Ubuntu Networking :: Install Wicd Without An Internet Connection?
Oct 21, 2010
I installed Enlightenment into my machine and, in the course of the installation, Network Manager was removed. I now have no internet connection. I've searched and tried a couple of possible solutions here but I cannot get them to work. When I try to use a downloaded deb file Gdebi cannot install it. It seems that if I re-install Network Manager I'll lose a lot of my Enlightenment installation. What I'd like to do is install Wicd. I dual boot with Win 7 so all is not lost. I understand that there's a way to istall Wicd from the command line without an internet connection but I cannot figure out how to do it.
I have a Ubuntu 10.04 laptop that gets its Internet connection via WIFI using WICD as network manager, and Windows XP desktop with no Internet connection. What I want to do is share my Internet connection from my laptop with my desktop via a Ethernet cable. But i have no idea what to do. How do i go about doing this?
Well it seems like every 5 min the update manager is barging in telling me to update so I did last night and then this morning I turn on my computer and a window pops up that says "wicd needs your password" or something to that effect so I put it in. Then I notice wicd is not running. So I click on it in the menu and it pops up in awn for a second then disappears. As I have said before I am fairly new to linux so Im having trouble figuring this out. I don't know any commands i should run or where to start even. My computer is not much use to me without the internet so I would really like to get this fixed.
I have a Dell Mini with Unbuntu Hardy 8.04 with a Broadcom STA wireless card BCM4312 802.11b/g. In April the Network Manager stopped working.After trying various fixes, based on advice and instructions posted for others who had the same issue, today I decided to completely uninstall the Network Manager and install wicd- which seems like a working alternative. I uninstalled the Network Manager and used the installation instructions for wicd (URL...). While connected to the internet with a wired connection, in my Synaptic Package Manager I entered the new address deb URL... hardy extras. Then I opened a terminal and entered.It looks like an argument is needed, but I have no idea how to add that to the command. I've found the key file (I think) here URL...but I don't know what to do next.
I'm at a family member's house for the holiday and was trying to use their wifi. Its a WEP connection (I tried to tell them to change but they won't listen). In the wicd connection manager, I see their network, set the encryption to WEP (passphrase), enter the password, and hit connect. It says bringing up the card, checking authentication, then gets to Acquiring IP address, sits there for a minute, then times out saying unable to connect.
I know I used the right password because it passed the Authenticating part (tested with a wrong password that hangs at this point). I know that my wifi card works because I used a store's unsecured wifi connection through wicd. I know the wifi network works because my brother's windows netbook can get on just fine. I'm running through the same router right now with a wire instead. Why I can't connect wirelessly?
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 on a PackardBell notebook and have just got an Orange Livebox 2 for broadband connection(after years of dial-up as no adsl in my area).I am trying to connect via WiFi to the Livebox to configure, but neither NetworkManager nor Wicd will connect. NM sees the Livebox but simply fails to connect after trying; Wicd says "Bad password".The WPA2 password I have entered is definitely correct, and I have connected without any problem from an AcerOne under Linpus.I have also tried to connect using Wicd and an ethernet cable, and this doesn't connect either, returning "Connection Failed: Unable to Get IP Address"
I am running Ubuntu 10.10, and I would like to use my computer to share the internet connection from an ethernet port. For example, I would like to set up my computer as a wireless access point so I can create a network that other computers can connect to for internet.
I thought to uninstall Gnome Network manager since it was always asking for to connect with wireless internet but it was working fine with wired internet.I uninstalled it and installed wicd. and then for some unknown reasons the internet disappeared.Kindly let me know How can i get back network manager without having internet and make internet work on my computer.I did searched a lot on Ubuntu forums using somone's else computer but no success.So if you let me know how to approach the problem in right manner it shal be great .
I dont know how to install backports! I have tried everything to get my usb adapter to connect but it still dosent recognize my home network! How do I install backports and headers? (ubuntu 10.04 amd 64) [URL]

