Hi all....

Haven't found the answer to this one by searching.... I just installed ubuntu linux on my vista pc as a dual boot, but couldn't get internet connection....I then booted into vista and have lost the internet connection there too now, only since installing ubuntu..

I'm getting an error message saying the network cable is unplugged - you guys know as well as I do that itīs plugged in.... I'm tearing out what little bit of hair I've got...

Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the network adapter, and am using the same router now via a laptop - so I guess that the problem is somewhere with network card or drivers - although there's no problem showing in device manager...

Thanks in advance for any ideas
