check my post in Wired Internet doesn't work on ubuntu 12.04

If you have set up a static IP addressing you may have to look up the DNS Server that you set up in the interfaces conf, but if you left it as dynamic (DHCP) then check the resolv config (don't modify the resolv.conf as your settings will not me maintained. Modify the BASE file as my suggestion at the link above.
