http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I am a newbie to UBUNTU. I have ubuntu 9.10 installed in my laptop along with windows xp(dual boot). I would like to connect my laptop to internet in college, When I boot ubuntu and plu-in the network cable, it says eth0 active connected. But when I open firefox and enter a website it cant load the page. In windows it works fine, the settings our college LAN use are given below: Address Type: Manually configured IP Adress: 172.16.39.15 Subnet Mask:255.255.0.0 Default Gateway: DNS servers: 172.16.1.0,172.16.2.0 WINS Server: I tried to establish a new connetion with new profile with the above details changed but I was not able to establish a connection. Help me. Thanks in advance... (HowTos)
