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.
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)
It is most certainly my fault but I am now without a sound volume control and it does not show up in the add to panel.What can I do here? Does your icon have code that that I can use or can I find the file somewhere and create a link? Alsa mixer works ok and nothing is muted and I have sound so as to play music. The Internet connection and the power connection icons also don't appear.
After upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04, I'm not able to make any connection to the internet with either my netbook through WiFi or my computer on wired LAN. I can, however, ping my Solaris machines and Macbook. How do I fix this?
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.
1 linksys router: gets the net from PPPOE and give the network DHCP. The router IP is 192.168.1.1. 1 windows laptop that work wireless and wired. 1 debian desktop that work wired and not working wireless. THe problem with the debian desktop is like this: I have a TP-Link TL-WN321G installed and found by lsusb command. I make a wireless connection WPA Personal (just like the router settings) it says i am connected to the wl network but no internet connection. the route command give me this:
I tryed with wicd who said that the connection is WEP (and it's not, it is setup to WPA on the router and the network-manager conncetion) and when i try to connect i get bad password. I tryed with network-manager uninstalled and no chance.
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.
OpenSuse 11.4 Asus Netbook 1000H Following other members in the forums I have installed Opensuse 11.4 on the Netbook. In the early days Ubuntu Netbook Remix worked well for me. But this has been discarded, and the "one size fits all" Ubuntu had become slow and cumbersome. So..... onto my post. Opensuse is working well. The install went beautifully.
It detected the Wireless Internet and I am able to get on line. I also need to share the Internet connection to a desktop. This is done via a small network switch. Thus far I cannot do this. I tried to use ifup to configure a static ip but this busted my Wireless configuration. I went back to knetwork manager. Then I tried to set up the wired network using knetwork manager and under IPV4 "share" the connection. But this blanks out any possiblity of a static address and substitutes dhcp. My desktop cannot ping the this dhcp address. Ubuntu had this thing called Firestarter? - from memory. This configured the system to sharing the network.
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:
I need to setup an Ubuntu Server to handle backups over the network (probably rsync over ssh). That server will then transfer the backup data offsite over a secondary external data line.How can I configure the ethernet interfaces to handle such a scenario?
I got a dsl broadband connection....I have dual booting on my lappy(Windows7 and ubuntu 9.10)....my problem is i cannot set up the internet connection in ubuntu while i am using the connection in windows7....I am a total newbie in linux
I turned on my computer today and was unable to access the wireless, I tried to use etho but no luck either. I'm currently running 10.04 and haven't installed any updates or done anything out of the ordinary. I tried removing the internet connection from the network manager and then re adding it, but nothing working :/
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 just changed my wireless connection over to wired and my computer claims it's connected but when I try to open and webpage (or even ping) it can't connect.
Keep in mind I am plugged directly into the router. Also I'm not sure if this is helpful but, I did have connection sharing for my xbox when I had wireless. I'm typing this on windows 7 which is driving me further into insanity by the minute.
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...
Tried to search for this but must not be using the right terminology. Anyway, last week did a clean install of Lucid in a triple boot alongside Hardy & XP. Loving everything about Lucid--boot times, user-friendliness, tweak ability, &c. But I fired it up this morning and no internet. Where to start looking?
In Damn Small Linux? I have a dinosaur computer I need to use for something, and there's no ethernet port. But there is USB. On the internet box my ISP provided there's a port for a usb cable. But I plug it in and there's no connection. Tried Vector too. Is there a terminal command to make it work?

I deleted "auto eth0" to see if it fixed but it didn't I want to know how to connect to my wired internet adsl?

I have dual boot OS and I'm using Ubuntu with Win 7. Previously I was using Fedora but I thought to change the flavor! So I installed Ubuntu, but now I'm truly facing problem with my Internet connection! Its too slow in Ubuntu, the both surfing and downloading speed! Usually in windows I get 200-400 kbps download speed when downloading a file and if I download the same file in Ubuntu using flashget I'm getting only 60-70 kbps speed! Also the surfing is too slow! My broadband's bandwidth is 2.1 Mbps!

Could someone give me a link to where i would download the drivers? Also someone told me i need to have a card? What is card?
I have downloaded ubuntu 11.04 and the internet does not connect to by bt home hub 2. The computer connects to bt Fon and bt openzone but not to the home hub. It recognises that the home hub is there and accepts the password but then tries to connect and fails. I tried running the trouble shooting help section for wirless on ubuntu and it advised me to go on to a forum as the computer was not fully recognising my network adapter. My wireless connector is intel RJ45.
