2014-03-29 06:19:10 -0600 asked a question How to create bridge - 3G Internet and Ethernet Port (LAN) on a PC ?

hi folks

here is my setup - I have a 4-port switch in the attic

I have a 3G internet dongle attached via USB to a PC lets call the PC "PC-net" the 3G internet dongle assigns itself as a gateway using a gateway IP address of 192.168.1.1 - on PC-net.

i went into the network conections option in windows 7 this is what i do

I create the bridge by highlighting the 3G dongle connection and PC-net’s ethernet connection together and right click and choose “create bridge” when the bridge is created I statically assign the bridge an IP address of 192.168.1.121 - so now PC-net has that address and when i connect the ethernet cable from PC-net into the 4-port switch i have 2 way flow (in/out) of internet through the ethernet ( lan ) port of PC-net

so that when connected to the switch via ethernet cable PC-net effectivelty shares its internet with all other PC’s connected to the switch - i can assign these other pcs static ip addresses - so theyre ok

preconditions - 1. i dont want to nor am i willing to buy a 3G router as i know its unnecessary and expensive 2. i want to be able to assign the client PCs their IP addresses manually in the range 192.168.1.125 to
192.168.1.128

how do I achieve this in linux (Fedora in my case) - if i install fedora (or other linux) on PC-net - how do i achieve the above windows equivalent setup on linux - can i do it using GUI or do I need to use those scary iptables commands ? thanks

2014-01-30 18:39:24 -0600 asked a question Xorg Logs show misdetection of my DVB USB tuner device as a Keyboard - How to Resolve ?

Fedora 20 / Gnome Destop / 64 bit / Kworld 395U DVB-T Tuner

While searching the Xorg logs for a problem to do with Fedora front screen not responding to keyboard after PC being unattended for an hour - mouse moved OK but keyboard (ESC) will not respond to take me to password entrry screen …… and whiule browsing logs to debug it I found a more concerning 2nd problem - so one problem at a time …….

Background : I have been having erratic behaviour with my USB - DVB-T device - it would sometimes become unrecognised by the system after a period of say couple hours ie failed to initialize errors in dmesg | grep DVB and so on

While browsing the Xorg Logs i found this below - Should I be concerned with the fact that the DVB tuner it reports as a keyboard in the logs - I reckon i should be ?? see below

$ cat Xorg.0.log | grep 395
[    33.464] (II) config/udev: Adding input device KWorld USB DVB-T TV Stick II (VS-DVB-T 395U) (/dev/input/event5)

[    33.464] (**) evdev: KWorld USB DVB-T TV Stick II (VS-DVB-T 395U): Device: "/dev/input/event5"
[    33.464] (--) evdev: KWorld USB DVB-T TV Stick II (VS-DVB-T 395U): Vendor 0x1b80 Product 0xe39b
[    33.464] (--) evdev: KWorld USB DVB-T TV Stick II (VS-DVB-T 395U): Found keys
[    33.464] (II) evdev: KWorld USB DVB-T TV Stick II (VS-DVB-T 395U): Configuring as keyboard
[    33.464] (II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "KWorld USB DVB-T TV Stick II (VS-DVB-T 395U)" **(type: KEYBOARD, id 10)**

by the way tuner still works mostly - but it can uninstall detach itself from the system occasionally (not physically ) but from an OS / driver point of view

What can i do to fix this mis detection of my device ? thank you all Don
