Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To Wpa Wireless Without A Conf File?
Jan 4, 2011
I'm interested in learning how to start a wireless connection via the terminal rather than the NetworkManager applet. Every resource I've found on this subject talks about how you need to make a .conf file, then use wpa_supplicant. Is there a way to establish the connection without having to a create any file whatsoever? What are the steps for establishing the connection?
From what I've read, establishing a WEP connection is as simple as calling iwconfig and then dhclient. Are there similar steps for WPA2?
I can connect to the internet and browse. I'm wired and using DHCP on a Windows network. Updating Ubuntu or downloading programs takes hours for 52MB of updates. Why? I read some articles that mention Network Manager needs to be enabled at the .conf file. Can I edit this using GUI or command line only?
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?
My wireless (Toshiba laptop, 10.04 64 bit) is just hanging when trying to connect. It was working fine but now nothing. My Wireless antennae is on and my other laptop can connect with no problems. I have restarted the router and the laptop twice.
in linux world and have recently downloaded and installed ubuntu desktop 10.10i cannot connect to both wired and wireless ethernet on my laptopit tries to connect but fails in 30 seconds , it says"disconnected" while i am able to connect to the same in windows i have broadcom 4315 and i have tried both fwcutter and ndiswrapper but the problem persiststhe device id is 14e4:4315
I have recently installed ubuntu 11.04 on my asus eeepc1005hab. And I've had problems with the wifi. I can connect via ethernet, but the wireless won't connect. I can see the connection, but my wifi never connects. I've tried many things but it still won't work.
Those are my authentication capabilities, obviously. I am using a WEP encryption for my wireless router and according to this, it will not allow me to connect. Is there anyway to allow that? The wireless card works just fine in Windows, even on the same network encryption type. Using a Intel Wireless/Pro 4965 ag. Note* this is my mother's router and whatnot. She won't change it the encryption type.
The problem with my wireless network. I have Dell DV6 Pavilion 2115 eg laptop and i installed Ubuntu 11.4 and internet and wireless worked, until i reboted my system it has disapear. I cant no longer to connect to a wireless network. It dont shows me any wireless network. My wireless card is Atheros AR 9285 802.11b/g/n Wifi Adapter
I installed a Tenda W322P wireless card in my dual-boot PC running both Windows XP and Ubuntu 11.04. The card worked straight out of the box on XP, but does not function correctly under Ubuntu. My apologies for any missing/irrelevant information, I am having to post this from the Windows boot so the Ubuntu settings are not directly available at the same time as internet access.I followed the process detailed here htURL...to install and configure the driver (I believe from reading other sites that this card is the Ralink RT3062 chipset), blacklisted the original RT2860 driver that was in use (couldn't even get the card to scan for wireless networks with the default driver) and restarted the interface.
Since then, sudo iwlist scan can find my wireless router but when I attempt to connect to it, it seems to enter a loop of requesting the WEP key then pausing for a while before re-requesting the key. I know I have the key value correct because it is copied and pasted from the same text file I used to copy and paste into the passkey field on the Windows boot. Attempting to connect to the router using Ubuntu also has the rather unfortunate side-effect of crashing the wireless router, killing off all other device connections until the router has been reset.
I have a router with ddwrt on it that runs a DHCP server. What I want to do is only allow people who have pre-determined MAC addresses to get an address to get on my network. That being said I have a VM set up as a DHCP Server. Since doing this I will be setting the dhcp settings on my router to be a forwarder to the VM. Is there a way to allow only static leases in the dhcpd.conf file? I do not just any computer on my network to get an address I want to base it on MAC addresses.
and I have share1 and its subfolder " subshare " the thing i have to do is that, i have 2 assign user1 and user2 to share1 that means user1 and user2 can only access share1 through password and user3 can access only its subfolder "subshare" i have done this upto first level permission of share1 not able to do for its subfolder "subshare"
I am having a little trouble connecting to my wireless network. Running Fedora 10 32 bit.I'm trying to connect to a hidden wireless network. I updated the firmware for my driver but apparantly the driver is still not working. Broadcom has a driver from their website for Linux 32 bit systems. Should I attempt to install it? I read a post where the driver is built into the system kernel. If so I would need to blacklist the one of the drivers. Correct?

I've just done a fresh install of Lubuntu 10.10 on an older Sony Vaio laptop. Having learned the hard way about editing xorg files, I wanted to create a backup of the xorg.conf file so that I dont have to do another install when I screw everything up. In a terminal, I typed
accidentally I do something wrong with my server and the httpd folder missing and I need it to setup my mail server and anyone can help me what can I do without reinstalling my Cent OS? Here is the error msg :

Crashed my windows XP OS and replaced it with UBUNTU 9.10 can get online with hard LAN but wireless is disabled tried to install OEM driver for the broadcom card but only ended up blacklisting what appears now to be the default drivers I need b43. card is Broadcom BCM 4318, ICH6 chipset. on a Gateway MX6128.ROCK ON!
