Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Static IP With 10.10 On Laptop
Dec 22, 2010
I'll be frank. I recently switched to Ubuntu 10.10 to become more familiar with linux as I set up a website, but I'm also an avid user in a private torrent tracker. Coming from windows to linux, I don't know how to properly set up a static IP address from my wirelessly connected laptop. Other walk-throughs for setting up a static IP seem to focus on desktop machines and not a wirelessly connection machine. These walk-throughs also tell me to delete Network manager, which really messes up the ability to find connections for a wireless laptop. I also have two homes I go back and forth with, so I'd simply like the ability to just emit a static IP, and for my main networks to allow me to connect, and upload/download from it easily.
I have been googleing for the last hour and a half trying to find the easiest way to set up a static IP for my laptop's wireless connection.The most promising link I found required me to delete the network manager but I do not want to do this as I often take my laptop with me so I need to be able to connect to new wlan easily. I just want a static IP so I can set up port forwarding.Is there a equivalent process to windows XP where you just manually assign a local address like 192.168.2.9 or something like that? I tried setting it up through the network manager but later read that it doesn't work for encrypted connections.
I want my Ubuntu desktop to have a static ip-address, i have altered the interfaces file to the below and also filled the info regarding my wireless network card but still every time I reboot the desktop gets the ip 10.42.43.1, HOW is that possible???
I use a apple time capsule router, I want my desktop to run a apache server thats why I need the static ip. I also want the static ip to be set on the wireless network interface. I have an old laptop with an internal Intel pro 2200 card so there should not be a driver problem.
This i my interfaces config code...
To be on the sure side to get this to work I have configured my router(DHCP) to give my wireless-HWaddress the ip of 10.0.1.15, STILL the ubuntu desktop starts with the false address above.
I want to set up a static IP on my laptop that connects via wireless to my home network. I have 11.04 installed on my laptop. When I try to use the manual IPv4 setting in the network manager the save option gets greyed out. I tried to edit the /etc/network/interfaces file but all the examples I could find on the net refer to eth0. I tried replacing this with wlan0 but this did not work. I tried installing wicd but I kept getting "Bad Password" errors even though I know the password is correct. A number of people recommended uninstalling network manager to get wicd to work but many other posts said that uninstalling network manager didn't help so I didn't want to go ahead and uninstall unnecessarily. Besides I figure if Ubuntu is distributed with network manager there must be a reason for having it. So what do I do to get a static IP address for the client on a wireless connection?
1. I went to network manager and selected "Connection Information" On the information window I saw the following:
IPv4 IP Address: 192.168.1.6 (This is the item I wanted to change and make static) Broadcast Address: 192.168.1.255 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
2. I went to network manager and selected "Edit Connections" 3. I selected the wireless tab and then the wireless network I wanted to edit 4. I clicked on the edit button and then I clicked on the IPv4 settings tab. 5. I changed method from Automatic (DHCP) to Manual
I have read this: [URL] I have been trying to set a static IP address for my Dell XPS 8100. It has a wired and wireless connection. DHCP worked fine for both of them. My goal is to set up Samba and some other things that require a static IP. My /etc/network/interfaces file looks like this:
If I take the eth0 interface down, I can connect to the internet sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.154 down Which is really puzzling because I think that I am setting both interfaces in the exact same way. What am I missing?
I have one desktop PC I'd like to use as a jukebox. It's installed in the basement as a black box, with only SSH access, and it has got a minimal CentOS 5.3 install with MPD and NCMPC. It's connected to the hi-fi in the basement, so I can stream music to it when I'm downstairs. Since I didn't want to use cables everywhere, I bought a PCI wireless card, with a RT2561 chip.
Until recently this card worked OK with Linux. Recent kernel version even have out-of-the-box support for it, except of course you still have to download the firmware from the Ralinktech website.
