I can't get my internet to work on ubuntu 5.04
I've decided that I want to make the switch from windows to linux. My friend reccomended ubuntu for first time users so I I just downloaded and installed ubuntu 5.04. First of all I am not very good with computers in general, but I have a strong interest in learning more about them. The problem is that my internet doesn't work. I think I didn't set up my network configurations properly when I first installed the OS. The computer that I am using is a dell 700m laptop and I am trying to connect to the internet through a cable modem. I'm not sure if it matters but I also have a router connected to the modem so that I can get my other computers on the internet too. Does anyone have a solution to fix this problem?
