Toshiba Satellite won't see network with Ubuntu


Hi all ... I'm a newbie again.

Toshiba Satellite S5214 can't see a network connection. Running Ubuntu 2.6

uname -r says 2.6.31-14-generic
ifconfig only shows loopback 127.0.0.1 with a 000 mask.

Knoppix live cd shows the same ... no network seen.

Wired, not wireless. Works fine in Winblows 7 Home Premium.

Any ideas mail me jgraves16@gmail.com

Thanks

2.6 is the kernel version not Ubuntu version

may be the button for wireless switching on/off -which is the combination of Fn button and F# button where F# is from 1 to 9- may be switched off so that the overall wireless functionality of the Laptop is switched off.. try turning it on
BTW sending help to email is not a good idea .posting thoughts on forums is much better
