How do I set a machine IP in Ubunto?

Totally new to Ubunto. Install went well. Cannot connect to my laptop's wireless card. Ifconfig shows IP as 127.0.0.1. My router is set to 192.168.1.1. How do I set Ubunto's IP to 192.168.1.100? Thanks.

I can only assume you want to set a static IP on your Ubuntu machine. If this is the case, http://textsnippets.com/posts/show/319 will be the website you're looking for.

/etc/network/interfaces is the file to vi..

Yes, you can edit that file in vi if you choose to; if you wanted to use another program, you could just as easily use

programname /etc/network/interfaces

For example, if I liked using Kate (Yes, I'm using KDE)

kate /etc/network/interfaces

Opens up the file that needs to be edited in kate.

Does your network card associate with access point?
Does access point offer DHCP service?
Do you use GUI or command line?

What the hell is Ubunto?


Please post ouput of "uname -a" from your system before proceeding further.
