If all the other computers work correctly and yours not go back to Windows. Maybe then you could have some support from the “idiot”. Since you are on Ubuntu with these problems, what do you expect. That we configure Ubuntu for you. I don’t know your Ubuntu setup. I don’t know what you configured and so on... So good luck and maybe there is a willing “ idiot” on a linux forum willing to help..

Daru, first of all, what is a mikrotik server? I'm assuming you mean a hotspot router.

Second, as Dude already pointed out, if everyone else connects fine, the problem MUST be on your end, not the server's.

Third, this really sounds like a browser redirection problem. Ask in the Ubuntu forums first. Have you upgraded to the latest version of firefox? Have you tried any other browser? The lastest quantum versions of firefox do act up a bit on some sites. There's a lot to try.

Finally, these are the mikrotik forums and you're not the admin of the router. Instead of calling the admin an idiot, you could've asked nicely and perhaps he would've lend you a hand to try to work out the problem together. And if you identified a problem with the router's config, then we would really be in a position to help you. But you've not provided us with anything to go on!
