    Firstly, Please post the connection settings.
    Code:
     ifconfig
    Secondly, please tell which network card you have

    Code:
     sudo lshw -C network

    Secondly, please tell us the output of the second command.

    it looks like the ip address is assigned correctly. Can you ping any site? Type this in terminal

    Code:
    ping google.com
