Hello! I'm a new Linux convert and I'm attempting to get an internet connection on my craptop. When I was installing the OS onto my internal hard drive from my USB Stick "LiveCD", the ethernet connection worked. However, now that it is installed permanently on my hard drive, I can not for the life of me get a connection through the ethernet. I'm not a nab, and I have the wires correctly placed and everything. On startup Ubuntu is showing me all of the updates it's ready to install, but I can't do without internet. I've looked around for an answer for a day and can't find it. Please Ubuntu forums, you're my only hope.
