  1. All,
  2.  
  3. Cannot connect with my laptop. Running Kubuntu 14.04 LTS on my laptop. Problem started when a friend connected to internet via MetroPCS Hotspot on my machine. After that could only get page saying Wifi Hotspot was not part of my Metro plan.
  4.  
  5. Was originally having connection issues. Wrote all this up at:

  9. Now know I've resolved the connection issues, but something in DNS config is not right so even though ifconfig wlan0 shows me with an IP assigned, ping -c 3 www.google.com or anyother URL or IP address does not actually produce any traffic.
  10.  
  11. Needing help desperately as need to work from home via my own phone HotSpot and cannot.

  13. Cheers!

  17. OK running ifconfig wlan0
  18. wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 78:92:9c:25:b5:d0

  27. I think this is a DNS config issue as running "dhclient wlan0" runs for 10 min, hangs, aborts then sets the IP to the previous default IP. I think if I know which file in the config to look at and edit this can be a simple fix but clueless myself on where to look!
