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.
When I connect a network cable from my laptop to the router, the router does not detect this connection. The LED for the port (on the router) does not turn on. However, with the same cable and router, when I connect my other laptop, the wired connection works. The wireless connection works successfully for both laptops.
