Sorry to start a new thread but I have searched these threads for hours (read: days) without a whole lot of progress. There are thousands of "Help connect to internet!" threads already I know but im stumped here. My problem is:
I have a compaq armada m300 (laptop) with intel etherexpress 10/100 NIC. I am running Slackware 10 with 2.6.8 kernel.
The OS sees the NIC
lspci -v output:
00:09.0 Ethernet Controller: Intel corp 82557/8/9 [Ethernet Pro 100] Rev 9
I assume this is a good thing. Next, the computer is using the NIC to do something.
Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr (mac adress here)
inet addr: 192.168.0.102 Bcast: 126.96.36.199 Mask:255.255.255.0
I assume this is also good.
Next, I can ping the router and get 0% loss. I can also ping LQ.org (188.8.131.52) without loss. Also a step forward.
I can also bring up LQ.org in Konqueror by entering the IP.
The problem is that I cannot bring up any website using its domain name (example: linuxquestions.org does not work).
Can anyone give me some direction? It is like I have 95% of a internet connection here.
I am semi-new to linux so please gear your response accordingly. :-) Thanks in advance.
