Ubuntu Networking :: Not Able To Connect To Internet / Cannot Get 64 Bit Version Installation Right?
Oct 28, 2010
New Toshiba Satellite L650 D 64 bit ..Processor Vision Tech. With WIN 7 it connects through the Linksys Wireless G Router and also straight Broadband Cable . But I have tried Xubuntu 10 .04 ..Linux Mint 10.04 [ which I installed].
Open SUSE 11.2 and none will connect . My old laptop runs Xubuntu 10.04 /
Ubuntu 8.10 no problem but 32 bit. I cannot get this 64 bit version installation right?
I have some problem with my network, i can't connect to Internet with Ubuntu desktop version. I'm using my network cable but cant seem to get Internet.give useless information but don't know what to give you.
I recently updated my ubuntu to the newest version 10. I have a DSL router with a password. When I try to connect to the net it will try to connect for about 5 or so min then say that I am disconnected. I cannot remember what option I had before to connect but its not on this version.
I'm trying to do a net install with the latest release of debian - but my ethernet card is not recognized/the drivers are not available because I have a card that requires a linux kernel version of 2.6.35. This is obviously a problem because I can't download any additional packages, and I can't update the version because I'm not able to connect to the internet. I have installed it, but it's only text (which I assume is because I could not install the graphical interface, correct me if I'm blaringly wrong here). So what can I do to install debian on my laptop and be able to use my Intel Centrino Advanced-N 620 network card?
I've just installed Ubuntu. My house isn't wired so I use wireless on all my machines to connect to the internet. When I start up Ubuntu, I can connect to my wireless router. After about 3 minutes, I get disconnected. It refuses to reconnect for several minutes. If I disable and reenable networking, I can establish a connection again, but the process is repeated. I'm not really sure what the issue is here. Any guesses? This is a desktop and I'm using a Belkin wireless adapter.
On this box I have Two seperate Ubuntu installations. Recently in both I seem to be having the same problem. I initially can connect to the internet as per normal and use any internet application. But after a period of time, sometimes just minutes, sometimes hours, even though the icon says connected, I cant update pages or send emails etc because there is no actual connection. My Physical connection is good I know - My Ubuntu laptop and Windows gamming PC connect fine during this period. So
Does this suggest an intermittent hardware fault or is there some thing in Ubuntu I can check to make sure that it is setup correctly and nothing has been corrupted? I am a lay PC person - I dont really want to be command prompting - Plug & Play and Point & Click is my limit.
I tried to install Xubuntu 10.10 Maverick as dual boot on my laptop. However when xubuntu is on, I can't find a way to connect to internet. When I try the 2 arrows on the up-right corner the option for wireless is deemed. I tried offline/online, that did not work either. when I click the firefox It says you are not connected.
I am trying to setup a dhcp server for my internal network. I have two NICs, a modem, and a wireless router. I have my server connected directly to my modem which is providing me with Internet access on eth1 and is working fine. I have dhcp and dns setup on eth0 which is connected to my router. The router shows that it is connected to the Internet but when the router gives a client computer an IP address, the client is unable to connect to the Internet but can connect to the router. I will post my configuration files below with my current configuration.
I can connect to the internet through wifi, but I cannot connect to anything on my network. I have a printer and a NAS, so I would really like for this to work again. I have a dell laptop with a Broadcom card.
I had put my computer on standby and when i restarted it, it powered off within a few seconds. I turned it back on and after that i've lost connectivity to internet on Ubuntu 10.04.
However I have VMware (XP) installed and internet/network works on that. I'm a newbie with Linux.
Here are some outputs:
I have tried to edit the connection using System>Preferences>Network Connections. I entered manual settings for IPV4, but whatever i enter there, it doesnt get reflected when i type ifconfig in the terminal window. I tried setting it to Automatic DHCP as well. Doesnt work.
I downloaded Ubuntu and was hella pumped to use it.. I downloaded it, burnt it at a 4x speed (slowest I can) I did a clean install and made it the only OS on my Hard Drive. After installing it said I didn't have connection. After a good 3-4 hours, I tried every option, I even got it to say I was connected but I still had no Internet connection. I put in my Windows 7 disc to go back to what I originally had. BUT I couldn't install it to a hard drive that wasnt formatted at NTFS, I guess Ubuntu changed my HDD. So, I put back in my Ubuntu disc and clicked 'Try Ubuntu'.. Found out that the TRIAL gives me Internet but the full version does not. I copied down the configuration that the Auto Eth connection had, and went back to the full version - I already had in the exact same configuration. So im here with a trial on my computer, can't download anything or install anything. I cant go back to Windows 7, and I need the disc in to use my computer.
