I'm trying to setup Ubuntu 8.10 so I can use the internet on my Toshiba TE2100.

In System, Preferences, Network Configuration, Auto Eth0 [Edit], IPv4 Settings my method is [Automatic (DHCP Address Only)] and I've typed in my DNS server and the internet still doesn't work.

Can you open a terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and type:


cat /etc/resolv.conf

It should display DNS servers that you have specified.

I managed to fix it by using sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces and making the appropriate changes for my internet settings.
