i just finished installing the wlan drivers for a dell truemobile 1180 usb adapter (uses prism2 chipset). i finally figured out how to properly connect to my router, and i tested the connection using ping and linneighborhood to see for my windows pc's.
i configured the resolv.conf file to my nameservers (in the format of:
nameserver IP Address
and I saved the file. i went into a browser and went into my router's config, everything worked perfectly, asked for my password and I was in. the problem is that that is the only page i can connect to. if i try any normal website (www.hotmail.com
for example), it wont go into it. i tried a bunch of pages, just in case the other ones could've been down, but no webpages other than the router's config load up.
im not sure where the problem might be lying cuz i have my ip properly configured (as far as i know) and i ran the instructions exactly on the wlan driver's guide.
it says i have to do a port reset (due to a bug in the prism driver) so i just unplug my adapter, plug it back in, i run the rc.wlan script, then i run the commands in order to load the driver into memory (wlanctl-ng, ifconfig, etc), and thats it, im connected to the router.
as far as i know, it should be loading up pages....anyone have any ideas on why this is happening?
