Internet not connecting on Asus M51Sn running Ubuntu 10


Hello all,

My home network is has a Netcomm NB5 ADSL modem with a D-Link DI-524 wireless router (WEP encryption). While I can access the internet using the Vista partition, on the Ubuntu partition, I cannot access anything. Further investigating the problem, I have noticed that there is something wrong with the DNS on the Ubuntu partition. Pinging the IP address of a website (such as linuxquestions.org) loads up, yet, when I type in the Domain Name, there is an endless wait.

I have already deleted and re-entered the contents of the resolv.conf file as well as try to change the settings but to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
AdlPK

You should try to change the DNS entries from the GUI part in Ubuntu. It is managed by the Network manager and hence it entries will be reset once system reboots.
You should see the network icon in the right top corner. Right click the icon and edit the connection and change the DNS settings from there for the settings to be persistent through reboots.

Can you use open dns and see if it works? It could be issue with your dns. Try pinging your dns.
