Just installed a wireless USB driver using ndiswrapper. The icon and menu options "says" I'm connected; meaning that I'm able to disconnect, connect, etc., but Firefox is not connecting to the internet. One thing I did change was that for some strange reason Firefox appears to have been set by default to be in "work offline" mode; which well, is an interesting default.
Do I need to enable something; the http port for example?
If not, how do I isolate the source of the issue? For example, attempt to do a "ping google.com" from the terminal, but appears Ubuntu didn't like that syntax.
Thanks, and if you have any questions, just let me know!
