Internet troubles.
#1
When I plug my ethernet cable into the computer, Ubuntu doesn't recognize it? Why might this be? My computer recognized it when I used Windows.

Linux is not Windows.
Therefore, Linux drivers are not Windows drivers.

Ubuntu just may not have support for your ethernet port. Look online for third party drivers.

What brand and model do you have?

Yes, what NIC are you using? And what version of Ubuntu?

Try either:

Code:
dhcpcd eth0

or

Code:
dhclient eth0

Although, I have no idea how Ubuntu works, that may do it.

You may also be able to edit /etc/rc.conf, your interface may just not be listed there.
