    Question Can't get connect to internet on 10.04

    I'm on ver. 10.04 and I'm not that technical (though I know how to access a terminal but don't know anything much about commands). Suddenly lately I haven't been able to access the internet using Firefox or Evolution. Firefox comes up working offline. I can't access the router through my desktop either. It's a wired ethernet connection but I'm not sure what the settings are like now as I've now gone through several attempted changes to get it to work.
    I think I should have updated my os a while ago so I guess that's what I should do next if I get connected again. I've got successful access through a wired laptop connection to the same router.
    Could anyone help me get my connection back up?

    Thanks

    Please open a terminal on the 10.04 system and show these outputs:
    Code:
    uname -a
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
    lsusb
    lsmod
    iwconfig
    cat /etc/network/interfaces
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    ifconfig -a

    Thanks for replying, I hope you can help! Here's the output though I seem to have lost the formattting in the table part. If it matters maybe you could suggest how I transfer the info from ubuntu to windows programs:

    You need nameservers:
    Code:
    echo -e "nameserver 8.8.8.8\nnameserver 8.8.4.4" | sudo tee -a /etc/resolv.conf
    sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
    Remove the profiles in "cable" and "DSL" in the network-manager applet and reboot.

    Re: Can't get connect to internet on 10.04

    Should i have typed in the code literally as shown or change the 8.8.8.8 and 'namserver' parts with my info?
    I also did what you asked in the network manager parts.
    But after the reboot I still have the same problem and no profiles are showing in the network manager (if they're supposed to reappear?)

    Do you use a single modem or a router? Did you receive Login/password of your ISP?

    It's a router. But the browser won't connect to the router's address (and I've unchecked 'work offline') I've got the login/password for the router, I have a separate one for my broadband supplier account and another for host of my mailboxes.

    I've solved this problem by downloading a new version of Ubuntu! Thanks for your interest and help. I'm really really sorry for not clearing this thread up earlier.
