Does this modem support Linux?

I just bought a new laptop that's running a Linux OS, and I'm having problems establishing an wireless connection with this modem. It detects the connection, but when the WPA or WEP keys are entered, the connection is still not established. Does this modem even support Linux?

    What's the name of the Linux are you running? If you can't find the name then tell me what the screen looks like.

If your linux is detecting the modem then it is supported in linux so now its just a matter of working out the communication details. Make sure the connection your trying to connect to is using WPA or WEP because they are two different types of protocols. I suggest WPA because it's a lot more secure. WEP can be cracked in 5 minutes. You may have to play around with the settings a little. If you don't know how to then write back and tell me what the name of your linux is and what protocol you want to use and I can help troubleshoot the problem. It could be that the connection is taking a long time and that you have the timeout set too short.

Cannot access the internet


I have looked at and reviewed your problem with your HP laptop DV6700Z and have the fallowing for you to aces.
First, if you are trying to access the internet via wireless, wait until you have established and wired connection.
If the blue light comes on in the front panel, the wireless is working, if not, you have a problem with the wireless modem.
Run a wire from your laptop to your modem and enter your my network, choose setup a internet connection.
Try to make a internet connection. Once you have established a connection, you can setup your wireless connection.
Hope this has helped you.

Use Crossloop. Each session is encrypted and doesn't require turning off firewalls in your routers. You will have to give it permission to run in Vista and XP, but it works and I've used it many times.

If this is what you're already using, go to their help page to resolve the problem.

Hope this helps.

I bought my daughter a laptop (elonex onet) but i dont no how to put internet on it thanks ceri


You have this in the Mac Laptops category, but it's not a Mac. This laptop is running Linux.

The Elonex ONEt has wireless Internet connectivity. That means you can use a wireless router in your home in order to use it online. If you already have one, the system should be able to set itself up to use that connection on its own when you open a web browser. The web browser on your system is BonEcho/Firefox.

Another option is to run a Cat5e, also called an Ethernet cable, line from a router (or from your cable modem or DSL modem) directly to the laptop, since your laptop also has an ethernet port. This looks like a regular phone jack, but it's a little bigger.

Best of luck!

THE internet is coming up internet explorer can not be connected, when it's wireless. we can plug it in and then the internet comes up.


you have to configure your wireless modem (wep/wpa) so that your laptop can connect to the internet. the reason why you cannot connect in the internet thru wireless is that the connection between the modem and the laptop has not been established. so, try to establish the connection between your laptop and the modem.
