No internet connection in JAUNTY


Hello,
Can't connect to internet. I can't ping anything.
I had to remove HDD to access another one.When I re-installed 9.04,
no internet
I have the feeling my dreaded embedded Intel chipset is the culprit.
Typing on a PS3 controller!

Since you say this has happened "again", you know that we need much more information than this and you know what sort of info we need. You cannot expect us to hunt through past posts to find out what your hardware and connection methods are.

And by the marvels of LQ's search, here's the link to your previous thread, where your problem was solved.

Perhaps you just need to re-read it ?

by the way...

My problem above was in reference to setting the resolution for my monitor. I haven't been able to post info since I can't connect to the internet. I can only relay info from memory.

I haven't checked the x.org file since I didn't think it was related.
I looked through my dmesg and ifconfig. Most of it is Chinese to me but I did notice somewhere that it said DISABLING IRQ #9. Is that normal?

I can't ping anything.

Sorry, that's all I remember right now.

Thank you

what is your output for ifconfig? do you have an IP address at all? how is your network set up? DHCP or static?
we need more info please.

If you cannot get CLI outputs to us there is not much we can do for you, surely you realise this?
You have to get removable media working or find a way to photograph the screen (yuck!)
What do you mean by "ps3 doesn't see it"? What are you expecting?

c'mon ben, you've been around long enough to know better than this!

Removable media:
put the stick in, check dmesg to see what happens.

Internet:
You say this is a PS3? What is the connection method? Is it wireless? Ethernet? Carrier pigeon? What?
How are you trying to use the connection? What happens when you do this?

Googling for ubuntu on a ps3 shows me stuff like this:

Perhaps you could borrow a (old) computer somewhere that you can go on internet with and a have a working keyboard for easier communication here until we help solve your problem(s).

dmesg & ifconfig

OK. I've managed to upload my dmesg and ifconfig output.

Anyone see anything strange. I hope so.

Thanx.

your ifconfig.txt file is empty.

dmesg looks very different from mine but I find I need help interpreting this file so I am of no use for you there

could you provide us more info such as hardware specs and your current os? be as precise and informative as you can, otherwise this is no use, not for me anyway.

The ethernet card is recognised and a driver assigned.

But - there are messages associated with resume from suspend - where it fails right after tha above step. Do a complete shutdown.

[   32.452414] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready
This is the link not ready problem - there are odd drm errors.

I'll have to look into those later - unless someone beats me to it.
We need that ifconfig data.

[Update] drm errors are associated with a bug with the intel driver.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...el/+bug/341363
... probably indicates virtual terminal switching (ctrl+alt+F-keys) perhaps in order to get a terminal from which to try ifconfig command or something else.

Does not seem related to network. This takes us to:

ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready

http://linux.derkeiler.com/Mailing-L.../msg02288.html
... places the blame firmly in the udev rules - follow the thread for fix suggestions.

If this is what is happening, then another network device may be interfering.
What happens if you disable bluetooth?

more info

Ok. Hopefully my dmesg has something in it. I'm attaching my lspci also.

Also, when I boot my computer I get the line:

ACPI: Cannot set Allocation Description Tables. ?



And if I don't move my mouse around, the computer doesn't "go".

Thanx.

I can see in your ifconfig file that your eth0 (the wired connection) does not seem to be configured and/or physically connected. I would check network settings and check the cable.

but there is something odd in dmesg although I don't know what to do with it, perhaps Simon Bridge does, I have learned a few things from him not long ago.

also to Simon:

This is the link not ready problem - there are odd drm errors.
I have a very similar output here in my dmesg:
Code:

and my system (acer laptop) works fine. I have seen this in someone else's dmesg as well.

I think this is the weirder part of ben44's dmesg output:
