Firefox can't connect to server


At first, I was trying to update Yum and it gave several messages saying it can't connect to the website.
This problem has happened in Fedora 12 for a week now.

I can use the Internet in Windows but not Linux? All the settings are correct: It just won't connect to the Internet.

Thanks for the help.

How are these settings?

Can you ping on IP?
Code:
ping 173.194.37.104
Can you ping on name?
Code:
ping google.com
Did you configured the default GW and DNS servers correctly?

Never mind. Fixed it:

I had to go to the bookstore to get a new Fedora 13 CD and install it to the hard drive from LiveCD.
I got everything correct.

I think it might have to do with Fedora 12 EOL issues?
