For some reason, my HP DV6 laptop is telling me that I have a wired connection but I can't seem to connect to anything. I tried connecting to my hosting server with Filezilla. Doesn't connect. I can't connect to any websites either and when I ping a site like cnn, it doesn't work.
At the moment my network is working on this laptop but sometimes I go to any website and it can't resolve the host. The other computers on my LAN are working fine.
Any ideas what I should do?
This is my ifconfig output:
randy@cruncher2000:~$ ifconfig eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 60:eb:69:0f:9d:24 inet addr:192.168.2.18 Bcast:192.168.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::62eb:69ff:fe0f:9d24/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:45724 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:46595 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:14880395 (14.1 MiB) TX bytes:9882813 (9.4 MiB) Interrupt:40 Base address:0x4000 lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1 RX packets:259 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:259 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:19676 (19.2 KiB) TX bytes:19676 (19.2 KiB)
Sounds like a DNS issue. If you can't ping cnn.com, can you ping 18.104.22.168? or google.com (22.214.171.124)
Pinging Google worked but. I think it does sound like a DNS issue. Should I change my DNS servers to something else? Should I useIPv4 or IPv6? What DNS settings should I try?
Any other CLI tools I should use to test?
Thanks for the help!!
Did it work by name or ip? You are setup for IPv4. Don't worry about IPv6 stuff for now that is still years away from widespread use.
OK I'm confused now. If you can ping google.com it is not a DNS issue. Well maybe an intermittent issue. What is your router? You may have something like parental controls or maybe a proxy enabled?
will show you your which DNS you are using but I am assuming you are using DHCP and if the other comps on you network are working then this should not be an issue.
I am using DHCP. I'm using the router that came with the TV service I have. So far the connection has been working OK.

I started having network problems again. My icon in tint2 says network disconnected. I have linuxlite 2.0 in another partition with the same result. Funny thing is when I boot into my windows 7 partition, everything is fine. I booted from my puppy Linux 5.2.8 CD and network connection is fine as well.

For some reason I cannot connect to the internet anymore. All computers on my LAN work fine as far as connecting to the internet goes. All have a wired connection to the router. My laptop that does not workis a HP DV6. I have Windows 7 (NTFS), Crunchbang (ext4) and Linux lite 2.0 (ext4) installed on seperate partitions.
Windows 7 has no problem connecting to the internet. If I boot from my Puppy Linux 5.2.8 DVD, I can connect to the internet after using the Simple Network tool that comes with Puppy.
I am very close to reformatting my entire computer and starting over again. I hope someone can help me figure out what is going on. A million thanks up front!!!
At the moment, I am sending this post while booted into Puppy Linux from DVD.
Here is what I have done so far:
1. Tried different ethernet cables. Didn't work.
2. Tried connecting directly to my router. Didn't work.
3. Turned the router on/off. Didn't work

