Here is my problem:
My main OS is Vista Home Premium which I use for my work.
I run various Linux distros from DVDs that I had downloaded as ISO images.
Windows is just bad - memory management is just terrible but it has some good programs and games.
Back to Linux - I have problem in some Linux distros with internet connection i.e. no internet connection at all although it shows it is connected to the internet and gives me IP address and all relevant information in status bar.
Open SUSE and Fedora - no problems at all and rock solid - like them very much but problem is they come without flash so it takes abt 10 minutes to download them and as I run them from DVDs I have to do it every time so it is time consuming.
Linux Mint, Mandriva, Kubuntu and BackTrack Linux show me that I have internet connection, internet icon gives me all relevant information but when I open Konqueror or Firefox it gives me no internet connection page.
I noticed when my IP address is 72.xxx or 74.xxx it does not work but I do not have any problems with internet connection when my IP address is 62.xxx or 64.xxx - in that case both Konqueror and Firefox work properly.
My internet connection is provided by Bellsouth.net(AT&T) it is dynamic so it changes.
What is the problem?
Has IP number anything to do with it?
One more question real quick:
Is it possible to transfer ISO image from DVD to USB flash drive not as ISO image but as OS - same as it would be in hard drive but without going to hard drive first - can i extract ISO image as OS directly from DVD to USB flash drive? I would like to extract Linux Mint or openSUSE to USB flash drive.
If it is possible can you give me link for the web page where that is explained.
