Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Get File Sharing Over Wlan Working
May 23, 2010
I have a desktop and laptop both running ubuntu 10.04. I have them going through a wireless router, the desktop is wired of coarse. I installed just about all the samba packages in synaptic that have the little ubuntu symbol next to them on both desktop and laptop except the Kde and document packages. I installed the two necessary packages to enable personal file sharing to work. But I can't seem to access files back and forth from these computers.
I am at a total loss. For all intents and purposes - sharing files over a lan without a password between this ubuntu 10.04 machine and my wifes laptop (windows 7) should be trouble free. I've installed samba, and created an smb.conf file in /etc/samba
Code: [global] workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = Samba Server netbios name = oak security = share
I want to note that I was using Arch Linux and this exact setup worked flawlessly. Why on earth would it not work the same in Ubuntu? Is it not the same Samba?
trying to share a few folders with Windows PCs. Usually I just right click and choose "Sharing Options" from nautilus and choose to share it. This isn't there in gnome 3 via gnome3 ppa for Ubuntu. I've tried installing and adding the folders I wanted using samba configuration tool and gadmin-samba tools. I've also installed just about anything that could potentially have anything to do with file sharing from synaptic including:
samba, nautilus-share, smbclient, windbind
and whole lot of other stuff in hope that I had just been missing stuff. I also booted my laptop which is running 11.04 with Unity and I right clicked and selected "Sharing Options" like the usual way and shared a folder and then installed gadmin-samba and the samba configuration tools and the folder I shared wasn't included there. Meaning it isn't using the same thing? Also the only thing installed when shareing a folder is samba and some libpam-something. Two files! Then shares perfectly! Why is it so difficult to set up a simple share with Gnome 3? No matter what I do I boot into Windows on my laptop and try to connect to my network share the same way I always have and it doesn't work.
So, I have 2 computers both running fedora 12. I have installed NFS, all of the nfs utilities, and the system-config-nfs thing. I have unblocked the ports in the firewall. I am certain that NFS is running (or at least that when I nmap myself, an nfs port is open).However, when I go into nautilus and go to network, it shows windows network, but no other computers.If I run nmap on localhost, or on my OWN IP, it shows that it's up. and NFS is up. but when I NMap the other computer, it's hidden and blocking ping probes (though using nmap -PN will penetrate that mask, and show that it too has NFS open.)
So, how can I get these two computers to recognize each other? or am I doing this whole thing all wrong? I'm just trying to set up file sharing.
I set up a Ubuntu Server for my home network to share among Win XP and Ubuntumachines.Initially everything worked fine with all Win XP machines being able to share files on the server; however, after I installed and setup SSH between my Ubuntu machines and my Ubuntu Server I now cannot share and/or even see my Server directory from Win XP or Ubuntu machines through the Samba.I have tried for 2 days to figure out the problem without success.Did I break something while setting up the SSH? How can I fix Samba?Here's some things I have setup or tried so far:1. Samba users are setup and were working previously.2. Samba share drives were setup and working previously.3. I can see the Server using SSH or SFTP from my Ubuntu machines.4. I have gone over the Samba config file numerous times5. I am administering Samba on the server via the terminal and Webmin
I have a Thinkpad T400 notebook that dual boots windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.04. My wireless has worked both in windows and ubuntu for the past several months. However 2 days ago, the wireless in ubuntu stopped working. I think this may be a result of trying to set up a static eth0 connection between my laptop and an embedded board, but I dont see how messing with eth0 would stop the wlan from working.
Symptoms: When I left click on the network connections icon in the tray, all it lists under "Wireless networks" is "device not ready". Needless to say, there are no networks available to connect to. Also the wireless is working fine under windows.
I'm a new user of Ubuntu and I think I need some help but let me mention before that I got this up working on a Debian system.My current kernel version is $ uname -r 2.6.32-27-generic.The problem is that my wlan card is not working any more such that my system freezes every time I enable networking with the hardware switch on my laptop.Therefore I bought a USB - WLAN stick and try to get this working.
Network Manager has the option "enable wireless" greyed out if I disable the hardware switch.If I enable the hardware switch and remove the module of my wlan CARD before (modprobe -r iwl3945) it says "wireless disconnected" for all networks.
I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on an Acer TravelMate 290E. I've got internet connection through the Ehternet Cable, but when I plug in the D-Link WLAN USB device, although the system recognises it, it is disconnected. How can I connect the WLAN USB device adn get it to work?
Installed F14 on my daughters HP Pavilion a131On. I rebooted multiple times. Do I need to activate something? I'm new to all of this but read through many threads to do as much as I could myself. I used the GUI to load the rt3070 drivers rather than rpm. The GUI is easier I think and should be equivalent. Please let me know what else I need to do. Fedora has been great on my Lenovo but this usb wlan stuff has been a pain.
