Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Connected (wired) To Internet?
Jan 8, 2010
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.
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):
Code: $ uname -a Linux valyria 2.6.31-14-generic-pae #48-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 16 15:22:42 UTC 2009 i686
I have a wireless network (192.168.1.0) that's bridged to the Internet and a wired one (192.168.0.0) that's only local. When I am connected to both networks, Natty wants to route my Internet traffic through the wired, local-only one.
Can I make it automatically "just work", so that the right network is chosen for Internet traffic? Otherwise, what's the workaround?
I have an Ubuntu laptop connected by wifi to a Cisco router and a desktopUbuntu PC conneted by wire to the same router. I would like, if it's possible to connect them without using the Internet (I mean what I want it's not just communicate between them using SSH over the Internet, for instance, but also communicate without connecting to the Internet). My DSL connection it's 4 Mb/s while my router can work up to 100 Mb/s so I would like to take advantage of these 100 Mb/s to transfer files between the two computers instead of using 4 MB/s
I have installed Linux for the first time on an old Gateway purchased from work. The system seems up and running, but I can't get connected to my wireless or the wired network. I have tried using the network manager, but it isn't working. I have tried reinstalling Fedora 12 I have the following LSUSB and LSCPI output.
This may be more suited for the networking forums, but I figured Community Cafe would be well rounded enough for someone to tell me if this is even possible (with minimal configuration that is).There are a few places I travel where I only have a wired connection to the Internet (no wifi), but when this happens is there a simple way to create an adhoc network so wireless devices can route through my computer and to the network? Reason I'm asking is I'm thinking of getting an iPad or iPod Touch which have wireless connections, but in the cases where my laptop is using a wired ethernet connection and the wireless card isn't used, I'd like to create an adhoc wireless network that'll let such wireless devices work.
I seem to have is trying to get the internet to work. I can go to ..... ect but when I try to run playonlinux it says you do not seem to be connected to the internet, please post if you have anything useful, as I said I am very new to linux so be as detailed as possible.
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 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.
This is my second day with ubuntu on a dell mini 10v with broadcom wireless card. I hooked up to a wired connection and ubuntu installed the drivers for the broadcom card.When I put the cursor over the wireless icon on the desktop it shows the name of my wireless connection,active,and my ip address but when I open firefox I get a "server not found". I'm confused as what to put in the boxes for ssid,mode,bssid,mac address,and mtu under network connections. I've tried pretty much every conceivable method at my disposal,even went on my d-link router settings and nothing has worked.I do not have windows installed,using 10.4
I can connect to my router but no web pages will load etc... I can connect my phone to the router and USB tether it to my laptop and everything works fine. I can also connect to my neighbors router and everything works fine.
I have tried put my routers IP in /etc/resolve.conf but to no avail. I also tried putting 22.214.171.124.
Edit: Toshiba Sattelite A215 laptop (RS690 wireless card?) and a Linksys router.
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.
I want to set a up a network of inter connected pcs, for example on pc A linux is installed.now pcs B, C , D, etc should connect to A and do there work, for example A want to do C/C++, development, whereas B wants to do some PERL development or whatever, this is just an example, 2 different pc users might do same work also, and the connecting pcs may have Windows or linux or bsd.OSes now what h/w or s/w is required and what steps are required to set up this network, main pc would be connected to internet and also connected pcs might want to use internet also..have installed opensuse edulife , and use this as PC A for testing.. and I use bridged dsl Broadband connection to connect to internet , by the username and password provided by the ISP, in windows its easy to setup this connection, however not able to do on linux,
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 installed ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop a few days ago and love the OS so far. However, initially i could only get internet connection though an ethernet cord. After much internet searching, i finally figured out how to get wireless internet. Unfortunately, in setting up wireless internet, I no longer have wired internet. The system doesn't seem to recognize my wired internet anymore. I'd like a scenario where i can connect to the internet both wired and wireless.
I've been running ubuntu for about 6 months, so i'm still abit of a newbie at linux but heres what im having issues with:I'm having troubles connecting to the internet on ubuntu, i have no problems connecting on xubuntu on the same machine. I can connect to my network but i cant access the internet on firefox or snaptic or any of that, but the weird thing is i can successfully ping address' in the terminal. I can also connect to my router config page in firefox using 192.168.0.1.
My internet worked perfectly about a month ago on this ubuntu install, so i cant figure out what i did to make it stop working. I think it may have something to do with the/etc/resolv.conf file because it only exists as /etc/resolv.conf.tmp and when i run "sudo dhclient wlan0" (or eth0) it says:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo dhclient wlan0 Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Client V3.1.2 Copyright 2004-2008 Internet Systems Consortium.
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 into my compaq notebook. The problem is that I am not able to connect to my wired broadband internet.
Here are the details of my attempts so far: 1)"ifconfig -a" gave 2 devices eth0 and wlan0. 2)"pppoeconf" was unable to detect any ethernet cards. 3)Each time I plug in the LAN cable , the network icon would say "connecting" and ultimately result in "disconnected.Now in offline mode".My ethernet device is Realtek PCIe RT8101E/RTL102E (rev 02).
I also tried to install the realtek driver though I was not confident whether I did it correct.
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
Hardware: 5 year old Compaq laptop: Presario V4000. - Intel Celeron M Processor 1.3 GHz System: Ubuntu release 10.04 lucid - Kernel Linux 2.6.32-23 - generic - GNOME 2.30.0 Uses a wired connection through a router SEQUENCE OF EVENTS Friday evening - June 2, 2010 Sytem was working OK. Downloaded Ubuntu updates. Put laptop into Suspend mode. Turned off master power at surge protector. about 4 hours later tried to Unsuspend. Could not Unsuspend Pressed power button on laptop for several seconds to shutdown laptop. Saturday morning - June 3, 2010 After Ubunto booted up, launched Firefox. No internet access. File-> showed "Work Offline" checked. Unchecked it, but that didn't fix the problem. Rebooted, and still no internet. Tried an alternate cable (which was working with a desktop Winows XP computer) between router and laptop. Still no internet. Used terminal to ping the IP address of the router - ping unsuccessful.
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
