I am currently running Ubuntu on VMware since my disks only have dynamic partitions and not basic partitioning.

When I am home, I am able to connect to the internet while running Ubuntu. However, when I am in the college, which uses 802.1x network, and after providing the user name and password too, I am unable to connect to the net using Auto Ethernet. Is there some other way to connect to the net in this case?

I guess the question should be: how the host is going to be able to connect to the 802.1x network. What OS are you running on your host? –  MadMike Oct 16 '13 at 7:05
The host runs Windows 7 and it is able to connect to the 802.1x network. However I am unable to connect within Ubuntu though. I do not face this issue when it is not an 802.1x network. –  Prashant Vaidyanathan Oct 16 '13 at 17:20
