i am attempting to share a road runner connection between two computers using a linksys etherfast cable/dsl router model BEFSR41. the two computers i want to use are xpsp3 and ubuntu. linksys provides a book that only pertains to windows. the xp computer worked fine with the router, i had, and was using the internet. the ubuntu computer appeared to have a connection, but i can't be certain because i am totally new to ubuntu. i do not know how to configure ubuntu, much less do so with two computers simultaneously with a router. i am a total ubuntu newbie, but i like what i see. i thought i would be able to figure it out, but obviously it was too much for me.
could someone who has experience connecting ubuntu guide me through the network setup process. thanks in advance.
ejames82 - My system is pretty much the same, XP Pro SP3 and Ubuntu machines connected to the internet (Roadrunner) via a Linskys router. In my case connection worked perfectly "out of the box", no setup required.
