[ubuntu] Wireless but no Wired Connection

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – On a Toshiba laptop I need both wired and wireless capability. I started by installing Ubuntu 10 but couldn’t get any internet, wired or wireless and the wireless usb mouse didn’t work. So I deleted that and installed Ubuntu 9.10 now I can get wireless internet and the wireless usb mouse works, but no wired connection. Next I read some of the forum threads and tried to using the terminal but commands that use sudo return [sudo] password for t2 when I try to enter my password nothing will type. lspci –nn 02:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Attansic Technology Corp.