I've recently set up a local development webserver using Karmic Koala. I downloaded and installed the server version of Kubuntu and have the web server working.
The problem is that for some reason, I'm no longer able to connect to the internet. I can connect to my router, and other machines in my network can VNC into the server.
I'm using an wired connection to the router and have the server set up on an internal IP of 192.168.0.100. I used to be able to connect to the internet, I downloaded and installed a load of packages etc before it stopped working.
The last thing I remember doing before it stopped working was that I installed Samba so I could share files with the other machines on the network (two Macs running Leopard and a WinXP laptop).
I got the share working - I copied a load of files to the server via the share, rebooted, and for some reason now I can't connect to the net (and other machines can't see the Samba share either.) However I can still VNC into the server.
When i boot my computer and open ubuntu version 10.04.1 the internet wireless connection i have connected automatically. Now, for one reason i don't know, the internet did not connect to the internet. The progam display a message to uncheck the checkmark in the File Menu. After doing this, i refresh the system but it still not connect.
Yesterday I helped my neighbor install Ubuntu 9.10 on his PC. This PC had XP with many bad viruses is the reason for the change. This is not a dual boot setup. Strictly Linux. I know the hardware is fine because DSL communications was working at the time of the install.
I've found a few threads describing problems with the Network Manager and DSL. [URL] I'm in kind of a "chicken and the egg" situation. This Linux PC has no internet connection right now and many of these fixes are downloads via the terminal. However, at my house, I have XP running and online. Can I download these fixes and copy to a flash drive and install on his Linux box?
I have a Ubuntu desktop on my LAN that has suddenly stopped accessing the net, this morning it was working nicely. The computer DHCPs an address successfully, and it can access other comps/services on the LAN. Other comp have no trouble accessing the web.I've pinged my gateway, and I get a response, but pinging Google for example gets me a 100% packet loss.I've tried to release and renew the IP using dhclient, I've unplugged and replugged in the cable at both ends (didn't really expect it to work since it can dhcp fine), I've rebooted the switch, the router, and the comp, still I'm getting the same problem. I haven't played with any firewall settings either.
I'm just using Ubuntu for the first time, and am trying to get everything working on the Live CD before I install it. The only problem that I'm having right now is getting connected to the Internet. I'm trying to connect to my router, but it keeps asking for the WEP Key. I type it in and it pops up again a minute later. It works on Windows, though. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on an old Inspiron 8100 I got from a friend.
I'm pretty new to Ubuntu, and have run into problem after problem with networking. The current one: I can't ssh out or connect to the internet, and ping gives a "unknown host" or "network is unreachable". But I can ssh into my computer from others on my network. "route -n" gives 2 entries, neither of which is "default", which from my reading it seems like you need, but I don't know how to remedy that. Is this a DHCP problem?
I'm on a university network, so I doubt it's a problem at their end, but I don't think I changed anything when this suddenly stopped working. On a more meta level, is it normal to run into a different network connection problem every few weeks? I'm not touching anything, I swear! Every linux user I know seems to know ping/ifconfig/route/netstat like the back of their hand, and if it's always like this, it's enough to drive a girl back to windows.
Both ethernet and wireless connections are down, Windows on the same machiene works with both - not hardware problem. Networking is enabled in the applet, but WiFi indicator and ethernet adapter indicator do not flash. Problem appeared after I closed the lid of the laptop at night (set to suspend), but next morning battery was empty indicating that it failed to suspend. I could not find any "hardware manager" inbuilt to turn devices on.
I don't like using Windows, and internet is a necessity.
