I'm totally new to Linux. I got Ubuntu 7.04 version and installed it, but i can't access the internet. I have a broadband connection with a static IP, I tried doing all the stuff in the help, that I could understand, but nothing worked. I tried the other options in the the network configuration, but it still didn't work. the net is working in vista though, on the same laptop. I heard somewhere that the setting for the linux and vista are different, I asked the customer care of my net service, but didn't knew a thing. I think there is something wrong with the modem (it's a cable internet) I'm also not getting desired speeds in vista, but that's out of the topic.
