Please help dont want me mate to give up on ubuntu before she has even started.

still don't get what exactly you want to change?

do you have fixed IPs and want to assign a different IP, Gateway and so on to your network card? or change to DHCP.. because that is done how I posted earlier.. tried this? Why didn't it work and was there an error message?

in other words: what settings exactly do you need changed?
