Picking up internet connection with Ubuntu and other linux on various M/c's.
Regarding another newbie not being able to pick up the internet connection with Ubuntu 11.4.
I have had similar problems, on various M/c's e.g. Dell Gx620; Dell Optiplex 745;755;HP d530s; Hp s3340.uk , BUT on the Dell ultra small format Optiplex gx 620 ,745 and 755, i have had no problems ,but i have the same problems with Ubuntu 10.10 also, this also with open Suse 11.4, as i had not heard other people with the same problems ,i was wondering if it was my BT hard wired modem,but now i have read another newbie with the same problem, but not sure what M/c. they are on.
Have read a Thread and will give that a try, thank you so much for the reply to the other newbie. For myself new to Linux,itcan be rather baffling and thank you so much ,for the other experienced people in taking the time to reply.
