Hi, I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04, then did the useual update to get all the latest fixxs.
I then downloaded the latest Nvidia driver from the official site and installed it.
After rebooting I noticed that I had no ethernet connection, I reformatted again and did it again but still the same thing is happening.
Could someone help me out and guide me through getting my internet connection back please as I'm a newb and need all the help I can get.
For ifconfig I get:
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1

TX packets:8 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:480 (480.0 B) TX bytes:480 (480.0 B)
For ifconfig down I get:
down: error fetching interface information: Device not found
For ifconfig up I get:
up: error fetching interface information: Device not found
The ethernet driver is installed as it was working before I installed the Nvidia driver.
