Ubuntu net connection
Well yesterday i decided to partition to dual boot Ubuntu and vista premium. I first reformatted my mothers computer from windows 2000 to Ubuntu from the live cd. i disconnected the ethernet cable out of the back of my PC and put it into hers after ubuntu was installed and got connected immediatly and downloaded all the updates. Then i decided to do mine and now i dual boot vista and ubuntu but recieve no connection on ubuntu.
I tried the following from many help threads:
sudo pppoeconf: followed prompts, it didnt find anything
went into FF and typed about:config
and i changed network..dns.disable.ipv6 from false to true
Then in the terminal i typed: ping -c3 w.ww.google.com and it said Unknown Host
Someone please help, i dont understand why it worked without configuration on my mothers older computer than mine.

To help you out we could use a few more details. What kind of Internet connection do you have and who is your ISP.
Also, run the following commands (as root) and paste the output here.
ifconfig -a route -n cat /etc/resolv.conf
Let us know how you get on,
