Networking :: Cannot Connect To Router Via Wireless - Connection Failed

Jan 6, 2011

I've been at this the last 3 hours now or so. I am not a very good with Linux, I am fine with all other areas. I have this laptop, with a Intel Pro 2200BG card. The idea was to install a lxde lightwieght on it and use PCLINUXOS, because its "easy". This computer is for internet browsing and thats it. Under the Network Center -- I can see all networks, including neighbours. When I try to connect to my router via Wireless, I get connection failed over and over.

I then tried doing all the following:
Changing the router from WEP to, WPA, WPA2 personal, WPA2 Enterprise
Changing the SSID, broadcasting to ON, changing the SSID name
I've used various different passwords, and reset the router now about 50 times. I am connecting to my Router (as Ive changed the SSID and noticed it picks up the new name). (Yes I can see the correct MAC addreess). Yes I am on the right channel, all good here.

My Nintendo DS is connecting fine with all the changed settings now. The wireless card worked fine under Windows XP (However I just removed the operating system since I really had no need for it). I've tried every other mode, it works wired. Like I had explained above, I downloaded a what I thought was an easy verison (distro), I was really hoping to get away from the crazy windows life with crazy errors and instability.

I did try enabling display log, and doing it manually by adding a connection, etc. The log tells me about as less would a windows event log: it says
Problems occurred during the network connectivity test
This can be caused by invalid network config or problems w/ your momde / router
Reluanch, etc.

I can connect to the internet fine with wvdial and wvdialconf; heck I am even posting from my PCLinuxOS FM Distro. I want to setup an ethernet connection between two PC's, one running PCLOS 2010.11 FullMonty and the other Knoppix 6.2.0. Knoppix is fine and setting up a connection is simple but with PCLOS I have been having many problems trying to set it up. I tried using the drakconnect tool but it did not work. I tried assigning it a static IP Address but the other PC would still not pick it up and to to it all I keep getting the same error message about problems during the network connectivity test!

Ubuntu Networking :: No Internet Connection Mint 8 - Won't Connect With My Wireless Router

Feb 12, 2010

I have just installed Linux Mint 8 to an Asus A6000. My problem is that the computer won't connect with my wireless router. I have tried with MAC-adress and such, but still no respons. I also tried to connect with a cable to my modem, but no response there either.

I think I may lack some drivers, to what I think is Broadcom b43, but I am not sure. I tried to download the drivers on my other computer, and transfered them to the Asus. I managed to install 2/4 drivers, but on the two others, I get this message "Failed to fetch ... Couldn't reach archive.ubuntu.com"

Networking :: Wireless Network Connection - Router - Won't Connect Fast - Automatic

May 26, 2009

My computer takes a while to connect to my Linksys N router.

It used to connect in a snap of your finger automatically.

Now it does not.

Yes I have tried manual configuration, and double checking the password, ssid, protocols, and security type.

WPA2 personal is the security type.

There are maybe 4 different ways I know how to connect. The most annoying thing is when this box pops up saying to type in a password for the network connection.. and keeps popping up even when everything is right.

All I need is a reliable, easy, and automatic program to connect me to the internet, maybe even before I log into my system.

Linux Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Desktop Edition is my system. Brilliant system.

Ubuntu Networking :: Use One Wireless Router To Connect/detect To Another Wireless Router?

Aug 1, 2010

My son lost his USB Wireless stick for his Computer. I had thought I heard that if you had a second wireless router, you could use it somehow to detect the wireless router you have already set up in your home (like using a wireless card)? Is this what Ad-Hoc is? Either way, can this be done and if so how? I use a WRT54Gx2 Lynksys router and have a TRENDNET TEW-432BRP wireless router and also a spare D-link DI-514. I use ubuntu 10.04, and also wanted to know if I connected one of the router to his on the LAn port could he connect msaybe through an Ad-Hoc on my local computer here? He uses XP on his. I'm a newbie to linux and networking in general.

