I think its network manager issue. I had same problem with Intel Wireless-AC 7260. I executed iwconfig - and the card was there but it was down (iwlist scan failed) - so I run these commands to bring it up manually: sudo ifconfig wlp4s0 up service network-manager restart and it appeared in gnome just like a charm.

You want to set up port forwarding on your router, and forward port 22 of router to port 22 of your machine. People connecting to the router ( piblic ip ) of your home network will be forwarded to your home computer. As this setting varies from router to router, i cannot provide an example. Refer to your routers user manual

Two ideas: Experiment with a different cipher Use 'on the fly' compression 1. Experiment with a different cipher: One idea is to test the various ciphers which are available through scp and try to determine which is the fastest for you. (The idea behind this is that it is the encryption of your data that is taking up the time.) Find the available ...

16.04 runs on systemd. Try the following: sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager.service If this works, you can create a script to automate it. Open a terminal and type the following: sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/wifi-resume.service Now paste the script in there with a right click. Exit with CTRL + X and press Y to save. Now to activate it: sudo ...

The problem seems to be solved in the next release of vagrant: https://github.com/mitchellh/vagrant/issues/7155 I tried another box from Jeff Geerling https://twitter.com/geerlingguy/status/723571293174427648?lang=fr and it worked perfectly for me. Jeff has done a lot of great work on Vagrant/Ansible so I guess it's the best solution before the release of ...

It depends on your privacy concerns... Your username and hostname could be used by someone who cracked your wifi as a "hint" to access your samba/netatalk shares. It can reveal some info about you depending on how you named the host and your username... But these are not a system vulnerability, but a privacy concern. I, personally, change my hostname and ...

I had the same problem as you, and I just found the problem. The 5Ghz network was setted to choose automatically the channel, one day it changed to a channel with an high number and my card wasn't able to find the network anymore. So just check in your router if the network has an high number channel and change it back to a lower one (now I'm with channel ...

GUI-only: this worked for me, though I don't know how. I am using a Lenovo B570, an older laptop with a minimal Phoenix BIOS and, I believe, a Broadcom 4313. Proprietary wifi works out-of-the-box using my LiveUSB of 16.04. I only lack wifi after installation. So, I figured this is a failure of my hardware configuration. In order to get the proprietary ...

Firefox is now GTK3 based, Chrome is still GTK2 based., so that's not that easy. You will have to edit your theme or use a theme that supports this. Since GTK3 is very new in firefox some themes can have problems, though I personally like GTK3 better. You could add a bookmark to ./config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks, nano ./config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks and see if that ...

Try to connect/evaluate the connection with the command-line utility nmcli This will give you more output about what is really happening.

The first thing to try in case of a failing network connection that does not lie outside the system is to restart the Network Manager service. On pre-systemd machines (like 14.04) the command is sudo service NetworkManager restart. On systemd machines you would do either systemctl restart NetworkManager or systemctl restart network-manager.

I have been able to reproduce this with perfect network connectivity when steam is closed unexpectedly. The solution in my case was to remove: .local/share/Steam/config This solution worked for me, and didn't force me to reinstall any game, just to login again

OK, I think I got it - my Auto Ethernet connection was set to Method "Automatic (DHCP)", and I noticed more-less by accident there is another option "Automatic (DHCP) addresses only", so I tried setting that: ... and finally, I can have both local Ethernet and broadband connections active - and I can access both local network addresses and Internet. Hope ...

To supplement Morteza Pourkazemi's answer, the answer works for me, but I need to install the following packages which are required by the configure command. sudo apt-get install intltool libxml2-dev libgtk-3-dev libsecret-1-dev libopenconnect-dev network-manager-dev libnm-util-dev libnm-glib-dev libnm-glib-vpn-dev

The driver r8169 is problematic and there are several things we might try. Let's start with the simplest first and see if we can fix it. If not, I will edit this answer to proceed to the more complex. Please open a terminal and do: sudo ethtool -s eth0 speed 100 duplex full autoneg off Now check: dmesg | grep eth0 Does the link come back up? Note ...

I found a workaround for anyone who might be having the same issue. No idea what the actual problem is but it seems as though setting the IPv6 settings "Method" section to "ignore" has resolved it.

Let's try different firmware. With a working internet connection by ethernet, tethered or whatever means possible, open a terminal and do: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install git git clone https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware.git cd ath10k-firmware/QCA6174/hw2.1/ sudo cp * /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA6174/hw2.1/ cd /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA6174/hw2.1/ ...

You have backports installed and they are not needed in 16.04, so we need to uninstall cd backports-20151120 sudo make uninstall Reboot and wifi should work if the firmware has been installed Not many people have more than one version of backports so you can use the autocomplete that is built into terminal Type cd backports then press TAB and it should ...

Additional info: I have the same exact problem as OP describes, but only the problem where the nm-applet icon changes to arrows and does not display wifi info. The wifi still works when this happens. $ killall nm-applet && nm-applet & Does the trick for getting the icon to display again, so it's just a workaround for now in case someone wants ...

I have the exact same problem. After waking from sleep, wifi still works but networks not showing. I solve the problem by restarting the network manager. sudo service network-manager restart Still very annoying. I hope they fix this issue soon.

I was having the same problem. I fixed the suspend wake issue by creating this script at /etc/systemd/system/wifi-resume.service (the one the OP posted only worked for the active session; on reboot it had to be called again): #/etc/systemd/system/wifi-resume.service #sudo systemctl enable wifi-resume.service [Unit] Description=Restart networkmanager at ...
