Hi,

Welcome to linuxquestions.org!

It looks to me like your problem is that the route isn't quite correct, at least not for browsing the internet. The route is indeed right to tell your machine where to send traffic to reach the 192.168.1.0/24 network, but it doesn't know what to do with traffic to any other network - hence the reason you can't browse the net.

What you need is to remove the route that you have and add a default route:

Code:
route add default gw 192.168.1.254
I'm assuming that 192.168.1.254 is the address of your router, if not replace this with your router's ip address.

Try again and hopefully should work ok!

Cheers,

Steve

I should have thought of this sooner, but, err you have got your DNS server's IP address in your /etc/resolv.conf haven't you?

Cheers,

Steve

A DNS server is how your machine knows what IP address on the internet to connect to in order to retrieve a particular website such as www.google.com

Without it, your machine won't be able to find anything out on the internet by name. On all unix-like operating systems that I can think of, the IP address of a DNS server is entered in the file /etc/resolv.conf - try having a look at
Code:
man resolv.conf
Your router may be able to act as a DNS server. This will almost certainly only work if it knows about your ISP's DNS servers. The best thing would be to ask your ISP. They should have given you the information when you registered your account with them.

Cheers,

Steve
