Question What is the easies Linux Distribution to connect to internet?

Hi everyone. I use modem(ethernet adaptor and realtek driver) but after installing ubuntu, I had no chance of installing internet so I decided to look for another linux distribution. Sorry for bothering you, but what do you think is the easiest linux distribution to connect to internet?

Why don't you tell us a bit more about how you usually connect to the net so that we might have a starting point.
