I have a weird problem I can't solve. I have several computers, two with Xubuntu 9.10. One of them, acting as a media server, has stopped to work when it comes to external networking. I can do for example:
Which gives me an IP adress back, like:
name@Media:/etc$ ping google.com PING google.com (188.8.131.52) 56(84) bytes of data.
That tells me it reaches the DNS? But I get no response at all. If I ping a local computer all works fine. I can also reach the computer via SSH without any problems. I have always used NetworkManager, but now I uninstalled it and made the settings manually like this:
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.52 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.1.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 gateway 192.168.1.1
Still no luck. I have no specific settings for this one in my router, and all the other computers, including my Windows laptop works fine. This is very annoying since I can't even do an update or anything..
The output from
ifconfig looks like this:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:24:1d:9f:10:89 inet addr:192.168.1.52 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::224:1dff:fe9f:1089/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:15410 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:2693 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:1167398 (1.1 MB) TX bytes:694973 (694.9 KB) Interrupt:27 Base address:0xe000 lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1 RX packets:2150 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:2150 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:143456 (143.4 KB) TX bytes:143456 (143.4 KB)
The output from
route -n like this:
Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0 169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 1000 0 0 eth0 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 100 0 0 eth0
I do not know where the adress starting with 169.254 comes from. Could that be a part of the problem?
I am hoping for some assistance since I'm totally stuck here.
