help I’m using ubuntu 10.10 firefox and chrome won’t load I haven’t change any settings since last on yesterday I usally put it right by rebooting not today, chrome: error 105, firefox: server not found
Reboot the router… see if it will connect… if not
Can you ping the router ?
Does the router report that it is connected ?
I have rebooted tried different sites, still the same but I don’t know how to ping just typing ping returns more options ?
Is ythis a wired or wireless connection ?
Can any other PC’s connect to the internet through the same router ?
Post the output from:
sudo lshw -C network
By any chance, does your router’s firewall block connections to Chrome / Firefox?

I don’t have a firewall but still the same as yesterday !
So I take it this is a wired connection ?
Can you send the output from:
ping -c 5 192.168.0.1
ping -c 5 22.214.171.124
Are there any flashing lights on the router next to the numbers 1 through 4 when you run this ?
Do any of the lights 1 though 4 EVER flash… specifically the number who’s port the cable is plugged into.
Which other lights are ON, on the router ?
Do any other PC’s connect to the internet using the same router, and are they able to connect ?
It is IMPORTANT that you answer ALL questions.

yes this is wired via a ethernet cable
the lights for 4(port cable) and the standby is steady the lights for both the tick and double arrow are flashing I’ve always used the same port
The problem is your router is NOT getting an active internet connection.
If you know your login details… enter 192.168.0.1 into your web browsers address bar to access the routers web interface and check the settings.
If you don’t know your login details, or how to enter them in the routers web interface… get in touch with your ISP.
This is NOT a problem with your Linux PC… your PC is talking to your router as it should… the problem is your router is unable to connect to the outside world.
If your ISP is Virgin… this link may help:
The tick symbol should NOT be flashing… flashing signifies that the router is attempting to get a connection to the web… it would be solid green if it had a connection.
Above quote from here:
What do the lights on the Virgin Media Hub mean?
Sounds like he’s been cut off from his ISP. You should contact them and speak about your service.
