Hi TEP
I got a whole long list of packages that were automatically installed and are no longer required:
gstreamer0.10-ffmeg libhal1-flash libunshield0 unshield
Use 'sudo apt auto remove' to remove them.

there is more but I have a question
do I type sudo apt auto remove gstreamer0.10-ffmeg libhal1-flash libunshield0 unshield
?

okay I went ahead and tried and got a long list of commands

Just
Code:
sudo apt-get autoremove
should be sufficient. Then go ahead and
Code:
dhcpcd eth0
and assuming everything works, try
Code:
ping -c 3 www.google.com
. As long as it doesn't say "Network unreachable" or something similar, you should be connected

It suggested dhcpcd-gtk the following new packages will be installed:
dhcpcd5
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 46 not upgraded.
Need to get 149 kb of archive.
after this operation 371 kb of additional disk space will be used.
Err: 1 http:// archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial/universe amd64 dhspcd5 amd 6.10.1-1
temporary failure resolving 'archive.ubuntu.com'
E: Unable to fetch some archinves, maybe run apt-get update or try with -- fix missing?

Well duh of course I can not update because I can't get online??

Surely if you can download from an internet repository, your ethernet connection must be fully working?

BTW my PC does not have dhcpcd5 installed and
Code:
sudo dhclient eth0
gives
Quote:
Reloading /etc/samba/smb.conf: smbd.
RTNETLINK answers: File exists
/etc/resolvconf/update.d/libc: Warning: /etc/resolv.conf is not a symbolic link to /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf
I do have a /sbin/dhclient and a horribly complex /sbin/dhclient-script
If the latter was modified, I don't give much for your chances!

Have you tried looking at the configuration of your router using your good machine?
You are normally provided with a web interface to make this easy, but you will need to know the ip address of the router to do this.

BTW What is the make and model of your router?

Ha! I completely missed that! If he can download dhcpcd he must have connectivity XD.

Jeremy, just fyi, Dhclient and dhcpd are different utilities

Zupe, as I mentioned above dhclient is a separate utility. Please try dhcpcd instead

I put in
sudo dhcpcd eth0
and got sudo: dhcpcd: command not found

Okay so I can call actiontec to get the ip address for the modem/router

Checked paper folder would IP be
http://192.168.0.1
?

etho is spelt with a zero...
Look in the router manual.

http://192.168.0.1 is a very common router address.

From your PC's (both of them) you could try
Code:
ping 192.168.0.1
This will test for basic connectivity.
