please help....no internet flameboy1974 Feb 27th, 08, 01:16 AM #1

Ok i am very new to linux. I just installed Ubuntu 7.10
I really like it but am having trouble getting online. We use a static IP. I found the network option and set up the ip address, gateway, DNS severs, ect. I see it say packets sent and recieved but firefox still says server not found. I can ping the router so I'm not sure what i should do now.
Here is my Ifconfig

ferby@ferby-laptop:~$ ifconfig

lol, what ipconfig shown when we don't even how which laptop you are actually use on?

what do you mean by no internet? in what way does the problem occurred?

Try reconfigure the network wizard to select the correct connectivity such as Cable Broadband or such, it happen for me in Mandriva but could resolve in less than a minute.

the laptop is a HP DV9500T. I am trying to access the internet through my wired network card. As stated i have configured a staic IP adress, DNS servers and gateway. i can see all computers on the windows network, i can also ping the router, but when i open firefox it says "server not found" for any address i put in.
Also I cannot find the network wizard you are speaking of.

/etc/resolv.conf

You're not getting proper DNS. Use:

nameserver 208.67.222.222
nameserver 208.67.220.220
