Hey guys,

been having trouble with Ubuntu ever since i replaced Windows on my Netbook.
Anyways, i doesn't appear to have any drivers installed so i cannot connect to the web.

NetworkManager Tool
State: Disconnected

Device: eth0
Type: Wired
Driver: sky2
State: Unavailable
Default: no

Capabilities:
Carrier Detect: yes

Wired Properties Carrier: off

I tried going into Additional Drivers to see if i could enable any as this was a common fix, but no drivers were listed.

I am using a VGA compatibile controller: Intel Corporation N10 Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

Help!!

Thanks,

Crimson.

Open a terminal and type:

sudo modprobe sky2 && sudo depmod -a

See if that brings it up.

Thanks for the reply!

I fixed the problem by connecting the netbook manually to the router, and using the internet to download the required drivers!

Many thanks,

Crimson.
