    Re: wired says connected but can't connect to the internet

    Do you guys think this could be a netbios/zeroconfig issue. Since it connected earlier on the other laptop via dchp.
    Do you still have access to the old computer to grab the mac addy off it and then spoof it on the new computer? I think this device is trying to connect via netbios and/or mac addresses only. Your in real a pickle.

    in the wired section there is no mac address
    nothing in the cloned mac address
    the mtu says 1
    Add your mac address to the the empty field.
    it's the first line: Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr "mac address"

    Code:
    ifconfig -a
    check if your in the avahi group as well.

    Code:
    groups YourUserNameHere
    if none of the above gets you nowhere, I'm stumped.

    Re: wired says connected but can't connect to the internet

    Hey, I quickly looked at the thread you linked to, but haven't delved into it yet. The one thing I thought first is that I try to install packages but since I can't access the internet, the packages don't get to me, I've gotten messages to that effect.

    with the ranges of ips to try as you suggested last time....what are differenct combinations would you suggest? If you can give me some examples of what might work, let me know. For example, should I try 192.168.0.2 (or higher like 192.168.0.11), using the 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4? Or any other 192 ips addresses...

    And since the connection spins a bit, I feel at least there is more of a connection (yes, a non expert way of saying that), whereas before the message for "server not found" would come up immediately. I know we are close to this here because at least I connect right away, just not to firefox...and the internet....

    Re: wired says connected but can't connect to the internet

    The 192.168.0.x is the default ip range for most home networks.
    Without knowing the correct ip range it's a never ending guessing game.
    Seeing that this is a in house HPNA setup connecting to a MDU?/switch?/hub?/router?/windows box? only the system admin has the answer.

    If you still can't get online you could try the Link-local only in NM ipv4 settings tab.That's for ad-hoc and point-to-point connections without a dhcp server. That should give you an ip in the 169.254.0./16 range.
    But seeing how this a high turnover access point in a Inn, there has to be a dhcp server.

    Hi nativehound
    Changed the link local.
    I rebooted then clicked connection info and got the 169 ip number.
    ipv6 ignored
    It said what the driver is.
    And then what do I do now?

    Re: wired says connected but can't connect to the internet

    Thats a go time to try something else. Have you tried from the live cd? the older 10.04 live cd would be the choice. They changed a lot of stuff since. If you can get online with the live cd then we knows it something with your currant install. I think it has something to do with avahi/Netbios the Tut could be using unicast dns too.


    You can download winbind here:
    http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package...n/base/winbind

    Load it on a usb/phone or burn it to a disc.

    Re: wired says connected but can't connect to the internet

    firstly, I think I still have 10.10 on a disc. Should I try that? So now 11.10 is loaded on...so just reinstall completely with10.10? Let me know what I would do it from the live cd...I've never done that before - either with 10.10 or 11.10...so instructions would be helpful (yes, please write it down for me!)...


    secondly, also, can you explain a little bit about what winbind is exactly in laymans terms?

    So please explain what I would do after I burn it to a disc or usb....the instructions afterwards...

    Thanks for keeping the help going....must...connect...to ....internet.....
    Thanks.

    I would try 10.10 by booting to a desktop from the USB/disk and see if it gets you online. If so, install.
