I am having a major issue right now. For the past few days I have been unable to access the internet. It just suddenly stopped working. I have tried to unplug the router and modem, but that didn't work. I am also unable to connect via ethernet cord. My roommate has no trouble connecting to the wireless, and my xbox can connect also. What's the issue. I just upgraded to intrepid, and the connection was working for a few days after that, then just stopped. I'm on my friends computer right now, but coppied the output of ifconfig to my flashdrive. My wireless usually connects to ath0.

Also, the network manager claims I am connected to either the wireless or wired network even though I am not.

Hmmm, I've seen this before... Déjà vu... Awe man! Ya dun went an broke da internets!


Anyway, you see the wifi0 adapter with the whacky mac address? That happened to me when udev was having shenanigans. It had something to do with the crappy PCMCIA wifi adapter I was using.

If I remember correctly, I forced a re detection of devices by nuking the udev rules and rebooting. Incidentally, I guarantee none of this. It was a fluke type of thing so if you try this and your entire college dorm explodes, I warned ya...

Find this file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
(make a backup!)
Nuke all entries pertaining to the broken devices (wifi0, ath0, your mom)
and reboot. Can't hurt to cross your fingers.

I deleted all contents of that file, but it still wont work.

OK... That isn't what I said to do but what does it look like now?
Also, post your old rules file.
Also, what does your ifconfig look like now? Throw in lspci, lsusb, and lspcmcia for good measure...

Also, what does it say when you do a /etc/init.d/networking restart
?

You may be dealing with one of these bugs. It is hard to tell...

Bump what? Are you accustomed to having people help you when you ignore what they say and/or only provide one fifth of what they ask you for?

It is kinda difficult to post output to commands when I can't connect to the internet on said computer.

I have a Debian Sarge Net Install Disk from like 3 or 4 years ago. Will I be able to upgrade to the latest Debian testing by just editing the /etc/apt/sources.list file? Or will there be major problems?

Ok. I'm running on a live cd. The internet is working, but the sound is not. I don't want to reinstall, then have to deal with not only reinstalling and reapplying all my cocnfigurations, but messing around with the sound to try to get it to work. Does ANYONE know of any file that I can copy over from the live cd to my installation that would fix this issue?

/etc/network/interfaces are the same on both.
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules are the same on both.
/etc/hosts are the same on both.
