Ubuntu Networking :: No Internet After Lucid Dual-boot?
Jul 13, 2010
I seem to have a problem connecting to the internet with Ubuntu after dual-booting my new laptop with 10.04. I have a DW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card in my new laptop, and I'm not sure what to do to fix this. The other computers I have running Ubuntu are much older and had everything run correctly right after the install.
I decided last night it was finally time I look at Linux. I've wanted to for a very long time, but was not keen on the learning curve. Anyway, I did a dual-boot with XP, which had it's own issues, but which I figured out with some info. Now my problem is I can't access the internet from within Ubuntu. It's finding the hardware, I think.
Below is data gained from lspci, nm-tool, ifconfig, and lshw. jason@jason-desktop:~$ lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation E7505 Memory Controller Hub (rev 03) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation E7505/E7205 PCI-to-AGP Bridge (rev 03) 00:02.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation E7505 Hub Interface B PCI-to-PCI Bridge (rev 03) [Code].....
I deleted 2 ubuntu partitions using Vista's manager, and expanded the unallocated space in to the Vista partition. when I restarted a screen came up saying error: no such partition grub rescue> Is there any way I can fix this ( by deleting grub, or something...)
I would like to add Ubuntu 8.10 as a dual boot option to my Ubuntu 10.04 installation. It is not immediately obvious to me how to do so, because running the CD installation will presumably overwrite Grub2 with Grub (and might not successfully boot 10.04).
How do I install 8.10 without overwriting my Grub2, and then add 8.10 to the Grub2 menu?
Was wondering how to do this. I was trying to do achieve this from looking at different guides, but I haven't had any luck.
I am on a custom PC, with dual screens; one LCD, and one CRT, from which I installed OS X 10.5.6 from a retail DVD.
I installed OS X first, because I needed to format my HDD to use GUID partition table, because you can't install from a retail DVD without using GUID. Once OS X was installed, I partitioned my hard-drive into 4 partitions from the OS X disk utility. These partitions were HFS. I then used the Ubuntu Lucid x64 Live disk to format the 3 nre HFS partitions to use ext4, for two of them, and one swap. I installed Ubuntu as normal.
I re-booted, and GRUB recognized my OS X instillation, so I tried to boot into it. It went into OS X, but with some major problems. My LCD screen was going haywire, but my CRT seemed to be working, but it took on my LCD's screen resolution and place as the main screen.
I thought my OS X instillation was badly damages, so with Ubuntu still installed on the other partitions, I re-installed OS X, which I am on now.
I want to know how to boot back into Ubuntu, while still having the option to boot into OS X.
I have the 32 bit lucid dual booted with win 7, and I wanted to upgrade to the 64 bit lucid. I have the .iso on a jump drive ready to go, BIOS is set to boot from it, now it gets funny. Unless I misunderstand what grub does shouldn't my jump drive show up in the grub menu so that I can select it to boot from? My only options showing are 32 bit lucid and wins 7.
I recently installed Ubuntu Lucid on my sisters laptop and it will now no longer boot into Windows Vista.
When Vista is selected, the loading bar is briefly displayed before the screen turns black and returns to GRUB.
EDIT : More specifically, first a long bar is displayed at the bottom of the screen that says something like 'loading windows files' above it. Then the standard vista loading bar, with (c) microsoft under it. Then I get an hourglass pointer and a message "please wait a moment" in the centre of the screen. After a few seconds, the screen then goes black and the computer reboots.
I used a live CD to install Ubuntu and I chose the default automatic option for the dual boot partitioning. All the data on Windows can be accessed from Ubuntu, it just will not boot.
Here is the output of the boot info script:
Code: Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010 ============================= Boot Info Summary: ============================== => Grub 2 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks on the same drive in partition #5 for /boot/grub.
I run Lucid on ext3. I really miss not being able to reach Lucid from my dual boot Vista.I have installed the latest fsdriver. I have also tried this:[URL].. which does not work. (Is it because fsdriver is still in the system?) I also tried these methods but to no avail.[URL]. The problem seems to be related to fsdriver not being able to handle ext3 with Inode size = 256. Going back to ext2 for only the home partition seems complicated?
I'm trying to create a dual-boot system, and have been following the instructions here. However my hard disk has bad sectors, and GParted won't let me resize the Windows partition. It tells me to use ntfsresize with --bad-sectors as an option, after having done some checks, all of which I've done. I've successfully shrunk the NTFS volume in this way -
when I boot into Windows, it says the hard drive is the size I set it at. However, the Ubuntu installer and Gparted still see the Windows partition taking up the entire hard drive. So, for the installation, do I have to set the size of the volumes manually, or is there a way to make Ubuntu see what ntfsresize has done?
i had a dual boot with xp and lucid lynx, then upgraded the xp to win7. windows commonly overwrites grub with it's bootloader. and so it did. now i can't access my lucid OS. i need to get grub back (i need to get lucid back).
