Hi all,

just installed Ubuntu Netbook remix on my acer aspire one,
and come across a problem Ive never faced before. Im able to Connect to my router (and access it through the internal ip address) but as soon as i try access anything outside of my network there is nothing!
This i found odd as first i thought it might have just been my Routers problem, but seeing as all my other computers were connected to it with no problems (wired and wireless) I quickly traced the problem back to the laptop.

After this i decided to see if after a simple update would fix the problem. so i connected it up through the Ethernet port... once again it connects to the router... but no internet!

I have tried everything in my knowledge, but with no success!
please help me put the 'Net' back in my 'Netbook'... other wise its just a book... and we know how boring they are!

Any suggestions would be much appreciated

Thanks in advance, William

That's an Atheros AR5001 wireless, which I haven't worked with, but there are several threads about those if you search this forum for "atheros AR5001". The stuff in green is for your Atheros (Attansic) AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 cabled ethernet connection (which does not look like it is connected to anything).

The RX/TX stuff makes it look like you are getting a little bit of wireless connection over the network. The signal to "irvine wireless" is a little weak, and the 12 Mb/sec is a slow speed by modern standards.

The "ath5k" stuff are the wireless modules- several associated modules are loaded by the "ath5k" wireless module. I'm not sure if this is the correct setup since I haven't worked with those, but finding an "atheros AR5001" thread here will likely help (maybe just link to your post with the output, or my interpretation of it here).

At this point, it looks more like a slow/weak connection problem than a no-connection problem to me.

Here are some threads here about Atheros AR5001 wireless:

thanks for that.

well after looking around several sites and on several different forums, i noticed that im defiantly not the only one having this problem. only problem is that in most other case the people having the same problems as me can access the internet through their ethernet cable which leaves me in a bit of a hole.

one suggestion i have seen is that i should install the madwifi drivers, (my other computers have internet access, would this work?). although im not sure if this is the problem as the wireless is actually connecting to the router (being able to access it). so i agree with "northd_tech" on this... my internet is connected, just extreamly slow (update from last post is i have been able to access the google homepage a couple of times, but if i try to go any further no page will load).

another suggestion ive had is to install the wicd network manager as apprantly the preinstalled one dosent work with some wireless devices. one problem with this is that the installation and downloading has to be done through the terminal, which is a problem because... once again i cant access the internet!!!

arrrrggghhh.....! it feels like im going in circles!
almost ready to install 9.04 Netbook remix and see if i have any luck with that!

Thankyou once again, keep the ideas coming!

E: forgot to say,the reason that the ethernet didnt seem to be connected to anything was because it wasnt! only have wireless running at the time of testing, happy to post results with ethernet cable plugged in if you want

A couple more things to check: route -n and contents of /etc/resolv.conf

/etc/resolv.conf only has one file in it called update-libc.d

and route -n shows

Sorry to hijack the thread, william.

I'm having a similar problem - my wired internet seems to work though.

I have an Asus eeePC 901 running UNR Karmic, and it seems to have died after installing some updates today, including the most recent kernel.

Connects to network no worries, but Firefox and Thunderbird (as well as the Ubuntu update manager) all time out.

Below are my diagnostics:

Thanks in advance for any help.

/etc/resolv.conf only has one file in it called update-libc.d /etc/resolvconf is a directory - /etc/resolv.conf is (or should be) a file containing nameservers. route looks OK!

well guys, seemed to have fixed the problem. My Firefox is now working fine.

but still have the issue with updates. i cant update or install any programs, not through the software center or the terminal.
have checked and double checked the software sources, even trying from overseas servers, but without any luck.
Any help much appreciated
