After spending hours trying to get my wired Comcast Internet to work on Ubuntu, I thought I had finally got it to work when I discovered that I needed to set it as a static IP by setting the Ipv4 as manual and filling in the required information (I was able to see the up and down arrows afterwards). It only took a few minutes to realize I still had more work to do. Firefox pages load indefinitely and downloads from the software center stay in waiting mode. My question is, what did I do wrong?
My stats and such:
Mac is BC:AE:C5:99:FD:14
(For cloned I just put the same).
I don't think there is any 802.1x security so I left it unchecked.
IP is 126.96.36.199.
Subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.
Gateway is 192.168.1.1.
Dns servers are 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, 192.168.1.1, 220.127.116.11.
Search domains I didn't know any so I put google.com (that's probably the issue but I don't know).
Also Ipv6 I left as Automatic.
My pc is dual booted with Windows 7 64bit and Ubuntu 12.04 64bit.
EDIT: Ok, I tried NlightNfotis's directions, here is what happened:
Pinging www.askubuntu.com returned
tradping: unknown host www.askubuntu.com Doing traceroute returned
the program 'traceroute' can be installed in the following packages: inetutils-traceroute
It then told me I could install it with sudo apt-get, and I tried that but it "could not find the package"
Adding 18.104.22.168 to DNS did nothing, unfortunately. 22.214.171.124 does nothing also.
I am very new to Linux and Ubuntu, by the way.
Setting the connection to DHCP doesn't disconnect it, but the internet still refuses to load anything.
Still have nothing, netstat -nr doesnt show any items under any category.
Here is a random pic with data, maybe it'll help. http://www.mediafire.com/view/?zk2yjn7khfocf94# (IPv4 from when its on manual)
Any and all help is appreciated.
