I REALLY need some help on this if at all possible!
Ive installed ubuntu server on a cruddy, but very much usable PC.
My issue is split into two areas:
A) Once working but now not, i cannot ping out to anything on the Inet. I can ping other PC's attatched to my network but if i ping google i get:
root@server1:~# ping google.com
ping: Unknown host google.com
or if i ping googles IP: (i have to ctrl+c to stop it)
root@server1:~# ping 126.96.36.199
80 packets transmitted, 0 recieved, 100% packet loss, time 78988ms
B) Even when i could ping google and ping the inet my apt-get update would fail major time, i would always get:
W: you may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
E: some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
Please, if you could give me any input i would be amazingly greatful!
Note: im new to this so dont flame me to harshly
