That depends on the modem and router settings. If you are using cable modem (a box connected to the cable from your internet service provider) without a router, you will need to set your computer to get a IP address automatically and restart the modem. Then you can renew the IP address if necessary. If you are using a router (another box) connected with the modem, then you might want to connect to the router by using the IP address on the same subnet as the internal interface of the router and enable DHCP. Then you can restart the modem and get an IP address for the router (usually you can see a button to click for that on the management page of your router after you open that in your browser, check the manual of your router about details). After that you can reconfigure your computer to use dynamic IP address and then renew IP address or restart. Please don't hesitate to post if you have questions.

I am having trouble connecting to the internet with my other computer I think it has to do with the Ethernet card..........

Depends somewhat on which operating system you have installed. Win98 probably won't connect. WinXP might connect. Ubuntu 10.06 (free) is a good bet for using the internet.

How can I connect my alltel internet card to my wii system

Unfortunately you cannot insert your USB modem into your Wii and have it recognized. Your Wii does not have the ability to operate plug and play devices in the way that your lap top does. The Wii needs to be hooked up to a LAN (local area network) via a wireless G connection from a wireless router or wireless capable modem, or hard wired to a modem or router with an ethernet cable (looks like a big phone wire).

There is a way to share your lap tops internet connection using an ethernet switch (depending on your operating system). If this is an option that you wish to explore and you have the necessary hardware, re-post asking how to set up a shared internet connection using a computer as a residential gateway. Depending on your operating system this can be done quite easily. You will need a computer with an internet connection (which you have), a 10/100 Ethernet switch, and two Ethernet cables. A switch is relatively inexpensive and the wires are as well.

I hope that this helps you with your problem.

Good Luck!

Hvae you tried setting tie network manually in Ubuntu?
Network Manager is used in many sections of this guide - you can find it:
  1. In SystemAdministrationNetwork
  2. In the Notification Area. Its icon resembles two computer screens on top of each other, or a wireless signal indicator if you are connected to a wireless network.
Connecting using Wireless in Network Manager Network Manager (SystemAdministrationNetwork) supports Roaming mode. This allows you to connect to any available wireless network in range.
  1. In the Taskbar click the Network Manager icon.
  2. Select your wireless network from the list.
  3. Enter your Network Key.
  4. Click Connect.
Connecting to a hidden network
  1. Left click the Network Manager icon in the system tray.
  2. ClickConnect to Hidden Wireless Network
  3. In the network name text box enter the ESSID you are connecting to.
  4. Select the type of security used from the drop down list.
  5. Click Connect.
This section is about setting up an ADSL Internet connection using an ethernet PPPoE modem.
You will require a subscription with an Internet Service Provider, and an installed, functional Internet connection. Most modems have a light which will be lit if it is currently connected to the Internet. You will also need your username and password for the Internet account.
Setting up PPPoE To set up the modem:
  1. Open a terminal (ApplicationsAccessoriesTerminal)
  2. In the terminal, type
    sudo pppoeconf
  3. A text-based menu program will guide you through the following steps:
    1. Confirm that your Ethernet card is detected.
    2. Enter your username.
    3. Enter your password.
    4. If you already have a PPPoE Connection configured, you will be asked if it may be modified.
    5. Popular options: you are asked if you want the “noauth” and “defaultroute” options and to remove “nodetach”. Choose Yes.
    6. Use peer DNS - choose Yes.
    7. Limited MSS problem - choose Yes.
    8. When you are asked if you want to connect at start up, you will probably want to say yes.
    9. Finally you are asked if you want to establish the connection immediately.
  4. Once you have finished these steps, your connection should be working.
Starting the connection To start your ADSL connection on demand, in a terminal (ApplicationsAccessoriesTerminal) type:
sudo pon dsl-provider Stopping the connection To stop your ADSL connection, in a terminal (ApplicationsAccessoriesTerminal) type:
sudo poff dsl-provider Hope this helps.If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Connecting to internet

what do you mean by ubuntu's internet connection settings?

You need to enter your own.

However, you can check the settings, and change them through the following:

go to the terminal and do:

sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces

enter your password

and see/change your settings as you wish.

You need to be familiar with vi though, you can use any other editor of your choice.

You can also do this in the GUI easier but it's more fun to do it through CLI.

Please let me know.

How to protect my system without any virus threats.....?

  • If your are not using the internet very often, Then the only source of infection is through use of infected files from CD/DVD/FLOPPY/Pen Drives. So its always a best practice to scan the media before using the files on them.
  • Also whenever you do connect to the internet, you need to update the antivirus.
  • If you have no option to connect to the internet, most anti virus providers offer patches. Which can be downloaded from a cybercafe and then updated in your system.
Rate the solution if it helps !
