I'm currently attempting to install 14.1 on a new computer via USB. No Wireless. It's plugged into the ethernet port on a Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 ATX mother board with an AMD FX-6350 3.9 GHz 6 core processor. I tried 14.04 but it wouldn't even boot, when I looked into that it appeared to be a conflict with the mobo or processor. Right now I'm just running from the
try Ubuntu before you install option. I'd like to be connected to the internet before I consider installing. I'm not super familiar with the Ubuntu terminal but I'm not afraid to mess with it. The network works properly on both wired and wireless Windows 7 and 8 machines connected.
Things I've tried:
- Rebooting and resetting my modem and router,
- Manually entering my ipv4, it says it connects but I get no internet connection. I've triple checked to ensure I got it right
- Adding 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 to the DNS servers
- Resetting networking with sudo service network-manager restart, nothing.
- ping 188.8.131.52 (my ip) (64 bytes from (184.108.40.206): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.025 ms)(repeat until Ctrl-Z)
- ping google.com (ping: unknown host google.com)(single time)
- ping 220.127.116.11 (PING 18.104.22.168 (22.214.171.124) 56(84) bytes of data. From 126.96.36.199 icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable)(repeat until Ctrl-Z)
- Using a new USB drive to install versions 13.04, 13.1, 14.04, and 14.1. 14.1 is the only version that boots every time, still no internet connection. Also, 14.1 seems to be the only version that boots reliably
Probably a few other things that I can't remember right now. Any help would be appreciated!
