Hi all! I have a problem connecting to internet - I can't connect to internet at all!. I have a DSL (with dhcp) connection and 2 pcs are connected to it via ethernet switch. I have tried Ubuntu (6.06 up to 8.04), Knoppix 5.3.1 and had openSUSE 10.3 installed for a while. I've tested LiveCDs on both pcs, have tried connectding pcs directly to DSL modem, but the network still isn't working! So, currently i'm running xp :-/ (of course, internet on xp works only after install of proper drivers). I have 2 network cards for this PC: Intel Pro/100 & Realtek RTL 8139. Oh, and when the linux is running all the `link` lights (on both network switch & network card) are on. Also, I connected my work laptop (opensuse 10.3) to my home DSL modem, and there also was no connection!
What could be the problem here? Cause I really want to switch to linux @ home. I ran ifconfig on ubuntu 8.04 livecd (on both network cards) and here are the results:
OK, I installed Ubuntu 8.10, disabled IPv6 and enabled dhcp. But still nothing is working. In the upper right corner it shows that `network connections are disconnected` Also, I tried to connect my PC directly to modem, but it's still the same.
Settings for eth0:
Supported ports: [ TP MII ]
Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
Advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
Supports Wake-on: g
Current message level: 0x00000007 (7)
Link detected: yes
i re-installed ubuntu 8.10 & spared some GBs for XP. But there was strange thing. Wen ubuntu was connecting to eth0, it showed, that 126 updates are avaliable (in a list). But when I tried to install them, there were some error messages (disconnected etc). I guess it downloaded the list from the internet right?
and address for Intel Pro/100 card is the same in ubuntu & winXP - 00:11:25:6f:1d:5c
and address for Realtek card is also the same in both systems - 00:08:54:3d:e2:57
check your dsl modem configuration and make sure it is configured for pppoe and dhcp is enabled.(if it is configured for bridge mode this setup will not work you have to put bridge with the box which is dialing the connection.)
now enable dhcp in your linux box, and browse the internet.
