[CLOSED]No DNA Service

I have recently installed Helium. I have had some problems and I have been working on them, with a number of reboots. I find now that when I boot the system up, I cannot make an internet connection because I do not have DNS service.

I have been reading https://wiki.debian.org/NetworkConfigur … ameservers, but I'm still unsure what to do next. I believe there should be an /etc/bind directory, but there is not. Consequently, there is no DNS service on the PC. That leaves me in the dilemma that I need to install DNA service, but I have no DNS service to do it.

So I am wondering. Is it better to reinstall Helium or can I reboot the system with a CDROM live disk and use that to download the DNS programs to the current installation? Or is the some other way to get DNS working so that I can make an internet connection with the current installation?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Jim A.

Do you mean you are missing dnsutils maybe?

Re: [CLOSED]No DNA Service

bind? I don't have /etc/bind and my DNS is certainly working.
Please confirm with sth like

ping -c3 8.8.8.8
ping -c3 archive.org
ping -c3 2a00:1450:4001:81f::200e

What exactly did you do?

Re: [CLOSED]No DNA Service

Guys, thanks for the response on this one, but for expediency, I am going to bite the bullet and reinstall helium.

I think this will get me going again and likely will a quicker resolution than figuring out what is wrong here.
