You should first ensure that the /etc/network/interfaces file contains at least the loopback interface configuration: auto lo iface lo inet loopback Next, if you have any auto stanzas and the interfaces might not be available at boot, you can replace auto with allow-hotplug to prevent upstart from waiting for them to be brought up (i.e. replace auto eth0 ...

what I understand that you have to change Fn-F9 from toggling airplane mode to toggling wireless ,, I suggest that 1) Disable Fn-F9 from toggling airplane: open dconf-editor (install it if not) and search for WLAN (press ctrl + f and type WLAN) then it's up to you to change the binding if you find it 2) Bind Fn-F9 to toggling wireless as in my other ...

To set up the VPN via the gui network-manager, you need to provide a key and some certificates. They are actually all in the client.ovpn file that you can download via a web browser connection to your access server. It is then a matter of copying them out of that text file and pasting them into separate files. But there is an easier way because the ...

According to TP-Link your card supports Linux with the Atheros9k (ath, ath_9k modules) driver. This should come default on an Ubuntu installation.

You use URL encoding. There are several online tools which do the job, or you can look up the hex value of the character and prefix it with a %. So, Gmail@123 becomes Gmail%40123.

You need these two lines in your /etc/network/interfaces file always: auto lo iface lo inet loopback There are system critical programs that need this local network information to operate. See the answer here that explains a bit more about it.

If this is the case you can try with some changes, sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces After this press CtrlX and N to remove the changes. After doing this it is must to restarts the system. sudo reboot Hope this helps.

What fixed the issue here (Mint 17, compatible with Ubuntu 14.04) was: sudo apt-get install --reinstall network-manager sudo apt-get install --reinstall network-manager-gnome sudo service dbus restart followed by a logout and then a login. In fact, many other notification area indicators were missing (not only nm-applet), and this fixed them all.

The problem was that I removed the notification area. This includes the volume indicator, the network applet and the battery status. The solution is simple: Add the notification area to your panel. You do so by right-clicking on the panel, "Add to Panel..." and choosing Notification Area: This gives you the network manager applet (nm-applet), the sound / ...

I believe that lack of dhcp server may be a problem here. In such a case you will need to setup static IP in interfaces (make sure about dhcp with whoever manages the network) iface eth0 inet dhcp dhcp means that interface should look for dhcp server which will assign IP to it. And if there's no dhcp server in the network something like this may be ...

For headless servers where there's no X and management is via ssh or whatever, a command-line solution is necessary. If resolv.conf is not overwritten, then that's the correct place to change nameservers. If resolv.conf does get overwritten then, on 14.04LTS at least, the files to edit are: /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head ...

I'm not really sure what exactly you're trying to do - but using loopback interfaces for it is most likely wrong idea. if you have virtual systems on your vmware host - may be better to create some network like, say, 192.168.1.0/24 and in this network assign separate IP to each of your guests: i.e.: 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.2 192.168.1.3 etc. You can bring ...

So after messing around I figured out how to fix my issue, sudo gedit /etc/rc.local after I went there I put ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off speed 100 duplex full above the exit 0 and this seemed to fix it at least for now. I would like to thank Fabby for all the help, I didn't try his answer, but I may have to if I get the problem again.

Go to a terminal using Ctrl+Alt+Tand type: gksudo gedit /etc/network interfaces in your eth2 section add: iface eth2 inet ... ... ... up sleep 5; ethtool -s eth2 -s eth2 speed 100 duplex full (note the 100, not 1000: internally on the LAN, 100 is slow but towards the Internet 100 is fast) If that works reliably for some time (a week), ...

In Fedora and other systemd distro's that do not have /var/log/syslog, the VPN logs can be accessed with "sudo journalctl -f" -f is for follow.

You can undo your settings with changing false to true: $ gsettings set org.gnome.nm-applet disable-connected-notifications true $ gsettings set org.gnome.nm-applet disable-disconnected-notifications true $ gsettings set org.gnome.nm-applet disable-vpn-notifications true Or you can reset the value of keys to default with reset option: $ gsettings reset ...

When you set up your VPN connection through the GUI the password is saved in the key-ring. If you save your password in the connection file, like this: sudo nano /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/MyConnectionExampleName in this file: # 1 here means key-ring I think, but with 0, the password below is used [vpn] password-flags=0 ...

The solution is to remove the non-default lines in the network device configuration in /etc/network.

It's late to answer, but I found a solution... Create a folder in your home directory called .OpenVPN (with the dot in front of it so it is hidden) then open that folder and create one called FrootVPN (no dot needed). This makes management of different VPN providers easier. Copy/Paste froot.ovpn to the /home/YOU/.OpenVPN/FrootVPN folder. Open the ...

Connect the server by wire to a wired/wireless router and the router will take care of everything. If the server has both wired and wireless, turn off the wireless (or if you need redundancy, bond the wireless and wired connection.)

The proprietary driver wl is generally not the preferred driver for your 14e4:4727 device. Let's remove it: sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source And now we load the preferred driver: sudo modprobe brcmsmac It may take a reboot. Is there any improvement?

If you can use DHCP, do it and delete all DNS settings from the interface, let router assign you the right DNS server to your network card, if you do your settings manually in /etc/network/interfaces or else, you may configure multiple settings for one interface, wlan0 and wlan0:0, one for school and one for other, there use only the necessary DNS servers in ...
