Internet Problems


Hello, I just reinstalled linux after using windows. Myinternet isnt working, but many oyher computers here work online. (They all use windows.) I know my DNS numbers, but don't know where to input them. I am running SuSE. I am using the Konquerer Web Browser also. So if you know where to input DNS numbers, please tell me!


-Thanks

You have to put them at the /etc/resolv.conf file... Have you ever tried ping some ip or www??

No. You have to open a konsole for example and type:

ping 64.179.4.149

but before put your nameserver in your resolv.conf and try again.

It's in /etc. The DNS numbers should be those supplied by the admin or isp. You can also use the local ip address of the router connecting to the Internet.
