"As long as the cable modem pushes out a DHCP address, Ubuntu should pick up everything by default. ifconfig should show you what ethernet devices are on the system.

Try ifconfig -a and report back what it provides as output.

You'll also want to check /etc/network/interfaces. It should look something like this if you're using DHCP:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp"
