I am playing around with Ubuntu Server (no desktop environment) 12.04.3 LTS.
I set everything up and HAD a working wirless network connection.
I then ran
And when the system came back up it hung on something like "configuring network interface / connection." I have never been able to connect again.Code:sudo shutdown now -r
I am somewhat new to terminal-only stuff, but I tried messing around with "ifconfig" "iwconfig" etc.
The terminal took it and the changes were reflected in iwconfig but I still have no internet connection.Code:sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid "MYIDHERE" key s:MYPASSHERE
How can I go about troubleshooting this thing?
I have "links" installed for web browsing and it is not connecting, nor can I "ping" anything.
I am wanting to learn how to work in the terminal and do not have Gnome or KDE installed, so please let me know how to proceed.
I tried googling an answer but I'm not sure exactly what to follow. I have seen mention of "dhclient." What is it and how does it work? Also, I tried:
Just trying to reset the network adapter, similar to "ipconfig /release /renew" in Windows command line.Code:sudo ifconfig wlan0 down sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
Thanks in advance for the help!
