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 am basically wanting to use my Ubuntu 10.10 computer as a router. Note: Before you say just get a router please note that I am poor/cheap. I have two ethernet connections and one wireless connection on my netbook. I want to share the internet connection that is going into one of the ethernet cards through the other ethernet card and the wireless card.
DSL-->1sr Eth --> 2nd Eth (currently works) DSL-->1sr Eth --> Wireless Card (Adhoc) <--(connects with limited connectivity AKA no internet)
The 2nd Ethernet card already has working internet, but when I connect to the Wireless card (through an Adhoc network), it cannot get an IP (I believe).
I installed centos 5.3 x86 at vrtualbox on windows 7 x64 as host. The ping answers "network is unreachable", ifconfig has an ip "192,168,51,100". At control panel, I seleted intel PRO/1000MT Desktop Host only. Is this centos's problem?
Just turned on my computer after being away for a month and I am unable to browse the web when connected using my ethernet card.Skype is able to work fine and I am able to ping my router yet both Iceweasel and Chrome are unable to connect to any websites. Apt-get did not work as well, and Chrome states that there is an error with the DNS lookup, which lead me to try:
# /etc/init.d/nscd restart
yet it didn't work. I am able to browse the web normally when connected using the wireless card.
I just installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu 10.10 on a HP DV2500 laptop. Everything installed as expected but I am having some wireless issues I was hoping somebody could assist me with. I am able to connect to my network via wireless with no issues. However, when I attempt to browse the internet it will not connect to any pages. Obviously when I connect it via CAT 5 all works as expected. Any ideas on how to solve my wireless issues?
I have a compaq presario. I cannot connect my wifi. The indicator won't light up and I just get an error message sayin network is down on interface pppo. There seems to be some abswers out ther, but they are more advanced than I am.
I powered up the acer aspire one zg5 and it goes to the first screen but does not connect to the internet when I press the internet button the wifi connection is fine and will download updates fine but will not connect to the browser, am so out of my depth as not familiar with this system , if I dont fix this will have to blame one of the kids.
I was having a problem with cairo dock, asked on the board how to resolve was told to reinstall the visual driver for my monitor since I have an ati vid card since with the updated kernal u have to reinstall those drivers(didn't know that, I'm new to opensuse). I thought I did that before so I completely uninstalled it so I could then do a fresh reinstall but I wasn't paying attention and my laptop was unplugged for a while. I stepped away while the install was going on and my laptop died.
I tried plugging it in but had to restart my laptop when I did I got the command line rows and when I tried to start GDM it wouldn't start, I did so as SU. Attempted to connect to the internet via networkmanager and couldn't get wifi or wired to work. Anyway I can access my desktop visually just so I can start yast and install the driver or will I have to reinstall 11.2 or use the cd to repair? If so how do I use the cd to repair?
From today, I am unable browse internet using Fedora 10. Before this, I was using net in F10 with no problem, F10 was automatically configuring for net settings. But now I cannot connect to internet in F10, but I can connect to internet using windows xp. I have ADSL modem which automatically connects to internet when it is switched on. When I press any site name in Firefox it won't display any thing (in status it shows done).
And even following command not works. Code: ping www.google.com
But following command works fine ( I know yum search for software in repo using internet). I wonder how this commend works, while I cannot browse web. Code: yum search player
(I am completely dependent on linux). One more thing before occurrence of this problem I had installed xmms, xmms-mp2 and xmms-skins. I don't think this created problem.
I tryed to get network work like this share internet from wifi (wlan0) to ethernet (eth0).So the internet connection comes from the wifi and we share to other computer via ethernet[URL]But when I restarted my pc then it dont work and network says "wired network device not managed" How can I get it work aigan ?[URL]Now I have anohter problem when I connect autoeth then the wireless network dosent work anymore, I have to disconnect eth0 to have wirelles network working. how can I manage to get the bowh to work?
I'm connecting to a network via a Belkin F7D1101. The adapter appears to be working fine, as I can see various wireless networks available and I am able to connect to my personal wireless network. The problem is that even though I am connected and have a valid IP, I am unable to browse the Internet. I can't even ping the router!
