    Hi

    I am having Dell Inpiron 4030. Following are specs

    I am unable to connect to the wired network. We have a 4 port prolink router and there is no error with it. I know because I am using the same cable for my laptop, which I am using for my desktop. I just unplug it from the desktop and plug it to laptop. I am unable to provide any specs from the desktop because there is an error in that computer.

    However, I can give ipconfig/all data from my father's computer, which use another port of the same router.

    My laptop is working perfectly with the Mobile BroadBand. And this is a dual boot computer with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and the cable is fine with Ubuntu.

    Following is the result of ipconfig/all



    How can I make my laptop OK? Please help

    What is listed in Device Manager under Network Adapters?

    What, if any, warnings or errors are anywhere in Device Manager?

    There's a problem with that "Ethernet Controller." That's surely your ethernet adapter; maybe it only has a driver problem. Try installing the latest driver from the PC (or motherboard) manufacturer's web site.

    I believe it is a driver issue too, other wise it cannot work for Ubuntu

    is this is what I need to download?
