I am running an HP laptop with dual boot system, Ubuntu 13.04 and Win XP. My WIFI card is an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG. I had a temp assignment in Hungary and I am using a dlink DAP-1350 wireless router in the Router Mode.

In Windows the wireless router works perfectly without and problems. When I am using Ubuntu the system shows the wireless router connected. But when I launch any browser I get error "Server Not Found", and I can't get internet access.

I read another question here titled "internet says it is connected but it doesn't work", the person was asked to run a ping and an ifconfig, which I have run these and I am posting them here in the hope that they will help someone to figure out what is going on and get my browsers working. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help this Ubuntu novice.

Here is the screen shot Ubuntu wireless network connection:

As for ping the above is what was returned when I ran it. I am a novice so please forgive me if I don't explain as well as I should.

I ran route -n and the following was returned:

route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface         UG    0      0        0 wlan0     U     1000   0        0 wlan0   U     9      0        0 wlan0

I will post the result of your question shortly.

Here are the results of ping

So there's no output when you run ping What is the output of route -n? And do you have any idea what is the IP of your router? And by the way, about that "reputation" thing, read this. –  Alaa Ali Aug 29 '13 at 5:20
You can post your image on other site (imgur.com for example), and insert the link here. –  Radu Rădeanu Aug 29 '13 at 5:21
What results do get from ping (the default route and DNS server in your configuration)? –  guntbert Aug 30 '13 at 17:56
For further inspection: it looks like a misconfiguration of the router/DNS Server. –  guntbert Aug 31 '13 at 18:17
Is there any suggestions on how to configure them correctly, I am a novice and would need detailed instructions and/or troubleshooting steps. Thanks in advance!!! Would the window configuration (which was automatic as was the Ubuntu configuration) work fine and the Ubuntu not work? –  user188293 Sep 1 '13 at 12:53
