Question Problem with web browser DNS resolution


Perhaps somebody can give me a hint:

I installed the latest version of Mandrake 10.1 Linux and everything seems to work
fine apart from web browsing.

The system doesn't do a DNS from the browser (konqueror). I can ping or WGET a web
address (i.e. DNS is configured correctly and works), but the browser shows an
error page.
If I enter the IP address of a page, it opens alright.
If I first test a web address via WGET, it will later open via Konqueror.

This hasn't happened under SUSE, Knoppix or Windows.

Internet access is via a DSL router which is also used as the DNS server.

Any ideas anybody? I googled, but no luck.

Thanks in advance.

Firewall settings perhaps??

But if you set up dns and router properly at install time and it souds that you have, then the only other thing that usually will get in your way is a misconfigured firewall

Thanks for your suggestion.

I have tried it with the firewall disabled.
Mandrake Linux seems to only allow incoming restriction settings only anyway (from the standard desktop interface).

To make sure it is not the installation itself I have also tried a Mandake version that is startable from CD. Same thing. Web browser doesn't open web pages entered as www. , but does after a wget command with the same address.

Should I just use a different distribution?

:-)

Well you've got me tossed.

The only other place where you can enter IP type data is in Tools > General > Conection Settings , just for the sheer helluv it is this set to direct connection?

How did you get your distribution?? if its a boxed set I suggest you return it as flawed becase I have a similar settup and it works fine
If you downloaded it , it might be worth your while to just check the MD5 sums to make sure they match - definately a long shot

If you want another suggestion try UBUNTU Linux if you register at their web site they will actually send you a pressed copy of their latest iso
just a thought
