    Can't Get On The Net

    Hello: I am completely computer illiterate. I got the disc for Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. I got it downloaded without a problem, which is a major task for me. When I log on and click on Firefox, it takes me to the "Welcome to Ubuntu 8.04LTS" page. Also when I click "Getting Started" it goes to "Address not Found". At the Network Settings it has my wireless connection named. Can somebody help me from here? I would greatly appreciate it. Gunn

    The terminal is waiting for some input. Write ifconfig and then press enter. Copy and paste whatever appears to the forum.
