Using a public ISP, I have to connect to the internet like this:
-Open 'New Connection Wizard'
-Choose 'Connect to the Internet', next
-Choose 'Set up my network manually', next
-'Connect to a broadband connection that requires a username and password', next
Then I'd enter the information provided to me by the ISP, and there we go, I had internet. So then I went upstairs today to perform the same process on my computer running Linux when it dawned on me that I have absolutely no idea how to do this. I had just plugged into the internet using an ethernet cable before, and looking at the interface provided to me now, there's just simply not an option to do anything like this.
The options are 'Wired Internet' which is faded out for some reason so I can't select it, 'auto eth0' which is selected whenever I plug in an ethernet cable, and a menu about setting up or configuring a VPN connection.
So my question is... what should I do?
