I have just installed ubuntu onto my laptop and i am having some difficulties with the internet. It tells me that it has connected to the network yet when i try to run firefox or try to update it is unable to do anything. I have tried using wireless and wired but im getting the same results from each. Some help with this issue would be great.

This seems to be an issue with the new Ubuntu. Try initctl start network-manager

Still haven't found a solution to this yet but that gets it running
