Hii all.. I am just new in Linux. I have just installed ubuntu 12.04 (32 bit)in dual boot mode with Windows 7 (64 bit). I have net connection in windows through cable. I want to get it in Linux also. What to do?
Distribution: OpenSUSE 13.2 64bit-Gnome on ASUS U52F
Did you install it on a Laptop or a Desktop? Is this cable the actual wire from your router to the computer or is a cable company that is also internet provider? please provide more information for better help.
Sorry. I am new in this forum. So sometimes my reply is odd. However, I have Windows 7 (64 bit)in my desktop. I installed ubuntu 12.04 in dual boot mode with it. After installation, I went to system settings, network, clicked on wired connection. Then set up IP address, netmask, gateway and saved the settings. It is showing 'connected' status. I restarted my computer. But after that webpages are not opening. Thanks...
There is something not right with the network connection information you provided your system. The ip address, gateway and netmask. Think of it as two computers on one network having the same ip address, there is some conflict that is going on and this is why you can connect to the network but not to the world wide web.
Also you really should not have to do it manually, there should be a service that can figure it out for you "dhcp". My suggestion, now that you have put in a static IP, remove all the information you put in there and see if you can run it again automatically. Sometimes setting up a static ip, then removing it will get the system to auto config your connection again.
Overall, if you post the information everyone needs we can all diagnose any aspect of your connection. The codes may seem confusing, but you take a min. to run them through the terminal, and post what the terminal shows. You can save the output to a txt file, or a simple copy and paste.
