Re: Unable to access factory-reset wired router

Ok. I'll have to save the data off somewhere because I won't be able to access email, then try to set things back to where I have them now so I can access this forum again.

Re: Unable to access factory-reset wired router

I'm not at home at the moment, so won't be able to do this until this evening.

Do you want this data as my router is now, when it is essentially just in "pass through" mode to the modem, or after a router reset? (Or does it matter?)

Re: Unable to access factory-reset wired router

The field for DHCP Client Id is empty. Yes to your question on MAC address. They match.

Re: Unable to access factory-reset wired router

I tried: http://www.routerlogin.com http://www.routerlogin.net http://192.168.1.1 http://192.168.0.1 http://10.0.0.1 In all cases I get "This webpage is not available." I think the issue is with how the connectivity is defined in the Connection Editor. The only way I can get any internet connectivit...

Re: Unable to access factory-reset wired router

I actually turned the machine totally off and then on again. What is the wired entry supposed to look like? (or any other entries that I am supposed to have.) Do I have to change something in the network manager, or is it supposed to be refreshed with good information after a router reset and reboot?

Unable to access factory-reset wired router

I have a Netgear wnr2000v4 router, directly connected to the computer, which I seem to have messed up. So, I did a factory reset and all the lights on the panel seem to be fine. The problem is that I can't seem to connect to it. I also have no internet access. Is there something I am supposed to do ...

Re: sh files only execute in terminal

Actually I'm using KDE. I don't know what its default file manager is. Personally, I generally use Konqueror or perhaps sometimes Dolphin (until I figured out how to change the default.)

KDE file managers don't run shell scripts on double click

Am running Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela and seem to have screwed up something along the way. I have a studio.sh file in directory android-studio which is used for launching the android-studio development environment. I swear that it used to work as a desktop shortcut or from the menu, but I must have don...

Re: VirtualBox USB & copy/past from Windows not working

Ok, folks thanks for the help, but I think I'm giving up on this. I've tried several versions of VB and none of them let me install either an extension pack or guest additions. Everything seems to work except for being able to copy text from Linux to Windows. (I also can't access my office computers...

Re: VirtualBox USB & copy/past from Windows not working

This seems to have eaten my reply, so let me try again. Just got back into town and did get 4.3.30 installed, but can't find any way to install the extension pack. (Is that the same as Guest Additions?) I can go to the VM manager, and it shows under Preferences/Extensions an older extension pack, 5....

Re: VirtualBox USB & copy/past from Windows not working

Thanks for the response.

You say to get a Debian version. Is that Debian 7 or Debian 6?

After downloading, what is the instruction to install? (I'm used to rpm distributions.) Does one do an apt-get install and then somehow point to where it was downloaded?

Re: VirtualBox USB & copy/past from Windows not working

Well, the Synaptic Package Manager says I have virtualbox-nonfree 5.0 installed as well as virtualbox-5.0 (5.0.2.102096-Ubuntu-trusty) installed. I hadn't noticed before, but the virtualbox-guest-additions-iso that is in the package manager is a 4.3.10-1, so that is why it would want to uninstall th...

Re: VirtualBox USB & copy/past from Windows not working

Ok, a few reboots of Windows and shutting down and bringing up VirtualBox seems to have fixed the USB issue. I think Windows may have been trying to do updates while I was doing all this, so that may have muddled the waters. So, USB seems to be ok now. However, I still can't copy/paste between Windo...

VirtualBox USB & copy/past from Windows not working

I installed the VirtualBox that was in the repository. Do I instead need to install from Oracle, and if so, for which distribution? I am running Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela. I not only can't access USB devices from within VirtualBox Windows7, but I can't cut/paste between Windows and Linux. I had no tro...
