Bug Description

Hello everyone and thanks for reading my bug!

It's a pretty simple one. I accidentally had my ethernet cable unplugged when the Ubuntu 12.04 liveCD was loading up, so when the installer ran, it said that I did not have an internet connection and could not install updates with the install. I realized my mistake and plugged it back in. Ubuntu notified me that I was now connected to the internet, but the installed still didn't recognize it. I went back a page, then forward, but to no avail. I restarted the computer with the liveCD in and the ethernet cable plugged in and everything worked out great from there. A small problem, but someone shouldn't have to restart their computer just because they have the cable unhooked at the start of the install.

Thanks again reading my bug and helping to make the best OS on earth a little better!
