Network / Re: Lost internet connectio
« Last post by stevef on Today at 01:51:09 AM »
A few questions arise from that.

Do you set your network parameters manually (for example through the GUI or by editing system files) or are you on DHCP ?
If you set manually, how have you done this ?
If you have a DHCP server, is it your router or another system on your local network?

What is the IP address of the router you would expect your machine to be using to get to the Internet?

Looks like you may have a problem getting off your local network. The following commands show the interface configuration, the routing table, local devices and test connection to the router.
Please can you run them and post the results ?

Code: [Select]
ifconfig -a
Code: [Select]
route
Code: [Select]
arp -a
Code: [Select]
ping _gatewayAllow this one to run for 5 seconds and terminate command with 'ctrl c' as before'

Responses:
"cat/etc/llver"
'Linux Lite 5.6'

"ping 8.8.8.8"
'Destination host unreachable'

"Ping google.com"
'Temporary failure in name resolution'

That is it so far, next.

Jim,
Can you run some commands from a terminal window ?
Press the three keys 'Ctrl' 'Alt' and 'T' simultaneously to open a terminal window.

To check your Linux Lite version enter this command followed by enter

Code: [Select]
cat /etc/llver
Versions 4.x, 5.x and 6.x are currently supported, although version 4.x is end of support in April 2023.
Version 3.x and earlier are out of support and should not be used to connect to the Internet.

To test basic internet connection and DNS function, run some commands in the terminal window.
Copy the commands carefully.

Code: [Select]
ping 8.8.8.8followed by enter

Allow this to run for about 5 seconds, then terminate command by pressing 'Ctrl' and 'C' together

You should see something like

Quote
PING 8.8.8.8 (8.8.8.8 ) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=1 ttl=118 time=18.2 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=2 ttl=118 time=18.2 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=3 ttl=118 time=18.0 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=4 ttl=118 time=18.4 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=5 ttl=118 time=18.5 ms
64 bytes from 8.8.8.8: icmp_seq=6 ttl=118 time=18.0 ms
^C
--- 8.8.8.8 ping statistics ---
6 packets transmitted, 6 received, 0% packet loss, time 5006ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 17.963/18.210/18.499/0.208 ms

If the number of packets transmitted = packets received, then you have a basic connection and can  test DNS with this.

Code: [Select]
ping google.comfollowed by enter.

If you get results similar to the text below, DNS is working, so allow it to run for about 5 seconds, then use Ctrl and C as before.

Quote

^C
--- google.com ping statistics ---
6 packets transmitted, 6 received, 0% packet loss, time 5007ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 16.496/16.869/17.299/0.307 ms

But if you get something like

Code: [Select]
ping: google.com: Temporary failure in name resolutionIt indicates DNS is not working.

If you report the results of the above the next steps can be determined.

Network / Lost internet connectio
« Last post by jimc on March 18, 2023, 08:48:15 PM »
I am pushing 80 so I am writing this offline because I am concerned it makes sense and I want it to reread it before posting.
First of all. I have an older laptop that I use, it has 2 partition, one is Windows 7 and it seems to be OK. The other is Linux Lite. It is an older version but I can't find a version number, I would say a couple years old.
A couple of years ago I began to have cognitive difficulties and modified Linux Lite desktop so there would as few icons in other words I change the program icons by removing the icon and making the title something meaningful to me.
At some point I realized that I had lost my connection to the internet. In working on that I realized that I have a connection to the local router and I can see all of the other computers in my comcast community.
However, I cannot go to the browser and put in a URL and get a connection. I do have a simple website on my personal network.  That I connect with.
It sound to me as if I have problem connecting with a DNS server. I have tried several URL's for DNS servers.
None of which worked.
If you want to help me keep in mind that I have to read and reply on one partition and test on another.
Thanks to anyone who can provide any help I would prefer step by step instructions.
Jim

@stevef,
That worked, thanks for the help and it would be great if there were a cheat sheet with terminal codes when we get into these situations.

Have a great day!!!
