    Cannot Establish Connection via Ethernet

    Hi all,

    I am new to ubuntu. Total beginner. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and am not able to establish a network connection via ethernet port. I have tried edit network connections and typed in all my network information but nothing happens. I have also done the sudo lshw -C network command and it tells me my network is UNCLAIMED but recognizes my ethernet cable (below). I have also come across a possible solution that involves building kernel modules but this is much too complicated for my level of expertise. I was wondering if any of you had a solution to this problem?


    freesurfer3@freesurfer3-desktop:~$ sudo lshw -C network
    [sudo] password for freesurfer3:
    *-network UNCLAIMED

    Where do you usually get your IP address from, for example, a router?

    Sorry I don't know if this will be much help but the computer is at a university so we obtain our IP from an ethernet wall port. However our machine is dual-boot and the internet works fine on the windows side.

    Try the command dmesg | grep eth and paste the entire result here.

    When you typed in all your network information, where did you do that? In Network Manger? Someplace else? Exactly what information did you provide?

    We typed it in under the airport-like thing at edit networks.
