I'll have to do that when I get some more cd's to write to.

You could also use a spare USB drive and make it bootable with something like unetbootin if you wanted to pursue that path.

That's a no go for ubuntu. Can't get a connection, just says network cable is unplugged no matter what I do, same for windows 7.

edit: ... ok, I'm a bit confused so if someone could clear the air. I just found out when I have an ethernet wire going from my laptop to another laptop it connects and recognizes the wire, however, when connected to my router or modem it doesn't see it...anyone have any insight on this?

Sounds like maybe a bad router or router port.

Plug the wire in and then in ubutnu / other linux do (with the wire in the router) a
(you need to be root so either su to the root user or run the commands using sudo)
ifconfig -a

This will show you all the apadters that are installed the one you want will either be em0/1 eth0/1 or p??p?? where the ? can be a number or nothing (sigh dam them changing the number convention)

then
ethtool


This will tell you the link status

If there is a link detected set up the network by

ifconfig /24
route add default gw
echo "nameserver 8.8.8.8" > /etc/resolv.conf



Then try getting onto the network, if it works then feel free to punch the laptop >_<<br />

Alright I'll try that tomorrow, gotta head to bed. But would this in Linux really fix the problem in Windows 7 as well?

nope, it would howver tell you if windows is just being a idiot, the linux stuff if just to troubleshoot the port, if it woks in linux you would then have to go back to testing windows (or just buy the adapter xD haha)
