Internet Connectivity Issues


I recently downloaded the 2009 beta version and installed it onto a USB drive. The computer I'm using is an Acer Aspire One Netbook which has a network card toggle switch on the front. Well I entered in the WEP key and it says I have full connectivity and everything is working fine. But when I try to connect to anything online it just times out and says Page Load Error. One thing that I did notice is that normally while running Windows, there is a blinking light on my network card signaling that there is connectivity. Yet there is none while running Incognito. Could this mean there is a driver issue? I have tried to toggle the switch but it has no effect.
I checked my IP via KNetworkManager and it's saying that my IP is that of my router, 192.x.x.x and not what it is normally, 206.x.x.x. So is there a way I can manually change the IP so it's correct?

Having a 192.168.x.y IP address and a router is normal. An address starting with 206. would only be good if you didn't have a router. In fact, if you connect to your router, the ISP side of the router will have an IP address assigned by your ISP.

You need to do some P.D. Open a konsole, and try using the ping command to see how far you can get. Usually your router will have an address like 192.168.x.1. The 'x' may be a 0 or 1, or any value up to 254, it can be set by the user. Have you ever configure it? If not, you will have factory defaults. Look in the owners manual, it may be on a CD that came with the router. Once you know the IP address of the router, then try a ping. It will look like this:

Quote:
ping 192.168.1.1
PING 192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 192.168.1.1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.800 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.1.1: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.461 ms
The top line I entered. The next lines are my router responding to the ping. My systems IP address is 192.168.1.26. Only the last part is different.

If that works try to ping google. Example...

Quote:
ping www.google.com
PING google.navigation.opendns.com (208.69.36.230) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 208.69.36.230: icmp_seq=1 ttl=56 time=56.0 ms
64 bytes from 208.69.36.230: icmp_seq=2 ttl=56 time=55.4 ms
Note, this time I didn't use the IP address, but relied on the DNS servers to give me the IP address. As you can see, google is 208.69.36.230. If this doesn't work, try a 'ping 208.69.36.230' ( without quotes ). If that works, you know you have a DNS problem. Simply put, you will need to find out what DNS IP addresses your ISP needs you to use, and define them in your system. Some routers will pass the using system the correct DNS addresses, some do not.

Have a go at it, post back how far you can get.

Well when I try to ping my router I get
Quote:
From 192.168.1.100 icmp_seq=x Destination Host Unreachable
With x just being the amount of times it's tried.
And google.com brings back. Also with any other website I try
Quote:
ping: unknown host google.com
So I tried the IPs of my other computer which is on, and google, and they just burst into a very fast wall of text saying
Quote:
From 192.168.1.100 icmp_seq=1 Destination Port Unreachable

I was also wondering how to enable the Root account. I tried to add debugmode to the kernel command line in the boot menu like it said in another thread, but nothing happened. Any tips on that?


Never mind, I figured it out

Please post the output of the commands:
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig
and
Code:
/usr/sbin/lspci

ping won't work since ICMP is blocked for the non-private IP space. This is to prevent potential leaks from protocols that Tor cannot handle (i.e. everything that isn't TCP/IP).

Neither eth0 or wlan0 has an IP address. There is no way you can ping anything without addresses.

Which interface are you trying to get working? The wired lan eth0 or the wireless lan, wlan0???

Could you run the command '/sbin/lsmod' and post the results? Suspect you do not have the modules loaded to run the cards. Or have you compiled the support into the kernel?
