Ubuntu Networking :: Connected But Not Loading Pages
Feb 13, 2010
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 in a dual boot Vista system (DELL INSPIRON 530). Everything was ok except the wireless network configuration. Afrer checking on the Internet I realized There was an issue with my network card (Broadcom BCM431. I first tried to install the drivers using Ndiswrapper with not succes. Finally, I was able to use the b43 driver by installing b43-fwcutter. Now the driver is shown and active in the Hardware Drivers Utilily. I am even connected to my Wireless Network. However, I cant load any website. I have checked the parameters in the network set up. I have even tried different options, like static or dinamic IP. But I cant load any website.
I am Using Ubuntu 10.04 fresh install connected to internet via VPN Network.Internet works fine i can dowload mail and send. But for some reason i cant load some webpages like Facebook, Adobe and etc.I install all the newest programs Java, Flash anything.I'm runnung Firefox 3.6.9.I tried everything disabled IPV6, Proxy. But nothing solved it
I am currently using Open SuSE 11.3 and connect to the internet through a fixed wireless terminal (CDMA Wireless modem), Huawei ETS-1201 with BSNL connection. The problem is that, after dialling and connecting to the internet, some pages dont load randomly. Sometimes, Google loads quite fine, but other times, it is just stuck and I have to reload the page several times. When I connect through Windows, I have no such problem. I have used Fedora, Ubuntu and Sabayon but the same problem exists. I don't want to return to Windows but is frustrated with my web experience on linux.
after wrestling with several problems over the past few days of switching over to a portable version of Linux 9.10 (I'm running a Live USB created using Lili USB), and deciding between the UNR or the Desktop i386 releases (I eventually went with UNR because i386 will not load on my netbook and ends up corrupting itself), I now find myself with the interesting problem that Firefox will no longer load webpages.I'm using a wireless connection, and it worked about 4 hours ago, but doesn't any longer. It registers that it is connected (The network icon displays the connected information), but the webpages themselves will not load (And I don't know if any other web based application functions- I only bothered to check firefox).
And I know the connection itself is not to blame because I'm using it right now to post this message (Off of Windows 7).Any help that can be given would be appreciated. Except for these problems that come up I'm loving Ubuntu, and intend to use it inbetween classes and such.EDIT:No internet applications work, and the router does assign me an IP address while in Ubuntu. Also, the speed of the "Server not found" message indicates that it's not even trying to connect.
I have installed network controller driver(iwlwifi) in debian jessie and connected to wifi, but I could not connect to any web sites. I installed network-tools and input "iwconfig" it did show a wlan0 there.
Then I opened resolv.conf ,but there were 2 resolv.conf in my /etc,one contains "search lan nameserver 192.168.199.1",one contains "nameserver 184.108.40.206 nameserver 220.127.116.11".
I changed the content of the first one to 18.104.22.168 and restart networking,but I still could not open pages with wireless network.
And I open the first one again,and it changed back to 192.168.199.1,and an extra line "domain lan"above the line"search lan".
Two very simmilar laptops connected to the same WiFi router loading the same web pages. Firefox on Windows does that for 3 secons, while Firefox on Ubuntu needs 1-3 minutes to load the same page. What could be the reason for this? Any idea how to fix it? The laptop with Ubuntu runs 10.04 LTS (lucid), Firefox is 3.6.10 and on any other WiFi network it loads the web pages really faster but why is much slower than Windows now?When testing the speed on URL...Ubuntu loads times faster than Windows. The WiFi router has been reseted. Firefox has been started in -safe-mode, both didn't help.
browsers consistently hanging and not fully loading web pages. this happens in all the browsers i have tried. Opera and Chromium and Firefox. This only happens in Ubuntu. All the other computer in this house load fine and this windows side of this computer loads the pages the right way. At this point i don't know what to do but keep hitting stop and reload and few time till the page loads. can anyone help with this? Also I have tried to clear the cashes. One question where do the temporary Internet files go so I can manually clean that folder out. And also Firefox isn't to bad and the other browsers I just don't like it that much as I like the opera.
