Acer aspire one, internet (wired and wireless) isnt working. Help!
Hi, i have had this acer aspire one for about a year now. I was running ubuntu, then updated to ubuntu 9.10. It was working fine, then all of a sudden the internet stopped working. Both wired and wireless. When i plug in an ethernet cable it loads for a while then says cannot connect. So i figured that there ws something messed up with my software, as i have had to play with this piece of garbage laptop many times. So i got a new iso for ubuntu and installed it. Still no success. I then tried Mint, no success. Now im running eeebuntu off a usb and no internet still. Ubuntu 9.10 is still installed, but eeebuntu is just running of a usb. I looked it up in google, but it seems all they seem to ask is if it can "ping". I tried this and it wouldnt ping. So i need some help, if anyone can. Btw, im not very good at computer stuff and new to linux. But i do know some things. I appreciate any help.
