Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Update And Access Certain Webpages On 10.10
Feb 14, 2011
When the installation had finished I had no Internet access on the computer.Or..it's not exactly NO Internet access - I am able to enter Google (at least that's the only one I've managed to enter - And yes, I've tried more than one..). Furthermore, I am not able to update the system..
The computer is running Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit
I've attached the output of 'ifconfig -a' Other than that, I don't know what information will be relevant, so please ask for whatever is needed to (hopefully) get this to work
I have internet from KabelBW (cable modem which doesnt require any username,password,dns,mac...) they gave me a cisco modem, I connected it with my asus router and it has been working fine since today! when I woke up I turned on my lap top and loged in skype, but I couldnt open google, then I tried yahoo..nothing! I havent made and changes yesterday! I dont know what is wrong! I am new to ubuntu and I dont know what to do! when I connect directly to modem I have internet it works good, but when I connect through my (LAN or Wireless) router I cant view web pages. I have tried to google for the answer but all the answers are for windows OS versions! I tried to restart lap top, and the router 100 times but nothing!
Use Firefox 3.0.7 Use GNU Wget 1.11.4 I have a question about downloading web pages. If I download with web page complete will I be able to open the pages without being on line, or will there be some pages that I will still need to log in for. If a web browser is not sufficient, is there some command I can use with Wget to accomplish this?
I'm using a wired DSL broadband connection on ubuntu 10.04,the problem is i am unable to see certain web pages in my firefox and chrome as well... some web pages aren't loading at all.. but these webpages loads in windows. eg of pages not loading [URL]
How to can I host my own domain by myself for free?I've installed phpmyAdmin, ehcp, filezilla, mySql, mySql query browser, proftpd, gforge, wordpress, activeperl.I'm not sure either how to make a domain name for my IP address and how to use dynamic DNS.
1) OK, I've got to admit that I'm a newbie in networking. 2) I'm lost with tons of different programs, I don't know where to start from now, there are many methods. I have made many user names and passwords... 3) What to do? I don't want a local web page, All I want is get my web page on Internet where anyone else can visit it.
I had actually the same problem in 10.10, but I was patiently hoping that 11.04 will fix it for me. At the moment it's facebook(nothing will load) and lifehacker(mainpage will load,but further on no news will load) First of it loads facebook after fresh install, but when i closed firefox, and reopened it, it won't load. I pinged facebook.com and it's working:S Chrome for instance loaded facebook atm, but didnt load lifehacker news aswell. Altho Windows on same machine will do it perfectly. I would like to use 100% ubuntu, but its not possible if some essential webpages won't load
I have Ubuntu 9.10 and I am trying to get my ALFA network adapter to work. It shows a few wireless locations including my brother who lives beside me. He is going to let me use his internet on my laptop. His connection is opened and I can connect to it fine... but no sites load... I've tried about 4 other open networks that I picked up and the same thing... it sometimes loads the first page but then thats it... This is suppose to be the best network adapter on the market for under $100. I have a 5dBi ant and a 2.4ghz 6dBi ant.
Oh yea, I've tired this on two other ubuntu 9.10 desktops and 1 laptop and get the same thing... I am however able to connect to my wireless router and browser the internet... but I will not have internet much longer
I haven't used linux in years, but decided to try out Ubuntu. I'm a total newb at this but it has been pretty easy to transition over from Vista. I have had no problem with it for months, and then all of a sudden my internet doesn't work. It says that it is connected to my router but i can't connect to the internet. Typical troubleshooting has not helped. Most advice I have gotten was to try installing the NDISwrapper, but Ubuntu won't let me install it without internet access (that, or the package I tried to use from my USB is messed up??).
So last night I decided to install Ubuntu 10.10 using the WUBI installer, everything went well and it installed, but there was one problem. I didn't have any wireless networking options, so I scavenged this forum using google and came across on how to fix it using System -> Adminstrator -> Additional Drivers. I reset my laptop(Dell Inspiron 14R N4010 I believe) and to my success, I was able to join my network. So I took out the cable(The wired connection has worked since fresh install) and it didn't work... I updated using Synaptic Package Manager and restarted, hoping it would work, but it didn't.
The wired internet connection for my notebook works fine after starting up Fedora. Webpages load quickly. But if I close the notebook for as little as 10 minutes, webpages won't load at all, even though NetworkManager still shows that there's an internet connection.
Disconnecting and reconnecting doesn't fix the problem, and neither does logging out and logging back in. Restarting the computer does fix the problem. This problem doesn't occur with Windows 7 on the same machine.
I should have poked around a little harder but I remember that I was experimenting with an ssh proxy when a the hotel. Apparently when I setup the proxy settings in Chrome I must have clicked the "set system wide" button and set every browser to browse through the proxy. I even had to enter a password to change that setting. I thought I changed it back after experimenting but apparently I did not. Today I just started my Ubuntu 9.04 laptop to find that I can not browse web pages. I tried multiple browsers including Chrome, Firefox and Epiphany. Each one gives me the same error message:
Epiphany: "www.google.com" dropped the connection. The server dropped the connection before any data could be read. The server may be busy or you may have a network connection problem. Try again later.
