I'm sure there will be enough patience in all of us as long as there's some willingness in you as well
It would be helpful, though, if you could describe the problem in MUCH more details.
Let's start with the following:
1. Which distro
2. Wireless or Wired?
3. Are you connected through a router?
4. What's the output of ifconfig and iwconfig?
And some more depending on your answers to the above.
