Please help establish Internet connection!


Hi, first post here, this is a total Linux noob talking
I have a new clean Kubuntu just installed.
I have a wireless router (access point) that I used to connect to internet in Windows 7. I plugged the internet cable into the router, connected computer to wireless network, created a new broadband connection using login and password given by the provider, and internet connection worked. I want eventually to have the same on Kubuntu. Here are the ipconfig output from Windows with the working internet configuration:
Code:
Адаптер PPP Высокоскоростное подключение (Broadband Connection):

   DNS-суффикс подключения . . . . . :
   IPv4-адрес. . . . . . . . . . . . : 188.168.64.219
   Маска подсети subnet. . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.255
   Основной шлюз. . . . . . . . . : 0.0.0.0

Адаптер беспроводной локальной сети Беспроводное сетевое соединение (Wireless adapter):

   DNS-суффикс подключения . . . . . : domain
   Локальный IPv6-адрес канала . . . : fe80::88e9:2315:e9d6:a830%12
   IPv4-адрес. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.2
   Маска подсети subnet. . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
   Основной шлюз. . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
I want to have the same thing on Kubuntu, but before that I want to be able to have at least the direct cable connection working. Had no problems setting it up on Puppy Linux, but fail in Kubuntu. Wireless connection with the router is no problem, it worked right away.
After plugging the internet cable to the network card I have this:

I tried to set up new wired and dsl (not sure which I need, probably DSL as it has the login and password) connections in the Network Connections window but nothing works.
Below are some internet configurations that I guess are needed:

Code:
sudo ifconfig

Thanks for your response, mirni!
At the first glance, my understanding is that the article is on wi-fi.
Right now I only need to set up a simple cable connection - create a new connection with login and password, plug in the internet cable into laptop and get connected. I don't know how to do even that, let alone configuring wifi card.
Anyways, I will scan through the site you've suggested for answers, thank you again.

The strange thing was, I did not have eth0 there. Auth eth0 was displayed in the bottom right corner after plugging the cable (picture in my 1st post), but when I opened Network Connections, the Wired menu was empty!

Where eth0 icon is right-click on it and see if everything is enabled.

Done!

It's very strange... I tried Kubuntu, UbuntuNetbook, Ubuntu 10.10, and something else I can't already recall, with no avail. Now I am writing from Mint - the connection established right away, I just had to plug the cable and create a new DSL Connection.
Computer God moves in mysterious ways...
Anyway, I'm happy and after installing some basic soft will be trying to get Wireless Internet working.
Thanks guys!
