I am very new to linux, and am using Ubuntu 10.10 on a Sony vaio with Marvell Yukon 88E8056.
Everytime I try to connect using DSL, it tries connecting for a second and then gives me 'wired network disconnected.' On trying several times, i MAY get connected to the internet. [Sometimes it connects at the first try and sometimes never and i have to restart and try again.] Even after i disconnect and try to reconnect, the same problem persists, and i have to go through the process of trying to reconnect again and again.
The same connection connects correctly in windows 7.
