Trying to connect fluxbunto system to internet what am I doing wrong?

Hi, just installed fluxbuntu to my laptop and i'm trying to connect to the internet to download some files i need to play DVDs on it.

I've connected up the network cable from the router to the laptop and opened up the browser but the browser jsut gives me an error saying that the adress could not be found.

Do i have to activate anything or install anything in order for it to connect? I did let it setup the network during the installation just so you know. Please bare in mind i'm a complete n00b to all this so be as patronising as you like.

Thank you.

Ok, after playing with the DNS settings in the networking tab i got it working, sorry for starting a thread that wasn't needed.
