View Full Version : [kubuntu] [SOLVED] no internet connection when not connected at startup

Hi everyone!

When I start up my computer without having the modem connected, I won't have any internet connection.

However, when there is a connection while I start up the machine I will have internet.

So each time I forget about connecting the computer to the modem before I startup my computer, I have to connect the computer to the modem and restart again.

It does not help to try dhclient when my computer has no internet connection.

I use kubuntu 8.04.

Try the terminal command

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
after plugging the modem in.

Thanks! That solved the problem. I tried it out right away and

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

does the trick.
