Ubuntu 9.10 Hi I thought I would give this whirl and run it from the CD only.
Problem no connection to the Internet
I have Googled this but there are not many answers with version 9.10.
I use Fire-fox as my Browser.
OS Vista

Exactly how are you trying to connect to the internet?

Desktop or laptop, wired or wireless connection, make and exact identity of the computers network card/chipset?

Hi Laptop, I am wireless.

I went through Everest and found the following.

Modem BT Voyager 2100

Network Adapter Atheros AR5007EG Wireless

Network Adapter Description
Marvell Yukon 88E8055 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller.

I can wire it if it helps.

What have you done to try to connect to the Internet?

Is your wireless network encrypted?

If so, have you entered the network key into Ubuntu?

Is Ubuntu finding your network, but just not connecting?

First off, try a direct connection. If that doesn't work, leave it plugged in and re-boot the Voyager. Let us know the result.

I have a HP Laptop run the Same CD you have, go to networking to set it up all you need is the Encryption key of your router, Just like windows

Thanks all and yes now I have found my way round Ubutu I did just that I put in the Encryption key in
and made a proxy change as well as network name SSID.

One problem I have is the @ is now on the Key digit 2 and the " on the commer key.

I think you've just got the US keyboard layout selected instead on UK, I think you should be able to find the setting to change it with a little fiddling about, sorry I can't tell you where it is as I have got my Ubuntu running at the moment.

Yes you have to change Language in Ubuntu before it will let you use @ its set to US English
