Exclamation Fedora64 12 Internet Problem


I just installed Fedora64 12 on my laptop. When I tried the Live CD all wen \t well. Now that I am running the full version I can only access internet pages linked to fedoraproject.org...?? not other pages work like google or yahoo or anything else.

This is bizarre. Has anyone else had this issue? How can I get access to the full internet? I have never seen anything like this before.

Regards,

LeechFace

My guess is that maybe you don't have internet access at *all*, and the stuff you're seeing from "fedora.org" is just static HTML that happens to be on your hard drive (or CD-ROM).

SUGGESTION:
Please take a look at this link:
Fedora 12 Network Troubleshooting

Who knows - maybe the whole problem is Firefox ipv6?

The symptoms you posted make it sound as if DNS is not set up correctly. You should have a /etc/resolv.conf file.
It should contain the IP addresses of DNS servers for your ISP. Here is what mine looks like. Keep in mind the IP addresses should be different, and point to your ISP's DNS servers.

Quote:
cat resolv.conf
# Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8)
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN
nameserver 208.67.222.222
nameserver 208.67.220.220
Since you can get to some pages, although limited, the basics have to be there, IP address, default route etc.

paulsm4,

I went there and found this: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=239877

I don't see what the solution is specifically. Maybe you could take a look at it and see what they did to fix this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


camorri,

As with the link above this is what was in my .conf file in the etc folder looks like:

# Generated by NetworkManager
nameserver 192.168.0.1


Regards,

LeechFace

Hi -
Quote:

nameserver 192.168.0.1
That's generally a Good Thing.

I'm going out on a limb here, but:
1. I suspect you've got a valid resolv.conf. I further suspect it was (re)created by Network manager at boot time, and that 192.168.0.1 might be your cable or DSL modem. Which implies a) 192.168.0.1 is your DHCP server, your gateway and your DNS server, and b) basic networking is all OK.

2. Please cut/paste the results of "ifconfig".

3. Please cut/paste the results of "ping 192.168.0.1".

4. If "ifconfig" shows a valid IP address, if it's a *different* IP from "192.168.0.1" (perhaps "192.168.0.2") and if you can "ping 192.168.0.1" ...
... then networking is OK, and your problem browsing is elsewhere.

5. Try "ping www.yahoo.com" or "www.google.com".
If it resolves with "ping" ... but doesn't show up in your browser ...
... then your browser is the problem.

6. Please try steps 2 .. 6 first. But indeed your assigned DNS server might be bad (as you suggested in your link).

In any case, please post back what you find.

Thanx in advance .. PSM

So now I have wired access. But the 8.8.8.8 keeps changing back to 192.168.0.1 and sta\ops working until i change it again>>?? Also I installed my wireless driver no problem, I see all of the available networks, but when I try to connect to mine it asks for the passphrase as it should, and then cannot connect... and it asks for the password again... oc\ver and over, ir \t will connect 1 out of 5 times but it says the signal is 0 when it is 100%.. and then asks for password again, I provide it and still no connection. Then I go back to wired and oh what is this.. I have to change 192.168.0.1 to 8.8.8.8 AGAIN. Please advise, I am getting frustrated with fedora.
