how to connect to internet using wired LAN.....specify settings in connection manager
everything works good in windows environment. still in ubuntu 9.1 which i am using , cannot access internet using connection manager. pls tell me step by step procedure
I am using ubuntu 8.04
If you have broadband then you plug one end of your ethernet cable in RJ45 connector at back of CPU & another into port on the wall.
Let us say your networking is disabled then
On your desktop right click on nm-applet(computer connection icon on top right panel) & select enable networking.There will be circular animation in that icon.Let it end.
Now right click on nm-applet & select connection information.
if IP address,broadcast address,subnet mast etc. is not 0.0.0.0 then your internet will work.
left click on nm-applet & select wired network.
Now it should work.
if all this does not work then left-click on nm-applet & select manual configuration within which you have to provide dns server,IP address,subnet mask,gateway address etc..
Note down all these things from your working windows.
(1)In windows go to control panel>network connections & double-click the LAN to find ip address,subnet mask,default gateway in support tab of status window.
(2)In command prompt of windows run command 'ipconfig' (without quotes).
Hope , it helps.
i've already done, what you said . But still i cannot connect to internet
is there any setting remaining other than what you said till now. If yes then pls do tell me abt that...
You can give more detail about your connection type (like ADSL modem or dial-up),ethernet card inside your CPU so that you get more relevant replies.
