Can't connect to a network after installation of Rails in Ubuntu.

After I installed Ruby and Rails with the installation guide made by Treehouse. I cannot connect to a network anymore even I connect it directly using LAN cables.

The thing is I need to do some stuff for ubuntu to read my wlan card. just like this https://github.com/tobiasBora/MT7630E_3.16

but after the installation, I cannot even run the make compile in my terminal.

Any suggestion to resolve this? or should I need to reformat my Ubuntu.

Thanks! :)

is the network interface up? i dont know why but the VMs i use in my uni course always have the interface down so we need to manually turn them on.

in a console type

ifup eth0

if = interface

up = turns it on

eth0 = the interface you want to turn on it's normally eth0

by using lshw -c network it's down, but as I have said to the additional info about the question. I have used the one in the github to make it work. But now I doesn't work for an unknown reason :(

Ah your having driver issues? sorry cant help you there, only know a little about linux commands and not doing the ruby course.

i think your best place for driver help is http://askubuntu.com/ driver issues are well known and theres more than likely some one who has the same issue as you.

sorry i can help any more than the ifup eth0 command
