Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Access Internet From Mobile Phone?
Sep 20, 2010
I can pair my phone and laptop using bluetooth, from Network manager I can select my phone and make a connection. But then I can't access anything.I looked at the connection info from nm and tried to ping the given dns addresses. That failed. And I pinged those addresses when I reconnected with wireless and it failed. So, where are these setup? I didn't do it
I just want to tell everyone how good the Garmin/Asus A10 mobile phone is as an internet modem.I am in Australia and Mobile internet is an expensive thing to have. cheapest is dodo but i had a few problems trying out a friends usb modem.Anyway i was in the market for a Gps phone and discover this one. it is Android phone and pretty cheap so far it is very good gps, camera, mp3, and phone is excellent.BUT here is the clincher. when you plug it into the computer, the phone screen lights up and gives you 3 options.
ever since maverick came out and I updated I can't connect to internet via my mobile phone. I used to connect via bluetooh establish a dun connection and then I could connect from network manager. Everything goes ok with the bluetooth the connection is made and then NetworkManager doesn't see anything...what can I do?
I managed to configure my W890i phone to get access to internet through an ubuntu-based computer. It's very easy to use the phone to give internet access to the computer, but the opposite is quite more tricky. For that I've done the following
----On the phone---
-Set the USB network option to "through computer", so that the phone uses the computer's internet connection and not the opposite.
-Decide and set "Shared Network" parameters: user, pasword and workgroup.
-In "conectivity-> internet connection" set "allow local network" to "yes"
----On Ubuntu 10.04---
-Install samba, samba-client, smbfs, smbclient, firestarter and dhcp3-server
-Configure Samba (System-> Administration-> Shared folders): same workgroup as in the phone, add new user (the phone), passwd this new user. In my case the user was called "w890i" and the password given was the same.
-Once the phone is connected to the computer through USB (then select "phone mode"), a new connection appears in NetworkManager: usb0.The aim is to create a shared network that gives internet access to this device. Edit the IPv4 parameters of this new connection, set them to Manual and give an IP adress (192.168.0.1) and a subnet mask (255.255.255.0); the rest of the fields are left empty.Connect this network.
-Set firestarter to use dhcp3: sudo ln -sf /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server /etc/init.d/dhcpd
-Launch firestarter and follow the wizard. Set "allow internet shared connection", choose the device for the primary internet access, and then the device for the shared network (usb0). Then change the settings for firestarter: activate DHCP for local network, set IP to the one we gave before (192.168.0.1).
-Open dhcp3-server config file sudo gedit /etc/default/dhcp3-server And set INTERFACES="usb0"
-Set the policies of firestarter: in incoming connections, allow connections from the IP adress given to the phone (192.168.0.1). Then add rules for the ports that need to be open for this connection. I opened HTTP, HTTPS, SMB, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, IMAPS, DHCP for all the connections in the local network.
-Apply policies and start the firewall.
After all this, the phone can access the internet through the computer. Two problems appeared:
1. I couldn't get access to https sites, like webmails. The phone gave a "communication error". But then I tried with Opera instead of the browser built in the phone's firmware, and I could finally get to https sites.
2. I couldn't retrieve mail, neither POP nor IMAP nor IMAPS. I thought it was a firmware problem again, and I tried out several mobile phone email clients written in java, but none of them worked.
So this is at the moment the problem. If I connect from the phone to the internet directly through 3G, the email clients work for all my accounts. I don't think it's a firewall problem, because the ports are opened for this connection
I've a Nokia 2323 Classic which I want to use to access to the internet on my laptop.
A friend of mine with a Dell Inspiron 15 running Windows 7 could connect to the net by just pairing up and right clicking on my phone's icon in the devices menu and selecting connect to internet via access point.
I've an eMachines E725 which lacks bluetooth. To overcome this I used a dongle which was able to successfully pair up with my phone via the bluetooth menu in preferences.
So what next ? How do I use the phone to connect to the internet directly via access point ?
I noticed that I did not need any operator related settings to do so in windows 7 and the phone worked regardless of SIM card present so I assume it should work similarly in linux.
What is left is to ask the system to treat it as an internet access device and use it that way.
