I recently installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu server 14.04. The install was fine.
But after the install the problems begin. To be sure I have al the recent updates I typed
sudo apt-get update. The result I get is no update only errors. It somehow can't fetch any of the stated links. So I tought maybe the links are wrong but that ain't the problem. I changed the links and it still doesn't work.
So I tought maybe there is a problem with my internet connection (I use WIFI). So I googled around and found this post: Ubuntu 14.04 Server - WiFi WPA2 Personal. After I tried that the following results: iwconfig:
lo no wireless extensions wlan0 IEE 802.11ng ESSID:off/any Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=20 dBm Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragnebt thr:off Power Management:on
lo all the normal values
/etc/network/interfaces I have the following:
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet static address 192.168.000.15 # (000) is something else netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.000.1 ipconfig from a windows pc gives (so not from the router itself) wpa-ssid the network name wpa-psk the network password dns-nameservers 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11
Also ping doesn't give me anything to work with.
If I ping the ip adress I entered in interfaces it will receive the packages.
If I ping google I get
During installation I installed the following packages:
- ubuntu basic server;
- Apache server;
- mail server;
- samba file server
When I do
sudo ifdown wlan0 && sudo ifup -v wlan0 all things seems to be normal except for 2 things: on the 1st line:
ifdown: interface wlan0 not configured and on the last line:
Failed to bring up wlan0
Update After a few reboots iwconfig now returns:
lo no wireless extensions wlan0 IEE 802.11ng ESSID:"my network name" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.427 GHz Access Point: blabla Bit rate=54Mb/s Tx-Power=20 dBm Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragnebt thr:off Power Management:on and so on
So I hope everything is now working
If I need to add more information please let me know. I hope someone can fix my problem with internet connection. Thanks in advance.
