Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Get Wired Or Wireless To Work
Sep 9, 2010
I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 twice on two different laptops that had wireless cards that weren't working until I sudo apt-get update(d) them. After that, the wireless cards seem to miraculously work. But I was able to download them because they had working ethernet cards.
I'm working on a new laptop (Dell Inspiron 1150). I installed Ubuntu 9.10 like normal but I could not get a wired connection. I plugged in directly to my modem and it still cannot connect at all. It says that Auto eth0 is available, but it tries to connect but can't seems to make it. I downgraded to 9.04 to see if there was any changes, and there aren't. The same problem persists.
when i'm connected with wired (eth0) to my access point vpn connection connect flawless but when connect with wireless (eth2) to the same access point vpn connection failed i don't know whats the deal. i try disable eth0 (ifconfig eth0 down). it's disabled now but vpn connection still didn't work
I recently installed ubuntu 11.04 after trying 10.10 for a while and never had to deal with wireless seeing as I always had it hooked up. but Now I am running it on my new laptop which has a Ralink RT5390 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter, and I am truly stumped on how to get linux to recognize it. Do I have to install a driver?.. plus, my laptop has the on/off toggle switch assigned to an 'fn' key, so it easily toggles on/off in Windows, but not in ubuntu.
I have recently bought a new laptop for this purpose. It is a Toshiba L555D-103. It was pre installed with Windows 7 (64 bit). I have now installed Ubuntu 9.10 (32 bit). It works perfectly when wired. But it does not when I try it wireless. It did work wirelessly with Windows 7, and I have many more both stationary and laptops working through the router, so I do not think the router is the problem.I am guessing that there are no drivers for the wireless to function, but I am not sure. I am guessing that there are no drivers for the Ethernet card ?
I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 1410 notebook running Windows 7 home edition. I installed Ubuntu 2.3 and my wireless and network LAN connection is not working. I saw on a link in this forum, someone was having similar problem. However, when i tried the solution that was recommended/suggested to the person, it did not work for me.
what I can do to get my wireless and wired connection to work?
Everything seems to be fine while she is connected via Wireless. When she plugs in the wired connection a problem occurs, it seems that every SSL Site and/or encrypted Website cannot be shown on her Notebook, for example shopping at Amazon.com. The Problem does not persist the whole time, sometimes it works for a few seconds and you are able to fill your cart.
Other Informations: The Connection has been tested with Windows 7 and with Ubuntu (USB-Live-Stick Lucid)... no difference.
Is it possible that her Hardware is not running correctly? What should we do next?
Tomorrow we want to reset the computer to factory default status.
Are there any possibilities of testing a SSL Connection using the Terminal?
today i installed ubuntu 10.10 on my hp mini 210 netbook. previously i had ubuntu netbook remix running and had no problem accessing the internet both wired and wireless; however, since installing 10.10 i have been searching for a solution for the last six hours but have been unable to get either to work.
as far as hardware is concerned i have a broadband bcm4313 802.11 network controller and am running through a linksys router which i know to be working because i have 4 other computers connected to it all with internet access. i checked ifconfig and a lo conection was listed but no eth0. i also tried downloading a broadband tar.gz driver but dont have any packages to build it and cant get any since the computer has no internet. i assume wired is easiest to setup so lets start there even though i use wireless 90% of the time. im new to linux so please dont expect me to know any terminal commands.
As of now, my internet works fine when connected with an ethernet cable.The problem is it doesnt seem like my wireless is working at all.The led light is orange, (its usually blue when it connects) and I cannot see my home dsl network.Is thereany specific troubleshooting steps I should take?HP dv6000 laptopwireless card: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Server. I can't get my Wireless Card & Wired Card to work at the same time. My interfaces file is incorrect, when I comment out 1 of the interfaces the other works. I have attached my interfaces file.
I am fairly new to linux and I just bought a new computer. I have a dell inspiron N4010 and I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on it. I then was unable to connect with a wired connection or wireless. I am sure this is a driver issue I just don't know how to get the proper drivers. If I put my mouse over the wireless icon it says networking disabled. But the switch to enable networking is on the keyboard
I have just setup Ubuntu on my Dell Laptop a Lattitude C640 with a 3Com 3c905C Tornado Wifi Card. Well the wired and wireless do not work. They try to connect then bang no connection. I would be able to make some headway I think but I have no basic skills with Ubuntu. I have mastered how to get info from the terminal but how the heck to you edit a file? How do you get to that stage?
I just started having a problem with my 10.04 laptop a few days ago, maybe Thursday, last week. When the computer is plugged into my home network (standard 192.168.1.1 sort of IPs) it works fine, but when I try to connect to my work network (130.15.90.XX) I am unable to pick up an IP. The router in my office is working fine, all the windows boxes can connect.
I've also noticed that when the computer is plugged in at work the notification icon for the networking indicates it is looking for a wireless connection (rather than the normal up/down arrows), even if wireless is deactivated
I can set a static IP in /etc/network/interfaces and everything works, so it seems to be a DHCP problem?
