I have an issue relating my broadband connection, which I am not able to solve. I hope and wish, that I would find some way out here.
Some introduction: I am using Dell Inspiron (i3 processor) laptop, which I recently bought. I have win 7 preinstalled in it. In win 7, the wired broadban connection (Airtel connection) is working fine and have no issues.
I have been using mobile GPRS(BSNL, Ltd) through bluetooth, and that have been working fine. But today when I tried to connect through landline connection, it didn't workout. But the bluetooth connection is still fine. When I tried to do the connection manually through Network Manager, it is not taking the MAC Address. Till now, after installation, I have not updated my OS.
I surfed the net and tried some commands, whose results I am posting below.
From a post I found out, that I should change my duplex settings (from 100 full to 10 full), but I could not get much. The corresponding commands and output,
I just bought a basic Dell Inspiron 570 Desktop, and installed Ubuntu 9.10, and found that the wired internet won't connect. I've checked the wire, and confirmed that an Ubuntu laptop can get a wired connection using it, but the new Inspiron doesn't do anything.
The "Network Connections" dialog shows a "Wired connection 1" item, but Network Manager refuses to connect to it. ifconfig only shows the lo interface.
How can I get this wired interface working? Please, this is very frustrating. I can only assume it's some sort of driver issue (which seems rare with the wired connection), but I can't even run an update since I don't have an internet connection.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 on my Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop, but I can't connected to the Internet with a wired or wireless connection. I have a BT Home Hub 2 wireless router. I can connect to the Internet when running Windows Vista, but not with Ubuntu.
I tried installing the Broadcom STA driver off of the live disk, which initially seemed to work. However, I still couldn't connect to the Internet and when I clicked on System > Administration > Hardware Drivers, there weren't any proprietary drivers to install or that had been installed. Also, when I reboot, Ubuntu tries to connect to my network automatically but always fails. That's what makes me think that a driver has been installed, but just isn't the right one or isn't working.
My desktop computer, running 11.04 (fresh install) sometimes can't establish a wired Ethernet connection. Sometimes when I boot, it keeps trying to establish, but with no luck. I keep trying to choose "Auto eth0" from the networking menu, but still, it doesn't succeed. If I reboot, it sometimes works. I can't establish a connection about half the times that I boot.
The computer is connected with a cable to a router ("Belkin Wireless Pre-N router"), and the router is connected with a cable to a cable modem.I've been using Ubuntu for a while, and I've had a problem for the past few versions (since around 10.04)? I thought that it might be some old issue that got resolved, so I did a fresh install of 11.04 today, and still have the same behaviorI'm willing to try things next time I can't get a connection, but don't know what.
I just got my internet working through the wireless card with some help. However, my downloading speeds are beyond extremely slow. While I type on this computer, I am downloading things @ ~500-700kb/s, but when I try to download the package updates etc for my Ubuntu 9.10 laptop, It downloads @ ~ 4k b/s- which is UNBEARABLY slow, putting me at 14h left to complete a 200 mb update. Dell Inspiron 1100. Ubuntu 9.10
I've been running Ubuntu 10.10 on my Dell Vostro 1500 for awhile, one morning I tried to get online & no networks would show up. I tried plugging in my ethernet cable & still nothing. Just the two lights by the plug stay lit up. If I boot into Puppy Linux the wireless works just fine. I was using the B43 driver before I had problems, then when I was trying to get it to work I accidentally deleted the driver. I cannot figure out how to get my internet working again in Ubuntu. I don't want to be stuck using Puppy Linux forever! I don't really know many commands, normally just search online how to fix problems, but it's pretty hard to do when I have to boot back & forth between operating systems to find things to try.
I need to install a program by using the address http://255.255.255.255. However, when I type this address in my browser, I get the following error: "Failed to connect. Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 255.255.255.255. Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection." Is there an easy way to put this site into the air?
i have a dell inspiron 15r that i plan on running fedora on, however, today i booted fedora from a live cd and it was completely oblivious to the fact that i have a wireless card, obviously i need certain drivers for it, problem is i dont know what drivers those would be, or where to get them, http://www.dell.com/us/business/p/inspiron-15r/pd this is my laptop model, and it says i have a "Standard Dell Wireless 1501 802.11 g/n" wireless card, if anyone could tell me how to get this working,
i got wired connection using Ubuntu 10.10 and im new using ubuntu pls tell me where i must write the words not to write codes and i don't where i must do it.what is the best version of Ubuntu didn't had that problems?as i saw that Ubuntu 10.10 had same problem for all people.
I just got an error message and i have no clue what it means.Error: Unable to establish connection with FAM.Do you have "FAM" or "Gamin" installed and running?I installed the net cd of Lenny and it is up to date so I don't know whats up.
I have set WAN to 'bridged' mode for my D-Link DSL-G604T so that individual devices can connect directly to the internet.
A problem I now face is not being able to connect a computer running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to the internet via DSL.
The computer connects to the D-Link DSL-G604T router via wireless network connection - which is established, but I am unable to connect to DSL and I don't know why. The DSL connection doesn't even list under the network icon at the top right.
Working in CentOS. Want to have drag-and-drop SCP access to another system.
Opened up the file manager (nautilus) and went under File -> "Connect to Server". Filed in the information, hit connect. The connection will sit forever and will never properly establish. It creates an icon on my desktop, but noting else.
If I go into terminal, su to root, open nautilus and then repeat the process as a root user, then it works successfully. Connection established after I trust the remote host. File transfer works fine.
what is occurring when I attempt to connect as my normal user?
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my Dell Inspiron 1545 64-bit laptop. Before that I used Windows7. In Windows, the internet connection worked perfectly well. But after installing Ubuntu, I am unable to connect to the internet. The network-manager applet finally says that "You are disconnected". When I do the "ifconfig", I got no IP address.
So, I installed Ubuntu 9.04 in the same system. But the problem persists.
I gone through many posts in this forum but nothing was useful.
I have just installed ubuntu 10.04 using the wubi installer to dual-boot my machine. Under ubuntu, I am not able to connect to the internet or my router. Everything works fine under windows. I have tried to find relevant information in the forums, but nothing seems to work for me. I have tried disabling ipv6, setting a static ip, but no go. ifconfig shows no IP, dhclient results in no DHCP offers and pinging my router's IP results in Network is Unreachable.
I have a strange problem where I can connect to any site except for [URL]... with the latest Firefox and Google chrome both can connect to [URL]... Using Ubuntu 10 not 7.10 FireFox: Unable to connect Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at [URL]...
* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. * If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection. * If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
Google Chrome: This webpage is not available. The webpage at [URL].. might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address. More information on this error Below is the original error message Error 2 (net::ERR_FAILED): Unknown error. Really Strange is that every other site is fine?
I am trying to establish an ssh connection to my server. I have a regular ssh connection working through the command line, so I know my key works and I have the port forwarding on the router correct.
When I go to Places -> Connect to Server the window comes up properly. The only problem is that the drop down menu only has one option in it for Service Type. It is Custom Location. I have had this set up in the past and there were other options there. I chose the ssh connection and everything was fine. Now it doesn't work.
I have tried to completely uninstall nautilus and reinstall it, but that didn't work. When I did uninstall it, I uninstalled gnome-session as well, and I reinstalled that one too.
I am trying to set up, I am having problems understanding what steps I need to take but have done the following on recommendation of help from linux forums but am not getting anywhere with what I have done. PC:

I currently have a wired connection to my laptop but am trying to set up wireless, I have put the antenna on the router and have a wireless network showing called NETGEAR, amongst others, which is my primary router name so i'm trying to connect to that but the actual wireless antenna is on the switching hub. For all intents and purposed assume I am a complete newbie with ubuntu and linux command line stuff, I know basics like pwd, ls and so on but need a good bit of help trying to do this. When I click on this wlan network NETGEAR I get asked for the password, on the bottom of the switching hub is a code for WLAN and I put this in, it then asks for a password for a default keyring, which I do not know. How do I find this out?
But I am still not sure what I am supposed to be doing or looking for to resolve this connection problem, not only am I not a network expert I have no knowledge of linux either and steps to follow to establish a connection.
I'm using Ubuntu for almost two years and everything has worked well till now. One day I have reinstall ubuntu in my computer, but then something went wrong. I couldn't anymore establish my internet connection. I have tried everything but nothing helped. I even reinstall my ubuntu multiple times but there was no efekt. Even when I installed Kubuntu or an older Ubuntu 10.10, there was no internet. I'm also using Windows 7 but there is always a internet connection. I didn't change any hardware on my computer, only a new AMD graphic card. I'm using wired optical Internet 10/10 MB.
I just want to use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to connect to the internet. I have done a massive amount of troubleshooting, but some of it seems to contradict itself, and the only two things that I know for sure are that it used to work, and that my Ethernet cable is not the problem. When I use Terminal utilities like ifup and dhclient it seems that it can not determine IP information, but when I try to put it in manually, the "Apply" button grays out right after I finish typing it in. When I try to connect normally, in KDE or GNOME, the icon acts like it's connecting, then instead of having the connected icon, I receive a notification that "the network has been disconnected", and it goes back to the disconnected icon.
Oh, and by the way, I know that I could probably find a workaround, but I have limited resources, and this used to work. The Linux is a Dell desktop with Fedora 12 and the Windows is a Windows 7 HP laptop.EDIT: I hope that I didn't mess something up, but I accidentally used system-network-config to try putting in the IP address there, and ended up changing it back to the original settings, but the computer is now calling it Auto Ethernet in the taskbar icon, although sudo iwconfig in the terminal still calls it eth0.
