    Ubuntu Internet Problems

    Hi, I just got linux, so hi.

    Anyway, I installed it, and it's not letting me connect to the Internet.

    I don't really know what specs and that you need to know, so just reply and say what you need to know.

    Thanks, Mew.

    Hello Mew,
    normally, you only have to set your ethernet configurations and dhcp.

    I believe this link will solve your problem:
    Good luck,

    Umm, thanks, but I don't really understand it, could you please explain what I need to do in a bit, well, more newb friendly way?

    Open a terminal first and then, go to the folder /etc/network:
    $cd /etc/network
    Then, edit the file interfaces. I do not know the editor (vi, nano, gedit) you have. So, try nano (for example):
    $nano interfaces
    Your file will probably look something like this:
    auto lo
     iface lo inet loopback
    iface eth0 inet static
    To save you have to press first "Crtl+x" and the "y" to save.

    Doing the same, edit /etc/resolv.conf. It will look something like:
    After that, type the following command line:
    $/etc/init.d/networking restart
    Then, reboot and it should work.
    $sudo reboot

    Thanks for trying to help, but I am stuck at step one, it says "bash: /ect/network: No such file or directory".
    Is there any other way?

    "bash: /ect/network: No such file or directory"

    You wrote it wrong, you should have written:
    $cd /etc/network

    Yeah, it's still saying that, the whole terminal says:

    Brad@Brad-desktop:~$ $cd /ect/network
    Bash: /ect/network: No such file or directory

    You did not write the "$", did you?

  10. #9
    Yeah, I did.

    Try the following command:
    sudo find / -name interfaces
    If you have the file, the address will be shown for you on the terminal.
    What is the Linux that you have, by the way?
