I am new to Ubuntu, and wants to fix the problem, any help would be appreciable.
Network does not seem to be configured. Either you can directly edit the files, or you can assign valid network information like ip address through network manager. You can find the network manager icon in the system tray. You can right and edit the connections and assign the address and other information.
You have got the IP address for your network interface. Have you set it up manually or is it through DHCP? And how do you connect to internet using windows?
And you seem to be on internet using Ubuntu already. Is this the same machine you were facing issues?
I am connected through LAN in windows and ubuntu too. Earlier I have fedoracore 12 and network was fine but one day unfortunately my machine get turned off due to empty powerbackup. So afterward the network gone on FC12 and I installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. It was observed then the network is not working with Ubuntu 10.04 also. The machine is same.
I have got it manually instead of DHCP. But now i did not c network manager sign at panel near sound and chat, which was there earlier when I set IPv4 settings manually.
help to sort the problem. I have installed Realtek semiconductor device again but the problem is still there.
Right Click on the top panel and add Notification Area.
See if the Network Icon is getting displayed there.
You can right click on that icon and check for the settings Else you acn add the connection.
Ubuntu 10.04 should be able to automatically detect your connection.
