Ubuntu internet connection.

Postby zooofer » Sun Mar 18, 2012 5:58 pm

Greetings all. I have been running Ubuntu on a couple different machines. One Gateway laptop, its about five years old, dual core AMD turion with a gig of ram. The other machine, I don't know much about, its a small pc I found at work. Really low level performance. The problem that I am having is when I first installed the os, it accepted its address from the DHCP server and my internet connection was fine. Then out of the blue, my internet connection just stops working. So I checked the settings and everything seemed to be right. I assigned a static I.P. and still no luck. This happened to both machines and that really bothers me. The O.S. was not updated. I think it was version 10.

Thanks everybody.

OK, there's no brand name on the machines? No idea what kind of network card is in there?

Thank you so much for your responce. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but my whole problem was I had a bad cable. I am sorry for wasting your time.
