I have a Asus Eee pc 1000HE mini laptop with 12.04 Ubuntu installed dual booted with xp.

When I plug the LAN cable is it connects fine, I can also reach the router. But I cannot connect to any website. Now I thought it was a problem with the router but here is the strange part: if I connect a other laptop to the same cable it works fine. And if I boot on on the Eee pc from a Live USB the Internet works as well!

If nothing comes up I will try to fix it by reinstalling Ubuntu, but I would prefer if I can solve this in a less drastic way.

edit: lspci -v gives this output about ethernet controllers and network controllers:

Can you add the Ethernet controller's make and model? Run lspci -v and add the bits referencing to Ethernet controller and Network controller. –  Wilf Nov 26 '13 at 17:33
