post the output of these commands as root from a terminal please

lspci -v

lsmod

ifconfig -a

route -n

good luck. (don't post the output of the good luck luck command, it probably won't return anything ;-) just lightening things up.)

i actually just got it working..

i ripped out the network card from my sisters computer and put it in mine.

it seemed to be a 3com card incompatiblity, i found references to it floating around the web.

many thanks for the quick reply though

dom...

p.s no doubt this will be one problem of many i will have to face

it could've been a driver problem, 3com typically has good support. in any event, glad you got it sorted.
