Just today I installed opensuse 11.3 on my Compaq CQ61. Even though I am able to connect to networks (both with an ethernet cable and wireless) I don't have internet access. I have used opensuse for a very brief period in the past and I had no such problem.
I know this is not a win-doze forum but i always ask my questions here so here goes.I am having what appears to be a DNS problem on a friends laptop. He is running windows XP. I CAN connect to networks and even ping websites but i CANNOT browse in Internet Explorer or FIrefox.
I know Windows forward and backward but I am so new to linux it's just wrong. I just installed fedora (like 1hr ago) on and old toshiba laptop with a WiFi PC card. Everything seems to work fine except. My Networks connects to my home Wifi network but it will not connect to internet. When it connects the IP address isn't even close to being in the same range as my other laptops and PCs. Like I said I'm new to linux but I'm wanting to learn. Any fixes for this issue? Which linus book is the best one to read for a beginner? Other then not connecting to internet I have no complaints.
At work, we (like almost everyone) are still full-on windows. I am currently trying to get away from windows because I am not a fan. my current windows machine (different from my Ubuntu machine) is accessing the wireless network fine, and there are no obvious problems there. Also, my Ubuntu machine can access my wireless network at home, so I know there are no driver issues. I set up the connection for the Ubuntu machine, and it seems to be connecting OK. I can ping internal IPs and by all statuses, the connection to the router is functioning. However, when I attempt to load a web page or ping a domain or external IP, it fails. I tried to ping the IP, thinking if that worked, it's probably the DNS, but pinging both domains or IPs fails. I have looked around at forums and posts, but none of them seem to match my issue (that's probably not true, but I am struggling to see the commonality).
Here are the results of "netstat -r":

And here is "ifconfig":

I have had a heck of a time trying to get my laptop running ubuntu to connect to my home network. I have managed to get it to work at my university which would seemingly be more difficult than getting it to work at home, so I know for a fact it isn't a hardware or driver issue. If I try to connect via ethernet cable from my router, it detects that I connected the cable but says "disconnected" and never lets me connect. If I SKIP the router and go from my modem directly to my laptop via ethernet cable it works great.
Using the wireless network tool I can see all of the wireless connections in my area. When I go to connect to my network it prompts me for the WEP key and when I enter it and hit connect it just keeps cycling and eventually times out and finally again prompts me for my WEP key. I know this network works as it works just fine on my Windows 7 partition. Another interesting note - both my wireless and ethernet connections both worked flawlessly and stoopid easily on the live cd but don't after the full install.
If I manually enter in the information for my wireless through IPv4 settings and enter in the Address,Netmask and gateway I can connect to my network - but then I have no active internet connection. Same deal with my wired connection. Is this because choosing this manual method grays out the DHCP?
I have started a newly started a VPN-service with some friends and are offering both OpenVPN and PPTP-vpn.The OpenVPN works perfectly, but we have some problem with the PPTP.It is possible to connect to the VPN, but once connected you can't get any type of access to the outside world ( the interner ).I've googled (Ok, not I, but the tech-guy has) and havn't found any solution so therefor we try here.We are running Debian 5.0 on a XEN VPS.On the machines we've tested OpenVPN works like a charm.
Recently I had installed Ubuntu 10.04 in which I had connected to the internet by way of terminal (pppoeconf) and I could access any site with ease.But one fine day suddenly I could not access the net, I try to locate the notification icon (network manager),but could not find it.I did this and that,googled it trying to find the solution but alas to my disappointment I had to format it.
After reinstallation of Ubuntu I connect the internet by way of editing connection on panel and i could access the net. The problem is that I could not access some site especially org site e.g Home - Desiring God so can anybody guide me in how to connect in most better way.
I have 2 pcs at home. I dont have a switch so I can connect only one PC at a time to my adsl router/modem for internet access. In the past I had successfully connected the two PCs (NIC to NIC) to each other using the same ethernet cable which was supplied with my dlink adsl modem.
