My machine is dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04. A new laptop with Ubuntu 12.04 made me reconfigure my modem. Now I have internet connectivity on Windows and the laptop, but not on Ubuntu. After booting, the wireless connection is established automatically, but I am not able to ping 192.168.1.1.

What I have done so far.

  • Saw to it that the IP addresses on windows and Ubuntu is the same
  • Added nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head
  • sudo resolvconf -u
  • sudo service network-manager restart

Still no connection.

ifconfig -a output:

I checked /etc and found there was no wireless folder. I installed the driver for DWA-125 but still no connectivity.
