So Nearly There...A Linux solution for me and an old machine.

Installed Ubuntu on old notebook.

Network Connection works. But not the Internet Connection.

Can anyone please help me to get the internet connected?

Thanks.

Check the DNS setting in your network configuration

I think it should point to your router

Hope this helps

Other machine on the same router connects to internet.

And the notebook can access router admin.

Could there be something in the router setup to disallow internet access from that computer?

ifconfig -a
netstat -na
cat /etc/resolv.conf

?

Ensure that DHCP is enabled in your network setup.

philipsone, you say you have another computer that can connect to the internet via the same router. What domain name server does it use? If it is a linux box, check /etc/resolv.conf. If it is a Windows box, I think you run the command ifconfig, but I'm pretty shady here.

Obviously, from your successful `wget 72.14.207.99` you can connect to the internet using numeric ip addresses, the problem is in resolving names -- probably something to do with /etc/resolv.conf.

Hm. That's interesting. The `dig` command asks your router what the ip address of yahoo.com is. It succeeded!

Okay, now what do you get when you type


dig yahoo.com

This is the same thing, but dig should now consult /etc/resolv.conf and querie the nameserver listed there. You should get the same thing...

Hm. I think I was wrong when I said this was a DNS problem. The output of the two ping commands you've posted both show the numeric ip address of the ping targets: google.com and yahoo.com. I should have caught that. The problem lies elsewhere.

I'm grasping at straws here, as this problem seems to be beyond my level of knowledge. But, if you are willing to try one more thing, do this:


sudo iptables -L


This will give you the current list of firewall rules on your machine. The default setting looks like this:


Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

If your output looks the same, it means your firewall is letting everything pass through, and you can rule out the machine's firewall as the problem.

The only other thing I can think of is that your router has firewall rules which are blocking internet access to your linux box. If you've checked those settings and they look fine, then I'm at a total loss. Sorry.

Hi Again

There is a happy ending (restart).

Summary:
I installed ubuntu 6.06 (from a downloaded Live CD) onto a 7 years old Toshiba Satellite (S2800-500) laptop with 256kb ram.
(Sorry I hastily said before it was 13 years old).
The reason I chose 6.06 was because of my limited RAM. The more recent Live CD versions appeared to require more than 256kb RAM.

6.06 installed OK except I could not get the internet up in spite of all your help. We tried.

I tried openSUSE in various forms and got the internet up with a few tweaks (disable IPv6) but got other problems (including sound).

I downloaded Ubuntu 8.04, yes Hardy Heron. I chose the alternate CD option which said it needed a minimum 256kb ram.
The Live CD needed 384kb RAM.

Result:
IT ALL WORKED straight out of the box. :lolflag:
It's a bit slow (Pentium III) but it all works.

It runs like a dream.

Thanks again for your help.
