Networking Problems, not seeing internet


Hey, I am a new user to Ubuntu/Linux so far I haven't had the best time with it, but trying to work it out. Right now I'm having a problem with my internet. As the looks of it my computer doesn't send any info out dose anyone have any info that would help out here?

Thanks

Please post the hardware configuration you are using, we need to know if this is dial up, or DSL or a cable modem etc. If you have an ethernet card, what type? What you have done to try and diagnose the problem etc.

A post stating you can not connect to the internet doesn't help at all.

This is my second time to install Ubuntu the first time it hooked up to the internet without me doing anything I just installed it yesterday and I haven't touched a anything i've been resetting my modem and router, and I'm running cable internet. If there is any other info you would like to know just let me know and it will be posted asap.

O.K. so you have a router connected to a modem. Open a konsole and run this command '/sbin/ifconfig' and post the results. Here is what it will look like.

/sbin/ifconfig

[/QUOTE]

On the left side you will see the names of any configured ethernet connections. What is important is the second line for eth0, the field labeled inet addr. It should contain an IP address.

Post what you find...
