    can`t use static ip using 8.04

    I`m on a network where we have to use static ip. I can find the other computers in my network, but I can`t connect to internet, while the others can. I have found out that my dns can`t be changed with network manager. only ip and gateway. I have tried changing dns in the config file and using the terminal, but I`m not allowed to save changes. so what do I do now?

    If I understand you right you don't have a DHCP giving out addresses (and info) on your network so you want to set everything up manualy and you are having trouble with specifying DNS server?

    Do you have access to root (sudo) and what have you done so far?

    Regards,

    Re: can`t use static ip using 8.04

    I`ll post it when I come home. I think that it`s strange that I can see my shared files in my mediasenter pc, and play music and movies via the lan, but I can`t go to any websites. I have ubuntu installed beside windows xp pro. And in xp everyting works fine. let me xplain our network. it`s me and 3 more households that share one internet connection in lan. there is a wireless router in all houses, that are connected with cat5 cabel. my router is the router that is connected to the internet. I`ve taken some sceenshots of everything, but I don`t know where to upload it. one more thing. when I go to network tools and mark my device, and press configure, I get: The interface does not exist. Don`t realy understand anything.

    Did you try saving as a SuperUser(sudo)?

    Yes. when I open the config file, I`m not allowed to save it. I`ve looked on every guide I`ve found, and no luck so far.
