Hi, Sorry total nube here,

I can ping my router, i can ping google and i can ping the ip address you get in the ubuntu help

If i type 192.168.1.1 i can get my router control panel

Any help would be much appreciated.

Do you ping Google by name or address?
Verify valid nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf. I presume the gateway is correct, but you can check route -n to be sure. Another solution I've seen mentioned is to change MTU value (down from 1500 to 1492). Check it via ifconfig -a.
