I've installed Fedora 13 on a Toshiba Satellite A40 laptop, and am trying to get the wired ethernet connection to work. Network Manager says it is connected, and the connection details (DHCP assigned IP, gateway, dns servers) all seem correct. However, I cannot browse the internet. Checking for updates fails also. I have tried pinging various sites and the results are inconsistent - sometimes it works, sometimes it times out with "unknown host". [URL]... I've searched around for similar issues and tried disbaling ipv6 both in Fedora and Firefox, but this doesn't help either.
Background infoMy laptop (MySN MG6.c) is dual-booted with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.10, and connected to the internet through a router (Digitus DN-11004-O), which is set-up to use DHCP. The internet connection works fine under Windows, and my previous laptop, which also ran Ubuntu 9.10, had no problems connecting to the internet through that router.The network adapter is an Atheros AR8131 PCI-E (also detected as Attansic under Ubuntu)stem infoResults from running various diagnostics (I have removed the output that relate to the wireless connection, as I don't use it):

Okay, a couple of weeks ago I was running 10.04, got an auto update that needed a firefox restart, so rather than restart, I just shutdown the computer for the weekend. When I booted the computer on Monday it would find sites (www.google.com, start.ubuntu.com) but it wouldn't download the necessary items to load the page. Now I have a windows laptop sitting next to the ubuntu box and it was online with no issues, so I know it wasn't the connection itself. So I decided that the update messed up the system so I downloaded 10.10 and installed that and ran that all last week.
On Friday I got a system update that required a firefox restart, so I ran firefox for the day and decided that since it was friday, I would just shutdown the computer and reboot on Monday.Well now Monday is here and now I again have sloooowww internet, to the point that URL.. times out and won't come up. I have tried doing a traceroute on both machines and the windows box gets all the way to www.google.com, but the ubuntu box gets about halfway there and then gets no response. I am at a loss, I don't want to reinstall every week. I did try to reboot and run the previous version of 10.10 that shows in the boot menu, but that does the same thing. One thing I did notice is that the broadcast ip is different than the machine IP, don't know enough to know if this is a problem.
we are trying to install this NIC Rosewill RC-400 Chipset RTL8169S-32 in Ubuntu 9.04 we downloaded the drivers from Rosewill website (For kernel 2.4.x and 2.6.x V 3.1) but when we follow the instruction in the readme file and do make clean modules and error comes out
So I went do realteak downloaded latest available drivers that seems to be were release yesterday did same command and same error So I made only make and it went fine did then make clean modules and went fine so made make install, depmod -a and modprobe r8169 verify int was up and getting correct ip from router but I'm not able to access the internet or ping any IP address

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.
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 just installed Ubuntu 11.04 desktop on my desktop in dual boot with Windows 7.
Heres my problem, I am unable to connect to the Internet even though my wired Ethernet connection says it is connected normally. The wierd thing about this is that I also have a wireless card in my desktop and when I connect through that I am able to connect to the Internet. I am connecting to a router that is functioning as a repeater to my main router/cable modem. I have tried to solve this myself but am having no luck. Ironically, earlier today suddenly my ethernet connection worked for a few minutes without me modifying anything.
The output of some terminal commands are below.
However a pint to that ip address (my router) is successful.
Hosts.allow and hosts.deny are both fine (not blank but no entries)
I have an valid account,and I used pppoe-setup to set the dial correctly.After the configuration,I typed "ifup ppp0",nothing wrong happens(no news is good news?).Then I typed "pppoe-status",it said I've connected to the internet . I opened firefox,updated my system through yum ,they all said I haven't connected to the network!!!I've formated my harddisk and reinstall my system,but the problem is still.
I have installed fedora 11 64 bit on a new computer. I have no problems accessing the computers on my local network, but can not get past the gateway. The gateway is running windows XP with IP address 192.168.0.1 and is named "internet". When I boot the new computer in windows, there is no problem. Here is the output of some commands I saw in other posts with similar problems:
I installed Fedora 13 on my laptop today after deleting a badly screwed up Windows XP partition. Everything installed smoothly even my Broadcom drivers but I can't seem to figure out how to get Firefox to access the web with a URL.
I can ping Google, and can get to it in Firefox if I use the IP address from the ping, but going to [url] in Firefox will give me an error message about not being able to find the server at the web address. I was also able to update from the terminal with yum update just fine. I've tried searching Google for some answers, and maybe I just can't phrase my query right, but I found nothing that I could use to try and fix my problem.
