Now, let's not be hasty...

Do you know where this is coming from in the computer and what it sounds like?

I was not trying to be rude. My first post failed due to timeout and I didn't notice. Regarding losing this computer; I was able to ping the router, but for some reason (short between the keyboard and the chair I suspect)I was no longer able to reach this computer. this is no longer the case.
Regarding the funny sound; Although the 10.04 box is noisy. There is nothing new; loud cpu fan loud psu..... I was simply stating my level of frustration.

Thank you for your time and knowledge

No, I didn't think you were rude. I was trying to apply a little humor into the situation and perhaps I did it the wrong way. Believe me, I know about anger and frustration! But it's something that the Lord been working in me and helping me to overcome these last few years and to be free of it.

Concerning the issue with your internet connection, are you using the 64 bit or the 32 bit version of Ubuntu? Your issue kind of reminds me of a problem another member had and if you're using the 64 bit version, I wonder if using the 32 bit version would solve it? Please take a look at the threads here and here.

Regards...

old tech here. Hardware is a minimum of 14 years old. I originally put it together and ran mandrake 8.2 on it. last time I had it up and running I had to wipe the mandrake and load 10.04 due to connectivity issues (odd isn't it). However that was at least one possibly two routers ago. I have tried to get this connected on this router before, unsuccessfully. I had my xp rig so it wasn't pressing....

sorry i cannot add anything constructive to this thread, but in that case i think you're better off looking for something slightly newer.
my rule of thumb is 10 years max.
anyhow, running a graphical desktop of even a lightweight current distro would probably be a pain, if not impossible (gpu support).
but the biggest problem is the internet of 2016, which simply cannot be represented fully on a machine from ~2000. and will bring it to its knees.

edit:
i don't want to pollute your thread anymore, so i'm hoping you'll notice this edit.
i must say, a desktop computer that age, esp. a gamer's, might be significantly more powerful than, say, a laptop from that era.
so, partly disregard my rant.
yes, the rig should suffice.
my internet remark was about sites laden with scripts and CSS that can require quite a bit of cpu/gpu power these days. just one random example.

I do have slightly newer. However, I essentially operate with my wife's hand-me-downs (she's a gamer). I was using essentially this same hardware three years ago running xp. I don't play a lot of games, the ones that I do play are not hardware intensive. I do research on the net. this does not require a lot of horsepower. This rig is a stop-gap until I can repair/upgrade (fiscal issues). I do know that IPv4 still works, so this rig should suffice in the interim. Plus, linux is a good answer to old hardware, as it is not as overhead intensive. Further, it's kind of a principle thing at this point.

Back to the issue at hand.

I physically removed the wireless lan card from the system. System start up is still not initializing eth0.

ifconfig -a shows eth0 without an ip or subnet. I have even removed the static ip and applied DHCP, rebooted repeatedly.

Any more suggestions, besides "scrap the dinosaur"?

still hoping to find a solution.

That being said, I am working on Ondoho and Ardvark's suggestions.
I've swapped HD's on the xp rig. fixing to DBAN the HD and then install 15.10
someone had suggested 14.? but I'd already downloaded 15.10 Seriously bad bandwidth issues w/satellite I don't recommend it if you have another option.

Thanks to everyone for their input and assistance

so as far i understand the situation:
  • you're still on ubuntu 10.04. that has to change if you plan on using this machine longer.
  • we are talking about a wired (ethernet) connection here.
  • the non-connectivity has changed to painfully slow connectivity

i had another look at your post #16.

esp. the last point on my list, it seems that problems with your realtek RTL-8169 are not uncommon.
please keep in mind that any update attempt is doomed to fail because the distros repos aren't available anymore, and just installing something else has, well, i high failure rate.

as to installing some other distro; the output of
Code:
lspci
or a short summary by you would help us assess the capabilities of the computer.
despite its having been a game rig, i suspect that even the lightweight *buntus are not light enough.
also, ubuntu is known to not care for old hardware.

Since your network card is showing up this should be pretty simple:

First check layer 1; is your cable good? [now I see the "link up" so, yes]
Then from the command line, type:
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.114/24 up
route add default gw 192.168.1.1

If the ifconfig command fails (older OS's don't understand the /24) use:
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.114 netmask 255.255.255.0 up

... of course, substitute your proper IP info.
One thing to watch out for is that your network config (from the modem) is really a "/24" subnet. Sometimes the satellite modem configs are setup for a /27 or /26 or .... You should log into your modem and double check this. If the computer and the modem don't match this will cause a failure during the arp process (mapping layer 2 to layer 3).

Once the IP config is correct try pinging your modem. If that is successful try pinging 8.8.8.8 (no DNS yet). If that works then try pinging www.google.com.

Update:

Regarding the original system my query involved: Either the vid card or the old monitor has gone tits up.
The newer xp rig is tied up with DBAN for the next 24 hrs or so. after which I am going to be installing 15.10

MikeDeltaBrown: thank you for the input. I'm not certain that I understand the /24(/26 /27) part, but I'm certain the this information will be quite useful within the next 48 hours or so.

Again, thanks to all of you for your input.

while the problem is not solved, it is moot. 15.10 installed beautifully and connected flawlessly

Hi...

I'm glad you found a solution, though.
