I just built a computer and freshly installed Ubuntu 14.04 on a new hdd but cannot connect to the internet when plugging in an ethernet cable. My computer doesn't have a wireless adapter so wireless isn't an option. I've tried going to "Edit connections" and adding a new Ethernet connection via the IPv4 Settings but haven't had any luck.
ping -c3 192.168.2.1(my router's address) I get:
3 packets transmitted, 3 received, 0% packet loss, time 1999ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.030/0.033/0.037/0.007 ms
I've read somewhere that I need to specify DNS server address such as 188.8.131.52 in different places but it hasn't worked for me.
Can anyone suggest what I should try next?