Ubuntu Networking :: Router Too Far Away - Failed To Establish Connection

May 3, 2010

Dual boot Vista Basic and Ubuntu 10.04 on low spec PC. I can connect to the wireless when I am next to it. I move to the room where the computer is normally used and I lose connection. I can still see it but it fails to establish a connection. Okay, sounds like it's just too far way but when I re-boot and use Vista, it works fine (1 or 2 bars, but it works). Is this a driver issue? Anything I can do apart from move my wireless router?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Card - WEP Encryption For Wireless Router Not Allow Me To Connect

May 5, 2011

wlan0 Authentication capabilities :

WPA
WPA2
CIPHER-TKIP
CIPHER-CCMP

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Tenda W322P Wireless Card Crashing Wireless Router On Connect

Jun 30, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To Router Via Wired Connection?

Jun 24, 2011

I have installed Ubuntu for the first time (version 11.04), finally making the step to open source software. Everything seems to be working fine, however I can't connect to my router via a wired connection.I can use the wireless network,hich was detected and I could connect by giving the code. But when I try to connect to this network by wired network, it tries to connect and it says "connection offline" after a while. It never establishes a connection. I used the standard automatic DHCP settings of eth0. I never got this problem with another OS and it's not the cable that's not working

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't See Router Via Wireless Connection

Aug 26, 2010

I am having problems connecting to my new router. It just does not appear in the list of connections under Network Manager. It is not a problem with my laptop's wireless adapter as I can connect to another wireless router. It is also not a problem with the router itself - my Nintendo Wii can pick it up over Wi-Fi and use it and that is further away from the router. It also works if I ethernet it straight into the laptop.The router was provided by Sky Broadband and is a D-Link, pretty standard type of ADSL router with four ethernet ports, wireless and telephone cable socket. I am using the default settings for the SSID and network key, as well as the encryption type (WPA).Ubuntu version = 10.04. The wireless adapter is a very standard issue onboard Intel device but as I say, I can connect to my old Belkin wireless router no problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Connection Can't Even Ping Router

Feb 4, 2010

Previously posted under "Wireless Connection Can't Even Ping Router".I've been using Ubuntu for two years. About a year ago I switched to Kubuntu because I prefer the KDE desktop. Two weeks ago I bought a new laptop: Dell Vostro v13. I installed Kubuntu 9.10 from the live CD and everything worked! Well, almost. I also set up a home wireless network with a new Belkin N+ router from WalMart. When I try to connect to my router, the Plasma Network Manager reports that I'm connected and the assigned IP address, but I'm not truly connected! I can't even ping my own router, all packets are lost.

This problem is intermittent, sometimes I connect fine. I dual-boot with Windoze7 and it connects without problems. Also, if I connect with Windoze, then re-boot into Kubuntu, it seems to "wake-up" the connection somehow and it works. I might also add that I connect without difficulty to other routers in my neighborhood, at work, in airports, etc.My old laptop was also running Kubuntu 9.10, and it connected to the Belkin router without problems, although it was a different wireless card and driver. I also tried Ubuntu 9.10 from the live CD and it also reported a connection, IP address, etc. I couldn't ping the router from that connection either!

Ubuntu Networking :: Connection To Wireless Router But No Internet (DNS)?

Jul 3, 2011

We just set up a password for our wireless router (D-link DIR-615). WPA personal. After doing that, I can no longer connect to the internet. I can connect to the wireless router, however. Same problem for the Apple Macs in the house. We called Dlink. The fix for a Mac was to add DNS servers (4.2.2.2) under TCP/IP But there doesn't seem to be anywhere to specify a DNS server in Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect To Wireless Router

Mar 17, 2011

I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and am really happy. I want to sort the wireless conection out now. I have been through this forum for hours today and can't get it working. I have a Broadcom wireless card, which seems to be working fine, but I am not 100% convinced.I have attached the output of some of the commands that I have seen referred to on here.

