Hey, I'm extremely new to Ubuntu and I need some help please. Every once in awhile my internet would stop working for no reason, so I go and reset the router...no big deal.

Now even when I restart the router the internet wont work. It says I'm connected, but I still cannot browse any websites. I'm pretty sure I have all the settings for my internet connection right.

Please help figure out what the problem is and help me fix it. Just say if you need anymore information.

And I'm terribly sorry if this has been posted before

When internet quits what does(n't) it do? Does it just keep waiting for website, does it error? Can Ubuntu ping the router? Does it keep a valid IP address?

When I try connect to a website it just gives the Page Load Error 'Address Not Found'.Yeah, I can ping the router.

What exactley do you mean by it keeping a valid I.P. address?
