At it again,trouble seems to follow me!!
After Installing Sus.10.2 ,i attempted to make an Internet connection and here is what happen's, would appreciate suggestions!!

1. When pressing shift and @, It types this ",so thinking it could be my Key board,i connected the board i use on 2nd computer,only to have the same thing happen!! I thought well i wonder what will happen if i press shift and the inverted commas key? I did this and it typed @. Unfortunately i couldn't get it to repeat
this so could'nt make connection to provider!! The Installation DVD is new and just purchased from a Newzealand GNU/Linux Distrib'uter. Could it be possibly virus infected?

Your region is incorrect for your keyboard. Go into keyboard settings and tell it where your keyboard is set up for. ie: UK and US keyboards have the @ and " symbols switched. If you bring up a word document, you'll find a handfull of more differences, like the 3 key has the symbol as well (in the case of US vs UK keyboards). Here's a quick example:

US layout for QWERTY Keyboards:
