So this has been bugging me for a few days now.
I tried connecting through a softlayer vpn. Their website ran a java applet and I noticed now that I can only connect at work through the one wifi connection at work. All other wifi connections or ethernet cable shows that everything is connected, but I'm unable to ping anything. I feel dumb but I don't know how to debug this. Any help much appreciated. This has been frustraing. I'm running Ubuntu 14.
