View Full Version : [ubuntu] no internet after update

March 3rd, 2009, 06:50 PM
Hey everyone,
Following the update this morning, the update manager asked me to restart the comp. Following that my internet stopped working entirely. Can someone help me out as to why that happened/what I can do to fix it? Please help me out.

A little more info would be helpful. Are you using wired or wireless? What is the output of:


The above command has to be run in an Applications-->Accessories-->Termianl. If you don't get an ip address showing in the output of the above command, in the same terminal type:

sudo dhclient eth0

substitute your network device for eth0

Same problem here. It takes awhile after logging in to establish the connection, when it use to be instant. Sometimes it doesn't work, and I can't even click on the network manager icon to make changes. It's working now, so I cant post any errors.

I noticed there was a network manager update in the last set of updates.
