Unhappy My Kindle Network does not work.

Hi.

I got at brand new Kindle 4. So far I installed the jailbreak, the kindlet jailbreak, the developer keys, KUAL and usbnetworking.

The latter thing does not work. My kindle seems to refuse any kind of network from outside.

I followed the usbnetwork instructions. On my host the lsusb displays
Code:
Bus 001 Device 052: ID 0525:a4a2 Netchip Technology, Inc. Linux-USB Ethernet/RNDIS Gadget
and the usbnetworkd status in the KUAL menu is enabled.

I do configure the networkinface with like

Code:
# ifconfig usb0 192.168.15.201
# ifconfig usb0
usb0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr ee:49:00:00:00:00  
          inet addr:192.168.15.201  Bcast:192.168.15.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
But I can't ping the Kindle.

Code:
# ping 192.168.15.244
PING 192.168.15.244 (192.168.15.244) 56(84) bytes of data.
From 192.168.15.201 icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
From 192.168.15.201 icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
From 192.168.15.201 icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable
^C
--- 192.168.15.244 ping statistics ---
4 packets transmitted, 0 received, +3 errors, 100% packet loss, time 3000ms
pipe 4
# ssh 192.168.15.244
ssh: connect to host 192.168.15.244 port 22: No route to host



Same thing goes for the Wifi connection. I added my ssh public key to usbnet/etc/authorized_keys and enabled ssh over wifi via KULA. Pinging or sshing to the wifi ip address of the kindle does lead to the same results.

In the "I configured ... "
You only set the interface address without specifying any routing.
Which is just fine, if your PC is already routing that interface network.

From the last message of: "connect to host 192.168.15.244 port 22: No route to host"
It is fairly obvious that your PC **is not** already routing that interface network.

Please post the output of:
ip route show

You should probably also confirm that the addresses you are using are correct for the K4.

The output of ping says it's sending from 192.168.15.201, so that seems fine, just as the route.

Code:
#ip route show
default via 192.168.178.1 dev wlan0  proto static 
192.168.15.0/24 dev usb0  proto kernel  scope link  src 192.168.15.201 
192.168.178.0/24 dev wlan0  proto kernel  scope link  src 192.168.178.31  metric 2
/edit, what the hell? my routes are chaning. Now they are back to normal. And it does work.

/edit 2: Ok, it's all the fault of network-manager. I curse you!

OK - so check the USBnetwork configuration file on the Kindle - see what address it has been set to.

and/or use nmap on the 192.168.15.0/24 sub-net to find it.

Thank you very much, now it works. network-manager is being network-manager and destroying the network. Your post hinted to me my routes are constantly chaning.

Got tired of that piece of #$%# software myself.
Hints: http://askubuntu.com/questions/24994...networkmanager

ifup/ifdown in the right places, along with the /etc/network/interfaces configuration file has been working just fine for years.
and still does if you take a big stick to NetworkManager.

Yup, while NM is nice to have for some use cases (laptop/netbook/traveling/newbie), on a desktop/dev computer I firmly put it in the 'overkill & counterproductive/annoying' box .

(That said, I haven't used anything shipping NM for, err, quite a while, but given the number of issues we've had reported that could be traced back to NM...)
