I'm new to ubuntu/xubuntu; and hoping to get some help for the networking issue with xubuntu.
Booting from the xubuntu 7.04 Live CD (autoconfigured with DHCP), I cannot get it connected to the network. It cannot ping to any network devices; and no other device can ping it either.
So I installed ubuntu 7.04 server, autoconfigured with DHCP. It was connected to the network; I can access www.yahoo.com
. So far so good.
Then I decided to install xubuntu 7.04 over the ubuntu 7.04 server, using the following commands:
sudo apt-cdrom add [I used the xubuntu 7.04 alternative CD]
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install xubuntu-desktop
The install was successful.
But after I booted into xubuntu, I lost the network connection.
It can only ping itself; not to anywhere else.
Thanks for your help.
