I just got the Ubuntu Update (10.04 (lucid) GNOME 2.30.2 and Kernel 2.6.32-30 generic, GCC version 4.4.3.) and I have started using it. However, a time came wherein I experienced difficulty in accessing the internet. The message in the dialogue box would say, “Can’t find the server.” Sometimes, however, when I click the Try Again button, it would work. It is really annoying for me since I need to try it over and over again in order gain access to the internet. I have never experienced this before using the 4.10. There is also another message which says: “Ubuntu cannot find the server.” I wanted to go back to the previous settings, but then I don’t know how. Please help me. Thank you so much.
Difficulty in accessing the internet after an Ubuntu update
I guess you are trying to connect to a wireless network for your internet connection, right? In case that is the case then you will need to do a ping to a website and see if you get a response, for instance www.google.com. You should do a ping to an IP address that is outside of your network and then see what will the response.
When you are searching for wireless networks during the log on process and by doing that you have your wireless adapter set to "roam", then you should be able to see all available wireless networks by just clicking on the network icon on your panel. One you have done that, you can thereafter choose the network that you want to connect to, and then you will be prompted to provide a private key.
