I am now trying fedora core 2 distro after a lot of linux distro's (mandrake suse red hat etc). My modem is an external serial modem ( netmod ) . To connect to the internet i am using a programm called xisp - an internet dialer ( http://xisp.hellug.gr
). I have set it up working fine , and i seem to be connected to the internet just fine. I get an ip adress etc etc BUT even the fact that everything seems to be connected i can't start a single web page! Mozilla tells me that the xxxx site could not be found and konqueror tells me uknown host ! I have searched the /var/log/messages where it configrms that i am connected to the internet and that i have exchanged only a few bytes with the "outer world". It looks as though i am connected to the internet but i can'reach it! Why is this happening?Is there any other log i should read to give me any clue? Help me plz!! All ideas r welcome!
PS1 The same things happened also with kppp
PS2 I have disabled the firewall to be sure that that isn't what blocks me from connecting to the internet