I gave the thing a static IP configuration by editing /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0, interface went up fine, I can ping the machine and SSH into it OK. Now the only problem is, when I do a shutdown -h now, the machine "hangs" while trying to bring wlan0 down. (In case you wonder: I temporarily attached a monitor to it, since wanting to know what goes on while shutting down in an SSH session is a chicken-and-egg situation :)). I actually have to hard-reboot it (by pressing RESET).
Recently I have installed Fedora 14 on my other laptop. It's a dual boot with Windows 7. Everything worked perfectly fine, networking included, until my friend didn't accidently turned off the wireless by pressing a wireless button on the laptop. Since then the wireless on Fedora doesn't work. It does on Windows thought. I've tried restarting the laptop few times, but the wireless still doesn't want to work again.
I installed 8.04.3 Ubuntu into a used laptop for a friend, it was an ex business model HP I think, it installed well and wireless was no problem, if the ethernet cable was not plugged in, I could see the wireless signal indicator, it seemed to be there automatically and I could see the available networks displayed.The user has now apparently been using it a lot on ethernet cable for a month or two and wants to begin occasionally to use wireless. She says her daughter gets wireless ok in the house on visits, so I guess that the wifi is always on and available from the (BT, UK) home hub device in the house.
The user is reasonably adventurous, and it is possible that her exploration into a new machine and a new (to her) Ubuntu from previous windows use, she may have inadvertently clicked something and turned off wifi?The user is reporting that without the ethernet cable plugged in, there is no sign of wireless being recognisedA right click on the top panel network icon shows that there is 'no network available' (X sign) and a menu item exists for 'Edit Wireless networks'I have little or no experience about wifi use, so I would be grateful for comments on how I can guide the user to elegantly make use of either wifi or cabled connection
searching broadcom ubuntu in google results in a thread that is five years old. has there been any changes? i still cannot set up my 4 year old laptop's wireless to run and i have just about given up. why should i spend my valuable time getting something that is suppose to work when i could just run windows 7 and be done with it. now this is coming from a 4 year old laptop, has anything changed? i want to hear yes but i know that wireless support in linux is absolutely atrocious and sickening, even more than 4 years ago since wireless is now the norm and linux refuses to give proper attention to wireless drivers.
I'm totally sick of my WiFi Card, a Realtek 8187 connected by miniPCIe, althought internally designed as USB, I've tried all there is, and I've decided to change it. Which brand do you guys recommend? In my experience, I want to avoid Realtek and Atheros, but which brand offer the best "out-of-the-box" experience, and less overall issues? Intel, Broadcomm, maybe another Atheros or Realtek model, or whatever you guys think it's the best choice
Can I run a laptop as a wireless server? My friend runs his laptop off of his cable box and does not have a multi-port router. How can I have his laptop wireless act as an access point?If I can't be wireless, how do I have his laptop act as a server through a usb cable to my laptop?
I am running Ubuntu 9.10 from the install CD on a Vaio VGN TX650P laptop to try it (my first time with Linux so please bear with me) and it all works EXCEPT it is not recognizing my wireless connection.I went to Ubuntu Help and in Section 5 - Wireless Troubleshooting, Check for Device Recognition, it recommended:1.Open a Terminal (Applications → Accessories → Terminal) and type the command: sudo lshw -C networkYou should see an output, along with the words "CLAIMED, UNCLAIMED, ENABLED or DISABLED"What I get is below (It also lists the ethernet connections as network 0) but I don't see any CLAIMED etc.
I installed Kubuntu 10.04 on my laptop (HP Pavilion dv5-1010) and the networking was working fine for the most part, but then not sure what happened, the screen just kinda went blank so I restarted the laptop, and now the wireless won't turn on. There's a button on the laptop to turn it on and off, but I can't seem to get that to function in Linux. I'm assuming it's just a simple matter of getting the wireless to switch back on again, unfortunately I can't figure out how to do that .
Edit: I've tried to whole booting into windows and turning the wireless on there, and before that's worked, but it doesn't seem to be working this time around.
