He's noob, and most probably running a wireless router with dhcp, telling him to 'sudo ifconfig wlan0 up' will do basically nothing. The point is to make sure that each step is followed correctly and gets the expected result. Once that is established, he can start using the standard gui tool in Ubuntu, which I believe network manager.
