View Full Version : [ubuntu] No internet after new NIC install

I am running a file server, a Ubuntu desktop, Windows desktop and a laptop.

I have just installed a new Netgear (RTL88169)Gigabit NIC which appears to be working for file sharing but - on the Intrepid based desktop which has the new NIC - without any connections to the internet or email systems.

Obviously I have missed something, or don't yet have the ability to spot the problem. Hence this plea for help.

For your information I show the contenets of the amended sections.

so you can stay in the network but not get out, possible DNS issue, have you tried pinging? what kind of router do you have? 198.168.0 is abnormal most routhers default to 192.168.1/100 or 192.168.254/255

First; my apologies for not coming back sooner. My wife has ulcers on her feet and they've been rather a nuisance to her over the last few days.

Second; The router address is correct at 192.168.0.1 it is a Netgear DG834PN.

Third; With regard to http://74.125.45.100 I could ping the address but not open it.

Fourth; Yesterday I noticed that the Ubuntu desktop was not recognizing a usb and an esata hard drive. Later I re-enabled the old (onboard) lan interface in the bios and to my surprise found that everything was working again. I then disabled the onboard lan and the problems began again.

Fifth; Today I downloaded some 20 updates and suddenly all seems to be working again - with the onboard lan disabled.

I have absolutely no idea whether this has permanently solved whatever the problem is/was but it certainly appears to have done so at the moment.

Thank you for your help
