Is it wifi or wired?

1. Always prefer storing username/password in router settings. In this 
way other people can also use interet at your place/office.

username - admin
password - admin / password (just use one of these)

2. If wifi and you have broadcom chipset then Ubuntu 12.04 has a bug for 
these chipsets. Run following commands everytime you log in then you 
will be able to connect through wifi.

terminal> sudo modprobe -r b43 ssb wl
terminal> sudo modprobe wl

I would recommend creating bash script for these.

3. Ubuntu 12.04 supports mostly all ethernet chipsets. Just after 
following first step plug in the cable and net will work.

NOTE:- Above are generic instructions. Without hardware/connection 
details I can't provide much help.

-- Chetan.