Firefox: Connection Interrupted. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading. The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection. Please try again.
Chrome: This webpage is not available. The webpage at [URL] might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
So now most of you are ready to ask me to check my connection using ifconfig etc. But here is the rub: I can download updates, install software using apt-get, ssh, scp, download files with wget, ping web sites and browse the net using the text browser Links (so pretty much everything else works.) I cant figure out what has happened. The last time I used my laptop was this past weekend in a hotel using their wireless and then connecting using a captive portal. And everything worked fine.
My only theory is the hotels captive portal might have messed up something but what that is is beyond me. I tried using both wired and wireless connections and still the same thing. Re booting does nothing. So in order to surf the web I have to use my virtual box Windows XP image. So here I am typing this message in Firefox on windows XP in a virtual machine on my Ubuntu laptop that for some reason will not let me view websites.
On a school network the Windows and Mac computers connect to the internet with no problem. The Ubuntu(10.04) computers are connected and work on the internal network but have major issues going out of the building. I can get to one or two webpages to open and the connection dies...Server not found. Ping within the network and there are no lost packages, if I ping outside many lost packages.
We are using SonicWall and think it could be blocking...but why only Ubuntu? This is the same behavior for Firefox and Seamonkey. It's also the same for the thin/fat clients and standalone units. I did try a fresh install with no effect. The internet actually works on the one machine with ubuntu 9.10. I brought a machine home and it connected to the internet with no problem.
Two things I can think of that would of caused this are: 1- we keep getting windows about missing applets, someone may have clicked delete 2- I connected a server to run fat clients w/ LTSP and discovered my server and the schools were handing out the same ip's.
I have installed F10 x86_64 on my laptop with the intent of having a few VM guests under qemu/kvm to run test machines for my code while at a week long class. At home, hard wired to the LAN, my DomU's connect the internet just fine. Perhaps not exactly the way i want, but it worked. Now I am at the class and I've had to connect via wireless network. My DomUs CAN resolve URLs to IPs, but I cannot connect to the web to view any basic web pages.
Attached are screeshots showing my #ifconfig and #route
I just installed Debian with the latest testing iso, and I'm having problems connecting to the web via browser. I can ping hostnames (i.e. google.com, debian.org, etc.) from the terminal and it resolves just fine, but if I try to load a page from Iceweasel or Epiphany it says the page won't load because it can't resolve the hostname. Can someone tell me what I'm missing?the detail that I'm running amd64. I've checked iptables and found no entries, and for good measure I flushed it to be certain. I also checked resolv.conf but that looked normal, just a nameserver entry pointing to my home router. I'm new to Debian, but have used Linux for years, and I'm genuinely stumped. I'm sure the solution will smack me in the head for its simplicity, but nonetheless I need at least a shove in the right direction.
I managed to configure my W890i phone to get access to internet through an ubuntu-based computer. It's very easy to use the phone to give internet access to the computer, but the opposite is quite more tricky. For that I've done the following
----On the phone---
-Set the USB network option to "through computer", so that the phone uses the computer's internet connection and not the opposite.
-Decide and set "Shared Network" parameters: user, pasword and workgroup.
-In "conectivity-> internet connection" set "allow local network" to "yes"
----On Ubuntu 10.04---
-Install samba, samba-client, smbfs, smbclient, firestarter and dhcp3-server
-Configure Samba (System-> Administration-> Shared folders): same workgroup as in the phone, add new user (the phone), passwd this new user. In my case the user was called "w890i" and the password given was the same.
-Once the phone is connected to the computer through USB (then select "phone mode"), a new connection appears in NetworkManager: usb0.The aim is to create a shared network that gives internet access to this device. Edit the IPv4 parameters of this new connection, set them to Manual and give an IP adress (192.168.0.1) and a subnet mask (255.255.255.0); the rest of the fields are left empty.Connect this network.
-Set firestarter to use dhcp3: sudo ln -sf /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server /etc/init.d/dhcpd
-Launch firestarter and follow the wizard. Set "allow internet shared connection", choose the device for the primary internet access, and then the device for the shared network (usb0). Then change the settings for firestarter: activate DHCP for local network, set IP to the one we gave before (192.168.0.1).
-Open dhcp3-server config file sudo gedit /etc/default/dhcp3-server And set INTERFACES="usb0"
-Set the policies of firestarter: in incoming connections, allow connections from the IP adress given to the phone (192.168.0.1). Then add rules for the ports that need to be open for this connection. I opened HTTP, HTTPS, SMB, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, IMAPS, DHCP for all the connections in the local network.
-Apply policies and start the firewall.
After all this, the phone can access the internet through the computer. Two problems appeared:
1. I couldn't get access to https sites, like webmails. The phone gave a "communication error". But then I tried with Opera instead of the browser built in the phone's firmware, and I could finally get to https sites.
