http://askubuntu.com – I did a first time install of Ubuntu 11.10 using Wubi and the ethernet connection on my laptop. (so I know that the ethernet interface is working and connected correctly). I finished the install and booted up Ubuntu. The wireless connection works find, but I am not able to get the wired connection to work. Here is the output of ifconfig for eth0: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:08:0d:0e:88:c3 inet6 addr: fe80::208:dff:fe0e:88c3/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:391 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 (HowTos)
