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.