I am using the wired connection on the same router, so the router connects fine.I click on the network icon and I see the skyNNNN router in the list. I have tried connecting to it and it asks me for my password, which I provide then nothing happens until it asks me again.I have removed the security from the router and I then see the same skyNNNN router without a
lock icon. I try to connect and it still fails.I am not using an access list on the router, so there is no issue with the mac address.

Networking :: Can't Connect To Wireless Router Using Ubuntu 9.04

Sep 18, 2009

I'm trying to connect to a new Belkin wireless router, but wicd refuses to connect. I've been reading some of the other threads but they haven't made much sense as the hardware is different.

The output from the iwconfig command is as follows:

When I ran lspci it told me I had a RaLink RT2800 802.11n PCI Network Controller. On the box it says it "Supports the most popular systems" and mentions Linux. I'm using a 63 character WPA2 password, which has been copied from a USB key, so I know that is correct.

Networking :: Connect To Internet Through A (wireless) Router?

Jul 30, 2010

I connect my internet using pppoe to may DSL modem with bridging mode, and it goes fine until I try to put a wireless router between my PC and the modem. After I configure both modem and the router, I can run my wireless network fine by connecting it from a laptop, but my PC is unable to reach the modem at this configuration.

PC has address 192.168.2.100
Router has address 192.168.2.2
Modem has address 192.168.2.1
all with netmask 255.255.255.0

With bridging configuration in modem and automatic detect configuration in the wireless router, the wireless network run well, except the PC cannot ping the Modem saying that

Code:

root@firefly:~# ping 192.168.2.1
PING 192.168.2.1 (192.168.2.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
From 192.168.2.100 icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable

Looks like my PC, which has Slackware 13.0, don't know how to reach the modem even they are physically connected.

1. how can I configure the modem, PC, and router so that the PC can reach the router? Do I need to do add route gateway from the PC?

2. How can I configure internet connection from the PC (before I use PPPoE)?

3. How can I configure the modem, PC, and router so that the wireless network is on?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Connection Requires Router Reboot?

Feb 11, 2011

I was having an issue with my wireless connection last week, and sometimes even my hardwired connection. It had seemed like every time my PC went into standby, or any low-power mode, the WiFi would stop working. I used the "power off" command and got it back and running. When I boot up the computer in the morning, I am unable to connect until I reset the wireless router. Unfortunately, I did not have the presence of mind to get iwconfig first thing in the morning, but I did reboot the laptop and grabbed iwconfig before I connected and after I connected. Now, for some reason, the router worked when I rebooted, but I had to reset it this morning. Any ideas? iwconfig below:

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect After Connecting To A Wireless Router

Oct 30, 2010

Ubuntu 10.10 connects to a DSL modem without any problems - I mean I just plugged it in and it worked - GREAT I bought a wireless router so I could connect my netbook and now my Ubuntu machine which is simply using a cable from the wireless router now DOES NOT connect. I tried a windows machine on the wired connection from the wireless router and it connects without a problem. OF course if I remove the wireless router from the chain, i.e. simply connect directly to the modem it works straight away.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Connect To Wireless Router

Aug 12, 2011

Firstly, the actual problem I'm having is that when I start my computer (netbook) up in the morning and try to connect to the router (wirelessly) it just... doesn't work. I've used it before, at full signal strength, and it was completely fine. It never disconnects me or anything - but if I shut down my computer, like I do overnight, when I start it up again often it's hardly getting a signal at all (or so it says) and when it tries to connect it makes the connecting animation and occasionally flashes to a circular thing like firefox's loading animation. Eventually it just fails.

I try restarting my computer, but it doesn't seem to help. The last time, I had to wait until the signal looked "full" again, then delete the settings in "edit connections" for that router and only then would it let me log in again, even though I was using the same password from the same computer (even in the same place). That only seems to help when the connection looks "full" though, and even then, not always. Normally I'd try resetting the router, but I can't because it's locked in the next room (I rent a room here and the guy with the key is rarely around) but honestly I don't think the router is causing this, for a few reasons:............
