    Can you ping 8.8.8.8?
    Can you ping the IP address of the system running the hot-spot?

    This is what the Ubuntu Desktop Guide says:

    Connect to mobile broadband
    You can set up a connection to a cellular (3G) network with your computer’s built-in 3G modem, your mobile phone, or an Internet stick.

    • If you do not have a built-in 3G modem, connect your phone or Internet stick to a USB port on your computer.
    • Open the system menu from the right side of the top bar.
    • Select Mobile Broadband Off. The Mobile Broadband section of the menu will expand.

      If Mobile Broadband does not appear in the system status menu, ensure that your device is not set to connect as Mass Storage.
    • Select Connect. If you are connecting for the first time, the Set up a Mobile Broadband Connection wizard is launched. The opening screen displays a list of required information. Click Next.
    • Choose your provider’s country or region from the list. Click Next.
    • Choose your provider from the list. Click Next.
    • Select a plan according to the type of device you are connecting. This will determine the Access Point Name. Click Next.
    • Confirm the settings you have selected by clicking Apply. The wizard will close and the Network panel will display the properties of your connection.


    Some phones have a setting called USB tethering that requires no setup on the computer. When the setting is activated on the phone, the connection will show up as Ethernet Connected in the system menu and USB ethernet in the network panel.