PS It's Ubuntu 10.4, Gnome on Dell Inspiron 6400 (x86)
I just installed Ubuntu and it won't connect to the internet. I have an HP Pavilion dv4 laptop. On the top of my keyboard area has my power button, volume and wireless switches (they're all touch sensitive). Anyways, when the wireless is on, the light is blue. Whenever I log on to my Ubuntu account, it just has an orange (meaning off) color, and I can't switch it to on (blue). I'm running Vista 64 bit right now.
i want to connect to Internet via 3G key. But in our country, the operator who is offering that service mentions that 3G key is not compatible with Linux OS. But, when surfing on net, i found some scripts that makes such a service working with Ubuntu 7.xx. I wonder if there is a solution with Ubuntu 10.10
I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 and it works fine, but will not connect to the internet. My wifi card has a CD with drivers, including one for Linux, but it has no 'install' file. I have ZERO idea how to even get to a command line place in Ubuntu [NOR what I'd do or need to do if I got there!!!!] - and need desperately to get online, for all the obvious reasons and to download all the missing drivers needed for things I do. My wifi card [if it matters is a ASUS 802.11n Wireless LAN Card PCE-N13.When I look at what is in the Linux driver folder is foreign to me as Chinese...so those trying to explain, please realize this is my FIRST Linux install and I don't know the terminology...and lacking internet can look up nothing.
I am unable to connect to the internet through DSL. I can use it in Windows 7 easily. I use a Broadband PPPoe with an user name and password along with a service name. I have set up a DSL in ubuntu and I have placed the required user name and password there and I have also entered the service name in the field between the username and password. But it shows to be disconnected every time i try to dial the connection. I have also tried with the "sudo ppoeconf" command and "setpppoe 1.0 software" and failed.
I cant connect to the internet, when i am about to connect to the internet its says you are now offline, then when I put my WPA key in and it starts to connect and when its finished connecting it says you are now offline again, the network name comes up but i cant connect
I tried using the ubuntu 11.04 cd but it didn't work so I had to dig out my old ubuntu 8.04 livecd. I had a computer with windows xp totally get wasted and I decided to do a clean install with ubuntu 8.04 and update to the newer version, however I cannot get the internet to connect (wired), I've tried figuring out of there is a driver problem but was not able to figure it out.
I have installed ubtuntu 11.04 from 10.04. Everything went fine i was surfing the net without any issues. When i turned on my laptop today to use ubuntu It won't let me connect it keeps saying check my internet connection.I didn't change nothing. I just updated the stuff in the update manager and rebooted and laptop was fine. But now i can't get the net to work on ubuntu. I know my net work cause i have windows 7 installed on my laptop to.
I just uninstalled ubuntu and reinstalled it thinking it would fix my issue but it didn't.On ubuntu 10.04 lts the wireless worked the first day then next day only wired connection worked. I am not sure what to do or how to fix this issue its buging me alot i love ubuntu as much as i love windows 7. I been surfing the net for help on how to fix this but they don't seem to help. And i am still new to ubuntu so step by step help will be good cause i just installed ubuntu last friday. If you need need more information let me know.
I have a Dell PowerEdge 1650 server with 3 NICs in it. I am trying to use one NIC (eth0) to connect to the internet, the second NIC (eth1) to share the internet connection to a LAN, and the third NIC (eth2) to connect to the LAN.
It is running Ubuntu server 8.10
The problem that I'm having is that NetworkManager (version 0.7.0) keeps setting eth2 as the default connection, and then I don't get any internet at all from the server.
My main goal is to be able to share files from the server to computers on the LAN. The secondary goal is to have a virtual machine hosting a Halo server, connected through eth2, so that it can host LAN games. But that is a secondary goal after I get the connections to work.
I've been looking around and finding other people who have done bits and pieces of this, but not the whole thing. I had been hoping to simply use the NetworkManger, but I don't mind editing config files.
Also I can't seem to find any good instructions on editing the /etc/network/interfaces file. The man file is incomplete, and everything seems to point back to the man file.
I have installed fedora 12 recently. after installation i tried to connect to the internet using BSNL broadband connection. I filled in the details such as IP, Netmask, Gateway and even DNS servers. In the services also I ensured that the network manager services is on. However even though my computer cannot connect to the internet. I then tried the ping test of the modem from the address 192.168.1.1 and found that the ping test is successful. Then i tried the network administrator and there I noticed something unusual.
There are two options in the devices eth0 and eth1 thats ok but the unusual; thing is that the Activate (green button), Deactivate (red button) and even the delete buttons are in the background and I cannot select them. Isthis the problem for the network connectivity.