I'm running Fedora 15 KDE on a Sony Vaio VPCS13V9E. No problems in connecting to the wlan. Today I upgraded the system. There was an upgrade for Network Manager. After the upgrade the system is not able to connect to the modem - router (Linksys WAG320N) any more. Network manager keeps on crashing and sends messages like "network disabled" or "connection failed". Kde demon is reporting errors too. I guess the new version of Network Manager is bugged, because before the upgrade it did work well ... (unbelievable!).
I have a Dell XPS M1330. I installed Fedora 10 on a separate partition and left Vista on the first. It was working just fine and for some reason all of the sudden it is not recognizing the Wireless controller. Vista is still working fine although I did get a couple of "WLAN controller has stopped working" errors. I suspect I may have a physical problem with the controller but I'm confused as to why Vista is still using it but Linux is not. The actual physicall "WIFI" light on the laptop does not even illuminate when I boot Linux. No wireless networks appear in the network list under Linux. Particularly since it WAS working fine for months...
I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 on a Lenovo ThinkPad T61 using an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG. My laptop's ability to connect to a wireless network stopped last night, and I'm not sure why. It's definitely something on my end, as my roommate can connect to the internet on a Windows box. I can wire in without a problem, but that's a pain and my Ethernet cable got lost in the shuffle when I moved back to school. I've been able to get into this network before and nothing about it has changed. I've been able to hibernate and restart and such and nothing has ever needed to be reset.
The router's a D-Link WBR-2310. Wicd and Network Manager see the network (I'm back to using wicd) , but wicd appears to get stuck at "Obtaining IP address..." and says "Unable to connect: Cannot obtain IP address". I know my password is correct (I set up the router and I'm the CS undergrad in the apartment so I manage it), lspci sees the wireless card, ifconfig and iwconfig return information about the interface, dmesg|grep wlan0 doesn't seem to have anything terribly out of the ordinary, but here's that output:
Code: allyanncah@taliesin:~% dmesg | grep wlan0 [ 23.514202] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready [ 36.609016] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready [ 38.756143] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:24:01:cb:4e:7e (try 1) [ 38.758791] wlan0: direct probe responded [ 38.758796] wlan0: authenticate with AP 00:24:01:cb:4e:7e (try 1) [ 38.760587] wlan0: authenticated [ 38.760609] wlan0: associate with AP 00:24:01:cb:4e:7e (try 1) [ 38.763318] wlan0: RX AssocResp from 00:24:01:cb:4e:7e (capab=0x431 status=0 aid=1) [ 38.763322] wlan0: associated [ 38.765502] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlan0: link becomes ready .....
I've tried: - reinstalling wicd - uninstalling wicd and installing network-manager - restarting - shutting down and booting back up - restarting the router - sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart - taking the interface down and back up with ifconfig
I haven't changed anything recently in regards to my wireless card, and all the fixes I've tried are things I've done before without an issue. The only thing I'm wondering about is if doing a hard reset might have broken something (I know this is a cardinal sin, but there's a whole 'nother problem I haven't been able to fix with the OS hanging every once in a while over a VPN daemon when it tries to shut down or restart -- I've left it for hours to see if it actually gets anywhere and no luck, won't do a soft reset). I'm nervous about reinstalling the driver just because I've never had to do it and drivers are a finicky business. I imagine there's a config error somewhere?
I updated Ubuntu to 10.04 after which I noticed the wireless indicator lights on my HP laptop were continually flashing between blue and orange and network performance seemed slow. I did some searching and found and implemented the following change to stop the flashing:
gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/wlan.conf
Copy and paste the below line:
options iwlcore led_mode=1
Since making this change the wireless connection is shut off and I can;t get it to work at all. I first tried simply to remove the change to get back wher I was, but I can;t do that. Can sopmebopdy toell me at least how to get rid of this wlan,conf file ( it was created by the above command) so I can start over?
Coincidentally since making this change my Windows Vista OS fails to start because of errors attributed to a software or hardware change, of which there were none other than the Ubuntu wlan.conf change. . It may be unrelated but I am suspicious of the coincidence. I am running Vista and Ubuntu in a dual boot configuration and all ha run very well until I did the Ubuntu wlan.conf change.
I am now attempting a complete recovery of my Vista system, since it seems irreparably broken. Again coincidence or not?
(For the record, I have already read the other threads. Either they don't work for me or are too difficult.) My laptop is an Acer TravelMate 250. I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 (2.6.35-28 generic i686) after erasing Windows 7. At first, the usb wireless adapter worked. Then, I restarted the PC because of some updates and it didn't work anymore. In "edit connections" I find "Auto SpeedTouch8350DB" which is the wireless connection (on my sis's computer it works). When it tries to connect, I'm asked the password but it doesn't work.
