    Question Dual Boot OS Option , XP connects to Internet Mint 11 Wont


    Hello
    Would appreciate any help here, I have a dual boot XP and Mint 11 As Stated above XP will connect but Mint wont
    Says it cant find the server....
    Very frustrating as i have been using mint now for 3 years and have had to revert to XP which im not fussed about....
    Any suggestions on the software glitch would be nice....I know this sounds far fetched but it wouldnt be a virus would it???

    thanks in advance

    How are you connecting to the internet ... wired or wireless
    What hardware are you using
    lspci and lsusb would probably help
    Have you ever connected to the net using Mint 11 before, is this a fresh install etc

    A virus is unlikely to be the cause of you being unable to connect to the net

    Both wired and wireless , its an atheros wireless card , it a new installation, have never tried to connect b4, last mint was 9 and same problem, worked 10 hrs b4 no change to any settings and then stopped working, i have noted on windows that it tells me there is a connection with the same name but it still connects, dont know if this is a conflict??
    Also i am not computer brilliant, but find myself around a GUI system ok, if i need to go to terminal for commands, could you please type inside <> what i must type...
    thanks again in advance

    Your card is working. What exactly is happening when you try to connect to your network? Error message? Password issue?

    It says "Cant find server"
    I have taken it off auto connect and tried to type in
    IP Address Gateway Subnet Mask DHCP Server and DNS Servers but it wont let me save them, ...ie it ghosts out save
    I think that might be the problem , as i copied my XP connection settings and if can find the server im thinking something is a little skewed with MINT's connection settings...
    Is there anyway i can go to the terminal and put these settings in???
    and if so could you give me an idea of how to seperate the headings(if you think this might be the problem)?

    Do you see your network in the results of
    Code:
    iwlist wlan0 scan

    If it can't find servers, it could be DNS, can you run the following commands and post the output here.

    Code:
    ping -c 5 www.google.com 
    ping -c 5 74.125.230.148
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?
