Okay, so I recently installed Ubuntu on an old laptop and now it won't connect to the internet. When I plug in the Ethernet cord is says connecting and the little icon things moves but after a minute or so it says disconnected and repeats.
Before I installed Ubuntu it worked fine using Win XP so it's not the port or anything and besides, it recognizes the cord is there, it just won't fully connect. I don't have wireless so I;m not sure if that works or not but I can view the networks around my place. Any ideas? I really need to get this working. Thanks.
TL;DR LAN says connecting and then says disconnected.
