    Internet won't work

    I have installed ubuntu 6.06 on a thirteen years old Toshiba Satellite laptop with 256kb ram. Nearly all appears well except....

    There is a Network Connection: eth0 to the ADSL router. Firefox can access the router admin at 192.168.1.1

    BUT Firefox (or Evolution) cannot connect to the internet. The Toshiba can see other computers connected to the router and the other computers connected to the router and on the network continue to connect to the internet as usual.

    Can anyone please advise ?

    With thanks

    when connected what do you get from the following commands

    Code:
    ifconfig
    Code:
    ping www.google.com

    Re: Internet won't work

    ok, so you appear to definately be connected to the actual internet. sounds more like a firefox problem to me.

    here's a dumb but valid point as i have often overlooked it myself.....is your firefox set to work in Offline mode (File -> Work Offline)? i had a period where firefox always started in offline mode whether i was connected or not. took me a while to figure it out too.... >_<

    failing that how do other browsers fair?

    Re: Internet won't work

    Thanks - it is definitely on-line.
    I will check another browser.

    Re: Internet won't work

    It looks like getting another browser is a bit tricky since I'm not on-line.

    Re: Internet won't work

    haha, i didnt think of that......although, if you can ping google, you should be able to download from the repos.

    try
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install kazehakase
    this will (might hehe) install the kazehakase browser, try it and see if it works.....

    Arrow Re: Internet won't work

    Hi Again

    There is a happy ending (restart).

    Summary:
    I installed ubuntu 6.06 (from a downloaded Live CD) onto a 7 years old Toshiba Satellite (S2800-500) laptop with 256kb ram.
    (Sorry I hastily said before it was 13 years old).
    The reason I chose 6.06 was because of my limited RAM. The more recent Live CD versions appeared to require more than 256kb RAM.

    6.06 installed OK except I could not get the internet up in spite of all your help. We tried.

    I tried openSUSE in various forms and got the internet up with a few tweaks (disable IPv6) but got other problems (including sound).

    I downloaded Ubuntu 8.04, yes Hardy Heron. I chose the alternate CD option which said it needed a minimum 256kb ram.
    The Live CD needed 384kb RAM.

    Result:
    IT ALL WORKED straight out of the box.
    It's a bit slow (Pentium III) but it all works.

    It runs like a dream.

    Thanks again for your help.
