As of 2016-05-13 this libnl bug is affecting also users without trusty-proposed, who will almost certainly be directed here by Google. Updated libnl and network-manager packages have already been released, so I recommend a forward upgrade. Enable Network Manually Assuming you are using a wired connection, eth0and a network with DHCP enabled, configure ...

I would not recommend downgrading packages or installing new ones by hand - this will inevitably lead to version issues later on. The best fix to this issue is simply to upgrade the network-manager package. The first thing to do is to connect manually to the internet; while the network-manager is dead this does not mean you can not connect. 1. Open a ...

Just so that we are clear on this, some points: The Ubuntu laptop was previously running Windows The speed of the network goes up when you have Ubuntu in the mix. Take out the Ubuntu laptop and the speed goes down. What I would check: The model of the router (update your question please). Whether there exists any address reservation. I have seen that ...

Edit: upon re-reading your question I surmise that your server is behind a firewall that you do not control? If so, please disregard the iptables part of the answer and skip to the SSH config part... Is it a matter of wanting the transport to be encrypted, or is it simply a matter of getting through the firewall? Getting through the firewall could be as ...

It seems that your particular card requires some additional proprietary software components to be installed which come with a licence that has restrictive distribution terms, this is why Ubuntu was unable to take care of this issue for you during the install. Seems that other users with same same installed hardware have already faced and resolved this ...

Follow the instructions in the linked answer. However, in your case you'll need to download the .deb under Windows, copy it to a USB stick, reboot into Ubuntu and copy and install the .deb from the USB stick.

You can write-update a password to a seperate file. This works for me: echo "vpn.secrets.password:MY_PASSWORD" > /my/vpn/password nmcli con up uuid MY_UUID passwd-file /my/vpn/password If you can't do that, you can also "simulate" keyboard, run sudo apt-get install xautomation and try this script (works for me at 16.04 as well): #!/bin/bash nmcli con ...

VPN Autoconnect states that "It seems that NetworkManager fails to obtain the user's VPN password from gnome-keyring-daemon." it also states a possible workaround.

As you can see on this line: May 17 15:44:18 pi kernel: [ 0.971359] e1000e 0000:00:19.0 eno1: renamed from eth0 your network card gets renamed to eno1, so using ethtool eth0 will yield no results. You need to use ethtool eno1 Use lspci -v . This will show you what kernel module is handling your network card. If there is no module listed, you need ...

This issue is an ongoing problem and the following is more like a temporary answer. Step 1. Add repository for the latest driver (maintained by lwfinger on GitHub) and install it. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hanipouspilot/rtlwifi sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install rtlwifi-new-dkms linux-firmware If you cannot install the driver then, disable secure ...

Your laptop has no WiFi because it is in airplane mode, the same mode it was in when you sent it back to Toshiba. Press the Fn key and F12 simultaneously to turn Wi-Fi back on. If this does not work check that your F12 key is working. Run /lib/udev/findkeyboards to find the correct device for your keyboard. Sample output is USB keyboard: input/event6 AT ...

I looked around trying to find an answer for you and there is a user reporting that disconnecting the laptop from the mains power supply, removing the battery and then pressing and holding the power button for 30 seconds before replacing the battery and rebooting the laptop resolved the issue. Presumably this sequence is performing a factory reset on the ...

I just switched to Ubuntu so I can't double-check, but was use KDE before. I'm think the package you're looking to install is network-manager-l2tp and then use the network manager GUI to create a new VPN connection. At least that's what I remember doing.

Check (vi/nano) /etc/network/interfaces I willing to bet you only have lo interface. If so run dmesg | grep "eth0" it may tell you that eth0 has been changed to new name, then you will have to add the new interface name to /etc/network/interfaces. If above does not work try ifconfig to see if there is a new name. hope this helps!!

Setting up P2P systems like bittorrent is a PITA and problems seem to recur even after things start working (especially with port forwarding). Anything is possible, but it is very unlikely that your ISP even looks at your OS in this situation. The usual problem is port forwarding. Bittorrent uses a port for incoming requests from other peers. Usually, this ...
