Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have just tried with Knoppix, it automatically manages to connect to network properly (ie I can go to 192.168.1.1 Fine) but exactly the same as FC.
i can ping google.com and get results
i can ping msn.com and get no returns whatsoever
and visiting google.com gets me nowhere.
in Network settings, i got 192.168.1.1 set up as Primary DNS.
Also, in the router, it is set for Auto Discovery DNS Server, but in the next box for where you can manually specify them its got 184.108.40.206, Primary only.
i hope this information is useful
has anybody not ever had this problem before?
by the way, both PCs are using the Intel Pro 100+ PCI Network card
My guess would be that you have a crappy router. Sorry. Now, we'll try to work around. Depending on your ISP, find out one of their nameservers, and replace the 192.168.1.1 in /etc/resolv.conf with the IP of that nameserver.
The D-Link DSL-G604T Wireless ADSL Router . . . System Requirements: Computers with Windows, Mac or Linux Based Operation Systems with Installed Ethernet Adapter.
The router works fine, im using it to access the internet from a Windows XP computer, and resorting to windows on the linux box is the last thing I want to do.
Bypassing the router is not really an option, as I do not have a seperate ADSL modem, the ADSL Router is all I got.
I can access the router control panel fine from Linux (typing in 192.168.1.1 in firefox browser) and mess about there. Its just accessing websites that dont work. Is there a setting that I am overlooking?
Now to use the nameserver, I'll phone them up, well its out of hours now, I'll send an email.
I really do appreciate your help. I really do not want to give up on this and resort back to Windows. I want to be proud of a fully working linux system
Originally posted by Matir No problem. If you bear with us, we'll get you to a fully working system.
Im just glad your bearing with me and my seemingly uncurable problem
anyways, i tried doing replacing 192.168.1.1 in resolv.conf with 220.127.116.11 but no luck. infact, pinging that IP address from windows brings me no results, a dead IP address.
however, under Management IP tab in the Router Control Panel, there is:
IP address : 192.168.1.1
NetMask : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 18.104.22.168
I tried using 22.214.171.124 in resolv.conf also, but it dont work. The number is pingable however.
I only get the most results when the nameserver in resolv.conf is 192.168.1.1.
Thing is, pinging msn.com and others, they ping the proper IP address, and for msn.com i get the proper hostname, just no responses. with google.com i do get responses, I just can not seem to visit it with firefox.
I tried using your nameserver, but I get far better performance using 192.168.1.1
Infact, I could not even view linuxquestions.org using 126.96.36.199, maybe I need to re-enable IPv6 in Firefox for that?
IPv6 is listed when doing lsmod, however when using rmmod ipv6 i get the message "ERROR: Module ipv6 is in use"
Originally posted by Matir Yeah, make sure ipv6 is not in your /etc/modules.autoload.d or similar configuration.
Also, try maybe even deleting ipv6.ko (ipv6.o on 2.4) and then rebooting. (It would be somewhere in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/)
Im havin some difficulties locating modules.autoload.d in my /etc/ folder. Can not seem to find anything of a similar name. Im using Fedora Core 4.
Can not seem to find ipv6.ko in my lib/modules/[mykernel-FC4-etcetc]/ anywhere in here.
What I did manage to find is this:
/sys/module/ipv6/ with refcnt as file and sections as folder. Is it safe to delete this? Or renaming it?
I tried to use rmmod ipv6 -f, but it wont work, says Resource temporarily unavailable, but from what I have gathered, you must compile something in the kernel to allow this.
I am getting sooooo close to getting my internet on track.
Good news is, I can access this site on the same computer now No more running up and down the stairs
