I have installed Windows7 and ubuntu 12.04 in dual boot mode. after installing i have connected my MTS modem(dial up modem) in ubuntu. It worked finely. Wen I booted my laptop in Windows 7 mode,modem couldnt connect and no website could open.
What can I do to alleviate the situation?
The following is the situation:
Laptop: Lenovo X200 Tablet
Dual boot with Windows 7 and ubuntu 12.04
ethernet works perfectly on windows 7. Works sporadically on ubuntu 12.04. Tried getting a solution on IRC channel. No progress on that front either.
I was suggested to live boot Ubuntu 12.10 to check if ethernet is working but the monitor blanks in the process and gets stuck.

I use a USB EDGE modem for connecting internet in XP & Linux. Previously in Ubuntu it was detected as Prolific pl2303 converter and with WVDIAL I used internet without any problem. Recently I upgraded to 12.04 and my modem just stop working. lsusb shows the device and dmesg confirms that it is attached to ttyUSB0 but when I give command wvdial then nothing happens.
Earlier I used Windows 7 and the modem used to work absolutely fine. Even when it disconnected it used to reconnect automatically without any trouble. But then I installed Ubuntu 11.10 on dual boot and set up the modem connection properly but the modem now disconnects much more frequently(eariler it disconnected once in 5 hours or so and after ubuntu in 5 minutes!!).
Hello all, my name is John and I am currently living in china but I'm from Virginia, I have just installed Ubuntu on my HP laptop and I am having a problem with the internet connection. At work there is a wireless connection that the computer will connect to with no problem but at home i have a Modem/Wireless route unit I'm guessing that's called a mini PPPOE?
