Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To WPA / WPA2 Network Wirelessly ( BCM 4315 )?

Nov 10, 2010

I've recently installed Lucid Lynx 10.04 on my Dell Studio which uses an internal BCM4315 wi-fi card to connect to the internet. I was hoping it would work upon the install, but deep down I knew I'd have to tweak it a little bit to get it up and running the way I wanted. The card was instantly recognized but, at first, wasn't detecting wireless networks. This was quickly and painlessly fixed using System > Administration > Hardware Drivers, which I used to install Broadcom B43 wireless driver (b43-fwcutter). I rebooted and could not detect the local wireless networks.

I entered my password to my home network (correctly, I quadruple checked) but, unfortunately, it continuously tries to connect to the network with no successful. Occasionally I'm prompted to re-entered the password and the process repeats. The network I'm trying to connect to is a WPA/WPA2 network which I've heard to be troublesome. I haven't yet tried connecting to a WEP network but I'm fairly certain it will work and I will get back to this post when I test it in a few hours.

I'm curious if this question has been answered or if the problem has been solved and I just simply don't have the google skills to find it.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To A Secure Wireless Network (WPA Or WPA2)

Sep 1, 2011

In setting up wireless connections I have ran into an array of problems. First, when I installed the new OS on my laptop I had to get the correct drivers and firmware for it to display and connect to any connections, had no problem here connecting to a secure wireless network (WPA or WPA2). I then installed Ubuntu on my desktop and had to find the correct driver for the Netgear WNDA3100v2 USB adapter, got it all installed with the Windows Wireless Drivers tool or w/e it is. This made all the available connections come up. I tried connecting with the WPA password I was given for the network and will not connect.

I had the guy managing the network change the one I connect to, to a WEP Passphrase Shared Key thinking this would solve my issue, still nothing. And also in doing so, now my laptop will not connect to the wireless network using the Passphrase. I do not want to go back to Windows, and I will be getting rid of my Lan connection soon so i need a solution to fix this wireless connection problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting Wirelessly Via Command Line?

May 11, 2010

For reasons that are not terribly interesting I decided it would be a great idea to remove and re-install the xserver-xorg package. Which proved to be a much larger mistake than I imagined it would be. I purged the package, and then restarted.Naturally I need to have an internet connection to use apt-get to reinstall xserver-xorg, which is where my idea falls apart.I followed the directions in the How To: Manual Network Configuration. However, after I enter the command "sudo dhclient wlan1" I get the line "wmaster0: unknown hardware address type 801" twice prior to the output that the above link shows. Then I just get DHCPDISCOVER messages until I get a "No DHCPOFFERS received. No working leases in persistent database - sleeping."

I'm connecting with WEP to a router that I know works (because I'm using it to type this on my laptop right now) and I know that the wireless adapter(RTL8187) is installed properly because it automatically connected to my network when I had xserver-xorg still installed.I'm running ubuntu 9.04.I've searched for a few hours and I'm no closer to resolving the issue.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting Wirelessly With TP-Link TL-WN727N USB Adapter?

Dec 15, 2010

I'm having some issues getting connected with a TP-Link TL-Wn727N wireless USB adapter. I have no way to connect hard wired with the computer, but I have another working notebook to possibly download files. However, the second notebook is a Mac, so most of the posts I've found are not filling in all of the answers. Also forgot to note, I am using Ubuntu 10.10. I followed along with this and managed to get the card to find the wireless connection. However, the connection would never connect. After entering the security password the wireless icon would do it's thing and then pop up asking to ok the password again. I double, triple checked the password and it is correct. I found elsewhere that I should probably install wicd. This is where I've run into problems with finding the way to get files that I can download on the Mac and then installed on the Ubuntu computer. I managed to find this forum thread and downloaded this file I transferred the file from the Mac to the Ubuntu with a flash drive and tried to install. First the install said that Network Manager needed to be removed, so I removed it. Next it says "Dependency is not satisfiable: python-urwid." I'm not sure how to go about getting this dependency as it is not showing up in the package manager.

Networking :: Connecting Wirelessly With Newly Installed Fedora 14?

