    Angry Can't See the Internet!


    I'm running Lubuntu 12.04 on a HP Proliant Microserver, but I don't think this is specifically a Linux issue.

    My server can't see the internet. At all!

    I CAN
    * Ping/access local network resources from the server
    * Connect to the router (Virgin Superhub) web admin interface
    * Access the server locally (the server has a reserved DHCP lease at IP 192.x.x.50)
    * SSH over the internet INTO the server

    I CAN'T
    * Ping out to the internet (by name OR IP)
    * access websites
    * perform upgrades

    I'm writing from a laptop, connected wirelessly to the same network, so there isn't a network-wide internet connectivity issue. This laptop is also able to Remote Desktop or SSH into the box.

    Anyone got any thoughts? This was fine very recently when I reinstalled Lubuntu. The only thing I can think of was that I did a hardware reset of my router recently, but I can't think why this would have changed anything that should cause this!

    Never mind - turns out I had screwed up the networking in the router config. I'd added a MAC filter which, since the default is to allow everything, blocked traffic from my server's IP.

    *hangs head*
