Internet Problems on Felica LiveCD

Postby Wics » Thu Jan 22, 2009 3:51 am

hey, i have been using Elyssa for about a month now, and i am planning to do a fresh install for Felicia. However I am having internet & update connection issues with Felicia LiveCD? Felicia Livecd shows that i am directly connect to the ehternet but I cannot connect to either Mint Update nor can I get to internet site. Can anyone tell me whether this is just the livecd or a problem on my end, and if so how to fix it.
Thank you :D

I also have the same problem too actually.

I did enter the right ip address, subnet and gateway. It says i am "Connected" but Firefox failed to load the Linux Mint homepage.

I find this weird since Elyssa doesn't have this problem.

Am i doing something wrong?

Are you trying to connect wired or wireless? Any other info on your system would help.

Try running

Code: Select all

lshw


and posting that. I'm doubting a driver issue (though it is possible), because Linux has great support for ethernet cards.

Hi

Out of interest I tried lswh on my Felicia Live CD, my Felicia install and my Elyssa install. I have no problem connecting to the internet or accessing network files with either of the installs.

Felicia live CD and install gave the same result for the live cd and install.

Elyssa gives the following:

do you have a router or a modem?
if modem: try a pppoeconf with root-user

if router: anyone will have a clue for you, i haven't set up a router yet

The DISABLED string in your felicia install could very well be the problem. To fix it, type the following.

Code: Select all

sudo ifconfig pan0 up


Code: Select all

lshw


Now, go find the same string, and see if the disabled string is gone, that might fix your problem.

Following terminal entry
lshw gives

*-network

logical name: pan0
serial: 06:8e:de:1e:3e:9e
capabilities: ethernet physical
configuration: broadcast=yes driver=bridge driverversion=2.3 firmware=N/A link=yes multicast=yes
.
Under Network Nautilus shows the Icon for Windows Network but clicking on it gives the error Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from Server

I have a Modem/Router Netgear DG834G, and have WICD running not Network Manager

Open up a terminal and type the following:

Code: Select all

gksu gedit /etc/rc.local


Once there, put that command at the bottom, but in front of the string

"Exit 0" Like this:

Code: Select all

Whatever commands you want automatically executed when Linux starts
Exit 0

Will that script work? Since sudo pppoeconf needs to enter username and password of the adsl?

Oh well, i will try it later :D
