Xubuntu connects to Router but not to the Internet?
 
I just installed Xubuntu Linux onto my PC. The installation went fine, as usual, hooked it up directly to download the GPU drivers and the Wi-fi drivers 'n such.

When I connect it to the router via Wireless, it connects to it fine. But I can't use the internet! I load-up Firefox, and it does that "Server Not Found" thing. I try to test it out threw Synaptic PackageMngr, it doesn't find anything. I can't do anything that has to do with the internet!

Any ideas?

Raj asked a good question, but additionally you could try pinging your router ip address, if this does not come back with a reply then your wireless connection is not connected. If you do get a reply, try pinging 4.2.2.2 if you do get a reply you have internet access but no DNS resolution. try these things as a starting point.
