Networking :: Connected To The Internet But Cant Access?
Mar 4, 2010
im using mandrake linux 2010.0 , and i connected my router cable (dlink) to the computer, and it detects without needing configuration to the 'eth0' and it shows me the ip the dns and gateway, everything ok, but then i go in firefox it says that i couldent connect because theres no internet connection,ive looked at the proxys the firewall, tried to uninstal the eth0, the ppp0 and install then again and still the same,does any one have an idea of what could be?
When I connect my PDA (AT&T Tilt with Windows Mobile 6.1) to my desktop via USB (my desktop is connected to Internet via LAN), I can't access Internet from my PDA. How can I share Internet from my desktop with my mobile phone?
p.s. I can only find how to access Internet on a desktop using a mobile phone as a modem.
I've been using my upstairs computer with no problems recently up until this evening, when I rebooted it did an automatic scan of my disks, so I left it to it's thing and when I came back ubuntu had successfully booted, and had seemingly successfully connected to my wireless network as usual.
I've been through the wireless troubleshooting guide, paying special attention to sections 4 and 6 but to no avail, while I'm apparently connected, and have been assigned an IP by my router I'm unable to access anything outside my computer, including the router itself. This happened before, however I solved it by reinstalling ubuntu, and I'd rather not do that again!

I am facing very strange problem with my Dell with WiFi card (04:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless WiFi Link 5100) It seems I am connected to the WiFi but can not access internet I have to disable networking and re-enable it to access internet.
I have installed ubuntu 10.04 and STA wireless driver. I am using a wimax modem, the wireless is connected (have IP addresses) but I do not have access to the internet.I also have installed a windows XP as a guest OS (ubuntu is the host) on vmware. By using a bridged network connection, I am able to access internet. So I guess the problem is related to the ubuntu wireless driver.
Background infoMy laptop (MySN MG6.c) is dual-booted with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.10, and connected to the internet through a router (Digitus DN-11004-O), which is set-up to use DHCP. The internet connection works fine under Windows, and my previous laptop, which also ran Ubuntu 9.10, had no problems connecting to the internet through that router.The network adapter is an Atheros AR8131 PCI-E (also detected as Attansic under Ubuntu)stem infoResults from running various diagnostics (I have removed the output that relate to the wireless connection, as I don't use it):
Code: $ uname -a Linux valyria 2.6.31-14-generic-pae #48-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 16 15:22:42 UTC 2009 i686
I have internet from KabelBW (cable modem which doesnt require any username,password,dns,mac...) they gave me a cisco modem, I connected it with my asus router and it has been working fine since today! when I woke up I turned on my lap top and loged in skype, but I couldnt open google, then I tried yahoo..nothing! I havent made and changes yesterday! I dont know what is wrong! I am new to ubuntu and I dont know what to do! when I connect directly to modem I have internet it works good, but when I connect through my (LAN or Wireless) router I cant view web pages. I have tried to google for the answer but all the answers are for windows OS versions! I tried to restart lap top, and the router 100 times but nothing!
can't access internet. The up and down icon appears by the network connection (upper right hand corner). When I review connection properties, I see that the computer has a valid address, subnet, gatway, dns, etc... But it still can't connect to the internet. I can't ping external addresses either. But I can access internal addresses (local router).
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 want to set a up a network of inter connected pcs, for example on pc A linux is installed.now pcs B, C , D, etc should connect to A and do there work, for example A want to do C/C++, development, whereas B wants to do some PERL development or whatever, this is just an example, 2 different pc users might do same work also, and the connecting pcs may have Windows or linux or bsd.OSes now what h/w or s/w is required and what steps are required to set up this network, main pc would be connected to internet and also connected pcs might want to use internet also..have installed opensuse edulife , and use this as PC A for testing.. and I use bridged dsl Broadband connection to connect to internet , by the username and password provided by the ISP, in windows its easy to setup this connection, however not able to do on linux,
This is my second day with ubuntu on a dell mini 10v with broadcom wireless card. I hooked up to a wired connection and ubuntu installed the drivers for the broadcom card.When I put the cursor over the wireless icon on the desktop it shows the name of my wireless connection,active,and my ip address but when I open firefox I get a "server not found". I'm confused as what to put in the boxes for ssid,mode,bssid,mac address,and mtu under network connections. I've tried pretty much every conceivable method at my disposal,even went on my d-link router settings and nothing has worked.I do not have windows installed,using 10.4
I can connect to my router but no web pages will load etc... I can connect my phone to the router and USB tether it to my laptop and everything works fine. I can also connect to my neighbors router and everything works fine.
