Hi & welcome,

 

can you open a terminal window & then type

su

then enter the root (administrator) password, then type

ifconfig

.. what does it show?

Normally if all is well what should happen is that your router hands out an ip address & you should be good to go just like windows I guess. I take it this isn't happening?
