I connected a wireless network on my computer, Linux Ubuntu OS but i can't access any webpages for some reason. I have no idea what might be causing this, tho i had Windows with norton protection previously installed on it so i don't know if its still there, cause i didn't remove anything or make backups as i tought it would delete everything automatically lol. If you know what might be causing this, just tell me what to do instead of explaining it so much... Computer-ish cause i don't know shait :monkey: :D

Hit ALT+F2, type gnome-terminal & hit enter.

Then type (in the new application window) ping www.google.com. What does it say ?

Also type ifconfig & what does that say ?

Are you sure that your computer is properly connected to the wireless network ?
 
If you go to System / Network {it'll ask for password} is your wireless card listed?

if it is, then thats where you enter the WEP or WPA key.

If it's not listed, have a look in "Restricted Drivers" and make sure the box for the adapter is ticked.

Gutsy Gibbon seems to have better hardware detection than Fiesty - which are you using?

What Wireless Card is it?

I hit alt+f2, then gnome-terminal as you said. i get a window saying
per@Per-desktop:~$ (my desktop name)
then i write ping www.google.com as you said, i get ping: unknown host www.google.com

then i write ifconfig as you say, all i get is loads of gibberish:
eth0 Link encap: (blah blah)

lo Link encap: (then some adresses and stuff...)

wlan0 Link encap: (something much like the eth0 thingy)

wmaster0 link encap: (again, something like the wlan0 thingy)
-00

and then its per@Per-desktop:~$ again... So, just what is this and what do i do :confused: :(

Well copy/paste what the ifconfig command says, it would really help us to help you.

Well the wireless card seems to be working & receiving an address (192.168.0.2). Can you access the router configuration within Firefox when you type the url 192.168.0.1 ?