I have tried put my routers IP in /etc/resolve.conf but to no avail. I also tried putting 184.108.40.206.
Edit: Toshiba Sattelite A215 laptop (RS690 wireless card?) and a Linksys router.
linex,and let me tell you I am very excited to be using linex.Its awsome,I cannot belive how fast my intenet works.OK all I want to know is,whether its possible to connect to my laptop via my mobile, so I can go online when I'm out and about.I don't have blue tooth capabilities on my laptop.so I opdered a wireless bluetooth dongle from ebay.Will I be able to connect
i have tata docomo 3g device i have connected my device using sakis3g in my fedora 14 i have recently change my 32-bit fedora to 64 bit...internet was working in 32 bit but when i connect me device to my 64 bit fedora 14 ....it shows your device isconnected.but when i used to ping google.comit shows unknown host google.comno web page is running in firefox too.i dont think it is 32 or 64 bit problem
I installed Fedora 15 today and after a few very long hours finally got the broadcom driver to work and my laptop is now connected to my router. Yay! But now when I try going to a website in firefox it says server not found. I can ping anything inside my network but when I try to ping outside the network, for example google, it says ping: unknown host google.com. So I thought it might be a DNS problem but the network settings point to the router for DNS so I'm not sure what else could be wrong. All of the other settings look correct.
I just got a new power supply in my old desktop, and installed ubuntu on it. I've got three NICs in there (for a later project), and when I connect my cable modem to any one of the NICs, then little connection triangle-spinny-thing in the upper-right tries to connect. But it never gets all the way connected.
just installed Ubuntu Netbook remix on my acer aspire one, and come across a problem Ive never faced before. Im able to Connect to my router (and access it through the internal ip address) but as soon as i try access anything outside of my network there is nothing!
This i found odd as first i thought it might have just been my Routers problem, but seeing as all my other computers were connected to it with no problems (wired and wireless) I quickly traced the problem back to the laptop.
After this i decided to see if after a simple update would fix the problem. so i connected it up through the Ethernet port once again it connects to the router but no internet! I have tried everything in my knowledge, but with no success!
Often i have an active connection on the tree network with an internet dongle according networkmanager, but ping is not working and firefox and thunderbird also don't have a connection. Skype however is working at that time. (testcall to skype is working) My present solution is to disconnect and connect a couple of times again until i can ping a commonserver on the internet, and then everything is working normal. Many are stating networkmanager is buggy, is this a known bug and is it worked on or do i need to install another program. Has any of you an idea what could be going on and how to solve it, permanently. In the way it's automatically right when connecting.
My dongle is of type: Huawei E 1550 and often i have a normal connection.
I can connect my wlan card to router (gateway) ,but I can't go to internet, pinging my router (and everything else) also falied. Same problem was with knoppix but with help of others i solved it modifing etc/reslove.conf IP address to my gateway (nameserver). At ubuntu resolve.conf seems ok, as there is already IP address of my gateway?
I am connected to my wireless network but can't connect to the internet. I have searched the ubuntu forums for solutions but none seem to work for me. I can post terminal outputs if required (I know that much).
I have installed ubuntu a few times in the past but if I've had to get messy with the command line I bailed. So given that I wanted to set up a home server/media center, I tried win server, but given research had told me that it is easier to accomplish all the features I wanted with Linux I decided the time had come to really see what I'd been missing out on. So what I am looking to accomplish is a full lamp stack, xbmc, samba, mail server, VMWare server, rtorrent, ftp, an probably a few others I have forgot because I can't get to my check list right now. Settled on ubuntu 10.10, had installed it a couple of times while it was still in beta, just to get a feel for it and get everything working so that when it was released I could do a fresh install knowing how to configure everything.
