You said, it's through a hub but you didn't say what IP scheme your network use.....I brout the machine home and connected to the internet and my machine isnt getting an IP at home Iam using cable internett running through a hub.
There can be many. If it's DHCP, then you shouldn't have to do anything.. if it's static IP, then you need to tell your LInux box to use static IP.
I'm using the school lab and they are closed so someone please fill in the detailed how to do that for me? Thanks.
