Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! We need more hardware information to help you, can you look at this question and then edit your question adding the information? – Jorge Castro Apr 28 '12 at 18:39

To setup a wired connection in Ubuntu 11.04 or 11.10 or 12.04, click "Dash Home". Type Network Connections. Open the Network Connections window. You will see five tabs, between then "wired" is the first one. Click "Add" to setup a new wired connection. Provide the connection name (optional). Click "Save" if it is a DHCP connection. If your connection is static, then click on "IPv4 settings" tab. Fill up Address, Netmask, Gateway and DNS Server field and click "Save". Hope you can now enjoy your connection.

Can you tell me please, what type of connection are you using? Like Static, DHCP or DSL. – Fahim al Islam Apr 28 '12 at 19:38

I am having issues also and I have dhcp. Also, I want to note this computer was installed at my brother's house so there's a likelihood he has static connection