Dual boot PC, boot disk and WIN XP are on good disk, Ubuntu was installed on failed disk. (I prefer separate disks for each OS).
I know I will need to reinstall Ubuntu later, and of course, GRUB2 now crashes without the Ubuntu disk.
Confirm that the only thing I need to do when I get the new drive installed and partitioned is to boot my XP disk in Recovery Mode and type "fixmbr", (then reboot to confirm clean WIN operation on the existing disk) then install Ubuntu as normal on the new disk.
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.
Just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on dual boot computer. Each OS is on separate hard drive with GNOME selection between Ubuntu and Windows 7 Ultimate. Firefox was working fine yesterday when I went to use today, nothing. Email through Thunderbird is down as well.
I have been looking for a solution to an apparently simple problem, but could not find anything for Lucid. All solution I found imply modifying files that apparently don't exist anymore (/etc/default/bluetooth, /etc/bluetooth/hid.conf, ...)I have an old laptop running Xubuntu (lucid). Internet card is dead but it has a bluetooth adapter in the USB port. I also have another laptop with internet, wireless, and bluetooth on board. How can I configure both so that the first access the internet trough the second?
- Internet works on the second (of course!)
- Bluetooth work on both, I can pair them and send file from one to the other (although I cannot browse them, but it seems to be an unrelated problem)
- I have blueman on both and tried to configure it to do what I want but it did not work (old computer has a bnep0 interface, but no address for it)
- Old laptop sees "Network access point" and "group network" as bluetooth services of new laptop (although I did uncheck "group network" in the local services setting on new laptop)
- as I said I looked on the web but only found solutions that appear to be designed for older versions of Ubuntu because they refer to non existing files on my two laptops.
I'm running dual boot with Vista and Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. for few days i was running Ubuntu only, downloaded some files and created some directories. few minutes ago, i switched to Vista to see something and i wanted to burn some of the files i downloaded using Ubuntu but couldn't find those folders.
i thought maybe its related to different file system or something so i switched back to Ubuntu and surprise! my folders are not there, instead i got a file, of unknown type with the same name as the folder had! in another folder case it's was an image (some print screen of my browser screen - Mozilla) and again with the name of what was the folder! first - what the hall had happened? second - can i recover my data somehow?
I have a server with two ethernet ports. I configured eth0 to be static, set at 10.1.10.148. I plugged in another router into the other ethernet port in order to configure that router. I configured eth1 to use dhcp. Using /etc/network/interfaces rather than gnome network manager. When I did this, I lost internet connectivity (internet routes through eth0 of course)
- Why did I lose internet connectivity?
In order to recover internet activity, I had to disconnect the new router on eth1 of course, and do sudo ifdown eth1. That wasn't enough however. After rebooting numerous times and pulling out my hair, I finally tried configuring eth0 as dhcp, rather than static, and this fixed the problem.
- Why didn't sudo ifdown eth1 solve the problem? What information was saved between reboots that somehow remembered that I plugged in the new router? Because my thinking was if /etc/network/interfaces was identical, and the network topology was identical, after a reboot everything should be restored, but it wasn't.
I currently have an old powermac 7220/200 with all ehe origanl stuff except for the hard drive which is now a slightly larger one. I was wondering if it was possible to set up a ubuntu installation on it using a 20g hard drive (I have got one of these going on a 486 running win98, just) and be able to run mac os as a dual boot system, possibly with 9.1 and the origanal mac os that come with it? Unfortunantly I cannot connect this computer to any internet even if I had a card that was compatible with mac os.
I installed lucid netbook edition on my friends netbook and I am unable to connect to their wireless. The netbook is dual booting with xp and while in xp it is able to connect but once i boot into lucid it is unable to.
I am new to Linux and Debian. I have Compaq Presario R3000 laptop, which is 5 years old now. I have RealTek RTL8139 family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC. Currently I have a broadband connection at home. I have dual boot Windows XP Professional and Debian (which I installed a week ago through CD). I have done some preliminary tests for the network and I am posting the screenshots for the tests (e.g. lspci, ifconfig, etc.). I also did two more commands. For 'cat /etc/network/ifstate' the output was 'No such file or directory'. Same output was for the command 'cat /etc/network/options'.
I've re attempted going full on Linux using Ubuntu 11.04. I've done really well and have for the most part been able to make just about everything work. I was considering trying to dual boot into OS X on my PC if I could get Windows Office 10 to work in Ubuntu. I've had no luck getting office 10 or any of the suites to work in WINE no matter whos guides and how-to's I've read.
That lead me back into trying to dual boot into XP after a fresh format. The reason I need to get back into windows is that for my college courses Microsoft Word and Excel are required right now. So, this is getting me fairly frustrated as I'm not sure what to do or what the reason behind my other OS not seeing it's internet connection. I have samba and as well as my link to SWAT. I'm able to move files from Linux to XP with no problem, but have yet to configure SWAT as I'm not sure how to. My thinking is SWAT may have a reason to be why there's no connection.