I am trying to get this laptop`s wireless to connect to my router or any wireless connection. It does not have an ethernet port,so it has been tough.I have been reading everything i can,but cant get it to work.Maybe I need a different wireless card or a usb adapter.The one I have is a Texas Intruments acx100.Can anyone tell me if this should work.I have ndiswrapper installed and the windows driver for it but still nothing.
i wanted to know if i can use my laptop as a wifi router; with encryption password and all security so if another computer is in the range can detect the signal and then try to connect to it with the encrypt pass.
also i have one more doubt. can a wireless router be used as a wifi ethernet card and detect wifi signals nearby and connect to internet. suppose i have a wireless router and i connect it to my desktop(with lan cables) which has ubuntu installed, and theres a wifi connections nearby can i connect the desktop to the internet.
That is what I do to connect to Xbox Live and I just got an Insignia Blu-ray player that can only connect to BD-Live through an Ethernet connection, so I was wondering if I could apply that same concept to my Blu-ray player.
get the wireless working on my mum's laptop as having to plug it into the router everytime she wants to go online is now becoming an issue for her. I recently upgraded it from 8.04 to 9.04. Ive tried using the Windows Wireless Driver option in System - Admin but to no avail.

I am running ubuntu 10.04 on a dell xps m1530 and when ever i shut the laptop then re open it I am disconnected from my wireless connection. I would love if when I opened it it would just stay connected. Is this possible?
I would share my long awaited success with connecting my ubuntu laptop up to my universities (University of Western Sydney) wireless network. The rumors appeared true and they have finally implemented 802.11x authentication instead of that horrible java app netdirect. I am sure you've been cursing at its erratic stability. There is no linux documentation for airUWS-Lite nor anything more imformative than there windows/mac point and click steps found at [URL]. However with a few simple clicks you can have stable working connection.
When connecting make sure you have theses settings. Security: WPA & WPA2 Enterprise Authentication: Protected EAP (PEAP) #This is the settings that does not present itself correctly Anonymous Identity: leave blank PEAP Version: Automatic Inner Authentication: MSCHAPv2 Username: <YOUR 8 DIGIT STUDENT NUMBER> Password: your regular password
I've just installed Ubuntu desktop 10.10 on a Fujitsu Amilo laptop but it does not see any wireless network. It recognizes the wireless card but I don't know how to activate it or whether the drivers are already installed..
We've got a Debian Lenny + FreeRadius and cannot seem to authenticate a wireless laptop.At this point, all I want is the users file entries to work, with ClearText passwords. Eventually we'll use LDAP but we want this up first with ClearText passwords and MD5.
1. FreeRadius installed, 2.1.10+dfsg-2~bpo50+1 from Debian Backports 2. AirPort v7.5.1, set up for WPA2 Enterprise, ip 10.10.10.75 3. Apple OSX laptop, 10.5.8
When running 'freeradius -Xxx' from the Debian cli I can see the authentication fail as though the OSX machine (or the AirPort router?) isn't passing along the password (from the FreeRadius cli run).Additionally, the OSX machine always prompts me for an SSL Cert to use, but with MD5 checkmarked as the only option in the 802.1x networking screen, this shouldn't be happening, making it more difficult to tell where this problem lies.The OSX machine keeps cycling through "Authenticating" and "Authenticating with MD5", and then settles on "AirPort has a self-assigned IP Address..." (meaning the laptop, not the AirPort wifi router)
I got this message on Friday from just one domain. uote:mailsrv.forthnet.gr #<mailsrv.forthnet.gr #5.5.0 smtp; 554 5.5.0 Your message was considered to be spam by the FORTHnet Antispamming Policy and was not delivered to the recipient. The following spam tests returned positive for this message:FORGED_RCVD_HELO,RCVD_IN_BRBL. For further information visitWe are not a spamming community but it seems we have a statice IP address that has a Reverse lookup to "myipaddress.static.lyse.net" and not my email domain. Would setting a cname mail.mydomain.no -> myipaddress.static.lyse.net cure this problem or are there more tricks to be performedOnce I have cured the FORGED_RCVD_HELO I can move to getting the IP removed from BARACUDA.
