edubuntu not connecting to internet

I don’t know if this is the right forum, but I’m having difficulty with a
box running edubuntu server 7.10.

I connected it to my router/switch before installing using the 10/100
ethernet, leaving the 10/100/1000 free for the switch for the thin client

Even though it shows the ip address of the switch ( as the dsl
server it refuses to connect to the internet and so I can’t connect to

I am setting it up to install in a seminary in northern Brazil so it needs
to run in Brazilian Portuguese, but as I don’t speak Portuguese I need to
set up the applications in English first. My dual booting laptop connects
through the same router ok with the same settings so I know it isn’t the isp
causing difficulties.

I’ve tried using dhcp for the port as well as changing it to a static ip
address. I’ve also tried to use the 10/100/1000 port with the same settings
but to no effect.

Has anyone any thoughts as to how I connect it or how I download the apps
from a repository in a sensible form to put on the machine.

(by sensible I mean easy)
