Ubuntu Installation :: Installing 10.10 From USB - Can't Connect To Internet
Feb 16, 2011
Trying to install 10.10 from USB onto my Dell Inspiron mini 10. I am able to boot into the USB, but I cannot connect to the internet - wireslessly or otherwise. When I plug the internet cable directly into the computer that does not work. I had to fidget with some drives to get the Network Manager to work, which it finally did, but it won't connect either - just keeps asking for the password.
I installed OpenSuse 11.04. To connect to the Internet, I use the script which connects to my Internet provider:
linux-aghn:/home/alex # cable-start Using interface ppp0 Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/4 PAP authentication succeeded
At this stage in another Linux distribution I am connected. In OpenSuse, when I start Firefox, it cannot connect. The problem is not in the browser, Software Management program also reports that connection is not available. ping 188.8.131.52 is successful. I tried to disable Firewall - doesn't help.
connect my Ubuntu 10 edition to internet through nokia 5630 xpressmusic. also i am not at all aware of the commands used in ubuntu.. if any body having help file abount basic installation commands. install virtualbox inside Ubuntu10. i downloaded the package fro site.but it shows dependance error..
yesterday I installed pulseaudio and pavumeter. This morning I couldn't connect to the internet anymore. I checked the settings but couldn't see any changes. I read the post at [URL]?t=370108 and I'm going to post the outcome of the instructions here:
I just upgraded from 8.1 to latest production build and my DSL network connection is failing to connect - and I can't connect to the internet (the crisis ). I have tested the modem & ISP connection, they are fine.
Looking in the syslog after failed attempt to connect it shows NetworkManager reporting <WARN> pppd_timed_out(): Looks like pppd didn't initialize our dbus module & Marking connection 'ISP1' invalid Under the ISP1 connection settings, I have tried All and one at a time of the PPP Settings 'Configure Methods'
I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a system (Details below) and it seems I can hardly do anything. I installed on a laptop that already had Windows XP SP3, creating a dual boot machine with wubi. *DUAL BOOTING IS WORKING FINE* Sorry, hand must have slipped on the caps lock there....
1. How do I access SystemTools?
2. Using network manager, I added a connection for Mobile Broadband, and the connection seems to work, but I still cannot connect to the Internet. Note that previously the USB modem works fine in Windows.
Modem: Huawei E1556 from Claro (Caribbean) Machine: Panasonic Toughbook CF30, dual processor. Harddisk has 5 partitions. Windows is on C:, Ubuntu on G: as a wubi file. If anyone can help, I would geatly appreciate it. Please note that currently, I can only access the internet via the Windows partition, which means if I have to download install new package(s) in Ubuntu to get this working, I'm stuck.
New Toshiba Satellite L650 D 64 bit ..Processor Vision Tech. With WIN 7 it connects through the Linksys Wireless G Router and also straight Broadband Cable . But I have tried Xubuntu 10 .04 ..Linux Mint 10.04 [ which I installed].
Open SUSE 11.2 and none will connect . My old laptop runs Xubuntu 10.04 /
Ubuntu 8.10 no problem but 32 bit. I cannot get this 64 bit version installation right?
I've just installed Ubuntu. My house isn't wired so I use wireless on all my machines to connect to the internet. When I start up Ubuntu, I can connect to my wireless router. After about 3 minutes, I get disconnected. It refuses to reconnect for several minutes. If I disable and reenable networking, I can establish a connection again, but the process is repeated. I'm not really sure what the issue is here. Any guesses? This is a desktop and I'm using a Belkin wireless adapter.
I recently installed Fedora 11 on Sony Vaio laptop and I cannot connect to the internet. I used many different kind of browsers and no luck. I am using wireless it is Broadcom 2200 card and i can tell the driver is installed correctly and it says I am connected to the wireless fine. Strange thing is that when i use software update it downloads them fine which means the internet is there. But I cannot goto any webpage with my browser. I run ifconfig and i can even ping websites without problem. I checked my firewall to see if its blocking my port 80 but it was not blocking.
I just recently Ubuntu 9.10 and have never used Linux at all before. I was wondering, all the links and tips and everything tell me to use Ubuntu Software Center. I haven't had a chance to actually go to the Software Center yet but does it require an internet connection to install software or can I download the tar.gz / tar.bz2 files from sources such as Softpedia.com and still install them using Software Center without a Internet Connection?
I don't yet have an internet connection on my machine so I am using cyber cafes to do my research and whatnot. However, most of the stuff I read concerning updates and installations rely heavily on the machine using an internet connection to automatically install various packages.I don't mind reading up myself on this kind of thing but I think I need a pointer in the right direction as "ubuntu package install without apt/get" doesn't bring up much on a google search (the only entry on the first page is a post on this forum back from 2005 about kernal compiling!).