Recently the motherboard of on of my PC went bad so I replaced it with a new one. The problem is when I connect the two using the same Ethernet cable they won't connect. The lights on the Ethernet port won't light up. I can still connect both of them to the adsl router (NIC to Router) (one at a time).
I have an hp dm1z and ubuntu 10.10 64bit. After I suspend (close the lid) and wake it up (open the lid) at a different location with a network connection (wired or wireless), my system always fails to connect. I need to reboot and then it sees the network and connects fine. I have tried /etc/inet.d/networking restart, but nothing changes. The only exception to this rule are two networks that have WPA security settings and are stored. I can always switch between those two. I have tried ifconfig eth0 up & down and restart networking. I have also tried to connect manually (dhclient) and no success. None of these work. I am including the output of lshw -C network.
I have an MSI Wind U100 netbook running Maverick, and it has a Realtek RTL8187SE Wireless controller according to lshw. My computer can "see" some wireless networks where they are present, meaning when I click on the little network icon at the top of my screen it shows the available networks. But when I click on them to connect, the icon does its little "connecting" motion, but I never receive any message saying "Connected" and when I open Firefox and try to browse to google.com, it says "Server not found"
I have an ethernet card connected to my LAN and a USB cell modem internet connection. I am running ubuntu 10.10. The problem is this: I can use either network, but only am connected to one of them. If I connect to both at the same time my speed drops to zero.f I disconnect one, the other starts working. I have done a lot of searching and reading, but it looks like I don't know how to find what I am looking for.My LAN was setup as 3 WinXP computers peer to peer. One of those computers was replaced by this one that I am having trouble with (computer A). Another one was replaced by one that is not yet on the network (computer C).Computer B dual boots Win XP and ubuntu 10.4. Mostly it ns xp for Quickbooks and BobCAD, also it is connected to the printer. My router is setup for DHCP
We have two networks,one is 10.0.0.* with mask 255.255.255.0 & the other 20.0.0.* with mask 255.255.255.0 and one linux(RHEL5) PC with two network interface eth0,eth1.(configured as Router) eth0 is 10.0.0.1 and eth1 is 220.127.116.11 we have enabled IP_Forward using "sysctl w net.ipv4.ip_forward=1" cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward is 1 but unable to ping from one network to other network.
two networks are connected to Linux PC.(10.0.0.1 & 18.104.22.168)
still wht configuration required to establish the connection between two networks using LINUX PC.
from router(linux PC) both network PC's are pinging but not from one network to other network.
I recently ubgraded to ubuntu 9.10 from 9.04, but I had the same problem there. I can see the secure connections, but when I try to connect to them, it tries to connect, works at it for about a minute, and then asks for the password again. This just started a week ago or so. I am new with ubuntu, so while I know that there are terminal outputs I should probably post, I don't know which ones.
I have a machine running Xubuntu [2.6.22-14-generic]. I have been trying to get this machine connected to wireless for ages, and I'm having another stab at it. So far I have install ndiswrapper and loaded the driver for a Linksys wireless adapter. The output of 'ndiswrapper -l' reports:
So as far as my newbie knowledge goes, I believe that step to be completed, correct?When I turn on the machine is type in
sudo sh modprobe ndiswrapper
to get the card running to where it will appear in the iwconfig dialog.The commands 'iwlist wlan0 scan' will list all the wireless networks around me, but I have been un-able to connect to any network, even unencrypted ones. I have tried to connect both through Wicd and command-line to no avail. For command-line I have used:
sudo ifconfig wlan0 down sudo dhclient -r wlan0 sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
With the final 'dhclient wlan0' commands, the following is returned:
There is already a pid file /var/run/dhclient.pid with pid 134519120 Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client V3.0.5 Copyright 2004-2006 Internet Systems Consortium
I have attempted to go ahead a step further and connect to an encrypted wireless network, however, I receive the same message, as well as another error message upon trying to enter the key, with the following code:
iwconfig wlan0 key s:"thekey"
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) : SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
I have an Atheros AR242x card. It can see my wireless network (WPA2). When i attempt to connect to the network it asks for the WPA2 passphrase. After entering the password it begins connecting but hangs up for about 3 minutes before saying wireless disconnected. The wireless worked for one day on a fresh install (Ubuntu 10.04)and then started doing this.