Jan 6, 2011

I finally got the driver to be installed and to be associated with the network adapter. Now the issue is the wireless network adapter won't connect to my wireless network. I am new to Linux, and am trying to get my Fedora 14 to work online, without needing to constantly be wired in (what's the point of having a laptop if you have to be stationary). Anyways my network has WPA2 personal security with a TKIP + AES encryption (I switched it from solely AES because I thought that might have been the issue).I've heard a lot of good things about Linux, but so far its been frustrating trying to get this wireless connection working. I am currently taking a course on Linux, and I am using the opportunity to learn about and maybe switch over to a Linux OS which I have heard so much good stuff about in my previous courses.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wirelessly Connecting Desktop With A Linksys Wireless Range Expander?

Sep 30, 2010

After spending several months coming up with ideas (and ultimately failing), I have found the easiest and simplest way to connect your Ubuntu desktop (or laptop w/o a wireless adapter/card) to the Internet using only a Linksys Wireless Range Expander and an Ethernet cord.

YOU WILL NEED:
Linksys Wireless Range Expander (WRE54G)
Ethernet cable

Linksys wireless router (that is providing your home/office with wireless Internet) The WRE54G can be purchased online through various websites, including eBay. They run anywhere between $10 and $40, but it's going to be cheaper than a USB Wireless Adapter (and no software needs to be installed, making it universal for most Linux distros).

Ubuntu Networking :: Authentication - Wirelessly Connect To My Network - Cannot Get Address

May 27, 2011

I have been trying to wirelessly connect to my network for weeks now. My netgear dongle is fully working. I have installed the driver using ndiswrapper. I can see my network and signal is excellent; everything is working perfectly. When I try to connect it thinks about it but never connects. The password is fine; it works great with other computers. decided to have a go with wicd, so got rid of the Gnome network manager and installed wicd. Adaptor and wicd appear to be working brilliantly EXCEPT I cannot connect. wicd tells me its a bad password. Password fine because it works brilliantly with every other device I connect to my network. If I remove security from network, it tells me it cannot get address, even though it sailed passed that with no problem when there was security. I have searched the internet for a solution to this problem time and time again. Lots of people seem to be having this problem, but no one knows the solution. Is there a solution? It happens with both Ubuntu 10.04 LTS v1 v2 and Ubuntu 11.04. What the heck is going on. This happens with WPA WEP and anything else I try to use

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect To The WPA2 LEAP Network

Apr 17, 2010

My college runs a WPA2 LEAP secured wireless network, and I am having problems connecting to it under Ubuntu. I can connect to it just fine under Windows, just not under Ubuntu. Under Ubuntu I can connect to other networks such as my home WEP secured wireless network, so it shouldn't be a hardware or driver issue.

When I do connect to the WPA2 LEAP network it recognizes the network and tries to connect, it pops up the login box for me to enter my username and password, but after I click connect it pops back up again about 10 seconds later. It pops up like this about 3 times total, then after the third time it stops trying to connect and the Wireless Network Disconnected message is shown.

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Connect To WPA2 Network

May 9, 2009

O currently have 2 USB WiFi adaptors: a Linksys WUSB54G v4 and a D-Link DWA-110. Both these USB adaptors worked extremely well in Windows: they could connect to any network: unsecured, WEP and WPA1/2I have tested these adaptors in DreamLinux, OpenSUSE and Mandriva: in these 3 distributions, i could use both adaptors to connect to my home's WPA2 network.Both adaptors also work well in Fedora 10.In Fedora 11 Alpha though, its a different thing: only the D-Link is able to connect to the home WPA2 network. My Linksys WUSB54Gv4 can 'see' the network, but when i enter in the WPA2 key, it takes forever to try to negotiate a connection before timing out and disconnecting.

General :: Connecting To The Internet Both Wirelessly And With An Ethernet Cord Into The Router

Oct 11, 2010

I just installed Fedora Core on my Dell Inpsiron B130 laptop and I am having trouble connecting to the internet both wirelessly and with an ethernet cord into the router. When trying to configure my network, I dont recognize any of the ethernet adapters in the drop down list. I have been told that my wireless card is Linux compatible (dell y8029 dell wireless 1370 802.11/a/b/g mini pci). My ethernet card is a B130 Broadcom Ethernet Driver which isnt in the drop down menu either.

