Network Connection via Ubuntu OS

CONNECT TO A WIRELESS NETWORK

If you have a wireless hardware switch on your computer,
make sure that it is turned on.

Instruction:

  1. Click the network menu in the menu bar, and click the name of the network you want to connect to.

  2. If the network is protected by a password (encryption key), enter the password when prompted and click Connect.
    If you do not know the key, it may be written on the underside of the wireless router or base station, in its instruction manual, or you may have to ask the person who administers the wireless network.

  3. The network icon will change appearance as the computer attempts to connect to the network.

  4. If the connection is successful, the icon will change to a dot with several bars above it. More bars indicate a stronger connection to the network. If there aren't many bars, the connection is weak and might not be very reliable.

CONNECT TO A HIDDEN WIRELESS NETWORK

Instruction:

  1. Click the network menu on the menu bar and select Connect to Hidden Wireless Network.

  2. In the window that appears, type the network name, choose the type of wireless security, and click Connect.

CREATE A WIRELESS HOTSPOT

Instruction:

  1. Click the icon at the very right of the menu bar and select System Settings.

  2. Open Network and select Wireless on the left.

  3. Click the Use as Hotspot button.

  4. If you are already connected to a wireless network, you will be asked if you want to disconnect from that network.
    A single wireless adapter can only connect to or create one network at a time. Click Create Hotspot to confirm.

HOW TO MANUALLY SET YOUR NETWORK SETTINGS

Instruction:

  1. Click the network menu on the menu bar and click Edit Connections.

  2. Select the network connection that you want to set up manually. For example, if you plug in to the network with a cable, look at the Wired tab.

  3. Click the connection you want to edit to select it, then click Edit.

  4. Go to the IPv4 Settings tab and change the Method to Manual.

  5. Click Add and type the IP address, network mask and default gateway IP address into the corresponding columns of theAddresses list. Press Enter or Tab after typing each address.
    These three addresses must be IP addresses; that is, they must be four numbers separated by periods

  6. Type the IP addresses of the DNS servers you want to use, separated by commas.

  7. Click Save. If you are not connected to the network, click the network icon on the menu bar and connect.

TURN OFF WIRELESS (AIRPLANE MODE)

Instruction:

  1. Click the network menu on the menu bar and uncheck.

  2. Enable Wireless. This will turn off your wireless connection until you switch it back on again.

  3. To turn wireless back on. Click the network menu on the menu bar and select Enable Wireless so that it has a checkmark in front of it

WIRELESS NETWORK TROUBLESHOOTER

Note:
This is a step-by step troubleshooting guide to help you identify and fix wireless problems. If you cannot connect to a wireless network for some reason, try following the instructions here. We will proceed through the following steps to get your computer connected to the internet.

  • Performing an initial check.

  • Gathering information about your hardware.

  • Checking your hardware

  • Attempting to create a connection to your wireless router.

  • Performing a check of your modem and router.

HOW TO BROWSE FILES ON A SERVER OR NETWORK SHARE

Note:
You can connect to a server or network share to browse and view files on that server, exactly as if they were on your own computer. This is a convenient way to download or upload files on the internet, or to share files with other people on your local network.

To browse files over the network, open the file manager. Then, click Browse Network in the sidebar, or select Network from the Gomenu. The file manager will find any computers on your local area network that advertise their ability to serve files. If you want to connect to a server on the internet, or if you do not see the computer you're looking for, you can manually connect to a server by typing in its internet/network address.

CONNECT TO A FILE SERVER

Instruction:

  1. In the file manager, click File > Connect to Server

  2. Enter the server address, select the type of server, and enter any additional information as required. Then click Connect. Details on server types are listed below.
    For servers on the internet, you can usually use the domain name (e.g. ftp.example.com). For computers on your local network, however, you may have to use the computer's numeric IP address.

  3. A new window will open showing you the files on the server. You can browse the files just as you would for those on your own computer.
    The server will also be added to the sidebar so you can access it quickly in the future.

  5. You can now print a test page or click Cancel to skip that step.
    If there are multiple drivers available for your computer, you may be asked to select a driver.
    To use the recommended driver, just click Forward on the make and model screens.

SET THE DEFAULT PRINTER

Instruction:

  1. Click the system menu at the far right of the menu bar and and select Printers.
