Ubuntu updating connection failed nm ifupdown connection

The next step is to see what the dhcp client says is going wrong and make sure the connections are correct.If you have a working config in other distro then feel free to use it but you will want to make sure that you dont have a conflict with using the same ip twice.EDIT: The issue seems to be Network Manager isn't updating /etc/correctly.There are a few related bugs reported, and even though they were allegedly fixed years ago, the problem apparently still exists.From the look of it i see one potential problem and that is your dns server is not the same as the gateway and your dhcp client will probably think it is so check where your computer thinks the dns server isok the dhcp network from router, works fine on all boxes when running win xp, set to auto dhcp.

Im not sure why you have the 169 ip but im guessing you may have some static route somewhere which you will want to get rid of if your definately using dhcp.I'm trying to connect to a VPN through Open VPN on Ubuntu 10.04.I first tried the network-manager-openvpn package, but unfortunately, Network Manager seems to have a few bugs that prevent me from connecting out of the box.

Is is that you can't resolve domains but you can connect to external ips or you can't do neither.

What i want is to see the router, in this kind of setup, help.

Bug fixing is in progress and it appears a number of patches where already included in recent ubuntu updates.

I recommend checking the ubuntu bug database for the latest state of the VPN issues: Search for “VPN” in the ubuntu bug database (launchpad.net) This monday was sweet.
