    Question Ubuntu connects to the internet in virtual box but does not on livecd

    Hello everyone
    today i need a little bit of help

    Here are my specifications

    Thinkpad t520 (standard)
    running windows 7 enterprise
    planning on installing ubuntu 10.04.3 (full not wubi)
    i5 vpro (could have to do with this 'secure' processor)

    Whenever i boot off the liveCD it does not connect to internet wired or wireless, it only connects when it is running off a virtual machine

    This is a university laptop i have been given i called the IT department (derp-artment) and they told me i can install an alternative OS but they did not know how to help me...

    Thanks.
    (i do have the drivers for the virtual machine installed, maybe windows has some kind of hardware or software block)

    It may be the case that the wired and wireless don't have proper drivers for 10.04, which came out quite some time ago. Try 11.04, you should be able to get at least wired connection on it.

    Unfortunately, if there are no drivers for the network, then there are no drivers for the network.

    Check on the right side of the page, only 11.04 is certified, 10.10 works only if it is pre-installed and with notes.

    This laptop has a Sandy Bridge processor and those came out after 10.04 was released, a year and a half is a long time in the computer world. If the network cards did not exist before 10.04 was released, then 10.04 will not have the proper drivers.

    When it comes to the different versions of Ubuntu, truth of the matter is that 10.04, 10.10 and 11.04 are not that different (use 11.04 in Classic mode).
