Hardware / Re: USB Bluetooth adapter
« on: November 17, 2014, 02:45:58 pm »
Ok, strike my last comment as I played with and found my pairing settings.  The device manager sees the speakers and they begin to link but the link fails and no connection is made.  On my speakers it says there was a connection with the 'friendly name' ID but then resets to 'ready mode'. 

Sorry for all this :(

I spent most of yesterday researching getting my bluetooth adapter working so I could get my speakers working and not use headphones(bluetooth speakers).  I have Bluez (I think that came with 5) and looking under bluetooth manager nothing comes up.  I believe my problem is it is not in hci mode but reading and trying to figure out what commands I need to do elude me.

This is what I have

Networking / Loss of wireless internet.
« on: November 17, 2014, 12:10:13 pm »
A couple of days ago I needed help wtih my wireless adaptor,1238.0.html.  That works great, but the problem now is I am randomly disconnected from the internet.  Usually its while downloading or streaming, moving a lot of data.  When this happens and I do nothing the icon stating a wifi connection still gives bars and indicates nothing is wrong, but going any where WWW or even to check my status to my router on the network, i have zero access(all my other devices connected to internet work fine).  Fixing it requires unplugging the adapter and plugging it back in and after a few moments internet springs back to life.

I dont know what information you need to begin helping me, if thats possible for this situation, but I'll try to be quick with my responses. 

Thanks for reading


This is the router I have

« on: November 16, 2014, 02:10:14 am »
Hello, today hdd folded on me and having nothing but upgrade disks for windows, I've switched to Peppermint on main pc (have Peppermint on my laptop atm).  Having to get everything downloaded what I need makes my head hurt and now coming to the Netgear dongle I'm afraid I'm out of gas reading about the problems of Netgear :( .  I'm wired in at the moment but that situation needs to change and need help please.  Here is some info I think is the basics to get started for help.

Yep, was just waiting for your last reply before I did that, Thank you, and I'll have more questions later I'm sure :)

Hooray! It worked, thank you so much :).  Quick question though, this means I can only use the "Public" folder to write to or will this also open up all areas?

Ok I added the line at the bottom of the [global] section, first done with # and with out #.  I'm guessing that you wanted it with out # infront or you would have added it for me to do.  I also tried to write in each instance incase you wanted me to try that next but nothing changed on that end.  Here is what my [global] area looks like.

Code: [Select]

## Browsing/Identification ###

# Change this to the workgroup/NT-domain name your Samba server will part of
workgroup = WORKGROUP

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)

# Windows Internet Name Serving Support Section:
# WINS Support - Tells the NMBD component of Samba to enable its WINS Server
#   wins support = no

# WINS Server - Tells the NMBD components of Samba to be a WINS Client
# Note: Samba can be either a WINS Server, or a WINS Client, but NOT both
;   wins server = w.x.y.z

# This will prevent nmbd to search for NetBIOS names through DNS.
dns proxy = no

# What naming service and in what order should we use to resolve host names
# to IP addresses
;   name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast

workgroup = WORKGROUP

Thank you for all the time you are putting in to my problem.

The PC is under WORKGROUP.  I looked under the Samba Server settings also for "Basic" and it too says workgroup but lowercase, I changed to uppercase how it says with windows PC but it did nothing plus just changed it back to all lower case. 

Removed all shared folders etc and rebooted, shared only the Public folder, same thing, unable to write with out permission.    :-\

I've shared the whole  drive along with making it read/write permissible.   

Ok,  I got "Public" folder also setup along with permissions read/write, no password etc, and unable to write still.

Great, thank you PCNet :).  After playing with it and figuring what I can and cannot do my only thing left is;  From my Windows PC to Peppermint Laptop I can pretty much do anything but Copy a file from the PC and Paste it on to the Laptop and the error it brings up is "You need permission to do this action".  I've played with the Samba Users config to get something going but every time I've left it to only certain users can have access from the network I can no longer get access so I've had "Allow access to everyone" on which I am fine with just can't do the above with it.

Thank you again for your help.

Hello all, I've had Peppermint for a little over two months. Two weeks ago I finally figured out how to get my WIFI working, and yesterday I got BOINC up and running   :D.  Next project is stated above, What do I need(if there is a way) to have Windows and Peppermint see each other on the network. 

Thanks for reading