So on Sunday the time came. Everything was going fine until last night, I was installing roundtable webmail and all I came to download something and FireFox can't display any web pages, postfix can't deliver mail. The server can ping local machines but not google.com or another internet site, I can ssh into it an get a remote desktop session via various methods, both either over the local network, or internet. The website is getting served both locally or internet. I just cant seem to make any outbound connections to the outside world.
Im using a laptop with a wireless card inside it is a Realtek RTL8187B network adaptor. I go to wireless connections in the toolbar at the top of the screen and click on my internet modem and it says its connected. So I go to firefox and it brings up google. I try and do a search and it says something and at the bottom of the page it displays a button that says "Try Again". Im booting ubuntu from the cd drive so its not installed on my computer what should i be trying?
I have an old GX 159 Dell Desktop I tried to install Ubuntu 10.10 on it and it worked like charm the problem is when I connect my Alfa 1 wireless adapter and connect to the network it won't let me connect to the internet. Well I have been succeeded to connect to the weather center, but I can't update or open the Internet even if I have been able to open Hotmail.com after 2 minutes it won't open anything after that
Note: I didn't install the driver for adapter and I don't know how to do it because I tried before and I failed adding I used it on more than one distro. By the way it works perfect on Windows?
On the 25th of January, one of my computers randomly stopped being able to connect to the Internet. It was running a dual boot (Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS & Windows XP SP2), and is connected to the network via an ethernet cable (no wireless). According to the Network Manager, everything is working okay (there was no change from when I was able to access the Internet).
When I would use Firefox, I would get the message "Waiting for (page)...". However, this is not a Firefox only problem, as every program requiring Internet access (e.g. Evolution) is unable to connect to the Internet.
I compared the Internet settings to those of my father's Windows XP SP1 computer, which is able to connect to the Internet. There was no difference, except for the IP Address and Hardware Address. Because of this, I incorrectly deduced that either the actual Ethernet cable or the wall plug was faulty. I tried using a different cable and connecting to the Ethernet wall plug used by the aforementioned computer. Nothing changed. I was still unable to connect.
I didn't worry about it until Tuesday, when my other computer had exactly the same problem. It is running a triple boot between Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS, Ubuntu 9.04 and Windows XP SP2, and I am unable to obtain Internet access using any partition. As with the previous case, my computer showed no change in the Internet settings, and the computer also shows it as being connected to the network. It is also connected via an Ethernet cable.
I have a Toshiba Satellite L505D-GS6000, and I installed Ubuntu before and it worked flawlessly until I decided that I had to go back to Win7 because of certain program compatibility issues.I'm back here trying to set it up and am having no issues except for with my wireless. I can see all of the SSID's, I am able to connect to my wireless, and it displays that I have been assigned an IP and all of the other settings given by DHCP.
I have been trying to fix this for hours, googled, searched these forums, and have spent time with some people on the Ubuntu IRC channel and we are unable to come up with a fix.
The strange thing is that although nothing will load when I try to visit facebook.com, google.com, or any other website... I opened the update manager and I noticed that it would download for 30ish seconds, stop and do nothing for 60ish seconds, resume for another 30, stop, resume, etc. until it finished. I am able to ping my router, and 220.127.116.11, but I am unable to ping [URL].
I'm running a Natty machine wired to a TP-Link router (TL-WR841N) with additional Ubuntu and Windows machine on WiFi. Recently I've had some problems with connectivity on the Natty machine. Connectivity is fine as far as the router, but not beyond it. This applies to all browsers, Software Center, Aptitude and anything else you can think of. Now, normally at this point I would call my ISP, but the thing is, all other machines have connectivity. I've checked the cables twice and anyway, if it were them, I wouldn't be able to ping the router. Router has ping functionality to outside and it's working, have tried ubuntu.com and google.com. Also, connectivity between the wired and wireless machines is fine, pings are flying across the network beautifully.
