# IP/DNS on kubuntu

 P: 292 You need to set the interface to use DHCP. This is the default setting as far as I know. To set an interface to use DHCP, you'll need to modify your /etc/network/interfaces (I am assuming that eth0 is the interface that you are using. If not, you will need to change that to whatever interface you're on) first make a copy of the file, in case we break something else then add the following code auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp then restart the network manager so that it uses the new settings with the following command service network-manager restart EDIT: Given your other post, I would also suggest that you check with the Univeristy's IT department first. There may be a specific reason why you're not able to connect to your network. They will likely be able to tell you why. Once you have that, it is a lot easier to solve.
