    Angry Cannot connect to internet from recovery mode

    I'm having the same problem as the people in this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...light=b43-phy0

    where my averatec 3200 laptop will never boot into X, it just gives the error looping forever.

    So I went into recovery mode and tried to install b43-fwcutter off the hardy cd, but part of that install is downloading the correct firmware from the site.

    I have my laptop wired via ethernet right now, but even a simple ping to any host fails.

    the only thing that shows up when I do "ifconfig" is the "lo" local loopback.

    From another thread someone had asked to see what was in /etc/network/interfaces. I have:
    Code:
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    and

    Code:
    auto eth0
    #iface eht0 inet dhcp
    I also tried running
    Code:
    ifup eth0
    as was suggested in another thread on how to get internet up in recivery mode, but when I do that I get the message
    Code:
    Ignoring unknown interface eth0=eth0.
    Any help?

    Run
    sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
    Change
    #iface eht0 inet dhcp
    to
    iface eth0 inet dhcp
    Press Crtl+O to save. Then Ctrl+X to Quit.
