Debian Woody: Can't access internet through router, but can access network computers
 
I am running Debian Woody (3.0), and I can't access the Internet through my LinkSys router, but I can ping the router and another computer using the router. I'm not on wireless. I can't access any websites, nor can I ping any outside IP addresses. When I ping an outside IP, I send the packets out, but get nothing in return. I don't get a "Network unreachable" or anything like that, just ... nothing. Also, my router is set as the default gateway.

Does anyone know what's wrong, and/or a possible solution?

Thank you

Just to add something, it works with Knoppix and Ubuntu LiveCD, so I know the computer can get online through the router. I think it has something to do with my Debian install.

check DNS. make sure your /etc/resolv.conf is setup correctly

I figured it out. I edited resolv.conf so that the nameserver was the router's IP. Then, a little dhclient on eth0 and everything worked.
