Yes it should , its set to DHCP by default.

Open a terminal and type ifconfig and see if your NIC card is installed ... see if you have an eth0 ,  might be that your card didnt get installed but id be suprised.... but yes it is dhcp by default

I found the terminal and did that  ifconfig - after trying ipconfig a few times :-)

I can ping google !  
So I put in 209.85.143.99 not www.google.ie 
The page appears but when I do a search its gone agian.

I set in opendns setting and will reboot and see what happens.

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

I will re boot now.
