Thumbs down switched to U-verse, looks like home web server days are done...


DOes anyone have U-verse and have linux behind it?
When I had Time Warner and a router of my choice, I was able to config it how i pleased and used DYNDNS to point the world to my server.

Enter U-verse. Now I have a new router I was forced to take with limited controls and my Debian 5 machine can't even connect to the internet, let alone host a website.

Anyone else had to deal with U-verse and was still able to host a home website?

Hi mtlhd, Welcome to LQ. Assuming it's a modem/router combo from AT & T, you should be able to put it into Bridge mode and use whatever router you like.

Good luck. ;-)

found solution!

Well I figured out how to make Uverse and Linux talk.
The simplicity of it angers me now as I never thought of it until talking with my networker friend.

the 2wire 3800HGV and Linux do not communicate at all.
In fact, the 2 wire sees linux but always sees it as off.

Solution:

Throw a switch between the linux server and the 2 wire router and it will work.
The switch acts as a linux interpreter if you will.

so back in business.

Linux triumphs

I'd like to say ... Huh?

I was going to simply say Huh but that was too short.


I'd guess you have the wrong cord type or the auto negotiate wasn't exactly matched up.

that will work but is not necessary because the 2wire can support both wired and wireless networking....You have to access the 2wire config and make a few changes and it will work...

craziness

I never went to school for any networking so it was a nightmare for me, but i seriously tried everything I could find int he menus for the 2wire, and that switch is the only thing that made it work.
Just don't get it.
Upon finally talking to AT&T, they admitted their router almost never communicates with linux.

"talking to AT&T, they admitted their router almost never communicates with linux."

I know that is the kind of stuff they say. Why help a customer when you can say silly stuff?

I admit that I have not seen your system. From what you said you merely installed a simple hub or switch between the linux box and your modem. To me that has almost nothing to do with linux.

Sorry they gave you so much trouble. I know people here try to help and in most cases are really nice about it. If you need help in the future, give the folks here a shout. I know a bit but there are plenty of minds here that could guess better than AT&T.

I had to spend a year to get ATT to fix their line. They suck at fixing two wires. Might be one too many for them.

NIC card?

A friend of mine told me it is possibly the NIC card I have in my Linux box that the 2wire didn't like, which sounds more correct to me.
