Hi, thank you very much.
that would be very kind of you. 

this is what the problem im having with connecting ethernet.

the LAN light is flashing neither in NIC port no in the router.
i checked the router with several cables but to no avail. (in windows
and ubuntu)
the current adsl connection is working on other computers (with another
router). but in my router the adsl light is keep blinking (not flashing)
but my current router is working perfectly with my friends machine with
the same cables i checked with my machine.

in network manager i can see the following:
1) Wired Nertwork (Biostar Microtech Int'l RTL810E/RTL8102E PCI Express
Fast Ethernet controller) - disconnected
2) Wired Network (Sony Ericsson Mobile AB Sony Ericsson K530)
3) Mobile Broadband -connected

the (2) and (3) are a of my mobile phone which i use to connect through
mobile broadband. though i have never used the (2).

as for the (1) no radio button is appearing to select it.

please feel free to ask if i should give more information.

thank you very much.

PS: if i connect the USB cable to router (even without the drivers
installed) i can see that the USB light is flashing in the router.