I initially thought it may be an issue with WPA, but I have installed wpa-supplicant and as a means of testing, I turned off WPA on the router, and the issue still stands.
When I select the wifi icon on the panel, it just shows "No network devices available". I know my network can be found when I search with my iPhone, so I know there are networks to connect to. So, I checked the drivers, and it informs me that the B43 and STA drivers are not activated. So thats not a big deal, I guess, but when I use my ethernet cord, my laptop doesn't recognize/acknowledge (I'm not sure what the right term would be)it. I'm fairly sure I can't activate these drivers without an internet connection because when I do try, a message pops up saying "failed to fetch" with some long link.
My only guess is that it could be a hardware problem, but I really have no idea. I guess the ethernet problem is my only real problem. Because after I establish and internet connection the the rest is easy to fix.I'm sure its obvious, but I'll go ahead say that I'm a novice ubuntu user. I've only been working with it for about a week, but I'm learning alot.
I know this is not a win-doze forum but i always ask my questions here so here goes.I am having what appears to be a DNS problem on a friends laptop. He is running windows XP. I CAN connect to networks and even ping websites but i CANNOT browse in Internet Explorer or FIrefox.
I can connect to the internet through wifi, but I cannot connect to anything on my network. I have a printer and a NAS, so I would really like for this to work again. I have a dell laptop with a Broadcom card.
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 this morning and everything is working fine apart from one thing. I am unable to install my Speedtouch 330 modem on it and connect to the internet, I looked on the help pages and found this:
"Visit Ubuntu Packages Search and search for each of the following packages. Download them to a folder that is also visible from Ubuntu (or to a USB stick).
As I cannot access the internet I had to go back to windows, download them onto a memory stick, go back on to Ubuntu and install them. The first 12 worked fine and are now installed but number 13 and 14 wont allow me to update because "the dependency is un-satisfiable" does anyone know what this means and how I can fix it? I was also unable to get the USB ADSL Modem Manager too install either because of another error.
I recently moved to a student dorm in my university (RWTH Aachen) and I have an ethernet connection from my room. The thing is that I can't connect to the internet, I don't get any IP through DHCP. I tried using wicd instead of network-manager, and doing it manually with dhclient. None of those worked (actually I don't know much about how networking works so maybe I didn't do it well with dhclient). The weird thing is that Windows 7 gets the IP instantly and I can connect to the internet from windows. But I don't know why Ubuntu refuses to get an IP. Info from lshw, lspci:
I am unable to connect to the internet. I have Motorola Netopia DSL (NO router) and can't connect to the internet in ANY linux distro (openSUSE, fedora, slax, mandriva, simplymepis, mint, dreamlinux, ubuntu, ubuntu studio, artist linux). The only linux distro that works right away is backtrack linux 3. All other distro do not work including new back track linux 4 because in version 4 they switched to debian. My ISP is Bellsouth and they do not want to cooperate. I was told they do not support linux.
DSL shows internet and activity lights green but it does not connect.It seems to me problem is in eth0 because when I go to terminal and ifup eth0 it gives me can't assign requested address. I have dynamic DHCP and can't assign static address.I have 2 questions:
1.- How to connect to the internet?
2.- As I said above backtracklinux 3 works out of the box but doesn't have flash.How to install flash in backtrack linux 3 so I can play chess on Yahoo games and [URL]?
I run all linux distros from live CD/DVD from external DVD drive except fedora which is on C: drive.I did try to run already network devices, dsl configuration without any results If I can go to my modem thru browser address 192.168.1.254 I would be able to solve the problem but I always get message can't connect to server.
My laptop was on windows xp and when I installed ubuntu linux my NIC Card driver was gone (I think) and now I can't connect to the internet using an ethernet. I have the driver on the desktop of my Linux laptop but I don't know how to add it using terminal or any other options.
I am using Ubuntu Server version 10.4, and am trying to connect to the internet via an ethernet cable. This may and probably is incredibly simple, however, I could not find anything that pertains to it.