I've just installed Fedora 10 to basically work as a NAS for another machine - but also serve a couple of web pages. After having alot of issues with network manager (with it changing the subnet so nothing would work), I'm now almost there:
I have two network cards connected in the server: 1) eth0 connects to a switch that ultimately connects it to the net (on a 10.0.0.* network) 2) eth1 connects directly into another server for backups (192.168.0.* network).
Now when I setup eth0, I get network access can ping/ update/ surf the net - absolutely no problems, but when I connect eth1 in - the net dies and nothing works, I can ping devices on both the 10.0.* and 192.168.* networks, just nothing past the gateway. I presume this is either a route or DNS issue, but am unsure about where its falling foul - both the resolv.conf file looks fine as do the ifcfg-ethx scripts.
After upgrading to 10.04 from 9.10 Win7 wouldn't startup any more. So I tried this HowTo: [URL] to restore Grub2. But now each time I boot up I get this two lines: error file not found grub rescue> I have NO idea what to do.
My Internet connection works fine when I boot Ubuntu with the CD and it does not work when I boot from the Hard Drive. It was working then it stopped. I tried to diagnose the problem but I am not familiar with Linux.
I opened a Terminal window and entered ipconfig (don't laugh ... sadly, i've been in Windows for too long) ipconfig was something that could not be found in my terminal window so i exited.
Next it was System->Administration->Network Tools. I ping'd www.yahoo.com and it said it could not find it. hmmmm. Let's see if restarting the system will fix it.
I did a shutdown and when it came back up; same problem. Ok, i really didn't think it would magically correct itself; this is Linux after all. Windows? Well sometimes you can fix things by turning them off and on. Next, another shutdown and I rebooted with the CD instead of the Hard drive and here I sit entering this help question in.
I am guessing that a file or setting got changed in /etc/someplace and I am not even sure of that. Can anyone point me in the correct direction? I am assuming that there is a setting which is correct in the CD version that is not not correct in the HD version and somehow i need to find what it is and synchronize it with the CD version.
I can connect & share my dual-boot PC with no problems under WinXPPro using wired or wireless. (I've another thread going trying to get the wireless-n usb adapter to work.) Two questions so I can get the wired shares to work. I want to copy beaucoup files from the Win7 PC to the dual-boot PC. When booting into XP, no problems. When booting into Ubuntu 10.04, nothing. I can see the Win7 PC but can't access it. My two questions then are these.First, is there some switch to enable fire & drive sharing under Lynx as there is under WinXP / 7? Second, how does one set the IPv4 address? Under WinXP it's one address and under Lynx it's another.
I have a dual boot ( Ubuntu 10.04 and Linux Mint), but I spend most of my time in the Ubuntu 10.04 partition. The point is that I have a huge files in the Mint compartment and I would like to gain access to those files from my Ubuntu 10.04 partition. I have tried samba and could not get the file sharing system to work. I had used samba when I was dual booting between Ubuntu and Windows and it worked but not in my present Linux dual boot.
I have a headless machine set up on my LAN which is dual boot, Ubuntu 10.04 SE and Windows. I have a printer attached to it. (HP Deskjet D1500 series) I also have a shared folder located on the machine.
Through SMB I've been able to recreate the share in Ubuntu to point to the share on Windows. When the machine is in either OS, the share can be resolved, browsed, edited, etc, from \hostsharename. Through SMB I've also been able to share a printer attached to the machine (and print to it). I have a problem though:
When the machine is in either OS, it is possible to use the same scheme to access the shared directory. This is not true with the printer. When in Windows: My Windows 7 x64 machine can connect to the printer, look for drivers, and when it doesn't find drivers in \hostprint$, it uses its own. My W7x64 machine can print a test page, and any other pages for that matter. My W7x64 machine lists the printer as "HP Deskjet D1500 series" I do not have to re-add the printer.
When in Ubuntu:I have to re-add the printer to my W7x64 machine. I have to specify the driver to use, regardless of whether I use the same print$ directory. Re-adding the printer gives me a network printer by the name of the printer, not the description (e.g. "HP Deskjet D1500 series")
My goal is to mimic the transparency of the shared directory, so whereas I've created a shared directory in Windows that persists between OSs, I want to create the network printer to persist across OSs. I can print to the printer in either OS, but the "printer" I have when the dual boot machine is in Ubuntu is NOT the "printer" I have when it's in Windows.
I need to accomplish this to avoid booting the machine into Windows for a client to print something. It seems very odd that I can make Apache, PHP, MySQL, shares, and common files persist/be identical between OSs, but not network printers. I've worked this for a few days now, exhausting what I can in information on SMB and CUPS to no avail. I am exhausted myself.
