mandriva free spring 2010 network internet unknown host


Hello all,

Just loaded the new mandriva and it looks great.

My problem is that while the network icon shows that the network is working and connected, I can ping my router but I am receiving unknown host when I try to ping say www.yahoo.com . I have disabled ip6 in the network settings.

First question:
Should I use the dns setting? If so, should it be with the local ip or the router ip since I do not use a registered domanin name?

Second question:
While I disabled the firewall, I do not see selinux settings. Is seliux used by mandriva?

route -n displays the typical:
192.168.1.0 0.0.0.0
169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0
0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1

Advice or suggestions?

thanks

Hi, Welcome to LQ!

LQ has a fantastic search function that may save you time waiting for an answer to a popular question.

With over 4 million posts to search it's possible the answer has been given.
selinux is in the Mandriva kernels, but I have not used it. And know not how to invoke it.

your dns should be set to the router, not the machine. (or modem, ..)

example...
Code:
IP address: 192.168.1.103
Gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS: 10.1.1.1
route -n does not show the dns server on my system.
Code:
sudo route -n                                                                               (02-08 22:01)
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
192.168.1.0     0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U     10     0        0 eth1
169.254.0.0     0.0.0.0         255.255.0.0     U     10     0        0 eth1
127.0.0.0       0.0.0.0         255.0.0.0       U     0      0        0 lo
0.0.0.0         192.168.1.1     0.0.0.0         UG    10     0        0 eth1
What I have found is that our household router (192.168.1.1) is connected to the adsl2 modem (10.1.1.1)

These addresses are the same as the access pages for setup for the relevant devices (internal web-pages)

I hope this helps, regards Glenn

ps, you should be able to get the dns for your device from a web search.

Hello GlennsPref,

Wow, that's the first time that I have heard of having to put that ip number into the dns.

It works.

Thank you
