Are you using a wireless connection?

I believe the wireless is suppose to be wlan0. Are you able to connect to the wireless now?

My computer says I'm connected though a wireless network I reconnected to it and I got the same thing and no wlan0

Please edit you post with the output of ifconfig. If only one has an inetaddr that one is probably your IP.

If you are in a University, you should ask the Computer Center to give you an appropriate IP address. When you setup the wireless connection, it is better to manually provide an IP address, rather than allowing the system to automatically search for available address. Otherwise, you will have problem when you restart the laptop.

In addition, you may also ask the Computer Center to help you setup the connection. Basically, in your laptop (Ubuntu), you can either right click the connection icon -> edit connection, or go to system -> preference -> network connections. On the wireless tab, select the one you used (remove others) and click Edit, then in IPv4 Settings, select Manual, type in the IP address, gateway, DNS, etc. and in Wireless Security, type in the password. After that, the computer will use the same IP address all the time.

Give me a vote if it helps ;-)
