Installation issues / Help Please!!
« on: March 06, 2008, 01:49:10 pm »
I really need some help,

I cannot get linuxmce to access my network (KDE can when linuxmce is closed), no matter what i do it will not connect when i boot, i can enter KDE and close linuxmce altogether the use "iwconfig eth1 essid "TP-LINK" key **********" and "sudo dhclient eth1" to connect to the network but when linuxmce is running and i do the same it will work for 2 seconds and then revert to broken.

My interface file looks like this

auto lo
   iface lo inet loopback
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

eth0 is the ethernet, eth1 is the wireless

i just can't figure this out,

Thanks for helping.

I am part way through figuring this out, I had my wireless router as my external interface and my 10/100 as my internal. i have a wireless router i use as my DHCP server that my 4 windows machine attach to it. how can i set linuxmce to just access the router and beome part of the network, i don't want it to take control and become dhcp. i just want it to connect to the wireless router automatically, without having to type "sudo -s" "iwconfig eth1 essid "TP-LINK" key **********" and sudo dhclient eth1 in kde every time i boot.

I really do appreciate the help

Hi Guys,

I know this is weird but i'm having the opposite trouble of a lot of people, i can access the internet over my wireless router but i cannot actually ping the router or any computer on my network. i have a speedstream adsl modem plugged into a tp-link wireless router. i can ping the adsl modem but not the router??? any thoughts on how i can access the network, i would like to access my media server.

I am running linuxmce 0710 Beta 3 on a HP NC8000 laptop

Thanks :)

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to Linux and have switched to linuxmce when my NC8000 laptop stopped recognizing any windows OS at all. Anyway I have got everything set up at the moment including Wireless network. My only problem at the moment is:

How do i get S-video as my primary video as this is my htpc, i want to turn off the screen and use tv-out as primary.

It has a ATI mobility 9600 pro working with the stock drivers

Fn + F4 does not work to switch screens.

Thanks in advance :)
