[xubuntu] Xubuntu 10.10 internet doesn't work

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I've recently installed Xubuntu 10.10 onto my Dell Inspiron Mini (I think 1011), and found that my internet flat out doesn't work, wired or wireless. When I connect the netbook to an ethernet wire, it says I am connected, but fails to load any pages or connect to the internet for any purpose (updater, drivers, etc.). Additionally, my wireless does not work, and in the panel under wireless networks it says "device not ready (firmware missing)". I am sure this post is missing vital information that would help fix my problem, so if anyone would be so kind as to tell me what I need to p (HowTos)
