View Full Version : [all variants] Networking issue after update

January 19th, 2009, 01:53 PM
I just used the update manager to install some updates for ubuntu, and after restarting networking is messed up. It claims to be connected to the wired connection, and my router confirms, but I am unable to connect to any computer on the network, or the internet.

This is with Ubuntu 8.10

What's the output of <ifconfig> and <iwconfig>. Can you ping the router?

I figured out the problem after reinstalling, when it happened again. One of the applications I had installed ipmasq.

I realized this when I was getting operation not permitted on pings.

All it took to fix it was sudo apt-get remove ipmasq
