I have installed 2 computers with Ubuntu.
On the primary computer running Ubuntu, when i type http://www.google.co.in
it shows a message that unable
to lookup the site so i am unable to surf the net.
Only once i was able to surf the net through the same computer.
Q1. I was unable to connect to the internet
I checked a few setting using as root:
/sbin/ifconfig -a and it showed the ip address, broadcast address and net mask appropriately set. for eth0
netstat showed all the configured ports.
I was able to successfully ping the network card. and /etc/resolv.conf showed me the ip address of the dns server
I was able to surf the internet from Microsoft XP running on the same pc.
To my surprise, /etc/sysconfig directory was no where to be found in the entire system.
Also, I could not find ifcfg-eth0, /etc/dhcpcd files anywhere in the system using locate or find commands.
Why Are system files that are present in Red Hat not present in Ubuntu and why am i not able to connect to web?
Q2: The other computer running Ubuntu runs internet only when the primary computer is running Microsoft XP, if the primary computer runs Ubuntu it cannot surf the net.
