[ubuntu] Ethernet wired but no connection

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi there, I've been trying desperately to network my Acer Revo 3600 with ubuntu Karmic Koala to network my my mac. Wireless works absolutely fine, i've set up smb & afp shares and both work. But I need the wired connection to work as transferring large files, or streaming HD content over wireless is incredibly slow. I've bought some Cat 6 cable and right now my mac is wired directly into the ethernet port on the Revo but the two are not talking to each other, as soon as I switch off wireless on my mac I loose the connection with the Revo even though the two are directly connected? Is there anything I need to configure in Ubuntu to get the connection to work? Thanks for any help. (HowTos)
