    Cannot connect to internet after 12.04 install

    Hello,

    I'm having problems connecting to the internet after install Ubuntu 12.04, I can confirm that there is nothing wrong with my router. I have a ethernet cable connect to my Ubuntu machine and all worked fine in the previous release of Ubuntu.

    But for some reason with this release, its causing me problems.

    Any help appreciated.

    Regards,
    Stephen

    Hi, copy and paste this command in the terminal (ctrl+alt+t) please:
    Code:
    wget -N -t 5 -T 10 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/wireless_script && chmod +x wireless_script && ./wireless_script
    It will download a script and create a text file in your home folder with wireless information so we can see the condition of your wireless at this time and the Mac address, WPA key and WEP key are removed for your security, then reply back and attach the netinfo.txt file.
    Thanks

    Thanks Wild Man,

    I tried this command on my Mac Book Pro, but I'm getting the following error:

    -bash: wget: command not found

    Hi, were you connected to the internet with your wired connection when you ran the command? did you just copy and paste the whole thing for accuracy?
    Thanks

    Hi, but your wifi connection is not working right? so please use your wired connection and run the command again.
    Thanks
