[ubuntu-uk] Hooking up a machine running Ubuntu to a Mark 1 BTHomeHub

hello again. I have consulted the manuals online, and it seems all
routes lead me back to the Network Connections panel, in which the only
connection I can see, when the Ethernet cable to the BT HomeHub is
plugged in, is 'Point to Point', and nothing happens when I click it.
When I tried to connect via a USB port, I saw a button for 'Wired
Connection' too, but nothing happened when I clicked that either. There
is also an 'unlock' button, but clicking that makes no difference.
'Enable Networking' is ticked. This is certainly a vital check to make.
I tried typing 'sudo ipconfig' in the terminal and got this:
Link encap: Local Loopback
inet addr: 127.0.0.1 Mask 255.0.0.0
inet6 addr:: 1/128 Scope: Host
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING
(and then some MTU, Metric, RX packets, TX packets, errors, bytes, etc.)
In other words, no interfaces at all.
