View Full Version : [ubuntu] Hardy Heron Install Cannot Get Internet Connection

August 7th, 2008, 10:26 PM

Installed 8.04 tonight on a new PC, however cannot get my internet to work.

Plugged in my modem ethernet cable and installed ubuntu.

When go into Firefox just get a server error (i.e. no Connection) the ethernet connection works when I plug it back into my Vista machine.

Have tried using Network manager:-
1. I tried the Auto DHCP configuration with no luck
2. Then tried manually, entered my IP,Gateway, DNS server details etc, and still no joy.

I have Virgin Broadband, I have no router yet so straight from Modem

PLEASE HELP, I am new to this and am stuck wondering how I can get the PC online:confused:

(P.S. Installed first time without the Ethernet cable attached, had the same problem so I re-installed with the Ethernet cable plugged in.)
