Hi,

Im a first time linux user and have always wanted to give ubuntu a go, so i installed it when i recently formatted windows.

Basically the problem im having, is that whenever i boot into ubuntu i cant get any network connectivity, although the network manager says that im connected to my home network. I can't ping my router, or connect to my routers web interface via firefox.

Ive tried to do the powerdown with the plug out thing twice to no avail, i also used a script i found to default the use of the r8168 drivers instead of the r8169 drivers. Ive also tried DHCP, manually assigned settings and still nothing works.

So yeah, im completely lost, and also a bit annoyed :D any help would be appreciated.

cheers,

Glen.
