View Full Version : [ubuntu] Help with (wired) internet connection in 10.04?

November 4th, 2010, 06:11 AM
I've just installed the 64 bit 10.04 onto my new netbook, with ample specs to run the full desktop version rather than the stripped down netbook version. My only problem (at the moment) is that my wired internet connection is not recognized within the operating system, yet while I was downloading/installing Ubuntu it had no problem finding and using the connection then. When I boot into Windows 7 or plug the ethernet cable into my Mac, the connection is established immediately, and no need for manual entering of anything because everything is auto-detected. Can someone steer me in the right direction on this?

The really strange thing is I've run Ubuntu off a USB stick and when booting off that the wired connection was immediately recognized after startup.

If it matters at all, eth0 doesn't show up anywhere when I type ifconfig into terminal
