I'm new to Ubuntu Linux. I have a Sony Vaio computer and am trying to get it connected to the Internet using an Ethernet cable. I'm able to connect a windows machine to the Internet using this cable, but am not able to figure out how to get my Ubuntu Linux computer to connect. There is something wrong with how my computer is configured. Please help! I use 10.04.
