at the top the sonar icon has the waves moving out and back continuously.

I tried changing to online, and also tried 22.214.171.124 as the URL but
Server not found .... try again
according to Windows the network is WPA encrypted,
presumably on Ubuntu I should select "Wireless Security" to
WPA & WPA2 Personal
if there is any info I can get from the Windows side which does function
let me know, eg I found its WPA encrypted from the Windows side.
or if I should install a different version of Ubuntu,
