Welcome to LQ!!

You will have to supply a few more details.....

Which version of Ubuntu?

What is your internet connection?
  • Cable, DSL, Dialup?
  • Wired or Wireless
  • Static IP or DHCP?
  • Router?
And your hardware---specifically what Wireless card, if you are using wireless

Better you start a separate thread about csh -- things go more smoothly with one topic per thread.

Regards connecting to the Internet, what hardware do you have? Have you already connected to the Internet from some other OS?

You already have a broadband modem/router/"DHCP server" set up and configured to connect to your ISP? And your ubuntu computer is wired to it?

If that is the case then I would expect (without 100% confidence) ubuntu to connect to the Internet.

Please post the output from these commands, entered in a terminal emulator
Code:
ifconfig
ping linuxquestions.org
ping 75.126.162.205
It's easier to read if you put it in code tags (that's a link to instructions or you may prefer to use "Advanced Edit" mode which has a # button for code tags).

As the man says, this one should be easy.

Have you tried the Network setup utility in Ubuntu? (In the menus somewhere...)
