This is a new install of Ubuntu. I ran 12.04 from a usb drive for a day or so, and had no issues outside of some latency that is more due to the lack of RAM on my aspire one D255e than to OS. I had wireless running with no issue, and wired tested as working also.
I ran the installer and removed Windows . Now the wireless network is detected but ethernet is not, and neither gets a connection. I disabled proprietary drivers and rebooted, re-enabled the driver, and still neither.
I know nothing of Ubuntu yet! What can I do?
