Also what distro are you using?
Thankyou for replying to my problem so speedily.
At the age of 78 I find technical terms rather daunting but I will try to answer your queries.
I dowloaded and installed Ubuntu 8.10 Linux a week ago and had no problems. Problems began whenever I clicked on anything it required access to the Internet, this I didn't have.
I use an ADSL Modem MT882 supplied by TalkTalk it is always on. I connect through an USB, I have no ethernet connection on my PC.
IP Address 192.168.1.3 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 192.168.1.2
Phys Address 00.1D.6A.R2.AA.6A
I don't know how much of this is relevant, but still!
