When I said I have internet I mean I have a working network connection . Hence my typing here, through a dual boot PC with Windows XP and Kubuntu .
Now when I typed
sudo lshw -C network
When I typed in sudo dhclient :
Hardware Lister (lshw) - B.02.12.01
usage: lshw [-format] [-options ...]
-version print program version (B.02.12.01)
format can be
-html output hardware tree as HTML
-xml output hardware tree as XML
-short output hardware paths
-businfo output bus information
options can be
-class CLASS only show a certain class of hardware
-C CLASS same as '-class CLASS'
-disable TEST disable a test (like pci, isapnp, cpuid, etc. )
-enable TEST enable a test (like pci, isapnp, cpuid, etc. )
-quiet don't display status
-sanitize sanitize output (remove sensitive information like serial numbers, etc.)
I have an ethernet cable connected from a router to my network card . Now for the drivers, I think that no drivers are updated, because I don't have internet in the kubuntu OS. I am using kubuntu from a dual boot (wubi) so it probably uses some of my windows drivers (?) Sorry if that was wrong, I am an ubuntu newbie.
