I'm a new linux user and I've installed a dual boot with fedora 20 and windows 8 on my laptop. So far, however, I have not been able to establish a wireless internet connection, and I have no idea how to start. Windows 8 had a network and connections manager that would allow me to setup a new connection, but i can't seem to do the same thing in fedora.
have a DSL modem setup with 192.168.1.1 local IP. Everything working fine. Then have a linksys wireless router that I have connected to the DSL modem. I have enabled DHCP on the wireless router, and have assigned 192.168.107.1 IP address to this router, with 255.255.255.0 as the mask.
I have a question. I just bought an internet router which also has wireless connection and my notebook also has wireless LAN. I was able to connect the computer to the internet router very easy. But i dont know how to make it work wirelesss under fedora linux 12...i mean how should i setup the connection to the router so i will be able to have a wireless connection?
I have a weird problem. My Internet connection just seems to die after a few minutesof operation. If I reboot the desktop, or the wireless router or even just disconnect and reconnect the wireless network it seems to reset and internet works again for a while.
I know this is not an Ubuntu problem as it also happened under Windows XP.
I've observed this recently with my wireless/hardware configuration. Has anyone else encountered a similar issue?
When I shutdown my laptop, the other wireless devices connected to the same router have a moment (5 seconds) of unable to connect. Everything returns in a few seconds. Router logs don't appear to indicate a failure.
