I have being googling for several days trying to fix my network connection but that hasn't been possible, I hope that you can help me.
I have a fresh LinuxMint installation in my machine. I am trying to connect to the MAN network in Darmstadt-Germany. I have tried to connect with windows and everything works.
Some interesting facts are:
- If i try a manual configuration i am able to ping to the default gateway and the dns servers, but i am not able to resolv dns, i also cant browse using the ips of google for example. I cant ping "outside", i tried with 22.214.171.124 and i got a timeout.
- If i try a dhcp configuration, nothing works. I cant ping the default gateway, neither the dns servers.
I have also tried using the dhclient coomand stating the server ip like this(as superuser already): dhclient -4 -v -s 126.96.36.199, and afther the timeout i am not able to get a lease.
