I've installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Server in my machine on a separate hard drive alonside my Windows 7 installation. The Windows OS has full network connectivity and internet access through the Ethernet, but the Ubuntu installation does not.
I have a hunch that this could be because my router which sees 2 different computers with the same MAC address, and the DHCP is not working. How do I assign the machine a common static IP so that both partitions can use my network? I am new to Ubuntu and I couldn't figure out which file to edit so that I can assign the static IP.
