Hello I am very new to using dell computers and linux. I barely bought this computer a couple of weeks ago. It is a dell inspiron 1525 2 gig of memory, 260 gig hd, and Intell t2390 cpu. I installed ubuntu 8.04 when I got this computer and firfox was working correctly. But know I am in a hotel and it states that I have a connection with the hotel but I am unable to surf the web. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help.

It might be on the hotel's side of things. Maybe their network is done so while you can connect to the network, you can't get online. Have you called the front desk to inquire about that? Also, is the connection secured any way or do you need to login at a specific page?
