I cant open internet web pages.


im connected to internet through a wireless router.

When i type "ping" my computer reaches the router correctly, but i cant open internet web pages.

I have other computers connected to the same and with them i can browse internet correctly.

This is the error message:

Address Not Found

IceCat can't find the server at

The browser could not find the host server for the provided address.

    * Did you make a mistake when typing the domain? (e.g. "" instead of "")
    * Are you certain this domain address exists?  Its registration may have expired.
    * Are you unable to browse other sites?  Check your network connection and DNS server settings.
    * Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy?  Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.

This are the ping results:

$ ping

Any idea?

Interesting: i can't ping as well, same result. Why you try to ping this specific address? Try to ping Google instead and post the output here.

Do you have the correct DNS servers in /etc/resolv.conf?
