Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've just installed Xubuntu on my computer. It's all OK, but I have a problem with the internet connection: when I boot the PC and I login into Xubuntu it says to me "Cable connection disconnected" or "No cable connection".

After a while (like 40 seconds) it connects to the internet and then I'm able to surf the net.

I was wondering: why it takes so long to establish a connection? I had no problems of this kind on Windows or other distributions.


here are some outputs: http://pastebin.com/8nWFC5BV

may be you are using dhcp on ubuntu and manual IP configuration on windows. DHCP usually takes longer. –  vivek Oct 27 '12 at 9:21
You can provide some more info. Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and paste these commands inside cat /etc/network/interfaces & lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net & lsmod & cat /etc/resolv.conf . Edit your question and paste the results. –  NikTh Oct 27 '12 at 9:46
