Q#1: I see many connections like when I use netstat, are they all to the internet? No not all connections listed in the output of netstat are to the internet. Many of these so-called connections are to files that are in use on your system. These are special files, one of which, is called a socket. A socket file allows an application to "talk" to ...

The version of modprobe in Ubuntu 12.04 (from module-init-tools version 3.16) does have a -l option, with description -l --list List all modules matching the given wildcard (or "*" if no wildcard is given). This option is provided for backwards compatibility and may go away in future: see find(1) and ...

This is as simple as it could be. You do not need any bridging. Just MASQUERADE your local network on RPi: iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o wlan0 -j MASQUERADE Enable forwarding of traffic: echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward RPi will not work as invisible bump-on-the-wire but will need a network setup between it and your private router – which ...

Your WiFi NIC can only support being connected to 1 access point (as far as I know), irregardless of how many antennas it has connected to it. So you'd need multiple WiFi NICs. If you did have multiple NICs then you could take a look at this U&L Q&A titled: Using multiple NICs for faster internet?, for what options you have in terms of using them ...

I think this could work: apt-get install --print-uris linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,') broadcom-sta-dkms That would print the ulr for the .deb files you need to download. You can download them on another computer and copy them through a USB drive. Later: dpkg -i downloadedfile.deb And so on...

This answer assumes that you can connect your machine to the network using a cable and so get internet access. If that assumption is wrong, let me know and I'll modify this. You need to install the driver for your wireless card. The driver support table of the Linux Wireless page lists it as supported so you should be able to get everything working by ...

I would confirm the steps that you used to compile the driver yourself. This driver is known not to work out of the box, and so compiling it from source appears to be your only option. This guide shows the steps, for Ubuntu, titled:Ubuntu Linux TL-WN725N TP-Link version 2 WiFi driver install. You can modify these steps as follows for Fedora. $ sudo yum ...

It's ugly, but... Get the MAC address of the embedded device. Power off the embedded device. Change the MAC address of a linux laptop to the MAC of the embedded device. Login to the portal via the linux laptop. Power off the linux laptop. Power on the embedded device. I've used this for my Roku device with a web-portal login. As always, YMMV.

You can either use runlevel 3 (Multi-user mode without graphical interface) or runlevel 2 (Multi-user modes without networking). In GRUB, press a to change the kernel commandline and add <space><runlevel> at the end of the boot options line to boot to the desired runlevel.

Idea #1 I'd start with trying to get the latest Broadcom drivers, which are available here: http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php Idea #2 Perhaps this blog post is your issue? Titled: Broadcom Wireless not working on Fedora 20 Kernel 3.15. It details 2 bugs that are detailed here: ...

You shouldn't use the same network address for wlan0 and eth0 (in your case 192.168.178.0/24), this will confuse your routing, and most likely network scripts too. If both interfaces are connected to the same network you should setup a network bond (Debian documentation here, example here) # apt-get install ifenslave then in /etc/network/interfaces auto ...

i see many connections like when I use netstat, are they all to the internet? That depends on the output, you have to tell IPv6 and IPv4 apart. In IPv4, the following adresses are so-called private: 10.x.x.x 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255 and are there any connections to the internet or other things that aren't ...

I just ran into the same problem immediately after installing RHEL 7.0. Bizarrely enough, a reboot with no config changes eliminated the problem. Somehow, when RHEL came up following the install, it's networking was apparently in a messed up state, and it needed another reboot to come up clean.

Solution Description After many months of having this issue with intermittent WiFi connections and sometimes losing connectivity for hours at a time, Bug 1108801 on the Red Hat / Fedora bug tracker seemed to hold the solution for me. As described in Comment #12 on that bug, Realtek (the manufacturer of my wireless card) has updated drivers for my ...
