Hi Russell

What you need to do is this

Go to the KMenu

Open it and go to the System Menu

In that you will find a subfolder called Start-Stop Network

Go in to that menu and click on the Start Network Icon, you will get a popup
asking for the root password, enter it and click Ok. You should get a popup
telling you that you have connected to the network and what IP Address you
are given.

Hope that helps