Here are the commands I tried as well which may shed some light on the problem. Please let me know if there are any other commands I should try. randy@cruncher2000:~$ su - Password: root@cruncher2000:~# dmesg |grep eth [ 1.299043] r8169 0000:03:00.0: eth0: RTL8168d/8111d at 0xffffc9000066a000, 60:eb:69:0f:9d:24, XID 083000c0 IRQ 40 [ 1.299048] r8169 0000:03:00.0: eth0: jumbo features [frames: 9200 bytes, tx checksumming: ko] [ 24.630328] r8169 0000:03:00.0: eth0: link down [ 24.631168] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready root@cruncher2000:~# ifconfig -a eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 60:eb:69:0f:9d:24 UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) Interrupt:40 Base address:0xa000 lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1 RX packets:8 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:8 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:428 (428.0 B) TX bytes:428 (428.0 B) root@cruncher2000:~# iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. root@cruncher2000:~# route -n Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface root@cruncher2000:~# uname -a Linux cruncher2000 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.57-3+deb7u1 x86_64 GNU/Linux root@cruncher2000:~# lsmod Module Size Used by nls_utf8 12456 1 nls_cp437 16553 1 vfat 17316 1 fat 45642 1 vfat fuse 61972 3 parport_pc 22364 0 ppdev 12763 0 lp 17149 0 parport 31858 3 lp,ppdev,parport_pc bnep 17567 2 rfcomm 33700 0 bluetooth 119455 10 rfcomm,bnep cpufreq_powersave 12454 0 cpufreq_userspace 12576 0 cpufreq_stats 12866 0 cpufreq_conservative 13147 0 binfmt_misc 12957 1 loop 22641 0 uvcvideo 57744 0 videodev 70889 1 uvcvideo v4l2_compat_ioctl32 16655 1 videodev media 18148 2 videodev,uvcvideo snd_hda_codec_hdmi 30824 1 snd_hda_codec_idt 53792 1 i915 378445 7 snd_hda_intel 26259 2 snd_hda_codec 78031 3 snd_hda_codec_hdmi,snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec_idt snd_hwdep 13186 1 snd_hda_codec brcmsmac 473905 0 drm_kms_helper 31370 1 i915 drm 183952 3 drm_kms_helper,i915 snd_pcm 68083 3 snd_hda_codec_hdmi,snd_hda_codec,snd_hda_intel joydev 17266 0 snd_page_alloc 13003 2 snd_pcm,snd_hda_intel snd_seq 45126 0 coretemp 12898 0 cordic 12352 1 brcmsmac crc8 12426 1 brcmsmac brcmutil 12905 1 brcmsmac i2c_algo_bit 12841 1 i915 mac80211 192806 1 brcmsmac cfg80211 137243 2 mac80211,brcmsmac i2c_i801 16870 0 i2c_core 23876 6 i2c_i801,i2c_algo_bit,drm,drm_kms_helper,i915,videodev iTCO_wdt 17081 0 hp_wmi 13329 0 video 17683 1 i915 hp_accel 25200 0 sparse_keymap 12760 1 hp_wmi acpi_cpufreq 12935 1 lis3lv02d 17881 1 hp_accel snd_seq_device 13176 1 snd_seq snd_timer 22917 2 snd_seq,snd_pcm crc32c_intel 12747 0 snd 52889 13 snd_timer,snd_seq_device,snd_seq,snd_pcm,snd_hda_codec_hdmi,snd_hwdep,snd_hda_codec,snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec_idt ac 12624 0 battery 13146 0 psmouse 69265 0 mperf 12453 1 acpi_cpufreq evdev 17562 10 power_supply 13475 2 battery,ac intel_ips 17650 0 wmi 13243 1 hp_wmi pcspkr 12579 0 rfkill 19012 4 hp_wmi,cfg80211,bluetooth serio_raw 12931 0 button 12937 1 i915 processor 28149 1 acpi_cpufreq iTCO_vendor_support 12704 1 iTCO_wdt input_polldev 12906 1 lis3lv02d soundcore 13065 1 snd ext4 350763 1 crc16 12343 2 ext4,bluetooth jbd2 62115 1 ext4 mbcache 13114 1 ext4 usb_storage 43870 1 microcode 30126 0 usbhid 36418 0 hid 81372 1 usbhid sg 25874 0 sd_mod 36136 4 sr_mod 21899 0 cdrom 35401 1 sr_mod crc_t10dif 12348 1 sd_mod ahci 24997 1 libahci 22941 1 ahci ehci_hcd 40249 0 libata 140630 2 libahci,ahci r8169 47008 0 thermal 17383 0 mii 12675 1 r8169 thermal_sys 18040 3 thermal,processor,video usbcore 128741 5 ehci_hcd,usbhid,usb_storage,uvcvideo scsi_mod 162269 5 libata,sr_mod,sd_mod,sg,usb_storage usb_common 12354 1 usbcore root@cruncher2000:~#
Can't help you out directly, but you might want to pm one of the mods and get this thread moved to the help section where it might get more traffic. I can see where the solution is going to be some simple editing that another user has had to do.
