I have a Broadband router at home with a Internet connection. When I try to connect my Ubuntu 12.04 on a HP Pavillion laptop, using Automatic(DHCP) via a Ethernet Cable(I have driver issues for Broadcom WiFi adapter) , it does not connect to internet. The top icon keeps showing a message
"Wired Network Disconnected - You are now offline"
But then I select Manual method for the same Wired network and add IP address, Gateway and Subnet mask manually, it connects to Wired network and I can access the internet fine.
What am i missing to get internet access using Automatic DHCP? How do i fix it?
