I've been using Ubuntu for about a month (on and off with OSX), so I have no idea what I'm doing. I've never had to deal with networking problems in Ubuntu, since everything was just automatically set up connecting my modem directly to the PC's onboard ethernet port.
I have a Linksys WRT54G2 router that I'd like to use with the Ubuntu PC and my Macbook (both wired connections). Wireless would be a plus, but isn't completely necessary at this point. If I connect my modem to the router and the router to the Ubuntu PC, it says I'm connected (on "Auto eth0") but I can't access any sites. I've tried to create new configurations in Network Connections and messed with them a bit, but I don't really know what info to enter (for MAC address, DNS servers and IP if I need to do it manually, etc.).
I've Googled and searched this forum for a solution for the past 2 hours and still can't figure it out..so sorry for the noob question. Please keep in mind that I have absolutely no experience if you post..
Thanks in advance.
