Wireless Router D-Link DSL-G604T - intermittent web page retrieval on Fedora Core 4


Hi folks,

I'm having some problems with my wireless D-Link DSL-G604T router (well, it *MAY* be the router!). The symptoms are as follows:

On all of the Windows machines in the house, `the internet' (by that I mean all SMTP, HTTP, FTP services etc) works fine with both wireless and wired LAN using the router.

However, I have used both Mandrake 10.1 and Fedora Core 4 without success on wireless (that's an ENTIRELY different story!). I also get very poor results using wired LAN through the router.

On Linux I am able to resolve DNS entries for external sites and ping them. However when viewing the web pages through Firefox (or Konqueror) I get extremely bad web page retrieval performance. Most of the sites time-out but the occassional site will display as normal (after a noticeable delay).

What additional information do you require from me? I realise I have been a little vague, but am quite happy to provide more info if that will help! In particular, are there any log files which might help me diagnose the issue?

Thanks for your time,

Mike.

odd that it isnt all systems. but you need to put the dns servers into the router. hardcoded. i know you probably get the dynamically or pppoe but you need to put them in. then the resolving will be faster. then just make sure that the /etc/resolv.conf file is showing either your dns servers that you put into the router, or the router address itself.. that should fix it. if you need to you can go to static ips on you linux box, and then put in the dns servers on the linux box, cause editing that file will only work til reboot.

That worked great!

I opened up /etc/resolv.cfg and changed the nameserver to a BT Openworld DNS server address I dug out on the net (NOT on their own page mind, it seems useful information like that is NEVER easy to find!). All webpage requests work immediately. I'm even writing this post from my Fedora install! ;-)

Thanks edong, much appreciated.

Mike.

yup. not a problem. i wish all problems were that easy. i actually had that problem a while back when my isp was experiencing packet loss, and thus i was loosing packets to the dns server. but hard coding other servers worked great. i wrote a script that would do it automatically then just executed on reboot, or after renewing.
