I managed to use the "gedit" command to create the file directly in the "network-scripts" folder, but now a new problem: I initially tried to use STATIC IP to put the wired on the same network as the wireless, now if I try to change it back to DHCP option since I've created the file, it hangs and when I restart the system 'STATIC' connection is already selected and it just can't go back to DHCP option. Is there a way to force the system to use DHCP instead of STATIC IP in the command line? I know this is some thing else but I really appreciate all the help you have given me.
Thanks a lot!

Hi. I just tried Meego live usb on the same netbook but it has the same problem, it cannot connect to the web via wired adapter. The live USB is using DHCP connection but still no connection, it cannot even ping the host/router (192.168.0.). It still displays "Destination/Host unreachable". It's a problem of Meego on Acer Aspire One with Atheros, I think (or maybe it's just D255E models). I wonder why this problem? What do you think?....
But I really cannot thank you enough for your time and assistance.
Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!

I don't know much about Meego, it seems not to be a regular distribution, I'd recommend to try another distribution. Ubuntu comes with a "Netbook-Edition", but since I don't know about your experience with Linux (you're no newbie here at LQ) I'd suggest to take a look at Slackware, we have a great community here at LQ, where you will find much help if necessary.

Edit: for netbooks (without a CD-drive) Slackware comes with a USB-installer ftp://sunsite.informatik.rwth-aachen...README_USB.TXT
