No network connection seen with Toshiba Satellite and Ubuntu 9.10
Hi all. Been about 2 yrs since I've used Linux. I have a Toshiba Satellite C855-S5214 about 6 months old. Simply can't see an ethernet connection. Winblows works fine. Network tools only shows loopback. IFconfig can't seem to see anything. Any help? Or ideas? Laptop on a wireD connection.
thanks for the help ...... please respond here or to firstname.lastname@example.org
Ubuntu 9.10 reached end of life a year and a half ago. I searched the Ubuntu site and documentation for 9.10 is hard to find.
It shouldn't be too different from 8.04, for which documentation is still available: https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/serverg...iguration.html
It's possible that, if the computer is only six months old, the networking devices are too new for Ubuntu 9.10. Try running the command lspci in a terminal and seeing whether it reports the network devices. You might also try a Live CD of something much more recent to test whether the networking is detected.
Let us know what you find.
Thanks Frank ....
To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo <command>".
See "man sudo_root" for details.