I read that I need to download an ndiswrapper but I dont know where to find this download AND even if I could download it to a zipdribe, I have trouble opening a USB flash in Linux becuase its not a "valid block device". This is after the command "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbflash"

Ubuntu Networking :: Bad Password - Error Message When Trying To Connect To WPA/WPA2 Wireless Network

I keep getting a "bad password" error message when trying to connect via wpa_supplicant to a wireless network (Apple Time Capsule WPA/WPA2 mixed).

Here's my wpa_supplicant.conf:

And the relevant line in the /etc/network/interfaces file:

The Time Capsule log contains the following error message--

So perhaps the password is somehow getting lost in translation from Ubuntu to the Time Capsule?

Networking :: WPA2 Network - Ndiswrapper Wireless - Ubuntu 9.04 - Reset Router To Get Online

Apr 1, 2010

I've been having a network problem that I've been able to temporarily solve by rebooting the router, but even that can be shaky at times, and it can sometimes disturb others' internet activites, so I'd really like to tackle this while I can. I had an old thread about this, but it's ancient history by now, and plus which, I've got a bit more Linux experience and patience than I did before.

The basic problem is that NetworkManager will associate and connect to my home wireless network, but a) it won't let me ping the router or anywhere else ("Destination Host Unreachable"), and b) the connection lasts for maybe a couple minutes at most. If I reset the router, however, 9 times out of 10 it will associate and connect successfully and I can get online, but I have to run a constant ping to the router with a 10-second interval, otherwise it drops the connection, unless I'm doing a lot of other heavy network activity.

ping 192.168.1.1 (the router):

Code:

I've tried wpa_supplicant, but this is what I get (it's apparently unsuccessful...? ESSID/MAC addresses censored where necessary):

Code:

The last prompt line is included because I cancelled it myself; it didn't abort on its own. If left unmonitored, it basically keeps doing this over and over, with no visible network activity at all.

With NetworkManager, I can keep selecting the network's ESSID over and over, and it seems to reconnect, but I still can't ping out anywhere. I'm using a Netgear WN111v1 wireless adapter with ndiswrapper and the Windows drivers. I have no idea what the chipset is, and I doubt that Linux drivers exist for it, even if I knew what it was. The router is using WPA2 security (hence my trying wpa_supplicant)

lsusb:

Code:

ifconfig wlan0 (while connected; IP/MAC addresses censored where needed):

Code:

ifconfig wlan0 (while not connected; IP/MAC addresses censored where needed):

Code:

Code:

I only include this for format checking purposes. The commented out "psk" is the actual text passphrase, while the uncommented one is (presumably) a hex representation of the same key. Is this correct? I've never done this with wpa_supplicant before, I've only used NetworkManager (which is a pain in the @$$ because it requires X to run, and so it disconnects any time I log out/back in ).

Is there any hope of getting my wireless connection permanently working, so that I don't have to reset the router every time I need to reboot or log out/back in?

Debian Configuration :: Connecting To Hidden SSID Over WPA2

Jan 24, 2016

I've been searching and trying to correct this problem for nigh on 12 hours. I would like to note that I know that hidden SSID are not necessarily much more secure. I have no permission to change the settings where I am. I'm running Debian Jessie. I have no way to get the server a connection other than the WiFi dongle I'm using. I have installed the correct WPA_Supplicant and Wireless Tools for my architecture/distro/version. I also have solved a sub-problem I had earlier; that the drivers for my WiFi dongle come with the kernel, but the firmware does not. That was remedied.

I can see my SSID in my iwlist scan. (iwlist scan | grep ESSID). My current /etc/network/interfaces looks like this:

Code: Select allauto wlan0
     iface wlan0 inet dhcp
     wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
My current /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf looks like this:
Code: Select allnetwork={
     ssid="hundley_1"
     psk=HashedPSK
     scan_ssid=1
}

The original .conf was created by using wpa_passphrase "hundley_1" PASSWORD >

/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf I know for a fact that the security key is correct. I edited the .conf produced to what it is now.

