Hi, I have BT Home Hub 4, Windows 7 and Ubuntu 13.10 on my laptop (dualboot). When on Windows 7 everything is okay, wired and WiFi connection. I also connected without any problems using my Nexus 7 tablet.
I cannot connect to Internet using my Ubuntu. I am not good with network setups, so please be patient and very detailed with your answers.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You may also need to install Ubuntu drivers for the wireless network card.
I have just switched to BT from VirginMedia. Everything worked on linux before.
Ah, you didn't say that before, thought it had never worked. OK, are you using a home hub? If so the IP address range might be different to Virgin. Go to System tools > Administration >Network tools where you will find a dropdown list of network devices (loopback, ethernet interface and wireless) Select ethernet interface and click on configure. This will open another window, select wired and wired connection (x) click edit and tick box connect automatcally, save and repeat for wireless. Report back any problems
For the wirelss interface, you will also need to enter the WPA passkey
