Recently downloaded Ubuntu gamepack via USB flash drive. All went well as far as I know and except for my internet problems all is well. I do not no why, and would like some assistance in troubleshooting the problem. The system has no problems with connecting to the modem via Firefox when the default gateway is typed into the search tab but it cannot connect to anything else. I tryed the ping command but it could not find any of the websites I tryed. The last peace of information I can come up with is the output of the ifconfig command that I ran in the terminal, which I will post below this text. If any extra information is required to troubleshoot feel free to ask for it.

Hi @qw99 and welcome to :)

I may be telling you something that you already know, but your ifconfig output (& thanks for that ;)) appears to be deficient in the wifi area.

It should have a third bank of details commencing with either wlan0 or wlp13s0 or similar.

It sounds like your system is not detecting your wifi.

Or are you just using Ethernet?

Can you give us the output of

inxi -Fxs

Hi @qw99, and welcome! Are you running GamePack from the USB? Or did you install to the hard drive? Or install into VirtualBox or some other virtualization software?
This is a problem that, maybe you must doing some settings with network card.
Also check for driver network card. But I am not think so.
Hi qq, welcome to the forum!

You've gotten a lot of good advice so far, but let's get some things straightened out so we can help you better..

1. are you using wifi or directly connected to ethernet?
2. If you can't ping a domain name, it may be a dns error only, try pinging an ip, like google's public dns: 'ping' and see if it comes back.

Hello everyone,

it seems to be exactly the same problem I have running my Ubuntu Gamepack Installation. I'll try the things above and come back with more info.

But what I can say is, that I can reach my router via firefox. So I guess the network-card and drivers are ok.

Problem solved: I simply had to put the IP of my router as DNS-Server and it worked :D
