Ubuntu Networking :: Connecting To Wireless But Can't Connect To The Internet - Not Even Via IP Address
Jan 22, 2010
I'm connecting to my wireless, but I can't connect to the Internet, not even via an IP address.
(*) Can not open web pages via IP address.
(*) Can ping internal hardware no problem.
(*) I can connect to the Internet via Ethernet no problem.
(*) I used to be able to connect via wireless on this computer. No settings changed in the interim.
(*) Several other computers currently connected & accessing Internet via the same wireless - no problem.
(*) Based on other posts, I disabled the avahi daemon, but this had no effect.
i have a Levano S10e intel atom preccessor and the net-book is not connecting wirelessly to the network. i have tried at two locations and even plugged in a exterlal wifi adapter. it wouldnt connect then either, the only way to get connected is to use a cat5 cable. here is the ifconfig output with no cat5 inserted and it not connecting to the internet.:
I have an old desktop computer that I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on. I also have a laptop with Windows 7 Pro which is connected wirelessly to the internet. The desktop does not have a wireless card and the modem is in another room. I have a spare ethernet cable, is it possible to connect the Ubuntu desktop to the internet by connecting it to the laptop with the cable? I'm not very good with computers.If this isn't possible, how would I go about connecting the desktop to the internet?
Ubuntu 10.10 connects to a DSL modem without any problems - I mean I just plugged it in and it worked - GREAT I bought a wireless router so I could connect my netbook and now my Ubuntu machine which is simply using a cable from the wireless router now DOES NOT connect. I tried a windows machine on the wired connection from the wireless router and it connects without a problem. OF course if I remove the wireless router from the chain, i.e. simply connect directly to the modem it works straight away.
I tried to setup sharing to connect Ethernet and wireless. I want Ethernet connected to desktop A, and wireless connected to another laptop(B), with my laptop acting as an AP. I set the network settings in Firestarter: Internet for wireless, local network for Ethernet. I want to share Internet from laptop B over the network. Internet won't work from my laptop since it seems to use the wrong interface.(Since the desktop is sharing Internet, although not on Internet usually when connected via Ethernet. And of course DNS/Gateway IPs aren't set for wlan0 since it's acting as an AP.) SMB wouldn't work for desktop A and laptop B: laptop B could detect desktop, but reports error "Path not found".
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

I have a wireless router, but my desktop computer is connecting to it, or maybe to the modem, by an Ethernet cable. It has a built-in wireless card, so just as an experiment, I tried to connect to my network wirelessly. It didn't work. And not only did I not get any internet connection, I can't get any internet through the wired connection either. The internet works fine with Windows Vista (I'm dual-booting), as well as when I boot up Backtrack off of a Live DVD. I can still access my router's config page by going to 192.168.2.1 on a web browser, but I can't access anything else.
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've only been using linux for a few days so I don't know all the tricks. I'm pretty savy configuring windows networks however.My adapter is (according to windows) a: CNet PRO200WL PCI fast ethernet adapterLinux says it is a: 21x4x DEC-tulip compatible 10/100 EthernetI do seem to be getting an ip address from the DHCP router, but I cannout ping any other ips or connect to the internet.I've tried a bunch of different options, switching things back and forth, but it still doesn't work, and honestly i don't even know what some of the options mean.
ALSO, if this helps: paladin:~ # ifconfig eth0 Eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:08:A1:03:3C:99
I have an Ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit on a Dell PowerEdge T310) that cannot connect to the Internet. The network interfaces work fine because I can connect to our local network and to the firewall appliance. The network is controlled via DHCP. I have another Ubuntu 10.10 machine that connects to the internet without any issues, so I don't believe that it is a firewall issue.
Via networking tools, I am able to perform a lookup, so DNS appears to be working. When I perform a trace route, it makes it to my firewall and then returns "no reply" from there. In firefox, I time out on "connecting to ..." I also fail on any apt-get update calls. I've disabled ipv6 in Firefox with no effect. Ifconfig results and gateway route is all correct.