I'm having trouble with Firefox hanging. It takes at least two attempts to launch, having to force the initial blank page to quit. Often it will freeze my desktop when loading new pages, and I have to force quit. I've upgraded to 3.6.17 but no difference. The Mozilla help page suggests disabling add-ons to find the problem, but to no avail. Chrome works OK but I'd rather use Firefox.
The same network environment, no matter which browser I use, my fedora 13 always works slower than windows XP on loading web pages. Others are better than windows -- like memory management...(I directly feel that). applications running more smoothly than those in windows xp.
I want to know how could I make it faster on loading web pages.
I am trying to set up my Apache server with FastCGI as the CGI engine. It will be mostly running PHP, but I may add Perl or something else later. I started from a completely fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04 with every update available. I used the install CD to install a LAMP server as part of the system install.I am using the tutorial at URL...to add the FastCGI functionality. I am having some problems with getting everything to work.The first problem was that apache2-suexec-custom wouldn't accept a different document root. I fixed that by compiling apache2-suexec from source with the document root changed to the correct path.
The next problem is that every php page I load throws a 500 error. Apache's error logs show that FastCGI isn't returning the page data correctly to Apache.
I have been investigating some security precautions over the past several months. I use Ubuntu now instead of windows and FIrefox browser also. I have installed BetterPrivacy, WOT, NoSCript and a few other add ons. I have SELinux, ClamAV, AIDE, and chkrootkit installed for Ubuntu.
When we browse certain web sites, we get an error about the server being reset. However, when I put the Ubuntu install cd in and browse with Firefox, obviously with no add ons or settings changed, we can browse to the site with no problems. We are trying to be secure on the internet and I don't want to lower or get rid of any of the settings / add ons we added. What would cause servers to reset when using Firefox / Ubuntu with browser add ons / OS addons?
I have Kubuntu installed under windows 7. It finds my wireless connection and says i am connected. even with a wired connection it does the same. When i go to the web browser and try it out. says problem with connection. will include some pictures of "iwconfig" and others.
I recently bought my laptop (Fujitsu nh540) and installed FC14 on it. I have Integrated WLAN Atheros HB97 (IEEE 802.11b/g/n) (more info here about the config) running on: 22.214.171.124-91.fc14.i686.PAE
Since I installed FC I've had problems with the internet. In any browser pages load very slow, it looks like the browser waits some seconds, sometimes even 1-2 minutes until it actually starts to load the page.
Second thing I saw is that when it boots I keep getting: Determining IP information for eth0... failed; no link present. Check cable? [FAILED] But I have WiFi internet. I am not using a wired internet connection.
I installed madwifi driver (compiled it, after reading some info on google and it seems it should be good for my network) and it seems it's a bit better, but I still have to wait some seconds until it starts loading pages. I tried different browsers, it makes no difference. On my other 2 laptops I have no problems, the internet works fine, same goes for my android mobile phone. Another "nice" problem I noticed is that when compiz is enabled I see incoming video on skype black and the same black screen for some movies with some programs. After disablig compiz, all works for video.
I'm running Suse 11.1 KDE 3.5. My wireless is working absolutely slow. Pages aren't loading fast and I timeout when trying to do online updates. Here's some information:
Device: PRO/Wireless 3945 ABG [Golan] Network Connection Kernel Driver: iwl3945 All my firmware seems to be in order. /usr/sbin/iwlist scan lo Interface doesn't support scanning. wmaster0 Interface doesn't support scanning. wlan0 Scan completed : .....

I' have FC10,firefox3.0.4it take ages to load any page.the d/l speed is good .but while loading pages it takes a lot of time!while on XP everything works fine even though the the firefox version being an earlier one than FC10
I am running Xubuntu 9.04, with LXDE on an old Acer 526iTX. After fiddling around trying to connect it to a Vista machine using a crossover cable, I must have broken the internet (well not the whole internet obviously, just my connection). nm-applet will show the connection as working, but no loading takes place (eg. firefox shows 'connecting to google.com.au..' but nothing happens). Same behaviour whether browsing, pinging or updating by CLI, and over any type of connection (mobile broadband, wifi or ethernet cable). This has persisted over many days, through restarts and deleting and re-creating the connection in nm-applet. I can also rule out a hardware problem as the connections work fine using a live CD.It's no big deal if I have to reinstall (I probably will anyway), but I was wandering if anyone would know the probable cause of this behaviour.
