First of all, I have a WIRED LAN, NOT wireless. My main computer (comp1) is connected to the internet via cable modem, which I recently got the connection working. Comp1 has 2 NICs, one connected to the cable modem, and the other one connected via crossover to Comp2. I had been able to (finally) share internet with Windoze so I know my cable/connections are good. Now that I have ditched Win, and are running Ubuntu 9.04 on both Comps, I am having trouble getting an internet connection on Comp2. I have tried to edit the connection mannually, but to no avail. It doesnt help that I am a little under-educated when it comes to the nitty-gritty of the technical underpinnings. I am still quite new to the shell as well, but do have a natural commonsense ability to follow along with info/advice. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
