Are you perhaps using a DSL or Cable modem that has a USB port for connection to the computer, and using the ethernet or router for the other computer? Those types of modems only support one connection type at a time... so if the computer connected to the USB is turned on the Ethernet will stop working and/or vice versa. One other thought, is if you are ...

Do check if the other way around also happens: switch on your laptop first, then switch on her PC and check if the same problem persists. If so, then the most likely cause is that both your machines have the same IP address.

Please download this file and drag and drop it to your desktop: http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/multiverse/l/linux-firmware-nonfree/linux-firmware-nonfree_1.11_all.deb Install in from the terminal with: cd ~/Desktop sudo dpkg -i linux*.deb Unplug and replug the device and tell us if it's working.

There are two ways that the ISP can block VPN. Blocking the protocol, then no VPN will work. Blocking the IP-address or domain-name of VPN-hosting sites. Alternative 2 is most likely what they are doing. This answer Exede needs to answer. It does not make any difference if you are running Windows or Ubuntu, the VPN protocoll is the same for both.

I believe that bcmwl-kernel-source, which you already have installed, is incorrect for your device. I suggest: sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source sudo modprobe -r wl sudo modprobe brcmsmac It may take a reboot.

AFAICS, your modem is already doing the routing/gateway job between your LAN and the WAN. If you want to set up a gateway on your Linux box, you need to configure and start some software to link the WAN to the LAN (iptables is fine). You probably need to change the configuration of your modem from router to bridge and use pppoe to connect your ISP directly ...

I've only been able to get a wired connection with 14.04 myself, though it's possible you might be able to find an application on Software Center that may help you find what you're looking for.

If you already have wifi, you just set the adapter up on your computer, then connect to your wifi as you would with any computer. If you can't get it set up on your computer, try looking at the installation and setup section near the bottom of: http://www.netgear.com/service-providers/products/home/networking/wifi-adapters/WNA3100.aspx#tab-support

"Hard Blocked" refers to your "fn" keys on your laptop. Press "fn" along with the wifi button to toggle wifi on and off. Rfkill cannot override this switch. Don't feel bad if this is the problem I did the same thing the first time this happened to me.

Try to run a test against DSLReports.com and see if they measure an issue with the connection, preferably compare to a different computer also running on your network. This will diagnose if there is a genuine issue with the specific computer. It's entirely possible there's some Wifi driver issue. Those problems do occur on occasion.

I would suggest getting off that channel (2462). There's like 4 people using that in your area and you're most likely suffering from interference issues. You're at channel 11 (2462) and channel 1 (2412) looks pretty congested as well so pick a channel like 3, 4, 7, 8 or 10. Do this through your wireless router settings. ...

Assuming that your router is 172.16.12.1, your problem is that your machine doesn't know to send Internet-bound packets there. route add default gw 172.16.12.1 That will make it send everything not on your LAN out through that address. If that's not your router, find out what your router's address is and substitute it in.

Yes, this should work out of the box. Shutdown the guest, and in the Virtualbox manager, add a virtual network card to it. Set the network type to "NAT". Start the guest again - the virtual computer should recognize the card and have network access on it. (You may need to install the Virtualbox additions in the guest.)

If your router has been assigned a 10.*.*.* address, then it is not on the public Internet, but is sitting behind another NAT router. This is confirmed by whatismyipaddress.com. To reach your server from the Internet, you would need to get a port forwarding rule in this second NAT router.

Please Read RFC 1918 - Address Allocation For Private Internets, specifically Part 3.
