View Full Version : [SOLVED] 9.10 WEP encrypted WIFI autoconnecting not working

Am a first time Linux user, Ubuntu 9.10 for the past 3 days. First of all, must say I'm very impressed with everything - despite the fact that it takes quite a bit of effort to get it to work on my laptop (P3, 1GHz, 512MB RAM, 30 GB HDD). Did previously run Win2000.

I have managed to get most things working, with a lot of reading in these forums. However, the final thing that I can't get to work is WIFI with WEP using the PCMCIA card (ACX111 chip, using ndiswrapper).

WIFI works fine on open connections, just not on WEP (I have tried out different networks, none with WEP encryption work: (40-bit) encrypted WEP, Ubuntu doesn't automatically establish a connection with my router when I turn on the laptop: it is attempting to connect (rotating 'thingy' in the NM applet at the top right of the screen), but it always times out and gives up, despite having set the proper key in the connection settings of networkmanager.

The *only* way I can establish WIFI/WEP connection is when (when network manager is attempting to connect), at the same time I open a terminal and type

sudo iwconfig wlan0 key "1234567890"

Only if I give this command (but with the proper key, of course) in terminal does it establish connection - and remains working, until suspending or turning off the laptop; then, the command has to be re-issued again in a terminal as network manager is again attempting to establish connection.

I've searched a lot on the web and tried out a lot, but can't find a solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I did try WICD but didn't get it working with that too; now am back to NetworkManager.

Even a way to automate the command ('sudo iwconfig wlan0 key "5555555555") would be appreciated, if that could work; I tried writing a script but was unsuccesful (I blame my lack of knowledge on scripting and where/how to insert the file)

Edit: I just notice in the log this strange thing:
[ 30.554404] wlan0: encryption modes supported: none

Yet, WEP works, as long as I give a 'sudo iwconfig wlan0 key "1234567890".....

When you right-click the Network Manager icon and select Edit Connections and then select your wireless network and click Edit, is Connect automatically selected? Is your WEP key filled in? Is Authentication Mode shown as Restricted? Please see attached.

Thanks for the speedy response.

When you right-click the Network Manager icon and select Edit Connections and then select your wireless network and click Edit, is Connect automatically selected?

Yes, auto-connect is selected; and the network is shown as 'auto Sitecom'. However.... it also says, in the final column, 'last used 2 hours ago', when I'm actually using that network exactly at this very moment. Strange.

Is your WEP key filled in?

Yes, the exact same WEP key as used in 'sudo iwconfig wlan0 key "1234567890" ' is filled in in the Network Connections menu.

Yet Network manager only connects when I do a 'sudo iwconfig wlan0 key "1234567890" - even though it already has the proper key in its network connections preferences.


Is Authentication Mode shown as Restricted?

Authentication is "Open System", just as it used to be under Win2000 (where I used the exact same hardware - router, laptop and WIFI card).

Peter.

How are these consistent?

I'm scratching my head here.... it has always been set to '5555555555', without the dashes; the dashes was just something I tried out as I had read about it on this forum as a possible solution (it wasn't, for me).

But now I see that it's still there... even though I changed it back to 5555555555, using both Network manager and in terminal, using 'sudo iwconfig wlan0 key "5555555555". strange - the dashes are still there when I do 'sudo iwconfig' now, even though I've again tried to change it back to a key without dashes.

The restricted mode is strange too - I just checked in Network manager and its definitely set as 'open system'.

Scratching my head here - I'm hoping anyone knows what's going on, because I don't.....

iwconfig always inserts the dashes just so it's easily readable. That may safely be ignored. 'Restricted' is still a mystery. What do the settings in your router say?

'Restricted' is still a mystery. What do the settings in your router say?

I think that 'authentication', being either 'open system' or 'shared key', has nothing to do (at least, as I understand it) with the 'restricted' security mode; I googled the terms and came up with this thread:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1402181

where it's remarked:

***The security mode may be open or restricted, and its meaning depends on the card used. With most cards, in open mode no authentication is used and the card may also accept non-encrypted sessions, whereas in restricted mode only encrypted sessions are accepted and the card will use authentication if available.

