I am a student and using Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7 as dual boot.
In my college, we have a proxy server, so all I need to use the internet is set the proxy settings in
Preferences -> Network Proxy and I am set to go.
At my home, I have a broadband connection that requires me to enter my username and password and then its all set on Windows. However, I have no idea how to get it right with Ubuntu.
Once I tried doing that by setting the PPPOE settings and then it worked on Ubuntu too, but when I came back to college, the internet stopped working.
All I remember is that I did some stuff with setting some
Network Manager stuff to
false or something like that, and it continued working with the proxy server too.
Please help me with this, so that I can easily use internet both at home and college too.
