It's a python script that has not been maintained for years and a recent python update has killed it and it won't be fixed

Manually editing /home/user/.fluxbox/menu is the only way now to get it done

^ That looks like the view I had driving north to Wyoming or south down to Colorado Springs on I-25 when I lived in Denver

Stunning vistas

Hi PackRat , VastOne
Thank you both for all your help in solving my problem with the internet. It is very much appreciated.
I still have another problem but I will try again to sort it out myself. Wish me luck and again thanks for all your assistance  :) :)

I may have just got in RatMan's way on the way to getting this solved..

Glad you got it sorted... Cheers

All right Gordon, let's get this solved..

First of all I used this page to siolve this

I had a wireless card that I inserted and ran into some of the same issues you were... Assuming you have both Ethernet and the wireless card still installed this is what you should run this first in terminal

Code: [Select]
iw dev
and it should show something similar to this (this is what mine shows) but with your wlp2s0

Code: [Select]
Interface wlan0
ifindex 3
wdev 0x1
addr 00:12:17:66:73:91
ssid VastOne
type managed
channel 6 (2437 MHz), width: 20 MHz (no HT), center1: 2437 MHz
txpower 20.00 dBm

Next (and as long as that is there) let's run this

Code: [Select]
sudo medit /etc/network/interfaces
and add this and save it

Code: [Select]
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug enp2s15
#iface enp2s15 inet dhcp

# The wifi network interface
allow-hotplug wlp2s0
iface wlp2s0 inet dhcp
        wpa-ssid SKY4

A couple of things about this ... this setup will not let your primary network load the enp2s15 as a network but we can still see it in ceni and with network commands, this is fine.. If you ever need to go back to the ethernet, just pop back on here and I will show you how

If you have this setup just like this and you have the correct password added, you should be able to reboot into your wifi setup

I am setup and connected now on wifi doing what I just laid out for you...

let me know how it goes

Based on that information, we should be able to get you going but we will need to know the wifi access information...

When your grandkids come over, do they or did they ever have to get wifi password from you or is it setup that anyone in your house can get free wifi?

To get the name of your wifi access point should be easy with a cell phone.. Just go into the Network / wifi settings on the phone and select wifi and it should show you the wifi network that you all connect to.. that is the name we need

First run ceni and post post a screenshot or diagram of what is there, then unplug the ethernet cable post the screenshot of what you see?

Gordon, can you please put the wifi card in and do an lspci, capture the information and then get back connected and send the info?

Gordon, do you mean your modem is provided by SKY? 

My setup:

Computer --> My Router (handles all wifi) --> My Internet Service Provider (Spectrum) Modem --> Internet

In that scenario and just like you, the only thing I can do with the Spectrum / Sky modem is turn it off or on

Now one thing I cannot get clear.. Why is it that you cannot have both the wifi card and ethernet together on the same pc at the same time?  There shouldn't be a network conflict with either until both were configured but from a hardware setup they should be able to both be installed until that setup

Is it that each require the same slot in the computer? If that is not the case, there should be no reason why both cannot be installed at the same time

Now that you have confirmed that we you have wifi setup on other phones and tablets, we should be able to get you going using even ceni now .. We are going to need the settings for wifi connectivity from one of those devices , the name of the wifi and it's password to connect to it

Now we need that card installed so that ceni can see it and you connected to the internet and access to VSIDO from another device so we can walk you through it ..

^ this; good question.

Gordon, I am assuming you have a physical router in your home and are set up something like:

Computer ---> Router ---> Modem ---> Internet.

Someone with a similar issue did not actually have the hardware, his isp only allowed the modem and controlled the rest.

This is why in my area we tell the ISP's to shut the wifi completely down on their modems and we handle the wifi with our routers, because theirs are known disasters

I am concerned that lspci is not showing this card.. and if it is not I am further concerned that it is a firmware issue... to be clear also, ceni has changed in such a way that it appears not to see anything but it is completely different now. Below is a screenshot of what you see now. Notice how it says No Value under Hardware Interfaces? But I can go to the logical interface of eth0 and select it there and ceni works as it always has giving the options to reconfigure it

Quick question Gordon.. Is there anything in this place already connecting to a wifi setup? A phone or tablet or laptop perhaps?

General Support / Re: wifi card

Wait... So lspci is no longer showing the wlp1s0 card?

ceni should be showing it on the bottom right half no matter what

And so you know, whatever has changed in ceni, that no longer shows anything in the top portion, is what I was referring to earlier.. the only way you can configure now from ceni is selecting what is in the bottom right portion.. But if it is not even there, it is impossible

I am concerned that with the right firmware installed and correct kernel why this is not showing in ceni

Also you most likely will not see both working at the same time.. You must have either or connected and not both at the same time, Debian is not smart enough to arc both together as one without special commands

Post the contents of file /etc/network/interface please

Also, what does ceni show?  I know it may seem as if ceni is not showing a way to configure it, but when you run ceni it should show your two cards on the right hand lower side of the app.. If you select wlp2s0 and hit enter you should be able to modify it as long as you have the wifi information needed

Are you able to install wicd now and use it to configure since you have used it before?

We need to make sure firmware-iwlwifi is installed : Run this

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi

If it is then check out this page for more detail and info

Get back with us if you need a hand with installing from a tar file
