No Internet After Updating to Latest Kernel


Hi,

I recently ran updates through the Up2date agent and updated my kernel to the latest available. Since doing this I am unable to browse the web through my Linux Box. I run Squid on this machine also. I have tried with Squid disabled and checked all network settings are correct. Strangely I can still access the machine through vnc and ssh. My internet connection is through a router which the Linux machine is connected to.

If I switch back to the previous kernel there are no problems... Any ideas?

Can you ping the router's ip with the new kernel?
Maybe up2date didn't get all what's needed. I don't use it so can't advise you on it. I believe it's a front end to yum, but as I remember, you can disable some options. Drop down to a command line and as root;
# yum update

I can ping the router. I can even access remote ssh and vnc services on the linux machine but any web browsing doesn't work...

All this is in you new kernel of course, but sounds like your DNS is off. Check /etc/resolve.conf.

What happens when you try this in your browser;
http://72.14.207.104/

Nothing happens when I enter that address. It's strange, if I revert back to my original kernel then there are no problems. Might have to do that for now.

I'm getting the same problem, same distro, so I'd like to resurrect this...

I'm specifically having the problem with 2.6.12-1.1378_FC3. No problem with 2.6.11-1. In 12-1, I can ping out, ping in, the PC receives an IP address, but with the browser...nada...

What do you think? DNS server problem?

Nope, it's not DNS. Checked <<resolv.conf>> and <<resolv.conf.predhclient>> and there are nameserver entries present in both.

Also, entered an IP address into a browser. No success..."An error occurred while loading http://72.14.207.104"
