I've recently tried many different distros of Linux. Having tried and liked a live version of Ubuntu 6.06, and as everything worked well, (sound, broadband internet etc.) I decided to install it.

Following the (smooth) installation I'm now unable to get online. I'm using a Davicom 9102/A PCI ethernet adapter and an Origo adsl router. My isp (Metronet) tells me my router is working fine and Ubuntu tells me the network card is up and running too. The two don't seem to talk to each other as they did with the 'live' version. All works well when I boot to Windows xp and the live version of Ubuntu still gets me online too!

Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

What are the IP addresses of the computer and router? Can you ping the router from the computer? (Ona console type: "ping ip.of.the.router")

Make sure that the IP of the router is set as the "gateway" on the computer.

Many thanks for your reply. I'm not sure what the ip's of the computer and router are - the 'properties' box is blank apart from saying 'DHCP'. When I use the live version of Ubuntu and am able to connect I get these:

DNS - 10.0.0.2
Default gateway - 10.0.0.4
Subnet mask - 255.0.0.0

and in a different menu:

localhost - 127.0.0.1

I get replies when I ping 127.0.0.1 but 'unreachable' from 10.0.0.2 and 10.0.0.4 from the installed version.

These three addresses all get replies when I ping them from the command line in Windows xp.