How do I do it ? I don't mind a commandline way but a GUI would be better because I'm not the only person using my laptop.
i recently-ish bought a netbook, and a mobile-broadband toggle to go with it, and set it aside to use later. i promptly installed the Netbook remix on the laptop. Well, I goofed, and didn't notice until well after I bought the WAN toggle that it was made for windows.
so, I downloaded Wine in an attempt to run the start.exe and get my internet. the executable (and the entire drive, i found) are marked by ubuntu as read only. Is there anyway to change this to allow me to run the file? if i did, would it even work?
probably I have screwed myself. I tried to preupgrade to f14 and cancel it after some time. Now, I am facing a problem that I cannot access internet from mobile broadband; but I can access net while i am connected via ethernet or wireless. I have cleared preupgrade files with
Quote: yum clean all; yum remove @preupgrade
It can detect my HUawei modem and creating an IP as well. But no Internet.

Ist column shows different customers( like N customers are there) , they require different bandwidht links based on some resolution time will be generated and we have to fix this line with in this resolution time , if not before 1 hr for each customer , this has to genetate some alarm and send the SMS to the particular mobile numbers.everythig is there in the GUI like customer , how much BW they want and what is the time duration , only thing we have to do is ,, linking with the GUi and writing some code to send the generated alarms to the mobile numbers specified.
I am working on Ubuntu-10.4 and I want to transfer 'hello.txt' file form my computer to mobile phone (Nokia 7210).When I run command, My mobile ask for accept the connection from ubuntu (device name connected to ubuntu). I accept the connection, Then I got the error log given above.
So I can send pictures from my phone to my PC, I've bought a Bluetooth USB adapter, just a cheap one.
System>Preferences>Bluetooth without the adapter says 'no adapters are plugged in'. With the adapter in I get a preferences screen to find new devices, so my PC is seeing the Bluetooth adapter. I've then got it to successfully find both my phone and my wife's and entered the provided pin into each phone. My desktop is duly listed as a device on each phone.
However, if I try and send a picture from either of the phones to the PC the phone says it can't see any devices and the sending fails.
Also, how do I send files the other way, from PC to phone? I installed Obex but it simply hung then closed itself.
I have an iphone, I am trying to get internet connectivity to that phone through wifi. I dont have a wifi router. But i do have a laptop with wifi card. I am connecting to internet via cable modem. In win7 I used to create an accesspoint and do the ics from ethernet card to share via wifi card. It used to work perfectly.
Now as I am sing ubuntu, i want to do the same. I have intalled firestarter, and shared the internet connection through wifi card(wlan0).After this I created an accesspoint using the gnome network applet. Now i can connect my ifone to ths accesspoint. But there is no internet connectivity in my fone.
I have a Samsung phone (S3310) and I'm trying use it as a modem to access the net on 10.04. I set up a Mobile broadband connection (under network connections) and I'm pretty sure the settings are correct because it works on a Nokia phone with the same service provider.
When I plug in my Data Cable and set it to Samsung PC Studio mode, my phone isn't detected as a modem. I just tried wvdialconf and it says "No modem detected". I'm guessing that maybe I'm missing some drivers here. what I can do get the phone detected as a modem.
I have a samsung messager touch R631 with 3G capability and I am trying to connect my laptop to the internet through it via bluetooth. Everything worked when I had the MAC OSx on my laptop, and after I switched to ubuntu 10.04LTS (32 bit) I cannot get it to work again. I did some searching and checked a few things out, but Everything I've tried with the BlueZ isn't working. It shows I'm connected, but it just doesn't work...is there any way to get it to work or another program or something I need? these are the 2 pages I refferenced...[url] [url]

What is a good app to convert videos in Ubuntu? I usually watch documentaries, movies etc in my mobile phone and need an app to convert AVIs etc with a low file size and about 320x240 resolution. Used WinFF but it doesn't seem good enough
How to connect to my Mobile Phone which have GPRS. I want to connect Via BLUETOOTH. Becoz I dont have any Data Cables.Plz give me the instructions to connect to my Phone via Bluetooth to access Internet.
I've just loaded up Fedora 13 and I like the new feature Fedora have which allows you to use your mobile as a internet modem over bluetooth. Is it possible to update my Network Manager in ubuntu 10.04 to this new version 0.8.997 through the package manager? Is there a PPA or something I could use?
Would just updating this add the bluetooth ability or would I have to update gnome-bluetooth package as well? Is it doable at all or should I just wait till the next Ubuntu comes out?
