View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wired network active, but cant connect online

February 20th, 2010, 07:23 PM

Yesterday I moved my modem (wireless) to my living room so the PS3 detected a better signal. In doing so, I had to run a new ethernet cable from my living room where the modem is into my office where the computer is. I use ubuntu 9.10

For some reason I cannot connect to the internet now. When I scroll over the connection, it says wire connection 1 is active. I have my settings manually set. I did notice the MAC address field is blank...

I didn't have an issue before, but with changing cables and whatnot, something got messed up somehow.

Any ideas?

Any help is appreciated.

Verify the IP Address with ifconfig -a, then see if you can ping the modem (or access the configuration page).
