    Internet not connecting...


    I'm using Ubuntu, so I figure I'll get more responses from people who also use it. My internet wont connect. I installed the drivers using ndiswrapper-1.19. When I run ndiswrapper -l, it tells me the drives is there, and the hardwares present. Something along the lines of that. Also, when I go to networking (I believe), it says that my device or whatever (wlan0) is active. I edit the properties and enter in the WEP key and stuff. I just started using Linux about a month ago because I want to loose Windows, but I can't until my internet is up. What else do I need to do to get it up, or to assist in getting it up.

    Also, I'm using the Compaq 11mbps HNW-200 USB adapter.

    I installed network-manager to look after my connections. It is a lot easier than editing your config files and makes hotpluggin or swapping networks effortless.
    Code:
    sudp apt-get install network-manager
    Once it is installed, you should restart your system then you will have a network applet in your system tray. This will allow you to connect, detect and supply encryption details as required. It is very clean and fast.

    This is what it came out with...

    The command bigtomrodney gave you should work. But normally you would want the network-manager graphical interface as well (for Gnome) :
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome
    In Ubuntu 6.06, that should work. If not, make sure your repositories are correctly configured (the file is /etc/apt/sources.list) :

    Ok, I went to the first link and did the thing where you go to Software Properties, and check those two boxes and hit add. I ran the command again, and this is what I got....

    I also tried

    instead of
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome
    and it did the same thing.

    Is your network functionning properly? Are you connect by ethernet?

    Try to reload the database with Synaptic. Or run :
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    And then try to install "network-manager-gnome" again.

    My network works fine when I'm running Windows. When I reload the database with Synpatic I get this...

    When I run the "sudo apt-get update" command, I get this...

    I just went and looked for network manager, and I found a package "NetworkManager-0.6.4.tar.gz" but I'm not too sure how to install it, if I can at all.

    Sorry for the double post, but this is not about installing network manager, but still has to do with my topic...

    When I run
    Code:
    ping -c 10 192.168.1.101
    ...I get this...

    Code:
    PING 192.168.1.101 (192.168.1.101) 56(84) bytes of data.

    But if I run something like
    Code:
    ping -c 10 66.102.9.147
    , it gives me this...(I do believe thats Google)

    Code:
    PING 66.102.9.147 (66.102.9.147) 56(84) bytes of data.

    --- 66.102.9.147 ping statistics ---

    , pipe 3
    I checked the Ip, and WEP key and all that stuff. It only works on the Static IP, not the DHCP. What does that mean? What do I need to do?
