I'm guessing lawrence's answer involves adding the OpenDNS servers but try his fix first. If unsuccessful we will dig deeper

i just seen your smart ass comment buy the way installed this shit 17 hours before my meeting didnt expect these problems.can u show me anywhere on this unbutu package thats says install at your own risk your internet might be down. plus i was told to install this onto my cpu by someone from unbunt before they sent me the shit i can send u the email if you would like. i need myt cpu restored or access to the internet i didnt think it would take 30 plus hours to have a fuctional os.

Its only non fuctional due to user ignorance. You are using an alien OS so you will get all manner of teething issues, or none.

Linux and distributions of Linux come with no promises and no SLA so if it breaks you get to keep both pieces. The community strives to support as best we can, and the developers strive to provide quality software for free. Just because someone tells you to install something doesn't mean you have to.

The CPU isnt faulty. The CPU is working fine or your system would simply not bootup.

All linux software is covered by the GPL. If you run through the installation installation process up to the point of partitioning you can read the license you accepted when you installed (but obviously failed to read) and you will see wat s essentially the GPL license as well as some other bits:

I also suggest you click "release notes" when you see this screnn as part of th installer:

Can you help with this problem?
