HELP!!! PPPSetup and other Internet Problems - Slackware 10
 
HELP!!!! I have two problems in my internet connection in slackware 10

1. I tried to run PPPSetup and answer the questions the best I can. if i don't know the answer to the questions, I simply press enter.... when i run ppp-go i was able to connect. but when i try to view webpages on the browser it can't display any webpage. it says something like can't find www.yahoo.com. check the name and try again.... etc....
but when i'm using kppp, i can view webpages on my web browser. in kppp configuration, i only provided the Name of my Connection, the phone numbers, the modem device, the username and password. that's it... and i can instantly connect into the internet and view webpages.

2. i can't view webpages when i connect to kppp as a non-root user. the same error message like the one i mentioned above is displayed on the screen. but if i login as root and use kppp to dial a connection, i can successfully view websites on the browser


what do you think guys is the problem :(

probably, the dns isnt resolving...
edit /etc/resolv.conf
and put there your DNS server provided by your ISP
incase you dont know which DNS server... try with 4.2.2.1
