    the problem is i have no idea what i am doing. I just need some instructions on how to set it up. I have my internet set up threw a router and then to my computer with linux on it. If someone can get me detailed instructions that would be awesome.

    As you do in Windows, there are Network Settings in Linux also. There, just enter the proper settings and you are ready to surf the internet. By the way, how are you connecting the router to the PC? Ethernet or USB? Provide more details so that you get the help you require.

    type
    Code:
    sudo network-admin
    This will bring up the network connections box
    you should see your wired network interface
    make sure there is a check in the box next to it, click [properties] put a check in the "enable this connection" box, set the connection to use dhcp, press [ok], wait for the system to finish what its doing, and your done.

    You should be able to connect to the internet as long as your router is set to allow this pc to connect

    If you are NOT able to connect, post the output of
    Code:
    lspci
    and
    Code:
    ifconfig
