Internet not working


Hi,
I have got Fedora 20 installed on my lab system. I am able to run internet on windows 8 but not on Fedora. In windows i have to make changes in port# and proxy server. Please guide me how to run internet on Linux. I have intel core i5 processor.

Does it show connected in Notification Area?
Did you add proxy and port in browser's proxy settings?
Are you using wired or wireless?

Hi,
Thanks. This problem is solved now. I am using FireFox Browser. I have done the required setting. Edit->Preferences->Advanced->Settings->HTTP Proxy & Port #.
