need help on internet connection setup


Hi, I am a newbie in linux, I just finished installing redhat 9.0 and it was able to detect my VIA VT86c100A Rhine-II PCI (D-link DFE-530TX) lan card. I was also able to create a xDSL connection using the network wizard. Both Ethernet and dsl connection was successfully activated.

When I typed in ipconfig in the terminal, ppp0 contained an ip address mapped by my network provider. However, whenever I try to access the internet (surf using mozilla), I always get an error message that the page can’t be found (for example, in accessing google.com, error message says:
"google.com cannot be found. please check the name and try again.")

--------
Below is the ipconfig result:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0F:3D:CC:77:C8

I hope that was ifconfig

Can you
ping 216.109.118.66
and
ping www.yahoo.com

It may be a DNS problem. Check /etc/resolv.conf It should contain a nameserver. You will need the primary (and its best to have the secondary in case there is a problem with the primary) dns nameservers of you ISP. Add them to /etc/resolv.conf like so
nameserver IP_of_primary
nameserver IP_of_secondary
