I'm really new. Just bought dell mini 9 with ubuntu 8.0.4. How do I check the network connection and DNS settings. I have a Airlink router (680w). I've called Dell. They say call Ubuntu. Ubuntu says call Airlink. Airlink can't spell Ubuntu and have no idea what I'm talking about. Am up to about 30 hrs trying and am getting frustrated. I know it's something simple, but what ............?
I really want to use this thing, but it's worthless as is. Any help is reallllly appreciated.

Hi

I'm in a similar position to Jim2 , I have got a SW-E700 - its a small net book short of thing.

I'm trying to connect to my home wireless network , the encryption is WEP , I've set the network settings as , mode - managed , key state - open , WLAN is set to dhcp with auto DNS .

The Wireless Lan "sees" my network and it connects fine - goes to aquireing IP address but I end up with IP address invalid ( although still connected - apparently ).
Needless to say , if I try the browser I can't connect to anything , thats Bon Echo if it helps.

I haven't done 30hrs but its getting a bit anoying!

Any help would be great !

Cheers
