I have installed 13.04 (64bit) and after not having any wired internet, did a fresh install with 12.04 (64bit). The machine was previously running Windows 7 with wired connection working fine. A wierd issue is that normal Google searches (even images!) work from Firefox. Clicking on any links fails, however.
I cannot paste terminal outputs as I only have wired access from the Ubuntu machine.
uname -r shows that the kernel is:
ifconfig shows that
eth0 has an inet address (126.96.36.199)
188.8.131.52 gives the following result:
PING www.google.com (184.108.40.206) 56(84) bytes of data
4 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 3023ms
Pinging the router is successful:
4 packets transmitted, 4 received, 0% packet loss, time 3000ms
dmesg gives the following output for eth0:
tg3 0000:02:00.0 eth0: Link is up at 100 Mbps, full duplex
tg3 0000:02:00.0 eth0: Flow control is off for TX and off for RX
Let me know if I need to provide more information.

mtu to 1472 and restarting the network did not have any effect
Here is the output for

Ok so apparently I need to go through a proxy server. I have followed instructions given here:
This has been successful in enabling fullinternet access. I have set proxies following a few instructions here.
Thank you for the help!
