advice on network setup please

Setting up a lan+internet with
android phone (usb)
pc1 desktop (usb+ethernet+wifi in ap mode)
pc2 laptop (wifi)
pc3 xbmc (ethernet)
pc1 gets internet from android and shares it via cable and wifi to pc3 and pc2.
All pcs will run ubuntu 12.04.
Its sort of working (wifi is erratic) but with dhcp which is not ideal. I'd like to set up static ips for remote desktop, remote control of xbmc etc.
What would be the best way to go about this, while keeping ubuntu vanilla as much as possible?
Will network manager/avahi etc. interfere or do they respect config files?

Dear network experts
i would like to have a setup at my home office whereby all traffic is routed through OPENVPN
at present, i have each pc has a configured OPENVPN

but i fail to understand the technicality of this setup.

Wireless Network Setup with Ubuntu 5.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 11, 2006
My question is very similar to How do I connect wirelessly to my router?, but the specifics are different. I apologize if the answer is the same.
My friend called me a few days ago to help him set up a wireless network connection for his computer. He has one computer, which is running Microsoft Windows XP: Service Pack 2 (but that doesn't matter), downstairs, which is directly connected to a Quest ACTIONTEC DSL modem with a built in wireless router. I configurated the wireless router so that it would work with a wireless connection, but my problem lies in the second computer with the wireless network adapter. The second computer (the one he wants the wireless internet connection on) has a fresh install of Ubuntu 5.10 on it, and there is nothing else on the hard drive.
I do not know the brand or model number of the wireless network adapter, but it looks a lot like a flash thumb drive and connects to a USB port. I am positive that is a wireless network adapter because it says so o
Help and knowledgable advice with QoS please
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 15, 2010
I have a Cisco AP1142N access point where I can enable QoS. I have a few questions relating to QoS and how it actually works with devices: 1.How does the Cisco access point (or any router) differentiate between traffic streams? 2.What happens if the source of the stream is not a Cisco device, e.g.: Netperf traffic generator? 3.What is the access point examining to determine what sort of traffic stream it is (whether the AP is Cisco or not)? 4.Is it the TOS field? 5.Should all applications in the network be QoS-aware?
Backup over network setup mutliple computers (NFS, NIS, SMB?)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 24, 2009
I have a computer lab in our K-12 school with 30 ubuntu desktops. There is a windows server that really only supplies the subdomain that the desktops are on. Things are going rather well over all and I am learning much as I go. Right now I have it setup that I can easily administer the systems via SSH.
All computers currently use the same logon for the students (normal desktop user without any administrative priveleges) and that account is always left on. This is because the computer teacher for the younger students threw a tantrum (yes, like a child) when I said I wanted to have each student use an individual login. "It was never that way before. . .it will be too hard. . .they will forget. . .blah, blah, blah." Of course, she has taken the switch to ubuntu quite well, so I think she could handle individual logins and teaching students responisbility. I could even have the youngest (1st and 2nd grade) students all have the same login. I believe to do this I would need an
Brother MFC7360N Printer Network Setup
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 17, 2011
This is what I did to set up a Brother MFC-7360N to print over network connection. (Printer is hardwired to my wifi router).
AS OF 6/16/2011 there is not a 64bit linux driver. THIS WILL ONLY WORK WITH 32bit! But, it says on the FAQ page that they are currently working on a 64bit driver...
###PLUG IN YOUR PRINTER VIA USB###
1. Go To http://welcome.solutions.brother.com.../en/index.html
2. Click "Printer Driver"
3. Click "MFC-7360N"
4. Download the .deb version of the CUPSWRAPPER and LPR. They should be saved to your "Downloads" folder.
5. Install LPR Driver with:
dpkg -i --force-all (lpr-drivername)
Example: "dpkg -i --force-all mfc7360nlpr-2.1.0-1.i386.deb"
6. Install CUPS Driver with:
dpkg -i --force-all (cupswrapper-drivername)
Example: "dpkg -i --force-all cupswrapperMFC7360N-2.0.4-2.i386.deb"
7. Make Sure Everything Went OK:
dpkg -l | grep Brother
Intel 537 modem found on hardware browser but not by network setup?

I recently installed fedora 2 on my laptop, and had problem with the modem, found out its make (smartlink V.92 537) and managed, eventually to install the drivers and start the modem. The hardware browser can detect the modem, but when i try to set up the internet connection it just fails and cant activate the modem, any ideas would be greta.
Ubuntu 8.04/64 > Virtualbox > XP manual network setup?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 20, 2008
I installed the latest (2.04?) Virtualbox from Sun on a 64 bit Ubuntu 8.04 workstation and then installed XP. Miraculously, the network worked fine immediately, the immaculate installation! Then, I spent half a day installing Photoshop, Nero, Comodo firewall/AV, etc. Then I saved a snapshot. I did a samba mapping of my Ubuntu drive into xp and it worked fine (although I could not see my xp share in Ubuntu).
Suspend mode does not work (never fully wakes up, ~black screen, garbled contents, ...), so I have to turn it off every night. Today, all networking is gone in xp and windows is complaining that there is no firewall or a/v software.
I tried assigning a static ip address which (I think) is the same address it had when it worked:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.2.15
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.2.2
I gave it the same dns servers that my real xp
Help with initial network setup for linux server in windows group
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 22, 2010
I have 3 windows computers and just bought linux server. All of them are currently connected to switch. There is also Wireless AP connected to switch and ADSL router connected to switch (yeah, I know its possible to buy a 3in1 but this was bought piecemeal). ADSL is doing the DHCP and I'm not using any other advanced services.
Now, I want to route everything over the linux server. I got the 3 LAN cards for him (one for wireless, one for LAN and one for ADSL) but when I connect everything this way its not working (surprise surprise). I'm following Linux Advanced Routing & Traffic Control HOWTO but its surprisingly sparse on the topic of network setup and i dont know how to proceed now.
Since the server will be a choke point I presume I need to setup DHCP server on him? First question is: can I use same netmask on all of these subnets? Ubuntu DHCP server guide uses both static and DHCP and am not sure if I should also use static on some routes or is it ok to use DHCP on all.
OwnCLoud server network setup
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 3, 2013
I have a server with 2 NICs, 1 connected to the internet (eth0), the other to my LAN (eth1). The server acts as router (dnsmasq), and also runs some virtual machines. 1 of these virtual machines is used for OwnCloud (it's ip is 192.168.1.11 (connected to the local network)).
I have all incomming traffic on eth0 on port 443 is forwarded to the OwnCloud virtual machine using iptables. This way, I can connect OwnCloud using https://xxx.mooo.com/. I use xxx.mooo.com as a dynamic ip (the ip of eth0).
My problem is: When I am on my LAN, my OwnCloud client can't connect.
I have added: "address=/xxx.mooo.com/192.168.1.1" to my dnsmasq.conf and I am forwarding everything incoming on eth1 (LAN) (really br0, that bridges eth1) on port 443 to 192.168.1.11
All I wan't is the ability to use "https://xxx.mooo.com/" or "https://xxx.mooo.com:p/" (p being some port) to connect my OwnCloud clients both when I am outside my LAN and inside it.
