am having some problems with getting a pc to use the above software. background is my wife wanted access to mail in her "office". purchased a Tenda wireless router and installed ok (with TPlink pci wireless card on her pc). am using latest version of ubuntu (10.10 x64) on her pc and went to use firefox - timed out, same with evolution and thunderbird. synaptic works fine, opera and google chrome work fine. i'm guessing some sort of tweaking of the router is required but not sure where to start.
I have a pc which has 2 network cards, 1 wifi and 1 ethernet card.
I'm using wifi card to connect to wifi network (internet) and i'm planing to share this wifi/internet connection via ethernet to wireless router (siemens sx763) so i can have internet on my other devices, e.g. mobile phone, laptop.
the only error message I can find comes from "dmesg|tail"all it shows is "no IPv6 router"any body know what is going on here or where where to look for more clues the next time I get around public wifi Oh the windoze washers and apple polishers don't seem to have any problems at all
I think I have unique problem. I have a d-link DWL G510 rev c.(Austrailian) WiFi card in my pc which is detected as
Network controller : RaLink RT2561/RT61 rev B 802.11g [1814:0302] in lspci -nn.

Now sometimes it detects my wifi router and shows its ssid in nm-applet. but when I try to connect, it tries for 3 or 4 minutes and then fails. for most of time it even does not finds my router.
I have a Dell Studio XPS15 laptop running 11.04 which works flawlessly with my router (it's a broadcom card btw). Now I'm setting up a new laptop for my Father-in-law which is a Dell Inspiron 15 which has intel Centrino 1000 wireless. I've installed and setup 11.04 on it. Everything runs great except..
Now it can see all the access points around so I assume the wireless card is properly detected and working. But when I try to log into my router and give it my password, it just keeps trying to connect and can't. I've double checked the settings with my own laptop and everything seems the same. why it won't log in? I'm leaving it as a dual boot with Win7 and I know that Win7 will log into the same router with the same password.
I've got an Ubuntu box set up as a router and wifi hotspot. I can access the internet and any website using this box. I can connect a laptop to my wifi access point, and connect to both the router box and the internet. I'm writing this message from it. If I access either hsbc Hong Kong internet banking or speedtest.net from my laptop I can't connect. Every other site I've tried is fine. What could be causing this? I don't know where to start. I've set up the firewall rules and routing tables, so I vaguely know what I'm doing... but clearly not enough to debug this issue.
trying to run 10.04 netbook live from a memory stick with a view to installing it on my laptop. However although I can see my wireless router and connect to it I cannot access the internet. I have tried this on my laptop and desktop with the same result. I was however able to download Seamonkey browser using the software manager....this also cannot access the internet. Both of my PC's have no problem when using XP or Linux Mint.
I have also discovered that if I piggyback, using Ubuntu 10.04, on a neighbours open wifi link I can gain access to the internet. My wifi is using WEP protection but as I said I can set the link up to the router, entering the appropriate key code, and have a good signal strength, I just cannot access a google search page.
Upgraded broadband service yesterday and now using a combined router and modem (Virgin Media Hub). But I now have no wired or wifi internet connectivity on either of my ubuntu 10.10 systems. I tested it on my work laptop which uses Window and it works fine for wired and wifi.
With 10.10 I no longer have a network icon upper right panel to check, so not sure how to set up wireless. Both machines have static IP addresses and are able to ping each other but there is no internet connection on either.
I am using an Asus R2 G32 Wifi Router. The CD's and the manual that comes along with the Router does not support Linux . Now the wifi connection was installed in Windows 6 months back with a password and but it got reset to default somehow. Now i want to set password again. Whenever i try to log in 192.168.1.1 in my browser, and Change the password and select Apply . Nothing happens to the page, as if it is static. No Submit Buttons work in this. Um a bit in mess ryt now as my wifi is vulnerable to any1 ryt now.
