View Full Version : [ubuntu] can't connect to internet after acpi update

Yesterday I installed, I think it was, an acpi update with update manager. It was the only update available, so I'm fairly certain the problem is down to that.

Since I restarted, I can't connect to the internet. I can connect to the network, and it says there is network activity both ways, but I can't connect to the internet or intranet. Firefox and opera just hang on a blank white screen.

I am on a university network, so I have to log in through the intranet (and through a proxy server I think), but doing this has never been a problem before.

How weird that it fixed itself after a few reboots.. I just hope it continues to work when I start it up again tomorrow!
