Kubuntu sees wireless connection but not internet

Asked by don vosper on 2011-06-17

Tried Kubuntu 11.04 from CD Auto connected to wireless network and internet in seconds first time.
Installed Kubuntu 11.04 as only operating system on separate drive on a wireless only PC.
No auto connection to wireless.
Tried Kubuntu again from CD. This time no connection to wireless network.
Reinstated hard drive.
Searched for answers on forums.
Used following settings for BT home hub.

Kubuntu sees wireless connection now but no connection to internet via Browser.
I'm probably missing something but would like to know what.
Many thanks.

Can you ping 8.8.8.8?

Tried that and it said no access to device.
Tried another set of figures for manual config, don't remember where I got them from as I've looked so many postings,
but now it works.
Even got the wireless printer working!
Many thanks
