Your question is stated in a rather chaotic way, but this is what I understand: You're talking about enabling your wireless network adapter using a command that requires root privileges (hence run using sudo). The command you're executing actually removes a module (see man modprobe under the -r option). It was probably suggested that you remove the ...

I'm using Linux Mint 17.1 and followed this guide which was working for me. What I did in a nutshell.. Started the Network Connections1 app: Added a new Wi-Fi network connection: Entered the following credentials: I think that was it. 1 Note: Make sure you open "Network Connections" instead of "Network"

Type sudo apt-get install iw , iw is a utility that can manipulate wireless devices and their configurations. After installing it type iw list , it will print a list, under Supported interface modes : if you see AP, then it means it supports. For finding that faster you can type iw list | grep AP

It seems you need to chomp the $interface.

If you're using NetworkManager (and you very likely are): nmcli radio wifi off. This is simply a command line interface equivalent of the widget. NetworkManager is a complicated beast. I'm not sure what the basic commands are that it's using.

You have to switch from Managed mode to Roaming mode. It consist of defining your WiFi networks in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf and using logical interfaces in /etc/network/interfaces. To adapt the example from /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/README.Debian.gz (which is a good read), write something like network={ ssid="ATUX_wifi" ...

Just installed LinuxMint 17.2 on a Dell Latitude E5520, and above instructions were found correct for connecting to eduroam (Erasmus University Rotterdam); Make sure you open "Network Connections" instead of "Network"; Also, after adding the "eduroam" Wifi network, on the Wireless networking page a "Preferences" button appears next to the eduroam network.

Bonding was exactly what I needed, so I adapted this answer. I can backup both interfaces and designate the ethernet interface as the primary one. In fact I didn't want a different address for each interface. I thought I had to do it with different ones but the solution with only one address and automatic backup is exactly what I wanted. (I also tested with ...

I would use device bonding, meaning you are creating a new virtual device for which you assign the network settings (e.g. IP address, mask, etc.) and then you enslave both the ethernet and wifi interfaces to that interface. Something like: $ sudo modprobe bonding $ sudo ifconfig bond0 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.0.0 $ sudo ifenslave bond0 eth0 wlan0 ...

Apparently these networks with web-based auth rely on MAC based access control post-authentication, so you can simply authenticate on a different device while spoofing your Pi's MAC address, and then your Pi should be able to get on the network.
