Ubuntu Networking :: Connected To Internet But Cannot Browse?
Oct 14, 2010
I have installed ubuntu a few times in the past but if I've had to get messy with the command line I bailed. So given that I wanted to set up a home server/media center, I tried win server, but given research had told me that it is easier to accomplish all the features I wanted with Linux I decided the time had come to really see what I'd been missing out on. So what I am looking to accomplish is a full lamp stack, xbmc, samba, mail server, VMWare server, rtorrent, ftp, an probably a few others I have forgot because I can't get to my check list right now. Settled on ubuntu 10.10, had installed it a couple of times while it was still in beta, just to get a feel for it and get everything working so that when it was released I could do a fresh install knowing how to configure everything.
So on Sunday the time came. Everything was going fine until last night, I was installing roundtable webmail and all I came to download something and FireFox can't display any web pages, postfix can't deliver mail. The server can ping local machines but not google.com or another internet site, I can ssh into it an get a remote desktop session via various methods, both either over the local network, or internet. The website is getting served both locally or internet. I just cant seem to make any outbound connections to the outside world.
I have a fresh install of Fedora 13 on my Toshiba Notebook. I am able to connect to the internet but can not browse neither by Ethernet or wireless. I have an Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG wireless card and a Marvell Technology Group LTD 88E8036 PCI-E fast Ethernet card installed. The command ifconfig shows an ip address. I am able to ping by URL and IP address. It does the same with the firewall disabled. I have also disabled the iptable & ip6tables in the services. I have even set fire fox not to use proxy settings. I am just not able to browse at all.
is the following (btw I'm new to linux) - installed f14, connected to WiFi from my home router, started Firefox, and it was not able to open any pageslong with that I successfully updated my system and applications (and even installed new ones) through the same internet connection.Being connected to WiFi on my workplace I am able to browse with firefox, but at home - not...What could be the problem? What additional info should I give?PS. Sorry if the problem was already addressed, I am trying to find the solution on the web - but no success. Also 1-day discussions on ru-net forums were not successful, unfortunately.
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'm connecting to a network via a Belkin F7D1101. The adapter appears to be working fine, as I can see various wireless networks available and I am able to connect to my personal wireless network. The problem is that even though I am connected and have a valid IP, I am unable to browse the Internet. I can't even ping the router!
I initially thought it may be an issue with WPA, but I have installed wpa-supplicant and as a means of testing, I turned off WPA on the router, and the issue still stands.
I just installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu 10.10 on a HP DV2500 laptop. Everything installed as expected but I am having some wireless issues I was hoping somebody could assist me with. I am able to connect to my network via wireless with no issues. However, when I attempt to browse the internet it will not connect to any pages. Obviously when I connect it via CAT 5 all works as expected. Any ideas on how to solve my wireless issues?
From today, I am unable browse internet using Fedora 10. Before this, I was using net in F10 with no problem, F10 was automatically configuring for net settings. But now I cannot connect to internet in F10, but I can connect to internet using windows xp. I have ADSL modem which automatically connects to internet when it is switched on. When I press any site name in Firefox it won't display any thing (in status it shows done).
And even following command not works. Code: ping www.google.com
But following command works fine ( I know yum search for software in repo using internet). I wonder how this commend works, while I cannot browse web. Code: yum search player
(I am completely dependent on linux). One more thing before occurrence of this problem I had installed xmms, xmms-mp2 and xmms-skins. I don't think this created problem.
I'm using FC10 on my box at work. It is behind an anthenticated proxy for internet connection. In Gnome, I configured the Network Proxy through the GUI, as my browsers too.
So I can browse internet pages, install packages thru Add/Remove Software GUI, but I cant do it in the command line, using yum install, for example. Then trying to figure it out, I saw that it cant reach the package mirrors. It isnt a DNS problem, I set the /etc/resolv.conf correctly, as the host command works correclty. I can ping the local pcs on the network too. Firewall is disabled. Below some simple tests:
[rtovo@davinci ~]$ ping mirrors.fedoraproject.org connect: Network is unreachable [rtovo@davinci ~]$ host mirrors.fedoraproject.org mirrors.fedoraproject.org is an alias for wildcard.fedoraproject.org.
A few days ago my wireless windows vista computer internet was running slow so i reset the modem. Then I went on the internet on my ubuntu machine machine and went to www.google.com and couldn't connect to the server so i tried linuxquestions and i couldn't connect but i could ping sites. My wired and wireless windows computers worked fine. So I called Comcast (my ISP) and said it was a router issue. So I looked online and it said to disable IPv6 on firefox so I did but that still didn't work.
