I'm booting into ubuntu using a LiveUSB on my Windows 8 Sony Vaio laptop. It connects to the wi-fi but nothing works. I checked the proxy settings on the browser. Even when I try to ping google.com from the terminal, nothing happens. It seems like there's no DNS resolution happening. Is this something to do with the Windows UEFI secure boot?
I've installed ubuntu on a number of windows vista and 7 laptops before and have never had this problem.
Any help on this is appreciated.