I've attached a HardInfo report which I hope could be useful if you need to know what my hardware is (an HP Pavilion zv5000 laptop).
After upgrading to F14 from F10, we seem to have access to the internet from our console, and no one is able to connect to server as well. We have static IP from comcast. And all the configurations on the eth0 looks fine. We are able to browse, if we set the server to dynamic ip. Also, we are able to connect another PC (laptop) with the static ip configuration, and browse fine. Read through many messages on this forum, cant get any clues,
I have a work network of about 20 boxes most of which are running Windows 7 and one of them is a file server using linux and another is Windows server 2003. Now the local IP is distributed by the router, and no regulation of internet access is done by any of the servers.What I need to do is restrict internet access to select domains, which would probably need DHCP through linux(I think, not really sure), and I need something simple like a 'blabla.conf' file with the allowed websites that I can edit. need to know how to regulate IP addresses through the linux box (all details if possible, I never tried to do that before), and how to restrict internet access also through linux.
I just got a new power supply in my old desktop, and installed ubuntu on it. I've got three NICs in there (for a later project), and when I connect my cable modem to any one of the NICs, then little connection triangle-spinny-thing in the upper-right tries to connect. But it never gets all the way connected.
I have a problem connecting to the internet using Ubuntu 9.10 . But the same works fine in Ubuntu 9.04.. First I thought it was my hardware problem and asked my friend(also was using ubuntu 9.04) to try ubuntu 9.10 but he too failed to connect....
I have an wired ADSL Modem given by my Service Provider. When I switch on my modem the router gets connected but it cannot connect me to internet...
I recently did a fresh install of 10.04 from 9.04 and since then I am unable to use Internet. However my ethernet connection is working fine, as I am able to login to modem and check configuration. I reinstalled twice, downloaded fresh 64-bit & 32-bit and also followed kernel update steps as in few forum posts, but no joy. The firefox is throwing an error "The connection has timed out". My internet connection is working fine as I am able to use my Windows Laptop to post this message. I checked system > administration > hardware drivers and couldn't find any unsupported hardwares.I had similar issue when upgrading to 9.10, hence stayed on 9.04. When I looked at LTS image, I couldn't resist and cleaned up 9.04.
I have been using lucid ubuntu 64 bit on this pc for months with no problem till yesterday. I noticed yesterday that eth0 was no longer being set up on boot and so internet is not there now. I am currently on the internet using karmic ubuntu.
I'm thinking an update with aptitude? What can I do in lucid to get my networking working? I tried booting into recovery mode and repairing packages but my pc could not get on the net to check the packages.
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 see from the netspeed applet that my computer is downloading stuff almost constantly. Not a whole lot, 8b - 700b per second while apparently doing nothing. Some of this is just responding to broadcasts from the router, but surely not all. I would like to be able to determine which programs are accessing the internet over that wireless card, with a view to cutting down on my bandwidth usage. Is there a program that can tell me which ones are doing what at a given time?
I am building a CarPC which I'd like to have wireless internet access on. I have Verizon phone service so if there is a Verizon air card (not wireless card, an air card so I can have constant access without having to search for hot spots) that would work with Fedora 10 I would be very happy. I don't really know where to start and I can't find too much on Google, so I'm just looking for what options are available.
Fedora 11 is completely unable to access the internet for some reason, and after some troubleshooting, I've determined the problem to my Motorola 2210 DSL modem. I know my connection is working fine, as it works perfectly in both Vista and 7. I've tried things such as grep 'Ethernet' /var/log/dmesg, filling in the information into the network settings manually, to no avail.
Bridged successfully but cannot access the Internet.I installed VMware in my Fc13,and installed XP sp3 in the VMware.I can access the Internet in XP,I set the network as Bridged with Fc13,but Fc cannot open a page,but I ping google.com,it can display: Code: Pinging google.com [188.8.131.52] with 32 bytes of data: then nothing.I still cannot access the Internet in my Fc13.
I tried to preupgrade to f14 and cancel it after some time. Now, I am facing a problem that I cannot access internet from mobile broadband; but I can access net while i am connected via ethernet or wireless. I have cleared preupgrade files with
Quote: yum clean all; yum remove @preupgrade
$ uname -rs Linux 184.108.40.206-56.fc13.i686.PAE
It can detect my HUawei modem and creating an IP as well. But no Internet. Can you tell me the reason?
