May 21st, 2009, 05:55 PM
I found an old laptop lying around so I decided to put it to use. I installed ubuntu 9.04 on it. The laptop is a HP pavillion ze 5300. It has a pentium 4 2.4ghz processor and 512 ram. The install went fine. I encountered no errors or anything but when I try to connect to the internet or use my network, The data is only transfering in bytes. Anyone got any ideas. It is doing this no matter what form i try to use, ie up dating from command line, synaptic package manager, firefox, network to my other computers. I've checked the connection with another computer so I know its not the cable or anything. The firewall is also disabled.
