View Full Version : [ubuntu] jaunty upgrade - ping yes, ftp yes, browse / web no
May 11th, 2009, 12:50 AM
I am having a similar problem as others and have tried several solutions suggested in other threads to resolve the issue, but have not been successful.
I can ping successfully and log into FTP sites, but cannot browse to web sites using Opera or Firefox - the browser cannot connect. I have a wired network that worked fine under intrepid.
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!

Thanks for your note and sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Tough to get to the computer during the week...
I cannot connect to Google with Opera or Firefox.

Does dns resolve stuff?
If you ping www.google.com, does it resolve to an ip address?

Yes, if I use the network tool I can ping www.google.com - it returns packets.
Thanks for the suggestion!

have you tried disabling ipv6?? http://www.prash-babu.com/2009/01/how-to-disable-ipv6-in-linux-ubuntu-to.html

Thanks for the suggestion, but that didn't work either.
I decided to try to boot from cd with jaunty to see if I was able to browse. That worked, so I just reinstalled from scratch.
Thanks for all the help, though!
