I am running lubuntu right now but am facing some trouble. The computer says I am connected to my wireless internet, but when I use firefox or any other browser it won't show the web pages. I have tried changing my DNS and that didn't work. My computer is connected to the internet though a Alfa Networking AWUS036H USB Wireless card.

Honestly this is very frustrating. I also tried xubuntu to the same result.

Can you ping either or both of and google.com? –  drc Dec 5 '13 at 14:31
Yes I can. By the way I switched up to Linux Mint but am experiencing the same problem. Looks like many people have a problem connecting to the internet with the AWUS036H. Maybe we can fix that. –  center60 Dec 5 '13 at 19:52
