If you're in any institution or hostel, you may have to set LAN settings manually. Could you please tell us more about the issue?

Can you ping/communicate to any other computer in your network? For eg;, in a terminal type:


Replace the IP address with your other computer's address.

Actually i created a new user with my name and deleted the student one .
The only solution to this problem is to completely reinstall the os!!

No need to reinstall the OS.
You do the following:
1) Press Cntl + Alt + f1 and enter to console mode.
2) Login with 'root' as user and 'student' as password.
3) When in you have '#' prompt (i.e, root user), enter the following:
    usermod -G adm,dialout,sudo,audio,video,plugdev,netdev,ssh,bluetooth,pulse,inet,net_raw "new-user"
4) Now enter "reboot" command to restart. Internet should work now.
