    Hello,
    did you try:
    Code:
    # sudo ifconfig ath0/wlan0 up
    (dont know exactly if it is ath0, or wlan0, try both )
    Hope that works!

    Hmmm... I thought "Fast Ethernet" referred strictly to wired connections.

    Anyway, step one, you gotta run the following command:

    Code:
    sudo ifconfig -a
    This will give you a list of all the currently recognised network interfaces on your computer.

    If your network card isn't listed, then there's two possible problems:

    1) Your hardware's broken. If you network card works fine in MS-Windows then you can be about 95% sure that you don't have a hardware problem.

    2) You haven't got the appropriate drivers loaded for your network card. Do a web search for "ubuntu [name of your network card]".

    However If your network card is listed, then follow this guide to get it going:
