How to configure the router – KAISERVIGNESH Jul 10 '12 at 9:04
do you know what brand and model router you have? and are you plugging it into an internet-receiving connection (from the ISP) – Thomas Ward Jul 10 '12 at 17:14
you have to enter the ip of ur router to cofigure mostly and the uname and passwd both are genereally admin...after that,tou need to search on net how to configure your specific router(specific model no) – Nirmik Jul 10 '12 at 17:29
Could you run the command ifconfig in a terminal and post the output here. That may help see what is wrong. – Jazz Jul 26 '12 at 5:17

When you try to load a page in your web browser does it say something like "Server Not Found"? If so, try this command in the terminal:

sudo dhclient

It will ask for your password. Enter that then press enter.

Then reopen your web browser and try again. If that doesn't work sorry, that's all I know of.
