Router ADSL connected but i can't use browser or apt


Hello I have a problem with my router.

I just got the router from my telephone company and the router is already configured to work out and looks like is working.

The router has a dhcp server and a firewall NAT.

With windows xp everything works right, the dhcp server works and I can easely access internet,

but I have a problem with Linux, I changed my network settings so Linux can accept the DHCP server and in fact doing a ifconfig I see that the DHCP server worked well. my computer has the correct gateway, the DNS has been configured.

I try with a ping on google site and the ping is working but when I try to run the apt-get update or I try to use my web browser looks like I have no connection.

I have installed a Debian Sarge and I tried on a Ubuntu as well but they give me the same problem.

Can someone help me out?

Sorry if my english is not so good :-(

Sorry I just realized I put this in the wrong directory :-(

Maybe there's a firewall blocking?
Start with checking output of
# iptables -L
Or when you pinged - did you use IP or name? Maybe check a few things, report output of 'iptables -L' plus:
# ifconfig
# route
# cat /etc/resolve.conf

I tried to use another DNS instead of the router ip but it works at the same way. I tried with a traceroute and it works no problem with a host name.

Dont' know really what to do.

Ohh I'm using a debian sarge.

You need to get correct DNS-servers.
Check with your ISP, normally this is assigned automatically but for some reason not for you.
Then edit /etc/resolv.conf, here's mine:
search uppsala.se
nameserver 192.116.1.2
nameserver 192.116.1.3

Hi Skie,

As i told you before, check your dns.
Access your rooter by telnet.
something like telnet 192.168.1.1
then enter user and passwd
then the commands:
cd ..
cd etc
cat resolv.conf

then you get your real dns. Put them at your computer save changes and reactivate connection and if the problem persists come here.
