I have an Acer Aspire running windows 7 and Ubuntu. I am new to Ubuntu so treat me like i know nothing.
I decided to install ubuntu so I installed it as a separate operating selectable on startup.
When I first got it running it showed up with a little box in the corner that said: "Network: Disconnected-You are now off line" I have tried a number of different things to get it to connect but so far nothing has worked. I can connect to my home network on windows 7 although i cannot connect to other or public networks.
I have an ethernet cable but that doesn't seem to help either. When i click on the network menu or whatever in the top right corner, I only have the options to VPN Connections,
Enable Networking and Edit Connections... I think that the problem has something to do with drivers but I am not sure. Other information: I am trying to connect to the Comcast Arris Router.
