Alright, I've recently switched to Verizon FiOS 3 months ago and I have a Dell Latitude X1 laptop running Ubuntu 11.10 server edition. I mainly use it as an FTP server but wanted to setup OpenSSH. I went to download it and the connection failed. I then tried pinging google
and it failed as well. It says
What is strange is that I can connect to my FTP server from an outside network at least last week it did. I only have one setting set on my router to allow the ftp through. I cannot get my laptop running server 11.10 out to the Internet. I need to do updates and download OpenSSH server and client. What can I do? I think its my laptop since I've tried the cable its plugged into on another computer and it works fine.
On a side note, if the mods want I can create a new thread for this. I wish to setup the WiFi on this laptop but have no idea how to install the WiFi drivers through command line in Linux if its even possible.
