Ubuntu Networking :: HP DV4000 Wired Connection Not Connecting?
Jan 11, 2010
I have the latest version of ubuntu on an HP dv4000 laptop fully updated. wireless worked out of the box. but the wired connection wont start. Problem is with the ubuntu install not the network. But i dont know how to configure it to work.
Just had an issue crop up where connecting wired network seems to stop wireless connections from getting an IP (happens on multiple networks both while the cable is plugged in and once it's been unplugged; also persists across reboots). Machine is a Dell Latitude 2120n with UnionFS running. Connection was working fine prior to the wired connection
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.
Figured out a straight shot at connecting to the Internet in Fedora 15. Follow these commands.
1.)****** SWITCH TO ROOT USER if you don't have privileges******* 2.) cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts 3.) rm ifcfg-XXXXX (DO NOT REMOVE THE IFCFG-LO) 4.) system-config-network
-> Once in this screen, press the enter key on "Device configuration" -> Configure your network statically. ( I did the following.) Name: leave as default Device: Leave as default DESELECT "Use DHCP" Set Static IP as 192.168.2.117 (or 192.168.1.117) Set NetMask as 255.255.255.0 Set "Default Gateway IP" AND "Primary DNS Server" to 192.168.2.1 (or 192.168.1.1)
I upgraded to 10.10 from 10.04. I have the problem with connecting to a wired connection at my workplace. It was connecting earlier on 10.04 and now it doesnt. Laptop make is Hp and model number is 8530W.
As a random thought I purged the firmware-realtek package and rebooted. Ethernet works fine now??
Fresh Jessie installed this morning with KDE. Wired worked fine during installation and initial boot. Reboot after package installation and only wireless is working right now. I did install the realtek firmware as part of my normal package list.
This is /var/log/syslog when it stopped working, and hasn't reconnected since. Cable is fine as it was working perfectly with a live Ubuntu shortly before I installed the system with Debian.
Situation: I can access Ubuntu from Windows XP but not XP from Ubuntu. When I try to access XP from Ubuntu I get message "Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from server"
In System/Administration/Network Tools using Network device: Loopback Interface (lo) I can ping the IP address of the XP machine. Also, using Network device: Ethernet Interface (eth0) I can ping the XP by using its computer name.
In System/Preferences/Network Connections it shows under the Wired tab: Auto eth0 never used
Below are the settings in my smb.conf file.

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...
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 have never seen this before but to connect to the internet either wired or wireless I have to connect to a broadband connection as well. I am currently using wireless; I connect to ISP with wireless but in order to access the internet I have connect to the wireless connection through my broadband connection(This is where I enter a user name and password.). I'm not sure why this is, I have always just plugged an Ethernet cable in and the computer just knew I guess.
I am using ubuntu-10.04-netbook-i386.iso that I had put onto a USB drive. It booted fine, but when I tried accessing the internet I couldn't. I was able to connect to the ISP, but I couldn't find any settings for a broadband connection. My computer is a Acer Aspire One Netbook 250
Intel Atom CPU N270 @ 1.60GHz 1.60 GHz 1.99 GB of RAM Network Adapters Atheros AR 5B95 Wireless Network Adapter Atheros AR8132 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller
Each of those commands don't give me any error and it would seem like everything works fine, until I try to ping google or any website and I get an error that tells me that no host was found. I am using version 10.04 of Ubuntu server.
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 two PCs one has Windows XP the other has Ubuntu 9.10 on it, the Windows PC has no problems getting on the Internet (I'm posting this with it) and getting an IP address from the wired router. The wired router I have is ONLY wired it does not have wireless at all, it is currently setup to hand out IP addresses between 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.254.
The Ubunutu 9.10 PC worked great last night surfed all over the place for hours, then finally shut it down last night when I went to bed, shut down appeared to be normal like it always does when it shuts down, then this morning when I booted it up it gave error: "WIRED NETWORK - disconnected you are now offline".
I am using ubuntu in my new office, and I can't get the network working. The "official" OS installed was a Windows, and it has a special "dial-up" app for the LAN connection (not wireless). My network admin is apparently not helpful, since he actually knows nothing about the internals for the "dial-up" app (he did not even ever heard of TTLS, PEAP, MD5, etc), and claimed that no OS except for Windows can work...
