So I recently installed Ubuntu on my laptop, and well it's not detecting any wireless connections, and what's even worse is that it won't connect to the internet via Ethernet cable. When I plug in the cable it says it's connected, but when I try using the internet it doesn't work. It says I'm connected though. I have a HP g7-1150uS.

Can you provide some information about how you know it's not connected to the internet, etc? What have you done? – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Aug 26 '11 at 1:35
Well I tried loading a few web pages such as Google, Youtube, and Yahoo. And they all failed to load, it just said No Connection where the webpage should have been. And when I look at the network manager it says connected by etho0. Also I have the 64 bit version of Ubuntu installed, idk if that is relevant or not. – Kevin Aug 26 '11 at 1:46
What web browser are you using? Do you have a proxy? – alexy13 Aug 26 '11 at 2:54
No proxy, and I'm using the default Firefox. Since I have no internet I cannot download any other browsers. the 32 bit version of Ubuntu also has this problem. – Kevin Aug 26 '11 at 3:08

Try this in terminal

sudo pppoeconf

You'll have to type your username and password you're using for internet connection.
