I currently have Ubuntu 14.04 LTS installed on my laptop. The WiFi gets connected without any problem but when I try to get internet access it becomes impossible. It works fine with a wireless usb toggle connection. Internal wireless module doesn't work properly

What can I do to fix this? My laptop is Toshiba satellite A500

Which device is not working? Both require firmware, did you install it? What does dmesg show? –  bain Jun 3 '14 at 12:06

I've only been able to get a wired connection with 14.04 myself, though it's possible you might be able to find an application on Software Center that may help you find what you're looking for.
