Have read ALL the threads on the web folk complaining to BT and asking for help

Ubuntu loads OK into my Compaq Pressario.
Bootup CHOICE is EITHER Ubutu 10.10 OR WinXP

Win XP uses BT Home Hub 2.0 regularly and reliably via 2 ft Ethernet cable to Home Hub 2.0

But Ubuntu refuses to talk to Home hub or or

After 2 days solid efort the nearest we got was via IPv4 "Manual" (Autoroute DHCP does nothing)

The message we get is Firefox cannot find server ar start ubuntu.com

Using ping or trace route gives pmtu and !H whether we try firefox or or or sudo dbclient3

We gat the same messages even with typos in these codes.

Hey Esdel,

I don't have an answer for your original problem but I do have a potential workaround. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 virtual using Virtualbox www.Virtualbox.org off my windows box. This might get you past the challenges you are having since it is sitting on-top of your windows installation which is working fine. Thought I would toss that out the seeing that you haven't had any replies. It would take you about 15 minutes to test this out minus the download time.