Either way, the router is adjusted as it has always been in the past, I haven't changed anything about that - it's still WEP, open system, 40-bit WEP key. Another laptop with WEP/open settings connects to it fine. And my laptop running Ubuntu connects to it too - as long as I give that 'sudo iwconfig wlan0 key "5555555555" command in terminal....

You remarked in that thread: In a system with Network Manager running, manual configuration almost never works. The system wants just one pair of hands on the steering wheel: NM!

Is there a way to bypass NM entirely? I just checked and it said I last used the Sitecom connection 4 hours ago.... but it's working at this very moment. Something is fishy here. If there's a way to control the WIFI PCMCIA card from terminal, making a script that starts at bootup, that'd be more than fine for me. As long as I don't have to go back to terminal every time to manually enter the WEP key again....

Extra information I just noticed: in Seahorse, when I check for passwords and encryption keys, there is no key under 'passwords: default'. There should be a key for the WIFI internet connection there (802-something, IIRC), at least, I've seen one there in the past (not that it mattered, WEP still didn't work even with a key there).

and... I just tried this command: sudo ifconfig wlan0 down

but the NM applet still shows that I'm connected (with occasional varying signal strength even), yet when I try to browse a website (say, wikipedia) it doesn't work. Strange - it seems that, somehow, NM is bypassed on my system. It sits there, but isn't really in control.

Having the exact same problem. I have a clean install and network manager sees all the networks in the area, just won't let me log in to the router using WEP. Would prefer to not have to do a command line everytime I boot.

Thanks for any incoming help.

The security mode may be open or restricted, and its meaning depends on the card used.In my systems, using a variety of cards, with and without NM, with and without Wicd and with and without ndiswrapper, if I set 'restricted' in the router, I could never connect without also specifying so on the computer. If you have never used it, I am quite mystified as to why iwconfig would show it.
Is there a way to bypass NM entirely?Why certainly. NM and Wicd can be configured to work correctly and connect automatically; I know because I have two laptops (can a man really have too many computers?) and one uses NM and the other Wicd. For the moment, I am using 128-bit WEP.

However, if you prefer, you may completely remove NM through Synaptic and simply set up /etc/network/interfaces. Here is a perfectly working sample:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wireless-essid mylilrouter
wireless-key 096Cmywepkey4AFE

#auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcpThen reboot and enjoy.

wendt
February 24th, 2010, 10:45 PM
Just tried the command line insertion of the WEP key and no joy. It tells me that "nm-connection-editor" is involved. Ignores it. Is there a command line that will force whatever program that connects to the WiFi to renegotiate after I've put in the correct WEP key? Do I now have to enter <two> terminal commands everytime I boot up and connect?

This is a problem.

Bill

Alfred_Jodocus
February 24th, 2010, 11:01 PM
IT WORKED!

I removed NM (Network Manager), edited the interfaces file with

sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

and added the lines (as applicable):

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wireless-essid mylilrouter
wireless-key 096Cmywepkey4AFE

#auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

made the changes as you showed in your reply - rebooted - and it worked! It automatically connected to the router after booting!

You can't begin to image how grateful I am to you. Thank you *very* much.


I think I've spent about 20-25 hours trying to get it working myself - and about two hours after asking the question here the problem got solved.

If you were a pretty girl, I'd kiss you on both cheeks! :D

Edit: only pity that there's no signal-strength indicator in the top-right anymore. Ah well - nothing a 'sudo iwconfig wlan0' wouldn't tell anyway....

If you were a pretty girl, I'd kiss you on both cheeks!I'm a grizzled old man and my cheeks are covered in unruly white whiskers, but I appreciate the thought! I'm glad it's working.

If you click your panel and select 'Add to panel' you can add 'Network Monitor.' When I right-click it and select 'Properties,' I see "Signal Strength 90%." I hope that is helpful.
