I have a wireless router with WPA. I manage to connect to the network, but I have no connectivity to the Internet and when I ping the default gateway, I do not get a reply.

I also have access to an unsecured wireless router and when I connect to that, I have connectivity to the Internet.

Furthermore, when I connect from Windows 8 ( I have dual boot ) I have connectivity.

What is the problem and how can I fix it ?

Check IP address on Ubuntu after connecting. ifconfig of ip addr in console or in network manager (dont know exactly where) – week Nov 30 '12 at 8:54
The address and the default gateway are set. What do you mean by check ? – coredump Nov 30 '12 at 13:45
Are you using DHCP? – week Nov 30 '12 at 14:06
Yes. I am using DHCP. The configuration of ip, mask and default gateway is automatic. – coredump Nov 30 '12 at 15:27
Let's start with some basics... What version of Ubuntu? What is listed in the file /etc/resolv.conf? – Ian Atkin Nov 30 '12 at 16:34
