Internet will not connect, and says no devices found?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 14, 2009
For the last few days I've been trying to get ubuntu 8.10 to work with my internet.
I have a Motorola SB5120 Modem with Comcast. I went threw all the sites and did everything to try to make it work but nothing.
Everytime I type in terminal : ifconfig all, it says "error fetching interface information : device not found" but when I had windows it was there and worked great.
I have all the right info and it says connected to eth0 but a site will never come up to anything but problem loading page, and auto search(auto eth0 or ifupdown(eth0)) always trys then says network disconnected.
Everything else works good about the Ubuntu system except that.
Is there something i'm doing wrong? Does anyone think they can solve this problem? If so, I would gladly appreciate it
debian sid connects to network but i have no internet!
- date: September 19, 2009
hi! i am running debian sid on an hp hdx 16 (64 bit) with kde 4.3. i always install new updates and my last update was 2 days ago! now when i booted i could connect to the internet but when i try to visit a web address or even run apt-get update, i get nothing! i tried both wicd and kdenetworkmanager but they don't work! i also tried wifi and ethernet and still nothing! also it can not be the network because i can connect using an acer aspire one with debian sid and gnome. i can also ssh to the hp through my acer but still apt-get update does not load! before the shuting down my hp the last time i had internet working i modified /etc/hosts. could this be the problem?
my /etc/hosts looks like:
:~$ cat /etc/hosts
127.0.1.1 debian.local debian
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
Just installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and have no internet
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 24, 2014
I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 onto an old Dell Inspiron 1521. I am unable to access the internet either by wireless or plugging the ethernet cable from the modem to the laptop. When I installed Ubuntu, I had the laptop connected to my router with an ethernet cable and it said I had internet on the screen that says how much space you need and that you should be plugged into a power source. I'm thinking I need to install drivers but I'm not sure and don't know how to do that with Linux. First time using it.

i have no internet on my debian machine
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 24, 2006
i can ping the router and the modem but i get no web pages, under ifconfig eth0 and lo are both up so it isn't hardware.
a friend of mine got it going at his place by changing the default gateway and dns, i tried that on my network, no dice, i tried editing /etc/network/interfaces which didn't work and i've tried live cds that have worked in the past.
i'm out of ideas and getting close to throwing it out of a window, please help
[SOLVED] OpenVPN clients have no internet access

I have installed a OpenVPN server in my Fedora Box. But when I connect to the VPN network from my Phone running Android L (Cyanogen Mod 12), I can access all local network resources but I cant connect to the internet.
Cant seem to figure what the problem is? Any suggestion is appreciated.
Here is the Open VPN config file (tun0 is the VPN interface)
no valid session found after installing edubuntudesktop
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 4, 2011
I've had two workstations for over two years now running ubuntu and going through the progression of upgrades. These workstations are for my kids to use so I decided I wanted to install edubuntu-desktop. Before taking the leap, I cloned a VBox natty VM from my PC and installed edubuntu-desktop and all related packages. Everything went fine so I felt confident enough to go ahead and install the packages on my kids' workstations.
On the very first attempt everything installed without error, but on reboot, I was able to get the new splash screen and login screen, but on my attempt to login, I get a message box that says 'no valid session found'. I click the OK button and the message box goes away, but the PC doesn't do anything. I'm left with nothing but the wallpaper and no allowable interaction. I'm able to go to tty1 and when I checked the .xsession-errors file I see the following...
