Re: internet connection less then 5 minutes

Hi Herbert,

try a few things:

$ ping # ping google nameserver to check if you have an internet connection.

$ ps -ealf | grep dhclient # check if dhclient is running. You could kill it and run it manually in the foreground to see what's happening if you're not getting an address after ifdown / ifup

$ cat /etc/resolv.conf # check if you have nameservers listed there. If not, add google nameservers in that file:


...what do you mean by "have internet for less than 5 minutes"? Does the connection disappear? If so, reboot, check "ifconfig -a" when you have a connection and when it's gone. Also check resolv.conf when it works and when it doesn't to see if it gets modified.

Check the contents of /etc/network/interfaces to see if you have something like:

auto eth1
allow-hotplug eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp

Good luck!

Hi Gianluca Bonetti,

Hello Herbert

You have to modify /etc/apt/sources.list to point to the current repositories.

deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie-kfreebsd main
deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie-kfreebsd/updates main
deb-src http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie-kfreebsd main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie-kfreebsd/updates main

I did that. Thanks!

But the problem is: apt can not resolve the address. Using
a browser I can not access google.com. 

I only have an ip address after the boot. If I do 'ifdown' 'ifup'
I do not get an ip from dhcp. And the internet connection can be 
used for less then 5 minutes.
