    Exactly like Spencerf said on page 2 of this thread :
    Code:
    sudo dhclient eth0
    or any other interface, depending on which you use.

    Even after a reboot, the module 8139cp still gets loaded after blacklisting it with

    echo 'blacklist 8139cp' >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    and
    Code:
    sed -i -e 's/\(.*8139cp\)/# \1/' /etc/modprobe.d/aliases
    ?
    Hi, this is ther person a12ctic has been helping the whole time. We reinstalled Ubuntu, and I went through and redid all the steps you posted (minus the line about the hotplug folder, since it doesnt exist), and after a reboot I still cant connect to the internet, and when I ping the router I still get "network is unreachable". Sorry this response is a bit delayed, I really appreciate your help so far, tell me whatever info you need and I'll find it.
