Unhappy laptop downloads great but won't allow browsing...


Hi - Installed Kubuntu 7.04 on my Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop: no problem. Downloaded modem driver from Linuxant onto my desktop hard-drive, burned it onto a cd, installed it on laptop: no problem. Entered ISP phone number, log-in name and password into KPPP: modem dials and connects: no problem. While connected I installed the 915resolution package: no problem. BUT - and this is where I'm stumped - although I am connected to my ISP, Konqueror refuses to connect to ANY website. Error message always reads:

An error occurred while loading http://www.yahoo.com:
Could not connect to host http://www.yahoo.com/.

So I reinstalled Kubuntu and a Linux driver provided by Dell suggested by one of your moderators. Exactly the same scenario. I installed Ubuntu instead of Kubuntu, and installed both above-mentioned drivers one after the other. Exactly the same thing happened in both cases.

Being new to Linux, I am running out of straightforward options. Any ideas much appreciated. Mike

What application are you using to connect?

Are you getting an IP address?

Thanks for responding. In Kubuntu I have been connecting with KPPP. Where do I look to see if I am getting an IP address? Mike

Let's see, can you ping yahoo?

ping -c 3 www.yahoo.com

Do any packages get dropped?

Hi - it looks as if they do! See below...

domi@laptop:~$ sudo ping -c 3 www.yahoo.com
PING www.yahoo-ht3.akadns.net (87.248.113.14) 56(84) bytes of data.

From 172.26.131.159 icmp_seq=2 Packet filtered

--- www.yahoo-ht3.akadns.net ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 0 received, +3 errors, 100% packet loss, time 10768ms

Thanks for your help and where do we go from here? Mike

Hmm, confusing. You haven't got a working connection right now but you did right after installing.

Try this:

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart


This is not a permanent solution but more like a test to see whether it gets you anywhere at all.

I look forward to your comments, however I shall be on travel until Saturday. If you are kind enough to respond, please don't take my silence as a sign of lack of interest...
Best regards
