Ubuntu :: Connect To The Internet With A Wired LAN Connection?
Jan 11, 2010
I have been trying to connect to the internet with a wired LAN connection for a while now with no luck. Running version 8.04 LTS on a 32-bit desktop. Interestingly, my 64-bit desktop running version 8.04 64-bit automatically connected to the internet with no problems or input from me. Both are connected to the same router.
I figured i'd try and copy the network manager settings from the 64-bit machine to the 32-bit machine, which involved setting an automatic configuration (DHCP}. All went well except no DNS server address showed up on the 32-bit system, despite there being one on the 64-bit system. Trying to run Firefox like this results in the 'page load error' page coming up immediately.
I then manually added the DNS server address from the 64-bit system to the 32-bit system, and all that did was prolong the time it takes for the 'page load error' page to appear.
I am unable to connect to the Internet using a wired connection. I was able to use the wired network yesterday. But I had problems with the flash player, so had to reinstall Ubuntu again. I am able to connect to Internet using wireless connection. But I need to connect to the wired connection. I am using Ubuntu 10. In my IPv4 settings, it is automatically set to DHCP, using which, I was earlier able to connect. But now it doesn't seem to be happening.
But there are other entries on the syslog that were recent.
I have just installed a fresh copy of 9.10 on an older Compaq nc6000 laptop. I need some help getting my Linksys WUSB600N wireless adapter to function properly.
I have "half-way" connectivity, meaning that I can see (and connect to) my home wireless network but I can't connect to the internet (unless I use the wired connection). I have installed NDIS wrapper - no change
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.
newly installed fedora 15 is not able to connect to internet i have broadband connection with wireless modem my laptop is connecting to wireless modem network. but i am not able to configure pppoe connection on it PS: i am able to connect to internet when using wired connection from modem
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.
My laptop has been working fine with ubuntu 10.04, and earlier today it shut down after running out of battery. I came to use itr and discovered that the wifi icon had disappeared from the panel bar, and it won't connect to the wireless networkor via a wired connection.I have had a play around with this, tried ping -c5 google.comresult was:ping: unknown host google.comand ping -c5 18.104.22.168result: onnect:etwork is unreachable.I have other computers connecting to this network and know that it is working fine.
i have just installed ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop hp 550.after i finished installation i connected to internet via eth0 wired connection normally and everything was fine...after about 1 hour i had no internet....i try restart but is the same problem....this is strange because my eth0 says connection established and when i open mozilla i cant open google either..when i ping [URL] it says "cant resolve "
my internet works fine in windows so what should i do to have back my internet on ubuntu...i cant do anything else in ubuntu if i have not internet and i like very much ubuntu so
I just installed ubuntu 8.10 on my pc. Before was XP installed. I formatted the system and installed ubuntu. Installation was successful. Problem is that I cant connect to network. My network card: realtek 8139 ethernet card
On ifconfig I get: Code: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:16:76:af:23:b3 UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) Interrupt:23 Base address:0xb800
Also the connection is wired one with modem only it's reliance broadband. The wire is connected between modem and pc but there is no blinking of light for this connection. The wan is active and wan's light is blinking and when I was on xp on same pc there was no such problem.
The situation is I have one machine just installed 10.04yesterday, and I plan to take it as FTP server sharing filesvia LAN and WAN as wellBut after setting up all network withNetwork-Manager found that my dsl connection willdisconnect while my wired connection was connected.
my network-manager setting process is: 1.wired tab: IPv4:192.168.1.x
After installing UNR onto my dell mini 9 and downloading the correct drivers to enable wireless internet (using this site: [URL]), I decided to load ubuntu onto my brothers netbook. After the installation completed, I went to do complete the steps listed in the above article, however I was unable to connect to the internet using an ethernet wire.
I have BIG troubles trying to set up wired internet connection in Ubuntu! To be able to connect to the internet I have to enter my MAC address, 2 IPs, netmask and 2 DNS address. When I try to edit the default internet connection eth0 with my correct information, the minute I enter my MAC address and save the changes the network manager creates new internet connection with wrong data and use it instead! I can't select the correct internet connection from the top bar where the internet icon is, because it is just not there. The only connection that I can choice is the new default one with the wrong data! If I try to create new separate internet connection with my correct data the same thing happens! The moment I enter my MAC address and save it, the internet connection disapears from the list of internet connections in the internet area in the top bar and I can't select it. I tried googling it, but with no luck I think that if I set up my connection trough the terminal everything will be ok
I have had the exact same set up 10.04 on the same machine connecting to the net with no problems. I had upgraded from an earlier version.
