Wireless connection shows up but can't connect to internet on ubuntu 12.04

I'm using an Asus G50V and I'm completely new to ubuntu. I just installed it and can connect to the internet with a wired connection and through wireless from my windows vista that I installed wubi on, and I can connect to my wireless network, but I can't actually connect to the internet through my wireless network.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Network controller is an Intel Corporation WiFi Link 5100 according to lspci if that helps

EDIT 2: Also, the connection somehow started working after I decided to unplug my ethernet cable for the third time and headed upstairs after giving up for the day.. not sure how it happened, but after restarting, the connection stopped working again..
