Im a bit puzzled.
I managed to get onto this site by first going ping linuxquestions.org in a console and then typing in the ip address in mozilla.
PING linuxquestions.org (188.8.131.52): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 184.108.40.206: icmp_seq=0 ttl=50 time=60.6 ms
--- linuxquestions.org ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 1 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 60.6/60.6/60.6 ms
However if I just type linuxquestions.org in my browser I get the site could not be found error after it takes forever resolving host.
Im quite sure this is a DNS problem but I dont know how to fix it.
Im running SimplyMepis2004 on a Dell I8200 laptop and using a Siemens Speedstream Pcmcia wireless card that talks to a D-Link 614+ router that talks to a Belkin Befsr41 router that talks to a motorola cable modem.
In the mepis system center, I can get my wireless card with an ip address using dhcp, but not with static (even using values assigned when using dhcp).
Heres my output of ifconfig and route
eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:02

and this is what my etc/resolv.conf looks like
Anybody have any suggestions?
