Do you use a modem, router....
Is your network card recognized?
If you use a modem, take a look at raspppoe

If you have a regular modem, then it connects to the phone line and connects by calling a phone #. There are also:
cable modem
DSL modem

Please clarify exactly what you have. Also, have you looked at the internet connection settings in Ubuntu?
