I don't have Virtualbox and I'm not really good with codes and stuff, but I updated my machine from 12.04 to 12.10 and now the internet is not working. The only message I got was 'nautilus has not started' when I open chrome:
Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): unable to resolve the server's DNS address.
sudo apt-get install dnsmasq but it came back with the following:
E:unable to locate package dnsmasg.

I've also deleted the wired connection then added it back to all default settings, but am still having no joy whatsoever.
I am on a wired connection.
I have rebooted computer and modem.
I have also tried google DNS 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52
Please help :)
