Cool no internet ubuntu 8.10


Thumbs down no internet ubuntu 8.10
Hi everyone my problem is as follows. I duel boot with XP/UBUNTU 8.10 my problem is I cannot get any internet access. XP allows me access but not Ubuntu I use a maxon bp3-ext with bigpond. Remember I have no access with Ubuntu so I cannot download programmes.
The next problem I also have a HP Pavilion dv600 laptop I would like to use a linux based operating system with this but until I solve my net access problem I cannot change. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Terry

No internet on latest linux versions

Hi,

I have a similar problem, when I install a 'latest' Linux flavour (I have tried Ubuntu 8.10, fedora 10, suse 11 and Linux Mint 6) I have no internet access. However, the little icon in the status bar says I have a connection. But when I enter a URL in a browser (firefox 3) I get a 'server not found' error each time.
When I revert to an older linux (in my case ubuntu 7.10) I have no problem accessing the internet. All works fine.

Do these latest Linux flavours have some default security or firewall setting that I am not aware off which are not present in the older versions ? They detect the connections but seem unable to send any requests.

Any ideas ?

Thanks,

Patrick

pdemaers,

Please start a new thread for your problem, instead of hijacking this one.

Thank you

How is this hijacking ... ?

How do you mean hijacking. I have a very similar problem (actually the same problem) as the original poster and just wanted to share my situation in order to broaden the net while trying to get a solution. Why should I start a new thread for something that looks like the same problem ?

Cheers,

Patrick

@brotell/pdemaers:

Post the output of:
ifconfig -a
iwconfig -a

I'm sure we can help both of you.

I'm sure you know that you can download the files to a usb drive or something to get it to work.

Here is the info

Hi,

not sure if this info is relevant anymore as I have reverted to Ubuntu 7.10 and I have a working internet connection. I need this box as a local test machine for my website development so as long as apache, php and mysql are working its fine. I use the internet connection to download software for installation/testing purposes and I can always do that from another box. But here is the requested info anyway:

~$ ifconfig -a

I hope this helps ... If I can get this working I could still upgrade to more recent version of Ubuntu (or other distro).

Thanks !!

@pdemaers:
I see you have a "Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5782" which is supported by linux...You could always try debian. they just release their latest version the other day.
Sorry this isn't a good answer...

try:
Code:
sudo dhclient eth0
this will try and force it to connect.

If it fails, then post the output.

also, the file "/etc/network/interfaces" should have an entry that looks something like this:
Code:
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Try any other LiveCD and look the module of eth0.
I recommended Mandriva live or PCLinuxOS.
