Okay so I recently installed Ubuntu 12.4 LTS on my old laptop and I can't connect to the internet. When I plug the ethernet cord in the icon starts it's animation and says connecting for about 30 seconds then says disconnected and repeats. I'm wondering how I can fix this or even how I can download and install updates via flashdrive? I basically just want the updates/plugins to play media such as music and video. So yeah, is there a way I can download the plugins/updates on my windows machine and copy them to my Ubuntu machine via flashdrive? Thanks.
