Wow! I was wrong on Terminal too! Was giving commands in some other window.
I went through all this.
None of them worked for me.
Some have no effects and some are not applicable.
Please help me >_<.
I cannot connect to this site, ubuntu.com, launchpad.net ...
I cannot update, upgrade or install anything...
Although I can ping them all.
Thank you in advance...
I tried everything!
Start another thread. This one is marked as Solved and will get little notice. Supply information as to how you connect. Wired/wireless. Adsl,PPPoE or cable etc. Also post what exactly you have tried.
126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 are the Google public DNS IP addresses.
So your system gets configured to use Google's DNS to find the IP address of websites. I think this should be mentioned in the solution. I wouldn't want to use some random DNS servers somebody posted here. :)

ok. i am new to this forum. anyways if ur unable to access the sites ..ha. i had same problem. here is the ultimate solution...
n then follow command...this will set ur net by it self.. u dont need DSL settings or anything else. restart os...then u will see..tht u dont hav any conection to dial . just open browser...net will work.with all sites. if u wana disconnect net..just plug out ur wired lan ...hav fun.gd.tc :D:D:D
two important things in any internet connection is that router provides the correct internet DNS and DCHP server is enabled in router setup.