2. I couldn't retrieve mail, neither POP nor IMAP nor IMAPS. I thought it was a firmware problem again, and I tried out several mobile phone email clients written in java, but none of them worked.
So this is at the moment the problem. If I connect from the phone to the internet directly through 3G, the email clients work for all my accounts. I don't think it's a firewall problem, because the ports are opened for this connection
I connected my laptop running with Ubuntu 11 in the LAN but I couldn't access internet.But I could ping to the other computers connected in the LAN. I tried the same thing with windows 7 in the same laptop and I could access internet.
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 x64bit and am having a problem with Firefox. I'm currently dual booting windows 7 and Ubuntu. My net works perfectly on Windows 7 and even on Ubuntu I was able to download a NVIDIA driver and 193MB worth of updates for Ubuntu. I just can't seem to load any webpages on Firefox. I have DHCP enabled but I also tried a static IP address but still had no success. I also tried adjusting my proxy settings in Firefox cycling through no proxy, Auto-detect proxy settings etc. but i still could not load any pages.
The error message is always "The connection has timed out. The server at ubuntu.com is taking too long to respond." I've tried other websites and can't load them. As a point of interest I was able to access my routers web config page.
I've run into problems in some websites where Chrome, Chromium, Firefox and Konqueror will not render the pages correctly (yes, I've installed and tried them all). I've tried on three different computers with dual boot Windows and Ubuntu and get the same results...If I boot into windows, I can browse the pages with no problems, however, in Ubuntu these pages just hang at certain points...Is there some setting I can adjust to improve web performance?[URL]Orbrowse by location, a warning sign appears, click 'agree' and wait endlessly...Why would these pages work correctly on Windows, but not in Ubuntu?I HATE having to boot into Windows, so if I can avoid it I will!
I'm trying to create an archive of a websites images because it tends to go offline now and then. The problem is, when going to the image in full view, it opens it on a php webpage. I've tried using 'wget -m -A.jpg' but it only saves the thumbnails from the menu page instead of the actual images.
I just recently had to have Ubuntu installed on my computer, and of course, the Web Browser they put on here is Firefox, which I love, however...... Before I had Ubuntu, I had Windows, but due to a problem with a nasty virus, and then not having the original product code for Windows, I couldn't get Windows back on my computer so they put lovely Ubuntu on it. Now, I am a Manager at a hotel, and I have to be able to view my hotel security cameras from home when I am not at work. It is an IP web address and it is not compatible with Firefox. My question is this. Is there any plugin out there that would make webpages that are non compatible with Firefox able to be viewed?
Had occasion to visit a user group meeting to resolve partition concern. While there installed 10.04, good install, but it was WiFi connection so I waited to get home to update. Receiving a security error msg both for update and e-mail set up. I am wireless if that makes difference.
I have an error message when trying to open Update Manager with the following message:
"Could bot initialize the package information. E:Encountered a section with no package header. Eroblem with merger lists/VAR/lib/gbi archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu.com_dists_natty_min_bina ry I386_packages E:the package lists or status file lists could not be passed or opened.
As the title says i updated my system which then needed a reboot. I also installed Mixxx djing software to try it out. So i thought id just restart the system. Usually when i boot into my desktop wireless automatically can connect to my router but not this time, wired only for now... i know theres tons of wireless issue threads but some more experienced users will be able to get straight to the point and run through some diagnostics with me.
now when i key the server ip on my 2nd pc it brings up the It Works default page (Apache2), but when i visit a subfolder which has wordpress-mu installed in i get a 403 forbidden error... how to i enable myself to view this particular folder? here's the .htaccess file on the wordpress mu folder:
So I have a laptop that I installed 9.10 on recently and for a bit everything was going fine. I have done a few updates over the course of the past week and for a couple days now I have got a huge problem. I am unable to view web pages without having to refresh them over and over until it finally loads. I thought this issue was only with Firefox and I researched the issue and ended up disabling ipv6 in FF. To no avail.
Synaptic Package Manager also will not connect to the internet. It will receive the list of updates but as soon as I click install it sticks on Downloading File 1 of XX. Since it wasn't limited to Firefox and there is debate on whether ipv6 slows down connectivity, I have disabled it system wide. Also to no avail. I have confirmed this to be so with wired and wireless connections to my router.
I just installed Ubuntu, and the Wifi works just fine - E.g. downloading updates works like a charm But when I try to access a page in Firefox or Chrome they just keep loading the webpage, but never show me anything For the record, I'm using 10.04 32-bit. Don't know how must more information to give..But from this, does anyone have an idea, on how to fix it?
I am new to ubuntu netbook remix. I have recently installed it on my emachines em250 netbook and my wireless is connected to my router but when I go to view a web page it says it cannot be found. I am unable to view web pages unless I am connected to my router via ethernet cable.
I guess I am getting 'old' but the other day I was looking for the 'magnifying glass' to look over detailed work. I am looking for a decent 'magnifying glass' for look web pages and such. I loaded Orca but was turned off by the 'machine voice' feature. I noticed Gnome-mag in my files list but that does not seem to work for me?!?