Its a case of ".... wireless network connection active but still not internet connection .."I am using WEP - 128 key ... Works when I connect directly using ethernet cable ... but not wireless (pci and wireless router)
These problems just started the last couple of days but I have been using Lucid 10.04 for a month now. My wireless Signal varies in strength wildly. I sitting at home, not 20 feet from my router. I never had these problems before Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04. I am running both Network Manager and Wicd.
Errors: 1. Wicd states "Wrong Password" which is not true. 2. Dropping off-line for no reason, sometimes 3 or 4 times a minute and sometimes it works fine for hours. 3. Firefox 3.6.3 Automatically Checking "Work Offline"!?
I have the Proper Wireless Drivers. I have not changed my wireless settings, channel or WPA for 8 months now so I know thats not it.
I tried to install Xubuntu 10.10 Maverick as dual boot on my laptop. However when xubuntu is on, I can't find a way to connect to internet. When I try the 2 arrows on the up-right corner the option for wireless is deemed. I tried offline/online, that did not work either. when I click the firefox It says you are not connected.
I seem to have is trying to get the internet to work. I can go to ..... ect but when I try to run playonlinux it says you do not seem to be connected to the internet, please post if you have anything useful, as I said I am very new to linux so be as detailed as possible.
I have two linux laptops. Currently, I'm using both of them at work, side-by-side. Now the problem is, I'm connected to a wireless router, but the wireless only works on one of the laptops. So I'm stuck with one laptop that has no access to the internet. Both machines do, however, have working ethernet nic cards. So, I was wondering if I could use the laptop with the wireless connection to share the internet connection with my other linux machine and access the internet on both of them. Or as an alternative, just use the internet on the machine without wireless and be able to switch back and forth, that would increase my productivity like 30 fold.
I have the "Work Offline" problem: when I boot up, the icon on the toolbar tells me I have "No network connection". This is not quite true, since I can access the first page of any website - only subsequent pages are inaccessible. I get a message saying that Firefox is offline. However, when I uncheck "Work Offline" in the File menu, it makes no difference to this behavior.
The problem is on my Ubuntu Dell desktop, which is connected to the internet with cable broadband via a D-Link router (wired connection). It has worked fine up till now. I use Ubuntu 10.04 and Firefox 3.6.11. I am writing this on my Ubuntu Dell laptop which is wired to the same router, so I assume the problem is not the router. I have tried various strategies suggested in threads on these forums, including editing about:config, changing "allow" to "deny" in some lines of /etc/dbus-1/system.d/NetworkManager.conf and changing from Automatic (DHCP) to Automatic (DHCP) Addresses only, but no luck so far. The contents of ifconfig are:
This is a little problem I've been having. My internet connection right now is just my rooted android phone broadcasting a wifi signal. It works like a regular wifi connection. When I connect to it, it works fine. But if it goes for more than a minute without having any data transferred, it drops the connection til I reconnect. I can have it downloading all night and it wont go out once. But soon as I let it alone without any data xfer, its down.
My quick fix is to just keep it pinging [URL] and that mostly keeps the connection going (although it still drops occasionally). Anyone know a more permanent solution?

I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 desktop on my desktop in dual boot with Windows 7.
Heres my problem, I am unable to connect to the Internet even though my wired Ethernet connection says it is connected normally. The wierd thing about this is that I also have a wireless card in my desktop and when I connect through that I am able to connect to the Internet. I am connecting to a router that is functioning as a repeater to my main router/cable modem. I have tried to solve this myself but am having no luck. Ironically, earlier today suddenly my ethernet connection worked for a few minutes without me modifying anything.
The output of some terminal commands are below.
However a pint to that ip address (my router) is successful.
Hosts.allow and hosts.deny are both fine (not blank but no entries)
I had a wireless connection to open suse from last year. I then had a problem with my Netgear 824 router. I have reconnected to windows vista. Now I have to get opensuse working on wireless. I do not have much experience in opensuse I have read the forums and the sticky and also from wicd forums. I have checked the yast settings and it is for AR242x ath0 and Wired L2 100 eth0.

Can I install Ubuntu Studio 9.10, Ubuntu 9.10 or Kubuntu 9.10 Live CD/DVD on a computer without internet connection? becouse I build computer for ubuntu professional photography only Data like external HD
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 alongwith Linux Mint & Windows XP. A friend of mine who has the same computer configuration & same hardware is planning to install Ubuntu 10.04. But he'll not be having internet connection at that place. So I was thinking of helping him by giving a CD which will be having all the required software on that which I have installed in my ubuntu 10.04. So that when he installs Ubuntu he just need to put the CD. So is there someway thru which we can put our installed programs on the CD so that we can use them again when we don't have internet connection? Like APT on CD...