I installed PCLOS 2010.07 into my laptop and dual booting with windows vista. Now I got a weird problem that is when I connected linux to my wifi router, it cannot obtain IP! (it still work correctly in windows, problem just with linux) I had to manually set ip and that worked. Now i wonder what is happening, because I didn't see this problem with PCLOS 2009 borrowed from my friend few months ago.
I updated a firmware of my wifi router (small black box with antenna). The router is managed via web browser at address 192.168.1.100. I opened Mozilla Firefox connected to the router, but a 'home.asp' application - an interface one can to set up a configuration - running on the router didn't work properly. When I tried to change some settings, and eg. clicked a confirmation button nothing happened. I solved the problem staring Windows and making a connection using IE - this time that home.asp application did OK. The question is what may caused problems? A bug in this app or in general *.asp applications don't communicate well with browsers other than IE or simply they don't 'like' Linux?
I was introduced to Ubuntu about a year ago and recently decided to come back to using the OS. I now dual boot it with Windows XP Home. My former setup was with Wubi but now I have it installed on an actual partition. (The Wubi install, for whatever reason, had little internet problems.) I use wireless internet, and though my network card was recognized out of the box and can connect to my network, the Internet is very slow. It takes almost a minute to look up Google. Also, Firefox will often report that it cannot find the server for whatever website I try to look up, after trying to connect to it/look it up. I also cannot access the web configuration page for my router. (192.168.1.1). The network app reports that I often have a signal strength of 40% or lower. The following is my hardware/internet:
Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty TrendNet TEW-424UB adapter (54mbps) Westell VersaLink 327W router ISP: CenturyTel/CenturyLink High speed internet (512kbps)
I am the only Linux computer on my network. (There is no encryption on my network. I know there should be. but my parents are not very computer literate and they are the ones who have access to the network. It is easier just to go without.)
I have tried disabling ipv6, setting custom DNS server names under ipv4, and setting the wlan rate (or something similar) to 1492. Nothing works. This does not seem to be a network problem because my internet works fine in Windows, and I can access the configuration page for my router to change channels, PPP, etc..
I recently bought a new wireless router (Cisco E1000) to use in my house. The E1000 supports mixed-mode 802.11n/g/b, which is what I have enabled. It is the first 802.11n router I've had. My netbook (an HP/Compaq Mini 110) only supports b/g. When connected to this new router, I can only see my status as root. NetworkManager shows a little red exclamation point, and 'iwconfig' shows nothing. It's missing in the 'iwlist scanning' list. Even still, I'm connected and can do everything just fine. However, everything shows up fine when I run 'sudo iwconfig' or 'sudo iwlist scanning'. These have always worked as a standard user before.
After forgetting my wifi router password, I had to reset and reconfigure the router. I enabled WEP, and after I typed the password, the computer now recognises it automatically. But I can't connect to the internet no matter how long I wait. (The wired internet connection works fine.) How can I get the wifi to connect to the internet?
I am trying to get an arp packet from my wireless wifi router (access point), to which I am not connected. I simply tried ping 192.168.0.1, but the answer was connect: network is unreachable. What can I do about that?
1) it cannot see any networks around 2) i cannot setup it in master mode to use my PC as a router
As far as i can see, the device is recognized and the correct driver (rt73usb) is loaded. I was able to connect to a laptop somehow (the laptop could see other networks and the adapter's PC-to-PC network). I'd like to make it work as a router, i.e. share my internet connection (eth0) via wlan0. Here is what i have:

I have a telephone connection of 1 mega internet modem huawei mt 880 SmartAX my desktop computer is connected via an ADSL PPPoE.I use Ubuntu 10.04 in Spanish and want to know how to connect a WiFi router TP-LINK TL- wr942nd to provide wireless Internet to other 2 PC, a desktop with a plaquet wireles G CNet CWP-854 and 500 series notebook olivetti olibook. The issue is that when I connect the router I can not even go online and do not know how to operate the network, I can not even connect the desktop to my internet provider
I just got a new desktop (the client) and hooked my "old" computer (the server) up to it with a crossover cable & NFS while I set up the new system.Unfortunately, while nfsd is running firefox cannot access the internet through ath0 -- the wifi card (NFS/rpc is on the ethernet card). Do I have to set up a proxy server (eg. squid) or is there a simpler solution?I don't need direct access to the net on the client. I just want to be able to use the wifi's IP in the server while it has a NFS client on eth0, so that firefox can work online.
