So, I just got a new Lenovo ThinkPad T430s and installed Lucid 10.04 on it. The installation went fine but when I logged in there was no connection to the internet even with a cord plugged in. ifconfig shows that I dont have any interfaces other than lo. I think what I need to do is update my kernel version (2.6.32 as of now). If anyone could help me out that would be amazing. Thanks!

Thanks for your help!

Please run lspci -nn from a terminal and post the details of your wireless and ethernet cards. If you installed 12.04 LTS, I suspect both would work out of the box. –  chili555 Nov 28 '12 at 0:21
    
lspci -nn is edited into the original post just let me know if you need anything more. –  user975865 Nov 28 '12 at 2:35
    
Your ethernet device will be covered by e1000e, but not in the older Ubuntu 10.04. Likewise, your wireless device, which didn't exist when 10.04 and its drivers was produced, is covered by iwlwifi. Your Lenovo will easily support 12.04 LTS and 12.10. Both devices will work immediately. I strongly suggest at least 12.04 LTS. –  chili555 Nov 28 '12 at 3:22
