View Full Version : [ubuntu] network not working

August 10th, 2009, 05:21 PM
I can no longer access the internet via network connection. It worked fine this morning but when I logged onto my computer (dell mini 9 ) this afternoon the network connection icon was gone from my panel and when i went into the systems-admin-newtwork settings I could not access wireless, wired, or point to point connection. I unlocked it and still nothing. Anyone know why this could've happened. Thank you .

Check ifconfig -a to see if an interface has an IP address. Lacking that, check lshw -C network to see if interfaces are recognized.

Still could not connect so I click on the network manager and nothing comes up. Seems not to be installed anymore. I went into apps and it seems to be installed but nothing happens...
