Post more details please? Error messages? You connecting to an NIC or USB from your Cable Modem?

Give us the output of these commands here:

lspci

cat /etc/resolv.conf

ifconfig -a

You still haven't answer and posted the output of what I asked. If your using AOL broadband don't they require you to login?

And I don't care if Windows works.. that don't help us any when using Linux..

Keeble, bring up a console terminal and type them in there.

eg.

Code:
kristijan@localhost:~$ /sbin/ifconfig -a
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:04:61:46:FF:DB
          inet addr:192.168.0.2  Bcast:192.168.0.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:20945 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:23567 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:10471359 (9.9 Mb)  TX bytes:2278400 (2.1 Mb)
          Interrupt:11

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:9449 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:9449 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:748606 (731.0 Kb)  TX bytes:748606 (731.0 Kb)
If your new to Linux and booting straight into GUI, there should be an icon down the left hand side that should bring up a shell. (Assuming your using KDE)