This time with a fresh install from disk the network manager does not see any connections. How can I get the manager to recognise the network and connect to the net?
I realise that it would help if I posted up the output of some commands in a terminal but I am writing this on my phone and can not cut and paste large chunks of text. I can only hope for some advice until I can get to a computer with a working connection.
Ubuntu 10.04 AMD dual core 64 bit with wired 10 meg broadband.
How can I get the network manager to see the connection
I have an old Compaq Presario v2000 that recently had Ubuntu 10.04 installed on it. The wired internet worked when it was installed, but the wireless didn't. I tried to download the drivers for it and it failed everytime. I did an update thinking that the update might fix the wireless, but it didn't, it actually made my wired connection stop working. So now I have a newly installed OS on the laptop, and I can't do anything on it because there is no way to get any internet.
I've just installed the 64 bit 10.04 onto my new netbook, with ample specs to run the full desktop version rather than the stripped down netbook version. My only problem (at the moment) is that my wired internet connection is not recognized within the operating system, yet while I was downloading/installing Ubuntu it had no problem finding and using the connection then. When I boot into Windows 7 or plug the ethernet cable into my Mac, the connection is established immediately, and no need for manual entering of anything because everything is auto-detected. The really strange thing is I've run Ubuntu off a USB stick and when booting off that the wired connection was immediately recognized after startup.
I have an ibm think pad and for some reason the internet(firefox) stop working and i don't know why , the netwprl settings have disappeared or anything on fixing it , yes i have tried restarting the modem but that hasn't work ethier Also i don't really know where the re-start disk so is there anyway i can fix it with out the disk?
I just installed wubi, and it looks awesome, I'm surprised, but I'm disappointing of 2 things. First time when I start ubuntu it freeze. 1st thing:I don't know how to make a broadband connection,that's what I'm using in W7. In the top right of the corner it says "wired connection off ,you're offline" 2nd it doesn't recognize the E drive, the drive where it is installed.
The problem isn't with thew new computer but with my computer running Ubuntu. The problem is that I'm having trouble getting the Internet to work. Before the router I just plug my PC straight into the modem but now with the router I can't get on the Internet. I can get a connection to the router but no Internet. I know the it is not the router because I use my PS3 and it worked fine. I spend like an hour just trying to get the connection but can't figure out the Internet problem. What I did to get the connection is copy the ip address, Mac, and etc. from the PS3. Then I made a new connection and put the data in the IPV4 settings and it got a connection but I'm not sure if I did that right or just got lucky
Using 10.10 and have a wired connection that according to the system is connected, but when I open a browser I can't connect to any sites. What am I missing here? I can't for the life of me figure this out.
I have installed Ubuntu for the first time (version 11.04), finally making the step to open source software. Everything seems to be working fine, however I can't connect to my router via a wired connection.I can use the wireless network,hich was detected and I could connect by giving the code. But when I try to connect to this network by wired network, it tries to connect and it says "connection offline" after a while. It never establishes a connection. I used the standard automatic DHCP settings of eth0. I never got this problem with another OS and it's not the cable that's not working
I have wired internet, but I can't connect to my modem. I have cable internet (Comcast) but my computer can't detect it. I do not know what do to. Tried a whole bunch a things, but I'm a novice, (Ubuntu 10.something I tried to call but they say everything was okay and I keep telling the Comcast lady I had Ubuntu, but apparently she insisted I had Windows. I thought they were not very smart, so I gave up on them.
I am a Ubuntu novice who recently shifted completely to Ubuntu 10.04 from Windows 7 on my Dell Inspiron Mini.
1. I am able to connect to the internet ('Wired') at home but when i plug in the internet cable at work it is not connecting. It gives me the message 'Unplugged, you are now disconnected'.
2. I tried installing the Wicd network manager. Even though there are wireless networks in range it doesnt show me the wireless networks (like it used to show in wiindows).
I have read through a long list of commands in the forums of commands to be executed and executed them all but couldnt connect. Is there anything basic that I am overlooking?
I thought that wired network should work once I plug in a network cable irrespective of the place. How come I am unable to connect to the network at work? I used to have a windows 7 partition and the net connected plug and play when i was in the windows side. I dont want to install Windows just for the internet at work again.
I am the new user to LQ. I am not able to download anything from internet. And I am using ubuntu10.04. It is saying W: Failed to fetch [URL] ...untu9_i386.deb Could not connect to 172.20.0.100:8080 (172.20.0.100). - connect (113: No route to host)
This happened when I am trying to install c++ and I think there is some problem in connecting to the internet. I set proxy server address and port number in System->preferences->Network proxy settings. I think I have set the proxy settings properly. And it is working fine in win XP.
