I'm sorry I keep forgetting most people are using wireless :)
You would most likely need the network manager for that then, kinda makes
those things easy.
I don't know much to do in that case other then what josh suggested.
Josh will be more help, as he knows more then I do anyway :)

I hope you get it solved and this doesn't tarnish your view on Ubuntu at
all, its a great system (btw, i played with vector linux awhile back also
and loved it)
Stick with it and I doubt you will be disappointed, and as you can see the
community will back you up when ever possible.
