Only MSN works, everything else on the internet times out.


I have two computers set up in my home. One with Windows XP Pro, and the other with Fedora Core 2. I just got done doing a fresh install of FC2, and now I am having major problems with my networking/internet connection.
I've tried disabling the firewall altogether. I can ping google and any other site without any problems. My windoze computer accesses the internet fine (which is the one I'm using now). The part that really stumps me is that aMSN connects fine. However, when I try using mozilla to access any website (even google.com), the connection goes to resloving host, then connecting, then it just times out.
I'm going through a Netgear Router and my DSL modem. I've tried connecting directly to the router and also just to the modem. I have an ethernet card in my computer, and a wireless card, but neither give me any luck with mozilla.
Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.

My /etc/resolv.conf file:

;generated by /sbin/dhclient-script
search domain.actdsltmp
nameserver 192.168.0.1
nameserver 205.171.3.65

(the 192.168.0.1 is my modem of course, my router is set up to use the 10.0.0.0 network)

My modem is 192.168.0.1 (with dhcp), my router wan address is 192.168.0.2, it uses dhcp to assign ip's on the 10.0.0.x network. My windows computer is 10.0.0.2, and my linux box is 10.0.0.3. "SPI Firewall" is enabled on the router, but the modem is just using the "basic" firewall settings, which is the lowest i can get it. There are no other computers on the network. Port forwarding is disabled, DMZ hosting is disabled, no services or sites are blocked.

Yes, I can ping the router, modem and my other computer.

Also, I am in the middle of installing gentoo (on another hd), to see if that will solve any problems.

you're trying to share internet between the computers right? and the router is directly connected to the internet right? I need to know otherwise it'll be difficult to help you.

yes, the router is directly connected to the internet/my dsl modem. and as far as "sharing internet", the router has a built-in 4-port switch (i.e. i am not using windows internet connection sharing), so i can go with or without the windows computer hooked up, but fedora still can't browse the internet.

so 192.168.0.1 is ur modem and 205.171.3.65 is ur isp addy.
in a shell window try typing
telnet www.google.com 80

( then send a request include everything bar wots in the brackets)

GET / HTTP/1.1
Host: www.google.com
Connection: close

after entering this press the enter button (as though leaving a blank line) and it should come up with html script (lots of it)
If it does then it`s not a dns problem but a network problem.
so let me know how that goes and then we can narrow down the problem :-)

ok, i decided to go back onto my windows partition to make sure my nic still works right, which it does. then, i rebooted into fedora, still doesn't work. i finished installing gentoo on it, and that works. so, i think i'm just going to stick with gentoo because i like it more anyway

thanks for all the help anyway. and by the way, i did get all the html code, so i'm guessing it was just a small networking problem.

Maybe it was a bad browser setting in Mozilla? Make sure it's not set to use a proxy server or anything like that. Just an idea. But since you have gentoo up and running, I guess it doesn't matter much.
