I just got a used laptop running Ubuntu 14.1. Problem is trying to launch Firefox which cannot seem to find the internet.

I have a strong wifi connection but Firefox tells me cannot find server at start.unbuntu.com

  • Can you ping google.com? – levlaz Jun 27 '15 at 16:57
  • No i cannot - i've tried installing updates using update-manager but it keeps telling me to check network / internet connection. Although network manager say connection good. – Troy Lovick Jun 28 '15 at 3:31
  • Can firefox go to any website? – Tim Jun 28 '15 at 11:16
  • Firefox does not connect with any website. Cannot ping google. Wifi properties shows good connection. – Troy Lovick Jun 30 '15 at 20:12

You've made a typo.
It's Ubuntu not Unbuntu.
This is the site: http://start.ubuntu.com/
