Newbie 10.1 networking issue, help!


Greetings, all

I have had Mdk10.1 installed since it was available for download.
Everything worked fine, and dandy for a long time, and then the power got shut off of the dsl modem, and now I have an interesting set of circumstances for internet.

1.) I can (in my user area) get to the internet, but most commercial pages (msn, google, this page, etc..) will not load, they jsut time out.

2.) I can get to any page through vmware on the same machine.

How can vmware (winxp) get to the internet on a mchine that can't?

Does this make any sense? What part of this needs to be reset? Argg!

Thanks to any who can help.

This is usually a resolver issue.

Your machine is not able to translate URL's to IP's...

your /etc/resolv.conf is probably incorrect.

How do I fix this?

This is the info in file......

search domain.actdsltmp
nameserver 192.168.0.1
nameserver 205.171.3.65

What should these ip #s represent? Is the first one (192.168.0.1) supposed to be my ip address on my routers network?
How is the vmware working? Does it resolve ip/ hosts independantly?

OK,
i found another post of basically the same problem.....

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...t=resolve.conf

Although, that post had no solution either.

Ive tried restarting machine, removing/adding connection, logging in as root, etc.

When i type ipconfig /all at a window in windoz I find the same ip #s as my /etc/resolve.conf
I'm at the end of my knowlege base!
Any further advice would rock!

WeEEEEEE!

I found a kind of low tech solution.
I removed the connection in MCC, and restarted the computer.
Unfortunately I don't know how that fixed it, so if it happens again I have no other resort.
Well, this is all a learning process, maybe someday I'll have learnced something ; >
