How do I get the internet to work on my IBM powerbook laptop?


I just installed Ubuntu and after installing it I connected the laptop to my net connection via the onboard ethernet and it's not working at all. Do you think it didn't install my onboard ethernet or something?


*The topic should say Thinkpad lol.

I'm not sure that you got to System>Administration>Networking and configured your network interface settings, ie IP address, gateway, DNS etc. Try doing this and you'll most def get thro'.

When I go there it doesn't list my Ethernet card as being installed.
