connecting net in ubuntu

Guys somebody reply to this as clear as possible.
I started usin ubuntu 10.4 only a week ago. I use reliance MG880+ for internet connection. The problem is that the modem sometimes connects and most of the times( usually when i put the system in hibernation and switch it back on or something like that) it doesn't. What should i do? I'm completely new to linux, so explain in layman's words. Thank u in advance.

Is this a wireless network connection?

In the past, using windows, I have seen wireless network cards fail to connect following hibernation of a machine.

The solution in my instance was to disable and then re-enable the network interface.

You could try something similar by using ifconfig to take the interface down and then bring it back up. Use the -a flag to show all interfaces so that you can get the device id for your network interface.

ifconfig -a
ifconfig {device} down
ifconfig {device} up