Well, I have tested various configurations with my Mac laptop, and apparently the LAN connection requires 802.1X authentication, and it's using a very weird combination "TTLS+PEAP+MD5" (if I check these options in Mac OS X, the connection works). However, in NetworkManager, I can't select both TTLS and PEAP, and moreover, TTLS does not work with MD5. So, is there anything I could try?
I've had a computer running Ubuntu connected to my TV for a few weeks now, but as of yesterday, I can't get it to keep a connection to the Internet. Everything works well for an hour or so after a reboot, but then no WAN connections work. When this happens, no sites load in Firefox or Chrome, I can't ping Google, I can't SSH to the box from work, and none of the pages I have running on apache load from remote computers. However, all local area connections seem to work fine. SSH from within my LAN takes much longer than usual, but it does still connect.
The situation is I have one machine just installed 10.04yesterday, and I plan to take it as FTP server sharing filesvia LAN and WAN as wellBut after setting up all network withNetwork-Manager found that my dsl connection willdisconnect while my wired connection was connected.
my network-manager setting process is: 1.wired tab: IPv4:192.168.1.x
I have a wired problem in Ubuntu 10.10, My Ubuntu can connect with Wireless network, however it cannot connect to Wired Connection. I installed dual System, one is Ubuntu 10.10, the other one is Win7. Under Win7, I can both connect to the Internet in Wired or Wireless mode.
The more wired phenomenon is: When I plug in the cable, I can see the icon connected in my network manager. But I cannot visit any URLs. By checking the "ifconfig -a", I can see the IP addr was assigned to my eth0.
installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my Dell 1564. My cabled netwo connection is not working.buntu has been dual booted with Windows 7. Internet connection on Windows is working. I have an ADSL modem connected to my laptop via the cable.I have given the details of commands asked to be execute(viewed various posts).
I recently did a whole system wipe and got rid of windows all together!! Unfortunately, that means I have to start over with the whole networking thing. I know I have a bcm4311, but I have no idea what I have for a wired adapter. I know that I could search through everything to find what I need, but there is so much info for all the different versions. I have ubuntu studio. Can someone tell me the commands to type into the terminal to find out what I have for the wired network card and recommend a place to get the proper "drivers" to get my computer working again?
Running a wired connection through a Linksys router that suddenly stopped working today.I thought this was a ipv6 issue sinced I enabled some of those settings to share a connection with my PS3.I have since disabled IPv6 in Firefox and through the grub. The RealTek adapter will not even show a connection through the network manager when connected.The onboard adapter will show a connection, give me a ip address and MAC but still will not load the internet. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling both adapters through the network connections, as well as reinstalling Firefox to no avail.I've also tried using Open DNS servers.I cannot ping through the network tools either. Hard for me to paste a ifconfig since I'm on my laptop.I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 (not dual booting).I did some updates this morning but it worked fine for a little while after that, until I tried to connect to my PS3.
i got wired connection using Ubuntu 10.10 and im new using ubuntu pls tell me where i must write the words not to write codes and i don't where i must do it.what is the best version of Ubuntu didn't had that problems?as i saw that Ubuntu 10.10 had same problem for all people.
A while ago i attempted to use ubuntu as my default operating system and it failed, i could not get the shares to work properly and i gave up. Yes i know, may be i should have kept going.
Any way, my problem is, Im attempting to use ubuntu 11.04 now, and this time i am realy keen on going through with this, however... for some reason when i connect my wired connection cable ubuntu keeps failing to connect. this is with the auto eth0.
Can any one help me with this problem? This is one of the major things that i will need to do if i want to switch over to ubuntu.
I recently installed 11.04 on my PC (was running 9.04), and beforehand "tried it out" and networking was fine. I could access the internet no problem.I then ran the install, and fully formatted my HDD (i have 1 HDD for the OS and another for storage)It crashed halfway thorough, so no problem, i just re-formatted the hardrive and installed.However, It didnt connect to the internet, I literally tried every single forum looking for the solution, including editing the Network interface file.After a bit of diggingfound my user privileges did not allow me to connect to ethernet, and randomly use audio devices.SO, no problem I checked the boxes, but it still wont connect to the ethernet now, and it was fine before, tried re-installing twice with full format, but still doesnt work.
