Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Configure The Internet Connection
Jan 25, 2010
My father recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my new AMD dualcore, but we have not been able to access the net.we tried resetting the modem/router. Windows XP had no problem getting us online - why is it such an issue with Ubuntu?
i am having problem with setting up an internet connection on ubuntu plateform , presently i am running internet on xp plateform and want to switch to ubuntu plateform . i am connected to the internet through broadband connection by using modem. it's a dsl connection so plz tell me how to configure internet connection
I have install ubuntu 9.10 on my Dell studio, I have local broadband connection with its user name and password which i use to connect internet everytime i need along with its IP Address, subnet mask, Default gateway, Preferred DNS server. Where should i put all this details to connect internet, i have already tried with Network connection in System -> Preference . It all work well in window
I have attached the screenshot of the option which I select in Windows for making the same internet broadband connection. I am unable to find the same option in Ubuntu 10.04. Till now I was using the Pppoe Dialup. But now I am unable to configure this one.
recently installed Ubuntu 10.10. Everything seems to be working fine on the installation except I have never been able to connect to the internet (I'm on mac connected to the same linksys router at the moment). I've been working on this for several days and have exhausted all the possible causes. Here is my setup.
-I have tried running both 10.10 and 10.04 (I have 10.04 installed at the moment)
-I have windows xp on a separate hard drive on the same computer and the internet works fine when I boot in windows
-I have tried both automatic DHCP (which my windows uses) and manually connecting to my network under the IPv4 settings
-my "Connection Information" info under networks manager has all the correct information listed as far as my driver, IP address, Bcast, mask, DNS serves are concerned (except I don't know what 'default route' is for so I can't verify that that is correct.)
-my ethernet connection is wired connection that is connected to a linksys router
-my ethernet driver is sis190
-I can ping my router successfully, but I cannot ping anything (i.e. websites) on the other side of my router
I have recently installed ubuntu 9.10. Earlier I had ubuntu 9.04. On that my internet was running perfectly well.After installation I created new connection as I had done for 9.04 version using "Network connections , Edit connections". However, after configuring connection(uname , password etc.) I wasn't able to access Internet.So I tried using "pppoeconf" utility. After using this now whenever I click on network connections applet on top panel , it shows in menu "device not managed".Can somebody point out what went wrong and what to do so as to be able to acess Internet in ubuntu?
I just installed Ubuntu Netbook 10.10 on my Lenovo ideapad S10e. Under the network manager it says that firmware is not installed for the wirless card but that is something for a different day. On the ethernet connection it attempts to connect via dhcp and then comes up saying it is disconnected. I attempted to set it as a static connection, when i do that it shows that its connected but I still can not connect to the internet.
when I was still at my university room where the connection would work after a few reboots. After moving back home the connection worked on and off for a day before not working at all. NetworkManager is telling me that I am connected and have an ip address, etc, but nothing is able to get an internet connection. I am able to ping myself but am not able to ping my router. Everything works fine on M$ and other PC's on the network, it's just my ubuntu 10.04 that is playing up.
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my Dell Inspiron 1545 64-bit laptop. Before that I used Windows7. In Windows, the internet connection worked perfectly well. But after installing Ubuntu, I am unable to connect to the internet. The network-manager applet finally says that "You are disconnected". When I do the "ifconfig", I got no IP address.
So, I installed Ubuntu 9.04 in the same system. But the problem persists.
I gone through many posts in this forum but nothing was useful.
I wouldn't be posting this if I hadn't tried very hard for the past week to do this on my own, but alas, I failed. I have this two configurations:
Desktop: - Ubuntu 9.10 - Connected to the internet though a wireless card - Connected to "Laptop" via wired network with a crossover cable
Laptop: - Dell latitude - Ubuntu 9.10 - Connected to "Dektop" via wired network with a crossover cable
The wired connection is working, both computers are able to ping each other, but I haven't managed to share internet, nor files. I have tried many different ways, from setting the wired network to "Shared to other computers" to this guide in the Ubuntu Wiki. The best I could get was for the connection to work by setting the IPs manually, whatever else I try results in either nothing or in a not-working connection.
I have just installed ubuntu 10.04 using the wubi installer to dual-boot my machine. Under ubuntu, I am not able to connect to the internet or my router. Everything works fine under windows. I have tried to find relevant information in the forums, but nothing seems to work for me. I have tried disabling ipv6, setting a static ip, but no go. ifconfig shows no IP, dhclient results in no DHCP offers and pinging my router's IP results in Network is Unreachable.
In Damn Small Linux? I have a dinosaur computer I need to use for something, and there's no ethernet port. But there is USB. On the internet box my ISP provided there's a port for a usb cable. But I plug it in and there's no connection. Tried Vector too. Is there a terminal command to make it work?
I am running Ubuntu 10.10, and I would like to use my computer to share the internet connection from an ethernet port. For example, I would like to set up my computer as a wireless access point so I can create a network that other computers can connect to for internet.
After upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04, I'm not able to make any connection to the internet with either my netbook through WiFi or my computer on wired LAN. I can, however, ping my Solaris machines and Macbook. How do I fix this?
I am new to Linux. Just installed Ubuntu 10.04 few days back. The problem I am having is not able to connect to internet. Mine is direct cable connection using CAT5 cable terminted to my ethernet card. and I connect to the net using a dial-up connection. I think other end of the cable is terminated to a common switch.I have tried searching it over net. The only thing I could figure out is that I have to do some configuration on pppoe (am i right?)Are there any commands I have to enter or anything like we used to do in windows?
I have just installed Debian Squeeze on my spare computer (dual booted with Ubuntu 11.04) and I cannot connect to the internet using Squeeze. Due to my ISP, I have to manually connect this computer and on Ubuntu copying and pasting a text file such as this into the terminal works with no problems.What do I need to do to manually configure my Squeeze internet connection?
I want to configure Internet connection in my linux os but don't know how to do it. In Windows XP the method is quite simple but in linux I know know what to do about, It has been very challenging for me to do it but don't knw how ot do it.This file I have to type at run "RASPPPOE.inf" to get list of available Internet providers.
In windows I do it in this way- 1.First go to My network places ->View network connection->Local area network->Properties->Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)->Install->protocol->Microsoft TCP/IP version 6(select)->Have disk->(then browse to get RASPPPOE.inf file from PPPOE folder)->click OK->select PPP over Ethernet protocol->Click OK->>continue anyway(two times if asked)-> Apply->OK.
2.Then got to run ->Type raspppoe (Enter)->one window will open->select the LAN card (where internet cable is connected)->Click on Query available services->Select Internet provider name and->Click on Create dial up connection.-> Then dial up will be created on Desktop where I enter my username and password to start internet.
Its a case of ".... wireless network connection active but still not internet connection .."I am using WEP - 128 key ... Works when I connect directly using ethernet cable ... but not wireless (pci and wireless router)
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 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've very recenty installed Ubuntu v 9.10(64amd) but am unable to setup my internet connection.I've gone through quite a few posts where other users have faced the same trouble trying to setup a DSL connection.I've entered all my Ip4 settings as they are on Win..but that hasn't helped.That didn't open my modem settings page either.Modem model : SmartAX MT882 connected via Ethernet and not USB.Can't quite figure out what I'm doing wrong/need to do.