I'm using VPNC to connect to a remote cisco network, however I cannot browse the internet after the tunnel establishes. I know this is a DNS issue, as I can ping external address by IP (e.g. google). I can also communicate through the VPN tunnel without trouble.
/etc/resolv.conf gets updated by the VPNC with the remote networks DNS Servers, but I still cannot connect to the internet. I even manually tried to add my local nameserver to the /etc/resolv.conf file, without luck.
Also, just as a side note, I can only establish the tunnel via the command line "vpnc" command. I'm using Fedora 13 with KDE, but knetworkmanager / networkmanager will not establish the tunnel, however I haven't really dug very deep as to why. I've just setup some vpnc config files for loading the various connections manually, as needed.
I am connected to my wireless router (wlan0) i'm also connected to my laptop via cable (eth0) wlan0 has the internet connection, if i disconnect eth0 i can browse internet but if it's connected, i cant eth0 has manual address: 192.168.0.7 wlan: auto (right now:184.108.40.206)
A couple of days ago I Obtained a spare computer and installed fedora 14 on it, just to try it out. I only have experience with microsoft windows so I'm new to this system. The OS seems to work fine but I can't browse the internet with firefox. I'm using a speedtouch 546 v6 modem with adsl(wired). The network manager indicates that the wired connection "auto eth1" is active. The previous OS was windows xp. I was able to browse the internet whit this OS. I removed it because it was crashing all the time (illegal version).
I know this is not a win-doze forum but i always ask my questions here so here goes.I am having what appears to be a DNS problem on a friends laptop. He is running windows XP. I CAN connect to networks and even ping websites but i CANNOT browse in Internet Explorer or FIrefox.
fedora (iptables) eth0 -private :192.168.1.1 eth1 -public : 220.127.116.11 squid proxy 192.168.1.10:3128 my clients range 192.168.2.0/24
how can i make my clients to browse internet only from proxy server my network is NAT 'ed. Please specify a iptable rule to allow internet access for my clients to browse ONLY if they come through proxy server.
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 18.104.22.168.
Edit: Toshiba Sattelite A215 laptop (RS690 wireless card?) and a Linksys router.
In Network Settings in OpenSuse 11.1 while using "Traditional Method with ifup" I am able to set up a box as a server and connect via http over the net BUT Firefox cannot browse. If I switch to "User Controlled with NetworkManager" I can run Firefox but my server is not contactable. How do I do both?
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,
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.
just installed Ubuntu Netbook remix on my acer aspire one, and come across a problem Ive never faced before. Im able to Connect to my router (and access it through the internal ip address) but as soon as i try access anything outside of my network there is nothing!
This i found odd as first i thought it might have just been my Routers problem, but seeing as all my other computers were connected to it with no problems (wired and wireless) I quickly traced the problem back to the laptop.
After this i decided to see if after a simple update would fix the problem. so i connected it up through the Ethernet port once again it connects to the router but no internet! I have tried everything in my knowledge, but with no success!
Often i have an active connection on the tree network with an internet dongle according networkmanager, but ping is not working and firefox and thunderbird also don't have a connection. Skype however is working at that time. (testcall to skype is working) My present solution is to disconnect and connect a couple of times again until i can ping a commonserver on the internet, and then everything is working normal. Many are stating networkmanager is buggy, is this a known bug and is it worked on or do i need to install another program. Has any of you an idea what could be going on and how to solve it, permanently. In the way it's automatically right when connecting.
My dongle is of type: Huawei E 1550 and often i have a normal connection.
I can connect my wlan card to router (gateway) ,but I can't go to internet, pinging my router (and everything else) also falied. Same problem was with knoppix but with help of others i solved it modifing etc/reslove.conf IP address to my gateway (nameserver). At ubuntu resolve.conf seems ok, as there is already IP address of my gateway?
I am connected to my wireless network but can't connect to the internet. I have searched the ubuntu forums for solutions but none seem to work for me. I can post terminal outputs if required (I know that much).
Im using a laptop with a wireless card inside it is a Realtek RTL8187B network adaptor. I go to wireless connections in the toolbar at the top of the screen and click on my internet modem and it says its connected. So I go to firefox and it brings up google. I try and do a search and it says something and at the bottom of the page it displays a button that says "Try Again". Im booting ubuntu from the cd drive so its not installed on my computer what should i be trying?
