Hey folks.

I've been digging around the forum for a couple hours, and I'm afraid I've run out of ideas for connecting to the internet via my new NanoSystem2.

When I boot the system it displays "wireless networks available," but I'm trying to access my wired network. I found posts instructing me to disable ipv6 (which I've done), edit /etc/network/interfaces (which I've done), and run the dhclient utility (which I've done). I am able to connect to NanoSystem2 with no problems from my Windows 7 partition. I launched the command prompt and got the ipconfig information to use in the manual entry for ipv4. Still, I could not connect via LAN. I'm sure I'm missing something simple and silly, but I've been working on this for a couple hours and still have had no luck.

By the way, if it's helpful:


lspci | grep Eth

Gives me:


Ethernet: Atheros Communication inc. AR8152 v1.1 Fast Ethernet rev(c1)

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba Satellite.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I found this post (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=86389&highlight=troubleshooting) and tried some of the tests that it recommended. I couldn't run ethtool because it was not installed. I just downloaded the source for the tool and I'll see if I can download it next time I launch my Ubuntu partition. Anyway, here are the tests I ran and their results:

$ dmesg | grep lan

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm forced to run Windows 7 for internet access right now, and it's terrible. It seems to have a stutter, and it's already done one auto shutdown after I thought I rejected it :(

I just tried calling the ISP's technical support. The representative had never heard of Ubuntu and was "unfamiliar" with linux.

I wound up purchasing a wireless router that is now sitting between my computer and the NanoStation. I wanted it anyway so I can get wireless access, but it seems strange that I'm unable to connect directly.
