Based on Lander's anwer I look for a way to upgrade the firmeware of the card, I didn't found anything for ubuntu on HP site ... I didn't want to install RHE7 but I think I should have as it will have been much simpler/safer that the way I used. FYI, what I've done( again I don't advise to do it): Here what I've done: Get the USBlive from Qlogic ...

Does your user has a Samba Password? sudo smbpasswd -a <myunixusername> This can be the same pswd as the password for your user -- it has not to be. It makes it easier though.

I have a lenovo y50 with the same card and I constantly keep running into the same problem. The following command always helps me fix that. echo "options rtl8723be fwlps=0" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf sudo reboot

This device is known for that. Lets try: echo "options rtl8723be swenc=1 fwlps=0 ips=0" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf echo 'KERNEL=="wlan0", RUN+="/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 txpower 18"' | sudo tee -a /etc/udev/rules.d/75-wlan.rules Reboot

It looks like you removed iwlwifi module. You need to re-install the kernel. Run in terminal: sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-`uname-r` linux-image-extra-`uname -r` and reboot.

You can run a remote desktop server on your desktop pc (vino-server) and connect to it with remmina on your laptop. You will be able to do anything on the desktop that you could do if you were sitting there. If all you want is command line access, as AzkerM stated in a comment, you can run an ssh server on the desktop and connect to it from your laptop.

If this was interference or weak signal then I would think it would stay at the low speed. It may just be a power saving mode. Try: sudo iw dev wlan0 get power_save If it's on, then run sudo iw dev wlan0 set power_save off See if that helps. Replace wlan0 with your WiFi adapters name.

This could be a driver problem, however, it could simply be interference in your home (another wireless signal etc). There are a few best practises for placing your router in your home; see if any of these may apply: Place router in a central location (centre of your home) Avoid metal objects near your router (microwaves etc) Avoid placing near walls Try ...

You should only have 1 gateway as far as I know. All traffic goes to the Internet through that interface. route add default gw 192.168.0.1 eth0 Should be sufficient. Although I'm not sure if it's required as you set the gateway in your eth0 config. See what the route command lists before you try adding it, it will probably have a default listed. Then as ...

The conclusion that I have reached is that I couldn't connect to my share because the version of Samba that is installed with Ubuntu 15.10 (Samba 4.1.17) had a bug that didn't allow it to properly authenticate users. My solution for this problem was installing Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS and using Samba 4.1.6 along with it. Now Samba works flawlessly. Note: I ...

I had the similar issue on my HP Envy laptop which has Intel 3165 wifi adaptor card. I tried many work around involving getting the firmware from the git repository also. It helped me for some time but my wifi connection used to go away after 1-2 hours. Finally I looked into Intel's website and they also had mentioned that Kernel 4.1+ is certified for 3165. ...

It seems like a problem with the driver of your wireless card. First step I would do is delete the line you added: sudo vim /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi-opt.conf This will allow you to edit the file, find the line (`"options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1 swcrypto=1 bt_coex_active=0 power_save=0"')and delete or comment it. I'm not sure how to fix the intermittancy ...

On the server (sharing) side : right click on folder you want to share (e.g Documents) then click properties : Enable sharing option (nautilus will download and install samba for you).

Samba is not directly required for your Ubuntu to Android file sharing.

rTorrent is weird.. After start it changes the access rights of socket file, making it unaccessible for lighttpd. I am experiencing the same problem, and currently I just run chmod 777 /home/vinz243/torrent/rpc.socket every time, after rtorrent starts... I think, chmod 777 is not a good solution for production, but I have just a dev-version... Hope, ...

Since you mentioned "want to connect to the printer wifi network", wireless printers are not meant to initiate any network. Instead, you are supposed to set them up for an existing wirless network (offered by some router) and send jobs to the printer while being connected to the same network.

I have a similar problem. My Ubuntu desktop is on a VPN and my normal SSH connection doesn't work from outside the home network. Something I did just think of, though. Do you still have the ports forwarded to that computer? The VPN assigns a new IP address from the VPN site so the router can no longer find that IP address to connect to. I would assume ...

You might try to enable Additional Drivers in System settings > Software and update. If your card needs additional driver to operate properly, then you have to install it. The installation might need temporary wired internet connection to download the necessary packages.

You should have more success by assigning a static IP address for your machine through your router software as opposed to assigning from Ubuntu. This works fine on our configuration.

Not sure if you're using the default smb.conf that's configured for ease of setting up or not. I'd recommend doing that first for debugging. You need to run sudo smbpasswd -a <user> for each user that needs to login as well (I usually have to anyway). There should be a default smb.conf at /usr/share/samba/smb.conf

You could make some mistakes when installing the drivers. I packed them to PPA, it is easier to install.

EVERYONE applies to your network only. But for security reasons, I'd recommend keeping things you consider confidential in a safer area.

Everyone means everyone that is able to visit your system from walking up to the machine to anyone outside on the internet visiting a website you host, or ssh tunnel you set up to your system. Or abuse a backdoor in your router (Netgear, NMX300 1.5.0.11 as an example). The way to revoke it is by executing the same command with less privileges. In general ...

There is an excellent iptables flow diagram on @bodizazen's web site. Yes, packets travserse the iptables "chains" as per the diagram. However, one must keep in mind some special cases.

It looks like you are failing to set your username ssh USER@<ipaddress> If you don't declare a user name it use the current user.
