SOLVED puppy linux internet connection problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 4, 2009
hi everybody. i apologise cos i realise this isn't perhaps the most appropriate place to go with this one. but i am stumped!
i have just salvaged an old dell optiplex by installing puppy linux 4.20 retro, but i cant get access to the net. i'm unclear as to what further info you might need so please feel free to ask for it if you want anything else.
i have tried with both ethernet and wireless to connect using the BT Home Hub/Router but i cant get connected.
using ethernet i hit connect and go through the 'connect' process and it tells me it has configured for access but i cant actually connect.
using wireless via a usb interface i can locate some random i.p address but no others. again, it won't connect.
my router usually requires a wep key when i am using ubuntu but i cant find any way to enter this or any other information either.
i have tried googling and searching on more puppy based sites but haven't (so far) found anything, though i shall of course keep looking. so i
[SOLVED] Lost Network (Internet) Connection Overnight on Slackware 14
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 10, 2013
Hey. I'm running Slackware 14 on a desktop machine. I installed it about a month ago. I've had no problems connecting to the network/internet, until today.
I'm a relative newbie and know little about networking. My box is connected, via cable, to a switch, which is connected to a wifi router, which is connected to a cable modem.
I run three machines off of the switch. The 2 other machines are connected and running as they should be. I booted my Slackware machine today and found I couldn't connect to the internet.
As I mentioned, this has never been a problem.
I thought it had to do something with changing of the clocks, so I changed the machine time by one hour and rebooted. Still no connection.
Here's the message about my network interface during the boot process:
[SOLVED] Frostwire: no internet connection
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 4, 2008
I have Frostwire downloaded & have a good internet connection on the computer, but Frostwire can not find the internet... (No Signal bars) However, My internet connection on the computer showing 90%, & no issues with any other program. I've tried re-installing Frostwire, re-booting & checked it on System/Admin/SysPkgMgr & see that it is installed. That is of course fine. It loads OK... It just does not see the internet???
[SOLVED]How to configure Wifi in KDE distro without Internet connection?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2013
I've just installed Mageia 2 on my hp dv6000 series laptop in a dual booting system with Windows 7. This is my first experience with a KDE distro, so far I've used Ubuntu ( & Windows, of course).
Mageia though beautiful to look at, can't connect to my home wifi so I cannot update softwares or install the missing packages it needs to connect to the wifi!
I'm in the uneasy situation of experimenting with possible solutions in Mageia, then restart the pc, this time boot into Windows7, post updates on help forums, find out new tips & tricks to solve the wifi connection problem, then again switch back to Mageia in a totally time-consuming, never-ending cycle of actions!
So far, I've tried giving this command from Konsole:

[SOLVED] Internet connection drops out with Ubuntu 12.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 30, 2012
I'd been holding on to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS until last week. With that version my wireless connections were quite solid. Since installing 12.04 LTS (32 bit) I've been experiencing intermittent drop-outs, usually when downloading large updates. I've been going through the solutions recommended in the Ubuntu forums, but so far these haven't worked. Most solutions involved downloading drivers, but this shouldn't be necessary when a previous Ubuntu version didn't require specific drivers. The error messages given are the standard 'Firefox cannot connect to ...' and 'cannot connect to SMTP server ...' That is always the first time I know that the connection has been lost. There is no warning that the connection is dropping out. A temporary workaround has been to switch over to a mobile broadband modem, but that connection usually fails as well without warning. The fact that two wireless connections fail makes me think that this is a fault with the recent Network Manager module. This 6yo lapto
[SOLVED] Need to install networkmanager without internet connection
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 10, 2008
I put the installation cd in, added it as a repository with: "sudo apt-cdrom add" and tried "sudo apt-get install network-manager" and it said it has no installation candidates. apt-cache search didn't turn up anything either.
The same thing happened with ndiswrapper, which is a program I've already installed from the CD, so I guess I messed up the repos cache somehow. I tried apt-get update, but it didn't change anything.
Any help appreciated.
[SOLVED] Internet connection on Oracle Enterprise Linux

[SOLVED] I have installed LinuxMint15 but no internet connection found
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 19, 2013
I have just installed LinuxMint 15 but cannot find an internet connection. I am informed "failed to receive share list from server - No such file or directory" but have no idea what it means or even whether it is relevant.
I have Windows Vista running in the first partition and have internet connection through a Technicolor TG582n router with a wireless connection to a TP-LINK Wireles N Adaptor. The computer is a Dell Inspiron 530s. Naively I rather thought that the LinuxMint would pick up the connection.
I am afraid I am quite baffled by all technicalities so please do not overestimate my ability to understand all but the very simplest of explanations and instructions. An example of this is when I tried to join the LinuxMint Forum in the belief that it might be a more immediately related source of help. I couldn't even managed to register! I tried about twenty times but, and in spite of my most meticulous filling in of name, password and email details etc. I kept get
