    Hello!
    I am new to ubuntu. I have installed vista/ubuntu Dapper (dual boot) on my PC. On vista i am using Belkin router(Wireless G Router # F5D7230-4) with a speedstream modem and it is working perfectly fine. Now i want to use this with ubuntu also but i don't know from where to start or how to configure it with ubuntu. If any body knows, then I'll be great full.

    You don't have to do anything to the router to run it with any version of Linux. All you have to worry about is the NIC on your machine, the model number you left out of the post. :)

    These days Linux has drivers for most of the NICs out there. If you are using a wireless interface, that might require some tunning.

    Thanx for the quick reply, I don't have NIC in my PC. But this network driver (Intel(r) 82566DC Gigabit platform LAN connect) is installed.

    at the terminal

    >ifconfig

    This will dispaly the TCP settings for installed interfaces.

    Actually, we need to see the result of an IPCONFIG /ALL

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

    Hi, i execute ifconfig/iwconfig on ubuntu and here are the results:

    ifconfig
    lo Link encap:Local Loopback
    inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
    inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
    UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
    RX packets:5 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:5 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
    RX bytes:272 (272.0 b) TX bytes:272 (272.0 b)

    Sorry, my Windows hat was on. :D

    You actually need to configure something with the NIC. The router should work as is. If you start screwing around with the router, you'll only make things worse.
