login to the server from the console, start a terminal and from command line run

ifconfig -a

this should give you interfaces and their ip addresses.

Also, to be sure that SSH server is installed on Ubuntu, run the following command :

apt-get install ssh

Do you know if the network cable is good?
Are you using static or dhcp addresses?

Your not seeing the network card can you follow the first 3 steps of the link I posted and post the results, I want to make sure that the hardware is being seen and it is setup for dhcp..

Your network card is not being plumbed so it's probably not set up for dhcp.

nzrubinAuthor Commented:
i asked about this computer and figured that it was former coworkers one and he has no idea about whether it ever worked in the network.
is there any way to check or i need to put another network card for checking?

jgiordanoCommented:
Recent versions of ubuntu are pretty good about identifying and having drivers for the firmware. How old is the hardware? Have you tried to open the box and re-seat the card? Do you have another network card or usb network card you could use?
