Glad you're enjoying Ubuntu!
About your Dodo USB - does this USB device connect you to ADSL or 3G
A couple of steps you could take to help find the problem. All of these
are done in a Terminal, it's just easier that way ...
(1) SEE CONNECTION STATS
- Terminal Command : ifconfig
- Check to see that your PPP0 or similar shows you have an IP Address
(2) SEE IF YOU CAN CONNECT TO AN IP ADDRESS
- Terminal Command : ping 126.96.36.199
- See if you get "replies" or do you get nothing
- Either way, wait 30 seconds then press CTRL+C
- You'll see some stats at the bottom - take note of these
(3) SEE IF YOU CAN LOOK AT A WEB PAGE
- If (2) gave you replies, go to firefox and try http://188.8.131.52
- Does this work?
