samsung i830w tethering


hi i am using fedora-9-live-usb and when i plug my phone into the usb slot the network manager automatically creates a eth6 (samsung sch-i830) connection and connects to it.

ifconfig shows that eth6 has a:
inet addr:169.254.2.x
bcast:169.254.2.255
mask:255.255.255.0
...

but when i try to ping www.something.com it says:
ping: unknown host www.something.com


am i missing something ?

thanks,

Any chance you came across the above linked page when you searched for help? If not, please see if anything in there is helpful in getting your similar situation to work. Is your internet connection similar to the one in that thread?

If that doesn't help at all (or better yet, if it does help) let us know. Also, please tell us anything that you have tried so far while trying to get it to work. That way, folks won't be suggesting stuff you've already done.

hi, i just read it and i am not using any linux programs. the network manager applet seemed to automatically connect (like it was ethernet or wifi).

on the phone i hit a few options that seemed (settings->connections, settings->network cards) and so now it doesnt give me an ip address but will still display eth6 when i do ifconfig.

it's weird i dont know what i did so i cant set it back. (internet explorer on the phone works but for some reason the picsel browser doesnt).

on the phone i went to start->settings->connections->network cards->remote-ndis host and selected use specific ip address: 169.254.2.x (my subnet mask and default gateway are blank; also in the name servers tab dns, alt dns, wins, alt wins are also blank).
i did a tail -f /var/log/messages before i plugged it in:
