So I've got a HP 6735b laptop.
When I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on it, I didn't have any wireless. After I downloaded the drivers via wired connection everything worked fine.
Now I've upgraded to 12.10 and I can connect to wireless, but it doesn't allow me to browse. I can also connect to wired internet, but that as well doesn't allow me to browse or do any update, install, upgrade.
I checked proxy settings and they are off. What is strange though, is that pinging to google.be gives: "ping: unknown host google.be"
but pinging to 184.108.40.206 works as it should "PING 220.127.116.11 (18.104.22.168) 56(84) bytes of data."
pinging 22.214.171.124 (google DNS) works without dropping a package or whatsoever.
I also tried it on another network and that doesn't work either.
Advice on how to fix?

Thx to maggotbrain and @spruyttej (on twitter) I was able to browse again.
Can you edit the file /etc/resolv.conf, adding the line nameserver 126.96.36.199 to it and browse from your wired connection? – maggotbrain
The file maggotbrain talked about did not exist. So I did:
sudo nano /etc/resolv.conf
and then added
nameserver 188.8.131.52 to the file.
I rebooted and my internet was working. Though I wasn't certain whether this was a fix or a workaround.
on twitter @spruyttej told me to run:
sudo apt-get install resolvconf; sudo dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf;
This rewrote the
I'm now browsing happily. Thx guys!
