internet connection disappeared
« on: May 11, 2009, 07:16:57 am »

I finally succeeded installing VL Light 6.0....YES!
The first session (IceWM) everything was OK.
The second time, I wanted to try out JMW, but there was no internet.
When I restarted, in IceWM, internet was gone again, and the small blue window in the right lower corner, that indicated the connection, was gone also.
I don't know how to get it back.

Hi Bruno, as you connected once, we will assume that your card has a working module (driver) loaded already. Please post the output of the following commands:

Code: [Select]
/sbin/ifconfig
/sbin/ifconfig -a
ping 74.125.67.100

Cheers!

/sbin/ifconfig:

inet addr: 127.0.0.1 mask: 255.0.0.0
up loopback running mtu: 16436 metric:1
next: everything 0

/sbin/ifconfig -a:
eth: link encap: ethernet hwaddr: 00:50;8b;03:c0c4
broadcast multicast mtu:1500 metric: 1
next: everything 0, except txqueuelen: 1000

lo: the same like above

ping 74.125.67.100:

I dunno about wicd, long time I dont use it... but your NIC has no ip assigned. Try as root from a terminal:

Code: [Select]
dhcpcd eth0
Post the error message if any.

What is yor network setup, do you connect through a modem or router? If it is a router, can you ping the router ip?
Did ifconfig show an ip assigned to eth0 after the dhcpcd command?

Wow, this is getting complicated..
I am connected with a router (dsl).
How do I ping my router?
The result of /sbin/ifconfig was posted above.

Looks like there is no IP address, so pinging won't do much good. I'm not sure your NIC is up. Try:
Code: [Select]
ifconfig eth0 up
dhcpcd eth0

Not necessarily. Mine is 192.168.2.1 and some are 192.168.1.1. The router's documentation should give the default IP address.

bruno,
how to you get into your router to do things like set passwords?

I just tried dhcpcd eth0 as root, but nothing happened: no output, and no connection...

If you did the command as su or sudo
Code:
/sbin/dhcpcd eth0

should give an output.
