    Brand new to Ubuntu. Issues with LAN connection

    I have verified that the wireless connection works using another computer. I just installed Ubuntu for the first time. Is there a specific way to set up a wired connection? The wire is plugged into the computer, but it doesn't seem to recognize it.

    The Wired connections, most often, work out of the box.

    What LAN card do you have on board? Check for 'Ethernet controller' with following command in Terminal:
    Code:
    lspci
    The following can help you diagnoze the issue:

    When I run that command, no Ethernet controller is shown. I know there is an ethernet port on the motherboard though.

    This command is much more concise and comprehensive:
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C network
    Post the output thanks.

    sudo lshw -C network output

    *-network DISABLED
    description: Wireless interface

    This is after I have plugged in a Linksys Wireless Usb Adapter Model WUSB11 ver. 2.5 and did a complete reinstall of ubuntu with this wireless adapter plugged in during the reinstall.

    Re: Brand new to Ubuntu. Issues with LAN connection

    Are you dual-booting Ubuntu with any other OS? If you are, then check in the other OS if Ethernet is working.
    You can check in the BIOS to see if it is Enabled, if it isn't then enable it.

    I am not dual booting with any other OS. How do you check the BIOS to see if it is enabled?

    Re: Brand new to Ubuntu. Issues with LAN connection

    When you 1st power on the machine you should see near the upper right corner during the bios boot a listing of f-key boot options. The list may not stay listed long. You have have to boot it once to see the list, write it down, then boot a 2nd time to actually key in the option.
    The key listing is bios dependant. Some machines use F2, some F12, some use the DEL key to enter bios setup screen.
    Once in the bios setup, you will have to page thru the setup options for the motherboard you have.

    Re: Brand new to Ubuntu. Issues with LAN connection

    I accessed the BIOS for my motherboard, but couldn't find any options even close to on board LAN or ethernet. My motherboard is http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/...n.php?S_ID=451 . Any other ideas?