I can't seem to get my wifi connection going on my laptop. The wired connection works fine, and the wifi seems to detect networks, but upon trying to connect I get "Bad password". Network at this location uses WPA2.
Upon lspci | grp "Network" I get
Code: 02:00.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. RT3090 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe and on lshw -C network I get; Code: *-network description: Wireless interface
i got this machine i wanted to use as gateway/router and wifi shareing i tried numerous guides i can find on this forum and by google and none of them works i can get so far as getting a ip on another machine with lan cable but no internet access
eth0 LAN eth1 WAN wlan0 Wireless br0 wlan0 + eth0 Code: # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
on that bridge i got dhcp running and it works on hte cable side, can't find the network wireless ??? anyway i got no internet on cable LAN side BUT i got internet on the server "as i'm writeing this from it now"
Server - Ubuntu 10.04.1 lts Client - Kubuntu 10.10
When I try to open any nfs-mounted file using OpenOffice, I get a pop-up window titled "Document in Use". The text of the message is:
"Document file 'abcde.odt' is locked for editing by:
Open document read-only or open a copy of the document for editing." I then have three options - <Open Read-Only>, <Open Copy>, & <Cancel> If I cp any of these files from the mounted directory to my home dir (not mounted), I can open them without problem.Also, my firefox & thunderbird date are in this mounted directory as well (sym links to ~dan/.mozilla & ~dan/.thunderbird). Both of these apps hang when trying to open, leaving two processes behind that need to be manually killed. Again, cp'ing the data out of the nfs-mounted dir onto a local dir resolves the issue, so I am 100% confident there is nothing missing or corrupted in the firefox &/or thunderbird data...
relevant entry in /etc/fstab: server:/nfs/dan/Documents /home/dan/Documents nfs defaults 0 0 relevant entry in server's /etc/exports: /nfs/dan/Documents client(rw)
ok so the router works in windows and i know the config details of it.i can see other wifi access points in the area but not my one. i have tried joining it as a "hidden network" to no avail.is there any reason why fedora would not detect my own wifi when it detects substantially weaker signals instead??
I have been experiencing slight problems while attempting to connect to the internet via a wireless router. I can connect to my router perfectly fine on Vista and I could connect to my friends router while I was in Ubuntu, but I can't connect to my router while on Ubuntu. I've been entering the same code that will work when I'm in Vista, but it wont work while in Ubuntu.
I am spending a week in my grandparents house and I forgot my router. So is it possible to share the Ethernet connection I have with my phone using my laptop's wifi without a router? I think (I have very little knowledge about wireless networks )something like ad hoc network should do the trick? If so how do you set it up?
I have been having trouble getting Thunderbird to open links within my emails. When a link is clicked there is no response at all. I am running firefox version 3.6.2 and Thunderbird 3.0.3. After surfing the interweb and the forums I have tried setting the default browser through Firefox itself and through the preferred applications GUI in Ubuntu with no luck. I have gone into the about:config for Thunderbird and added the following lines:
I have been using Ubuntu 10.04 for a couple months now and am currently using it with Firefox 3.6.3 and Thunderbird 3.0.4. I was wondering if it was possible to view thumbnails when trying to upload a picture (e.g. to eBay) or adding a picture as an attachment to an email rather than just having a list view and having to click on each picture to get a preview. I have quite a lot of pictures and it becomes a bit time consuming trying to find the right one to upload.
