I have a HP 110-mini laptop dual booting Ubuntu 13.10 and Windows 7. I am trying to build LFS. But recently, my internet access just went off. It says I am connected to the wifi and I can access the internet with other devices, I can also access internet on the same laptop when I am booted into windows 7. Only when am on UBuntu every browser says server can't be found. Can you please help me?

  • try dropping in sudo dhclient wlan0 and follow it with ping -c 3 www.google.com.. If that works, you need to go into network settings (click on the cog in the top right>system settings>Network>wireless>click on the orange arrow associated to your network>settings>ipv4/ipv6 settings and turn on dhcp. – Miphix Sep 14 '14 at 2:14

Maybe it is a proxy related problem. When I shutdown OS with proxy software on, I can't access the Internet the next time when boot into this OS. In this case, open proxy software again may solve the problem.