Usign ifup wlan0 and ifdown wlan0 to start and restart the connection yields an error. The gist of the error is:

NO DHCPOFFERS recieved

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom BCM4312 - 4315 - Activated But No Signal

Jun 16, 2010

I recently bought a Lenovo laptop which comes with a wireless card called Broadcom BCM4312 but in dmesg it says "bcm4315 hybrid wireless controller".

Jockey says the driver is installed, activated and in use. However I don't get any signal (I even moved the laptop to the same room the wireless router is).

I run iwevent and nothing appeared.

I run Kubuntu 10.04, fresh install from a USB stick, latest updates. I replaced knetworkmanager with the network-manager-gnome. network-manager-gnome works fine and I can connect to wired connection with no problem.

Network-manager-gnome says that the wireless is disconnected. What can be done to make the wireless work?

Fedora Networking :: Connecting Home Network To Work Network

Sep 20, 2010

Currently my office use a Cisco Firewall which will only allow the ANYCONNECT utility to do the vpn connection. I found a Linux utility (OpenConnect) which will do the same thing, but allow me more flexibility with my networking needs.What I ultimately would like to have is to have a switch that I can connect any network device into it and be connected to the office. IE (my IP Work Phone and Computer) Currently I have is a computer with fedora 13 and two network cards eth0 (home network - connected to a router) and eth1 which I would like to connect a switch to. OpenConnect communicates fine and I can see the work network from the Fedora machine. It creates a vpn0 tun/tap device and I don't know how to pass communication to/from the eth1 device.

Do I try to iptables the ports for the phone and services I need on the computer? Or do I build bridge; and If I do what am I bridging. I have tried making a bridge from eth1 to vpn0 which reply's with unsupported device or something like that.Unfortunately my network skills are bit limited and my office says "it can't be done". Their solution is for me to buy a ASA5505 (or something device) and have a static IP. I would have to make it work as my router and even then it will only DHCP 10 ip addresses; which will cause a shortage of IP addresses in the house.

Ubuntu Networking :: Monitor Mode On Broadcom 14e4:4315 And 14e4:432* Wireless Cards?

Apr 3, 2010

First of all, this tutorial will use NDISWRAPPER, not b43, not wl (Broadcom STA). So, hooray for new method (actually, the only method ). Now, I don't want anyone to get scared because of bad experiences with Ndiswrapper or whatever, it's actually quite easy. I did not come up with any of this info. I'm just putting this guide together from Kacper Szczesniak's info (who came up with this method), WifiDocsDriverbcm43xxFeisty_No-Fluff from the Ubuntu Wiki, and my experience. The Broadcom STA (wl) driver has references to monitor mode in it's code, but does not have that functionality in reality. The Broadcom Windows driver on the other hand does have this capability. So, for monitor mode to work, you will need a patched version of ndiswrapper.

1) Install the Linux kernel headers:

Code:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

2) Install the tools required to compile Ndiswrapper:

Code:

sudo apt-get install checkinstall dh-make fakeroot gcc build-essential

3) Unload current Ndiswrapper module, if running:

Code:

sudo rmmod ndiswrapper

Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To The Campus Network?

Mar 2, 2010

I recently went back to Linux on my netbook because Windows 7 was too laggy (1gb of RAM, go figure). I've never been able to connect to the protected wireless network on my campus without using Windows, though, so I was hoping someone could help me finally get that figured out.

The school has a how-to for connecting to the network using various operating systems, including Linux, here (scroll down to the bottom to choose OS). After following the guide through the CA certificate it mentions, the network manager tries to connect for a while then just sort of times out and asks me to enter the information again. Using Wicd, I noticed that this timeout appears to happen when trying to obtain an IP (after authentication).

My system: Acer Aspire One AOA150 with an Intel 4965AGN wireless card (installed by me a few months back, have had no problems with the card itself not working). I've installed Kubuntu 9.10 Netbook edition and done all available updates. My campus offers an unprotected "Visitor" network that I can connect to without issue, but they limit what you can access using the unprotected network so I need to be able to connect to the WPA2 one.

I've tried getting help from on-campus IT but keep getting told that none of them know how to use Linux, which makes me wonder who exactly wrote the how-to on their website... The guides on the website are for older versions of Ubuntu, but I figured they would remain applicable on a later-version Kubuntu install.
