Internet


Hi,
I installed ubuntu 10 just yesterday. Everything was working just fine. The auto-update function advised me to download and install the latest updates and so I did. It was over 300 MB. I installed it, did a reboot and my internet connection was lost. I tried a few things I found on this forum yesterday. Nothing worked.
I can go on-line on the same computer using windows 7. But I always have to reboot to try the different solutions.
I'm a real Newbie in Ubuntu.
Tnx
All right that's fixed!
But now I just have to fix Firefox...

Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

Great to hear you got your connection problem fixed. Could you share your experience with the community so others in similar situations can take advantage of it?

Also you mention you have to 'fix Firefox', what's wrong with it? The more information you give, the more adequate help you get.

Kind regards,

Eric
