I'm rather new to Ubuntu and I am have a few problems accessing the internet through Ubuntu 12.04 installed on my desktop.
I've managed to install the drivers for the USB wifi (Netgear WNDA3100v2, entirely through the help of a few Ubuntu forum posts), and it has successfully connected to my wifi network. However, I can't for the life of me get it to access any webpages which I need to install a few applications. I am currently accessing this forum page via a laptop (with Windows 7) connected to the same wifi network, so I am fairly certain it is not a general internet access issue
Curiously, when I try to load a webpage, it doesn't immediately say "Firefox can't find the server at start.ubuntu.com", it hangs for a while (around 20 seconds) on the loading stage, and then displays the error message
I was hoping someone could help me?