As an example, the file I would like to install is "aircrack-ng-1.0.tar.gz", which I've already downloaded and saved to my machine's desktop. I'm not really asking how to install aircrack, per se, but just any kind of package without relying on an internet connection (i.e. download the program/package to a flash disk and then on to my machine).
I have Ubuntu 10.04 on my PC but I do not have access to internet (I have an Acer 3610 and before to install NDSI wrapper I have to install a Kernel). I have the most recent Kernel available on my external hardrive. I do not know how to use sudo command to install it.
I Have Installed Ubuntu 10.04 according to the steps mentioned in the following pdf [URL] the problem is after installation i am unable to connect to internet. i have connected internet on LAN but cannot detect it on console. unless i update the system i cannot get GUI.
I have internet connection - you need to open a browser & in the login screen enter your user name & password to get connected. The connection is via a ethernet cable. I have the netinstall cd for debian testing. How to connect to internet & get debian testing installed.
I've finally managed to install Fedora 11 but I can't connect to the internet via wifi. Ethernet works fine though but when I unplug the cable and try to mess with the settings, I still can't connect. I'm currently using Mac iBook G4 and I can see that my wireless card (Broadcom wireless b/g) has been detected but I just can't seem to figure out how to make it work.
last night i have fresh installed ubuntu 10.4 on my computer. Then after that, I installed the updates. Lastly, i installed nvidia hardware driver so that i could use its graphical effects. After rebooting my computer, i've noticed that i was disconnected from the internet. And I was surprised that it is the cause of my internet disconnection because when i remove it, my internet comes back. What should I do with this?
During the installation of Debian ( debian-8.2.0-amd64-CD-1.iso ) I couldn't connect to any mirror probably because the internet wasn't configured.
Thus, after the basic installation I wasn't able to install any packages ( trying to install sudo as root prompted me to insert the media disc - the USB drive I used wasn't detected going in an infinite loop ). Judging by the fact that I don't have a window manager installed.
On one machine is upgraded from F7 to F10: no problems. On my second machine, I did a fresh install. I can connect to the internet via KPPP, but both Firefox & Konqueror fail to recognize that I'm online. I tried to create a network modem connection, but when I select "new" & "modem", then press the "forward" button, nothing happens.
I've been looking through the Debian wiki, searching past topics in the forum, and generally googling, but all to no avail. I'm unable to connect to the internet through any wireless connections, nor through an ethernet cable. I installed the latest weekly image of Debian squeeze. After installation, I found myself on the command line. I installed gnome with
apt-get install gnome-desktop-environment I also tried installing gnome-applets, gnome-netstatus-applet, and gnome-nettool, but I guess they were already installed. When I open System > Administration > Network in Gnome, there's no connections tab in the Network Settings application.
Here's what I think is the relevant portion of lspci -v
07:00.0 Ethernet Controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01) Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 137a Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ23 Memory at c2000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K] Capabilities:  Power Management version 2
I'm one of those people migrating from Ubuntu and in Ubuntu I had to add a 'rfkill -unblock all' command to my rc.local file for this laptop. Not sure if that's relevant, but thought more info couldn't hurt.
My Netbook is ASUS EeePc HA900, I already use Ubuntu 10.04 is ok, nothing problems, then I upgrade to Ubuntu 10.10, it is still Ok. But when I upgrade to ubuntu 11.04, it have problems with Wifi, when I connect Internet via Wifi, just input the Password, it make my computer slow to halt, and have to turn the power off to shutdown the computer.
On this box I have Two seperate Ubuntu installations. Recently in both I seem to be having the same problem. I initially can connect to the internet as per normal and use any internet application. But after a period of time, sometimes just minutes, sometimes hours, even though the icon says connected, I cant update pages or send emails etc because there is no actual connection. My Physical connection is good I know - My Ubuntu laptop and Windows gamming PC connect fine during this period. So
Does this suggest an intermittent hardware fault or is there some thing in Ubuntu I can check to make sure that it is setup correctly and nothing has been corrupted? I am a lay PC person - I dont really want to be command prompting - Plug & Play and Point & Click is my limit.
After upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04, I'm not able to make any connection to the internet with either my netbook through WiFi or my computer on wired LAN. I can, however, ping my Solaris machines and Macbook. How do I fix this?
I tried to install Xubuntu 10.10 Maverick as dual boot on my laptop. However when xubuntu is on, I can't find a way to connect to internet. When I try the 2 arrows on the up-right corner the option for wireless is deemed. I tried offline/online, that did not work either. when I click the firefox It says you are not connected.
I am trying to setup a dhcp server for my internal network. I have two NICs, a modem, and a wireless router. I have my server connected directly to my modem which is providing me with Internet access on eth1 and is working fine. I have dhcp and dns setup on eth0 which is connected to my router. The router shows that it is connected to the Internet but when the router gives a client computer an IP address, the client is unable to connect to the Internet but can connect to the router. I will post my configuration files below with my current configuration.
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.
