I am new to Ubuntu. During installation of software from Ubuntu software center it shows that there is no internet connection whereas I can access to any website. Using terminal the same problem appears. I installed Ubuntu 12.04 by windows installer. How can I solve the problem?

Change the servers for downloading updates in the software sources to Main server and try if this fixes it.

enter image description here

You get here by going to the top left with your cursor (go to the text software sources) and choose edit, prefences.

After opening the Software Sources Window select the "Download From" option and the last option let's you select a new server. You can choose to do a automatic "best server for you" method which checks which server is closer to you or a manual selection where you can select a server from a list.
