    Default How do you "ipconfig" in ubuntu?

    In windows you ipconfig to see your network settings. In ubuntu, what are the steps you take to set up your network?

    The tool comparable to Windows's ipconfig in Linux is ifconfig and iwconfig (for wireless extensions). You'd be better off using Network Manager, which is a GUI utility.

    so it's a program I'd hafta download?

    Or ndiswrapper is somewhere in ubuntu already?

    I already had a hard time finding a way to run something :-X

    All I need is something that tells me my ip addy, default gateway, and subnet mask. If I could get those into the system, I could, OMG, connect online.

    Yeah, look for network manager. Otherwise, use ifconfig within a console. If you need help with the commands for ifconfig, use "man ifconfig" and it'll give you the instructions.

    To activate your changes, run ifdown and then ifup. This disables and then enables the network connection. (For instance, if it's a wired connection, you'd go ifdown eth0 and then ifup eth0)

    This is magical.

    I have my system set up for pppoe, it needs a password...

    I can't enter a username and password in linux...

    K I'm going nuts here. What repositories do I add to add pppoe?

    Good help here for a command line approach. You can also "man" those commands to get more info on them.

    If you are talking about tripniva's suggestion on the Network Manager, there isn't anything you need to install for Feisty. It's already there.

    For PPPoE setup, this site has an explanation, but I can't verify how well it will work for you. http://www.ubuntux.org/how-to-instal...lient-rp-pppoe

    You can get the build-essential package from another net connection, or it may be on the installation cd, Im not sure if that applies to Feisty though. But you will need to get that package from another computer, or if you have Windows on the same machine, grab it all from there.

    so I don't need to web get that package if I get it from another pc and then use a thumbdrive to put it on linux?

    Alright... One final question... I know how to add repositories... but I've looked and looked, and for the life of me can't find the two they want me to add >_<

    Wait, I get it now. Nevermind.

    EDIT: The link they show in that guide is dead BTW, they need to update it :X

    Okay, now it's asking for a password, something no one EVER MENTIONED BEFORE.

    Help me before linux goes in the trash.
