    Red face Cant connect to the internet!!!

    Hi guys,



    I recently upgraded Ubuntu 9.10 from 9.04 but I was unable to connect to the internet. I have a ppp connection and I used to make a DSL connection and then give the command 'sudo pon ppp0' and the net got connected but in Karmic Koala it just doesnt click. I switched back to 8.04 and its working fine with 'Roaming mode enabled'. There is no problem with my connection. And also if it gave some problems then I used to delete all the connections I made and then reboot and then 9.04 would make a connection by itself but 9.10 doesnt. I installed 9.10 within windows using wubi. Please help as to how should I connect to internet in 9.10? I am attaching the ppp0 file so u may suggest the right connection for me if I am wrong.

    Are you able to ping any sites? e.g.

    ping www.google.com

    did you type

    ping www.google.com

    into a terminal. That should tell you if you are receiving data from outside.

    Or did you try from the browser?

    Testing from a terminal window is a better indication.

    I tried opening it from browser. But the icon was flashing that Wired Connection is disconnected.
