[ubuntu] new router, no internet

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – So I am having this problem because I don't know anything about routers and I don't know anything about linux. When I first upgraded to 9.10 the network manager wouldn't connect to my DSL so I used the pppoeconf ( I don't know what it does just that it works now). I got a netgear wireless router for my windows netbook and was able to set it up for that wirelessly, but ubuntu doesn't seem to acknowledge the router (wired). I tried running ppoeconf again and it said something about there already being a ppoe process. Could someone please help me out? (HowTos)
