up?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To Wireless Using Wicd?

Jun 25, 2011

I am running Natty on a Lenovo T410. I can connect to wireless with no problem using the panel applet but not using wicd. syslog shows it trying to get a DHCP address and finally timing out with no lease offers. I think a big clue is that if I monitor wlan0 using wireshark I get no traffic at all when it tries to connect, whereas with the applet I see the dhcp traffic. It seems as though wicd is connecting to the wrong wlan0. Running "dhclient wlan0" directly gives the same behavior as wicd. I need to use wicd because I typically run enlightenment so can't use the ubuntu applet.

Networking :: Dynamic IP Address With PTR Record Versus Fixed IP Address Without?

May 7, 2010

I am running my own Postfix mail server. Some time ago I noticed that most email was rejected because of the server's dynamic IP address. So I got a fixed IP address. However then I noticed that some mails got rejected due to failing the reverse DNS check. So my ISP told me to get a range of IP addresses and they could then create a PTR record for one of those addresses. That is now running but it turns out that the IP address used for the PTR record is a ... dynamic IP address. So Spamhaus PBL rejects my emails again.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To Wicd's D-bus Interface / Make It Possible?

Mar 12, 2010

I've installed ubuntu 9.10 using a minimal install and started from there installing the rest of the things I needed.
I'm running KDE4.4 and Wicd 1.6.1.

Problem is, wicd worked fine, but I don't know what happened before I got this annoying problem.

After logging into KDE, wicd asks me for my password in order to connect to the network-device. After filling that in, I get the message code...

As you can see in the logging, internet is working fine. I manually have to start wicd-client and I get an extra wicd-icon in the taskbar showing me the signal strength as it should do.

I've been searching a lot, but can't find anything about this, except a lot of people having the same errormessage, but they have some errors in the wicd.log too.
