Restart Network Error
 
When I restart my network as per the Perfect Setup tutorial, I get the following errors:
Code:

After looking at other posts in the forum, it looks like I'm missing the module for my NIC, but how do I figure out which module I need? I am running Ubuntu Feisty Fawn on a Dell Dimension 4100. I can still access the internet, and everything else seems to work fine.

Thanks.

What's the output of
Code:

ifconfig
?
Do you see the same errors when you reboot the system?
