    Help with internet

    okay... i used to dual boot ubuntu 9.something with my XP. i would actually switch the HDs around. I got another computer to put the linux HD in - similar in style. Both are dells.

    The problem is when i ran another ethernet cable to my linux from my router, i now have no internet on that machine.

    i have looked around on the treads and i have tried the code

    cat /etc/resolv.conf

    all it says it "Network Manager"

    I cant paste the output of large commands becasue i have to maunually type them in... any idea?

    Can you post the contents of this file
    Code:
    /etc/network/interfaces
    It is from 5 to 10 lines not to long if your concerned.

    Re: Help with internet

    I think we have a simple fix
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/network/interface
    Add at the end of the file add
    Code:
    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp
    Proof read save and close.
    Then in terminal
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig eth0 up
    Test your connection. If it's not working try a reboot.

    Did you edit the /etc/network/interfaces file ?
    I'm going to need to see the results from
    less /etc/network/interfaces>netwoked
    This command will deposit a text file in your home directory. Attach that file to your next post for review.

    Re: Help with internet

    Thank you MooPi! I was having the same problem - it seems to be resolved after editing the /etc/network/interfaces file and running the <ifconfig eth0 up>, etc. Hopefully it keeps working

    Thank you!

    i did the ifconfig command.. the output of the network doc reads:

    auto lo
    iface lo inet interface
    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp

    This will deposit text files in your home folder named mypci & mymods
