I am an Ubuntu user for the last couple of years. Recently facing problem to connect my new laptop into the Internet. I have an ISP connection which provide me a NAT address.
I changed all the information in network configuration.The network icon shows it is connected to Internet but when I browse, ping shows no Internet connection. /etc/network/interfaces look like this:
auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.100.118(put you internet address provided by the ISP) gateway 192.168.100.1(gateway address) netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.100.0
And when I ping my DNS server IP get the reply from DNS server.
I can not understand the problem,it should be mentioned that I also changed the Physical address of my laptop for using the existing connection.
In windows the connection is working fine.
Any suggestion in this question will help me a lot.
Thanks in advance.
