Right after installing Ubuntu 11.10 using the wubi.exe file, I tried to surf the web in Ubuntu. My wireless connection is found without problem, but firefox doesn't manage to load any pages. Can somebody help me out? Please let me know which results of commands in the terminal I have to post.

  2. Choose the WiFi you use (exp.HOME 1) go to EDIT CONNECTION

  3. Choose wireless, take manual option , click ADD fill the IP you give to you post (exp, valid with ENTER; give mask (, valid, give gateway of your router(exp.

  4. now add the DNS ( open CONNECTION INFORMATION to see the DNS is available.)

I'd like to know why the WiFi adapters don't toll the good GATEWAY.
