I have a dedicated server which I have just upgraded from Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10 (it was running the LTS version), and it had seemed to have upgraded successfully until I tried to access the internet in a browser. I was unable to access any websites (although I am able to ping) and it seems there is no outgoing connection at all to the web, yet I can connect to my server remotely via SSH and remote desktop tools such as NoMachine. I checked the network devices available, and it shows three:
I checked eth0 and it seems to be working, with my server IP and it is active and sending & receiving packets normally, yet I am still unable to access the internet.
Looking at the Network Connections window on the Wired Connections tab, there is only a "Auto eth1" connection, but shouldn't there be an "Auto eth0" as that is the connection it seems my server should/is using? Is a matter of changing the default connection of Ubuntu to eth0 to access the internet?
Any help would be appreciated. Cheers.
