Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I did a complete wipe of my windows 8 and replaced it with Ubuntu (ASUS V500CA-BB31T). When I boot into Ubuntu none of the networking works, not even the Ethernet cable is recognized.

When installing, I followed this guide mostly.

This was the main step I followed to get Ubuntu installed:

  1. If you just press install option, installation will hang. You need to edit the installation command:
    • Press 'e' to enter on edit mode.
    • Replace where it says 'quiet splash' with 'nomodeset'
    • Press Ctrl-X to boot and install.

I haven't used the new installation much and would be fine with reinstalling.
