The IT guy at my mom's office had an old computer that he could give me to make a server out of. I took it and installed Ubuntu Server 12.04.1 LTS on it. However, I have no connection to the internet and I can't figure out how to connect. The preferred end result would be a wireless connection, but for now I'd be happy with any connection, wireless or otherwise.
sudo apt-get update and that returned a whole list of
W: Failed to fetch [some arbitrary website]
I read up on a few articles and took this error to mean that I am not connected to the internet. How do I connect?
NOTE: Although I have been using servers/computers/etc. for a while, I am extremely new to Ubuntu. (I have only been using it for 1 day.)
If anyone knows how to fix this or even has a pointer in the right direction, I would be very grateful.
