connecting to internet on new hard drive

Forums: 

Hi

I recently installed Ubuntu on a laptop that had "died". Before that I replaced the hard drive thinking that was the problem. It wasn't. So then I decided it must be that the windows operating system had died. I downloaded linux (I think it was Ubuntu 32 bit) and booted my laptop from the linux cd I burned from my desktop. That worked like a charm and is running fine. The only trouble is I can't for the life of me figure out how to get it to connect to the internet. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thank you, H.
