I just cretaed a dual boot Windows/Ubuntu. My Wifi works properly in windows, but it does not let me go on the Internet when in Ubuntu. DHCP seems to work since I apparently received a 192.168.1.3 address that btw is the only one I can ping. I can neither ping the router address (that is 192.168.1.1.) I had a look at some config file, and I can see the wlan with iwconfig, but in the /etc/network/interfaces file there is nothing but
auto lo iface lo inet loopback
It seems strange to me (but yes, maybe is because I'm just a developer ) not seeing anything about wlan0.
What can be the problem?
wifi card adater is D-LINK N 150 Micro USB Adaper DWA 121
Ubuntu version 12.04 LTS
Chip on the pen is RTL8188
EDIT as per @innerand suugestion i downloaded from another computer the backport, but trying to install I've got a dependency not found:
