Unable to connect to Internet
I have been using Windows XP, and last month i had Linux Mint installed. I was connecting to the internet with an external modem and everything was running fine, until while experimenting with the settings,i bust the whole thing. What i did was to do a "right click" on the 'computer icon' at the bottom right-hand corner to disconnect and from that day i am unable to connect from Linux, but i can still do it under Windows.I had done the same thing under Windows but after going to the 'control panel/network settings' i managed to get the thing working.I went to the 'control panel' in Linux, and under 'network ' i get the message: "Auto eth0 => never". i have been trying to 'edit' the 'settings' but to no avail. i cannot 'apply' any setings i want.anyone can help?

I'm a bit of gnubie myself but i do know that auto etho is an ethernet connection and not a modem connection. so any seetings changes you make to it wouldn't affect an external modem. have tried the sudo lshw C-networks to see what network hardware your machine is picking up?
