Please help me with my internet connection


Hello there.

I am a RH 9 user and I have problems configuring the "Ethernet Connection" as described in the RH 9 manual.

After having configured it and pressed "Activate" it seems to have worked out alright since I don't get any error messages. But when I try to access a webpage I get unkown host.

Here is my ISP info:

ip-number: 213.141.83.254
netmask: 255.255.255.224
gateway: 213.141.83.129
dns: dns: 213.141.80.1 and 213.141.78.2

Here is the output of ifconfig:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Here is the resolv.conf file:

nameserver 213.141.80.1
nameserver 213.141.78.2

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is the output of me pinging my own ip-number:

This is the result of /sbin/route anyway:

Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
213.141.83.224 * 255.255.255.224 U 0 0 0 eth0

hmm...it looks like ur routes aren't setup properly. default
destinations should be routed to the gateway. which might
explain why u can ping urself but not connect to the outside
world.