Installed Ubuntu 10.4 Beta on my Asus Eee 901 (the old Windows XP got tired...) Nice install, BTW, but Networking does not work. I have a very run-of-the-mill Linksys wireless router, which uses WPA2 passord authentication on the wireless side. Ubuntu clearly does try to connect, but then asks me for the password again, repeated a few times and then gives up. The SSID is OK (same I use on my Windows machines) and the same for the password, so it must be something Ubuntu does to the password. Bug or operator error?
After playing around with 9.04 for several months and getting used to linux (I have tried several distros but like ubuntu the best), I decided to reinstall to have a clean system. My wireless has been working great using ndiswrapper. Now after re-install and updating the system, here is my problem. The USB Network Adapter is seen and the wireless network is seen but it never connects. It just keeps asking for the passphrase (I have WPA2 Personal turned on). I have tried turning off the wireless security but that doesn't seem to have any effect.
I have done the things I did before to get the wireless connecting - disabling the native driver (which doesn't work at all) as well as the broadcom drivers which seem to interfere with ndiswrapper. I also tried downloading and compiling the ralink native driver (v 188.8.131.52) but that didn't work.Here is the setup:PC with dual core processors running at 2 Ghz3 GB ramUbuntu 9.04Belkin N150 Enhanced Wireless RouterBelkin N150 Enhaced Wireless USB Network Adapter (uses the rt2870 driver.)
I install the Ubuntu 10.04 OS on to a new Mac computer. Everything seems to work fine except for my networking icon/system. When i open the network connection i can not connect to a wireless network. it doesn't show any wireless networks in the area. it will only work if i connect with a LAN cable to go online.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 x86 on my netbook. When I try to connect to the office WLAN I get the usual "%SSID% Connection established" but my network status icon in the panel doesn't change.
I then go online and sometime it works sometimes it doesn't. When it does work it is extremely slow. My first though was maybe it is because the router is set in mixed mode, this wasn't the case as my router at home is mixed mode and works fine. Then I thought maybe its the DNS so I set the DNS address to 184.108.40.206 (googles open DNS server) - same thing, still slow.
Next I thougt it maybe an incombatability between ubuntu and the router, a collegue of mine uses ubuntu also (10.04 x86) and he has exactly the same problem.
When I connect to the router using a cat 5 I get a similar problem, the network status icon changes to connected but the connection is still extremely slow. I know it's not the line because pleanty of other PC's use the same connection and it's fine. Again when we try it on my collegues ubuntu machine its the same thing.
So at the moment I know its not my machine or the DNS or the WLAN
I'm a first time user of ubuntu and I am having huge issues getting my wireless to work. I've tried using the troubleshooting guide, but it says that it's already installed and to go to windows wireless drivers to install the .inf file. Problem is.. I can't find the file anywhere. When I type lspci into the terminal this is what it says: 03:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01)
I just took the plunge again and purged Windows 7 from my desktop computer and replaced it with the Lucid Lynx
Now my problem is I was using "Internet Connection Sharing" in Windows 7 to let my laptop and netbook connect to the Internet via wireless. Now I don't have the option of sharing my Internet connection anymore as Ubuntu would require me to have two network interface devices to do this, thus I am trying to make my laptop and netbook connect to the DSL modem via the wireless AP (which is possible in Windows as my wife is doing it right now on her laptop).
How do I go about getting my laptop (running Lucid Lynx) and netbook (Lucid Lynx Netbook Remix) to connect to the DSL modem via a wireless connection?
I installed Ubuntu on my laptop at a friend's house. After installing, I connected perfectly to their wireless network and lived quite happily for a few days. However, when I arrived home and tried to connect to my own network, my computer insisted that it couldn't connect. Although I'm sure I'm entering the right pass key, it keeps asking for the passkey ad nauseum.
Ive just installed ubuntu on an old laptop to bring it back to life after the windows bootup crawl was just annoying me.Installation has gone fine, but the problem Im having is I dont see how to connect the wireless. By router is broadcasting, and on any other machine I can just see the network and connect/enter PW etc. This ubuntu machine doesnt see any wireless networks in the network list. Is there something Im not getting?Ive done nm-tool and it sats my wlan is just disconnected. Am I going to have to enter my network manually?
I installed Ubuntu 9.10 onto my laptop, and having wireless issue. I was able to connect to wireless at home, but cannot at school. Then recently, I reformatted by desktop at home, and now I can no longer connect to my own connection. But yet, I'm able to connect to my neighbor. I considered installing ndisgtk package, but then i thought if I'm able to connect to some connections that means I'm not missing windows driver (maybe I'm wrong ).
I was able to connect fine before yesterday but installed some updates and now my wireless will no longer connect. Wired network is fine, that is how I am online now. I can see my network in network-manager but it will not let me connect.Let me know what info you may need, I have a RTL8192SE wireless card.
I'm very new to linux, I've just installed ubuntu 9.10 but it won't connect to the wireless for the internet. It sees my network and I can try to connect to it, it even asks me for the password (yes i'm using the right one) but soon as i tell it to connect it just says its connecting and then asks me for the password again and it keeps doing this?