I'm running Natty and trying to troubleshoot my ethernet problem. An old laptop worked fine (including the ethernet) until a few days ago when we had a lightning strike relatively nearby. It appears power went out briefly or there was a spike (all hardware, except the DSL modem/NIC, had surge protection). The machine works fine now... except the network. I've run lshw -c network and it's showing "network: UNCLAIMED". ifconfig shows only the loopback and no eth0 at all. I've tried: ifup/ifdown, rebooting, live booting Natty off a USB drive, and tried on a network I know works... all to no avail. One interesting bit of info is that I can see a MAC address when I view the 'network connections' via the applet in top panel.
Am I reasonable to conclude the ethernet port got fried by the lightning? Any pearl of wisdom is welcome.
I just got an iPhone 4 and cannot get wired usb tethering to work. I had the same problem with my old phone, but I was able to wifi tether it without jailbreaking and don't want to have to jailbreak to tether (I don't mind if it is connected via cable, in fact I prefer it).
In both cases, though gnome network manager connects to the phone, and though the phone shows a current tethering connection, the ubuntu system (10.04 Lucid) is not able to load any web pages, despite showing a wired connection, and despite the fact that connection information on this wired connection seems complete (even with an ip address from the iphone and as it did with my old phone). It seems as if there is likely some simple setting that prevents me from using a usb source, though that is a guess.
I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on a VM Server 2.02 with a Win7 32 bit host. When the host is wired into my network, the Guest (Ubuntu) has internet conductivity. However when the host is connected via Wireless, the Guest Does not have any internet connectivity. The VM Network connection is set to Bridged.
in short : installed 9.10 on a dell inspiron 600m which has a broadcom bcm4401 ethernet and an intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B mini PCI. At this point, i'm not too picky about which one works (meaning neither of them currently work). nm-tool seems to pick up on both : the broadcom (eth0) is using the b44 driver, State is unavailable; the intel (eth1) is using the ipw2100 driver, it's State is disconnected.
i have encryption turned off, and the wireless sees a number of AP's (including mine).
i'm jumping off the good ship m$ and determined to make this work!
I just did a fresh install of ubuntu studio 10.04 and I can not connect to either a wired or wireless network. The In Network Tools the IPv4 IP address is 127.0.0.1. It is plugged into a network giving out DHCP IP's. Both wired and wireless were working on ubuntu 9. I have tried to bring eth0 up in the terminal but it did not give an error or anything. It it running on a Dell Latitude D820 laptop.
I dualboot Win7 and Ubuntu 10.04 for quite a long time now with no problems.... but now wireless works perfect on Win7, but I can't even connect Ubuntu with a direct wired connection.... ubuntu connects to the actual Linksys Wireless router just fine, but just won't take the internet, and I've tried two different Wireless cards.this all started (I dunno if its relevant or not) when I put in a new TV tuner, which I obviously took out right away. But the problem is still there. I don't think its the card, I'm pretty sure its just some kind of setting that I've messed up or something because when I connect to the network its near 100%.
I'm running Lucid 10.04 on a Dell Studio 15. I first noticed it today, but it could have been happening for a couple of days. I get no IP address for my wired connection when running ifconfig. Wireless is connecting perfectly. Normally when I start up both wired and wireless connect and get a local IP address like 192.168.1.11*. Additionally, the router has a slowly blinking light corresponding to this connection, which is different from other good connections like my printer which has a solid light on. Here is output from running route -n:

I have recently developed a problem with my computer connecting to the internet which has totally stumped me and is currently forcing my to use windows much to my frustration. I am using ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop. My wireless and wired network connections will not connect. They are all present in the menu and i can click on them but the connection tries to connect and then just times out and fails to connect. Everything still works fine in windows Vista. The more confusing thing is i tried some live disks to see if they would work but they all did exactly the same thing including a live disk of ubuntu 9.10 which used to work perfectly and live disks of openSUSE 11.4 and Mint 10. I struggling to tell if this could be a hardware problem or not. The fact that the live disks wouldn't work suggests a hardware problem but the fact that Vista still works totally throws that argument. I have looked all over these forums and elsewhere and have found some similar ish problems but non seem to have the severity of this one as all of those seem to be wireless only problems. The only thing that i was doing at the time this started was i had just set up a new secondary user account but i suspect that may be coincidental.
We finally got internet in our apartment in China, but my husband was the only one home when the guy came to set it up (on his windows machine).
He connects by plugging in, then clicking a desktop icon labeled "Broadband Connection" where a box pops up with a username, a password box, and some buttons, one of which says "connect".
I am trying to figure out how to set this up on my netbook so that I can use the internet at home too. I have a feeling that even if I had been home when the setup guy came, he wouldn't have had a clue what to do with mine anyway.
On the WinXP machine: Connection Properties state that this is a PPPoE connection, with TCP/IP, QoS, and Deterministic Network Enhancer all checked. Under the security tab, unsecured passwords are allowed.
I have a HP Mini running Ubuntu Desktop 10.04, and I cannot get a wired connection to work. My network card is "Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)", and I have the restricted drivers for the card installed. Wireless works fine, though.
I recently tried out OpenDNS on my wired connection, however after it was slower than faster, I tried going back to the original settings that the connection had (so basically to Automatic DHCP).
For some reason the connection wouldn't connect again. So I thought I'd try deleting that connection and creating a new one, but this still doesn't work. When I try to connect using NetworkManager it just does the 'loading' icon for 30ish seconds then says disconnected.
My wireless still works fine however.
I'd very grateful as i'm worried i've messed up the ethernet port and I need it for when I got University in a couple of weeks
