    Your nvidia network-device is detected, so that is not the problem. If your networking-app doesn't start, then the problem lies elsewhere. Can you try to launch the application from a terminal? The terminal should give us some reason why it bombs out. Please attach the /var/log/messages file here, too, so we can take a look at the problem in detail.

    Simplest way: Open a file browser (e.g. nautilus) in root/superuser mode and go to the /var/log directory. Then open the "messages" file and save a copy of it to your desktop, then upload it here.

    Ok, done that - but the file is 133 pages! I can't just copy & paste that can I?

    I did try to attach it here, but it won't work for some reason. This link should work though.

    http://www.mooload.com/new/file.php?...0/messages.txt

    I just hope someone can make some sense of it!

    I have checked the file and there are no errors of any kind reported. Your hardware seems to work okay, so let us try to activate the card from a terminal.

    Please launch as superuser

    ifup-eth0

    and post the output here (I hope that ifup-eth0 is used on Ubuntu, too, if not, someone should correct me).

    Ok, this is what I get:

    ifup eth0
    /etc/network/interfaces:29: too few parameters for iface line
    ifup: couldn't read interfaces file "/etc/network/interfaces"
    root@craig-desktop:~#

    No problem, this is what that gives me:

    ifconfig eth0

    root@craig-desktop:~# ifconfig eth0

    Okay, run

    ifconfig eth0 up

    and check if you get a connection. If not, we will have to take a look at your config files and possibly modify them manually. In that case, post the content of your networking configuration (the path might be different as you are using a Debian based system while I am currently on a Fedora box). It should be something similar to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0.

    ok, I tried ifconfig eth0 up nothing seemed to happen, it just went down to the next command line. I tried loading a web page, but I still get the cannot find server message.

    Ihave found this file, at /var/lib/dhcp3

    lease {
    interface "eth0";
    fixed-address 192.168.1.2;
    option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;

    option dhcp-lease-time 3600;
    option dhcp-message-type 5;
    option domain-name-servers 192.168.1.1;
    option dhcp-server-identifier 192.168.1.1;
    renew 3 2006/6/28 06:21:49;
    rebind 3 2006/6/28 06:48:39;
