Proxy settings? Linux browser to router! :S


Hey....i've just installed linux and i am trying to get on the internet. My computer accesses the Router via an ethernet cable. However, my linux web browser will not go on any sites. I have got it to ping google.com and access google once....however, that's the only thing. My router is a D link G604T. Any help is appreciated
thanks

Open up a terminal and ping the IP for the router first - can you ping the router?

Yes, sorry. Anything I ask you to type would be in a terminal (like command prompt)

You can always open another one and type into that. When you get a usable one, type this:

/sbin/route

and paste back what it says (shouldn't be more than four or five lines)

OK, so if you type "ping mygateway.ar7" it tries to ping your router's local IP address? What happens if you type "ping www.yahoo.com"?

Sounds like your internet connection is fine then. You definitely can't browse to www.yahoo.com? What happens when you try (what does it say in the status bar while connecting, what does it say in the main window)?
Check the Settings menu, under Configure Konqueror and make sure your proxy settings say "connect directly to the internet" (not trying to auto-detect anything). As a last resort, try a different browser.
