What do you mean by "not connect to browser"?.

Are you posting this message under Windows?, or another laptop?

Need the details...

Which linux are you using and what kind of network do you have? You may have a connection, but you have to configure linux for it. DHCP will usually be found automatically, but not PPoE for example.

What information is supplied by your Internet Service Provider about their service and how to make a connection? There is usually some guide for Windows that will give you some idea of where to start.