I have installed "open-SUSE 11.4" on a "500GB Free Agent External Hard Drive". I didn't have any problem in booting since last week that I booted it from my laptop. Also I did it before several times from then when I try to boot it e.g. from an "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66GHz" PC the time between loading INITRD and starting boot sequence messages lasts nearly 30 minutes!(i didn't actually measure it but it take a long time in the same order). after starting boot sequence which is showed on monitor everything looks normal. e.g copy of files would be done by speeds between 2MB/s to 30 MB/s depending on the targets.I used to use the external hard derive to boot from different laptops and PC's from start but I didn't have such a problem anytime.
I can't seem to fire up any web pages but I can do everything else on my ubuntu box. This seems to have started within the past day or so. My /etc/reslov.conf file looks solid.Again, I can ssh, vnc and ping to the outside but just can't load any web pages.
I seem to have stumbled on a problem regarding internet connectivity. My web browser (Firefox or any other web browsers) can't completely load the desired webpages like yahoo.com or even google.com.But as I read different blogs in this forum, I have convinced myself that there is an internet connection.= when I ping different websites, Iseem to get good responses from those sites. Only when I need to browse the webpage do get no results.= ifconfig seems to respond well enough.= even "route" shows the IP my router/gateway correctly. The problem , I think, lies on the proxy settings or the DSN.
I'm running a squid proxy in my ubuntu server, and I must have mess it up with the squid configuration. Users, cannot, access https pages. Can you tell me what to change in my squid.conf, so, to fix this?
Here is my squid.conf (witch is a friends conf, that i have change for my needs...)
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?
This started yesterday. I haven't made any recent changes. I can't access any pages beginning with https. It's just my computer because my girlfriend's laptop doesn't have any issues. I'm using OpenDNS, but I have been for a long time and this is the first time this has ever happened. I'm not using a router, I connect straight to the modem, which I've already reset.
I have 2 laptops connected by a lan cable - from 1 laptop network card to the other. the first laptop is an Asus eeePc that runs a modified version of debian. this one is connected to the internet and i simply want the other one to connect to the internet via the lan cable. the "server" has 2 connections: 1. one for connecting to the internet via a dialup mobile connection (i checked and this connection is shared) 2. the 2nd connection: "Local Area Connection" defined this way:
IP address: 192.168.0.4 subnet mask: 255.255.255.0 + it is also marked as 'shared' that's all, no Gateway/DNS/Wins defined
my problem is that the client (192.168.0.3) cannot open web pages even if it sees just fine the server's files.
Excuse me if such thread exists already, i carefully searched the forum so i wont create a second one concerning the following problem:So i downloaded (on my new fresh Fujitsu SIEMENS Li3710 running Vista the Ubuntu 9.04 distro.. im a complete Linux noob, but i wanted to give it a second try) so i downloaded it and burned it on the fast laptop, so there wont be any errors caused by low memory during burning I installed and then i went to the Ubuntu desktop - i had all drivers installed. Everything but Amarok sound worked, i turned off my laptop and went doing my job.. The next time i started up my laptop and went on the desktop .. a tradition is to browse the web, so i did that and i couldnt load a single page, except pages with direct IPs i had Skype working just fine and i had a friend there running SuSe and asked him for help. We identified it as a DNS problem, but because of my noobness i couldnt deal with it and i HAD TO switch back to windows, wich i regret so much.
I know that im a noob, but if i have an internet running at its best i can look at forums and resolve my other issues, so im asking for a screenshots on DNS settings so i can fix it the next time i install Ubuntu.Also! I was using cable via PPPoE (and the only terminal command i know is "sudo pppoeconf" ), now im with router, connecting my laptop directly via WI-FI, will i have the same problem and will i have to make settings so i can connect to my router? Because back then i tried to connect to wireless networks and the ones i could connect on XP/Vista/7 i simply couldnt connect on Ubuntu...I really want some real PC knowledge and to use Linux
