Hello!

I have an old PC, running Linux Server(ubuntu) 9.10.

I cannot connect to the internet, when I plug in the cable I don't get lights in my port(you know the green and yellow lights). Can I somehow tell myself that there is internet? I tried to connect with SSH, that did not work, it's like the netdriver card is broken :S

Is this a new problem on a system that has been running? What were the circumstances when it quit working? Is the "netdriver card" Ethernet adapter?

No lights implies no connection or bad card. Assuming this is an Ethernet adapter, check the pins and make sure they look undamaged and each pin is in its own slot (they should not be touching).

Ping the loopback address (127.0.0.1) to see if the adapter responds. Not sure how? http://www.basiclinuxcommands.com/2009/02/ping-127001-ping-localhost-loopback.html

Post the results.

Good Luck

What is the network setup???

Is the cable running from ROUTER or MODEM... If so please let me know the make and model...

But basically if the lights didn't turn on green means it clearly indicates there is no connection...

Hey, I was cleaning my PC and the network worked before.
