I just installed ubuntu studio. During the installation I could not configure the dhcp interface. I now have studio running, but no network connectivity. I am on a Lenovo T60 laptop and want to enable my wireless interface. WHat should I do?

Post the output of the following to start with.
sudo lshw -C network

Usually compatible network devices are activated using DHCP by default, regardless of whether or not networking was configured during the installation.

I would expect them to be discovered. During the install it did discover the ethernet controller, but not the wireless. If I run the hardware tests, it does see them both, but I have been unable to establish any connectivity withteh internet.

Hi Diver Boy
I have a very similar problem on a Dell Inspirion. Although the machine seems aware of the ethernet and wireless networks I con't seem to make it connect. If I boot with the ethernet in place then I get wired network ok, but no wireless (which I'd like as default anyway)

lets hope we find a solution soon
