sorry I am lost..

What Cable setting do you need set.. it should be standard tcp/ip correct..

do you have to enter a username and password?

if you tell me the settings you need, I will send you a file to put in your /etc/network folder..

there is a bug with the ubuntu network manager..

Iwas gonna reply yesterday but thought I was probably off the mark as I have no experience with this but...what I get from the post is you're looking for something like this...or maybe even this since it's somewhere in your part of the world.
