Acer One Linpus - 'Server not found'


Hi all,

I have had my little netbook for over a year now but I must admit, that Linpus and I do not like each other (thinking of having someone put Ubuntu on it - heard thats better).

Now I have moved and am trying to get my netbook to access the new internet connection. So far so good. The wireless connection is standing (100% connected), but now I get the message Server not found. I am using Firefox by the way. And yes, I have googled this problem, all plus are plugged, I have been online with this computer before etc.

And right now I am online with my second computer, which has no problems accessing the internet.

What now? I must also say that for a NETbook I am having a hell lot of trouble going online... Where other computers just connect, this little devil has problems very often.

Any advice?

From your description is sounds like there are not any resolving DNS servers assigned to the network. I ma not familiar with Linpus specifically but you would want to check the /etc/resolv.conf. You can add the public Google.com resolving DNS servers.

Code:
echo "nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4" > /etc/resolv.conf