I have a WLAN Driver Azure Wave AW-NU222 Wireless LAN Card in my Medion computer.
After installing Ubuntu it seems to detect the wireless networks in my area. However, when I try to connect to my network, it tries for several minutes and then times out with no error message. I have set up the credentials and also tried removing the encryption (WPA-PSK) from the network itself, but it still doesn't connect.
Connect via an Ethernet cable is fine, and I know that the network is good because I can connect via my Windows Laptop and various other wireless devices.
I suspect it's due to drivers, but I'm having trouble downloading a driver which I can try and install using Ndiswrapper. The Medion website just a windows executable when I try and download the driver specific to my machine when I really need the .inf file.
Here is a situation I have never come across (though I have only been using linux since 2004).I am running ubuntu 10.04 and using Wicd Network Manager.I can connect to my WPA encrypted home network, but if I go to my coffee shop to use their unencrypted wifi - I cannot.Even using the terminal. I think it is the way the device sees the network - but I don't know how to fix it.I have a screenshot with wicd here:And one with connecting to the essid here:Afterwhich, dhclient was unable to obtain an ipaddress - just like wicd above.
My iphone connected to this network easily without encryption or needing to use the browser to authenticate, etc.Any ideas on how to fix this?Specs:Samsung NC10lspci:
I have a HP Mini1000 and recently switched over to Ubuntu. I followed the directions found here:[URL] However, I still cannot connect to wireless networks though my card seems to be scanning for them and finding them. I have tried connecting to open networks and ones that require authentication.
I have been using Ubuntu for quite a long time and I never got around fixing this particular wireless problem. I have tried Network Manager as well as Wicd. I am never able to connect to a secure network (WPA). When I use Network Manager, it just tries for a long time and gives up. As for WiCD, it again tries for a long time and finally says "Bad Password". Of course, the passkey is correct. When I connect to an unsecured network, it goes through just fine. I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 which uses a Broadcom 43xx Driver.
I've managed to install my WUSB600N on 10.10 (which was NOT easy!!) and I can see all my local wireless networks, but I can't connect - it attempts to connect then disconnects after what I guess is timing out.I know that you can place these cards in broadcast mode (I think), where you can see networks but not connect. Considering that to get this card working I had to attempt about four different sets of instructions to get this far, could I have placed the card in a broadcast mode? I've been at this for about three days, and unless I go out an buy another network card (I'm currently connected using it through windows) then I'm going to have to give up on Linux, which I really don't want to
I have an Eee PC 1015PEM with Ubuntu 10.10, I believe the wireless card is an rt3090 (though sometimes I see references to rt2860).I had problems getting this to connect to any wireless network originally but eventually was able to fix this by blacklisting a number of modules.However I am still unable to connect to hidden networks and have not been able to find a solution.
Got Ubuntu 11.4 installed on my Lenovo Thinkpad X220.Except very very rare cases i'm not able to establish awlan connection.Scanning is possible at all times, monitor mode works as well.Network Controler (lspci)
So I was the one who couldn't get their ethernet port to function properly. Most likely, this was the result of bad hardware since none of the community's suggestions for software fixes did anything. I believe this is probably true.Indeed, when I bought a cheap $10 wireless USB dongle, it immediately worked better than all the previous things. It detected networks, displayed network strength and even allowed me to attempt login.
The only problem now seems to be that it cannot login. I've rechecked the password countless times, but it just shows the 'connecting to wireless' animation for a minute or two and then poops out and says, 'disconnected'.I assume if everything is getting me this far, the driver is not the problem with the device. Is this a safe assumption?
I have my main network with internet and DHCP which is on 192.168.x.x with a router.Now I have set up an Ubuntu file server and i want it on a separate home network with static ip addresses range of 10.x.x.x. and it is also connected torouter.So i will have two networks, one private static with no direct internet access, and the other with internet and DHCP. I want to know how I would "bridge" these two networks so that I could access my file server from the DHCP network. How is this typically done?