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 and everything was ok util I was going to connect to internet. I just cant't find any way to connect to any wireless networks. I'm living in a board school so wireless is my only way to connect to internet. I have a Dell latitude e5500 and I can without any problem connect to internet on windows that I also have installed.

I bought a new Eee PC yesterday ripped off Windows and stuck Ubuntu 10.04 on (which is great by the way). It's all working fine except for the wireless I think I have: RT3090 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe. I've installed ndiswrapper and installed the drivers and I can connect to my wireless but I get no internet. It works fine on my windows box or when I plug the cable in. I've looked around and been fiddling with it for hours and no joy, it all seems to be installed correctly its just not working!
I am very new to Ubuntu. I installed lucid lynx on my HP DV6000 series laptop today. I'm dual booting with win 7 and Ubuntu 10.04. I cannot connect to the internet via wireless or wired connections. My indicator light on the front of the laptop for wireless connection stays orange when it should be blue.Wireless and wired connections work fine when booting to Win 7.My network adapter is Broadcom 802.11 Multiband netowkr Adpater and a NVidia nforce Networking Controller.
I have a LG X140 G.BG12P1. This netbook has a factory installed Windows 7 Starter Edition, which is working without any problems or issues. I recently installed on a free partition the Ubuntu Netbook 10.10, and I'm really upset because of the wireless issues I'm having here. If I use the Ethernet wired connection, I don't have any problems. In Windows 7, I don't have any problems either on Ethernet and on Wireless card. But when I try to use Ubuntu with the wireless card, I'm having very slow access to web pages, and sometimes they simply refuse to appear. I can open my DIR-655 router web pages without any problems. It appears to be a DNS related problem, because when I try to opne web pages using their IP (like [url]) I don`t have this issue. I modified my resolv.conf file to inlude my ISP DNS, but didn't work.
I recently upgraded to 11.04 natty narwhal and I can no longer connect to a wireless network (I'm doing this with ethernet). When I click on the wireless network icon it says: _______________________________________ wireless internet disconnected | VPN connections -> | Enable Networking | connection information (not available) | Edit Connections |
it doesn't list any available connections, and it doesn't connect either
I have a Dell vostro 1000 and a belkin surf n3000 router
I am VERY new to all of this, so if it's possible please use very "babyish" words if that's okay. I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 and it works awesome, I love it so much! However, I can't get wireless to work. It works for my Windows Vista which is on the same laptop I installed Ubuntu on... what do I do?? If it's okay, can someone on here talk step by step explaining in newbie terms because I am very very new to computer stuff. I really love Ubuntu so far but need to get internet so I have the full advantages of it.
I have Ubuntu-laptop with wireless card wlan0 and wired ethernet card eth0 and windows7-desktop with wired ethernet card.I want my desktop PC to connect to the internet via ubuntu wireless card. Meaning that, I'm connected to a wireless internet network in my ubuntu pc and I want to share this connection to the desktop.
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 and its great. However when I connect to the internet at home it shows that the connection has been established but I still cant connect to the internet. My flatmates are all able to connect. However, I am able to connect from work both wirelessly and through an ethernet cable.
I've been using this network forever With windows and I can't figure out how to connect to it now with ubuntu...I have a build-in wireless card and I know the name/password of the connection, but my computer cannot seem to locate it. I've looked through guides and none of them work..
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 just installed Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit on my HP Touchsmart TX2 1020us which has a Broadcom 4322 chip. At first my computer didn't seem to see the card at all, but then I typed the command (sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source) and then restarted the computer and now I'm connected to the network, but cannot connect to the internet so how do I figure this out. Like I said I have very little experience with linux at all so please don't make your answers too complicated.
i just installed the 10.0.4 version. My problem is that I cant connect to the internet. When I add a new wireless connection, it says that its connected but i cant ping the router or connect to any websites. It keeps auto assigning me with a 10.42.43.1 ip which doesn't make any since because my router's is nowhere close to that.
