I'm not sure, if we have some misunderstanding. But Linux is installed to a different computer which is not the same computer that is running Windows.
Hi...

I'm not sure what you mean here. The command I gave above is for Linux, regardless of what computer it's installed on or if you're dual booting with Windows. Try the following command instead ans see if that works...

Code:
sudo ifup eth0
Regards...

Hi,

Code:
sudo ifup eth0

Ignoring unknown interface eth0=eth0
Is it Linux or some hardware issue? Like some hardware is broken?

Hi...

I don't think your adapter is broken, something's either wrong with your copy of Lubuntu or there was a glitch in how it set up (or didn't set up) your devices.

I would first check the md5 checksum of the .iso you burned your copy of Lubuntu from, if possible. Or you can try burning from a new .iso, verifying the checksum issued by the Lubuntu team against your new copy before you burn it. If that doesn't work, you can try another distribution or one of the suggestions I mentioned in my first post.

Regards...

Hi,

I tried to reinstall my current version of Lubuntu and also tried an other version of Lubuntu as well as a total different distribution. I've checked them all as mentioned, there haven't been any errors to it and the numbers matched. But the system always tells me that I'm offline now and I still wasn't able to access the internet.

I already tried to set the connection up manually as well as automatically.

What makes you sure, that the adapter isn't the problem?
The device is very old now, its running a Pentium 4 M, thats how old it is.
The fan needs to run all the time at full speed otherwise its getting way to hot.
And the video card sometimes got the "Geforce video card problem" I mean that issue that can be fixed by baking it in the oven (maybe you heard about it).
Beside being used as testing maschine, the device also performed as mobile movie player. It was always treated well, but maybe it got damaged by vibration on a travel.

You seem to have knowledge about Lubuntu, and since nothing worked I thing its a hardware issue.

Hi...

Perhaps I was wrong but this entire time I was going along with the understanding that you also had Windows installed on the computer in question and that it worked with Windows. Am I correct?

If not, then I would agree, it sounds like a hardware issue that could require a motherboard replacement. But on a system that old, I doubt it would be worth the expense.

Regards...

Hi,

its like this. Linux was installed on an old separate computer. While my current computer using Windows. But both computers used the same router to connected to the internet. With one difference, the old Linux computer failed. So it was all the time about two computers.
Anyway I'll keep on using Linux and if I have any more issues or questions I'll ask you or the community.
Thank you for trying to help me and spending your time.

You have to prepend sudo, as in:

Code:
sudo ifup eth0
You have to prepend sudo to all administrative commands...
