I just insatalled Linux Ubuntu onto my machine, and I need help configuring the SBC Yahoo DSL. I'm new to Linux, however, have extensive knowledge on widnows..unfortunatley, ubuntu is nothing like windows (thank god)Any help is appreciated.-akilies
I don't know SBC Yahoo but I suppose that Yahoo is your internet-provider. What have you done so far ? Have you configured your network (system-settings -> network) ?. Is the network-device activated ? Are you behind a router, proxy ... ? Do you have another machine to test you internet-connection ? Please do an ifconfig in a terminal and post the output here. There is another discussing running on this forum (trouble getting network to work). Maybe there are some hints. So, more details please to make us help you.
