Beginner: Trouble with Netowork/Internet Pls help, Almost there :)


Hi,

I am running Mandrivia 2007 Free edition on my desktop. I am connecting to my router through a USB wireless device 802.11g. Mandrivia had no problem recognizing it and i set up all the stuff. I can now see my router and am getting a signal strength (85-95%). It says it is connected however when i try to launch a page in any browser nothing loads. My gateway and ip address are correct. I have been playing around with it now for a day and cant work out what could be wrong. My router is 3com ADSL Wireless 11g Firewall Router (1m old). I have my firewall disabled and do not have to connect with a wep encryption key. There are other pcs on the network connecting to the router running windows. Do I have to change something on my router or upload something for it to recognize linux or something? Or am I just missing something on my network settings.

I tried Ubuntu earlier with my laptop. also could not figue out the wirless. However i got internet to work by running a lan cable from my desktop (wirless, windows) to my laptop.

Once i get this to work I will finally stop using windows (bit sick of it).

Thank you in advance for your support!
With kind regards
-Axel

Have you tried pinging a know internet host by ip address?

Example yahoo.com:
ping 66.94.234.13

If that works and pinging the name "yahoo.com" does not work, then you have an issue with DNS.

What are the contents of /etc/resolv.conf?

Hey guys! I tried pinging google.com

[genfly@GeNfly ~]$ ping www.google.com
PING www.google.com (216.239.59.103) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 216.239.59.103: icmp_seq=1 ttl=246 time=72.0 ms
64 bytes from www.l.google.com (216.239.59.103): icmp_seq=1 ttl=246 time=93.7 ms (DUP!)

64 bytes from www.l.google.com (216.239.59.103): icmp_seq=22 ttl=246 time=44.1 ms

Then used Konq to connect to my router... for a sec it connected and said: checking browser then:


An error occurred while loading http://192.168.1.1/login.stm:
Timeout on server
Connection was to 192.168.1.1 at port 80

Im so close i feel it
