View Full Version : Internet connection

February 11th, 2009, 11:49 AM
Hello all,
I am switching to Ubuntu because I am tired of Windows and after familiarizing myself with Ubuntu I find it to be excellent and maximizes my system and its resources. The only problem I have is obtaining an internet connection. I have Orange ADSL. I have tried the instructions in the documentation, but still no connection. Ideas? Any help is appreciated.
