Any help greatly appreciated as I am a total novice.
Thanks in advance

Try

menu -> Terminal
sudo pico /etc/resolv.conf
remove the line nameserver 127.0.0.1
CTRL X -> write -> yes
Now try to get on the internet.
I generally don't use salutation, valedication, or please when answering your questions. I'm not a jerk; you have a question, I have a possible solution.
