My computer says I am connected to the network, but whenever I open Firefox or try to update the connection it doesn't work, I am new to Ubuntu and just installed it from USB. Also I am on single boot.

I don't see such a wlan in the output of ifconfig, so I am not sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi (?). –  BornToCode Feb 2 at 1:41
