    Re: Internet connection lost but email still works

    I did try and reboot the router with no success... I decided to uninstall Network Manager from the Synaptic Package Manager, well that was a dumb thing to do, now everything is DOWN. If I boot from the 8.10 CD, all is well, I can connect to www fine... so I am gonna backup files and upgrade to 10.04 - I know that doesn't get to solve the problem here, but at least I will be on a supported version, I'm pretty sure the problem will go away.
    Thanks for the responses...

    Lucid is an LTS, so it should last you a few years. It has worked almost flawlessly for me.

    Rofl. Well, none of us answering thought of that, so I guess we all learned something.

    Have fun in 10.04.

    That sucks. Oh well. I guess we'll make a note of that one for future reference.

    You would think though that since you still have email they would let you know you'd reached your cap.
