Mint 14 Cinamon won't get internet.

Postby Pallevante » Fri Mar 29, 2013 5:54 am

Hello!

I've installed Linux Mint beside Windows 8 and it won't get internet access. I'm no genius with linux but I've checked the configurations and they should be correct.

The internet comes from a bridged connection on my laptop to this computer if that has anything to do with it. It works with Windows 8.

IfConfig: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr f4:6d:04:af:85:51
inet addr:192.168.1.95 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::f66d:4ff:feaf:8551/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:57 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:158 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:7418 (7.4 KB) TX bytes:20490 (20.4 KB)

/etc/network/interfaces:

auto lo iface lo inet loopback

Thanks in advance.

The IP settings look fine. What error messages do you get? Have you tried pinging some hosts?
Try
ping <IP of your windows machine>
ping <IP of your default gateway/router>
ping 4.2.2.2

It dosen't give me an error message, I pinged google and it said it was unreachable.

If I try to connect via Firefox it just spins and never connects.

Probably your default gateway is not set correctly. Try to disable and enable your network again and post the output of
sudo route
sudo traceroute 173.194.39.70 # google.com

Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
default 192.168.1.254 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
link-local * 255.255.0.0 U 1000 0 0 eth0
192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 1 0 0 eth0

this was the only thing I could get. It said it didn't have the traceroute package.

Not a solution, but perhaps related: I have Mint 13, Mint 14 and Arch, triple boot, and (stock, updated) Mint 14 has consistent, constant problems with any google sites - can't login to email (hangs, no error msgs), picture search rarely works, etc - but the other distros work fine, and most other websites work OK in 14. (I posted about it here, no answers though).

If your IP is 192.168.1.95, your default gateway is set to 192.168.1.254 and you can ping the default gateway successfully then most likely the default gateway just refuses to forward packets. You may want to look up on "internet connection sharing" for your windows box to set this up correctly. If a ping to an IP like 4.2.2.2 or 173.194.39.70 is successful then the DNS settings on your Linux box are not set correctly (you can use 4.2.2.2 as your primary DNS server).
