how about checking all your settings and maybe resetting them. To better assist you; tell us of any logs or error messages.

I don't get anything other than the default Firefox message...

However, when I ran ifconfig, I noticed that it didn't give me an IP address, hinting that something went wrong with the dhcp stuff. So I ran "sudo dhclient" and lo and behold, it worked.

So how do I get Ubuntu to start DHCP every time I start up?