I have an HP Pavilion notebook with a Broadcom WLANcard that had been working very nicely in Fedora Core 10 until this evening, when I took my notebook to a conference room where there was no internet access. (I tried to connect to wireless networks, but there were none in the area, as I discovered.) am now unable to connect to my local (home) wireless network as the device is now non-existent . Can someone please walk me through the steps to fix this or re-install it (I have tried reinstalling broadcom-wl, but that didn't help). My lspci listing is reproduced below:

I patched my wireless driver in order to support packet injection. Using this tutorial:
- Install the Firmware:
- Create new directory:
- Now disconnect Internet and unload all your driver (use rmmod command)
- Move/copy the Compat-Wireless patched in /usr/src/drivers directory and unpack the drivers:
Blacklist the wl driver: (STA driver)
Currently I'm running Ubuntu 10.10, Kernel 2.5.35-29-generic. I have a Broadcom 4318 for my WLAN and a Broadcom 4401-B0 for my ethernet. I followed the tutorial and I managed to get packet injection working on my WLAN; however, my ethernet connection isn't working. I tried sudo modeprobe b44, but I get the following message:
I enabled Personal File Sharing under System > Preferences > Personal File Sharing. I clicked on Share public files on network and closed it. Then I put some files that I wanted to share in the Public folder and I went to another computer that was on the same router (they are both running Fedora 13) and I clicked on the Network tab (bookmark) in nautilus and there are no files there.
I just installed ubuntu as my primary OS, but I have the disk with XP on it and I don't want to go back, but I need faster network connectivity. I have a T60p with Intel Gigabit jacked into my Gigabit router which also has my desktop (running XP) and my NAS. If I FTP files from my NAS (or SCP), I get transfer speeds around 250-500 KB/s (which is not very fast). On this same switch, from my XP desktop I get transfer speeds around 12 MB/s. I get the same speeds using my 802.11n card (Atheros) as with the ethernet NIC (250-500 KB/s).The drivers for the ethernet card and the atheros card are e1000e and ath9k respectively.I have disabled IPv6. Since the problem occurs using either interface, I am just going to concentrate on fixing it for the Ethernet interface (since I believe it to be a systemwide problem).
skinnersbane@albert:~$ sudo ethtool eth0 Settings for eth0: Supported ports: [ TP ] Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Clearly my card is running at Gigabit, but why the bad transfer speeds? I am using filezilla for FTP (technically FTPES). I closed every other program. My CPU utilization does seem high and I wonder if this is part of the problem. I had no problems with throughput using either interface in Windows XP just one week ago.
I am having problems trying to share a printer on my desktop. The printer is an HP Laserjet 1020, and the desktop is running 64-bit Ubuntu Karmic. None of the other boxes on the network (wired/wireless, 32-bit/64-bit, Ubuntu Lucid/Win7/XP) can access the printer.
I have checked all of the appropriate boxes in printer properties and server settings. When I try to install the printer on the other systems, I am asked for a username and password on the desktop. I set up a user named "printer" and gave it a password, but when I try to use that username/password to install the printer on one of the other systems, I get an "access denied" error. All of the networked systems can see each other, and access shared files.
So I want to put some of my folders on my network. I open up nautilus and go to my home folder and right click -> properties-> share and then selected share this folder, made it so that others could modify stuff on it and have guest access (which is what I want), and changed the share name to "home". Then I clicked create share. I then went to Places->Network->******'s public files on [the name of my computer]. But then some stupid error message popped up saying:
"DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)"
I have internet on my ubuntu machine (eth0) I am sharing with (eth1) My windows computers are getting IP addresses via DHCP from the Ubuntu Machine, and I can see (and use) samba/windows shares on all computers.Internet connection is not working on any of the windows computers. I have eth1 set to "shared to other computers" under the IPv4 settings
I am fairly new on CentOS and am in the process of setting up a small home office network that shares Internet access through the Linux (CentOS) box.I have two network interface cards The Linux box is also the DHCP server. My challenge is to get the client machines to access the Internet! I have a PPP connection to the ISP. Essentially I followed these Instructions CENTOS REDHAT Internet Connection Sharing. Pretty straight forward but I am still not able to get clients to access the Internet. I defined the DNS server through DHCP (196.44.x.y). I assumed it has to do with default gateway and it is set as follows: on the Linx box the gateway is my ppp0 link. DHCP uses eth1 (LAN card) fixed IP as the gateway. All clients are reflecting this information. The firewall (iptables) is reflecting the FORWARDING and POSTROUTING rules as advised.
Is there a step I mioght have missed to get this working? I tried to Google but its not getting me far.
I just installed 9.10 and I tried to share specific folders by right clicking and selecting share. Not a problem.
However when I goto a Windows machine I see the share but cannot connect, says incorrect login/ password. I used the same login/ pass for the linux box and I created a new user and I still get the same results. What am I doing wrong?
I want to use the GUI for this please. When I edit the smb.conf I don't see the share.
I have two desktop computers on the same home network and I am unable to share files between the two. Both have access to the network. One is able to file and printer share using SAMBA and a windows 7 laptop. The other machine is unable to either do file sharing via Samba or SSL file sharing between the two Ubuntu machines.
